BeCos Cosplay: u/tristamgreen

(Phone not included in cosplay.)

Recognize this villain? Think little clock hands on the glasses and a penchant for criminal revenge when people are late. It’s Temple Fugate a.k.a. Clock King from Batman: The Animated Series! (Not to be confused with the comic book Clock King William Tockman.)

“Time is of the essence.”

Even though tristamgreen’s suit is black instead of brown, I give him three cheers for the emulation. For some reason I remember this character rather clearly. Maybe the voice (by Alan Rachins)? (I hear voices when nostalgia kicks in. Anyone else?) Here’s the DC Wiki page about Fugate if your memory needs jogging. Oh, and those wicked glasses are right here on Amazon! Wish he had the guy’s clock-hand sword as well. I’d imagine it wouldn’t be too difficult to make.

Mayor Hill’s about to be bisected by giant clock hands. At least, that’s how I understood it as a child.

I have good memories of Saturday morning cartoons with The Animated Series. Suffice it to say, you may be seeing more cosplays from this series when I find them.

The Comic Book That Started It All (For Me)

Despite my seething desire to one day walk those hallowed halls of Comic-Con, I have to confess that I’ve never actually read a comic book. At least, not one that I can remember, not one that made any kind of impact on me. Sure, growing up, I’d read the “funnies”–comic strips like FoxTrot, or Garfield–but nothing concerning radioactive spiders or international leagues of justice. That particular action-hero material was what appeared on television, in the form of shows like Batman: The Animated Series, or X-Men: Evolution.

It just never occurred to my younger self to pick up a comic book, when a moving, animated, and voiced version was just a remote control button away. Until now. Continue reading The Comic Book That Started It All (For Me)

BeCos Cosplay: behindinfinity

Occasionally, I run across a picture I believe to be Photoshop’d. There’s a double-take that occurs with a sound like a whip-snap (or a neck-crack) and suddenly my eyes are wide, my jaw dropped, and something quite like disgustenvyawe boils in my chest. (You know the feeling.)

Baymax: It is okay to cry. Crying is a natural response to pain.

Philippine-born-and-bred Jin (a.k.a. behindinfinity) has always done this to me, ever since I first discovered his Bleach cosplays on Deviantart. He’s been bedazzling folks on there for the past nine years, and has covered a truly impressive range of fandoms with spectacular skill. It’s no wonder he gets invited to cons for panels and the like. He and his friends’ dedication to cosplay and photography make me smile so much.  Continue reading BeCos Cosplay: behindinfinity

BeCos Cosplay: Abyssinier

German college student Abyssinier (Aby) has been a female cosplayer and propmaker since 2004, and I first saw her as a rather convincing (though obviously more effeminate) King Thranduil, from The Hobbit.

See? Thranduil’s snooty attitude to a tee. Photo credit: Lilif Ilane Artwork

She also made costumes for Sephiroth (Final Fantasy), Loki (Thor), Ymir (Attack on Titan), and many others. See her gallery either on Deviantart or Facebook. I’d recommend the latter, however, since it features more recent work, including tutorials, thermoplastic casting, molds, and her articles for German cosplay magazine Cohaku (English editions in the works!)

BeCos Cosplay: Kelan Ord

Cosplay, props, artwork.

Kelan Ord (real name Guillaume Fortin) is a male cosplayer and props extraordinaire from Quebec, Canada who also happens to do fantastic graphic design. Oh, and he collects lightsabers (yea, real ones, yep–in all honesty, they might as well be real; they look so cool).

BeCos Cosplay

I’m actually writing this post with a house full of the infirm, myself included. Don’t ask for details; they are not pretty. However, I’m hoping that by day’s end, life will be much more kind.

This week’s Tuesday Threads features a cosplayer by the name of Stella Chuu from California. She makes all her costumes, props, weapons, etc. (Can we say wow?) and has appeared at a couple cosplay conventions. Check her out on her Facebook page or her dedicated Chubear Cosplay page. I believe her Lich Queen Elsa also won a cosplay award. Impressive, no? However, that was back in November.

Tuesday Threads

Good afternoon, Villains! Christine here, up to no good again, but this time, in the honor of procrastination. Instead of typing out my much, much, horribly belated Interstellar review (it IS finished, just not typed), I’m brainstorming ideas for new weekly posts on alwayssometimesvillains.

Our fearless leader Philip and I have discussed a cosplay highlight in the past, but just never got around to it. Wells, here’s a spot for it. Every Tuesday, you can expect a post regarding any manner of apparel, be it cosplay or merchandise or DIY, as long as it pertains to what we Villains love in TV, Movies, Music, Games, and Books.

Because why not wear a bit of free advertising for our favorite shows? And dressing up as badass characters just takes the cake. Me love cosplay 365 days of the year! BAM.

So, to start off, you lucky bastards get a triple feature. One of each in the areas I mentioned above. (After this week, it’ll just be one because avarice should be reserved for worthwhile things, ya loonies.) Continue reading Tuesday Threads
