A new comic’s up at ComicsAlliance today! I had to take an extra week break, but you’ll get a make-up comic next Monday! Two weeks in a row! Not too shabby.
This week I discuss comics merchandise, and why the heck it’s so hard to get women’s sizes in Batman shirts. Read on!

ComicsAlliance Presents ‘Kate Or Die’ in ‘Pros & Cons’
By Kate Leth
Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents “Kate or Die,” a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our favorite webcomics cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this episode, Kate reviews some helpful tips for enhancing the happiness of your favorite creators at comic book conventions.

READ MORE

A new week, a new strip! Some more tips:
- If you’re getting things signed, take them out of the bags first. Be ready.
- Don’t corner anybody in a washroom. That’s a sacred space.
- Want to make friends with a creator? The offer of a coffee or bottle of water, at the right moment, can go a long way. We forget to eat and drink. We are giant babies.

Not quite fashion-related, but here are some tips to keep in mind if you’re planning to meet some of your favorite creators at conventions this year :)

Some Cosplay/Convention Advice

bobbarker31:

1. You do this for fun. When it stops being fun, find out what changed and go back to it.
2. Be gracious. Everything you say and do is being watched… And a lot of times, emulated.
3. You cannot control who takes pictures of you, but if you make friends with photographers, they will most likely accommodate what you want and do not want.
4. Don’t ruin your health. Stay hydrated. Don’t starve yourself. A lot of costumers suffer for their art, but it does no good passing out.
5. If you are sick stay home. No one wants to costume with Patient Zero. There will be other times.
6. Get a handler. They can hold items, protect you, watch your costume and how others are around you. Return the favor for them when there is an opportunity.
7. Be aware of your environment. Don’t wear an inappropriate costume to the wrong place.
8. When the con starts, it is pencils down. No more working on costumes until after the con. You are there to socialize.
9. You have no idea of the power of a kind word. Give them freely.
10. You have no idea of the implications of a harsh word. Hold them back and only mention them in private trusted company.
11. If you wish you were costuming every day of your life, consider a career in costume design/acting/modeling. Otherwise, remember there is life outside of costuming.
12. Don’t change who you are. You will want to fit in with some people. You’ll find people that will appreciate you for who you are and you them. Be patient.

Some wise words for cosplayers and attendees to keep in mind during the convention season.

That awkward moment

when cosplayers accuse other cosplayers of being “fake.”

I could’ve sworn we were all just pretending to be superheroes, but I guess I was mistaken.
