The making of Voltron Girl

Watch out Yaya Han.  This girl might grow up to be one bad ass costume designer or cosplayer. Grim Hammer (a.k.a. BEST DAD IN THE WORLD) has posted pictures of his process in making one of the most awesome and cutest costumes I have ever seen. This “Voltron Girl” has made its rounds around the net but still no one has seen the other bad ass yet cute costumes he has made.

Like what other costumes you may ask? Well how about Bumblee from Transformers? Or Maybe a Megazord from Power Rangers? And how about my new favorite, PREDATOR!

Check out more Voltron process photos here and Grim Hammer’s blog here.

Tell us a bit about yourself?

Hello, my name is Yaya Han and I am a cosplay idol and costume designer currently residing in Atlanta, GA. I have been making costumes and modeling for over 10 years now and am one of the only cosplayers in the world to turn this hobbyist activity into a career. I guess you can say that I’m a household name in the world of geekdom. I travel world-wide to teach workshops and panels on costume making, and to judge contests and host events, not to mention constantly working on new costume projects. I have a lot of fun playing dress up every week but also work hard and never have a day off lol.

Playboy tries some Bayonetta Cosplay [NSFW]

Posted by: |

Playboy is running some sort of cosplay contest between 5 girls asking you, the web surfer/gamer, to vote for the hottest version of Bayonetta.  In my honest opinion, I think its just another cry from Playboy asking for hits and trying to become the next Maxim.  But then again, I did go to the site to see the goods. None of those Playboy girls get my vote, because none look like the real Bayonetta.  If the hired model that dressed as Bayonetta at last years E3 was one of the candidates for this, she would definitely get my vote.

GameX COS05

Here are the photos that we tried to upload during the weekend of the show. But as you read from Bill’s articles, the internet was non-existent due to a lame hotel and internet problems at the con. Also, there were hardly any cosplayers and/or booth babes to take photos of. Nonetheless, here they are. Enjoy them past the break.

Again, big thanks to the GameX staff for a kick ass event.

Comic-Con – Cosplay – Day 4

Posted by: |

Day 4 of Comic Con is Kids day.  There wasn’t that much cosplaying or costumes walking around this day.  MAke sense since not much was going on.  It’s pretty much the day when all vendors are selling their left over stuff for an even cheaper discount because they want as less stuff to carry back to their trucks.

I asked this guy what he thought about 2012. His response was "not gonna happen."
