ThinkGeek has just taken Star Trek: The Next Generation cosplay to warp level 12. If you have always wanted a realistic TNG starfleet uniform that you can wear to cosplay, these replicas have landed just in time for Halloween, and they are awesome.
Guardians of the Galaxy was an awesome movie and a huge summer hit. The movie and its characters really resonated with cosplayers – especially when it comes to Groot. Now you can make an awesome Groot costume for about what it costs a family of four to go see a movie.
It may not be the most beautiful or complex costume in the world, but Redditor transcoder’s War Machine suit was made with cutting edge tech. Transcoder used a RepRap i3v 3D printer and about $1,000 (USD) worth of plastic for some of the larger parts – including the guns – while the rest are papercraft.
As part of her Nisha the Lawbringer costume, cosplayer Kirameku wonderfully painted a pair of jeans to give it Borderlands’ cel-shaded look. From certain angles it looks 96.5% more two-dimensional.
You can see a couple of in-progress shots of the jeans as well as Kirameku’s other costumes on her Tumblr and Facebook page.
Bandai already sells Dragon Ball scouter replicas, but YouTuber Kier Simmons’ take on the iconic accessory has a much higher power level. It’s still unfinished, but it already looks badass.
Kier hasn’t gone into detail about the hardware he’s using, only that he stuffed it into an old scouter toy.
Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Groot is this generation’s Chewbacca and R2-D2, all in one adorable and indestructible package. If you’d love to dress up as Rocket Raccoon’s best buddy, hit up costume and prop maker Calen Hoffman aka Propcustomz, who recently made a kickass Groot costume.
UD Replicas has stepped their game up. Known for releasing pop culture-themed motorcycle suits and jackets, the company has teamed up with Warner Bros. to release a suit based on Bruce Wayne’s costume in the upcoming game Batman: Arkham Knight.
Diablo III fans will recognize this sword prop right away. It’s El’Druin – The Sword of Justice – and it was designed directly from the digital art files for the game. That means it looks like the one Tyrael uses to flay baddies in the game.
We know that Kirk didn’t discriminate when it came to romancing women, but he especially loved the green-skinned beauties. With that in mind, I present to you the best Star Trek cosplay ever. A pregnant Orion woman with a sign that says Kirk was here.
This magnetic Magneto helmet is the perfect nerdy way to hold your paperclips, scissors, kitchen utensils, basically anything made of steel. It was made by twins Alexandra and Evgenia and also adds some nice realism to any Magneto cosplay if you want to wear it rather than use it for your desk.
The coolest dad ever created this LEGO Boba Fett costume for his 6-year-old son. It is based on the Boba Fett minifig from LEGO set 9496 – Desert Skiff for all of you non-LEGO nerds. It looks amazing and you know that kid is loving every minute of being in that bounty hunter armor.
ThinkGeek is really catering to Game of Thrones fans who want to get some cosplay action in between seasons. Pretty soon, you will be able to dress up as your favorite character from the series and watch in true Rocky Horror style.
While at the 2014 HeroesCon, Shawn Scott Smith took these images of a cosplayer dressed up as Prince Robot IV from the excellent comic book series Saga. Prince Robot IV’s elegant yet dorky appearance has made him popular among cosplayers, but this is the first version I’ve seen that has a working TV as its head.
