Sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Girls

Gee I love being a Turtle!


Cowabunga Baby! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cosplay grrrls


Maybe these sexy girls were on their way to the Sevens tournament but no matter they tell you, these girls are smoking hot in their cosplay of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Cowbunga Girls! Clearly these ladies are not true Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as it would appear they refuse to eat Pizza. Or anything else apparently.

A World Weary Kat?

Issac Hannaford has released two more spartan sketches on his site. He also has some cool development pictures of Catherine Halsey:

And simply because Issac can, here's a big gun:

Lord of the Rings Cosplay Pictures


All the hype about FIGWIT be damned, the true heroes of Lord of the Rings are the fans who have long kept the novels popular since they were first published by Tolkien in the mid 1950's.

The modern day equivalent of keeping something popular is not read like a good book worm but to dress up as your favourite character from that book or film and before you can say "And my Axe!", you got a whole lot of LOTR cosplay action going on.

Below we have a cosplay version of Aragorn or The King of Narnia. I forget which one he is. To his left is Arwen or some sexy elvish hooker that he's picked up on his way back from a hard day's work fighting Ringwraiths and the like that may be found on the outskirts of the Shire.

Above is a very pretty elf, this cosplayer could be trying to be Arwen or some other elvish creature but I'm sure you'll agree she's done a pretty good job with her costume.

You shall not pass!
If one had to some up Lord of the Rings in one word, it would not be hobbits. It would not be the Fellowship.  It would be Gandalf. Cos he's like the coolest wizard in the history of wizardry. So why not dress as him for some cosplay adventure?

And here's the most menacing of all the LOTR characters, a ringwraith. Ooooh Scary. 

Joker costume play - it's so serious

joker from the dark knight


The Joker 


He's the archetype nemesis that all comic book villains aspire to be.

Insane in the membrane but sharp as a tack.

The Joker is the yin to Batman's Yang.

If you want a quality villain with a noxious flower or two in his jacket, he's your man.

And as for pencil tricks...

The Joker translates so well as a bad guy for cos play fans because no matter what version of the Joker they want to dress up as, the key elements are simple and can be varied up and played any way you like. You can do your cosplay as the one of many comic versions - including the famous Killing Joke one with curly hair and sharp teeth.

Jack Nicholson briefly made the Joker cool in 1989 but as cosplay largely goes with the times, the modern day choice of Joker is Heath Ledger's version from The Dark Knight. This Joker has become iconic, thanks in no doubt to Heath's death before the movie was released.

I wonder if his Joker is the most popular cosplay  choice for a character who's actor won an Oscar for their performance?

So... I stick a razor in my mouth and do this...

I heard he wears make-up.

The Joker sits and thinks about his life...
It's not all supernatural super seriousness though, some fans put their own spin on things, and that's the point I was trying to make above.

If you have the white face, red lips and green hair, and perhaps a purple suit, most people will recognise your cosplay choice as a Joker of some kind.

Check out this gentleman below - he's got some of the 'why so serious' Ledger face going on but he used spiky hair with a more playful joker suit so get his own creepy version going on.

amazing joker costume cosplay

Of course, in some circles the Joker is not a solo act anymore. Harley Quinn was introduced as the Joker's psycho girlfriend and 'double trouble' never had such a perfect definition as these two troopers:

And where's the Batman? He's behind you Joker!
Joker is generally played by a male. Some times cosplay fans like to turn the tables and come of up with nude versions of the Joker. 

Check out this babe of a cosplay Joker below. I'd be careful getting close if I were you....

Ooohhh. You want to play. Come on!

If the above joker is the crazy female version of the character, what would the equivalent Batman be like?

Cortana and the Chief by Levi Hoffmeier

halo-artwork-cortana-mastercheif

You might recall that Levi Hoffmeier has done a lot of concept art design work for Halo. He's a pretty impressive art  designer and he clearly loves Halo and has done some more imaginations on what Halo 4 might look like but I just love this picture of the Chief and his digital goddess, Cortana. Levi says he was "trying to channel 70's / 80's space opera covers."

Blog of the Dead: Zombie Cos Play

I wish these boobs were full of brains
Braaaiiinnzs. 

That's what Zombies crave. 


It doesn't matter if you are a sexy Zombie nurse, a Zombie with a bullet in your head or attacked by zombies during your wedding, they all end up wanting a taste of the grey matter. 

At least that's what I thought till I found some of these cos players doing their zombie thing. 

Some of them have forgone the brains and simply want to make out with each other or engage in zombie sex orgies....

He should see a Zombie doctor about that bullet hole, it might get an infection.

It's Father Christmas Zombie time!

Santa Clause bloody zombie

The Zombies will eat anyone, no matter how important. It's clear this Father Christmas was bitten by a zombie grinch who wanted to ruin Christmas day for everyone.

Despite the bad teeth, it's clear this long haired Zombie uses floss very well. His dentist would be pleased.

Zombie love.
This picture is Zombies covered in blood, making out. A Swiss nurse? This smacks of some bad Zombie lesbian movie that was released the late 1990s.

Is this really what you came to Gears of Halo for? Of Course it is. Zombie romances are all the rage these days.

Some more hot Zombie nurses for you to oggle. I cannot only wonder in horror what their sponge bath technique might be like?

Below this cosplayer's Bride of Zombie shot is pretty sweet. I wonder how the groom ended up.....

Black Canary Costume Play



The Black Canary is one of those under the radar type comic book heroines. Maybe her heyday has been and gone - the Justice League of America is soooooo 1980s after all right?

Perhaps not so she made an appearance or two in Smallville and cosplayers still seem pretty keen to dress up as their favourite versions of Dinah Drake and Dinah Lance - here's some sweet cosplay action of the Black Canary as found around the web.
