60+ Cool Pictures of Cosplay From WonderCon 2014

Friday, April 25th, 2014

WonderCon 2014 just rolled around and here are some of the hottest, cleverest and most fun costumes from the convention. If this isn’t enough to satisfy your cosplay craving though, we also have pictures from the last year’s convention, as well as tons of cosplay photos from Comic Con.

Comics:

DSCN3890

Here’s Black Widow looking fabulous as ever.

DSCN3821

Black Canary and her friend had some amazing legs. Anyone recognize the other gal?

DSCN4251

Here’s a recreation of the famous Superman Crisis cover.

DSCN4667

And here’s the winner of the DC comics prize at the masquerade.

DSCN3883

These costumes are all fun, but I simply love the Loki dress. I hunted her and Thor down through the whole convention to get this pic.

DSCN3899

I’ve seen a lot of Wonder Women costumes in my time, but this one by Callie Cosplay is by far the coolest.

DSCN3901

Oddly, while there were a lot of Winter Soldiers there, this was the only one I managed to get a picture of.

DSCN3837

You can’t go wrong with a little crossplay and this Lady Riddler and Joker were simply fantastic.

DSCN3862

I’m kind of hoping the next Arkham City game gives these two this type of bruiser look.

DSCN3789

It’s always great to see someone take a classic character in another direction and this Cat Woman and Harley Quinn did a great job making their dresses perfect for the villain’s ball.

DSCN3805

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a more traditional look like this Batman and Robin have.

DSCN3823

Since the convention was right next door to Disneyland, it only  made sense for Tony Stark to stop by and ride a few rides and grab an Iron Man Mickey hat before hitting the con floor.

DSCN3788

This would be quite the father/son crime fighting team.

comedian watchmen

Here’s a great take on the Comedian as a female.

DSCN3873

And this lovely Hawkgirl did a fantastic job with her costume -especially the wings.

DSCN3916

Lady Death’s skin was so white she almost seemed to glow in the dark.

Video Games:

DSCN3797

This is a great take on Valeera Sanguinar from WOW’s Hearthstone.

DSCN3833

And while I’ve seen a lot of Skyrim cosplay, I’ve never seen a Khajiit before.

DSCN3910

Mileena from Mortal Kombat was looking good.

DSCN4133

And the whole team of Castle Crashers looked fantastic.

DSCN4138

DSCN4145

DSCN4159

DSCN4194

Per the norm, Steve looked quite boxy.

DSCN4431

I wouldn’t want to mess with these two assassins for sure.

Cartoons:

DSCN3846

By far one of the most popular costumes of the entire convention was this Powdered Toast Man one. Just tell me you don’t want to grab his butt cheeks and go on a ride.

DSCN3857

This steampunk Ariel was quite fetching.

DSCN3860

But this battle-ready Ariel was a picture of badass.

DSCN3817

That being said, there’s nothing wrong with the classics and the sight of an Ursula in human form was a cool one indeed.

DSCN3790

There was a whole series of Playboy bunny Disney Princesses, but I only saw these two and a Jasmine later on.

DSCN4624

With the new movie coming out, Maleficent was an all-too-popular costume this year, and this masquerade version was one of the best I’ve seen.

DSCN3858

These two evil queens were quite a pair though.

DSCN4631

I’ve never seen an Ursula quite this wonderful before either.

DSCN3915

His name is Olaf and he likes warm hugs -except when they come from strangers who seem to attack him from nowhere, which seemed to happen to him quite a few times.

DSCN4391

I didn’t know what Hexadecimal was, but I was really impressed with the costume’s accuracy when I looked it up online -especially since her costume is made from duct tape.

DSCN3882

Of course, everyone loves a good Bumblebee costume.

TV:

DSCN3800

Melisande here looked absolutely fantastic.

DSCN4596

And Circe looked downright royal.

DSCN3786

I’ve seen plenty of Amy Pond’s before, but I’ve never seen one that looked this dead on.

DSCN3848

And this young Doctor was absolutely adorable -especially with a Dalek and TARDIS in tow.

Movies:

Deliciously Hairy: The Burt Reynolds Eclair

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

burt-reynolds-eclair-1

What’s sexier than Burt Reynolds? How about a nude Burt Reynolds on a delicious eclair? It’s like a hairy and sweet dream. This tasty treat is a creation of Lou Lou P’s Delights in Leeds and features not just any iconic image of Burt Reynolds, but his famous Cosmopolitan centerfold from the 70s.

