On Fandom and Cosplay

The past few years cosplay has become a big part of our family. We’re heading into our 4th Emerald City Comicon and this year it’s bigger than ever. Even my 70 year old father-in-law has decided to join us in costume! He totally came up with the idea himself and has been excitedly working on his cosplay. We were joking the other day that he could end up being the oldest cosplayer at ECCC!

So, amongst the feverish costume building that I’ve been wrapped up in, my awesome wife took the time to write a really great article that compares the fandoms of the sports and geek worlds. Here’s a link to her article ‘Fandom’ in which I think she did a fantastic job writing. I hope you enjoy it.

She also took the above photo, which I like because it focuses on the fan taking a picture of a cosplayer (who just happens to be our daughter!)

Did I ever mention I’ve been building a TARDIS in my basement?

Yeah, so this has been a very long project and It’s not fully finished (more lighting, console doodads and wall covering to do) but I’m so happy with the progress I couldn’t help but share a quick teaser. It’s going to serve as the interior set for a parody webseries my geeklings have dreamed up! Yeah, we’re a little Doctor Who crazy in this household.

(More info and pics to come soon, I promise.)
