Enjoy Labor Day at DragonCon 2013

Time for a long Labor Day weekend. Long Labor Day weekends mean time for DragonCon. And DragonCon means time for Booster Gold cosplayers!

Fashion in Motion

The cosplayers you are about to see will not be new to you, but hopefully these videos of their exploits will be.

This first video is from Lumberjack Films at New York Comic Con 2012. I know Aaron Wahl and his award-winning costume have been featured here twice before, but I just thought everyone might like to hear the details and see the whole costume in action. Also, in his interview in episode 33 of the Fire and Water Podcast, Dan Jurgens said that he has never seen a Booster Gold cosplayer with a flying Skeets. Someone please get this video to Mr. Jurgens' attention.

This second video by Distractotron is an assemblage of DC cosplayers from DragonCon 2012. I know that I have shown you Shelley as Booster Gold before, but there is something to be gleaned from the sheer multitude of cosplayers assembling for this photo shoot. I know that cosplayers make up a small minority of fandom, but they really represent well. Congratulations to all involved.

Dressing Up for Dragon Con 2012

DragonCon 2012, the "world's largest fantasy/sci-fi convention," was held Labor Day weekend in Atlanta. In celebration of all the hard work that went into having so much fun at DragonCon, my fellow DC fan bloggers and I are sharing some DragonCon 2012 photos of our heroes. Of course, the photos of Booster Gold are the best.

Shelley as Booster Gold at Dragon Con 2012 (pic courtesy Firestorm Fan)

The Booster Gal above is Shelley, and the pic comes to us courtesy The Iredeemable Shag! of Shag normally has some great pictures of DragonCon, and this year was no exception. Better still, this year Shag introduced us to The Superhero Costuming Forum, which leads to some other great cosplay photos.

The fellow above has been cosplaying Booster Gold in his spiffy metallic costume for a few years. I guess by now he's earned enough cred to join the prestigious Legion of Super Heroes. Although, if they are going to swear in Matter Eater Lad, it looks like they'll take anybody.(Photo by KalelKara at The Superhero Costuming Forum.)

I'm not going to lie: some of these cosplayers can make the New 52 costumes look pretty good. The same cannot be said for the poor fellow who came dressed as Booster Gold. Sorry, buster, but there's just no way to make that costume shine. (Photo by KalelKara at The Superhero Costuming Forum.)

Pyynk as Booster Gold at Dragon Con 2012 (pic courtesy Bryan Humphrey)

UPDATE 09/14/12: Ooops! There was at least one other Booster Gold at Dragon Con that I failed to include. Pyynk brings me to task for leaving him out of the fun. My apologies, sir. Your costume, now pictured above, is far too good to be ignored. (Photo by Bryan Humphrey.)

If you like what you've seen here, check out more cosplaying photos at these other fine sites:

Aquaman at Aquaman Shrine
Atom at Power of the Atom
Doctor Fate at Tower of Fate
Doom Patrol at My Greatest Adventure 80
Firestorm at Firestorm Fan
Flash at Speed Force
Hawkman/Hawkgirl at Being Carter Hall
Martian Manhunter at The Idol-Head of Diabolu
Wonder Woman at Diana Prince is the New Wonder Woman
Vixen and Zatanna at Justice League Detroit
and many more obscure DC heroes at DC Bloodlines

Our thanks to Shag and the great cosplayers at The Superhero Costume Forum for sharing your pics.
