Cosplay costume test pics: Virginia as Kim Possible

Veidt Virginia Kim Possible

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.

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.

I love Virginia. Shes makes any picture op of yours a success.

But as far as having her pose as Kim Possible, I dont know. I remember watching the cartoon and wasn’t see something like 12 or 13 years old?

You mentioned Alias and I can see that is these photos, or even Battlestar Galactica as someone guessed in your article. I can even see this as possible even a Tomb Raider/Lara Croft type of shoot.

I always thought she was like 15…and with the show having ended in 2007, we’re well past legal in 2011.

Still, probably need to come up with a Hit-Girl disclaimer for characters like this (and there’s at least one other one coming up), that the photos are only intended to depict adult versions of characters, regardless of stated/implied age in any/all other media.

You could be right and she was apx. 15. I never really imagined her much older then 12/13. I never was a big fan of the show, but I also never thought of her growing up. Especially since its still on in reruns on a channel here at home.

But please keep the photos coming. I’ve enjoyed everyone that you have put up. I also can see a grown up and fully legal Kim in 2011 thanks to you.

Actually, as an adult “crime-fighting cheerleader with a website” (that’s from the episode “The Ron Factor” by the way), Kim could well be carrying a gun and a sword.

Seriously, though, most of my favourite TV shows and movies remain old Disney cartoons, and Kimmie here is it the top of the list. So as an avid devotee of the show, I can say for sure that her mission clothes included 3/4 length sleeves, leather gloves, a tan ammo belt with a holster for her hair dryer, and pocket pants roughly akin to olive drab. And in the show, it was easy to keep her pants on her, even though they were about 4 sizes too big for her, not skin-tight like these, because all they had to do was draw them staying on her. In reality, though, her pants would literally be falling down around her ankles, and I must say, Virginia would look simply fantastic like that! Better still, have Virginia dress up in – and out of – Kim Possible’s cheerleader uniform :)
