Over 60 of The World’s Most Trashy, Ugly, Slutty and Ghetto Prom Dresses

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

What time is it? It’s not Adventure Time, but it’s something almost as fun -prom season. And while plenty of teens will attend their prom and have a great time this year, even non-attendees can enjoy the celebration by enjoying the trashy, terrible style that these teens are certain to regret sooner rather than later.

She’s Cheaper Than The Dress

83319121

Perfect for: The AVN Awards (aka the award show for porn movies)

What’s wrong with it? My boyfriend swears that this design must be intended to be worn with something under it, but the fact that this is a catalog image indicates that this is really how they intend this dress to be worn.

The bottom line: There are some seriously slutty dresses on this list, but as far as commercially manufactured ones, it’s hard to get more whore-y than this.

The Princess and the Pea Pod

9110fbd3-f61e-41dc-aaae-5ab89eeb421b

Perfect for: A pregnant genie

What’s wrong with it? Hey, why let a little thing like a pregnancy stop you from wearing the slutty prom dress of your dreams? And won’t your future baby be proud when he sees what a prominent role he played in your prom dress?

The bottom line: Skanky dresses are bad enough at prom, but accentuating your pregnant belly with a sparkly sash and an outfit that doesn’t cover up much else besides your baby bump is the ultimate in classlessness.

Did That Come on a Cardboard Tube?

471921

Perfect for: A Charmin commercial or a nudist prom.

What’s wrong with it? Aside from the fact that it looks like pieces of toilet paper tied together, it barely covers her titties or kooter.

The bottom line: If you have to hold the front of your dress closed at the front to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, you probably shouldn’t be wearing it.

The Gold Digger In Training

83319136

Perfect for: The next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

What’s wrong with it? It looks like there’s more silicone straps on this thing than actual fabric. Seriously she’d probably look less trashy if she wore a bikini to prom.

The bottom line: If you’re already trying this hard to land a rich husband and you haven’t even graduated high school, then your school has failed in giving you any real life skills.

Chaintrosity

000

Perfect for: The hooker date of someone attending the Player’s Ball

What’s wrong with it? I don’t know which is worse -the random chains holding the whole monstrosity up, the ample exposed skin or the sheer fabric on the leg area that proves “yes, this dress could be sluttier.”

The bottom line: In all, the whole thing looks like it feel in a garbage disposal before she pulled it back out and said “ehhh, it’s good enough” and went off to prom.

The Showgirl Surprise

17i0tcd1jysvzjpg

download

 

ghetto_prom_dress_2

Perfect for: An aspiring flamingo.

What’s wrong with it? The cleavage-loaded top and rhinestones are nothing compared to the ruffly disaster that makes up the skirt and train of these trainwrecks.

The bottom line: Maybe someone on Dancing With the Stars could get away with wearing one of these, but a teenager going to prom shouldn’t even be able to get her beak through the door in this thing.

A Little Off the Top (And Sides, And Middle, And Bottom)

2

Perfect for: Three groupies trying to win over Jay-Z after hearing about his marital problems with Beyonce.

What’s wrong with it? To start off with, most high schools would never let you go through the door in any of these dresses for any number of reasons -particularly the fact that the slits all go right up to their panties. Next, the black dresses’ midsection manages to look even more slutty than even the bra-top one because having two strips of fabric basically draws the eye to her gut.

The bottom line: They must have been trying to save fabric because what other excuse is there for cutting out the entire front section of the black dresses’ skirt?

She Blinded Me With Ugly

17i0tc93di9b4jpg

promgirl-824824309

Perfect for: An interpretive dance about the lifespan of a butterfly.

What’s wrong with it? The missing sides and excessive cleavage still play second-fiddle to these hideously-trashy fabric.

The bottom line: Unless you’re trying to demonstrate the mating rituals of the native butterflies, there’s practically no excuse to wear something this ugly.

A Confederacy of Dumbasses

247fd77e-e216-4484-9697-aaee52b139d7

all-american girl

Confederate-Prom-Dress-2012-21-300x402

Perfect for: Anyone inbred enough to lack the cultural understanding, class and decency necessary to know this is a bad idea.

What’s wrong with it? The Confederate flag. Yes, we’ve all heard that it’s not racist, but is really a sign of rebellion, blah, blah, blah, but you know what, the Nazi Swastika is technically only a symbol of the Nationalist Socialist Party, not of their murder of millions of Jewish people, but that doesn’t make it any less offensive.

The bottom line: Leave the Confederate flag to General Lee of the Dukes of Hazard.

Bodysuits and Barebacks

17i248ntgjm9ajpg

Perfect for: The next Lady Gaga or Pink.

What’s wrong with it? It looks like she’s wearing a leather diaper over the see-through bodysuit and despite this potty protection, her crack is still hanging out.

The bottom line: Let the pop stars try to be shocking -they’re the only ones with an excuse to get away with wearing saggy-leather diapers.

Saran Duran

6bede293252e9ab602183195ab6c205c

Perfect for: A human-filled car wash machine

What’s wrong with it? The two slits, the exposed stomach and sides and the cleavage are all bad, but that fabric is probably the worst thing about this dress.

The bottom line: If it looks like you could wrap leftovers in it, it probably shouldn’t be worn to prom.

I Don’t Dream of Skankie

4306l

Perfect for: A cheesy metal video from the 80s.

What’s wrong with it? It’s like she grabbed a bra top, paired it with a long skirt and decided that if she really wanted to whore it up, she’d better cut a few squares around the waist of the skirt too.

The bottom line: When it’s impossible to tell if your pubes are out or if that’s just a shadow, you shouldn’t be wearing it.

Where Serial Killers Come From

83319096

Perfect for: This really wouldn’t be a bad figure-skating outfit.

