Nerd Rage - Comic Book Artist, Tony Harris Blasts Cosplay Girls - Lame

Honestly speaking, I don't know who Tony Harris is. Not until this HUGE rant appeared on his Face Book page which has been making the rounds in the geek scene.

Tony Harris is apparently one of the artists who worked on Ex Machina, Star Man, JSA graphic novels to name a few.

"I cant remember if Ive said this before, but Im gonna say it anyway. I dont give a crap.I appreciate a pretty Gal as much as the next Hetero Male. Sometimes I even go in for some racy type stuff ( keeping the comments PG for my Ladies sake) but dammit, dammit, dammit I am so sick and tired of the whole COSPLAY-Chiks. I know a few who are actually pretty cool-and BIG Shocker, love and read Comics.So as in all things, they are the exception to the rule. Heres the statement I wanna make, based on THE RULE: “Hey! Quasi-Pretty-NOT-Hot-Girl, you are more pathetic than the REAL Nerds, who YOU secretly think are REALLY PATHETIC. But we are onto you. Some of us are aware that you are ever so average on an everyday basis. But you have a couple of things going your way. You are willing to become almost completely Naked in public, and yer either skinny( Well, some or most of you, THINK you are ) or you have Big Boobies. Notice I didnt say GREAT Boobies? You are what I refer to as “CON-HOT”. Well not by my estimation, but according to a LOT of average Comic Book Fans who either RARELY speak to, or NEVER speak to girls. Some Virgins, ALL unconfident when it comes to girls, and the ONE thing they all have in common? The are being preyed on by YOU. You have this really awful need for attention, for people to tell you your pretty, or Hot, and the thought of guys pleasuring themselves to the memory of you hanging on them with your glossy open lips, promising them the Moon and the Stars of pleasure, just makes your head vibrate. After many years of watching this shit go down every 3 seconds around or in front of my booth or table at ANY given Con in the country, I put this together. Well not just me. We are LEGION. And here it is, THE REASON WHY ALL THAT, sickens us: BECAUSE YOU DONT KNOW SHIT ABOUT COMICS, BEYOND WHATEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH YOU DID TO GET REF ON THE MOST MAINSTREAM CHARACTER WITH THE MOST REVEALING COSTUME EVER. And also, if ANY of these guys that you hang on tried to talk to you out of that Con? You wouldnt give them the fucking time of day. Shut up you damned liar, no you would not. Lying, Liar Face. Yer not Comics. Your just the thing that all the Comic Book, AND mainstream press flock to at Cons. And the real reason for the Con, and the damned costumes yer parading around in? That would be Comic Book Artists, and Comic Book Writers who make all that shit up."

 Wow. Really?

So Tony, as a representative of the male geek nerd community, you are trying to say 'hey girls, you can't cosplay UNLESS YOU KNOW YOUR STUFF'. Uh. yeah. So you expect EVERY. COSPLAYING. GIRL. to be a comic book geek BEFORE they are officially GREEN LIT by YOU to cosplay? Like who gives you permission to decide that? Also, so you're blaming hot girls for being temptresses on the con floor? Uh.. yeah, blame nature.

I mean, posers are gonna pose right? Can't exactly stop em? Porn stars included?

So he gets a lot of heat for talking crap about this and pretty much the war on his face book page is pretty much 'hey I'm like that and I can say what I want so too bad.'

Some people really need to grow up.

Some cool geek dug up this little gem on youtube - Sci Fi cosplay in UK in 1982 featured in a news program.

I mean, back then, there wasn't any internet, people just came up with outfits by themselves and well, geek wasn't exactly cool or looked on as cool back then but still, I gotta take my hat off to those guys who slapped together awesome looking costumes like these.

Hmmm - Danny Choo has started a Company in Singapore...?

Hmm so Danny Choo's latest blog post has stated he has just set up a company in Singapore.

As seen on this post

"I'm currently still in Singapore and will be here until the 21st - now that I've set up a company in Singapore, there is a lot to do to grow the business here. Anyway - stuff about the Singapore company comes in a different post."

I wonder what's he's up to.. hmm. Intriguing

Danny Choo really has come a long way. From the fish-out-of-water Asian kid born in East End, London who was passed from foster home to foster home, who used to get bullied, beat up a lot and then finding himself in Japan as well as diving into everything Anime. You've come a lonnng way bro. Good on you!

What in the - Ikkitousen..the Musical? - Japan

Anime fans would know Ikkitousen / Battle Vixens as one of those silly skantily clad girl shows about girls who beat each other up. Well, guess what? They're turning it into a MUSICAL THEATRE SHOW in Japan.

So it's like..a Cosplay Musical...?

Cosplay style musicals aren't uncommon in Japan. They've had Phoenix Wright, Sakura Wars, Prince of Tennis and all that kinds of stuff, usually for girls. Well now..they're venturing into Dude land with Ikkitousen the Musical.

I must say, the casting is pretty darn spot on. They really look like their characters!

Uh yeah... ok.. dollar signs lighting up for the guys who made this show and uh.. Otakus really dig this stuff so.. yeah....


I'm Not Dead~! XD

I'm Not Dead?! XD

I will be free tomorrow and stuff so I will put up something awesome ok?

Thanks once again for your support and keep supporting Cosplay!

Showcase - Les Miserables the Movie - Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz is my favorite photographer. I first encountered her work in Vanity Fair, the Harry Potter spread,  Goblet of Fire in 2001. That showcase just blew my mind. The way she set up the cast, the lighting on set, sure they were promo photos but they captured the cast in such a way that I have never seen. It was like she really went to Hogwarts to photograph the characters just being themselves. And they just felt real in a strange surreal kind of way.

Ms Leibovitz has recently done a promo set for Les Miserables the movie for Vogue. These shots are more of the commercial side than the arty side but still, beautiful composition and lighting.

The film will be out in December and I CAN'T WAIT to see it!

Looks very Christmas Carol this one.
Amanda Seyfried as grown up Cosette
Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean
Master and Mistress of the House - Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen
The lovely Anne Hathaway as Fantine, without the wig. Just herself. This is my favorite of the set
Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Cosette's Lover
Russell Crowe as Javert, the man after Jean Valjean

Check out Annie Leibovitz other INSANELY amazing photos
