How Cosplayers Are Helping Our Front Liners With Handmade Masks

How Cosplayers Are Helping Our Front Liners With Handmade Masks

There is a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment available to most healthcare workers in the USA, and an unlikely ally has stepped up to help out those who need PPE's to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Cosplayers from across America have started making cloth masks, and 3-D printed PPE's, to help hospitals and medical […]

Looking To Dress Up As Harley Quinn For Galentines Day

Looking To Dress Up As Harley Quinn For Galentine's Day?

With Birds of Prey out in theaters, it's time to ask the important question: What will you be wearing to celebrate Galentine's Day this week? If you've been watching the previews, you probably noticed the colorful and fun costumes as worn by Harley Quinn. Since her theatrical debut in Suicide Squad, I've been largely impressed […]

Kevin Feige-Authorized Iron Man Cosplay is Bulletproof and Can Fly

Kevin Feige-Authorized Iron Man Cosplay is Bulletproof and Can Fly

As comic book fans, we've all seen this kind of thing coming, from a long ways off. The tendency for life to imitate art, for science fiction to drive real innovation, and the desire on everyone's part to emulate their heroes from time to time was always going to converge in a place like this.  […]

Update Jan 14th: Added information about Toyotome's bail amount and his arrest sheet.

We've looked over a couple different products from Volante Design last month, but we saved one of the best for last as we get into winter months. The final item we have for review form the company is this awesome looking Augment J3 jacket in black and purple. But how well does it hold up […]

Cosplay Matriarch, Alamo City Comic Con Apologize for Blackface Controversy

Alamo City Comic Con and Laura Lara have apologized for controversy sparked at the convention's annual cosplay contest. Lara's son Travis "MC CyaNide" Lara hosted the contest apparently while wearing blackface (a photo of the costume can be seen here).

Wise In-Vest-Ment: We Review the Automata Vest from Volante Design

Wise In-Vest-Ment: We Review the Automata Vest from Volante Design

So now that we've reviewed the Talon Bracers from Volante Design, it's time to up the ante a little with some proper gear, starting with the Automata Vest. This this is absolutely amazing at first glance, but how does it handle as far as being a fully functional and stylish piece of clothing? We have it […]

Getting a Grip: We Review Volante Designs Talon Bracers

Getting a Grip: We Review Volante Design's Talon Bracers

Back at E3, we came across a very cool company in the South Hall that caught our eye, as we saw some amazing clothing from Volante Design. The company makes, as they describe it, superhuman streetwear. This is the kind of gear you could wear at a convention to cosplay, but could also wear around […]

Dragon Con: A Violent Delight of Westworld Cosplay

Dragon Con: A Violent Delight of Westworld Cosplay

There were many guesses as to what "the costume" of Dragon Con was going to be this year, and almost no one picked Westworld. But obviously, enough fans DID pick Westworld, as this fabulous 'violent delight' of cosplay courtesy of Annette Wamser (of Wamser Photography) will show. Our particular favorite is the Delos cleaning crew with the […]

Black Geeks of Dragon Con: Fandom Comes in All Shades

Black Geeks of Dragon Con: Fandom Comes in All Shades

Fandom comes is all colors, shades, nationalities, sexes, and peoples, especially at Dragon Con, which takes place over Labor Day weekend annually in Atlanta, Georgia.  The gathering of the Black Geeks of Dragon Con is one of [literally] hundreds of planned and organized cosplay photoshoots that happen during the convention, and this year it was particularly […]

Dragon Con: This Judgement of Dredd *IS* The Law

Dragon Con: This Judgement of Dredd *IS* The Law

Nothing like turning a corner during Dragon Con and coming face-to-face with an impressive armored collection of "The Law"- a Judgement of Dredd. We're still workshopping that collective noun too, but, anytime you see a group of Judge Dredd cosplayers all together, it can be intimidating. Scowls and leather are the name of the game […]

Dragon Con: A Habit of Handmaids Under His Eye

Dragon Con: A Habit of Handmaids, Under His Eye

Even though Hulu's award-winning series The Handmaid's Tale isn't your typical convention fare, the red cloak and white bonnets were everywhere at Dragon Con this year. We're thinking the collective noun of handmaids is a habit, but we're still work shopping that. This collection of photos comes to us from Kristen Schlicht, who very kindly is […]

A Raid of Vikings Invade During Dragon Con 2018

A Raid of Vikings Invade During Dragon Con 2018

History's Vikings continues to be a favorite for group cosplay at Dragon Con over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta Georgia, and 2018 was no different. Since the very first season of the series, there have been large groups who gather in their chainmaille and leather to form shield walls all over the host hotels at the convention. […]

Dragon Con: Orville Cosplay Crew Invades Star Trek 10 Forward Party

Dragon Con: 'Orville' Cosplay Crew Invades Star Trek 10 Forward Party

There is an ongoing joke that somehow, FOX series The Orville is an official part of the Star Trek universe. It makes sense really, kind of the same way that Galaxy Quest is often the answer to the question "What's your favorite Star Trek movie?" In this case, a group of Orville crew cosplayers invading the Star Trek-themed party […]
