Cosplay

sabine main

I spotted my first Star Wars Rebels cosplay the other day and, as a fan of the show and Sabine herself, I was so stoked to see this Sabine Wren cosplay pop up.

Meet Eitanya. A member of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club. Specifically, the Buurenaar Verda Clan based in Florida. Not only did she make the armor, but her cosplay is pretty kick ass. You can see her build info over on the Mandalorian Mercs forum. She’s definitely set the bar for Sabine cosplay.

Mystique costume

I like when people put a lot of time and planning into their Halloween costumes, and Redditor drbonedaddy and his girlfriend went all out. He became Gambit, and she put together a rather awesome Mystique costume. She even dyed her contacts! Here’s more info about the build:

Wasn’t easy at all. The spandex suit had to first be landmarked, then painted. Each side took three to four hours and had to be allowed to dry overnight. Applying the latex for the scales on her face and painting it took two to three hours as well. She dyed her hair for the costume which was another hour. So in total it was roughly a 10 hour process over the course of a few days. I’m sure there are some very intricate costumes posted on here, but it really was a painstaking process to make it come together

Game Of Bones [Cosplay]

game-of-bones

These costume-wearing doggies are playing The Game Of Bones, which simply requires that they look absolutely adorable. Yay! It looks like they won!

The above set, which is a tribute to Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons, was created by Samantha Watt, Cynthia Martin and Dorothy Barnard of Dallas, Texas. The three ladies worked for nearly two months to create the costumes and the throne. The bones are made from foam and are covered with bondo resin and drywall mud, and then they were painted to look like iron. The dogs participated in a couple of costume contests in Dallas: Bull-O-Ween and Pug-O-Ween, which are held in order to raise support for rescue organizations in the area. Last year, the dogs won both competitions with their Breaking Bad-themed costumes. You can check that award-winning ensemble after the break along with more Game Of Bones pics.

DIY Krang Hat

If you’re not fully committed to making an elaborate Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume like this one, you can cheat and simply craft a Krang hat. Instructables user ashleyjlong made the hat for an art gallery project and then realized it would work well as part of a costume. All you need is pink fleece or an already-made pink fleece beanie, felt, black paint or yarn, glue, stuffing, and basic tools.

Creating Krang’s creepy but cute face is pretty straightforward, and this is definitely a project you can tackle in an evening. So, if you still don’t have any kind of Halloween costume to wear, this is a good last minute idea.

See a couple in-progress shots after the break.

sexy-ebola-containment-suit-8

Today in “reasons I hate humanity”, I present this Sexy Ebola Containment Suit. It’s not to be confused with the photoshopped sexy Ebola costume (which was actually a Breaking Bad costume) that’s been making the rounds on the Internet lately.

Yep. This is a real costume that is actually being sold.

I just…I can’t.

Little Big Barda

It turns out that Big Barda can be adorable and fierce at the same time. Pattie Marcotte of Heroic Girls said Anya wanted to be Big Barda for Halloween this year, and despite the challenges of making the costume, she and her family figured it out. They crafted every part of Anya’s ensemble from the armor to the Mega Rod. The finished outfit is absolutely wonderful.

roomba cat

Life on the internet can be rough sometimes, which is why having cats that ride around in costumes on Roombas has become a moral imperative.

Luckily for us, Max-Arthur aka Shark Cat is back and he’s all dressed up for Halloween.

Here he is as Princess Jasmine taking us all on a magic carpet ride.

Check out the video after the break.

Infinity Gauntlet dress

The Infinity Gauntlet is a dangerous weapon in the hands of the Marvel villain Thanos. It holds six soul gems, and when the powers of those jewels combine… well, that’s when it’s time to hold onto your butts. One cosplayer took the concept of the powerful gauntlet and turned it into a creative dress. Why wear the Infinity Gauntlet on your hand when you can cover your whole body with it? I think Thanos should adopt this look.

The queen in Aliens 2 is absolutely terrifying, but this one is simply beautiful. It was made by animation director Ashley J. Long and features a headpiece made from 50-60 pieces of cardstock that were carefully arranged and glued together over the course of two months. Jewels were added for a little creepy sparkle and the whole thing sits atop a bike helmet that secures it to her head.

There’s also a paper mache egg and a spine made from aluminum. Add a very elegant black dress and you have a seriously stunning outfit.

Star-Lord Lolita Dress

I have no doubt that Peter Quill’s red Star-Lord jacket from Guardians of the Galaxy will be all the rage at Halloween parties this year. It’s easy to find a jacket that resembles what he wore in the film, and all you need to add to sell the look is a walkman. If you wanted to put something a little different together though, you can’t go wrong with this lolita-style Star-Lord dress by Siren.

Though I adore the red overcoat, my favorite part of this costume design is the Awesome Mix messenger bag. I bet we’ll see a cosplayer tackle this look when convention season swings back into gear.
