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.
Koei Tecmo has teamed up with one of my favorite Japanese RPG developers to create a set of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round costumes based on the delightful costume designs from the Atelier series and other Gust games. I’d almost pay $32 for them. Almost.
As you spend today nursing your candy hangovers and packing away your plastic spiders and fake cobwebs, take a moment to gander at the interesting costumes our celebrity friends wore during this weekend’s Halloween celebrations.
Prop builders have created some awesome costumes in the recent past, but this might be one of the coolest: a life-sized Hulkbuster.
Forget Harrison Ford! We know who the real stars at Comic-Con are: the cosplayers. Every year, they show up and rock our worlds with their incredible creativity, design skills and deep appreciation for fan lore. Here’s a video roundup of the absolute best cosplay we saw at SDCC 2015.
DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate. But as usual with superhero makeovers, some are less successful than others. So we’re going to put on our fashion-hats and rate what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe!
Well. That doesn't really look comfortable, does it?
It's been over 11 years since we last saw Hudson Soft's bestial battler series in action, and chances of a Bloody Roar revival are incredibly slim. Thank goodness Capcom is here to provide us our anthropomorphic fighter fix with a whopping nine packs of "Wild Costumes" for Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Halloween has come and gone once more, leaving in its wake scary sugar crashes, horrific hangovers and countless photos commemorating how silly/scary/awesome/unfortunate we looked last night. It's time to share.
Boring baby costumes are a dime a dozen. Oh you're a bee? A dinosaur? Big whoop, kid. Try a MechWarrior costume on for size.
I haven't really dressed up for Halloween since I was a kid. Last year, I just grabbed my judo gi and pretended to be some kind of zombified martial artist. The year before, I wore a headcrab hat one of my roommates got me a few years back… and pretended to a headcrab zombie. You can see the trend.
New York Comic-Con cosplayers, you did a hell of a job this weekend. This convention had some seriously legendary cosplay, along with a whole lotta Saga and Guardians of the Galaxy awesomeness. Here is a collection of the best of the best cosplay that we spied at NYCC.
It's that time of year again — the moment when we all realize we didn't get a Halloween costume yet. And luckily, a whole industry exists to sell us ready-made versions of popular characters. Here are the weirdest, (allegedly) sexiest and most random new costumes for sale in 2014!
I am 132 hours into Dota 2. During this time, I haven't spent a single cent on the game, but damned if it's not doing everything in its power to tempt me.
It's no secret that female characters are portrayed in a different way than their male counterparts are in comic art. But in a medium where superhero costumes are already so silly, why do we care so much about how our lady heroes dress?
Dressing up like characters from pop culture, while cool, looks like a ton of work. Cosplay doesn't have to be hard, though. If you're willing to have fun with it, you can make all sorts of costumes with stuff you have lying around the house.
Surely there will be some costumed pets tonight, given that it's Halloween. Many of these pets will be dressed at video game characters. But none will be as awesome as Salsa the bearded dragon here, who is dressed up as Charizard from Pokemon.
Uhhhhhh. Oh, boy. Either People magazine got some really bad information on Christina Aguilera's Halloween costume this year, or Christina Aguilera herself doesn't know who or what Zelda is.
You've spent all year figuring out a great get-up for All Hallow's Eve and now the day is finally here. We want you to show us your Duke Nukems and your Altairs, Ezios and Connors.
