Titan Homer

The titans in Attack on Titan gross me right out. Their muscles show, their eyes are creepy – I’m not a fan. The titans get even weirder when they’re mashed up with other characters, and I don’t even know what to do with this Homer Simpson titan. Kudos to this cosplayer for combining the two franchises and owning it – I do like that he’s carrying a donut.

the summer soldier

Being associated with winter can’t be fun. Most people I know don’t like the chilly season, and The Winter Soldier probably hears all of their complaints. This cosplayer decided to mix it up and become The Summer Soldier. Who’s ready to party by the pool? This guy.

sweater - gremlins

This is the perfect time of the year to stock up on “ugly” sweaters, and Mondo has a couple of new offerings to help you get ready for the holidays. They teamed up with Middle of Beyond (the makers of this striking Cthulhu sweater) to release designs based on Fargo and Gremlins. The sweaters are colorful, and since they’re made from 100% heavy knit acrylic, they’re sure to be warm – even if you’re in Minnesota and even if someone trys to get water on the Mogwai.

The sweaters are available for pre-order and will ship in December.

See the Fargo design after the break.

GGI t-shirt

Sometimes when you’re wandering around a convention, you just need to see a friendly face. One way to attract other awesome geek girls is by wearing this Geek Girl Illuminati t-shirt designed by Kate Leth. It’s a way to show your geek girl pride, and you know the person wearing it will have your back.

Skirt - wonder woman

Etsy is a delightful place because you never know what sort of gems you’ll find there. One place to look for treasure is Seams Nostalgic. The shop specializes in vintage glamour, and they’ve managed to blend that with superheros and sci-fi.

Owned by Abi Casey, the shop has a whole line of classy circle skirts featuring heroes like Wonder Woman, Black Widow, Captain America, and more. Some of the designs are obvious, but others are subtle and can be worn to the office. These would be ideal for a ’50s superhero cosplay group. Just saying. Keep in mind the skirts are made to order and are ready to ship in 4-6 weeks.

More fabulous skirts after the break.

dark link shoes

There’s Link and then there’s Dark Link. Retailer Bobsmade (we’ve featured his amazing work we’ve featured several times in the past) has captured both sides of the Legend of Zelda hero’s personality on these hand painted Chucks. They’re so detailed and pretty that I’d be afraid to wear them and get them dirty!

If you need a pair of your own, you can place a custom order. The studio’s artists paint on a white canvas shoe and will add any design and colors you like.

cat clutch 1

Cat owners always accessorize with cat fur, but it’s usually unintentional. This cat clutch bag from ASOS is anything but an accident though. It’s pink and furry and it has a tail. Beyond looking amazing, it’s functional. The top zips, and there’s at least one inner pocket. If the clutch came in black, I’d have one in my shopping cart already.

Check out more photos of the feline accessory after the break.

attack on titan 1

Ready to gear up and face monsters like the humans in Attack on Titan? Then you’ll need your own set of Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear. It comes with all sorts of handy tools like grapple-hooks and a propeller, and the gear has the added bonus of looking cool. Movic has a life-size replica available for pre-order, and the prop looks pretty spot-on.

It’s made from aluminum, resin, and silicone. It’s not for the weak since it weighs 22 pounds, but you could probably wear it with your Titans cosplay for a little while – at least long enough for photos. The gear will be ready to ship in Japan in January.

spidey tank 1

Put on Spider-Man’s iconic red and blue suit without slipping into spandex thanks to this new design from Her Universe. This is the latest look in the company’s Marvel line, and I have to say that I’m a fan of the hooded tank. The hood even looks like Spidey’s mask! This is a much better option than getting bitten by a radioactive spider.

See more pics of the web-slinging hooded tank* after the break.

valar morghulis

One of the many memorable phrases we’ve learned from Game of Thrones is “Valar morghulis.” The High Valyrian words translate to “All men must die.” This shirt takes the quote and mashes it with a healthy dose of feminism by adding, “Yes, all men.” I think both Daenerys Targaryen and Arya Stark would wear this sweatshirt with pride.
