This is your last warning, Attack on Titan newbies. Drabblemeister’s ball gown is a very clever costume, but if you haven’t seen the first episode of the anime or read the second issue of the manga, go elsewhere.
This General Grievous cosplay is pretty clever. It uses Grievous’ cape to conceal the wearer’s legs, making it look even more authentic. You only see the metallic skeleton of the bad guy. It looks pretty scary.
Fans of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will recognize the sword here right away. It’s the sword used by the hero of the game, Edward Kenway, and now you can own one just like it. This replica sword is made out of latex rather than metal so you can use it in all your mock sword fights, and take it to cosplay parties without risk of stabbing someone (or yourself).
If you’ve never played Octodad or its sequel Dadliest Catch,you owe it to yourself to try this quirky game in which you play an anthropomorphic octopus who’s attempting to live his life as a normal human being.

We’ve featured awesome papercraft Iron Man and War Machine figurines before, but Kai-Xiang Xhong’s creation easily eclipses those two. The 20-year-old papercraft enthusiast made a life-size, wearable and wonderfully made Iron Man suit using nothing but cardboard.
The last time we saw professional cosplayer Peter Kokis, he was wearing his Crimson Typhoon costume. He reached out to us to share his latest creation, the Brooklyn Alien. Like his other costumes, this Xenomorph suit is made from various everyday objects.
An imaginary thinking cap? Pfff. The next time you’re in a quandary, put on this replica of Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s jacket and let the cerebral hero of Star Trek: The Next Generation be your spirit animal.
