DevinSuperTramp filmed this awesome parkour video of Chris Romwell cosplaying as a character from the forthcoming Ubisoft video game Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag while skillfully free-running throughout the recent 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. As you watch the video you may notice that, thanks to Comic-con being such an notoriously wild and bustling event, barely anyone even turns their head as this costumed figure runs, jumps, flips, and tumbles over and past them. For them it appears to be just another (completely awesome) day at Comic-con.

The fantastic Assasin’s Creed costume was made by Allison Dredge and Stephen Anderson wrote the music.

"Soon the hunt will begin."
We’re no strangers to great cosplay here at the Geyser of Awesome and this incredible Female Predator has got to be one of the best we’ve seen yet. It’s all the work of Finnish cosplayer Noora Nevalainen, who, with the exception of the leggings, made this entire jaw-droppingly awesome costume by hand:

"I made the mask from upholstery foam, liquid latex and acrylic paints. Most of the leather parts are made by my dear dad, all leather is real second hand leather. Animal skull is a fox skull I found from a forest, and collar bones are ordinary chicken bones."

Noora won first place for her fearsome costume at Ropecon XX, Finland’s massive annual role-playing convention.

When Japanese Twitter user @hy_s__ was asked by their mother if they wanted anything in particular for dinner, they replied “Totoro soba.” And that’s exactly what their mom made: a dish of tasty buckwheat soba noodles (on an incredibly cute plate) that looks just like a character from My Neighbor Totoro. Kawaii!
But there’s more. You can learn how to make Totoro soba for yourself! Just watch this video: "How to Make Totoro Soba" (And then send us photos!)

UK-based engineer Rob “Halftroll” Hall built this awesome custom wood-burning stove that looks just like Bender Bending Rodríguez, our favourite drinking, thieving, rascally robot from Futurama. Click here to watch a video of the Bender stove in action.

"A short while ago I moved to a new workshop and the cooler evenings had me thinking about making a decent size woodstove, a few days later while watching Futurama and drunk as a skunk an idea came to me. Three weeks later, 5 gas bottles, 5kg of welding wire, 90 litres of CO2, various bits of steel mostly 1.2mm sheet, plenty of plasters and copious amounts of alcohol this is what I ended up with.

Click here to see how Rob designed and built the ‘Bender’ woodstove.

The stove looks so great we think the real Bender might like it enough to add Rob to his “Do Not Kill” list.

Vinnie, who runs an Animal Crossing blog called It’s All About the Belljamins, tipped us off to this awesome work of Animal Crossing cosplay by aberrantkenosis, who reports, “My Brewster cosplay is coming along.”

It certainly is. aberrantkenosis used our Pigeon Mask to help create his wonderful Brewster costume. Brewster is a character from Nintendo’s ongoing series of Animal Crossing games:

"Brewster is a character who works in The Roost all hours of the day in the lower floor of the museum. He is a quiet, reserved pigeon with an interest in coffee. His name is a portmanteau of ‘rooster’ and ‘brew’.”

Between the anthropomorphism, that marvelous mustache, and his love of coffee, Brewster is a pigeon after our own hearts and a delightfully dapper work of cosplay.

Thank you Vinnie and bravo aberrantkenosis, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!

We hope you’re all on summer vacation or have plenty of paid time off saved up because we keep finding fantastic new destinations for Geyser of Awesome field trips, like this awesome Doctor Who-themed corn maze.

Located in northern England in the Yorkshire countryside and created from over 1.5 million corn plants, the York Maze (or Maize-Maze) is roughly 300 meters long and takes an average of 1.5 hours to solve. It’s thought to be the biggest corn maze in the world and it’s theme changes from year to year.

This year’s Doctor Who maze features a giant Dalek as well as images of the first and current Doctor. There appear to be some actual Daleks lurking in the maze itself, so be on your guard. We’re guessing there aren’t any Dalek-proof stairs to use as an escape route. There’s also a TARDIS in there somewhere, which might be how Colin Baker, the 6th incarnation of The Doctor, was able to drop in for a visit.

Instructables user nonnef created this awesome TARDIS Transformer and a transforming K-9 companion. He began by constructing a model out of clay and then moved on to 3D modeling before creating the final piece using a Replicator2 3D printer.

"If you’re going to print one of these for yourself, be prepared for a very long print. [Nonnef] says the latest version took about 30 hours on his RepRap with a .35 mm nozzle. In the end nearly the entire Transformer came directly from a 3D printer, the only additional parts needed being a pen spring and a small screw. Paint is, of course, optional.”

Holy rubber chickens, do we ever love Big Red Ape’s super awesome Hellboy cosplay. The costume she made is impressively detailed and her pose perfectly captures Hellboy’s distinctive demeanour.

"This is me in my first ever Cosplay costume Hellboy. I wanted to play homage to both the comic character as well as the movie adaptation and include many details and props that are usually over looked.
I just won Manga UK’s best female cosplay too!”

Big Red Ape Cosplay, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you! Mike Mignola must be so proud.

"Hey, I don’t wanna see where I’ve been. I wanna see how cool I look getting there!"
If you’re still feeling patriotic you might attempt to track down an awesome pair of granny panties emblazoned with a “Fonzie For President” heat transfer iron-on graphic, circa 1976. Aaay!
AKitschionado Celiene found this amazing garment at an estate sale. Now we’re dying to know what else was at that sale. Whoever made these panties had to have been (perhaps quite literally) sitting on a treasure trove of kitschy wonders.
