CAROL CORPS CALIFORNIA CONTINGENT! 

Heads up, y’all —

You know about the Disney Avengers Half Marathon Weekend, yeah?  It’s November 14th - 16th at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.  The DeFraction clan will be there — the whole family is going to walk the 5k and Fraction and I will be doing the Half. (Er… Fraction will be running the half.  I will be dragging my sorry butt along and wishing I’d been better about my training.) We’re also planning an Anaheim signing the Wednesday before the event! 

WELL.  ANYWAY.  

Disney reached out to us — they’re looking for uniformed Carol Corps volunteers to cheer along the route. I think it’s going to be crazy fun and a really spectacular way to meet fellow corpsmen. And if that’s not enough, in exchange for your service, each individual will receive a complimentary park hopper ticket if they register and participate, so that’s an incentive as well! 

Kelly Sue, what do they mean by “uniformed”?

I’m so glad you asked!  They’re looking for cosplayers, primarily.  (Doesn’t have to be Carol — Kamala, Spider-Woman, Clint, Kate… anybody who’s a part of our world would work. Non-traditional cosplay would work as well, I think — I’m thinking about some of the spectacular Captain Marvel dresses I’ve seen.)

Wah! I’m not a cosplayer, but I want to help!

Do not despair!  I asked if they’d consider non-cosplayers and I told them about our CC shirts.  The response came back that cosplayers would be preferred, but if you have this Carol Corps shirt, you could consider it your uniform and you’d be welcome to apply as well.  

What do you mean by “apply,” Kelly Sue? Is there paperwork involved? 

Not paperwork per se, but there will be a registration website going live in a couple of weeks. Everyone who registers will need to submit a photo of themselves wearing their costume (or their t-shirt!) so that Disney can do their best to screen for “potentially inappropriate clothing” — their words, not mine.  I don’t foresee any problems for us, though…?  

Anyway, if you choose to apply, here’s what they’ll ask for:

Name
Email Address
Phone Number
Address
Club or Group (if applicable) THIS IS WHERE YOU WRITE “CAROL CORPS”
Marvel Character Portrayed: (If you’re not a cosplayer, but you have the t-shirt, just put CAROL CORPS MEMBER here)

Nicole Campos has volunteered to help co-ordinate volunteers, so stay tuned for an introduction to her too. 

Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to get answers.  The site won’t be up for another week or two, but we’re getting the word out now so folks have time to plan/pull together costumes.  

Cool? Cool. See you there.

Matt Spitz sent me a scan of this beautiful Cliff Chiang Captain Marvel commission he got at Heroes Con 2014.

Carol Corps at Heroes Con!

Saturday, 4:30 pm
Room 208
CAROL CORPS
It’s the 2nd annual HeroesCon meeting of the Carol Danvers Fan Club!  What is it about Carol Danvers, a/k/a the new Captain Marvel? Carol Corps and Carol-curious convene to cuss and discuss the Carolverse: friends, foes, cats, cosplay, crossovers, that pesky hairdo, and everything in between.  Join Kelly Sue DeConnick and surprise guests for a fun end to the second day of HeroesCon!

Okay, who’s going to be there and are there any special requests?  

We always make this a bit of a party, so let’s keep that up.  

I might need a volunteer or two.  

For instance, if someone can put together a WELCOME TO THE CAROL CORP resource guide, I’ll run it off. No more than 1 or 2 pages.  I’m thinking hashtags, urls, reading lists, merch links… main character bios, maybe?  1-2 sentence arc summaries?  

Got a volunteer for that?

Captain Marvel Collage, by Andrea Fluty. 

Hey Kelly,I’m not sure if you remember me emailing you a bit under a year ago. I make intricate collages out of old comic books, I sent you some photos and asked for your opinion on art styles for a CM piece I ideally wanted to do in the future. You gave me the suggestion of Dexter Soy and I rolled with that….albeit quite a while later that I had imagined. Geeksboro Coffehouse Cinema (next to Acme Comics) decided to have an art show spotlighting female heroes in games and comics in honor of International Women’s Day, so that prompted me to get to it. It’s a 12x24x1.5” comic collage on canvas, and took 100+ hours to cut and assemble. I used old issues of CM with Mar-Vell for all of the background and color pieces, and used an image from Dexter Soy as the concept for the foreground image. The only thing on the stretched canvas is paper pieces from old CM comics; no ink work, paint, marker and etc. I’ve included some photos taken from an angle so you can see a bit more of the dimension. Her one eye alone is probably 10 to 15 different pieces of cut paper. I also did a time lapse video of a piece from start to finish at http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aIo3fNpk0wEI have hi-res scans of this piece, but the original file was corrupted and it’s in the process of being re scanned at the moment.I would love for Dexter Soy to be able to see it as well, but I couldn’t find a reliable means of communication as of yet, most of the artists I tribute in pieces are either too dead or too famous to get in touch with :) I’d love to hear some feedback from you !Have a good one,Andrea FlutyComic Relief Original Art & Prints
