Damn it. I have an awesome recipient this week and have not been able to find details for the recipient.
Following on from Free Comic Book Day, I have a lot of admiration for families that cosplay together. They can really capture the vibe of a day by participating and showing their quirky side. It’s also a great opportunity to create mischief, while in cognito. Clever.
This year was Evil Genius Inc’s first step into the world of cosplay. Partly because we thought it was time to give it a go (spawnlings old enough to want to do it themselves) and partly because we had Nefarious’ birthday party on the same day, so it’s not like we had to change outfits or anything. 😀
But in light of this initial effort on our behalf, I am totally aware of the amazing competition out there. EG Inc will have to up their game for the next cosplay opportunity.
So this EG Parent Award goes to the family who created this amazing cosplay outfit for their child:
I love this for a couple of reasons:
- The kid looks awesome. Seriously awesome;
- The kid is posed perfectly for the costume;
- If the kid looks this great and is posed this well, then I can only admire the other “Tony Stark” values the family will be instilling as well. Not just science, innovation, creativity – but confidence, arrogance, and down right debonair suave awesome-sauce brilliance. And if I am RIGHT on this, than these parents are absolutely Evil Genius Parents. Well done.
So if anyone finds out who this brilliant cosplay belongs to, send them my way for their EG Parent Award. The best I have at the moment is the picture being listed on MTV’s Best Iron Man Cosplay. But of course – I want more.
Go, minions. Find this EG Parent for me!
