Despite rumors to the contrary, Fanboy Fashion is not dead!  I simply haven’t had the time for it lately like I used to although I think that is about to change.  Anyway, when I saw this great Diablo III Demon Hunter cosplay, I knew I had to share it with you!  In the past, I have posted a couple of great Demon Hunter cosplays (like this one and this one), but the cosplay below is my favorite so far.  Not only does the cosplay look great, but I am really loving the photography too!

I spotted this fantastic Diablo III female Demon Hunter cosplay on the official Diablo III Facebook page yesterday.  The cosplayer in these pictures is FreiaRaven and the photographer that took these beautiful shots is Photographer Eva.  I’m impressed with how great these photos are!  I especially appreciate the great lighting and church setting.

There are times I get a bit jealous of all of the awesome geeky clothes that are made for women and this would definitely be one of them.  I have some pretty cool Legend of Zelda t-shirts but they can’t compare to this amazing Legend of Zelda cosplay dress!

Etsy seller Frockasaurus is selling this incredible custom hand-made Legend of Zelda cosplay dress for $513.35.  These dresses are made to order so you can request whatever size you need.  As for details about the dress, here is what they said:

This particular costume is made from 100% cotton, trimmed with crushed gold lamé and gold leatherette. Fully lined in polyester cotton, with 3 layers of net underskirting. Boned bodice, back zip fastening with corset effect lacing over the top. Top stitched in gold thread.

If you are a Legend of Zelda fan who happens to be looking for something to where to a con or even perhaps a renaissance fair but don’t want to deal with the hassle of making your own outfit, this might be just what you have been looking for!  Heck, this would even make for a nice non-traditional wedding dress for a really big Zelda fan.

If you happen to order one of these dresses, send us pictures of you wearing it!  I love to see my readers enjoying the things I post about!

Once in a great while, I get the urge to play a little Diablo III and I recently had one of those urges hit me so a couple of weeks ago I finished yet another play through of Diablo III.  It seems to get easier every time I play it but it is still a lot of fun and a good story.  Well, speaking of Diablo III, I would say that judging by this amazing Demon Hunter cosplay, I am not the only one who still enjoys the game.

This stunning Diablo inspired female Demon Hunter cosplay pictured below was created by Tessa Kristine Cosplay.  Perhaps the most amazing thing is that this is only her second cosplay!  With as good as this looks, I would think that she is a veteran of the cosplay world.

Speaking of Demon Hunter cosplay, if you like this, you should check out the previous female Demon Hunter cosplay I posted about.  And if that still isn’t enough for you, do a search for Diablo cosplay on the right to see all of the amazing Diablo cosplay I have posted about in the past.

At this point, I think you are all pretty familiar with my dislike of wearing things like rings because I feel they get in the way and are too restrictive, not to mention my fear of never being able to get them off once I get them on.  However, I still enjoy looking at and posting about really cool rings that I happen to come across while I am browsing my favorite websites.  Speaking of cool rings, I think I have found one that any fan of the Nintendo NES console will love!  And yes, I know saying Nintendo NES is redundant but I feel like it is the style I want to write in for once so deal with it! 😛

Etsy seller mooredesign13 is selling these handmade NES controller rings for just $200!  The rings feature the NES controller on a brick pattern with rubies as the A and B buttons.  The ring itself is made of sterling silver.

If you decide to order one of these, be warned that the smallest they can make is a size 9 because otherwise the A and B buttons are too small to set the ruby stones in.

Rings like this make me really wish I liked wearing rings because I would love to wear an NES controller around my finger.

Depending on how long you have been a reader here at Fanboy Fashion or my other site, Global Geek News, you may or may not know that I never leave the house without a hat and I grew up playing the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Well, somebody has finally combined those two things and created a baseball cap style hat with an NES controller embroidered on it!  I might not need a new hat since I just got a new God of War hat that I just started wearing but I think my next has is likely to be this cool NES Controller hat, something I would recommend for anybody else out there that also spent much of their lives with the NES!

The incredibly nerdy people over at SuperHeroStuff are selling this sweet grey Nintendo Entertainment System controller hat for just $21.99!  The hat is a snapback hat so you can adjust it to fit your head which in my experience is a lot better than those hats with elastic (like my God of War cap of which I am on my third one because I love the design so much), which take no time to wear out and suddenly even the lightest gust of wind can steal the cap from your head like the playground bully you hated in school.

It has been many years since I have played Duck Hunt on the NES but I still have nightmares of that stupid dog mocking me whenever I missed the ducks.  However, I think that dog would be a lot harder to hate if that dog was Snoopy and the bird I am hunting is Woodstock although why would I ever want to hunt Woodstock?!  Well, if you like the idea of mixing the NES classic Duck Hunt with the classic cartoon Peanuts, then I think I have found a great mashup t-shirt for you!

The great folks over at BustedTees are selling this Snoop Hunt t-shirt for just $20!  If you loved both Duck Hunt and Snoopy growing up like I did (and still do), then this is the shirt for you!

I have a feeling that if you get this shirt, you will get a lot of compliments from both Duck Hunt and Snoopy fans.  I know whenever I wear one of my mashup t-shirts out that combines things like Star Wars with Donkey Kong or the Super Mario Bros with Doctor Who, I constantly have people giving me compliments on the cool shirts.  If you like getting compliments from people, a shirt like this will definitely get them!

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!

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!
