Shag Matthews of Once Upon A Geek was gracious enough to offer his massive collection of photographs from Dragon*Con 2010 to a gaggle of bloggers over a week back. I've been running buck wild with them, and still have a "wave" or two of posts left before I'll consider my end of the horse good and beat to death. Surprisingly, few others have taken up Shag's offer, and even his own Firestorm Fan hasn't run his plentiful Nuclear Man snapshots. The one exception on my own end has been here at DC Bloodlines, because there weren't many characters parading around that fit our interests. I never saw a clear view of Green Lantern John Stewart, and I've never seen anyone do Captain Comet or Bronze Tiger. There was a female Creeper that would go with a series of posts I have planned, but I'm not actually a Creeper fan, so I can't be bothered. However, she does remind me of Siobhan Fahey from Shakespears Sister, and that's worth something to me.
You know who else I never cared about? Victor Stone. Even as a kid reading The New Teen Titans, I found his "I'm a monster" (or more to the point, another Thing) shtick tired. When he wasn't wining, he was just sort of there, or else playing the jobber as "Machine Parts Break Dramatically Man." I just can get into this guy, and likely never will. However, I feel like posting something on this lazy Sunday, and this costume looks cool, so Cyborg gets the nod!
Finally, here's a nice fat list of all the related cosplay posts I'm aware of to date. I'll swing it around this way once or twice more (note any conspicuous absences?) Of special interest is Shag's photographically enhanced diary of his con experience, Dragon*Con 2010 Recap – My Weekend of Insanity (lots of pics!) Give it a click, won't you?
