We’ve featured cosplay and fashion inspired by the work of Hanna Alexander in the past, but she posted this pic of her Final Fantasy gals the other day and we felt it was high time we did a post about this amazing illustrator.

As you’ll see in the pictures below, she’s heavily influenced by all things Disney and Mucha. Her designs are also wildly cosplayable. [click to continue…]

We’ve featured the Pokémon Gijinka (humanized) designs of Grumpy Old Bastard Creations in the past, but he’s been hard at work adding to the collection in the months since. In fact, he’s been working on making cosplay props based on the designs. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Well, it looks like Tony got a bit of a weapons upgrade, huh? Mars Studio‘s “Invincible Iron Man” armor design looks like it has enough firepower to take down all of Hydra.

With a bit of paint, clever lighting, photo-editing, and a little imagination, artist Lisha is able to transform her arms into trippy optical illusions.

She noted on Bored Panda that she’s “fascinated by anything weird or unusual.”

Apparently, so are we.

We are all about hair trends on Fashionably Geek, and Ursula Goff has been leading the pack with her innovative designs. I’m always blown away by her work and have kept up with her so I can find about anything new and awesome.

Well, get a load of this.

In a recent blog post, Goff said that while she got a ton of compliments from people who saw her fine art hair series, some people expressed disappointment that she wasn’t actually painting art onto people’s hair. So, Goff decided to give it a shot and look her styling to the next level.

Armed with her hair dye, a hair weft (a thin length of hair), Goff brought Van Gogh, Klimt, Kandinsky, Picasso and more to a new canvas. More pics after the break…

I owe a big “thank you” to artist Kate Goodrich for her exceptional X-Men/Adventure Time mashup. Some of these would make for awesome cosplays. See more after the break…

Photographer and artist Adriano Rodrigues partnered with model Sarah Luke and makeup artist Breeanna Nichols for a photography class project titled “Neon Dream“. Nichols covered Luke’s upper body with black paint, and then added a dash of makeup that reacts to UV light. Once Rodrigues brought out a black light, Luke was basically transformed into a walking-and-talking portrait of the night sky—or maybe a glowing city as seen from above.

These new illustrations by Australian game developer and artist Emre C Deniz are a reminder that princesses can do anything if they just put their minds to it. They can even be Warhammer 40k Space Marines. See more after the break…

Artist Camilla d’Errico’s adventurous pop surrealism has been seen everywhere: from convention halls to private galleries. Where some artists leave droplets that ripple onward to inspire, d’Errico has taken the reigns on where the inspiration from her art is directed by penning books on pop surrealism and encouraging a new generation of female artists to find their place in the world. Some of her biggest fans/clients include the likes of Stan Lee, Scream Queens’ Emma Roberts, Geek & Sundry’s Felicia Day, and legendary author Neil Gaiman to name a few.

Now d’Errico is branching out with a gorgeous eyewear collection in collaboration with Derek Cardigan.

We sat down with the artist to talk about the collection, her books, her inspirations and where things will go from here.
