WinterCon 2017: Cosplay and Guests!

This December 1-3, 2017 saw the latest edition of the annual sci-fi/ comic-book convention, WinterCon at the Resorts World Casino in my hometown of Queens, NY. Alan "Negative Pop" Camuto and I had the pleasure of being present to cover it, once again. Though, we were only able to attend Sunday, the 3rd. Regardless, it once again proved itself to be one of the best cons on East Coast!
There was a lot of cosplay, but we'll get to more of that in a bit. As, with last year, they had an awesome guest list. Included were reunions of two favorites of mine: Ridley Scott's masterpiece Blade Runner and classic sci-fi series Buck Rogers.
From Blade Runner, I met one of my childhood crushes, the beautiful Sean Young (above). She was so nice and friendly in person, that it helped ease the nervousness of meeting her. She is freaking Sean Young after all, who is a legend in my book!
From Buck Rogers, I met Erin Gray (above, right), who I also had a childhood on. Horror fans may also know her from Jason Goes to Hell, where she played the mom of that flick's final girl. Gray is also a total sweetheart in person. Afterwards, I got to attend a panel that had her and two other cast members, Thom (Hawk) Christopher (above, left) and Barbara (Koori) Luna (above, middle). It was was enjoyable and highly informative.
I got my DVD copies of Blade Runner and Buck Rogers, the complete series, signed by both of these beautiful and wonderfully sweet ladies. You can see my autographs, directly below.

As I said, there was some really cool cosplay on hand. I, joined in on the fun, myself, as I was, once again, Logan from this year's phenomenal movie of the same name. Here are some of my favorites:
Logan (myself) vs. (a very awesome) Mr Freeze!
 A truly awesome Black Widow and Psylocke and myself.

I don't think I have ever seen anyone do Ares before, but goddamn did this following guy ever do it awesomely! It might have been my favorite of the day!

Speaking of DC characters. there was a bunch of them, including Ares and others you have already seen in this post, posing outside: 

Scary Terry from Rick and Morty is ready for Christmas. And, he finally met Wolverine! In all seriousness this was one of the coolest cosplays of the day, bitch!
 Holy crap! This is an incredible cosplay of Roy from "Blade Runner"!
How fucking badass are these "Mad Max" cosplayers?!

Of course, there was a lot of Star Wars props and cosplay on hand, which always makes me a happy camper! 
I LOVED this R2-D2! I wish I could have taken him home with me.
 This Jawa stole parts from my bike! The little asshole is gonna eat some andamantium! 
Presenting the most random crossover of the year! But, come on, admit you would totally read this comic!

Of course, I also got to pick up some cool swag. They were as follows:

Funko Pops of:
The Shining- Jack Torrance
Star Wars- Walgreens Exclusive of an AT-AT Driver
Mortal Kombat- Kitana
and a cool as hell Daredevil tee.

In all, I had we had a freaking blast and can't wait for next year's edition!

The 70 Hottest Babes of 2017, Pt. 3, 50-41

50. Jennifer Lawrence (last year ranked 2015 #3)- The gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence returns to the list thanks to her performance in one of the year's most divisive horror movies: Darren Aronofsky's mother! Say or think what you will of the movies itself, (I happen to like it but not love it) Lawrence gives a hell of a performance and looks great in it. She also happens to be topless, although the scene itself is odd... to say the very least.

49. AJ Applegate (new)-  AJ Applegate is one of the hottest stars in the adult film world, both in terms of her beauty and her popularity. Of course, when you give performances as smoldering as hers, and look like she does, success is well deserved! Also, she has one of the best asses in the entire world, porn or otherwise.

48. Catrina (Karlee Leilani-Perez) (last year #50)- The hottest woman in pro-wrestling moves up two spots, not just she is gorgeous, but cause she had a solid year. A year, mind you, in the only widely televised wrestling show that is actually worth watching, Lucha Underground!

47. Georgia Jones (new)- Let's not mince any words here, Georgia Jones is one of the one of the most beautiful women, not just in porn, but in all of the entertainment world. She also happens to work exclusively with women which only makes her that much hotter in my humble opinion. I actually had the pleasure of meeting her a few years ago at an AVN Expo and can tell you that she has one of the sweetest and most friendly personalities that you are likely to meet.

46. Cate Blanchett (new)- I have had a crush on the classy and beautiful Ms. Kate Blanchett since she was in the in Lord of the Rings movies. But, I have to say that seeing her play a gothed up bad hottie in Thor: Ragnarok made me truly fall in love with her, all over again!

45. Maisie Richardson-Sellers (new)- One of the later additions to the best show in the Arrowverse, Legends of Tomorrow, Maisie Richardson-Sellers' character of Amaya Jiwe AKA Vixen, has fast become a favorite of mine. Vixen is gorgeous and powerful and honestly every time I see her, I am enchanted by Sellers' beauty. 

