One of the most common questions that I get when I’m trooping in Stormtrooper armor (after “Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?”) is “Are you hot under there?” Usually, the answer is yes.
If you’ve been looking to dress up as a Stormtrooper for any of the Star Wars films coming to theaters in the next couple of years, you’re in luck: Costuming company ANOVOS has opened up pre-orders for their First Order Stormtrooper, with orders expected to ship later this year.
Is there anything better than the legs on Antony the ant here? Because we submit that there is not.
In May of 2014, I wore my first costume to a convention. It was a simple Doctor Krieger from Archer. Stepping into the shoes of a character I liked just seemed like a fun way to spend the weekend. Instead, it turned into an exploration of what it means to be confident.
Should cosplayers be paid to cosplay? It’s a question we’ve tackled before, and one that just keeps coming up, most recently thanks to the massive PR meltdown experienced by Santa Fe Comic Con after ridiculing an unnamed cosplayer for asking to be brought on as a guest.
The Hacksmith, not content with packing a mere visual replica of Captain America’s shield, went 117 extra miles and made his electromagnetic, which means that it can attach/detach from his arm just like it does in the movies.
As spotted at PAX East in Boston. These guys said they just did the E.T. outfit at New York Comic-Con but decided to double the awfulness for this show.
So, the Rogue One trailer hit the web earlier this week, and it looks awesome. There’s all the hallmarks of the original trilogy, on a war footing, and that means plenty of Original trilogy stormtroopers.
Our favorite heroes and villains live in our imaginations, and no live-action movie or TV show can ever entirely capture the ideal image we keep in our heads. But sometimes? You see a particularly creative or brilliant piece of cosplay, and it just brings a character to life, right in front of you. This past weekend…
Cosplay photography is often at its best when it gets a little adventurous, daring to head outside the studio or convention floor and get as wild as the characters that are being cosplayed.
If you’re a stickler for details and accuracy, don’t assume that making your own cosplay props and costumes is cheaper than buying a replica. Often it can cost thousands of dollars to get it right, so Hasbro and Marvel are teaming up on a line of detailed role play accessories that will make accurate cosplay slightly…
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.
