Call me Kid Flash — and get your ‘S’ handed to you! The name’s Impulse!

Impulse/Bart Allen by Absterisk (me)

The Flash/Barry Allen by Abudora

Edits by Kiellne and me

Here are some of my favorite (extremely professional looking) shots from my time cosplaying Bart Allen!!! There are more goofier shots in this post here, but these are my most treasured especially with the amazing edits by Kie (LIGHTNING EFFECT, YOU GUYS)! I love speedsters, especially adorable speedforce super-fast aging babies! And as lame as it may sound, Bart holds a special place in my heart because we’re both equally doofy — we practically match to a ‘T’. Not to mention that the Young Justice and Teen Titans runs were really what drew me into comics further (teen superheroes yo u//w//u)!

Once again, the ever flawless (GRANDPA) Flash was by my really good friend, Abudora — who was also the ever dramatic Zuko to my Toph cosplay! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

I hope you guys dig it!

So… 2014 is 5 hours and 10 minutes away and my only form of well wishing or good will is this collage of my 19 cosplays since I first started way back in 2008! I know some of these photos are so incredibly jank, so go ahead and have a good laugh. I know I did (and by that I meant I snorted so hard, my couch is currently lodged in my throat…)!
Remember guys! It’s all about the fun and the absolute jank.
Putting all these photos together reminds me of all the awesome times spent, friends made, and, of course, MONEY FLUSHED /wails loudly. But I wouldn’t have any other way.
Happy soon-to-be New Years, guys! I’m excited and terrified to see what 2014 brings, but mostly terrified and also gassy. ONWARD HOOOOOOoooOOoo!
MAJOR SHOUT OUT TO Syn, FOR BRAVING THESE UNKNOWN WATERS AND HELPING ME PUT IT TOGETHER!!!
P.S. For the Deidara and Yuuta blocks, I had to sub it with their actual images since I couldn’t find my cosplays of it!

"Let’s turn on the juice and see what shakes loose!"

— Beetlejuice (1988)

Here’s my closet cosplay/costume for Halloween 2013! Beetlejuice has always been an idea waiting to happen, and I’m so glad I could hammer through everything to make it “legit”!

Because… who doesn’t want to be the ghost with the most?

So I was Impulse (Bart Allen) for Comic Fiesta 2012 in Malaysia, and these were all the pictures I had in my phone. In fact, other DC inhabitants were there too… and what kind of person would I be if I didn’t hitch a few rides?

As you can see, I am Bart and Bart is me. We are ONE.

Better pictures up soon!

Gags and shenanigans with Team Thugvatar!!!

Toph and Zuko cosplay by Absterisk and Abudora

This was taken at AFAMY, just as well! Running around and posing for photos with the shades on was nothing BUT fun, and it’s all thanks to this photo that got me to run to the mall and pick those shades up. Although, they didn’t sell one in green so I had to paint it over. CREYS.

We even managed to get on a Japanese news segment! Overall, it was totally worth it… eventhough, a handful of people didn’t get the gag number.

Toph Beifong (Avatar: ATLA. The Promise) cosplay by Absterisk.

Taken at Anime Festival Asia: Malaysia. On June 9th, 2012.

My favorite cosplay so far!!! Especially since the freedom of walking around barefoot kicks it to a whole new level.
