Polygon released a very interesting short documentary called Human Angle: Cosplaying the Part, which follows the story of cosplayer, cosplay builder, author, and photographer Ger Tysk. The documentary looks into Ger Tysk’s experiences diving into the cosplay culture and how she was evolved and embraced cosplay as a daily part of her life. These experiences are both positive and negative as cosplay is still misunderstood by people inside and outside the geek community.
If you follow this site, you know that I don’t put up too much stuff about cosplay, but when I do, it’s usually something spectacular. You may also know that I have a soft spot for Jessica Rabbit and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, So when I saw this stunning Jessica Rabbit cosplay by fashion designer and model, Kay Pike, how could I share it with you all. Please enjoy with your eyes only.
Things are pretty bleak in the world these days and I don’t think these hideously stupid “sexy” Star Wars costumes are helping. Costume Craze just put out a collection of new Star Wars “sexy” costumes for the upcoming Halloween season and from the look of these, the designer that put these together must have just downed a gallon of tequila before going to work. These Star Wars inspired costumes are pretty much a body suit with a skirt and an ugly ass hat. However, the “sexy” Stormtrooper costume isn’t all that bad. Regardless of what I may think of these costumes, I’m pretty sure these are going to hit big in October and we probably will be seeing these costumes roaming around our favorite comic conventions. Each costume will run you about $70 (ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!) and will be available sometime at the end of Summer. I’m pretty sure I will lose faith in humanity around that time as well.
Hit the jump and check out the collection. Sigh…
HOLY SHIT! Cosplay costume and prop fabricators, Daniel Høgh and Justina Šniukštaitė of “Roses and Boltshells” put together this mind blowing costume of Imperial Fists Terminator Captain Tancred from Warhammer 40K. This incredible monolith to everything Warhammer was created out of foam and took them about two month and around $2,000 to put it all together. What really sells this costume has to be the beautiful paint application. I’m really floored on the exceptional weathering that was applied to this cosplay.

Bow and arrows are cool. It’s even cooler when it’s being wielded by Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft. Thanks to Filipino freelance model, Vea Novenario, the “Queen of the Forsaken” gets the cosplay tribute she deserves. All Vea needs to complete her Sylvanas cosplay is a few dozen minions to take down some dreadlords.

If you’re a fan of cosplay, you probably came upon a little Italian cosplayer named Giorgia Vecchini AKA “Giorgiacosplay” (@GiorgiaCosplay) many times over the years. Giorgia is well known in the cosplay community for her vibrant and sexy costumes based on characters from hit comics, video games, and Japanese animation. Over the years, Giorgia has been praised for some awesome costumes such as Black Cat (Marvel), Mai Shiranui (Fatal Fury/King of Fighters), and Litchi Faye-Ling (BlazBlue). Well, so it’s no surprise to know that one of her newest cosplay is already turning heads. Giorgi’s cosplay is based on the “bishoujo” reimagining of Black Widow by famed Japanese illustrator, Shunya Yamashita. It’s refreshing to see this version of Black Widow considering almost every cosplayer has been hit the convention circuit with a cosplay based on the comic book or the movie version. Considering, Shunya Yamashita’s iconic style looks amazing on paper, Giorgia has successfully brought his creation to reality. I’m looking forward to what Giorgia has in store for us next!
Oh boy. How is it that a girl covered up in so much armor so damn sexy? The team at Naughty Zoot Design put together an amazing “FemShep” edition N7 armor from the hit video game, Mass Effect 3. Using a jet saw and a bunch of power sanders, NZD built this awesome armor out of aluminum cut from a full size aluminum slab. This armor is pretty solid considering it was weighs in at around 20lbs. That’s INSANE! The icing on the cake has to be their handmade N7 Valkyrie rifle that goes along with the armor. They could have gone with plastic, but a true cosplayer goes above and beyond and creates costumes that are mind blowing. What’s even cooler is that if you really want this armor for yourself, you can commission Naughty Zoot Designs to make you one by visiting their site. I’m pretty sure it will cost you a pretty penny though. Did I mention how sexy this costume is?