What’s wrong with it? It’s too short, too skimpy and see-through, the real question is “what’s right about it?”

The bottom line: The boy in the background pretty much nailed how we feel about this dress.

Is That A Vagina On Your Dress Or Are You Happy to See Me?

83319134

Perfect for: A woman with the subtlety of a Bond villain.

What’s wrong with it? The subliminal vagina isn’t so much subliminal as just saying “hey, here’s a vagina right over my real vagina.”

The bottom line: It’s less revealing than most of these other dresses, but no less trashy.

Just A Robot

6KZK6Vf

Perfect for: The hipster girl who pretends she’s above all this, but still desperately wants all the guys to pay attention to her.

What’s wrong with it? Few styles look good in all silver and this is not one of them. As if that weren’t bad enough, the bottom half is just poor-fitting and poorly cut -plus, the amount of leg under this dress makes it look like she forgot to wear the matching skirt.

The bottom line: If you’re going to look like a total slut, at least wear something form-flattering.

Gold and Silver Are A No-Go

ugly-prom-dress

Perfect for: A disco ball.

What’s wrong with it? How do you turn a trashy silver, spandex dress into a formal gown? Apparently by adding beaded curtains to the bottom.

The bottom line: This dress looks like it belongs in a weird, wannabe-sexy Coors ad, but even then it would fail at being sexy or glamorous.

American Slut-peril

Screen Shot 2013-04-22 at 4_opt (2)

Perfect for: An American Apparel billboard.

What’s wrong with it? Nothing says formal occasion like pleather and mesh

The bottom line: If a dress looks terrible on the model, it probably won’t look great on anyone else and these materials just look terrible together in any situation.

Life In Plastic Ain’t Fantastic

83319139

Perfect for: Barbie’s formal sleepover.

What’s wrong with it? Pink, zebra, a garter, elastic and a dangling belly ring? No, just no.

The bottom line: A pink and zebra pajama pants set with train isn’t a good look for anything but a sleepover.

Sponge Bob Sad Pants

83319097

Perfect for: Literally nothing. There is no reason this dress should exist.

What’s wrong with it? Fine, you want to wear a character from a children’s cartoon on your dress -but don’t whore it up. No one wants to think about Sponge Bob and your tits.

The bottom line: Even Sponge Bob is begging you to confiscate this dress and burn it with fire so he can just die in peace and be put out of his misery.

Don’t Poo Pooh On Me?

83319153

Perfect for: Any four year-old’s prom.

What’s wrong with it? Really, without the sluttiness of the Sponge Bob dress, this one isn’t nearly as bad, but the matching suit is pretty terrible and the guy doesn’t really look thrilled to be wearing it either.

The bottom line: Pooh is pretty awesome, but a boot-leg bow-tied version isn’t really the best prom theme.

Jessica Simpson Beta Version

9CWapG6

Perfect for: A wannabe princess who can’t afford alterations or a dress that fits right in the first place.

What’s wrong with it? Sluttiness aside, you know it’s bad when not even the model looks good in this poorly-cut design.

The bottom line: There are worse dresses around, but you’re still not going to impress anyone in this getup.

Hey Shorty

83319142

83319137

 

n1121007870_442119_1390297

Screen Shot 2013-04-23 at 2_opt (1)

Perfect for: Those who can’t decide if they want to go formal, semi-formal or hooker in hot pants.

What’s wrong with it? These are all just awful, even the semi-fancy one at the bottom -because, let’s face it, shorts aren’t fancy. If you are going to rock the shorts at least don’t go for a bra top with suspenders look.

The bottom line: Sparkly shorts are pretty much only good for cheerleaders, cabaret dancers and hookers.

World of Whatcraft?

83319141

Perfect for: A role playing convention where you have to make your own characters.

What’s wrong with it? It’s like she put a see-through bustier together with a mermaid skirt and then decided it wasn’t eye-catching enough, so she needed to add some matching blue spikes to the look. Maybe she wanted GWAR to look sexy.

The bottom line: Pretty much everything about this look is terrible.

Camo-Camo-CamoChameleon

0f2bb26b-bbef-4c8e-9f2b-dd74a47c8c00

aeffc163-c049-407c-9a24-fdacab223c0d

Perfect for: Anyone who needs to hide in the bushes and hunt ducks before, during or after attending a formal event.

What’s wrong with it? As I pointed out in the Terribly Trashy Tuxes post, camouflage is pretty much always a poor choice unless you are actually on a military mission or hunting.

The bottom line: When someone tells you the best thing you can do at prom is just “blend in,” this is not what they mean.

 No, You’re Not Balling

wallace-30

ghetto-prom-pictures-2

Perfect for: A court-side formal occasion.

What’s wrong with it? There’s nothing wrong with being a sports fan, but like camouflage, there’s a time and a place for your team jersey and it’s not your prom or wedding.

The bottom line: The only excusable reason to have a name and number on the back of your prom dress, is because your prom is in juvenile hall.

Too Much Slut To Shake A Stick At

There are way too many slutty prom dresses to write a lengthy piece about all of them, here’s a giant pile of some of the skankiest ones around.

And here’s one of the many lady Captain Americas.

This Venom costume was one of my favorites, I was just bummed this picture didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped.

hawk woman and cyborg

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

Technically, these Axe Cops were there to promote the new show, but it’s still a comic book to me.

Thanks to Josh for letting me know this is Negan from the Walking Dead comics posing with Sponge Bob.

TV:

muppets

Red and Fozzie were having a ball taking pictures with kids.

don and betty

Don and Betty looked fabulously annoyed with each other as always.

It’s a dick in a box, what more could you want?

tobias funke crossplay

Someone just blew herself.

