Potting Lillies’ Lily Potter Harry Potter Cosplay

Potting Lillies’ Lily Potter Harry Potter Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

Lily Potter (neé Evans) is a fun character because she’s often heard about but seldom seen, giving cosplayers lots of creative licenses with their depictions. Potting Lillies’ version presents auburn hair rather than straight red, which works well to distinguish her from the Weasleys, whose hair I always picture as the orange shade Ron has […]

Fun Inside Out Cosplay by thequeenoficedragons, fanaticalnerdgirl, spookiprince, ghcstgal, and iliketordles

Fun Inside Out Cosplay by thequeenoficedragons, fanaticalnerdgirl, spookiprince, ghcstgal, and iliketordles

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

Disney/Pixar has a penchant for creating colorful characters, and Inside Out used color symbolism to evoke specific moods and mindsets. The cosplayers in this cosplay really have that down. Disgust (thequeenoficedragons) is disdainful, Sadness (fanaticalnerdgirl) is anxious, Anger (spookiprince) is upset, Joy (ghcstgal) is ecstatic, and Fear (iliketordles) is nervous. I also love that these […]

Crocro-ampora and Natysenpai’s Bolin and Mako Legend of Korra Cosplay

Crocro-ampora and Natysenpai’s Bolin and Mako Legend of Korra Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

If the Hardy Boys existed in anime, they would strongly resemble brothers Bolin and Mako from Legend of Korra. (Older brother serious- check. Younger brother humorous- check.) Crocro-ampora and Natysenpai both bring a strong sense of the characters to their portrayals, creating an endearing cosplay that was featured at Izumicon 2014. Having Bolin pose in […]

DomesticGeekGirl and Jonathan’s Sweet Hayley and Jeff American Dad Cosplay

DomesticGeekGirl and Jonathan’s Sweet Hayley and Jeff American Dad Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

Hayley and Jeff are my favorite characters in American Dad!, and seeing cosplays for them always makes me happy. It’s especially nice when Hayley and Jeff are cosplayed by actual couples, since the affection therein is real and it always shows. This cosplay shows the hippies at their happiest, probably (fictitiously) indulging in an illegal […]

Allicsirpartjoker and Tookishcosplay’s Korra and Asami Legend of Korra Cosplay

Allicsirpartjoker and Tookishcosplay’s Korra and Asami Legend of Korra Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

This cosplay by Allicsirpartjoker and Tookishcosplay shows the last moment of the show, which created one of the most innovative pairings that animes and anime-inspired shows had to offer. Korra and Asami went from being jealous over the same guy (Mako) to realizing that they were romantically interested in one another and entering the spirit […]

MyLifeInColour’s Chilling Bellatrix Lestrange Harry Potter Cosplay

MyLifeInColour’s Chilling Bellatrix Lestrange Harry Potter Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

MyLifeInColour happens to bear quite a physical resemblance to Helena Bonham Carter, which makes me a little biased. That said, this cosplay is pretty wonderful in its own right. The wand actually looks like a wand and not something bought from a cheap toy store, which is a major plus. The hair is wonderfully asymmetrical, […]

Hiccup How To Train Your Dragon Cosplay by Liui Aquino

Hiccup How To Train Your Dragon Cosplay by Liui Aquino

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

Real Life Hiccup makes an appearance in this cosplay by Liui Aquino (but seriously, the resemblance is uncanny). Hiccup’s appearance as a 20-year-old in the How To Train Your Dragon 2 teaser trailer premiered this specific look with high, defined cheekbones, green eyes, and disheveled hair (from riding Toothless). Everything here is perfect from the […]

Poison Ivy Cosplay by Drummerina

Poison Ivy Cosplay by Drummerina

-by | Filed under Cosplay,Headlines,IRL

Careful of this one. Poison Ivy will definitely pinch you if you’re not wearing green! (Or, more aptly, give you an unpleasant rash in exactly the opposite color of green.) Drummerina’s cosplay shows this DC super villain in an action pose, presumably to get rid of some foolish and hapless enemy of hers trying to […]

Dashing Ross Poldark Cosplay by Twistedpumpkin Cosplay

Dashing Ross Poldark Cosplay by Twistedpumpkin Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

Who knew a woman could pull off Ross Poldark’s chiseled manly-man looks? Twistedpumpkin Cosplay’s Poldark cosplay succeeds on a variety of levels. The thickly-penciled eyebrows and light mustache and beard add a stereotypically male quality to the appearance, and the drawn expression adds the impression of high cheekbones. The long scar on the cheek matches […]

Scoobysnack’s Cute Giselle Enchanted Cosplay

Scoobysnack’s Cute Giselle Enchanted Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,IRL

Giselle is one of those characters who’s happy 99% of the time, whether you like it or not (with many characters in the movie landing firmly on “not,” at least at first). This exuberance is captured extremely well by scoobysnack in her cosplay of Giselle, with a smile that looks like it just can’t be […]

Eric–Cartman and Friend’s Stan and Francine American Dad Cosplay

Eric–Cartman and Friend’s Stan and Francine American Dad Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,Headlines,IRL

American Dad may not be quite as famous as Family Guy, but it does seem to beat its predecessor in quality. For one thing, Francine never seemed to get as bitter as Lois did as time went by. As funny as marriage mishaps can be, watching Peter and Lois’s marriage deteriorate over a decade and […]

Tham’s Astrid How To Train Your Dragon Cosplay

Tham’s Astrid How To Train Your Dragon Cosplay

-by | Filed under Cosplay,Headlines,IRL

My one complaint about How To Train Your Dragon 2? Not enough Astrid. She’s not only a dynamic character, but she’s a driving force for plot progression in the first movie. Imagine what they could’ve done with more Astrid screen time in HTTYD2. This cosplay by Tham shows Astrid in some pretty scary war paint, […]
