Heroes Convention 2014 Cosplay!




We here at The Epic Review had such a great time at Heroes Con this year!  We met lots of cool people, spoke with some really great vendors, and, of course, saw tons of amazing costumes!  Here are some of our favorites!  (Once again, you'll notice The Reel Brad Bell isn't in any of the photos. This year he was in line to meet Kevin Eastman, one of the creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!!!)

Several members of The Epic Review and friends decided to do a group costume this year as characters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  Unfortunately, Apple Jack double booked herself that day, and Fluttershy was a bit overwhelmed by the crowd and so wasn't available for many pictures, but the rest of us had a blast!

Fluttershy, Rarity and Spike, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Twilight Sparkle


Photobomb from Pinkie Pie

Spike sitting on a pile of gems


Pinkie Pie loving on her Hellboy from Handmade Stuffs
I'm pretty sure Spike is trying to munch on those gems in this one


Barbecue 17 didn't join in on the My Little Pony theme we had going, but he did put together a really good Star-Lord costume.
Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon


Star-Lord and Emmet from the Lego Movie, both played by Chris Pratt
We interviewed a few vendors we really liked--the interviews should be posted soon!  Jennifer from Handmade Stuffs...

...and a random Joker, you know, just because...



...and Danielle Ward from Little Petal.





There was another group of ponies, as well as several solo fillies.
Derpy and Nightmare Moon/Princess Luna
The "other" ponies!  ...with our Twilight filling in.  Hey, are they holding Handmade Stuffs dolls???
I think Pinkie Pie duplicated herself again...

A few fans wanted a photo
