    This is a shot from some convention of some Orion slave girl (although I'm not overlooking the possibly she's just a human who painted herself green -- hopefully with nontoxic stuff and not the kind they use to paint the sides of aircraft carriers) with a sign that reads 'Kirk ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the line to get into the 1983 San Diego Comic Con -- 31 years before the shit show it is today. Wait, where are all the costumes? Where are all the people in general? 1983 was already the 13th year of the convention? It's been happening since 1970? I did ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Peter Griffin cosplayer performing some stand up comedy at the Allentown (that's in Pennsylvania) Comic Con. He does a great job. I laughed, I cried, I masturbated. I'm kidding, I never cried. Keep going for the video.... / Continue →

    Because the majority of major news outlets do a worse job than I do (and I literally do zero job and try to talk about privates as much as possible), here's a headline from The Los Angeles Times' coverage of the E3 convention. As you can see, somebody clearly knew what they we... / Continue →

    This is a short video of the world's most precious Predator spotted at WonderCon last month. Pretty cute, right? Almost makes me wish I had a kid to dress up. Mostly to accessorize my own costume. That's what kids are for, right? "Please don't breed." Ahahahhaha, you thin... / Continue →

    This is a short video of General Grievous at the recent MCM Comic Con in London. The cosplayer does a great job of hiding his real arms and legs. Unless that actually IS General Grievous just PRETENDING to be a cosplayer dressed as General Grievous. Stranger things have happ... / Continue →

    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 →
