    This is the very impressive Rocket Racoon costume created by Shoko and Jérôme Cosplay (links to their Facebook with a bunch of work-in-progress shots). It took about a month to complete and my roommate just walked by and noted, "I'm not even a furry and I would hit that." He ... / Continue →

    This is a zombie dog costume. It's kind of morbid looking. They cost $16-$20 depending on the size and, based on the Amazon reviews, are incredibly poorly made and not worth the money. Still, I like the little brain hat. You know who it reminds me of? Rex from Fallout: New... / Continue →

    Dog owners Sue and Phillip Lauer dressed up their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono as Game of Thrones characters. This is the result -- The Pugs Of Westeros. Admittedly, they did a great job with the costumes. One time I tried to put a dress on my dog and she ate the bottom half. I... / 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 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 →

    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 →

    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 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 one of the custom made lion hats sold by Etsy shop Nestanest that makes your cat look like a little lion. And who hasn't dreamed of having a pet lion? Nobody whose dreams I want to hear about, that's for sure. Obviously, the hats will look best on an orange cat, but ... / Continue →