44. Anna Friel (new)- A newcomer to the list, the beautiful Anna Friel plays the character of Erika in the Anna and Erika part of the new season of The Girlfriend Experience. Said, show, in particular cause of said storyline, is THE sexiest show on all of TV. Seeing her involved in a lesbian relationship with the beautiful Amy Seimtez (Anna) is hotter than fucking hell!

43. Charlize Theron (last year ranked 2012 #61)- Charlize Theron's return to this list is fucking long over due. She is, after all, one of the most truly beautiful women in mainstream Hollywood and, one of the most talented, as well. She more than proves both of these facts. yet again, thanks to her playing the title role in the fun and stylish  Atomic Blonde, that came out earlier this year.

42. Jaimie Alexander (last year same)- It maybe hard to believe, but I firmly think that Jamie Alexander looks even more beautiful this season of Blindspot. The season itself is only just beginning to unfold and promises some real exciting shit and crazy mysteries be revealed!

41. Audrey Esparza (last year #66)- And, speaking of babes being more beautiful on Blindspot, the sexy and stunning Audrey Esperza is looking more breathtaking than ever! And, part of it is her character now having a more commanding position as her character of Zapata is now a member of the CIA, on top of working with the team. Also, she always makes the professional look so fucking caliente!

(Video) Awesome & Beautiful Veronika Rose Talks to Us at Exxxotica NJ 2017

Veronika Rose, a beautiful and inked Chaturbate (which was the booth she was at, when I saw her on Saturday) model, is absolutely fucking awesome! Full disclosure, we have been friends on Twitter since last year. But, this year's Exxxotica was our first time meeting each other, in person. I saw it as the perfect chance to have an interview with her. We got to talk about how she got involved with Chaturbate, shooting with the also gorgeous and fucking awesome Draven Star, the Inked Awards, some of the topics we love talking about to each on Twitter including horror movies and Conan the Barbarian, and more.
You can see it in the video below:

The 70 Hottest Babes of 2017, Pt. 2, 60-51

60. Sophie Turner (last year #61)- Sophie Turner's character of Sansa on Game of Thrones continues to grow and develop becoming a more and more fascinating character after each and every season and, even, episode. This last season, in particular, was a great one for her character!

59. Cali Carter (new)- The gorgeous Cali Carter continues to garner more success and popularity in the adult world. And, rightfully so, may I add! Collecting various awards and nominations thanks to her exquisite beauty, hot as fucking hell body (tell me that ass isn't perfect!), and nasty and smoldering onscreen fucking, the sky is the limit for Cali's future!

58. Chyler Leigh (last year #62)- The Arrowverse is filled with relationships that I could give a flying fuck about. Chyler Leigh's character of Alex Danvers and Maggie (Floriana Lima), (both on Supergirl) I do actually like together and not just cause they look great together. Although, I could still use a little less drama...

57. Anna Bell Peaks (last year #64)- Sexy, smart, and beautiful Anna Bell Peaks is one of the biggest names in the skin world. She is a multi-award winner. In fact, at the 2017 Inked Awards, alone, she picked up 5 awards, as you can see them in the pic to the left!

56. Ali Larter (last year ranked 2008 #36)- The delicious Ali Larter makes a long overdue return to the list thanks to her role in the decently entertaining Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. That being said, I would be quite if this was actually the final chapter, although we horror fans know these never are...

55. Blanca Saurez (new)- This Spanish beauty was not only breathtaking in Spanish horror/ thriller/ dark comedy The Bar, but gave a hell of a performance. Said film, from genre master Alex de la Iglesia, is one of the year's very best. And, with that stunningly beautiful face, she is truly one of the world's most gorgeous women.

54. Garance Marillier (new)- At 19, this breathtaking French beauty is probably the youngest babe on this year's list. But, between her flawless acting in the excellent French horror drama Raw and her natural beauty, she more than deserves her spot.

53. Naomi Watts (new)- With the fucking awesome Twin Peaks: The Return, I was reminded just how much I love the still beautiful and ultra talented Naomi Watts. Her performance was so likable, and she so naturally beautiful, that I find it impossible to believe that I was alone in that feeling.

52. Danielle Panabaker (last year #58)- The gorgeous Danielle Panabaker moves up a couple of spots thanks to the awesome use of her as both Caitlin Snow and her bad girl alter ego Killer Frost on The Flash. In particular, you can thank anytime she is Frost, which is, quite honestly and ironically, hot as fuck!

51. Allison Williams (new)- One of the year's finest horror films, Get Out, featured a breakthrough from the thoroughly beautiful Ms. Allison Williams. I have been a long time admirer of her, but it was great to finally see her in a genre pic, especially one as excellent as this one.
