More pics of Aeris as Tiny Kit at NYCC 2013. I’m Captain Marvel inspired and Kelly Sue is Kelly Sue aka a Rockstar. The second pic is from this video, it entertains me that we are the vid’s thumbnail. We also showed up in a picture in this article

we will be the stars we were always meant to be

Ever since I told her Kelly Sue liked what she’d said about Captain Marvel Aeris has wanted to meet her — “the writer of Captain Marvel! The REAL one!!!” We got in line for the panel an hour early to make sure we got in. We got to be a part of a community — Aeris stood on her chair when Kelly Sue asked the Carol Corps to stand up. And when we got to the stage afterwards the crowd parted and Kelly Sue snatched her up into a hug and I don’t know which was more happy in that moment. Janet Lee and Emily Shaw also came over to talk to Aeris about being the real live Kit; when asked what her favourite part of school is Aeris answered “Math” and both encouraged this and told her Carol must be good at math to be a pilot. As the mother of two daughters who are interested in science and math, THANK YOU. No one encouraged my interests in science when I was a teen girl so I never pursued them.

During the panel, preview art of Captain Marvel #17 featuring Kit came on screen and Aeris said (loud enough for the surrounding row to smile about it) “I’m in those pictures up there!” This is what we mean when we talk about wanting representation in our stories. We want a full and complete spectrum so every child can look up on the screen and say I’m in those pictures up there.

Thank you, all of you, for giving Aeris the very best afternoon.

Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.

I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!

There is no such thing as too old to cosplay, this is my favourite Cap costume in the movieverse and he looks amazing, and I wish I was going to SDCC JUST to see your dad in person and tell him so. 

Reblog if you want to know who people think you should cosplay as.

Please! Tell me! http://magnetgirl.tumblr.com/ask
