The next stop for the Heroes of Cosplay is Kansas City's Planet Comicon. The show claims it's the most popular pop-culture event in the midwest, a two-day event that has two cosplay competitions: an individual competition and one dedicated to group skits.
The show begins with Holly and Jessica throwing a costume-themed barbecue as Picard and Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation. That's impossible to unsee. Becky has now joined forces with the often irritating dynamic duo. After brainstorming a bit about dragons, they come up with Astrid (Becky), Ruffnut and Tuffnut (Holly and Jessica) and dragon Gronickle. They assembled their friends to build the dragon prop.
Jesse, the show's token male, settles on being a pirate version of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. He creates a vest from actual elk skin and then christens it in saltwater by wearing the costume and walking into the ocean.
