SDCC 2015 – Cosplay 101 Panel

After braving a packed trolley ride, massive SDCC crowds, and a map we couldn’t quite figure out, the three of us (Jada, Elizabeth, and Kathryn) managed to be the very last people into the Cosplay 101 panel before they closed the doors. We had to stand for the whole panel; totally worth it.

Vote for Women of Comicbook Cosplay’s Calender Cover Girl

The Women of Comicbook Cosplay are at it again! Fearless leader Derek Fuego and his staff of tireless geeks, nerds, and pretty sure at least one marsupial have been strong supporters of the coplay community for years. Gathering submissions from conventions and photo shoots from around the world, WoCC has showcased women of all of cosplay skill and sizes so they can get the praise they deserve for their dedication, as well as helping costumers and photographers raise awareness of their talents.

For five years the crew at WoCC have been gathering twelve of the year’s best submissions into one outstanding calendar for cosplay enthusiasts to enjoy year ’round.
