alexstraza edit

The first time I leveled a character in World Of Warcraft and met Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, Queen of the Dragons, I was honestly spellbound. There was something about her that just….captivated me. I had the exact same feeling when I saw this Alexstrasza cosplay by Narga-Lifestream. The costume, the attitude, the photography—it all comes together in a way that makes the Queen Of Dragons come to life.

black widow long sleeve dress

ThinkGeek has unveiled an exclusive long sleeve Black Widow dress that’s 94% cotton, 6% spandex and 100% awesome. Unfortunately, it’s not suitable for battle and it will definitely draw attention. Honestly, I don’t know what S.H.I.E.L.D was thinking with this design.

han solo boots

As you can see, we’re not talking about Han Solo’s equestrian-style boots for cosplay. These clever and cute boots are actually dressed like Han Solo.

The process is actually pretty simple, and you only need some basic materials to get the job done.

First off, this is one hell of a combo. Isn’t that Dragon Draper necklace awesome? You can get them in several different colors from Art by Aelia.

Second, that Choco/Mog tattoo! It’s a fantastic addition to the body art on our friend EmmaLee (aka Feyith) who also sent us pics of her amazing Firefly tattoo earlier this year.

When Kelsey Jenkins’ boyfriend proposed at SLCC, he made sure to do it during her photo op with Hayley Atwell and Chris Evans. Talk about raising the bar.

The looks on Hayley and Chris’ faces are just priceless and, in case you were wondering, Kelsey said yes.

Check out Kelsey and Hayley’s tweets after the break.

carlotta 3

Australian cosplayer Major Sam owned the Sydney Oz Comic Con thanks to an incredible Carlotta cosplay from The Phantom Of The Opera that won her the OZCC Champions of Cosplay award.

The cape took about 60 hours to make and 3,000 plus beads were individually sewn in. Now that’s dedication.

Sam also cosplayed Miss Kitty from The Great Mouse Detective at OZCC, so we included a picture of that cosplay as well, but it’s easy to see why Carlotta won the weekend.

In other words, it’s a bunch of adorbz.

monopoly engagement

Ordinarily, Monopoly tears people apart. This might be the first time the game ever brought people closer together.

Justin Lebon hired wood-worker Mark Becker to create this gorgeous custom Monopoly board as a unique way to propose to his girlfriend Michal Ott. He writes:

The reason I chose a homemade monopoly board is because: A) it’s michals favorite game B) we play on a “Glenmoor monopoly” board I made in high school, and it’s missing pieces :/ it’s fun, but when you pull a chance card that says “go to reading railroad” and nothing on the board matches…. It makes it kinda difficult. Anyways, monopoly board idea is born. All of the spaces have a special meaning to us.

I handed her a pair of loaded dice. They would only allow her to roll a 7. The number she needed to land on Chance. That’s where I put the “will you marry me card” Michal takes the dice. Rolls a 7. Says” Ooh a Seven! 1,2,3,4,5,6,7! Ooh, Chance!…”

She reads the chance card out loud “…Will you marry me?” and said “is this REAL!?” I said ” what else does the card say” … Michal replies “If yes advance to luxury tax” After michal quickly moved her piece to luxury tax I got down on one knee and poured my heart out. I said everything I wanted to say and took my time. It was great. Then I reach down into my pocket and pulled out.. A long Wire key. Michal had gone through a lot at this point and was still trying to put it all together. I asked her if she would marry me. She said yes. I asked if she wanted to see something really cool. She nodded her head up and down. I took the wire key and popped open a secret door underneath the luxury tax.

Check out all the details of the board and the proposal story in the gallery after the break…

Vivid Vision Showcase04

When Canadian-based cosplayer Vicky Lau from Vivid Vision was invited to showcase her cosplays at Western Canada Fashion Week, she became the first designer ever to have cosplay included in the event—we hope she’s just the first of many.

Lau not only made all the cosplays for this showcase, but both the Battle Princess Anna and Heart Seeker Janna cosplays were original designs. I love the Battle Princess Anna and I’d love to see an Elsa version.
