It has been a long time since I have watched the Pokemon cartoon, but I used to love coming home from school as a kid and watching it in the afternoons.  I already loved playing the games before I got into the cartoon but the cartoon was pretty good as well.  However, over time I just stopped watching it for the same reason I stopped playing the games (until the latest X/Y release) and that was because I didn’t care for all of the new Pokemon.  I guess I just have a bit of an connection with the original set of Pokemon and adding more beyond that never really set right with me.  Well, speaking of the original Pokemon and characters, I stumbled across some awesome Misty cosplay that I thought you guys would like!

Ryuu Lavitz Cosplay is the fantastic cosplayer sporting this adorable Misty cosplay that even features her beloved Pokemon Staryu.  The photographer for these awesome pictures was Jim Brady.

Both the Misty cosplay and the Staryu look great in my opinion.  She actually looks a lot like a girl I know except her skin is a little lighter, her legs aren’t as long and I’m pretty sure that hair is a wig.  Otherwise, they would look identical.

If you ever see me in person, chances are you will never see me without a hat on.  Largely due to my very light sensitive eyes, I never leave the house without a hat and sunglasses on.  As a result, people tend to see me as someone who never takes their hat off.  Being a hat guy, I usually go through about 2-3 hats a year because they get dirty, sweat stained and rather disgusting after about 6 months or so.  While I still have several months of use left on the God of War hat I have been sporting, I’ve been on the hunt for its replacement and that is when I came across these cool Star Trek athletic hats.

The incredible folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these awesome Star Trek athletic hats for $24.99!  You have the choice of red, blue or gold and they are adjustable with a clip and pull tab in the back.

One of these hats is definitely going to be my next hat, I just can’t decide which one I want!  I’m debating between either red or blue.  If you get one of these hats, let me know in the comments below which color you go with!

After finishing Assassin’s Creed: Liberation on my Vita a couple of weeks ago, I’ve taken a bit of break from Assassin’s Creed to play some Age of Mythology: Extended Edition which came out on Steam recently before I go back and finally get around to playing some Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  While I am engrossed in AoM at the moment, cosplay like this Assassin’s Creed IV inspired Edward Kenway has me thinking about putting it on hold for a little while just to play some Assassin’s Creed.  Perhaps that will happen but I’m enjoying reliving the Age of Mythology days too much right now to give it up.

For the Assassin’s Creed fans out there, I suspect you will love this Edward Kenway cosplay by cosplayer Kobuz Worknest.  The photography which is also quite impressive was done by KamelotVIII.

If the pictures below have you craving more incredible Edward Kenway cosplay, I’d suggest checking out some previous posts including one Edward Kenway cosplay with the best cosplay photography I have seen as well as one with some great female Edward Kenway cosplay.

It never ceases to amaze me just what works of art can be accomplished on the tiny canvas that is a person’s fingernails.  Whether it is the exploding TARDIS fingernail art I posted in the past or the Legend of Zelda nail art I have also posted, I am always blown away by the amount of detail that some people put into painting their nails.  Well, speaking of amazing fingernail art, I just stumbled upon some great Spider-Man fingernail art that I’m sure you guys will enjoy just as much as I did!

This awesome Spider-Man manicure was created by Starfish on the Beach.  While all of the nails are impressive, I think I like the one on the middle finger the best with the Spider-Man logo showing from underneath a jacket or something that is being unzipped.  Trying to get that tiny detail on that zipper couldn’t have been easy!

When I see rings like the one below, it really makes me wish that I could stand to wear rings.  Anybody who knows me knows that I don’t like to have anything on my fingers.  It doesn’t feel comfortable for me and it just seems like it is getting in the way.  However, the main reason why I don’t wear any kind of ring and never will is because I have a fear that once I put it on, I will never be able to get it off.  I guess I have just seen too many people with rings that have had their fingers fatten up to the point that they couldn’t take the ring off if they wanted to and I don’t want to be one of those people.  But, just because I will never wear a ring, doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate cool ones when I see them and this Star Trek engagement ring is definitely one of the coolest ones I have seen!

This stunning Star Trek inspired ring was made by the very talented jewelry designer Paul Michael of Paul Michael Designs.  And, if you happen to be looking for that perfect ring to propose to that special Star Trek fan in your life, you are in luck because this ring is available for sale!

You can get this awesome Star Trek engagement ring over on Etsy for as little as $595.  Of course, depending on your choice of metal used and whether you want a diamond or topaz stone, it can go as high as $3,890.

If you decide to boldly go and propose with this awesome ring, send some pictures to us because we would love to share your story!

Considering the fact that I have dozens of Doctor Who t-shirts (right now I am wearing one with Super Mario trying to steal the plunger thing off of a Dalek), it is a little odd that I don’t have any featuring the War Doctor.  I suppose that could be because until now, I don’t think I have seen any shirts with the War Doctor on it.  Well, if you are like me and happen to be in desperate need of a t-shirt featuring Grandad, I have stumbled upon the perfect shirt for you!

