Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist are back for the follow-up to 2010′s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. Definitely, there is high expectation that this sequel will lavishly offer something different that no other superhero movies have offered. Thanks to the pressure brought by the success of the first Kick-Ass. But before casual moviegoers are able to see this most anticipated sequel, most of the reviews have circulated online, which unfortunate enough to receive mostly harsh criticism for giving this out to a newcomer director Jeff Wadlow and coming up with a very violent and a half-baked plot. But most of the reviews, too, find a place to commend Chloe Grace Moretz who stands out as Hit Girl. Moretz, like Hit Girl herself, has entered an awkward adolescent stage and perhaps makes her to aptly adapt to character’s juncture.

OTAKON 2013 COSPLAY – Part 2
“I love Vampirella and even though I don’t have the body type to really do it right XD I’ve never let that stop me from cosplaying a character I love though, so I didn’t it anyway…It was a pretty easy outfit to put together, although if I ever do it again I hope to have the cape. The pumpkin was actually a mask I had carved myself for a headless horseman photoshoot that I still haven’t gotten to do :(“

The word Boomslank is completely made up. The idea behind Boomslank was born out of a strong need to do what makes one happy in life. We started Boomslank because we noticed a lot of the anime tees out there relied heavily on already licensed artwork. There was nothing original out there. So we set out to create an anime brand that was strictly based on original artwork.
So far things are going great and we are really enjoying the journey of trying to follow our dream. And believe me we’ve only just begun our journey.
Based on David Finch’s issue 700 cover art.
