Yuri on Ice Breaks Barriers

'Yuri on Ice', a popular anime series, was groundbreaking for its portrayal of a same-sex relationship between Yuri and Victor. Their relationship progresses from coach and student to romantic partners, culminating in a heartwarming kiss that was celebrated for its positive depiction.

Hey there, you majestic creatures of light and sparkle! It’s that time of year again—PRIDE month—and this time around, we’re taking it up a notch. So polish those horns, fluff up those rainbow wings, and slap on some sparkle. The Unicorns & Rainbow's PRIDE Party at Millennium FANDOM BAR is about to get glitteringly real. Why? Because this isn't just any bash—it's a flamboyant festival where your wildest fantasies take flight. And guess who's joining the fabulous fray? That’s right, even Deadpool, the sass-master of spandex, is gearing up to go full unicorn fanboy with us. Because if there’s anything Deadpool loves almost as much as chimichangas, it’s a good party—especially one with unicorns.

So, whether you're a die-hard cosplayer, a lover of all things bright and beautiful, or just in it for the fun, gear up for a night where we celebrate love, diversity, and the magic of truly outrageous outfits. Let’s make this PRIDE Month shimmer brighter than a disco ball in a hall of mirrors. Get ready to strut, flutter, and sashay through the most enchanting night of the year. Because remember, at the Unicorns & Rainbow's PRIDE Party, ‘Cosplay or not, Let’s Fandom!’

Dress to Impress—or to Just Plain Dazzle

1. Sparkle Like You Mean It: Sparkle isn't just an accessory; it's a statement. This isn’t just a party; it’s an extravaganza of expression. So, think glitter, sequins, and all the colors of the rainbow exploded onto a canvas—now make that a costume. If it shines, shimmers, or sparkles, it’s your go-to material. And if you’re thinking, "Can I pull off a full-body glitter suit?" The answer is a resounding "Heck, yes!" Because at a party where unicorns meet rainbows, more is more and over-the-top is just right.

2. Wings and Things: Wings aren’t just for birds; they’re for anyone who wants to soar above the mundane. Pegasus wings, fairy wings, or even dragon wings—if it’s fantastical and fabulous, strap it on. Remember, this is your night to soar high on the winds of fabulousness. If it’s your first time making wings, just remember: bigger is better. There’s no such thing as too big when you’re channeling your inner mythical creature at a PRIDE party.

3. Horns of a Dilemma: To horn or not to horn? That is never the question. The answer should always be a thunderous yes. Whether you’re crafting them from lightweight materials like foam, buying them from a crafty wizard online, or repurposing something utterly bizarre—make sure they stand tall and proud. Your horns are your crown, so wear them like the royalty you are.

4. Pride Symbols with a Twist: Weave in the iconic rainbow or other pride symbols to shout your identity loud and proud. Whether it’s a cape sweeping behind you as you parade through the crowd or a tastefully done face paint job, let your true colors shine through. It’s about expressing who you are with a touch of magical flair, so don’t hold back on the colors or the creativity.

Deadpool's Pansexuality

Did you know Deadpool is canonically pansexual? The character's co-creator, Fabian Nicieza, confirmed that Deadpool is "omnisexual" and his fluid sexuality has been depicted in both comics and subtly hinted at in films, embodying a free-spirited and all-encompassing approach to love.

5. Deadpool’s Cameo: No, not the actual Merc with a Mouth, but why not channel a bit of his irreverent spirit? Mix in some Deadpool elements—maybe those trademark katanas with rainbow ribbons? Or how about a unicorn backpack brimming with cheeky charm? After all, when Deadpool and unicorns collide, you know it’s going to be a party to remember.
