Cosplay

mal and jayne

The cosplay was strong at the first FantasyCon in Salt Lake City, Utah and Sneaky Zebra put together a fantastic video covering it all.

Between the amazing dragon that became a set piece for a Dany cosplay, a gorgeously genderbent Mal and Jayne, an appearance by Doug Jones, the men from Lost Girl (swoooon), and the teeniest and most adorable Merida ever, you definitely need to check it out.

Nicely done, FantasyCon.

frozen anna balloon dress

You don’t have to travel from Disney Store to Disney Store hoping to find Anna’s coronation dress from Frozen for your kids; there’s always the option of wearing a balloon version. Professional balloon art creator Brian Getz spent four hours crafting Anna’s dress, and his friend Christina Williamson wore it to an international magician’s conference. She looks lovely, and I adore that Getz made Olaf and snowflakes to accompany the ensemble.

This 3D Alien Xenomorph suit is the work of UK-based James Burton of XRobots who makes all sorts of science fiction props. This is just the latest of his incredible creations. According to 3D Printing Industry:

This isn’t Bruton’s first Alien suit, he previously constructed a suit by sculpting the parts in clay, creating plaster molds and then casting the parts in latex rubber. While he was happy with the results of his first suit he found it to be messy and time consuming to construct. Additionally the head was extremely heavy and the bodysuit was made of more liquid latex, so it was quite difficult to move around and uncomfortable.

His new Xenomorph project will be constructed in small, individual 3D printed parts that can be easily fit together. By designing his suit in pieces not only can he build it to a size specific for himself, but he can put in closures and connectors so each piece can fit together seamlessly.

This great Ramona Flowers cosplay features Varia in a costume she designed. About the only thing she needs to make the look complete is to upgrade with this official Ramona Flowers bag. Pictures by kotojama-san.

She might seem all cute and innocent hanging out with the dwarfs and singing with the animals, but this version of Snow White is ready to kick some Evil Queen butt. Cosplayer Amber Arden has created a fantastic mashup of Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armor with her own princess duds and she looks fantastic. Photos by Estrada Photography.

Do you know what Nightwing does on his day off from fighting crime? He goes to comic book conventions and poses for photos with adorable lil’ Harley Quinns. Do you know what Batman does on his day off? Trick question: he never takes time off because crime never sleeps.

This time-lapse video features the talents of Emily Van Tassel who transforms an ordinary man into an ape in just over three minutes. It’s 194 seconds to be precise and the result is something worthy of Planet of the Apes. It’s all the more amazing for the fact that Emily isn’t even a professional makeup artist.

leia jon colbert-21 (dragged)

Y’know how J.J. Abrams is helping raise money for UNICEF by working with Omaze to give away a role on Star Wars Episode VII as part of the Force For Change? Well, it looks like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert just got word as well.

Personally, I hope both of them get a role because they’re amazing and hilarious.

Plus. Jon Stewart as Leia. What more do you need in life?

Make sure you’re not drinking anything and check it out of the break.

great fairy cosplay 5

In Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the Great Fairies heal Link and help him renew his magic power. Cosplayer Rachel Nycole looks postively enchanting as one of the characters, and it’s easy to believe she’s magical. She gets respect from me because it had to be hard to carefully apply those leaves and probably slightly painful to remove them.

bee and puppy cat cosplay

Cosplayer Amanda Dawn really knows how to cosplay with accessories to full effect. The last time we saw her, she was cosplaying Daenerys with her very own full sized Drogon.

Now? She’s brought the crotch ice out for her Bee and Puppycat cosplay. See what we mean after the break…
