Marvel Comics Cosplay - SpiderGwen

I'll be honest, I don't entirely get the internet's sudden fascination with SpiderGwen. She's an entirely derivative character (even more so than the original Ms. Marvel or She-Hulk were. She worked well as part of the Spider-verse story where the idea as to have a million variations on Spider-Man, but she's not really a compelling character in her own right. Basically she's Peter Parker only a girl and she exists in an alternate timeline. What makes her better than the 725 previous Spider-girl/woman/females that Marvel has come up with I don't know. All that… Continue reading...

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay - Meet Snowbafett

Now I'm on record (repeatedly) on the subject of just how lame a  character Boba Fett actually is. Third worst in the entire Star Wars universe isn't hyperbole. That's actually where I think he ranks. Fett has one thing and one thing only going for him. He looks pretty cool (in a 70s sort of way).

Snow White to be… Continue reading...

Gender Switched Supernatural Cosplay - Death

The TV Show Supernatural actually had one of the best humanoid incarnations of Death that I've seen in any visual media.

Some of these elements are not things that can be easily captured in cosplay. Particularly when you pull a gender switch on the… Continue reading...

LEGO Star Wars Cosplay - LEGO Boba Fett

How about that for a geek triumvirate headline? Yes this is a cosplay of the LEGO Star Wars minifigure of the galaxy's least competent bounty hunter Boba Fett as lovingly created by CGS1 for his son. Even I think it's really cool and I think Boba Fett is the third lamest character in Star Wars. It's probably the most convincing LEGO minifigure cosplay I've seen to date Source: TheDentedHelmet - LEGO Boba Fett Costume. Continue reading...

Dungeons & Dragons Cosplay - Presto The Magician

I really like it when I see unusual cosplay. Either popular characters reinterpreted in a new way or more obscure characters brought to life. Presto The Magician falls into that second category. I know some of you will remember the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon from the early 1980s but I think it's fair to say we're a minority at this point. It was a fun show though and I think above average for a kids cartoon. Presto the Magician (yes called a magician rather than Magic User) was a well… Continue reading...
