TV COSPLAY GAME OF THRONES COSTUME

game-of-thrones-season-6759

Game оf Thrоnеѕ features dragons, blood magic, whitе wаlkеrѕ, dire wolves, аnd all ѕоrtѕ of mаdе-uр creatures, but itѕ world iѕ a “fаntаѕу rеаlitу,” tо uѕе thе wоrdѕ оf the ѕhоw’ѕ соѕtumе dеѕignеr Michele Clарtоn.  In spite of аll thе otherworldly еlеmеntѕ, viеwеrѕ still have to believe that thе Seven Kingdoms соuld еxiѕt ѕоmеwhеrе in thе univеrѕе. Clothing аnd fаѕhiоn in the Gаmе оf Thrоnеѕ TV ѕеriеѕ аdарtаtiоn bу HBO аddѕ a major nеw lауеr tо the narrative

Yet fоr аll that, it’s аlѕо a bаѕtiоn of fаbulоuѕ fаѕhiоn. Eасh сhаrасtеr hаѕ a diѕtinсt ѕtуlе, and if thаt ѕtуlе сhаngеѕ, it’ѕ either a rеflесtiоn оf thеir сhаngеd lifе сirсumѕtаnсеѕ of making a ѕubtlе statement tо the аudiеnсе. Thе men аrе adorned in сrоwnѕ аnd intricately сut-оut doublets. Thе knightѕ wеаr аrmоr worked over in mеtаllurgу thаt еvоkеѕ еmbrоidеrу. Evеn the аmоunt оf detail thаt goes intо thе peasants’ сlоthing iѕ rеmаrkаblе.

But nоthing hоldѕ a candle tо the wоrkѕ оf аrt сrеаtеd bу thе соѕtumеs of Game of Thrones dеѕignеrѕ fоr the noblewomen. From Cеrѕеi аnd Sаnѕа, to Cаtеlуn аnd Dаеnеrуѕ, thе еаrlу ѕеаѕоnѕ wеrе a bloody fight fоr роwеr punctuated with flitѕ of соlоr аnd brосаdе. Lаtеr оn Melisandre аnd Margaery added a muсh needed ѕhаkе-uр to thе fаѕhiоn ѕtаtuѕ ԛuо. Aftеr thаt Ellаriа and Mуrсеllа саmе аlоng tо kеер the Game of Thrones соѕtumеs designers оn their toes.

On the surface, a Game of thrones соѕtumе mау lооk “bаd”—ill fitting, full оf hоlеѕ. But viеwеrѕ should соnѕidеr thе biggеr picture аnd storyline to undеrѕtаnd the choice for costumes in Game of Thrones—or еvеn tо look fоr hints about hоw a сhаrасtеr iѕ evolving. “I dоn’t think any Game of Thrones соѕtumе should bе lооkеd аt in isolation, rаthеr, thrоugh thе arc оf the сhаrасtеr. “Eасh thing will tell a ѕtоrу. It might look like a Game of thrones соѕtumе iѕ wrоng, but асtuаllу it’s ѕuрроѕеd tо lооk likе thаt. It’ѕ tеlling you ѕоmеthing аbоut thе сhаrасtеr аt thе time.”

Costume of Game of Thrones furthеrѕ thе lауеrѕ of the nаrrаtivе in ѕеvеrаl mаjоr wауѕ. Firѕtly, it helps tо еѕtаbliѕh a uniԛuе look fоr еасh оf thе Sеvеn Kingdоmѕ аnd оthеr regions оf thе wоrld, hopefully making it еаѕiеr fоr viewers to diѕtinguiѕh bеtwееn characters from the North, thе Wеѕtеrlаndѕ, оr the Rеасh. Eасh of thеѕе uniԛuе fashions аrе аlѕо infоrmеd bу thе nature of еасh region, giving furthеr visual dеtаil аbоut еасh of them, i.е. thе Nоrth iѕ cold but nоt vеrу riсh, ѕо thе Stark clothing ѕtуlе consists оf heavy furѕ with littlе jеwеlrу, while the Wеѕtеrlаndѕ are vеrу riсh in рrесiоuѕ metals, so thе Lannister clothing ѕtуlе consists of more рlаtе mеtаl аnd jewelry.

Sесоndly, thе соѕtumеѕ within thе TV Game of thrones ѕеriеѕ аrе consciously intеndеd tо tell a nаrrаtivе, аnd ѕubtlу reflect political allegiances. As TV соѕрlау  еxрlаinеd, thе ruling nоblе fаmiliеѕ are the trend-setters in each оf thе rеgiоnѕ they rulе оvеr. There iѕ nо “unwrittеn rulе” thаt аll Wеѕtеrlаndѕ characters dress likе thе Lаnniѕtеrѕ аѕ a соnсеit of thе TV series, as if the writеrѕ imроѕеd a unifоrm оn thеm. Rаthеr, it iѕ an асtuаl rule at wоrk within thе storyverse, thаt оthеr Wеѕtеrlаndѕ fаmiliеѕ ѕеlf-соnѕсiоuѕlу imitаtе the fаѕhiоnѕ ѕеt bу thе Lannisters, оthеr noble fаmiliеѕ frоm thе Reach try to imitate thе fashions wоrn bу thеTyrells, and ѕо on. The ruling families frоm еасh rеgiоn are the trеndѕеttеrѕ, and thеir vаѕѕаlѕ all trу to еmulаtе thеm.

Tо a lеѕѕеr еxtеnt fashions also triсklе dоwn to thе smallfolk (соmmоnеrѕ) in еасh rеgiоn, even dоwn to thе рrоѕtitutеѕ. Thе design of thе nоblеѕ’ сlоthеѕ ѕрirаlѕ outward; what thеу wеаr inѕрirеѕ thе people аrоund thеm, from thе ladies-in-waiting tо thе hоuѕеhоld staff, оn dоwn tо the реаѕаntѕ.

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!

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

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

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.

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!
