I can’t believe Baltimore Comic-Con is this weekend! While the show includes Friday, I’ll only be there Saturday and Sunday. Saturday I’ll be dressed as Elektra from Daredevil (Netflix) and Sunday I honestly have no idea what I’m wearing yet. I’m skipping the wig for my cosplay which means if you see a short haired Elektra, it’s me! It was causing me too much stress and I figured, screw it. It’s supposed to be fun and I want to be comfortable and have my photos look good. Speaking of photos, I have a session with a photographer on Saturday at 1PM and I am super excited! I can’t wait. She’s local to the area and if anyone else is looking to have photos done, check out Depth of Light Photography. She’s only there on Saturday though, keep that in mind!
As far as panels go, here’s what I’m hoping to check out:
11:00-12:00 – Cosplay on a Budget
You know you want to cosplay, but how can you do it without draining your wallet? Come check out some simple and creative tips and tricks for maintaining a budget while making epic cosplay.
1:30-2:30 – DIY Cosplay
As cosplay has grown, many have seen very elaborate cosplay that may cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Many do not realize however that sometimes, many of the tools and props needed to cosplay we either have right at home or can be made on our own. In this panel, we will talk about how some cosplays that we want to make may be right under our nose. Hosted by Harry Crosland.
11:00-12:00 – Black Mask Comics: Debuting Tomorrow’s Legends
Fresh off a dazzling 2015 with breakout books Space Riders, We Can Never Go Home, and Young Terrorists, Black Mask has made a name for itself as the hottest launchpad to debut new talent and as the home for some of the coolest, most provocative comics around. Join Black Mask co-founder Matt Pizzolo (Young Terrorists, Godkiller) and creators Kwanza Osajyefo (upcoming Black), Tini Howard (upcoming The Skeptics), Matthew Rosenberg (We Can Never Go Home, 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank), Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim), Tyler Boss (4 Kids Walk Into A Bank), and more special guests for a wide-ranging discussion of how new creators and new ideas are changing comics and how YOU can be a part of it.
1:00-2:00 – Hayley Atwell Spotlight
Hayley Atwell first appeared as Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, and reprised the role in other films and for two seasons on ABC’s Marvel’s Agent Carter. This fall she can be seen in the new ABC series Conviction. Join us for this lively look at Ms. Atwell’s career!
As you can see, my panel schedule is pretty light. I might pop into some random rooms to see what’s going on. I plan on checking out the costume contest on Saturday as well. I’ll probably spend most of my time walking around the floor and filling my sketchbooks with some new art. At the moment I plan to get an Elektra and a Holtzmann added! I might get a new Hawkeye in my Hawkeye book too. We’ll have to see how the money situation is. I really don’t have a list of artists I want to check out besides Katie Cook. Normally at my local show I just wander around and until I see some art that grabs my eye. It’s a really nice way to find some new talent! Oh and on Sunday I’m meeting Hayley Atwell again! I’m getting another photo and autograph. This will be my 3rd time meeting her. I know, I have a problem but it’s Hayley! I plan on having her sign this Marvel’s Agent Carter: Season One Declassified book. I really recommend it if you’re into Art books, or just want to know more about what went on in making the show!
And that’s it! If you plan on going to the show and see me there, be sure to say hello! If you’re from Twitter, be sure to mention your handle because I’m horrible with names! I know this weekend there are a few conventions going on around the country, including Dragon*Con. Are any of you attending any? Let me know! And if you are, have a great time!
