Cosplay From Comic Con Russia

Seeing a music video like this just reminds me that all over the world there are people that just love the geek/nerd culture. This music video created by Mr.TVCow was shot a the Comic Con Russian 2015. Yes there are many such videos around the net. This interesting to me for the simple fact that is you were not informed that is was from Russia you would have no idea.  Geeks/nerds are all the same no matter where from. So check out some great work done my these cosplayers.

Arrow, Catching Up, and General-ness…

Hey Poppers,

I couldn’t think of a featured image, I just read what I wrote, the part down there, that you haven’t read yet, unless you skipped ahead, but I bet you didn’t, I trust you. Anyway, that picture of 3PO and R2 in a Tim Burton movie about bad dreams before Jesus’s birthday was the best I could come up with. So good luck, and enjoy, but mostly good luck. The Batman vs Superman trailer!!

Wow, I have been so busy lately I have not been able to blog, but here I am so let’s jump right in. I got Instagram, it’s okay.And I changed my name on twitter to batteryrunheart. Because my heart is literally run by a battery. No joke, I have a pacemaker, it’s one step down from an arc reactor. No big. Also I am now a registered apprentice, becoming a Parts Technician. It’s a three year program, but I have set myself up to have my ticket by next summer. And yes, apprentice like in Star Wars, again no big.

So, also I got my wife rather pregnant, so yeah. We can now move onto four person cosplays. Yes, that is where my mind immediately goes.

Also, Whovians, if you want an idea of how overwhelming it is to find out you will be a dad again, please see the below picture.

Next I got bit by a spider! And I think it may have been radioactive.

And lastly I have been working on my third and last book in the Fantom Fury trilogy. (cause the “tri” in “trilogy” means three, so my third, and therefore…. last….. book) So, there you have it my excuses for not being able to blog. (Please see radio style segway below… Remember I mentioned my books like one second ago?)

book

Yes, I met CAITY LOTZ!!!!! at EEK fest. She was super nice and she is so gorgeous. It was awesome to be face to face with Miss Sara Lance. And yes, that is a copy of my first book signed by her. It was so cool. Also I met someone else ladies and gents, he’s on the Arrow, not a huge part of the show, but certainly notable. (Please refer to picture below.)

stephen

HA! Gotcha!! It’s Stephen Amell! and he’s the main character. Get it? It was a joke when I said that he wasn’t a huge part of the show. Cause he is! Get it? Anyway, yeah I totally met him in a bathroom. Dressed as the Arrow. It was the coolest thing ever. He was really nice and I told him he was a big fan. And at his panel I asked him if he was going to use his island wig to playing Casey Jones. If you don’t know of the island wig on Arrow, it’s worth a quick google search. If you don’t know who Casey Jones is why are you reading this, seriously all the references must be going over your head. Star Wars, and yes I made that Star Wars picture in paint, Arrow,  Doctor Who, Spiderman. I mean if you’ve made it this far and didn’t get at least eighty percent of the references I applaud you, seriously. Nice job dude. And yes I call guys and girls both dude. Just so you know I wasn’t leaving anyone out. Anyway, what was I going to say? Oh yeah, even if you get every reference and you are still reading, thank you. I just go, I literally type whatever is in my head, I’m hungry, and hit publish. And if you are willing to use your precious time reading that, well that, well it just warms my heart. Thanks guys! Anyway, as we all know it has been nerd overload lately. The Batman vs Superman trailer. Oh man! I am so stoked!!!!!! Seriously it has been playing on repeat in my head since I watched it. What else, Suicide Squad, Batman vs Superman, Deadpool, um what else, oh yeah, Batman vs Superman. X Men, Batman vs Superman is worth mentioning, Star Wars is coming up, that Batman vs Superman trailer was really good. Ant-Man will be out soon, maybe they’ll play that Batman vs Superman trailer during the pre-show. I saw Terminator which I loved. The Batman vs Superman trailer. Oh! Arrow started filming. BvS. Flash is gonna be on Season Two. Dawn of Justice. Legends of Tomorrow which looks so cool, and I love that they are using Rory to travel through time. I mean what a cool thing to do, and yes I called him Rory. Because to me that’s who he is. Rory, Amy, Doctor. I guess now it’s Rip, Nebula and Skynet. Sniffle. They grow up so fast!!! Yeah, so it has been an overload, which I can handle. I mean I got that spider bite and I have a one-step-down-from-an-arc-reactor-pacemaker. Sorry for any spoilers. And sorry I mentioned that trailer, (Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice) so many times, it’s just that, how can I put this,

