Clothes Make the Man

Not too long ago, I shared a bunch of images of a Smallville-style Booster Gold jacket and pointed out that they were all badly altered versions of the same cosplayer.

I finally found a picture of another Eric Martsolf jacket. This one belongs to cosplayer Michael Boruff.

Boruff doesn't just have a jacket; he has a Skeets! Boruff indicates on his DeviantArt page that he's put a speaker inside Skeets so that it will talk. Now that's Boosterrific!

Great job, Michael.

Body Paint by Luke

We don't see a lot of people cosplaying in Booster Gold's New 52 costume. We see even fewer cosplaying in Booster Gold's New 52 costume made of body paint. So far, it's just Luke Abarca.

You can find other angles of this amazing makeup/graphic design mashup on Instagram.com, where Luke posts as lukeeffects.

Attentive Booster boosters may recall this is the second body-painted Booster we've seen this year. I showed you Kay Pike's work back in April. It's going to be hard to top these two!

Buyer Beware

Do you like leather jackets? Do you want to dress like actor Eric Martsolf from Smallville? Do you have $178? If you answered yes to all three of those questions, Sky-Seller.com might be the site for you!

Sky-seller.com

Or maybe you'd prefer to save $3 and order from LeatherJackets.com:

LeatherJackets.com

Hmm. That image looks awfully familiar. Where have I seen that before? Oh, yes, I remember now:

ThomDave

That's thomdave wearing the costume he had made for Comic-Con 2011. At the time, he credited the costume to Abby Polakow (of Cape & Cowl Creations).

Sky-Seller.com is registered to a private company in Panama. LeatherJackets.com is registered to an apparel company in San Francisco (B.L.K. International) which claims to have been in business for 20 years. If you look closely, you'll see that the LeatherJackets image is a poorly retouched version of the Sky-Seller image (you can clearly see the use of the clone tool to cover where the "Sky-Seller.com" watermark has been removed).

So Sky-Seller "borrowed" and retouched the image from thomdave's original forum post, and LeatherJackets "borrowed" that image and retouched it. Neither of them appear to have anything to do with Polakow, who has her own craft store on etsy.com.

The moral of today's post, boys and girls, is before you trust someone with your $175, you might want to do a bit of homework. Anyone who takes credit for someone else's work might not be the most trustworthy vendor.

Heroes Con Is a Convention for Heroes

This weekend, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, and Captain Marvel Shazam got together in Charlotte, North Carolina. Warlord Worlds has the proof from Heroes Convention 2016 on Twitter.com:

Those three heroes sure look like they're having a good time, don't they? I guess that's to be expected when you're attending a convention in your honor.

Thanks for the snapshot, Warlord Worlds.

Update 2016-06-23: On Twitter.com, Kord Industries (@KordIndustries1) tells us that the Beetle cosplayer in the picture is Rusty Winns (@RustyWinns). Thanks!

Update 2016-06-30: I should have mentioned before now that the Booster Gold cosplayer in the picture is Jay Tallsquall. Sorry for that oversight, Jay.

I Like Watching Paint Dry

Loyal Booster booster Morgenstern worried that Kay Pike's video of her body-painted Booster Gold "costume" might be too risque for the Boosterrific blog. (As a general rule, I do try to keep things PG rated around here.) Therefore, I'm just going to give you a SFW screenshot:

Booster Gold body paint by Kay Pike

Isn't that amazing? Without a doubt, it's without a doubt the best Booster Gold cosplay I've seen this year.

Assuming the sight of body-painted women doesn't offend you, I strongly encourage you to click on the image above to visit Kay's Instagram page to see a short video of the costume in motion. It really is very skillfully painted. Kudos to Kay.
