I wasn’t familiar with CutiePieSensei‘s work before she sent us her cosplays of Supergirl and Widowmaker from Overwatch, but you can bet she’s on my radar now.

One of the best parts of my job is discovering new people and having a chance to boost the signal on their work. So, this is me doing just that.

No matter how old some of us get, we’ll never stop dreaming of becoming a Disney princess.

Now, these new tiaras may be listed as “for kids”, but I’m up for the idea of going full evil step sister and doing whatever it takes to make that glass slipper fit.

Living Dead Clothing has revealed their American Horror Story collection based on the series. The collection includes tees, crop tops, leggings, skirts, maxi skirts, bodysuits, and skater dresses featuring well-known lines and images from the show.

Living Dead Clothing’s founder and CEO Wade Lange says it’s one of their most exciting releases yet.

“American Horror Story was such a ground-breaking hit with an international cult following, and so many fans have been vocal in expressing their anticipating for this collection since word of the partnership first got out,” he said.

“With the show’s much-loved characters (as well as the ones we all loved to hate) and unforgettably eerie settings brought to life across each of the pieces in this collection, fans are in for a real treat.”

There are so many things here I need. Check out more pieces from the collection below. [click to continue…]

We’ve seen backpack costumes before, but this Steven Universe Steven cosplay backpack is still pretty clever.

Consider wearing this in front and the Steven Universe cheeseburger backpack on your back. Or maybe put them back to back and put a wig on top?

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES. [click to continue…]

What happens when you’re on your morning commute and you walk directly into a Sanrio Character photoshoot? You stop and take a picture. Duh! That’s what Japanese Twitter user @sutepotechin did when a whole line of Sanrio characters made their way through Tama-Center Station in Tokyo.

The best part of this whole thing was Sanrio’s newest character lazy egg Gudetama living up to his reputation by getting hauled around on a cart.

parasols

Summer is officially here and, if you’re like me, you need to hide from the sun. I think these new parasols by Sourpuss Clothing will do the trick nicely.

I may need to get the Kraken one just so I can say “Release The Kraken!” whenever I open it.

Yeah, I’d do that.

Her Universe is adding more fun fashion to their Marvel line in honor of Captain America’s 75th anniversary. The retro collection puts a modern twist on Cap’s 1940s era style with new dresses, blouses, shorts, rompers, tees and more. Cap’s shield design has been subtly incorporated into floral prints, bandana prints and patriotic patterns.

“With the 75th anniversary we were really inspired by the 40’s era and the year that Captain America was created,” said Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein. “We collaborated closely with the Kohl’s and Marvel teams to create the perfect summer collection that evokes the spirit of a girl from the 40’s with a mix of modern day trends.”

Cosplayer Casey Renee loves both Disney and the study of history, which is why she describes her Rococo Belle cosplay as “a dream project”. She writes:

Back in February I finished a dream project of mine. Rococo Belle is a historically accurate version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I narrowed the time period down to the 1750s in France and used popular silhouettes such as the boufant wig and the watteau train to construct this beast of a project. It took over 300 hours to make the 9 garments (including socks and shoes) complete with over 2000 beads and pearls. The entire garment weighs 22 pounds with 30 yards of fabric and a wig that Cogsworth (which I also constructed) sits upon.

She says the costume allows her to share her love for Disney and history with children who tend to follow her around.

I can see why! Check out more pics of the costume below. [click to continue…]