IT’S A FUCKING BATMAN VS SUPERMAN TRAILER!!!!!!!!

Anyway, back to meeting Stephen and Caity, yeah, we’re on a first name basis, no big. They were so awesome and down to earth. No, noses in the air, no one was below them. They were both so nice, and so cool, and you know what? Whoever said don’t meet your heroes can go poop their pants!

Anyway, it’s been a slice, hit me up on IG and twitter, I follow back and I’m not quite as crazy, 140 characters and 1000 words, get it? cause a picture is worth a thousand words, and on Instagram you post pictures. Anyway, I’m allowed to make terrible jokes, I’m a dad. Puns, just for funs.

Bye bye

Oh yeah I couldn’t find a way to fit this in, but it’s so awesome so here:

K seriously bye.

Cons and Tees

Cons and T Shirts

J.W. Coughlan, I write novellas, I am a nerd, here we go:

Cons mean cosplay, full gear for the battlefield if you will.

T-Shirts are our training gear, leading up to the battle, leading up to the next con.

CCCCCCCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

Let’s talk tees first:

Seriously five minutes per day, equals 5 out of 1440 minutes per day, 182500 minutes over a lifetime, that’s 126 days of my life I will spend picking out what T-Shirt I will wear that day. And I have a lot to choose from. Which of all the Harry Potters? Maybe an Avatar shirt, no way TMNT. Actually it’s cold out, I think I’ll wear Gambit, or The Hobbits, I haven’t worn Batman in a few days, oooo Wolverine is clean…ish. No, Spider-Man, I was defending Andrew Garfield yesterday right? Or X-Men, under a Batman hoodie, is that allowed? I know use the Spock hoodie. See how things get. And these are decisions being made BC: before coffee.

T-shirts are a funny business, my partner in crime get me the best tees online. They are always so cool. Especially when they get double shipped. Seriously, I have two Legend of Korra shirts, two Ravenclaw ones, and two of Prince Zuko riding a Charizard.

Basically what I’m saying is if you’re rocking the nerd life, the best way to support those fandoms is with a good ol’ fashioned t-shirt.

Let’s talk cosplay:

I love dressing up, always have, even as a kid I preferred Halloween over any other night. Batman was my specialty. And yes when I grew up I found myself a lady. We have been Gambit and Rogue, Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers, Flynn and Rapunzel. Then we made a little human being, and since then we have cosplayed Han, Leia and an Ewok. Green Arrow, Black Canary and Arsenal. I recently went to Calgary Expo, it was a blast, now I am here, gearing up for eek fest. Can’t Wait.

So in short, be proud of those fandoms, those stories that stick with you forever, cause that my friends, is a beautiful thing.

EW: The Walking Dead Covers

EWCOVER-1269-Carl EWCOVER-1269-Daryl EWCOVER-1269This week at San Diego Comic-Con Entertainment Weekly showed off three different cover versions for the upcoming The Walking Dead season. The three covers show Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon and Carl Grimes. Of all the three covers the one that makes me think is the one of young Carl Grimes. Actor Chandler Riggs face shows that the maturing of young Carl is one person you do not want to fuck with. The world of the Walking Dead has eaten away at any childhood that Carl may have had and produce someone cold and not to be messed with.
