Dynamic Cosplay Presents: Superior Lantern, Blue Lantern Superior Spiderman
Cosplayer: Kenneth Hollant
DCN: What made you create this character, why ?
Ken: I was looking into a custom spiderman costume when I saw a deviantart picture for a blue lantern spiderman last year but I couldn’t find an actual pattern of the costume . By the time a pattern came out it blew up and I felt as though I would use uniqueness I was looking for . for the base I chose superior spiderman because … Well … He is superior haha ( and I think that is among spiderman’s best costumes).. Blackest night is probably my favorite major comic event and the blue lanterns are arguably the strongest lanterns (with the help of a green lantern) so I just wanted to combine the 2 and voila! A superior lantern is born.
DCN: Outside of cosplay do you have any other interest/hobbies?
Ken: Even though cosplay is life I am a HUGE otaku ( Anime nerd) and I spend countless hours building gundam model kits. Along with hanging out with friends and defending the galaxy in destiny.
DCN: How do your friends and family feel about you cosplaying? Are they supportive?
Ken: Both my family and friends are super supportive. A bunch of My friends actually want to start cosplaying and join in on the fun.
DCN: How long have you been cosplaying?
Ken: Officially since nycc 2014 but i had some Halloween costumes before then.
DCN: Why do you cosplay?
Ken: I cosplay because I love how you can just be yourself and do what you love without the scrutiny of others . Cosplay is freedom and I love seeing people add their own personal twists on their costumes. Also I have met a bunch of really awesome people through cosplay.
DCN: What was your favorite cosplay project?
Ken: This hands down is my favorite cosplay because I was able to add my own personal touch to everything and it came out epic (and my favorite color is blue).
DCN: How long did it take you to get this costume together?
Ken: From the drawing board to reality, about 3 months . Plus the usual blood sweat and tears (with a side of raging).
DCN: Do you have any cosplays you will never do and why?
Ken: I would NEVER do something like a gundam or a mech suit because walking around,with those props all day can get pretty annoying and I’m lazy
Plus I would be scared to get it damaged.
DCN: Why do you think cosplay has become so popular in the last few years?
Ken: Honestly I think it is our generation and everyone exploring their interests. Especially with the rise in superhero movies and shows there are a ton of new characters / costumes to choose from.
DCN: Which DC character may we see next from you?
Ken: I am really leaning toward Captain Marvel / Shazam or Blue Beetle.
