This Zerg Hydralisk from StarCraft is chasing people around the Otakuthon in Montréal, Canada like “I just wanna be friends.”

I can’t imagine walking around in this snake-like costume would be easy, but creator Dadboy did an impressive job fabricating the Zerg with an extra-creep factor.

Check out some images from the awesome build and a video after the break.

The First Order has a hockey team now. You’ve been drafted.

Made in youth sizes, adult sizes XS to 5XL, and even goalie sizes, each jersey can be customized with the name and number of your choice. Honestly, the display one is a Phasma jersey and it looks pretty good to me. She would definitely be team Captain.

Artist Argenis Pinal uses only makeup to transform himself into both male and female superheroes. His ability to completely disappear into the character is beyond impressive.

Matthew Chalker recently proposed to his photographer girlfriend in a clever way: he spent 60 hours constructing a customized mechanical iris aperture for the engagement ring.

She said “yes” of course!

Chalker used this Instructables plan as the basis for his box, but he tweaked it to fit his needs. Check out how it came together in the gallery after the break…

Here’s some awesome news for fans of Bitch Planet and comfortable legwear. Kelly Sue Deconnick has partnered with Bombsheller to create a pair of #Non-Compliant leggings in sizes XS to 6XL (a full size sheet can be seen here).

This collaboration is also a beta test to gauge interest for additional plus-sized fashions from Bombsheller. As Deconnick says, “These are the only items BOMBSHELLER is offering the extended size range on at the moment, so if you want to see more of this kind of thing, ORDER and SHARE INFO.”

As a plus sized lady, my favorite part about this whole thing is how Bombsheller broke it down on their site.

“Compared to the rest of the fashion industry, Bombsheller is non compliant. We believe you should wear what you want, not what you’re told. Get your girl gang together and celebrate spandex for all bodies.”

Kristin of SuperSpaceChick is a lucky lady. She was treated to an elaborate week-long Harry Potter-themed engagement that started with an unexpected letter from Minerva McGonagall stating that she had been accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The letter arrived on official Hogwarts letterhead, sealed with wax, and even had owl scratch marks from travel. Kristin suspected her boyfriend Andrew Gallagher, a talented graphic designer, was behind the wonderful letter but the reason behind it was a mystery. All she knew was that additional instructions would follow.

For the next seven days,  Kristin received more letters from characters at Hogwarts with exciting clues and wonderful presents. The magical adventure led the couple to The Strand bookstore in NYC where Andrew got down on one knee and presented Kristin with a ring in a custom made snitch ring box. Of course she said yes! Duh!

Check out some of the amazing work that went into the week-long Harry Potter engagement story after the break.
