DragonCon 2014 Cosplay – Updated 8/25

Excited for Dragon Con as much as we are?  A big part of Dragon Con is the amazing, unique, and skillfully crafted cosplay.   He is a glimpse into what we are doing this year and have done in the past.  For more information about Dragon Con visit Dragoncon.org

 

Again this year for Dragon Con I will be cosplaying as Robert Muldoon from Jurassic Park.  Last year I went as Muldoon but combined elements of the video game Borderlands.  This year I purchased a superior fitting hat then previous one.  Also purchased a SPAS-12 shotgun seen in the sequence where Muldoon is hunting the escaped raptors. – Nate (8/01)

In addition to Jurassic Park cosplay I will be dressing as the 11th Doctor from Doctor Who and possible as a House Ravenclaw student from Harry Potter films and books. – Nate (8/22)

Maleficent

We have all seen Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and loved to hate Maleficent!

Here is the trailer!!!!

As an adult I do get nostalgic for Disney movies now and again, however halfway through I find I’m actually wanting the villain to win. Not sure what that says about me. I mean come on a King and Queen are so terrified harm will come to their daughter so they have her live with fairies for 16 years and on her 16th birthday, which is the day harm would come, they have her come back for a big freaking party. Yeah they deserved what they got.

Anyway, the trailer for Maleficent looks absolutely extraordinary. I’m not a huge fan of Angelina Jolie, but I feel like this part is her, yes I know I know low blow.

However as we all have been tricked many a time before with fabulous trailer for horrible movies, this trailer is stunning. The minute thirty second shows us Aurora as a child frolicking through a field of flowers, as a youth before pricking her finger, finally as a sleeping beauty. It also shows Maleficent hiding in shadows working her sneaky.

Below are some of my favorite shits from the trailer!
