How do you figure out everything regarding costumes of the characters and such? I mean, it must be difficult to find accurate things without having to buy them or work with what you have available. Unless you have someone make them for you. If you don't would you ever consider working with someone to make them?... If you haven't already got everything figured out that is.
Um Well i look at some good cosplays iv seen honestly, and i look at fan arts and redisngs to get ideas. Each a characters costume is either put together by the actor or me and the actor either way its me telling them what i thing it should look like and based on what they can find or we can buy we go from there. Biggest thing is choosing a color sceme that still feels like whats familiar but looks good on camera and in reality. If we can we make what we need my mom sews i know 2 girls who sew and make cloths and im creative with thrift shopping i know how to put already exsisitng cloths together to make what i need, personally i like making stuff if we can. Um yea i kinda just make concept folders with tons of pictures from good cosplays and fan art, then we discus what the actor thinks and what they wanna wear, and then we try to make it or buy it out of our own pockets. Its not so difficult if your creative and i find it fun. When adapting to live action accuracy isn’t the focus getting the point across with the feel and basic look of the character is, matter fact the gear costume and my Static costume are not the design from the the show its simliar but is our own spin on it. Id definetly consider working with someone to help me make costumes cuz it be a big help, i have a new friend who said he can help so i hope that works out. But yea i just kinda idk i figure out what looks good what i like then go and create the look live action, theres alot of window shopping in person and online, and idea conceptualizing forsure, hope that is a good enough answwer :)
Hi YVZ, KYB here, been watching your vids on YouTube for almost a year now and I can't wait for Eps 2! Okay, so this question is for Trever (I hope I spelled your name right)/Richie/Gear, what do you personal want to have Gear do; how are you going to interpret his powers? Will you have zap-cap like things that you throw at the bad guys, or will you guys add something new? Also, are you going to make Logan/Francis/Hotstreak a racist like in the comics or just a bully gone psycho? Thanks!
Hey KYB thanks for the support as for Trev he can answer that in his interview coming soon and its Trervor (im his best freind and i mess his name up all time so don’t feel bad), but i can Answer the question about Logan as i will in the video since these are fantastic questions. Hotstreak is gonna be my interpretation a bit as all the characters so far have been, um id like to have him make racial remarks since i find that to make him unique from most other villains in the comics or show and gives way from some great dialogue and story cuz racism is still a very real and prevalent thing and people like to act like it doesn’t exist, that being said Logan is a nice guy so i really have to check and see how comfortable he is with that and how far hes willing to take it you know, but short answer i planed on making him a racist sorta, more prejudish and do to his own ignorance, he did bully/ give Virgil a hard time in my version that was a good episode and important fight for him in both the comic and tv so i kind have to honor that in some way. I don’t wanna make him a psycho tho just cuz, i feel like Franisis was simply brought up wrong, he has the potential for good and i wanna somehow touch base with that by how we portray this character.
Quickie update bought new camera and some equipment of my own to go with it so new updates and photos will be coming very soon! In the mean time ask questions for our hot streak, raven, gear,and static, there will be a interview, and q and a video for each character, plus a a promo photoshoot soon :)
yeah yavez tarike here umm y is raven going to be in the film cuz remember woudnt she be too old to be in the teen titans ?????
Hey Tarkie, Raven is gonna be in my series because iv always been a teen titans fan and as we know in the comics multiple times Static was part of them. Raven in the comics is actually older than Static shes one of the original members but shes hardly not ever been on the team aside from the times when she left to go back home to fight her dad or brothers or when she was possessed by her dad and the titans and league fought her or the times she was dead b4 being revived or coming back.
