Kids: Boo


Boo from Disney’s Monsters, Inc.

X23



Wolverine


Props: Big Daddy Gun



Designer Neil Taylor took the already seriously bad-ass NERF N-Strike Barricade Blaster toy and gave it a very colorful upgrade, transforming it into this wicked BioShock-inspired steampunk-style Big Daddy riffle. If you have US$300 burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy one for yourself from Taylor's Etsy store.

The Many Voices of Star Wars


Youtube user August Jeske impersonates the voices of 33 different Star Wars characters, including Yoda, Jabba the Hutt, and everyone’s most hated character, Jar Jar Binks, mimicking lines from the movies and throwing in a bit of his own commentary.

Props: Working Pipboy 3000


Youtube user MyMagicPudding created a replica of the wrist device seen in Fallout 3.
This is the first test of my attempt to build a working pipboy 3000, complete with fully functional controls just as depicted in the game. It consists of an HTC Desire HD as the screen and processor, and an Arduino Uno with a USB host shield running microbridge to act as an ADB host for the phone. The Arduino then sends button presses to the phone via TCP over USB. The casing is a cast made by Skruffy over at The RPF, it's amazing!

This is my Jack Skellington Cosplay that I wore at Otakuthon 2011! I wanted to make another um...creative costume. :"D I had to paint every line by hand...ha ha ha aawwww yeah 4 am squiggly lines.

Anyways, it was tons of fun to wear this!! I love the Nightmare Before Christmas. My friends did an amazing job with their costumes too so it made it even more fun to joke around with them!

My cosplay of Pixie, from the X-men which was premiered at C2E2 2011. She's apparently a very unloved character. This, like all my costumes was made completely by me. Except the ears! Which are from Ardanni. For more info on this or to commission me: peachykiki.com.

Real-Life Batman: Arkham City Costume

"Arkham Asylum Suit" by Batpirisss

This may well be the most amazing "home" made costume ever.  He doesn't quite have the physique to pull off the costume, but he sure gets an "A" for attention to detail. This photo gallery is nearly unbelievable. At first glance, I thought the photo above was a CG model.

"Wanted to show a project we completed recently. A group of us had been talking for years about what we always wanted to see done on screen for the Bat franchise. After the game design came out we decided to approach it with that end result in mind.
