Darth Maul at Olive GardenCosplayer and TikTokker DarthCaul took a break from menacing people at San Diego Comic Con for dinner at Olive Garden. Swinging a double-bladed light saber must work up an appetite! I see they relaxed their dress code for the weekend of the convention. Would you want to tell this guy to put on a shirt? While we can laugh at the juxtaposition of a sinister Sith Lord from a galaxy far, far away shoveling pasta and bread sticks, he does seem to be enjoying himself. The makeup looks like he is dribbling sauce down his chin, while we can tell he is being careful about not dribbling sauce down his chin.
An Exquisitely Charming and Creepy American Psycho CosplayTikTok user @PumaDoesCosplay records this amazing performance by Brett Gustafson (@illusionalchemy) at the Midsummer Scream Halloween and Horror Convention in Long Beach, California.Gustafson pours on the charm as much as Christian Bale did when he played Patrick Bateman in the 2000 film American Psycho. He’s very interested in meeting up later for an intimate dinner with the young lady, even though he’s busy at the moment disposing of a dead body. The smooth Gustafson knows how to make small talk, such as chit chat about the value of the music of Huey Lewis and the News.Will this meeting lead to a second date?-via Dark Road Waiting Room​#cosplay #AmericanPsycho

I Dream of Leia CosplayThe genie Jeannie, played by the adorable Barbara Eden onI Dream of Jeannie, was a character of great interest to me when I was a young boy. It took me quite some time to understand precisely why I enjoyed that show. Eventually, I knew: it was the plot.Leia, in her slave outfit in The Empire Strikes Back, was a bit more assertive than Jeannie, but likewise inspirational to a generation.Here is cosplayer @Margo mixing those two iconic outfits together during a recent photo shoot at The Peachy Collective. Major Nelson and Captain Solo will no doubt be attentive.#Cosplay #MashupCosplay #StarWars #SlaveLeia #IDreamOfJeannie

A Uniquely Amazing General Grievous CostumeThis is not a robot. This is a man in a General Grievous costume, a notoriously difficult character for cosplay, designed by Wicked Armor. It's easily a foot taller than the person inside. You almost expect him to pull out multiple lightsabers and start spinning them! Can you figure out how it works? The wearer is completely concealed within the cape lining. He's wearing a headband that controls the Grievous head. There are more details at the sales page. Yes, you can buy this! But it's priced for serious cosplayers or professionals, and you might have to wait a while because it's not exactly mass-produced. But it could well be worth waiting for, since the design is being upgraded for ever more accuracy. -via Everlasting Blort#StarWars #General Grievous #costume #cosplay
