I came up once and hollered! I came up twice and cried! If that water hadn't a-been so cold I might've sunk and died.
But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!
I took the elevator Sixteen floors above the ground. I thought about my baby And thought I would jump down.
I stood there and I hollered! I stood there and I cried! If it hadn't a-been so high I might've jumped and died.
But it was High up there! It was high!
So since I'm still here livin', I guess I will live on. I could've died for love-- But for livin' I was born
Though you may hear me holler, And you may see me cry-- I'll be dogged, sweet baby, If you gonna see me die.
Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!
- Langston Hughes
Pop culture has officially been taken over by Cosplay, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about this trend. It started out from being a small-town Comic-Con, and today has become a popular trend worldwide that even some of the hottest celebrities are taking part in. Check out these seriously creative costumes in honor of this iconic festival.
Our girl Katy Perry has decided to Cosplay it up slightly different than most of her fellow celebs who usually tend to show a little more skin and wear a slightly more attractive outfit. Nonetheless, however, we absolutely love her creative idea, and of course wouldn’t mind taking a bite out of her.
Quite the Quinn
This epic, talented, and dedicated Cosplayer is dressed up as the one and the only Harley Quinn – the supervillian from Suicide Squad. She’s totally mastered the look in every way possible, and is winning at this look so hard right now.
Alessandro Ambrossio is rocking it in her Vampire costume. She’s the kind of Vampire we really wouldn’t mind getting bitten by, that’s for sure. Safe to say that most of the world would agree and totally approve of her costume.
The famed reality TV personality and fashion mogul is known for dressing down, but when she’s off the clock, she finds joy in dressing up as her favorite characters. We love this interpretation of DC supervillain Poison Ivy, although we hope it’s a lot less itchy than the real thing…
It’s no wonder that one of Victoria’s Secret’s most well-known Angels would choose a character known for her shapely and iconic figure. We love this look for Alessandria Ambrosio, although she’s not the *only* Jessica Rabbit wannabe on this list…
Sarah as Selene
Sarah Hyland rocked this incredible costume of Selene from the Underworld series. The young actress is known for her love of dress-up and has showcased a variety of intricate costumes over the years.
Model and actress Shanina Shaik looks incredible as Disney’s Princess Jasmine. She hails from Australia, but her cosplay is so convincing she could very well be from Arabia.
Katherine McNamara looks incredible as Kim Possible, of course, the natural red hair makes it all the more convincing. The young actress is very much still up-and-coming in her career, and she is best known for her role as Clary Fray on the series “Shadowhunters.”
Michelle with Wine
Actress Michelle Trachtenberg looks unrecognizable as Tim Burton’s “Blue Girl With Wine”. The iconic painting currently hangs in the Museum of Modern Art, but Michelle’s recreation will certainly make you do a double-take.
Actress Madelaine Petsch is no stranger to fantasy. She currently stars in the Netflix series Riverdale as Cheryl Blossom, but we are loving her Jessica Rabbit look almost as much as her Riverdale character.
The iconic pop singer Mariah Carey has decided to go as a stunning mermaid. She’s totally killing this look, and although we don’t necessarily believe in mermaids, she’s got us all believing in her superpowers right now. Get it girl.
Queen Elsa isn’t just for young kids to love and look up to! Inspired by the ice-cold princess in Disney’s ‘Frozen’, she perfectly captures the personality and essence Queen Elsa.
