Reliving the fashion disasters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer got me thinking about why in God’s name anyone would wear a mushroom shirt, sure (I’ve yet to figure that one out), but also about how fashion of our beloved geeky shows changes from season to season. To a large extent that change is a result of shifting trends in the real world, sure, but there’s also something to be said for character development and its impact on sartorial stylings.

For examples, look no further than…

If you listen to Pink Floyd’s 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon, eleven times in a row and you sing all of the lyrics to “Us and Them” while staring into a mirror, and if the stars are in perfect alignment, it’s entirely possible to summon a unicorn. Then, and only then, will you truly grasp what it means to witness “The Dark Side of the Unicorn.” You have been warned.

The last time we featured one of these adorable charm necklaces by The Gorgonist, the Cosplay Girls were dressed as the Death Star and the Millennium Falcon. This time around, they battle as the TARDIS and a Dalek and it’s just as cute.

The charms are both 1.5 inches, and the necklaces are between 15-18 inches, but you can request different sizes as needed. She’s got a lot of cuteness going on in her shop, so it’s definitely worth a look.

unite the seven

Late last night Zack Snyder dropped the first pic of Jason Momoa in full Aquaman attire ahead of his appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The “Unite the Seven” tagline likely refers to both the seven seas and the seven members of the Justice League.

Renato García was a Puerto Rican boxer who spent much of the last few weeks of his life dressed in a Green Lantern costume. After his passing, his family decided to dress him in the costume one last time and stand him up at the wake as a tribute to how they viewed him as a hero in real life. His sister, Milagros García, told Primera Hora in a translated interview:

He was always very helpful. He was left anyone wanting. Never say no. You beckoned and he was always there. …I was going to a regular funeral for him, but the neighbors and the community had this idea. I know he would have liked it.

It wasn’t just family, but the community who also felt he was a hero.

Lots of mourners, relatives, friends and residents of the village of San José in Río Piedras, wore shirts alluding to the famous character, as a symbol of mourning on the death of Renato, who attributed all attractive qualities and virtues. Neighbors said that when Renato found a Green Lantern costume in the trash can and decided to dress and embody the character, nobody scoffed at him, and were sympathetic when they out found what he did.
