Anton Yelchin and the legacy he left for Star trek fans

2016 is a great year for many of us, but it’s also the year that has led to the passing of many legends and celebrities. We had to say goodbye to David Bowie among many others and now we also have to say goodbye to another important person for the great work, Anton Yelchin.

AntonYelchin061916

Despite being a very young actor and a truly rising star, Anton Yelchin was still a very professional, reliable and friendly star that was always ready for some good jokes and fun. Known for playing Chekov in the new Star Trek movies, Anton Yelchin was already a fan favorite and he managed to impress the people around him unlike never before. He managed to bring an entirely new, interesting and fun take on the coveted character and  many people loved him quite a bit thanks to his charisma.

While many people were eager to see him in the new movie, Anton Yelchin was preparing to head to a rehearsal that he had on the 19th of June during the evening. Since he has never missed a rehearsal, his friends were worried and turned out to his house at around 1 AM. That was the time when the friends saw that the actor was in the driveway, unconscious and with no signs of respiration. The LAPD spokesperson told us that he exited the car then the car rolled backward which led to trauma and in the end death.

The main trait of Anton Yelchin was naive yet sweet and that has managed to land him in quite a lot of great roles throughout the years. The way he got the Chekov role was very interesting, and the fact that he maintained it through 3 entries show how important and fun the character was for the Star Trek community.

He started to work in many TV series and movies. In 2006 he entered a great role in the Alpha Dog crime thriller and the next year he actually landed the role of RDJ’s troubled pupil for the movie Charlie Bartlett. Aside from the Star Trek movies, he also played in the Like Crazy movie with Felicity Jones and he even was Mel Gibson’s son in The Beaver.

These roles were very interesting and fun for everyone, but it’s the unique attention to detail that he placed into the role of Pavel Chekov for the new Star Trek trilogy that has managed to pay off immensely here. The actor even managed to win acclaim for the humor and the innocence that he had.

As you can expect, all the cast members and even JJ Abrams were shocked by the immediate passing of the start and everyone include Paramount Pictures wanted to show their support for the star. That alone has shown how important Anton Yelchin was for the entire group and unfortunately the world is never set to be the same without him.

Even if he passed at only 27 years of age, he did manage to have a very interesting career and one filled with blockbusters as well as incredible movies. Even other people such as Tom Hiddleston were deeply appreciative and offered support to the family.

The actor was born in 1989 in Russia and the parents who were figure skaters moved to the US. As you can expect, the family is devastated and they asked for privacy.

One has to wonder though, what does Anton Yelchin leave behind at this time? He actually managed to show us a lot of talent and experience in the movie industry despite the young age. He was a very versatile, professional and talented young man who worked very hard in order to achieve his goals.

From many independent movies to TV series and other interesting roles, Anton Yelchin did manage to enter our hearts and now they are empty because he is not around us any more. He will always remain in our hearts as the perfect Chekov and one of the best actors in the Star Trek trilogy. One thing is certain, we will never forget the hard work and commitment that Anton Yelchin had and how well he played the role of Chekov. Anton Yelchin will surely be missed by all of us!

Rise Kujikawa Persona 4

maxresdefault

This review is re-blogged from http://itsuki-chan.wix.com/.

Hi guys , today I’m going to do a review for Cosplay Sky UK . They sponsored my Rise Kujikawa cosplay but they sell costumes, wigs and accessories for cosplay and more over 😀 their store is very well stocked, especially for the costumes, and the quality of every item is really high; I also got a wig from them and I can guarantee you that all the products are amazing. The communication with the sponsor was super fast and they always answer me in a polite and helpful way, but I don’t know if the actual communication with the store is fast as the one I got with the sponsor 🙁

The package arrived without problems and in a short time ^^ Inside the shipping package the costume was protected by a regular sealed plastic bag. I have nothing in particular to say about this point.

The cosplay is perfect , it looks like the pictures shows in the website and is very detailed ! Also for what concern the embroidery and the school’s logo. I was quite concern about the skirt fabric, as you know Rise’s skirt has a pied de poul texture, so I was scared that the skirt could be make with a different pattern or a low quality fabric, but when the costume arrived I discovered that the skirt fabric was super lovely and with a perfect pied the poul texture ❤ I’m really happy because the cosplay respect the character uniform in every single detail and the sites images show faithfully the costume .