By the way, that centerfold pretty much made Burt into a household name and launched Cosmo into a whole new realm of women’s publishing. You can learn more about the infamous photo in this great BBC article, but personally, I’d rather just eat Lou Lou P’s eclair.

Breaking Bad: The Alternative Ending

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

(Video Link)

You probably thought Breaking Bad was the story of a chemistry teacher who turns to cooking meth in order to provide for his family after he dies from cancer. As it turns out though, the show was really just a really dark Malcolm in the Middle spin off show.

If Woody Allen Directed Wolverine

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

What happens when you replace Logan’s angst and anger with neurotic mumbling? You get Woody Allen’s version of Wolverine.

Something tells me this film wouldn’t do nearly as well as the blockbuster version that’s out right now.

You Will Never Win With Grumpy Cat Dungeon Master

You can get this delightfully cruel D&D Grumpy Cat shirt from Off World Designs.

Mermaid Cosplay Is Amazing

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

7787152942_3d34e649d2

Posted in association with Mermaids Millions

The term cosplay was coined in 1984 by Nobuyuki from Studio Hard at the World Science Fiction Convention in Los Angeles. While the idea was nothing new, the term has taken off and the amount of cosplay enthusiasts has grown dramatically since the early nineties, even leaking into mainstream culture. Every year Japan runs a cosplay convention called Comiket, drawing in hundreds of thousands of people who love to dress up as their favorite anime, J-pop and video game heroes. The potential is limitless; anything goes, whether it’s Abraham Lincoln or GlaDOS.

9224264828_496a09584d_z

This year an estimated 130,000 attended San Diego Comic Con, their maximum capacity. Although it is primarily comic-focused, Comic Con like many current day conventions encompasses all elements of geek culture, and then some. While many will dress as Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman, there is so much room for creativity that just as standard, you will almost definitely see steampunk and gender reversal versions of well-known characters. As an unspoken rule, anything goes; conventions tend to attract a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, drawn together through the fandom.

171755509_cf50d725ce_z

For some cosplayers, it can be an expensive and time-consuming hobby. People spend thousands of dollars making their costumes with fairly serious attention, including fantasy weapon replicas and full costumes. It’s common practice to pose for photos, with some even making their hobby into a full-time job; professional mermaids for instance work at children’s parties and swim on camera with functioning tales made from monofins wrapped in wet-suit materials. If you’re not a professional or haven’t been lucky enough to win at mermaid millions while indulging your mermillion obsession and need to go with something a little cheaper, costumes can be made at home out of cardboard and duct tape: money isn’t important at a con and while expensively made costumes will draw attention, it’s more about creativity and dedication than flash.

1317229809_1241ae825f_z

Most people just wear the costumes, but some players aim to take on the persona of their character. Heroes have provided role-models for many young people and for a weekend it can be great fun to forget their normal lives and try something more exciting. Not everyone has the time or creative skill to create a costume, but any hints at geek culture are generally appreciated at conventions; wearing a subtle fan t-shirt, or adapting logos and themes from costumes into jewelry and other accessories may not get you as much notice as a full costume but will earn you a few knowing nods.

Hawkgirl and Cyborg make a great team, if for no other reason than they’re both super shiny.

I loved this Doctor and Rose because of their awesome accessories.

the doctor with the tardis

Drive, fake Ryan Gosling, Drive!

face monster ballerina

 Thanks CJack for letting me know that this costume is from Cabin in the Woods!

Technically, this Selina Kyle could be part of the comic book section, but since her costume was entirely based on the movie version of the character, I figured she’d fit in here better.

How you you not want to yell, “Nacho!!!” when you see this guy?
wonka cosplay sdcc 2013

The only thing that would make this Wonka costume better would be if he was giving away free chocolate.

the hobit cosplay

Everyone can enjoy a little Hobbit cosplay, even if the hobbit’s feet are way too small.

