Anonymous asked: have you ever done a catwoman cosplay?

Of course!!! She’s my favorite DC character ^__^ I did the Arkham City version of her, and I definitely plan on making many more versions of her in the future. I’m only slightly obsessed. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.335331863231244.73411.335327899898307&type=3

Anonymous asked: Hi Bethany, there was a case of interviewers sexually harassing girls at a convention at the weekend and there was some talk of the group of men being the same ones as who harassed you. Can you confirm this? Names and photos are on the cosplayer's post at ' lady noctis blogspot co uk ' with periods instead of spaces. Thank you

I spoke with her this morning actually. She was wondering the same. Unfortunately it is in fact a DIFFERENT set of assholes ruining the convention scene via harassment. I’m pretty positive the group “Man Banter” (From New York Comic Con) has been shut down. After wonderful social detective work the man behind my incident was named Mike Babchick. http://www.themarysue.com/new-york-comic-con-harassment/ this is an article The Mary Sue wrote up about it for direct comparison. 

I express my whole hearted sadness and disappointment for Lady Noctis. No one should feel unsafe at conventions. She should be commended for doing the right thing and reporting it immediatly to security. And although in my situation security was less than helpful for throwing Man Banter out right away, from the sound of it the convention she attended handled the situation correctly and was able to black list them.

Convention goers: you have the power to shut these people down. If someone is harassing you, my best advice would be not only to go to security right away, but if you happen to have your cellphone or a camera, snap a photo of them so there is absolutely NO mistaking who the offenders are when you are reporting them. However, even if you are unable to provide a photo the convention SHOULD do everything in their power to make sure you’re protected. Spread the word, keep each other safe by sending out a warning to our friends. Conventions are a place for celebration, not for harassment.

Thanks anon for giving me a platform to correct any rumors that these might be the same people. They are not the same, but it scares me that this is a growing trend for media getting away with getting press badges purely to hurt others. NEVER ok!

Totally forgot to put my Captain Marvel #1 selfie on tumblr. I have the digital copy only as of now until I can get to a shop. But there’s obvious reasons that this is easily my favorite cover so far. TWINS!

I’ve been going to anime/comic conventions for eight years, yet I still can’t explain what the significance of conventions are to people without having to go through a 20 minute explanation.  It’s truly a life changing experience, I can tell you that for sure!!  Here’s just a small example, but when I was younger I thought I was the only person on this planet that used Deviantart, until I attended Sakura Con.  I ended up collecting over 50 business cards that had their DA links that year, and I thought that was the just coolest thing to know that I was not alone.  Countless other moments had occurred that year where I met more and more people who knew of and appreciated the same things that I did.  So I hope most of you can relate to that feeling of absolute bliss and joy of attending a con.  uvu
Why do you like conventions?  I’d love to hear your stories!!

I have a question for Deadpool fans.

Okay, Deadpool could easily have been lost among all the many characters to come out in his era…in his first couple appearances, there wasn’t anything particularly special about him. Many have noticed the similarity between Slade Wilson/Deathstroke and Wade…

Attention Boston’s Deadpool. This one is for you
