Cosplayer Alisa Norris, aka Alisa Kiss, was alongside her husband Jonathan Nortis, at the white nationalists protest at Charlottesville, VA. When this was discovered, she tried to make light of the incident until it was discovered that there was, in fact, video of her with her husband chanting “Jews will not replace us”. For more information, as well as the video, please check out this article from Bleedingcool.com: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/08/18/supergirl-cosplayer-went-charlottesville-guess-whose-side/
This is a woman who once cosplayed as Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, Lum from the anime Urusei Yatsura, and the gay Japanese character Sailor Neptune from Sailor Moon. Seriously… what the hell happened to her? Was this the way she has always felt, and these cosplays were just ‘ironic?’ Was it when Alisa Farrington met her husband Johnathan Nortis?
Today for people of the many Christian faith is Easter Sunday. On this day, Jesus Christ was apparently resurrected from the dead after dying 3 days prior due to crucifixion. Crucifixion was a terrible fate under the Roman empire for many people. There were two theifs that happened to also be crucified alongside Jesus btw. Their names were Dismas and Gestas, not that that really matters.
Why doesn’t any of that matter? Because Easter is about rabbits hiding candy eggs for children to find, that’s why. Instead of continuing my ongoing struggle to obtain diabetes, I have instead decided to devote this day to going back to work after a week long vacation.
That… and Bunny Girls!
You see, Bunny Girls started out, to my knowledge, in the year 1960 when gentleman’s magazine Playboy created a club where their waitresses all dressed up in the now infamous playboy bunny outfit that was based on their mascot. Their mascot was a rabbit wearing a tuxedo.
IF you are okay with some nudity, I highly recommend the book 50 years of the Playboy Bunny. It has photos of famous bunnies throughout the years, as well as some behind the scenes stuff as well. I would probably classify this as a ‘coffee table book,’ but since there are some topless photos, umm… you really shouldn’t?
This outfit has been pretty popular in anime. Bulma from the original Dragon Ball comes to mind, as well as Lum and most of the immediate cast from Urusei Yatsura in the OAV Inaba The Dream Maker.
Strangely, Ranma Saotome, from Ranma 1/2 also has gotten in on the action despite the fact that he is originally male.
Speaking of anime, there was an anime called Daicon in Japan. Daicon 3 had a little anime opening for it starring a school girl. Daicon 4 featured the same girl all grown up as a bad ass bunny girl. Below is the video from both.
The people that made these animations later went on to be Studio Gainax. Gainax later went on to make the animem FLCL, where they once again had a character become a bunny girl, this time flying on a guitar instead of a sword.
Now, bunny girls are great, but one of the problems you run into is the question: Are bunny girls sexist? Maybe? Women seem to love them though too… so maybe not?
Naoko Takeuchi would often draw her main character Usagi (Bunny) with rabbit ears, and to the left is a picture of her as a Playboy bunny girl… but that isn’t too sexual, right? I mean, it’s from… the… waist… up…
Takeuchi dressed all of the inner senshi as playboy bunny girls. Awesome. Well… at least there isn’t anything more scandalous than…
Well… at least she isn’t dressed up like an angel in underwear with… *sigh* Happy Easter Naoko Takeuchi. *gah*
To close this out early, because I certainly could keep going… for example:
So year… to close it all out, like I’ve already said, Bunny girls are awesome.
I came u[p with this name when I believe I was a Freshman in High School. I never really liked April Fool’s day, and thus decided to do a comic instead of a prank and yeah. I was dumb, and going online by the name SeanSan but ultimately I would use NetSenshi as my handle on Youtube and when at conventions until I made this website.
Yeah, I’m a huge dork… Happy go Fool Yourself day guys!
What is peace and when was the last time The United States was at peace? I had this philosophical question pop into my mind while at work today. When was the last time we as a country were at peace and how long were we there?
The Gulf War ended in February of 1991 and then we helped during the Iraqi Kurdish Civil War in 96. So for like, 5 years or so, The U.S. was not actively in war or supporting someone in war. That’s kind of depressing.
I’ve been alive for 32 years, and counting the cold war which ended in 89, there have only been 5 years of peace for my country.
Death is inevitable, but still sad. It would be terrible to say that this one is more tragic than that one. Wikipedia has a pretty decent list of all the famous people we lost here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016#Deaths
One of that really got me, was the loss of Debbie Reynolds after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away last month. It didn’t phase me at first, as she was 84 when she passed. She wanted to be with Carrie again, and yeah… that’s just heart breaking. While listening to MarzGurl and JoshKnighttheFirst’s Podcast: Behind The Black Rims, I learned that Debbie Reynolds was Charlotte, from Charlotte’s Web. This made my heart sink.
Watch the below clip if you want to feel really sad. Otherwise, just listen to the song that will be linked further below.
Charlotte at the end of the movie explained to Wilbur, nay to children, what death was. It was something that was inevitable. Debbie Reynold’s death is tragic and ironic because it’s almost as if Charlotte’s message was lost on even her… or maybe it’s not ironic at all? Charlotte is okay with her death, and just puts her body down to rest for eternity. Irony or coincidence?
2016 is over, and as much as we would like to think that everything we love is safe and sound and that boogeyman of a year can no longer hurt us… that’s not how reality works. There are no Boogeymen, just life and the inevitable outcomes.
I love you all very much. Be safe, and kind to each other.