Oh my god! It’s The Birds!

edward and mad hatter

Two Johnney Depp crossplays in one shot -one Mad Hatter and one Edward Scissorhands.

assassins creed

An assassin right outside the Assassin’s Creed ship, how awesome is that?

goblin wow cosplay

This was a bad ass ogre costume based on the WOW race.

unknown cosplay sdcc

It’s possible this awesome demon was just a generic awesome demon, but since he was headed to the Capcom booth, I’m inclined to thing he is from some kind of video game. Jeanie, Amber and Lorelei says it’s probably Illidan from World of Warcraft and I think they’re right.

swimming ninjas sdcc

Why Sub Zero and Scorpion are in floaties, I don’t know, but that you Amanda Miller for helping to identify them.

pac man

Pac-Man’s new series is terrible, but the characters are adorable.

dark stalkers

Think of the Inspector Gadget theme song…now stop thinking about it. You can’t, right?

inuyasha cosplay sdcc

It was nice to see Inuyasha in attendance this year.

naruto demon

This little girl was super proud of her Naruto tailed beast costume, and she had every right to be -it was awesome!

teenage mutant ninja turtles girls crossplay comic con

More like Teenage Mutant Cutie Turtles, amirite?

DSCN2299

This Transformers gal was cool, but the Krang costume was just plain awesome.

DSCN2300

Here’s a close up of Krang. He even smiled for the picture…well, as best as Krang can smile.

ariel wuith fork cosplay

There are always plenty of Little Mermaid costumes, but never any with her fancy dress.

disney princesses

This group of Disney princesses even came with their own princes, well…two of them at least, one girl is going to get left out.

Rapunzel and Flynn rider cosplay

While girls always love playing as princesses, guys don’t tend to go as Disney princes, but they do seem to love being Flynn Rider from Tangled and this couple was particularly cute in the role.

steampunk captain hook and tinkerbelle

Of course, steampunk Captain Hook is always a fun, cool choice as well.

disney fairies

Some of Tinkerbelle’s friends even popped in for a visit.

Who doesn’t love Vanellope Von Schweetz, especially when you can enjoy her in her casual and formal wear?

Sally looked particularly impressive with those great 3D stitches on her face.

GI Joe group cosplay comic con

Best G.I. Joe group cosplay ever. In fact, there were more in their group that just didn’t get into the picture.

adventure time group

Let’s face it, real adventurers would wear much more casual clothes…like the ones these guys have on.

adventure time cosplay

There were tons of Adventure Time cosplayers, but this one had the best Princess Bubblegum dress around.

princess bubble gum girl

Here’s a very young Princess Bubblegum out looking for her Finn in shining armor.

awesomeo sdcc

Awesomeo was in attendance, but I couldn’t see Butters anywhere.

Avatar: The Last Air Bender Cosplay

Here’s the only good Avatar: the Last Airbender kind.

unknown anime

Thanks Meru and Irving for pointing out that these two are Toph, dressed in fire Nation clothes, and Princess Yue of the Northern Water Tribe -both from Avatar.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thank you DMJ and Teeni for recognizing that this is Madoka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Arthur from the Tick cosplay comic con

Arthur was ready to help fight crime, but there was none to be seen.

lana archer

Lana Kane here was worried people wouldn’t recognize her without her gun…as if that were the case.

kreiger and Cheryl from Archer cosplay

There were a few Archer costumes at the convention this year, but Krieger and Cheryl Tunt, complete with red marks on her neck, were my favorite.

archer pam

Archer’s Pam, complete with dolphin puppet.

archer villians cosplay

While most people probably just thought this was a guy in a track suit with a hot Communist girl, any Archer fan would immediately recognize Barry Dylan and Katya Kazanova.

fancy dress comic con

Thanks Chibi1120 for recognizing that this is Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler in his drag outfit.

Other:

dinos have short arms

This guy was out on the floor to help promote his booth, Better Than Pants. They were selling tees that said “If you’re happy and you know it clap your…oh” with a picture of the short-armed t-rex.

Even local restaurants got into the cosplay scene. Funky Garcia’s put out this Funky Garcia character to help promote their restaurant.

aliens in la

This gal and her plastic bag dog creature are characters from Aliens in LA, which was promoting its wares at the convention.

aliens in la

Here is another of the wonderfully odd Aliens in LA characters.

demon creepy

This demon costume was seriously bad ass. I’m pretty sure he was just an awesome looking demon, but if he’s from something specific, please let me know.

adorable lolita girls

These cute little Lolita girls were huge fans of the Hello Kitty shop in the Petco Park parking lot.

unicorn lolita

I think she was going as the Last Unicorn, but I simply loved her dress and mask.

pizza ghost

If you aren’t sure what this costume is, that’s because this guy made it up. He is pizza ghost, the ghost of pizza that has been eaten.

pedobear comic con

It looks like Pedobear is finally starting to enjoy the company of adults -I spotted him at a bar this year. Or, maybe he’s just trying to get booze for his teenage girlfriend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This teenage girls Michael Jackson Thriller costume was bad ass, but she still was surprised when people wanted to take pictures of her in it.medieval cosplayers

