When Canadian-based cosplayer Vicky Lau from Vivid Vision was invited to showcase her cosplays at Western Canada Fashion Week, she became the first designer ever to have cosplay included in the event—we hope she’s just the first of many.
Lau not only made all the cosplays for this showcase, but both the Battle Princess Anna and Heart Seeker Janna cosplays were original designs. I love the Battle Princess Anna and I’d love to see an Elsa version.

We just discovered ZARCADE!Wear and their super-punch graphic blend of classic sci-fi, punk and comic book mashups. They offer designs on everything from dresses to swim trunks that pay homage to classics like X-Files, Hellboy, RoboCop, Batman Returns, Barbarella, Fight Club, Twin Peaks and more.
The illustrations look like they popped right out of a comic and the colors are bold. I desperately need one of everything. Check out more examples after the break.
Do you want to make a fashion statement that says “I’m a survivor”? Then look no further than Demobaza.com.
Actually, the tattered jackets and pants would be perfect for a Mad Max or Walking Dead cosplay. The site has a ton of creative options for men and women to combine and layer for that perfect neo-futuristic vibe.

Architect and fashion illustrator Shamekh Bluwi has come up with a unique way to combine his two skills into one. He creates paper cutouts of his dress designs leaving large blank spaces. He then holds them up to the real world and lets the city of Amman, Jordan complete the design.

We’ve seen our share of period makeovers for pop culture characters (the Mike Wrobel Game Of Thrones series comes to mind), but Julia Wytrazek’s Scooby Gang series is something new. In her Behance project, Wytrazek explains that she was inspired by the changes she saw in the characters from their debut in 1969. So, she decided to draw them for every decade of the 20th century.
Keeping their original color schemes, here are her reimagined takes on Velma, Daphne, Shaggy, and Fred. I personally love Daphne in the ’90s and Velma in the ’30s.

Parents often disapprove of the apparel choices of their kids. One mom took things to a whole new level when her 16-year-old daughter ordered a crocheted crop top on Amazon. It was so small and revealing that she used a picture of the family cat in her scathing review. One size fits all indeed.

Fashion designer Anna Sui recently did her own Sailor Moon line and now she plans to open pop up stores in six locations in Japan this May. The stores will feature exclusive purses, wallets, and pouches that are inspired by some of Japan’s most famous manga creators including Osamu Tezuka, Ryoko Ikeda, and Rumiko Takahashi.
If you’ll be traveling to Japan next month, maybe you can pick up a couple things for me? Sooooooo cute.

If you liked our earlier post that featured artwork of historically accurate Disney Princesses, you’re going to love this new Buzzfeed video that brings those Princesses to life.
The video features several of your favorite princesses and some interesting facts that explains why each one is dressed in her period garb.
Amusingly, there’s a debate going on in the YouTube comments about whether Aurora is English or French, but I can understand if you want to avoid the comments section.

If you’ve ever let your child dress themselves, you’ll know that kids aren’t really prone to choosing their clothes with “matching” in mind. However, the results can be fun and creative.
Summer Bellessa thought it would be interesting to let her 3-year-old son Rockwell pick out her outfits for a week, explaining that, “It was therapeutic for both of us to change roles, if even in this small way. He enjoyed having his opinions heard…”
I have to say, I like what he came up with –– mismatches and all.
