Here are the sneakers your inner 12-year-old demands you purchase right now. They’re designed to look like a triceratops and are currently up for funding on kickstarter with plenty of time to make a pledge and support the project. A pledge of $88 will secure a pair for your kids or you can up the ante and $99 will get a pair for yourself. Rewards include sunglasses and polos, but you know you’re only in it so you can have dinosaurs on your feet when they ship this October.

Check out the project video after the break.

batman harley earrings

Harley meets Batman for this fun pair of earrings from Hot Topic. The harlequin diamonds on the bat logo really do kind of work. I wonder what Mistah J would have to say about that?

olava nebula cosplay 2

When Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn drops in to comment with a “Love it” for your Nebula make up test photos, it’s a pretty good indication that you’re doing something right.

From what I can tell, cosplayer Karin Olava may well have created the perfect Nebula cosplay and she’s set the bar pretty high.

Personally, I can’t wait to see more of this cosplay out in the world. It’s so badass.

We’ve also got some pictures after the break.

Kid Leeloo

Leeloo from The Fifth Element is one of those characters you never forget. The story combined with her personality and striking costumes blend to make a memorable movie experience. It clearly made an impression upon this little girl (or her parents). She makes a cute pint-sized Leeloo, and I love the expression of the guy dressed as Zorg in this photo.

nintendo belly warmer

Ever heard of belly warmers? I’m guessing most of us haven’t. The accessory, also called a haramaki, looks like a corset, but it’s design is intended to keep your stomach warm. It used to be worn under clothes, but Japanese company Hobonichi has been treating the garment as a fashionable piece of clothing. And now, they’ve gone geeky with them! They’ve teamed up with Nintendo to make belly warmers featuring Super Mario Bros. and Mr. Saturn. I think they look cozy.

Check out more photos of the belly warmers after the break.

Director James Gunn wanted the make-up effects for the aliens in Guardians of the Galaxy to look genuine, and special effects makeup designer Dave White was the man who made it happen. In an interview with Co. Create he said:

“I’ve been fortunate to have been around the Marvel world for a little while,” he enthused to Co.Create. “I like to think my own artwork and style has worked well within the universe. James had very specific ideas and I would give an interpretation of what I thought would work. Ultimately, it’s down to what the director wants to see: He needs to go through that process of testing ideas to see how they read in the world he wants to create.” He continued, “There is a retro hint in the [Guardians] designs. I was very careful not to use modern creature design influences that could have fallen short in the unique world Gunn had envisioned.”

These incredible images show just how much work went into creating the fantastic aliens that were scene on-screen.

borderlands pants

Cosplayer Kirameku is working on a Nisha the Lawbringer costume, and she decided to make the jeans look cel shaded just like they do Borderlands. These pants look like they’re right out of the pages of a comic. She painted over denim jeans with a mixture of Textilcolor and water. She did an amazing job adding the highlights and shadows, and we can’t wait to see the finished costume.

See a couple more photos after the break.

Some girls dream of marrying a prince and it looks like Blaine Gibson always dreamed of marrying a princess. He set about making his dreams a reality recently at Walt Disney World when he got down on one knee and proposed to the Disney princesses (and a fairy). Ariel, Cinderella, and even Jasmine were on the list, despite Aladdin’s disapproval.

He proposed to a villain too. See the pics after the break to find out who it is.
