Cosplay of the Day: Ice Warrior Elsa Ready for Battle

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

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

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

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

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.

Cosplay of the Day: Kim Possible

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

Kim-Possible-4

It’s been a good long while since I’ve thought about Kim Possible, as I can’t say it was one of the cartoons I grew up with. By 2002, I was too cool for more non-South Park or Family Guy cartoons, so I’ve only seen a handful of episodes of the series.

That said, I know that this Kim Possible cosplay by Amber Skies is pretty damn great. It may be a lot less complicated than other costumes, based largely on red hair, baggy pants and a cropped shirt, but I like that she went the extra mile for specific Kim Possible posses like the one above, and naturally, the famous air kick.

Check out the rest of the series for yourself below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: The Amazing Captain Spider-Man

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

Usually we think of crossplay as characters being gender-flipped, but I think the term could be stretched to apply to the above as well, where redditor Darayz has taken two characters, and made a costume that’s a cross between them.

They have yet to be seen together in the same film, but now they don’t have to be with the existence of Captain Spider-Man. Apparently this isn’t some obscure comic story I’ve missed over the years. Rather, it was inspired by a DeviantArt drawing that combined the two and came up with that awesome logo.

Cosplay of the Day: Old School Mystique

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

mystiqe_by_hidory-d53od9g

The Mystique we know and love nowadays is Jennifer Lawrence wearing nothing but blue bodypaint and scale flakes, but it wasn’t always that way. Once upon a time, Mystique actually wore clothes, as evidenced by this bit of flashback cosplay from Hidory.

This is how I remember her in the X-Men animated series days, complete with belt of skulls and weird head jewel. Hidory does a great job here, and her photographer makes her look about seven feet tall, which amplifies the intimidation effect. Check out more shots from the series below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: MeishaMock’s Mononoke

When I was a kid, Princess Mononoke was my first anime crush, and she didn’t need giant gozangas to get my attention, like so many other characters in the genre. She was capable, cool and fierce, and I’m a sucker for any good cosplay I see of her.

One such example would be MeishaMock’s version, which is just about as good as you can get, costume-wise. If you browse her page, she’s also a great Nidalee from League of Legends and Daenerys Targaryen as well. Continue Reading »
