Carpet Costumes

In the world of cosplay, people don’t generally expect to get into trouble for dressing up as well-known characters like Superman, Spider-Man or Spock. But the designers of the hotel carpets for the Marriott Marquis Atlanta in Georgia, USA didn’t see the cosplay tributes in a positive light, which is a real shame.

Apparently the carpet costumes were so popular that one of the original cosplayers offered a version of the Marriott carpet pattern for the presumably vast number of people who also wanted to dress up in carpet-themed camo gear. Seeing this, carpet designers Couristan Inc. sent cosplay suppliers Volpin Props a Cease & Desist letter.

As one commenter pointed out, “If they were smart, they would contact you to do promotions for them.” After all, what other carpet manufacturer has its own fandom?
 
The absurdity is just laughable!

Together Life Gets Better is a Malaysian festival of hope that celebrates diversity, love and harmony. One of the many highlights was The Girrrly Show – featuring Dara, Arisha and Rozz and a special guest appearance by Shelah who is making her return! 4X Wow! The Pisco Bar at Jalan Mesui, off Jalan Nagasari in KL hosted this enthralling event yesterday:
