Keep the sun at bay with these Doctor Who-themed floppy hats by Geeky U. You can choose from the TARDIS with a lovely bow tie accent at the back or an uncharacteristically cheerful Dalek version. Both are handmade and one size fits most.

Jurassic World features lots of dinosaurs and some stupid humans fleeing from them, like Claire Dearing who wears high heels the whole time. This insane parody gives everyone in the Jurassic Park series high heels, making it way more stylish in the process. Even the dinosaurs get a little something special to wear as they hunt the hapless humans.

Kaylee never had much opportunity to dress up, but this adorable dress from Darling Army would have been a perfect choice on her days off. Her mechanic’s jumpsuit has been reimagined into a vibrant green dress with the teddy bear, flower, and heart. It’s not as fancy as her shindig dress, but it is cuter.

These images look, at first glance, like paintings of 12 astrological symbols done on canvas. Take a closer look and you’ll see they are actually the painted bodies of 60 different strategically posed models. Astrological Symbols took a year for artist Trina Merry and her team to complete with work happening in New York City and San Francisco.

A certain Doctor has already established that bow ties are cool. These aluminum variants have to be up there as the coolest. Damico has created a range of 11 aluminum bow ties that are currently fully funded on Kickstarter. Still, there is a little time left to get one for shipment in September.

This fantastic Miranda Lawson from Mass Effect features cosplayer Dahlia Thomas. As you can see, she looks amazing and the effects added to the photos are a nice touch. Credit for that goes to David Love Photography.

This impossibly awesome Howl’s Moving Castle cosplay was made by Sonja Cool from Hopkins, Minnesota over the course of a year and a half. She took breaks during the build, but that’s still a huge amount of time to commit to one costume. According to BuzzFeed:

“It’s a base of chicken wire, 12-gauge wire, with a little bit of mattress pad foam, and then a TON of EVA craft foam,” says Sonja. “The houses are made with foam poster board […] I also used a bit of Apoxie sculpt on the church, and a lot of wood glue to fill in cracks. I bought a largest glue gun I could from the hardware store when I first started, and I’m proud to say I have worn it out.”

The whole thing cost between $200 and $300 and weighed roughly 30 pounds when it was complete. It features LED lighting in each house and it even blows smoke!

Sonja wore it at CONvergence in Bloomington, Minnesota where she won Best Master and People’s Choice in the Masquerade Costume Contest. Naturally.

The live-action Attack on Titan movie opens in Japan next month, but it just premiered at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles. Interestingly, the premiere included official cosplayers in costumes that might be scarier than actual titans.

One titan is oddly squished and out of proportion while the rest are on stilts with pantsuits that give them ridiculously long legs. Weird.
