Florida Supercon is On


Florida Supercon begins today, and because it caters to fans of comic books, anime, animation, cosplay, fantasy *and* video games, it offers an even wider array of costumes you can wear. The video above from last year’s con should given you some idea.

• You can be one of any number of superheroes,
Characters from sci-fi series like Star Wars, The Matrix or Star Trek
Costumes of female characters from TV or Movies like Chun Li from Street Fighter, Wonder Woman, Judy Jetson from the animated series The Jetsons, Bellatrix from the Harry Potter series, or Arwen from Lord of the Rings.
• Or the costumes of male characters from TV or Movies like Batman, Harry Potter, Mr. Burns from The Simpsons, or a Ghostbuster.

They’ll be holding both a costume contest (involves posing) and a Cosplay competition (involves acting). But in addition they’ll also have a group Cosplay contest that they say is “unlike any other” called Cosplay Rockstar. Here’s the description from their site:

It's easy... you and your friends can enter in cosplay as a band. You can choose a pre-existing anime or animated band (such as Josie and the Pussycats, The Archies, Dethklok, Beck and Nana) or come up with your own idea for a band using your favorite anime or cartoon (imagine Naruto on lead vocals, Sasuke on bass, Gaara on guitar and Temari on drums... or Master Shake on lead vocals, Frylock on bass, Carl on guitar and Meatwad on drums... get the idea?). We'll provide the gear, you bring a CD with a song that your band can lip sync and rock out to. The contest will be based on stage performance and costumes.”

Even if you’re not prepared to dress up or compete this year, you can certainly have a great time getting ideas for the next con.
