star trek leia

There’s lots of playful (and not so playful) talk about the battle between Star Trek and Star Wars and which is better, but Malicous Cosplay has managed to bring the worlds together in one awesome cosplay.

It’s pretty much a cosplay Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup – two great fandoms that cosplay great together when Princess Leia is imagined as a Starfleet officer from classic Star Trek. Ensign Organa in her classic white dress and hairstyle, wields a phaser and a blaster because you can never have too much firepower.

Chewie reimagined as a Tribble is especially awesome.

Head after the break to see more.

Things have changed a lot since the ’70s, and the costumes worn by Electra Woman and Dyna Girl are no exception. The original Sid and Marty Krofft series had the pair in red and yellow spandex with capes, but Grace Helbig and Hanna Hart get much better outfits in the upcoming Legendary webseries. This new costumes are fantastic!

See the original costumes for comparison after the break.

So, you want an Apple Watch but you don’t have the cash. Hiné Mizushima has got you covered with this do-it-yourself felt version. It’s a simple blue strap with a watch face made up of brightly colored buttons. I bet Steve Jobs would have loved this thing.

Robert Downey Jr. continues to prove that he is an awesome human being in this video where he presents a 7-year-old boy with an Iron Man prosthetic arm. It’s all set up so that Alex, who was born with a partial right arm, has no idea what’s about to happen. He walks into the room and there’s Downey in character as Tony Stark. Imagine how you would react to that.

Then, he opens up two Stark Industries cases to reveal his Iron Man arm and one made with the help of Microsoft One Note’s Collective Project and Limbitless Solutions, a group led by Albert Manero who is an engineering doctoral student at University of Central Florida. Their goal is to provide affordable bionic, 3D limbs to those in need.

Naturally, Downey is a great sport, even wise-cracking that the boy’s limb is better since Downey’s has a malfunctioning light and Alex’s works just fine.

new wonder woman edit

Wonder Woman is getting another new costume this June in Wonder Woman #41 and the booty shorts and bustier have given way to a jacket and pants. She’s also rocking more of an armored look, including wristblade gauntlets that hint at a more violent portrayal of the character.

It feels a little Lady Sif from the waist up, which I think is cool. I’m not 100% sold on the loincloth, but the boots are slammin’.

Get a better look after the break.
