Star Wars Rebels Cosplay Proves Boba Fett Is So Long, Long Time Ago

fb share tweet share

Boba Fett has long been one of the cosplay staples of any comics/sci-fi convention worth its salt. You’ll see at least two or three of the Mandalorian bounty hunter on any given day at a typical convention, mixed in with the Darth Vaders, some Jedi, and soooooooo many stormtroopers. And it’s been like that for a long while now. It’s time to shake things up and, dare I say it, add some color to the boring old standards. Enter Sabine from Star Wars Rebels…or at least a pretty wonderful cosplay version of her.

Badass ED-209 Replica, Clever General Grievous Cosplay & Adorable Predator

fb share tweet share

One of the things I love about hitting up any sci-fi/comic convention is seeing all the costumes people have pored their time and efforts into. Sometimes the sheer level of craftsmanship is enough to boggle the mind, whereas other times a clever concept alone can make for an unforgettable bit of cosplay (such as this gentleman with the tribbles). For this story we’ve rounded up three bits of very cool replica work and/or cosplay for your amusement. First up, the gorgeous ED-209 replica featured in the video above. If you haven’t watched it yet, you have 15 seconds to comply…

Transformers Cosplay That Actually Turns Into A Car Totally Wins

Attention all cosplayers, you now have two options in front of you. First, you can step up your game—and we’re talking way, way up—or you can just flat out quit. Why would we make such a statement, you may ask, because this guy in his Transformers costume, just totally won. By a mile, or a landslide, or whatever cliché you want to use. Any way you care to look at it, this is going to be hard to be beat. See, his outfit actually transforms.

This guy was spotted in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where his antics delighted some young passersby. In fact this 30 second video is already much more engaging and entertaining than Michael Bay’s giant mech movies. Maybe I’ll just watch this for two hours instead of going to see Age of Extinction. Not only is this guy dressed like a Bumble Bee from the series, but when he flips his lid, the robot actually converts into a car and rolls around. The design is relatively simple, but the end result is exactly what you want out of a costume, and maybe even a vehicle.

Dallas Comic-Con 2014 Cosplay Gallery: Tribbles And Kaiju And Daleks, Oh My!

fb share tweet share

WaldoThe Dallas Comic-Con was in full swing over the weekend, and since Dallas is right in my neck of the woods, I strapped on some comfortable shoes, grabbed a jumbo-size water bottle, and ventured to the Dallas Convention Center to see what I could see. The guest list included tons of geek-beloved note-worthies such as the casts of Firefly and Star Trek: The Next Generation; Stan Lee; Back to the Future‘s Christopher Lloyd; several folks from The Walking Dead; and, er, Judge Reinhold. I was mainly interested in checking out the Firefly reunion panel (which was awesome), but there was plenty to see and do. Hell, there was even a Giant Freakin’ Robot greeting me as I waited for the train to the convention center, and that had to be a good sign!

Mass Effect Latex Cosplay Is Tight, I’ll Be In My Bunk

fb share tweet share

TrioLast September we featured some amazing Mass Effect cosplay by the talented people of Anatomic-Latex.com, specifically the below jaw-dropping recreation of the E.D.I.’s rather fetching robotic body from Mass Effect 3. It’s the sort of thing that, if I didn’t know it was actually a model, I could easily believe was just a character model or concept art from the game itself. Well, Anatomic-Latex.com may have changed its name to Andromeda-Latex.com in the intervening months, but they sure as hell haven’t been idle on the creative front, nor have they moved past their love of Mass Effect, Enkindlers bless ’em.

Brooklyn Typhoon Cosplay Brings Pacific Rim To The Atlantic Coast

fb share tweet share

Typhoon4Last summer’s Pacific Rim showcased the increasingly desperate war between humanity and big-ass monsters invading through an interdimensional portal on the bottom of the ocean. Rather than just throw in the towel — and because Godzilla still wasn’t due out until the following year and wasn’t answering his cell phone — mankind decided to do the logical thing: build battlemechs the size of skyscrapers so they could punch those pesky monsters right square in the throat. Pac Rim may have focused on the crew of an outdated American mech called Gypsy Danger, but it was definitely a multinational affair. Most of the major countries with coasts along the Pacific were represented: Australia’s Striker Eureka, Japan’s Coyote Tango, Russia’s Cherno Alpha. But New York City’s never been the sort to sit out a fight just because they’re on the wrong coast. And so we give you the small but scrappy Brooklyn Typhoon!
