Dr. Horrible Cosplay Fun at WonderCon 2012

Here’s a nice little video clip for Dr. Horrible fans. When director/producer RdDrfJames came upon a group of Dr. Horrible cosplayers at WonderCon, he had them recreate famous scenes from the musical. Very cool!

Hopefully this can tide you over until we get that Horrible Sequel. Supposedly, the Whedon crew will start filming more Horribleness this summer!

Possibly the silliest thing I’ve ever filmed…and one of the most awesome things as well. I meet up with a group of Dr. Horrible Cosplayers at WonderCom who were up for helping me recreate some memorable scenes from Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog. This is was totally spontaneous, unscripted and was just a lot of fun.

Wow, these celebrity dog costumes crack me up! That Snooki Dog is sporting some major cleavage, lol.

Egyptian Parody Dance from 1950

This video is a strange one, I admit — but once you start watching it’s rather hypnotic.

British performers Wilson, Keppel and Betty perform a strange Egyptian costume dance in 1950. This is rather unusual, perfect for a Monday morning!

Wilson, Keppel and Betty were a popular British music hall act in the middle decades of the 20th century who capitalised on the trend for Egyptian imagery following the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Their stage act, called the “sand dance”, was a parody of Egyptian postures, combined with references to Arabic costume. The lithe and extremely lanky Wilson and Keppel, who wore long mustaches and make up to emphasize the sharp angularity of the features so as to appear almost identical, would demonstrate their impressive suppleness in adopting wild gestures and dancing in identical “stereo” movements…
