It’s no secret that I’m a huge Star Wars Rebels fan and I’m pretty sure I’ve declared my love for Hera more than once, so imagine how thrilled I was when I saw this gorgeous Hera Syndulla cosplay by Feyische.

The lekku alone get a thumbs up from me. Wow.

game-thrones-engagement

These beautiful engagement photos evoke the love between Oberyn Martell and Ellaria Sand from Game of Thrones. Betrothed cosplayers Jesse and Nick first met online because of their passion for the series and specifically for their belief in the R+L=J theory. They even have R+L=J tattoos.

Jesse hand painted the trim details on their costumes while the jewelry was 3D printed by Etsy artisan PrintMyProps.

Instead of a desert climate like Dorne, the pair took photographer Matthew Druin to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The deep greens and old stone structures are the perfect backdrop for their vibrant costumes.

Check out more wonderful photos from this GoT engagement session after the break…

This fantastic body paint is the work of twistinbangs aka Corie Willet. It’s impressive work, especially when you know that she applies it all herself without help. She’s created all sorts of brilliantly colored looks from zombies, to mermaids, to melting faces.

cosplay boom

When I first started writing for Fashionably Geek, I had almost zero idea what cosplay was about. It’s been amazing to get such a great education in what cosplay is and why people love to cosplay in the years I’ve been a contributor.

Recently, Cosplay Boom founder Todd Kenreck went to Geek Girl Con and interviewed some of the cosplayers who attended the Seattle convention. Each person has their own story and reasons for cosplaying, but one thread flows through every interview –– the empowerment and joy of being able to express yourself fully and be accepted and embraced by other people for being who you are.

As to why he chose Geek Girl Con, Kenreck told Polygon, “I go to GeekGirlCon to hear a perspective that isn’t inherently my own, that’s how you grow as a human being.”

Kerneck’s video is a lovely insight and it’s definitely worth checking out.

Watch it after the break.
