My tour of sadness through Megacon.

Omg

I CANT BELIEVE IM LOOKING AT A COSPLAY OF THAT ONE BIRD GIF

omg

IT’S NOT JUST A BIRD GIF IT’S A VERY IMPORTANT BIRD OF PARADISE CALLED THE SUPERB BIRD OF PARADISE, IT IS FAMOUS BECAUSE OF BBC’S PLANET EARTH HOSTED BY DAVID ATTENBOROUGH OKAY

JESUS

IT STARTS THE DANCE AT 2:05

THE COSPLAYER DOES A SPLENDID JOB OF PERFORMING THE MATING DANCE AS SCRIPTED AND I THINK THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT

HERE IS WIKIPEDIA’S FRANKLY SPECTACULAR JUSTIFICATION FOR THE DANCE

The species has an unusually low population of females, and competition
amongst males for mates is intensely fierce. This has led the species to
have one of the most bizarre and elaborate courtship displays in the
avian world. After carefully and meticulously preparing a “dance floor”
(even scrubbing the dirt or branch smooth with leaves), the male first
attracts a female with a loud call. After the curious female approaches,
his folded black feather cape and blue-green breast
shield springs upward and spreads widely and symmetrically around its
head, instantly transforming the frontal view of the bird into a
spectacular ellipse-shaped
creature that rhythmically snaps its tail feathers against each other,
similar to how snapping fingers work, whilst hopping in frantic circles
around the female. The average female rejects 15-20 potential suitors
before consenting to mate.

THIS COSPLAYER HAS TRULY CAPTURED THE SPIRIT OF THE BIRD AND ITS DANCE AT EVERY LEVEL

OMG AMAZING