He was certainly based on the TV Arrow and not the comic.

trekie tribble

I’m always a fan of a Trekie with a tribble.

klingon cosplay

This lovely Klingon Lass was actually performing in the costume at a play later in the weekend.

tardis dress with interior

Tardis dresses are pretty over played these days, but I’m a big fan of this one that actually shows the interior.

clara oswin

I was surprised to have only seen two Claras at the convention, but this girl claimed she saw dozens of them.

doctor and rose comic con

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

the doctor with the tardis

And it’s always cute to see the Doctor and the Tardis together.

black lady doctor who crossplay 2013

It’s also fabulous to see a black, female Doctor, something I’d love to see on the actual show.

tardis and doctor comic con

This gender-swapped Doctor and her sister Tardis were pretty darn adorable together.

doctor lady

There was something about this cute little Doctor that made me smile.

I’ve never seen a drag queen Power Ranger before, but it was pretty awesome.

sherlock cosplay

 

And this Sherlock costume was great, even if this guy is no Cumberbatch.

battlestar galactica

There were so many Battle Star fans. It turns out that’s because they were holding an anniverssary special panel this year.

Movies:

zombie dumb and dumber

Of course, the guys from Dumb and Dumber would be some of the first people made into zombies.

drive ryan gosling cosplay comic con

Drive, fake Ryan Gosling, Drive!

face monster ballerina

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

selina kyle comic con

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.

nacho libre

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.

indiana and katniss

Doctor Jones and Katniss Lara Croft (thanks Elizabeth) could kick so much ass together.

Indiana Jones cosplay Comic con

It’s a good thing Snakes on a Plane wasn’t at this year’s Comic Con.

Indiana Jones and monkey lady SDCC

Indiana Jones with Marion Ravenwood have always been a great couple.

DSCN2253

And you thought ewoks were cute before!

star wars cosplay comic con

That’s one lucky Han to have such a sexy Princess Leia and Chewie with him.

star wars medieval

This renniasance take on Princess Leia is simply fantastic -it’s creative and stunning. Thanks Jaelle for recognizing this as Padme’s packing dress from Attack of the Clones.

star wars dress

I adore this little geek gal’s cute Star Wars dress.

fat princess leia slave costume

This guy deserves a medal for being the least sexy Slave Leia cosplayer ever.

ghetto star wars cosplay

This ghetto fabulous Star Wars ensemble was done by the nerds who work at Chronicle books. These fabulous people also gave me a Grumpy Cat book later that weekend, which makes them truly fantastic.

DSCN2321 -e

One of the most timely and most creative cosplays of the convention -Sharknado.

the hobit cosplay

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

green mile cosplay

It’s hard not to love a Green Mile cosplay, if only because the person doing the costume has to look so much like the character to start with.

unknown costume

Thank you Molly for recognizing that this is Ink from the movie Ink (and for getting me interested in this movie, it looks amazing).

ghostbusters key master gate keeper cosplay

Are you the Key Master?

hit girl/guy crossplay comic con 2013

Is it still Hit Girl, or should it be Hit Guy instead?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Accio cute Harry Potter fan!

DSCN2383

This pose was just awkward enough to make it ideal for Edward Scissorhands.DSCN2354

This steampunk Shawn of the Dead was particularly clever, though it helped that this guy looks like Simon Pegg.

birds attack

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.

falcor

This Falcor cosplay was seriously amazing. I’m genuinely sorry the picture doesn’t show off the costume as well as it could have.

Video Games:

mario, luigi and princess peach comic con 2013

 It’s not a Comic Con without a Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach in attendance.

luigi in car cosplay

Looks like Waluigi is up to his old Mario Kart tricks again.

DSCN2328

All hail the Dragon Born! This Skyrim cosplay is awesome.

DSCN2338

These two youngsters were great at playing the Blue Fairy and Zelda.

It’s always nice to see Chelle, even without her crazy footwear.

unknown cosplay comic con

Thanks Mike for explaining that this is Sona from League of Legends.

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

cat costume comic con

Thank you DMJ for identifying her as Taokaka from the videogame Blazblue.

Cartoons:

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.

vanellope cosplay

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

Sally Nightmare before Christmas

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Odd Parings:

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.

Unknown:

ninja costume

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?

DSCN2403

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?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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!

Nearly 100 Great Cosplay Pictures From WonderCon 2013

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Who doesn’t love some good cosplay? Well, there was plenty of it at WonderCon this year. You can see a few more over at Neatorama.

Comic Characters:

DSCN1483 Bat Woman is absolutely beautiful and quite sexy. DSCN1482 For that matter, so is Poison Ivy. DSCN1401 The new Captain Marvel is Super Sexy. -Thanks thatmagnificentbastard for IDing her. DSCN1461 I have never seen a Ninja Turtle Costume this good. DSCN1459 Bebop looked great too. DSCN1427 Green Arrow and The Black Canary make one hell of a pair. DSCN1417 Doctor Doom and the Scarlet Witch were perfect together. DSCN1400 The Riddler, Joker and Harley were ready to go to war. DSCN1395 What Aquaman was doing with Venom and Doctor Doom, I’ll never know. DSCN1381 Wonder Woman could certainly take down all those evil doers. DSCN1380 Batman was all too ready to take down Bane this time. DSCN1369 Robin, Joker and Harley make a good trio even if they aren’t all on the same side. DSCN1366 Ivy and Harley Quinn are looking pretty. DSCN1376 And for the first time, I got to see Elf Quest cosplay.

Cartoons:

There was also plenty of anime and cartoon costumes. DSCN1372 There were a lot of Ice Kings.   DSCN1374 The Baroness always looks sexy, I just wish this picture came out better. DSCN1382 A member of the crimson guard -thanks Thatmagnificentbastard. DSCN1436 She-Ra and He-Man looked good together, but I think He-Man could stand to work out those abs a little more. DSCN1384 This He-Man was in much better shape -and those red underwear are quite flattering. DSCN1397 Princess Merida had an utterly amazing dress and her three brother bears were quite cute too. DSCN1452 This Venellope Von Schweets costume (thank you Ciara) reminds me of a tasty cupcake. DSCN1428 Here are a variety of the Disney villains as their steam punk equivalent.

