Flower headbands, sunglasses, flashing lights and wicked beats. Not to mention bodies splattered in paint bobbing around, shuffling and jumping in unison. That is the view Villa Paradizo brought to downtown Montreal’s very own Crescent Street on the 5th and 6th of September.
In an intentionally clichéd and cheesy amateur indie action film mirroring 80’s classics like Commando, Rambo, and anything from Chuck Norris, Cold Blood follows Government agent, John Kane, as he vanquishes terrorist mastermind Dmitri Rascoff’s evil plot and proves vengeance is a dish best served… Cold Blooded.
With Otakuthon having just passed, (for most readers), if you were out and about, you probably crossed paths with someone dressed in an outrageous getup, perhaps complete with a crazy wig and handmade props. These people are what we call Cosplayers.

This is my second time ever preparing a complex costume. This year, since my friend and I decided to do Otakuthon together, we coordinated and prepared Punk Schoolgirl costumes. Doc Martens, denim vests and torn shear stockings to go with a pretty traditional schoolgirl uniform. Cute, quick, and fun.
