fallout mario top

Mario’s been a doctor. He’s raced cars. He’s even gone to space. But he’s never experienced a Fallout-style apocalypse—until now. Redditor 3dbdotcom recently cosplayed as a Fallout-themed Mario, and his costume is on point (all that scrap metal!). He also made his friend and wife equally awesome Fallout-themed Luigi and Princess Peach costumes, which you can check out in the gallery below.

Why paper Baroque wigs, you may ask? Russian artist Asya Kozina explains on her Behance page:

Historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the Baroque era. This is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics, no practical sense. But they are beautiful. I made a series of wigs. Paper helps to highlight in this case the main form and not be obsessed unnecessary details.

Just stay out of the rain.

Take a closer look at the designs below.

So what does Lara Croft do when she’s down to her last arrow? Well, in this humorous short fan film from Fury Fingers and cosplayer Shiveeejam, she tries to blow up a barrel that the bad guys inexplicably placed in a strategically devastating location. As you’ll soon see, she’s very impatient and a little too slow with the bow.

I’m always astounded by the amount of effort some cosplayers go to for authenticity, but this particular cosplay of The Force Awakens‘ protagonist and antagonist is above and beyond.

Not only have cosplayers Nixie Sweet and FenixEmber nailed the costumes for Rey and Kylo Ren respectfully, but they took advantage of the winter weather to produce some of the most authentic Star Warscosplay photos I’ve ever seen.

The photo set was taken by photographer Jason Laboy, and you can experience them in all their splendor below.

If Guillermo del Toro never gets the opportunity to make Hellboy 3, we can take solace in ‘Hellpugs’ by Pupstar Sonoma.

As you’ll see on the Pupstar Sonoma website, they really went all out with the costumes.

Jurassic Parkour [Video]

Despite his short arms, this T-Rex lives a pretty active lifestyle:

1. Here he is at the gym prepping for American Ninja Warrior.

2. Here he is shoveling snow.

3. Here he is running from a Jeep.

Now T-Rex is trying parkour. Just look at how graceful he is.

3dmask

3D printing company Zortrax (who, given that company name, may also be looking to recruit five teenagers with attitude to take on Rita Repulsa) have provided the files and the instructions to 3D-print this badass superhero mask.

The design is intended to be used with Zortrax’ M200 printer using Z-HIPS printing filament which, to quote their website, is a “thermoplastic polymer allows for high impact resistance making it perfect for prototype enclosures and covers” (and superhero costumes, it would appear). Still, if you don’t have their proprietary printer and fancy-schmancy printing filament the STL files can be fed into any printer. Just the sort of generosity we’d expect from a giant disembodied head in a fish tank.

We might be going overboard with the Zortrax/Zordon thing.

Check out shots of the finished product below.
