The iconic image of cosplay: Sean Connery in "men's bikini"Pictolic
Dystopia "Zardoz", filmed in 1974 — definitely one of the strangest films in history. The action of this sci-Fi paintings by John Barmenom, occurs on earth in the year 2293. The main character zed played by Sean Connery, long before Borat dressed in "men's bikini" and felled all over the place! Did he know that his image in this ridiculous garb will become iconic and will cosplay as all and Sundry?
There is nothing more stupid, absurd and ridiculous image in the career of legendary Scottish artist than brawny, mustachioed man named Zed, dressed in red shorts with suspenders-cartridges.
The action takes place in 2293-M. By that time, human civilization was divided into two camps: some people live in an ideal society Vortex, which is controlled by a supercomputer, others live outside the perfect world, crawling in the mud, rape, kill and eat each other, and obey the will of the Godhead Zardoz, which is in the form of a Greek mask.
But in reality it is not a deity, and technological apparatus, which is controlled by a scientist who knows about the real situation — the idyll is soon destroyed, and the Vortex will forever be plunged into chaos. Among all savages, the scientist chose the most gifted and capable of learning, wanting to prepare him for the exercise of the fateful rescue mission of a dying civilization. Brutal fierce savage name is Zed and he is going to do great things...
The film is really acquired a cult status from the category of "so bad that even good." Well, stupid outfit of the main character added to the charm. For many years, cosplayers from around the world recreate it in memory of the "Zardoz".
