leggings - rebel alliance

I’ve seen a lot of leggings over the past few years, but these designs from Etsy seller Deela Designs stand out. The leggings are made from black matte spandex and feature shiny lamé looking spandex appliques for the symbols. She has Star Wars leggings available with the Rebel Alliance symbol in red and the Empire symbol in gold, and I want both of them.

The leggings are made to order and turnaround time is two to three weeks.

See the Empire design and leggings from Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Trek after the break.

she-ra costume 1

She-Ra Princess of Power is one of the most awesome characters to come from the 1980s. She’s fierce, powerful, and has an awesome costume. Désirée Cosplay loved the character when she was growing up and came up with an original design inspired by She-Ra’s outfit. She looks awesome.

hogwarts purse 1

Harry Potter had a difficult time receiving his invitation to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry thanks to the Dursleys, but you can just buy a version of it and carry it at all times. Etsy seller Tobacco Pouch has re-created the letter from leather and turned it into a small purse.

The front of the purse features Harry’s address, and the purse closes magnetically with a faux wax seal made from polymer clay. The interior features the text of the entire letter. You can’t fit a ton of stuff into the purse, but it works well as a clutch or wallet.

teefury shoes 1

TeeFury has expanded their offerings beyond t-shirts and prints and has launched a footwear line. ShoeFury will eventually include several designs but has kicked with a single print featuring characters from Studio Ghibli by Enfu. They have both slip-ons and high-tops available, and the base of the shoe is Zipz. That brings me to the coolest part about these shoes: the tops zip on and off.

That means once you buy a whole pair shoes, you can skip buying the soles in the future and only purchase new tops. It makes it easy and more affordable to change up your footwear.

See the high-top version and an introduction video after the break.

Is there such a thing as owning too many pajamas? It seems like a wise idea to always have comfortable pants and full pajama suits on hand, and these Christmasy loungers are perfect for any Doctor Who fan. The print features TARDISes, Daleks, snowflakes, and sonic screwdrivers. It has a hood and looks ideal for wearing during all day Who marathons when it’s really cold outside.

See a close-up of the TARDIS design after the break.

Star Trek’s Christopher Pike didn’t have an easy time. He was severely injured by radiation and left paralyzed. He was confined to a wheelchair and could only communicate through a light built into the device. This sublimated t-shirt from ThinkGeek captures the front of Pike’s black wheelchair. It’s an obscure reference and a little sad.

code_geass__kallen_kozuki__waiting_the_fight_by_sarinaamazon-d83yo6f

Kallen Kozuki of the anime Code Geass is also known as Kozuki Karen and Kallen Stadtfeld. She leads a double life in the series; she’s both a student and a member of guerrilla resistence group that participates in terrorist activities. Cosplayer SarinaAmazon wore the character’s R2 flight suit in a recent photo shoot, and she nails it – especially the spiky hair.

nes my life 1

What if the items on our to-do list were classic Nintendo games? NES My Life imagines our everyday boring activities as retro games, and the designs are pretty funny. Imagine riveting titles like Commute (hours of gameplay!), Job Hunt, and Student Loan Scramble? Hey, if you have to live through such activities, you may as well have fun and poke a little fun at them.

Clobberella futurama costume

Clobberella is The New Justice Team superhero identity of Leela in Futurama. She has super strength, super speed and invulnerability and all she had to do to get her powers was apply a miracle cream. Cosplayer Markie Gaddis definitely had to put more effort than that into making her take on the Clobberella costume. It’s colorful and is a close match to the one from Futurama.

Death Note’s Ryuk is a Shinigami. He has blue tinted skin, retractable wings, crazy hair, and an appreciation of apples. Actually, it’s more like an addiction. Foxxi Loxxi Cosplay came up with a femme take on the character that manages to be creepy while being a little cute. She did an especially great job with the makeup and hair.
