Cosplay: Attack on Titan

Friday 20th December 2013


Alias Cosplay strips down for Attack on Titan

Cosplay: Attack on TitanTitan Transformation! To become a female Titan for MCM London Comic Con I started out with muscle-printed leggings, a nude-toned leotard, gel bra fillets, fabric pens and paint. After planning out the design, I altered the leotard before cutting up the gel fillets and fixed them and the gel bra to the leotard and leggings to accentuate certain muscles. I painted around these, adding detail with the fabric pens and paint, making sure to blend the colours so the leotard matched the printed leggings as close as possible.

Cosplay: Attack on TitanI did my make-up with a mixture of Ben Nye and Snazaroo face paints, sealing it with a fixative and adding a little painted latex on the cheeks and collar-bone.

The end result was a lot more creepy looking than I'd originally planned and I'm really happy with it, it was a lot fun being a Titan for the day and having a little guy to swing around too. Though this Titan is hoping for warmer weather next time she transforms!

The Devil is a Part-Timer

There's a difference at MgRonald's
The show is a comment on real life, on the way we’re pressured to give up childish things – like, say, becoming an Evil Dark Lord of the world – and focus on the adult world of work.

MIRAI MIZUE AND JAPANESE ART ANIMATION

Jasper Sharp on how wonders will never cease
The tradition of the solitary animator continued past the establishment of an anime industry, with notable luminaries such as Yoji Kuri, Kihachiro Kawamoto and Tadanari Okamoto positioning themselves outside it and creating works that challenged what could be done with the medium, often using other media such as stop-motion and silhouette.

Giovanni's Island

Jonathan Clements on this season’s classy anime feature
Ever willing to poke around in the interstices of history for children’s stories of the war, the Japanese animation industry alights here on the true story of Hiroshi Tokuno, on whose life story this film is partly based.

Spyair: Back with the Best

Tom Smith on the return of one of anime's most popular rock bands
So where do the guys go from here? On their biggest domestic tour, that’s where! At least that was the plan, but halfway through the mostly soldout schedule, vocalist IKE suddenly takes to Twitter to make an announcement that would shock everyone, including his bandmates. The message simply stated; “I will leave SPYAIR”.

Short Peace

Jasper Sharp on the anthology movie currently touring the UK
There have been three Japanese works nominated in the Academy Awards category for Best Animated Short Film over the past ten years or so: Koji Yamamura’s Mt. Head (2002), Kunio Kato’s The House of Small Cubes (2008) – so far the country’s only winner – and most recently Shuhei Morita’s Possessions (2013). For all that, it remains pretty difficult for most viewers who aren’t regulars on the specialised festival circuit to catch such examples of cutting-edge animation.

Keiichi Hara Interview

Andrew Osmond talks to the director of Shin-chan and Colorful
As the eleventh Japan Touring Film Programme heads through Britain (see here for venues and here for our write-up), we took the opportunity to speak to the director of the anime entry, the feature film Colorful. Keiichi Hara has been working in anime for thirty-odd years, gaining experience through working with two of Japan’s most popular kids’ characters, Doraemon and Crayon Shin-chan. He then graduated to his own projects, and is now a freelancer who pushes at the boundaries of what anime can be.

Robocop vs Anime Cyborgs

Andrew Osmond on the history of man-machine interfaces
RoboCop is thrown into interesting perspective by looking at his anime cousins. In Japan, RoboCop is one of a crowd. Two of anime’s greatest poster icons – Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell and Tetsuo in Akira – are or become cyborgs. Moreover, a man-turned-robot was an anime hero back in 1963. We’re talking about 8th Man, shown in America as Tobor the Eighth Man. It’s a policeman who, yes, gets murdered by a crime gang, then resurrected in a robot body.
Valentine’s Day is just round the corner and whether you’re spending it alone or with that special someone, we’ve got a selection of titles perfect for the occasion.
