One would think that giving someone the finger in these unicorn gloves wouldn’t be quite as effective in terms of the message, but maybe that’s not the case. Maybe, the person on the receiving end of this would be instantly captivated by the majesty of this glorious beast and feel devastated at provoking it’s ire. It must be like gazing at a beautiful rainbow in a thunderstorm.

The good news is that you can find out for free using this free knitting pattern at Ravelry. All it requires is a basic modification of existing gloves.

Remember last Halloween when those kids riding a custom Mad Max Power Wheels War Rig went viral? Or how about that adorable Ecto-1 costume or the Back To The Future DeLorean from a few years back? Despite a desire to take a break from elaborate Halloween costume builds for Halloween this year, Cory and Jeremy Newton-Smith couldn’t resist doing something creative.

Inspired by the original Glowy Zoey costume (you have to check out this year’s Glowy Zoey costume btw) Cory and Jeremy decided to tackle their own version of an electroluminescent costume with a 3-in-1 superhero upgrade. Take a closer look at the costume below. [click to continue…]

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Though, in my opinion, the GIF above is reason enough to bring it into the world.

Not deterred? Continue on to the video below. [click to continue…]

As he is wont do do, Adam Savage went incognito in costume at the recent installment of New York Comic Con. This time he went as Totoro, and you can see how he built this wonderful costume in the video below. We’ve also added the video of his NYCC appearance because we’re thorough like that.

On December 28th 1974 the Fourth Doctor, brilliantly and memorably portrayed by Tom Baker, made his debut. Along with a delightfully odd sense of humor, a manic smile and, of course, his trademark scarf. A scarf that so captured the imagination of scifi fans around the world that it’s one of a handful of clothing items with its own fanbase dedicated to recreating the thing as accurately as possible.

During the early ’80s, the BBC regularly received letters from the public asking how they could get their own Whovian neckwear, and the then-new BBC Enterprises (the commercial arm of the company, now known as BBC Worldwide) responded in quite possibly the most BBC way possible – by providing instructions for knitting your own. A standard memo was prepared to respond to such queries. That memo was shared online by 93Fangshadow, and you can see it below. [click to continue…]

Get all of the info below. [click to continue…]

demogorgon-tutorial

I suspect that Stranger Things cosplay will be hot this Halloween. Eleven and Barb are the obvious choices—a box of Eggo waffles and a pair mom jeans are easy enough to procure. However, if you’re feeling ambitious you can try the following Demogorgon makeup tutorial which will require some extra effort. The results would be worth it though. [click to continue…]
