ABOVE: 500 lb life size Darth Vader Cake. He was served at the 501st Legion Banquet on Friday night as part of the Star Wars Celebration VI event. Also of note is Vader’s light saber, which was a single, solid piece of watermelon flavored poured sugar. Impressive. [OakleadCakes]
Cosplayer Farrah DeFulio brings it with Tron: Legacy body paint done by Allyson Averell. You definitely need to be as fit as Farrah to pull this look off. [CBM]
For the superhero who has everything, but a ring. Sorry to the supes who aren’t named Thor, Spiderman, or The Punisher. You’ll just have to make your own. [Fashionably Geek]

Just when you thought Iron Man couldn’t get any cooler, he’s made out of LEGOs. [Cheezburger]
If you think Darth Maul has been done to death, then why not go as Savage Opress (above), Darth Maul’s brother? What I like the most about this costume is the samurai inspirations. In truth, since red is my favorite color, I still would choose Darth Maul. Plus, you get that cool light saber. [Fashionably Geek]

Ever wonder what life would be like if Michonne, Buffy, Hermione, Katniss, Lisbeth, and Bella Swan all lived together? Yeah, me neither. [Cheezburger]

I’ve long held the belief that cats are harbingers of doom, and here is more evidence. Usually they just try to smother their owners in their sleep by stealing their breath, but they also like to warn them of ax murders lurking in the backyard. Jason Voorhees, I see you!

Zombies like dogs, too! [Neatorama]
