This is one of the most ridiculously adorable boy's costumes I've ever seen.  I seriously doubt that he's ever played the game his character is from, though.

Fan Film: The OMEn Chronicles

It's been two years since the last Harry Potter movie came out, but thanks to a filmmaker named Wren Weichman, fans get to return one last time in a fan made series called "The OMEn Chronicles." The series is set in the Harry Potter Universe fifteen years after the events of J.K. Rowling’s last book.

The series doesn't feature any familiar faces the books, but fans will recognize the spells being used by the new characters, even if this time around they're said with American accents. 
"In a world filled with magic, one mysterious person tries to keep a forgotten power safe from both the Officers of OMEn and the Evil forces wanting to corrupt it."

"After dreaming about bringing Warrior Wonder Woman to life for years, this shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts feels like the zenith of the project. The setting was perfect, the weather beautiful, and the photographer - Andrew Ho - incredibly talented. I actually felt like an Amazon at home on Themyscira. You can read my costume construction notes for Warrior Wonder Woman here."

Sorry for the tease. These aren't actually for sale. They're just concept art, but maybe, if enough of us write him about it, he'd launch a Kickstart campaign to raise the necessary licensing fees? Who knows.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the winner of Halloween 2013.
Everyone else may now go home.
"Hailey made an addition to her costume, glasses. Her dad wears glasses and she told me that she wants to be just like her daddy.

We had a great night and she trick or treated until I dropped. Her candy haul was more than enough candy for a three year old.

To top it off, instead of saying “trick or treat” she constantly yelled “Chimichanga!” In suburbia, nobody has any idea what dead pool is until a little girl comes knocking at their door and has to explain it to them, “He’s kind of like Spider-Man except usually he just laughs at Spider-Man because he is silly!”"

"This is infact Skywardsword Link on a horse. Yes. We are aware of the fact that there are no horses in this game but we still wanted to do this, as some sort of “5 years after they defeated Demise they found horsies” or something."

Kids: Thor

Twirling is her favorite part.

Tiny Princess Captain America finally outgrew her dress, so this Halloween, it was time for her long-promised Tiny Princess Thor! I think she might like this one better…it has a sparkly cape, after all. Also a hammer. (“What do you hit with the hammer at daycare, Tiny Princess Thor?” “*pause* I don’t know.” “Nothing! You hit nothing with the hammer!”) (She did not, in fact, hit anything with the hammer at daycare. Though she did cry when they had the kids change out of their costumes after their Halloween party, because she wanted to keep wearing her dress.) Tiny Princess Thor made by Bright Copper PennyHow to Make a Tiny Princess Superhero Dress.

Video: Hidden Blade

"Every other Monday, master swordsmith Tony Swatton forges your favorite weapons from video games, movies, and television. This week, he tackles the hidden blade from Assassin's Creed in time for the new release of Assassin's Creed 4."

Props: Hocus Pocus Spell Book

Holly Conrad of Crabcat Industries (as well as from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay) created a replica of Winifred Sanderson’s book from Hocus Pocus for a friend’s wedding. And I want it so bad. She sculpted, cast, and painted it while Hilary Grimes bound it into an actual book.

Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead) and Chloe Dykstra star in this funny Bioshock Infinite fan-made short called "Booker, Catch!" He was wearing this outfit during a few panels at Comic-Con this year. I've also seen him wearing it in a couple of other videos, so I'm wondering if he was just really busy shooting this stuff while he was in San Diego.
"Making his way through the floating city of Columbia, Booker DeWitt is a man on a mission! Luckily his ever helpful companion, Elizabeth, is always around to keep him stocked up on supplies, even if she might get a little overzealous with her throwing. Booker, Catch!"

Fan Film: Call of Duty: Final Hour

This short was directed by Jared Pelletier. It's set in World War II, and it packs an emotional punch. The story centers on a group of soldiers in a firefight on the battlefield, and things get intense for them.

Video: Lord of the Rings In Real Life

As a part of Improv Everywhere‘s silly Movies In Real Life series, the New York City based improv art group brought Lord of the Rings to Central Park’s iconic Bow Bridge. Well, just Gandolf saying his famous line, “You shall not pass,” but New Yorkers seemed to enjoy the gag none the less.
"For our latest mission we recreated the famous "You shall not pass!" scene from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, placing Gandalf the Grey on Central Park's iconic Bow Bridge. Rather than facing off against a Balrog as he did on the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, this time Gandalf faced an even more daunting foe, Central Park tourists. The tourists proved to be too powerful for Gandalf, as nearly every one was able to successfully pass."
