Creating fantastic cosplay takes a lot of work and it’s made much easier by having the right tools, but not everyone has a fully stocked sewing room. If you’re in Tokyo, then you’re in luck because CosBox is a room you can rent and it’s full of everything a cosplay maker needs. Four people (of the same sex) can rent the room at a time and they’ll have access to two sewing machines, a serger, mannequins, a supply of threads and a huge table to lay it all out.

Room rental rates start at $102.42 and go up to $187.18 and are divided into day or night time blocks. You can rent it overnight or even for a full 24 hours. There’s a full bathroom as well, so you never have to leave once you get on a roll. Through December 28th they’re running a special where your entire rental is free, so now’s the time to start working on that cosplay. I only wish we had something like this here in the States.

Les Baugh lost both of his arms 40 years ago in an electrical accident, but now he’s on his way to becoming a badass cyborg. Thanks to the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory he got two robotic arms that are attached directly to his nerves, so he can move them naturally with his mind.

The system requires periodic breaks between moves, but it’s an incredible start for this type of technology and holds such promise for those who are currently using less responsive prosthetics.

This beautiful Sailor Moon-themed wedding will likely give you plenty of inspiration for your coming nuptials, or even just a Sailor Moon party. Michelle and Will had everything themed from the bride’s gorgeous dress and incredible shoes to the attire of every bridesmaid. The cake, placecards, and napkins also got a dose of Sailor Moon, and there were even props for her guests to pose with to create some very memorable shots of the event.

It looks like Arya Stark is getting a makeover for the next season of Game of Thrones. Actress Maisie Williams is happy with the change telling EW:

“I love Arya’s new look. It’s very neutral, very plain, but clean! I have clean hair that actually moves.”

The change in costume is one that’s designed to help her character remain anonymous on the streets of Braavos. It’s the brainchild of costume designer Michele Clapton. She said her goal was to reflect both the change in location as well as the fact that Arya is not a boy and can dress like a young woman.

For comparison, see the costume she’s been wearing after the break.

This t-shirt features a beautiful Lux from League of Legends on a t-shirt. From the product page:

Designed by Summoner Cubehero. In between battles, Lux quickly dons an apron to preserve her pristine armor and starts painting! Known by her fans as the Painter of Light, Lux’s crowning achievement is an old painting called Finales Funkeln.

The shirt is available in both men’s and women’s sizes.

This absolutely gorgeous cosplay features Canadian cosplayer Captain Izzy as a Dark Elf Sorceress from Warhammer. She’s got the costuming and makeup down wonderfully, and believe it or not, this is her first attempt at cosplay.

The latest wondrous thing to come out of 3D printing is a pair of prosthetic legs for this adorable pup. Derby was born with deformed front legs that made it impossible for him to walk properly let alone run.

3D Systems designed Derby a custom pair of prosthetic front legs and they have completely changed his life—now he runs just like any other dog. It’s incredible to watch!

See the video after the break (go get tissues first).

Cersei Lannister is the woman you love to hate on Game of Thrones, and here she’s wonderfully cosplayed by Arcana Imperia Cosplay. She’s got Cersei’s look of disdain down perfectly. These photos were all taken at Montreal Comiccon by Lexa One Photography.

The three-bladed lightsaber is likely to be what all the fashionable Jedi are wearing at the cons this year, and this version is the best so far. The maker of this prop has done a fantastic job of recreating what we saw in that brief glimpse in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. Its definitely a step up from this 3D printed version.

You might not ever get to go into space, but this jacket will make you look like you’re well on your way. The SpaceLife Jacket is designed to look like an astronaut’s spacesuit complete with patches and even a non-functional aluminum port.

It’s made of trilobal fiber and is waterproof and reflective so you’ll be warm and safe in your astronaut jacket (on Earth anyway). There are also Bluetooth speakers in the hood and playback buttons built into the cuff.

You can order it now, but you’ll be waiting awhile for your first flight as it doesn’t start shipping until September 2015. It’s also really, really expensive.
