i saw Star Trek and I wish the whole movie had been about them being a super fashionable space biker gang with their space-leather jackets.
Great. Now I’m suddenly neck-deep in scribbling down every reason why I ship these three together, with no signs of stopping anytime soon. The floodgates are open. *shakes fist at Star Trek*
I am not alone!!
We tend to see these tutorials not in English so here is a fabulous Spandex over Foam Tutorial from Ruffle Butt Cosplay.
While the tutorial is made with Spandex, you can definitely use it with 2-way or 4-way stretch vinyl.
Here are pictures of cosplay armor…
Things to try and retry, Kagetoki and Olivie’s armor was all done this way, but I always love to see more techniques. ^_^
No way would Tony blow his suits up. No. Way.
This scene is so out of character. Tony’s suits mean everything to him. Everything. The Mark I wasn’t just a means of escape from the cave, it was representative of a new beginning Tony’s suits gave him a means to change his life. To redirect his focus into helping people. There is a panel (and damn if I can find it) where he is sitting in front of them and he calls them his ‘babies’.
He spent all his time and energy and resources building them for a reason. Not just to assuage his fears (according to mcu) but to be sure they are cutting edge and capable of saving those who can’t save themselves (comic cannon). Even when he has Extremis he keeps his suits.
Tony is one of the most compassionate male characters in fiction. If he has to sacrifice himself to save another, he will. Without a moments thought for himself. The suits aid him in this. They physically enable him to be a better man. The man he wants so desperately to be. And yet according to mcu cannon he would blow them up just to make Pepper happy? No. Just no.
No way. No way in hell would he destroy them. Not for Pepper, Not for Steve. Not for anyone. He says it in Iron Man 1: “there is nothing but the next mission’. To imply that Tony would give it all up for love is to diminish his character so horribly. Tony is NOT a self centered man. To have him give in for Pepper is to imply that he thinks only of himself, his own future happiness That is not the kind of futurist Tony is. He knows, he inherently just knows that those suits will help him assist in the future of this planet. He would never put himself and his own happiness first. Never. You can see the look on his face when Jarvis blows them up. He knows it isn’t right. He is not at all comfortable with this move. Being an Avenger means everything to Tony. That he would imply he will give it all up for Pepper is wrong, so very wrong. Regardless of if they are going to put in Avengers 2 that Tony now has Extremis, the fact of the matter is that they didn’t clarify it at all in IM3 and we are left believing he doesn’t and that he has in fact blown them all up to make Pepper happy.
Tony has killed to keep the suit out of enemy hands. He has bled for that damn suit. He has lost friends and family because of it. He has literally lost his mind to keep the suit and others safe and to have him give it up for one person? No. Tony is Iron Man whether he is encased bodily in the suit or if the suit is implanted within him.
When Tony says ‘the suit and I are one’ he means it. Down to his very soul, the man means it.
No doubt I agree with you.
But I thought he would build more new suits after these were blown up. He just did to show Pepper. Maybe it’s an illusion or something. Maybe those suits are just testing and not perfect perfect that he want to redo again…I dunno.
He definitely will build more suits because he needs them in Avengers 2
The thing about Extremis is that it means he doesn’t need to build new suits. After Extremis, Tony carries his suit around with him everywhere, just under his skin. So he doesn’t need to build new suits, he is the suit.
This was the most frustrating thing in IM3 to me. Not only is the billions of dollars of investment, the priceless vibranium in ever arc reactor,and the fact that at least two of those suits were clearly hulk-buster type units which we will need in the future…. for all those reasons and more I just couldn’t see Tony throwing them away like that.
By the time I’d left the theatre the first time, I already had a head canon that they were just setting off fireworks and then going dark to be salvaged later. No way in hell did he blow them all up, and no way in hell did Jarvis listen to him. Especially because without at least one or two suits, how did he and Pepper get home from the burning/exploding oil platform? Hmmm?
Also WHY DID HE TAKE AWAY PEPPER’S SUPER POWERS. But we’re not talking about that. Mrrrr.
WOAH I WAS NOT READY FOR THAT HOLY SHIT.

Because cosplay is about love.
Among so many other issues, this is one of the problems I have with Twilight.

How is he this perfect. how.
He was an all-action Sherlock Holmes for TV and now he’s conquering Hollywood in Star Trek. Caitlin Moran joins the actor at his parents’ home for Sunday lunch
I don’t know if you remember, but some time last summer – between the end of the Olympics and the return of The X Factor – it briefly became the thing to have a go at Benedict Cumberbatch for being “a posho”.
However many times Cumberbatch tried to explain that he was “just middle class, really”, a sum kept being done, over and over: “Harrow education” + “called ‘Benedict Cumberbatch’ ” = “A man who wipes his bum on castles”. There was a series of catty columns about it, with headlines like “Posh off to America” and “Poor posh boy”.
The underlying presumption seemed to be that Cumberbatch was some dilettante princeling – stealing roles such as Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock, and the painfully repressed landowner Christopher Tietjens in Tom Stoppard’s Parade’s End, that would otherwise have gone to working-class actors such as Danny Dyer, or Shane Richie from EastEnders, and that this was all a great pity.
Of course, as with all these things, it blew over quite quickly – not least because it was superseded by the news that Cumberbatch had been cast in the new Star Trek movie, and was, therefore, about to become one of the most successful British actors of the past ten years. But I am reminded of it all today, in the back of a cab, leafing through a pile of cuttings on Cumberbatch.
“What a load of balls that was,” I muse. “The whole posh thing. What a load of old balls. What a funny old world.”
It’s a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and I have been invited to lunch with Cumberbatch at his parents’ house in Gloucestershire. Star Trek Into Darkness is now about to open and this is the only day he has free to talk. I have made the great sacrifice and taken a train to Swindon.
The cab driver drops me outside the house.
“Here you go,” he says.
I climb out of the car, and stare at a gigantic, honey-coloured mansion, with immaculately tended lawns. Parked in the driveway are a black London taxi and a vintage silver Rolls-Royce.
Last night, Benedict had offered to pick me up from the station, saying he has a “loooooooooovely car”.
“Yes – you have, haven’t you, Benedict?” I think to myself, staring. “You’ve got a lovely pair.”
I crunch up the drive, carrying a massive bunch of flowers and a bottle of wine, and shout through the letter box.
“Hello! I’m from London! I’ve come on holiday, to the countryside, by accident!”
Silence. I circle the house. The place is so big, I can’t work out where the front door is.
I decide to go to ask a neighbour for advice on how to penetrate the Cumberbatch estate.
I head towards a nearby crofter’s cottage.
Benedict Cumberbatch is standing in the doorway of the tiny cottage, in a pair of knackered navy corduroy slippers, watching my progress across the lawn – lavishly strewn with hyacinths – with some curiosity.
“What were you doing at Kate Moss’s house?” he asks, mildly.
Ah. Kate Moss. The working-class girl from Croydon made good. That mansion is her house.
The “posh” Cumberbatches, by way of contrast, live next door: three small rooms downstairs, three small rooms upstairs. Every available surface is covered in books, family photographs or owls.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! This is the perfect gif set I’ve been waiting for since the movie. <3
Please, I’m trying to win a bet with my friends

I believe there should be a Sir in there somewhere.
The low number of reblogs on this makes me a little sad.
