We shot some test costumes last week for a project proposal that will either get funded, or i’ll go pawn a kidney to see it happen. As it’s going to be a for-profit venture, we did some new costumes and obscure stuff in an effort to avoid the mighty fist of IP attorneys. This particular costume, inspired by the late, great Kim Possible, was so obscure nobody else got it. Or liked it. So it won’t be in the presentation, but fuck it, i liked it, so here.
The general consensus of the 2 other people who went through the pics: “Is that supposed to be Battlestar Galactica?” After explaining, all i got were ye olde frowns of disapproval. Like i’m some weirdo for watching Disney Channel cartoons long after it stops being age-appropriate; but if Fox isn’t ashamed of trying to cram fucking Black Eyed Peas and Glee down the throats of superbowl viewers, i guess i can own digging on old kids’ shows.
More pics after the jump.
The Kim Possible animated series debuted a year after the premiere of J.J. Abrams’ masterwork Alias; in addition to their shared espionage theme, both had similarly angular, supra-competent, intelligence operative heroines with dual lives, and both rose high above the conventions, and standard quality, of their genre. Very much looking forward to the eventual/likely inevitable reboots of both.
My favorite movie of 2010, Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go, came out on blu-ray and dvd this week. Worth mentioning because a.) virtually nobody saw it, and b.) Virginia has the exact same hairstyle here as Keira Knightley does in the move. Also mentioning it because i’m completely out of things to say about Kim Possible.
Thanks Virginia for wearing it, even if you had no idea what it was supposed to be. More cosplay stuff going up this week.
