You’re Not Seeing Double!

TwoStanLees

What’s better than meeting Stan Lee? How about meeting two of of one of the greatest creators in comic book history? Photographer Chris Dorsey was there last weekend to capture the magic as cosplayer “Agent Stan” met his real life counterpart, Stan “The Man” Lee at Planet Comicon in Kansas City.  Surrounded by the IBOTs (Iron Brothers of Topeka, KS), Dorsey documented all the fun, including some incredible cosplay all weekend at the convention.  Check out more of his excellent photos on his Facebook Page!

Convention season is approaching (actually, I’ve got three cons this month!), and I’ve put together a checklist for con-goers getting ready to go to their next convention. If you’ve never been to pop culture convention, or even if you’ve been to dozens, it’s always good to be prepared. Check out the list of things to take and even research before going so you can have the best con experience ever. There’s even a downloadable version of the checklist, including tips for cosplayers!  Do you have any advice for folks getting ready to go to their next convention? Share them with us in the comments or on FB!

Cosplay at O Comic Con

Those may not be the droids you’re looking for, but O Comic Con’s inaugural show was definitely something to see, especially the cosplay. (All photos courtesy of Brent Schumacher from BPI Multimedia).

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasuring of taking The Costume Wrangler’s Closet to O Comic Con, the first pop culture convention in the Omaha, NE region.  The expected turnout was estimated to be around 3,000 people.  They had twice that over the course of three days, and attendees did not disappoint when it came to the cosplay.

SheHulkFrom She-Hulk, to Thor, to Anime characters, Steampunk Wonder Woman, kids in costume, the 501st Legion, a kick-butt dinosaur, and so much more, there were tons of great cosplayers strutting their stuff at O Con.  For more of the extraordinary cosplay that was at O Con be sure to take a look at professional photographer Brent Schumacher’s galleries here!

Meet the Iron Brothers of Topeka

Have you heard of the Iron Brothers of Topeka? They’ve got some of the coolest cosplay I’ve ever seen, and it was especially cool to see them at Figments and Filaments in Kansas City.  The convention itself was pretty small, so we were able to get up close (and yes, that’s me) and get pictures.  By the way, that’s the Iron Brothers’ very own cosplay Stan Lee.
