Since Nicholas Winding Refn’s impending remake of Barbarella seems to be in the news today, here’s several familiar faces attempting their take on the character, alongside Jane Fonda’s original for comparison’s sake. (All images cultivated from Steve Cook’s most excellent blog Secret Oranges, which is well worth a look-see.)
Daphne & Velma from Scooby-Doo! (Cosplayers: Tegan & Con)
Photos by yours truly; sometimes I do alright in the pic-taking stakes. (And these two are just the bestest.)
A fantastic! Femme Ninth Doctor, photographed at Supanova Expo Melbourne 2013.
Yep, I took this. Thing was, I wouldn’t have known she was cosplaying as the Ninth Doctor if not for her sonic screwdriver! But she was very amenable to this tired old duffer taking a couple of pics - here’s the first one I snapped:
She was really lovely & patient too, it must be said, especially as it was the Sunday afternoon of the con, where most everyone’s dog-tired.
Tony Stark! (Cosplayer: Rachel)
IT’S SO GOOD I CAN’T EVEN-
MY LORD I LOOK SO FRIGGIN’ TIRED ;A;
but thank you everyone !! and thank you more so Brent :3
My pleasure; you looked great. Plus how good is that gif? Best response, IMHO.
This was the biggest surprise of the weekend; finding somebody cosplaying as Thranduil, from Noelle Stevenson’s “Broship of the Ring” webcomics!
Damnedest thing; I was walking the con floor on Sunday wondering “Gee, wouldn’t it be cool if there was a Jessica Rabbit cosplayer here?” I turned the corner, and lo & behold…
Daria and Jane!
This was the only photo I didn’t have to edit in any way, shape or form; these two girls nailed it.
Very satisfied with this photo.
