Batman vs Superman

102597285-batman-vs-superman-1910x1000

I have some prior knowledge of these character and the events that they brought about so I’ll also be referencing that. Comic book geek here!

So along with that…. Ahem…

DW-River_Song_Spoilers.

So this movie rocked! It was everything everyone had hoped for and is leading the way to a great many other heroes and movies to come.

140703-Superman

Superman was already introduced for this universe, with his last movie Man of Steel. He’s the biggest boy scout in the world and he played that off super well. They defiantly jumped ahead with him and Lois already living together. But it was nice to see how they showed some rocky realistic issues because of the Clark being Superman. Helping bring him back to earth and not being a “god”.

 

So they had to get more-details-on-batman-v-superman-and-batmans-suicide-squad-connectionus caught up with Batman. They got you big time with the opening intro of Bruce becoming Batman. The whole dream thing was really weird throughout the movie though… They also made Batman really “dark” for what he is normally. They had him breaking his normal rules, but they sorta tried to cover it by having Alfred say “when good men go bad.” So he’s a Dark Batman in this universe alright let’s keep going. Alfred was great loved him, all the quick wit and sarcasm. It was fantastic that they actually showed how much Alfred actually does for Batman/Bruce. Batman has never completely been solo with Alfred around, so when he takes over controls of the Batwing, so awesome! Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince love the chemistry they were giving them! They have always sorta had a thing going and it was great that it was introduced there.

Lex Luthor Jr.,  he was done well but the part with him being openly schizo…. yeah no… he was always a show man and was always able to hide that side of him. It would slip every now and then again but never with the public eye on him. But since this movie is in a “darker universe” again it slides… Him being so manipulative is completely accurate. I think he was portrayed really well in this movie and it was kinda funny watching him sorta become his dad when they shaved his head.

Alright now I apologize in advance here because this is when it gets ugly….

WTF DID THEY HAVE TO KILL SUPERMAN ALREADY??!! AND DOOMSDAY REALLY??!! Lex Luthor Jr. did not make him! I was willing to let it go with it if he was making Bizarro, but DOOMSDAY COME ON!

Speaking of Doomsday…. again he shouldn’t have been in the movie… They did do him justice though. He looked accurate, he was kryptonian, and he did kill Superman… But again LEX DID NOT MAKE HIM!!

And now the fight… Well guess what BATMAN WINS DUH!!! Anyone that knows Batman knows he has a plan on how to take out ANY/ALL of the Metahumans/Aliens of his world out. That’s just who is he is, being prepared and seeing the potential darkness in everyone. The battle was epic, Batman had everything setup perfectly. I was actually waiting for Wonder Woman to stop them and call them little boys. But where they left it was great, Batman wins and proves he does have a heart. But seriously why are both their mother’s named Martha? I mean if Batman listened to Superman to begin with we would have never had the fight, but again “dark”. But boys will be boys right? Bash each other up a bit and then all is right again being best of buds. XP

And I know that they killed Superman so they had an excuse to bring everyone together to help fight what may come now that the protector of Earth is dead…? ~_^  Alright and now those little teasers of the other metahumans…

I love that Amazon Warrior Princess! Not Xena… this time, who is also a amazing…but Wonder Woman.. freaking amazing! Loved the costume and how they showed that she was right on with Superman. Still kinda wondering about the timeline with her, but that should be answered on June 23, 2017 (mark your calendars) with her movie. *crosses fingers*

 

For many of us this will be a first to say this… I WANT MORE AQUAMAN!!!15 - 1.jpg So not fair that always all they showed of him…*cries*

Bad Wolf Part 2

As stated in Bad Wolf Part 1 the goal is to make a cosplay of Princess Monoake for a two year old.

monokae

Sadly I failed in the picture taking department of this so I’ll try to give as much detail as I can instead. Please also pardon the crude displays.

