While the West Coast was busy with Comic Con in San Diego, I was busy taking my minions to ConnectiCon.

I’m never sure how quite to describe this con but, basically, it’s not so much a con that you attend to meet creators, though some of that happens. Instead, it’s primarily of social event where people go to hang out with others while attending cool panels, the Nerd Prom, and the Cosplay Death Match. Last year, Bill Nye won. This year, it was an awesome, on-stilts Jack Skellington.

But you can see the range of fandoms in these cosplay photos. Not gotten but wish I had: the Deadpool family (Dad, Mom, toddler son), the Wayne Parents (Thomas & Martha Wayne dressed up formally looking for Batman cosplayers to collapse in front of…), Batwoman and Maggie Sawyer, and too many video game/anime characters to count.

Here are some of the sights of ConnectiCon, from cosplayers to some of my favorite swag. Photos all by me (Corrina Lawson).
