The convention had a variety of panels including one of Stan Lee himself, the Game of Thrones cast, and the original 1960’s “Batman” television series cast. Unfortuantely, Batman aka Adam West had the flu so he was unable to attend but Catwoman (Julie Newmar) and Robin (Burt Ward) were there. Ms. Newmar was a bit eccentric, wearing cat-ears and calling herself a “cat, but it was really entertaining. As a fan of the series, I was very excited to see them. The panel primarily promoted the release of the entire Batman series on DVD, it’s available now!
It was my first convention and I was a bit intimated after the panel and was not sure what else to do. I spent most of it wandering around, checking out the swag and admiring the crazy awesome cosplaying. Then I realized mostly everyone was doing the same thing, so I guess I did it right!
I was lucky enought to inteview some cosplayers and this is what they had to say:
Also, if you follow me on twitter (@hollyweirdo) you would’ve seen some tweets of my favorite cosplayers, aside from the ones I spoke to. But here are some of my other favorites:
Oggie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze
The Guardians of the Galaxy (minus Rocket)
Overall, it was a great experience. I definitely plan on dressing up next time for Comikaze 2015!
