ninja-hoodie-scarf

Sneak attack in style and comfort with this ninja hoodie scarf. “Equally epic on either gender” Etsy shop owner Eitanya hand makes the cosy costume scarf from super soft knit material. It measures 42″ long and the mask is permanently attached to the scarf.

Of course, if you need to reveal you’re identity, you can pull the stretchy mask down comfortably. Wear it for warmth or for cosplay, this ninja scarf comes in a ton of colors to match your wardrobe.

Check out more pics and the matching gauntlets after the break.

This beautiful little girl is named Giselle. You wouldn’t know it from this picture, but Down Syndrome left her shy and non-verbal. That all changed when her mom, Kristina Bewley, began sewing costumes for her and taking the family to Disney. The magic she found there had an amazing impact on her life.

Kristina, who professionally photographs special needs children, has been able to capture each precious moment. Her Facebook page is a beautiful album of each costume and smile, with a little sparkle added in:

“She is non-verbal but you can see the way she lights up when we arrive. Each time we go, Giselle becomes more and more confident. She speaks what little words she has more, she isn’t as shy. It’s not just amazing photo ops for us, but watching her bloom is worth the trip.”

Giselle has taught Kristina how “to slow down and really enjoy the little things in life.” With most families rushing around the park to get to the next attraction, Giselle is taking time to smell the flowers, look at the ducks and truly enjoy life. The family uses their season pass to visit Disney every month, and each visit comes with a new costume and new opportunities for Giselle to blossom.

“I don’t want people to not see her Down syndrome, because it’s a part of who she is. But it’s not all that’s there, she is so much more.”

I simply love this Beetlejuice Sandworm hoodie dress by SmarmyClothes. Anyone who loves the movie will get it immediately, but otherwise it’s just a really cool dress.

It’s made to order and perfect for everyday or costume wear.

When cosplayer Kendall Bailey decided to cosplay Maleficent, she didn’t mess around. She made this entire cosplay from scratch, including making the ear and cheek prosthetics, sculpting the horns, sewing the dress, and making the leather strapping. The wings are sculpted feathers cast in latex with smaller real feathers and the result is simply stunning.

cincher-skirt-wings-tails

This cincher skirt is totally inspired by Supernatural’s handsome angel Castiel. His iconic tan jacket and blue tie are incorporated into the design and it even has wings! If this gets me any closer to actually hanging out with the Winchester boys, I’ll take two!

Etsy shop owner Corsairs Boutique has lots of nerdy cincher skirt designs but we’ve included more versions with wings and tails (like Toothless, My Little Pony, and Pikachu) after the break.

doctor who piano

This video features the very talented pianist Sonya Belousova who has done covers of everything from The Walking Dead to Skyrim. This time she plays a beautiful cover of the Doctor Who theme, and she does it with some Whovian flair. Not only does it start with her emerging from the TARDIS to sit at a matching blue piano, but her wardrobe changes throughout the piece as she becomes the various Doctors.

See the video after the break.

imperial-muppets-stormtroopers

The Muppets proudly marched on the Dark Side at Star Wars Celebration this past weekend. What really makes this video though, is the incredibly awful beat box soundtrack.

Check out the videos after the break and prepare to laugh out loud.
