anna and elsa dress

Hot Topic is having a very good time with their costume dresses these days and they’ve just debuted new Disney versions. You can choose Elsa and Anna from Frozen or you can go old school Disney with Aurora, Snow White, and Belle.

Now that I think about it, I bet an Esmerelda would look super cute.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

When I think of the holidays, I think of Street Fighter. Don’t you? If not, maybe this tacky yet wonderful ugly Christmas sweater will change your mind. The official Capcom product sounds like it is truly a knitted sweater too: “design knitted, not printed.” No faux-sweater sweatshirt business happening here. Merry Christmas! Now, fight!

See a couple more photos of this amazing sweater after the break.

That’s not Santa. It’s Darth Vader pulling a sleigh piloted by AT-ATs and he’s probably going drop some explosive gifts on your neighborhood.

Part of me hopes there’s a Rebel version with Yoda piloting X-Wings, because a Yoda Santa would be pretty epic.

On a side note, that is a moon! Definitely should have been a Death Star.

The shirt comes in sizes small through 3X and it’s in stock now.

marvel strapless

The weather may be getting cooler, but there’s no law against layering so you can still wear this Marvel Collage Spaghetti Strap Dress.

Lots of your favorite Marvel heroes in a cool retro style? I dig it for sure.

It looks like a sweater, but it’s actually a t-shirt designed to look like an ugly Christmas sweater. Needless to say, it’s perfect for the Pokemon fan in your life. Christmas, I choose you!

blizzcon cosplay boom

The cosplay of BlizzCon is nothing short of astounding. I’ve been looking at pictures from the event for days, and I’m still seeing different but equally impressive ensembles. There’s so much armor! Many fantastic costumes are on display in Cosplay Boom’s video from the convention. They do more than just capture images of the cosplayers though. They talk to them about their history with games like World of Warcraft and Diablo and uncover the reasons why they cosplay.

Watch the video after the break.

After a long day of robbing banks and beating up Gotham’s finest with a certain Mr. J, you’d probably like to head back home and slip into a comfy pair of pjs, right? If so, I’d recommend trying out this Harley Quinn Ladies’ Pajama Set. They feature an elastic waistband and cuffs along with glittery diamonds. I’m not sure if they fit the asylum dress code, so that might be an issue.

As you could probably guess by their previous Zoidberg cosplay, the guys at Tested are big fans of Futurama. They recently made a crazy-detailed cosplay mash of Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, and I have to say that it’s unnervingly realistic. We recently featured a picture of this cosplay, but now we know were it came from—and there’s video!

You can watch the entire process of making the mask after the break.
