Halloween is this week! To prepare for an evening of dispensing candy to costumed children, enjoy some cosplay from the ever-awesome Boogie Beat Down’s compilation from DragonCon! Each time you see a new costume, throw a bite size Snickers at your screen! Tweet

Cosplay Month: Leftover Candy

Halloween is over and the rotten kids down the street may have dashed your jack-o-lantern to the pavement, but there’s always those last few packs of Skittles left in the bowl on November 1st.

Cosplay Classics: Tron Guy

Cosplay can garner you worldwide fame. We’re talking Internet fame here. What I like most about the phenomenon of Tron Guy (given name: Jay Maynard) is that it appears to have been entirely accidental.
