Warning: this kids' Spyro costume is f*cking nightmarish!

Behold! The LORD's cruelest joke! Cast out from Heaven, rejected by Hell, and feared by the realm of mortals. The rules of nature apply not to this misshapen beast, for it is wrought of no natural element. It exists without e...

NYCC: Cosplay and show floor gallery

It's crazy how New York Comic-Con is slowly turning into San Diego Comic-Con. Well, there's nothing in the way of sunlight or summer temperatures here (it's cold and windy), but the crowds are similar. It seems like more and ...

On the first two press-only days of Tokyo Game Show it's all business suits and messenger bags, but when the event opens up to the public the cosplayers come out. It's funny how you'll never see them around the convention cen...

The PAX community group shot, plus cosplay pics too

Holy crap, it's Dean Cain! Dragon*Con 2012 cosplay, day 2

Maybe it's just because I keep happening to stumble upon reruns of Lois & Clark lately (no, that's exactly what it is), but I've got Dean Cain on the brain. What a kwinky-dink that he just so happens to pop up in a few Dr...

Meanwhile, at not-PAX... Dragon*Con 2012 cosplay, day 1
