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.

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.

Costume: http://cosplaysky.co.uk/kill-la-kill-ryuko-matoi-cosplay-costume-uk.html

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!

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 ;

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!

 

Reviews for LoveLive! Wonderful Rush Umi Sonoda Cosplay Costume Dress

tumblr_inline_nowo6bfjZg1swfxr3_500_副本
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!
tumblr_inline_nowo3u5wlF1swfxr3_500
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.
tumblr_inline_nowo4l1FW81swfxr3_500
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!
tumblr_inline_nowo6bfjZg1swfxr3_500
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
I hope this review was helpful in your decisions! Please make sure you go like Cosplay sky’s Facebook page, as they always have good deals and giveaways on.
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: )

Deadpool Movie Review

A super-funny satirical take in the superhero genre and a motor-mouth wisecracking anti-hero, Deadpool is a near-perfect cinematic experience! 

图片1

Right from the get-go we know that Wade Wilson is not our average garden variety super hero – he’s blatant with a twisted sense of humor. Deadpool is a movie that is set to take a dig at all superhero films with its tongue in cheek humor and as soon as the curtains lift, we know it takes its “un-serious” identity very seriously. You never know when you’ll get to see another opening scene of similar level of genius as “Angel of the Morning” playing to rolling credits as superhero clichés against a slo-mo gunshot scene next, so you might as well convince yourself that this is going to be epic! We are told a “Hot Chick” and a “British Villain” are in order – like every freaking superhero flick.

图片2

So here’s how the plot goes – Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is an ex-mercenary who currently runs errands and takes down goons for a price. He meets Vanessa and the two have a whirlwind romance, till Wilson discovers he has a swiftly spreading cancer. Determined to keep Vanessa out of his worries, Wade volunteers for a rogue experiment that is supposed to treat his cancer and give him superpowers. However, the experiment goes awry when he discovers that the rogue team is set to create super slaves and are unperturbed by their patient’s sufferings. Deformed and scarred after his survival, Wilson takes on the avatar of “Deadpool” as he sets out to seek revenge on Ajax (Ed Skrien) who is primarily responsible for his plight!

With the big scale promotions that the movie had undertaken, and Ryan Reynolds being practically everywhere (be it TV shows or Comic Cons) with his Deadpool mode on – the movie definitely has a lot of expectations riding on it. Especially fans of the comic book series have been intently watching out for it with a certain amount of skepticism that whether or not it will indeed be able to do justice to its source. But, instead of opting for a linear origin story, Deadpool surpasses every expectation with its non-linear timeline and unapologetic approach. It embraces its R rating and doesn’t hold back at any point- neither with the bloodbath nor with the adult humor.

图片3

The side characters have been developed strongly as well. X-Men members Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus pitching in to help our hero and not-so-subtle references to Wolverine, establishes the Marvel connection. And, the frequent 90s music inside jokes will definitely make the 90s babies happy! Basically, this movie has something lined up for everyone and 108 minutes of pure edge of your seat humor and action.

 

We can’t wait for the franchise to catch on after this epic origin story. Deadpool is a sure addition to the superhero obsessions this year – we should be convinced by now that the Deadpool addiction is hard to die down anytime soon. Get your own Deadpool costume at www.cosplaysky.co.uk and join in on the bandwagon before the next Deadpool movie hits the screens!

Top 2016 Movie Characters to Consider In Your Cosplay Plans

With so many upcoming movies in 2016, it’s rather hard to catch up and make costumes for all the characters that we are eyeing.

If you want to cos a certain character from a movie,then you better plan   early and start gathering all the materials for your cosplay costumes .

To give you an idea about the hype of superhero movies in 2016, here are some of the movies which will be released this year and their protagonists ..

1. Deadpool – February 12, 2016

bdeadpool

Ryan Reynolds will be reprising his role as Deadpool in his own movie. The Merc with a Mouth is definitely going to be a cosplay favorite this year.

Deadpool is a great character, though he may not be really tagged as a hero since he is more of an anti-hero and has his own agendas. Deadpool is witty, sarcastic yet deadly once he puts on his mask and is a force to reckon with.

2.Doctor Strange – November 4, 2016

Doctor Strange

Who better to play the role of surgeon turned sorcerer than Benedict Cumberbatch? Doctor Strange follows the Sorcerer Supreme, he used to be an egotistical surgeon who was given a second shot at life when a sorcerer saves him and trains him. Now he is a sorcerer dedicated to fight and rid the world of evil.

 3.Captain America: Civil War – May 6, 2016

Captain America

What happens when our superheroes are divided due to a certain law? That’s what will start the feud between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), how will it end? We hope to see good fight scenes from America’s favorite hero and the genius philanthropist.

4. Batman VS Superman – March 25, 2016

Batman

This will be like an epic battle between two heroes, Batman VS Superman – who would win in the end? Aside from Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman will also be starring in the film. This would then be the start for the Justice League movies.

5.X-Men: Apocalypse – May 27, 2016

X men

Apocalypse, just the name can bring shivers to anyone – it means the end of the world. The X Men will come face to face with their strongest enemy yet, the immortal Apocalypse. The younger versions of our favorite X-Men such as Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Gambit (Channing Tatum) will be battling against the odds. We also get to see Jennifer Lawrence once more as the sultry deceptive shape-shifting villain Mystique.

6.Gambit – October 7, 2016

Gambit

Just like Ryan Reynolds who was all hyped up about his role as Deadpool, it was the same way for Channing Tatum when he was chosen to play the role of Gambit. There has been little information leaked about this movie so all we can do is wait.

7.Suicide Squad – August 5, 2016

suside

Now this is a really interesting movie since the main “protagonists” are not heroes but the villains rather. Task Force X also known as the Suicide Squad is formed by a team of super villains to take on high risk tasks for the United Stated government. Jared Leto as the Joker is something that I personally look forward to watching.

Have you seen any of the trailers for these movies? If not then it’s never too late to check them out. Plan to cos any of these characters? Then get your creative juices, you still have lots of time left to prepare.  If you are planning to purchase high quality costumes  then CosplaySky UK has all that you need to complete your cosplay plans. Check out their website for detailed, high quality but affordable costumes => http:// CosplaySky.co.uk
