GuardiansCosmeticsCollage

We just can’t get enough of the Guardians of The Galaxy, so imagine our excitement when we discovered this new makeup collection inspired by the quirky team of heroes! The line was created by Geek Chic Cosmetics who named it rather appropriately “Awesome Mix.” It features six eyeshadows inspired by the film. The colors include “I Am Groot”, “Deadliest Woman In The Universe”, and “My Prince, My Starlord”. In these colors we can all save the universe and look good doing it too!

Mystique costume

I like when people put a lot of time and planning into their Halloween costumes, and Redditor drbonedaddy and his girlfriend went all out. He became Gambit, and she put together a rather awesome Mystique costume. She even dyed her contacts! Here’s more info about the build:

Wasn’t easy at all. The spandex suit had to first be landmarked, then painted. Each side took three to four hours and had to be allowed to dry overnight. Applying the latex for the scales on her face and painting it took two to three hours as well. She dyed her hair for the costume which was another hour. So in total it was roughly a 10 hour process over the course of a few days. I’m sure there are some very intricate costumes posted on here, but it really was a painstaking process to make it come together

shoes - star wars

Even though some shoe companies produce rad fandom-themed shoes, your best bet for getting a unique pair of kicks is heading to Etsy and purchasing from a shop like Eclectic Goods. The shop’s owners, Jaquan and Nicole Robinson, paint Converse shoes with characters from franchises such as Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, and Firefly. They work in a lot of detail and nail the likenesses of the characters they paint.

The shoes are made to order, and turnaround time is 3-5 weeks.

Check out more of Eclectic Goods’ work after the break.

Her Universe Star Wars Rebels merch 2

Star Wars Rebels has only been on the air about a month, but I’m already prepared to join the ranks of the Ghost crew. Since that’s not quite possible, I’ll just support them from this side of the galaxy by wearing new rebellious designs from Her Universe. The long sleeve tee features Sabine Wren’s phoenix, and the t-shirt has the Mandalorian’s helmet. Don’t worry – they probably weren’t printed with explosive paint.

See the other design and the youth sizes after the break.

beardawesome

You may be proud of your neatly groomed facial hair, but these guys take it to crazy new levels of awesome. They were all competitors in the 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championships (sponsored by Just For Men) which were held last Saturday in Portland, Oregon. Over 300 people competed in 18 different categories that involved more than just having a ton of hair on your face.

OregonLive spoke with event organizer Phil Olsen who said they were looking for facial hair that “best enhances their overall appearance, style and personality.” If these pictures are any indicator, personalities ranged from soldiers to adventurers to Gandalf.

Game Of Bones [Cosplay]

game-of-bones

These costume-wearing doggies are playing The Game Of Bones, which simply requires that they look absolutely adorable. Yay! It looks like they won!

The above set, which is a tribute to Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons, was created by Samantha Watt, Cynthia Martin and Dorothy Barnard of Dallas, Texas. The three ladies worked for nearly two months to create the costumes and the throne. The bones are made from foam and are covered with bondo resin and drywall mud, and then they were painted to look like iron. The dogs participated in a couple of costume contests in Dallas: Bull-O-Ween and Pug-O-Ween, which are held in order to raise support for rescue organizations in the area. Last year, the dogs won both competitions with their Breaking Bad-themed costumes. You can check that award-winning ensemble after the break along with more Game Of Bones pics.

DIY Krang Hat

If you’re not fully committed to making an elaborate Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume like this one, you can cheat and simply craft a Krang hat. Instructables user ashleyjlong made the hat for an art gallery project and then realized it would work well as part of a costume. All you need is pink fleece or an already-made pink fleece beanie, felt, black paint or yarn, glue, stuffing, and basic tools.

Creating Krang’s creepy but cute face is pretty straightforward, and this is definitely a project you can tackle in an evening. So, if you still don’t have any kind of Halloween costume to wear, this is a good last minute idea.

sexy-ebola-containment-suit-8

Today in “reasons I hate humanity”, I present this Sexy Ebola Containment Suit. It’s not to be confused with the photoshopped sexy Ebola costume (which was actually a Breaking Bad costume) that’s been making the rounds on the Internet lately.

Yep. This is a real costume that is actually being sold.

I just…I can’t.

Kevin Smith has shaved his beard. Surprisingly the world has kept on spinning.

Why on Earth would he do this? It’s for upcoming role in his follow-up to Tusk called Yoga Hosers, which features Smith’s daughter and Johnny Depp’s daughter as two young clerks. The deed had to be done for some green screen work and now, we have a beardless Smith. It isa all kinds of not right.

See clean-shaven Kevin Smith after the break if you think you can handle it.

Little Big Barda

It turns out that Big Barda can be adorable and fierce at the same time. Pattie Marcotte of Heroic Girls said Anya wanted to be Big Barda for Halloween this year, and despite the challenges of making the costume, she and her family figured it out. They crafted every part of Anya’s ensemble from the armor to the Mega Rod. The finished outfit is absolutely wonderful.
