Week 43 – 300/365
Ever since 2007 when 300 came out in the theaters, it is common for webcomics and the like to make a reference to the movie in their medium. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of shirtless muscular men., so you will have to deal with several photos of popular television/web shows.
First, let me introduce Dr. Horrible (with a Ph.D in Horribleness), the tragic unHero of the three part web series “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog“. I say unHero because Dr. Horrible is obviously a villain, but you have to root for him like you normally root for the hero.
The next two are Sokka and Toph from the show “Avatar: The Last Airbender“. I saw a lot of people cosplaying as the Avatar group from the show, not the movie. Yes there is a difference, the main one being that not only were these costumes more accurate then the ones with the Hollywood budget, but every person that played Sokka maintained the character’s sense of humor.
Toph didn’t appear in the movie, but was a kept character for the second half of the series. A blind girl who could harness the power of the earth and assisted the main character with learning her skills to save the world.
