When you think about it, the Cybermen are already kind of halfway to being steampunk, they just lack the coloring, gears, gauges and other typical steampunk things. Well, one cosplayer decided to take his Cyberman cosplay the rest of the way toward steampunk and he came up with this absolutely amazing looking steampunk Cyberman cosplay.
Unfortunately, I don’t know who this handsome gentleman is that is sporting this incredible steampunk Cyberman cosplay (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give him credit for his amazing costume), but he was spotted recently at DragonCon in Atlanta by Jen of Epbot who took this picture.
I’ve seen a lot of steampunk style cosplay in the past but I think this is my favorite. If my memory is correct, it is definitely the most detailed. I wish I had the costume making skills this guy does because I would love to sport something similar at my local sci-fi conventions. I am really curious to know just how long it took him to make something that looks this good?
There are times I wish I was one of those really clever geeks who are able to see obscure similarities between things and tie them together in a really interesting way. I’d say that thanks to my time on Reddit, my skills in that area have improved a bit but they still aren’t sharp enough to come up with something as clever as the shirt below combining the Cybermen from Doctor Who and their love of the word “DELETE” with the ol’ three-finger salute for fixing computer problems.
It is very unfortunate that guys don’t have much choice when it comes to sock designs. For the most part, we have just solid color socks and some of them might even have a logo or gold toe on them but that is about it. I find it somewhat annoying considering women seem to get all of the cool socks like these awesome Doctor Who low cut ladies socks. I want a version for guys!
For the Doctor Who loving ladies out there, you will be pleased to know that ThinkGeek is selling this 3-pack of Doctor Who low cut ladies socks for just $14.99. For that very reasonable price, you get a pair of Dalek socks, TARDIS socks and Cyberman socks. If you are a woman who considers herself a Whovian, you definitely need these socks!
Although I’m not sure I would care to wear pink socks, I would still love to have a pair of Cyberman socks like these! Lucky women…
