São Paulo, Brazil: a bank worker who was quitting his job went to his final day of work dressed in a #SpiderMan #costume. The unnamed man was pictured posing at his desk at an undisclosed location in São Paulo after recently quitting his job. Viral photos from the employee’s final day showed him mixing with co-workers while wearing the famous superhero costume, including laying across a desk.
#Cosplayers’ creations are inspired by many things, usually characters from science fiction, fantasy. superheroes, super-villains, anime, etc. But, now you can add carpeting to the mix. Carpeting? Yes! Some attendees of #DragonCon have been inspired to create #cosplays based upon the carpeting that used to be used in the Atlanta Marriott Marquis hotel:
Former Atlanta Marriott Marquis Carpeting
The pattern of concentric circles and segments in different shades of blues and reds is reminiscent of a camouflage pattern, which is how some cosplayers have incorporated the carpet design into their own works.
The first known use of the carpet design was on military-style uniforms created by Volpin Props in 2014:
But, after that, many more cosplayers incorporated the now iconic carpet into their own cosplays, including Spider-Man; Deadpool; a “Star Wars” stormtrooper & Slave Leia; quidditch players from “Harry Potter”; a coke bottle; Wonder Woman; a truck; and there’s a lot more out there. The pics below are primarily from 2017 and 2018.
Never underestimate the creativity of cosplayers!
#CosplayAgainstBullying interviewed #cosplayers and asked them how #cosplay has changed their lives:
People wear #costumes or #cosplays for different reasons. Often its for fun, for parties, holidays, being a hobbyist, contests, etc. Sometimes its professionally, but sometimes it provides a means for individuals to anonymously express themselves so that they can preserve their privacy and private lives.
Not everyone wants to be a celebrity and being masked allows people who publicly share opinions and advice to avoid the negative aspects that being a celebrity can cause. One such public masked figure operates a YouTube channel called “Heroic Concepts” and in one recently posted video (back in January of this year), he explains why he wears a mask.
Whether you agree or not with his views that he shares in a variety of YouTube videos, we support his reasons for donning a mask and expressing himself as he chooses.
