Let me add that all 3 of these cosplayers missed the big photoshoot they were there for, and without a second's thought or hesitation. The professor knew Dana a little from earlier shoots, and when she told him to go, to not miss out, he brushed off her protests with a smile and an assurance that her health was the only important thing.
When John and I left the group we assumed the crisis was over, when in fact it would take them all another two hours (!!) to transport McGonagall to her room just one sky-bridge away. There were no wheelchairs available (something I'll definitely be mentioning to Dragon Con) so the three had to carefully walk the poor lady through the suffocating crowds - pausing often for her to sit and rest - to get just one hotel over and up to her room. (In the hotel's defense, we did have paramedics quickly on hand; you can see them in my video. Just no wheelchairs.)
On the bright side, I'm told that by the next morning the professor was right as rain.
Before they parted ways that night, the trio went back to the area of their missed photoshoot and took this for the professor:
I hope she keeps it as a happy reminder of friends and cosplay family. :)
These three make me proud to be a geek, you guys. They're the perfect examples of the kindness and kinship I feel every time I'm at a con, and I hope you'll go show them some love:
Joker is Dana Elliott, Superman is Jason Spencer, and Dr. Poison is Claudia Martinez. (Links to their Instagram accounts.) They have no idea I'm doing this, but I wanted to shine a little light on their kindness. Thanks for stepping up, you three!
