Meet Kiba The Cosplaying Corgi! Since cosplay is already awesome, our scientific calculations have determined that this adorable cosplaying Pembroke Welsh Corgi is Super Awesome. When Kiba lives in Peoria, AZ-based and when he isn’t charming fellow cosplayers, he likes to play, bark and work as a therapy dog.

Thanks to an awesome visionary known only as the GIGABEETLE, we’re learning that, when he isn’t busy battling Kaiju, Godzilla has a very active social life. There’s cosplay and gaming and dancing and coloring and exercising and so much more.
To celebrate their 21st anniversary, Redditor Ken_Thomas and his wife had this awesome portrait taken in which they dressed up as Indiana Jones and his father Professor Henry Jones. Together they recreated a moment from the unforgettable motorcycle escape scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
This marriage is clearly a happy one. The Thomases had so much fun dressing up as the Senior and Junior Joneses that they’re already discussing costumed photoshoot ideas for their next anniversary. We cant wait to see what they come up with.
Battle Ready + Ridiculously Cute = Awesome
Canadian cosplayer Andy Smith created these beautifully detailed and thoroughly kawaii suits of Hello Kitty and Pikachu-themed samurai armor. Hard hats serve as the base for both helmets and all those armor plates were fashioned from plastic garbage cans. We love that the Pikachu armor even features a lightning bolt tail.
Visit Andy’s DeviantArt page for additional process photos. If you happen to be attending Animethon, taking place this weekend in Alberta, Canada, keep an eye out for Andy, who’ll be wearing at least one of these fantastic costumes.
Redditor EliBelling shared the top photo of a phenomenal cosplay of a Boba Fett LEGO minifig. Redditor mrpotatoes subsequently dug up a link from The Dented Helmet where we learned that this geektastic costume was created by user CGS1 for their 6-year-old son. What’s more, as awesome as it is, it’s not even finished yet:
"I still have to finish building the arms and blaster, as well as tweaking a few things such as the cape fabric. I approached the components of this project as if they were actual Lego elements. In doing so, I created the jetpack to be removable as it appears in the actual minifigure as well as the range finder stalk.
The entire costume is built from scratch using photo references and scans I took myself. The costume is built primarily out of sintra with pink insulation foam used to carve the helmet dome and a small amount of plastazote foam used on the tips and base of the jetpack rockets. Torso and leg graphics are printed on adhesive vinyl while a custom green was used to colour match the helmet and jetpack.”

Head over to Hurley’s Facebook page for lots of process photos and to follow his progress with this phenomenal cosplay project.
We hope that while he’s busy working on his Groot suit, Hurley is also practicing his “I am Groot” delivery.

We can’t stop staring at the moving mouth tentacles on this incredibly awesome and rather disturbing animatronic Zoidberg costume. It was created by effects artist Frank Ippolito in collaboration with Tested and debuted at WonderCon 2014.
In addition to the nightmarish remote-controlled animatronic tentacles, the costume features foam-latex feet and claws that clickety-click just like they do on Futurama. Ippolito probably even recreated Zoidberg’s unforgettable odor. Let’s just hope they didn’t create an alternate costume depicting the Decapodian doctor out of his shell.
This phenomenally awesome Godzilla cosplay was created by lifelong Godzilla fan Sean Sumagaysay from Puerto Rico. Yes, there is a person inside this amazing homemade suit and, if you watch this costume test video (shot on a rooftop so it looks like he’s as tall as the nearby buildings), you’ll find that it moves just like the big guy does in the movies. Sean named his cosplay project “Project Nautilus" after the working title of the new Godzilla film which came out just last month. He debuted his lumbering creation at the 2014 Puerto Rico ComicCon.

Watch as 28-year-old street performer Joslyn Paige gives a group of kids in Ann Arbor, MI an unforgettable thrill by showing off his awesome homemade Transformer costume. Paige spent a few months and between $700-$800 to making his suit, which transforms from bipedal robot into a truck that actually drives around.
Paige told the Detroit Free Press that he plans to spend the summer performing in Ann Arbor, so if you happen to be nearby, keep an eye out for this awesome Human Transformer!
