We’ve featured cosplay and fashion inspired by the work of Hanna Alexander in the past, but she posted this pic of her Final Fantasy gals the other day and we felt it was high time we did a post about this amazing illustrator.

As you’ll see in the pictures below, she’s heavily influenced by all things Disney and Mucha. Her designs are also wildly cosplayable. [click to continue…]

Adam Savage is a fan of cosplay. It’s one of the many reasons why we love him.

Then we saw this video from the 2016 TED conference. In it, he speaks from the heart about his love of cosplay and the community around it. For him, cosplay is more than a hobby—it’s personal, emotional thing that he still struggles to be comfortable with:

Cosplay as storytelling is really personal to me. It’s also probably the hobby I’m most embarrassed about. Even more than prop collecting, it’s a weird thing to be driven to do. And yet it’s important.

Check out the video below and be prepared to love Adam Savage even more. [click to continue…]

Apparently, this adorable little girl asked for this Ghostbusters costume way back when she was 3 1/2 years old. Now that she’s all grown up, it’s time to answer the call. Check out the entire pic below. [click to continue…]

We’ve featured the Pokémon Gijinka (humanized) designs of Grumpy Old Bastard Creations in the past, but he’s been hard at work adding to the collection in the months since. In fact, he’s been working on making cosplay props based on the designs. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

pg vests

We recently spotted our first Pokemon Go cosplay and now we’ve discovered our first Pokemon Go-themed Trainer vests by Volante Design. These vests are handmade in the US and have a zipper pocket on each side to keep basic items secure—like two portable battery chargers. They also have webbing on each side of the hip for other stuff you may want to clip on—like extra battery chargers.

Volante also says the first 40 orders will be numbered special editions, so if you want one, you may want to hurry. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

It’s hot, Hot, HOT! So, these Disney Princesses decided to do what everyone does on a hot summer day—hit the beach and pose sexily in swimwear that perfectly matches the outfit they wear every single day.

Fortunately, Dapper Geek News was there to capture it all. You can even purchase these princess-themed bikinis from Enchanted Bikinis.

Cosplayers: Maid of Might, Ashlynn Dae, Milynn Sarley, Elizabeth Rage, Hendoart and Reagankmay.
