 Finger Guns for Guys and Girls

Monday, June 26, 2017

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, 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

Monday, May 1, 2017

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

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

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!

 Convention Season Is Here

Monday, April 17, 2017

Last November, we met Smallville-era Booster Gold cosplayer Michael Boruff. Boruff has finally taken his cosplay to a convention, specifically the 2017 Gem City Comic Con in Dayton, Ohio earlier this month.

I love to see smiling Booster Gold cosplayers (and their fans!). Thanks, Michael.

 Clothes Make the Man

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Not too long ago, I shared a bunch of images of a Smallville-style Booster Gold jacket and pointed out that they were all badly altered versions of the same cosplayer.

I finally found a picture of another Eric Martsolf jacket. This one belongs to cosplayer Michael Boruff.

Boruff doesn't just have a jacket; he has a Skeets! Boruff indicates on his DeviantArt page that he's put a speaker inside Skeets so that it will talk. Now that's Boosterrific!

Great job, Michael.