TV Shows and Movies:

From The Mickey Mouse Club to Rocky and more, here are all kinds of characters from a crazy variety of movies and TV shows.   DSCN1465 DSCN1435 All three of these Game of Thrones characters look great, but Baelish really looked spot on. DSCN1456 The Aquabats were ready to rock! DSCN1430 Jason, a zombie cop and Freddy are all looking terrifying. DSCN1429 Mal was quite dashing, as usual. DSCN1425 Wash and Jayne were also in good form. DSCN1419 Ripley was ready to kick ass, as usual, but I miss little Jones. DSCN1416 Karen of The Mickey Mouse Club was in perfect style and Disney was right behind her. DSCN1406 I’ve seen dozens of TARDIS dresses, but never a TARDIS pancho before. DSCN1399 Of course, there’s nothing wrong with TARDIS dresses, especially with David Tennant. DSCN1373 Pirate Amy and Cowboy Doctor looked adorable together. DSCN1394 The great thing about this costume was that it was all Duct Tape, including the accessories. DSCN1391 The official Star Trek booth babe looked great too. DSCN1392 Barf and Dark Helmet enjoyed a snack together. DSCN1388 Boba never looked so good, or so girly. DSCN1389 Who says you need a whole costume to get in the fun? This Gonzo was still quite delightful.
DSCN1466

Robot cowboys are always pretty awesome. This guy is from the Aquabats Super Show -thanks Rhian!

Video Games:

As always, there were plenty of cosplayers showing support for their favorite video games. DSCN1404 I don’t remember the Brotherhood wearing jeans, but it’s been a while. DSCN1412 Portal and Bioshock could actually make an incredible game when combined. DSCN1442 Everyone always loves Zelda. DSCN1418 This is Tira from Soul Caliber (thanks Chris). DSCN1410 Morrigan from Darkstalkers simply adores Superman. -Thanks for recognizing her Thatmagnificentbastard! DSCN1487 Mad Moxxxie is perhaps the sexiest game character around. DSCN1460 There was a lot of love for this Jak costume. DSCN1365 Here’s Terra from Final Fantasy 6 (thanks Chris).

Miscellaneous:

These guys don’t really fit in anywhere else, but they’re still awesome. DSCN1433 Minnie R2-D2 was played by the girl who usually plays as Hello Kitty R2-D2. DSCN1371 These adorable little robot critters were available for sale at the convention. DSCN1368 The other side of his sign said, “Caution, may contain awesome.”

Odd Pairings:

They may not go together in ordinary circumstances, but they still look awesome. DSCN1383 Sexy Sherlock and a female version of the entire MST3K TV show. DSCN1478 Silk Spectre and Doctor Manhattan with the new Bioshock cast? Why not? DSCN1378 The middle character is a Moogle, Katara from Avatar the Last Airbender is on the left (thanks Kaye), and the girl on the right is Lulu from Final Fantasy X -thank you plusone78! DSCN1379 Power Girl, Samas Aran and Phoenix. -Thanks thatmagnificentbastard DSCN1481 Witchblade and Master Chief looked surprisingly sexy together. DSCN1464 I love that sexy Chewbacca appears to be Bat Girl’s mom and that the two are being interviewed by Kermit. DSCN1451 Harley Quinn should go on Yo Gabba Gabba sometime -that would make me want to dance. DSCN1420 Pinkie Pie and female Loki make a great pair, which isn’t something I’d expect. DSCN1411 Tank Girl and Gadget are from such drastically different worlds, but that’s what makes this pairing so fantastical.
DSCN1475 I know the girl in the corset is Wic from The Devil’s Carnival (thanks Bryan) and she doesn’t belong with the other three, but I still have no idea who any of them are but the group still looks great together. The three other gals are from Homestuck, the two on the left are trolls, but even Chris doesn’t recognize the last one. Thanks Kendra for explaining these all. She explains:

Hi! I’m the wick cosplayer, and I can say that my friend on the right is Definitely the Condesce (how it is spelled) with her Betty Crocker make-up falling off. The troll on the far left is Equius, and the troll next to her is (from what I can remember) either Meenah or Feferi.

Unknown:

Have some idea who these characters are? I’d love to know so I can better organize them! DSCN1473 The Minnie ears were just for fun, but I can’t tell you who she’s playing. DSCN1375 Thatmagnificentbastard identified Zarana, Destro, Serpentor,  and Baroness. Can anyone else identify the last guy?
As always, if you recognize some of the unknown costumes, leave a comment so I can properly identify them! Samas Aran



The 16 Strangest Perfumes & Colognes in the World

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Wanna stink on purpose? Then perhaps you should try one of these horrifically bizarre fragrances. Of course, just like one man’s trash is another’s treasure, while most of us would find these scents repulsive, there are those out there who find them scandalously alluring -so you never know who you’ll attract if you try one of these scents on for a try.

1. Lobster

8222326037_df477f54c2_z

Sure, lobster is absolutely delicious, but there’s a reason that fish monger isn’t among the world’s most glamorous and sexy professions -it’s not something you should aspire to smell like. If you do think lobster is your ideal scent though, Demeter has you covered -they can also help you smell like fiery curry, bourbon, rye bread or sushi.  So many terrible options, so little time.

2. Vulva

0920_vulva_perfume_wenn_thumb

Yes, this is actually a real product although technically, they claim this bottled vaginal scent not really a perfume. Instead, it’s something you’re supposed to put on the back of your hand and sniff so you can better imagine your sexual fantasy. Really though, using vagina-scented perfume to attract a man is a hell of a lot less creepy than its intended use though.

