Planet Comicon – Cosplay Shangri-La Day One!!!

motor city con

Planet Comicon, Kansas City’s fabulous comic convention rocked it friday!  Cosplays and intense costumers filled the halls and brought down the house!  So much creativity in Kansas – always breath-taking!  Iron Brothers of Topeka represented in their Marvel Iron Man, revamped War Machine and the always incredible Pepper Potts rescue armor suit.  They were accompanied by the best darn Stan Lee look-a-like you’ve ever seen and a mash-up of Sailor Moon and Captain America…  SO many wonderful cosplays, but my absolute favorite was the crossplay Sponge Bob!  Laughed for about 20 seconds – she was… bubbly!  lol!

Ant Lucia was the favorite artist of the day, (along with my steady fav, Phillip Moy), Ant Lucia is the intense bombshell artist that provides us ladies with the best retro Marvel and DC bombshell favorites to emulate.  Love, love, love his stuff! Other artists/writers/colorists that stuck out today in their amazing work was Lady Death – Brian Pulido and Tommy Castillo (best guy ever and most published artist in the world)!!!!! Love Illinois hometown favorite Ash Maczko of Devil’s Due and Squarriers.  Dude, you are the man!!!   Photographers were on hand to do green screens (Image Collectors) and some free shots were done as well in other areas.  The Pirate Band Musical Blades sounds like Gaelic Storm and is just as raucous and fun as the best Irish band in Dublin!  They’re great stuff, get ya jumping the jig and raising your hands in the air with pirate flare!  FUN GUYS!!!!

The most popular celeb was Carey Elwes, his line was around the corner and down the rows SOO far!  Personally like the Lost Girl celebs, as common knowledge says that show is the most rocking show ever – so no surprise there!  Project Nerd was on the lookout for cosplayers for their latest project – mums the word on what that is – spoilers!

Great cosplays, can’t emphasize that enough!  Kansas City – you are amazing!  Props the the KC Cosplayers and the group KC Cosplay and Photography.  They were incredible forces in fridays cosplay scene! (and I”m sure this is just the beginning for the weekend!!!)  Final note of the night – SO MUCH STEAMPUNK!!  Completely taken aback by the shock and awe of the steampunk airship troops out here – phenomenal!   More pics to come, took 321 friday and over 600 saturday!  Just getting this out!  Keep watching!!!