Dress & Tunic

DressI used blue suede material for the “dress” which was pretty easy to do. I just made a rectangle that was half my daughter’s height when folded in half.  Cut a hole in the center of the fold, then sewed sides together leaving room for arms at the top. Then cut the bottom to be jagged and roughed up.

Tunic

 

The tunic was pretty much done the same way. But cut from daddy’s old white tshirt, helped give it the worn look.

 

Ears & Mask

For the mask I decided to use Fun Foam. I choose this instead of paper mache or clay for the main reason of TWO YEAR OLD.  And what do two year olds do?  GO CRAZY! The bounce, run, jump and fall. I wanted something that wouldn’t break or hurt if fallen upon.

DSC05515So I snag a few sheets of Red, Tan, and Black. I used a paper plate and small paper cups as my outline templates for the sizes of some the shapes. I traced the outline of these with a pencil onto the foam, the others were just sorta free hand.

 

 

Mask parts

Cut out them out and it was time for the hot glue!I wanted to make sure this thing wasn’t going to fall apart.

Mask

And poof! You have a mask that just needs to be attached to the hood of her cloak. Which brings us to….

The Cloak

IMG_4606.JPGSo for the cloak I just bought a yard of your basic white fur material.  A yard is defiantly more then what I needed, but I planned on mistakes.

Cloak

I cut a forth of it into a square and then cut off the bottom corners, rounded it out.

 

Then I took one of those corners, trimmed it a bit and used for it for the hood. The hood isn’t actually a hood for this costume; it’s just a spot to attack the mask to.

After that I just sewed the hood to the cloak. Then sewed the cloak to the tunic. Made it a bit easier to get on and off. Originally the was to attach it to her teeth necklace with a clasp but I didn’t get that far. Maybe for the next round.

Finishing Touch

I didn’t get to do as many detailed pieces as I would have liked. But then again it is for a two year old so probably for the best anyways.

Boots – I full out cheated for those and hit up the Dollar Store grabbing a pair of adult tan sock. Slipped the over her shoes and fold it back down to her ankles.

Headband – Dollar Store again, a pack of adult hair bands. Perfect size for going around her head and not digging in.

War Paint – I actually failed to bring the face paint I had bought. So cheated and use red lip gloss instead. It worked out pretty well, and looked like blood when she smeared it. So win win right?!

And now time for the show….

SacAnime Summer 2015

Better late than never!

SacAnime* happens twice year and is kid friendly, so I have started becoming a regular there now. It’s also one of the smaller cons, so not as crazy as some of them can be. They had some good guest speakers and panels, but I wasn’t able to hit anything this round. But there are always lots of cosplayers with great costumes to check out! Sadly I forgot new batteries for my camera so barely any pictures of this year’s con.CosplayersSACTotoro(Super cute), Leelo Dallas (with multi-pass), Steampunk Ursula, Cruella Deville & Puppy (such a cute idea!), Scarlet Witch

CosplayersSAC2Daring Doo, Tinker Bell, Alien, Digimon!

 Sadly I’m not as up to date on all the newest/popular animes. So I have no idea what this group meet up is. But they have some very cute costumes.

And we** busted out a few different costumes from our closet and some new ones to join in on all the fun.

Bad Wolf

Alright time for a new project! I’m going to make this adorable little girl into a vicious protector of the forest!

monokae

Whose doesn’t love the idea of a Chibi Princess Mononoke running around growling at people right? So I’ve spent the last week gathering images and researching materials. This isn’t for a cosplay competition it’s for a two year old. So I’m not going for completely accurate, going for comfort, cuteness and affordable. So these are the materials I have picked up to work with.

  • Fake White Fur – Cloak
  • Blue Material(sorry can’t remember the name) – Dress
  • Tshirt – Tunic
  • Socks – boots
  • Fun Foam – mask/ earrings
  • Clay – necklace
  • Face paint – war paint
  • Baby Elastic – Head/arm bands

I went Joann Fabrics, Michael’s Crafts and Daddy’s old tshirt drawer. It always helps to keep cost down by using all the coupons you can. Joann’s actually will take competitors coupons always a nice tip to know. This is why it tends to take me a bit to acquire all the materials I intend to use. Being a mother of three dragons erpp… I mean kids. My goal is always to do this at a reasonable price.

