I Would Run Away From This Demogorgon, Costume Or Not

Praises For Shuri And Ms. Marvel Kid’s Costumes And Wasp’s Sexual Costume

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.

Russian Cosplayer Warhammer 40K Cosplay Is Absolutely Gorgeous

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

Artist Created A Sloth Costume That Is Life-like, I Thought It Was A Giant Sloth

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.

These Inflatable Dino Costumes Are Official Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Merchandises. Believe It

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.

This Is How Ladies In Steampunk World Should Dress Like

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

Someone Has Taken Overwatch Cosplay To The Next Level With A Mech Suit

I am sure you have seen D.Va of Overwatch being cosplayed the world over, but you probably haven’t seen the best D.Va yet. The best is not the person having the best figure, although that could be plus, but the best is one that not only ‘drives’ her mech and roam around a convention. That is the best, if not the greatest D.Va cosplayer to date. Anywho, a D.Va mech suit is exactly what accomplished props and armor builder by the handle of Gryphon’s Gears made. Armed with the actual 3D model from the game and six weeks later, a 7-foot tall, 50 pounds mech suit was born and it was quite a sight to behold. And it is a refreshing change from the horde of Iron Man cosplay. Continue reading Someone Has Taken Overwatch Cosplay To The Next Level With A Mech Suit

DIY Wolverine Claws Gives You Wolvie’s Claws Without Breaking Your Skin

You know, every time Logan, AKA Wolverine, unleash his life-taking appendages, he feels pain because popping out those adamantium-coated razor-sharp claws would means breaking his skin from the inside out. Every. Single. Time. With that being said, why would you yourself through the agony like Logan did. I mean, seriously, you don’t have healing ability and there’s no Apocalypse or Magneto to deal with, therefore flesh-slicing blades are not necessary. Besides, you’d be inviting trouble when every time you need pass through security checks. I understand the cool factor and all, but really, you don’t have to. Just shell out a petty sum of $17.90 and you’ll get yourself a set of DIY Logan X-Men Wolverine Automatic Claws like Logan, but less the pain. Problem solved. Continue reading DIY Wolverine Claws Gives You Wolvie’s Claws Without Breaking Your Skin

The day when you dress to kill (not literally, though some do… just saying) is upon us again and if you are still brooding over what to dress up as, how does a life-size LEGO minifigure sounds? Well, it may not scare away ghosts that roam the Earth on this day, but it will certainly turn heads. Anywho, if you are huge fan of LEGO, maybe you should and the good news is, from the looks of it, it should be a not-so-costly getup and relatively easy to cobble together.
