Helping Hands from Labyrinth // Douglas from Terminator 2 // Cosplayer: pagsamiam
I’ve been a fan of Labyrinth, since VHS tapes. And I wanted to do this costume since the 2nd grade, but didn’t know how. I guess thanks to Flight of the Conchords and others cosplaying Bowie’s character, the idea came back! And with many events like movie screenings, renaisance fairs, and Halloween contests, I felt ready. Finding the supplies and putting it together, makes it so much fun. It was fun to see the final product, fall into place and I would keep going without sleep.
Terminator 2 is in my top 10 favorite movies. I’ve recently been watching movie reactions on YouTube. And those reacting to T2, along with myself, get pretty disgusted with the character Douglas, the abusive orderly at Pescadero hospital (who licks Sarah Connor’s face). I thinks he’s never been cosplayed before so I combined him with the T-1000, to make an easier reference.
When I saw silver shiny, mini baking pie cups, they looked liked the T1000’s shot wounds. So I found the uniform of Douglas easily at the thrift store. I added a metalic finger. Foil and steel tape is hard to work with, so I got thermal emergency blankets. The fold creases and wrinkles tighten up. Some people at Los Angeles Comic Con, said I was one of the twins which I believe is the story behind the actors who played the coffee vending machine guard. That makes me just as happy. Because they got T2 right
