Brian Bolland’s ‘Joker trophy wall’ brought to unsettling life

joker trophy wall2

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.”

Harvey Birdman meets ‘Birdman’ in note-perfect parody video

harvey-birdman

It must be soul-crushing for a cosplayer to spend massive amounts of time and energy to create the perfect costume, only for no one to recognize who they are. As one Harvey Birdman cosplay discovers in this animated parody by Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez, it’s enough to trigger an existential crisis.

Captain America vs. Thor in a spectacular cosplay photo shoot

thor-cap4

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.

Design student creates functional Batsuit

Batsuit1

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.

This incredible 3D-printed Ant-Man helmet is no small feat

ant-man helmet1

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.

Deadpool looks for love in surprisingly charming ‘Kiss Me’ video

deadpool-kiss

By all rights, a video of a guy in a Deadpool costume walking around on Valentine’s Day with a sign that reads “Kiss Me, I’m Deadpool” should have been creepy. However, the affable D-Piddy, who’s starred as the Merc With a Mouth in more than 50 of these videos, is able to make it downright charming.

This Darth Vader medieval armor is impressive, most impressive

medieval-vader1-cropped

Prince Armory, which created that unnerving Joker armor and the breathtaking Loki armor, has gone medieval on a galaxy far, far away, unveiling a version of Darth Vader that’s both beautiful and frightening.

Jokingly referred to as the “Darth Knight,” the custom mask, helmet and suit are made of leather. If you want other details, like, say, the price, you’ll have to contact Prince Armory. However, I imagine it’ll cost you … and they don’t accept Republic Dataries.

Mr. Incredible convicted in Hollywood Boulevard attack on Batgirl

hollywood-bvd

Mr. Incredible is headed into anger-management classes.

You may recall that, in October, a camera captured video of a brawl on Hollywood Boulevard between Batgirl and Mr. Incredible that drew in Chewbacca, Waldo, Freddy Krueger in a cracked-mirror version of Disney Infinity. Mr. Incredible was shown fighting with Batgirl and slamming her to the ground.

Comics A.M. | Cosplaying ‘gunmen’ arrested on way to G-Anime

G-Anime

G-Anime

Crime | Two cosplayers on their way to G-Anime were arrested Friday in Gatineau, Quebec, and their fake weapons were confiscated. The two men, who were wearing camouflage and carrying what appeared to be guns, were spotted in a parking lot near a number of government buildings (the Canadian Parliament was attacked by a lone gunman in October). Someone called the police, and they dispatched about a dozen officers who cordoned off the area and searched for the men. The cosplayers, who were both 18, were taken into custody and fined $270 for violating a municipal bylaw that prohibits carrying certain weapons in public or in a vehicle, although the law seems to be aimed at knives, bows and arrows, and swords, not guns. Their car was impounded, and their weapons are being held as evidence. G-Anime organizers posted a notice Friday asking attendees wearing camouflage or carrying replica weapons to wait until they arrive a the convention to change into costumes. [Ottawa Sun]

comiket87

Comiket attracted a reported 560,000 attendees over the course of three days (Sunday to Tuesday), according to Anime News Network. That’s a record for the winter edition of the biannual event — it’s held in August and December — but about 30,000 shy of the all-time high set in summer 2013.

Held at the massive Tokyo Big Sight, the 39-year-old Comiket (aka Comic Market) is the largest comics festival in the world (Lucca Comics & Games is second, with paid attendance of about 240,000).

Photo of the Day | The greatest (or worst) Pikachu cosplay ever

pokemon cosplay2

As the headline states, this may be the absolute worst or the most inspired Pikachu cosplay in history, Really, it could go either way, likely depending to some extent on your fondness for the Greendale Human Being.

The photos — yes, there are more, below — were snapped at Comiket 87, which wrapped up today at the Tokyo Big Sight. Held twice annually, in August and December, Comiket (aka Comic Market) is the world’s largest dojinshi fair, drawing more than a half-million attendees. This edition opened Sunday with 180,000 people, an increase of about 10,000 from the first day of August’s Comiket 86.

The ‘X-Men Epic Cosplay Video’ is, well, pretty epic

distractotron

Distractotron has released the appropriately titled “X-Men Epic Cosplay Video,” featuring a wide range of Marvel’s mutant — and mutant-adjacent characters — from Archangel and Scarlet Witch to Omega Red and Apocalypse. There are even anti-mutant protestors, and I’m pretty sure I spotted Doug Ramsey.

Shot at DragonCon by Blake Faucette, Justin Reich and Micah Moore, it includes animation by Reich, and a lot of slow-motion effects. Fair warning: The confrontation between the Beast and Toad is the stuff of nightmares. Don’t believe me? Just look below …

The Joker’s wild in these wonderful cosplay photos

joker3

These incredible photos of cosplayer Dark Incognito as a female Joker — rather than Harley Quinn or Duela Dent — makes me wish DC Comics has used the New 52 as an opportunity to introduce a Clown Princess of Crime. The shakeup to the decades-old dynamic with Batman could’ve been fascinating.

Check out some of the photos below, and even more in the galleries of Dark Incognito and photographer Akami.

Not-so-puny god: Medieval Loki burdened with glorious armor

medieval-loki1-cropped

Earlier this year we showcased the gloriously terrifying medieval-style Joker armor, but this is the first I’ve time I’ve seen the gorgeously detailed Medieval Loki, commissioned from the same company Prince Armory.

The wearer’s Facebook page states only that, “I am Loki, of Asgard … but son to no Asgardian,” but you can see plenty of photos of him in both his armor and his more casual trickster-wear.

Joker and Harley Quinn tie the knot in costume-filled fan wedding

harley-joker4

Last year we showcased photos from a Batgirl- and Nightwing-themed wedding, so it’s only fair for us to give a couple of Gotham City rogues equal time.

“So I married Joker on Saturday,” user MCAddict writes on imgur, where she shares photos of herself (with a classic Batman logo tattoo) dressed as Harley Quinn and the groom decked out in purple and green. The wedding party was a mix of the expected (Catwoman, The Riddler, Poison Ivy and Bane) and the slightly puzzling (Wolverine, Wonder Woman and Mario).

More surprising still: Batman officiated the ceremony. Check out some of the photos below, and even more at imgur.
