Anakin and Padme 1

You never know what sort of magic you’ll see at Star Wars Weekends. The event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios brings together fans, and Disney always provides a plethora of costume Star Wars characters for attendees to interact with – including Anakin Skywalker.

Tumblr user My Disney Daze dressed her daughter in a Padmé Amidala costume and captured her talking to Anakin Skywalker. The pictures melt my heart into a puddle. It looks like they’re having the best conversation.

This one-piece Wonder Woman bathing suit will let you channel your inner superhero at the beach this summer. It’s an 80/20 nylon/spandex blend with a 100% polyester lining and an over the shoulder design. Tiara, lasso, and bracelets not included, but they’d really mess up your tan lines anyway.

These fantastic shoes and helmets are the work of design firm Mathery Studio who created them for the National Gallery of Victoria. The idea was to encourage kids to be creative by letting them put on the helmets and shoes and create their own art on the floors, walls, and pretty much everywhere they could reach. Unfortunately, they’re not made in adult sizes and aren’t available for sale—but it’s a brilliant idea.

Sansa stark 1

Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones, “The Mountain and the Viper,” had some riveting moments. Besides the obvious one, Sansa Stark put on some new threads. While a character changing her outfit isn’t a big deal, it matters in this case. Sansa’s attractive black gown and dyed hair is a symbol that she’s becoming stronger and taking an active role in shaping her own destiny.

It’s only a matter of time before we see cosplayers replicate the gorgeous gown, and these photos will help. The black fabric appears heavy and features shimmery feather accents – they’re almost crow-like. Her necklace is a statement piece. I’m guessing she raided her aunt’s closet for the attire, and she chose well.

See some details after the break.

This beautifully done cosplay features Yuki Godbless of Thailand as Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan. The pictures were taken by JiakiDarkness who also made her weapons. Once the photoshoot was over, Yuki did all her own editing to come up with these incredible finished images.

You can buy anything online, including a Russian spacesuit, but what to do with it once it arrives? Photographer Tim Dodd bought one such spacesuit and he put it to good use in a series of pictures called “Everyday Astronaut.” Basically, the series captures him doing “everyday stuff” wearing the spacesuit. He goes grocery shopping for Tang, mows the lawn on his Segway, and even eats some astronaut ice cream.

Fans of Jack Kirby will love Wendi Freeman’s latest tattoo. The host of the Double Page Spread podcast got this tat of a “Mother Box” from Kirby’s “Fourth World” comics.

Brian Stringer of Ink Fusion Tattoos did this tattoo for Freeman during C2E2. Great stuff, Wendi!

rule 63 powergirl 1

Over the past five years, it seems like the number of women cosplaying as male characters has been increasing. Though men have also been doing gender-swapped cosplay, I’ve seen more and more examples lately, and I love it. Test Subject B Cosplay wore his Power Girl ensemble at FanimeCon recently and rocked it. I think he gets extra points for leaving the trademark chest window in the costume.

Remember the bonus “car breaking” level in Street Fighter? Well, this unisex T-shirt offers up a “wax on, wax off” take on that famous stage that features far fewer broken fenders. Hey, sometimes even master martial artists have to wash their cars too.
