A Risen Dragon – Dragon Con That Is, And Only Sort Of
So, in something resembling defiance of the long haul panicdemic, Dragon Con has resumed this year and currently as of this writing in session. True, they’ve deliberately limited the number of attendees to only slightly above half their normal number, and certain favorite, public events have been left off the schedule, but the convention is happening.
So, in support of Dragon Con, here are some lovely cosplay babes, since they’re actually the favorite part of SciFi conventions like Dragon Con for many attendees. And, like the convention itself, posts like this are something of a tradition with me. 😉
Take me down to the purradice city Where the catnip’s green and the girls are kitties Take me home (oh, won’t you please take me home)
Yes, Please! While I’m not that inspired by catnip – though I do grow it in my front garden to attract the neighborhood kitties – I’d love it if somehow I could be taken to where the girls are kitties. 😉
Nekomusume are Nekogami
PRO TIP: Don’t be thatWeeb! Or, if you prefer, don’t be a Baka Minikui Gaijin! Treat those Cat Daughters (Nekomusume) like the Cat Goddesses (Nekogami) that they are. You’ll go farther that way and won’t be quite so much of a painful-to-witness embarrassment.
NOTE: The much more common term would be simply Baka Gaijin (Stupid/foolish [non-Asian] Foreigner). I chose to make the point stronger by adding Minikui (ugly in the sense of being painful to see). It also is a riff on the longstanding “Ugly American” stereotype.
Also, just as a personal note on language, idiom, and the subtle shadings of meaning and expectation, I prefer Nekomusume (Cat Daughters) over the equally or more common term, Nekomimi (Cat Ears). Both, however, are in very common use when describing Cat Girls.
Scifi/Fantasy conventions are, if not the most, then one of the most hard-hit of “industries” by the pandemic has been conventions. They essentially went out of existence in 2020 and many of them will take years to recover … if they recover and resume at all.
So, to add to the effects of the Concellation 2021 FB group – a group as ragtag, chaotic, and eclectic as any Con, Gods bless them – here’s a grouping of cosplay babes for our mutual enjoyment.
