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!

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.

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!

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.

Even though the game has been a big deal for around a decade now, I have still managed to avoid playing World of Warcraft.  Having watched people play the game, I would consider playing it if it wasn’t for two things.  First, I’ve seen what WoW addiction can do to people (one of my former roommates was a WoW addict) and second is that I refuse to pay a subscription fee for a game.  No matter how much I want to play a game *cough* Elder Scrolls Online *cough*, I will NEVER pay a subscription fee to play a game.

Anyway, even if I have never played the game, I can still appreciate the great cosplay!

In the past, I have featured some incredible World of Warcraft cosplay including some impressive Sally Whitemane cosplay and some amazing Blood Elf cosplay among others.  To see all of the great WoW cosplay posts I have made, just search for World of Warcraft cosplay in the search box on the right.  As for today’s post…

This amazing WoW Alexstrasza cosplay was made by Oshley Cosplay (Ashley).  The costume took her 4 months to make but what is really impressive is that this Alexstrasza the Lifebinder is her first attempt at cosplay!  For a first attempt, I’d say she did one heck of a fantastic job!

If there is one rule that I live my life by, it is to wear things that show off the things I love.  Whether it is a Doctor Who t-shirt, my God of War hat or my Call of Duty dog tags, you will never see me not sporting something I am passionate about (unless you see me in the shower in which case we have other issues to discuss).  I also recommend everybody else live by this rule as much as possible.  Not only does it let people get an idea of who you really are, but it is a fantastic way to start up conversations with complete strangers about the whatever it is you love that you both have in common.

Well, speaking of wearing things you love, if you are a Legend of Zelda fan, I have found the perfect necklace for you!

Etsy seller lizglizz is selling these custom Legend of Zelda Ocarina song necklaces for just $26!  Which song is it that you get you ask?  Any one you want!  The one in the picture is the Song of Time but if there is another one you like better, you can go with it!

If you like wearing necklaces and have a love for the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, than I think this is a must have for you!

Perhaps sometime in the next week, I will start catching up on Legend of Zelda games.  I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I am I am several games behind on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii and that is something I really need to rectify.  However, until my schedule allows me time to do that, I will just appreciate some awesome Legend of Zelda cosplay like the fantastic Skyward Sword inspired Princess Zelda cosplay below!

Cosplayer Kawaii Ringo spent a month working on this awesome Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword inspired Princess Zelda cosplay.  I’d say the time was well spent as her attention to detail is quite good!  I am definitely impressed!  I would definitely be interested in knowing if that harp can actually be played?

The photography was done by LJ Decker Photography.

I really wish people dressed like this normally and not just as cosplay because it looks great and the stuff people wear as normal clothing just seems boring in comparison.

Over the years, I have seen cosplay for video games ranging from Super Mario Bros to Diablo III but in all of this time, I can’t recall having ever come across any Sonic the Hedgehog cosplay.  Of course I may have and I have just forgot about it because my memory sucks (after nearly 3000 posts on my Global Geek News site, 400 here and countless others on other sites over the past 12 years that I have written, I can’t remember everything I have posted anymore).  So, when I came across this sexy Sonic the Hedgehog cosplay, I knew I had to share it because I’m sure I’m not the only one seeing some Sonic cosplay for the first time.

This awesome and sexy Sonic the Hedgehog cosplay is being sported by cosplayer Manzinat0r and it was photographed by Greg De Stefano.

As if the cosplay wasn’t enough, the orange and brown squares, grass and rings make these pictures full of Sonic awesomeness.  This is definitely a fantastic tribute to one of my favorite video games growing up!

I would also like to go on record in saying that there is nothing hotter than a woman with blue hair because we really need more women to sport blue hair.  I put it right up there with women with pointy Vulcan/elf type ears (don’t judge me).  Anyway…
