Kreepy 80's Kids Movie Review: Return to Oz

"Welcome to your nightmare."
Severed heads! Poisonous chicken eggs! Threats of dismemberment! Boy George impersonators with wheels for hands and feet! Electric shock therapy and a King who likes to wear women's sparkly shoes. No, you're not in Vegas! This a movie about the wonderful land of Oz and it's brought to you by Disney!

Welcome to the first edition of Kreepy 80's Kids Movie Review! As a child of the 80's I realized how absolutely terrifying some children's movies actually were. I'm still traumatized by creepy puppets, visiting aliens and  other Hollywood "family friendly" films (I really should be sending Steven Spielberg my therapy bill). I've decided to deal with my childhood trauma by writing humorous reviews. First up is Return to Oz. The film was directed by Walter Murch and released in 1985. It was the film debut of actress Fairuza Balk (who was 9 years old at the time) who played lead character, Dorothy Gale. The film boasted a budget of 28 million dollars but only grossed 11 million at the U.S. box office. Although it was a box office failure it has developed a cult following throughout the years.

Dee Dee Twins Gallery

Delia and Deidre Dennis aka The Dee Dee Twins made their debut in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, a direct to DVD movie released in 2000. Two versions of the film were available (I personally prefer the unrated edition). The end of the film revealed that the identical twin clowns (who were working for The Joker) were non other than the granddaughters of the infamous Harley Quinn. I took part in a photo shoot  in Georgia last summer to bring the double trouble sisters to life! Photography was done by Bodhi Tree Photography with  Mad Mel as my other half!

Batman V Superman Spoiler Free Review

I can finally confirm that I attended an advance screening of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this week. This is a spoiler free review that will not expose any major plot points or twists however some may find my critique too informative. Continue reading at your own risk.

I am a comic purist so this review is written from a comic junkie's POV. Other fellow purist geeks will get my references (you beautiful people).

The battle between DC Comics two greatest (and most profitable) heroes is something that comic book fans have seen played out repeatedly in books and animation. Dawn of Justice directed by Zack Snyder, marks the first time in cinematic history that both Batman and Superman are starring in the same film. They are joined by another DC powerhouse who has not been played by an actress since the 1975-1979 Lynda Carter television series (let's forget about that horrible 2011 Adrianne Palicki failed pilot). Wonder Woman finally makes her big screen debut and it was the only moment that drew applause from the crowd.

After 75 years we finally get to see Wonder Woman grace the big screen! The Amazon Princess is played by Israeli model turned actress Gal Gadot. Her makeup in the film is quite beautiful.

Costume Character Guide for Mature Adults

Age is nothing but a number and we are only as old (or as young) as we feel. However, many individuals have preferences when it comes to costuming. For example, some prefer to costume within their ethnicity, body type, gender or age. There's nothing wrong with costuming within your comfort zone. It's all about having fun, right? As long as you are having fun and expressing yourself, you're doing it right. To accommodate costumers who prefer to cosplay characters within their own age group, The Confessions of a Cosplay Girl Blog presents a list of 20 mature adult characters (both female and male).

2015 Wrap Up

2015 has come to an end (when did that happen?). In a year where my goal was to focus on attending less conventions and improving my finances rather than traveling to a show every weekend, I somehow found myself busier than ever. Managing and coordinating Heroes Alliance Charity Events, running my birthday party business, modeling, business and cosplay shoots, in addition to professional bookings (such as Wonder Woman and Katniss) kept me the busy bee. Below is a gallery of my 2015 adventures. What a blessing it was!
