Latte Box

Wonder Con 2008: Latte Box

Yeah, I don't get this costume, but I am not sure I am the target market.

Etrigan the Demon

Comic Con 2007: The Demon

I think about Marvel and DC Comics a lot. I think they are different in ways that are hard to describe. I think that The Demon is a very DC character. I think Black Knight is the marvel version of this character, not Gargoyle. He seems closer to Gargoyle, but I think the curse is more like Black Knight.

Famous Cosplayer

Comic Con 2006: Work is a Horror Show

Zach Selwyn is the most famous person I have a photo of in Costume. I know he is not that famous, but he has been on TV.

Mario and Zelda

Comic Con 2006: New Game?

There is something creepy about this photo. The real life looking Zelda and the big plastic Mario head do not look good together.

Disney God

Comic Con 09: Disney Hades

This is a strange character to see. You do not see that many Disney Villains at Comic Con.

Leather Jacket Wolverine

Comic Con 2006: Wolverine

This guy got lucky when Hugh Jackman got the role of Wolverine.

Rebel Troopers

Comic Con 2006: Rebel Trooper

The Rebel Troopers get their ass kicked at the start of a New Hope. I guess that is how Luke and Han get promoted so quickly during the Rebellion.

Comic Con 2007:

This costume is really frightening. There is something about zombies that really freaks me out.

Ghost Mario

Comic Con 09: Ghost Mario

You got to love this Ghost Mario costume. I love just how large the costume is. It shows real love for Mario and Super Mario Bros.
Wonder Con 2007: Radioactive Raccoon

You got to love when dressing like a furry is socially accessible.

What kind of relationship is this?

Wonder Con 2007: wolverine and lady deathStrike

I wonder what it means for a couple to be dressed like Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike. Are they saying something about their relationship? I wonder if they fight a lot

Lum Invader

Comic Con 2008: Lum Invader

I was reading the Wikipedia page for Lum Invader and found out she is a Magical Girlfriend. The thought there is a whole genre about this idea is fantastic to me.

Green Lantern Corp

Wonder Con 2007: Green Lanterns

I love the design of both of these costumes. I am not sure if they are original or from a specific comic. I love the idea of the bulletproof vest as a Green Lantern Uniform. I love the idea of anyone making their own Green Lantern Corp costume.

Dress with Lights

Comic Con 2007: Dress with Lights

I am not sure if this is a character or just a woman with a light up dress.

Latex Harley Quinn

Comic Con 2009: Latex Harley Quinn

The whole thing about bring a costume from a cartoon or a comic book is that you do not know what the material should be. I think this gives cosplayers the chance to be creative.

Zombie Captain America

Comic Con 09: Zombie Captain America

I have never read the Marvel Zombies comic. I think this is a great costume. I would like to see more zombie costumes.

Orion Unmasked

Comic Con 2008: Orion

What I love about this costume is that he even dyed his hair for it. This is a nice touch.

Comic Con 09: Riddle me this

I am trying to think about who Christopher Nolan's Riddler would be. Not the actor, but the character. I like the idea of a super smart villain who is obsessed with the idea of being smarter and more cunning then Batman. He is a villain because he is trying to show he is better. If I was rebooting the Batman comic, I would make the Riddler someone who starts off as a hero helping Batman, but turns out to be a villain. I like the idea of someone who keeps on switching from good to evil because it is a challenge to do so.

Umbrella Corporation Scientists

Comic Con 2008: Umbrella Corporation Scientists

I asked them, "How do you feel working for a company that is always killing their employees"

one said, "No, we don't kill the employees, we kill our patients."

two said, "We turn the employees into zombies."

Princess Midna

Fanimecon: Midna

This is am amazing costume. The body paint and the wig. It is great.

Comic Con 2009: Ka-Pow

I love that she was carry around this prop. I think it is wonderful. It makes it one of the more interesting Bat Girl costumes I have seen.

Yellow Lantern

Comic Con 09: sinestro corps

I think the Yellow Lantern Corp is a really good idea. I think it really saved the character of the Green Lantern. The current rainbow lanterns idea I think really works. I want to see where it goes after the Black Lanterns.

Cobra Unmasked

Comic Con 2009: Cobra Unmasked

So that is what Cobra Commander looks like under the mask.

Tank Girl

Comic Con 2007: Tank girl

Tank Girl is to me, the best unknown underground comic character of all time. I would say way more people know us her then ever read the comic. I guess a movie will do that.

Stark Heart

Comic Con 09: Stark Pacemaker

Okay, this might not really be a costume. It would be an interesting way to have artificial hearts.

Love/Hate Green Arrow

Comic Con 2008: Green Arrow

I have a love-hate Relationship with green arrow. I am not a fan of character who have no super human powers, but are just really well trained. I think they are cheesy in this day and age. I think there would be a villain who would slaughter all of them. Just tell me he has superhuman aim or the ability to know exactly where the week point in any defense is. That would work for me. The DC universe is just packed with these extremely high level martial artist. My idea would never fly.

Mad Man

Comic Con 2008: Madman

I like this costume because the geek nature of the character comes through. It is a great job of cosplay.

Old School Sandman

Comic Con 09: Old School Sandman

I know that I am unlike most of the people my ages because I like Gardner Fox Sandman more than the the Neil Gaiman Sandman. I love this costume because of that.

Comic Con 2008: Ghostbusters

The Ghostbusters always group in sets of three or four. You never see five or more Ghostbusters together

Comic Con 2008: Proton Pack

Thursday, January 7, 2010

Indy and Marion

Comic Con 2008: Raiders of the Lost Ark

The monkey is a nice touch.

Black Rubber Batgirl

Comic Con 2008: Black Rubber Batgirl

When I see this costume, I think it is not as pretty as the costume would be in a comic book or a movie. I have to come to think this costume might be more realistic. This is what a real life superhero uniform would look like now.

Shinny, Happy, Zombies

Comic Con 2009: Happy Zombies

Taking this photo lead me to play Plants v. Zombies. It is a great game and you should check it out.

Save the Cheerleader, Save the World!

Comic Con 2007: Save the Cheerleader

I have not watched Heroes in two seasons. I don't know if is any easier to cosplay now. My guess is it is not. I am not sure it is worth watching. I am still waiting to see someone cosplay future Hiro. Maybe next year.

Comic Con 2007: Give me a S-A-V-E.....

decorator crab

Monterey Aquarium: Decorator Crab

I loved this guy. He had a lot of fun dressed like a Decorator Crab.

Monterey Aquarium: Crab Back
