I so wish we had pics of the Black Widow we saw at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. Holy farking hell she was ridiculously hot.

Both Jokers are pretty damned good.

Zombie Joker?
 
2012-11-07 08:53:05 PM  
Whoa.

How weird would it be to see that guy, and hear him talk in a completely-Joker-inappropriate voice? Like Screech.

I've never been to a comic-con but I have the idea in my head that most of the really hot cosplay girls are simply plants from the companies. No, they don't wear name tags or hand out literature, but they are most certainly 'actors'

Am I wrong?

Because in addition to all being hot and insanely crafty at costume design, they all seem too young to "embrace" the geek-ness.


I'd say 8 out of 10 cosplay girls are plants. Am I right?
 
2012-11-07 08:56:46 PM  
Both the Jokers were pretty decent, but for my money I'll take the cutie done up as the 10th Doctor.
 
2012-11-07 08:56:58 PM  
I'm pretty sure I saw that exact Deadpool at AX this year. I called her Spiderman, she threw a fit, so I topped it off with a Red Hood and she stormed off super pissed off. For cosplaying as someone like Deadpool, you should probably have something resembling a sense of humor.

I always think that cosplay shows us that the most improbable thing about superheroes aren't the powers, or the fact they are always in the right (or wrong) place at the right time, that their friends don't recognize them without glasses. Its the costumes. Unless your superpower is super-stitchery or the ability to stay cool in leather, the costumes can't possibly work.

The Muthaship: Yo Subby, Imma let you finish (because that was an awesome Ledger Joker), but that Gene Simmons' Demon was top shelf too.


Subby here. Simmons' Demon is great, almost perfect, but he's missing the iconic tongue. I know that's not his fault since he didn't choose to have a normal tongue, but you gotta have that.

The Ledger Joker just blew me away. I had to keep looking to see if there was any way I could actually tell a difference, and I just can't. The hair, the eyes, the make-up. He's even got that creepy dancing tilt that Joker did throughout the movie.

2012-11-07 09:20:06 PM  
Just realized something from the movie. They make a point of emphasizing the Joker's clothing is hand made with no labels and he had nothing but knives. Just like Bruce Wayne ordering 10000 bat ears to hide the trail, the Joker in his way was hiding his trail.

Fantastic connection, but I'm probably late to the game.

1. Don't tell me they couldn't have recast the Joker for Nolan's last flick. Jeez.

2. The only other one worth a damn was Moe Syzlak. Everything else was the same-old "look at me" crowd of girls in skimpy outfits and guys as macho or comedic icons.

I would say that average is accurate for the "hot" looking girls. There are exceptions but most are either an industry plant or just skimpied out in a public setting to try to get noticed for her modeling/acting career.

There's your variable, you would also have to add in attention whores as well, but those are mainly 5-6s on the scale or fat chicks wanting to show off their fat tits. The problem is once the costume comes off the tits go floooooop.....

Lol, I had a friend of a friend come ask me if I could get his arms defined in time to wear his bane costume to dragoncon in Atlanta. It was like 3 weeks before the event, he would have had to lose almost 50lbs and workout for 6 months hard to get what he wanted. Some people are unrealistic.

Gal does have an amazing figure and some great costumes too, I just wonder how she keeps her waist so trim and tiny when you can tell by her body shape that she runs a bit towards chubby.

Also can any male Farkers clue me in as to why the mega bubble butt has become so popular in recent years? I just don't get it, I have seen some pictures of women who, while they were in proportion everywhere else were sporting a waaaay out of proportion bubble butt. I don't get the allure of a gigantic butt on a regular sized woman?!? Anyone?

As a tiny woman with an arse more like a twelve year old boy I wouldn't want a massive butt, doubt I could grow one either, but I'd look seriously weird with with an arse like that...
 
2012-11-08 12:42:47 PM  
Wow on a lot of that...but i do wish that such photo sets specifically let me know which ones were actual attendees who made their own vs. ones that are made by pros, and/or worn by paid models who had pro makeup artists.
Pro stuff is cool and all, but it's kinda supposed to be. So i'm never quite as impressed by it, as i am by home amateurs doing their own work.

Probably just me, and maybe other people who have costume on the hobby list. Gives you a certain amount of snooty about such things i guess.

We'd need pics so that we, as uninvolved 3rd parties, can decide whether your butt is too small.

I just don't get it, I have seen some pictures of women who, while they were in proportion everywhere else were sporting a waaaay out of proportion bubble butt. I don't get the allure of a gigantic butt on a regular sized woman?!? Anyone?As a tiny woman with an arse more like a twelve year old boy I wouldn't want a massive butt, doubt I could grow one either, but I'd look seriously weird with with an arse like that...


you should consult an expert in such matters such as Sir Mix A lot

A few of those are re-do's from San Diego Comic-Con. The Hello Kitty R2D2 sticks out the most to me. I guess she didn't get enough attention in SD.

The Punisher girls. Those might be my favorite. All they had to do was wear some tight clothes and a t-shirt with a skull on it.

Also Vampirella and the girl next to Vampirella. Excellent, excellent.

I will be sure to show all these hot chicks my comic collection and a bunch of my limited edition collectibles. I'm sure it will impress them right into my bed.
