Our love for Espionage Cosmetics is well documented and they’ve just NAILED IT! (pun intended) again with this these new nail-art designs for Bitch Planet and Sex Criminals. The collaboration with Kelly Sue DeConnick & Valentine De Landro (Bitch Planet) and Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals) has resulted in three new designs that are available for preorder now on the Espionage Cosmetics site. The nail art will also be available at comic books stores, so check out the site for details on that.

All three of the designs are also glow in the dark, so you can be non-compliant day or night. As the tagline says, “This isn’t about beauty. It’s about self-expression.”

More details are available after the break.

dc comics sunglasses

These sunglasses are slightly less dramatic than the other mask sunglasses we recently featured, but they’re just as awesome (not to mention a little more practical to wear).

Choose from Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn if you’re feeling mischievous or Robin and Wonder Woman when you want to be the hero.

Beautiful images of planets and galaxies far, far away are embedded into these antique bracelets. Etsy shop owner Jersey Maids hand makes each lovely bangle with your choice from 36 images of planets, nebulas, and star systems. And the shop promises that 10% of the profits from every galaxy line sale will go to the Planetary Society to help fund space exploration and research.

batman character sunglasses

These are masks that double as sunglasses. Seriously.

“The city needs your help! Suit up in an instant with these Sun-Staches, and battle the bland and mediocre. Don the shades and embrace your secret identity. Show your heros true colors and rise to the calling! Be Batman! Be Catwoman! Channel your inner Harley Quinn! Laugh it up as The Joker!”

I totally need the Cat Woman version like now. Take a closer look at the sunglasses after the break.

Wolverine claws that retract and deploy on command are nothing new. However, MyoWare’s claw reacts to your muscle movements. It senses when you flex your muscle and the four inch claws come popping out in a fraction of a second. Then just relax your arm and the claw recedes into the glove.

The best news though is MyoWare has made their hardware technologies open source and has generously shared their step-by-step instructions to build the claws for yourself.

Aside from the awesome cosplay possibilities, their Kickstarter campaign is giving back to the community. They will be donating one of the new 4th generation sensors for every five backers to Limbitless Solutions, a non-profit that builds and donates 3D-printed myoelectric prosthetic arms to children in need around the world.

Check out the video of the claws in action after the break.

These leather padded leggings are just so unique I had to share. It reminds me of the Xenomorph in the Alien series or some cool futuristic armor. Etsy shop owner Aakasha says these leggings are made for comfort combing 95% viscose, 5% spandex, and 100% genuine leather ribbing.

One of the most frustrating things that can happen while cosplaying is having a wardrobe malfunction during a convention. This “Tailor’s Assistant” from Mardigan Enterprises can definitely be a lifesaver.

The beautiful handmade leather bracer is accented with rivets and brass filigree to match perfectly with your Renaissance-steampunk-knight-warrior-pirate-whatever cosplay. And check out the giant list of sewing essentials:

-replica vintage crane sewing scissors, very usable and quite sharp!

-removable brass thimble with a cut slot for attachment via a strap

-wooden needle case with needles and pins

-handmade red felted pin cushion

-removable wooden bobbins with decorative colored thread; thread and bobbins could be replaced for practical use

It’s even tied together with a cloth measuring tape. Just lovely.

I’m such a huge fan of hip bags; they’re more comfortable than shoulder bags, and can always double as a cosplay accessory. These fashion flare bags from Etsy shop Cyber Gypsy Fashion are made from super soft suede and come in a ton of color and stitch variations.

I could easily add this to my gypsy, faerie, elf costume and it has a billion pouches and zipper pockets to hold all my stuff. That’s really the most important part. Plus the adjustable straps ensure that comfort and sizing will be a cinch.
