New superheroine cosplay pic set featuring Kat as alien girl Green Lantern Laira Omoto. You know, last time i posted on Thursday, i was riding a bit of a high, and looking forward to the weekend. Then everything went to hell…i was apparently ratted out to the morality police (more on this in an upcoming post) , lost $50 because nobody went to see Green Lantern, and then there was this. The absolute worst shooting experience in the history of the site…fuck me, i was seconds away from sepuku.
You’ll likely note that the makeup looks a bit dodgy, to put it kindly. That would be due to the fact that the alleged makeup artist we hired for the shoot, who assured us they could do the bodypaint work, showed up with a non-working airbrush. So it turned into a 2 1/2 hour fingerpainting session, and still looked horrible. Kat was a trooper through the whole fucking ordeal, but i wanted to find a train to run over me head.
More after the jump. Under 18 or offended by bathing suit areas, you’ll probably love this more.
Aside from generally being awesome and sexy, Laira is the appointed protector of sector 112, and the master fighter / martial artist of the Green Lantern Corps. Sadly, they didn’t use her in the movie (guess it was far more important to turn Kilowog into a potato made of boring, and not use Henry Rollins to voice him), so she’s probably not getting an action figure anytime soon.
I liked the Green Lantern movie. Liked. They actually did a respectable job of conveying the rather complex backstory, Blake Lively was much better than expected, and Mark Strong utterly nailed Sinestro…for all 7 minutes of screen-time he got. Don’t know that i’m going to run out and see it again anytime soon, but i wish it well and hope for a sequel that pays off on that mid-credits final scene.
Thanks Kat for enduring the hell that was this, and keeping me from swallowing my own tongue.
