This weekend, our friends over at Geeks Out put on the third annual Flame Con. Flame Con, at the New York Marriott in Brooklyn, is an LGBTQ-focused comic, art and entertainment convention. Last year Flame Con’s was the biggest queer-focused pop culture expo ever held in New York.

Flame Con had a number of special guests. Some of the most exciting included Vincent Rodriguez III of Crazy Ex-GirlfriendDan Parent, the creator of Archie Comics’ first gay character, Kevin Keller and Marc Andreyko, editor of the Pulse benefit anthology Love is Love.

Though Flame Con had a number of outstanding events and panels — we wish we could have been there for “Revenge of the Queer: Canonically Straight Characters Occupying Queer Spaces” or “How Comics Saved My Life” — one of the best parts of any convention is the cosplay. Flame Con was no exception — a number of brilliant cosplayers were out in full regalia. Here are a few of our favorites.

This Diva Plavalaguna from The Fifth Element certainly stood out!
