leia jon colbert-21 (dragged)

Y’know how J.J. Abrams is helping raise money for UNICEF by working with Omaze to give away a role on Star Wars Episode VII as part of the Force For Change? Well, it looks like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert just got word as well.

Personally, I hope both of them get a role because they’re amazing and hilarious.

Plus. Jon Stewart as Leia. What more do you need in life?

Make sure you’re not drinking anything and check it out of the break.

This official Ramona Flowers bag from Scott Pilgrim is set to make its debut at SDCC. It is being made available by Oni Press and will initially be sold only at the convention.

If you can’t make it, don’t worry. The bag will be for sale in their webstore once SDCC has come and gone.

pixel sunglasses

Have people throwing disapproving glances at you every day? Slide on these snazzy sunglasses and tell them to just “deal with it”. In fact, “deal with it” is a good answer to almost any question. I love when memes turn into practical products.

bee and puppy cat cosplay

Cosplayer Amanda Dawn really knows how to cosplay with accessories to full effect. The last time we saw her, she was cosplaying Daenerys with her very own full sized Drogon.

Now? She’s brought the crotch ice out for her Bee and Puppycat cosplay. See what we mean after the break…

nightwing_by_okumurafin-d7qdqi2

Dick Grayson is charming as Robin, but he’s amazing as Nightwing. The hero is fierce, sure, but he also has a much cooler costume. Cosplayer OkumuraFin captures the blues and blacks of Nightwing’s ensemble perfectly. He looks like he belongs in the pages of a comic.

Jurassic park tattoo

Jurassic Park was terrifying for many reasons, but it especially got spine-tingling when the velociraptors learned how to open doors. Even just looking at this awesome / unique / hilarious tattoo gives me the shivers I felt while watching the kitchen scene in the movie.

We believe this tattoo was done at Jackson Street Tattoo in Seattle.

assassin's creed cosplay

During the gaming convention E3, the makers of Assassin’s Creed caused a bit of a stir when they said there wouldn’t be any female assassins in the next game. Ubisoft’s creative director said it was too costly and too much extra work. These cosplayers at GaymerX are doing their best to prove Ubisoft wrong by pointing out how silly it is.

i wish i was batman

Being Batman has its perks. I mean, there’s the tragic origin story and regular deaths of those around you, but you’d be rich and have a lot of cool gadgets. However, if you wish to be Batman, you probably don’t have the money or the fighting skills. This t-shirt says it all.

A man dressed as Peter Griffin from Family Guy attended Allentown Comic Con in Pennsylvania last weekend and entertained the crowd during a break in the cosplay contest. He does some stand-up and is absolutely perfect as the character. It’s hilarious.

Watch his routine after the break…
