One of the bad parts of working in a junkyard is that my shoes don’t tend to stay nice for very long.  So while I may not skimp on my shoes when it comes to comfort, I don’t bother going for really cool looking shoes because they will end up dirty and greasy after a day or two.  However, I still greatly admire really well done hand-painted shoes.  Speaking of amazing hand-painted shoes, I think perhaps my favorite shoe artist is probably Bobs Made.  In the past, I have posted a couple pairs of their shoes including some Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker shoes and some electrifying Pikachu shoes.  Today, I found some beautiful Legend of Zelda Link shoes from them I thought you guys would love.

These amazing hand-painted Legend of Zelda Link shoes from Bobs Made were made for the boyfriend of a girl named Kristina.  They were made with a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars (apparently the canvas on these shoes is perfect for painting because they seem to be the preferred shoe by shoes artists), LUCAS acrylic paints, and Faber Castell waterproof pens.

These are truly some stunning shoes and perhaps the best looking Zelda shoes I have seen!

Its not very often that I come across cosplay that is so intimidating that I have a real fear of it giving me nightmares but I stumbled across just that sort of cosplay today and I knew I had to share it because it is just that good and just that scary!

Since God of War is my favorite franchise of games, I have posted quite a bit of Kratos cosplay in the past including the recent post of a female Kratos with flaming red hair, a guy that pulls off a pretty good Kratos and some rather beautiful gender bending Kratos cosplay.  Well, this is the first time I have come across some Kratos cosplay that I can honestly say is not only amazing but scares the crap out of me!

This amazing and nightmare inducing female Kratos cosplay was done by Miss Sinister Cosplay.  Congrats to her for scaring the crap out of me!  Speaking of people who deserve props for these amazing cosplay photos, I want to recognize the people who helped make this so amazing including Hex Mortis who made the Blades of Chaos (the best I have ever seen in any Kratos cosplay) and ram, Samhain Contact Lenses who made the nightmare inducing contact lenses, Leather Bound who made the outfit, Kurt Allen and Sean McCarthy who did the body paint, and Foto Mike who took this stunning photography!  Amazing job guys!

Tomorrow is the big day!  Doctor Who returns with Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor and I couldn’t be more excited!  I am really curious to see how he does as the new Doctor and I am looking forward to seeing if he is as dark as everybody seems to be hyping him up to be.  Speaking of the 12th Doctor, despite having dozens of Doctor Who t-shirts, I can’t say I have any featuring him but thanks to the shirt below, I can have one with not only him, but all of the Doctors!  Well, not counting the War Doctor that is.

The incredible folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this exclusive Doctor Who You Don’t Know Me t-shirt for just $19.99!  This amazing shirt features the 12th Doctor and the phrase “You don’t know me” but when the lights are turned out, it glows in the dark and all of the other Doctors appear with the rest of the message which says “but you will”.

I have a few similar glow in the dark shirts ranging from a clever Star Trek style clocking device shirt to a Cylon shirt which glows in the dark and if you are like me, when you get a sweet shirt like this Doctor Who shirt, you will spend hours in the bathroom flipping the lights on and off just to enjoy the glow in the dark features.  So just some advice, make sure you clear your calendar for the evening you get this because you will be playing with the lights.

Although I have never got around to finishing any of the Borderlands games, from the time I have spent at least with the first one, I think they are quite good.  Perhaps if my schedule will allow, I will get around to finishing the first game so that when the pre-sequel comes out in October, I can play it before going into the sequel since that seems to be the most logical order to play them in.  Until then, some great Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel cosplay should wet the appetite for the upcoming game!

The stunning and very detailed Athena cosplay from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was done by the cosplayer It’s Raining Neon.  Apparently she is also responsible for her own photography here which is even more impressive!  I’m not sure how long this stunning cosplay took to make but it was definitely worth every second of effort!

Speaking of Borderlands cosplay, if you like this, you should definitely check out the Borderlands cel shaded jeans that I posted last week because they will blow you away!

What are you most looking forward to about the new game?  Let us know in the comments below!

For as much as I enjoy going to various cons to check out the cool panels and meet the celebrities whose work I enjoy, my favorite part is easily the cosplay.  It is always a thrill to be walking through the convention halls and pass people dressed as Super Mario, the Doctor, Darth Vader, even a few TARDIS’.  Well, speaking of some amazing cosplay which I wish I had seen in person, I found some cool pictures of some amazing Rule 63 Kratos and Ganon cosplay.

These pictures take by Mike Kowalek feature some of if not the best female Ganon (from the Legend of Zelda franchise) and Kratos (from the God of War games) cosplay I have ever seen.  The beautiful woman cosplaying as Ganon is Ely Renae and the equally beautiful woman cosplaying as Kratos is Emma Lu.  Apparently these lovely ladies were spotted recently at Otakon in Baltimore.

