Steampunk Harley Quinn Cosplay

This was user TheFontBandit's first attempt at making an original steampunk variation of Batman's Harley Quinn.

The costume requires a bit more of steampunk influence, but it's a great start!

Mandy, a sexy cosplayer, made her first costume for Comic Con under $200! Yes she did and it looked amazing.

This is what she explained on her blog:

I made this costume myself- everything combined ended up being under $200, which is not bad if you’re particularly intense about costuming like me.

If you want to learn how to make this costume for so cheap, go over to her blog to read how she did it.

She was really right on with such a tight budget:

Amazing Rogue Cosplay Costume

Supa Tuna attended ComicKaze 2011 wearing this really good Rogue costume (kudos for the pictures too), and what's interesting is that she almost did not make it to the conference - that would have been a shame!

This weekend I had a last minute change of plans. My sister had been planning to go down to ComiKaze Expo, and I had no ticket or money to go. Last minute my other sister decided she didn't want to go so she gave her ticket to me! OAO I was so shocked and surprised. It threw me off guard at first. I've been sick all week and had no cosplays to wear. So I got off my bed and finished up my Rogue cosplay. I'll tell you, it was damn worth it.

Dressing up as Rogue was the most fun I have ever had in cosplay. I hate to sound conceited but I felt like a celebrity with how many people wanted a photo of or with me. At one point a group of people had lined up and I was literally stuck in one place for 30 minutes.


Ridiculous Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Costumes

Who cares how ridiculous the costumes are, most important is how good the women who wear them look! :-)

Samara is a nearly thousand-year-old asari justicar, a member of an ancient monastic order following a strict honor code. Though she is skilled with weapons, Samara usually relies on her powerful biotic abilities. Justicars rarely leave asari space, but Samara's pursuit of justice has brought her to Illium.

More at Wikia.

Rana Mcanear is the model for this Samara costume. There is a story behind the photoshoot and this unbelievable finished product:

Rana had been explaining how she raised enough money through fans for this to be possible. She was also telling us a story about a well know company thats designs mass effect clothing basically screwed her over, and her dream to do this was lost until recently. It really was a sad story to hear, especially when nothing could have been done in terms of justice.

We're glad it work out though!

Photo: Kate Middleton 2002 'Risque' Halloween Costume

Whether it's rumor or fact that Prince William's eye was originally drawn to Kate Middleton due to the revealing transparent dress she wore at a charity fashion show, the amount it sold for at auction is simply staggering. An unidentified buyer forked over the princely sum of £78,000 ($125,871) for the see-through dress worn in 2002.

This is a great last minute Halloween costume idea NO ONE will be able to guess! If you are ready to bend the rules this season, like Kate Middleton did back in 2002, grab the idea and run with it!

Pan Am Stewardess Costume Tips

Here’s an easy way to get the look of a Pan Am Stewardess by making it yourself.

To get you started we’re providing:

  • Pan Am Wings lapel pin pattern. Simply print it out, cut it carefully, and attach it to a piece of heavy paper or cardboard. Then, affix a safety pin and wear your wing on the left side of your jacket over your heart.
  • Pan Am Stewardess cap pattern.
  • Pan Am logo for your flight bag. If you haven’t yet ordered your own Pan Am bag, you can create one by modifying a bowling bag or other large bag.

And here’s what else you’ll need:

  • Blue suit with a jacket and skirt - Pan Am Blue is very close to Royal Blue and suits can be found at your local thrift store. (If you’ve got the skills, you can tailor your jacket to accent your ladylike figure, as well as shorten the sleeves and hem the skirt to come just to your knees.)
  • White collared shirt - Just spread the collar over the lapels of the suit jacket.
  • White gloves - Wear them at mid-arm. Opera length gloves are too long. In a pinch, use shorter gloves, but never longer ones!
  • Nylons - In the 1960s, they were not as sheer as they are today. You can emphasize that you’re wearing them by choosing a more opaque style.
  • Black low-heeled pumps - The stewardesses of Pan Am were on their feet all day, go for a lower kitten-style heel.

Hair & Make-up:

  • Hair can be easily worn in the upswept style of the 1960s.
  • Make-up is light “daytime” make-up. Make it authentic by wearing the official shade “Persian Melon” by Revlon (shade 585).

'Anna Rexia' costume dropped after fury from eating disorder support group

A famous costume seller, Ricky's NYC, has gone too far by including a mockery of a body dysmorphia sufferer in their range.

The 'Anna Rexia' costume consists of a black mini-dress, printed with a glittery skeleton, headband, choker, removable 'Anna Rexia' badge and a belt that is printed to look like a measuring tape.

What do you think? Bad taste, controversial or simply funny?
