"Everything I have said or done is in the hands of God. I commit myself to Him! I certify to you that I would do or say nothing against the Christian faith." - Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc by Alice Lewis

"While most of our research was done through books we checked out a few movies for Alice to watch and learn about the battles and time period. The Messenger with Milla Jovovich was the closest we found to actual events but the spiritual parts were pretty dark and weird. Of course, Alice liked it a lot and it’s her new favorite movie. Joan of Arc with Leelee Sobieski is not even remotely accurate and ridiculously long and honestly maybe the worst movie I’ve ever seen and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy and every time you come across it you should kill it with fire just so that it would be a slightly more accurate representation of Joan’s life."

Nerd Caliber was on the scene at the recent Anime Boston 2014 when they came upon this guy. So cool. Make sure to watch until the end, when Batman activates his wings.

I think this is one of the best genderbent character cosplays I've seen.  At least, the costume makes me wish that this was an actual comic.  I think Hellboy would be a more interesting character with a sort of River Song-like personality.

Family: DC Steampunk

Steampunk DC by George Fairbairn

"Part of a longer. bigger personal project.  These are some amazing steampunk DC character cosplay people.  My bigger picture plan is a whole series of different cosplay, but the difference is going to be the "off duty" portion.  Keep your eyes peeled for that when it comes."

Video: Amazing Spider-Man Parkour

To celebrate last weekend's release of The Amazing Spiderman 2, stuntman Ronnie Street Stunts donned a Spiderman costume and hit the streets to perform parkour stunts.  Of course, this isn't Shalvis’ first rodeo. He’s suited up as Altair from the Assassin’s Creed video game series  a number of times as part of a series of parkour tutorial videos and even decked the halls as Santa.

Below is a video showing how all of these stunts were created, a making of video that is almost as impressive as the parkour, give the crew's used of remote control drone cameras.

Cosplay So Amazing It Doesn't Even Need Clothes

GEEKDOM: Cosplay grown into a mainstream hobby

Have you heard the kerfluffle surrounding Cherry City Comic Con? Basically an attendee asked for a refund because of the con’s sexist attitude toward cosplay, after which the con’s director, Mark Martin, mocked her on Facebook, both under his account and using a sockpuppet. Professionalism at its finest! We have links.
