This is a project born on the day Lou Scheimer, the father of dreams, began his very own journey to the Great Beyond. It is our homage to this great man, who brought magic, passion and especially a lot of wonderful and true friends into our lifes.
Lou, you may be gone, but you’ll never be forgotton! And this is especially for you!
This is our Jake & Eddie Cosplay:
Here are some samples from our first two photo shootings:
The whole story (with lots of pictures, written in german but hopefully self-explaining) you can find here:
I´m the other half of our little cosplay team, the one who came up with the idea of cosplaying Jake and Eddie.
I´ve been a big FGB fan for many years now, and I´ve been into cosplaying for years as well, so one day I thought it would be wonderful to be able to combine both interests. And so it happened. I asked Leela aka Tasha, with whom I am writing and talking about the show on a regular basis, if she would participate, and guess what? She gladly said "yes".
We already had a lot of fun with this cosplay, and we will be around as Jake and Eddie at Fed Con, Europe´s biggest science fiction convention in Düsseldorf, Germany, at the end of May. We look forward to it!
By the way, we´re looking for a Tracy or, even better, for a Prime Evil to join us! Just letting you know… maybe you´re interested .
Well, I guess now it´s up to me to provide you with some more photos, so here they are :
Jake is practicing with the Dematerializer – or is he facing a ghost?
The Ghostgummer, Eddie´s favorite weapon!
Freeze, Ghost, and let me catch you!
The Dematerialisator, the main weapon of the Ghostbusters
The Spectre Snare
And now ... Leisure Time!
After the work is done, the boys like to change into something more comfortable. Streetwear it is, but in a very unique style! But take a look for yourself:
Thanks for the welcome, kaison, and thanks for your kind words. I´m glad you like our little cosplay project. It took us almost a year to make it come real.
From Thursday on we´ll be around as Jake and Eddie at Fed Con in Düsseldorf, Germany. We look forward to it, and we´re quite excited to see how people will react to our costumes (if they recognize them).
More photos will probably follow !
By the way, we´re looking for Tracy to complete the team, or, even better, for Prime Evil. The Ghostbusters facing their greatest enemy and fighting him would be even more fun !
Yey, we're back from FedCon 2015, and it was so impressive! There are so many people out there, who know the boys and we got 100% great, wonderful, warmhearted feedback for our cosplay. It didn't matter if the people knew the show or »only« loved the costumes, if they were real ghostbuster fans (or even did a real ghostbuster cosplay themselves) or not, or if they were especially (without knowing the show ) fond of Tracy, our gorilla who joined us as well of course; it was a great big weekend, and the boys got so much attention. And that's just the beginning!
By the way, if you like to get an impression of FedCon, take a look here: Con Video Especially take a closer look at time index: 1:46 and 10:25!

I saw pictures of you two on the German Ghostbusters facebook page as a nod at the cool take, the leader himself a fan of filmation ghostbusters too. (German Ghostbusters are the nicest of the Sony/Columbia Pictures cosplay franchises. BTW )
If you take a closer look a timecode 10:10 – 10:18 you can see Jake and Eddie walking in the background .
Thank you, Devil, for the links! It´s nice to see that our friendly colleagues have added two pics of us to their facebook page! Also, one member of the German Ghostbusters with whom we had a little chat at the convention told us that he liked our cosplay and provided Tracy with a German GB pin. Tracy was so proud!
kaison: On one hand you are right but you would be amazed how realistic the weapons look on some photos. It's apparently a matter of perspektive. Maybe the company which build the weapons didn't get to do it this way.

Frankly, I have no words - no human words - to describe how awesome your CosPlaying project looks to my eyes and - most of all - to my soul.
Tasha, your love for the Filmation Ghostbusters is endless and astonishing. Thank you so much for being here and share your "vision" with us. You're one of the best and greatest "things" which ever happened to our fandom.
Your friend looks gorgeous too.
I can't even imagine how much dedition, work and love you both put into this CosPlaying masterpiece.
This thread will be an "ANNOUNCEMENT" for months !!!!!!!!
