10 questions with Blair Grimoire

It is the return of one of your favorite segments, the return of 10 questions. What better way to bring back this fan favorite than with one of my favorite cosplayers. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the talented and always beautiful, Blair Grimoire.

1. What is your name and where are you from?

Blair Grimoire and I'm from Florida. :)

2. How did you discover cosplay?

Sophomore year in High school, my friend Beatriz introduced me to most of the Anime's I now love. I had already grown up watching shows like Sailor Moon, Dbz, Outlaw Star.. pretty much everything they showed on Toonami in Cartoon Network after school but I didn't know much about other Anime's or where most of them came from, least of all that Anime conventions existed. I found my love of Hellsing through her giant Anime collection lol and we went to Necronomicon -- my first "convention-- together, so you could say that was the first time I really got a chance to see what cosplay truly was for myself. It was definitely something I wanted to try and experience for myself. :)


3. What characters have you cosplayed in the past?

This is going to be a long list and I bet I'm still going to be missing a few, here goes:

Harley Quinn -Batman

Dr. Harleen Quinzel- Batman

Inmate Harley Quinn- Batman

Pj Harley Quinn- Batman

Alex Ross Christmas Harley Quinn- Batman

Raven - Teen Titans

Lust- Fullmetal Alchemist

Gogo - Kill Bill Vol. 1

Arwen- Lord of The Rings

Jill Valentine- RE 1

Jill Valentine- BSAA Uniform

Bellatrix Lestrange- Harry Potter Books

Toadette- Mario Kart: Double Dash

Jean Grey - X-men

Elektra - Comic version

Madame Masque - Iron Man

Selene from Underworld

Mistress 9 - Sailor Moon

Ai Enma- Hellgirl

Yuuki Cross - Vampire Knight

Slytherin Student
4. What sites have you worked with?

None as of yet, most of the stuff I do is for myself.

5. Who is your favorite character to cosplay?

Definitely Harley Quinn, she's tons of fun and always lots of laughs. hehe

6. Do you read comics? If so, what are your favorites?

I do! I'm a big DC girl all the way and Batman has always been my favorite "hero", so the majority of the comics I own and read are all Batman. Specifically Batman comics with Joker and Harley. ♥ Outside of the Batman and DC universe I'm a big fan of Lady Death and The Grimm Fairy Tale comics.


7. Are you a gamer, if so what is your favorite game and on what system?

Oh man, I have to pick just ONE!? That's impossible for me but I'll try to keep it down to just my favorites. lol I grew up on the Nintendo systems when I was little so there were tons and tons of Mario games in my early childhood, and when the N64 came out The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time && Majora's Mask were my top two favorite games to play. I played them non-stop and LoZ is still one of my all time favorite games to date. I also really enjoyed Twilight Princess for the Game Cube and Resident Evil.

As far as the games I am into now go, aside from the ones I already listed above, I own a 360 so the majority of the games I play now are for that system. My favorites include: Fable 2 & 3, Bioshock 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Resident Evil 5 and Devil May Cry 4.

8. What are your future plans in terms of cosplay?

I actually just finished Seras Victoria's Blood Uniform from Hellsing and Jill Valentine's Battlesuit from Resident Evil 5; which you can see in some of the pics here. I am currently finishing up Lady from DMC 3 & 4 and I will be cosplaying Babydoll from Sucker Punch very soon.
9. Where do you like to show off your costumes the most?

Conventions mostly, there are a few costumed events I attend outside of conventions here and there but my costumes get debuted the most at conventions.

10. What would you say is your favorite genre to cosplay?

I find myself cosplaying characters from comic books , video games and anime the most.


Chun Li

I was on Comic Art Community the other day when I cam across this pic of Chun Li from Street Fighter.

All I want to know is, is this an unlockable outfit to do battle in?  LOL

Brightest Day #23

I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Firestorm Fan, and there was an article talking about the cover of Brightest Day #23.  It appears that some of the White Lanterns are going to go Elemental.  Of course Firestorm is fire and Aquaman is water, the other elements are finished out with Manhunter as Earth and Hawkman and Hawkgirl as Wind.  This could be an interesting concept but it could also backfire.  I for one am interested into seeing how this will work out.

Elemental Heroes?

Thanks again, Firestorm Fan, for bringing this to my attention.

Does this cover for Wonder Woman #612 mean what I think it means?  Is Diana going back to her old costume?

She's Back

I sure hope so!

Action Comics #900

The one and only Adam Hughes was selected to do a variant cover for the epic 900th issue of Action Comics.  For those of you who do not know, Action Comics has been going strong since 1938.  With that said, DC couldn't have chosen a better artist to do the cover.  Enjoy!

In Search of Dungeon Master

Dungeons and Dragons Toy Surprise

Greetings readers, are there any DnD fans in the house?  Well, you will love this post. 

    In case you are not familiar, I started this blog after seeing the passion from fellow blogger Reis at his old blog, Geek Orthodox.  The site has since been taken down, but I loved what he did and therefore started my own.  Anyway, I sent Reis a couple of care packages filled with all kinds of toys. One was Vader themed and the other was Batman themed and he promised to take care of me one day.  Which he did ten fold.  You see, I tried to win a Warduke figure from him in one of his contests, but sadly I didn't.  But Reis knew I wanted one so, he found a deal on 4, yes 4 DnD figures including the bad ass himself, Warduke.  I was delighted at what my eyes had seen when I first opened the box.  It was like opening a treasure chest filled with gold as I was concerned. 

DnD gang from Reis

The four figures I recieved are:

Warduke(with his sword)
Zarak(with dagger)

This is a kick ass haul and I truly appreciate it Reis!  Take a look at Reis's other blogs that I think are bad ass!  The sites are Hey! Look at my Toys! and Hey! Look at my art!  They can be found in my blog list to the right.  Now, I must go to battle.
