New Ghostbusters Dream Cast




Hi Universe,

Well we all want to see another Ghostbusters movie. As much as I’d love to see the original cast that is very unlikely. Egon passed away and Bill Murray doesn’t want to do it ( I understand why)

Their has been talk of an all female Ghostbusters and I’m ok with that just as long as it wasn’t the exact same cast from Bridesmaids ughhh no thanks. You however may disagree.

Here is my Dream cast

MV5BOTI3ODk1MTMyNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDEyNTE2Mg@@._V1_SX640_SY720_  Peter

010313-shows-real-husbands-hollywood-rhoh-press-kevin-hart-2   Winston

Jesse-Eisenberg   Egon

MV5BMTQ2OTg1NDQ0MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTUwMDc4NQ__._V1._SX640_SY426_  Ray


Isla_Fisher_2013 Janine

Nicholas-nick-swardson-721761_333_500  Louis

REBOOT       Ok if it is a total reboot then the old cast never meets the new one. However Winston gets equal screen time as the other main guys. Janine and Louis are the reconnaissance crew weeding out the fakes and the easy jobs.


Pass the Torch      Now if you want to still have the original remaining ( rest in peace Egon)    Ghostbusters in it, than this is how I see it:  The original guys are going through their last training day with the new group. they then retire. However on the new groups second trip out they get in over their heads and all the new tech doesn’t help them. The original guys must come out of retirement to save the new group using the orginal proton packs and original ecto car, and thus pass the touch when the movie ends to the now totally seasoned new group. Same casting applies just with different names but the type of characters are still the same just as a  new tip of the hat to the original.


SO What Do Yo Think? What is Your Recast?

cosplay Sat. Manga gone main stream

Hi Universe,

Well its sat. so that means another cosplay question.  Oh quick note I completed my costume for the Akron Masquerade Ball tonight Pics will be posted of the costume and the night as well!

So as I said how do you know when manga has gone main stream?

Simple when a major makeup retailer names their latest eye lash volumizer after it!


Yep this is brand new and the commercials on tv are running as we speak . .er type.  L’OREAL has used manga and lage eyed images in their new commercial.

My Dad was asking me the other day “who all goes to conventions and who are your customers really, is it a niche still?”

Dad if L’OREAL is using manga to push their makeup nationwide here in the states I am not working with a niche market.

Everyone we can thank ladies makeup for officially deeming manga and its fans as main stream!


Ok here is my question what makeup do you use to finish off a costume? Cover girl, maybalene, LOreal? etc etc?

A special warning for guys

Hi Universe,


Gentlemen and I use the term vary loosely.  We are all guilty of being cads, jerks, cheaters and worse and on multiple occasions. We should endeavor to be the best versions of our self at all times especially for the ladies and our special lady.

IF YOU DONT . . . . . go see gone girl . . . . I wont spoil anything  but let me tell you boys you’ll certainly think twice about being a jerk. Nuff said.


I saw this movie and I am quick and can figure stuff out fast . . .nope not this time !  Go see it.

Cosplay Saturday Vampires . . . . .Need I say more?

Hi Universe,

Ok its that time again so a few announcements and then the question.

First of work has begun on my vampire costume for Halloweeen. As usually I was able to score a fantastic black trench coat from Salvation army. Please imagine “thrift shop” miraculously playing right now. This was actually a women light coat but it was the proper length and very light weight hopefully allowing some cool billowing in the wind action when worn.  Now the sleeves were naturally too short so I am using my left over leather to not only fix the sleeves and add leather cuffs but also a leather bat on the back with its wings stretching to the front. Pics will be comig soon!

$T2eC16Z,!ysE9sy0i3R0BRQlOOHytQ~~60_35this is what they look like though mine wont be tilted so far back (he looks like a goblin to me not a vampire)

Cosplay Question:  Modern vampires do they have pointy almost elf like ears or do they have regular ears? 

I ask because I went out and got the ear appliances to add to the overall vampire design, did I pick wisely or not?
