NBX hoodie 1

I don’t know who’s making design decisions at Hot Topic these days, but I hope they never leave because this new The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack & Sally reversible girls hoodie is perfection.

Feeling more like Jack one day and Sally the other? No problem. Just reverse the hoodie and you’re all set. I love this thing. Seriously.

It comes in sizes XS – 3XL and is in stock now.

Head after the break to see more pictures (including the Sally side).

erza_cosplay 1

Fairy Tail’s Erza Scarlet is a mage with some kickass armor. Koralene Cosplay cast some spells of her own when she made this striking Erza costume because she made craft foam and posterboard look metallic. Even with the lightweight materials, it must have been a challenge to move in the bulky costume.

These Disney princesses are more than capable of saving themselves, thank you very much. This group of cosplayers imagined much tougher versions of the ladies and debuted their look at Anime Revolution in Vancouver, B.C. last weekend.

ice-bucket-challenge-costume-1

One thing about trends, no matter how well meaning they may be, someone is going to try and make a buck if they can.

That seems to be the case here with this Ice Bucket Challenge costume.

I will say that they get some leeway from me on this for adding a link to ALSA and donating $10 to ALS research for every Ice Bucket Challenge costume sold. But $40 for this is laughable. That having been said, you could probably make your own version of this costume for under $10 and donate the other $30 to ALSA.

I Am Creepy Groot

There will likely be more than a few people running around at Halloween dressed as Groot, and hopefully none of them will be wearing this mask. I think it’s because there’s no makeup around his eyes, but this guy looks like a deranged serial killer. Please, when you dress up as Groot, do not be this guy. If you are this guy, please stay away from me.

I know, I know, I know – again with a Chris Pratt post. But, here’s the thing, he keeps doing really awesome stuff like fulfilling his promise to visit sick kids as Star-Lord.

Here we see him making everyone’s day at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. As part of his visit, he arranged a screening and let the kids wear the jacket. According to E!:

The 35-year-old actor spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.

Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.

He also made sure to hang with kids who couldn’t attend the screening so they got to meet him and take pictures.

Basically, he’s perfect.

Head after the break to see a couple of tweets about his visit.

One of the things I love best about fashion these days is just how many companies have geek couture. Once upon a time, if you wanted to show your love for Star Wars, you had the option of a t-shirt or halloween costume, but it wasn’t the sort of thing you could wear if you wanted to dress up a bit.

Luckily, companies like We Love Fine are committed to making fashionable geekwear, and now they’ve teamed up with Goldie to create a Star Wars boutique collection.

My personal favorites are the Princess Leia Dress (complete with a hair buns hoodie), a very chic Empire Strikes Back skirt, and the Dark Side Glamour dress, but they have other great styles as well in sizes small to extra large.

501st ice bucket

The 501st Legion is no stranger to combining charity and Star Wars, so they really rose to the occasion when J.J. Abrams nominated them for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Many members participated, and they edited a sampling of doused Stormtroopers, Tusken Raiders, and more together in a video. Some of them even use their helmets, a.k.a. buckets, to dump icy water over themselves.

Don’t forget to visit the ALS website to donate and learn more about the Ice Bucket Challenge.
