As fandom moves onto the next big convention of the season, I hope you’ll take a few moments to look back at San Diego and the people who dressed as the Flash (and related speedsters) at Comic-Con International.

It turns out that the Flash was the inspiration for the group theme:
“A couple of us like to do female versions of preexisting male characters. One of our friends, Psykitten Pow, she had a female Flash,” says Tallest Silver, who organized the group and who dresses as Batma’am. “One night, we were all hanging out and I said how funny it would be if we had a whole Justice League with swapped sexes.”

Flash on a Segway. Again, Chuck Cook Photography. People were posting about this guy all over Twitter on Thursday and Saturday, and when a couple of influential people posted about him, they were retweeted so much I had to change my search terms to find anything else about the Flash at SDCC!

Captain Cold and the Flash (photo by me). These were the only two people who showed up to the planned Flash costume gathering and photoshoot.

I’m going to call this Green Lantern/Captain America/Flash trio the Las Vegas Showgirl superhero team (sequins and skin). Not enough feathers, though. Photograph by Jason Ozaeta.
There were at least two Cheetaras present.