3. Cthulhu

4867563581_aa999ab071_z

Wonder how an ancient oceanic god covered in tentacles would smell? Well, according to Black Pheonix Alchemy Lab, who sells a Cthulhu scent, the smell is “a creeping, wet, slithering scent, dripping with seaweed, oceanic plants and dark, unfathomable waters.” Yummy.

Image courtesy of Flickr user meg~t

4. A Funeral Home

123923768_5b1ee438ef_z

Can’t get enough of the smell of lilies, dust and formaldehyde? Then grab your own bottle of Funeral Home perfume courtesy of odd perfumery Demeter. Who knows, maybe this will attract some hot goths.

Image courtesy of Flickr user jaspoid one

5. Bodily Secretions

t97f6e

Ever wanted to smell like the floor of a concert hall after Motorhead just played a show? Then grab your own bottle of Sécrétions Magnifiques, which was created to smell like blood, semen, sweat and saliva. According to this reviewer, it actually smells alright, even if it takes a ballsy person to pull it off.

6. A Bordello

4091553325_35749d0348_z

Speaking of bodily secretions, if you’ve ever wanted a perfume that literally makes you smell like a whore, then thank Black Pheonix Alchemy Lab for creating their Bordello perfume oil, which they claim “evokes images of velvet-lined Old West cathouses, tightly laced corsets, rustling petticoats and coquettish snarls of pleasure.”

Image courtesy of Flickr user Violet Blue

7. A Frisky Pirate

3651333606_de45e1dd77_z

Pirates are known for being badasses, treasure hunters, rogues and scallywags, but not for smelling great. No matter how many harlequin romances tell you that pirates are romantic, the bottom line is that a bunch of men sailing on the sea for months, even years at a time, without a bath just aren’t going to smell good. Of course, that won’t stop Think Geek from selling you a “Frisky Pirate” perfume stick.

On the upside, the scent features “aquatic notes swirled with fresh water lotus, mint, Tahitian vanilla and ripples of sweet liquor, all wrapped in leather, smoke, and gunpowder,” so it probably won’t smell as bad as real pirates did.

8. Hoggle

Hoggle

Speaking of things that undoubtedly don’t smell great, Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs (yes, them again), also sells a Hoggle perfume -as in the adorably weird little gobblin from The Labyrinth. So what do they claim Hoggle smells like? “Fermented pumpkin, brown leather, dust, tobacco leaf, and dark woods.”

9. Hellboy

3963973071_d3e7068c27_z

Personally, I never gave much thought as to how Hellboy smelled, but given that Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs claims their Hellboy cologne smells of “Aftershave, candy wrappers, brimstone, and cat,” I can definitively say I don’t want to smell like him.

Image courtesy of Flickr user greyloch

10. Marijuana

415YXeaREeL._SY355_

Granted, stoners love the smell of weed and this scent will undoubtedly attract plenty of them, but there’s a reason they describe the smell of good herb as “skunky.” Pretty much everyone who doesn’t smoke pot is going to look at you and wonder if you were actually sprayed by a skunk if you walk around wearing this stuff.

11. Play-Doh

FRAG-0170-37-2

Looking to walk around smelling like you just finished playing with a classroom of kids? Then grab a bottle of Demeter’s officially licensed Play-Doh cologne. Who knows, if you’re trying to get guys who are into MILFs, but you don’t actually have kids, maybe this is the secret.

12. Pizza Hut

pizza-hut-perfume

If you want to smell like pizza, you could get a job as a pizza delivery driver or you could buy this Pizza Hut perfume. Of course, if you actually like real pizza, then Pizza Hut is probably the last pizza company you would want to be stuck smelling all day.

13. Stilton

news-graphics-2006-_617690a

Stilton is an absolutely delicious cheese. Unfortunately, part of that great taste comes from its footy, earthy smell, which is precisely why the idea of Stilton perfume seems absolutely insane.

14. Barbecue

31sHQ+27sbL

Is the winter weather putting you through barbecue withdrawls? Then maybe you could help satiate your cravings with Que, the barbecue-scented perfume.

15. Bacon

Remember this classic Taco Bell commercial? Well, as it turns out, they weren’t the first ones to think that wearing the scent of bacon is a surefire way to attract a man. In fact, Fargginay’s bacon perfume dates all the way back to the 1920′s, which should give you a good idea of just how much men have always loved the salty, smoky smell of cured pork.

16. An RPG Character

edda_rpg_class_scented_oils.img_assist_custom

Whether you prefer your role playing games to be virtual, like Skyrim, or old school, like D&D, one thing you probably never considered about your character was how he or she smelled. But good old Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs has. In fact, you can buy their class or alignment scents on ThinkGeek. If you want a race or adventuring gear scent though, you’ll have to head over to the BPAL website to buy them direct. Personally, I’d be pretty interested in checking out the Elf scent that features “Pale golden musk, honeycomb, amber, parma violet, hawthorne bark, aspen leaf, forest lily, life everlasting, white moss, and a hint of wild berry.”

Know of any other freakishly strange perfume or cologne scents out there? Tell everyone about them in the comments.



Moonrise Kingdom: A Review

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

It’s hard to deny that Wes Anderson’s films all have a similar style and quirkiness. In fact, if you don’t like the dry humor in one of his movies, you probably won’t like any of his other films either. That being said, any fan can tell you that while they definitely have a similar vibe, his movies are all drastically different from one another, both in their storylines and the emotions you experience while watching them.

