Ever since Frozen released there’s been a lot of stunning Elsa cosplay. This one, however, likely takes the cake. Not only has Tomia created an impressive screen accurate cosplay of Elsa’s coronation garb, but also an impressive screen accurate cosplay of Elsa’s ice dress. Plus! As if this all couldn’t be more impressive, she and Garam & Dall worked on this incredible photo series where she transforms from one into the other! See them all at Fashionably Geek.
No, this isn’t Marvel’s first attempt at a Rescue/Pepper Potts figure. This is Chris Hooton’s (aka Sabretooth) modification of one of Mattel’s Monster High dolls into Iron Man. Or Iron Girl, as he calls the figure. Aghast proportions aside, I’d buy one wouldn’t you? [The Mary Sue]
