The Letter Of The Day is "S," boys and girls. S, for "Sesame Street". And "sue."

How the online costume company Yandy.com thought they were going to get away with such numbers as "Sexy Big Bird," "Sexy Cookie Monster," and the perennial favorite "Sexy Bert and Ernie" -- and not get at least a "cease and desist" -- was beyond my comprehension. For example, here is "Sexy Bert and Ernie":

Halloween is one of our most favorite holidays. Not because there's loads of candy floating around, but because we just love all the costumes (which you've probably guessed considering our cosplay obsession). Unfortunately, a lot of people don't have the time to get all dressed up on the 31st, but these Transformers costume hoodies keep things simple.

Halloween is right around the corner and while everyone's doing their best to look like a deteriorating member of the undead, I'll be dressing up as the one thing the undead horde truly fears – The Goon! With a feature film on the way (hopefully!) from creator Eric Powell there's never been a better time to show your love for The Goon, and this mask is just what the zombie doctor ordered.

Halloween will be here before you know it and there's no better time find that perfect costume. However, you may want to watch out for this guy, who will probably be eating all sorts of trick-or-treaters come the 31st, as he'll be dressed up in this life-size, animatronic T-Rex costume. Yeah, it's technically a baby-sized T-Rex, but it's a T-Rex all the same.

During the 2012 Power-Con/ThunderCon, the forces of the Masters of the Universe and the ThunderCats came together for a special weekend in Los Angeles-- and nothing states that fan dedication and love more than cosplay! With smaller numbers than one of the mega shows, like SDCC, Power-Con/ThunderCon still had a fare share of costumed attendees, and the overall quality of the gear being worn was spectacular, just like the great attitudes of all involved! While my scrawny frame doesn't mesh well with furry underwear and shirtless-ness, join me as I take a closer look at a few of the people that managed to pull off the look as my favorite cosplayers from Power-Con/ThunderCon 2012!

Marvel may have downsized their contribution to Baltimore Comic-Con, but that doesn't mean the cosplayers weren't out in full force. Here's a round up of some of the Marvel-ous cosplay on display, including probably the best Nova costume we've ever seen: Read More...

Copper pipes, gauges, goggles, top hats, and corsets could be seen surfacing amongst the sea of cosplayers at Dragon*Con 2012. Steampunk has really come into its own in the past few years, with new Etsy shops and Ebay stores cropping up everyday to offer the latest in gear-covered Nerf weaponry and hydraulic-powered teacups. "Hydraulic-powered teacups?" We really have to get some sleep! In the meantime, here's a gallery of costumes for your skull-meat to enjoy!

Uatu the Watcher is but one of the Marvel Comics characters roaming the various ballrooms during Dragon*Con 2012. Hell, even the X-Men and Avengers have put aside their differences during this Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, and we're bring you the photographic proof! Costumes? Sure, these are just costumed fans, but we prefer using our imagination!

We've been showing off plenty of adults dressed up as their favorite characters, but the great thing about conventions like Dragon*Con 2012 is that they are also very kid-friendly, so the little ones can have a blast joining in on the festivities (during the day, anyway)! During our time hanging out at the MTV Geek photo booth, a ton of kids stopped by to get photographed so their con experience shall be forever immortalized online! With that in mind, we're gonna keep the chatter to a minimum so we can fit in as many cool costumes as possible. You're looking at the future!

While most of us will admit to spending a lot of free time playing video games, these fine folks pressed the pause button and, in some cases, spent days and weeks to build the perfect costume to represent their favorite video game character at Dragon*Con 2012. From the quirky to the downright badass, we've found a wide selection for you to check out-- and possibly get some inspiration from for all you future cosplayers!

While Dragon*Con is generally loads of care-free, costumed, fun for the average con-goer, there lies the threat of creeping (simulated) danger and scares at any given turn thanks to the tons of horror fans on hand that are sporting their blood-drenched costumes they've spent hours perfecting just to give you a tingling of dread up your spine. Join us as we continue our Dragon*Con 2012 cosplay coverage with this look at some of the costumes that cause a weaker being to lose bladder control over if happening upon them in the dark, AND some off-beat horror tributes!

Our cosplay coverage of Dragon*Con 2012 rolls on with a glimpse at some of the best and brightest cartoon-based costumes to hit Atlanta! As anyone who has attended, or followed coverage of, SDCC and other cons this year, it seems the reigning champ of animation costuming comes from Cartoon Network's "Adventure time" with a veritable army of Finns running amok with their blue t-shirts and white hats. Dragon*Con seems to be following this trend, but never fear as we have collected a wide variety of cartoon classics for your amusement!

Welcome back to our coverage of Dragon*Con 2012's cosplay! This go-around we're taking a closer look at a wide variety of costumes based on the heroes and villains of film. Movies can be incredibly influential, and what better way for a cosplayer to show their love of a character than by crafting a costume with their own two hands? By letting us photograph them, of course! That's right, we've got it all-- from half-naked, blue, cat-people to Hunter S. Thompson, and beyond!

Cosplayers have once again descended upon Atlanta as part of Dragon*Con 2012, and MTV Geek is joining in with our green-screen photo booth in order to bring you the very best of the costumed-goodness! While fantasy, anime, and steampunk all have huge cosplay factions represented at the show, comic book heroes are still very prevalent-- just not as much as at a con like SDCC-- and right now we're taking a closer look at some of the best costumes based on characters from the DC Comics pantheon. As noted in the title, it seems the classic looks of the characters still ring true to these DIY costumers, with very few looks coming from the current "New 52" style. Maybe it's the uncomfortably high collars...