The costume parts are :

  • a white turtleneck shirt

  • the black uniform shirt

  • the skirt, a yellow tie/ribbon.

The dress arrived also with a pair of black stockings included, but they kept falling off so I used a pair of kneesocks I already have.

When you order your costume you can choose between  pre-established  size or a costume made costume, create to order with your body measurements 😀 this is a very useful option, and the costume will fit you perfectly.

Actually mine was a little bit too large on the black shirt so I think in future I’m going to fix it a bit ( but it’s not a great problem ). In future I think I’ll change the yellow ribbon fabric and I’ll sew a new one, this because the fabric used is super shiny and satined and I prefere a more matt look ( but this is just my personal taste and maybe this thing doesn’t bother you too much )

I’m really happy and satisfied of this costume, I wanted to cosplay Rise for so long and they gave me the opportunity to wear a lovely and detailed uniform ! I really recommend you to visit Cosplaysky UK ‘s store because you can find a lot of interesting cosplay stuff and very high quality products  😀 I have a really nice experience with them and I hope to collaborate again with them in future

It also so comfortable and it needs only few editings in order to fitting and in order to looking like to the original one, as well as my punctiliousness wants.
The wig is very good: soft, thick and it can be edited in every style easily.
Cosplaysky UK is very fast in processing and shipping time and it has a very kind staff.

This is my first experience with the UK website, but immediately I feel in good communication with the seller.
I hope to keep this long-time sponsorship with Cosplaysky for other times!

Scarlet Witch Wanda in Captain America: Civil War

Hot-Toys-Scarlet-Witch-Movie-Masterpiece-Series-Figure-with-Hex-Effects-Pieces-e1433423991124

A lot of attention has been paid to all the fighting going on in Marvel’s newest film, Captain America: Civil War,  I have wrote a blog to review the film, As a female , today i ‘d like to say sth about the Scarlet Witch Wanda.

Scarlet Witch Wanda BiOgraphy

15d658e5da23e1036aedc97bde595901

Scarlet Witch Wanda, her biographic mother is Maria Maximoff, the wife of Magneto, escapes from him while pregnant, for she thought he was mad after losing their first daughter. Maria Maximoff give birth to twins, Wanda and Pietro,The Elder God Chthon altered Wanda at birth and gave her the ability to use magic in addition to her mutant abilities, planning to use her as a vessel when her powers reached maturity. Fearing that Magnus would discover the children, Magda leaves the sanctuary after noting to the Bova and supposedly dies of exposure to the elements,The High Evolutionary places the twins instead in the care of the Romani Django and Marya Maximoff, they brought up them else where instead of some certain place, that they did not remember them until well into their adult lives.

Main Experience:

The Scarlet Witch Wanda and Quicksilver used to attend the Magneto’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants , but they felt disappointed for all the things Magneto have done, Soon after Magneto’s abduction, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch join the Avengers. Along with Captain America as leader, and former villain Hawkeye, the four become the second generation of the Avengers and are later dubbed as “Cap’s Kooky Quartet”.

eb5cbc10-f398-0133-e703-0a315da82319

The Scarlet Witch Wanda’s husband vision was a Robert, she wants to have a child, but obviously her husband as Robert are unable help her.

Wanda in despair twisted her desire of happiness in subconscious into fantasy, she actually conceived the children using magic.

It was extremely dangerous for other Avengers when the abnormal psychological fluctuations happened in the Omega-level mutant, the avengers got out of control because of unable to locate the spirit of interference from Wanda.

Wanda’s first spirit breakdown led to the dissolution of the Avengers directly ,

Ant-man, Hawkeye and vision have died in the accident, the second breakdown turned the whole world into utopia, the direct result was the mutant population plummeted from one million to 182 people.

As a female, Wanda is weak, all she wanted was a normal family. But as a mutant, his ability was not getting from the Savvy, she would hurt the innocents for sure one getting abnormal in spirits; Before she recovers the world, she shot out hysterically” “No more mutants!”

