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.

her universe TFA styles

As SDCC inches closer (I’m not ready, are you?) Her Universe is having a good time teasing new clothes and planning for the Her Universe Fashion Show. For example, the image above shows off the upcoming Phasma jacket and leggings and the BB-8 / Kylo Ren dresses that will debut soon at Hot Topic.

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, the open call for prospective designers for this year’s Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 is this Saturday, April 23rd at 1pm. Just bring your sketches/designs, portfolio and examples of previous work.

If you’re not a designer, you can still be a part of the fun. The Comic-Con HQ channel will be filming for the new series about The Her Universe Fashion Show and you’ll be among the first to see and purchase the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection designed by last year’s fashion show winners Kelly Cercone and Leetal Platt.

You can get more information on the event page on Facebook.

gijinka pokemon

About as far back as I can remember, gijika (humanized) Pokemon cosplay has been a hit at just about every convention I’ve ever attended. So when I saw this amazing fan art set by artist Tamtamdi, ideas started churning.

Not only does this colorful set bring Pokemon to life in fun ways, it also focuses on cool, body-positive designs.

Check out more of these designs below.

While Catherine Elhoffer usually makes geeky women’s apparel, she took a little detour into the men’s department with these two custom-made vests.

The Gryffindor vest looks gorgeous with its Silk Dupioni fabric and lion buttons while the other vest is ready for Dapper Day. It’s based on a Disney character that some people find to be pretty foxy.

As always, I’m impressed. Check out more details below.

cat hair tattoo

St. Petersburg-based hairdresser Aliya Askarova really loves her cat.

In fact, she has a brightly multi-colored cat hair tattoo undercut to pay tribute to her beloved feline. Hair tattoos have become a new trend and Askarova is clearly all over it. She’s got an interesting style overall. I dig it.

Check out more pics below (including the beautiful cat that inspired this creation).

Haha..what the hell? Somebody needs to do a Sailor Starkiller cosplay right this instant.

Oh Annicron, I don’t know what is going on here but I love it.

elhoffer scarlet top

As you may have noticed, Catherine Elhoffer has been getting into some Marvel-inspired designs lately. While not everything is 100% finished, it’s all pretty awesome.

My favorite is the Scarlet Witch-inspired top pictured above.

I also commissioned a Jedi-inspired hooded duster/cardigan (with pockets!) for me that’s so cozy I’ve been wearing it practically non-stop so I figured I’d put that in, too.

Check out all of the new designs below.

In case you’ve missed every other post on your Facebook timeline as of late, Cartoon Network recently launched a fun new character creation site called “Powerpuff Yourself” where fans can design their own character in the style of Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls revival (premiering today, April 4th). 

With a cool and diverse array of options, the character creator holds several Cartoon Network-specific Easter eggs (including Finn’s hat from Adventure Time).

glitter prosthetic

I’d like to introduce you to my new hero. 10-year-old Jordan Reeves invented a prosthetic that shoots glitter.

It even has the perfect name: Project Unicorn.

Plus Jordan is working with Autodesk designer Sam Hobbish, KIDmob, and the Superhero Cyborg workshop in San Francisco to make her invention even cooler.

I can’t wait to see the results. Go Jordan! ::glitter bomb::

Also cool? Jordan’s invention is just one of the prosthetics made at the workshop. Someone needs to hire all of these kids. I’m thinking they could make the world a much more amazing place.

Check out the video and additional pics below.

epona-horse-haircut-1

If you’re going to spend your days smashing pots and saving princesses, you’ll need a majestic horse. Few horses are as majestic as this one thanks to JMC Equestrian Clipping.

The cut is called the ‘Armor of Love’, and though it’s not based specifically on The Legend Of Zelda, this steed does looks ready to impress the Queen at the local Renaissance Faire, or take on an evil sorcerer alongside the hero.

Check out more pics below.
