This past weekend my friends from Peepshow TO and I put on our best cosplays and strutted our stuff at one of the biggest Nerd Conventions in North America: FAN EXPO!  Fan Expo brings together fans of Comics, Sci-Fi, Anime, Horror and Gaming for a weekend of geeky fun.  The Peepshowers had a booth in the Horror section of the con and spent most of our time advertising our next show Garters of the Galaxy: A Marvel Inspired Burlesque.  We had a blast chatting up con goers and posing for photos in cosplay.

This year I really over extended myself by attempting to do 2 brand new cosplays for the con.  On Friday the Peepshow crew did a Sparkly X-Men Group cosplay in which I portrayed the White Queen Emma Frost.  For the big day, Saturday, we did another group cosplay.  This time it was the DC Bombshells, which is a set of female DC characters as 1940s pinup girls.  For this group I did Supergirl, which was such fun to make and to wear.  On the final day I decided to wear an old favourite, my Batwoman burlesque cosplay.  Overall the highlight of the weekend was definitely getting to meet the Queen of Cosplay herself; Yaya Han!  Yaya is such an inspiration for me as a cosplayer.  Her costumes are flawless and she really embodies each character she portrays.

Please enjoy a few of my photos from this year’s Fan Expo…
