Perfect Mary Jane Spider-Man Cosplay

Here’s some remarkable Mary Jane cosplay by model Stacey Rebecca. She’s wearing her Spider-Man shirt and looking out the window at the love of her life. Awww…

As a stand alone photo, this is nice and cute, indeed… but what’s really amazing is when you compare it side by side to the Spider-Man cover, issue #601. It’s a nearly perfect copy. A fun cosplay, and very impressive!

Performance Art Procession in Amsterdam

Take a look at this fascinating and rather trippy costume procession in Spiegelkwartier, Amsterdam. Performance art troupe Nepco slowly walks down the street while wearing really bizarre costumes. They call it their “moving art procession.” This footage was recorded at the 2011 Puike Pruiken parade.

Very interesting! I can’t say I’ve seen anything quite like this.

Nepco Amsterdam, company of the uncertainty, plant of the doubt. A cloud of emotion, art, music and theater. Intuitively searching for small miracles and magic moments they share their wonderful world with the public.

Superhero Kitties Show Off their Costumes

Cute kitties Cooper and Pancake dress up as superheroes! How adorable. I wonder where they got the costumes?

If they make a Justice League movie starring all cats, I think I’d be just fine with that. 🙂

As feline fans of the cape crusaders, Cooper and Pancake have thought about becoming superhero symbols themselves last Halloween. Surely, they could use their superpower of utter cuteness to fight crime. It’s just too bad that they couldn’t find magical glasses or masks to conceal their true identities. So they decided to hang up their capes, sit back and enjoy the true Dark Knight rise along with the up and coming Man of Steel.

Super Dad and Son have Spider-Man Costume Fun

This costume video is amazing! A dad and son both dress up as Spider-Man and go to the trampoline park. That kid is having so much fun, wow. What a fantastic father. Inspired by the movie Big Daddy, he uses costumes to motivate his son to behave properly and do his chores — and have fun at the same time. Now that’s how you do it.

There’s a scene in an Adam Sandler’s movie, “Big Daddy,” where Adam dresses up as Scuba Steve, an action-hero, in order to creatively make the boy he’s caring for do things. Ever since I watched that scene, I’ve wanted to do the same as a father. I’m now a father and can happily do it :)

 On July 21, 2012, I surprised my 3 year old son, Oliver, as Spider-Man in his room. We played with his toys and jumped around. I also made him the promise of going to a trampoline park if he behaved well. On July 25, 2012, I followed through on my promise and took Oliver to the trampoline park as Spider-Man. Just like in the movie Big Daddy, I’m using the disguise of a super-hero to get him to do things and make him happy at the same time. I highly recommend parents to do this.

A Most Unhappy Dog Wearing a Costume

Awww, just look at this Pug. He’s so unhappy! Wow, his expression is almost human. Definitely planning revenge, you can tell.

So what costume is this? A fly? Ladybug? Some kind of bug, but it’s hard to tell. I hope he got a dog biscuit for his troubles. 🙂
