Who saw the ConnectiCon Death Match this year?!
I will always get a thrill out of seeing how kind of intimidating I look in the background of this. I know I definitely didn’t feel the same way inside but I’m kind of proud about how I look in this.
Sage advice from The Thick of It on FaceBook.
Not listening to anything else for the rest of the day. Just repeating from 4:16 to the end again and again.
OK dinguses, here’s something that’s gonna make your life and the lives of everyone who sees you at the con so much better.
This is called a Men’s Dance Belt.
It’s for male ballet dancers to wear under their tights. Its purpose?
TO MAKE SURE NOBODY SEES THEIR BULGE.
when I’m at a con, nothing kills a potential good superhero costume more than seeing the cosplayer’s friendly neighborhood spider-cock through the costume.
I made a comment on this when someone shared this on FB, but I had to add here too.
As a dude, this is extremely vital if you plan on wearing spandex. Now I think it’s slightly misleading when it says it gets rid of the bulge. It doesn’t. You will still technically have a bulge. What you won’t have is people being able to tell exact details of what you look like underneath the spandex. No one wants to know that much detail about you on first meeting. This thing basically just smooths you out but you are still going to be obviously defined as male.
I will state though, that these things are the bane of my existence. They are not comfortable. I think the longest I’ve lasted is around six hours, at which point the thong part just hurts way too much and the waistband really cuts into your sides. I’ve been left with marks from these things for a day afterwards.
I will still wear it though in costume. I swear to God, you have no excuse. Wear the damn thing. Suck up the pain. It makes your costume look that much better.

I won’t be posting any more John Byrne images for today. Just one day, tomorrow I’ll be back. This is the reason why.
John Byrne today on his website:
Just spent a few minutes on the IMDb, clicking thru images of fans in costume at San Diego. A reminder of one of the many reasons I don’t do…
Fucking hate this attitude about policing cosplayers and hate it even MORE when pros do it.
Also, I don’t know your wife, but tell her that I said she was EXACTLY the perfect size to cosplay Batgirl.
I honestly don’t know this guy, but he comes across as a fucking prick. I am one of the fat Batmen who bulge out of their costume. Even though I’ve lost 70 fucking pounds trying to look better in costume. I’m still working on it but I refuse to let assholes like him ruin it for me. Because it’s all worth it when you turn up to a con and you see people light up because you’re fucking Batman. Or like I did the other day at the comic store for the 75th and watch as a kid’s eyes light up when they see Batman before them and they are completely awestruck.
Don’t let any asshole tell you that you’re too big or too small for a costume. Do what you want because YOU love it.
