Masazi. A woman forced to become inhuman. Okay not really, but damn she makes being a tortured cyborg look awesome. The veteran cosplayer and her friends made this kickass Raiden suit complete with moving helmet parts and those weird hoof heels.
Cory and Jeremy Newton-Smith are famous for making geeky Halloween rides for their son Cooper. After the DeLorean time machine and the Ecto-1, Cooper’s next ride is one we should all witness: the War Rig from Mad Max: Fury Road.

One of the coolest movies I have seen in a very long time was Mad Max: Fury Road. The flick was action packed beginning to end and the visuals were just fantastic. As much as I love the original Mad Max film, I found Fury Road to be much, much better.

Tom said it took him about $3,000 (USD) and a total of 1,600 hours spread out over two years to make the costume.
High end prop shop Anovos is now taking discounted pre-orders for an official 1:1 replica of the First Order Stormtrooper’s helmet. The replica is made of injection-molded plastic and is based on “the digital files used in the production” of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
If you are a fan of renaissance festivals, this suit of armor will probably land you any service wench you lay eyes on at the king’s feast. This isn’t a full suit of armor, however; you don’t get whatever you call the parts for your legs and feet, or even a helmet.
Halloween will be here before you know it. They already have Halloween stuff in the stores, and the giant Halloween pop-up store in my town is already open. That means it’s time to start thinking about what you want to dress up as.
Marvel’s been casting wide nets for its variant covers. Last month it unveiled its hip-hop themed variants, then earlier this month the manga ones. The latest batch of variant covers is bound to be divisive, but still a great marketing tactic for the House of Ideas.
When Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man came out in 2002, Yuri Schuurkes was captivated by the movie’s take on Spidey’s costume. He wasn’t a big fan of the hero himself, but he became obsessed with Peter Parker’s crime-fighting costume.

Artist Stefanos Anagnostopoulos made a replica of the Joker’s infamous face mask using a 3D printer. Stefanos’ grisly paint job pushes it to the stuff of nightmares. I think the absence of the Joker’s green hair also makes the mask scarier than its comic book counterpart.
