A bunch of friends and I are doing the costume thing for Avengers premier. One has expressed an interest in a Scarlet Witch outfit, but can't find one for sale on the web. Does anyone know where we might find one? I'm looking as we speak and finding zip.
Spider is probably right. I did a little searching and couldn't come up with a ready-made costume. Thing is, Scarlet Witch has a pretty simple look to piece together. You get some tights, a red corset, a red cape, and you're pretty much there. The head piece is the only part that would be tricky. Even that, though, is a simple shape. You could cut a piece of cardboard into the shape of an M and color it red if you wanted to go the simplest route, and it would probably look fine.
EDIT: In fact, given how form-fitting her look is, it's probably better to buy the pieces individually because then the person can buy things that will fit them correctly, and it will look way better.
Just had a minor freakout at Roger Ebert's website when his recent reviews included a film called Deadline and only gave it two stars. I had a panic attack that Geekers's film was already getting panned. Then it occurred to me that:
A) Geekers's name isn't Curt Hahn B) Geekers would have mentioned hiring Eric Roberts C) He only just wrapped filming so the film isn't out yet.
Indeed. And if you think those are cool, Marvel had an entire series of replicas created about 10 years ago - Nick Fury's badge and gun, Spider-Man's web-shooters, Elektra's sais, Thor's hammer (reg and ultimate), etc. Unfortunately they were all limited release, and they were done by several different companies, so it's hard to find a page with just those on it. Closest thing I could find was this page which has a bunch of other stuff on it. If you look for "Factory X", "Diamond Select", or "Windlass Studios", those are the ones authorized by Marvel. You know they're the right ones because they all come on display stands with plaques which are numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity. They're pretty awesome. Also, check out the DC Direct stuff, which is the DC equivalent.
I'd like to come dressed up for the Avengers premiere, but I'm kinda lazy to get a costume, plus I think I'd rather spend the money on the marathon. Turns out one of the AMCs in Miami is gonna have it, so it's likely I'll go to that one. I've still yet to see Captain America, for crying out loud!
Oh, and as if his fate were being written by the vengeful spirit of a vaudeville comedian, Hughes discovered that his targets were a little over a half mile away, which, powerful wind notwithstanding, was beyond the range of the rifle he was using. To make matters worse (and yes, there apparently was still room for them to get worse), the enemy soldier he was targeting was covered in a fortified position, with only a small portion of his head and torso exposed. Hughes would have only one chance, because if he took a shot and missed, the Iraqi would simply duck completely behind cover and never come back up. It'd be like if Luke Skywalker had been commanded to park his X-Wing at the beginning of the trench, and to lean out of the cockpit with a grenade wedged in his ass and try to power-shit it into the Death Star's exhaust port.
A Cincinnati man walked out to his car one morning and was surprised to find a guy asleep inside without any pants on. The half-naked sleeper turned out to be Kim LeBlanc, who told police that he'd done drugs and was pretty sure a leprechaun had opened the car door and let him in. He offered no explanation as to why a leprechaun would have told him to wait inside a stranger's automobile, or where the aforementioned leprechaun had gone with his pants.