BTW, in the movie we can see clearly that Vision and Scarlet Witch actually have some feelings to each other, pretty sure lots of people like me want to see some romance happened between them , unfortunately, not , as there isn’t much room for romance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Cosplaysky.co.uk has got the Scarlet Witch Wanda’s cosplay costumes in Captain america Civil War, you can check here if it is exactly the same as the the Scarlet Witch Wada’s wear in the movie  http://cosplaysky.co.uk/captain-america-civil-war-avengers-scarlet-witch-wanda-outfit-cosplay-costume.html

 

SpeedyThea Queen- the new Archer in Arrow Season 4

arrow-reveals-thea-queen-s-speedy-costume-for-season-4

Thea Queen born on January 21 1995,  the daughter of Malcolm Merlyn and the late Moira Queen, the step-daughter of the late Robert Queen(though treated unquestionably as his daughter throughout his life), the ex-step-daughter of Walter Steele, the maternal younger half-sister of Oliver Queen, the paternal younger half-sister of the late Tommy Merlyn and the aunt of William. Thea is also the ex-girlfriend of Roy Harper.

Why she is called “Speedy”

Though Malcolm was unaware that Thea was his daughter, And Thea was likewise in the dark, Robert Queen was aware but still loved Thea like his own.

Thea (it is insinuated) idolized Oliver as a child. They used to be close and, according to Oliver, he used to chase after her when she was younger, thus giving her the nickname, “Speedy”. When her father and brother (who were in reality her step-father and maternal half-brother) were both presumed dead, Thea felt alone and disconnected from the world. She fell into a life of drugs and partying to fill the void left by her father and brother.

After finishing the whole Arrow TV show, the story-line of the Thea Queen can be divided into four Parts.

Part 1: Olive Queen’s Return

Olive Queen

Thea was one of the first people to welcome Oliver’s  return with open arms, but later she was surprised and disappointed that Olive Queen was no longer her closest brother any more, Oliver expresses his unhappiness with her lifestyle which Olive himself used to lead.

Thea saw Oliver’s scars for the first time and when Oliver refused to talk about it, she begged him to let someone in to talk about what happened on the island,but in vain.

Her purse was stolen while she was out with Laurel. The thief who stole it was Roy Harper. Thea took pity on him and dropped the charges. She then tracked him down at his home in the Glades,then the relationship between Thea Queen and Roy Harper begins,

Roy

Part 2: Moira Queen’s Death

Arrow -- "Trust But Verify" -- Image AR111b_0275b -- Pictured: Susanna Thompson as Moira -- Photo: Jack Rowand/The CW -- ©2013 The CW Network. All Rights Reserved

5 months after the earthquake, Thea got her act together taking over Oliver’s role as owner of Verdant, and still in a relationship with Roy Harper. However, they tend to fight due to Roy trying to fill in the Hood’s role. When Oliver came back Thea was happy to see her brother again, who was impressed by how much his sister changed. Thea shut him down when Oliver attempted to persuade her to visit Moira in prison. Later Roy also made the same attempt, only to be shut down as well.

Part 3: Training with Malcolm Merlyn

Arrow -- "Streets of Fire" -- Image AR222b_0360b -- Pictured (L-R): Willa Holland as Thea Queen and John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn/Dark Archer -- Photo: Cate Cameron/The CW -- © 2014 The CW Network, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Happened to know that Thea Queen was his own daughter with Moira Queen,  Malcolm brought Thea to Corto Maltese after an attack, he began to train her the same way as he was trained for six months.

Due to the visits of her half brother Olive Queen and ex-boy friend Roy, she decided to disarm his father Malcolm Merlyn,proving to him that she was ready to leave.

At the airport, when coffee was spilt on her hand, she hardly flinched, much to Oliver’s surprise.

Part 4: Returning to Staring City.

Arrow -- "Green Arrow" -- Image AR401B_0070b -- Pictured: Willa Holland as Speedy -- Photo: Dean Buscher /The CW -- © 2015 The CW Network, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Returning as the new archer in Staring City with a masked hero, she was featured as  full-fledged member of Team Arrow fighting crime out in the field as Speedy, she then worked together with the arrow group to save the Starling City.

