And Now For Something Completely Different

If Statues And Famous Landmarks Cosplayed Life Would Be A Lot More Fun


Apparently some pranksters CalTech thought it would be a fun idea to cover the Alamo sculpture in Manhattan’s Astor Place with a Portal Companion Cube outfit yesterday. They were 100% right. We’d like to see this kind of thing become a trend and have a few suggestions to offer up to you creative types. 

The Venus de Milo cosplaying Phantom Limb from The Venture Bros.

The Wall Street Bull should be dressed up like the Monopoly Man.

The Statue of Liberty totally wanted to cosplay as the Statue of Liberty from Ghostbusters 2 but we told her she had to be She-Hulk. We compromised on cosplaying a Ghostbuster.

Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln of Mount Rushmore could certainly be done up like Batman, Superman, The Flash and Green Lantern.

Rodin’s The Thinker absolutely needs to be a zombie eating his own hand.

We totally think the Balto statue in Central Park needs to be dressed up as Amaterasu from Okami. It would even be gender-swapped!

And will someone please dress the Empire State Building up like a TARDIS?

    The Empire State building was my favorite.  I couldn’t resist it, so, not the best, but here you go.  Your wish is my command!

    Oh, someone please do it… I especially want to see Mt Rushmore done up as DC heroes.

    The so-called “Banksy of Bulgaria” painted a statue that was supposed to celebrate the Russian “liberation” of their country. Included are Wonder Woman, Robin, Captain America, Ronald McDonald, Superman, The Joker, and two unidentifiable characters. If this isn’t statue cosplay, I don’t know what is!

    It already looks like a TARDIS, as the chameleon circuit allows it to disguise itself as whatever, unless you mean the Doctor’s TARDIS.

    Forget the Companion Cube; I want to see the Alamo sculpture redone as the LeMarchand’s Lament Configuration! (For the unintiated, that’s the puzzle box from the “Hellraiser” series.)
