That’s right, it was SDCC this weekend and tons of stars experienced our hobby while hiding in the crowd. Stars such as Daniel Radcliffe, Audrina Patridge, Adam Savage, Jaden Smith and Peter Jackson.(If you like Adam Savage’s Alien Spacesuit, you’ll love this video)
We mentioned Marvel last week but DC fans also have a lot of new costumes to make. Check out the new movieverse Batman costume and Wonder Woman’s ensemble. 
Speaking of Batman, you might get inspired by these “Most Insane Batman Costumes You’ve Ever Seen” from the Cape/Cowl/Create event. Zack Snyder needs to let it go…
Amid the hype we also have news sites explaining what cosplay is, and we have reporters learning what cosplay is all about. 
If fashion is your passion, you might also enjoy seeing these pics of the “Geek Couture” fashion show from SDCC.
It’s fun to be in costume but “Freaking out the mundanes” can lead to you getting in trouble. If you’re transporting prop weapons, it is best to keep them out of site. There are other costumed people who aren’t so well meaning.
"Comic-Con’s Year of the Kickass Woman" an article on female attendees and female representation at SDCC.
Confessions of a Cosplay Mom: a christian mother’s postive perspective on the hobby. (Page 3 has some tips for parents who have children interested in cosplay)
