If you find yourself driving up Route 460 in Virginia and happen to whiz past what looks to be Darth Vader picking up trash, don’t worry, you’re not hallucinating.

Henry Wakley of Blacksburg, Virginia spends most of his time working in New Zealand, but he’s back in town for a couple of weeks and decided to adopt a mile-and-a-half stretch of Route 460 through the state’s Adopt-A-Highway program under the name “Darth Vader”. Naturally, he’s walking up and down his patch collecting garbage while dressed as the Senior of the Skywalkers. Well, you would, wouldn’t you?

According to WSLS10, someone actually called the cops of Wakley, accusing him of being Batman. Fortunately the police set that particular caller straight, presumably by saying, “No, don’t worry, it’s just Darth Vader out for his daily trash pickup.” We also presume that Darth Vader shook his fist menacingly and complained, muttering something about “that Goddamn Batman always getting all of the credit”.

Street Fightin’ Snow White

Man, I love this Street Fighter-style Snow White cosplay by Azulette. I only wish that a game existed based on it. It’s pretty safe to say that Disney wouldn’t be down with a princess fighting game, but just imagine what it would be like. Elsa’s freeze blasts would be no match for Snow White’s dreaded 7 dwarfs attack.

While the first rule of T-Rex Fight Club has been firmly established, they didn’t outline any rules regarding filming it on a smartphone apparently. Given their tiny arms, they simply didn’t consider it as an option. Holding an event at Burning Man was mistake #2.

Marvel’s cosplay variant covers are absolutely wonderful, but it appears that Valiant truly has it’s finger on the pulse of the Internet.

This December Valiant will release a series of cat cosplay variant covers created by Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety. Plus, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition (BARC)—a non-profit, no-kill shelter located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Check out the covers below.

Dragon Con never disappoints when it comes to cosplay, and 2016 kept the bar high. As always, Sneaky Zebra was there to capture some of the best cosplay at the event and package it neatly into one 4-minute video. Check it out below. [click to continue…]

Colorado Springs high school student Sarah MacDonald recently made herself a shoo-in for homecoming queen by ditching the traditional prom dress in favor of the ever popular inflatable T-Rex costume.

For the uninitiated, T-Rex costumes have been dubbed “the horse mask of 2016” and have been seen shoveling snow, playing soccer on a horse and demonstrating ninja prowess. However, this latest development could be the costume’s “crowning” achievement.

Even Sarah was shocked, stating “Still can’t believe I won homecoming queen because of a T-Rex costume”. We aren’t surprised at all. AT ALL. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Cosplayer Dynamite Webber does the best Nightwing in the biz—his New 52 armor is testament to that. It’s so good, in fact, that it may have drawn the attention of the designers behind Batfleck’s new tactical armor. In that post we talked about some possible inspirations for the design, but this is definitely the most spot on. Check out the comparison below and decide for yourself. [click to continue…]

Sydney-based Kelly Crawford created these Stranger Things cosplays for her daughters during their recent trip to Australia’s Oz Comic Con. Her kids may not have seen the show, but Kelly gave them enough information that they were able to get into character. Needless to say, they had a blast. Check out more pics below.

Looking like the person who portrays the character you’re cosplaying isn’t a prerequisite, but it never hurts. The cosplayer known as the Infamous Harley Quinn is pretty much a dead ringer for Margot Robbie, and she’s got the Suicide Squad cosplay down pat. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
