Cosplay

My mind can’t even process the awesomeness of these photos. Thank you John Barrowman—you’ve brought a smile to the face of a dude working early on a Saturday morning. We also need to thank Elhoffer Design and Jessica LG for making these costumes happen.

We already saw some spectacular Pokémon Go cosplay from our friend Ginny Di, and now we have Lyz Brickley doing a great job representing Team Valor.

It looks like The Flaming C got a costume upgrade.

Ironhead Studio has crafted costumes for many of Hollywood’s big budget superhero movies, but now their skills will be put to the ultimate test. Can they make Conan O’ Brien into a proper superhero despite his lack of muscles, lack of a butt and tiny crotch area?

See what they came up with in the video below. [click to continue…]

The Kotobukiya Edward Scissorhands Bishoujo Statue isn’t even out yet, but it already has an awesome cosplay thanks to Giu Hellsing Cosplay. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Being a billionaire has its perks. For example, you could say “I want to be in the next Star Trek movie” and actually make it happen. That’s exactly what Amazon founder Jeff Bezos did and, honestly, can you blame him? I’m sure many of you would do the same thing if you could. From The Hollywood Reporter:

“He was awesome,” said Lin. “It was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage! But it didn’t matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting, like, three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because … he just nailed it every time.”

That kind of makes it sound like he was little more than just an extra (he’s even listed in the credits apparently), so we’ll have to keep our eyes open for his cameo. Watching the video of him in full makeup below will help out with that. Even billionaire aliens enjoy craft services. [click to continue…]

fanorama

I have to say that Fan-O-Rama is among the most impressive fan films I have ever seen. If you were disturbed by that realistic Farnsworth cosplay from a while back, prepare for a much more intense and thorough creeping out. [click to continue…]

We’ve featured cosplay and fashion inspired by the work of Hanna Alexander in the past, but she posted this pic of her Final Fantasy gals the other day and we felt it was high time we did a post about this amazing illustrator.

As you’ll see in the pictures below, she’s heavily influenced by all things Disney and Mucha. Her designs are also wildly cosplayable. [click to continue…]

Adam Savage is a fan of cosplay. It’s one of the many reasons why we love him.

Then we saw this video from the 2016 TED conference. In it, he speaks from the heart about his love of cosplay and the community around it. For him, cosplay is more than a hobby—it’s personal, emotional thing that he still struggles to be comfortable with:

Cosplay as storytelling is really personal to me. It’s also probably the hobby I’m most embarrassed about. Even more than prop collecting, it’s a weird thing to be driven to do. And yet it’s important.

Check out the video below and be prepared to love Adam Savage even more. [click to continue…]

Apparently, this adorable little girl asked for this Ghostbusters costume way back when she was 3 1/2 years old. Now that she’s all grown up, it’s time to answer the call. Check out the entire pic below. [click to continue…]

We’ve featured the Pokémon Gijinka (humanized) designs of Grumpy Old Bastard Creations in the past, but he’s been hard at work adding to the collection in the months since. In fact, he’s been working on making cosplay props based on the designs. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
