frozen world of warcraft

The cold doesn’t bother this Elsa Lich Queen from World of Warcraft. Cosplayer Chubear came up with a beautiful way to mash together WoW’s Arthas and Frozen’s Elsa into a stunning ensemble for BlizzCon. She did a positively amazing job with this unique design.

unicorn hood 2

Once upon a time there was a magical hood that turned people into unicorns and kept them warm. It was made from cotton and polyester and featured a rainbow mane and a golden horn and looks a lot like the Magicorn Hood pictured above. Besides featuring a hood to keep your head warm, the unicorn accessory also has pockets to put your hands/hooves in.

See a couple more pictures of the furry hood after the break.

Ceremony_0140_zps995046c1

Karen and Charles Kent (yes Kent!) have a thing for Superman—Smallville in particular. The couple’s wedding was inspired by the long running series about Clark Kent, with the event actually taking place at Hatley Castle in British Columbia. You may recognize it as the Lex Luthor mansion from the series. It’s also been featured in the X-Men films and on Arrow. It’s the superhero/villain estate of choice.

Their wedding featured red, blue, and yellow colors in the classiest way possible, and the groom donned a Superman cape for parts of the event. They even explored Smallville filming locations during their honeymoon.

As you’ll see in the pictures and video after the break, it’s a nerdy dream wedding done right.

robe harley quinn 1

The options for nightwear just keep getting geekier. There are enough costume robes these days that you could curl up in a different one every day for a month. Kinda cool, no? ThinkGeek has three new options for your closet: Batman, Harley Quinn, and a Walking Dead sheriff robe. Each design features appropriate touches: Batman ears, Harley Quinn’s jester hat, and fake gashes. Plus, they’re all made from polyester.

See the Batman and Walking Dead robes after the break.

1e2e_back_to_the_future_flux_capacitor_watch

Time traveling isn’t a reality just yet, but I feel like we’re getting closer because a Flux Capacitor watch exists. ThinkGeek is offering a digital watch modeled on Doc Brown’s gadget from Back to the Future and it tells the time and date using Flux Capacitor lights and time circuit LED. Here’s how it breaks down:

Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats)

When you’re tired of being in the moment, switch to the “Time Travel” mode and the time circuit will display a random date. The only problem is that you’ll have to run 88mph to make it work.

See what it looks like on the wrist after the break.

last unicorn costume 1

For my money, The Last Unicorn is one of the best fantasy novels and fairy tales out there. I enjoy the book and the animated movie very much and am always glad to see costumes inspired by the story. Cosplayer Evie E made a gorgeous version of the unicorn in her human form as Lady Amalthea. She based the design on the one in the movie but added her own touches to make it more fitting for a unicorn. She did a fantastic job.

pokemon dress 1

If you’re tired of not being able to snag all the pocket monsters in Pokémon, try wearing them! This dress from Koala Art & Design is made from polyester/spandex with a pattern that features pixelated Pikachus and Poké Balls – what more do you need?

bmc chainmail 1

As much as I wish it wasn’t the case, wearing chainmail every day isn’t practical. It’s heavy, loud, and metal isn’t pleasant against the skin when it’s cold outside. Black Milk Clothing has another option though: fabric printed to look like chainmail. They have a new collection of apparel that includes skater dresses, a swimsuit, leggings, a body con dress, and more with the chainmail print.

agents of shield scarf

Director Phil Coulson has been feeling compelled to scrawl an alien script on any and every surface since the end of season one on Agents of SHIELD. Tumblr user concertigrossi was inspired by the glyphs and created a double-knit scarf covered in the creepy writing. It’s subtle and fashionable and incredibly creative.

Even cooler? She details the pattern on Tumblr so you can make your very own SHIELD scarf.

stay puft dog

Luke Skywalker (yes!) the Great Dane just saw his first ghost, and he is not a fan. Luke’s owner dressed as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (well, woman) from Ghostbusters for Halloween, and when Luke sees her in costume, he heads the opposite direction. He does everything he can to be as far away from the puffy costume as possible, and I can’t say I blame him for being afraid of ghosts.

Watch the pup react to Stay Puft in the video after the break.
