Mary (Haruka) - Women Of Fantasy

Mary (Haruka) from Houston, Texas

I am cosplay/costume designer/photographer. Most of my photo shoots are costume and fantasy related. I especially love fashion photography. I am experienced in working with a Varity of photographers who have different demands in the style of photo they desire. Because I am also a photographer, I have a good perception of what poses and angles would look most flattering. I am very comfortable behind and in front of the camera. My modeling style ranges from gothic to high fashion, punk, innocent, and glamour.

UFO - Fighting Aliens In A Super Sexy Future!

In the year 1980, a secret military organization named SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation) becomes operational. Its purpose is to defend the Earth from Aliens who've been coming to Earth and kidnapping humans. It is believed that these Aliens are a dying race, and are transplanting human body parts to extend their own lifespans.

SHADO's main headquarters is hidden beneath a film studio near London England. SHADO also has a base on the moon (Moonbase) and a fleet of submarines (Skydiver). Incoming UFO's are initially detected by an Earth orbiting satellite named SID (Space Intruder Detector). An initial interception attempt is made in space with three Interceptor craft launched from Moonbase. A second attempt is made in the Earth's atmosphere with a fighter plane (Sky One) launched from Skydiver. Landed UFO's are tracked down with ground Mobiles.

SHADO is run by the extremely dedicated Commander Ed Straker, and is overseen by General James Hende…

Mass UFO Sightings Over American Southwest Grow As Roswell Anniversary Nears.

In the first week of July 1947 a UFO reportedly crashed on a remote ranch outside Roswell, New Mexico. The crash, the recovery of the UFO and it's three extraterrestrial crew members and the alleged government cover up that followed are now the subject of both folklore and an overwhelming number of stories that range from pure conjecture to alleged eyewitness accounts. What many people don't know is that in the weeks prior to the event a mass wave of UFO sightings occurred across the American southwest as a sort of precursor to what was about to transpire in the remote New Mexico desert. Now some seventy years later a mass of UFO sighting reports are once again happening in the same region of this country leading many experts to ponder if history is about to repeat itself? Is a first contact situation immanent?

The Mighty Peking Man (1977)(Shaw Brothers Studio)

Written By: Ken Hulsey

It is amazing how Asian movie makers have always had a love affair with "King Kong." Just after original film made it's debut in 1933, the Japanese movie studio Shochiku released "Wasei Kingu Kongu", a direct rip-off of the American film, which featured a man in a monster costume (pre-Gojira) running amok. A mere five years later, in 1938, the same Japanese studio would release "Edo Ni Arawarita Kingu Kongu", which featured the giant ape during the samurai era. I have been informed that both of these films are lost and very little is known about them.

Star Wars At 40 - Sci Fi & Horror Actors / Actresses Talk Star Wars

Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca Speaks!)

KH - Your first Hollywood job was playing the Minotaur in Sinbad and the eye of the Tiger. Is it true you got the job because of a photoin a London newspaper?

PM - Yes, actually, the article was about people with big feet. A reporter noticed me and a much smaller mate of mine when he visited his sick mom in the hospital where I was working and photographed us walking together and took some pictures of my feet. I didn't win the big feet contest, but that eventually led to my role in Sinbad.

KH - Back when you were working on Star Wars: A New Hope did you get a sense that you were working on something special or did it just seem like the usual B-movie space opera?

PM - I'm not sure what the usual B-movie space opera would have been. I don't think my thinking went that deep at the time, I really just thought it was a B-movie....period. I really don't think anybody knew what we were about to become a part of.

KH - What was it like to be in …

Hey they got all the guns right? But what if you found out that the military was actually performing bizarre scientifc experiments in hopes of creating a supervirus to destroy mankind?
