Elisa Maza from Gargoyles was an amazing character. She was voiced by Salli Richardson who would later star in the show Eureka. Anyways, Elisa was a human detective on the show, and the liaison of the Gargoyles group to the 20th century as well as humans in general. Without her, humans are just monsters that manipulate you like David Xanatos, and it would be very easy to have them turn against humanity without her inclusion.
The character had such an impact on me, that one of my commissions from ClueDog, also known as Smooch among certain groups, was Gargoyle Elisa Maza, which can be seen to the left.
Elisa Maza DID become a Gargoyle in one episode, thanks to the trickster Puck, in the season 2 episode ‘The Mirror.’ Massive spoiler there, but thought it was required for context.
The episode is important due to it cementing the idea that Goliath and Elisa are attracted to each other, but they also should not be, since they are such differentcreatures.
ClueDog did a great job, and I enjoy the piece. Maybe next time I will commission a piece featuring human Demona, which yeah… it is so weird that I find the human more attractive as a gargoyle, and the gargoyle more attractive as a human… but I do.
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?
Oh Sheva. Maybe it is because I just recently purchased Resident Evil 5 for the 3rd time, but I’ve decided to make this Waifu Wednesday’s… umm… waifu, to be Sheva.
Unlike say… Lara Croft, Sheva actually hasn’t graced many video game covers , and that is a shame. She’s awesome. attractive, loyal, etc. I was also sort of pissed that Sheva and Josh were not one of the side stories in RE6.
Some people have, and will, continue to complain about Sheva’s ‘tribal outfit’ that you can unlock and dress her in. Well.. I’m still more upset about her clubbing outfit. Too much gold, and it just looks sort of bad on her.
Sheva’s tribal outfit is on par with a lot of Capcom’s alternate outfits in this series, including RE6’s sexy school girl outfit for Sherry Birkins… who, last time we saw her… was literally a school girl.
Anyways, I will hopefully make some posts before next Wednesday, but in case I don’t… stay classy everyone.
Sort of, but not really? Apparently this year there will be a direct to DVD movie called Batman and Harley Quinn. In it, they have cast Big Bang Theory actress Melissa Rauch as Harley!
I was first weird about Harley’s voice in the video for it, as the animation is mostly in the style of Batman The Animated Series’ WB run, and the voice actors are the ones used from that TV show as well, at least for Batman and Nightwing. While I am a huge Arleen Sorkin fan, part of me is happy that the role for this movie went to such a talented actress as Rauch. I’m also surprised that it did not go to any of the other voice actresses to voice her in the past such as Tara Strong or Jenny Slate.
You know what? This Waifu Wednesday is not HQ at all, but Bernadette from Big Bang Theory.
I have often mentioned my love of Capcomfightinggames, especiallyDarkstalkers. One of the moves that I really love, is The Midnight Bliss, but my second favorite move is Lilith’s Gloomy Puppet Show. In this move she… well… just look at it? She turns into a bunny girl and forces characters to be her puppet! It’s amazing! At the 1:03 mark of this video from youtube channel Darkstalkers shows it off.
The reason that I show this is… guess why? Bunny Girl? Maybe… THE FACT THAT IT IS STILL EASTER MONDAY IN CANADA?! Definitely. It’s hard to find this toy of Lilith, and I’m not sure if there has been one or two versions of it, as this other picture of it looks to have a different face.
This might just be taken from a different angle and thus looks different. Now, Lilith and Morrigan have different moves outside of the ones that are similar but still not the same. Morrigan Aensland, who is more… ahem… mature appearing, has never been a bunny girl. This is important to note as Lilith, canonically to Darkstalkers, doesn’t exist outside of being a part of Morrigan. If they ever make a real Darkstalkers sequel, will Morrigan don the bunny girl outfit in order to do The Gloomy Puppet Show. Deviant artist jaksonstoker has done a Morrigan version of the sprites below:
Cosplayer feytacos has cosplayed as this version of Lilith before,and I definitely suggest taking a look.
Another awesome one is Olivias-Atelier‘s cosplay of The Gloomy Puppet Show.
I really hope that Capcom does something with both the character Lilith as well as the game universe that is Darkstalkers. Lilith is apparently playing a big role in Udon’s Street Fighter vs. Darkstalkers comic line, so here is hoping that maybe we will see Udon’s take on her being a bunny girl sometime in the near future?
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.
