    Because Guardians of the Galaxy is the hot shit right now (I've seen it 14 times already because I live in the sewers below a movie theater like a cross between a ninja turtle and the Phantom of the Opera), this is the Groot costume made by Calen Hoffman of Propcustomz. Clearl... / Continue →

    This is the Magneto helmet made by twins and cosplayers Alexandra and Evgenia. It has neodymium magnets embedded under a fiberglass outer so you can stick metal things to it for storage. Now -- are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Probably not." I'll put the helmet on, then ... / 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 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 →

    These are the results of a group of friends' $5 cosplay contest. They each went to the dollar store and had to buy everything they needed to make a costume for less than five bucks. As you can see, everybody did a pretty good job. Except Iron Man. I suspect he spent $2 on t... / 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 video of street performer NOLATron showing off his humanoid Bubblebee form before transforming into a little electric-wheel powered Cadillac Escalade and rolling out. I've actually known about these costumes forever, and I swear I've even posted one of before, but I ... / Continue →

    Six months in development, this is the Doctor Zoidberg costume created by the folks of Tested.com and debuted at WonderCon 2014. Those wiggling mouth tentacles -- those are the things nightmares are made out of. I'm kidding, nightmares are made from the pure daydreams of chil... / Continue →

    This is Bat-Llama, who was recently strutting his ass at the Indiana State Fair (somebody buy me a funnel cake). This picture leaves me with so many unanswered questions. Mostly about the kind of life his owner leads. I guarantee the craziest cat lady in the world has got no... / Continue →

    This is DeviantARTist leafeon-ex's dog cosplaying in the Umbreon costume she made her. Man, I would love for a wild one of those to appear. As long as it didn't try to bite me. If it tried to bite me I'm not sure what I'd do, but I suspect it would involve getting bitten. S... / Continue →

    This is a selection of Anucha "Cha" Saengchart's low cost cosplay outfits. They actually look a lot more like no-cost cosplay outfits. Anucha runs a Facebook page called Lowcost Cosplay, which is filled with even more costumes. He definitely has a knack for capturing the ess... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the Caterpillar P5000 Power Loader costume from the original Aliens movie that father Carsten Riewe built for him and his daughter (previously: this one). It took him 100 hours to complete. That's a lot of time hanging out in the garage. Me? I love ... / Continue →

    These are a handful of shots (and a video) taken by photographer Rocio Preciado of 12-year old Chewbacca the dachshund playing with his friends Han Solo and Darth Vader. Wait -- Darth Vader? Darth Vader doesn't have friends. If anything, Darth Vader only has frenemies who ar... / Continue →

    This is a series of women dressed as male characters from the Hobbit as photographed by Russian artist Alexander Turchanin. They're all really good, plus strangely erotic. Jk jk, there's nothing strange about it, they're ONLY erotic. Thankfully, they didn't include a Gollum ... / Continue →

    Seen here flanked by a Stormtrooper, Starcraft medic and Bumblebee (it just makes sense), Zhao Ming proposes to his girlfriend dressed as Predator. Why? No clue, the article I read said he just wanted a novel way to propose to his girlfriend. Oh, I know -- a hodgepodge of no... / Continue →

    This is the set of dragon bone armor made by Redditor Starkfelt17. Me? I haven't felt 17 since I was 17. Although I did feel 19 a couple weekends ago when a friend produced a tray of Jello shots from the fridge. Obviously, the costume isn't real dragon bone because real dra... / Continue →

    To celebrate 30 years in the costume business (and score some free advertising) this is an infographic created by Spirit Halloween showing the most popular pop-culture costume they've sold each year for the past three decades. Most of them aren't that surprising. The Snooki a... / Continue →

    Because some family has to be the best family in the neighborhood, this is Redditor Deconstructress and her family's group 'Labyrinth' Halloween costumes. You are jealous right now. I am jealous right now. Who do these people think they are, the perfect family? God -- they ... / Continue →

    This is the New 52 Joker face prosthetic and makeup design by the Cinema Makeup School. He looks terrifying. Could you imagine waking up from a bad dream and having that standing over your bed? Man, it would suck for your dad to be the Joker. "At least you'd have one." Alw... / Continue →

    This is the Death Star painted on a lady's butt. I'm not sure if she did it herself in the mirror or if somebody helped. I'm also not sure why it's painted on both cheeks. Maybe one is supposed to be a front view and the other a back view. I don't know, I don't what the hel... / Continue →
