Pretty Soon You Won’t Be Able To Cosplay Current Daenerys & Her Dragons, But Not Yet

Cosplayer Amanda Dawn has pulled off what might be the largest Game of Thrones Daenerys with dragon cosplay yet. And well, you’ve seen how her little babies have grown in Season 4. Folks won’t be able to use them as props much longer (and stay current with the HBO show) unless they don’t actually want to enter the convention hall. Hit the jump for a few more pictures. 


Fans Do Cool Things

Strut, Flex, and Dance Along With The Cosplayers of London Super Comic Con [Video]

This video makes me happy. The ladies are wearing everything from corsets to genderswapped armor, and the gents look mighty dapper, too. Stuff like this reminds me that there’s no wrong way to do cosplay, so long as you’re having fun.

People of London Super Comic Con, you are all fabulous.

Things We Saw Today: Tech Support Gandalf, Our New Favorite Meme

“Tech Support Gandalf” sprung from the bowels of Reddit when a pic of a Gandalf-garbed Sir Ian McKellen on his MacBook turned up in r/pics. Neatorama has a blank version. Now go meme this mother up.


And All Was Right With the World

Bask In The Wonder Of This Low-Cost Cosplay

It’s things like this that make me fall in love with the internet all over again.

These aesthetic masterpieces are the work of Thai cosplayer Anucha “Cha” Saengchart, proprietor of the Lowcost Cosplay Facebook page. His followers regularly contribute images of their own costumery, using brooms, noodles, live cats, and whatever else is needed to create perfect visual homages. Truly stunning.

If You Had the Chance to Cosplay Merida As a Crossbow-Wielding Motorcyclist, Would You?

Cosplayer Zoisite-Virupaksha would, and boy are we glad. At her deviantART page you can see other Merida cosplay, both Pixar’s version and modern-day (including a shot of her on the Iron Throne, and whoops, I have a few favorite for whom I think should rule Westeros now!), but this biker gang version is our favorite. She and Daryl Dixon should join forces and use their crossbows to wipe evil off the face of the Earth.

IKEA Helps A Cosplayer With Costume Organization [VIDEO]

Frank needs to get his shit together. Literally. And I know the feeling. As a cosplayer/collector of all things nerdy, my apartment is a bit of a cluttered mess. Thanks to IKEA Singapore, Frank now has a space for everything. Can I be next? And then can we do a thing where cosplayers create a costume out of stuff they found at an IKEA?

And for the record, the PAX wardrobe is not for his costume to one of the PAX conventions, but the actual name of the wardrobe. Nice coincidence.

The Best Part of This Totoro Gown is the Soot Sprites

Katsucon Tumblred this picture of cosplayer Iris, who has crafted a simply lovely Totoro gown, complete with Catbus clutch and a hemline that reveals an amazing illusion: that an ever swirling mass of soot sprites can successfully masquerade as a grown woman with mad sewing skills. Check out her official Facebook page with more here.
