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.
We cannot wait to see what director Adam Wingard (You’re Next) does with his adaptation of the manga series Death Note. But while we wait, let’s check out a truly awesome bit of cosplay!
The central character of Death Note is of course Ryuk, and cosplayer Grellish so impressively turned himself into the Shinigami that we just had to share. Photographed by Keyaroscuro, the full body costume makes a pretty good case for the character being practically brought to the screen, though we assume he’ll be entirely computer-generated in Wingard’s film.
Willem Dafoe is voicing the character in the live-action adaptation.
But enough yapping. Check out the badass cosplay below!
In Death Note…
A student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone begins a crusade against evil in order to rule the world as a benevolent human god. Then a deadly game of cat and mouse begins when a reclusive detective begins to track down the young man, attempting to end his reign of terror once and for all.

It’s addictive and full of thrills. And, if we go by first half of the episodes that have been aired so far, it definitely looks like the best anime of 2016 till now. From zombie action to solid characters, to the steampunk appeal of it all, Kabaneri universe packs in all the punch, plus gore and drama into one hell of a plot. It’s all you can ask for in terms of high-octane action. But, what is it that makes “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress” so great? Hmm, let’s see….

Attack of the Titans is tentatively coming back with its second season this year. But, little did we expect it to face tough competition from another anime that is being brought by its very makers! Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is the unexpectedly popular anime this season and it’s ready to take on its predecessor. However, even with all the goodness that Kabaneri brings to the table there are similarities between the two series that goes beyond just having the same team working behind the scenes. The two worlds are eerily similar if you give it a closer look. So does Kabaneri gain all its strengths from mimicking all the things done right in the Attack of the Titans? Well, yes AND no!
