Are We Still Talking About This Bun Toons?!?

Everything Old Is Nuisance Again!

Sigh…

This is, of course, a portrait of no one individual in particular.  Unless you recognize yourself, and then it’s you.

THE LAST CRUSADER

Of course, our hero is the only one in colour.  He’s the only one in the real world.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Just in case there was some confusion as to when cosplay started, and how recent a trend it is.

No one would dress like the dude in the blue outfit during any decade by the 70s.

I rest my case.

This didn’t happen recently.  Who cosplays as T’Pring?

  1. More Sweating Crusaders plz.

  2. And then there is this:

    That is Pat and Dick Lupoff As Mary and Captain Marvel At WorldCon In Pittsburgh (1960).

    Their bright cosplay costumes drew attention to them and their Xero fanzine, which had a section devoted to comic books. From that sprung comic dedicated fanzines which lead to an organized comic fandom. This lead to back issues being sold via mail order, comic price guides, comic history research (including piecing together credits) and eventually comic conventions. I think it’s a reach to say there wouldn’t be comic conventions without cosplay first, but it did help draw attention to comic books when not many people were looking.

    So it is really silly to bitch about cosplay “ruining” conventions. They’ve been a part of comic convention DNA from the get go.

  3. That’s such a cool photograph. I love the silly grins on both of their faces…this is fandom at its best.

  4. And ever since the beginning of cosplay, it has always been a device for men to look like their beloved characters and to find their inner child.

    And ever since the beginning of cosplay, it has always been a device for women to get attention by wearing as little clothing as possible.

      there fixed it

  5. Hmmm, maybe that’s why Steve Ditko only ever attended one comic book convention, back in 1964: there were too many cosplayers and they ruined it for him 🙂