The Red Arrow Costume Thea Queen wear was adjusted from her ex-boy friend Roy Harper, which was also seeing a high resolution shot of her as Speedy , driving it home further that she’ll be lending her crimefighting and archery talents in the Arrow Season 4.

After reading the whole storyline of the arrow, do you wanna to cos Thea Queen in Arrow Season 4?

Review for the Film Civil War

captain-america-civil-war-poster-fea-1200x737

what do you think of When you think of a superhero movie ? I think of admirable heroes, breath taking stunts, witty one liners and suits that would be totally impractical in real life but are unbelievably cool. Captain America:Civil War ticks all these boxes, and more!

Since I was old enough to decide what my favorite color was, I’ve been a huge Marvel fan. Growing up I was surrounded by comics and action figures so i’ll admit, with all the hype surrounding Civil War I had my reservations but I was more than proven wrong.

marvel-iron-man-mark-xlvi-sixth-scale-captain-america-civil-war-hot-toys-feature-902622

Without giving away any spoilers, I think the story-line was well written to say the least. The plot was well explained and not in any way vague or over complicated, it guided the viewer through the events in a way that encouraged them to pick a side and become involved. (Personally, i’m team Iron-Man!) The film is crammed with humor,tension and fight scenes that would make any Marvel fan’s heart beat that little bit faster. I’ve found that in some superhero films there’s either too much action or too many wisecracks, Marvel have managed to find that sweet spot where the balance is just right and it keeps the story rolling at a pace everyone can keep up with.

Spider-Man-3-1200x632

Spider-Man was reintroduced into cinematic universe at the perfect time, he fitted into the film well and Civil War has laid the path for some amazing Spidery films to come. I believe I speak for most people when I say it was impossible not to smile when he appeared in his new, comic inspired suit for the first time in the film. We were also reintroduced to some characters from previous films who before we didn’t know much about besides the basics. After watching this film, I feel like we now know more about who each character is as a person and what makes them the heroes they are. Civil War has paved the way for what we can only anticipate be some astounding films as we come into Phase 3 of Marvel’s master plan.

captain-america-civil-war-02082016

I personally think that Captain America is MCU’s greatest achievement, the amount of detail in his story in unreal, making his trilogy one of the best I’ve seen and Civil War is the ultimate hero vs hero thriller that everyone should go and see. As a cosplayer movie accuracy is extremely important to me, especially when it comes to characters children look up to. Take Captain America for example, so many children want to be him and adore him, therefore the more accurate the costume the better and the most accurate i’ve been able to find is those made by CosplaySky. Their suits are closest you’re going to get to wearing Chris Evan’s actual costume. The amount of detail in the costumes is amazing, they are pretty much identical, right down to the buckle on the shoulder straps. If you’re looking for a screen accurate costume, I would highly recommend CosplaySky.

Wow, I sure did take my time to write this post!

I deeply apologize for posting this so late, but I wanted to make sure to get some nice photos ready for this review!
This time I will be reviewing a wig and a costume from CosplaySky.
CosplaySky
Make sure to check their site out! They have many character props, wigs and costumes for anime, game and movie characters. There are a lot of costumes to choose from and most of them are amazing!
As for the costume I chose…
il_570xN.577141187_j0es
I chose Ryuko Matoi’s costume from Kill la Kill.
I knew she wasn’t going to suit me but I really like her so I wanted to give her a try.
(I might cosplay Nonon and Mako as well! I think they will be better.)
I also got Ryuko’s wig from them and you can find their links below!
缠流子
Ryuko Matoi Costume
First of all, I think the price for this costume is very reasonable, considering that it came in high quality. The costume includes; The top, skirt, suspenders which are separate from the costume itself and gloves. Ryuko only wears one glove but I received two gloves. ; u ;
I also gave my measurements so the costume was custom-made and it fit me perfectly, I am very happy about that!! I usually have trouble with my costumes and end up adjusting them. Fabric is listed as uniform cloth and I think it is thick and suitable for this kind of a costume. Nothing is shiny about this costume, which is the biggest plus to this costume. I really hate shiny materials in cosplay costumes, unless the costume is supposed to be shiny.
I wasn’t notified when this costume was shipped out, so I’m not sure how long it took for it to get done, but I received the items in less than a month. You have no idea how awesome this is, I have had many bad experiences with other cosplay sites before because of this. ;___;
According to the site, the costume needs about 7-12 days to process and 3-7 days to arrive at your home. I’m really pleased with it~! ; u ;
QQ图片20160422173737_副本
I received the wigs from this site as well. Unlike it is shown, it arrived unstyled, which I think is a good thing, so I could style them according to my face proportions. I had a bit trouble and ended up making the wig too short for the character, but please forgive me ; u ;
Apart from my mistake, nothing was wrong with the wig. I found it high quality as well, because literally no hair fell out as I styled it. There were a lot of hair too, so the wig cap never showed up.
If you are curious about the photoshoot, I will be posting my photos from now on.
Enjoy!

