By Jove, I think the chap behind this cosplay video is on to something! As much as I love seeing cosplay shown off on the world wide interwebs, I have to admit that the formula for creating such videos is becoming a bit formulaic and stale. But a video that has random cosplayers at the Wrestlemania of all dress-up events singing along to a classic song? Genius!

I dig the cosplay scene. Most of you are well aware of this, as I happen to theme my hobby around a certain nocturnal avenger who punches crime and mental disorders with rubber fists of vengeance. It’s hard work making an outfit, and at the end of the day, you can be certain of one thing: Some other bugger is going to put all your hard work to shame. And honestly, I’d have no problem being overshadowed by this mechanised masterpiece.

Gamescom may not have been exciting for those of you back at home in terms of big reveals and surprises, but being there was an absolute blast! Picture the rAge expo and all the floor space it has. Now multiply that by say, ten to fifteen. It’s massive! What would a giant gaming expo be without a bit of cosplay?

It wouldn’t be a proper comic book convention without a Deadpool running around causing chaos, which is usually why you’ll find at least a dozen such annoying mercs with a mouth at any event that involves dressing up as comic book characters. Still, if there’s one great Deadpool out there, it has to be D Piddy, who crashed SDCC again this year.

Folks often ask me why I cosplay, and honestly, I have no idea myself. It’s just something that I genuinely enjoy doing. That, and it gives me an excuse to venture outside in my regular clothing at least a couple of times a year. If there’s one cosplay convention that I’d love to hit though, it has to be the San Diego Comic Con. Check it out!

REBEL SCUM! Sith lords may have all that dark side power, but even the rule of two isn’t enough to enforce the iron grip of the Empire. What the Sith needed, was an army that could spread their law across the galaxy, taking names and kicking ass across the cosmos. But sometimes, being bad can be good. Just ask the 501st Legion, an international army of Star Wars fans and cosplayers who now have an outpost right here in South Africa.

It’s just another typical day in Australia. Somebody is on the train, on their daily commute to work. Suddenly, just in the corner of their eye, they spot a man in red and black, and he has a large black bag and samurai swords. PANIC! CALL THE POLICE! Reuben Rose had the fuzz pull him off the train because he appeared to be dangerous. What they found instead, was just a guy cosplaying Deadpool.

So you own all the Halo games. You’re a king when it comes to online action. Your tea-bagging skills are the stuff of legend. But do you live your Master Chief life outside of your console? Are you stylin’ and profilin’ enough to jump on a motorcycle, pretend it’s a Banshee and take a spin while wearing the iconic green and gold of your hero?

Hey, it’s not just the US of A (and us!) who have cool cosplay events you know. Over in London, the annual Comic Con 2014 Expo hit the streets, gathering a ton of talent from that side of the pond. And as usual, Sneaky Zebra were there to capture all of it.

Look, if I had to bring home a date from the comic book world, I’d most likely wind up being used as plant fodder, robbed or an unwitting victim in a Joker scheme if any of the ladies were from Gotham City. Still, it might be worth it.

You guys know I played and loved Transistor, the latest game from Supergiant Games, the makers of indie darling, Bastion. It's a fantastic game that I'd recommend playing on PS4 for those who have one - the sounds from the controller speaker make it next level excellent. But some people have gone beyond that with their creativity.

I will always consider Futurama to be one of the greatest cartoons ever made, thanks to its mix of real and fictional science, great characters and the hate-sponge known as Dr Zoidberg. You all know and love him, from his memetic quotes through to his trademark scuttle. But are you ready to meet a real-word version of the popular medical malpractice master?

If you were hanging around a local purveyor of juxtaposed images on a printed page this past Saturday, you may have noticed that those shops were rather busy. And also crowded with people dressed in some odd garb. In other words, my people. Free Comic Book Day brought out some fantastic cosplay once again. Check it all out after the jump.

It may be Star Wars day on Sunday, but it’s Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, and that takes precedence in my book. Dyslexic aliens be damned, this is one of my favourite days of the year and not because I’m a completely cheap bastard.
