Spider-Man Raps with his Super Friends

Spider-Man goes gangster in this music video parody of All Gold Everything by Trinidad James. And he’s not alone– he has Batman, Captain America, and Mario backing him up. Pretty silly, but I like it. 🙂

Cosplay from Katsucon 2014

Here’s a fantastic look at the wonderful costumes from the recent Katsucon 2014 in National Harbor, MD. It’s a joint production by MLZ Studios and OTL Productions. It’s really professional and well done.

Perhaps best of all, our friend Yaya Han is prominently featured, wearing her amazing Red Queen costume from the game Alice: Madness Returns. Doesn’t she look amazing?

What a great video. Awesome job, Everyone!

I’m super excited to be included in the 1st Katsucon cosplay video by MLZ Studios & OTL Productions! It’s a beautiful nostalgic video combining everything we love about cosplaying at Katsucon! Lots of amazing intricate cosplayers are featured in gorgeous shots by Michael and Andy. It was a joy to work with them!

Young People Swap Clothes with Older Family Members

Photographer Qozop believes that wrinkles aren’t the only way to tell someone’s age… you can tell by their fashion, too.

To demonstrate, he shot a series of photos that show young people swapping clothes with an older family member. A very clever idea! I’ve posted a few photos here, but head over to Qozop’s official site to view them all.

‘And as an Asian society, our cultural beliefs are often reflected in our dressing. Fashion (other than wrinkles) is one of the best tell tales of how old a person is, or what generation they hail from,’ he said.

Dressed Up Dog Pigs Out

Need a smile? This video should help you out. Watch as Fudge the Dog eats a big breakfast, all dressed up in his University of Wisconsin hoodie. This trick is an oldie, but goodie, and it’s hard to keep a straight face.

Thanks to Tical for the tip!

Danbo Robot Costume Figurine

Check out this cute little cardboard robot, made out of an Amazon box. You may be wondering why I would post this on a costume blog.

Behold! It’s not a robot after all, it’s a little action figure wearing a costume! Ha, what a strange idea. You can pick one up from overseas for around $25.

Fans of the Japanese manga Yotsuba&! will have to forgive my ignorance. I had to do some research. This is Danbo, based on a manga about a girl who tricks her friend into thinking she owns an attack robot. When actually it was just a costume made for a school project. Sounds funny!

A girl named Miura Hayasaka, dresses in a robot costume made from cardboard boxes as part of a school project.

Yotsuba discovers her dressed in the costume, so Miura playfully convinces Yotsuba that she is an actual “attack robot,” powered by money inserted into the slot on the chest. Miura names her “robot” Danbo.

The eyes light up, too!

Happy Presidents Day!

I’m not entirely sure what’s going on here. Looks like a little costume party of two. The drum kit suggests that perhaps this is a band, maybe working on a music video? No matter, we get dancing in a Abe Lincoln costume, and that’s the important thing.

Happy Presidents Day!
