groot mickey ears 2

Jenny Rae is one of the most creative people I follow on the interwebs. It doesn’t matter if she’s DisneyBounding, crafting, or making videos – everything she does is awesome. She recently put together a DisneyBound take on Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy and made a pair of matching tree-like mouse ears for the occasion. The internet squealed in adoration so she decided to put some of the spectacular Groot mouse ears in her Etsy store.

The bad news? The six pairs she made have already been sold. The good news? She might make more. Keep your eye on Lil Rae Cakes.

Spunky Spider-Girl Cosplay

spider-girl costume

Spider-Man and Spider-Woman cosplay is pretty common, but I don’t often come across Spider-Girl. This unknown cosplayer is dressed as Araña, a.k.a. Spider-Girl, a.k.a. Anya, and she’s made a wonderful replica of the costume from the comics. Bonus: it looks way more comfortable than wearing a full spandex suit.

r2-d2 purse 1

You never have to lose the droid you’re looking for again if you carry this R2-D2 handbag. The dome shaped patent purse appears to be made from vinyl, and I love the glossy finish. It looks like a freshly scrubbed and shined Artoo. Besides resembling the beloved astromech, the purse handles have snazzy Rebel Alliance accents and the interior is lined with Star Wars logo fabric. Beep, boop. I’m putting it on my shopping list.

alextrasza cosplay 3

Cosplayer Tine Marie Riis has a large number of great costumes in her portfolio, but her Alexstrasza cosplay is my favorite. The character from World of Warcraft has a memorable costume and not just because it’s skimpy. The dark red, the cape, and the horns make an impression. Tine Marie Riis made the costume using Worbla, resin, and expanding foam among other materials – it looks like it took a long time to build!

assassins creed puppeteer costume 1

With lines like “Eat your heart out… or I will,” The Puppeteer sounds like one of the sassier characters in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Her appearance contributes to that vibe, and Yelaina May Cosplay has captured it with her costume. She made the ensemble for a customer and did so in just over a month. She crafted everything from scratch and says it’s even comfortable to wear. That doesn’t happen often enough with cosplay.

lola bunny costume

Come on and slam, and welcome to the jam because we have a Lola Bunny cosplay in the house. I didn’t know I’d ever see a costume from the 1996 movie Space Jam, and I didn’t know a person could look so much like an animated rabbit without putting on a furry costume. Variable Cosplay, you win.

david bowie's hairstyles

David Bowie makes me feel like a slacker. He’s successful and has accomplished much over his long career, and also, he’s changed his look repeatedly. I’ve left my hair in the same basic cut and style for years.

In fact, Bowie has sported many fantastic hairstyles. Artist Helen Green illustrated them and created a gif I can’t stop looking at.

geekweave leggings 1

The variety of leggings available on the market continues to dazzle me. It’s darn near impossible to choose a pair, and Geekweave Clothing is making the decision more difficult. The company launched in December and offers video game inspired leggings. The first release is all about the armor.

The designs feature original artwork in three looks: Satina Paladin (a very World of Warcraft-esque style), Skull Reaver, and Mecha. I want them all.

jareth cosplay pic by WeNeals Photography and Retouching 1

Last month we posted a preview of an eye-catching gender swapped Jareth costume, and the cosplayer just let us know more photos are available. David Bowie looks rather fabulous as the Goblin King in Labyrinth, but Ginny Diguiseppi looks outstanding in the outfit. She rocks the fluffy shirt, the pants, and the makeup. Best of all? Her expressions in pictures are spot on.

batgirl cosplay 1

When I think back through all the various costumes we’ve seen Batgirl wear, the one from the classic Batman series is my favorite. Yvonne Craig rocked the purple suit and so does cosplayer MaDeath. She fell in love with Batgirl when she saw her in the Adam West show and since MaDeath had the necessary skills to sew full superhero suits, she couldn’t resist making this one. She did a fantastic job.
