    Cosplay Appreciation Day: Batman
I know we’ve already had a spotlight today, but then, well, there was an ass hat, as one is apt to encounter on the Internet.  And rather than responding to trollish asshattery in kind, Gail Simone put a wonderfully positive spin on the whole thing by declaring it #CosplayAppreciationDay.  Head on over to twitter and see, it’s amazing. 
So I returned to the gallery to dig out the best darn Batman Cosplayer I know: I wish I could shout out to him properly, but, uh, I only know him as Matches Malone.
Yes, really.  But he made every bit of that costume himself, and the love shows in every  pic.

Cat-Tales is the real story, a Catwoman metafiction series by Chris Dee. Let’s say nearly everything you’ve ever read in a comic book is wrong. The identities are correct: Bruce Wayne is Batman, Selina Kyle is Catwoman. They live in Gotham City. There is a Wayne Manor, a Batcave and Batsignal, etc. But the rest is all exaggeration, distortion, and often the outright lies of a sensationalist tabloid called The Gotham Post, otherwise known as DC Comics. Cat-Tales tells the truth behind that fiction, revealing characters that are more complex and fully-human than anyone thought possible. Heart-stopping romance, side-splitting humor, and poignantly understated tragedy, it’s all here: the man inside the Bat, the woman within the Cat, the life between the panels, the truth behind the masks. * * * * * *

Chris Dee is an award-winning playwright, entertainment consultant, and metafiction author who brings real life experience to her storyverse, fusing it with unimagined truth and depth.

She is a woman who has squatted down next to a 500-lb Bengal tiger and petted its fur.  She has held an ocelot in her arms and allowed it to ‘groom’ her forearm.  She has spent the night in a cabin with two rambunctious caracals.  She studied art in Florence, Italy, worked in a museum and walked through its galleries after closing.  She knows the difference between Picasso and Pissarro, Manet and Monet.  She has been inside Cartier.  She has been inside a corporate board room.  She has been on a yacht and in a private plane. 

The life experience Chris Dee brings to these tales brings a depth to the characters unseen in any previous incarnations.

Remarkable. Highly recommend.”

“Perrrrrfect”
—Comic Book and Movie Reviews

“A Catwoman who could be sexy and playful, joyful and bitchy, witty and kinky and smart, simply because that is who she is”
— Comic Book Resources

“Ten times the love and respect for the characters than the authors of the official comics… More emotion and charm than most novels on the bestseller list.”