I don’t know how much time and effort was put into these costumes but it was absolutely worth it as they are both stunning!

I will admit that I never got around to finishing the first Borderlands game much less the second one.  I enjoyed the time I spent with the game, I just never went back to it for some reason although after seeing these jeans, I might have to go back and play it this weekend.

I’ve always been a fan of women in some nice fitting jeans but one cosplayer has taken that idea to the next level and painted some cel shaded jeans for some Borderlands cosplay she is working on.

Cosplayer Kirameku has been working on some Borderlands inspired Nisha the Lawbringer cosplay and she has uploaded some pictures of her progress showing the jeans she has been working on.  Using a mixture of Textilcolor and water, she has done an absolutely stunning job of recreating the cel shading style of graphics from the Borderlands games.  I don’t know how much time she has spent getting it to look that good with that level of detail and shadowing and such but it was time well spent because it looks amazing!

If these is just the pants, I can’t wait to see what the rest of this Nisha the Lawbringer cosplay looks like!

Despite being a life long fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I have absolutely no desire to see Michael Bay’s hideous incarnation of them and passed up the opportunity to see the new movie this weekend in favor of Guardians of the Galaxy (which was a pretty good movie and worth seeing in 3D).  While the new movie doesn’t appeal to me, I will always love the old school TMNT I grew up with!

I can’t say I ever read the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books, but I loved the cartoons and played the crap out of the NES TMNT games.  Speaking of those old turtles, if you loved them, I found the perfect shirt for you!

The old school Turtles lovers over at 80sTees.com are selling this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book t-shirt for as low as $10!  The shirt is $10 for sizes of XL and smaller and then the price goes up to $14 or $16 for sizes larger than that.  To make the shirt look like one of the old comics, it even features a price and volume number.

Other than trying to catch the old Bob Ross painting show on PBS on Saturday mornings, I can’t say I pay a tremendous amount of attention to paintings.  However, I have always been a fan of Van Gogh and especially his Starry Night painting which is even the wallpaper for some of my devices like my iPod Touch.  When  you combine that with my love for Super Mario, its safe to say you have come up with a t-shirt design that I can’t pass up!

The fantastic people over at TeeFury are doing one of their twofury sales today where they put to shirts against each other to see which one sells more.  Todays competitors are Super Starry Night by Naolito and I’ll Always Protect You by Logan Feliciano, both of which you can get for $11 today only!  Whether you love Super Mario Bros, Bioshock or both, I suspect you will want at least one of these cool shirts (designs below)!

Don’t forget, even if you aren’t a big fan the colors of these shirts, they do have other options to choose from.  Speaking for myself, I am definitely getting the Mario shirt but I am torn between the shirt being black (I already have a hundred or so black shirts) or the navy blue which I like just as much.

Due to some back issues, I have always been a bit afraid to try Yoga as some of those moves (and by that I mean most of them) look like they would be pure torture for me.  However, even though I’m skeptical as to whether or not Yoga would be a good thing for me to try, I know there are a lot of people that do Yoga, especially women and for those women who also happen to love Star Wars, I have found the droid Yoga pants you have been looking for!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these awesome ladies R2-D2 Yoga pants for $39.99.  But wait!  Before you buy a pair, make sure to use the coupon code ‘DOTHEMATH’ which will score you 30% off!  That code is good through 8/10/14 so that should give you plenty of time to pick up these pants at a substantial discount.

There is also a size chart on the product’s page if you aren’t quite sure which size you need.  Whatever size that is, this is definitely the pair of droid pants you are looking for!

Now I am curious, do any of you do Yoga (or one of the many variations)?  If so, let me know in the comments below!  I am curious to know which style people prefer and how it has helped them.

Even though I love seeing funny photobombed pictures like everybody else, I have never had the guts to photobomb somebody.  I’m just not comfortable with the idea of ruining the special moment somebody is trying to capture by acting like an idiot.  Whenever I see somebody trying to take a picture, I do the polite thing and move out of the way until they are done.  Maybe some day I will do it but I just don’t think that is me as I tend to adhere pretty closely to the idea of treating others how I would like to be treated.  Anyway, speaking of funny photobombs, if you are a Star Wars fan, then I suspect you will love this funny shirt of Chewbacca photobombing Darth Vader and a couple of Stormtroopers with a giant #1 Rebels foam finger like you would see at a sports event.

The nerdy folks over at 80sTees are selling this hilarious Wookie Photobomb T-Shirt for $22.  Whether you are a Chewbacca or Darth Vader fan, I have a feeling that as long as you love Star Wars and have a sense of humor, you will love this shirt!  Also, this tee is tagless for those that care about such things.
