Montreal ComicCon 2017: Cosplay time!

It’s geek fest time: It’s Montreal ComicCon 2017!

2017-07-07 16.04.16

I love summers in Montreal. The festivals are in full bloom. The ComicCon is one of my very favorites and one I never miss. I know that there’s bigger ones in the US, but Montreal’s very own has already grown big enough that the crowd size is already a bit overwhelming for me. My favorite feature is always the cosplay and the cosplayers themselves.

Things to look out for: An amazing zombie two-face, the soot-coverer Woodsman “Got a light?” from Twin Peaks: The Return, Kubo and his two evil Aunts from Kubo and the Two Strings, Speed Racer, The Flintstones and Pennywise from the It remake.

I gotta say, that zombie two-face makeup was just amazing, so that’s my pick this year. But the Woodsman and Kubo’s Evil Aunts get the runner-up spot.

That will do for now.

Montreal ComicCon 2016: The Cosplay Showcase

There were many things to do at the Montreal ComicCon 2016, but you know already which one is my favorite. There’s a ton of guest stars, there’s a chance (and a price, telling it like it is) to meet and get an autograph or get your picture taken with one of them. I really try to avoid the lines whenever I can, but there will be a line or two regardless. I did pickup a Hydra pin, managed to listen to a cosplay panel and did get the chance to talk to Eliza Dushku while getting her autograph. Well, she did most of the talking. I might have stammered a bit.

However, my favourite thing is always the cosplay talent shown by a lot of those attending. Yes, there was a lot of Kiritos from Sword Art Online and Harley Quinn is still the most common female cosplay although The Suicide Club movie version is getting popular.  However there’s some great originality displayed. My favorite this year goes to the team cosplay of Alice: Madness Returns. A close second goes to Hodor, because Hodor.

Up for you to find: A female Immortan Joe! Hodor! Rufio! A team cosplay of The Fifth Element, a team cosplay of Inside Out, a Lobo/Kiss cosplay and the captains of the Quidditch teams for Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.

Let’s not delay this one any further. Here we go!

Coming up next! Fantasia opens this Thursday!

That will do for now.

Montreal ComicCon 2015!

I love that Montreal has its own flare of geek culture. The Montreal ComicCon 2015 feels local, packs a punch and although it can get a little crowded it’s still manageable yet brings in big guns. I’m actually more about the cosplay, as you probably can guess. I did managed to score one autographed poster from cosplay extraordinaire Monika Lee. I was also pleasantly surprised at the number of Agent Carters in the house, thanks to the presence of Hayley Atwell. Also, a lot of Game of Thrones fans in the house with the appearance of Gwendoline Christie and Jason Momoa and that also meant a lot of GOT cosplay as well.

Highs: Monika Lee, a Stormtrooper couple, La Muerte from Book of Life, Ghostbuster Janine, Steampunk Ghostbuster, a shower, Captain Harlock and Kei Yuki, Brienne of Tarth, Arya Stark, a Tusken Raider, the Jawas and the Daltons (from Lucky Luke).

That will do for now.
