These incredible designs come from the mind of DeviantArtist No Flutter who has reimagined some of your favorite villains as pirates. We’ve previously featured her work and some of the amazing cosplay it’s inspired. This time it’s Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harely Quinn who’ve been transformed. They all look ready to take the bounty in these very sexy and elaborate pirate interpretations of their usual looks. Someone needs to get a group cosplay going for this one because it would be stunning!

creepy cat

The person who shared the instructions on how to make this Cat Sweater with Zipper says “This project features a cute cat sweater which transforms into a creepy cat sweater thanks to the zipper detail!” — but all I see is creepy cat.

Creepy cat and creepier cat.

Still, if you want to make this creepy sweater and call it cute or creepy, you can. Just stay far away from me.

A lot of attention is paid to the costumes that superheroes wear, but their everyday duds are often ignored. The creative team behind Batgirl decided to release images of their inspirations for her wardrobe. There are very real-world versions of the clothes she wears, and if you want to imitate her style, these pictures are a great place to start.

sexy middle earth costumes 1

Each Halloween brings new ridiculous batches of “sexy” costumes. Seemingly everything must be stripped down to scraps to show as much skin as possible. Artist MJ Alexander, a.k.a. Snartha, applied the trend to Middle-earth and came up with some pretty hilarious costumes. I’d actually wear the sexy Tower of Barad-dûr one pictured above.

immortal masks 2

Tested recently took a trip to the Immortal Masks workshop in Southern California to give us a behind the scenes look at how they make stunning, freakishly lifelike creature masks.

Check out more of these amazing masks after the break along with the behind the scenes video.

iron man hand

Mechanical designer Pat Starace may have created one of the coolest prosthetics ever with this Iron Man 3D-printed glove.

It’s a functional prosthetic that can be fitted with a number of technical and fun additions from LED “lasers” to voice control. In essence, a child can overcome a physical challenge and feel like a superhero at the same time.

Pat’s hoping to put this into mass production, however, he’s currently taking individual requests for now. I hope someone decides to help him develop these because I think it’s an amazing idea.

tardis flats

Is there such a thing as too much glitter? Catherine of Aisha Voya Creations was worried that these Exploding TARDIS ballet flats might have a bit too much glitter, but I’m going to go on the record as saying there’s no such thing.

Hand painted and hand glittered, these pretties are made to order as are many of her designs, all of which are very cool and awesomely geeky.

Head after the break to see more of these Exploding TARDIS flats, Dalek flats and Weeping Angel flats.

bowser

He calls himself a Dancin’ Fool on Reddit an The RPF, but I’d call him a darn good costume maker thanks to this Bowser cosplay.

It always amazes me to see what time, effort, and some EVA foam can create.

Check out more pictures after the break. The one with little Mario is my favorite.

dc oh noes

Female geek friendly apparel has come such a long way that it almost hurts my neck from whiplash when I see something this…bad.

The Superman version first came to my attention thanks to a tweet by fellow Fashionably Geek contributor Alan Kistler (thank you Alan!) which cut pretty much to the heart of why they were so…icky. Apparently,  Wonder Woman is a thing to win and girls can only grow up to be Batman’s wife. Amazingly, someone at DC approved these designs.

It’s a bummer because there are a lot of licensed tees out there that empower women to BE the superhero instead of belonging to one.

In this day and age, it’s too bad that these these regressions still happen. However, I content myself with the knowledge that, overall, things are better than they used to be and that we’re making strides all the time.

Rene Auberjonois recently shared this rather horrifying picture on twitter so we’d have enough nightmare fuel to make it until Halloween. It shows the Star Trek actor in the process of removing the makeup that turned him into a Changeling.

He said it took about two and a half hours to turn him into Odo, and that he couldn’t wait to take the masks off at the end of the day. Still, he kept a few when the show ended. Now he’s using them to raise money for a good cause, as he’s auctioning one of the masks to support Doctors Without Borders.
