Cosplay of the Day: A Fearsome Lady Zangief

Published by under Cosplay,Video Games

zangief

There’s a first time for everything in cosplay, and yes, this is definitely the first time I’ve ever seen Zangief crossplayed by a woman. I was not expecting the chest hair to carry over, but I’m very glad it did.

The cosplayer is Kayla Rose, the photographer is Micktography. Kayla certainly has the crazed look down, as you’ll see in the other pictures below, and has all the powerslamming abilities of the male variant. Though I will admit her positioning with Cammy looks a bit compromising. Check out the other photos below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: The Amazing Miles Morales

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

For those of you not following the comic book Spider-Man universe these days, Peter Parker has been subbed out and Miles Morales has tagged in as Spider-Man. The black-hispanic teen is part of Marvel’s ongoing effort to ensure their entire line-up of superheroes doesn’t remain an endless string of white guys. The character was supposed to be inspired by a hybrid of Barack Obama and Donald Glover, hence why everyone’s always begging Glover to get the role in a Marvel movie that doesn’t exist yet.

Anyway, Morales will likely make it to the big screen someday, but before he does, that’s why we have cosplay. Another young man was constantly told he looked like Morales, and so Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey decided that he should probably get a costume to match. Once he’s donned it, the effect is uncanny (errr, that’s X-Men), and you can see more evidence of that in the gallery below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Ring Collectors

Published by under Cosplay,Video Games

sonic and tails

Cosplay is more fun with family, and I think it’s pretty damn cool that these two sisters have close enough interests to form their own cosplay team, Opposite Cosplay.

Their latest shoot captured by Meg Super has one as Tails and one as Sonic in homemade costumes that upgrade the famed critter to having racing-ready high heels. That’s probably the only time I’ve ever seen Sonic lounging around, but at least he’s having ten million dreams per minute, or something like that. Gotta go fast.

I highly suggest you check out more cosplay from the ladies at their Facebook page here.

Cosplay of the Day: Disney Warrior Princesses Come to Life

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

I’ve lost track of the amount of fan art I’ve seen giving “badass” makeovers to various Disney Princesses. But now one group has decided to bring the concept to life with all the midriff-bearing armor and weapons you can handle. These are the Disney Warrior Princesses. They don’t need anyone to save them.

The photos come from The Will Box, and the ladies are all listed here if you’re curious. You can see individual shots of each of them below, though it goes without saying trident-wielding battle-Ariel is the best. In any case, check out the whole collection: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Ice Warrior Elsa Ready for Battle

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

elsa-armor-main

In the Disney film, Elsa may have “let it go” in the end, when it came to hunting the people who ostracized her, but not so in this cosplay version by Mimiru Riley. In her parallel Frozen universe, Elsa is ready for battle with self-made ice armor, and ready to jump into the fray right alongside her mutant snowman friend.

Poor uh, what’s her name again? Anna. She’s the lead of that movie, yet she’s always playing second fiddle to her sister with magical ice powers. I suppose magical ice powers will do that.

Cosplay of the Day: The Perfect Nebula

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

Ever cosplay so hard that the director of the film of the character you’re cosplaying actually pays you a direct compliment? Then you must not be Karin Olava, who has created a Nebula costume so on point, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn said that he “loves it.”

And how could anyone not? It’s one of those costumes that transcends costume, and you literally just are the person you’re dressing up as. You can check out more about the process of making the costume at Olava’s Instagram here, which reveals that yes, she actually did shave her head for this. I’m surprised she didn’t legally change her name from Karin to Karen, just to be one shade closer to the actual actress, Karen Gillan.

Cosplay of the Day: The Littlest Leeloo

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

leeloo

I can’t say I’ve ever seen The Fifth Element’s Leeloo cosplayed by a kid before. Namely because usually the women are dressed up in the other costume, the one that involves bandages, more bandages, and nothing else.

Fortunately, this girl is using the other more fun, more conservative outfit, and has a partner (parent?) to match. I will be amazed if a girl that age has actually sat through all of The Fifth Element, but either way she gets props for this costume.

The Drogo Dream

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

Everything is kind of muted today after the death of Robin Williams, but we soldier on nonetheless.

The above shot was taken at a recent convention where a pretty accurate Khal Drogo cosplayer found himself surrounded by varying-degrees-of-accurate Daenerys Targaryen cosplays, some with dragons, some without, all looking particularly fierce. Bonus points if you used your actual hair, which I think two out of the thirteen did. Hell, even the actress herself doesn’t use her real hair, so respect if you can pull that off.

Alright, so who is man enough to eat the horse’s heart to please Drogo?

The Ultimate SDCC Cosplay Music Video

Published by under Cosplay,Videos

You may have missed SDCC this year (like me!) but if you wanted to catch up on at least some of the best cosplay from the show, look no further than the above music video. We see a lot of these every year, but there’s perhaps no more epic cosplay event than SDCC itself, so this is kind of the king musical cosplay video of them all.

If you’re at all into the scene, you’ll see a few recognizable faces, if not, you’ll see a hell of a lot of awesome costumes all the same. Watch the full video above, and you’ll be groovin’ and movin’ and planning your next costume by the end.

Cosplay of the Day: Rocketta Raccoon

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

We’ve already seen our first bit of Guardians of the Galaxy crossplay with a female Star Lord, but determined not to be outdone, one SDCC cosplayer decided to make Rocket Raccoon a girl, and photographer David Ngo caught her on film.

So, when do we see female Groot and Drax, or better yet, male Gamora? I’m guessing we will lay eyes on all of them at one point or another, knowing the world of cosplay

Words can’t express how excited I am for this movie on Friday.

Cosplay of the Day: Batman’s Most Dangerous Foe

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

batmanrine

Well that’s one bit of mash-up cosplay I’ve never seen before. What would happen if universes collided at the Wolverine merged with Joker? We’d get the Jokerine, seen above with one real claw, and one gag one.

It’s not impossible, because I remember back in the Marvel vs. DC days, that saga ended with a whole bunch of crossovers between worlds, though Joker/Wolverine wasn’t among them. Amalgams, they called them, right? I’m so good at comic books.
