Grethe B spent 10 months putting together this incredible outfit modeled after Monster Hunter’s female Rathalos blademaster armor — she completed it just in time for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate’s release!
She says it’s a little hard to move in the outfit, but I’m amazed that she can move at all considering it’s hard to tell there’s even a person under all that armor. You can see photos of Grethe creating the outfit here.
After picking up an Invincibility Leaf and some gold spandex, White Raccoon Mario showed up for Sunday’s New Super Mario Bros. 2 launch event at Nintendo World.

Kid Icarus sword props by ThePropShop. These are “made from wood, pink insulation foam, pvc and leather. Can be used as two swords as well as a bow.” I’m pretty sure the “use” implied here is display rather than fighting. I mean, you could try to fight somebody with these, but you’d be out $170.
Speaking of Pit swords, I thought PikminLink did a pretty dang great job on the ones she had at PAX East.

Sad Samus reacts to Metroid Dread’s absence from E3 yet again. Cheer up, Samus! I heard there was a Metroid-themed Wii U demo that was shown, so there’s that.

Outstanding Tokyo Game Show cosplayers. We don’t usually post these cosplay round-ups, but I saw a lot of great outfits while trawliing through photo sets for TGS images to feature here.
Photo credits (yeah, a lot of Dragon Quest stuff):
- Street Fighters, Air Man, & Mimic - Joseph Yuso
- Slime Knight & Slime Stack - Kotaku (great gallery!)
- Dreamcast - Camden Stein

“Ooooh a puzzle!” by PA-X. Here’s a puzzle: how do I reconcile my desire to own a Professor Layton top hat with the absolute knowledge that I’d be far too shy to actually wear it (and justifiably so)?
I also like this photo of the same pair.

Love Plus cosplay spotted at Nagoya’s World Cosplay Summit 2010 last weekend. I’m uncertain if those are men or women inside those DSes/schoolgirl outfits.
Either way, it’s frightening.
Amazon is currently selling Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, Kyle Gray and EA Tiburon’s creative platformer/puzzler hybrid, for just $9.96! The sale is through a third-party retailer, though, so you’ll need to pay a few extra bucks for shipping.
These two discounts are straight from Amazon:
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers (Wii) for $19.99 - deal of the day
- Overlord: Minions (DS) for $8.88

Want to look like Travis Touchdown? More accurately, want to look like this mannequin? Rising Star Games and CVG have partnered for a UK-only sweepstakes whose prize is a full Travis Touchdown costume, including:
- Bizarre Jelly 5 shirt
- Red leather jacket
- Sideburns (apparently they’re separate!)
- Red and white shoes
- Studded belt
- Katana belt… thing
- Beam katana
The contest is connected to the NMH-themed “Airport51” store that was open in London for a week. As with all online contests, I would really like for a TC reader to win this one! I’m sure we have readers who both live in the UK and covet Travis’s look.
Unintentional Zombie Panic in Wonderland cosplay, modeled by Deanne Marsh and shot by Sito Alvina (click for a larger image). I was tempted to also call this cosplay for Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ, as both games feature gun-toting versions of the fairy tale character, but Red’s outfit in Zombie BBQ’s is much more immodest than the one in this photo.
[Update: As several commenters pointed out, this is actually cosplay for Darkstalkers’s Baby Bonnie Hood!]
So, Zombie Panic in Wonderland released in Japan last month and hits Europe later this month; how much longer before this on-rails shooter comes to North America?
Most of the Neku Sakuraba cosplay I’ve seen is god awful, but the fancy photography accompanying this one makes this getup look slick. Anyway, Amazon has discounted several portable Square Enix RPGs, which you may want to pick up if you didn’t already buy them when we featured them dozens of times before:
- The World Ends With You: $9.78
- Final Fantasy IV: $9.78
- Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII: $9.78
The sale ends today, so grab’em soon!

Princess Zelda cosplayer at Youmacon 2009, captured by Michael Carian. Compare the two shots with this image and marvel at the power of proper lighting and a talented photographer; the outfit’s cheap material and accessories are almost convincing in Carian’s samples.
This reminds me that the packaging art for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is so much better in Europe — I love the princess’s ghostly appearance atop the train:
The U.S. boxart has none of that.
