TMNT, BATMOBILE, DWEEBCAST, DARK HELMET TURN OUT
Temecula, CA – Today more than any past time, the desire to be a hero, even a pretend hero, is greater thanat any other in our human cycle. Thankfully modern technology has made all our dreams come true while the real heroes partner unseen with forces such as Divine Intervention between the scenes. On Saturday, August 16 at M15, this reporter became a scribe to the second issue of Club Cosplay in Corona. This time the growing Cosplay scene for nerds like them featured a Transformer and an ‘origin shop’.
Following the highly successful first launch of Club Cosplay at M15 by Ivan Promotions earlier in the summer, this event was sandwiched between two geek events Friday and two events on Sunday, including SongHammer playing to three million gamer fans worldwide via internet, take that Rolling Stones in Rio [2 million record/beach]*.
This night also saw some old friends Paul Bahou with GF Melissa [Inverse band, The Infamous They] cosplaying Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood [ROTLA] and Jamaal Harley [Illnoise, Harley Gold] get his glitter eyeliner from a professional make-up artist in the green room. Over 60% of the crowd was brand new as this dress-up in costume club phenomena spreads. Walt Disney, now the owner of Marvel, is taking the entire Universe ‘on ice’ next year rather than the usual brunch of critters.
Let’s face it. With the state of the world and this country, who doesn’t yearn for a super hero to save us from ourselves?
