German Comic Con Dortmund 2017 [My 1st!]

As promised, I wanna share my impressions from my first comic con in Dortmund yesterday.

As I understand it we didn’t have comic cons in germany before 2015. And now we have the “german comic con” in 4 different cities throughout the year.

In addition there is the “comic con germany” that is just once a year.

As I heard it was very crowded on saturday. Last year they used 4 big halls, and the folks had enough space. This year they put the con in just 2 big halls…

Well, I was there on sunday. It was crowded, but not on a really annoying scale.

I was hoping to see some Catwomen, Batgirls and other masked, female heroines and villainesses.

There were lots of lots of women/girls that did cosplays from japanese mangas… and lots of Harley Quinn’s. And there were a lot of female cosplayers that “did” Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

But regarding masked women from DC or Marvel… well I saw/noticed one Black Cat, two Batgirls, three Catwomen, one Spider-girl (unmasked) and some masked assassin from the Court of owls. I hoped for more… and no Batwoman, no Canary, no masked Spier-girl/Gwen, no Spoiler.  Of course I was only there on one day and of course you can’t see every cosplayer.

I definitely need to improve on my handling of my photo camera and the “photographer” skills. But I will learn from that experience.

From the material I have I edited around 10 really short clips into one short video.

But let’s start with some pictures ( :

And here comes the video:

In the video you should find 3 Catwomen and one Batgirl (my favorite cosplay that day).

And if you look closely, you will find a second batgirl, without cowl (not facing the camera)

Well, actually these were my first Batgirl/Catwomen that I saw in “real” life. And that was a pretty great experience. I will try to attend more comic cons in the future. And I’m pretty sure that then I can present better picture/video material. It would be great if there was a con just for DC and Marvel.

But -after all- it was a promising start…

Thanks to all the cosplayers! Great Job!

Feel free to comment!

Did you visited comic cons in the past? What are your experiences?

 

German comic con Dortmund and other news

[2nd post today]

Some news to report:

I will be attending the german comic con in Dortmund next week (december 10th). I am really looking forward to it! Never been to one, and comic cons in germany are still a pretty “new” thing. I hope to see some well-made cosplays. Especially from masked heroines like Batgirl, Batwoman, Catwoman, Spider-girl, Spider-gwen and so on. I will take my little amateur camera with me and take some pictures and videos.

I guess you all will love to hear that I will disable all Infolink ADs in this month. Even with the solid, stable visitor count the revenue is getting too low lately. And the site will look better without the ADs.

And now to the Amazon-links/banners. I know how many visitors visit my two blogs and I know that around 50% are from the USA, Great Britain and Germany.

But nearly no one uses the amazon-links on this site! Wanna know how much the US and german amazon links made last month?

0,0 / Nothing / Nada / überhaupt gar nichts

(UK links around 1-2 Pounds)

Well, that is really…. annoying. I know that many people shop at amazon. So, if you like this blog and visit it every once in a while…why don’t use these links if you wanna shop at amazon in the USA, UK or germany? If you use the link from the banner as a bookmark, you would only need to invest some seconds once and help me out at the same time.

Batgirl cosplay – Helena Bertinelli style

The Helena Bertinelli “Batgirl style” was always my favorite Batgirl design. Well she was only a short time under that cowl, but I really like the all black design. She even modified the regular batgirl mask to the full face mask that Cassandra wore afterwards.

It’s very rare to find cosplays on that batgirl type, so it’s time to post one here:

(Preview)

 

And here is the video:

Wow….short video, but what a costume!

Love the black hair, boots and gloves. Very rare!

And, there are cosplay pictures as well:

Well, all these great pictures and the batgirl in  the video are from Kamiko-Zero.

17 great comic COVERS! [Batgirl, Catwoman, Spoiler, Spider-girl]

Over the years I read a lot of comics. Of course mainly these with masked heroines in it 😉

I posted some of these covers together with pages from the story. Now it’s time to show some of my favorite cover artworks with masked heroine in some sort of peril.

What about you?

What are your favorite covers?

Killed by her own mask!

This scene is pretty unique! We have an evil penguin mascot that fights Jean-Claude van Damme. So, why does that scene fits on this blog?

The easy answer…there a woman inside that costume!

It’s a pretty harsh scene but the end….well, it’s pretty amazing.

Masked female burglar VS Diana Prince/Wonder Woman

Time for a new video, folks! I edited a nice clip, where Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman returns home. But as she enters her apartment, she’s not alone anymore!

A masked female burglar has ransacked the place… can Diana Prince manage the situation?

Can she catch the burglar? Can she unmask her?
