Backing is now closed for Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park

[Editor's note: This story ran in our community blogs a week ago. Backing is now closed, so I've made tiny adjustments to the headline and calls to action for fundraising. As backing the project isn't necessarily a pre-order I thought I'd p...   read


NSFWish: I cannot handle the rollercoaster that is this cosplay twitter account

It's been a little while since we've had some cosplay on the home page, and we usually run that sort of thing on the weekend.  In an inexperienced attempted to fix this my journey went horribly awry. Somewhere down the rabbit hole of s...   read

This Nova is another great cosplay that looks like an in-game shot

Calypsen Cosplay, a cosplay artist from Poland, has one killer ensemble here with her Starcraft Nova outfit. It looks damn near perfect, from the details on her armor even down to the hair. What's old is new again, as Nova has been thr...   read

Cubone and Umbreon dazzle in Sex Expo's first cosplay contest

You know what they say about sex: gotta have it. And Sydney has it in droves as the host-city for sex expo Sexpo. Incidentally that's also what we're calling E3 this year as Destructoid fits me, Brett, Jordan, Kyle, and Zack horizontally ov...   read

Make yourself a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy on the cheap

This Witcher 3 Yennefer cosplay makes me want to play it again

Maria “Hannuki” Hanna really knows her cosplay, and this photo shoot of The Witcher 3's Yennefer is no exception. My favorite part is probably the set design -- it makes me feel like the Witcher academy actually exists. Now I ju...   read

Hot damn this Tracer cosplay is on point

Here's is the best cosplay I've seen since that Lightning get up that looked like it could be in-game, or at least a high-res action figure photo shoot. And since it's not Lightning, the model has the added challenge of actually needing to ...   read

No, it's not in-game, this is Lightning cosplay

Let's get the potshot out of the way. Wow, this Lightning cosplay looks so much like a CG model -- perfectly captures Lightning's lack of emotion! Of course, we know that there's a lot of depth behind Claire "Lightning" Farron. A a warm per...   read

Turns out Resident Evil's Jill Valentine makes a good Jill Valentine

Actress Julia Voth's likeness was used for Jill Valentine's character model in the 2002 Resident Evil GameCube remake, so it makes a lot of sense that Voth would decide to do a Jill Valentine cosplay photo shoot (random disclosure: turns ou...   read

I thought this Fallout 4 cosplay was an in-game shot for a second

Whenever a massive AAA game is out, it garners hundreds of thousands of fans, and rallies them to a general cause. Because of this, so many artistic creations are born, including this amazing Nick Valentine cosplay from Fallout 4. I had to ...   read

This Mortal Kombat X cosplay is pretty insane

I don't do cosplay updates often, but when I do, it's because I'm pretty jazzed about the amount of effort that went into it. That's the case for this Kotal Khan (Mortal Kombat X) cosplay by Yeliz, with photography done by SLDixon. In terms...   read

The best TGS swag I got was this creepy old man brochure (gallery)

There's so much kawaii shit at TGS (and in Japan in general) that it sort of cancels itself out of the attention span. To reach the most jaded people you have to go further ... fatherly, even. To be honest, I have no idea what's going on wi...   read
