Pokémon Go has swept the planet and we’ve seen ripple effects through everything from cosplay to fashion. Which is why it doesn’t surprise me to see that Pokémon Go nail designs are on the rise.

Just hit up #pokemongonails or #pokemonnails on Instagram and you’ll see a sudden burst of designs since the game’s release.

I’m still waiting for the first Pokémon Go-themed hair art. Got Poké Ball hair or something? Send us a tip! Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

comic leggings

While the clothing options for comic book loving women have gotten better over the years, I figure you can never have too many choices or too many pairs of leggings.

In that spirit, I present Etsy seller Exotica Leggings.

Exotica Leggings has lots of different styles. Just be aware that they’re one size, so they may not be for everyone. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

There were quite a few Harley Quinn cosplays at SDCC this year (naturally), but one of those Harleys was the voice of Harley herself, Tara Strong.

Her cosplay game was, ahem…strong. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Personally, I’ve never been a fan of dress codes but I understand why companies have them. That said, dress codes can be arbitrary and confusing in what they will and will not allow.

In the case of cosplayer June J Rivas, her boss took issue with the way she chose to wear her hair. Ponytail? Unprofessional. Pigtails? Unprofessional. Scarf? You got it. Unprofessional.

The issue, however, was that the company had no dress code beyond “Just be clean and pressed.”, which Rivas pointed out when she filed a complaint. Her boss’ reaction was to, you guessed it, issue a memo with a new dress code that included, “no straps, hats, sandals, cleavage, back out, lace, and even (and I quote) cultural head wraps”.

Rivas has filed a complaint with the EEOC and she’s found a way to cleverly adhere to the dress code while her case is pending: cosplay.

Each day, she wears a new cosplay that likely drives her boss nuts but isn’t technically actionable. I think I’m in love with this woman. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

It’s always fun when a famous person walks the floor incognito at a convention. This is especially true when you discover that you took a picture with them.

So if you took a picture with a dude in a Suicide Squad t-shirt and a Guy Fawkes mask, that may have been Henry Cavill. Will Smith knows what I’m talking about. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]

I personally demand you sing the Firefly theme song as you walk around in these Firefly Serenity Ship oversized plush slippers.

Or just quote dialogue from the show…or movie. They’re the smoothest ride to Boros for anyone can pay.

These are so weirdly awesome—not to mention a better option than cutting footholes in the Firefly Serenity Plush.

Pokemania has gone from a simple plague to full on armageddon levels. So now is the perfect time to unload related products—like, for example, this adorable female Pikachu on a new line of cosmetics and accessories coming out of Japan.

Stationary, totes, eyeshadow, nail polish and more have super cute female Pikachu art and colors. Prices range from 150¥ ($1.50 USD) to 3000¥ ($28 USD).

All of this is more cute than I can handle. Check out more products in the lineup below. [click to continue…]

Why wear diamonds when you can wear celestial fireworks?

This Celestial Fireworks bracelet features an image of Westerlund 2, a cluster in the constellation Carina, captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

ThinkGeek then took that already beautiful image and added 15 teeny white LED lights that sparkle. The bracelet’s lights are powered by a rechargeable battery and USB cable that are both included.

pg vests

We recently spotted our first Pokemon Go cosplay and now we’ve discovered our first Pokemon Go-themed Trainer vests by Volante Design. These vests are handmade in the US and have a zipper pocket on each side to keep basic items secure—like two portable battery chargers. They also have webbing on each side of the hip for other stuff you may want to clip on—like extra battery chargers.

Volante also says the first 40 orders will be numbered special editions, so if you want one, you may want to hurry. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
