After seeing John Jiao’s photos of all the insanely awesome cosplay costumes from this year’s New York Comic-Con, I’m starting to think I missed out.
Take a look his collection of gorgeous photos in the gallery after the break…
Ready to gear up and face monsters like the humans in Attack on Titan? Then you’ll need your own set of Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear. It comes with all sorts of handy tools like grapple-hooks and a propeller, and the gear has the added bonus of looking cool. Movic has a life-size replica available for pre-order, and the prop looks pretty spot-on.
It’s made from aluminum, resin, and silicone. It’s not for the weak since it weighs 22 pounds, but you could probably wear it with your Titans cosplay for a little while – at least long enough for photos. The gear will be ready to ship in Japan in January.

You’ll be ready for Halloween with this Kragle costume from The Lego Movie. It all starts with a couple of inexpensive shower curtains that form the bulk of the costume. Then it’s just a matter of tracing out the letters and gluing them to the shower curtain once it’s formed into a tube. Cheap and clever…just like we like it.

Courtney Coulson and Luke Milton are taking costume photography to a new level. Their Cosplay Couture project merges cosplay and fashion photography with stunning results. They focus more on the “couture construction technique” rather than one hundred percent accuracy, and the effort means they’ve come up with designs that are both creative and impressive.
They’ve tackled costumes from comic books, shows such as Doctor Who, and movies like The Lone Ranger. They offer insight on the costume and the shoot with each of their posts, and I highly recommend following them on Tumblr.

Most Disney princesses may seem timid and meek, but I bet if you gave them skates and put them into a roller derby arena, they’d let all of their aggressions out on the rink. Well, they’d do that after they learned how to skate.

It can be hard to resist the temptation of putting your cat into a costume for Halloween. They just look so cute! If your feline will tolerate being dressed up, Pusheen the Cat has several suggestions for costumes and shared them in gif form. You can go for the obvious Nyan cat or you can just wrap your cat in a blanket and call him or her a burrito. It couldn’t be easier.

It’s October and time is running short to create the perfect costume. Don’t worry though, because Digital Dudz has you covered with a line of clothing and masks that are super clever. They feature special pockets that will hold your smartphone. All you do to make them amazing is download an app either for iOS or Android and then insert the phone into the built-in pocket for instant Halloween fun.

Cosplayers come from all walks of life, and Buzzfeed’s latest photo collection definitely drives that point home. They asked a random selection of cosplayers at the New York Comic Con to reveal what their day jobs are, and the answers they received really shows that anyone (yes, even your banker or a neuroscientist) can get into cosplaying.
