You're so great at what you do! You make me want to try to cosplay. I wouldn't be very good at it, but I'd like to try.
You actually have a really good face/look for anime characters. You should try cosplay. My first time cosplaying was pretty poor and looked silly but I’ve always thought that’s part of the fun and sometimes “bad cosplay” is fantastic.
Because Thor is the son of Odin it's his identity not some mask and cape as is with most superheroes. Passing on the Mjölnir is one thing and it doesn't bother me to replace him with a female. Especially since Asgardians have female warriors. But it's the way they're going about it that I disagree with. He's always been good now all of a sudden they're going to have him fuck up and ruin his reputation so they can go in a new direction?
Okay, I can agree with that. Now I haven’t been consistent with my Thor issues but if he has (at least recently) been a pinacle of virtue and they are going to tarnish that for the sake of this storyline. I can understand the upset. Another bit though, is that we don’t know entirely how this is going to be done. A theory is that it will be Angela and if that is the case at least they are keeping it within the family. As I said before, I think it comes down to writing and that especially means in terms of origin/transition.
They keep saying this is not a different person, it just is Thor but let’s see how true that holds. Another thing is, I wouldn’t expect this to be permanent, rest assured your Thor will return.
How do you feel about marvel making Thor a woman now? I don't think I like it.
Well I see two sides to this. On the one hand I like the idea of characters being titles that can be passed down. It allows for more dramatic story telling and less “ageless” characters. It allows for diversity, such as in this case. However, on the other hand, if this diversity is merely for the sake of diversity(Marvel attempting to be controversial and/or just pandering to a female audience) then I have an issue with that.
Whatever the case if it is well written I will be happy, I think that is what matters and differentiates between good and bad changes in a series.
i find your youtube videos very interesting, i love how you refer to pop culture as a means to explain how the topic (of the video) can be found and expressed in our time.
Thank you, I really enjoy making videos and wish I was working on the more often. I’ve always loved film and I love philosophy. My thought is always that if I can convey an idea in a simple and related way then I understand it well. Also it gives me the chance to explore multiple things I love.
Don't think of it as self glorification, but rather a means of making it easier on those interested in following your cosplay journey. I am one of the, I'm sure many, who followed you after AX. I felt weird and stalkerish. When someone gives you a card and says follow my work it's inviting but feeling like you're invading someone's personal life it feels un welcomed and weird. TBH I found you on ig before tumblr but was like nope, don't be a creep. I'm not a creep I'm just interested in cosplay.
Wow that is a really lovely way of putting it. Know that I never thought you or anyone else to be weird or creepy, it’s incredibly honoring to have anyone be interested in me for any reason, so thank you. I suppose also it is true that when someone is interested in me for my cosplay they may be quite disinterested in my personal life and so to keep the two separate would make sense.
During the con and after I have had people ask me about having a card or a cosplay page in which they could contact me through or follow me. Rather I offer my personal pages. I don’t have these things in part because I haven’t considered that I warrant such self-glorification but I do see many people moving forward with these things seemingly easily. My question is if you do have a cosplay page(or any sort of “fan” page) what was your thinking behind creating it and if not why haven’t you?
JESUS CHRIST I finally found you! I've been searching high and low on this fricken website for over an hour. You young man are attractive as can be and I'm saying this with all the overwhelming confidence the screen of my laptop gives me. You are also very deep and poetic and if that's not proof that there is a god then I don't know what is. And next time you cosplay as captain America. You better do the scene where he comes out of the machine shirtless, do you hear me? Have a good day, Blondie.
You have my word that at Anime-Expo 2015 I will do shirtless cap cosplays! Thank you for your massive compliments by the way! Did we meet at AX? I can’t seem to find a photo of you on your page to be sure.
Loved your cosplay for ax this year! You rocked the captain look, do you have a favorite marvel movie?
Firstly thank you very much!! Wow a favorite Marvel film? Hmmm I’m assuming we’re sticking strictly to MCU marvel films(otherwise Spider-Man 2001 might steal the show for me) I consider Iron Man1, Avengers and Winter Solider all to be a level above the rest of the films for the way they effect the MCU as a whole and the freedom the films seem to have. But I think at this point I’m still going to have to say Avengers itself is my favorite MCU film.
