Simpsons tattoo

Lee Weir has a thing for The Simpsons. He likes the cartoon so much that he recently was awarded a Guinness World Record for the most tattoos of the same cartoon character tattooed on the body. Weir has 41 tattoos of Homer Simpson covering his left arm. The ink features Homer in different poses and costumes – there’s even a Hulk Homer. I’m floored.

See more pics of the tattoo and watch an interview with Weir after the break.

majora's mask tattoo

Majora’s Mask is featured in the title of the sixth game in The Legend of Zelda series, and the evil in the mask plays a big part in the game. This shading on this intricate tattoo manages to catch some of the ominous vibes.

Majora was inked by Will Ralston at Oddity Tattoo in Sarasota, Florida.

zelda 1

It seems as though Princess Zelda has stepped out of all her games and embarked on her own adventure in Finland. Eisy Cosplay spent about 30 hours planning the Zelda ensemble and 92 hours making it. The finished costume is absolutely striking and worth every second, and the setting in the above photo (the Nuuksio National Reserve in Espoo, Finland) adds to the wow factor.

batgirl and supergirl new costume

DC Comics is taking Batgirl in a new direction this October, and as a result, the character’s getting a makeover. Artist Mike Maihack has done a few adorable comics featuring Batgirl and Supergirl, and Kara’s been known to give Babs a hard time about her lack of costume changes. So, it’s only fitting that Supergirl is incredibly excited about her friend’s new look.

See a previous installment of the comic after the break.

Kim Possible 1

What’s the sitch, Kim Possible fans? Whatever you’re up to, we think you’ll appreciate this costume of the teenage crime fighter from the Disney series. AmberSkies Cosplay looks adorable as Kim Possible, and it looks like she’s got all the character’s signature moves down. Amber is planning to wear the costume at Comic-Con.

Check out more of the series after the break.

kill la kill 3

Satsuki Kiryuin is one of the main characters of the anime series Kill la Kill. She begins as an antagonist, and cosplayer Jovi Heartilly definitely communicates a villainous vibe with her fierce expressions. She seems to have the character’s angry scowl down perfectly.

captain spider-man 2

If you took Captain America and Spider-Man and squished them into one character, they’d combine to make an epic costume. Redditor Darayz worked Cap’s red, white, and blue into a Spidey suit, and it looks striking and weirdly natural. I’m a fan of Captain Spider-Man. He’s still working on the shield, and I hope it has webbed lines in addition to or instead of the usual circles.

calne miku 1

There’s a character in Vocaloid who’s derivative of Hatsune Miku; Calne Ca is a Deino’s original character and has some creepy cyborg traits – like metallic appendages extending from her mouth. Cosplayer Yuri Ros brought the ensemble to life in a recent cosplay, and she did an tremendous job capturing Calne Ca’s look. I’m scared.

Check out a couple more pics of this frightening but impressive costume and see it in action after the break.

sdcc bag header

One of the most popular collectibles at San Diego Comic-Con is yours as soon as you pick up your badge. You’ll receive a giant bag emblazoned with a Warner Bros. television series or franchise upon arrival. The trickiest part is trading with other con attendees to get the bag you want. The line-up this year features lots of tempting franchises: Arrow, Supernatural, Batman, Gotham, Teen Titans Go!, and many more.

How fast do you think one of these bags will be turned into a dress? I’m pretty sure that some attendees spend Wednesday night in their hotel room turning the bags into wearables.

See the rest of the Warner Bros. line-up after the break.
