pikachu maid 1

A Pikachu Cafe is currently open in Tokyo, and the restaurant recently hosted an event that featured a Pikachu maid. Celebrity Rika Adachi dressed as pocket monster maid for the event (maid cafes are apparently a thing in that part of Tokyo), and her appearance makes sense since she’ll be appearing in the latest Pokémon movie as Marilyn Flame. I’m not sure why she didn’t dress as her character, but I guess it is a Pikachu themed restaurant.

lady deadpool 1

Wanda Wilson, a.k.a. Lady Deadpool, is a lot like her male namesake. She possesses similar powers and wears an almost identical costume. Cosplayer Betty Nukem looks just like the comic book character in her Lady Deadpool ensemble, and she definitely manages to evoke the necessary sass and irreverence.

hipster frozen cosplay

Sisters Christie and Robyn dressed as Elsa and Anna from Frozen at Tampa Bay Comic Con, but they didn’t do your average take on the costumes. No, they went hipster – and it’s hilarious. Elsa points out she’s lived off the grid, and Anna has organic carrots for your snowman. I love it.

Looks like Verne Troyer, aka Mini-Me, is a big fan of sharks. He posted this photo on his twitter account and it’s absolutely perfect. You just have to wonder where he’s hiding the laser beam because what fun are sharks without friggin’ laser beams?

baratheon2

This fantastic Robert Baratheon cosplay features Matt along with his friend Adrienne S. as Daenerys Targaryen. The pair wore their costumes at MegaCon 2014 held in Orlando, Florida. Robert has his hammer at the ready, but where on Earth have those troublesome dragons wandered to this time?

borderlands pants

Cosplayer Kirameku is working on a Nisha the Lawbringer costume, and she decided to make the jeans look cel shaded just like they do Borderlands. These pants look like they’re right out of the pages of a comic. She painted over denim jeans with a mixture of Textilcolor and water. She did an amazing job adding the highlights and shadows, and we can’t wait to see the finished costume.

Some girls dream of marrying a prince and it looks like Blaine Gibson always dreamed of marrying a princess. He set about making his dreams a reality recently at Walt Disney World when he got down on one knee and proposed to the Disney princesses (and a fairy). Ariel, Cinderella, and even Jasmine were on the list, despite Aladdin’s disapproval.

He proposed to a villain too. See the pics after the break to find out who it is.

iron man hulkbuster armor 1

If you’re going to go up against the Hulk, you need to be appropriately attired. Thus, Hulkbuster armor. The sturdy suit of Iron Man’s will appear in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Pablo Bairan’s already taken a stab at the ensemble based on what’s appeared in comic books. It’s massive, and I can’t imagine how it must be rigged in order to fit a human and be mobile. I’m almost speechless.

Check out a couple more photos of the impressive build after the break.
