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.

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.

cosplay couture 1

Courtney Coulson and Luke Milton are taking costume photography to a new level. Their Cosplay Couture project merges cosplay and fashion photography with stunning results. They focus more on the “couture construction technique” rather than one hundred percent accuracy, and the effort means they’ve come up with designs that are both creative and impressive.

They’ve tackled costumes from comic books, shows such as Doctor Who, and movies like The Lone Ranger. They offer insight on the costume and the shoot with each of their posts, and I highly recommend following them on Tumblr.

storm hoodie

Storm is one of the coolest X-Men. She can control the weather, she’s smart and capable, and she’s got a wonderful sense of style. This pullover shirt from Her Universe and ThinkGeek captures all of those aspects because it looks cool and the front and side of the shirt feature glow-in-the-dark lightning. Storm rules.

snow white derby 1

Most Disney princesses may seem timid and meek, but I bet if you gave them skates and put them into a roller derby arena, they’d let all of their aggressions out on the rink. Well, they’d do that after they learned how to skate.

Artist Amanda Robinson imagined several princesses as derby girls, and cosplayer Shreddy Krueger got inspired and became Snow Fight. Snow White looks fierce and badass as a derby princess.

pusheen_cat_halloween_costumes_06

It can be hard to resist the temptation of putting your cat into a costume for Halloween. They just look so cute! If your feline will tolerate being dressed up, Pusheen the Cat has several suggestions for costumes and shared them in gif form. You can go for the obvious Nyan cat or you can just wrap your cat in a blanket and call him or her a burrito. It couldn’t be easier.

hoodie cap 1

You don’t need to be injected with a super soldier serum or kidnapped by Hydra to be brainwashed in order to look like Captain America or the Winter Soldier. Just pull on these new exclusive costume hoodies from ThinkGeek. Purchasing your superpowers is the easiest way to get them.

The zip-up designs are based on the costumes used in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and will be available to order on November 20th.

deathlords 1

GeekGirlCon isn’t the biggest convention, but that doesn’t mean that cosplayers don’t attend. The folks at Punished Props were there in full Draugr Deathlord attire from Skyrim, and they look absolutely amazing. And also intimidating. I would let anyone dressed like these undead characters cut in front of me in lines all day long.

hoodie rocket raccoon 1

Cosplaying characters from Guardians of the Galaxy is fun, but if you’re not committed to painting your body green or finding a fur suit, ThinkGeek has a couple of options for you. They have exclusive Guardians costume hoodies for Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord; the prototype designs look pretty fantastic as is. All you have to add are props! Rocket gets a giant Nerf-style gun, and Star-Lord gets a walkman and a mixtape. Done and done.

The sweatshirts will be available for purchase on November 20th.

Check out theStar-Lord version after the break.
