SyFy’s new series: “Heroes Of Cosplay”

The SyFy network’s new series, “Heroes Of Cosplay” premiered earlier tonight. The show, a sort of ComicCon-meets-”Project Runway” docu-series pits cosplayers against each other in Wizard World Portland’s cosplay competition.

The show aims provide some context for a hobby that is often misunderstood by mainstream observers, while hopefully clearing up some misconceptions.

Cosplay is 50% craftsmanship and 50% showmanship… but it’s often only the latter that gets noticed outside of the cosplay community. With the advent of social media, cosplayers who previously had to prove themselves by winning competitions or by repeatedly creating impressive costumes before gaining a following suddenly had a means to get a lot of eyeballs through Facebook and Twitter, with sexy costumes often getting the most attention.

Ming-Na Wen: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Here is a recent interview with Ming-Na Wen at ComicCon, who plays Agent Melinda May on the upcoming ABC Marvel Universe-based TV series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

No stranger to animation (Mulan; The Batman tv series) and film adaptations of gaming (Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within; Street Fighter), the entering the Marvel Universe seems like a good fit!
