Level Three Dead Space Costume Ready to Take on Necromorph Cosplayers

Aliens Baby Power Loader Costume: Get Away from Her, You Poopypants!

Aliens Baby Power Loader Costume: Get Away from Her, You Poopypants!
We’ve actually seen a baby in a Power Loader costume before, but it doesn’t get old. There’s something very creepy and unsettling about seeing a baby in control of a multi-ton machine capable of crushing an Alien Queen like a bug.

Game Boy Costume Uses Huge Cartridges to Switch Games
Back in 2009 we found a Game Boy costume that played Tetris. It had working buttons and had a laptop running an emulator. It turns out that anonymous cosplayer kept on working on his hack and showed off its latest version at the 2014 Ohayocon.

Life-size DIY Stargate Generates No Event Horizon, Still Awesome
Stargate is a big deal in my house. My wife and I have been married for nearly 17 years now and our first date was to see Stargate when it hit theaters. After we were married, the first time we agreed to splurge on cable was when the Stargate SG-1 series was on Showtime.

X-23 Cosplay Girl: The Perfect Killing Machine

X-23 Cosplay Girl: The Perfect Killing Machine
Laura Kinney aka X-23 was cloned from a damaged copy of Wolverine’s genes, and was created to be an assassin in the X-Men universe. With her sharp Adamantium claws, I certainly wouldn’t want to mess with her.

Gold Dalek Dress Makes Cosplay Easy

Gold Dalek Dress Makes Cosplay Easy
We’ve seen some pretty cool Doctor Who themed cosplay outfits in the past, including Dalek and Tardis dresses. The catch was those costumes were homemade. If you lack the time or skills to make your own stuff, we have the outfit for you.

Pacific Rim Crimson Typhoon Cosplay Isn’t Worn by Triplets
Peter Kokis aka Brooklyn Robot Works made a shiny costume based on Crimson Typhoon, China’s ace against the kaiju in Pacific Rim.

3D Printed & Motion-Activated Iron Man Helmet: Nod On, Nod Off

Skyrim Nord Bow Replica: Skyforge IRL

Skyrim Nord Bow Replica: Skyforge IRL
I just want to stare all day at this amazing Skyrim Nord bow. It looks so authentic and beautiful. According to the maker it isn’t functional yet, but that shouldn’t be too difficult. Once it actually shoots, it will take your your knee clean off.

Game Boy Color Costume Actually Plays Game Boy Advance Games: Tricky Treat
Back in 2009 we saw a dude who went as a playable Game Boy for Halloween. This year YouTuber MikeHandidate went as an updated version: a Game Boy Color. Perhaps realizing how awkward it would be to have the handheld’s buttons on his body, he chose to place the controls on his hands.