There are always Ren Fair recruiters upstairs, so I can’t tell you if these medieval peasants vikings (thanks guys) are part of that or if they just wanted to dress up like this for fun. And thank you Sarah and Andinell for letting me know they are part of the Society for Creative Anachronisms.

fast food fight

Do you think Super Jack could take over the Hamburglar? I like to think the Hamburglar would win, but that’s mostly out of nostalgia.

fancy Edwardian

This Edwardian mother and daughter were quite the fancy family. And thank you Nichole for pointing out that the daughter was playing the little girl from Interview With A Vampire.

Victorian Vampire

Victorian vampire is a great costume for those who love historical costumery, but want a touch of fantasy too.

Queen Elizabeth SDCC

Elizabeth the First at Comic Con 2013? Why not? If the Doctor can travel through time, surely the queen of England can.

cool hat bro

Who says you need a costume when your wife makes awesome hats like this one?

body paint man comic con

This guy has become a regular at the convention, always covered in different crazy body paints.

You could actually buy this Workaholics coat from the booth behind her.

coors knight at comic con 2013

This delightfully budget costume is known as the Coors Knight.

wastelanders weekend comic con

Yes, they look like they’re from Mad Max, but they’re actually from the Wasteland weekend event based on Mad Max, so they aren’t technically dressed like characters from the movie.
Hello kitty lolita

 This adorable lolita girl found all kinds of fun stuff at the Hello Kitty pop up shop.

bizarro a go go

This lovely clown girl was from the always odd but always fantastic Bizarro Au Go Go booth.

bizarro au go go

If you couldn’t tell from the sign, these two are also from Bizarro Au Go Go.

Odd Parings:

jesus and barroness

For some reason, I really want the Jesus and the Baronness to be friends.

comic con costumes sdcc 2013

The one on the right is Cercei from Game of Thrones, and thanks to Bridget, I also know the other girl is  Izabel from Brian K. Vaughn’s comic “Saga.”

joker and betty draper

It would be a brilliant Mad Men episode that let the Joker just stroll on scene and carve up Betty Draper’s face.

tardis and unknown

I know the girl on the right is The Doctor, and thank you to That Guy for identifying Bastila Shan form Knights of the Old Republic on the left.

shredder and unknown

Obviously the gent on the left is sportting a ghetto Shredder costume, and thanks to Ashley for identifying Chandra, a planeswalker from Magic The Gathering.

centurion and petco star wars pets

The dog and cat were there helping to promote Petco’s new line of Star Wars product and the soldier is one of the Spartans from 300. Certainly an odd group, but they’d be fun to party with.

Loki and minion

A freaky-looking minion with female Loki.

tiny batman and falling skies comic con

 Batman with a girl promoting TNT’s Falling Skies.

bane and jabbas band cosplay

Bane with Max Rebo of Jabba’s house band.

Awesome ninja, but what is he from?

demon from make up school

This demon thing being created by the makeup school was awesome, I just don’t know if it was from something specific or not.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was one of the most mind-bafflingly weird costumes at the convention.

stilts costume comic con

This guy on stilts was amazing, but I don’t know what his costume was.

totally unknown

For some reason, this soldier and Victorian woman look very familiar to me. Do you actally recognize them?

Hawkgirl is obviously the one on the right, but who is the dog?

game of thrones and unknown

Obviously the two in the middle are Game of Thrones characters, and Amanda Miller recognized the one on the right as Riddick from the Chronicles of Riddick, but who is the one on the left?

I dig this guy’s weird rabbit costume, but is he from anything specific? Victoria might be right that he’s the March Hare. It does sound about right.

unknown elf steampunk

While they may not look like it, I’m pretty sure their costumes are from the same source.

witch doctor unknown

This guy had a cool, creepy witch doctor thing going on, but I certainly didn’t recognize him.

two unknown guys costumes

The gent on the left seems to be from Assassin’s Creed, but I’m not sure about the one on the right. It was wonderful hearing him read from a trashy romance novel though.

Once again, if you recognize any of the costumes from the unknown costumes category, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!

Understanding What Makes A Good Story (Now With Puppets)

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

(Video Link)

The hero’s journey is a time-tested theory of what makes a good story, whether for a movie, novel or play. While plenty of people have written about and tried to teach the concept, only now have puppets been included in the process, making it easier to absorb the information than ever.
