Cosplay: the art or practice of wearing costumes to portray characters from fiction, especially manga, animation and science fiction movies or books.
Nerd: an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a non-social hobby or pursuit.
Hopefully that helps set the scene. Imagine a convention hall filled with socially awkward people dressed as their favorite movie or comic book character. You should have a pretty good idea of the uniqueness of it all.
Comicons can be found in most every state in the US and many major cities around the world. They are now the setting for major movie studios or video game designers to announce their newest projects. Hollywood movie stars are not the only celebrities to be found there either. Comic book artists and 1980’s B-level TV actors are the royalty of modern conventions. Comicons are wild, extravagant and attended en masse by nerds and the nerd chic.
WHAT IF some of the characters at these conventions were not playing make believe? What if they were real?
WHAT IF the highest fantasy warriors and scariest creatures could be real and waging a battle in plain view?
After all, bringing fantasy to life is essentially the definition of cosplay in the arena of a Comicon.
What Fantasy Warriors and Scary Creatures would you like to see in “At the Corner of Crossroads and Cosplay”?
We would love to know!!!!!!!
