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.

Role Play In Christmas Style With These Gingerbread Dice

Monday, December 16th, 2013

1386932466-0

OK, technically they aren’t actually gingerbread, but these graham cracker dice are a great way to turn your gingerbread castle adventure into a full on holiday roleplaying game.

Obviously, the process is pretty simple as it just involves gluing graham crackers together with icing and then drawing on numbers, but following Our Nerd Home’s instructions for cutting it into the right shapes is critical if you want to make anything besides a six-sided die (and where’s the fun in that).

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

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.
