Batman mixes well with lace – who knew?! These Batman panties come in a three pack and are all black and yellow (of course) and feature neat graffiti-style designs. One pair has the Bat symbol, another has Batman’s cowl, and the final pair has the symbol and the word “Batman.” They’re hipster style with high cut legs, and the lace gives them a nice racy touch.

spider-woman costume 1

Batgirl isn’t the only superhero to get a stylish modern costume upgrade; Spider-Woman is following in her footsteps. Jessica Drew has been wearing the same costume for almost 40 years, but that’s about to change. It’s about time! Artist Kris Anka came up with the look that debuted yesterday in the Spider-Man Unlimited mobile game and will premiere on comic book pages in March.

The old outfit was all about the spandex, but now? Drew gets black pants, gloves, leather, and a versatile jacket that works as street wear and a superhero costume. It looks edgier, more practical, and I give it a month before cosplayers are wearing it.

See a couple more pics of the new threads after the break.

predator son of a bitch patch

Remember that scene in Predator when Dutch and Dillon first see each other? Dutch says, “You son of a bitch!” as a friendly greeting, and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers clasp their muscled arms together in a gratuitous way. This silly but great patch from Future Zine captures that moment. It might be the greatest patch ever made. It should be a merit badge or something.

Check out the scene from the movie after the break…

santa doctor doom

No one can resist the Christmas spirit, not even Doctor Doom. The villain took the place of Santa Claus once in an issue of Marvel’s What The-?! series, and Imgur user CaptCash used it as inspiration for this spectacular Santa Doom costume. He even made a naughty list to carry around, and it includes Josh Trank, director of the upcoming Fantastic Four film. I love it.

cat purse 1

Fellow cat enthusiasts: prepare yourself, for you are about to learn of the most wonderful handbag of all time. Are you ready? It’s a purse made with a picture of a cat! Just look at it. Instructables user push_reset crafted the canvas bag with adjustable straps from the printed image of a reclining feline. You have to print the kitty on fabric and perform some intermediate level sewing to assemble the purse – if it’s beyond your skills, grab a friend to help because this bag is worth it.

unicorn dinosaur shirt 1

There’s no battle like one between mythical creatures, and this vibrant design from Black Milk Clothing has it all. The front of the polyester tee features a beautiful but fierce unicorn while the back of the tee has a robot dinosaur that shoots lasers from its head. The fight plays out against a background of space and rainbows. Tell me this isn’t the greatest shirt in the history of ever.

See the back of the shirt with the robot dinosaur after the break.

Anytime you attend a theme park, do yourself a favor and interact with a costumed villain performer if you can. They’re allowed to be sassy at both Disney parks and Universal, and the results are usually hilarious. We saw a recent example of this with Gaston at Magic Kingdom, but this Megatron is even better. When a woman asks the Transformers villain for a selfie, he speaks some truth about social media (and her hoodie) and I love him for it.

Watch Megatron be awesome in the video after the break.

Hobbit cosplayers

It’s a neat thing when cosplayers get to interact with the people who inspired their outfits and even neater when it’s captured on camera. In their latest video, the folks behind Cosplay Boom speak to fans who made costumes inspired by The Hobbit. They also spoke with WETA artists who worked on the films including Richard Taylor, Lindsey Crummett, and Andrew Baker. They have nothing but praise and appreciation for cosplayers, and it does the heart good to hear.

Watch the video after the break.

Want to pretend you attend Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters instead of your boring Danger Room-less institution? This watch from ThinkGeek might help. The stylish design isn’t exactly subtle, but since it’s black, you can pair it with multiple outfits. It has a stainless steel caseback, a silicone band, and will not give you any sort of mutant powers.
