It seems like every time I find some good female Link or Princess Zelda cosplay to post, I am always asking myself if I post it too often.  I have posted some great female Link cosplay in the past such as this female Link cosplay and this one just to give a couple of examples.  But I wonder if maybe I do it too often?  I kind of feel like I do but then I remember just how much I love women with pointy ears and then I stop caring and post more.  Well, I found some more great female Link cosplay inspired by Ocarina of Time and thanks to the fact that I am a sucker for pointy ears, here is yet another female Link cosplay post!

This lovely lady Link cosplay is done by the cosplayer Lolita Zombie and these cool pictures were taken by Photographers in Philadelphia.  I think the pictures fit nicely with the cosplay even if she doesn’t really feel in the environments (Photoshop can’t make everything look natural).  I especially like the inclusion of Navi in the one picture.

It always irritates me when things I really want aren’t sold in the US, mainly because the cost of getting something imported is insane.  I’ve been known to pay upwards of $45 just to get a DVD shipped from Europe since it couldn’t be found in the US.  Its not very often I have stuff imported (I would quickly go broke if I did it a lot), but sometimes it is just necessary and I suspect that this is one of those times because the Super Mario Bros shoes below are awesome!

In the past, I have posted some really cool Super Mario Bros themed shoes including some neat Super Mario Bros heels (here is another pair I like just as much) as well as some Paper Mario VANS sneakers.  However, unlike those, these Super Mario Bros themed Converse One Star shoes are going to be available to the masses, at least assuming you live in Japan.

These shoes come in red or green depending on if you want the old 8-bit Mario or 8-bit Bowser and the feature a Super Star on the side replacing the normal Converse Star.

Apparently if you can find them in Japan, they are running in the area of 20,000 yen or $195.  At that price, I think I can live without them because by the time I got done with the import costs and everything, I wouldn’t be surprised if the total cost ended up closer to $300 and that is just crazy for Mario shoes.  I will never pay that much for shoes!

I’ve seen people do all sorts of cool makeup jobs with their eyes and stuff (like the Riddler eye makeup and the Spider-Man eye makeup I have posted in the past), but never have I seen or even heard of lip makeup.  As well done and cool as these Ewok lips are, I really hope this isn’t a trend that catches on because its just a little too weird for me.  No matter how geeky the lips may be, I just don’t seen myself seeing lip makeup like this and saying ‘I got to get me some of that!’  Please tell me I am not alone in feeling this way!

Fashion trend of not, these Ewok lips are still great and they were made by special effects makeup artist Crystal Effin Overland.  She is clearly quite talented with makeup!  I can’t even imagine how much restraint it took to not accidentally lick her lips and ruin this work of Ewok art.  I don’t think I could do it because I am slightly crazy about how my lips feel at all times.  I’m weird like that but I’m sure you have your quirks too!

Maybe its because I’m not a big fan of babies, but I’ve never been one to go crazy about cute baby outfits like many people I know.  Generally speaking, I think the prices that baby outfits cost is insane, especially when they only fit in them for such a short amount of time.  It just doesn’t feel like you really get your moneys worth.  However, I managed to come across a onesie that it not only fairly reasonably priced, but it is the perfect for any Star Trek fan!

The amazing Star Trek lovers over at ThinkGeek are selling these adorable Star Trek: The Next Generation uniform onesies for just $19.99!  They come in red, blue and gold and in a variety of sizes ranging from 6 to 18 months.  There is no guarantee that your kid will grow up to love Star Trek: The Next Generation as much as you do but with a onesie like this, I’d say you have improved your odds.  But be warned, referring to your baby by their rank in public might result in people making fun of you.

One of the things I always thought was a bit silly when I used to watch the Pokemon cartoons (back before they introduced a ton of new Pokemon I just couldn’t bring myself to care about) was that every city had a Nurse Joy and an Officer Jenny.  It seemed like kind of an odd element in the show but still cool to see the same characters everywhere.  However, I’m guessing most people weren’t as intrigued by the idea as I was because I don’t think I have seen cosplay of either of them until today.

Cosplayer Siren’s Belle is the beautiful girl sporting this great Officer Jenny cosplay. I think she does a great job bringing the cartoon character to life although I can’t help but think that it would be better if she had Officer Jenny’s Growlithe with her.  Seeing one without the other just feels a little odd but since Growlithe isn’t real, I guess its not a big deal.  Also, the photography is pretty good which was done by Beethy.

Now I really feel the urge to go watch the old Pokemon cartoon.  Off to Netflix I go!

