EMPOWERED cosplay, now with painted-on latex!At the Toronto Comic Arts Festival last weekend, ace photographer (and karaoke-er*) Paul Hillier was kind enough to drop off some prints of a seriously badass Empowered cosplay shoot he had arranged. He took the concept of Emp cosplay to a whole 'nother level, via an exciting new frontier in costuming: painted-on latex! Not only is this arguably the ideal cosplay medium to approximate Emp's unearthly supersuit, it's definitely the best medium to depict the tearing of the suit's membrane (as seen in a photo emulating an Empowered cover, complete with logo).EMPOWERED cosplay, now with painted-on latex!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

One day, humon was surfing the internet.
She was just looking at her favorite pages when all of a sudden a new tab opened up.
She was confused, since she didn't click on any link whatsoever. The tab didn't show anything, just a white screen. When she tried to close the tab, nothing happened. She kept pressing the X to close it, but instead the tab turned to full size. Suddenly, the white screen of the tab turned completely black.
It wasn't only the tab screen that turned black, all the button and everything else on her screen did the same.
Even her mouse disappeared off the screen.
After a little while, she decided to turn her computer off because she simply thought it was broken.
This was a fatal mistake.
Out of nowhere, a full screen picture of :iconcaptainfanclub: appeared on the black screen.
It was most unexpected.

The Tick vs. Romance

They call themselves the Pri-Mates (a tarsier, a howler monkey, a chimp and a gorilla). They like to steal food and shiny things and enjoy using their powers for chaos and destruction.

Meeting Weird Al!Last night I got one of the thrills of my life when I got to meet Weird Al Yankovic backstage after his show here in Minneapolis! I've been an Al fan since I first heard the "Weird Al" In 3-D album in 1984 and I've been a big fan ever since. I only have two artists' full libraries on my iPhone, The Beatles and Al. So yeah, I'm a fan.Meeting Weird Al!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not only did I get to see him perform live (my fifth time seeing him), but I got to give him and his drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz copies of my "Meeting Al" piece:
Both Al and Jon were awesome and I can't thank them enough for allowing me and my friend Natalie to meet them. I want to say a special thanks to Jon, who could not have been kinder or friendlier, for responding to Natalie's e-mail about possibly meeting the king of parody. Jon suprised me by saying "he doesn't know you're here, he's gonna love this". I was really honored to be able to give them both print copies of my piece.

CommentsPlease only add constructive comments. The models are not whores. Just because a model shows her genital area, she is not a whore. The images presented in my portfolio, general represent the whole women.Comments3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe in showing the models face. It is the expressions, I am looking for. I do not like strict posing. You can see that in thousands of images on this site. I do like girl next door shots. The model always has fun in my shoots.
If the model wants to represent herself, in a more mature manner, I will go there. We are adults. The relationship between model and photographer is a business one. It is all fantasy. So, just sit back and relax.
