You may have seen the phrase “Harlem Shake” circulating around social media sites lately. I hadn’t bothered to check it out until I saw it paired with Star Wars (the inclusion of those two words will make me click on most links).
The Harlem Shake is a dance and according to the Hero Complex, it follows a specific formula:
Set to a clip from a song by Baauer, the videos (and the song) have a two-part structure. When the first part plays, one person – often wearing a mask – dances while being ignored by the other the people in the scene. Then the beat changes and the scene changes: Suddenly everyone is wearing crazy costumes and going nuts.
It’s practically made for cosplayers, and if you’re still on the fence about watching Jedi and astromechs cut a rug, the clip’s only 30 seconds. I like the one with humans, but I love the one with action figures.
Watch the videos after the break.

Here’s a fun video from our good friend Bruce and we’re not talking about Bruce Wayne. His name is Bruce Hicks and HE IS BATMAN!!
A fictional hero party, all of the Justice League initially found Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash (Barry Allen), Environmentally friendly Lantern (Hal Nike jordan), Aquaman, as well as Martian Manhunter of their company list all through the 50′s. Ever since then, many superheroes include become a member of his or her’s position as well as Green Arrow, Chief Formidable device, Charcoal Canary, a Atom, Hawkman, Spear like Boyfriend, Inflammed Tornado, Firestorm, Zatanna, different Green Lanterns, and a lot more.It is outstanding. A nightmare, even Starro is normally awesome. Along with the requesting, Wonder Woman is certainly cosplayed from Margie Cox, so i highly recommend you visit the woman Youtube and discover the main image right here. I’m not sure all of the other cosplayers, still thumbs nearly Grace Moss with BodhiTree Digital photography training for any magnificent photo!
At this point here’s an epic cross-over you will don’t take a look at daily.Cosplay married couple Dante by Satan May perhaps Holes plus Schokohutige Small gravel Shooter were noticed go on Otakuthon 2012 within the Palais des congr s environnant les Montr al , Montreal Norm Facility (I have faith that married couple this means that several other snapshot but proper us if perhaps I’m bad).Friends connected with quarry, Satty, appeared to be one of the several audience within the conference, anf the took quite a number of pics. You might want to go and visit his particular Otakuthon record if youve been one of many cosplayers inside the hoax.Doing it looks like quite a huge event.

This Halloween is apparently the year to dress as a vehicle from Star Wars. I must have missed the memo because yesterday we saw an AT-ST costume, and today brings a two person AT-AT Imperial Walker costume.
Stkmach on Instructables wanted to do something big this year, and he succeeded. His 1:6.5 scale AT-AT takes two people to operate and measures over 10′ tall and 12′ long. The frame was built from PVC, and the skin was corrugated plastic (just like the AT-ST). He had to work stilts into the rig too so that it could actually move. I hope he teams up with the AT-ST and that they find a rebel base to threaten soon.
See a few in-progress photos after the break.

Ready for a dose of adorable?
Three-year-old Kieran wanted “to have a Spider-Man” for Christmas. His dad told this to a friend, and that friend dressed like Santa and brought a wrapped Spider-Man with him. Kieran unwraps his present and acts way cooler than I would in the same situation. Spidey shows him moves, hangs out, and sings with him. It’s the best. And one of my favorite parts is that Spidey wears red Chucks to complete his outfit.

In next week’s Arrow, “Muse of Fire” – no episode this week due to the holiday – we’ll finally meet Helena Bertinelli, The Huntress. In these recently released photos we get our first chance to check out her crime-fighting duds, and I must say, they do not disappoint.
Number one thing I love, she’s covered! No belly window here, thank you very much. Plus, I love the hints of purple they promised would be included. Overall, I think it’s a killer look with a great silhouette. And look, she’s wearing an actual mask as opposed to Oliver’s silly face paint.
These particular shots come from Jessica de Gouw‘s second episode, “Vendetta,” but I hope we’ll be seeing her suit up in “Muse” as well. What do guys think? Do you like the look?

Oh Man, check out the beauty of this photo!! At this years recent 2012 New York City Comic Con ( NYCC ) the CA Enterprises Toy Company revealed the prototype of what the packaging for the “CAPTAIN ACTION Batman Outfit” will look like and it looks GREAT! I totally love the retro silver-age style. They even used Carmine Infantino artwork!! Plus, if you look at the back of the box they also show that they will be making one of The Joker!! Look for these to hit retail stores around 2013.
For the few people who don’t know who Captain Action is, this was a very famous toy line in the 1960′s created by the Ideal Toy Company. Basically, he was sort of like the 12″ G. I. Joe Doll except Captain Action had a different persona and then they also sold Superhero Outfits you could buy to transform him into another character. They made outfits of Batman, Aquaman, Superman, Spiderman, and many others. These vintage toys are hard to find today & very collectible. Plus, they’re just really cool!!
