Back in July of last year Capcom teased a truly magnificent wearable Mega Man helmet replica. And while it made appearances at Comic-Con and other geeky events since then, ThinkGeek has finally added the prop to its online store so you can finally do Mega Man cosplay right.
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.
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.
Cosplay events are the most photographed parts of fan conventions, because it is so easy to get lost in the noisy whirl of highly detailed costumes and stunning make up. But what about their eyes and expressions?
Part of any huge film premiere these days includes people showing up in costume—and The Force Awakens is going to be no exception, as Jedi, Sith, Stormtroopers and Smugglers take to the streets on December 18th. But new regulations from theaters might mean cosplaying as certain iconic characters may not be allowed.
This last week, I’ve been working on one of the under-appreciated and more annoying components of Stormtrooper armor: the belt. This component is responsible for some of the headaches associated with Trooping, so we’re going to do it right.
Halloween is the one time of year that most people actually cosplay. But making your own costume from scratch is actually a lot of work. So there’s a whole industry dedicated to making costumes for you... with mixed results. Here are the trashiest and most WTF costumes for 2015.
We’ve got an amazing gallery of cosplay from last weekend’s massive Dragon Con convention, taken from the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Project Secret Identity.
The humidity is high and the party is rocking at Dragon Con in Atlanta. Here’s a sample of the fantastic cosplay we saw while wandering the hotel floors and crowded streets on Saturday.
Dragon Con is in full swing in Atlanta, and hordes of cosplayers are strutting their stuff. From popular culture favourites to original creations, here’s what we found while shuffling along crowded lobbies and dodging traffic on the streets.
Going to DragonCon in Atlanta this weekend to show off your cosplay swag? Look for Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Project Secret Identity. Gizmodo is co-sponsoring this weekend-long project to photograph cosplayers — and protect anonymity and privacy at the same time! You have a right to be in disguise.
And rather than just taking photos of cosplayers at PAX, I decided to join them.
One of my clearest memories of Star Wars was immediately after the film ended: I drove home with my dad, and thought of how cool it would be to be one of the guys in the cool white armor. Never mind that they were the bad guys - they just looked awesome.
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.
I spent the last week gliding around San Francisco in the now infamous “Suitsy”, an adult-sized pajama onesie disguised as a full business suit. At bars and in meetings, no one seemed to notice anything amiss. But, perhaps, I thought, this was because San Francisco is the home of weird attire and my colleagues were…
They sure know how to party in Seattle. Yesterday, we brought you a batch of incredible cosplay pics from Emerald City Comicon — but today's photos are way more stunning. Including some costumes we've never, ever seen done before. Check out best of ECCC's cosplay, day two!
