 What We Learned at NYCC 2017

Monday, October 9, 2017

The closest thing to Booster Gold news coming out of New York Comic Con this past weekend was included in this report of the "Sunday Conversation" panel with Dan DiDio and Keith Giffen (among others) as reported by Joe Glass for BleedingCool.com:

A fan says he'd love to see Seven Soldiers of Victory book, another says Booster Gold, another with Secret Six. Someone says Ambush Bug (Giffen: "No.")

So Booster was a no-show at NYCC, but he's not so underrepresented at all conventions.

This is George Pooley (with his "best mate") at the MCM Manchester Comic Con in the UK back in July:

See? Blue and Gold were in the house!

Thanks to George for sharing. Keep up the good cosplaying, men.

 Dressed Up Like a Million Dollar Trooper

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

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!

 Stick a Pin in It

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

The Blot got in touch recently to alert me to these beauties, soon to be available from Fansets line of Justice League pins:

Fansets Booster Gold pins

That's "Classic" MicroJustice Booster Gold on the left, and "New 52" MicroJustice Booster Gold on the right. (Those are Fansets' names, not mine. I'm well aware that neither of those are the New 52 costume. Maybe Fansets is breaking the news that Rebirth Booster Gold has totally abandoned his terrible New 52 costume. If so, Hooray!)

Thanks for the notification, Blot. I assure you that there will be a new pin on my leather jacket come this fall.

 Ready for Television

Monday, July 3, 2017

For the Independence Day holiday this year, let's celebrate this classy redesign of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold by Julalesss on DeviantArt.com.

I think they both look like something we might see on the CW, and I'm okay with that. At least there we can be sure that Booster won't be wearing his New 52 redesign. (No, I'm never going to stop beating that dead horse.)

 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 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.
