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.

Amazing “Real Life” Zoidberg Costume

Here’s one for Futurama fans… a real life Zoidberg costume! Artist Frank Ippolito and Tested made this incredible costume and wore it to Wondercon 2014.

This 13-minute video walks you through their entire creation process. It’s really worth watching as they create Zoidberg from scratch. They even added animatronics for that extra “real life” effect. Simply amazing!

Suited up in the costume, we walk the convention floor of WonderCon 2014 to greet some attendees and take photos with other cosplayers. Stick through to the end for some woop woop wackiness!

Awesome Wonder Woman Costume

Here’s a lovely handmade Wonder Woman costume, based on the New 52 version with silver armor. This is made and modeled by Dee, aka famous cosplayer HoodedWoman. Fantastic job!

I always loved Wonder Woman but have never had the confidence to tackle one of her outfits. When I saw the silver on her new 52 armor I knew it was the one.

All the armor was a labor of love. It was foamies that I cut, shaped and then glued together. I carved the designs into the front of the foam and then began the sealing the foam. I sealed the foam with Elmer’s glue. I coated that about 3-4 times and then used a light sand paper to make sure it was really smooth. Then, using silver metallic spray paint I coated every piece. I then sealed the outside with a spray sealant. The stars were also cut from foam and painted.
