Convention season is upon us, and venues all across the country are opening their doors to droves of spandex-clad, mask-wearing, LARPing comic and pop culture enthusiasts. This weekend, it's Tampa Bay's turn. I took a drive down to Miami for Florida Supercon to do some research on the popular convention costumes this year, and sketched them up for you in the form of a game. Behold, the Tampa Bay Times' cosplay bingo card! Suit up, grab a few comrades, and bring this bingo card to Tampa Bay Comic Con to compete with your fellow super heroes and enchanted beasts to see which one of you truly possesses the eagle eye. It's easy: Whenever you spy a cosplayer dressed as a character from one of the boxes on the grid, mark off that box. The winner is the first person to create a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line. If you spot all the characters on the card, you are a cosplay connoisseur. Print out alternative bingo cards at tampabay.com so you and your companions can compete head-to-head.
