Black Rock Shooter Cosplay Vampy Bit Me Photo production amazing

Today, we’re featuring the beautiful model and otaku cosplayer VAMPY as Black Rock Shooter. Although VAMPY was born in Oklahoma she now lives in California. VAMPY is a famous model and cosplayer, and her website/blog is VAMPYbit.me. This Black Rock Shooter cosplay is one of the best we’ve ever seen. She has the scars in the right place and the cold emotionless stare down, but let’s look at the rest of the costume, too.  The boots look amazing and just like the original artwork of Black Rock Shooter. The belt, shorts, and bikini type top are also correct. Of course the coat, Black Rock Shooter’s iconic coat, looks as if it walked out of the illistration, too. It is simply amazing. She looks like the real Black Rock Shooter. We know we don’t want to mess with her.sexy Black Rock Shooter Cosplay VAMPY model

 

Black Rock Shooter is a Japanese media franchise based on characters created by Ryohei “Huke” Fuke. It revolves around its eponymous character, a mysterious black haired girl with a blazing blue eye. The original Black Rock Shooter illustration inspired a song of the same name by Supercell, a J-pop group, which gained popularity on Nico Nico Douga. The Black Rock Shooter song was sung by popular Vocaloid software Hatsune Miku. A 50-minute OVA (original video animation) based on the Black Rock Shooter was produced by Yutaka Yamamoto’s studio Ordet, written by Nagaru Tanigawa and Shinobu Yoshioka, and directed by Shinobu Yoshioka. A “Pilot Edition” was released on DVD and Blu-ray in September of 2009. This was before the full version of Black Rock Shooter OVA was released on DVDs bundled with select magazines from July 24, 2010, subtitled in seven different languages, followed by a retail release on December 17, 2010. An eight episode anime series aired on Fuji TV between February 3 and March 23, 2012. The Black Rock Shooter franchise has also spawned several manga series, and a Black Rock Shooter video game for the PSP, Black Rock Shooter: The Game; each of these are set in their own universe.

DoctorWhoSeason7Part2JennaLouiseColemanMattSmithBBCA

The Doctor, Matt Smith, and ClaraJenna-Louise Coleman, will be premiering in Part 2 of Doctor Who’s season 7, Saturday, March 30 on BBC America (during their Supernatural Saturday block). It was also announced to be aired, alongside BBC America’s new original sci-fi series Orphan Black and the comedy talk show The Nerdist. The 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special left us with a terrible cliff hanger, of ‘Who is Clara Oswin Oswald?’. I’m happy to say that I predicted the amazing ending to that Doctor Who Christmas special; I’m so glad they kept her as the casserole making dalek!

You can look forward to filling your Doctor Who craving this weekend, Sunday, February 24, as there will be another Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited special for The Second Doctor. As part of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary celebration, and in case you missed The First Doctor’s TV Special it will rerun on the same day as the premiere of The Second’s.

Happy 50th Anniversary Doctor Who and may you have many many more timelord filled years. (The official Doctor Who 50th Anniversary is November 23, 2013)
