もはや特殊効果レベル! 進化し続ける海外のコスプレイヤー「ジョナサン・ストライカー」さんの新作ラッシュがヤバイ!!

コスプレイヤーのなかには “自分” という殻を脱ぎ捨て、別人になれるからコスプレにハマっている人が多いように思うが、その変身ぶりにも限界がありそうだ。

ところが、そんなリミットを無視して “コスプレ街道” をブッチ切りで爆進する青年がいる。以前にもロケットニュースで取り上げた彼が、さらに進化を遂げているというので紹介したい。その二次元と三次元を行き来するかような七変化ぶりがヤヴァすぎると、ネットが騒然となっているようだぞ!

その七変化ぶりでネットの話題をさらっているのは、10年以上もコスプレを続けているというジョナサン・ストライカーさんだ。

自称オタクの彼は日本のアニメや漫画、ゲームが大好きで、以前ロケットニュースで取り上げた時には、ディズニーアニメと日本の漫画キャラクターに扮した彼を中心に紹介した。あれから1年も経っていないというのに彼の進化はとどまる所を知らないと見え、そのマジなコスプレ魂が煮えたぎっているようなのだ。

・もう次元を超えている!

例えば、米アニメ『American Dad』に登場するエイリアンのロジャーのコスプレなど、まるで「特殊効果を使ったのか!?」と思ってしまうような出来栄え!

膨らんだお腹は室内装飾用フォームを使って制作し、はがせる塗料「プラスチックディップ」で色を塗って仕上げたのだとか。彼はInstagramの投稿に「かなり挑戦的なコスプレだった」とコメントしていることから、常に新たな試みにチャレンジしている様子。

同じく米アニメ『シンプソンズ』のキャラクター、ミスター・バーンズも、あのピノキオのように長い鼻が完璧に再現されていて、二次元から三次元に甦ったようで怖いくらいである。

そして、米アニメ『Archer』の主人公アーチャーはメイクをフル活用して、今度は三次元から二次元にワープしてしまったかのよう!

明らかに、ストライカーさんのメイクの腕前も小道具制作の能力も物スゴい勢いでアップしている模様で、そのコスプレに対するコミットぶりがマジでハンパない!

ストライカーさんの情熱がヒシヒシと伝わってくるコスプレには感動すら覚えるほど。きっと今後も信じられないような進化を遂げそうである。

Man arrested for licking the face of Japanese police officer, claims he was trying to help

Drunken attempt at assistance is a prime example of the solution being far worse than the problem.

Japan’s Golden Week vacation period kicked off last weekend, and two friends in Hyogo Prefecture’s Akashi City, not far from Kyoto, apparently decided to celebrate its start by going out for some drinks. Unfortunately, once they’d gotten comfortably liquored up they then hopped back into one man’s car to drive home.

The inebriated driver, a 32-year-old welder, ended up running the car into a drainage gutter, losing a wheel and crashing into a fence. He and the passenger, a 33-year-old office worker, fled the scene on foot before being picked up by a patrolman from the Hyogo Prefectural Police’s Kakogawa Precinct at around 10:45 p.m.

The officer placed both men in his patrol car for questioning, and the driver was arrested on charges of drunk driving and failure to report a traffic accident. The passenger, meanwhile, might have gotten off scot-free, but while being questioned he suddenly leaned forward and licked the policeman’s face between his mouth and nose.

While this behavior at first seems reminiscent of the serial foot-licker who prowled the streets of Kyoto a few years ago, the man insists he wasn’t licking the policeman for his own satisfaction. As a matter of fact, he claims his actions were for the officer’s benefit, saying “A mosquito had landed on the officer’s face, and I was trying to get it off.”

As gross and irritating as mosquitos and their bites are, even if the alleged insect really did exist most would argue that being licked by a drunken stranger is far more disgusting than having a bug on your face. Unsurprisingly, the police officer was less than appreciative of the tongue-based insect repellent strategy, and the man now faces criminal charges of obstructing the duties of a public official.

Expertly-piloted micro drone records breathtaking HD video of Japanese high school girls【Video】

Watch this tiny camera effortlessly zip around school like an inquisitive bee.

Footage taken by camera-equipped drones can be absolutely spectacular, providing refreshing visual perspectives of gorgeously-captured scenery.

With loads of practice flying the little things, YouTube channel Katsu FPV shows viewers just how stunning drone filming can be by recording a group of high school girls in the confined spaces of a school building.

▼ Get ready for a unique viewing experience.

The seven girls featured in the video are part of Onnanocos, a creative project aimed at capturing “the vibrant beauty of smiling school girls”. Although the clip certainly achieved that goal, stellar camera work and deft drone piloting skills were what lifted the recording to levels not seen before.

▼ Like a little buzzing bee, the drone precariously
zipped by mere inches from one of the girl’s face…

▼ …through the outstretched arms of another…

▼ …and through a gauntlet of chair legs.

The original video showcases Onnanocos members with subdued behavior, which while intriguing in its own right, is arguably not as warm and welcoming as the second version below.

▼ Here, the girls greet the hovering camera as they would a close friend.

Which clip did you find more interesting? I personally preferred the second video for having a lighthearted ambiance. Either way, I think we can all agree the drone’s amazing pilot is the true star of the entire production.

Not everyone has to be that skillful with a drone to pull off amazing videos though, but as one fascinating honeymoon drone montage shows, all you need is commitment and a desire to create lasting memories.
