Chris Gore Teaches Us About Comedic Cosplay and Upcycles Old T-Shirts

We've known Chris Gore for a few years now and we've admired that he's a man who knows his way around a glue gun. You may know Chris from his popular segment, DVDuesday on Attack of The Show on G4 or from the magazine Film Threat. These days, he's crashing people's podcasts from Delta Vega to Las Vegas on a show called PodCrash. He even crashed my DVD review show, DVD Geeks, twice!

Everytime I've been to Chris' place, I've noticed that he takes the labels off of products and replaces them with cool Batman labels. He also has an interesting way of converting plastic spray bottles into Star Wars and Batman icons. Chris has an Etsy account, he openly crafts and makes a lot of his cosplay pieces by hand, so Chris seemed like the perfect recruit to come aboard on an away mission with us.

Chris attends a ton of conventions and always has something creative on. In our 8th episode, he teaches us how to preserve the design of an old worn-out t-shirt by transforming in into a completely new outfit. At Glue Guns and Phasers we love a good upcycling project, so we beamed down to his "Bat-tio" for this fun tutorial and to hear about his work.