To that extent, his newest work, Moonrise Kingdom, is one of his most enjoyable films to date. While it might not be quite as humorous as my personal favorite, The Royal Tenenbaums, the story wonderful and delicate. Perhaps even more importantly, it makes the viewer actually feel the awkward emotions from their first romance -in its full embarrassing glory.

images

Essentially, the story is a simple tale of adolescent romance, but the lengths the two go through in the name of love remind you just how tragically desperate preteens feel the first time they experience a fluttering in their hearts. Combine the pre-pubescent romance with bad parents, adultery, a dedicated -but inept boyscout leader, social services, the wish-washy friendships of kids that age and the biggest storm of the century and you have a thrilling drama that is as touching as it is humorous.

Don’t take my word for it though, check out Moonrise Kingdom for yourself when it comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 16.



Over 200 Great Comic Con Costumes From 2012 & A Contest

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

Comic Con has finally came and went, which means it’s time for my favorite annual post, a round up of the many, many great costumes from the convention. As if getting to geek out on over 200 great cosplayer’s outfits wasn’t enough for you, I’m also hosting a contest for those who can help me name all the characters I couldn’t label myself. For more details on that, head to the bottom of the post, because first, here are the costumes!

Comics:

Have you ever wondered what would happen to Gotham when Batman just gives up? Well, thanks to TDKretires.com, now you know. You also can know that this was one of the most fun costumes I saw at the convention.

Obviously, this is what happens when a Ren faire collides with the DC Universe, but do any of you know for sure who the gal in the middle is? I think she’s Harley, but I could be wrong.

Here’s Nightwing squaring off against Harley Quinn and Catwoman. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to get hit by that comically large mallet.

And here’s a whole array of Batman villains (with poor Harley trailing behind because her heels were just too high). But why is Robin posing so proudly with the bad guys?

Here’s little Harley Quinn and Joker when they’re on good terms.

And here’s what happens when Harley screws up and fails to kill Batman.

Here’s what happens when Scarecrow’s gas somehow turns Harley into a man and Joker into a steampunk-adorned female.

Surprisingly, she wasn’t the only steampunk joker girl around.

If you prefer more modern female Jokers, how does this nurse suit your taste?

Here’s the male version of Heath’s interpretation.

And here’s what happens when Joker and Scarecrow get dressed up for a night on the town.

One of the most popular girl costumes this year was Harley Quinn, and it makes sense, she’s adorable, sexy and batshit crazy, a few things every gal can relate with.

Of course, the girls that emphasized adorable over sexy tended to stick with the more classic version of her costume.

There were also plenty of Poison Ivys looking dreadfully sexy.

This Riddler made a great case for Mr. Nigma to be recast as a black man in the character’s next incarnation, just like Spider-Man and Nick Fury.

Of course, not every Batman fan went as a villain or a retiree. There were plenty of heroes in the house.

And don’t worry sexy ladies who want to play in Gotham, you also can choose to play as heroes, like this lovely Batwoman.

Black Widow, Nick Fury and Spider-Man might not ordinarily work on the same team, but they certainly look good together.

While there were tons of girls crossplaying as their favorite Avengers characters, this was the only male Black Widow I came across.

Most gender-swaped Avengers characters just feminized the costume a little bit, but I was particularly fond of this girl’s interpretation of Captain America, complete with an umbrella in place of a shield.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with the more common types of Captain America crossplay. In fact, I’d say she looked pretty good.

This crossplayed Thor could stop a man with her cleavage just as fast as she could with her hammer. Dizzam!

On the more adorable side of gender-swapping, this poor thing was so tiny that she looked wobbly trying to walk around with that giant helmet on.

If you prefer your characters to bear their traditional gender identities and looks though, then you’d certainly appreciate this Hemidall, the Guardian of Asgard.

While there are always plenty of X-Men, this year the number was down a bit because so many more people went as Avengers or Dark Knight characters. This Magneto, Storm and Emma Frost all looked great though.

Also, it was a treat to see someone actually dress up as Wolverine in his costume (even if it was a goofy cross over costume mixed with a bit of Star Wars -thanks Sasha) since most cosplayers prefer just going as Logan with his claws out.

This Punisher costume looked pretty good, but it would have been a bit more convincing if he shaved.

While there weren’t too many other Watchmen costumes, the gals just seem to love this classic Silk Spectre look. And who can blame them? It’s both incredibly sexy and classy.

This was one of my favorite comic book couple’s costume: Louis and Clark!

Of course, Supergirl is also a popular costume choice with girls.

So is Wonder Woman, for that matter, although not that many guys want to be Robin, unless Batman is already taken.

This was the first black Wonder Woman I’ve seen, but I sincerely hope she’s not the last because she looked awesome.

While Hawkman’s costume is notably more awesome than Aquaman’s, it is worth noting that at least Aquaman was able to use his conch as a horn, something not many people have mastered.

Personally, I loved seeing this great Red Mist costume, even if the cosplayer was a little older than the character in Kickass.

Surprisingly, while the Ninja Turtles are pretty big news right now what with Michael Bay destroying them, there was only one Shredder costume. That being said, at least it was seriously awesome.

It might not be immediately obvious, but these two were both dressed as The Rocketeer.

 

For all I know, this could be a fake superhero.Thanks Arjay for letting me know this is Dr. Mid-Nite,

The skelanimals are adorable, but who is this lady? It looks like Black Canary and thanks Arjay for confirming that.

Thanks Jackie for explaining that these two are Mindfang and Redglare from the Homestuck.

Sci Fi:

While there were tons of Doctor Who costumes this year, this pair was by far my favorite. How can you possibly beat a tiny weeping angel and a tiny Doctor?

This was definitely my second favorite Who costume as it involved K9 and I’m a sucker for that robotic dog.

As far as couple costumes from Doctor Who, this one was my favorite, because I particularly love this episode and I think David Tennant is still the best Doctor ever.

This Tom Baker Doctor with River Song was also pretty good.

