Find the Flash: Dragon*Con

As Kelson Vibber has observed, there were scads of scarlet speedsters to be found at this year's Dragon*Con in Atlanta. Among the most impressive of the participating cosplayers was this collective of the complete Rogues Gallery! The accuracy of these vibrant costumes is amazing. Just look at Heat Wave's gas mask or the patches on Piper's cloak! The Rogues posed for numerous photos, including a rather grim recreation of the death of Bart Allen! But don't take my word for it. Visit Speed Force to see a collection of Flash related images from the convention or Dragon*Con's site for a mammoth listing of fan-submitted photo galleries.

Where's Golden Glider?

Rob, I know someone who says she's planning to cosplay as Glider someday. Dunno if she ever will.

The guy in the Trickster I costume also has a Top costume; you can see him in it on Webshots.

I was there while they were doing that Rogue photoshoot. It was really awesome! Here are two pictures I took that I really like (not necessarily my photography skills, but the posing for the pictures).

It's good to see Bart triumphant in the second snapshot. That restaging of his death in the first just seems so grim to me! I suppose it just goes to show that his death at the hands of the Rogues just didn't sit right with me. All that aside, these costumes truly are impressive. Thanks for sharing your photos, Shag!
