The Skipper To My Gilligan!

This Spotlight honor’s my dear friend Teri Pope! She also dresses up as The Skipper, whilst I dress up as her Little Buddy Gilligan! We’ve yet to cosplay these two characters together, but we’re always been together in spirit! Teri’s not only a huge fan of Cosplay, she’s also a huge fan of the Autobot character Ironhide! It’s now an honor, to spotlight my dear friend!

Transforming a Generation! A Shout Out To Jack Angel!

Jack_Angel

I haven’t spotlighted a favorite talent in a while, and since Jack Angel has always been one of my favorites! He had to be to be a first! If you’ve read his profile on voice chasers, you’ll find he’s worked on everything! He’s a brilliant actor! But I’ve always leaned more towards his Transformer characters.

Jack’s unforgettable as Astrotrain!  “It’s always the same thing. I fly them to points unknown, exhaust all my fuel, and they get to have all the fun.” 

A personal favorite with Astrotrain!

Pictured with Treat! At Retro Con!

Designing a Retro blog, that centers on the fans and collecting, can be exciting and cool! Especially when you have so many talented friends! In saying that.. I spotlight my friend Treat! He’s costumed many characters including: The Thundercat’s villain Mumm-ra, Doctor Who and The Goblin King from Labyrinth! Of course I’m only naming a few.. I’ll let Trick tell the rest, in this fun little interview.

Scream: Having known you for years Treat, I know just how geeky you can be! I of course say that in a good way. But if you had to pick just one favorite what would be it? [Movies, television shows, etc?]

Counting costumes, how many do you have and is there a favorite?

Treat: Movies are my favorite. Any great movie that allows me to escape for a couple hours from the some of the madness that’s happening in the world these days. I have so many favorites! But if I had to list a couple it would be The Empire Strikes Back and Tim Burton’s first Batman. I have about a dozen or so. I have 4 favorites. My Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Jack Harness, My Batman and my 10th Doctor costume.
