Star Wars Cosplay Review (Mostly)
Normally, I complain about cosplayers who are morbidly obese wearing costumes that should be left for the attractive people. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many attractive cosplayers. Sometimes, there are skinny people who still shouldn’t be wearing certain costumes. Behold the skinny slave Leia:
She isn’t terribly ugly, she certainly isn’t fat, but she still has no business wearing that outfit. Maybe one of Amidala’s handmaidens would have been more suitable. The boldness of these people amazes me to no ends.
Next we have Darth Vader. It’s almost impossible to screw up Darth Vader unless you use really crappy costuming. This guy has a nice, solid costume. I am sure he is an ubergeek, but we can’t tell. Well, except for the fact that he’s wearing a Darth Vader costume.
Then I found this guy, who did an awesome job with the unmasked Vader/Anakin:
Pretty styling. The makeup could have been a tad better, but strong overall. The wanker of a Jedi standing next to him is another matter altogether. Let’s just say that I’m not surprised to see that his saber is pink.
After seeing that picture I wondered if it was even possible to screw up Vader. Because let’s face it, this pudgy little guy still looks awesome:
All right, so his mask is pathetic and his suit is pretty dodgy, but he is little. His resources are limited. This kid is my hero. He doesn’t even need the stinking mask. That’s how cool this guy is. Besides, I was thinking it would be funny if some big, fat guy like me dressed up as Vader. Have really awesome kit, but just be big and fat. Cause let’s face it, if I had The Force, I would be abusing it to no end.
I would be the size of Jabba the Hutt, but could kill you with my mind, chop you up with my floating saber, force grip you over to a skillet, fry you up, and gorge myself on your flesh. Disgusting? Yes, but worth it because we all know that every living thing has midi-chlorians. The more I could get in my system, the stronger I would be in the force, and the stinkier my stool. Why more Jedi’s don’t engage in cannibalism is beyond me. German Jedis would be unstoppable.
A midget Vader would be super funny too, as this little guy helps to illustrate. A 7 foot tall Yoda would be a bold move too.
Finally, we travel to the Star Trek universe in order to see this sorry excuse for a Klingon:
Sadly, it’s one of the best Klingons I’ve ever seen by a cosplayer. What we can see of his outfit looks good, and the hair and face prosthetics look pretty decent. Why not finish the job up with a little bit of makeup? Why go to all that trouble and expense just to make it look like someone pooped on your head? Why not grow a full goatee instead of that gay looking stache? Somehow the poop and the stache seem linked. Maybe this is a German Klingon?
