Cosplay is the art or practice of wearing costumes to portray characters from comics, films, animation, and science fiction. Comic conventions have boomed in popularity recently and “cosplay” – dressing up as a favorite character – is becoming more than just a hobby to many people. Now Cosplayers Suit Up For Jack. #SuitUpForJack is a trending blood donor campaign where people donate blood in costume. In addition to full costumes, participants can also choose to simply wear cosplay-inspired T-Shirts.
The Suit Up For Jack campaign was inspired by 12-year-old Jack Malott-Clarke. Jack was an avid cosplayer and attended numerous comic con type events in costume. However, Jack had to pause his cosplay when he was diagnosed at age 10 with Severe Aplastic Anaemia. Additionally, a year later he was also diagnosed with Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. Because this serious condition affects the body’s ability to make healthy blood, it means his bone marrow is empty.
Because of his condition, to date, Jack has required 132 units of blood and platelets. He has become an advocate for Canadian Blood Services. The #suitupforjack campaign was created to encourage blood donation to help others. According to Jack, “That’s what superheroes do!”
A Superhero Campaign is born and Cosplayers Suit Up For Jack.
The campaign began in Jack’s hometown of London, Ontario. McCulloch’s Costume Shop is also based in London. They created the campaign when they saw a CTV news feature on Jacks’s story and thought a good way to support Jack was to inspire fellow cosplayers to donate blood.
You only have to look at some of the costumes to realize the effort that people put into them. Cosplay has grown up. It’s an art, a hobby, and a creative pursuit. For an increasing number of people, it’s a way of life. Many Cosplayers make appearances in costume at charitable, private, and corporate events. Now that cosplayers are suiting up for Jack their creativity redirected to promoting the cause.
People who don’t wish to donate in full costume can simply wear a superhero inspired T-Shirt while donating.

From the Peter Mennie Official Blog: “My dad and I went in and for me, it was like a kid in a candy store – or a boy in a magic shop! Dozens of cool props and I had no idea what any of them were. The man behind the counter, Don McCulloch explain to me what each trick did and I finally zeroed in on the Milk Vanishing Pitcher. I used that prop for years vanishing milk, chocolate milk, juice, water until it finally wore out. I don’t have the original prop (I did for 30 or more years), but I do still have a Milk Vanishing pitcher – even for just the sentimental value.”
The Vanishing Milk Pitcher is still being sold at McCullochs all these years later. It remains a popular trick for local magicians.

How do Retail Stores deal with Covid 19 in London Ontario? Keep Calm and Keep your sense of Humour says Doug McCulloch. Dough and Rose McCulloch own and operate Londons largest Costume and Party Store in the Forest City.
Like other retail stores in London, McCullochs had to make drastic changes to business during COVID 19. During COVID shutdowns, the well known costume store had to temporarily close public access to their store. In addition to costumes the store has a large citywide balloon delivery service. In the beginning, visitors to the store were not allowed. However balloon orders were still picked up curb side or delivered.
COVID proved to be a double edged sword for the Party Store in London. Interest in costume sales plummeted during the shutdown. However… interest in balloon orders raised dramatically.
Large public gatherings like graduations had to be cancelled. Londoners decided to host private celebrations in their home. That meant they wanted to decorate things up a bit with balloon bouquets. McCullochs saw their graduation balloon orders skyrocket.
Not all Retail stores deal with covid 19 the same way. Many retailers in London have simply had to shut down or close. Others used the down time to enhance their business.
David Korhonen is owner of Icabods Escape Rooms in London . He spent the covid shutdown time enhancing his business. He updated and added new mind bending challenges to his escape rooms. This will provide an even more entertaining experience for guests. Ontario is now is Phase 3. Therefore the business is open to the public once more.
Open to the public with COVID safety measures in place.
McCullochs is also fully open to the public again. Safety measures are in place. This includes the citywide mask mandate. McCullochs is happy to participate in safe business practices. This allows the retail store to protect both staff and customers. Stay Safe Canada!
