This costume t-shirt turns you into the infamous Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D, so you too can save the universe. All you need to add is an eye-patch, some swagger, and a whole lot of attitude and no one will be the wiser.

The latest designs from deviantArtist Sasha feature high-fashion looks based on The Avengers, Studio Ghibli and Rise of the Guardians. She previously made a series of Disney designs that are equally as drool-worthy.

There’s a scene in Thor 2 where Loki briefly takes on the form of Captain America. What we see in the movie is Chris Evans, but in this untouched clip we actually see Tom Hiddleston dressed up as Captain America complete with his signature shield. According to Hiddleston:

“I did an impression of Loki in the Captain America costume, and did the whole performance, and then they showed Chris [Evans] my performance on tape. It’s him doing an impression of me doing an impression of him, and it’s brilliant. Brilliant. I think it’s great.”

I think I’ve become lost somewhere in the meta of who’s doing an impression of who, but either way, it’s a fantastic clip.

A shirt for those who need more than the usual options as a relationship status. You are neither single nor taken, but burdened with glorious purpose. Just you, and Loki, hence his profile as the checkmark.

It’s the perfect thing to wear on Valentine’s Day.

superhero villain gown 5

Seeing superhero and villain costumes transformed into elegant dresses is something I will never tire of. Tumblr user unidentifiedspoon came up with a whole line of stunning looks for the members of The Avengers as well as a few villains – including Loki (how could you leave him out?). Even though we’ve seen similar concepts before, these dress styles are fresh and inventive. They are full of beautiful drapes and folds and definitely capture the essence of each character’s comic book costume. I’m already envisioning cosplayers bringing these to life.

More of the lovely collection after the break.

nerdy nail polish 1

While I wandered the exhibit hall at New York Comic Con, nail polish caught my eye. Even though I don’t paint my fingernails on a regular basis, I can’t resist looking at beautiful polish blends – and Fandom Cosmetics has tons of them. Their line includes a staggering number of fandoms from The Avengers to Lord of the Rings to Once Upon a Time to Supernatural. I had to buy their black and sparkly Impala inspired nail polish called “Dean’s Baby.” Though several of their offerings include glitter, there are lacquers as well.

And if you can’t be bothered with nail polish, they also make vivid eye shadow palettes. I have a feeling I’m going to be purchasing many gifts from them for the holidays.

Dragon Con features some of the most amazing cosplay you’ll see at any convention and this video captures some of the best. It’s actually a tribute to George Pérez that features the heroes of Justice League of America vs The Avengers. There’s every part of cosplay represented from makeup to prosthetics to costuming of every kind, it’s incredible!

suit2

These incredible Avengers swimsuits were all designed by deviantArtist Avant-Geek (Olivia Mears) who was inspired to create them when she couldn’t find swimsuits that fit her style.

It started with Iron Man: Tony Stark is one of my favorite characters, suit or no suit. From there, I couldn’t help but create other characters: A slightly retro Captain America suit, an hourglass bikini for Black Widow, and Thor complete with a mini-cape! I managed to restrain myself from making more, such as Hulk. That probably would not be safe for work, haha! All of the suits are made from swimwear spandex. I have plans to make more, but from DC and Star Wars this time.

Although the suits are something new, Mears has a long history of creating gorgeous cosplay covering everything from movies to video games.

Mermaid Avengers

This year marked the 30th anniversary of the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Yes, it is a brilliant idea for a parade. You can spot lots of fishtails and glitter and shells and also superheroes! The Mermaid Avengers took to the street with fins and awesomeness. My favorite part is Mer-Iron Man’s double arc reactors.