This one is a blooper actually!
But Edniz really liked it so I wanted to publish it too. ; u ;
What do you think about the photos? I think Edniz did a great job and capturing my photos even if I didn’t suit this character. I will be posting more photos on my page in future.
I also can’t wait to cosplay Nonon from Kill la Kill next!
I will keep you updated, so stay tuned!
Love you and bye bye!

Here’s Why Zootopia is Disney’s Most Groundbreaking Movie Ever!

Zootopia-Disney

At first glance it might seem that Zootopia is your regular garden-variety animated flick with a few laughs and “yay” moments for the kids. However, once you get into it you realize it might not only be this year’s best animated film so far, it sets a few new milestones for Disney as well. It’s not just for the kids, but holds messages for adults also. And, it is frigging entertaining at that. So, here goes, here are some reasons we are absolutely and irrevocably in love with Zootopia!

A badass female lead character  – some of us have grown up watching Disney movies that have told us stories about princesses who found their princes. Well, we’ve had great movies like Tangled which have also followed on the same lines. Along comes  rookie bunny police officer Judy Hopps, who is on her heels, crime fighting and trying to prove herself. But, the best thing about her- she is refreshing “prince-free”. She isn’t the damsel in distress who needs rescuing and that’s a change we are seeing over at Disney!

And other adorable characters  – The other characters are also interesting in their own rights. Be it fast-talking Nick Wilde, or attitude laden Chief Bogo and even Gazelle with her diva syndrome – each characters have been extremely well-etched.

Zootopia-Dosney(2)

It has an intelligent script – Let’s talk about the script. If you go deep enough, the movie might not just be a story but a take on very real issues. It talks about prejudices. But, it does it without compromising on being fun for the kiddies.

It’s packed with Easter eggs we love – Now, we don’t want to spoil it for you, so keep your eyes open the next time you re-watch the film. It’s buzzing with Easter eggs and references that makes your geek heart giggle. Yes, even one that probably hints at  a future Frozen movie.

The best voice casting one could ask for – Now can we talk about spot on voice casting? When else has a voice cast been so perfect? Ginnifer Goodwin perfectly brings to life Judy Hopps and Jason Bateman adds the perfect amount of snazzy to Nick Wilde. And, Shakira’s Gazelle totally reminds us of her. We can hardly imagine other voice actors being cast for any of the characters.

Zootopia-Disney(3)

It reaches out to the furry community –  Yes, he furry community is finally being recognized. The marketing for the movie is totally aimed at them – definitely a first for Disney.

It’s cosplayer’s paradise – So many amazing characters definitely mean a party for cosplayers. It seems as though Disney has even thought of the cosplay community in some way. No wonder, it’s a hot favorite at conventions this year.

It’s long for a Disney film, but who’s complaining? – For a Disney film or an animated film, it’s pretty long at 108 minutes. But, seriously we don’t mind at all, because there is not one dull moment in this action-packed flick!

