Bit of… Fanart (I guess?) for the very cool Ilovecomicstoo (GO FOLLOW HER BLOG. RIGHT NOW. IS GOOD STUFF.) who mentioned she loves Nagas and Werewolves. So I made her a naga… With patterns based on a very special species of snake: the Wolf Snake. Eh? EHHH??… Well it amused me.
Ps- Her outfit is based on 3 characters she enjoys. Brownie points if you can recognize who they are!

My new custom Captain Marvel figure by @ilikecomicstoo just arrived today and it already earns a prime spot right smack in the centre of my toy collection.

Thank you so much, Marlene!

Batman vs. Superman: Let’s Do This – ilikecomicstoo

marlene:

We can still make up for the lack of psychic marine creatures in the Watchmen movie, Snyder.

We briefly discussed potential villains in the Huffington Post Live segment, but I think it’s safe to assume that Lex Luthor will play a prominent role. I’m doubtful that The Dark Knight Returns inspiration mentioned at SDCC will extend to include the leader of the Mutants and all his glorious body adornments, or Bruno and her… very offensive body adornments. Joker, as chic and frightening as he is in TDKR, likely won’t be featured in the movies again for a while. Secretly, my fingers are still crossed for the day we say Starro take the silver screen because, I mean, how hilarious would that be? [Read more…]

Character: Blue Beetle III (genderbent version) from DC Comics
Debut:
San Diego Comic-Con 2013
Cosplayer & Designer:
Marlene (“ilikecomicstoo”)
Costume Construction: Stephanie Elise
Scarab/Functional Backpack Construction:
Elegy Clothing
Photos:
ASPhotography, Fremen9 & SmartyCartoons

This costume was featured on… FOX 5, ComicsAlliance, The Mary Sue, the Heroes of Cosplay GetGlue page, and the Cosplayer at SDCC 2013 book (page 117). Woo-hoo!

Woah, my first “real” cosplay! While I’ve definitely dressed up as various characters in the past, this was my first time designing a costume and having it custom made. It was a real blast and huge learning experience! The Jaime Reyes version of Blue Beetle is one of my favorite characters. Not only does he follow in the footsteps of Ted Kord (probably one of the funniest and most relate-able members of the Justice League ever, R.I.P.), but he’s also one of the few Latino characters in mainstream comics today. An excuse to talk in my second language at a con? Yes, please!

I took inspiration from Jaime’s canon little sister, Milagro Reyes, for this design— hence the pigtails. What if Milagro, not Jaime, had come across the scarab and bonded with it? I like to think it would look something like this.

Huge thanks to everyone who made this cosplay possible, and look out for the upgraded version at NYCC 2013!

NYCC posted this video yesterday and I particularly dug the design on the Rule 63 Jaime Reyes, cosplayed by ilikecomicstoo, so I of course my immediate compulsion was to draw it.

Askfkglsj… Thank you so much! &lt;3
