Technically, our actresses aren't "cosplayers", since they are the actual person who also plays the character in the video series. But many people at Comicons think they are cosplayers, until we explain to them that they are actresses from an original production. So, this is definitely the best sub-forum to post our Comicon costume photos.

Without further ado, here are various photos from the past year or so of our actresses representing Heroineburgh at regional Comicons. Hope you enjoy them, and if you're anywhere near Pittsburgh, come and visit our booth at Steel City Con, Dec 9-11 in Monroeville, PA! (yes, the home of Monroeville Mall, location for 'Day of the Dead')

Devana (Casey) the Slavic Huntress at Akron Comicon. She is a great new addition to our heroine lineup for Season 3.

 

Various photos of Bridget at Baltimore Comicon.
For the first two days, she played her regular superheroine character, Arctica mistress of the frost.
Then on the last day, she gave everyone a sneak peek of her altered form coming up in EP22 - Quanta, queen of quantum physics.

    

Jessica Z played her character Chlorina the Toxic Titaness at the grand opening of K&J Comics, a new comic shop in West View PA.

 

Jasmine is the new actress playing Savanna for Season 3. She made her second Con appearance in Morgantown WV, at WV Pop Con.

 

Steel City Con in August 2022 brought many heroines and villainesses out of the Heroineburgh roster, including
Arctica (Bridget); Savanna (Jasmine) and Darbouka (Tiffany); Mesmera (Stacy); and Vendetta (Mauricia).

    

Arctica (Bridget) and Pagliaccia (Gabriel) the Clown Princess of Fear traveled with us all the way up to Connecticut for Terrificon in July.
Here, you can see Arctica with a She-Go cosplayer, and Pagliaccia with Phil Lamarr. Then they battled in front of some legendary George Perez art.

   

Hellfyra (Sasaya) came with the Heroineburgh crew to both Gem City Comicon in Dayton, and Fanboy Expo in Columbus,
where she "spared no expense" to pose with a John Hammond cosplayer.

 

Three Rivers Comicon in June featured two days of amazing Heroineburgh characters, including
Stellara (Ruby), Darbouka (Tiffany), Lunessa (Indigo) and Serpenta (Jessica B. ). And here's an extra solo Serpenta photo.

  

Finally, here's a great one from last year's Big Apple Con in December 2021. Our actress Nupur, who plays Arogya the Healer, moved to Brooklyn, but she was able to do one last appearance for us in NYC. (We're still currently looking for a new Arogya)

Now bringing you a report from our hometown Steel City Comicon which just concluded its December edition - held in Monroeville PA
right across the street from the mall where George Romero filmed Day of the Dead.

On Day 2 of the Con, Arctica and Chlorina came out to play!

 

 



Then on Day 3, we featured appearances from Savanna, Cybrina, and Devana.
All three of them served as judges in the three cosplay contest categories (kids, teens, adults). 

  

 



Whether in the main hall, or back at our booth signing comics and autographing 8 x 10's, they brought the beautiful and powerful heroine energy.

 

 

We got some excellent solo shots, as well.

Hello everyone! Topping this thread because we're smack dab in the middle of Fall Comicon season and there's still a lot going on with appearances by Heroineburgh costumed actresses at regional conventions.

Sad to say you already missed the first three Comicons we did in the fall, but I'm happy to report that they were all very fun.

On Sept 9 in Salem, OH, hundreds of fans flocked to meet Dean Cain, and Heroineburgh (along with a couple other dozen vendors)
greeted them inside a converted high school. SalemCon was graced by our own alluring but deadly mistress of toxins, Chlorina.
Portrayed by the awesome Jessica Z (also the lead singer of popular Pittsburgh band God Hates Unicorns), she brought generous spandex-clad style and we sold lots of books, especially in the first three hours of the Con before everyone was focused on Dean.

 

Then two weekends later we took on a much larger Con in Ohio: the Cincinnati Comic Expo. It was quite extensive, with well over 60 creators selling their original comics, and of course tons of dealers, pop culture booths, and some nice celebrities like John DeLancie and one of the Harry Potter kids (and many comic legends like Bob Hall and Jim Lee). We had the pleasure of being booth neighbors with Ted Sikora (Hero Tomorrow Comics) and we also met our friend Jeff Hicks of the Youtube channel World Class Bullshitters.
Sharing the booth with us was our fellow Comicsburgh member DP Brown, selling his sci-fi comic Theme of Thieves,
and our heroine was the very lovely and capable Hellfyra, played by Sasaya. We'll definitely be coming back to Cincy, it was a blast, even
if a lot of people very vocally hate the Steelers! :)

 

Finally, last weekend we were again at a smaller Con, this one in DuBois PA - the Dubois SuperCon. Gaining a foothold and a fanbase in a smaller town is usually a fun experience, and this was no exception. In addition to the very gracious Con director who made sure we had pizza, cookies, water bottles and all the snacks we could consume, we also visited a candy and toy store in the mall called McNulty's which was also a full service comic shop. Coming with us for the rider was our new actress Sammie, who will be playing the role of Irish superheroine Fianna in Season 3. She had her "gun show" in effect the entire time - people got autographed photos and loved to see her flex her biceps - but never once had to use her banshee scream!

 

Coming up next for us in two weekends is another excellent return to Ohio, this time with all four Comicsburgh creators as special guests (that is to say, we get free tables!) at Great Lakes Geek Fest, Sat Oct 21, put on by the Robot Zero comic shop at SPIRE Academy in Geneva, Ohio (right by Lake Erie). Joining us on the ride will be our new actress Diana, who now fills the role of Vendetta, the Italian spirit of vengeance. A couple days ago, Diana filmed our latest custom and blew us away with her expressive acting and dedication to the role.
There's no better person to fill that shiny crimson catsuit - so if you're in Northern Ohio, please come to Geek Fest, buy some comics and get Vendetta's autograph: Ciao Bella!

 

Here's the rest of our schedule for the upcoming fall, along with the heroine who will be with us at each event:

Nov 4-5  Akron Comicon   featuring Devana 
Nov 11  Horror Realm Flea    Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South hotel    with Darbouka
Nov 19  Buckeye Comicon  Columbus   featuring Arctica
Nov 27  Local Comic Shop Day at New Dimension Comic, Waterfront (Homestead, PA)
Dec 16   Big Apple Comicon   New Yorker Hotel NYC   hopefully featuring Arogya (she's not confirmed yet)

Hope to see you at one of these events, and have a fantastic fall!
