Sometimes a mask is all you need for a great Halloween costume. This alien mind control mask from The Horror Dome definitely fits the bill. It’s filled with foam so it’s lightweight but will still retain its shape as you go to parties and hand out candy. Add blood and a dirty costume to make it even more frightening.

Kids can make any costume precious. Whether they’re dressed as a hero like Star-Lord or a villain like Thanos, they usually manage to steal the show with their adorableness. Photographer Kjersten Gallagher photographed the little Star-Lord pictured above at Fan Expo Canada, and I love that he has a potted Groot and the headphones. He rules.

Anovos is a high-end prop and costuming company that specializes in producing top-notch replicas of classic outfits from Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek and Star Wars. In the past, the company only carried costumes for women from BSG and Star Trek, but it looks like things are about to change. This month, Anovos released a survey asking customers what kinds of Star Wars outfits they would like to see–especially costumes worn by female characters in the films!

The survey asks for some key info, including gender, size requirements,  and details on the specific outfits from the films (that includes generic uniforms and special costumes) that you would like to see become a reality. There are a lot of outfits listed (Mon Mothma’s dress is even in there), so here’s hoping that some of it actually gets made. After completing the survey, you’ll receive a discount code as a bit of thanks for being involved.

sexy frozen 1

Maybe it’s just that I’m getting older, but it seems like the number of ridiculous “sexy” Halloween costumes increases every year. Nothing is sacred – not even a snowman from an animated Disney film. Yandy has teased a new line of skimpy outfits clearly inspired by Frozen, and the collection includes Anna and Elsa and aven Olaf – as in the singing, cute snowman Olaf. I’m trying to let it go, but I’m shaking my head with sadness.

See the sexy Anna and Elsa-inspired looks after the break.

brienne lightane main

I love a good Game Of Thrones cosplay, but I do find that a lot of ladies tend to cosplay Danaerys and, as much as I love Dany, I think Brienne is one of the most interesting female characters on the show.

So a good Brienne cosplay, like this one by cosplayer Lightane or this one by Galacticat will always get a little extra love from me.

With this Brienne from The Bear and the Maiden Fair cosplay, Lightane gets all of the details perfectly and the photography by Torrance Levon Neal takes it to a whole new level.

Check out a closer look after the break.

It’s rare that we come across cosplay that we haven’t seen before, but this Kvothe ensemble by Ishere Lartnec is something new. The character is from The Kingkiller Chronicle, a fantastic fantasy book series by Patrick Rothfuss. Kvothe is a musician and adventurer, and Lartnec has presented a cool interpretation of the character with his costume.

Cosplayer Yaya Han recently dressed up as Heartseeker Ashe from League of Legends, and I have to say that she looks like a real heartbreaker. And by that I mean, well, that she looks like she could put an arrow in your chest from a terribly great distance. Yeah, that’s probably going to hurt quite a bit.
