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.

Things We Saw Today: Game Of Thrones’ Wall On The Floor

This, incredibly, is a flat painting on the ground in London. Joe Hill, founder of 3D Joe and Max, said, “We were delighted to be approached by HBO to commission this artwork – we knew we had to do something really special to match the sheer scale of this phenomenal TV show that has swept the globe. That’s why The Wall in 3D works from more than one angle – making it a first in the 3D art world.” (via WinterIsComing)

Why Not Do It With Some Style?

“Half Assed Cosplay Ideas” Tumblr Illustrates Comic Book Cosplay for Lazy People

Some cosplayers sink hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, and/or hundreds upon hundreds of hours, into creating that perfect costume. Artist Patrick Dean is not one of those people. Or he wouldn’t be, if he did cosplay. A self-described “cheapskate,” Dean created the Tumblr My Half Assed Cosplay Ideas for his cheat-sheet illustrations of how a theoretical cosplayer version of himself would dress as various superheroes using things he (mostly) already has around the house.

I want someone to do a version of this for sci-fi action heroines now. Alas, I have not the drawing skills. Anyone? Bueller?
