Video: The Skeletal Man

Marco sent in this video, produced by Jeff Lowe, that showcases the 4 hours of outlineing and six hours of shading to create an entire skeleton on his back. Either he loves anatomy, or he is dead set on being one creepy s.o.b.

Principal in awesome Iron Man suit

I don't know about your high school graduation, but mine was kind of boring. If only I'd had a principal like THIS guy!

Video: Epic Anime Time

Yung Lee went to Anime North, gave a bunch of random, confused, bemused cosplayers a few choreography tips, and then edited the video into awesomeness. See below for the making of, and to show that yeah, he filmed all of this stuff on the spot, with cosplayers he’d never met before.

Pokemon Card Dress

Taken at Katsu Con in February 2011

Original character cosplay: costume is made of Pokemon cards, combining nerds' two greatest weaknesses: pretty girls and collectables!  (And how much does she look like Roxanne "Roxy" Richter from the Scott Pilgrim movie.)

Video: Garrus (Mass Effect 2)

Garrus (Mass Effect 2) costume made by Robert Rodgers of My Wicked Armor
"This Garrus project was a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. The costume has at least 75 LED’s on/in it! But the lighting is one of the things that attracted me to this costume. I especially enjoyed the eye gear. Photos and videos just do not capture how neat the eye piece looks. I think the whole costume requires nine 9V batteries if you want the lights to work for a few hours. Fortunately, the armor is very lightweight, including the massive chest piece which I designed to split into two pieces for shipping and transport. And I am aware that Garrus does not have a tail- I just forgot to attach the butt plate strap before the video."

Iron Man's Work Day

Wang Kang, a run-of-the-mill office dude working in Shanghai, had a dream: He wanted to go to work dressed as Iron Man. So one day, he woke up and started working on his costume, and 3 months later, he had a perfectly awesome-looking, 50-kilogram suit made from high density foam and wires, ready to terrorize his work colleagues. Check him out below as he walks through his office, ready to blast anyone away at the first offense.

You can see more work in progress pictures of the suit and his other projects at his website.

Steampunk Ash

Steampunk Ash (from Army of Darkness) by Clifton
Design by Atlanta cosplayer Matt Silva of Penny Dreadful Productions
I picked Ash Williams as a costume because I love the character – he is such an imperfect and unlikely hero. Unlike most modern protagonists, Ash doesn’t have mutant powers, insane martial arts skills, or magic weapons. Instead, Ash starts the series as a laid-back everyman who is constantly suffering from the Murphy’s law adage that “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” I think at one point or another, everyone has had a time in their life where it felt like something was out to get them. So I think you can’t help but empathize with Ash and relate to the choices he makes when faced with terrifying, undead adversity. Even when he is a relatively incompetent and ill-tempered jerk, you can’t help but love him because he’s been through it all, survived, and grown into a self-assured, badass demon slayer with a chainsaw-hand and fist full of boomstick. To some degree or another, I think we all secretly envision ourselves that way—I certainly do. As it turned out, sauntering around a convention with a chainsaw hand, an uplifted eyebrow, and a penchant for telling random women to “Give me some sugar, Baby” was a delightful way to bring one of my favorite characters to life.
