Carbon Troopers: Stormtrooper Armor Gets the Carbon Fiber Treatment

Leonard Carson had been toying with the idea of combining carbon fiber with stormtrooper armor for some time. He managed to convince three of his co-workers join his cause and this is the result. I have to say that these carbon troopers look quite impressive.

Cardboard Clone Trooper is a Perfect Clone

Check out this amazing Clone Trooper Halloween costume, that was made for a 10-year old by his Star Wars-loving dad Parrster. The most amazing thing is that it’s mostly made out of cardboard and papier-mâché. It definitely looks awesome. The only missing piece is the boots!

Shawn Thorsson’s Dead Space 2 RIG Suit Costume: Bet Yours Sucks Compared to His

This is more of a sci-fi cosplay costume than a Halloween costume, but if you’d wear this over the weekend, it would probably amaze anyone you’d come across. This awesome costume was made by Maker extraordinaire Shawn Thorsson, best known for those incredible HALO costumes (his Predator wasn’t half bad either).

Hello Kitty Ghostbusters Proton Pack: There’s Something Strange in Your Neighborhood

I would have never thought about combining Hello Kitty with Ghostbusters, but apparently somebody has. This custom proton pack was recently seen at this year’s NYC Comic Con. A lot of time went into it to make it look this good.

adidas Stormtrooper and Other Fun Cosplay from Dragon*Con 2011

This is kind of funny because I never thought that any company would sponsor The Dark Side, but here you have it, the adidas Stormtrooper, ready to die for Darth Vader, while promoting the popular athletic-wear brand. Actually, I like the red color of the Stormtrooper costume. It almost makes me want to have one too, minus the adidas logo. At least he looks like he’ll be comfy while he runs in this armored tracksuit.

Chinese Dude Builds Awesome Iron Man Mark I Suit

This Iron Man Mark I suit was built by a Chinese guy named Wang Xiao Kang, and he built it from scratch. That’s saying a lot because this suit looks pretty darn great. Wang says that he had no prior DIY experience, but from the look of his suit, it’s pretty much on the mark when it comes to faithfulness.

Reptilian Mad Pax Backpack: Get Ready to Rumble Like a Koopa

The first thing that popped in my mind when I saw this backpack is the Koopas, from Super Mario Bros. As we all know, Koopas are the race of turtles against which Mario has to fight. For some reason, this backpack includes spikes, so you’re probably closer to being Bowser or Iggy Koopa than just a plain old Koopa.
