Sometimes Cosplay Goes Wrong

At least the Harvey Birdman cosplay is the bee’s knees. This is the first Birdman/Harvey Birdman mash-up I’ve seen, and Only Leigh nails it. But that’s to be expected of the Internet’s best geeky cartoon lady.


Family Guy Cosplayer is the Greatest

More props to this guy! I love New York Comic-Con! I went as Henchman 21 once and it was just radical. I couldn’t do the voice though. If I could do the voice, I’d be getting major babes. This Peter Griffin cosplayer knows how to do it right! I believe this is part of a documentary, which itself is pretty neat.


6 Best Cosplayers at Boston Comic-Con 2014

Hey everybody! You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting anything new to Henchman-4-Hire over the past few days. That’s because I was on vacation visiting friends and family in the Boston area! I had a blast, but didn’t have regular access to a computer, so I missed out on some quality blog posts. I didn’t miss any geeky news over the weekend, did I? DC hasn’t announced their upcoming movie slate, right? My good friend Alyssa helped out with a cartoon, but for the most part, your favorite blog and mine has been quiet. So I appreciate you guys and gals visiting even while I was gone!

Don’t worry, I’m back now, and still on vacation, so expect more updates over the next few days to make up for what I missed! And to start things off, how about a taste of Comic-Con?

I went to Boston Comic-Con this year with my friend Kristi McDowell, who had her own booth at the con, selling her self-published comic A Planet’s Cry. I couldn’t be more proud of Kristi, and I know she sold a lot of books. I’m hoping to join her next year with my own comic…but more on that later, kiddos. For now, we all know one of the best parts of Comic-Con is seeing all of the costumes! I love cosplayers. I’ve done it a few times myself, though I haven’t shared very much here, because I’m a hideous monster who looks bad in photographs. So enough about me, let’s get on to the good cosplayers!

Join me after the jump for the six best costumes I saw at Boston Comic-Con this year!

Cosplay with a Purpose

The Screen Team made another neat song about cosplaying, and I think all geeks can take this to heart.

What is up with the woman in these videos? I’m sure I’m not the first person on the Internet to wonder this, but I think she’s just there to look pretty and offer…other services. Well she does both very well. And speaking as a guy who is out of every woman’s league, that girl is totally out of that guy’s league. Just sayin’.

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered Boston Comic-Con!

I have returned to the blogowaves a champion, having successfully conquered the monstrous event known as Boston Comic-Con 2013!

If you’re just tuning in, I went to the Boston Comic-Con last weekend, my first visit to Beantown’s comic book convention. I’ve been going to conventions for a few years now, and Boston is my third locale after Baltimore and New York. I haven’t been to San Diego yet, mostly because I live in New York and am mostly broke all the time. It’s not cheap to fly out to California just to be stuck in a massive, unwavering crowd of comic book fans. Just sayin’.

I had an awesome trip. The Boston Comic-Con was smaller than New York, but was still a ton of fun. There were thousands of fans, many many costumes, and more geeky merchandise than I could buy in a lifetime. And seriously, I’d buy it all if I could. I’m that kind of insane. You can also read about the many reasons I love going to comic book conventions on a previous List of Six. They’re just so much fun!

Join me after the jump to hear my tale of Comic-Connery, and check out my awesome, homemade cosplay costume!
