By now you know that Adam Savage loves cosplay—especially incognito cosplay at conventions.
This year he really outdid himself with The Revenant Bear. It even has a Leo prop. Check out the costume on the floor of SDCC in the video below. [click to continue…]

There’s a new Godzilla movie coming to Japan, and so Reebok and MegaHouse have unveiled a couple of sneakers based on the iconic movie monster. The two new designs are the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.GODZILLA and the Reebok CLASSIC × MegaHouse Instapump Fury Road Ver.ShinGodzilla, and they featured a number of nifty little touches and nods to the 63-year-old franchise.
The Ver.GODZILLA version takes its design cues from the original movie monster, with a sleek black texture reminiscent of ol’ ‘Zilly himself, while the Ver.ShinGodzilla pulls from the upcoming movie and features glow-in-the-dark soles. Nice! Check out more product photos below. [click to continue…]
While the clothing options for comic book loving women have gotten better over the years, I figure you can never have too many choices or too many pairs of leggings.
In that spirit, I present Etsy seller Exotica Leggings.
Exotica Leggings has lots of different styles. Just be aware that they’re one size, so they may not be for everyone. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
There were quite a few Harley Quinn cosplays at SDCC this year (naturally), but one of those Harleys was the voice of Harley herself, Tara Strong.
Her cosplay game was, ahem…strong. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Personally, I’ve never been a fan of dress codes but I understand why companies have them. That said, dress codes can be arbitrary and confusing in what they will and will not allow.
In the case of cosplayer June J Rivas, her boss took issue with the way she chose to wear her hair. Ponytail? Unprofessional. Pigtails? Unprofessional. Scarf? You got it. Unprofessional.
The issue, however, was that the company had no dress code beyond “Just be clean and pressed.”, which Rivas pointed out when she filed a complaint. Her boss’ reaction was to, you guessed it, issue a memo with a new dress code that included, “no straps, hats, sandals, cleavage, back out, lace, and even (and I quote) cultural head wraps”.
Rivas has filed a complaint with the EEOC and she’s found a way to cleverly adhere to the dress code while her case is pending: cosplay.
Each day, she wears a new cosplay that likely drives her boss nuts but isn’t technically actionable. I think I’m in love with this woman. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
The northern part of SDCC apparently.

The legendary LeeAnna Vamp cosplayed as Dark Helmet at SDCC, and the costume was clearly designed with hot temperatures in mind. It’s ventilated, and the giant helmet is capable of blocking out the sun for several people at once. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
It’s always fun when a famous person walks the floor incognito at a convention. This is especially true when you discover that you took a picture with them.
So if you took a picture with a dude in a Suicide Squad t-shirt and a Guy Fawkes mask, that may have been Henry Cavill. Will Smith knows what I’m talking about. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]
I personally demand you sing the Firefly theme song as you walk around in these Firefly Serenity Ship oversized plush slippers.
Or just quote dialogue from the show…or movie. They’re the smoothest ride to Boros for anyone can pay.
These are so weirdly awesome—not to mention a better option than cutting footholes in the Firefly Serenity Plush.
