direwolf leggings

We have another entrant in the “makers of very cool leggings” department. These Game Of Thrones inspired leggings by Poprageous are made in Los Angeles and “sweatshop free” according to their site. Poprageous owner Cher also says they’re constantly on the look out for new designs inspired by art and pop culture.

Head after the break for more of the legging designs.

gipsy danger 3

Pacific Rim was released last July, and Jaeger costumes are starting to become more common. The giant mechs obviously take time to assemble, so I predict we’ll see more of them this convention season since people have had months to perfect the costumes. If they look half as good as Nona Neon Cosplay’s Gipsy Danger costume, we’re in for a treat.

She did an incredible job with crafting the armor and painting and aging it to match the film. It looks like she’s been fighting Kaiju for years. From the helmet to the chain sword she crafted from wood and foam – I’m impressed.

See more pics of the costume and the chain sword she made after the break.

let it go

When it comes to Frozen, it seems that fans will never let it go. As we speak, parents are probably engaging in fistfights at toy stores for Elsa dolls. That having been said, this Frozen-inspired shirt is on sale today only for just $11. Grab it while you can!

Maleficent  batwing pullover

There was a point there when I began to despair for Hot Topic because there was absolutely nothing I wanted, but now I’m worried because they have so much stuff I want that they’re going to make me broke!

They’ve already created some gorgeous Disney items, but this time they’ve partnered with Disney on a Maleficent clothing line that is more about fashion inspired by the movie than branded merchandise and, I have to say, I like it. Especially the Batwing pullover hoodie.

Lots of pictures after the break.

fiber optic dress 1

Nothing brightens a design like fiber optics, and Instructables user Natalina put that theory to the test. She created a gorgeous dress that swings and glows like the most elegant jellyfish ever. The fiber optic whip she used has one central light source, and she designed the dress to include a pouch for it on the back of the dress. Perfect.

In her tutorial, Natalina goes into detailed explanations about the fiber optics, the pattern and sewing of the dress, and making it all work together. Since the result is so stunning, I have no doubt others will bookmark the instructions and put making the dress on their to-do list.

See the enchanting dress in action in the video after the break.

zelda hoodie 2

You can never own too many hoodies. The lightweight jackets are ideal for so many seasons and climates. Any time you need to build up layers, turn to a hoodie. This Legend of Zelda design from Gamer Heaven was made for going on adventures. It will keep you warm and cozy on a hike in the woods, by the ocean, or on the way to Lake Hylia. I love the Hylian crest on the back and the chevron patterns on the sleeves.

Pre-order now to receive the hoodie near the end of May.

Look at the front of the hoodie after the break.

If Loki’s helmet is going to be printed on leggings, it’s only appropriate for it to be printed on gold lamé. These shiny leggings from WeLoveFine are made from spandex and are therefore super stretchy. Though they’d work great with Loki t-shirts, they also lend themselves to everyday cosplay ensembles. Pair them with a hunter green tank top or tunic to embody the trickster.

The movie doesn’t arrive in theaters until August 1st but you can already get your hands on a replica of the jacket worn by actor Chris Pratt in his role as Star Lord. It’s a screen accurate replica made of red leather with a viscose lining, embossed accents, two inside pockets and an erect collar. It’ll look perfect when you line up for that midnight showing.
