The amount of work that Superhero Pop put into this video is insane, from the appearances of the characters to the pitch-perfect recreation of the 1980s. I’m kind of in love with this.
Cosplay has always prided itself on its ability to transform fans into their heroes, wherever and whoever they are. In theory, at least. In practice, things haven’t always been that perfect, especially when a fan is black.
Hoverboards ruined Christmas, burst into flames, look foolish, are widely banned, and don’t hover. Lame all around. Except when you turn one of them into a famous magical item from one of the world’s most beloved anime series. That’s what this guy did when he dressed up as Goku from Dragon Ball and motored around…
It may not be the biggest PAX show on Earth for video games, but PAX South is one hell of a cosplay convention.
There’s just so much to love here. The cosplay for starters, of course, but also the dedication: while the lightsabers have (duh) had some photoshop work done, that hellish weather was the real deal.
Maybe not! It depends, really. But since this Korean cosplayer has a head full of hair, she needed a bald cap to pull off her One-Punch Man outfit.
Adam Savage, of Mythbusters and Tested, is a known space suit geek, and he’s expressed his love for the design of the suits on The Martian quite a bit on social media. Now, Fox has sent him a suit to look over.
Over the last five years, Beat Down Boogie has been all over the country filming cosplayers at sci-fi shows and nerd conventions. And wherever there were cosplayers, there were Star Wars cosplayers. This video catalogues the best of them.
There’s already a ton of great Kylo Ren cosplay out there, but I haven’t seen one go the extra mile like Alhon has.
Frank Ippolito and his team were asked by Sony to build a contest winner a full set of Titan armour from Destiny. After five weeks of work, they delivered, and then some.
Yes, it finally happened, somehow: the next Star Wars movie has arrived. We’ve spent the whole week celebrating the new movie and the entire saga, but last night, the Force was with millions of people as they headed to the theaters to see the movie. Here’s some of the coolest cosplay and moments from across the world!
So, I have a confession to make: this project isn’t done yet, and I don’t have final, full kit pictures yet. I’ll explain in a bit, but I do have pictures of something else: the helmet.
In my regular ‘So You Want To Join The Empire’ column, I’ve gotten the question a bit: why dress up as the bad guys of Star Wars, given the iconography? The LA Times goes into how the 501st Legion went from a Geocities site for Stormtrooper enthusiasts to a world-wide charitable costuming group.
Is Knights of the Old Republic even canon anymore? Ah, who cares, this terrific cosplay is now Star Wars cosplay canon.
We’ve just about reached the end of this build: the end is in sight! This week, we’re finishing up the body work, and will finally get it all ready for a proper test fit.
So, the Stormtrooper is almost done. The armor is trimmed, assembled, and wearable. Now, there’s a couple of final things that need to be picked up. Additionally, I’ve embarked on another project: refitting my original Stormtrooper.
This is one thing I love about the cosplay community: the level of work and attention to detail that’s put into the costumes that they build are absolutely stunning.
