Happy MerKate Monday!

Today is a very special MerMonday, as I went into the ocean’s pool’s depths for this exclusive (to everyone who attended last weekend’s Delta H Con) appearance by a genuine Merperson!

Okay, so as the tile image shows, all I did was dip a foot in the water with her, which was SUPER SCARY considering that, as we all know, most if not all nautical deaths are due to mermaids.

As we all know, eating a mermaid’s flesh can make one immortal. Somehow, possibly due to all of the others in her audience, I resisted the urge to devour the tail piece she handed us.

Seeing Mermaid Kate was a true highlight of the convention for me, and I really do hope  MerKate, also known in the cosplay community as Lady Kate Cosplay,comes back next year. Also, if you were curious what she looks like when she is not a mermaid… well, here you go.

I snapped this photo right before the VIP mixer. Her look of surprise tells me that she was clearly onto the fact that I still sought immortality. Alas, another day.

For more pictures that I took of her at Delta H, visit my album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/netsenshi/sets/72157672709766196

Lady Boi

IMG_20160120_174828477I get a type of sick satisfaction from The Yellow Mighty Morphin Power Rangers that a lot of people wont understand. Let me explain, The original Japanese team only had one female character, The Pink Ranger. Yellow one was the male character Boi. Yes, they gender bent a boy character named Boi! It’s hilarious, right?

I love the fact that this stylized toy version from the movie is very much a woman. It should be noted that Trini, the original Yellow Power Ranger, was swapped out for Aiesha by the time the first MMPR movie had come out, and that the toy to the left is from that.

I just love this geeky fact. I’m sorry! I was going through some pictures on my phone and I just had to share!

Rogue

rogue1Happy Waifu Wednesday everyone! To celebrate, I’m dedicating today into creepishly celebrating the southern Belle of an X-Man known as Rogue! As beautiful as she is tragic, I’ve always loved this character. She has gone through a lot of different costumes over the years, as well as power sets, but I will always remember her as she was portrayed in the 90’s Fox Kids cartoon show. Green and yellow spandex with a coat and Ms. Marvel’s power set, minus Carol Danvers’ hand lasers because… well… X-men writers forgot about them? Anyways, here is a look at a few of her other costumes below!

Moody Monday

31292_10150161006530526_710545525_12055677_4259221_nIn 2010 I took a trip to Japan with three friends and one of their co-workers. That year was one of the most interesting times in my life for different reasons.

I keep coming back to the same thoughts though, year after year.

Will I Ever Go Back?

Who Will I Go Back With?

A few years prior to my Japan trip, I took a solo vacation to Disney World that was well… terribly thought out. I just opened the door and started walking towards the airport. The trip was terrible, and ended earlier than it should have, but thankfully did because I ended up with a Kidney stone that next day.

japancastWhy I bring that up, is because the who you go with part is more important than if you go. It’s something that I think a lot of people over look. It’s also why I had never gone to Japan before 2010, as well as why I can’t really go now.

It was such an amazing moment in time that allowed for that trip to happen, you know? The older I get, the less likely it will ever happen again, as friends get married, have kids, and buy houses. Maybe I will one day get a significant other who will one day want to go to Japan, and that will be my way back to the land of the rising sun, but what are the chances of that happening? Below are some collages that I made a long time ago about this trip… so it’s sort of a gallery of galleries? I dunno. Enjoy?

Maybe I’ll go back before the 2020 Olympics ruin the country with their influx of us gaijin tourists?

Thoughtlessly Geeky

Thoughtlessly Geeky

Harley1Harley Quinn is sexy, and sells a lot of merchandise. These facts are not subtle at all in 2016. At my new/local Think Geek, they have a standee of Harley Quinn next to some merchandise of the character. While this might be partially due to the ‘success’ of the new Suicide movie, I do want to point out that this is not that incarnation of the character. This is in fact the one that started in Batman Arkham City.

When I first saw this display, I had to make sure that it wasn’t a real doll that was dresed in her clothing that might be sold there or at Hot Topic. Why would I have to do that? Well… because she sort looks like one at certain angles!

My feelings towards Harley are, weird. I hate her over sexualization since Batman The Animated series, however I do love how far the characters come since then in the sense that she is in a better mental state since then. I do have one gripe about her costumes, which this is much more of one than the Suicide Squad incarnation. Please, please, please! Stop putting this acrobatic character in corsets! It really is unrealistic and mean!
