Cool Cosplayers

The term cosplay applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context. - Wikipedia

I found this picture of some cosplayers on the web emulating Harry, Molly and Murphy and thought it to be an interesting picture.

She lost me at "None Dresden Files reading MF!" I was so amused I didn't hear a thing that came after ...

And yes, there was a 2-season TV series, but a lot of Dresden fans would rather not mention it. I liked it well enough for what it was, but it didn't inspire me to pick up the books--this thread did that.
Book is on wait list so far
did view first 2 episodes tv series on recent plane flight
am getting rest
interesting like Supernatural tv show but no Devil or Angels - yet
Dresden seems weak wizard and uses tricks to defeat powerful foe

1 question: how did Dresden father who had no magic fend off powerful uncle?
a threat to "kill" from failed magician seems without weight

character Dresden was bad vampire in Gates show
Sorry Gates failed.

The uncle wanted Harry. If the uncle had killed the father, especially in Harry's presence, he would have "lost" Harry.

Oh, and Harry is NO weakling... 1. He tries (but often fails) to keep a low profile. 2. Even he didn't know exactly how powerful he actually is, but learns more as the written series continues.

They really could have done a better job supporting and promoting the tv show. I'm still holding out hope for a reboot.

I recommend you do what I do.

Think of the TV series as completely different from the book series.

Only one of the TV episodes is based on a book in the series. The characters and stories in the TV series are only very loosely based on the characters and stories in the book series.

Most of all, enjoy!