Raven is like dc’s version of Jeane Grey like her characters history is complex and long. But back to your main question shes kinda mostly been on the team even if its just as an older member and was called just a “Titan” Also Static and raven have been in the same place on the same team a few times. Finally id like to remind you that this is a dc/dakota universe all of my own design im taking storys and characters and changing it to adapt to how my vision of static is in my head. Im doing my best to honor the source material with out ruining it, but after episode 1, part of episode 2 will have a familiar story but with my twist and spin on it and in my film i want a few titans to show up help him out or advice him. Double also remember in the tv universe we almost had a static crossover episode they didn’t do it but there was a time when static was in the batcave and he asked batman “so where’s robin?”
and Batman said “with the titans” static asked “the who?” Batman replied “You’ll meet them some day” check out the link ——> (x) So with that being said wed had them on the same team or fighting together at some point its kinda the crossover we never got would have looked like this minus ben ten
Soo very soon, we will be doing interviews of our actors playing our hotstreak, and or razen soo im opening this up to questions from yall the fans, ask away! Matter fact lets just make it a cast interview so lets open up questions for or Virgil, Richie, Raven, and Hotstreak go go go go!
Had a awesome thought, A good fan fic writer, a call of duty game play/ amv video editor, a 3d effects wiz, musician who mixes sound and makes sound effects, a Indi film director, and a cast of talented cosplayers who make their own costumes should be given like a small budget like 10,000 dollars (thats wicked small as far big films and tv productions go trust me) Like think of what would be created the amount of awesomeness the quality the accuracy. It be something to be in awe of…. this is a project i make wanna put together when i get to new york or Cali id do it here but idk that many cosplayers the editors and writer can live anywhere with the power of skype/google+.
If yall want to help at all id love it, hate to be that guy but i am buying and lens but i may not have enough for the other stuff like lights lens and what not if yall can’t help understand able but if u can it be great
Never had a girlfriend? What is with attractive internet people and being single all the time lol?? But I liked Static for the same reasons, I loved that it was another black nerd, and I thought his powers were so awesome (although have you noticed there seems to be a thing with black people and lighting powers?). But I have a question, how hard was if for you to make your cosplay?
Haha yea and really? im not the only one huh lol, Yea i have noticed that black people seem to be given electrical powers which is odd but theres no real reason as to why. And um not that hard i can’t sew so im as of now i buy cheap used stuff and alter it and make my props or what ever i may need after the fact. What i did was go a for a realstic take on what i thought tht costume would look like should a teen ager on budget put it together, soooo I looked up the comic versions and took most of my ideas from the second season costume look and went from there. I decided that an all black coat would be easy to find and look alot better than blue and yellow, Also it had to be a trench coat so i went thrift shopping and found a female coat in goodwill picked it up for 40 bucks :) the rest was easy cuz i Statics costume is made with civilian clothing not tights or armor, so i picked up a 3 dollor muscle shirt printed up the static logo on paper cut it out made it into stencil and used a yellow paint pen to stain and paint the symbol on the shirt. As for the inside yellow of the jacket yellow button up shirt left un buttoned i think imma change that to a jacket with a black hood on it (i really wanna put a hood on this new costume) some baggy black jeans i already had, and the most important part was the mask it was hand made with liquid latex i can go into detail about that if u like iv got pics and a video tutorial iv been meaning to edit haha, So i guess it wasn’t super hard but it took time and alot of thought as well good ole fashion craftiness :)
As of Now i know i wanna show Gears origin, introduce Hotstreak and have alot more of Virgil being Static in episode 2 as for episode 3 show how well gear and static work together as partners not as side kick and main hero, cameo 2 or 3 titans, bring back Rip and set up an epic final show down leading to Static joining the titans temporally while Gear stays and watched over dakota city. Thing is i need some equipment and i need locations and costumes these things are gonna cost money. Episode 1 was done on about 500 dollars of my own money parents money and many friend favors. So imma start promoting this first episode make it go viral build up a following and then launch a fund raising campaign to start filming come this winter and show up at some major conventions imma need yalls help but if bat girl spoiled can do it Night Wing the Series then why not static .
So sorry i haven’t really been around to post cosplays or updates been pretty busy lately, my intern job is doing a music video, im looking to start doing some freelance work, got into photography, then theres my New sci-fi film im working on and i met a girl :3 but we are working on Static Episode 2 i promise and i did an update talking about my involvement with teen tItans project check it out :)
