Discussion of cosplay usually concerns the creation of awesome costumes. But some people don’t need to use a single piece of fabric, fiberglass, Wonderflex or EVA foam to create a spectacular look. Such is the case with Alexys Fleming, aka MadeYewLook, a completely self-taught make-up artist who can completely transform herself into anyone or anything using make-up, thoughtful lighting and sometime contact lenses and the occasional homemade headpiece or hat. Each character is so well-realized that some of the photos require a good long stare in order to find Lex’s actual facial features. And some of them are truly terrifying.

MadeYewLook also posts excellent tutorials on both her Facebook page and her YouTube channel. Even if you don’t want to try your hand at personal transformation with makeup, be sure to visit both her Facebook and YouTube accounts simply to check out many more of her incredible cosplay creations.

These lunches are lots of fun to look while also being tasty, healthy meals for the lucky kids who actually get to eat them. Coffron draws inspiration for his homemade boxed lunches from movies and other pop cultures sources. He also takes requests from his son and daughter.

You can see many more of these awesome meals at the Lunchbox Dad website, where Coffron also provides extensive write-ups for each lunch, including ingredients and how-tos.

Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) continues to amaze us with his awesomely overindulgent creations. His latest effort is this impressive tower of food called the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s a sandwich featuring 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter from the alphabet.

"Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.

Here’s a complete list of every ingredient in the gloriously gluttonous Alphabet Sandwich:

If you’ve ever wondered what Marge Simpson would look like as a live human being, here’s an awesomely unsettling example. This real-life Marge isn’t the product of Photoshop. She’s a collaborative creation by makeup artist Veronica Ershova, stylist Mikhail Kravchenko and photographer Alexander Khokhlov. Our favorite part is Marge’s hair, which is made of painted blue chrysanthemums.

A few weeks ago we shared a couple photos taken at a Japanese pigeon mask party. Today, thanks to Kotaku, we learned that that festive occasion was just the tip of an awesomely weird Japanese iceberg.

A Japanese comedy site called Daily Portal Z recently held a “Hato Event" (‘hato’ means pigeon in Japanese) at Osaka’s Grand Front shopping center. Attendees wore our Pigeon Masks and had their photos taken at the massive and fashionable Grand Front Osaka shopping center.

But there’s more, so much more. It seems Twitter is full of Japanese users posting their own photos while wearing pigeons masks - during meals, at the office, at the bar, lounging at home with their cats, riding the subway, even at the park hanging out with live pigeons. It’s amazing. When we go to Japan, we’ll be sure to pack a Pigeon Mask.

During a panel at Denver Comic Con last year, a young woman contending with bullies in her school asked wilwheaton if he’d ever been called a ‘nerd’ when he was a kid. There is absolutely nothing awesome about bullying, but Wil’s heartfelt response with words of support and advice was so resoundingly awesome that we simultaneously grabbed a tissue, applauded and whooped for joy. If you are or have ever been bullied for simply being yourself, please watch this.

But wait, there’s more. When this video recently surfaced on Reddit, both of the girl’s parents chimed in to thank Wil and provide an update on how their daughter is doing now. Click here for their follow up and a transcript of this video.

Wil Wheaton, as proud nerds (and fans) the Geyser of Awesome salutes and thanks you.

This awesome mechanized Xenomorph costume was created by professional cosplayer Peter Kokis using an impressive variety of everyday objects such as knife sharpeners, toilet plungers, drain mats, and conduit tubing. He spent 16 months simply gathering all of the parts he needed and then about 400 hours assembling the suit. The fearsome costume weighs 120 pounds and has been dubbed the “Brooklyn Alien.”
