Seriously, it looks like a cross between Boba Fett and Lara Croft. I guess you could ask, what if Lara Croft was the last Mandalorian in the galaxy far, far away? Either way... 10/10 and awesome!
Two Sith, but only one is a Sith Lord... and one is a long-departed ancestor of the other. Though it looks like Darth Maul has let himself go, the guy on the left is Revan. (SW:KoToR)
Those guys aren't dressed as anything from Fallout - they're portraying some form of Imperial Guard (or similar) from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The multiple Imperial Aquilae and the laspistol are a dead giveaway.
Image 38 might be Alexia Tarabotti from The Parasol Protectorate series of books. It's a Steampunk style series with some Slayer sensibilities and probably some of the Romance genre mixed in. Series was suggested to me by a friend but haven't read it yet. I do know her parasol is a major weapon for her. Image 51 looks like someone from The League of S.T.E.A.M. (Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparition Management) which is a live action Steampunk version of the Ghostbusters with several videos on Youtube and their own site: http://www.steampunkghostbusters.com/League_of_STEAM/Salutations.html Here's another picture of the same guy from the back, showing his awesome proton pack http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/san_diego_comic_con_2010/pictures/14.php#highlighted_picture Image 63 might also be part of the League, but no backpacks makes the guessing harder. Pretty sure Image 71 is part of the League; I bet that cross on his back has a sharpened stake on the long end.
I believe there is some kind of Jules Verne Steampunk movie or book coming soonish, I recall hearing something about it. All of these fit the style. Anyone know more?
I dont know which character, but I think it has to do with the Anime and Manga called Bleach, the style and face mask look like the faction called the Arrancar.
Another possibility for all the steampunk-like characters are Girl Genius characters. Yet another: from the movie Golden Compass, or Stardust lightning catchers, or the new Sherlock Holmes movie...
But knocking points off for misspelling my name - it's Sonja with a "j". :O Seriously, I'd love to send swag to all the TR peeps who helped correct my character defects. ;)
People wanna see TRON livin, not workin!!! Glad to hear that of all the characters someone could pick out, that they chose TRON! That's awesome! I'm glad TOSH.0 did an episode with TRON guy! Maybe he'll get a cameo appearance in the new movie... ha!
I will be attending Fan Expo in August, and taking lots of pics, which if Sonja would like could be posted here. I may need your help with some of the more esoteric ones.
you were simply trying to blend the two. :D My dad still spells my name with a "y" ... absolutely no excuse for that!