Of course, if you want to go as Amy, it’s always best to wear her Kiss-o-gram costume.

If you’re looking to make your Doctor costume stand out, turning Matt Smith into a zombie is always a good option.

Another good tool to make yourself stand out is to have some nice props. That being said, carrying a TARDIS around all day does not sound fun to me.

On the other hand, a duo dressed as the TARDIS and a dalek is always memorable.

While the TARDIS dress is pretty over done these days, I was still a big fan of this gal’s.

While this was a somewhat odd pairing, it also somehow makes sense for Jayne to steal his own TARDIS.

Speaking of Firefly, here’s the whole ship’s crew. See the female Mal there on the left? Yeah, that’s me.

I wasn’t the only female Mal at the con though (although I did seem to be the only one to make the look really feminine).

Of course, you can’t have a Comic Con without Star Wars cosplayers and these three made a particularly cute trio.

Here’s the world’s most ghetto R2D2 and C3Po.

Pimp Vader is always at Comic Con, but his costume never gets less amusing.

I was a big fan of this vacationing storm trooper though.

Of course, there were some more traditional Star Wars costumes as well. Impressively, this gentleman just ran a race in this outfit as part of the Course of the Force.

This Obi-Wan and Han made a good duo.

There were plenty of non-specific Jedis though.

Somehow, the Jedi look just works for ladies.

Here’s one I’m pretty sure is from Star Wars, but I don’t know the character name. Do you?

There were Trekkies too, of course.

And a good band of Klingons.

While there are always plenty of Leeloos from The Fifth Element, seeing a Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg is much more exciting. Great job Chris Vick!

Is it just me or is Leeloo way too hot for Shaun (of the Dead)? Thank you Emily for pointing out that this is actually Korben Dallas, also from Fifth Element. I didn’t remember his button up shirt look.

There were tons of Martys this year as well, but I only saw one Doc Brown. I’ve never actually seen one of the ladies from Back to the Future.

Funny enough, I did not ask Doc or Marty to do this pose.

Movies/TV Shows:

There are always plenty of Ghostbusters at the convention, but seeing one with Dana was pretty darn awesome -especially since her shoes make her look like she’s levitating.

Even without Dana though, it is still a pretty cool costume.

I was a little surprised and saddened not to see any hobbit costumes this year, but this girl did have a lovely Arwen dress.

This Katniss costume was a great interpretation of the Hunger Games character.

Although when it comes to fighting, I’d rather have Blade on my side any day.

Seeing Alice and a Hatter is nothing special, but with this many Hatters in tow, one woman actually remarked “I feel like I’m actually in Wonderland.”

Despite the fact that no one was really big on the Sucker Punch, Babydoll costumes are still really popular because they’re just so sexy.

This would be a great Edward Scissorhands costume -if he actually had the hands. As he is now, he’s just Edward Hands, which doesn’t have the same ring to it.

This Mad Max-esque guy was actually promoting the Mad Max weekend they have out in the desert every year. It sounds really fun, except for the whole desert part.

I had to take this photo fast as Mr. Funke from Arrested Development was eagerly awaiting a call from the Blue Men.

No, these guys weren’t actually offering water to thirsty attendees, they were actually paying homage to the short-lived but wonderful Party Down.

If you were wondering if these were, in fact, the Martians from The Muppets, the answer is “yup yup yup yup.”

It was by pure luck that I happened to catch this Tron character next to a motorcycle. It may not be a lightcycle, but it’s still darn cool.

While many of you still may not have seen Legend of the Fist, I highly recommend checking it out. As a bonus, you’ll also be able to recognize this costume after that.

Thanks Chris Vick for letting me know this is Victor Crowley from Hatchet 1 & 2.

Since the Lone Ranger movie is finally going to come out soon, there were a few Lone Rangers this year.

Which Ranger costume do you prefer?

Gooble was a little sad when I told him I didn’t have the money to buy his Yo Gabba Gabba plushie.

I have to say these are my favorite cosplayers of those that I couldn’t recognize their costumes. Thank you to Jenny Cotter for letting everyone know that these lovely ladies are Scorpion and Painted Doll from The Devil’s Carnival.

Here’s someone I never thought I’d see at Comic Con -Snooki!

So technically, Flo isn’t from a TV show, but considering you see her just about every time you watch TV, I think she counts anyway.

Animations:

I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Powdered Toast Man at Comic Con. In fact, I’m disappointed that I haven’t seen him up until now.

Here’s another cartoon character that couldn’t be more perfect for Comic Con, it’s Mysterion from South Park.

Adventure Time was really popular at the con this year, but I think this is by far the sexiest Lumpy Space Princess I’ve seen yet.

Adventure Time is particularly special as they are one of the only shows that created their own gender-swapped characters. Here’s Fionna & Cake enjoying the convention.

I really loved seeing Louise from Bob’s Burgers since she’s my favorite character on the show.

Venture Bros. fans always love to see Doctor Girlfriend on the floor.

Personally though, I prefer seeing Doctor Girlfriend in her Monarch uniform.

While there are always plenty of Ariels, I particularly liked this one as she somehow looked like I would imagine a real mermaid actually looks.

With a body like this, Malificent certainly could have ended up in the hotties article instead of this one. That being said, she kept making delightfully evil faces that distorted her beauty to better resemble the evil queen.

Here we have Aladdin and Cinderella, but who is the winged gent? Thanks Sara, this is Rumble, one of Tinkerbell’s friends.

This Shipwreck costume was pretty spot on.

Cheetor’s costume was pretty fun, even if it wasn’t the fanciest.

Similarly, Captain Caveman might not have looked perfect, but he was still freaking awesome!

Master Roshi’s costume was pretty good though, other than the fact that the bald cap seemed to have problems staying down.

