After the LIVE podcast interview with the cosplay team, Arkham Knights, we announced a contest.
The prize was Batman Triple Play, which includes Gotham Knight/Under the Red Hood/Year One. All you have to do is tune in! (To qualify to win, you must be residence of Canada and the US.) A winner was chosen from the chatroom viewers.
The winner is…. Kenobi1985!
Look for future interviews and contests.
Who are the Arkham Knights?
“With our identities a secret, we hide in the shadows of Toronto. Always on the look out for crime and villainy. We are justice, we are the night.”
– Batman and Robin
What is “Cosplay”?
Short for “costume play”, is a type of performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play. A broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.
Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books, video games, and films. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa. There is also a subset of cosplay culture centered around sex appeal, with cosplayers specifically choosing characters that are known for their attractiveness and/or revealing costumes. – Wikipedia
