Mini Avengers Assemble!

Every time I’m dressed as an Avenger, and I spot a kid dressed as an Avenger, I try and get a picture snapped with them. Can’t believe I haven’t got a Cap or Hawkeye or Hulk yet! I’ll have to find some as Captain Marvel.

I THOUGHT I HAD CAP SOMEWHERE

You’re doing research in the wrong direction, buddy. Here you go.

I have it really stuck in my head. Now, you will too.

My Friday morning at DragonCon was AMAZING.

This is what cosplay/costuming is about, for me.

Ms. Marvel is me, BelleChere
Power Girl is Contagious Costuming
Huntress is GillyKins
Wonder Woman is Margie Cox

All costumes made by the respective wearer.

Thank you to The Superhero Costuming Forum for organizing the entire JLA vs Avengers event!

Thank you to George Perez for not only making a cameo, but for staying around for so long!

Thank you to the photographers who captured the entire thing! Patrick Sun, Contagious Media Productions and Danny Hunter.

And here are links to the JLA vs Avengers videos that were made:

On the 10th anniversary of JLA/Avengers, I had to opportunity to be one of the photographers for this JLA vs Avengers shoot at Dragon*Con.

It was an amazing experience. Here’s a few shots, and you can check out more here at this flickr link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/patloika/sets/72157635377421360/

Thank you Pat!! I’m so happy this was so well photographed. This was my favorite photoshoot/event this DragonCon.

For anyone looking, I’m Ms. Marvel.

DRAGONCON 2013: JLA vs THE AVENGERS


This is one of the best DragonCon souvenirs! The guys at Contagious Media Productions filmed my absolute favorite group photoshoot this weekend: the epic JLA vs Avengers fight. There’s so much to see in this video, and so many great costumers, that I think I’ve watched this five times already. George Perez was in attendance and makes a great cameo amidst the fight - his expression is priceless!

The Superhero Costuming Forum always arranges the best comic photoshoots and I was honored to be hand-picked to be their Ms. Marvel.


Also, big kudos to Caitlin, who was the classic Power Girl I faced-off against, and who was laughing just as much as I was when we were fighting, hahah!

Don’t be scared of bald little Jews.

SIX HOURS AWAY! I am excite. I wanted to make a compilation picture of me as my favorite Avengers, but I just don’t have a local photog. So here’s a collage!

Have fun at the movies!

For your consideration. I, of course, will be seeing the Avengers. Likewise, I will be making my donation to this very worthy cause - one of my charities of choice for years now. I hope all you comic fans will do the same!robbinsstudios:

The Avengers opens in theaters in the US on May 4th, and it’s going to do blockbuster business. The individual films featuring these characters have already  grossed more than $2.2 billion dollars - that’s greater than the Gross National Product of almost half the countries on Earth - and it’s not unlikely that The Avengers will earn a hundred million dollars on its opening day alone.
This represents a pretty big payday to a lot of people - the actors, obviously, will take home pretty big paychecks. The director and the writers are well-compensated, and certainly the executives who greenlighted this project get to sit back and rake in large bonuses and healthy salaries.
Well, you know where this is going; shamefully, the people who aren’t making a big profit from these movies are the people (and the families of the people) who did the essential work of creating them in the first place. It’s not just Jack Kirby, either, or (Black Widow and Hawkeye co-creator) Don Heck, but also Steve Engelhart, Peter David, Herb Trimpe, Jim Steranko, Roy Thomas and dozens more - the artists and writers who refined and defined the characters appearing in this movie, who fleshed out the original creations and molded them into the figures we cheer for when we see them on the screen.
Some very sensible people are calling for a boycott of this film on those grounds, but I think it’s fairly obvious that a boycott of idealistic comic fans isn’t going to accomplish much - it’s not only comic book fans who’ll be dropping a collective billion dollars over the next eight weeks to see this movie, it’s going to be a lot of movie-goers who haven’t read a comic since they were kids, much less know anything of the controversy.
Plus, of course, you - the collective “you”, representing comic book fans all over the world - want to see this movie. And you’re going to, most likely, right? Even though you know of the morally shady practices of Marvel towards its creators, they’ve got you hooked. Don’t be ashamed, they’ve had you hooked for years. It’s what they do.
So how about this: You’re probably going to go see The Avengers and, judging by the early reviews, you’ll probably enjoy it. How about - as a thank you to the creators who brought you these characters in the first place, who gave you something to enjoy so much - you match your ticket price as a donation to The Hero Initiative? 
THI is a charity which provides essential financial assistance to comic book professionals who have fallen on hard times; for decades, the comic industry provided no financial safety net to its employees, most of whom it regarded only as freelancers and journeymen, meaning they were offered no health insurance, no unemployment insurance, no retirement plans - none of the financial support most of us enjoy from our jobs and careers. A small donation will help this agency provide a valuable safety net in times of need to these beloved entertainers.
I don’t plan on seeing The Avengers, but I’ve donated $15 - the price of a 3-D ticket - to Hero. If every concerned comic fan - every superhero aficionado who learned to live by the lessons of altruism and sacrifice taught by these comics - donated the price of their ticket, well, it may not hit a billion dollars but it’ll bring in a lot of money for a good and relevant cause.
One last note: Remember what Spider-Man always says? “With great power comes great responsibility”. The lesson in that is that everyone has great power. Spider-Man’s great power is being able to lift a bus. Your great power is the ability to help good causes do good work for good reasons - so why not go be a superhero instead of just watching them on the screen…
(PS: “Liking” this post is nice, thank you, but reblogging/retweeting it helps get the message out and would be even more appreciated)

Consider me “assembled” on THIS initiative. What a great idea. Along with the CBLDF I fully support the Hero Initiative. Thanks guys and gals who reblog this and donate as well!

So, hey, Boston. Who’s with me? I might just have to go dressed up as Ms. Marvel. Female Avengers represent! I look forward to seeing how dorky I’ll look with the 3D glasses over my Ms. Marvel mask.
