(via Cosplay - Captain Jack Sparrow by Slava-Grebenkin on deviantART)
YO DUDE I SAW THIS ON DA A FEW WEEKS AGO AND I WAS LIKE “WHY DID SOMEONE SUBMIT SCREENSHOTS OF THE FILM?” BUT THEN I WAS LIKE HO SHIT IT’S A COSPLAY!!!!! THIS PERSON IS PERFECT
this is cosplay
THIS IS COSPLAY
ALL THE AWARDS
WHAT THE HECK? I THOUGHT IT WAS JOHNNY DEPP!
First there was Anthony Misiano’s Joker, and now there’s this. Both amazing.
If I understand cosplay correctly then Jack Sparrow is the better one, because I certainly can’t tell the difference (except for the Russian-language request for rum) between these images and stills from the PotC movies.
However, if I was a convention masquerade judge my vote would still go to the Joker interpretation rather than the Jack Sparrow imitation.
Misiano’s Joker isn’t trying to exactly match Ledger’s, Nicholson’s or Romero’s version; if anything it’s based on the Batman: The Animated Series Joker with a bit of Brian Bolland’s art from The Killing Joke. He hasn’t recreated a human actor, he’s given movement and expression to a cartoon grotesque.
Think of a Disneyland where Mickey & Co were as facially alive as the people dressed as Peter Pan and Snow White… Oh.
I think I just creeped myself out.
