The newly released Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy gives you a look into the Lucas Archives to see the incredible costumes that made the original trilogy come to life onscreen. It contains over 200 photographs, sketches, and behind-the-scenes photos and notes about how all those amazing costumes came together. Not only will this give you a new appreciation of just how much work went into the costumes, but it just might be the inspiration for your next cosplay.

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.

Space nerds, we have your slippers. These space shuttle slippers are one size fits all so you can pretend you’re the shuttle and make rocket noises as you wander around your house. They’ve also got non-slip dots on the bottom to help keep you on your feet before you’ve had your morning coffee.

sabine main

I spotted my first Star Wars Rebels cosplay the other day and, as a fan of the show and Sabine herself, I was so stoked to see this Sabine Wren cosplay pop up.

Meet Eitanya. A member of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club. Specifically, the Buurenaar Verda Clan based in Florida. Not only did she make the armor, but her cosplay is pretty kick ass. You can see her build info over on the Mandalorian Mercs forum. She’s definitely set the bar for Sabine cosplay.

Mystique costume

I like when people put a lot of time and planning into their Halloween costumes, and Redditor drbonedaddy and his girlfriend went all out. He became Gambit, and she put together a rather awesome Mystique costume. She even dyed her contacts! Here’s more info about the build:

Wasn’t easy at all. The spandex suit had to first be landmarked, then painted. Each side took three to four hours and had to be allowed to dry overnight. Applying the latex for the scales on her face and painting it took two to three hours as well. She dyed her hair for the costume which was another hour. So in total it was roughly a 10 hour process over the course of a few days. I’m sure there are some very intricate costumes posted on here, but it really was a painstaking process to make it come together

Game Of Bones [Cosplay]

game-of-bones

These costume-wearing doggies are playing The Game Of Bones, which simply requires that they look absolutely adorable. Yay! It looks like they won!

The above set, which is a tribute to Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons, was created by Samantha Watt, Cynthia Martin and Dorothy Barnard of Dallas, Texas. The three ladies worked for nearly two months to create the costumes and the throne. The bones are made from foam and are covered with bondo resin and drywall mud, and then they were painted to look like iron. The dogs participated in a couple of costume contests in Dallas: Bull-O-Ween and Pug-O-Ween, which are held in order to raise support for rescue organizations in the area. Last year, the dogs won both competitions with their Breaking Bad-themed costumes. You can check that award-winning ensemble after the break along with more Game Of Bones pics.

Little Big Barda

It turns out that Big Barda can be adorable and fierce at the same time. Pattie Marcotte of Heroic Girls said Anya wanted to be Big Barda for Halloween this year, and despite the challenges of making the costume, she and her family figured it out. They crafted every part of Anya’s ensemble from the armor to the Mega Rod. The finished outfit is absolutely wonderful.

roomba cat

Life on the internet can be rough sometimes, which is why having cats that ride around in costumes on Roombas has become a moral imperative.

Luckily for us, Max-Arthur aka Shark Cat is back and he’s all dressed up for Halloween.

Here he is as Princess Jasmine taking us all on a magic carpet ride.

NES controller 1

Even after all these years, retro gaming is still the one.

Do you long for the days of simpler gaming systems? If so, this ring from Austin Moore’s Earth Art Jewelry and Gem might be for you. The sterling silver band features engraved bricks a la Super Mario Bros. surrounding the game controller, and the A and B buttons feature natural rubies. That’s what we call leveling up.

The ring is made to order and has a 1-2 week turnaround.
