Ever wonder what it would be like to be a Pokémon? Well, you might be saying to yourself, “Of course. But I’m an adult. I have bills to pay.”

Well, I say you take your hard-earned dough an invest it in one of these adult-sized Mega Charizard Y capes that only cost about 3,600 Yen ($30). Then, you can finally know what it feels like to be a fire-breathing Pokémon! Well, sort of….

The cape will be available for purchase at the Tokyo Mega Pokémon Centre in Japan (it opens on Dec. 12). The Centre is one giant Pokéstore, and you can buy all sorts of Poké stuff there, including a 2,000 Yen (roughly $17) mini-Charizard plushie version of the cape. Yeah, I think I need to start planning a vacation to Japan ASAP.

Check out the plushie cape after the break…

There is plenty of Star Trek cosplay at your average convention, but this is cleverer than most. CaptCash chose to dress as a redshirt who is on an away mission at Comic-Con. He staged every single one as though he was in dire straits from being eaten by a dragon to being run over by a truck. As much as the convention wanted to kill him, he managed to survive every ordeal. Next year he might not be so lucky.

That’s right—you can turn yourself into HAL 9000 with some simple supplies like cardboard, paint, scissors, glue, and a tablet for the red eye effect.

robe harley quinn 1

The options for nightwear just keep getting geekier. There are enough costume robes these days that you could curl up in a different one every day for a month. Kinda cool, no? ThinkGeek has three new options for your closet: Batman, Harley Quinn, and a Walking Dead sheriff robe. Each design features appropriate touches: Batman ears, Harley Quinn’s jester hat, and fake gashes. Plus, they’re all made from polyester.

See the Batman and Walking Dead robes after the break.

firefly star wars guns

These awesome guns belong to Jordan Calderon.

Yep, he’s got Captain Malcolm Reynold’s trusty pistol on his left arm and Han Solo’s blaster on his right (the flags are a nice touch). The tattoo was done by Noska at Southside Tattoo ATX.

Those are pretty shiny, Jordan, I gotta say!

Cosplaying kids are always adorable, but this little girl is just stunning. She’s La Muerte from The Book of Life and her Mom didn’t miss a detail while making her costume. It’s covered with candles, skulls, and loads of flowers. Plus, the awesomeness of her makeup is off the charts.

She’s currently in a costume contest at OurKids Magazine so if you’re as impressed as we are, head on over and give her your vote.

gcrollergirls

Artist Tom Kurzanski imagines DC Comics villainesses Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy as Derby Girls in these awesome t-shirts.

As Kurzanski himself noted about the designs:

“What better way to portray strong female characters than the world where femininity and power go hand-in-hand? Roller Derby.”

The GC Rollergirls are already looking strong with Criminal Miss Conduct and Bad Seed on the roster. I’m thinking they might win it all.

Head after the break for more images.

This badass corset is the work of fashion designer Rei Narumiya who is also a photographer. She’s designed incredible military-inspired pieces that could be the foundation to your next cosplay. There’s a corset, skirt, and pouch which are each sold separately and look fantastic when worn together. She initially just made these as prototypes, but they were so well-received that they are now being made-to-order for each customer. The weapons are just props, but they give you an idea of the possibilities.

1e2e_back_to_the_future_flux_capacitor_watch

Time traveling isn’t a reality just yet, but I feel like we’re getting closer because a Flux Capacitor watch exists. ThinkGeek is offering a digital watch modeled on Doc Brown’s gadget from Back to the Future and it tells the time and date using Flux Capacitor lights and time circuit LED. Here’s how it breaks down:

Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats)

When you’re tired of being in the moment, switch to the “Time Travel” mode and the time circuit will display a random date. The only problem is that you’ll have to run 88mph to make it work.

See what it looks like on the wrist after the break.

Remember that pic we posted of LeVar Purrton, the kitty cat that was all dressed up to look like Star Trek’s Geordi La Forge? Well, it looks like there are now two adorably cute, VISOR-wearing pets in the Starfleet now.

Check out Corgi La Forge, who’s depicted above hanging out on the beach after taking a well-deserved break from barking at Klingons all day.
