Father takes Son to his First Comic Con

What’s better than going to your first comic convention? Going with your dad, dressed like this! Fun times ahead. This great photo was posted by uncle opfawcett on Reddit.

Not sure which Con they’re going to, but I’m going to guess it’s somewhere in the UK.

My brother took his son to his first Comic Con yesterday. This is my favourite pic of them.

Student Dresses Up has his Mother to Retrieve Phone

Ha, this is way too funny. A student named Schneider got his phone taken away at school. So he dressed up as his mother, and went into the school office to try and get it back. Hilarious! Great costume, seriously.

Unfortunately, his plan didn’t work. But he certainly gets an A for effort.

Amazing Homemade ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Armor

I have a special post for you today, just in time for a great 3-day weekend. Peter Kokis has just unveiled his latest costume. It’s the amazing suit Tom Cruise wears in Edge of Tomorrow. What a mind blowing costume!

What’s even more amazing, is that Peter makes all of his robotic costumes out of ordinary objects. This is truly a work of art. And if you’re in the New York area, you should contact Peter… he’s available for parties and events.

There’s a deluge of marketing now for the upcoming film ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, so it’s time to forward you images of my latest: Brooklyn Exo Soldier . He’s based on the exo suits worn by the troopers in the new Tom Cruise film, and as soon as I saw the trailer this past winter I knew I was building one and started acquiring parts days later. I didn’t see much of the suits in the first trailer, so he’s based 80% on the movie and 20% from my experience in the Army: appearing as a low-tech, sturdy, mass-produced weaponized exoskeleton that our troops may very well be wearing in a decade. The exoskeleton took 300 hours to build and weighs 130 lbs. (same as the movie actors’ suits). His weapons are heavy and over-sized for effect. As with my robots, he’s made from ordinary & readily available stuff from local household, hardware, sporting goods, outdoor & discount stores…nothing special. Seven different shades of green, I layered him: green (uniform) – black (soft body armor & padding) – then dark green (for his steel exoskeletal framework). I hope the film does well…Hoo-Rah!

Homemade Remake of Dark Knight Truck Scene

CineFix is at it again! I sure love their homemade movie remakes. This time, they’ve created the scene where Joker flips a semi truck in The Dark Knight. It’s a clever use of action figures with some help from live action costumes. Brilliant work!

Here’s the side-by-side comparison, along with a behind-the-scenes video.

Touching Superhero Funeral for 5-Year-Old Boy

Here’s a very sad, touching costume story. 5-year-old Brayden Denton recently lost his battle with cancer. Instead of a traditional funeral, the family held a superhero-themed funeral because Brayden loved superheroes so much. The pallbearers dressed up as his favorite superheroes, including his uncle, who dressed in a Thor costume.

You can read the full story on So touching. What a unique use of costumes, it’s such a great way to honor that brave young boy.

It may have been an unconventional funeral, but Denton said that’s what Brayden would have wanted. Cory said even if Bradyen is not with him in the flesh, he will always be his number one movie buddy.

Adorable Vader Meets Lego R2-D2

This adorable little Darth Vader meets R2-D2 at Emerald City Comicon 2014. I love how R2-D2 gets scared when she puts on her Vader mask, too funny.

Amazingly, this R2 droid is made out of Legos! Well, technically, this isn’t R2-D2, it’s L3-G0, the world’s first full size functional R2 unit. L3-G0 has his own blog, where you can learn more.

This was at Emerald City Comicon 2014. Lily apparently likes Artoo a lot and chatted with him quite a bit. L3-G0 was a bit afraid of her costume at first, so she took off her mask and gave him a hug. So cute we had to make a video.
