Cosplay: Now and Then

Assalamualaikum / Peace be Upon You

This time I'm going to talk about a somewhat hobby of mine apparently; Cosplay. What is cosplay you might ask? Cosplay is short for "costume play" and it is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play. A broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

Avengers VS X-Men: My Take

Assalamualaikum / Peace be Upon You

This time I'm going to talk about Marvel's latest big arc which is Avengers VS X-Men. Previously you had seen superheroes being pitted against each other during Civil War and Secret Invasion. Now, Marvel Comics present to you an arc where Avengers will fight against X-Men. 

As you know, X-Men is a group of mutants that were created by Charles Xavier which is you know that they are consisted of mutant superheroes, but Avengers is a group of superheroes that were created by the superheroes themselves which we are unable to determine which one are on the Avengers' side or the X-Men's. But apparently Wolverine is on the Avengers' even though he is one of the X-Men. The readers again being asked which sides are they stand on.

Friend Zone


 Assalamualaikum / Peace Be Upon You

Recently, there is this topic that suddenly popped up during recent conversations that I had with several people that I've met. The topic is about getting into the 'Friend Zone'. What is a 'Friend Zone' you might ask? Here's what Wikipedia has to say about it;
In popular culture, the "friend zone" refers to a platonic relationship where one person wishes to enter into a romantic relationship while the other does not. The most typical friend zone situation involves a man that is romantically interested in a woman who does not reciprocate or is unaware of his interest. It is generally considered to be an undesirable situation by the lovelorn person. Once the friend zone is established, it is said to be difficult to move beyond that point in a relationship.
