There is no question cosplay has become an artform, but wow some cosplayers take it to another level. Top tier cosplay looks like it is straight out of a blockbuster film [adaptation of the game its representing]. The props alone are works of art. Add that to meticulously handcrafted costumes, and you got a stunning sight to behold; your favorite characters have taken flesh and now exist in your world.

Last but not least, we were completely blown away when we found out one of our favorite cosplayers, Crystal Graziano, took on a 1942 WWII-style Cammy from our Bombshell design. Here’s a few more amazing shots of her.Crystal Graziano as Cammy from Street Fighter

Meat Bun is thrilled to take part in the upcoming Diversions art show at Giant Robot LA and humbled to be showcasing a selection of our artwork alongside some amazing talent.
Diversions begins this Saturday, March 10 and runs until April 4. The group exhibition features Sean Chao, Feric, Jude Buffum, French, Monyo Monyo and Paul Roberston, whose work you may recognize from our Snack Attack and Big Money, Big Prizes tees (or the web site you’re looking at right now).
The opening reception will happen this Saturday March 10th 2012 from 6:30-10pm. We’ll have some prints of our work on display–and for purchase, of course–that are exclusive to the show.
Some additional details from the release:
Jude Buffum from Philadelphia crosses 8-bit art and social and pop culture commentary. Monyo Monyo from Japan creates wearable masks that are furry and powerful. Feric from Taiwan is known for his delicate and cyber-detailed pieces. Originally from Taiwan but now a resident of Los Angeles, Sean Chao creates astonishing dioramic worlds. French from England evokes metal music and its iconography. Meat Bun, our comrades from multiple pop up shops and Game Night events will display some of their iconic work. In attendance for the opening will be Paul Robertson, Sean Chao and the trio who make Meat Bun.
Diversions will be on view at GR2 which is located at 2062 Sawtelle Blvd LA, CA 90025. Be there!
The Meat Bun pop up shop at Giant Robot is now open for business! For a limited time, you can buy the latest (and sold out!) designs from Meat Bun at GR2 in Los Angeles, California–including tons of stuff that’s out of stock on our web store. Of course, you can also buy about a bazillion other fascinating things from GR2, including art, apparel, housewares and much, much more. If you’re in the area, grab some Meat Bun at GR2, where we also co-host Game Night bi-monthly.
Thanks to Haunted Temple’s Skulls of the Shogun and Reverge Labs’ Skullgirls, Giant Robot’s Game Night 5 was a big old success. Our late June Game Night was one of the biggest yet, with folks swarming the game stations indoors and outdoors, helping us stay open and running way later than planned.
Credit to Adam Robezzoli of Attract Mode fame and the Angry Bananas Extra thanks to the big crowds of game enthusiasts, game developers and Meat Bun fans for coming out to show their support of indie games and local game events. Take a look at some of the snapshots from the night’s event, with way more over at the Giant Robot blog. (There are a few Meat Bun sneak peeks at the next couple lines in here, if you’re curious!)
We visited graphic designer extraordinaire and mega-hyper-clever artist Olly Moss’ art show at Gallery 1988 on Melrose, a show dedicated to silhouette portraits ranging from Peter Venkman from Ghostbusters to Team Fortress 2 classes to Judge Dredd to Andre the Giant. It was packed, pieces sold out immediately and we’re fortunate enough to have amazing video from Olly’s show, thanks to Threadless. Next time, we’ll make sure to line up hours in advance. Maybe days.
