The data probably is quiet different from the outcome that conclude by the media . But you also can take a reference . The new adaptation of Stephen King’s It has been a blockbuster success, so it’s not surprising that Lyst is also seeing a rise in searches for shirts with exaggerated, ruffled shoulders, and clownish pom-pom sneakers. And Game of Thrones just finished its season 7 two couple of weeks ago . Others characters are classic for most people .
Australian police shot a man dressed as the Joker and a woman dressed as Harley Quinn late Saturday night after being called to the nightclub Inflation where a costumed sex party was taking place.
While the Harley Quinn cosplayer merely sustained a non-lethal flesh wound in her leg, her partner was rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital where he was initially in critical condition before eventually being stabilized. According to the police, they opened fire on the couple because the man dressed as the Joker allegedly brandished a gun at them. But security for the event said they verified the gun was not real, and witnesses who were attending the “Saints & Sinner Ball” claim the man was not holding it at the time of the shooting.
“Venue staff have stated that the male victim was not holding anything in his hand,” club owner Martha Tsamis said in a Facebook post. “Rather he was in a compromising position with his female partner, which is a normal activity with the nature of this event.”
Lisa Hardeman, the superintendent of Victoria police department’s northwest metro region, stated that the some 40 “Critical Incident Response Team” police officers showed up on the scene after receiving multiple phone calls from other partygoers who’d seen the Joker’s gun and mistaken it for the real thing. However, Tsamis said no guests contacted security with concerns about the weapon.
Photographer Andrew Boyle has been going to the New York Comic Con for years, and has decided to do something with the hundreds of images he’s taken of cosplayers over that time: put them in a very fancy coffee table book.
It’s called Heroes & Villains, and while there are some snippets of text here and there (including interviews and an introduction by, um, me), the bulk of the book is taken up with Boyle’s beautiful portraits.
This isn’t a book full of hastily-snapped shots taken amongst crowds, the kind of stuff you can normally find for free on sites like…this one. It’s a book full of intimate portraits, where the cosplayer is given a chance to shine on the page.
Heroes & Villains is out on September 1 in Australia, September 5 in the UK and September 12 in the US.
The year is ending and we have a list of the most cosplayed characters from animes that aired in 2015. These characters have been cosplayed several times in different conventions and it’s not a surprise if you run in to two or three of them. Needless to say, these cosplayers nailed it. Is your favorite on the list?
