Hulu used their interview time at Comic-Con to ask a handful of celebrities — from Shatner to The Dean from Community — for their go-to cosplays costumes. Then we illustrated the results. Remember: These are 100 percent real.
1. William Shatner as “French Bikini Lady”
Shatner: “Well, I would go probably with a bikini. Yeah, I’m in great shape. I’ve got a six pack and I would go in a bikini. [I would be] a French bikini character.”
In a post-Geraldo selfie world, this would no longer be considered outré.
2. Roseanne as a Zombie Wearing a Tinfoil Hat
Roseanne: “I was thinking of [dressing up]. I had too many ideas as usual and was then paralyzed by panic and not being able to make a decision. I was wanting to wear a tin foil hat and then I wanted horns, but settled for something subdued.”
Her other ideas? “ Zombie, Hollywood agent.” Eh, same difference.
3. Wayne Knight as a Romulan
Knight: “Perhaps I would be dressed in some form of Romulan attire, because everyone dresses as Klingons. But the question is which version of Romulan do you use? Do you do the TV series Romulan, the movie Romulan or do you do the later series Romulan? It’s hard to know.”
Leave it to Newman nerd out. Hope he’s cool with a TNG Romulan.
4. David Boreanaz as Dick Tracy
Boreanaz: “Dick Tracy. Big fan. I love the gadgets. He’s a man of simplicity. I like old time detectives and that whole era. Like that whole franchise has been put to rest somewhere and should come back.”
You hear that Hart Hanson? Next time Booth on Bones is in a coma we want a 1930s detective story.
5. Emily Deschanel as Wonder Woman
Deschanel: “I love Wonder Woman.”
And we love Emily as Wonder Woman. Make this happen, DC Comics!
6. Yvette Nicole Brown as Yoda
Brown: “I’d do Yoda in a heartbeat. I’d be Yoda so fast.”
Shirley is the wisest character on Community, so makes sense this does.
7. Jim Rash as Orko from He-Man
The brightest timeline is the one in which Dean Pelton is the Orko to Jeff’s Prince Adam.
8. Adventure Time’s Jeremy Shada (Finn), John DiMaggio (Jake), Olivia Olson (Marceline) and Tom Kenny (Ice King) as an Assortment of Weirdos
Jeremy Shada: “Nightwing!”
John DiMaggio: “I would love to get that Bender outfit that somebody had from a couple of years ago. It was beautiful.”
That sounds like fun on a bun.
Olivia Olson: “I was actually having this conversation with my friend yesterday. We [were saying we] would need to think of something really cool, but I think I would probably just go as Marceline because it would be so incognito and there’s so many of them that they wouldn’t even think that I would do something like that.”
So Marceline. But what would Hambo wear?
Tom Kenny: “I applaud [cosplayers’] commitment, but having been on camera where you have to wear prosthetics and beards that they glue on you, I would never voluntarily put on uncomfortable stuff just to walk around. I understand the whole cosplay thing, but oh my god, you realize that being a superhero, you would just be sweating your balls off all the time if you were Spiderman. So I think I would cosplay as a middle-aged man who’s gone to Hawaii.”
Never thought we’d say this, but anyone else with Ice King on this one?
