dark link shoes

There’s Link and then there’s Dark Link. Retailer Bobsmade (we’ve featured his amazing work we’ve featured several times in the past) has captured both sides of the Legend of Zelda hero’s personality on these hand painted Chucks. They’re so detailed and pretty that I’d be afraid to wear them and get them dirty!

If you need a pair of your own, you can place a custom order. The studio’s artists paint on a white canvas shoe and will add any design and colors you like.

harry potter tattoo

This tattoo was based on concept art for art for Order of the Phoenix. It’s the same person behind that amazing Hogwarts tattoo we featured a while back. Needless to say, this is turning out to be one hell of a Harry Potter sleeve.

iron man hand

Mechanical designer Pat Starace may have created one of the coolest prosthetics ever with this Iron Man 3D-printed glove.

It’s a functional prosthetic that can be fitted with a number of technical and fun additions from LED “lasers” to voice control. In essence, a child can overcome a physical challenge and feel like a superhero at the same time.

Pat’s hoping to put this into mass production, however, he’s currently taking individual requests for now. I hope someone decides to help him develop these because I think it’s an amazing idea.

attack on titan 1

Ready to gear up and face monsters like the humans in Attack on Titan? Then you’ll need your own set of Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear. It comes with all sorts of handy tools like grapple-hooks and a propeller, and the gear has the added bonus of looking cool. Movic has a life-size replica available for pre-order, and the prop looks pretty spot-on.

It’s made from aluminum, resin, and silicone. It’s not for the weak since it weighs 22 pounds, but you could probably wear it with your Titans cosplay for a little while – at least long enough for photos. The gear will be ready to ship in Japan in January.

spidey tank 1

Put on Spider-Man’s iconic red and blue suit without slipping into spandex thanks to this new design from Her Universe. This is the latest look in the company’s Marvel line, and I have to say that I’m a fan of the hooded tank. The hood even looks like Spidey’s mask! This is a much better option than getting bitten by a radioactive spider.

1cb6_batman_flipeez_kids_hat

The weather is going to get cold soon and this hat will keep your kids warm and have them looking fantastic. It’s a Batman laplander with wings on the sides and when you squeeze the left tassel it activates a pump that makes the wings flap! There’s also one with Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with swinging nunchuks.

cosplay couture 1

Courtney Coulson and Luke Milton are taking costume photography to a new level. Their Cosplay Couture project merges cosplay and fashion photography with stunning results. They focus more on the “couture construction technique” rather than one hundred percent accuracy, and the effort means they’ve come up with designs that are both creative and impressive.

They’ve tackled costumes from comic books, shows such as Doctor Who, and movies like The Lone Ranger. They offer insight on the costume and the shoot with each of their posts, and I highly recommend following them on Tumblr.

snow white derby 1

Most Disney princesses may seem timid and meek, but I bet if you gave them skates and put them into a roller derby arena, they’d let all of their aggressions out on the rink. Well, they’d do that after they learned how to skate.

Artist Amanda Robinson imagined several princesses as derby girls, and cosplayer Shreddy Krueger got inspired and became Snow Fight. Snow White looks fierce and badass as a derby princess.

phone

It’s October and time is running short to create the perfect costume. Don’t worry though, because Digital Dudz has you covered with a line of clothing and masks that are super clever. They feature special pockets that will hold your smartphone. All you do to make them amazing is download an app either for iOS or Android and then insert the phone into the built-in pocket for instant Halloween fun.

Check out video after the break to see the effects in action.
