The second I opened the email for this Mass Effect Commander Shepard cosplay by Freya Willia, I gasped audibly at how good it was.

Willia says this cosplay took two years to build, including the omni blade. In addition, the Carnifex pistol was painted from a kit by Punished Props and the N7 Rifle was built from a kit by Volpin Props. That’s a lot of amazing craftsmanship in one cosplay!

the dress tattoo

First came The Dress, then the memes about The Dress, then t-shirts based on the meme about The Dress and now?

Now 24-year-old Texas piercer Daniel Howland has a tattoo about the meme about the dress because they thought the meme was “stupid”.

What’s next? A series based on The Dress?

Check out his Instagram post after the break.

the dress

It may be hard to believe, but thanks to the Internet, “The Dress” is now a cultural touchstone. Many of us will be able to look back on that day and say we knew where we were when we first saw The Dress. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

What is a good thing is that The Dress has already made it’s way onto a design in our Nerd Approved Shirt Store and it’s on sale for $14 for a limited time.

Peter Griffin in The Dress is something that never would have existed without all of us and our need to understand the important mysteries of life.

All hail the Internet.

firefly bag

How do I describe this Firefly purse and make up bag from Crescent City Couture as anything but adorably kawaii? I mean, come ON. If you’re a Browncoat and you have to admit this is pretty gorram shiny. I love Kaylee’s parasol.

soul caliber

What happens when a hentai artist designs a skin for Soul Calibur? Well, let’s just say that that whole argument about effective female armor just suffered another setback.

Manga artist Yamatogawa made this “Magic Knight” outfit which can be worn by Ivy and Amy in Soul Calibur: Lost Swords.

Only in a fantasy world would this breastplate hold…anything.

This The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Walker Stained Glass Dress is fantastic on so many levels. Little Chibi style Link and Zelda is never a bad thing, and the all over stained glass design is gorgeous

Simple but cute is something I can always appreciate. This Studio Ghibli Kiki’s Delivery Service Jiji Cardigan from Hot Topic is exactly that. The JiJi on the front is probably my favorite feature.

I feel like it would be great to wear on a day when I have a ton of errands to do.

dot cosplay

Cosplayer Amber Harrison combined time, creativity and prosthetics to create a Dot cosplay that has Reddit completely on the fence at to whether it’s cute or creepy. I’m gonna go with cute. After all, Dot is the cute one.

cthulhu ring

This Cthulhu-inspired engagement ring by DTEK Designs was a custom design for a client. We’ve featured Drew’s jewelry before (we’re fans) and, while this beautiful creation is currently not available for sale, it’s a good example of the delightfully insane custom designs that are possible.
