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. Mary's website - Firefly Path Related: Superfans - Sexy Cosplay 16 x 20 Poster Visit the Monster Island Newsstand

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

Image
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?

Star Wars At 40 - Darth Vader Had Emotional Problems ... Ya Think?

Image
I think that it is safe to assume that Darth Vader (aka Anakin Skywalker) may have had a few 'issues'. He left his mother at a tender age to join the Jedi only to seek her out as a teen, he finds her after she was captured by Sandpeople then she dies in his arms. He got a little upset and went on a killing spree. He always thought that his fellow Jedi were holding him back so he turned to the dark side and slaughters his comrades, kills his own wife and tries to barbecue his best friend and mentor only to end up becoming a half-machine half-man monster with a bad Asthma problem. Most people may be a little off center after experiencing stuff like that.

From Comet TV Big Trouble in Little China remains one of my favorite movies to come out of the ’80s, which is why I’m happy to report that a sequel is in the works from original writer/director John Carpenter… though it’s probably not what you had in mind. A new limited comic book series, Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack, is on the way from BOOM! Studios. Carpenter is penning the four issues alongside Borderlands 2 writer Anthony Burch, with art by Jorge Corona. The new series is set to take place in the year 2020 at a time when Ching Dai — the unseen God of the East from the original film — has unleashed the forces of Hell on Earth. 60-year-old Jack Burton is the only one who can save the world, and he sets out from Florida for his final ride aboard the Pork-Chop Express in order to do so. The first issue premieres this September, and you can check out the awesome cover below. With talk of the Dwayne Johnson-led reboot going cold as of late, here’s hoping that 20th C

Wonder Woman: Power, Grace, Wisdom and Wonder

Power, grace, wisdom and wonder: inspiring qualities intrinsic to one of the greatest Super Heroes of all time, known the world over as Wonder Woman. A revered and enduring DC archetype and a global symbol of strength and equality for more than 75 years—how and when did she come to be, and why did mankind’s welfare become so important to her? Director Patty Jenkins’ larger-than-life hero’s journey “Wonder Woman” tells the long-awaited origin story of Diana, the only child of Themyscira, a secret island gifted to her people from the king of the gods himself, Zeus. Hailing from the world of Amazons, Diana has been preparing for combat her whole life. But to become a true warrior, she will need to carry the courage of her convictions—and an arsenal like no other—onto the most harrowing battlefield the world has ever known. “The time is absolutely right to bring Wonder Woman to movie audiences,” says Jenkins. “Fans have been waiting a long time for this, but I believe people outside
