Originally, the idea of dressing up in costumes for Halloween is to scare away supernatural or folkloric beings, but it has since evolved to, well, anything goes. As far as children goes, it is about cuteness and the ability to grab sweet treats. Add a dash of today’s need for political correctness, you have the Internet praising children’s costumes inspired by two super heroines of color: Kamala Khan, the Marvel’s first Muslim character whose alter ego is Ms. Marvel (whose superpower is “polymorph”) and the genius Shuri from Black Panther movie.

I can’t believe no one dresses up as Han Solo… in Carbonite for Comic-Con and Halloween. Or maybe there were? I can’t say for sure. Anywho, in case you are a Star Wars fan and wanted to dress up as a different kind of Solo (a less than suave Solo, that is), then you may want to give the Inflatable Han Solo Carbonite Costume a thought. It works like the inflatable dinosaurs, but this particular item from Rubie’s Costume Company is, obviously, not a dino. Continue reading You Can Now Dress Up As Han Solo In Carbonite Thanks To This Inflatable
The time is ripe to recap the many Marvel cosplays that appeared at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and we think the best greatest cosplay would be the human-size Infinity Gauntlet. Make no mistake here. We are not talking about a life-size space glove here; we are talking about a person dressed up as the sought-after gauntlet. Continue reading The Greatest Cosplay At SDCC Was This: A Human-size Infinity Gauntlet
Among the sea of cosplayers, it is often hard to get attention for the effort the cosplayers had put in. A handful did it anyways. Some did it with impressive (and sometimes, rather grotesque) cosplay, while others did it with life-like representation and for some, humor is the way to go. Cholo Thanos was one good example of humor. But nothing captures the hearts of convention goers and made everyone, including the Internet, goes Awwww… this is so sweet! than father and daughter cosplaying as Thanos and baby Gamora. What you see here is exactly that. Continue reading Thanos And Baby Gamora Cosplay Had The Internet Going Awwww…
Cosplay is about the effort a person puts in to the outfit. We love admiring the creativity of cosplayers. Sometime we admire them for the intricacy and attention to details. Sometimes we are amused by how accurate and true it is (like, you know, “gamer who has no real life” cosplay?) and sometimes, we love a parody of sort, such as this Thanos cosplay spotted at the recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con. Wait, that was a Thanos cosplay? Yes, it is, my friends, but it was Thanos from an alternate dimension – a Hispanic dimension, to be precise. Continue reading Cholo Thanos With Infinity Chancia Cosplay Is Absolutely Hilarious!
Here’s a visually spectacular, accurate cosplay of Warhammer 40K’s Saint Celestine by Russian cosplayer Polina Vishnevskaya. Impressive, but this cosplay and other like this, never failed to be of reality. How so? Well, simple. It reminds us that fantasy will always be fantasy because a person can’t be running around and expecting to fight off enemy when this cumbersome getup. Fact. No, wait. Saint Celestine isn’t human. So, I guess that makes it plausible. I think. Continue reading Russian Cosplayer Warhammer 40K Cosplay Is Absolutely Gorgeous
I can’t think of anyone who love sloth, let alone wanting to dress up as one for any costume party. But here we are, seeing a costume right before our eyes. Yes. This is a sloth costume and it is so life-like that, for a moment, I thought it was a real sloth. I grasped at the size of it. A human-size sloth! Alas, it isn’t a real sloth. It was a costume created by Berlin-based super talented costume designer, sculptor and prop maker Karoline Hinz. Continue reading Artist Created A Sloth Costume That Is Life-like, I Thought It Was A Giant Sloth
When it comes to movie merchandises, action figures, tees, posters et cetera are the norm, but costumes? Not so much. Official costumes do exist, but they are mostly costumes that make the wearer looks, you know, like the character in the movies who are mostly humans. However, these latest costumes relating to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom are out of the norm. They are not for you to cosplay as Christ Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, or Bryce Dallas Howard’s character. They are for you to look like the real stars of the show: the dinosaurs and oh, they are of the inflatable variety – just like the always lovable T-rex inflatable that so many have worn in conventions around the world. Continue reading These Inflatable Dino Costumes Are Official Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Merchandises. Believe It
Steampunk stories often depicts folks in Victorian-era getups which I never got to understanding why is it so. Modern day movie adaption of Julie Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days (Walt Disney Pictures, 2004)) directed by Frank Coraci is a good example. It was all about three-piece suits, corsets, hoops and petticoats made skirts with crinoline, and oh, lacy umbrellas for good measure. But really, wouldn’t you think that the fictional steampunk era should have getups that are, well, more steampunk-ish? I don’t know how that will turn out, or how those fashion should look like. I don’t even know how a steampunk tuxedo would look like, but now I may have some ideas what ladies might be wearing in the Victoria-ish steampunk-era and it may be something like this: Continue reading This Is How Ladies In Steampunk World Should Dress Like
Lets face it. However you try to up the firepower of your NERF guns, nothing will ever beat the barrage of Rival foam balls like a minigun does. Mini, what? Yes. You freaking heard that loud and clear. A NERF minigun. Obviously, Hasbro did not and probably will never roll out a NERF version Gatling gun, but someone actually did and that one person is YouTuber Captain Xavier. With the help of a few YouTubers, Captain Xavier has DIY-ed a NERF Rival Minigun that looks as good as it functions. Yes. It is totally functional, which makes it an awesome cosplay accessory too, as showcased by the man himself. Man, the getup is absolutely stunning.
