Renaissance/Victorian Crossplay Mash-ups!

This is a collection of the awesome work of Sacha Goldberger who combines models, costumes and photography to create what I think are pretty cool and unique cosplay ideas and art.


Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?

Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.

You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.

It’s also worth noting that these are all said to be legit shots. No photoshop has been used to enhance them, even with the models in the Superman and Princess Leia images, who both look eerily similar to Christopher Reeve and Carrie Fisher.

More of the images can be found at Goldberger’s Facebook page, where you can also find images of the gallery where these pictures were hung on the wall to really make them look authentic.

Crossovers (Mash-ups) for Fun

A recurring post, the following are crossovers or mash-ups where you take two or more disparate things and put them together, hopefully with some humor:

More Awesome Cosplay Pictures

Once again these are some cosplay pictures from my extensive catalog.  Cosplay = costume play.  It can be people dressing up as comic book characters, TV, Movies, pop culture, manga, anime, horror, zombies, or even just their own original costumes.  Remember how much you liked dressing up as a kid for Halloween?  Well, cosplay is like that but for adults.  If you want steampunk cosplay, I show that under a different post called steampunk aircrew.  I also do not post fetish, furries, or other such photos that are about sex and not about the fun of dressing up and playing a persona.  Enjoy!

Robin, The Boy Wonder, Dies…

DC killing off Batman’s ‘Boy Wonder’ Damian Wayne in new comic book

Robin the Boy Wonder, Batman’s aide-de-camp, will be killed battling a brutal enemy in a comic book published Wednesday.

The shocking demise of the Dark Knight’s sidekick will first appear in issue No. 8 of the offshoot title “Batman Incorporated,” but the aftermath of his death will ripple throughout the DC Comics universe, the publisher confirmed exclusively to The Post.


Damian Wayne — the son of Bruce Wayne and the latest hero to assume the mantle of Robin — has a heart-to-heart with fellow superhero Nightwing before his final, and ultimately fatal, battle in the pages of “Batman Incorporated” No. 8, out Wednesday.


“He saves the world. He does his job as Robin,” writer Grant Morrison said. “He dies an absolute hero.”

Robin — a k a Damian Wayne, the 10-year-old son of Bruce Wayne — is slain fighting a hulking assassin who happens to be, in true comic-book form, a “brother” cloned from his genetic material.

And — SPOILER ALERT ! — unlike all the times he has swooped in at the last minute, Batman arrives too late to save his protégé.

A number of heroes have filled the role of Robin over the decades, including the first and best known, Dick Grayson, introduced in 1940.


The latest Robin, however, was the brilliant and caustic Damian, the illegitimate son of billionaire Bruce Wayne and Talia, the beautiful daughter of one of his deadliest enemies, Ra’s al Ghul.

Morrison, one of the industry’s top talents, brings an adult perspective to the grim tale.

Robin’s death, he said, will illustrate how parents lose sight of their kids when they fight.

“It’s all about the family and the family going to hell,” said Morrison, who threw in elements of his own parents’ divorce. “The two adults in the story are both culpable. The kid’s the good guy.”




Morrison, who brought Damian to the forefront in 2006, said he had created a full arc for the character, who grew from a violent, fledgling assassin to a selfless leader.

“What we did was turn this little monster into a superhero,” he said. “He’s a little brat, but he’s a super-brat.”

Damian isn’t the first Robin to die, but he’s the first to die at the height of his popularity with fans.

In 1988, a few years after Grayson moved on, the next Robin — the disliked, surly Jason Todd — was slain by the Joker after an infamous phone poll let fans choose whether the teen should be killed off.

Todd was resurrected in 2005.

So who knows if Damian will stay dead, or if a new Boy (or perhaps Girl) Wonder will take his place.

Noted Morrison: “You can never say never in a comic book . . . Batman will ultimately always have a partner.”

More Crossovers (mash-up)

A crossover or mash-up is to take two or more well known genres or shows, concepts, etc. and put them together.  Sometimes comics, shows or movies have crossovers as well.  Some we can only imagine and enjoy or grown at.  Here are some of those:

More Crossovers – All Van Gogh A Starry Night

Again, crossovers are where you mix two or more things that are not normally together.  For instance, two separate comic book characters or TV series mix characters in an episode.  These are all Vincent Van Gogh crossovers from his famous painting, A Starry Night, one of my favorite paintings ever.
