A little cosplay and cuteness in backpacks today.

First up is a Kingdom Hearts Sora Cosplay backpack which is a black canvas bag with faux leather details. I love the pockets. Then there’s the Adventure Time BMO backpack. BMO has a lenticular face design so he’ll have some major mood swings as you bop along.

BMO happy! BMO angry! BMO happy! BMO angry!

Batman and Killer Croc battle it out on this awesome pair of hand painted hi-tops by Geektrooper. This particular pair is a custom job for a very special Batman fan, but he’s also made custom painted shoes for Star Wars Rebels, Vanessa Marshall and others.

dress of the phoenix

This Phoenix dress by costume designer Jolien Rosanne of Fairytas looks like the sort of thing that would be worn in an epic fantasy game.

Just stunning.

Another day, another bag I covet. I swear, I have a problem when it comes to my love for all things purse and bag like. This time around, it’s this Disney The Little Mermaid Tattoo Print slouch backpack which combines Disney and tattoos. Pretty much an instant win as far as I’m concerned.

Get a better look after the break.

Just take a few minutes to appreciate this League of Legends Draven cosplay by Leon Chiro. He’s joined by Mis Hatred as Jinx who also did a fantastic job.

Paul Feig continues his (awesome) habit of breaking news on Twitter by tweeting out pictures of new props and costumes from his upcoming Ghostbusters movie.

This morning, we got the picture up top with the hashtag #whatyougonnashoot. Last night, there were four costumes with the hashtag #whatyougonnawear.

I feel like, at this point, he can just start ending his tweets with #youknowyouregonnaseeit.

I’m warning you ahead of time that this is going to get you in the feels, so have tissues handy.

13 year-old Matthew Tillyer attended Celebration in cosplay like a lot of young Star Wars fans. However, instead of cosplaying a character from the movies, he went as a vehicle. Yep, Matthew designed a TIE cosplay for his wheelchair and his dad built it.

Matthew was paralyzed from the neck down after a bout with pneumonia in 2013. When members of The 501st saw Matthew at the show (winning first place in the costume contest no less), they were so moved by his love for Star Wars, his story, and his positive attitude that they decided to make his dream of becoming a TIE pilot come true.

501st members from garrisons all over the world contributed everything from a helmet to the boots to outfit him as a TIE pilot, and even raised $1,500 for medical expenses! Members of the Imperial Sands Garrison and the Golden Gate Garrison surprised Matthew with both the outfit and an honorary membership into the 501st.

Matthew still has challenges to face and is dealing with ongoing medical problems, however his smile, which was already pretty bright, is mega-watt after his experience with the 501st.

main warhammer

Wanna see something pretty? Check out this amazing Warhammer armor by Drack Props. The armor is made with foam covered in Worbla, plus a lot of patience, talent, and skill.

It’s a work in progress, but considering how great it already looks, I can’t wait to see it painted and finished.

While QMx makes all sorts of collectibles, their heart belongs to Firefly and they’ve got some shiny new debuts for SDCC. The first is a 14k gold and sterling silver version of their Leaf On The Wind pendant which also comes with a sterling silver plated 24″ chain and a velvet-lined wooden box that looks straight out of The ‘Verse.

The other item is an official replica of Jayne’s cunning hat. Both Firefly costume designer Shawna Trpcic and actor Adam Baldwin have said that the pattern and colors are very true to the original.

Both the pendant and the hat will be available at SDCC and online.
