Making Altered Carbon was no easy feat, by any means, and that includes in the costume department. Over 2,000 actors and extras were featured on the series, with up to 600 unique costumes that ran the gamut from near-celestial beings to synth fight club owners. In this interview with io9, costume designer Ann Foley…
The big day is upon us, and that can only mean one thing on Halloween—it’s time to put on those costumes you’ve been working on and delight and spook us in equal measure! We’ve been asking you to send us pictures of your final costumes and works-in-progress for the last few weeks, and here are our favorites so far.
Have you ever wondered what kind of Halloween costume you could put together if you had lots of money to burn, and didn’t start planning it on October 30? It would probably look something like this amazing Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi getup featuring a ‘working’ Speeder bike.
Look, there’s spooking people out with your Halloween costume, and then there’s traumatising them for the foreseeable future. This Yondu mask will do the latter.
Halloween is one week away, and you know what that means: It’s time for the annual collection of utterly confusing Halloween costumes that are meant to be sexy, but are mostly just... confusing.
Last week, we kicked off our annual Halloween costume showcase—and as ever, the io9 community is already kicking October 31's ass with some absolutely brilliant costumes. With just one week to go, we want to see how you’re all getting on with your costumes!

Last year, it was revealed that some of Game of Thrones’ lush cloaks worn around the shoulders of Jon Snow and friends are actually cut up and re-dyed rugs from Ikea. Last week, that news made the rounds. Now, the company has responded by telling readers how to slice up one of their rugs so they can pretend to be a…
Ever since that first trailer, we’ve known that Ruth E. Carter’s sublime work on the costumes for Black Panther would make it one hell of a gorgeous movie. But on the floor at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, we’ve been able to get a great look at some of the outfits from the film—including T’Challa’s new look.
The best part of Injustice 2 for me isn’t kicking butts with Green Arrow. It’s seeing what the people whose butts I’m going to kick are wearing. If you’re like me and have been gasping and cooing approvingly every time some killer fashion pops up in the fighting game sequel, here is a place to share.
There are two great reasons to follow this tutorial which teaches you how to turn 15 wooden popsicle sticks into your own set of wearable Wolverine claws: 1) You get to run around pretending to be Wolverine, popping balloons and being awesome. 2) You have a great reason to eat 15 popsicles.

When Marvel announced that the re-revived Ben Reilly would be getting his own series once more as the Scarlet Spider, the company also revealed that Ben would get a brand new suit to swing around in.

At last year’s Toy Fair Hasbro made it a lot easier for Marvel fans to live out their superhero fantasies without requiring an Avengers-sized budget. The company’s detailed but affordable role-play line is expanding this year with two new accessories for Thor fans, and those who wish they could join the Guardians of…
The talented filmmakers—or should that be, remakers— at Ghostlight recently reshot the 1987 Paul Verhoeven masterpiece, RoboCop. But since they didn’t have a million dollar Hollywood budget, they had to build all of the film’s props and practical effects themselves, including this impressive ED-209 costume.
Honestly, at first, you’d be hard-pressed to really notice what’s different about Supes’ latest wardrobe update—after all, it still looks like the Man of Steel we know and love. But there’s actually a few neat little re-tweaks and additions that bring it back closer to the classic Superman look.

Can’t understand how people in oversized hats riding horses and bulls is supposed to be entertaining? It turns out that rodeos were only boring because cowboys were wearing the wrong outfits.
