CINEMATIC MILES MORALES COSPLAY

Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

Ugh, makes me want to redo some of my costume

nikolasdraperivey this makes me so freaking happy. When i was growing up, i dressed up as spiderman almost every Halloween, borrowing things from moms drawer, sisters closet…. and even tho i made a great costume every time, it still just made me so sad that when i took off the mask, i was still just a black dude, and it was back to reality. Miles Morales spiderman makes me incredibly, incredibly happy for a reason a lot of non african american or latinos just wont understand. And seeing you in this , literally makes me relive my childhood. Hit me up whenever u want man. good stuff.

Spectacular cosplay. From the costume, to the photography to the “acting” this is what Spider-Man should look like to me. Great job all around.

A Dame To Kill For review

So, on Tuesday, I was lucky enough to enjoy an advanced screening of “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" after winning passes from Ain’t It Cool News. I’m sure they do these things to get advanced word of mouth out there, but I’m just getting around to writing my review now, because life.

Anyway, like the last movie, SC:ADTKF consists of an opening short, and three anthology stories. There have been a lot of advancements in CGI since 2005, which allow Rodriguez and Miller to bring the gritty pastiche of Frank Miller’s graphic novels to life on screen. I’m not a big fan of 3D, but the way it is used in this film was breathtaking. This is, so far, the only time you’ll ever hear me tell not to bother seeing a movie unless it’s in 3D.

Now, for the movie. The opening vignette, adapted from the short “Just Another Saturday Night" was a solid reintroduction to this world, and a reminder of just how much damn fun it is to watch Micky Rourke as Marv.

Out of fucking nowhere I want to learn how to play the harmonica again.

So, Expendables 3 comes out this weekend, and I’m excited for a lot of reasons. First, of course, is that I’m a big fan of this franchise that consistently delivers a metric shit ton of fun by combining many of my favorite action icons doing what they do best. 

But the main reason I’m excited is that Wesley Snipes is joining the team. The minute that cat was sentenced to prison, I was telling people “Expendables 3 HAS to open with the team breaking Wesley Snipes out of jail” And from what I’ve heard, that’s exactly what happens.

But now, I’ve learned that Snipes’ character, Doc, is a knife throwing expert, which any Expendables fan knows is also the roll Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) serves on the team. Anyway, if I was Stallone, this is the scene I would write for the two of them:

INT. EXPENDABLES HQ - DAY

Lee Christmas approaches Doc, who is sharpening several of his knives for the upcoming battle.

CHRISTMAS: Those are some good looking Blades.

DOC: Well, this first Blade is good, and this second Blade is even better. But my third Blade is pretty jacked up. 

CHRISTMAS: I didn’t want to say anything, but that third Blade is a mess. What you need a forth Blade to really make things right.

DOC: A forth Blade, huh? Good call.

"For 40 years, I’ve photographed myself on my birthday wearing nothing but my white Lollipop underpants, shoes and socks. I made my first Birthday Suit self-portrait in Death Valley, CA in 1974.

Without fail, I’ve faced my camera every April 22nd since then to create a coded history of one woman’s journey through time…”

this is so incredibly wonderful. go look at the entire set of self-portrait photos by Lucy Hilmer

This is astonishing. I’m so glad people like this exist in this world.

Sometimes people ask me why I keep the cereal on the top shelf.

Sometimes, when someone has been in your life for a long time, they have very narrow perceptions of who you are and what you’re capable of. It could be a parent, friend, co-worker or spouse. I suppose it’s inevitable. 

But what’s really insidious is when you start to believe them. Or let their definition of you become your own self definition. 

Do not let anyone tell you who you are, what you’re capable of, or what you can be. Even if you love them. 

Fuck that noise.