Next round I’ll start mock assembling everything and making “blueprints” before I actually start doing any real work. Then slowly start putting it all together, until then seeya next time!

Myth Busters, Misteek Style!

Through the looking glass....

Today on MBMS we have two different myths we’re are putting to the test.

Female Armor, the less the better!

&

Is Misteek actually Poison Ivy?

Stay tuned to find out!

Female Armor

While of course we want every female character to look awesomely badass while kicking ass. Sometimes the options they get don’t always give the best stats.

I’m mean don’t get me wrong I don’t mind staring at the lovely rendered/animated features of female characters, but it does feel a little one sided sometimes. I mean we all can’t be an Erza Scarelet. Looking great and kicking ass in anything we wear.

I soo need to able to requip like she does. But I digress and need to get back to the main point. Is less armor better? So for this test I decided to use myself as the test subject. And my battle field the front yard…

From the mouth of babes…

I am a mother of three, two boys of four and three, one little girl of two. And being the geek/dork/nerdy girl that I am, I of course do allow them to play video games. (Limited amount of time, they do see the daylight of outdoors)

Starting them out with one of the best, Mario! They love to play Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U currently. While watching them play today I was rather puzzled as to why they started a level and immediately both of the boys started jumping their characters off the cliff.

Me – “Why are you guys jumping off the cliff?”

Older Boy – “There’s no leaf.”

Younger Boy – “Yeah, we need to get the leaf.”

This leaf that they are waiting for not only changes your character into a Tanooki suit.

But it also changes them into a White Tanooki suit, which makes them invincible! (Aside from falling off a cliff.)

This item will appear at the beginning of a level that you have had “game over” on multiples times. I am happy that Nintedno did build that into the game, understanding that a younger generation would be playing it. (More reasons why Nintendo is awesome!) I will also give my boys credit; they know what levels they have a hard time doing and only do it then but still….

LITTLE CHEATERS!!! Xp

Insurgent, Movie Review-ish

I just finished watching the movie “Insurgent” (Yes, I have watched Divergent) I enjoyed both of them greatly but find them lacking in some areas. I’ll just hit up some of the spots of Insurgent for this one. So now of course…..

Alright, first I have not read the books. I do indeed intend to now of course. Hopefully this will clear up some of the “issues” spots I have.

I did enjoy how they started right off from where the last movie left off. Some of the plus so many years from the last time just never sit well with me. But I also felt that parts of the time line just went way to fast at the same time. It might just be me and I do know that they mostly likely had a lot of ground to cover in a limited amount of time.

But what was with the whole nightmare thing? Was that trying her way of trying to deal with the guilt and grief she was feeling? Just seem a little outta place or maybe just sorta rushed into it.

Then the truth serum thing with Ford, he said Trix awaken him from the trance. I thought he was a divergent as well and that’s why he wasn’t in the trance. I mean did her really holding his hand bring him out of it? That kinda bugged me; I guess I’ll have to re-watch that part of the last movie again.

The whole family tree of his too, that was like really…. abusive father and a mother that abandons him. The mother that also happens to be the leader of the faction less… Again maybe it’s all cleared out better in the books. (Most of the time it is.) And is Jeanine his mom’s past rival, bff, sister or what? I mean you know something is there again they never say what though.

Peter I actually though might have been a mole, not just being the prick he was only trying to save his own skin. I am sorta glad he made it and helped out in the end but still.

Caleb switching sides on the other hand was a hard blow. I mean I get it being “Vulcan” and all, to him it seemed like the best plan. Still sucked…

Sorry I feel like I’m just sitting here bashing the movie. There were lots of good parts too!! I just always tend not to say the good parts because I can never do them justice with words. Again I did enjoy this movie and I would recommend it to others to watch.

Thanks for reading my review/rant!
