Every year hundreds of thousands of people go to comic book conventions and unknown to them, like the fast food joints they eat at while at the cons, there is a secret menu of items. This is Secret Convention Items.
Cosplaying has been a tradition for thousands of years with roots in the theatrical arts – we those early actors not playing characters in costumes – that idea which defines the cosplay?
A more recent trend though has been for functional costume parts from realistic extending adimantium claws to glowing Lantern Corp rings and Kryptonite hearts.
This week though we discuss the working Cyclops visor.
Cyclops, a member of the X-men uses his optic eye beams that have incredible force to knock back his enemies and to destroy obstacles. Due to an eye injury though, Cyclops must wear glasses to control the beams, lest they destroy things on accident.
Jared Blackman created 10 pairs of special Cyclops visors that are able to control and manipulate optic blasts according to him. That said though, nobody living has optic blasts to try out so the jury is still out. Also they may just be stunner shades.
