German Comic Con Dortmund 2017 [My 1st!]

*EDIT* Added another video…

 

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 (nearly all masked women are in the video) :

And here comes MY self-filmed 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)

*EDIT* You can see that Batgirl and more great cosplays in this official video at around 0:40:

 

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.

Wanna know what I think about that scene and discuss it? Here you go:

Behind the mask

 

New masked women in Supergirl and Flash!

More masked women on the horizon!

In Supergirl we will get a villainess called Reign, and in a Supergirl/Flash/Arrow crossover we will get an evil version of Supergirl called Overgirl.

Check out the pictures:

Starting today I will always include a link, where we can discuss the new post on Behind the mask!

Catwoman in Gotham …. a NEW page

[1 of 2 post for today]

For starters I created a new page for this blog. You can see it above in the menu.

Check it out more info and 2 new videos!

Catwoman in Gotham is a page dedicated to running TV show Gotham where we can witness the transformation from Selina Kyle in Catwoman. Every scene with Catwoman will be found there!

 

 

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?

And here is the video:

A great scene, with a nice struggle!

And I like the outcome, pretty unusual 😉

If you wanna know from which episode this comes from:

Supergirl unmasked and in peril!

Supergirl unmasked? But she doesn’t have a mask!

Well, that’s right in one way. Like Superman/Clark Kent, Supergirl is “masked” when she is in her civilian identity Kara. She then wears glasses (like Clark) and wears a pony tail.

Yeah, a pretty stupid “disguise”, but at least a better one in comparison with Superman.

The scene I edited for you guys is indeed fitting to this blog without a mask.

Kara enters an elevator and rips open her blouse, revealing her Supergirl outfit underneath. And that before the doors have closed!

How clumsy of her, that could have given her secret away!

In the elevator she gets a panic attack while her blouse is still “open”. She is in great danger of being exposed… everyone who would enter the elevator could find out that Kara is Supergirl!

And here is the video:

I was really thrilled of that scene! She could have been easily exposed….

Pretty weird that the holes in the elevator and the rooftop weren’t mentioned later in the episode…

Wanted! Black Scorpion, Queen of Swords, Birds of Prey ……in HD quality!

(2nd post for today)

A little repost I did on Behind the mask:

 

In my opinion these three are the most important TV-shows when it comes to women in masks. All from my “Hall of Fame” on this blog.
The problem is, none of these seems to be available in HD.
In germany, only Birds of Prey is available on DVD! Black Scorpion (the TV show) and I think Queen of swords too were never even shown on TV here…
I bought Black Scorpion from amazon.com and Queen of Swords from amazon.fr. And you can find…other sources to these shows more or less easy, but all at best in DVD quality.
Many many “old” movies and TV shows are available on HD now. They were shown on HD TV, so folks were able to Record/rip it, or Blu-Rays were released.
Does anyone know a source where to get any of these shows in HD quality (720p or better)?
From time to time I check the different amazon sites and other ….sources, but nothing so far.
I would love to see them in a picture quality these shows deserve!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just comment this post…
If you have a link that could be “difficult” to post here, just write me a message

Imagine these covers….

….with women under the masks! Aren’t that great covers?

Here are the covers I’m talking about:

(click to enlarge to full size)

Imagine Spider-gwen handcuffed, with a police man reaching for her mask! Ready to pull it off and revealing her secret 🙂

Imagine Spider-gwen hold from behind by a bad guy, and he is viciously ripping up her mask! Toring away more and more of her precious mask 🙂

That would be something!

What really annoys me is the fact that these scenes don’t appear in these comics!!! That are just cool cover-artworks that have nearly nothing to do with the actual content! I mean WTF!

Well, ok, Spider-man is in the comics, but that’s pretty much it….

 

 

 

Masks Off! #36 – Black Scorpion unmasked! [Comic]

Many of you folks know the Black Scorpion TV-series. But I bet that only a few know the Black Scorpion comics.

Well there are only 5 to my knowledge, but of course there is an unmasking in it 😉

Check it out:

Solid unmasking! Always good if the unmasker already know the person that he unmasked. 🙂

 

Wonder woman unmasked and chloroformed!

Wonder woman wears a mask? Yes, in this video she wears a mask! In fact there a two wonder womEn with masks.

But of course only one is the real one.

An imposter in wonder woman outfit and masks tries to attract the real one. The real one shows up in a mask too (only gods knows why…).
