I am not very familiar with the MMO "Dragon's Prophet" as it is very new; that much, I will admit. However, when I saw the cosplay photos this morning in my DeviantArt search for "dragons" (because everyone is not coping very well with their "Game of Thrones" withdrawals and clearly, the way to fix this is with dragons), well... let's just say I was enchanted. And you'll totally get it when you see it.

Jayne Hat Cosplay Banner

by Alison Mayer

Cosplay is great, guys. And it doesn't get much better than Firefly cosplay, because really, who doesn't want to dress up like a space cowboy and gallivant about the universe, screwing with the Alliance and swearing Chinese?

But what if you could play-pretend all of that perched safely atop a certain Hero of Canton's head? Well...one fan decided to step up her cosplay game and do just that:

superman shield evolution

In “Man of Steel” Henry Cavill’s Superman says the emblem on his chest stands for hope, but as Amy Adams’ Lois Lane points out, it’s an “S” on this planet. But that “S” sure is one of the most recognized symbols on the planet. There is probably some social sciencey study to back it up, but trust me, everyone knows the Superman shield.

But it hasn’t been the same iconic symbol over the course Superman’s 75 years. Since his debut in “Action Comics #1” in 1938, the “S” has undergone major changes. The most popular is likely the curvy serif red “S” on a yellow background, framed by the red and geometric five-sided shield. However, Superman started off with a police badge-esque shield and simple “S” on his first cover, and over time, it traded yellow for black, gained and lost weight, went sans-serif, became a three-dimensional accouterments and even went electric blue-and-white for a little while.

You needn’t take my awkward descriptions of the symbol though. In a bit of infographic goodness, HalloweenCostumes.com has created a visual evolution of Supes’ shield. They cover a lot of ground with descriptions of each iteration but I wouldn’t be a nitpicky nerd if I didn’t point out they neglect to discuss all the various animated variations -- as well as the 1988 “Superboy” series where Clark sported a shield most closely resembling the early ’90s comics (vertical upper serif, diagonal left edge, rounded bottom serif) with lots of room between the “S” and the shield border.

In the summer of 2010, Tokyopop founder Stu Levy took a cast of six American otaku and a film crew in order to explore otaku culture in the continental U.S. and find "America's Greatest Otaku." Otaku is a Japanese word used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime and manga. Historically, it’s had a relatively negative connotation, but somewhat in tandem with the acceptance of “geek culture” here in the United States, being an otaku has become more acceptable. Christopher Wanamaker was the winner named as America’s Greatest Otaku, and is founder and president of the DC Anime Club.

Cowabunga, Dude! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been a part of my life. In fact, I can remember always wanting to be Donatello for Halloween when I was younger, though it unfortunately never happened. Thankfully, there are other nerds I out there I can live through vicariously. Like this guy, who made himself a classic Krang (notice only one 'A') costume for TheRPF's 2012 Halloween costume contest. Read More...

We're continually impressed by the costumes people create for their convention outings, but once in awhile we stumble across one that puts all others to shame. Such is the case with this incredible, handmade War Machine cosplay. Not only does the face shield swing open and closed automatically, it's littered with all the (fake) weapons an aspiring hero could ever hope for. Read More...

Halloween may be over, but that's no reason to stop dressing up like your favorite comic book characters. Who needs a holiday? This latest costume hoodie will turn you into the Merc with the Mouth with one simple zip. It won't make you as clever or deadly as Deadpool, but there's no denying you'll look pretty stylish in the red and black. Read More...

Happy Halloween! With trick-or-treating set to begin this evening, we expect quite a few pint-sized Jedi, Rebel soldiers and Ewoks will be storming the neighborhood. That's all well and good, but they had better keep an eye for this guy, who will apparently be taking to the sidewalk in this awesomely huge Star Wars AT-ST costume. Read More...

It might be too late to try making your own, but there's no denying the creativity behind this Halloween costume. Once again a geeky dad has proven that geeky dads are the best dads ever by creating an "Aliens"-inspired power loader costume complete with a baby Ripley-sized cockpit. Read More...

Who are the most popular movie characters peeps will be dressing up as this year on Halloween? According to a recent Fandango poll, think "superhero." And Kristen Stewart/Jennifer Lawrence. Read More...
