I always knew that Disney owning Star Wars was not a good thing, I always knew that JJ Abrams would completely ruin Star Wars, as he did Star Trek. When I heard of the whole "new canon" idea from Disney/Abrams, I was livid because all the Expanded Universe (EU) was completely gone. Now I haven't read all the EU stuff, there is simply too much, but two stories are dear to me and that are considered canon and liked by Lucas himself. Shadows of the Empire, and the novels and stories about Kyp Durron. Say what you will about the prequal films, but know that they are indeed Lucas's works are Lucas, IE TRUE, canon. I always knew something was just terribly wrong about this new canon of Star Wars, something huge, something that just devastates Star Wars as a whole. 

Before I go and talk about it, for those who don't know, I absolutely HATED Abrams' Star Trek films. 2009 was not Star Trek by any means and to even consider Into Darkness to be a Wrath of Khan remake is utter insanity. He turned movies about exploration, thoughtful intellect and deep morals into pew pew lasers and lens flare with no regard to the original material. The actors were also poorly cast. I don't have a problem with Cumberbatch or Simon Pegg, but seeing them in those roles and in such horrible films hurts me. I have high expectations of television, movies, and video games alike. Hideo Kojima, Andrei Tarkovsky are some examples of my favorite directors. So, with big names like Star Trek and Star Wars, I expect a lot and the Star Trek movies didn't even come close to reaching that expectation. 

So, I was watching Cinemassacre earlier today, watching the James and Mike Play Shadows of the Empire, and they mentioned that in A New Hope, that you can see the Outrider, Dash Rendar's ship, fly off from Mos Eisley. 

Now, according Disney/Abrams anti-EU Canon, Shadows of the Empire doesn't exist anymore. So, that doesn't exist, huh? But, wait a second, the Outrider, from Shadows of the Empire, is in A New Hope, which is obviously is true, Lucas canon. So, what Disney/Abrams is saying, is that because of no more EU, Ep4 IV: A New Hope CAN'T HAPPEN. All due the Outrider scene. 

WHAT THE CRAP, DISNEY AND ABRAMS? 

So, yeah, I see past your flawed logic. What are you going to do now? Rename Not-Dash-Rendar's-ship so you can have your own canon? Screw off. Seriously, Screw off. You can't just cherry pick what you like about the true canon and trash the rest of it, you aren't the nicolas cage of Star Wars. You have no place in Star Wars at all. Abrams had no place in Star Trek either. Stop ruining great Sci-Fi. Stop making this new Star Wars and just leave Star Wars alone. If new movies must be made, then it must be based off the established canon. Again, going back to Kyp Durron, established story and character, with the whole Sun Crusher incident. THAT HAPPENED. That would be great to have a movie of. Even if its condensed from all the EU works. And what about Shadows of the Empire? That would be great to see a movie of. Maybe not in live action since the cast is old now, but an animation version of it in theatres would be awesome. Also what about everything that happened prior to Ep1? So much story and lore from the EU. 

Point I'm getting is, Disney/Abrams has soo much to work with, so much established canon to work with, they think so highly of themselves that they think they can destroy years and years of EU work with the drop of a hat, just to pocket money.  

However, in all fairness, I will go see EpVII. Its not right to talk about it, because I haven't seen it yet, its not even out. All this is against the Disney/Abram canon.

So, in honor of Shadows of the Empire, I've added Dash Rendar to my Cosplay To Do list. 

I'm not going to let a corporation and some hack director tell me what Star Wars canon is and isn't. However, this is what I can say about EPVII: It won't make sense since EpIV never happened.

Wow, first cosplay pic of 2015. Starting off pretty well. 

Jacket is all finished, didn't come out as well as I wanted, but it looks and feels awesome. Time to work on cyber parts.

Well, I know I've been gone for awhile. So, happy late holidays and such. 

2014 has been and interesting, but really good year for me, but it wasn't without it's own pits. Got married, got out of the Marines, played some good games, watched some good films, been all over the country. Job searching has been a pain in the ass, though. 

Getting back in the gist of cosplaying. Not a lot of events, but been working on new cosplays. Hopefully Katsucon is on the horizon for us. 

Airsofting has been really fun, WWII airsofting has been even more fun. Just got back from a Battle of the Bulge game in upstate NY. It was cold, I was cold. Still fun. 

Sorry for the lack of presence and updates here. I'll be back in the full groove eventually. 

Hope to hit up Katsucon!

Sasha Kaidanovsky WIP 1 - Pacific Rim


Most of Sasha and Aleksis Kaidanovsky's costumes are fairly simple, sans the emblems on the back of the coats. So here is a WIP of the double headed eagle emblem that Sasha has. 

Wasn't going to give it the safety pin art treatment the screen used ones got, but I'm still making it detailed and get that elevation going with the designs. 

Next up is to give it the gold treatment!

Welcome to my page!

This is where I post all my art. Though it is mainly Cosplay and Prop making, and with some photography. Been going to cons and cosplaying since 2005. Won multiple awards. Most notable, a masquerade award at Anime NEXT 2007 with a Metal Gear group, and Best Male Villain at Anime Comic Con 2011.

Other main hobby is gaming. I've been doing so back when Duke Nukem was 2d.

I also airsoft, which I combine with Era Reenactment. Trying out different loadouts and field uniforms and gear from different wars and countries. Right now I have a WWII US Army Soldier and a Soviet soldier (Russian-Afghan War).

I'm currently enlisted in the USMC, with my contract ending soon. Going to leave it at that.
