    This is the Pimp2-D2 action figure that will be for sale by Manly Art at this weekend's New York Comic-Con. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say HOLY SHIT THIS IS REALLY HIGH UP. Did I trick you? I'm actually at my desk. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this... / Continue →

    This is a video from the recent GamesCon in Germany, which had a custom Super Mario Bros. level that people could play as a time trial. After 974 people played, they compiled everybody's run into one video. This is that video. Some people seemed to breeze through, while othe... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Iron Man Link spotted at PAX Australia. He has a glowing Triforce arc reactor and Triforce hand repulsors. So -- you think he's ready to take on Ganon or not? Because I bet if Link showed up to the final boss battle flying around and shooting particle beams... / Continue →

    This is a video of various well-dressed cosplayers spotted at Comic-Con set to some song called 'One In A Million'. Volume is optional, but not encouraged. I just took my last pain pills then fell down the stairs trying to catch the ice cream man before he passed my street. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy cosplaying as the QWOP runner (links to game) at Anime North 2013. I'm pretty sure it's the same guy who cosplayed as the QWOP runner at Anime North 2012, but with AN IMPROVED ROUTINE. That's serious commitment to the character. He took a year, pract... / Continue →

    This is a shot by Vincent James Cracchiolo of a little girl cosplaying as Stan Lee and sitting on the real Stan Lee's lap at the recent Motor City Comic-Con. No word if Stan was insulted by the girl's lack of teeth but I'm assuming not because Stan seems like a pretty nice guy... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Stan Lee posing with a bunch of lady cosplayers at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con and the shadow of Thor's hammer making it look like he pissed himself. He didn't though, so it's all good. Or -- OR -- is Thor just covering for him? I'm joking, ther... / Continue →

    This is a shot from WonderCon of a dog cosplaying as Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Probably not by choice mind you. I'm not sure what kind of dog that was before the whole shaving and transformation, but I'm guessing one that still had some dignity. ... / Continue →

    This is self-proclaimed 'Destroyer of Cards' Amy Demicco at the PAX East convention in Boston sporting the dress, helmet and axe she made from 800 cut up Magic: The Gathering cards. Now before you go off complaining about how could somebody cut up perfectly good Magic cards, ... / Continue →

    Remember the 400,000 piece LEGO Hogwarts build by Alice Finch? Well this is a time lapse of its assembly. Not the entire build mind you, just putting together the predominately per-assembled pieces for display at the Emerald City Comicon. A time-lapse of the actual build, go... / Continue →

    This is cosplayer Sasha Trabane sporting a TARDIS dress with the TARDIS interior cleverly painted by Andy Coyle in between the pleats. Is that the correct terminology -- pleats? Despite what I may have lead you to believe in the past, I'm not actually an expert on women's fas... / Continue →

    I swear I saw this or something like it years ago but that could just be my brain playing tricks on me because when you have a brain that operates this poorly, a lot of weird thing happen. I put a box of cereal in the refrigerator this morning -- it's getting bad. This a shot... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a man dressed up like Pikachu but also a pimp so everyone's calling him Pimpkachu. I'm calling him so well dressed he doesn't even need to open his eyes to slay other trainers. And I'm calling that blurry woman on the far left IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. Thanks... / Continue →

    This is a shot by Flickr users Matt & Kristy from Dragon*Con featuring a lovely lady showing off her map of Middle Earth dress and matching clutch. Are you surprised I know what a clutch is? ME TOO. *eying picture* I don't know, she seems to have a sort of Disney princess a... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy at some recent convention cosplaying as one of those spazzy inflatable dancing guys they always display outside car dealerships whenever they're having a MEGA BLOWOUT SUPERSALE. He gets an A+ for creativity. Also, based on the audio I'm fairly conf... / Continue →

    Note: I actually TRIED to find a better picture. Newlyweds Jossie Sockertopp and Sonnie Gustavsson (no clue which is which) became Britain's first couple to get married in a Klingon wedding, tying the knot at a Star Trek convention over the weekend. Here in the states? I don... / Continue →

    This a smattering of the 600+ cosplay photos Norman Chan from over at Tested.com took during this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. I posted 25 random ones after the jump, but you should really go peruse the entire gallery. I just like, threw a dart at a dartboard and posted wha... / Continue →

    This is Don Schwabs sporting his Pikachu Pokemon Card costume at the recent Melbourne Supanova Pop Cultcha Expo. You can tell it's a great costume because you can still wear cargo shorts with it. Thanks to Little Sister, who I promised to protect with my spinning drill arm an... / Continue →

    In case you haven't heard, marketing agency BBH Labs hired 13 roaming (and possibly scavenging) homeless people and strapped them with belt-bombs Wi-Fi hotspots to help serve the internet needs of South by Southwest (SXSW) convention goers. It's drawing a lot of controversy BE... / Continue →

    Have I ever told you when I was watching the 1987 live action He-Man movie in the theater the film got caught in the projector and melted? That's a true story, I remember it vividly. This is a lady cosplaying as He-Man's arch-nemesis Skeletor at Megacon 2012. She isn't actua... / Continue →
