WonderCon 2015

Holy WonderCon, everyone! This was our third year attending this amazing convention and, man, did we have a blast. This was definitely our busiest and most exhausting convention to date (which was why our wrap-up is a few days late), but we could not be happier about it — even though our feet are still sore and Emily is having a hard time lifting things after carrying around an axe and a severed head all day.

Emily as Red Sonja

Speaking of an axe and a severed head, this year we saw an overwhelming amount of attention and love for Emily’s Red Sonja cosplay. Emily first debuted the cosplay at last year’s WonderCon and wore it again at this year’s Comikaze, before deciding to craft a new armor and a new weapon for WonderCon. Being able to cosplay Red Sonja has meant a lot to Emily, and it was extremely flattering and exciting for so many people to be into the improvements. We want to give a sincere thank you shout out to everyone who took pictures of the cosplay and who asked about its construction and story!

Punk Rock Canary and Arrow

We also debuted a new set of Black Canary and Green Arrow cosplays. It was a bit of a homecoming since we cosplayed Arrow and Canary at our first WonderCon. Emily based her Canary on the upcoming Black Canary comic by Brendan Fletcher and Annie Wu — based on a single piece of promo art, no less! She must have done a good job, since the cosplay got the stamp of approval from Fletcher himself!

And Peter joined in on the punk rock fun, as well! And thanks to Omar Freman of Blue Adept Photography for shooting our costumes (and Red Sonja on Saturday). You can see his work and more on Emily’s Facebook page in the coming days. Now, with out further ado, here are some highlights from the convention – including some awesome cosplayers!
