PREVIEW: Rucka & Sharp's "Wonder Woman: Rebirth" Brings Epic Action
Before you set out in your official Legend of Zelda cosplay hoodie to rescue that Princess (or Prince), you may want to make sure you have the right weapons and accessories for the quest. Because, y’know, it’s dangerous to go alone.
First there was the licensed “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt, and soon cosplayers will be able to get their hands on a bat and comically oversized mallet, just like the ones Harley Quinn wields in the Suicide Squad movie.
Well, not just like. They’re part of Factory Entertainment’s SWAT (“Soft Weapons and Tactics”) line, which also includes plush replicas of Batman’s Batarang and Wonder Woman’s sword and shield from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Attending a comic convention dressed as a Redshirt from Star Trek is, y’know, fine but not exactly inspired. But attending a convention dressed as a Redshirt, and then posing with other cosplayers as they “kill” you over and over again? Genius!
That’s what Timothey Adam did last weekend at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, recruiting cosplayers dressed as characters ranging from Batman and Harley Quinn to Chewbacca and the War Boys to put that Star Trek trope to the test.
There are a lot of terrific Star Wars cosplayers, but few have fully embraced their characters as Victor and Julianne.
Calling themselves “The Real Finn and Rey,” the Utah couple makes the perfect, well, Finn and Rey from The Force Awakens, going so far as to bring Baby-8 — the only thing more adorable than the actual BB-8.
We’ve seen Dragon Ball fans take to the convention floor and even the streets of Taipei on their own versions of the Flying Nimbus, and now one Goku-clad skateboarder recently turned heads in Santa Barbara, California, atop a rolling yellow cloud.
To commemorate the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con, Mythbusters alum Adam Savage decided he’d go incognito as Hellboy, in a nod to his first appearance at Comic-Con International. But while he dressed as the movie Hellboy in 2008, this time he paid tribute to Mike Mignola’s original version.
Of course, Savage has a few advantages over the average cosplayer: In addition to his background as a model maker, he owns several pieces from Guillermo del Toro’s films, including the Samaritan, a duster jacket and one of Hellboy’s tail.
This time, however, Elizabeth’s Belle is no longer a Jedi but rather a gold-clad Mandalorian bounty hunter sent to track down a certain Wookiee — a certain really tall Wookiee. “The bounty said to KILL THE BEAST,” she writes, “but I had other plans …”
The Dark Knight and the Galactic Empire come together in this one incredible helmet, created for a good cause.
Sanctioned by Lucasfilm, the Biker Scout Helmet Project invites prop makers, effects artists and cosplayers from across the globe to design custom Star Wars Scout Trooper helmets, to be auctioned for charity. What you see here is Julian Checkley‘s Batman-themed “Wayne Industries (Applied Sciences Division) Advanced Pursuit Helmet,” which organizers say “blew us away.”
Batman has a keen mind, impressive skills and a sweet ride, but he’s nothing without his utility belt. OK, maybe not nothing, but his costume would look pretty weird without it.
In the latest episode of DIY Prop Shop, host Odin Abbott sets out to make a replica of the Dark Knight’s utility belt — but not just any one. No, this is the belt from the 1989 Tim Burton film. “I like that belt because it has more of a comic-book feel to it,” Abbott explains.
In a photo series by Yapcweng, Punival’s Gundam stands at attention alongside Mikuen as both Sayla Mass and Feldt Grace.
The climate in Hyrule changes drastically from region to region, which means if you plan to rescue the Princess, you better come dressed for the occasion. Say, in an official Legend of Zelda hoodie.
While we’ve seen a handful of sweatshirts based on Link’s tunic, few are as nice-looking as this Zelda: Hero of Hyrule cosplay hoodie from Merchoid.
The only thing more frightening than the 46-foot Female Titan from Attack on Titan is, well, the 200-foot Colossal Titan. But beyond that? It’s undoubtedly tiny twin Female Titans, because they’ll disarm you with their cuteness and then, in all likelihood, devour you.
Twin sisters Chihiro and Chieko are little cosplay powerhouses who dressed as Female Titans on Saturday at Long Beach Comic Expo, where they posed for plenty of photos and even (adorably) battled members of the Survey Corps. They followed that Sunday by dressing as Sisters of Plenitude from Doctor Who.
Based on the costume worn by Jor-El (Russell Crowe) in the 2013 film, the leather armor — yes, that’s leather — features the mind-blowing detail we’ve come to expect from Lee. Note the intricate work on the “S” emblem (“On my world it means ‘Hope'”), the layered shoulder pieces (I guess they’re called spaulders?), and a helmet that looks somehow both delicate and formidable.
It was inevitable that the Internet’s raison d’être (funny cat photos) would cross paths with our current obsession (Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool), but we’re just glad we were around to witness it. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce … Catpool.
Kylo Ren may have caused a stir with his distinctive, if perhaps impractical, crossguard lightsaber, but that’s nothing compared to Belle’s three-pronged candelabra blades. Or is that called a Lumière-saber?
Cosplayer Elizabeth Rage wields her elegant weapon for a more civilized age alongside Amber Arden as Sith Snow and Reagan Kathryn as Reypunzel in these photos of their terrific Disney/Star Wars mashup cosplay.
