Another take on the central character of DC’s Blackest Night series (as far as I’m concerned), Carol Ferris aka Star Sapphire, the most powerful of the Violet Lantern Corps. I love the character, like this costume, and wanted more pics. Still no word as to whether Ferris will appear in costume in Martin Campbell’s upcoming Green Lantern movie, or even who might play her, so who knows how long it’ll be until we see a proper, live-action interpretation of the villainess.
Star Sapphire, despite playing a significant role in DC’s event series of the year, and having one of the skimpiest costumes in comics, hasn’t really reaped much in terms of merchandising. She’s getting a new action figure from DC Direct, in their Blackest Night line, but it’s just an old figure re-cast in translucent plastic. Sadly, there’s been no noise as yet on a 13″ figure, Tonner doll, or even a DC Universe Classics figure…not that anybody would be able to find one (thanks Mattel.)
More pics after the jump!
A quick request. If you like these pics, or any of the other cosplay sets i’ll be posting soon, please do consider forwarding links/forum posting/social bookmarking/whatever. Virtually nobody knows about this site, which would suit me fine, except for the ads you see on the site. Whatever revenue those generate goes to a couple charities I care about (no, nothing political…animal shelters and dog and rodent rescues that operate in California.) What’s in it for you: if traffic improves to the point where the site is actually contributing something to those orgs, we’ll do a lot more of these, on a more consistent basis.
Also, there’s a Chemo cosplay set, that may sound horrific if you know who Chemo is, but it actually turned out to be the bubbly green sex. I have no idea how i’ll be able to post it here without censoring the hell out of it, but will figure something out.
Alan Moore may find the whole thing sad, but I’ve been digging the Blackest Night. There’s a Bat crossover issue I’m looking forward to in particular – Catwoman #83, due January 2010. It’s already been leaked that the issue will feature the original Black Mask resurrected as a Black Lantern, but I’m still holding out hope for Selina being recruited into the Violet Lanterns.
Was this worth revisiting? Do leave your thoughts in ze comments. Also, thanks to T. for shooting and Jessica for modeling the outfit and looking awesome.
