Something magical happens when Lars Johnson puts on his costume and makeup before taking the stage as Shimbleshanks. “It definitely is a lot of work to get into the makeup, the costume and the wig but it really does add an extra layer of feeling …
Playing a superhero on the big screen may look like an easy gig, but there can certainly be some drawbacks. Lucky for us, Ryan Reynolds is not afraid to share them.
Crime fighters like Reynolds’ Deadpool character wear incredibly tight costumes, and as he revealed to E! News’ Sibley Scoles, his mom is his good luck charm when it comes to slipping in the suit with ease.
Sitting down with the cast of Deadpool 2 at Comic-Con 2018, Reynolds said he no longer deals with uncomfortable chaffing while filming in his famous red costume. As the actor described, “It’s a very specific system. It’s a homemade recipe my mom came up with. She lives in Vancouver so she can come over and get it on me before we shoot.”
Reynolds joked that every single one of his co-stars also uses Tammy Reynolds’ secret remedy, adding, “She did the whole cast actually before we came out here.”
(Mama Reynolds actually joined her famous son at the annual convention in San Diego, so it’s possible she lent a helping hand to the other actors in the Marvel flick.)
And when asked what Ryan’s proud mom thinks of his potty mouth, he responded, “Am I allowed to cuss in front of my mom? She’s heard it all. I’m the youngest of four boys.”

Before Spider-Man swings back onto the big screen, you can play as the web-slinging superhero in Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 game. And you can do it not only wearing Spidey’s most recent white-spider-themed suit, but his classic red and blue outfit.
PlayStation’s new game trailer, which debuted Thursday at Comic-Con International, shows that Mayor Norman Osborn isn’t willing to take any risks during his reelection bid in New York City. He hires mercenary Silver Sable and her security force Silver Sable International to restore order to the city, and that also means she has to stop someone the mayor blames for all the mayhem: Spider-Man.
In addition to seeing Spider-Man in action against Silver Sable, we see him in his classic superhero costume fighting the Scorpion, the Vulture, Electro, Rhino and Negative Man.
But if you don’t feel like being Spider-Man, the trailer makes it seem like playing as Spidey’s pal and love interest Mary Jane is an option as a playable character.

The sound of balloons popping and the smell of latex was in the air towards the end of the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce’s Summer Parade Sunday.
That’s because a 13-foot balloon Minion was walking through. The balloon costume is the creation of local brothers Richard and Preston Roy, who are trying to beat a Guinness World Record with the character.
“Being in the parade was on Preston’s bucket list,” Richard, who often goes by his stage name, Richy Roy, shared. “We kind of drew our inspiration from the Macy’s Day Parade, where you have those huge balloon things floating down the sky. It’s something really incredible.”
The massive balloon costume was an incredible sight to see for the crowds viewing the local parade as well, as evidenced by their shocked and smiling faces. The brothers walked the costume through the streets by each taking residence in one of the legs of the character, giving the Minion a spin every once in a while.
The brothers are hoping the costume, which took over 50 hours and 1,300 balloons to create, will break a world record. The balloon costume was measured at 13-feet five inches tall before the parade. That information is being submitted to Guinness World Records. Roy said the current record holder is around nine-feet tall.
The massive balloon character will be on display at the Weyburn Curling Rink during Fair Days.
