Article The Best Cosplay in C2E2 History (Part 2)

By Staff / March 29, 2014

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2)  is upon us - the biggest entertainment convention in the Windy City means one thing: cosplay. C2E2 has been home to some of the best cosplays in recent history, and this year they'll be honoring the costumed geeks from across the country with the C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay, a competition awarding cash and prizes to the best cosplayers around.

Excited? You should be. Here's a taste of some of the best cosplay from years past....

 

Look at this Predator cosplay. LOOK AT THIS:

A truly great cosplay does more than just look like the thing - this person EMBODIES the Predator with their body langauge and total immersion into the role.

By Andrew Bridgman / March 28, 2014

 

"Heroes are not born - they're created."

-William Fichtner (the guy from Prison Break)

 

  1. Scientist

    Uh, sir?

  2. William Fichtner (from Prison Break)

    Johnson, stop asking questions - get back to making those heroes!

  3. Scientist

    Yeah, about that...you SURE these are the heroes you wanna create?

  4. William Fichtner (from Prison Break)

    Uh, YEAH. Crime is running rampant and Megan Fox is the city's top journalist. Things are bad and we need laboratory-created heroes ASAP.

  5. Scientist

    Well, if we're MAKING heroes, couldn't we make...something else? Like, pretty much anything else other than THIS.

Article 4 Reasons It Sucks To Be An Ewok

4 Reasons It Sucks To Be An Ewok

 

1. Your God Abandoned You

  4 Reasons It Sucks To Be An Ewok

Wow, that must have been pretty incredible to MEET a god - well, C3PO isn't an actual god (more of an effeminate robot butler), but the Ewoks THOUGHT he was a god. Some kind of benevolent savior that had been delivered to them for reasons unknown. However, after Return of the Jedi, odds are C3PO went with his buddies and left Endor - and the Ewoks.

That's right - their god abandoned them, never to return. That has to sting - the ultimate rejection - a being that you pray to and honor as the highest of being, just picking up and leaving when you need Him the most. After all, C3PO just convinced them to join the Rebel cause and battle the Empire, which led to countless Ewok deaths.

Speaking of...

Article There's a Glow-in-the-Dark Art Show In Brooklyn

By Jake Young / March 27, 2014

Bottleneck Gallery is an art space that has a knack for putting on shows that really hit you in the nostalgia. This month they've brought back one of their most popular shows with "When the Lights Go Out 2", in which every artist must incorporate glow-in-the-dark pigments into their pieces. The result is a whole gallery that literally transforms under darkness. The exhibit only runs until April 9th, but you can buy artwork and prints at the Bottleneck Gallery website, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.

We've highlighted a few of the works that caught our attention.

Article Titanfall Trolls Cheaters In the Best Way Possible

By Andrew Bridgman / March 27, 2014

Titanfall, like any other game with competitive multiplayer released in the last few decades, has a little bit of an issue with hackers. They use aimbots, wallhacks, and more to more or less ruin the game experience for everyone else. Also, for themselves, because what's the fun in playing a game like Titanfall if you're going to cheat? ARE GIANT MECHS AND JETPACKS NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU?

Anyways, the makers of Titanfall have come up with a fun way of dealing with these Swordfish-wannabes: let them battle each other. ONLY each other.

Article 5 Theories About 'Game of Thrones' That Are Totally Right

By Andrew Bridgman / March 26, 2014

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones  

 

Few TV shows inspire the passionate debating and theorizing as Game of Thrones - and as someone who's seen the first 40 minutes of the pilot, I can see why! There are so many characters and relationships and locations to keep track of. And with the new season premiering soon, I thought I might share some of my most well-thought out theories with you. Enjoy!

 

1. I think Joffrey might be the child of Cersei and HER BROTHER!

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones

Okay, I know this seems a little out there, but hear me out: we know Cersei and her brother have some kind of "VERY SPECIAL" relationship, we know that everyone in the Lannister family is blonde, AND we know that both Joffrey and Tyrion are like pretty close to the same height. Coincidence? Methinks NOT!

In other words, Cersei and Tyrion have definitely been boning. They should call this show Game of Bones! (because, seriously, there's a lot of sex AND like skeleton bones laying around)
