A regular post on the blog site, pictures of cosplayers from all around in different sorts of outfits. For more, search for “cosplay” in the search box. For steampunk cosplay, type “steampunk aircrew” in the search box. Enjoy!
This is a recurring post because I have so many friends in the cosplay community, and I too dress up in Steampunk attire, though none too well. Hard to look good as a pudgy middle aged man, but what to do? Anyway, enjoy the creativity below. Again, if you do not know what cosplay is, it is Costume Play, which means anything from dressing up on non-Halloween nights, going to conventions, dressing as your favorite character, or even a subculture lifestyle. It embraces everything from comics, manga, steampunk, sci-fi, video games, even to fetish themes, which I try not to put too much of on here to keep it PG. Enjoy:
Cosplay is short for costume players, people who vary from dressing up on non-Halloween, to those who make cosplay a lifestyle. They tend to be nice, generous, smart, fun-loving and charitable people. Here are random shots of some cosplayers. They dress up as comic book characters, steampunk, anime, manga, movie characters and even original characters of their own. If you have not tried this adult dress up fun, you are missing out.
Don’t worry, I have no spoilers here. I hate when people give away the plot, etc. I just want to say I was VERY happy with the film. Going in, I had my doubts that such an ensemble cast would be manageable. After all, several have had their own movies. Thor, Captain America, two Iron Man movies, several poorly done Hulk movies and the old Hulk TV series, not to mention Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlet Johansen and the lesser know Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner. How many movies have Gwyneth Paltrow as maybe actor number 12 in a movie?
Handling so many celebrity actors and characters I thought would be nigh impossible. However, the director, screenwriter and editors are to be highly commended. Each is well done without any receiving glossing over or one or two stealing the show. The action is pretty much non-stop but each hero gets to reveal their character and stay true to the canon for the fan base. At one point, I was concerned the movie would be part 1 and part 2, like Kill Bill, because the first part takes so long, you wonder just how much more can happen. However, the film apparently lasts for 143 minutes, where your normal film is around 93 minutes. I could have sat there for another 3 hours it was that entertaining.
The Avengers is well worth the money to go see. There are tons of special effects, witticisms that get the crowd to laugh, as well as lots of tension and fun. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and thank the producters for giving us a great 143 minute film instead of an overedited 93 minute film that would have sucked.
ALSO – As with most Marvel films – stay past the credits so you can see the last few minutes of the film as a teaser for what happens next. Half the people at our showing left and missed out on it. Just stay in your seat the extra 5 minutes – trust me.
