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.

This awesome work of LEGO and gaming geekery is a 75” x 45” mosaic made of 10,511 LEGO bricks featuring a vast array (nearly 24 square feet) of characters from classic Nintendo and Sega arcade games.
This geektastic masterpiece was created by an artist in the UK named Franck Lahaye who has put his handiwork up for sale on Etsy, saying, “All profits will go toward my friend’s school project, she is raising money to send her class to Africa next year.”
When a ground pork robot faces off against a ground beef robot, who will emerge victorious? We aren’t sure, but we’re guessing the leftovers will be delicious either way.

It’s Donkey Kong vs. M. C. Escher! The AweMeChannel recently shared this new stop-motion video of 3D artist Chris Carlson (previously featured here) methodically creating another awesome anamorphic chalk drawing.
This time Chris drew a mind-bending twist on the classic video game Donkey Kong. The hostile gorilla unleashes one of his dreaded barrels that ends up heading right for him thanks to M. C. Escher’s famous never-ending staircase, an optical illusion known as the Penrose Stairs, aka the impossible staircase.
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.”
"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.

Remember that awesome Balloon Buzz Lightyear costume we posted about back in May? It was created and modeled by a gifted balloon-twisting artist name Jeff Wright. We just discovered that Jeff made this playful costume too. We are officially impressed.

Redditor justicefreedomlogic shared these amazing photos of two guys, dressed from head to toe as video game characters Mario and Luigi, cruising down a Japanese freeway in actual (matching) go-carts.
Yep, it's real life Mario Kart, because Japan might actually cease to exist if something awesomely weird doesn’t happen there at least a few times a day…

“This stop motion tribute to my 2 favorite old school arcade games is based on actual recorded game footage. The recordings were printed out, one frame at a time, and transferred by hand to various walls around my office floor using thousands of Post-It Notes. The process consumed weekends and holidays for the past 11 months. Changing background scenery was masked out and replaced with 1 consistent frame throughout the animation, producing an eerie stillness amid the moving images on the walls.”
