league of legends annie cosplay 2

Creating cosplay requires a lot of imagination and, as this League Of Legends Annie cosplay by Anna Lee shows, the willingness to decapitate adorable teddy bears and get creative.

Head after the break for more on what went into this devilishly cute look.

nerdy tees 1

Have a favorite fandom? Etsy shop The Inklings Reserve probably has a neat t-shirt, tank top, or sweatshirt design that’s got it covered. They have creative prints featuring Pacific Rim (I’m drooling over the Gypsy Danger t-shirt), Batman, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, and many more. The tops are available in various sizes for children, men, and women, and you can even choose from different shirt and ink colors. Basically, you have all the options.

Because each shirt is customizable, it’s made to order. The shop has a 5-7 day turnaround time for each design, but it looks like the wait is totally worth it.

i want to believe crop top

Etsy store Rusty Cuts has a magical power that will force you to throw money at the screen.

At least, that’s what happened to me when I saw the pictures of this X-Files inspired “I Want To Believe” crop top.

Check out more pictures after the break.

jayne bag 1

Jayne Cobb can be a tool from time to time, but you can’t deny the Firefly character has some damn funny lines. I think Jayne made me laugh out loud the most. From the song about the Hero of Canton (about him rather than said by him) to his cunning hat, I can’t choose a favorite. Craftster user Sharre captured her adoration for Jayne on a tote bag covered in his lines.

She designed the bag in Photoshop and printed it onto Iron-On Transfer paper. That was put onto a calico and cotton homespun bag. Yes, that simple. This makes me want to make quote bags for all my favorite characters.

Check out two more pics after the break.

firefly corsets 1

Would you like certain body parts to keep flying? Castle Corsetry’s gorgeous, new Firefly corsets can help with that. The Browncoat longline corset, pictured above, features the familiar logo and shapes your waist and hips. If you’d like to get more obvious with the Firefly references, the shop also has waist cinchers featuring Kaylee’s parasol or quotes from the series. Yes, it is most certainly shiny.

Corsets are made to order, and turnaround time is 4-8 weeks. As an owner of a corset from this company, I can vouch for their quality and general awesomeness.

ewok scarf cowl

Ewoks may be evil little creatures, but their questionable behavior doesn’t take away their adorable teddy bear appearance. They look huggable and soft, and their fur probably keeps them warm. This hood-scarf from Bijoux by Betta will keep you warm and make you look like a resident of Endor. The accessory has buttons on the sides of the hood so you can keep the scarf portion in place around your neck. I’ll give that a yub nub.

krang belt buckle

Set yourself apart from other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans with one amazing belt buckle: Krang! Etsy seller Christopher Genovese’s hand sculpted and painted piece is the sort of accessory that will get noticed. First of all, it’s giant. Second of all, it’s a pink and wrinkly supervillain! Wear it to conventions or rock it as an everyday cosplay option. Pretty soon it will take over your entire wardrobe (and possibly your mind). Any weird looks you receive while donning the fabulous piece are really just jealous stares.

Manufacturing time takes 1-3 weeks, and if you don’t want a giant Krang on your belly, you can order it as a display to hang on your wall.

Check out a couple more beauty shots of the buckle after the break.

maleficent

Denise over at Pirates Quarters‘ designs, constructs and hand paints masks, and her Disney versions are amazing. They’re creepy, in a good way because some of them are very spot on.

Check out more of her Disney masks after the break. (I’ve also included a Day Of The Dead mask because I loved it so much).
