Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

Happy Halloween! Get your costume on!

The gang at Beat Down Boogie did it again and brought us a superb collection of the cosplay on display at DragonCon this year, while keeping it classy. Enjoy two bite size clips below for Halloween snacking. If you’re in the mood for a full-size-Snickers-bar taste, the third video is a whopping great 40 minutes […]

Behind the table of a toy vendor at a recent convention was “Gobbles the Crazy Eating Goat!” In the same family as beloved Tower pet Milky the Marvelous Milking Cow, this guy makes up what he lacks in don’t-you-dare-drink-it milk with seven pieces […]

Cosplay Addendum: The Repeater’s Worst Nightmare

It’s gonna be a busy next couple of weeks for the Repeater. Now any yo-yo off the street can buy a spiffy, 70’s-movie-quality Bigfoot costume off the rack and go tromping around from bar to bar during the Halloween season, or jump out from behind bushes to scare the Snickers out of unsuspecting 5-year-olds. There […]

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. Mr. Maynard was simply a Tron enthusiast that crafted his own costume and, thanks to the electric Internet, decided to post […]

Cosplay: Transforming costumes

Cosplay is a time-honored tradition of geekdom, but the Transformers fans have a sub-genre that has to be seen to be believed: transforming costumes. There are many examples out there on the internet, but the first time I saw cosplayers living the dream is in this clip from 2004, where the cast of Transformers: The […]
