I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything inte...

It's the best cosplay from Katsucon 2014


BOOKER! CATCH CATCH CATCH CATCH CATCH!
Feb 21
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
Beat Down Boogie went to Katsucon 2014 and as always, have captured a ton of great cosplay on video. The usual mix is present. You got your Zelda cosplayers, a bunch of Master Chiefs, Mass Effect characters, and so on. My favorite moment is in the first part, with all those Elizabeths and Bookers from BioShock Infinite playing catch.

Roundup for Saturday and Sunday

A lot of people seemed to like the videogame themed Dragon Con roundups for Friday and Saturday, so here's one more from Matt Zeher that encompasses Saturday night and all day Sunday. There's some Mortal Kombat, GI Joe, and Marvel in there, as well as a few Fallout photoshoot shots. My favorites are the Hotline Miami group cosplay, and the simple, yet fun concept of Portal Link.
