Snake and Eva

FanimeCon 2010: Snake and Eva

You can never get enough Solid Snake. I love to see people cosplay him.

Super Archers

I am not sure why the Super Archer has lasted so long. It seems to be something that should have gone away a long time ago.

Dr. McNinja

Comic Con 2009:

I always wonder if Dr. McNinja is a Greys Anatomy McDreamy, McSteamy reference. I am not sure I will ever get an answer to this.

Deathstroke the Terminator

Wonder Con 2011: Slade

I love the character Deathstroke the Terminator, but I feel that he is in that odd spot of villain that people like too much. Writers and readers keep on wanting him to be a dark hero. They want him to be the ultimate Anti-Hero. I think that is a mistake. I like him much more as a villain. He can either have a grand plan or be a villain for hire. Either way he should not be a hero. I feel like I am a voice alone on this one.

Suits are for Villains

Cobra Commander at Comic Con 09

I was watching a pro-wresting video a few months ago and I realized that only heels wear suits. I find it an interesting idea. Suits show the audience the villain is more important. The common man is not in a suit. I think that is a great thing about this costume.

Nerd Herd

Comic Con 2009: Nerd Herd

I miss the first two seasons of Chuck. I guess it just was not meant to last. I will be missing Comic Con this year also. It is too bad.

Comic Con 2009: Madame Masque

Comic Con 2009:

I should have figured her out sooner. I love how characters like this that has seemed to fade away have been given new life.

immortal iron fist

Sand Person

Comic Con 2007: Sand Person

I love Sand People. It is my favorite Star Wares Costume. I think they do not get enough respect.

Iron Pepper

Comic Con 2010:

I like the idea of Pepper Potts with the Arc Reactor in her chest. I would love to see and area with every person wearing an Arc Reactor.

Bat Girl Gold

Comic Con 2007: Bat Girl

Oh Bat Girl, why are the many of the most popular DC female characters side kick of mail characters. When was the last new female DC character created?

Kingdom Hearts: Sora

Outside Fanimecon 2008: Sora

Always thought that the costume design for Sora is amazing. It invoked Disney and Mickey Mouse without smacking you in the face.

Purple Squid Hat

2009 Wonder Con: Squid Hat

This is not quite a costume, but she was a Wonder Con. I think this still fits in with this blog.

Indiana Jones and Dr. Elsa Schneider

Comic Con 2008: The Last Crusade

I loved this matching costume. They seemed to be pretty nice to each other, so the costume most be from the first or second act of the movie.

Joker Puppet

Comic Con 2010 Puppet Killer

I love this costume. The idea of cosplaying a henchman and carrying around the arch villain as a puppet. It is just a great idea.

Mad Max handing out Flyers

Comic Con 2010:

He was handing out fliers for a Mad Max Themed Wasteland Weekend. I love the idea, but I am not sure I want to spend the weekend out in the desert.

Hydra

Comic Con 2009: HYDRA

I am sorry this is the first Hydra costume I have ever seen. It just was not what I think of when I think of Hydra. It is still cool to see it. I wonder if there is a best of Hydra trade paperback.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Emperor Palpatine

Comic con 2009:

I am not sure who is a big enough Emperor Palpatine fan to cosplay him. This costume is O.K. but it is the best Emperor Palpatine I have ever seen.

Sunday, February 6, 2011

Darth Maul

Comic Con 2007: Darth Maul

Darth Maul is the most underused/overrated charter of all time. When he died in the end of Episode One, I thought George Lukas just wasted a character he just spent a whole movie building. I am not sure how you can be a fan of this character.

Indiana Jones

Comic Con 2006: Indiana Jones

Why does Indiana Jones cosplayers look like they are trying to pick up the camera? Is he trying to seduce me?

Steampunk Mask

Comic Con 09: Steampunk

I really love the aesthetics of Steampunk. There seems to be lots of different directions of the look to go. I think this is one of the things that keeps Steampunk fresh.

Jessica and Edward

Comic Con 2010: Jessica and Edward

I think Jessica Rabbit and Edward Scissorhands would make a great couple.

New Captain America

Comic Con 09: New Captain America

I am not sure how new the New Captain America still it. This is a very cool costume. I wonder if Bucky will be in the new movie.

Mother and Daughter

comic con 2008: Mother and Daughter

I love this combination of costumes. I think this might be the best Mother/Daughter costumes in all of Cosplay.

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Ms. Monster

Comic Con 2007: Ms. Monster

I love Ms. Monster. She is the Zombie that would be in People Magazine in a world over run by Zombies.

Jimmy Olsen Signal Watch

Comic Con 2006: Signal Watch

I love Jimmy Olsen. I think that you could write a really good Jimmy Olsen comic without Superman. I think he could be the DC news reporter writing stories about all the superheroes.
