Pics from HeroesCon 2015!

Category: Fandom — By

There were some great times and great cosplayers at HeroesCon 2015. Below are some great Flash cosplayers who turned up at HeroesCon…and more!

You’ll find me with Robert Venditti, Francis Manapul…and none other than Greg Elias of our site! It was great to finally meet Greg in person and to talk comics for a while at HeroesCon. For those of you following the site, the staff of Speedforce.org are spread literally across the continent, so actually meeting in person is a rare and much-appreciated treat. Thanks to everyone who attended HeroesCon – and if you missed it this year, it is well worth the visit to Charlotte, North Carolina, USA next year!

Free Fall In Scarlet or You Will Believe A Flash Can Fall! (Skydiving 04/27/2015)

“Free Fall In Scarlet” or “You Will Believe A Flash Can Fall!”

Hey Speed Readers/Viewers

So a few weeks back I celebrated my 30th birthday and to mark the special occasion I decided to try my hand at skydiving. Of course being Flash Johnson I couldn’t simply jump out of a plane…I had to do it in style! So to that end I decided to rock my brand new, CW Flash suit 2.0, with my favorite
Flashy footwear, my Adidas Wings 2.0. I figured they were more than appropriate for what I was doing and I didn’t want to ruin my slick new Flash boots.

Why skydiving? Well, after reading the William Messner-Loebs penned The Flash v2 #54, “Nobody Dies” (aka “Free Fall in Scarlet!”) many, many years ago I got it in my head that I needed to jump out of a plane in a frackin’ Flash suit.

WonderCon 2015 Round-Up

Category: Fandom, Round-Ups — By

Big Hero 6As of last weekend, I’ve been to more WonderCons in Anaheim than San Francisco, and more with a kid in tow than without. And I’m finally at the point where I’m no longer comparing the current incarnation of the con to the previous one, and just taking it on its own terms.

Here at Speed Force, we covered Flash cosplay and the Flash TV show cast Q&A earlier in the week. My full photo gallery is on Flickr. It took a whole week, but I finally put together my write-up of the con over at K-Squared Ramblings.

Enjoy!

Flash Photography: Speedster Cosplay at WonderCon 2015

Category: Fandom — By

I spent the weekend at WonderCon, and while I didn’t make it to the Flash TV cast signing (they capped the line 20 minutes before I made it to the convention center), I did make it to the cast and crew Q&A session on Sunday, which I’ll be posting about soon. I also spotted quite a few Flashes, Kid Flashes and Quicksilvers among the cosplayers. (and a Thundra, who I kept trying to figure out whenever she walked by until I finally just walked up and asked her what her costume was).

The full photo gallery is up on Flickr, but here’s a highlight of some of the speedsters who slowed down long enough to be caught on camera: Read the rest of this entry »
