Hailing from the west side of Queens, Batwoman NYC is New York City’s very own Kate Kane…without the fortune, that is. Coffee-guzzling comic saleswoman by day, red-headed caped crusader by night, she’s been donning the mask regularly as of 2016. Since her debut at Flamecon 2, she continues to upgrade and expand upon her suit and gear with the aid of cosplay mastermind John Andrade of The Quiver Cosplay.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s…that pale-skinned perpetual host of the official Flame Con parties, Ginger Rodger! Come see Ginger, who has been described by many, as “on stage”, “holding a microphone”, and “seriously not wearing clothes”. Those who don’t suffer the grave misfortune of being blinded by Ginger’s reflectively luminescent skin under stage lights will be gagging on Ginger’s ability to host a queer party AND be almost-but-not-completely naked AT THE SAME TIME. Some of you may not have thought that was humanly possible but Ginger is here to defy your expectations and rob you of your sanity!
