Dallas Fan Expo is just around the corner that will tart the beginning of the comic book convention season in North Texas. We look back to the Dallas Comic Con 2014 where we met Mica Brockman at the convention; the Dallas Comic Con was one of her first conventions where she began cosplaying; Bob Sanders sat down with Mica to get her insight on cosplay and the conventions.
Maybe the most iconic female comic book character is Wonder Woman. From fighting the Nazis in WWII to the stylish 70’s tv show to all sorts of media versions of today……Wonder Woman has inspired generations of young girls…..a Superhero in every sense.
Dallas Comic Con is fortunate to have a regular Wonder Woman cosplayer in Mica Brockman. Although relatively new to cosplaying, only a couple of years, she has loved Wonder Woman since a child and has looked for opportunities to wear the Red, White and Blue at every opportunity. The con experience gives her more exposure to inspire others. Inspiration that happened to her during the Linda Carter Wonder Woman television series of the 1970’s. She says, “There were a lot of blonde ditzy types on tv back then and I loved that she was a strong independent brunette who could take care of business and protect the little guy. She was who I wanted to be when I grew up.”
As for Mica’s inspiration for others, “my nieces love going to the cons with me. They get to see things from their imagination brought to life. One of them actually asked Santa for a Wonder Woman costume for Christmas this year. My favorite part of dressing up as Wonder Woman is seeing the joy in little girls faces when they see me. For that short amount of time I get to portray their hero. I am just glad to say that I have always had pleasant experiences at the cons. Everyone has always treated me with respect.”
What cosplaying means to Mica, “For me, the costumes are my way of showing my love for the different characters. Wonder Woman will always be my favorite. I just turned forty this year and I am new to the cosplay world. My costumes are either store-bought or pieced together from different sources. I am just starting to experiment with making some of my own pieces. Nothing will be ready for this next con. Some of them may ever work out! But that won’t stop me from dressing up and enjoying my time at the cons.”
Mica describes herself as, “as a comic reader, gamer, and movie fan. I am not the person who knows everything about a character, story line or show. I am the fan who gets excited to experience and enjoy what each of these things brings to the world.”
“Truthfully the thing I am most looking forward to at the next con is getting to take my nieces to meet ‘Rose Tyler’ and ‘Capt. Jack’. We are big Doctor Who fans! So I am sure we will all be in Doctor Who themed clothes.”
