    This is a video from ConnectiCon 2013 of voice actor Jim Cummings reading Darth Vader lines as both Winnie The Pooh and Darkwing Duck. It's pretty great. I just wish there was a way to mute the sound of the audience. I came here to hear Winnie The Pooh read Darth Vader's lin... / Continue →

    Logitech recently had this giant pixelated screen on display at their booth at Pax East. The display was made from 160 of their G810 Orion Spectrum RGB lit gaming keyboards and played a short 8-bit style love story for people to watch (which you can also watch after the jump i... / Continue →

    These are the Critical Hit Galaxy D20s available from ThinkGeek for $20, but only at 2016 conventions they attend. They flash blue when you roll a 20 which you would be able to see above if our content management system wasn't giving me trouble and I could upload a GIF. The i... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a little girl cosplaying as BB-8 at WonderCon 2016 last weekend. Precious, right? She doesn't seem to know what to do with all the people around her watching and taking pictures. I wouldn't either. I do not like crowds. If a bar or restaurant is cr... / Continue →

    This is the Zerg Hydralisk costume made and worn by cosplayer Dadboy (who clearly started having children entirely too young). That is some impressive work. "I have never wanted to have sex with a costume so bad in my life." Ahahahahhaha, WHAT?! Seriously I was thinking the... / Continue →

    This is a shot of an unknown cosplayer at an unknown convention (anybody recognize those walls?) wearing Majora's Mask, with the moon hovering overhead. You know, I remember when Majora's Mask first came out my parents were concerned I was too stupid to grasp the time-changing... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos of the PokeRangers, a group of Pokemon/Power Ranger mashup cosplayers who recently attended Otakon 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland. Who's your favorite? I like the Magikarp Ranger. When they all come together to form their giant mechanical Zord, what p... / Continue →

    Lincoln would not approve. To celebrate the city's upcoming G.I. Joe Collector's Convention, Springfield Illinois mayor J. Michael Houston presented Cobra Commander with a key to the city. You know, because why give it to the good guys? That would make too much sense. Jk jk... / Continue →

    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 →
