Some of you may remember my little post about the german Comic con in Dortmund last year.
Well, this year I went to it too…..and I wanna write something about it and have prepared a little video.
This one was actually my second Comic con. And compared with last year…..hmh, I would say I was/am a little disappointed.
Ok, doing something for the first time is always a little more exciting I guess, but the main reason for my disappointment is clearly the lack of …..(well-) masked women.
Because to be honest, that is my main motivation as it wasn’t very cheap to travel to Dortmund and buy a ticket for the con.
What was really good this year were the Hollywood guests (check the video) and that it wasn’t too crowded with now 3 instead of last years 2 halls for the Comic Con.
And of course…seeing so many folks dressed up in often great costumes is always very interesting and/or sexy (in case of some really sexy dressed women).
But back to my main motivation:
There was NOT ONE masked woman with a really good costume (from what I saw).
There were two Spider-Gwens/Girls with good costumes, but without masks (DAMN! The mask is an/the essential part!). There were two Catwomen with really cheap costumes, not sexy at all.
And I didn’t find a single Batgirl, Batwoman, Spoiler or Canary! In general there were way too less DC characters around. And with the upcoming Batwoman appearance on the Crossover in a few days I thought there would be one or two at least…. Weird. Well, I only visited the Comic Con on sunday and not on saturday and sunday. Perhaps there were more masked women on saturday…don’t know.
So many costumes from Star Wars, Games of Thrones, Walking Dead, japanese Mangas, Horror movies. I guess I need to visit some sort of DC/Marvel-only Comic con, but I guess that doesn’t exist. 😆
Ok, I do know that a Batgirl/Catwoman costume that I find really attractive is pretty expensive. And that it is much easier to dress up like Harley Quinn for example. And ok, making a really good cosplay of Batgirl or Catwoman for example is tougher as most others. But there wasn’t a single rubber cowl on all these women…
Perhaps I will check out the “Heroes and Villains” fanfest in London or when it comes to Germany one day.
Next year the german comic con will be two times in Dortmund. Hmh, I have to think about it. But I guess I will attend at least one of them.
Not so many other chances to find a Batgirl or Catwoman in real life 😆
And here is my little video:
