Heroes of Cosplay: Now Only Mostly Awful

In Which Trae Talks About Season 1.5 of Heroes of Cosplay

I have been working conventions for almost twenty years, and have helped put on a cosplay contest for the last nine in varying capacities. I admittedly haven’t been a serious cosplayer myself since I gave it up about a decade ago, but it’s still a world I’m heavily immersed in.

So needless to say I’ve been watching Heroes of Cosplay since episode one.

…but not because I like it. I’ve been watching Heroes of Cosplay for the same reason you might have eavesdropped on someone gossiping about your friends back in High School: So I know exactly what’s being said.

The bullscat filled “Season 1.5” finale aired last night though, so (as I did last year) I thought I’d gather my thoughts about the entire season.

Episode 23 – Call them BishouBros.

On this fortnight’s installment we talk about the return of Heroes of Cosplay, Ant Man’s director shuffle, Fantasic Four books leaving shelves just as Fox works on the film, a possible Stargate reboot, everyone freaking out about Michael Bay’s Evangelion comments, progress on Pacific Rim 2, and the second season of the (My) Immortal webseries.

That, and we’ve come up with a term for insecure dudes who like Sailor Moon.

Episode 9 – Live at Daisho Con!

Our ninth installment was recorded live at Daisho Con 2013 in the Wisconsin Dells! We talk about Thor 2, the (sadly) continued existence of Heroes of Cosplay, the Night of the Doctor and, since we recorded this hours before the real 50th Anniversary Doctor Who episode aired, we make up what happened in the special.

It’s fun.

Episode 2 – Declassified

On the second episode of Nerd & Tie, Pher, Nick and Trae discuss the leaked Guardians of the Galaxy footage, the midwest regional Con scene, the Patlabor live action film, the declassification of Area 51… and the new Syfy reality series Heroes of Cosplay.

Also, Nick says the Patlabor OVA is on Hulu, but he’s lying. The TV series is though.

Trae also keeps calling the F-117 the “F-115” because he is dumb.
