Cosplay of the Day: This. Is. Hall-o-ween.

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

skelington

The Nightmare Before Christmas was one of those movies I wasn’t allowed to watch as a kid because of the fact that it would probably give me nightmares despite its myriad of musical numbers, so I didn’t actually end up watching it until uh, college.

Needless to say, it still holds up well over time, even as we’re (mostly) shifting away from this kind of animation and into pure CGI (other than rare Boxtrolls exceptions).

The above? That’s no animation prop. That’s cosplay from Fenski who has created just about the most perfect Skellington costume you can imagine, outside of having the physical proportions of Slenderman. Amazing stuff.

Cosplay of the Day: Lady Sherlock

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

sherlock-cosplay

Sherlock appears to be yet another one of those characters like Link who is more effectively cosplayed by the opposite gender. I’m not sure what that says about Benedict Cumberbatch in this case, but it’s hard to say that cosplayer  Mi-caw-ber has done anything other than a bang-up job with her costume here.

You can see a few more shots of her in action below, including the full trenchcoat which is a must-have for any Sherlock ensemble. Scarves can only get you so far, after all.  Continue Reading »

Team Extreme Archeology

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

QAsDP5y

The most famous two archaeologists in pop culture (outside of Indiana Jones, who inspired them both) are most definitely Lara Croft and Nathan Drake, and though they never appear together in a game, they make for rather excellent couples cosplay.

I tried to dress up as Nathan Drake a few years back on Halloween, but I’ll admit this guy does a wayyy better job of it. Mostly due to that scarf. And handsomeness. Obviously lady Croft is flawless as well. There are more pictures to check out from their shoot below. I love that she bought an ice pick.  Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: ROOF-FIE-AAAAAA!

Published by under Cosplay,Movies

rufio

Why yes, I do sort of just add an “a” to everything when it comes to crossplay, and today is no exception. This is Rufio turned Rufia by RedStarCosplay who has clearly done a fantastic job with the concept. It’s tempting me to go back and watch Hook, but I think Robin Williams would make me too sad.

Check out more pictures in this series here, where sadly she does not end up butchering Captain Hook with that mean-looking sword.

Cosplay of the Day: The Sapphire of Tarth

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

brienne-cosplay-2

I’ve seen Game of Thrones women cosplayed from Sansa to Arya to Dany (and Dany, and Dany, and Dany), but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone take on Brienne of Tarth before. Not until GalacticCat that is, who has some killer armor and the look the match the fan-favorite Game of Thrones warrior maid.

You really don’t get much better than this if you’re trying to take on Brienne, and you should absolutely check out the rest of the gallery below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Back Away Slowly

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

god of war

I’ve seen a rise in female Kratoses lately (Krati?), and I have to say these ladies are doing a hell of a job. In addition to somehow having absolutely perfect blades of chaos, cosplayer Miss Sinster clearly has the bloodlust down as well.

Pairing the always amazing Sinister with the also amazing Foto Mike, and this is probably one of the best single cosplay shots I’ve ever seen, and I post something like this every day.

There’s one more photo you should see below, where male Kratos joins the party. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: The Corgi Cosplayer

Published by under Cosplay,Images

cosplay_corgi_01

It doesn’t get mentioned on the site very often (or ever, so far as I can tell), but I have a soft spot in my hard heart for Corgis. Like, I’m not one of those fawn over animal people, but there’s just something about those permanently happy faces and tiny little legs that I can’t resist.

Naturally, when one starts cosplaying, I lose it.

Meet Kiba, the only cosplaying Corgi I know, and one who has dressed up as Link, Mario Ezio Auditore and a few others. Needless to say, you’re going to want to check out the rest of the pictures below. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: The Littlest Nightcrawler

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

Nightcrawler

I think it’s safe to say that cute kids can dress up as literally almost any character these days, and it’s still going to be cute. This used to just be “Halloween,” but now with the advent of cosplay, the costumes get more elaborate and less generic, firmly fixed in established pop culture franchise. Cosplaying parents want their kids to be the talk of the convention, so this is how we get blue children like the one above.

This took place at DragonCon, and though I don’t know the name of the kid or the photographer, I think it’s safe to say he stole the show. I imagine his little teleport explosions are very small.

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.
