We saw tons of amazing cosplay at New York Comic Con 2012 with costumes covering everything you could imagine. Some were off the rack, others were the work of painstaking hours of sewing, and some were so crazy you weren’t sure what to think. No matter the kind of costume, cosplayers make the con and we’ve collected a few of our favorites right here.

Last week ThinkGeek sent us an unique new device that promised to “change the fabric of audio reality forever”—the Mega Stomp Panic. Simply put, it’s a device that straps to your waist and generates sounds with each step and stomp that you take. In other words, it gives your cosplay it’s own motion-based sound effects. The question is, does it actually work?

Find out in the video after the break.

People cosplay for a host of different reasons. For some, it’s about the craftsmanship and the satisfaction of making an exact replica of a favorite character’s costume. Some love to show off their creations to the crowds at conventions; they can’t get enough of getting their picture taken and talking to others about cosplay. More often, it’s a combination of those two motivations. For others though, it’s about more. Members of organizations across the country put on costumes for charity.

Imagine you’re a sick kid stuck in the hospital. You’re scared, and you aren’t able to leave the confines of the ward much if at all. But Star Wars helps you to forget about these problems for a little while. You’ve seen the movies as many times as your parents let you, you have piles of the toys, and you like to pretend you’re a Jedi. Now imagine characters from your beloved saga show up in your hospital wing. Jedi, Stormtroopers, Yoda, and even Darth Vader are suddenly real and in front of your eyes.

Yeah, that would be a big freaking deal.

Nerds like us don’t venture out all that much, but if you’re forced to leave the basement — and it’s cold outside — you’ll be happy to know that there are plenty of clothing options like these that are warm, functional and stylish.

Love is in the air. You met the perfect person at the comic book store. You both reached for the latest issue of Hellboy at exactly the same time. Several passionate rants about the changes in the Star Wars movies, multiple discussions about the best version of Dungeons and Dragons, and one Doctor Who marathon later, you’ve decided it was meant to be. You’re taking the plunge, and you’ve decided to weave your love for all things nerdy into your wedding day. Chances are the latest issue of Brides magazine isn’t going to give you the right kind of inspiration or the best resources. Since ads for custom wedding lightsabers don’t tend to find their way into the pages of mainstream planning magazines, you have to look outside the white, lacy box. We’re here to help.

Last week we first got wind of the upcoming Powerbag lineup, and though we’ve seen plenty of gadget-charging bags in the past, these looked to be of a higher quality. Naturally, we wanted to try out one of the bags for ourselves—and we came away fairly impressed.