The ‘Dogs Playing Poker’ painting series by C.M. Cooling is incredibly popular but it has never quite been my taste when it comes to art.  I think they are well done but when it comes to art, I guess I am more of a Van Gogh and Bob Ross kind of guy.  However, this poker dogs t-shirt featuring many of the most iconic cartoon dogs is something I would love to wear!

The stylish people over at BustedTees are selling this Poker Dogs t-shirt for just $20!  It features some of the most famous cartoon dogs in history playing poker including Snoopy, Scooby-Doo, Pluto, Odie, Brian and more.

If you grew up watching any the cartoons with these dogs whether it was Scooby-Doo, Garfield’s Odie, Mickey’s Pluto or Peter Griffin’s Brian, I think you will find something to love about this shirt.  I grew up watching all of them although I have no clue who the two dogs are that are closest to the viewer with their backs toward you.  I know I have seen the one on the left before but I have no idea who he is and I have never seen the purple one on the right.  If anybody would like to educate me about them in the comments below, I would greatly appreciate it!

While I appreciate great cosplay of all types, Zelda cosplay is probably my favorite.  In general, I think the costumes tend to be more elegant than others and if you have been reading Fanboy Fashion or my other sites like Global Geek News for a while, you know I have a major pointy ear fetish.  Well, apparently it is my lucky day because I came across some amazing Princess Zelda and Princess Hilda cosplay inspired by Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

The two stunningly beautiful cosplayers are Mandalynn (Princess Zelda) and Guhzoontight (Princess Hilda).  The photographer who took some truly awesome shots with these two is Alexis McNichol.

Perhaps the most impressive part of this amazing cosplay is that it was Mandalynn’s first cosplay and Guhzoontight’s second so its not like they are even pros at this.  I’m not sure how much time they spent making this cosplay but I’d say it was well worth it as both costumes turned out looking fabulous!

This has inspired me to put Watch Dogs on hold for a little bit just so I can finish the last half of A Link Between Worlds because it really is a great game.

UPDATE (5/30/14 10:23am): It looks like the only size they have left is a men’s small and I’m not sure if they will get the other sizes back in stock.

Until the chain broke a few times to the point that it was not really that comfortable to get on and off anymore, I used to wear some Gears of War dog tags whenever I would leave the house that I got at some midnight pre-launch event for the first game at a GameStop that I used to live next door to.  While I enjoyed wearing the dog tags and the compliments I would get because of it, to let you in on a little secret, I have never played more than a couple of hours of the first game and I have never played any of the Gears of War games after that.  Its not that I don’t enjoy the game because I did enjoy what time I spent with it, there were just games I enjoyed playing more at the time and I never went back to give the game a proper play though (yet I still bought Gears of War 2 and 3).

Well, for those that are bigger fans of Gears of War than I am or if you want to do like I did for several years and just masquerade as one, I have found the perfect shirt for you which is currently on sale!

The super nerdy folks over at SuperHeroStuff.com are selling this badass Gears of War 2 Marching t-shirt for just $12 right now!  I don’t know how long the sale will last before it goes back up to its regular $20 so if you love the game, I would jump on this deal now!

With Father’s Day just a couple of weeks away (June 15th for those who don’t know), have you figured out what you are getting your father or the dad in your life for the special day?  To be honest, it hadn’t even crossed my mind yet as I am one of those people that doesn’t get whatever gift I am getting until the last minute (also known as the last day possible for Amazon to get it to me on time).  However, for those of you who aren’t horrible procrastinators like I am and know the dad they are getting a gift for is a gamer, then I think I have found the t-shirt for you and it is dirt cheap!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this really cool Super Mario 8-Bit BBQ Father’s Day t-shirt for only $5!  The shirt features Mario doing a little grilling with the words ‘Father’s Day 2014 ThinkGeek” under it.

I’m not even a father and I want this shirt, especially for only $5!  I’m not sure how I look in that much red but it is still a really cool shirt.

Maybe its just me but it feels like with every day that goes by, I lose a little more hope of seeing another Ghostbusters movie get made.  I know it has been in the works for a while but with Bill Murray not being interested in being in it and the death of Harold Ramis a couple of months ago, I am losing hope.  However, even if we don’t see another movie, there are always the old movies and cartoons to watch as well as video games to play.  Not only that, but here is some great female Ghostbuster cosplay to enjoy!

Cosplayer Maeghan Eyre teamed up with Ghostbusters News to do a little cosplay photoshoot in a library with photographer Jason Fitzsimmons.  Both the cosplay and the photography turned out great!

Not only is the costume good, but the proton pack and other equipment looks great!  I’m also kind of curious to know who she got to sign the proton pack.  To see more pictures, hit up the source link below.
