crusader costume 1

Here’s a crazy idea: how about giving a female character full coverage armor? Diablo III has done just that with their Crusader armor. I’m not sure how functional it is, but it’s not leaving the holy warrior’s midriff or thighs open to attacks. What a novel idea! Cosplayer SpcatsTasha did an incredible job making this costume. It makes her look intimidating and strong and also like she just stepped out of the video game.

super mario cuff 1

Square rhinestones make wonderful pixels – who knew?! Instructables user mactothefuture was aware of the trick and used tons of rhinestones to make a cuff bracelet featuring the question block from Super Mario Bros. She wrote a how-to, and to make your own, you only have to make or purchase a leather cuff and buy tons of rhinestones (okay, like 300 of them). Then you carefully apply them to the cuff with a rhinestone picker. It might be tedious work but just look at the finished product! I love sparkly and geeky combos.

See a few more pics of the rhinestone cuff after the break.

League of Legends fans have to admit that SilentCircus90‘s Jinx cosplay is pretty spot on. Also, JRice Photography deserves some props, as he did an excellent job with the shots and the added effects too.

Check out some more cosplay pics after the break…

ff cosplay 1

Lightning is a fierce opponent, and cosplayer Lyz Brickley has created a spot on replica of her costume – from the rose colored hair and the detailing on her shoulder pauldrons. I would avoid getting on her wrong side.

rockabilly catwoman cosplay

We have a new addition to our growing list of Denis Medri-inspried rockabilly cosplays with this Catwoman cosplay by Breathless-ness.

I’m sure she would have looked amazing perched on a stool at The Derby or The Lava Lounge back in the day.

More lovely pictures after the break.

If you’re planning on doing a few barrel rolls through the Lylat System anytime soon, then you might need this new Star Fox t-shirt by Fangamer to help boost your starfighter skills. Unfortunately, this shirt won’t help you pull any emergency maneuvers. Sorry about that.

Check out a closeup of the shirt after the break…

I’ve seen some pretty wild Attack on Titan cosplay before, but this one by cosplayer and make-up artist Florea Flavia is one of the most stunning.

Check out a quick video of Florea in her makeup after the break…

captain patch-it costume

Costume mishaps are an inevitability. Hot glue fails, threads come unraveled, and fabric rips. You can only carry so many repair supplies. But, if Captain Patch-It is around, you don’t have to sweat it. The helpful hero was spotted at Supanova Pop Culture Expo, and according to his Facebook page, he’s “A lone repairman roaming conventions in a never-ending crusade against cosplay malfunctions and breakages.”

He wears a vest stocked with duct tape, thread, safety pins, bobby pins, scissors, and a hot glue gun among other items. This is an absolutely brilliant idea, and I’m kind of hoping each convention makes their own version of this character to aid cosplayers.

See a couple more pics featuring the hero and his tool kit after the break.

space selfie 1

NASA astronaut Steve Swanson recently posted the first Instagram from space. Yes, even astronauts take selfies (hey, it probably gets boring up there). He’s posed in the International Space Station, and you can see Earth behind him. That’s all awesome, but please note the t-shirt he’s wearing. It features Serenity and says “Shipping & Logistics: Everything’s Shiny.” (A white or silver version of the shirt is available here).

And the Firefly design isn’t the only geeky tee he brought on board; he also snapped a selfie while donning a Star Trek t-shirt with the Klingon Empire symbol. Yes, he is that cool

See the Klingon tee after the break.

Risa of Almost Legit Cosplay tipped us to her adorable Legend Of Zelda Tetra cosplay. She tells us it won best prop and best resemblance and we can definitely see why.

You can see more of this cosplay after the break.
