Pottermore has released the first photos of the cast in character from the Harry Potter and The Cursed Child play. More characters will be revealed in the coming days, but they kicked things off with a bang by featuring Harry, Ginny and Albus Potter as played by Jamie Parker, Poppy Miller and Sam Clemmett respectively.

As you’ll see in the individual characters shots below, the look of each character is pretty fantastic—especially Harry. Plus, Albus Severus is sporting a sweet new Hogwarts robe. [click to continue…]

I owe a big “thank you” to artist Kate Goodrich for her exceptional X-Men/Adventure Time mashup. Some of these would make for awesome cosplays. See more after the break…

lip art

It’s hard to look at something like this amazing art by makeup artist Miss Jazmina and not be super impressed. This post took me three times longer than usual to write because I just kept scrolling through her Instagram and stopping when I saw videos or designs that I had to get a better look at.

I invite you to check out the examples below and see why I was so captivated. [click to continue…]

I don’t know what it is about this Game Of Thrones/Sansa-inspired dress that I find so utterly captivating, but I’ve seen it in person and it’s just gorgeous. Elhoffer Design nailed it with this stretch burnout velvet over stretch scuba—and the sleeves flare out at the elbow in a gorgeous sweep.

hair washing robot

Simone Giertz is the self-proclaimed “queen of sh*tty robots”.

We are her loyal subjects. Long may she rule.

In her latest project, Giertz built a hair washing robot that will lather, abuse and repeat. Possibly electrocute.

Did you think Elon Musk would settle for a utilitarian-looking spacesuit? Of course not.

Spacesuits for SpaceX need to be both functional and awesome looking. So they hired Jose Fernandez or Ironhead Studio, one of the best costume designers in the movie business, to help make it happen.

You’ve probably seen Fernandez’s work in movies like Batman v Superman, Oblivion, Tron: Legacy, The Avengers, Iron Man, Jupiter Ascending and more. In an interview with Bleep Magazine, Fernandez notes:

SpaceX, the company run by Elon Musk, reached out to me to ask if I would create a space suit. I didn’t know what SpaceX was and I thought it was a film. Then I realized it’s an actual space program. They were looking to get a suit built for Elon to look at for the program. They had two weeks to present the suit to him and I told them I couldn’t do a full suit in two weeks but that I may be able to do a helmet. There were four other companies working on bids as well and at the end of the process, he hated everything except the helmet. I worked with him for six months and at the end of that, we created a suit that they are now reverse-engineering to make functional for flight.

hug hoodie

Cuddling close with a loved one is a tried-and-true method of staying warm. Now you can share body heat AND the love while loitering with the Together Wear hoodie.

It has “special hugging pockets”.

The concept is “to be closer together and to share the warmth of love while hugging,” and to, “feel as one while remaining two.”

Hahaha…gag. It’s cute though. Seriously. Check out the Kickstarter project video below along with additional pics.

So thaaaaat’s how they did that.

How much work went into making Deadpool look as shiny-snazzy-beautiful as possible for his debut solo movie outing? As it turns out, quite a lot. Not only did the design team working on the movie fret over the shape of the eyes and the face, they also had to make concessions for things like stunts and breathability.

Check out the behind-the-scenes snippet below.
