Cosplay of the Day: Don’t Mess with Mecha-Chu

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

mecha

What happens when Pokemon meets Warhammer 40K? Why, Mecha-Chu is born, of course.

This badass costume was spotted at Supanova in Australia by Furbeach, and there’s one more photo below.

I think my favorite are the Pokeball shoulders and the string of Badge-ribbons on his chest. I’m half surprised he’s not toting Meowth’s severed head on his belt, but perhaps that would have been taking things a bit too far. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Dad Cosplay is Best Cosplay

Published by under Comics,Cosplay

A tumblr user wanted to prove to their dad that he was cool enough to cosplay as a middle-aged dude. The answer? F yeah he is:

“Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.

I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!”

Check out more shots of the dadplay (err that sounds weird) below. It’s a legitimately good costume and it helps he’s a handsome dude! Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Lady Spoiler of Spoilers

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

game_of_thrones_lady_stoneheart_cosplay_06

I’m going to tread very carefully here… This is a BIG GAME OF THRONES SPOILER, but just by looking at this picture, you won’t know why the f*** that would be unless you read the books. But in any case, go no further, and I won’t even discuss the character in question here until after the jump, just in case. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Action Heroine Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite

Published by under Cosplay,Images

bioshock-elizabeth-cosplay-3

Elizabeth in BioShock Infinite had the distinction of being a “damsel that didn’t suck.” Meaning, she’s not just a stand-around useless prop who you find in a castle at the end of the game, nor do you constantly have to beat away enemies trying to kill her. Rather, she tossed you health and ammo in battle, provided color commentary during the quieter moments, and was an all around likable gal.

And yet, the main character, Booker, was just another gun-toting grizzled white dude. What if it was actually Elizabeth who got to be the true hero, rather than a less-annoying-than-usual sidekick? Cosplayer Kristan Rocha crafted this excellent twist on her costume to find out. No more dresses here, and with the power of pants, hook gun and Amelia Earhart goggles, Elizabeth is ready for a leading role as a kick-ass action heroine. Check out more photos below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Mrs. Frizzle

Published by under Cosplay,Images

frizzle1

Photographer AK and cosplayer The Cosplay Genome have combined for a shoot that brings a beloved childhood character to life, in a mercifully not-oversexed way. Yes, this is Mrs. Frizzle from the Magic Schoolbus, and she’s fantastic.

Mrs. Frizzle led my imagination on some great voyages as a kid, as she did with he whole class, and I’m glad to see she hasn’t been forgotten in the present day. I fully expect there to be a Hollywood reboot of The Magic Schoolbus at some point and she’ll be played by Amy Adams or something, but until then, this cosplay is the best we’ve got. And it’s great. More photos below. Continue Reading »

Abstracted Superheroes By Jonathan Edwards

Published by under Cosplay,Images

Abstracted-Superheroes-by-Jonathan-Edwards-Hulk

Today we have some rather cool superhero abstractions from artist Jonathan Edwards. We’re used to seeing rounded pecs, delts, biceps and uh, that’s all the muscles I know on superheroes, but now in this version, it’s all a bit more cartoony and angular.

Edwards has the already cartoony and angular Thing in the collection, but also Spider-Man, Silver Surfer and Thor which you can check out below. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: She’s a Beast

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

beast3

What if Henry McCoy was Hailey McCoy? Well, she might look something like this. Cosplayer Reign has gotten blue and furry to become what is the first Lady Beast I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen gender swapped Cyclops, Wolverine, Gambit and more before, but usually the emphasis was on being sexy. Here? The emphasis is on being awesome.

You can check out a few more shots of Lady Beast growling or doing lab work. She also sort of reminds me of what it might look like if Mystique became a vampire. Continue Reading »

Attack on Titan Dog Cosplay: The World is Now Safe

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

attack-on-titan-dog-cosplay

Since I’m one of the cool kids now and have watched Attack of the Titan now that it came to Netflix, I can appreciate this. It’s the most fearsome, Titan-slaying pooch there is, courtesy of this Japanese fan on Twitter.

With a bit of cloth and apparently some Amazon boxes, little pup is ready to take on uh, skinless, terrifying uber-dogs with his little mini-jetpack. He looks so regal, like he literally understands that the weight of the world rests entirely on his shoulders.

You go kill those Titans, pup. You kill ‘em good. Continue Reading »

The Greatest Lannister Costume Ever

Published by under Cosplay,Images

Lannister2

This picture is from Wil Wheaton’s Twitter, as the actor was so impressed with this guy’s Game of Thrones costume, he had to share it with his millions of followers, myself included.

To become Tyrion Lannister, the guy dressed up his wheelchair to be the Iron Throne, then added very realistic looking tiny legs to get the full dwarf effect. The result is far and away the best Tyrion costume you could ever make, short of being an actual dwarf yourself.

Good work dude. May you get all the ladies. I’m serious, look at that ‘come hither’ face. Guy’s a boss.

Cosplay of the Day: A Miyazaki Princess and Her Pups

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

princess-mononoke-4

Princess Mononoke was the first Hayao Miyazaki movie I ever saw when I was little. It was also the first time I ever saw anyone’s head get chopped off on screen. It was a cartoon, but it still left and impression. Then Gladiator came and blew all that away in terms of ridiculous violence.

Anyway, it remains one of my favorite films, and I thought we’d start the week out with this fabulous tribute cosplay from Aventurine. In a few of the shots, she’s supersized Samoyed pups to look like giant wolves, which is sort of hilarious. And her mask is quite cool as well. Be sure to check out all the photos below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Queen of Dragons

Yesterday we showed you Madonna dressing up as Daenerys Targaryen for a Jewish holiday(?), but I figured you deserve better than a crappy Instagram photo. Try on this professional shoot with cosplay model Miss Alice Monster.

She’s got Dany down cold, and has an egg prop to boot. She looks a bit…confused for most of this shoot, but I suppose being a Khaleesi is a mysterious thing. Check out the full photo collection below, including one where she actually gets a real life (photoshop) dragon to command! Continue Reading »
