Dragon*Con 2010 Black Lantern Martian Manhunter Cosplayer

Click To Enlarge

From inspecting the pictures in high resolution, I strongly suspect this is the same costume worn at the this year's Megacon, and the build of the men in both pictures is impressive. However, the arms are exposed in this version, and the cumbersome pullover mask replaced by a tighter fitting partial. While the old mask was the only area where the Megacon version faltered, this one is less accurate. Also, the human heart carried by the previous Black Lantern J'Onn J'Onzz made for a stronger visual than that half finished pop bottle the cape failed to conceal. I always figured J'Onn for a Pepper, but I'm guessing this abominable creature is all up into Coca-Cola Cherry or something...

Naw-- hey though-- I'm just playing. The suit is really sharp, and is a few tweaks away from perfection. Plus, I don't want to be made to donate a new human heart. Once again, thanks to The Irredeemable Shag for offering up his treasure trove of DragonCon 2010 Photos for us to enjoy, sometimes through ill-considered mocking of very large men.

Funny, I always thought of J'onn as more of a 7-Up guy. Though technically considering his roots in the fifties he should drink Coke classic.

I love the silver boots. They came out really nice. So did the straps. I'd like to know how people customize footwear so well...
