EXCLUSIVE: Grodd Strikes in New "The Flash" Photos
With Daredevil renewed for a second season, Netflix and Marvel may be looking for a way to expand the series into a franchise. Allow us to suggest a kid-friendly spinoff, starring 3-year-old Parker as the guardian of Hell’s Preschool.
The son of John Nettles of City Light Studio, Parker is simultaneously fearsome and cute as a button as Daredevil in this terrific series of cosplay photos taken by his father.
It’s not every Sunday afternoon that you walk down the street and bump into nearly a dozen people dressed as assorted Spider-characters, from Mary Jane Watson and Spider-Girl to Venom and Carnage. However, CBR contributor Alexa Tomaszewski was leaving work yesterday in Toronto — it wasn’t even a convention weekend! — and stumbled upon what could’ve been mistaken for the cast of Marvel’s “Spider-Verse” storyline.
Never let it be said The Joker isn’t the sentimental type. After all, he maintains a trophy wall, as depicted in a 2005 commission by Brian Bolland. With a lot of work, and some help from friends, cosplayer Anthony Misiano (aka Harley’s Joker) has brought that illustration to life in an unnerving homage.
“Believe it or not, altogether roughly 45 photos were used in the final composition, 16 of which just for the Joker alone,” Misiano wrote on Facebook. “You’d never guess how much work really does go into it all.”
While there are undoubtedly some fans willing to argue about who would win in a fight between the god of thunder and the Sentinel of Liberty (no contest!), there’s little debating how amazing this Thor-versus-Captain America cosplay photo shoot is.
Photographed by Adrian Gibbs, the series stars Sharon Rose as Captain America and Kayley Marie as Thor, who stand ready for a clash of uru and vibranium. The details on both costumes are incredible, but I particularly like Cap’s shield.
While some students play video games or merely hang out in their spare time, Philadelphia University’s Jackson Gordon always has bigger things in mind, including the designs for the functional Batsuit he debuted two weeks ago at Katsucon.
Gordon, an industrial design student, told USA Today his suit can handle anything short of a bullet: punches, machetes, baseball bats, the works. While designing the suit, he made sure it wouldn’t inhibit movement, which he is more than happy to demonstrate with a few moves he picked up while earning his black belt in kung fu.
Inspired by the release of the trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man, designer Stefanos Anagnostopoulos set out to design a helmet like the one Paul Rudd wears in the film, and to do it in a day. What took him 10 hours to design required a staggering 50 hours to print on 3D prints, but you can’t really argue with the results.
On his personal YouTube channel, James Bruton has begun a Hulk-sized undertaking. Well, a Hulkbuster-sized undertaking, at any rate — he’s 23 videos into a 3D printing project to build his own WiFi enabled Hulkbuster Iron Man armor.
And that’s not all — Bruton’s armor is fully functional, as can be seen in a handful of the later installments when he tries it on for size. Jury’s still out on whether or not it could handle the Hulk himself, though; I suppose we’ll have to wait and see in his last video!
You can check out his first video below and the rest on his YouTube channel. Also check out his website, where he shows off many of his other products — which include an R2D2, an Alien xenomorph suit and a life-sized Iron Man MKVI costume armor, among others.
Prince Armory, which created that unnerving Joker armor and the breathtaking Loki armor, has gone medieval on a galaxy far, far away, unveiling a version of Darth Vader that’s both beautiful and frightening.
Jokingly referred to as the “Darth Knight,” the custom mask, helmet and suit are made of leather. If you want other details, like, say, the price, you’ll have to contact Prince Armory. However, I imagine it’ll cost you … and they don’t accept Republic Dataries.
When U.K. cosplayer Stevie Dee wanted a realistic Batsuit, he turned not to online costumers but to 3D printing.
According to 3D Print, the suit was 3D modeled before being printed. A mold was then created for casting of the armor (everything except the cape and undersuit shown in the photos was produced through 3D printing). “The suit is quite comfy to wear and movement is great,” Dee said. “I can’t bend at the stomach but I didn’t expect that.”
As the headline states, this may be the absolute worst or the most inspired Pikachu cosplay in history, Really, it could go either way, likely depending to some extent on your fondness for the Greendale Human Being.
The photos — yes, there are more, below — were snapped at Comiket 87, which wrapped up today at the Tokyo Big Sight. Held twice annually, in August and December, Comiket (aka Comic Market) is the world’s largest dojinshi fair, drawing more than a half-million attendees. This edition opened Sunday with 180,000 people, an increase of about 10,000 from the first day of August’s Comiket 86.
It never feels like the holidays without a visit from Santa Doom, the fearsome Monarch of Christmas. Thankfully, Cash Branson was on hand to channel the armor-clad spirit of the season and spread yuletide fear. He even came bearing a Naughty List, which includes Reed Richards, Carol Danvers and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank.
Santa Doom was famously introduced by Scott Lobdell and John Byrne in 1991’s What The-?! #10, in which Santa Claus is seriously injured trying to deliver a present to Doom’s castle, and asks the Latverian dictator to complete his Christmas rounds.
Distractotron has released the appropriately titled “X-Men Epic Cosplay Video,” featuring a wide range of Marvel’s mutant — and mutant-adjacent characters — from Archangel and Scarlet Witch to Omega Red and Apocalypse. There are even anti-mutant protestors, and I’m pretty sure I spotted Doug Ramsey.
Shot at DragonCon by Blake Faucette, Justin Reich and Micah Moore, it includes animation by Reich, and a lot of slow-motion effects. Fair warning: The confrontation between the Beast and Toad is the stuff of nightmares. Don’t believe me? Just look below …
These incredible photos of cosplayer Dark Incognito as a female Joker — rather than Harley Quinn or Duela Dent — makes me wish DC Comics has used the New 52 as an opportunity to introduce a Clown Princess of Crime. The shakeup to the decades-old dynamic with Batman could’ve been fascinating.
With a metro population of 20 million, Cairo suffers from all the traffic, pollution and noise problems you’d expect from the wold’s 10th-largest urban area. Even lifelong residents can find daily life in the city’s crowded streets to be a struggle. But how would a superhero fare in Egypt’s capital?
That’s what 20-year-old Hossam Atef set out to discover in a series of photographs depicting Spider-Man — actually, 21-year-old chef Atef Saad — as he experiences a normal day in Cairo, running to catch an overcrowded bus, finding a place to sit on the Metro and driving a tuk-tuk, among other activities.
As the former owner of a Chihuahua with an extensive wardrobe — stop looking at me like that; they get cold! — I’m more than a little envious of the Guardians of the Galaxy fan who had not only the skill but the gumption to create these tiny dog-sized Groot and Rocket Raccoon outfits.
They’re even endorsed by director James Gunn, who posted the photos on Facebook: “This photo just may be the peak of my existence.”
