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.

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!
