Cosplay

Creating fantastic cosplay takes a lot of work and it’s made much easier by having the right tools, but not everyone has a fully stocked sewing room. If you’re in Tokyo, then you’re in luck because CosBox is a room you can rent and it’s full of everything a cosplay maker needs. Four people (of the same sex) can rent the room at a time and they’ll have access to two sewing machines, a serger, mannequins, a supply of threads and a huge table to lay it all out.

Room rental rates start at $102.42 and go up to $187.18 and are divided into day or night time blocks. You can rent it overnight or even for a full 24 hours. There’s a full bathroom as well, so you never have to leave once you get on a roll. Through December 28th they’re running a special where your entire rental is free, so now’s the time to start working on that cosplay. I only wish we had something like this here in the States.

This beautiful Sailor Moon-themed wedding will likely give you plenty of inspiration for your coming nuptials, or even just a Sailor Moon party. Michelle and Will had everything themed from the bride’s gorgeous dress and incredible shoes to the attire of every bridesmaid. The cake, placecards, and napkins also got a dose of Sailor Moon, and there were even props for her guests to pose with to create some very memorable shots of the event.

spider-woman costume 1

Batgirl isn’t the only superhero to get a stylish modern costume upgrade; Spider-Woman is following in her footsteps. Jessica Drew has been wearing the same costume for almost 40 years, but that’s about to change. It’s about time! Artist Kris Anka came up with the look that debuted yesterday in the Spider-Man Unlimited mobile game and will premiere on comic book pages in March.

The old outfit was all about the spandex, but now? Drew gets black pants, gloves, leather, and a versatile jacket that works as street wear and a superhero costume. It looks edgier, more practical, and I give it a month before cosplayers are wearing it.

See a couple more pics of the new threads after the break.

santa doctor doom

No one can resist the Christmas spirit, not even Doctor Doom. The villain took the place of Santa Claus once in an issue of Marvel’s What The-?! series, and Imgur user CaptCash used it as inspiration for this spectacular Santa Doom costume. He even made a naughty list to carry around, and it includes Josh Trank, director of the upcoming Fantastic Four film. I love it.

This absolutely gorgeous cosplay features Canadian cosplayer Captain Izzy as a Dark Elf Sorceress from Warhammer. She’s got the costuming and makeup down wonderfully, and believe it or not, this is her first attempt at cosplay.

megatron

Anytime you attend a theme park, do yourself a favor and interact with a costumed villain performer if you can. They’re allowed to be sassy at both Disney parks and Universal, and the results are usually hilarious. We saw a recent example of this with Gaston at Magic Kingdom, but this Megatron is even better. When a woman asks the Transformers villain for a selfie, he speaks some truth about social media (and her hoodie) and I love him for it.

Watch Megatron be awesome in the video after the break.

Hobbit cosplayers

It’s a neat thing when cosplayers get to interact with the people who inspired their outfits and even neater when it’s captured on camera. In their latest video, the folks behind Cosplay Boom speak to fans who made costumes inspired by The Hobbit. They also spoke with WETA artists who worked on the films including Richard Taylor, Lindsey Crummett, and Andrew Baker. They have nothing but praise and appreciation for cosplayers, and it does the heart good to hear.

Cersei Lannister is the woman you love to hate on Game of Thrones, and here she’s wonderfully cosplayed by Arcana Imperia Cosplay. She’s got Cersei’s look of disdain down perfectly. These photos were all taken at Montreal Comiccon by Lexa One Photography.

The three-bladed lightsaber is likely to be what all the fashionable Jedi are wearing at the cons this year, and this version is the best so far. The maker of this prop has done a fantastic job of recreating what we saw in that brief glimpse in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. Its definitely a step up from this 3D printed version.
