Remember that amazing video of Candace Payne in a Chewbacca Mask last week? Of course you do. Pretty much everyone on the planet has seen it at this point.

With that in mind, Kohls (the store where she purchased the mask) recognized the bandwagon and jumped right on. So, they paid Candace a visit with a mega haul of Star Wars toys for her kids. Shameless marketing? Yes. But it’t heartwarming nonetheless.

What really made me smile here is just how thrilled her kids were just getting the masks. Clearly, this family’s love of Chewbacca masks is embedded deeply in their DNA. Check out the video below (click to enlarge). [click to continue…]

tank girl comic cosplay

When Emma Rubini decided to cosplay Tank Girl from Jamie Hewlett’s original comics, she really went for it. Her cosplay looks like she’s been pulled right from the pages. She writes:

“I made my first cel shaded cosplay in 2014 (almost exactly two years ago), Gaige from Borderlands 2,” she wrote. “The photo on the left is from the first time I tried that costume on. As you can see, it wasn’t great. But I kept working, making other cel shaded cosplays along the way, including a revamp of Gaige last summer (now it’s one of my favorite cosplays!) So don’t say that you can’t do it, whether “it” is cel shading, cosplay in general, or any other art form, especially if you’re just starting out. And don’t bash people whose skills aren’t what they could be, because that will discourage them from becoming better at all.”

It nice to see that she encourages others to take chances and support each other with their cosplays. That makes this awesome cosplay even more special. Check out more pics after the break…

R2-D2 Can-Can Cosplay

God, we love everything about this lady and her R2-D2 can-can cosplay. We’re not sure who she is, but she was captured at C2E2 by the legendary David Ngo.

UPDATE: Her name is Lauren Zawilenski and she is awesome. Thanks to her friend Nick for the heads up! Check out the entire costume…

chewbacca joy

The happiness that Candace experiences over a Chewbacca mask is absolutely infectious. Seriously, I kept watching the bit between 2:10 and 2:30 because it just makes me smile. In fact, Peter Mayhew himself chimed in on Reddit to say that the video was “absolutely wonderful”.

Do yourself a favor and watch the whole video. It really is pure joy. [click to continue…]

Remember this amazing female Finn cosplay by Victory Cosplay? Well, feast your eyes on her D.VA from Overwatch. The jumpsuit, the headgear, even the signature wink, she’s got it all down perfectly.

I saw some pretty nasty comments thrown Victory’s way because she chose to cosplay D.VA—which is bullsh*t. Victory should cosplay all the things because she absolutely rocks.

On that note, if she gets a Mech, I’m going to just die from the awesome. Check out more pics below…

Catherine Elhoffer is a huge fan of Hamilton so, naturally, the musical has become the inspiration for some of her new designs.

In this case, she’s started a #Hamilgown project. Judging by how quickly all of this has progressed, I think she’s definitely feeling all sorts of inspired. I can’t wait to see these dresses on models. [click to continue…]

piccolo

It’s been a while since we had Kay Pike on the blog, but she’s back with a Dragon Ball Z Piccolo bodypaint that will blow your mind.

You should know, I wanted to make the “Over 9000” joke somewhere in here, but I didn’t. But I wanted to. This is though….over 9000. Just sayin’

Check out the video below to see it in action. [click to continue…]
