This weekend we had the pleasure of attending Planet Comicon in Kansas City, where we debuted our Rat Queens cosplays (Violet and Orc Dave) we’ve been working on for the last five months. It was so much fun. We were stopped for photos and recognized more often than I had anticipated.
Once we get some good photos, I’ll post a little more in depth description of how we made stuff. We’re looking forward to wearing them again to Denver Comic Con and a photoshoot in the next couple of months. We’re debating on wearing them to a few Renaissance fairs, but time will tell.
A crazy idea about who is the third ranked hero in Boku no Hero Academia
After seeing Sakamata in the last chapter (the orc hero), a character that first appeared in Horikoshi´s first series (the snake heroine is too), called Oumadoki Zoo, this idea came to me. What if the the third hero in the ranking is Shiina, the main character from the Zoo manga, the Rabbit man in the following images.
In his manga he was a cursed human transformed into a rabbit monster and with a childish personality, with the power of turning animals in more or less humanoid and inteligent monster, but the orc dude was a villain and originally a normal animal, but now he is a hero, so maybe some traits and details will change if he actually is the third best hero or simply a hero.
And since I am talking about him, I would like to point out how Deku mask, aside from being a obvious reference to All Might, could also be one to Shiina. Just look at the rabbit-like ears and the shape of the eyes of the mask, then look back at Shiina (Hori just have to make a hole in the right ear thingy of Deku´s mask to make it completely obvious) Also, Kouda´s scarf in his little flashback during the exam is the same as Shiina´s.
There have been a lot of cameos of characters from Oumagadoki Zoo, mostly in the background and some as secondary heroes (like the Orc and the Snake woman), but I think that it would be cool to Shiina to come back as a relevant character such as the third ranked hero.
Every day thousands and thousands and thousands of orcs get up and go back to work at the Blackrock Foundry, crafting weapons capable of mass destruction on a terrifying, global scale for the Iron Horde
There are the higher ranking orcs who oversee the operations, break up fights, start fights, and discipline those that are slacking off, and there are the peons, every day orc dudes just trying to make a “living” where “living” equals “not being horribly murdered while doing menial chores like carry this rock to that corner over there why because big orc say so that why”
and then there’s Harold
Harold is off hiding by a wall all by himself. His name isn’t really Harold, he’s just another orc peon. But Harold dreams of something bigger. Harold knows how to read. Harold lets his imagination take him to far off lands, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise
Oops, my hand slipped and I colored this… There comes a point when you’re coloring a Steve Buscemi Goblin, and you wonder what you’re doing with your life. And then you’re like, “Oh yeah, awesome things.”
