As if we didn’t already love Marvel enough, all the recent cinematic universe news has Marvel front and center in our fashionably geek brains. We have a feeling many of you might also be looking for ways to display your excitement for Marvel in your style, so we assembled some everyday cosplay outfits that perfect for showing your love of their classic heroes and villains in just about any situation.

For each outfit we found dresses inspired by Marvel characters along with some heroic cosmetics and accessories to continue the theme and really capture the spirit and style of each character.

From Captain Marvel to Iron Man, after the break you can find seven Marvel-inspired everyday cosplay outfits that will make you the stylish hero (or villain) our universe needs!

Heh, did we get you with that one? This puntastic creation is the work of Geek Cameos Etc. and was originally commissioned for Stan himself. It’s available in a variety of colors as a brooch, lapel pin, hair pin, necklace, or all on its own so you can use it as the foundation for your own creation.

We just can’t get enough of the Guardians of The Galaxy, so imagine our excitement when we discovered this new makeup collection inspired by the quirky team of heroes! The line was created by Geek Chic Cosmetics who named it rather appropriately “Awesome Mix.” It features six eyeshadows inspired by the film. The colors include “I Am Groot”, “Deadliest Woman In The Universe”, and “My Prince, My Starlord”. In these colors we can all save the universe and look good doing it too!

You may be proud of your neatly groomed facial hair, but these guys take it to crazy new levels of awesome. They were all competitors in the 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championships (sponsored by Just For Men) which were held last Saturday in Portland, Oregon. Over 300 people competed in 18 different categories that involved more than just having a ton of hair on your face.

OregonLive spoke with event organizer Phil Olsen who said they were looking for facial hair that “best enhances their overall appearance, style and personality.” If these pictures are any indicator, personalities ranged from soldiers to adventurers to Gandalf.

Most of us don’t get as much sleep as we need and there are times when we’d just like to take a nap. You can put your head on your arm, but that’s uncomfortable. Instead, try out the Ostrich Pillow Mini that slips over your arm and turns it into an instant pillow for nap time. It’s currently up for funding on kickstarter and has far exceeded its goal already. A pledge of $25 will have one on your arm this December.