The folks over at Hot Topic are selling this War Doctor Timey Wimey? t-shirt for just $16.40 which is 20% off of the normal $20.50 thanks to a site wide 20% off sale going on right now.  So unless you like paying more for what you buy, I’d pick this shirt up now before the sale ends!

Its unfortunate that we didn’t get to see more of John Hurt’s Doctor because I rather liked him in the 50th anniversary special.  I think he did a great job with it.  However, if I had my choice of which Doctor would get more episodes, I’d really like to see more of Paul McGann because I think I could really like him.  That leads me to the question, which Doctor do you wish we got to see more of?  Let me know in the comments below!

Some of my favorite people are those who love something so much that they aren’t afraid to show it in what they wear.  That kind of goes without saying on a blog called Fanboy Fashion but sometimes it can be helpful to point out the obvious.  Of course it would be kind of silly if I wasn’t one of these people myself!  I am one of those people about many things ranging from retro video game consoles to Battlestar Galactica.  Well, without a doubt, the franchise I demonstrate my love for the most with the things I wear is Doctor Who.  Considering I am wearing one of my dozens (yes, dozens!) of Doctor Who shirts while I am writing this should give you an idea for just how much I love it.

Are you a big Doctor Who enthusiast like I am?  If so, you should definitely be sporting one of these Whovian t-shirts!

The fantastic folks over at TShirtBordello are selling this cool Whovian t-shirt for just $14.99 (more for bigger sizes)!  It features all kinds of iconic Doctor Who related aliens and items ranging from the TARDIS and Sonic Screwdriver (because what Whovian shirt would be complete without them) to K-9 and the Pandorica!  This shirt is sure to bring back a ton of fond Doctor Who memories for any Whovian that sees it!

Speaking of Whovians that see this shirt, I have this shirt myself and wear it often and whenever I run into a Doctor Who fan in a restaurant or at the gas station or wherever, they are always complimenting me on the fantastic shirt so I can say with confidence that this shirt will bring you a lot of attention from fellow Whovians!

Have you ever wanted to go out on the town looking like the TARDIS?  Well, if you are a woman or at least a cross dressing dude, now you can!  Who says the only time you can wear something like this is at a convention?!  This TARDIS dress is perfect for wearing to almost anything from a date to a wedding.  Well, perhaps I wouldn’t advise wearing it to a wedding because unless you are the bride, you will probably attract more attention than the bride with a dress like this and taking the spotlight away from the bride on her wedding day is not the smartest idea.  However, if you are going to a Doctor Who themed wedding, I’d still say go for it!  Actually, the thought of all of the brides maids wearing TARDIS dresses sounds like a pretty cool idea!  Anyway…

The cool geeks over at ThinkGeek are selling this cute TARDIS A-line dress for just $39.99.  Also, if you can find a little something else there to buy, you can get 10% off your order of $40 or more this weekend with the coupon code ‘CLIPPY’ (Good thru 4/6/14).  This dress is 100% cotton, machine washable and made in the good ol’ USA instead of by kids in China.  Don’t forget to check the size chart too if you want to make sure you get the size of dress that best fits you.

I think if you really want to complete the outfit, the best way you can do that with some exploding TARDIS heels.  However, I should note that my sense of fashion sucks so perhaps I’m not the person you should be looking to when it comes to what shoes match this dress.  Still, I like the idea.

It hasn’t been easy, but lately I have cut back quite a bit on the number of t-shirts I buy because I have already outgrown my closet and have a stack of shirts as tall as my ceiling so the last thing I need is more shirts.  However, when I come across cool Doctor Who shirts like the ones below, I just can’t fight that temptation.  The Let’s Play shirt isn’t really my style as I am not much of one for the cartoony look but I rather like the selfie shirt that is a play on the famous Oscar selfie.

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are doing one of their twofury sales where they put two shirts against each other and today they are selling these cool Doctor Selfie and Let’s Play Doctor t-shirts for just $11.

Currently, the selfie shirt appears to be outselling the other shirt by around 2:1 so it looks like I’m not the only one who prefers it.  If you get one or both of these shirts, let us know in the comments below which one you bought.  I’m always interested in knowing what my readers like so I know what to post more of in the future.

One of the Legend of Zelda games I really need to take the time to go back and play is Majora’s Mask.  I was obsessed with Ocarina of Time when it came out on the Nintendo 64 and I still play it on my 3DS but I never did play Majora’s Mask.  I had honestly never even knew the game until I was on to the next generation of consoles and when I did hear about it, I heard it wasn’t as good as Ocarina of Time and it was harder so I never really gave much thought to tracking the game down and giving it a try.  However, after going to the Legend of Zelda symphony and hearing some of the music from it and then seeing this incredible full-back tattoo, now I really want to go back and play the game.

This absolutely stunning Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask tattoo belongs to tumblr user TheGreatKeaton who is easily the biggest Majora’s Mask fan I have ever seen.  The tattoo’s mind blowing design was created by Krystian Marciniak and it was inked by Anson Eastin at the Forever Tattoo Parlour in Cape Coral, Florida.  Congrats to all involved for this incredible Zelda masterpiece!
