In-depth triple shoot cosplay. (Part 1)

-Cleopatra- A few weeks ago I was invited to a cosplay photoshoot. Now I have been to a few such shoots over the past few years, but this one was something different. For one, we were shooting three cosplay characters at once -most of whom were retiring after the shoot. We also decided that we’d break from the traditional cosplay article, and instead, do an article that focused on the characters, its creation, and the photographers work and skills. So join me over the next three weeks as I chat to Adele (Gothcatgirl’s Cosplay Adventures) about her various cosplays, and Andrew (Bake by AJ) about the skills he uses to pull the shoots off. Why Cleopatra? For some odd reason, […]

Cosplayer of the month: Batman

Today we speak to Batman’s other alter ego, Douw. Tell us a little bit about yourself: I am Douw Kotze, but I prefer to be called either Daiki/Daniella or Dani. I am gender-fluid and I’m a writer, gamer, otaku, photographer and a Cosplayer. My Cosplay name/alias/Persona is Silver Angel C. You can find me here www.facebook.com/SilverAngelC What inspired you to cosplay? Well, it kinda goes back to my early childhood where I loved to dress up as Batman and Superman, running around the house and jumping on and off the couches, wanting to be the heroes I’ve grown up with. Later in my life I saw some footage of people dressing up as heroes and characters from so many different […]

Star wars videos: episode 2

Not so long ago, in basements, dorm rooms and anywhere with a decent pc, fans were slaving away making fan videos….. Guardians of the galaxy star wars trailer Mashup Alex luthor’s Mashup videos are always on point and pretty well done to say the least. This is no exception. When Guardians of the Galaxy was released it was hailed by some as the next Star wars, but we all know that Star wars remains the dominant sci-fi epic. So to put these two in one epic trailer makes for some entertaining viewing. Mad max/Star wars Mashup The popularity of the latest instalment in the mad max movies was sure to lead to this. Watch as furiosa brandishes a lightsaber and […]

Cosplayer of the month: Saeko Busujima

Today we speak to local cosplayer, Saiyuki. Tell us a little bit about yourself: My name is Kayleigh, although most people in the cosplay community know me as Saiyuki or Saiyuu.

Wookiee: Beard of the month

At last we have arrived in December. A years worth of cosplayers have com and gone. Some amazing. Some mediocre. But none of them Wookiee… until now! To start off, please can you just tell us a bit about yourself? (Who are you? Where do you come from? What are you made of?) Long ago, a wise old sage predicted the coming of a mysterious being -a mighty person born from pure fabulousness, destined to be the saviour of mankind. I am probably not this being. What inspired you to get into Big and Beardy cosplaying? Not much really. I’m big and hairy and I like dressing up but don’t have time or money to be fancy about it. So […]

Neverending Downloads

As many of you know, I recently purchased Fallout 4. It is a fantastic game. I absolutely adore it. But! There was one minor issue that got under my skin -the download. Granted it is the main part of modern gaming culture. But having to wait hour upon hour before you can enjoy your purchase is just heartbreaking. In fact, so much of our time is spent downloading the latest patch, fix, and update that we, particularly in developing nations, get far less time than we’d like to using our products. Hell, most of us usually get a few hours in on a Sunday afternoon unless there’s a large update that needs to happen first. Work it out. I have […]

Wookiee Wednesday Westwood Wonderment

 

 Hey there kids, come sit round and listen to an old man grumble about the good old days of gaming. You see back before the time of you younglings, there was more to gaming than Call of Duty, DOTA, and World of Warcraft (and their numerous clones that you are now telling me are better for an infinite number of pointless reasons, that are meaningless to anyone but you). One of the absolute highlights of this golden (well I suppose Silver, Gold probably belongs to the NES) age of gaming was Westwood Studios, who until EA sent in their hordes of salesmen to ruin all their franchises, was one of the pinnacles of the industry. Founded in October 1985 (meaning […]

I used to dance in the streets when I was 3 and people would give me money! I get daily inspired by amazing acting I […]
