Above: Gender-swapped cosplay has been all the rage lately, but I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anyone swap genders of the fierce Khal Drogo and his Khaleesi, Daenerys Stormborn, of the House Targaryen. This is awesome! Way to be first, Psykitten and Steven Meissner! (The Mary Sue)
Nothing better to hold up, and spice up, your stockings then sexy garters featuring Wolverine, The TARDIS, Harley Quinn, Harry Potter, and more! See more at Fashionably Geek.
Wow, this is some jaw-droppin’ cosplay. From Diablo III, this wizardess is one of many impressive costumes captured at Dragon*Con by the equally impressive photographer, LJinto.
The evolution of the Halloween costumes. It’s so sad, isn’t it? And I don’t mind a lady in a sexy outfit. Obviously. But it’s sad seeing the $50+ asking on price on such unoriginal, usually poor quality, sexy Halloween costumes. Sexy bee, really? more frightening evolutions can be found here. (TDW)
Be amazed at what two lonely, old men can accomplish! Actually, yes, really be impressed because these dudes built this incredible LEGO Batcave all by themselves, no instructions needed. See it up close on their Flickr. (Geekologie)
No matter what you think of ponies, this song about conventions has something for anyone. No matter how hard your heart if you have any fond memories from a convention you’ll be singing along come the end. (The Mary Sue)
This intro to The Simpsons recreated in real life is full of. SO. MUCH. WIN. (TDW)
