robot dinosaur costume

The annual E3 trade show in Los Angeles, CA is one of the biggest events of the year for the games industry, and developers want their upcoming titles to stand out. Over the years a number of different methods have been employed to attract the gaze of passers-by, but the new bar was set by Sony with this Watcher cosplay to promote Horizon Zero Dawn.

It’s the work of effects studio Spectral Motion, who have been involved with films such as X-Men: The Last Stand, Looper and Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Check out the beastie in action in the videos below. It’s a perfect example of what can happen when a big Hollywood effects studio makes a cosplay designed to wow audiences. [click to continue…]

Eye Style and Japanese cosplayer Nekomu Otogi are teaming up to bring you a line of cat eye contacts that come in a variety of colors.

They’re both cute and creepy—a tough look to pull off.

According to Eye Style, each pair will last about a month of on-and-off wear. Yes, wear these EVERY SINGLE DAY. It would be quite the social experiment. [click to continue…]

Her Universe is adding more fun fashion to their Marvel line in honor of Captain America’s 75th anniversary. The retro collection puts a modern twist on Cap’s 1940s era style with new dresses, blouses, shorts, rompers, tees and more. Cap’s shield design has been subtly incorporated into floral prints, bandana prints and patriotic patterns.

“With the 75th anniversary we were really inspired by the 40’s era and the year that Captain America was created,” said Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein. “We collaborated closely with the Kohl’s and Marvel teams to create the perfect summer collection that evokes the spirit of a girl from the 40’s with a mix of modern day trends.”

bb8 cart top

Apparently, Redditor Ov3rKoalafied asked this lovely Rey cosplayer if she would drag him around on a cart if he made a BB-8 costume.

The joke is on him because she’s going to trade him for rations at that sandwich shop. After all, you work up an appetite at cons and the food ain’t cheap.

The following video is YouTuber pompberry’s top 20 submission for the NYX Face Awards, which has an anime theme in this round. Pompberry chose Totoro for her stop motion makeup project, and we think she has a damn good chance of advancing. As you’ll see, even earthquakes couldn’t stand in her way. [click to continue…]

Cosplayer Casey Renee loves both Disney and the study of history, which is why she describes her Rococo Belle cosplay as “a dream project”. She writes:

Back in February I finished a dream project of mine. Rococo Belle is a historically accurate version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I narrowed the time period down to the 1750s in France and used popular silhouettes such as the boufant wig and the watteau train to construct this beast of a project. It took over 300 hours to make the 9 garments (including socks and shoes) complete with over 2000 beads and pearls. The entire garment weighs 22 pounds with 30 yards of fabric and a wig that Cogsworth (which I also constructed) sits upon.

She says the costume allows her to share her love for Disney and history with children who tend to follow her around.

I can see why! Check out more pics of the costume below. [click to continue…]

When most dads say they treat their daughters like a princess, they mean it figuratively and as a declaration of love. In the case of 32-year-old fashion designer Nephi Garcia, it’s literal.

Garcia uses his designing skills to make the most perfect little Disney princess costumes ever. Some of them even transform!

Garcia will even make one for you—but don’t expect them to come cheap. He uses high quality materials and his costumes are complex, so children’s costumes start at $600 and his adult costumes start at $1,800. But, as you’ll see in the images and videos below, you’ll get what you pay for.

I have a feeling he’s going to be a very busy daddy. [click to continue…]
