This awesome Leshen cosplay features idromy aka Angelique Heikens in a costume that she created. The whole thing is extra imposing because she’s on stilts that make her 2.25 meters tall if you include the horns. The whole thing was made from scratch using sculpting, molding, latex and resin casting, and hand-painted leather.

This Lana Kane cosplay is looking good thanks to Highwinded Cosplay. She created the Archer costume for Fan Expo Vancouver. The gun holsters were made from scratch and she styled her own wig with “looots of hairspray”.

Cosplayer Charles Battersby recently dressed as two princesses at once during New York City’s FlameCon. He’s half Cinderella, half Belle, and all fantastic. So, is this CinderBellea or Bellerella?

goat minions

People dress up their pets all the time. This usually means putting the family dog or cat in a costume, but this time around it’s a pair of twin Nigerian dwarf goats. I wonder how Gru would feel about having a couple of these guys join the team?

See the adorable video after the break.

rapunzel cosplay

The trickiest bit of a Rapunzel costume is replicating that beautiful woven hairstyle. Redditor ohemgrace took it a step further by making the hair glow like it does in the movie. She used 120 LEDs in the wig and programmed them to fade on progressively. The lights are controlled by an arduino mega at the nape of her neck that’s connected by a wire to the battery packs in her pockets. Brilliant.

Cosplayer Julian Checkley is pictured here in what may be the most incredible Batman cosplay ever. He decided to create the outfit in honor of the Batman video games, specifically Batman’s look in Arkham Orgins.

The armor is 3D printed and it includes a working fireball gauntlet, folding batarangs, and a wrist computer that displays sonar pings. The 3D printing was done by Kevin LeProp with photos by Kamil Krawczak.

See more pictures and video of the gauntlet in action after the break.
