In addition to my adoration of all the creatures from The Dark Crystal, I am also a huge fan of Labyrinth, another amazing Jim Henson movie. I mean, how can you not love David Bowie as the Goblin King?! But since we are talking creatures in this column I wanted to spotlight Ludo this week, one of my favorite creatures in the movie that I would love to have as my own companion.
We’ve done it before and we’ll do it again, but here’s our NYCC Cosplay Top 5 brought to you from your friendly neighborhood Evil Geeks….hope you enjoy!
There were so many insanely amazing costumes at comic con that it’s really hard to determine the “best” but I can definitely give you my favorites. For me, it’s very important that you actually physically resemble the person your imitating. So if you have an incredibly elaborate costume but look nothing like the character, your not gonna make it onto Biff Tannen’s list.
5. Matt Murdock – I dont know why but I find this costume both awesome and hilarious. For those of you who don’t know, Murdock is Daredevil’s alter ego a blind lawyer. I saw two Murdock’s, one Friday and one Saturday. The one from Friday changed into Daredevil on Saturday. Both were excellent.
(Which also begs the question, why wasn’t Butter Bean dressed up as Kingpin?)
