Redditor wlp0604’s two little girls wanted to be Cardcaptor Sakura and Kiro for Halloween (from the Cardcaptor Sakura manga), and since those aren’t costumes you’ll find at the store, their Mom sewed them these beauties. She made every part of their costumes herself, except for the little one’s shoes and her leggings which were a last minute addition because it was chilly outside.

last unicorn costume 1

For my money, The Last Unicorn is one of the best fantasy novels and fairy tales out there. I enjoy the book and the animated movie very much and am always glad to see costumes inspired by the story. Cosplayer Evie E made a gorgeous version of the unicorn in her human form as Lady Amalthea. She based the design on the one in the movie but added her own touches to make it more fitting for a unicorn. She did a fantastic job.

This Rocket Raccoon cosplay is so impressive, you’d swear you’re looking at a stuffed figure. It’s the work of Shoko and Jérôme Cosplay and took about a month to create. That sounds like a long time, but considering how good this looks, it’s hard to believe this didn’t take even longer. On that note, Rocket really needs to hang out with this guy.

Kids often wear costumes to meet the characters at Disney World, but the costumes Jennifer Rouch makes for her 3-year-old daughter Lane are really something special. Mom makes all the costumes from scratch including accessories that go right down to the little birds that perch on Snow White as she sings in rags by the wishing well.

The idea came to Jennifer when she noticed that her daughter was becoming very shy. Since they go to Disney World often, she decided to try to conquer Lane’s shyness by letting her dress like the characters in hopes that it would help her feel more comfortable around new people. Interact she did and it looks like Lane and the cast members at the parks are having a lot of fun.

stay puft dog

Luke Skywalker (yes!) the Great Dane just saw his first ghost, and he is not a fan. Luke’s owner dressed as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (well, woman) from Ghostbusters for Halloween, and when Luke sees her in costume, he heads the opposite direction. He does everything he can to be as far away from the puffy costume as possible, and I can’t say I blame him for being afraid of ghosts.

Watch the pup react to Stay Puft in the video after the break.

You should be warned, particularly if you have kids, that the feels in this video are off the charts.

Mike Wilson’s 5-year-old son, Jayden, has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. The little guy is only expected to live a year, so Dad gave him the surprise of his life with a visit from Spider-Man for his birthday. It’s short and sweet, and simply beautiful.

The family has also set up GoFundMe and Facebook pages for those wishing to lend their support.

renaissance batman

Photographer Sacha Goldberger recently took part in a photo exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris. He created positively stunning portraits of comic book superheroes and villains, Star Wars, and Disney characters as they would appear in 16th century art. He spent two years creating his Super Flemish series (inspired by Flemish paintings) and worked with a team of twelve people to get the makeup, hair, and special effects just right. Five costume designers made the outfits for the characters in the series including: Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Hulk, and many more.

The photos have been retouched, but even without that, this series is absolutely magical. The art looks like paintings rather than photographs. Plus, the likenesses to actors like Christopher Reeve and Lynda Carter (an effect created with makeup and lighting) is uncanny at times.

Check out more of Goldberger’s amazing images after the break.

Tinker Bell is one tough fairy, and in this cosplay she looks like she could take on Captain Hook, Smee, and the whole crew without any trouble. It features cosplayer Sandra Disney in pictures by Meian Photography.

Scarecrow cosplay main

This Batman Arkham Knight Scarecrow cosplay blew me away. The photography is by Rich Johnson and the mask was created by Matt Sprunger at Stage 1 Studios in Winter Park, FL with assistance from LuAndra Whitehurst and Robert Tuscani.

I’m still trying to track down the cosplayer under the mask, so if you know who it is, please drop it in the comments.

Update: I’ve discovered that the man behind the mask is the man who made the mask. So, double kudos to Matt Sprunger.

Head after the break to see more of this amazing cosplay.
