This reminds me a bit of the time that punk band The Mr T Experience were asked to cover REM's Can't Get There From Here for a tribute album. Lacking a copy of the lyrics, and unable to figure out what Michael Stipe was singing, lead singer Dr Frank came up with... » 8/25/14 2:21pm 8/25/14 2:21pm

So... Not to be a downer, cos... Y'know... Awesome cosplay, but isn't stuff like moulded boob armour the kind of thing we seem to spend a lot of time objecting to here? I mean, in terms of pointing out kinda shitty representations of women in fantasy and Sci fi? » 8/24/14 5:26pm 8/24/14 5:26pm
