Cosplay of the Day: Kim Possible

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television


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


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

Published by under Cosplay,Images


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 »

Cosplay(er) of the Day: Illyne

Published by under Cosplay,Images


I’m not sure how I’ve gone all this time without ever stumbling across Illyne, a cosplayer extraordinaire who has some of the best costumes I’ve seen. I’m pretty sure she’s French, judging by her Facebook page, and she’s got great versions of Wonder Woman, Lara Croft, and characters from Diablo, Guild Wars, World of Warcraft and more.

Seriously, it’s quite a collection. I took a pair of pictures from each of her best costumes which you can check out below. I am now ashamed of all my previous costume attempts. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: A Return to Lady Link

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games


It’s been a while since we’ve featured a good old crossplayed Link, and I figured Lolita Zombie’s attempt was as good a time as any to revisit the subject.

It is a rather good costume, and Lolita proves yet again that Link looks better probably 90% of the time when being cosplayed as a women. If Nintendo just flipped his gender in one of the games one time, I’m not sure how many would even complain. Just kidding, everyone would complain because…the internet.

Cosplay of the Day: Finally, a Great Gambit

Published by under Cosplay,Images


Gambit seems like one of those superheroes that it’s really tough to get right when cosplayed. Even though it’s just a coat, chestplate, staff, a deck of cards and a head…thing, it can easily look terribly if any one of these elements goes awry.

But somehow, some way, Michael Huffman got it right. Hes’s got the look and the costume down perfectly, and while I’m not sure why it looks like he has a transformer down his pants, but other than that, it’s a great effort. Check out other shots of the costume below. Continue Reading »

A Cosplay Paradise at Colossalcon

Published by under Cosplay,Videos

Another day, another cosplay music video, though this time my friend David Hoang had nothing to do with it, surprisingly. This is from something called Colossalcon, which takes place in Sandusky, Ohio, which may not mean anything to you, but for me, growing up in the midwest, this was PARADISE.

Why? Because it’s where CEDAR POINT is, home of the best rollercoasters and water parks in uh, well at least in the midwest. Though I’ve been to other parks everywhere, and have never found better rides. The Magnum! The Gemini! The Millenium Force! The Power Tower! The Top Thrill Dragster Which is Almost Always Broken! Ahhh, the memories.

What was I talked about again? Oh yeah, cosplay, music, dancing. Watch above.

Cosplay of the Day: We Are Gender Bending Star Lord Already

Published by under Cosplay,Images


It’s not as if Star Lord is a new character, as Guardians of the Galaxy has been around in comic form for quite a while now. But it’s about to vault into the mainstream with the upcoming film starring Chris Pratt as the lead, and so we have the first female Star Lord that at least I’ve seen.

The cosplayer is Watchtower, and she’s got the gun, the coat, the headphones, you know all the Star Lord stuff. Sorry, I don’t know the character all that well yet, but this seems pretty good to me. Check out a bunch more photos of the costume below via WeNeals Photography and Retouching. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: The Dead Walk

Published by under Cosplay,Images


At what point is “cosplay” so detailed that is ceasing being cosplay at all? I feel like we may have hit that mark with what could me the world’s most terrifying zombie make-up, which transcends the traditional Walking Dead and is straight-up Draugr.

If this was part of one of those zombie runs, I think this guy wins first place no matter what. Hell, I’m not even positive this isn’t just physical evidence of straight-up black magic, finally caught on film. Check out two more shots below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Gender Swapped Frozen Princes

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies


It’s one of those rare times where we see gender swapped cosplay NOT sexifying our male heroes. Rather, it’s a fabulous switch up from Dakun and Hadukoshi that shows what the films would have been like if two princes had been the leads instead of princesses. No need for battle armor or ice swords, just simple tunics and crowns. Check out the pictures below.  Continue Reading »
