Fans of Halo 4 are probably already familiar with The Didact, but if you’re somewhat new to the series, here’s a quick breakdown on the character: He’s basically this massive armored warrior who battles Master Chief for most Halo 4. He’s a Forerunner/Promethean and in the game he set out to resurrect his missing-but-actually-dead people utilizing some dastardly means (read: possible genocide).

Evil FX created a cool cosplay costume of The Didact back in 2013, and they recorded the whole process. The final product is amazing, and the video highlights just how much work went into building the absolutely astounding costume. Now that’s some professional cosplaying!

captain spider-man 2

If you took Captain America and Spider-Man and squished them into one character, they’d combine to make an epic costume. Redditor Darayz worked Cap’s red, white, and blue into a Spidey suit, and it looks striking and weirdly natural. I’m a fan of Captain Spider-Man. He’s still working on the shield, and I hope it has webbed lines in addition to or instead of the usual circles.

See more photos of the neat mash-up after the break.

Cosplayer Irene Astral dressed up as Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite, and she totally nailed all of the details: the dress, the hair, the rose and Elizabeth’s love of books, it’s all there!

trek tote

Totes and purses come in all shapes and sizes, but it’s not always easy to find the geek style and theme that fit you best.

I highly recommend checking out BrookVanGoryDesigns.

From diaper bags to clutches, she’s got a little something for every situation, and most of them are available for custom ordering. That means you can get a Trek hobo bag and a Star Wars diaper bag and have the best of both worlds.

Head after the break to see more of our favorites.

As you know, cosplaying is a labor of love involving a lot of dedication. Recently, cosplayers in Japan have been taking to Twitter to show off how their cosplay compares to the original work. This isn’t just comparing how the costume itself looks to the character, but how well the cosplayer replicated the pose and surrounding environment seen in the original artwork.

The feature photo was taken by ayaran67. Go past the break to see more cool comparison shots that Japanese cosplayers have been tweeting.

calne miku 1

There’s a character in Vocaloid who’s derivative of Hatsune Miku; Calne Ca is a Deino’s original character and has some creepy cyborg traits – like metallic appendages extending from her mouth. Cosplayer Yuri Ros brought the ensemble to life in a recent cosplay, and she did an tremendous job capturing Calne Ca’s look. I’m scared.

Check out a couple more pics of this frightening but impressive costume and see it in action after the break.

Benedict Cumberbatch is perfect–everyone knows that. But do you know why he’s so perfect? He was born in a hidden field behind a crystal cave and a magical waterfall. Yep, that’s right, Benedict Cumberbatch is not like you or me: he’s actually a CumberBatch Kid!
