Welcome to Convention Season 2020

Nothing about 2020 is normal, and that includes the annual Comic-Con International convention being held this weekend. The in-person event was canceled for public health reasons, but it is now being held in "the comfort of your own home" courtesy of the magic of the Internet. (I hope you have a big couch.)

In honor of the convention's Masquerade cosplay contest, being held virtually tonight on comicconathome.tumblr.com, I present Kevin Bo...oster Gold, aka BoosterGoldNY, who was recently spotlighted in a Q&A at CriticalBlast.com.

BoosterGoldNY as Booster Gold

I recommend that you check out his Instagram, where you'll see him posing with Dan Jurgens among many other great pictures. I think they're pretty Boosterrific.

Dressed Up Like a Million Dollar Trooper

My good friend Michael Foster (a Hal Jordan fanatic) goes to DragonCon every year accompanied by his 2 gallon flask. (Michael is serious about his partying.) This year he was happy return with these pics of Booster Gold cosplayers.

Note that like Michael and his flask, these cosplayers also came in pairs.

Great cosplaying, everyone. Thanks for the pics, Mike. Here's to Dragon Con 2018!

Finger Guns for Guys and Girls

HeroesCon 2017 was two weeks ago in Charlotte, North Carolina. Booster Gold has traditionally been well represented by cosplayers there, and this year was no exception.

Shag of the Fire and Water Podcast Network spotted these two at Heroes Con this year and posted this pic to Twitter. Jay Tallsquall also played Booster at last year's con, but his Justice League International teammate Gypsy is a welcome addition to the party.

Elsewhere, Jeffrey Lyles of LylesMovieFiles.com, uploaded his photos from April's Awesome Con in Washington, D.C. where he spotted this female Booster Gold cosplayer.

It's so heartwarming to see Booster still getting the love at conventions despite the character's continued absence from the limelight. You cosplayers are definitely Boosterrific.

Cosplaying with Dan Jurgens

Dan Jurgens was at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (aka C2E2) earlier this month, and he shared with the world a couple of pictures of the Booster Gold cosplayers he met on Twitter (as @thedanjurgens).

First up is this fine fellow in an unusual, Iron Man-inspired Booster Gold costume. (It reminds me of Booster's ungainly mid-90s suits of armor, but it's still way better than the New 52 costume.) Note his Skeets in Jurens' hands.

Taking a low-tech approach to Booster Gold cosplaying is this young woman. Look closely at what she is wearing on her head:

That's a knit Skeets hat! Hot damn! Said Jurgens:

Skeets: full service security and information droid as well as a nifty, warm, knit hat for cold Chicago nights.

We don't have many cold nights here in Atlanta, Georgia, but I'd still give my left arm for a Skeets knit hat!

Twenty-seventeen has been a great year for Booster Gold cosplayers so far. Keep up the good work, Booster boosters.

In Brightest Day, In Darkest Knight

Michael Boruff isn't the only Booster Gold cosplayer out this season. Check out this pose from New England's Super Megafest Comic Con two weeks ago:

That's BattleStardoe as Booster Gold and Everyone's Hero as The Darker Knight. (Photo is from Everyone's Hero post on Cosplay Amino.) What a good looking pair!
