BOSTON COMIC CON 2014
That special time of year for all of those fanboys and girls has once again come and gone, but it will not be forgotten! (At least not until next year's con)
As myself and my comic book colleagues entered the illustrious golden gates of Boston's Seaport World Trade Center, along with the rest of New England's geek, nerd and fanboy community, it was almost impossible to contain our excitement. Once through the gate, we were each handed the annual program, featuring none other than one of this year's most popular Marvel Comics characters, ROCKET RACCOON from "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY," Marvel's most successful box office hit to date.
Once on the main floor of the con, my team and I were awestruck by the numerous "cosplayers" from almost every comic book, video game, tv series and comic/sci-fi/horror- related film imaginable. Here are some of my favorite "cosplayers" from this year below, in no particular order (all photography by Jevon Renee) :
2014 Boston Comic Con: Best of Cosplay!!
|An "All-Female" Avengers Team!! Can someone say, GIRL POWER?!!|
|Gotham City "Goddess of Greenery" Poison Ivy, (left), Roger Rabbit's vixen love interest, Jessica Rabbit, (right), and the WWE's Carlito "Caribbean" Cool, (center)|
|Quite the impressive wingspan on The Dark Knight!!|
|These two youngsters must have visited Stark Industries before the con, because their Iron Man and War Machine suits are on point!!|
|A sexy Star Wars alien babe escaped from Jaba the Hutt's lair to spend some time with us!|
|The "New England Ghostbusters," posing with my good friend Jevon in front of the infamous portrait of "Vigo, the Scourge of Carpathia" from Ghostbusters 2|
|Nightcrawler making some serious headway with Fiona of "Adventure Time."|
|Gotham City vixens Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn, up to no good as usual. The women of Gotham City are insane, but damn do they get this "vigilant geek's" motor running!|
The Goddess of Cosplay: Ivy Doomkitty!!
|One might assume that Ivy gets her professional name from some of the comic book characters she is known for playing. (A mash-up of Poison Ivy, Doctor Doom and Black Cat perhaps?)|
|This stunning beauty held a cosplay-oriented Boston harbor cruise last Saturday.. wish I could have been a "fly-on-the-wall!"|
|Ivy as Captain Marvel this year!! (Alongside Mistress Death, a Batman/Deadpool mash-up, Venom and Black Cat!|
|Not only was this starlet in charge of the 2014 costume contest, but she also ran seminars on "cosplay fundamentals," such as costume design and acting!|
