This X-23 by KOCosplay was created and modeled for both Katsucon 19 and NYCC 2013. She worked in partnership with Ravenswood Leather for the leather features, but made everything, including the claws, herself.

Both badass and talented. Always a nice combination. Just like her X-23 counterpart.

armor top

Thanks to this tip from Fashionably Geek reader and armor maker Deakath, we get to show off some truly exquisite leather working and armor from her Deviant Art gallery.

Her bio states she’s a self taught artist and 26 years old. Given the level of awesome in her work, I think she’s reincarnated from some past armor master.

Take some time to check out more of her work after the break.

mother of dragons

This Daenerys Targaryen cosplay would be amazing on its own, but when we found out that the cosplayer made the stunning dragon claw necklace as well, we knew we had a winner.

You can find the necklace pictures as well as versions of Dany’s slave collar and dual claw necklace at her Jellyfish Soup Etsy store.

subzero beanie mask

Hats and scarves are great and all, but here’s a great way to keep your face warm without inadvertently giving someone a means to choke you should you suddenly be challenged to a “FIGHT!”.

I present the Sub-Zero crochet mask/beanie hat by Etsy seller Sun’s Fashion.

star wars xmas sweater

Fashionably Geek’s own Amy Ratcliffe may have stumbled upon the world greatest sweater for all of your “Ugly Christmas Sweater” needs.

Of course, as she mentions, it’s not ugly. It’s GLORIOUS.

It was made by Redditor imnojezus‘ co-worker by modifying an existing sweater with some needle-felting skills.

But, I’m sure those people who do not worship at the altar of Star Wars will think it’s ugly, which means you can wear it and fulfill your party requirements while still allowing you to feel utterly fabulous.

destiny cosplay

Maybe it’s cheating, but cosplayer Sloan Hood has an inside track when it comes to this cosplay for the upcoming Bungie game Destiny.

He’s an artist at Bungie. Which means that he had all kinds of access to the artwork for the costume and the 3D models for the “Thorn” sidearm (which, incidentally, looks frakkin’ amazing).

Apparently, he got his hands on the actual model for the gun from Destiny’s 3D artists, broke it up, and ran it through a 3D printer.

I wonder if he’ll make an extra one for me. :-)

Check it out after the break.

wonder woman cosplay

I wrote about Kamui Cosplays Armor Making E-Book yesterday, so it’s pretty nice to see her armor front and center in this Wonder Woman cosplay at Comickaze 2013.

She really does amazing work. Check out another view of this gorgeous cosplay after the break.

sweater pants top

Cozy sweaters are one of my favorite things about cold weather. They make you feel enveloped in warmness. Steven May thinks your legs and butt should get to share in the joy your arms and torso get from sweaters so he’s come up with swants. Sweater pants! Sure, they may look a little silly but how many of us wear tights with character faces all over them? This isn’t so different. I bet this guy can’t wait to make a pair to match his cat sweater.

See more photos of this spectacular creation after the break.
