CROSSOVER! Everybody loves a crossover! Twelve different blogs have combined forces today to feature some of the amazing cosplayers at DragonCon 2012! Each blog in this crossover will focus on their own favorite heroes and corresponding cosplayers. If you’re not familiar with DragonCon, it’s the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe! It’s held each year over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta. It is also known as the premier convention for cosplayers.
Today here at FIRESTORM FAN we’re going to feature… well… Firestorm. Sadly there was only one Firestorm-related cosplayer this year, but what a great costume it was!!! Box Hero Firestorm! All of the photos I’m displaying today were taken during cosplay photoshoots organized by the Superhero Costuming Forum. The planning and coordination of these massive photoshoots is an astonishing task! My hats off to these folks for doing such a great job!
Below is a close-up of the head piece so you can study the amazing flames!
The Firestorm Box Hero was cosplayed by Allen Hansard (see below). Allen was the very first Firestorm cosplayer we featured here at FIRESTORM FAN. Additionally, Allen is the Grand Poobah over at the Superhero Costuming Forum.
