I fangirl all over the place. Outside of my New York Crime Procedurals (Elementary, White Collar, Unforgettable, Without a Trace, Castle), there are the other Crime Procedurals (Criminal Minds, NCIS, Twin Peaks, etc., etc.,).

Plus the sci-fi (Stargate(s), Doctor Who, Firefly).

And Avengers because seriously.

Everything in this blog is relevant to my interests.

When they make a black widow movie, the trailer needs to be all mysterious and the song playing needs to be Scarlett Johansson singing a lullaby cover of the itsy bitsy spider

I need this in my life

My best friend and I are going as fem Steve(post serum WWII) and fem Bucky (post Zola torture) for Halloween. Soooo excited. Any advice for clothing/how to find it/anything else?
mhalachai mhalachai Said:

oh, that’s a super-cool idea! Thrift stores are always handy for finding stuff. Not sure where  you live but up here we have some of those small thrift stores that sell stuff to raise money for the hospital or SPCA or something; they have a weird selection of stuff that doesn’t get as picked over as the Value Village stuff in advance of Halloween.

I’m curious, are you approaching fem!Steve and !Bucky as the “always a girl” trope or from the “pretended to be male to sign up for the army”? More so for Bucky, but that’s always a fun thing to have in mind when working on genderflipping those two characters.

Lastly when it comes to cosplay, there’s a tonne of tutorial costume making stuff on Pinterest if you’re looking - i’m not what you’d call crafty.

Let me know if you have pictures to share, your costumes  idea sounds awesome!

A comiXologist Recommends:
Mike Isenberg recommends Monster & Madman 

Jack the Ripper was in the headlines again last week, with claims surfacing of new DNA evidence pinning the 1888 London murder spree on Polish barber Aaron Kosminski.  Writer Steve Niles (arcaneimages) and artist Damien Worm, however, have another theory.

Monster & Madman tells the tale of Frankenstein’s monster, following the events of Mary Shelley’s classic novel.  Rather than burn himself to death on Victor Frankenstein’s funeral pyre, as he told the novel’s narrator he would, the monster decides to continue his life—as wretched as it is—and finds passage from the Arctic on a ship bound for Norway.

The monster eventually makes his way to London in 1888, just as a string of grisly murders is beginning to terrify the populace.  There he strikes a deal with mortician John Moore; if the monster allows Moore to examine him and discover the secrets of Victor Frankenstein’s work, Moore will grant the monster what Victor denied him: the creation of a companion to ease his loneliness.

Of course, Moore has his own secrets and motives, and his source for female body parts may not be the generous local hospital as he claims.

Steve Niles’ writing is in turns eerie and melancholy, matching Shelley’s original text in terms of both writing style as well as his characterization of the monster.

What makes Monster & Madman really shine, however, is definitely Damien Worm’s gorgeously grotesque artwork.  Worm’s moody collages of ink, paint, and newspaper clippings set a perfect tone for this creepy tale, and work wonderfully in letting the viewer see the world through the monster’s borrowed, reanimated eyes.

For fans of the Shelley’s classic novel, or of dark and moody horror in general, Monster & Madman is highly recommended.

Randomly, I caught Miss Marple’s Greenshaw’s Folly this evening. Besides it being a superb mystery (and one of the better of the recent Miss Marple mystery remakes imo), Fiona Shaw (whom most of you may know as Petunia Dursley from the Harry Potter films) played a leading role and she was just spectacular. The role (as a slightly eccentric botanist with a good heart) was perfect for her.

anyway tl;dr if you have a chance to see Fiona Shaw in anything, do it.
