The Great Fairy from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!
I quite like this photo; this cosplayer was also dressed as Crimson Viper the day before (I’ll have to post that ASAP), and she did a great job with this ensemble, despite me not twigging what it was until she reminded me! (I’d clocked OoT at least twice, you’d think I’d recognize it!)
However, the one true bum note I had at Supanova all weekend came right before I took this; a trio of Doctor Who cosplayers (all as the Tenth Doctor, oddly enough) ran up behind me - whilst I was talking to her - and shouted “HEY CAN WE GET OUR PICTURE TAKEN WITH YOU?”
This pissed me off, and I let them know it; I just simply said “Excuse me…you could have waited until I was finished, guys.” My tone of voice indicated I was in mood to be messed with; they very quickly took their picture and slunk off, muttering apologies all the while.
This happened a fair bit over the weekend; I’d be taking a picture whilst someone would literally creep up behind me and snap something on their bloody smartphone without so much as a please or thank you in the cosplayer’s direction. What happened to common courtesy? Or am I just old-fashioned in that respect?
No, your eyes don’t deceive you, that is indeed the Flash (“The Fastest Man Alive”) jogging past the clocks of Flinders Street Station! The image is from the latest digital issue of the video-game tie-in Injustice: Gods Among Us, penned by Melbourne native Tom Taylor. The same story has Superman and Wonder Woman breaking up a demonstration taking place on the steps of Parliament House, at the top end of Bourke Street.
After seeing New York, L.A. and London so often in the comics I read growing up, it’s kinda cool to see envirions I’m familiar with in a DC release.
So I parodied Lana Del Rey’s Video Games and made it about actual video games. I also made a video to go with it and so far it’s been really well received. Make sure to open it on youtube and view the description if you like it — there’s a download link in there. :)
