Behold, the Rolling Rock Spartan! It’s a very well done suit of armor, made by Yunk28. He wanted to combine his love of armor with his love of Rolling Rock. Fantastic job! I really like the accessories, too: Helmet, sword, shield– even sandals!

Read the tutorial on Instructables, if you’d like to try to make your own.

For the torso armor I cut the boxes into diamond pieces and attached them together using twist ties. I attached the pieces to make a chain-mail type armor that is form fitting to my body and made it easier to move around. Each piece I also covered in crystal clear packing tape to make it water resistant…

Gender Bending Slave Leo Costume

Cosplayer Ryan of Mad Art Lab thought it would be fun to make a gender bending Slave Leia costume to wear conventions this year. So, he made this fantastic Slave Leo costume, which is actually extremely authentic.

What began as a fun idea turned into a challenging journey, as Ryan faced his fears, shattered his comfort zone, and gave up his pride as he took on one of the most iconic costumes in pop culture.

Be sure to read his article on Madartlab. Along with many more photos, it’s an interesting read about the struggles he faced while making this costume.
