Things We Saw Today: The World’s Creepiest Doctor Who Cosplay


Livejournaler alcblueyes writes that, yes, Rose’s face in this excellent “The Idiot’s Lantern” actually is a prosthetic, not a case of Photoshop. I’m scared. (Neatorama)

  • The Frisky has an interesting piece on “the sworn virgins of Albania,” women who choose to live their entire lives as men, in part because of the way women are treated in traditional Albanian culture. As the “virgins” part of the moniker implies, part of the practice involves taking a vow of celibacy.
  • Like X-Men: First Class and The Wolverine before it, X-Men: Days of Future Past will not have a Stan Lee cameo. (Collider)
  • Geekosystem’s Glen Tickle defends Batfleck in an essay titled “Stop Whining about Ben Affleck Playing Batman, He Is Perfect For the Part”. Give Affleck a chance, guys.

Hands up: Who’s seen The World’s End, out in (U.S.) theaters this weekend? I thought it was pretty amazing, as is this new Mondo poster by Kevin Tong. (Collider)

  • Battlestar Galactica alum Tahmoh Penikett, who’s popped up on Arrow and recently booked a recurring gig on Supernatural, has joined the cast of The CW’s new show Star-Crossed. Judging by the description it’s sort of a semi-dystopian Romeo and Juliet… with aliens. So a bit like Helo and Athena’s romance plotline, but CW-y. (blastr)

    I saw “World’s End” in a three-movie marathon (holy tired buttcheeks!) and thought it was fun…but not great. I felt like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were more riffs on established themes, and World’s End…wasn’t.

    But I still think it’s absolutely worth seeing.

    I wish to know the ways of making that mask. You might say I have a Question in mind.

    the problem is, and has always been, finding someone who can play both the hyperfocused intense Batman, and the casual billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne. Keaton made a good Batman but a lousy Wayne. Kilmer made a good Wayne, but a lousy Batman. Clooney, well he wasn’t given much to work with in the Bat-Nipple Era. Bale did well with both, minus the ridiculous voice. I think Affleck could pull off the Bruce Wayne. But I just don’t see him doing the intense thing. He just has that aura of “eh, screw it, let’s just get a beer and come back to this later.” and Batman CAN’T have that.

    That mask reminds me of Star Trek where Charley magicked away a woman’s face. I was so glad that was cut from the versions I saw when I was a kid. It was still pretty scary when I saw it as an adult!

    I’m torn between the visceral horror, and the construction questions (can she see out of that? How easy is it for her to breathe?)

    A lot of answered Questions.

    While I would agree with the Affleck of nigh 10 years ago, I think Affleck as he is now can certainly pull it off.

    Not only is Faceless!Rose perfect, but the cosplayer dressed as the Doctor has the look down pat.

    He’s pretty cute, too.

    I thought about doing that as a cosplay, but I would have just used pantyhose. This is Way cooler/creepy
