Restored Faith in Cosplayers of the Day: Batman & Captain America Rescued a Cat from a Burning Building
Who said super heroes aren’t real? John Buckland and Troy Marcum were hosting a safety event at an American Legion post in West Virginia dressed as Batman and Captain America, when a fire suddenly broke out in a town house nearby. Though the homeowners were away on vacation, former firefighter Buckland bravely ran inside after seeing a cat trapped inside, rescued the animal and gave it a mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Now that’s some serious cosplay professionalism right there, folks.
Over the past several years, I’ve always looked to my friend Julie for fashion inspiration, as she’s always had a sharp eye for putting together creative ensembles across a variety of styles; however, she’s really upped the ante with her recent stylish takes on various comic characters. After a reported “9 hours of shopping for supplies and 8 hours and 40 minutes of sewing and crafting,” she completely floored me with her latest Magneto ensemble. I especially love how she coordinated the look with a simple purple bodycon skirt, and I can’t get over those impeccable cage boots. Knowing Julie’s attention to detail, I think that I can safely assume that she topped off her look by installing tiny magnets in her purple gloves.
I can’t wait to see what other costumes and comic-inspired ensembles that Julie has in store for 2012! ♥
A little over a year ago I drew this picture of rule63!Sherlock-and-John (also on tumblr):
and today I got an LJ comment notification from shizayats saying that she and her friend had recognized themselves in the drawing and decided to cosplay it. LOOK AT THIS, I JUST. CAN’T STOP FLAILING, I’M SO UTTERLY DELIGHTED.