Hi guys! Long time, no see. I’ve been very, very busy recently with school and my part-time job. I just finally got the chance to write this up.
So I applied for sponsorship with Cosplay sky a month or so ago since I’ve been buying from them for quite a while and have been generally satisfied with the quality and service provided.
They’re very affordable for me, being a student who needs to save for the impending future, and are all worthwhile the price.
I was very glad when they accepted my application, and naturally, chose to go with Umi Sonoda’s Wonderful Rush cosplay, as it’s something I’ve been wanting for a while. So here’s my review!
Quality: 9/10
The overall quality of this cosplay is very, very good. It’s well-made, and the fabric of most of the cosplay is made out of polyester cotton, I believe? It’s my favourite fabric to have for cosplays because it doesn’t wrinkle too easily, sits well and doesn’t look yucky in photos.
My only critique is a few loose strings, but I suppose that is pretty normal for things that are made in bulk! I just worry for the buttons falling off, that’s all (but that isn’t the first time I’ve had a cosplay with loose buttons – it’s quite common, eheh;;). As always, Cosplay sky’s cosplay quality is commendable and I’m quite happy with what I received!

Accuracy: 9/10
Accuracy is always a difficult factor with cosplay that isn’t made by you. That’s the biggest struggle for me, because I’m practically useless with sewing things from scratch and using patterns.
9 times out of 10 will a cosplay not be 100% accurate when you order it off the internet – that’s my 10 cents worth today! However, Cosplay sky has some of the most accurate cosplays you can get.
I’ve ordered a Chiaki Nanami cosplay and Stylish Energy Rin cosplay from here before and been really happy with the level of accuracy for them, especially Chiaki’s, since there are so many on the internet you look at and just go, ‘…What?’
This cosplay was also pretty accurate. I only gave this a 9/10 – not because I’m stingy, no – but because the fabric they make the sash out of isn’t the best choice. The sash is originally a see-through fabric, however, they used satin, so it doesn’t really suit the outfit as well as it could. This is only a minor problem for me, though, because it isn’t difficult to get your hands on some fabric to make the sash on your own. It’s only minor – and I don’t think many people would mind this slight difference, anyway.

Fit: 8/10
Let me make a point: don’t order a set size if you want your cosplay to fit you exactly. Get a custom size made if you’re really dead-set on it, because ordering one of the ‘free’ sizes means it may not fit as nicely as you want. Make sure you ALWAYS check your measurements before ordering, too!
For me, it’s really a hit or miss with fit. I struggle mostly with skirts (either they’re too big… or too small. Why is there no in between. Why). That was the only issue with fitting this cosplay. The skirt was really loose, so it was too low down and I’d have to roll it. I mean, that can easily be altered – and if you don’t mind that difference, just go for a set size as I do. That was the only issue I had with sizing for this.
Everything else fit pretty well, which is a relief. I know my body proportions are pretty dumb in comparison to the stereotypical, female shape, so I expected something to not fit me too well. Just be aware of that, guys!

Price: 10/10
This costume would usually cost £39.99. To be quite frank with you, most Wonderful Rush cosplays out there usually cost £50+ so this is a good deal. I think it’s worth it’s pricing, since it pretty much exceeds the standards for ‘cheaper’ cosplay, which is why I love Cosplay sky so much. I really do recommend those who can’t afford so much and are looking for a cosplay that isn’t a satin-icky-mess to buy from here, because it’s worthwhile. Personally, I find eBay too risky when it comes to purchasing cosplay; at least I know my products from Cosplay sky will arrive on time!!
Customer service: 10/10
The staff on Cosplay sky, in all my experiences, have always been friendly and informative. If you ever have any questions, or even complaints about their products, it’s always important to email them about it as I’m sure they’d be willing to help out. To be frank, the arrival of this cosplay caught me by surprise as it came quite early! I was told a longer time, however it came within two to three weeks of me applying. Most cosplay from Cosplay sky takes around 1-3 weeks (depending on how much, and whether it’s a wig or costume). Cosplay sky makes things on order so you usually have to wait a week or so for it to process. Shipping is usually fast and costs around $10 (from memory) when you order a cosplay, which is hardly anything when you’re making a large order. I like the price of the shipping because sometimes, things can just get too expensive when you have to pay the product price and like, $30-something along with it. 🙁
Cosplay sky’s customer service, from my experience, has been excellent!
Overall rating: 9.5/10

Thank you for reading my review!
(Sorry for the gross photos, I broke out the night before and didn’t get the chance to reshoot. The cosplay isn’t complete, so I only took these photos to show the cosplay off! When it is complete, I’ll get better ones and replace the ones here c: )
