We knew it would come back after the smashing success of the first round. But San Diego Comic Con has made it official. The Her Universe cosplay fashion show will be returning this year to SDCC.
From the press release:
The Her Universe Fashion Show, hosted by actress and Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein, returns to San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with an all new group of aspiring designers. This year, 25 finalists will present their original “geek couture” designs in the runway show to compete for the opportunity to design a limited edition fandom collection with Her Universe for leading specialty retailer Hot Topic. The 2nd annual Her Universe Fashion Show will take place on Thursday, July 9th at 6pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego. More than 2,000 fans are expected to attend this exciting runway show celebrating fangirl fashion and pop culture.
Last year there were 34 designers who walked looks for the competition, so the cut back to 25 shows that only the crème de la crème will be showing. Also of note–all 25 designers are new–so companies that showed last year but didn’t win, like Geekie Fashion Award winner Castle Corsetry, weren’t eligible.
MCM London Comiccon is one of the best places to see the best of UK cosplay. With record attendance this year, the folks at Sneaky Zebra got tons of great footage, which they’ve edited into a music video.
Oh and if you’re wondering, the song the video is set to is “Atom Bomb” by The Str!ke. Fantastic editing job.
Is there anything more steampunk than the anachronistic futuristic concept of a World’s Fair? Clearly not, which is why the greatest gathering of Steampunk cosplay happens at one. In New Jersey, natch.
I have been scouting for pictures from it, and today happened upon not one, but two videos from Beat Down Boogie highlighting some of the best of the best.
The brand new Spider-Gwen series of comics only hit stands in February of this year, but it’s quickly become obvious that a female SpiderMan, with Gwen Stacey in the suit, is just what fans have been looking for. Spider-Gwen has already got Emma Stone announcing she wants to play the lead role when they make a movie, and even her own hipster memes. Now WeLoveFine has released a clothing line based on the character, including hoodies, knit cardigan, and leggings.
