baby eleven

Millie Bobby Brown may only be 12-years old, but her performance as Eleven in Stranger Things was brilliant for any actor at any age. I don’t think she could have pulled it off as a baby though. But who knows? She’s pretty damn talented.

Actually, this version of Eleven is played by Joey, who’s proud mom @lauraiz posts all kinds of adorable cosplay photos like this. See more examples below. [click to continue…]

A few years ago, Jason Isenberg was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. To give him and his wife Cheryl an escape, they turned to cosplay. Now that Jason has made a recovery, they’ve added a dog to the mix – a Boxer dog named Fable.

How to they celebrate expanding their duo to a trio with the addition of a puppy-wuppers? Easy – Dragon Age cosplay. Jason is cosplaying as Cassandra, Cheryl is cosplaying as Cullen, and Fable is cosplaying as the dog sometimes referred to by fans as Barkspawn. Neato!

Once again, Catherine Elhoffer has delivered on nerdy fashions we love. This time around, she’s inspired by DC Comics with both Batgirl and Wonder Woman designs.

The Batgirl-inspired dress is purple textured spandex and black scuba and comes with bat ears on the hood and side pockets. The Wonder Woman tunic is inspired by Gal Gadot’s costume and features antique gold stretch vinyl, dark red Techno, navy textured Liverpool (spandex/poly blend), side pockets, and a faux skirt tabard. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

For photographer Aaron Sheldon‘s four-year-old son, visiting the doctor’s office was akin to entering an unfamiliar and foreboding abyss. However, his fear was conquered when he “decided to act brave like an astronaut”, and donned a spacesuit for the occasion.

The initial photograph of the experience has since grown into an awesome series entitled “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps“, which features the little astronaut wearing his spacesuit to a variety of locations. Sheldon notes:

My goal is that the images from my “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps” project will remind other moms or dads out there who may be losing their patience in line at the grocery store or coffee shop that our kids aren’t just acting like fools – they are exploring new frontiers. Our job as parents is to act as their mission control and co-pilot to make sure they can explore as much of their new world as possible.

The annual Labyrinth Of Jareth Masquerade was held earlier this month at the Biltmore Hotel in L.A. and there was gorgeous cosplay everywhere. Seriously, this looks like a truly magical experience. From the description:

The Labyrinth of Jareth is a Masquerade Ball based on Venetian tradition, Celtic faerie and goblin lore, and storie of fantasy and wonder. Lost within the borders of chaos and light, nobles dance among the Fae while goblins wait with hungry eyes in the wings of their court. Some of the most amazing fantasy artists, costumers and special effects crews participate in bringing a diverse host of creatures and mythologies alive each year. This Masquerade is one of the few classical events open to ANYONE who has dreamed of a surrealistic fantasy fading into a single night of dance and revelry. Music and visuals heighten your senses as the night shields the Goblin Court and the chambers surrounding it. The artists of Sypher Arts Studio continue to proudly offer this tribute to dreamers and imagination.

Dance and dream amongst the Court of Faerie and the darker edge of goblin realms.

Of course, the main point of a Masquerade is to dress in costume to astonish friends and strangers alike. Be imaginative, revel in the ambiance and detail as the world falls down. . .

Lucky for us, photographer John Truong was there to snap some pictures and capture a little of the magic. Check out some of those pictures below. [click to continue…]

Put a tiny dog in a simple Pac-Man costume and set it loose in a maze to pop balloons while dodging googly-eyed ghosts on sticks. That’s a recipe for good Internet right there. See Pac-Pup in action below. [click to continue…]
