These Star Trek slippers will keep your toes warm as the temperature falls. They come in both men’s and women’s sizes and are available in either Gold (Command), Blue (Science), or Red (Engineering/Security) with matching insignias. These are officially licensed products and have no-slip bottoms to keep you from falling, but if you opt for the red ones even that safety feature might not save you.

The cold doesn’t bother this Elsa Lich Queen from World of Warcraft. Cosplayer Chubear came up with a beautiful way to mash together WoW’s Arthas and Frozen’s Elsa into a stunning ensemble for BlizzCon. She did a positively amazing job with this unique design.

unicorn hood 2

Once upon a time there was a magical hood that turned people into unicorns and kept them warm. It was made from cotton and polyester and featured a rainbow mane and a golden horn and looks a lot like the Magicorn Hood pictured above. Besides featuring a hood to keep your head warm, the unicorn accessory also has pockets to put your hands/hooves in.

See a couple more pictures of the furry hood after the break.

Karen and Charles Kent (yes Kent!) have a thing for Superman—Smallville in particular. The couple’s wedding was inspired by the long running series about Clark Kent, with the event actually taking place at Hatley Castle in British Columbia. You may recognize it as the Lex Luthor mansion from the series. It’s also been featured in the X-Men films and on Arrow. It’s the superhero/villain estate of choice.

Their wedding featured red, blue, and yellow colors in the classiest way possible, and the groom donned a Superman cape for parts of the event. They even explored Smallville filming locations during their honeymoon.

As you’ll see in the pictures and video after the break, it’s a nerdy dream wedding done right.

Ever wonder what it would be like to be a Pokémon? Well, you might be saying to yourself, “Of course. But I’m an adult. I have bills to pay.”

Well, I say you take your hard-earned dough an invest it in one of these adult-sized Mega Charizard Y capes that only cost about 3,600 Yen ($30). Then, you can finally know what it feels like to be a fire-breathing Pokémon! Well, sort of….

The cape will be available for purchase at the Tokyo Mega Pokémon Centre in Japan (it opens on Dec. 12). The Centre is one giant Pokéstore, and you can buy all sorts of Poké stuff there, including a 2,000 Yen (roughly $17) mini-Charizard plushie version of the cape. Yeah, I think I need to start planning a vacation to Japan ASAP.

Check out the plushie cape after the break…

There is plenty of Star Trek cosplay at your average convention, but this is cleverer than most. CaptCash chose to dress as a redshirt who is on an away mission at Comic-Con. He staged every single one as though he was in dire straits from being eaten by a dragon to being run over by a truck. As much as the convention wanted to kill him, he managed to survive every ordeal. Next year he might not be so lucky.

robe harley quinn 1

The options for nightwear just keep getting geekier. There are enough costume robes these days that you could curl up in a different one every day for a month. Kinda cool, no? ThinkGeek has three new options for your closet: Batman, Harley Quinn, and a Walking Dead sheriff robe. Each design features appropriate touches: Batman ears, Harley Quinn’s jester hat, and fake gashes. Plus, they’re all made from polyester.

See the Batman and Walking Dead robes after the break.

Cosplaying kids are always adorable, but this little girl is just stunning. She’s La Muerte from The Book of Life and her Mom didn’t miss a detail while making her costume. It’s covered with candles, skulls, and loads of flowers. Plus, the awesomeness of her makeup is off the charts.

She’s currently in a costume contest at OurKids Magazine so if you’re as impressed as we are, head on over and give her your vote.

This badass corset is the work of fashion designer Rei Narumiya who is also a photographer. She’s designed incredible military-inspired pieces that could be the foundation to your next cosplay. There’s a corset, skirt, and pouch which are each sold separately and look fantastic when worn together. She initially just made these as prototypes, but they were so well-received that they are now being made-to-order for each customer. The weapons are just props, but they give you an idea of the possibilities.

1e2e_back_to_the_future_flux_capacitor_watch

Time traveling isn’t a reality just yet, but I feel like we’re getting closer because a Flux Capacitor watch exists. ThinkGeek is offering a digital watch modeled on Doc Brown’s gadget from Back to the Future and it tells the time and date using Flux Capacitor lights and time circuit LED. Here’s how it breaks down:

Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats)

When you’re tired of being in the moment, switch to the “Time Travel” mode and the time circuit will display a random date. The only problem is that you’ll have to run 88mph to make it work.

See what it looks like on the wrist after the break.
