Ack, overlooked the other cosplay post just before. But uh, this one show actually outstanding cosplay and lots of people having fun and hopefully won't give people nightmares.

If you just drink out of glasses you find sitting on the street, you can't really complain about the video you find yourself in, can you. Still, it was amusing, and, from the YouTube sidebar, it seems like kind of a thing -- lipsyncing at comic conventions. I am unsurprised, honestly.

This was tremendous. The joker reveal at :45 was awesome, indeed.

This is my two-year-old's favorite song (which says something), despite all my attempts to shield her from it (her mom listens to the radio). Completely inappropriate lyrics for a two-year-old. And so.

Silent Bob wins.

That was fantastic, thank you.

It makes me a little sad to think that an entertainment industry executive could look at that video and only think about how much theft is going on in it, those little nerd bastards stealing the Pink money and the Batman money that should rightfully be his.

Somebody get that Flynn a wig.

Is this something I'd need to be under 25 and peculiar to appreciate?

No. Maybe under 50 and not empty inside, though!

Feh. I was 56 this week and I thought it was great.

I love this! They are so darned cheerful and non-ironic all of them!

What's Kari Byron's sister at 1:33 dressed as?

Was wondering the same, Harald74. Also, where's the female Doctor, desjardins? Not seeing that one (but then, I don't know the Dr. Who series as well as I should).

The female Doctor shows up first at around 1:07. She's dressed up as David Tennant's Ten. No idea on the other question though.

I like how when the "panty snatcher" line came up, Panty from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt was being dragged away.

Huh... I was just figuring that was a harry potter reference, to be honest. Was wondering why they hadn't bothered with a lightning scar. This makes much more sense!

I thought part of the fun of a lip dub was that you did it all in one take?
posted by buriednexttoyou at 5:39 PM on September 27, 2011


That was excellent.

Related, but a bit more "unrehearsed," from the San Diego Comic-Con, a (not-quite lip dub, more like a crowd-sourced lipsync) rendition of "Born This Way."

Possibly previously?

That was really cool - I love how the internet has just exploded the con scene, though I confess I've never been to a con myself.

If I had been just few years younger I could have seen a lot of this during high school and I think it would taken away the more bitter, fuck-you aspects of the pride my friends and I took in being outsiders at the time. That fellowship would have tasted a lot nicer than the derision we used as armour instead. Lovely.

I like how in the "Born This Way" dub the cosplay bender is actually smoking a cigar in the convention center.
