Comic-Con Cosplay Part 3-1

Welcome to the last, well almost last, installment of the Comic-Con cosplay I’ve been posting. People are liking it and the site stats reflect that so thank you to all the Otakus. Now I said almost the last installment as I’ve been able to locate more pics than usual and just so the gallery doesn’t become too cluttered, I’m going to be breaking it this final section into two posts. Without further ado, enjoy the pics! Snake looks pretty cool as does Morrigan 🙂

Comic-Con Cosplay Part 1

Welcome to Part One of the cosplay shenanigans that have been occurring the past week over at the latest Comic-Con in San Diego. There are some great creations in there from FF Lightning to classic Nintendo favourites and current gen characters from various PS3 and Xbox 360 games. Have a good look through these as I’ll be putting up parts 2 and 3 later on during the week to make sure all the great eye catching cosplayers have been featured!




Comic-Con Update

Comic-Con has just kicked off proceedings in San Diego with its Preview Night making Thursday the official first day of the convention. Famed Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima, is there and via his Twitter feed has already started posting some snaps of the event. Check the gallery below.

The first snap is Kojima-San with Yoji Shinkawa, Shinkawa-San being the mechanical designer from both the Metal Gear and the Zonf of the Enders series. Next up is Hideo with a cosplayer dressed as Eva. Third are the gang from Mega64 who do parodies of games on their site and once did a hilarious Metal Gear parody guest starring Kojima-San. Fourth is the impressive mecha from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch movie that dealt serious damage and just looked cool. And lastly we have Kojima-San with Yuji Horii, a game designer made famous by being the brains behind the Dragon Quest series amongst others.

That’s all for today, hopefully Kojima-San will keep posting the pics, I’ll keep putting the cool ones here for you and for future reference, you too can follow Hideo Kojima’s Twitter feed here.

Japanese Women’s Soccer team wins FIFA World Cup

I’m not really a sports person but I had to post here that earlier this morning, the national Japanese women’s soccer team beat the USA in the final of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Despite some absolutely atrocious racist remarks made on Facebook and Twitter, which I won’t post here but if you want to you can read here, the team prevailed clawing their way back to a valiant 2-2 score after extra time. It went to penalties where the USA squandered a few tries and even missed the goal altogether in once instance. Highlight clip below for you to check out…some serious soccer skills here including the sublime header from USA striker, Abby Wambach, which was set up nicely for a header hitting the back of the net.
