Welcome back to the third episode of Cosplayer HotSpot – where I interview interesting cosplayers I have met since I started writing my book “Anatomy of a Cosplayer: Tales From Behind the Mask.” Some have been interviewed in the book, while others I met after publishing it – all have intriguing stories that deserve being told in this series.
Ed O’Connell is a good friend who is also one of the founders of the Rebel Legion costume group (which I didn’t know until long after I started writing my book). He also was very responsible for me joining the group back in the beginning. He is also the founder of NYC’s USS Growler NCC – 76369 Star Trek costuming group. And he has been active in science fiction costuming since the early 90s.
Ed’s current roster of costumes are:
501st Legion: Imperial Crewman, Imperial Navy. Imperial Gunner
Rebel Legion: Rebel Pilot, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Hawkbat Pilot
GI Joe: Recondo
Star Trek, StarGate, Battlestar Galactica
