IMPERIALISM

*cue in the Imperial march*

On my last blog post, I told you guys that I’d show you what I copped at the Bata X Star Wars event.

Famous for their black and white armor and helmet and also their potato aiming skills, the Stormtroopers of the Star Wars Universe have been known all around the galaxy for hundreds of years.

Now, the forever iconic Stormtrooper, has come to grace our feet with their presence through the Bata tennis shoes.

Made with a canvas-like upper and a plain rubber mid/outsole, and the iconic helmet design, it’s simplicity makes this pair stand out a whole lot.

Carry on the late Emperor’s plans while rocking this pair with basically any #OOTD you have in mind.

If you’re interested in purchasing this or any of the shoes from the Bata X Star Wars limited edition collection, head on over to the Bata branch at SM Megamall.

*UPDATE* Second trailer for VENOM

**UPDATE**

Sony has just released the HD version of the trailer after it got leaked! I removed the leaked footage with the new one! You’re welcome!

The first trailer was underwhelming. No footage whatsoever showing Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) as Venom or even at least with the symbiote. This second trailer, however, has been like a 100x better. You get to see Venom in the flesh already! Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think of it!

What’d you guys think of it? Let me know down below!

ILLUMINATI

Not THE Illuminati, but the one from Marvel Comics.

This group is made up of Professor X, Black Bolt, Namor, Doctor Strange, Iron Man, and Mr. Fantastic.

I’ll provide a link here if you guys want to know more about them.

Now, I didn’t really plan on making any blog posts about my sketches but I am extremely proud of this set that I have made.

I wanted to make three groups of two with each set having a distinct trait or the characters having something similar with each other.

In this first set, I started with the two kings first.

Black Bolt and Namor.

For the second set, I put Professor X and Doctor Strange together. Something about them makes it feel like they’re good together because of the traits that they have. A good leader, they’re powers, etc.

Last but certainly not the least, I put two of the greatest minds together, Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic.

And finally, I present to you, the ILLUMINATI 

This set actually tested my patience and determination. There were so many times where I wanted to just quit and give up on this set just because I suddenly felt like it was too tedious and a waste of time. I finished it though. I had to. It felt like I would let myself down if I didn’t. I pushed through and here we are. The biggest and best sketches I have ever made in my personal opinion.

Now, who’s next? 

Any suggestions on who I should draw next? Comment down below!

 

LOUD BASSTARD

NOT. A. SPEAKER.

Well, in a way, it is. It’s more of an amplifier. Imagine playing songs on your phone and putting it inside a mug or a cup to amplify the sound, except 100x BETTER. 

We didn’t actually buy this. It was actually given to us during a trip hosted by Ford and Bambike (if you guys want to know what we did during that day, click here).

Personally, I don’t always use the Loud Basstard. Why? Whenever I play songs on my phone, I usually use it at the same time to play games, go on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other stuff I usually do on my phone. The Loud Basstard requires you to put your phone in the slot and leave it there the entire time. It’s good for people who aren’t on their phones almost 100% of the time. 

Quality-wise, it doesn’t sound like you put your phone in a tin can to amplify the sound. It sounds good. Not great but not bad at all.

Love it. Like it. Hate it. To each his own. I just LIKE it. That’s it. Nothing too special about it.

STAR LABS

I FINALLY GOT ONE!

I’ve been wanting this shirt for a while now but I haven’t been able to get one since the stores near me DO NOT have this in stock. I mean, c’mon man, WHY?! It’s a sought after shirt and you don’t have it in stock? SMH.

Fast forward to a few days ago (same time I got my pink H&M shirt), but just to make the long story short, I saw the shirt, I tried the shirt, I bought the shirt. It was that simple. No more second thoughts. I had to get it. Though I was thinking of getting the sweater instead of the shirt, but with the unpredictable weather (which is hot and dry most of the time), the shirt was more reasonable to get, and it was cheaper. 

I got this shirt at Pop Culture inside Trinoma for P400.

Sunday #OOTD

Waddup guys? Took too long for me to come back with a new post? Yeah, I know. Sorry about that (insert peace sign emoji).

Anyway,

We celebrated my dad’s birthday yesterday (Happy Birthday!), and yes it did land on a Sunday, so we went out to have lunch and then mass in the evening.

I honestly didn’t know what to wear, well, except for the pants and shoes, those I had covered already. Luckily, mom was there to save the day! She let me use one of my dad’s long sleeves.

And voilĂ , instant #OOTD!

The soft and simple colors just makes it so easy to look at and it’s very appealing! Just partner it with a simple watch, wax your hair or whatever it is you feel like doing to it, and you are done!

I also love those pants. So comfy and it may not look like it, but it is stretchable and soft, plus the tapered ends just make it look extra clean.

You may or may not notice it, but those shoes of mine (Onitsuka Tiger), are really beaten up already. But just like Chuck Taylor’s, they look good even if they’re a bit messed up already. Maybe it’s just me, I really don’t know.

That’s about it. Thanks for taking your time to read this short post! Hopefully I get to post regularly already!

Just comment down below on whatever it is you feel like asking me!

The Red Band trailer for the Deadpool movie has been officially released!

For all the young readers under the age of 18 out there, do not watch this trailer. Do not watch it. R-18 for a reason people. 

Since the leak of the trailer during the SDCC, the cam recorded trailer has become viral already on almost all social media platforms. 

Unlike Warner Bros, who officially released the trailer to The Suicide Squad due to them not being able to contain the leaked trailer, 20th Century Fox did not try to contain it (or maybe they did, but I don’t think they’d be able to do it) but promised to release the trailer soon.

And they did. 

The trailer. Is. Awesome. R-18 baby!

Check out the trailer!

What do you think? I’m excited to see the movie!

The final trailer for Josh Trank’s reboot of The Fantastic Four is here!

This. Is. The. Fantastic. Four. That. We. Deserve.

I used to love The Human Torch (I still do), but The Thing. Oh my God. The Thing. I have a new favorite. They made him look so tuff (unlike the previous movies where he looked so boring/dull). 

And Doom. He looks, honestly, weird yet cool. He looks like a living Kryptonite. Nevertheless, he still looks cool. 

Check out the out-of-this-world trailer:

Awesome? Cool? Great? Fantastic? Let me know what you think by commenting below!

Warner Bros. finally released the HD trailer of Suicide Squad!

The guys from Warner Bros. have officially released the trailer for the Suicide Squad, after someone leaked the footage from comic-con.

Nothing new is added in the trailer. But you do get to see everything better (well, duh!). 

I do have to say, the Joker does look terrifying. 

Check out the trailer below and see for yourself:
