My Zerg Hydralisk Cosplay

My Starcraft Hydralisk Zerg costume made for You Got Game convention last 2006. I only remember seeing two videos of it in action, one shot during the catwalk, and this. This was shot in our garage, where a friend of mine wore it because he wanted to borrow it for a Halloween party. Added some sound effects.

The costume was retired, its fate documented in my old Livejounral entry back in April 19, 2008:

This tutorial will teach you how to easily create (yes i promise, its easy) basic special effect prosthetics that will replicate damaged skin and exposed machinery of cyborgs or any other characters like The Terminator, Bionic Man/Bionic Woman, Ghost in the Shell characters, DC's Metallo, Star Trek Borgs and even Fembots.

Let's start with basic scars.

Sense and Sensibilities: Election Gun Ban and Cosplay

(crediting Neonkenji21 for bringing up the topic on his Multipy Blog)

I'll make this absolutely easy to understand and straight to the point.

Guns and other objects similar to such will be frowned upon
if not get you in trouble with the law on Election season.

Please don't try to rationalize that they are toys, that they are
made of harmless plastic, styrofoam or wood.
