Your Cat NEEDS This Bonnet


So you know that look your cat gives you? The one where you’re pretty sure it’s contemplating murder? If your cat was wearing this bonnet, you could think of the Firefly line “I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you” and laugh and laugh. Watch your back though.

marvel cosplay covers

Following the success of last year’s round of cosplay variant covers, Marvel has unveiled a new wave of awesome variants that will grace select comics throughout September and October.

“The response to our first set of Cosplay Variants was so incredible, we simply had to do a second wave,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor-in-Chief. “And, of course, we were able to find a great crop of cosplayers with some truly fantastic costumes. We’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on an ever-growing community that continues to show love for us and our characters.”

Check out a gallery of the upcoming covers below. [click to continue…]


Put a tiny dog in a simple Pac-Man costume and set it loose in a maze to pop balloons while dodging googly-eyed ghosts on sticks. That’s a recipe for good Internet right there. See Pac-Pup in action below. [click to continue…]

God, we love the plastic spoon pants so much. But that’s not the only clever thing Manadrunk Cosplay did to bring her Uther Lightbringer cosplay to life. She also employed other cheap materials like cardbord and yoga mats. Take a closer look at this clever cosplay below. [click to continue…]


It’s not every day that you see a Marvel Falcon Backpack. And you sure as hell don’t see many backpacks with actual wings. But those aren’t the only features that make this bag unique:

This Marvel Falcon Backpack with Removable Wings comes to us by way of Sprayground. They make these in limited runs and never produce that combination again, so if you dig this, you’d better jump on it. Besides the removable zip wings (Red wings, literally), it has separate interior laptop and tablet compartments, and is in his traditional red and white color scheme.
