I’m not sure whether to file this as LARP or cosplay. This ogre costume was created for Halloween and resulted in many prizes for “best costume”. The orgre was created by 6’2″ Scott Carreras who has it on sale at etsy for $2,000 and he reckons a smaller person could wear the suit – but […]

Okay, so the description doesn’t use the word “snuggie”. I suspect that’s a copyright term now. Snuggler blanket is used instead. That doesn’t seem to do justice though. That doesn’t give the impression of shambling around the flat like a zombie. Fall asleep in this bad boy and people will know better to wake you […]
This tasty looking gothic cake is the hard work of Bite Me Bakery. The British bakers have crafted a Gotham City cake complete with brooding Dark Knight.
Back in March Geek Native featured the Magic: The Gathering trailer for 2014 that made its debut for PAX East. It’s a firey one. The character featured in Chandra Nalaar. Over at CGHub we can sample the art by Brad Rigney (aka Crypt Crawler) for Chandra.
Eponymous is a comic book from Mike Garley with art from Martin Simmonds and Letters by Mike Stock. I’d actually encountered the comic series before as it features in VS Comics #1 and other editions.

This means you can design Space Hulk challenges for your gaming group on your PC and they can play them around the gaming table on their iPads in the break between your Warhammer 40K night. We’ve […]
I suppose it’s not really cosplay if there’s no costume involved. That said; “cosplay” feels like the best word to describe these body paint transformations created by the deviant artist Tauart. The Russian has used his skills to turn human women into exotic looking aliens. Via Geyser of Awesome.
It is expected that the villains in The Name of the Doctor, the season finale, are a group known as the Whisperman (or perhaps Whisper Men, I’ve seen it written both ways). They have a distinct look and feel quite Steven Moffat in style. My first thought was that they reminded me of the Gentlemen […]
There are a few surprises in Iron Man 3. There is always a risk with messing with expectations when it comes to comic book movies but Shane Black and the writing team make it work. I enjoyed Iron Man 3. It’s easily the strongest of the Iron Man sequels. The original retains the title of […]
