A cosplay featuring Alice, (age 8) as Margot Tenenbaum and introducing her sweet boyfriend, London as Richie Tenenbaum by Kelly Is Nice Photography.

Alice: “I wish London was my brother.”

Mom: “If he was your brother then he couldn’t be your boyfriend.”

Alice: “I’m adopted.”

Alice especially loved this cosplay. Mostly, because it meant that she got to spend time with London but also because she got to wear a fur coat and play with fake cigarettes. She liked the subtle humor of the movie and had a lot of fun getting into character. I wish we had some behind the scenes video of the two of them together. There was a lot of giggling going on. Oh, and that hand holding. I didn’t tell them to do that. They just did… and then I died.

oh my goodness

My cosplay/crafting goal for this year is to start working with resin (primarily small projects like gems, horns, cabochons, etc). Do any of you guys have any tips or pointers for a beginner?

Throwback Thursday: the first time Lauren and I met at NYCC 2010 ♡

Fun Fact: Lauren was my first tumblr-friend-turned-IRL-friend, as well as one of the main reasons why I joined tumblr in the first place :)

avenger-dave asked: Is hitting on women in cosplay strictly prohibited or do you think as long as your respectful and they don't have a boyfriend draped all over them it'cool?

I don’t think that hitting on cosplayers is strictly prohibited, as long as you’re extremely mindful of how you approach women in general, regardless if you’re at a convention or if they have a boyfriend/partner, etc. While cosplay can be a great icebreaker to meet people, it can also make the cosplayer a quick target for creepers for the very same reason, which in turn can make many cosplayers wary of people who are overtly hitting on them. I don’t necessarily have any tips on how to hit on people (aside from ~don’t be creepy~), but I think you should go into any social situation with the mindset of simply meeting people (rather than hitting on them) while being aware of positive and negative social cues/etiquette and body language, which a lot of people completely forget/disregard when it comes to approaching someone in costume.

Just chill, be respectful, and don’t be gross. Always.

Also, here’s a helpful video with some tips on how to avoid being branded a convention creeper :) Hope that helps~!

My heart… !

I used to have the toy version of the Moon Stick when I was eight years old, so I got a bit teary-eyed looking at this new official replica from Bandai

Adam WarRock Brings “Batman ‘66” Flavor To Hip Hop in “B.S.F.X.”

By Joe Hughes

Your favorite nerdcore rapper is at it again. Adam WarRock, a.k.a. Eugene Ahn, is putting his deft blend of lyrical skill and comic knowledge into a brand new album, titled The Middle Of Nowhere. We’ve written in the past about the connections between hip hop and comics, and Adam WarRock is at the forefront of the next wave of emcees to hone their craft while inspired by the comics and characters they love. Simply put, WarRock is dope, and he’s just debuted the video for his first single off the album, titled “B.S.F.X.” (Batman Sound Effects).

You can check out the video, featuring WarRock flanked by ComicsAlliance’s own superhero sartorialist Betty Felon and fellow cosplayer AK Wood, on ComicsAlliance!

Holy rap game, Batman.

they only want you when you’re seventeen

In ten days, I will be ten years older than I was when I started cosplaying.

I just realized that that was the first and only time I’ve ever cosplayed a character that was the same age as me.
