sailor deadpool

We are huge fans of Darling Army’s cosplay pinafores and kimono dresses, and we love that she’s cosplaying as Sailor Deadpool at SDCC this year. Brilliant!

Thanks for the tip Amanda!

assassins creed parkour

With the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity this October, Ubisoft and Youtuber Devin Supertramp got together to make a little parkour video inspired by the game which, while having no women (yeah, I’m a bit miffed) has some pretty awesome moves.

Plus, it’s shot in Paris. How can I ever not like that? Plus it’s shot in 4K so make sure to crank it up.

The Parkour/Free-running stunts are performed by Ronnie Shalvis and the French FreeRun Family.

Check it out after the break.

“Oh, shiny!” If there’s one sci-fi engineering lady that stole my heart, it’s Kaylee from Firefly. She was always so positive, even when Reavers were inbound. So, if you’d like to show off a little Kaylee positivity, you might want to pick up this “shiny” Firefly T-shirt. As you can see, the whole crew (even Vera!) spells out Kaylee’s favorite saying, and there’s also a unisex tank version too.

Check out a pic of the unisex tank as well as a close-up of the front of the shirt after the break…

Bathing carries a lot of cultural significance in Japan. In fact, it’s pretty common for families to take baths together. With that said, it makes sense that this dad wanted to make bath time a little more fun by doing a bit of cosplay. His pictures have been popping up on a number of Chinese websites, and it looks like they originated from a social networking site called Douban. The user, who goes by Chihiro and lives in Fukuoka, Japan, has posted a ton of goofy pictures online. Take a look at some of our favorites after the break…

deadpool cupcakes

Recently a guy dressed as a Stormtrooper put a street on lockdown thanks to citizens that weren’t familiar with Star Wars. This time, commuters in Australia who are clearly not comic book fans called the cops on a Deadpool cosplayer named Reuben Rose who was on his way to a charity event.

Granted, he was openly carrying (plastic) swords, and firearms which was probably not the best idea in this day and age, but he was also carrying cupcakes—which is where this story gets amusing.

Thankfully, he was not charged with any crime and was soon on his way to work where he was trying to raise money for Bear Cottage at Manly, a hospice for children.

Check out a video of Deadpool dancing on the train after the break…

HU fashion show 12

Her Universe brought geeky haute couture to San Diego Comic-Con last night with its first ever fashion show. Hosted at a room in the Hyatt by Her Universe, Hot Topic, and Nerdist, the event showcased work from both amateur and professional designers and took a moment to show off new items in the Her Universe collection – including a peek at apparel from their Studio Ghibli partnership.

The designers entered a contest online with a chance to participate in the fashion show and win the opportunity to work with Her Universe and Hot Topic to design a line of geek chic apparel. There were 36 designers, and they didn’t kid around. There were dresses and ensembles based on characters such as Marty McFly, Doctor Doom, Death, Kara Thrace, Loki, and so many more. Some outfits incorporated LEDs and impressive transformations, and more than a few of them included dangerous looking high heels. I was floored by the creativity on display.

There were a dazzling array of haute couture designs, and it was lovely to see geek apparel get fashion week treatment. I’ve never been to a show like this, but the runway and sea of blinking flashes from cameras looked just like what I’ve seen on television. I think these designs were much cooler than most (with the possible exception of the Rodarte Star Wars dresses).

The Evil Queen and Marty McFly took home top prizes. Designer Andrew MacLaine created a look based on Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time. The dress changed from an everyday look to a stunning black ensemble. The transformation made the crowd go wild. Amy Beth Christenson came up with a rocking design that captured the essence of Back to the Future; it looked futuristic and awesome – the crowd oohed and aahed when the ensemble made its entrance onto the runway.

See several hot looks from the runway after the break.

Holy hell, this shirt is disturbingly hilarious!

It seems to be available as a transfer from a store called Bang-On.

I’ve never been much of a Magic fan, but after seeing cosplayer Cspranklerun’s remarkable Elspeth costume, I’m starting to think that a card series that features a tough, spear-wielding warrior lady must be worth checking out again.

Cosplayer: Cspranklerun

Photographer: Indiglue

Check out two more pictures after the break…

mark hamill beard

We’ve seen (and approved of) the older Luke Skywalker fan art, and it looks as though Mark Hamill will be sporting an even bushier beard in Star Wars VII if his appearance at the UK premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy is anything to go by. He’s right in the middle of filming at the moment, so this is likely a glimpse at his on-screen look.

The beard seems to support rumors that Luke will become something of a reclusive hermit in the new film much like Obi-Wan was.

her universe ghibli

During the Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con, Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe revealed a new line of clothing featuring characters from Studio Ghibli! She teased the team-up on Instagram recently and confirmed it by donning a haute couture Totoro dress at the fashion show.

Models wore items from the new Ghibli including tank tops and a Totoro cosplay dress. The Studio Ghibli items will be available exclusively at Hot Topic beginning this holiday season, and there will be designs for both men and women. My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service will be the first titles in the collection, but others will follow.

UPDATE: A couple of photos of the collection from the fashion show are after the break…
