Rule 63: Captain Cold
The Rogues don’t get much love in cosplay which is a damn shame! I made a 'Party Captain Cold' costume for MegaCon 2012, I decided that I needed to do the character some real justice by creating a proper rule 63 costume. I had a blast frolicking in the snow for photos and making lazer sounds for my freeze gun.

Check out this awesome photoshoot of two Flash cosplayers at New York Comic Con! Jane Garrick is Ino-Elric, Wally West is Dymatex Zofur, and the photos were taken by Knightmare 6. There are 18 photos in the full set, some serious, some silly.
Both cosplayers made an impression as I was looking through Instagram and Flickr photos tagged for NYCC, and the fact that they actually met up for a shoot together is fantastic.

Date of Shoot: October 11th, 2013 Location: Jacob Javits Center (New York, NY)
Awesome Flash vs. Flash cosplay photoshoot from NYCC!
I keep meaning to plug this on the blog: We’ve got a Speed Force photo pool on Flickr. Unlike Instagram, where we’re posting our own con photos, on Flickr we’re providing a space to highlight everyone’s *ahem* Flash photography. Photographers can contribute their pictures of Flash, Rogues and other speedster cosplayers, collectibles, and sightings.
It’s fun to see the variations people come up with, from costume designs and poses to photo composition. (I like to think I’m a passable photographer, but looking at some of these shots reminds me that my convention photos tend to be a lot more snapshot than art.)
Check it out, and if you’re on Flickr yourself, feel free to join the group!
