Emmetcomplete

Don Wright is a life-long geek, but he only recently started getting into cosplay. With that said, it looks like he’s found his niche. Don made this costume of Emmet from The LEGO Movie, and he did an excellent job. He mentioned in an email that it was challenging for him to keep the proportions accurate while also making sure that the costume was practical to wear, but it looks like he succeeded. Right on, Don!

wonder woman official

UPDATE: Official high-res image added.

The pic is terrible as it’s a screenshot straight from the WB panel at SDCC, but it gives you an idea of what Gal Gadot is going to look like as Wonder Woman. Check out another pic that includes Superman and Batman after the break.

mark hamill beard

We’ve seen (and approved of) the older Luke Skywalker fan art, and it looks as though Mark Hamill will be sporting an even bushier beard in Star Wars VII if his appearance at the UK premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy is anything to go by. He’s right in the middle of filming at the moment, so this is likely a glimpse at his on-screen look.

The beard seems to support rumors that Luke will become something of a reclusive hermit in the new film much like Obi-Wan was.

bat cowl

There’s a 75th anniversary Batman exhibit at Comic-Con, and the cape and cowl that will be used in the upcoming film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is on display.

It’s got this whole eyebrow thing going on, but it still looks pretty awesome. The lighting in the pics don’t really do it justice.

Adam Savage is obsessed with the mecha-glove from Hellboy. And rightfully so—it’s awesome. Now you’ll be able to fully comprehend it’s awesomeness thanks to this 15-minute Tested video. In it, Adam breaks down the fully functioning replica that it took him four years to build.

pratt_frenchbraid copy

Chris Pratt is a man of many talents. He’s an actor, for one. Oh, and he also knows how to do a French braid. Back in April, Pratt posted a picture on Instagram of his braiding work, and during an interview with Entertainment Tonight a reporter asked him to French braid an intern’s hair. How’d he do? Well, let’s just say that Star-Lord braids like a boss.

See him in action after the break…

Rocket Raccoon Back Pack

Seriously, people. We know you love Rocket Raccoon, the tough-talking member of the Guardians of the Galaxy who doesn’t like to be called a raccoon. Now there’s a whole new way to express that love. This Rocket Raccoon backpack recalls the uniform of Rocket and even has its own little tail. Use this as part of cosplay or just enjoy it on its own!

I think cosplayer Charles of Chaks Productions pulled off some of the most cheerful, and detailed, cosplay I’ve seen in a while. His sizable take on Emmet from The LEGO Movie is fantastic, and you’ve got to love how much detail and effort he put into it–I mean, come on, he totally nailed Emmet’s goofy grin!
