Chelsea Shiels is a florist by trade, but her Etsy shop really took off when she expanded beyond flower crowns to the kind of crown that any mermaid would covet. Check out more of her stunning work below. [click to continue…]

We’ve seen our fair share of makeup tutorials, but Chrisspy has taken a new approach that’s clearly great for both cosplay and casual wear. Yup. Bust out that black turtleneck and head to the club like this on Saturday night. [click to continue…]

pokenails

Pokémon Go has swept the planet and we’ve seen ripple effects through everything from cosplay to fashion. Which is why it doesn’t surprise me to see that Pokémon Go nail designs are on the rise.

Just hit up #pokemongonails or #pokemonnails on Instagram and you’ll see a sudden burst of designs since the game’s release.

I’m still waiting for the first Pokémon Go-themed hair art. Got Poké Ball hair or something? Send us a tip! Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

conan costume

It looks like The Flaming C got a costume upgrade.

Ironhead Studio has crafted costumes for many of Hollywood’s big budget superhero movies, but now their skills will be put to the ultimate test. Can they make Conan O’ Brien into a proper superhero despite his lack of muscles, lack of a butt and tiny crotch area?

See what they came up with in the video below. [click to continue…]

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…]

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…]

Stare at the mouths. Yeah, this is even weirder to look at when you’re delirious from Pokémon Go-related exhaustion.

Well, it looks like Tony got a bit of a weapons upgrade, huh? Mars Studio‘s “Invincible Iron Man” armor design looks like it has enough firepower to take down all of Hydra.

iris

Once again, Dutch fashion designer Iris Van Herpen has skillfully incorporated 3D printing into her newest fashion line. With Seijaku, which is part of her LUCID collection, Van Herpen has printed up dresses and accompanying shoes that evoke images of sea creatures like squid, starfish, and even coral.

I don’t know where you’d wear a dress like this, but I have no doubt you’d be the center of attention.

Gwendoline Christie is also a fan of her work, having taken part of her Quaquaversal show and having a dress 3D printed onto her during the presentation.

It’s interesting to see the progression in her designs as 3D printing innovations continue to expand. Check out more of these amazing designs below. [click to continue…]

With a bit of paint, clever lighting, photo-editing, and a little imagination, artist Lisha is able to transform her arms into trippy optical illusions.

She noted on Bored Panda that she’s “fascinated by anything weird or unusual.”

Apparently, so are we.
