I definitely laughed out loud when I saw these clever costumes. As you may have heard, last weekend at Comic-Con a man got arrested for stabbing someone with a pen. Apparently, they were fighting over seats or something, and the victim got scratched near his eye.
Soon, the story became wildly exaggerated, and rumors spread that the guy had his eye poked out, and there was blood everywhere, etc. I have to laugh and admire the quick thinking of these cosplayers for putting together these costumes so quickly.
I don’t mean to laugh at the incident. Violence at cons cannot be tolerated. The stabber did get arrested and charged with assault with a lethal weapon — it does sound serious.
“Two friends had an argument and one guy ended up going to the hospital with a scratch near his eye.”
One of the men reportedly struck the other man near the eye with a pen. The man who suffered the cut near his eye reportedly asked to be examined at the hospital as a precaution.
Rumors circulating the internet of a fan stabbing another attendee in the eye over coveted seats, and of a victim clad in a ” Harry Potter T-shirt soaked in blood,” are inaccurate, according to authorities.
Here’s a first look at Rainn Wilson in costume as the Crimson Bolt! He stars in the upcoming superhero comedy Super, which is written and directed by the talented James Gunn. LOL, his costume sure is awful, isn’t it?
The movie is about a regular guy who creates a superhero identity, and should be quite funny. James Gunn recently announced at Comic-Con that the film is still looking for a distributer. So, we’ll probably see it in theaters early next year, or it might go straight to DVD.
Rainn Wilson is best known for playing Dwight Schrute on the TV show, The Office. I think he’ll be great as a funny superhero!
As you can see, Courtney wields a mean chainsaw! Great work!
This costume was such a pain, not because the clothing itself poses any kind of challenge but because it’s the accesories that make it. I tried so hard to get a movie quality chainsaw hand, but in the end I just made one out of milk cartons, a sheet of plastic, PVC pipe and some cardboard. The gun is made from an old leg off of a piece of furniture. Origins of which are unknown.
Very little makeup in these photos, just some mascara and spot cover. For the scars I used liquid latex and some games workshop inks, red and brown to be precise.
