Waid Assembles Big Stories for "All-New All-Different Avengers"
Samuel Lee of Prince Armory is behind such mind-blowing costume and armor creations as the medieval versions of The Joker, Loki and Darth Vader. Now he’s back, this time with a gorgeously detailed Asgardian Iron Man.
The one-of-a-kind suit, made from leather, with brass hardware, isn’t for sale, but he’s always willing to discuss custom orders. However, you may need to have Tony Stark-sized bank account to afford it.
The next time Bruce Wayne is hurled into the far-flung past (come on, you know there’s going to be a next time), he may want to invest in one of these: a medieval-style Batman cowl, ideal for the battlefield.
The piece was created by William Selby over the course of three days using 720 scales. There’s no word whether he plans to make the rest of the suit, but that would definitely come in handy if Batman were to come face to face with, say, this terrifying medieval Joker.
Although fans who preordered Batman: Arkham Knight have to wait another two weeks to play as Harley Quinn, this cosplayer already has the character down pat.
Going by the name dreamhunter707, the Polish cosplayer is the spitting image of the hit game series’ latest take on the fan-favorite antiheroine, from the patent-leather corset to the tights to the candy-striped club. She almost looks like a screenshot from the game.
It seemed like a good idea at the time. When 40-year-old Star Wars fan George Cross bought a Stormtrooper costume, he thought it would be fun to show it off around the neighborhood in Lynn, Massachusetts, and surprise students at an elementary school. What could possibly go wrong?
Cross quickly found out.
There’s certainly good Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cosplay — ones that don’t involve hastily applied green body paint — but few rise to the level of “great.” Maybe that’s because so many fans dress as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello, with the occasional Shredder thrown in for good measure.
But not Baback Moussavi of Diffuse Moose Creations, who’s expanded his Turtles repertoire to include a truly masterful Master Splinter, one that wouldn’t be out of place on a film set. The amount of detail is amazing, right down to the gnarly hands. Er, paws.
If we’ve learned anything from two decades of Power Rangers, it’s that Rita Repulsa can ruin just about any occasion, from a first date to a parade to a picnic. So why take a risk with something as important as a wedding?
Ensuring that Goldar, Baboo and Squatt wouldn’t show up to spoil their special day, bride and groom Nawwal and Ameerul enlisted the Power Rangers to stand guard at their ceremony, held Saturday in Rawang, Malaysia. Ameerul in his navy suit and Nawwal in her white gown passed between the eight superpowered sentinels as they walked down the aisle; they also accompanied the couple to their reception, keeping a lookout for any signs of Rita and her minions.
If exposure to gamma radiation just seems too risky, you can still have the body of the Incredible Hulk without running onto a government test range (stupid Rick Jones).
Flex Design Costumes offers a series of full-body muscle suits that includes the Mega Muscle Suit that can give you that hulking physique, if not the associated super-strength. Anger-control issues, presumably, are sold separately. The suit comes in a range of colors, but I imagine green is the big seller, even at a wallet-smashing $3,499.
I never expected a stormtrooper, a Tusken Raider and the spy Garindan could make me misty-eyed, but then I saw these heartwarming portraits — yes, heartwarming! — of members of the 501st Legion: Capital City Garrison posing with adoptable animals.
The three cosplayers donated their time on May 4, Star Wars Day, to help the Ottawa Human Society try to find homes for some adorable-looking cats, dogs, guinea pigs and a rabbit.
Reaction to Jared Leto’s tattooed Joker from Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad has been decidedly mixed, but cosplayer Mary (aka SuperMaryFace) embraced the new look in a series of photographs by James Gilstrap.
With the help of makeup artist Devan Weitzman, Mary is transformed into the Clown Prince of Crime for an image set that’s both fun and unsettling while channeling the spirit of the original photograph posted by director David Ayer.
With Daredevil renewed for a second season, Netflix and Marvel may be looking for a way to expand the series into a franchise. Allow us to suggest a kid-friendly spinoff, starring 3-year-old Parker as the guardian of Hell’s Preschool.
The son of John Nettles of City Light Studio, Parker is simultaneously fearsome and cute as a button as Daredevil in this terrific series of cosplay photos taken by his father.
It’s not every Sunday afternoon that you walk down the street and bump into nearly a dozen people dressed as assorted Spider-characters, from Mary Jane Watson and Spider-Girl to Venom and Carnage. However, CBR contributor Alexa Tomaszewski was leaving work yesterday in Toronto — it wasn’t even a convention weekend! — and stumbled upon what could’ve been mistaken for the cast of Marvel’s “Spider-Verse” storyline.
Never let it be said The Joker isn’t the sentimental type. After all, he maintains a trophy wall, as depicted in a 2005 commission by Brian Bolland. With a lot of work, and some help from friends, cosplayer Anthony Misiano (aka Harley’s Joker) has brought that illustration to life in an unnerving homage.
“Believe it or not, altogether roughly 45 photos were used in the final composition, 16 of which just for the Joker alone,” Misiano wrote on Facebook. “You’d never guess how much work really does go into it all.”
While there are undoubtedly some fans willing to argue about who would win in a fight between the god of thunder and the Sentinel of Liberty (no contest!), there’s little debating how amazing this Thor-versus-Captain America cosplay photo shoot is.
Photographed by Adrian Gibbs, the series stars Sharon Rose as Captain America and Kayley Marie as Thor, who stand ready for a clash of uru and vibranium. The details on both costumes are incredible, but I particularly like Cap’s shield.
While some students play video games or merely hang out in their spare time, Philadelphia University’s Jackson Gordon always has bigger things in mind, including the designs for the functional Batsuit he debuted two weeks ago at Katsucon.
Gordon, an industrial design student, told USA Today his suit can handle anything short of a bullet: punches, machetes, baseball bats, the works. While designing the suit, he made sure it wouldn’t inhibit movement, which he is more than happy to demonstrate with a few moves he picked up while earning his black belt in kung fu.
Inspired by the release of the trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man, designer Stefanos Anagnostopoulos set out to design a helmet like the one Paul Rudd wears in the film, and to do it in a day. What took him 10 hours to design required a staggering 50 hours to print on 3D prints, but you can’t really argue with the results.