Even as a large, bald man, Shippo is still pretty hard to resist with that cute fluffy tail.

Here’s Haruko Haruhara and Canti from FLCL.

These guys would work in a comic, anime or game. Do you recognize them? Thanks Amy for explaining that these guys are Amon and two Chi Blockers from he Legend of Korra.

Thank you Fuzzy for pointing out that these two are Mami and Kyoto from Madoka Magica.

I’m thinking she’s from an anime series, but I’m still not sure. Thanks Patricia for letting me know this is Mei from Avatar the Last Airbender.

Here’s Chibi Prussia, Chibitalia, and Chibi England fom Hetalia -thanks Stephanie, I never would have got these without you!

Are these just lolitas or are they from something? Well, the one on the left is supposed to be Fluttershy from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (thank you Marcia for filling me in on that one) and I believe the other one is Cherries Jubilee.

Thanks to Marcia for explaining that this is Princess Luna from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Gaming:

I tell you, I tell you the Dragonborn Comes. In fact, there he is.

If you prefer more futuristic FPS, then mayhaps you’ll appreciate this Tali from Mass Effect.

It’s always a good idea to be cautious when Umbrella Corp. is around.

Of course, Giovanni Auditore da Firenze from Assassin’s Creed is also a pretty dangerous fellow, so stay on his good side.

I don’t know about you guys, but I love that Sanrio and Street Fighter are pairing up and Hello Kitty Chun-Li is freaking adorable.

While Cami always looks pretty hot, it’s rare to see Sagat looking so good. My bad, it’s actually M. Bison. Thanks Steven.

Raiden’s look was pretty intimidating though.

Now I’m pretty sure this is Felicia from Darkstalkers, but if you know it’s someone else, let me know in the comments.

On the other hand, I know for sure that this is Princess Peach and Luigi.

This Sonic costume was great, but considering he was actually working for SEGA, I would expect no less.

Now this girl is certainly an Alliance character, but if you have more details on the character, let me know in the comments.

Other Costumes:

This one could almost fit in the category above, but given that The Guild revolves around an imaginary MMO, I’m gonna have to leave Codex here.

This guy was part of the street team promoting the Dawn of the Con Party at Petco Park.

Here’s another stilt walker promoting the party.

This Edwardian costume was simply gorgeous.

This mask was awesome, but I can’t imagine actually trying to breathe through it.

While few steampunk outfits actually look comfortable, at least this one looks manageable.

An angry Jack with Deadmaus? Why not?

And who can resist such a lovely lolita dress?

This lolita was even a bunny as well.

Odd Costume Groups:

Mario, Black Canary and Cutter might not seem to work well together, but I bet they could star in a pretty sweet video game together.

See, I could see Batman hanging out with Silk Spectre, but what’s with the random, stereotypical Mexican dude?

Deadmaus seems to enjoy hanging out with random characters, for example, Edward Scissorhands.

Here’s a bit of eye candy for both of the sexes, a sexy Darth paired with Ranbo.

Apparently, sexy Darth Vader gets around. Here she is flirting with Marty McFly. Still, at least it’s not his mother.

I wonder what Hawkman thinks of Effie’s lottery.

Powergirl and Dread Pirate Roberts might not make sense together, but their costumes sure look right when next to each other.

 

Here I am as Mal again, this time partnered with Domino, which again makes no sense.

Personally, I never noticed how well Wonder Woman’s outfit matches the Pope’s robes.

The great thing about taking this photo with Princess Leias, a sexy Imperial captain and Batman is that when I asked Batman if he wanted to get in the picture, he responded, “you don’t have to ask me twice” and jumped next to Leia.

Obviously, you’ll immediately recognize the Goblin King and Waldo, but if you’re wondering why the other girl gets in the gallery, it’s because her dress is actually made from Spider-Man fabric. It might not technically be a costume, but it’s close enough to get in here.

The real question about this pairing isn’t why would these two hang out together, but is this really happening or is it all just part of Babydoll’s fantasy?

Earthworm Jim and Iron Man? I would so see that movie, or play that game, or read that comic. Whatever, just put them together somewhere.

I wonder if any Hogwarts gals actually wear lolita clothes when they aren’t in school.

One more odd couple, here’s Goku with Poison Ivy. Why? Because they can.

I love the female Chewbacca costume, and thank you Nina for explaining that the other gal is a female Ramna from Ramna 1/2.

On the left we have Captain Marvel, but who is the female? and thank you Michael Sean for letting me know the girl on the right is Emma Peel from TV’s The Avengers.

Unknown:

Congratulations to our contest winner, Marcia, who won a Paranorman toothbrush that looks just like this:

Who is this pirate?

Is this Blade or Morpheus or someone else altogether? His hair and glasses say Blade, but his outfit says Morpheus.

I know the middle guy is Master Chief, but who are the demony women?

Here we have Iron Man and I don’t know, maybe a G.I. Joe character.

What about him?

Are these two an odd pairing or do they actually fit together?

Where is this couple from?

No idea here either.

I’m just guessing this character is evil, but I have no idea.

The clothes almost look like Han Solo, but the gun and goggles certainly aren’t. So who is she?

That’s it for this year kids, but if you can’t get enough, here are my cosplay collections from 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.  You might also enjoy these sexy gals from 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2008 or these sexy studs from 2012 and 2011.



Sexy Comic Con Dudes

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

My apologies ladies, but I didn’t get that many photos of sexy gents this year, but on the upside, the quality of these muscle men makes up for their low numbers.

Magic Mike, thank you for spreading to Comic Con.

He might be bloody, but he’s got a great body under the blood and ink.

Of course, if you prefer the more traditional Wolverine, here you go.

Sorry guys, I’m out of singles.

If there aren’t enough guys for you here, check out this list of hotties from last year.
