Check out this awesome photoshoot of two Flash cosplayers at New York Comic Con! Jane Garrick is Ino-Elric, Wally West is Dymatex Zofur, and the photos were taken by Knightmare 6. There are 18 photos in the full set, some serious, some silly.
Both cosplayers made an impression as I was looking through Instagram and Flickr photos tagged for NYCC, and the fact that they actually met up for a shoot together is fantastic.

I keep meaning to plug this on the blog: We’ve got a Speed Force photo pool on Flickr. Unlike Instagram, where we’re posting our own con photos, on Flickr we’re providing a space to highlight everyone’s *ahem* Flash photography. Photographers can contribute their pictures of Flash, Rogues and other speedster cosplayers, collectibles, and sightings.
It’s fun to see the variations people come up with, from costume designs and poses to photo composition. (I like to think I’m a passable photographer, but looking at some of these shots reminds me that my convention photos tend to be a lot more snapshot than art.) Update: Check out this awesome photo shoot from NYCC featuring the female Jay Garrick in this gallery and a Wally West cosplayer.
Check it out, and if you’re on Flickr yourself, feel free to join the group!

I’m back from Comic-Con! (Yeah, I know it’s still going on.) I’ve got about 80 photos up on Flickr covering everything from cosplay to protest signs to action figures and statues to booth displays to giant inflatable Teen Titans to — I kid you not — a blimp done up as a Despicable Me minion.
Here’s a selection of Flash-related photos to get you started.
My wife spotted these three on Friday afternoon — three Flashes on casual Friday! Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve been able to get to HeroesCon for Day One…and will return for Day Three on Sunday. Here are some of the Flash fans…and some bonus pics as well. There is one pic of Marcio Takara, who filled in for a couple of issue of The Flash. Later, I got him to sign a variant cover of one of his Flash issues. And yes, that is yours truly posing with the great Neal Adams!
I enjoyed taking pics not only of the cosplayers…but anyone wearing a Flash t-shirt. btw…the Barry Allen cosplayer was amazing! Here are the pics:

Today’s guest post is by Glenmarc Antonio. Read part one first.
Reinvigorated as if I was able to tap into the Speed Force, I went back to living normally. I also went back into my happier self, though slowly. As part of my personal recovery, I tried a lot of things, and was fortunate to have been successful once more.
In early 2011, a crazy idea occurred to me. I wanted a Flash suit. With the rise of cosplaying in local hobby events in the Philippines, I began to strongly consider suiting up in one of the local cons as the Scarlet Speedster. A very good friend and established local cosplayer, Paolo Cordero, helped me craft my very first Flash costume. I said I was only to wear it if he joined me as Green Lantern. He gamely agreed, and thus JUSTICE Ph (the Philippines’ DC cosplayers group) was born.
