Washington And Lincoln Cosplay Makes For Funny Money
George Washington and Abraham Lincoln could have used some more colorful attire in the portraits that eventually landed them on the front of American currency. Sadly, cosplay had a long way to go when they were alive, but one brave artist risked breaking the law to deface one and five-dollar bills in the name of making these two former Presidents look like Ninja Turtles, Cobra Commander and Batman.
The Great Emancipator shows his geek solidarity by sporting a “Tron” outfit in one of his five-dollar appearances collected by Geekologie. The biggest props, however, definitely have to go out to the one-dollar “300” homage that the artist pulled off with blood-splattering success.
Click onward to the gallery and you’ll find George posing confidently as the adamantium-clawed President who is the best at what he does, as well as Lincoln donning a Power Ranger mask; Red Ranger attire seems appropriate. Check them all out below, and remember: Don’t try this at home, lest you be subject to appropriate legal prosecution.
