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!

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.

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.

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.

There seem to be a lot of fans of the Thief games out there but I can’t say that I am one of them.  I have never tried the games or even payed much attention to them.  However, after seeing last week’s review of the latest Thief game by Zero Punctuation, I may go check out the older Thief games and likely skip the latest one.  The old games are only $7 on Steam which is quite reasonable although I will probably still wait for a sale because I’m cheap and have a bunch of other games I need to play anyway.  On an unrelated note, I finished Assassin’s Creed: Liberation on the Vita last night and it is great.  I’d say it is definitely a must play for Vita owners.  And now back to Thief…

This stunning female Thief cosplay was created by Lyz Brickley Cosplay and photographed by Darshelle Stevens.  While I am not terribly familiar with the games, I’d say this is still some amazing cosplay!  She definitely looks like she means business!

I always enjoy seeing people take their cosplay in a slightly different direction than just the typical recreation.  While I do enjoy seeing people go to incredible lengths to recreate a character down to the finest detail, its nice to see them do something a little more original every once in a while like this sweet warrior Princess Peach cosplay.

This badass warrior Princess Peach cosplay was done by cosplayer Alexia Jean Grey who looks like she is definitely ready to go into battle.  With the exception of the corset which was made by Castle Corsetry, she apparently made the rest of the costume herself and I’d say she did a heck of a job!  I’m really curious to know just how long it took her to make this costume because there is quite a bit of detail to it with all of the jewels, mushrooms and such.

While I am impressed with the whole costume, I especially like the warp pipes on the sword as that seems really clever.  I’d follow her into battle any day!

I’ve spent a fair bit of my free time lately playing Assassin’s Creed: Liberation on the PlayStation Vita and while it feels a bit stripped down simply because it seems to do nothing to really forward the overall Assassin’s Creed story and is just about the gameplay, I am still really enjoying it.  It was definitely worth the $14 or whatever I paid for it on sale on the PlayStation Network store a couple of weeks ago.  If you are an Assassin’s Creed fan and have a Vita, I highly recommend picking it up.

Speaking of Assassin’s Creed, as soon as I finish Liberation, I plan on jumping right into Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and after seeing this amazing Edward Kenway cosplay from the game, I am really excited to play it!

Cosplayer LeonChiroCosplayArt is the man behind this incredible Edward Kenway cosplay and Marcella Fava Nerd Photographer is the person responsible for this beautiful photography.

I wish I had the costume making skills of this guy just because I think I would look like a total badass wearing something like that around town all the time.

I have a rather nice little collection of Game Boys as I had a bit of an obsession with them as a kid (my Tetris addiction probably didn’t help) but if there is one thing I don’t have in my collection and would die to have in my collection, it would be a giant wearable Game Boy that is playable and uses giant Game Boy cartridges.

I’m not sure who this awesome guy is or where he was spotted (if you know, please let me know in the comments below so I can give him the credit he definitely deserves), but a few days ago on reddit I came across these pictures of a guy sporting some epic Game Boy cosplay that is actually playable!

I’m not sure just how many games this guy has for people to play on his huge Game Boy costume, but I at least know there is Tetris, Dr. Mario and Donkey Kong Land judging by the second picture with another guy holding up two of the giant cartridges.

And while you can play this giant Game Boy, I’m not sure how practical it is given the size of the controls, especially for a game like Tetris.  The back-lit screen is also a bit of an authenticity killer but it does make it look better than the picture where the back-lit doesn’t seem to be turned on so I can live with it.  Back-lit or not, this Game Boy costume is epic!  Whoever this guy is, he is my hero!

Ever since I was a kid, I have had a big love for Peter Pan and that fantasy universe.  I remember watching the Disney cartoon over and over again as a kid and these days I will watch the classic Hook movie with Robin Williams whenever I see it on TV.  It seems like love for Neverland has fallen off in recent years because I remember seeing lots of Peter Pan and Hook costumes when I was a kid (I remember even having one of the hook hand toys when I was a kid) and you never see them these days.

Well, it looks like there is at least one other fan still out there judging by this awesome steampunk Tinkerbell cosplay.

Sadly, I don’t know who this awesome Tinkerbell cosplayer is, who took this picture or what con this was at but I think this cosplay is great!  If you know who this girl is or who took the picture, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!

I hope Hook is still on Netflix because now I am in the mood to watch it for the millionth time.
