Awesome Cosplay of the Day: 9/14/14

Oh my internet, in your time in this existence, you have produced many things.  Many…disturbing things, but I always believed you could do better.  I held faith that one day you would create something that would make all of the awfulness worth it.  Today is that day.

Even though Captain America has been turned into a corgi and is being attacked by his dearest friend Bucky Barnes, he still refuses to fight instead relying on the power of cuteness to save the day.  Stay strong Captain!  Don’t give into violence, and please try not to fall asleep.



AMV Roundup! Vampire Hunter D-Phantom of the Opera

I’ve been on a huge Phantom of the Opera kick (well, really a huge musical kick) lately, so I was really excited to find this AMV. I really couldn’t have imagined a better choice for anime either, since Vampire Hunter D really set the bar for gorgeous gothic anime. And let’s be perfectly honest folks, anything NOT gothic would not fit for Phantom. I was thoroughly impressed by this editing too since the song Phantom of the Opera has such emphatic beats. It sets up an expectation that was thankfully delivered.

For some reason the withering roses really stuck out imagewise too. Gorgeous.


AMV Roundup! Trigun and Cowboy Bebop-All That You Can’t Leave Behind

There are some AMVs that just make you stare slackjawed at how skilled they are with editing and how seamlessly they can blend animes together to create a whole new story. This–this is the untold story of Vash the Stampede and Faye Valentine. The two shows had an easily blendable aesthetic and were also huge around the same time, so it’s pretty fitting. On a random side note, I always thought it was hot when Vash got serious, I think partially because of how silly and goofy he was the rest of the time and the other reasons due to badassery.

If you liked Bebop and Trigun, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll dig this.

Duck Hunt

Duck Hunt is a light gun shooter video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game console. The game was first released in North America on October 18, 1985 as a launch game for the NES.

In Duck Hunt, players use the NES Zapper to shoot ducks that appear on the television screen. The ducks appear one or two at a time and the player is given three shots to shoot them down. The player receives points upon shooting each duck. If the player shoots the required number of ducks in a single round, he will advance to the next round; otherwise, he will receive a game over.

The Four Colored Worlds’ Finest

“My name is Hyperion.  I’m an Avenger.  I’m here to help.” – Hyperion

Greetings, all.  This week’s panel comes from a really good Superman story over at Marvel comics in Avengers 34.1.

This issue gives a really good character story for Hyperion, which if you take out the fear the cops show in the beginning, would be a great Superman story.  Which is apt given that Hyperion started out as a straight Superman rip off.  The story finds Hyperion reflecting on his place in the world while searching for a kidnapped boy.  When he confronts the father, there’s a great moment where Hyperion pauses to reflect.

I’m pretty sure Superman has this thought all the time.  But in the meantime, DC should hire Mr. Ewing to write some Superman books.
