 In Brightest Day, In Darkest Knight

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Michael Boruff isn't the only Booster Gold cosplayer out this season. Check out this pose from New England's Super Megafest Comic Con two weeks ago:

That's BattleStardoe as Booster Gold and Everyone's Hero as The Darker Knight. (Photo is from Everyone's Hero post on Cosplay Amino.) What a good looking pair!

 Convention Season Is Here

Monday, April 17, 2017

Last November, we met Smallville-era Booster Gold cosplayer Michael Boruff. Boruff has finally taken his cosplay to a convention, specifically the 2017 Gem City Comic Con in Dayton, Ohio earlier this month.

I love to see smiling Booster Gold cosplayers (and their fans!). Thanks, Michael.

 Clothes Make the Man

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

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

Friday, November 4, 2016

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

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

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.
