These Star Trek slippers will keep your toes warm as the temperature falls. They come in both men’s and women’s sizes and are available in either Gold (Command), Blue (Science), or Red (Engineering/Security) with matching insignias. These are officially licensed products and have no-slip bottoms to keep you from falling, but if you opt for the red ones even that safety feature might not save you.

A live-action version of Attack on Titan has been filming in Japan and they’ve released an incredible series of cast posters with everyone in full costume. It reveals a lot about the setting of the film which looks to be more post-apocalyptic than the medieval-esque world the manga/anime depicts. The cast includes Miura Haruma as Eren, Mizuhara Kiko as Mikasa, Shu Watanabe as Fukushi, Ayame Misaki as Hiana, and Rina Takeda as Lil.

There is plenty of Star Trek cosplay at your average convention, but this is cleverer than most. CaptCash chose to dress as a redshirt who is on an away mission at Comic-Con. He staged every single one as though he was in dire straits from being eaten by a dragon to being run over by a truck. As much as the convention wanted to kill him, he managed to survive every ordeal. Next year he might not be so lucky.

Cosplaying kids are always adorable, but this little girl is just stunning. She’s La Muerte from The Book of Life and her Mom didn’t miss a detail while making her costume. It’s covered with candles, skulls, and loads of flowers. Plus, the awesomeness of her makeup is off the charts.

She’s currently in a costume contest at OurKids Magazine so if you’re as impressed as we are, head on over and give her your vote.

This badass corset is the work of fashion designer Rei Narumiya who is also a photographer. She’s designed incredible military-inspired pieces that could be the foundation to your next cosplay. There’s a corset, skirt, and pouch which are each sold separately and look fantastic when worn together. She initially just made these as prototypes, but they were so well-received that they are now being made-to-order for each customer. The weapons are just props, but they give you an idea of the possibilities.

Redditor wlp0604’s two little girls wanted to be Cardcaptor Sakura and Kiro for Halloween (from the Cardcaptor Sakura manga), and since those aren’t costumes you’ll find at the store, their Mom sewed them these beauties. She made every part of their costumes herself, except for the little one’s shoes and her leggings which were a last minute addition because it was chilly outside.

This Rocket Raccoon cosplay is so impressive, you’d swear you’re looking at a stuffed figure. It’s the work of Shoko and Jérôme Cosplay and took about a month to create. That sounds like a long time, but considering how good this looks, it’s hard to believe this didn’t take even longer. On that note, Rocket really needs to hang out with this guy.

Kids often wear costumes to meet the characters at Disney World, but the costumes Jennifer Rouch makes for her 3-year-old daughter Lane are really something special. Mom makes all the costumes from scratch including accessories that go right down to the little birds that perch on Snow White as she sings in rags by the wishing well.

The idea came to Jennifer when she noticed that her daughter was becoming very shy. Since they go to Disney World often, she decided to try to conquer Lane’s shyness by letting her dress like the characters in hopes that it would help her feel more comfortable around new people. Interact she did and it looks like Lane and the cast members at the parks are having a lot of fun.

You should be warned, particularly if you have kids, that the feels in this video are off the charts.

Mike Wilson’s 5-year-old son, Jayden, has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. The little guy is only expected to live a year, so Dad gave him the surprise of his life with a visit from Spider-Man for his birthday. It’s short and sweet, and simply beautiful.

The family has also set up GoFundMe and Facebook pages for those wishing to lend their support.
