So, one of my other costuming endeavors is being very active on a little forum known as the Superhero Costuming Forum. I assist with photoshoot planning and direction at our biggest con of the year, Dragon*Con, and recently I was made an Admin. This year, we had the fabulous opportunity to work with the guys from Beat Down Boogie and Distractotron, documenting some of our shoots and gatherings, including our two giant comic shoots, the Giant DC Photoshoot and the Giant Marvel Photoshoot. Each one brings literally hundreds of costumers of all skill levels and we get some fantastic group shots. It’s a heck of a gathering, especially when you count all the “regular” con-goers and photographers that come to see, and a ton of work has to go on behind the scenes to make the shoots and some special events at the shoots happen. This year we hosted a proposal (aided by Dean Cain himself!) and a wedding.
The guys at Distractotron recently uploaded their video from the Giant Marvel Photoshoot and the Avengers Assemble Photoshoot, which included a cameo by the incomparable Stan Lee! Excelsior!
Send the guys at Distratortron some love! And be sure to subscribe to their channel if you love seeing costume and con-related videos, as they still have a ton more to come. I do appear several time in the video, as I was one of three people helping to wrangle and arrange the hundreds of Marvel costumers into place. You’ll find me walking around in a pleated orange half cape in my Siryn costume.
