HeroesCon 2013: Cosplay Gallery

We weren't able to attend the show but check out the Cosplayers that did!

This weekend was HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC. From what I've heard, it was a great show. It was a show we thought about attending but it just didn't happen. Perhaps next year. Thankfully, Pat Loika, friend to Comic Vine, was there and took a bunch of pictures.

This gives you an idea of just some of the Cosplayers that were there.

If you know Pat, you know he takes a lot of great shots at different conventions. That's not all he does. You can check out his web page HERE, where you'll find links to his Twitter, Flickr and Instagram pages. You can also check out his podcast, Loikamania, where he often gets really cool guests and creators on. Check it out.

As for Pat's pics, he was nice enough to share some with us. You can find them in the HeroesCon 2013 Cosplay Gallery. Here's a taste of what you can find there:

Punisher is hot.

Punisher and 90s Catwoman are so GIGGITY. And that pic is funny with Aquaman and Palmiotti.

HeroesCon was great this year. My favorites were the Captain Marvel costumes which were also heavily featured at the "Carol Corps" panel.

I saw this great picture that Kelly Sue tweeted:

Catwoman in a wedding dress is a great reference to a neat cover from way back and a weak story to back it up

@v_scarlotte_rose: lol, yeah, I remember that being taken. Kelly Sue and Matt Fraction were the highlights of my year (as well as my commissions...which I will post later). I told Kelly Sue I was going to try and talk to my wife into letting me cosplay as Captain Marvel...she wasn't amused.

@sammo21: You should give it a go. I've seen quite a few people Cosplay as her, and the costume seems to look good on most people.

Which reminds me, I must put a costume together in case I ever get to meet Kelly Sue.

The guy playing Bane looks spot on!

Awesome to see a Roan the Accuser!

Very heroic shot of Thor!

Harley and Ivy look great!

I really like the Captain Marvels but... Why is there a guy dressed up as one? The one with Blonde hair definitely has the most accurate and well made outfit. The one with the mask proves why that mask isn't needed on Captain Marvel, still looks great though!

The Miss Thing outfit looks awesome. It's really hard to pull the Thing-look off!

I love the picture with Aquaman, so cool! My only complaint is that the guy needs to wear a cup. :)

That big crowd pic is amazing. I saw Vigilante!! The cool cowboy one.

Ms. Thing and the classic Iron Man were my favorites.

I was thinking the same thing about the female Punisher....waddayagonnado? You know, cuz a guy dressing up in cosplay for a female character is just so out there....

Mar Vell a kree male was captain marvel before carol was and I think the costume's where similar.


IMO would have worked better if one of the carol's was in the Ms Marvel outfit.

Lmfao! No wonder why people think an Aquaman movie will fail.
