Courtney Coulson is Frankenstein’s Monster

What a beautiful monster. It’s been a while since I checked in on Courtney and Cosplay Couture. Wow, she’s just killing it with such amazing costumes.

Here’s Courtney cosplaying Frankenstein’s monster Eve. So amazing! Be sure to visit Cosplay Couture for more photos from this series.

After watching many, many adaptations seeing what worked and what didn’t, I ended up with a creature of my own. I call her Eve, as the original Creature is sometimes dubbed ‘Adam’, this isn’t intended to be the Bride, rather a genderswapped Creature as I wanted to channel his emotional journey.

Old Photo of Children Trick-or-Treating

There’s something about black and white photos that make old costumes seem extra creepy. Instead of happy children getting candy, I see a scary street gang. LOL, cool photo, though.

This was probably taken in the late 60′s, or early/mid 70′s. I sure hope nobody was foolish enough to answer “trick.” :)

Man with Awesome Flower Beard

What a fancy beard! The flowers are such a nice touch this time of year. It’s time for all men to step up, because this is how you get the ladies.

The Perfect Peter Griffin Cosplay

It’s a real life Peter Griffin! And I mean that literally, it says so on his Facebook page. Watch this stand up routine performed at the recent Allentown Comic Con 2014.

He looks and sounds exactly like him, how funny.

How George R.R. Martin Writes Death Scenes in Game of Thrones

Boy, fans of Game of Thrones sure are clever. Here’s a great video by Mr.TVCow which gives us a first person view into the mind of author George R.R. Martin. To say Martin has a knack for killing off his characters would be an understatement, and this live action reenactment shows no one is safe. And choosing how someone dies is the greatest game of all.

There’s lots of fun costumes from the show, and a good dose of humor. Great job!

Pregnant Woman Cosplays in Style

This gal wanted to cosplay at a con, and she didn’t let her pregnancy stop her. LOL, a pregnant Orion slave girl, what a creative idea!

Kirk, you sly dog. What have you been up to?

Barefoot Running Shoes Made of Chainmail

Barefoot running is a great way to minimize impact on nature’s paths. But ouch, it sure can hurt the feet!

Check out these shoes made out of thin stainless steel chainmail. PaleoBarefoots are “virtually indestructible” shoes designed for fans of barefoot running, while protecting the bottoms of your feet. Amazing!
