Halloween is the one time of year that most people actually cosplay. But making your own costume from scratch is actually a lot of work. So there’s a whole industry dedicated to making costumes for you... with mixed results. Here are the trashiest and most WTF costumes for 2015.
There are many reasons to identify with Elsa from Frozen. For one thing, her hair game is sick; for another, she's a strong female character who don't need a snowman. Kirsty Taylor, however, identifies with Elsa for more personal reasons: The character's battle with her inner demons helped Taylor fight her own…
What an amazing year for cosplay! Hot dam,n you are all so talented and clever and creative it almost makes us mad. But we love you and all the great cosplay we saw this year. So as a tribute, here is a collection of our favorite cosplay moments from 2014.
Happy Halloween, people! Tonight is the night — so paint on the makeup and get out your lattes and brooms, you Basic Witch. Here are the most jaw-dropping Halloween costumes we've found posted on the Internet this year.
Attendees at this week's New York Comic Con have been pleasantly greeted with large and clear signs that declare "Cosplay Is Not Consent" and ask individuals to refrain from touching or photographing others without asking first.
If you noticed more exciting nerd news hitting the Internet than usual this weekend, that's because San Diego Comic Con was underway. But forget about Wonder Woman and Mad Max for a minute, because one of the biggest stories coming out of the con has been the increasingly loud pushback against sexual harassment.
Bang-A-Rang-yelling Baby Rufio from Hook is absolutely the cutest cosplayer we've spotted at Comic-Con thus far. All other babies should go home.
There is some serious cognitive dissonance between costume companies desire to sell costumes to women, and their understanding of what women are - their understanding of fictional women at least.
It seems like lately the Halloween stores are full of "sassy" costumes or sexy spins on random staples (yep that's a "sexy" Michael Myers outfit). Hey, not that there's anything wrong with that, but what about championing the real heroes every once in a while? Writer and activist Suzanne Scoggins is helping "Take…
We caught actor Nicki Clyne at New York Comic-Con in her FULL Callandra Tyrol uniform. Yes, people, that is the actual suit she wore for Ron D. Moore's Battlestar Galactica.
OOGO is a new regular post of fandom rambling from the internet's number one weird uncle other than Gary Busey. The topics will vary, the names may be changed to protect the innocent/ridiculous. Do not taunt OOGO.
If your guinea pig routinely dashes off into armed combat (or just likes the look of scale mail), you might want to outfit him or her in this handsome suit of armor, perfect for rolly-polly rodents.
Pictures of costumed fans were being sold on giant body pillows, without the cosplayers' consent. Can you even imagine the horror of seeing a stranger lugging a giant pillow — with your back side printed on the back? Luckily, the company behind these pillows tells io9 they've agreed to stop selling them.
Last month, science geek and costumer Emily Finke attended a sci fi convention dressed in a screen-accurate uniform from Star Trek: TOS, where she was met with microaggression, mock-concern and men intent on outing her as a Fake Geek Girl. So she decided to write something, "because I haven't caused enough flame wars…
This is amazing. British fans proved that they're still completely bonkers, with this parade of canine cosplay. Including a Superman dog, a Darth Vader dog... and a totally adorable dog cosplaying as K-9, the robot dog from Doctor Who. (Awwwwww.)
The new, gritty Batman movies are fine, but there’s one thing that they were all sorely lacking: composer Danny Elfman’s theme music. Also, a very BDSM Catwoman suit. Oh, and batsuits with nipples, clearly an innovation born out of late 90s sartorial decadence. If you thought Sonya Belosouva’s Walking Dead…
Get ready for some The Walking Dead-style chills and thrills as the masterful Sonya Belosouva bangs out the show's theme song. Unfortunately, she's also clueless and doesn't realize she's surrounded by the flesh-eating undead. Better run, girl!
