Best Warhammer 40K Costume Ever

Best Warhammer 40K Costume Ever
I’ll be honest- I haven’t played Warhammer 40K myself, but I do know the soldiers in the game can be pretty bad-ass. Though no tiny game figurine or polygons on my computer screen could possibly compare to this:

Stormtrooper Easter Bunny Costume: The Empire Hops Back

Stormtrooper Easter Bunny Costume: The Empire Hops Back
Check out this awesome Stormtrooper Easter bunny. I say it’s about time we changed the whole Easter bunny thing and I can’t think of anything better than a Bunnytrooper.

Slave Leo: The Gender Swings Back

Slave Leo: The Gender Swings Back
Back in 2011, Ryan of Mad Art Lab wrote a post publicly condemning the Slave Leia costume. He had a couple of good reasons, but he realized that he had gone overboard, which is why last week he revised his stance.

TRON Party Dress is off the Grid

TRON Party Dress is off the Grid
We’ve already seen what a TRON-inspired motorcycle suit looks like. Here’s what the black-on-bright style looks like on a dress, courtesy of cosplayer Victoria Schmidt aka ScruffyRebel and her boyfriend Jin Yo. It even comes with a heart-shaped Identity Disc!

Dovahkiin Full Daedric Armor Costume: FUS-RO-WHOA!

Dovahkiin Full Daedric Armor Costume: FUS-RO-WHOA!
Man, look at that armor. It would take me like 400 hours to find all of that stuff in the game, let alone in real life. Look at those swords. This cosplay rocks the world of Skyrim.

Kratos: Goddess of War

Kratos: Goddess of War
Chicks might dig the rippling muscles and bald head of Kratos from the God of War games, but for those of us who prefer our eye candy to be of the female variety, here’s something you guys will like.

One Does Not Simply Dress Up as Mordor

One Does Not Simply Dress Up as Mordor
…and Gondor, Eriador, Rohan, Arnor, Rhovanion and Rhun and whatever uncharted land is on Middle Earth. But Flickr user Kristy pulled it off with style at Dragon*Con: The dress was made by Flickr user Cressiebeth, who said “I worked with a graphic designer who created the “repeat” map pattern and Spoonflower.com

LED Astronaut Helmet: It’s Spaaaace Magic!

LED Astronaut Helmet: It’s Spaaaace Magic!
While most of us will never get the chance to travel to far-off planets in a spaceship, that doesn’t mean we can’t fantasize about space travel right here on planet Earth. If you’ve always wanted to be an astronaut, then you might want to order your very own space helmet.

Halo Fan Made Kat Armor is out of This Reach

Halo Fan Made Kat Armor is out of This Reach
The cool and detailed armor of characters from the Halo universe means it’s quite hard to emulate them in cosplay. Unless you happen to be a pale, short-haired 6’7″ 287 lb. male, in which case you can just come as yourself and say you’re John-117.

I am… Zombie Iron Man

I am… Zombie Iron Man
Things are looking stark for Tony Stark. It seems as if some zombies have bitten through his armor and turned him into a Zombie. If Iron Man can be turned into a Zombie, what chance do the rest of us have?

Pip-Boy 3000 Made from Picture Frame 2012

Pip-Boy 3000 Made from Picture Frame 2012
Last year we saw a prototype for an unwearable Pip-Boy 3000, which involved using a smartphone to create a replica that was functional, or at least interactive. This hack is not as high tech, because it only uses a digital picture frame, but at least it’s wearable.

Batbane: If Batman and Bane Had a Baby

Batbane: If Batman and Bane Had a Baby
You find the strangest stuff over on Etsy sometimes. Like this mask which envisions a hybrid between Batman and Bane. The artist who made it likes to call it “Batbane.” I just like to call it straight-up weird.

C-3PO and R2-D2 Show Off Their Sexy Side

C-3PO and R2-D2 Show Off Their Sexy Side
I’ve always thought of C-3PO and R2-D2 as a couple of endearing, but not exactly attractive little droids. These ladies are definitely not the droids I was looking for – but now I can’t help but stare.

10-Foot-Tall, Flamethrowing Transformers Bumblebee Costume for Sale

10-Foot-Tall, Flamethrowing Transformers Bumblebee Costume for Sale
With only a week to go, it’s getting to be too late to start building your own really complex costume for Halloween. But if you happen to have $9,000 kicking around, and happen to live in Phoenix, AZ, you might still be able to pull off the best costume of the year.

Super Realistic Mass Effect Armor is Massively Expensive

Super Realistic Mass Effect Armor is Massively Expensive
So you finished Mass Effect 3 and now there’s a void in your life. Well, if you have the money, you could buy a set of amazingly detailed N7 armor like this set here and wear it everywhere.

Animatronic Admiral Ackbar: It’s a Costume!

Animatronic Admiral Ackbar: It’s a Costume!
Admiral Ackbar is the only fishhead in the Rebel fleet who can smell a trap from miles away. That makes him one of the smartest characters in the Star Wars galaxy. Anyone would be proud to dress up as the Admiral on Halloween, but your costume won’t be as cool as this one.
