Aside from the inspirational speeches and proud moment of receiving that college diploma, most graduation ceremonies as we know it are super snore fests. But Kyoto University and Kyoto City University of the Arts let their pre-alumni have fun with cosplay. And why not? Students work their butts off for four (or more) years and this moment should be fun.

The 8-bit pixel style is awesome for geek gear, and Etsy shop The Pixel Bar even lets you create your own designs.

After you select a bag type (messenger or backpack) you can request your favorite characters from Marvel to Disney to Minecraft to be pixelated in silicon blocks which are affixed to the silicon panel.

Or you can create your own character using a template of the purchased bag. The template will let you place each pixel on the board and tally up how many blocks you will need to purchase. You could have a different design to match your fandom every week.

Check out some bag styles and pixel designs below.

Izzy wanted to go see Cinderella in her princess dress, but she was a little nervous to dress-up alone. She thought it might be nice if her uncle, actor Jesse Nagy, dressed up with her. He happily obliged putting on his best princess duds for the occasion. He is officially the best uncle ever.
