What to Wear to Supercon: Costume Advice From Callie Cosplay

Summer is here! And while for some that might mean beach adventures and hours spent toasting in the sun, for others it's convention season.

While some folks attend conventions as mere mortals, it's always more fun to let your super hero - or super geek - alter-ego come out to play.

This year's Florida Supercon, which takes place through Sunday at the Miami Airport Convention Center, will have some pretty colorfully dressed guests. "It's like a surprise. You're never sure what you are going to see at these types of conventions," says Farrah McEwen, VP and Co-Owner of Mac's Comics & Collectibles Inc. But one of the best parts of dressing up, she adds, is being able to "mingle with other people in your own interest groups."
