~~ IT’S THE BIG COSPLAY SPECIAL EXTRAVAGANZA!! ~~
One element which is considered by the general media as the most frivolous aspect of attending comic-cons is cosplaying. ‘Nerds dressing up as Trekkies’, they think – even The Big Bang Theory is guilty of misunderstanding this colourful, creative and, more recently, highly lucrative obsession of a very dedicated section of a comic con audience.
We are going to be joined by some of the new celebrities of the cosplay community – , and others to talk about the good, the bad and the beautiful of cosplaying. As someone who hasn’t cosplayed before, I’m looking forward to finding out even more about this fascinating subject…
We’ll also be announcing the winners of last weeks Promo Codes competition, live on air – entries will be accepted up to fifteen minutes before we go live. Best of luck!
UPDATE: 8th February 2015 Congratulations to @jerled, @AngelaCopley and @716689 on winning the three Dark Bunny Tees Promo Codes – well done!
A CUP O’ TEA WITH AN ENGLISHMAN IN SAN DIEGO is the weekly San Diego Comic-Con Live Show, a Hangout On Air taking place every Sunday (6pm GMT / 10am PST / 1pm EDT) and hosted by Leonard Sultana.
Each week, the best bloggers on t’web talk about San Diego Comic-Con International, about con & pop culture and, for an hour or so, we invite guests to talk to us and get nerdy and geeky about everything that orbits the Best Pop Culture Convention On The Planet!
YOU can watch and interact online, either by Twitter (tweeting with the hashtag ) or via the Hangout Event Q&A. Schedules permitting, Leonard will be joined by guests from the SDCC blogging community and some surprises!
