X-Wing Tracer and McCree Solo

\n

Cosplayers: Unknown

\n

This is an epic mashup of two amazing video games. Tracer dons an X-wing suit as she prepares for combat while McCree takes on the duds of Han Solo, the roguish outlaw turned roguish cowboy. Tracer's normal attire lends itself to being an X-wing pilot; with goggles and twin pistols, she is ready to fight.

Wobbu-Fett

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown 

\n

This is the single greatest crossover cosplay of Boba Fett ever. Wobbuffet's name lends itself to combining with Boba Fett. Painted blue armor accented with Team Rocket's red R and a Pokeball helps sell thePokemonn aspect of the cosplay. His helmet has Wobbuffets face painted helmet, making this Pokemon bounty hunter a perfect mashup.

Stormtrooper America

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

When the forces of good and evil meet, you end up with Stormtrooper America. Wearing red, white, and blue, the armor perfectly matches Captain America's iconic outfit. The weathering on the shield really makes this seem like he has been through many battles. Good thing he has his shield to knock people out --instead of shooting with the cursed stormtrooper E-11 blaster.

Tinkerbell Fett

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

Ah yes, another version of the Disney Boba Fett mashup. This time we have Tinkerbell Fett, a mix of the delightful pixie from Peter Pan and the legendary bounty hunter. Wearing a green dress, wings, and an accented Boba Fett helmet, this is an adorable take on Boba Fett.

Imperial Muppets

\n

Cosplayers: Unknown

\n

Who would have known the muppets could look so badass? These cosplayers did when they decided to combine imperial officers and stormtroopers with the loveable puppets. Muppets wielding blasters can't have worse aim than normal stormtroopers, can they? What a creative idea that not many others would have thought of or executed on such a high level.

Justice Jedis

\n

Cosplayers: Unknown

\n

There's no doubt that superheroes are on the rise in mainstream media, thanks to Marvel's growing cinematic universe and DC's growing catalog of superhero franchises. On top of that, TV shows and video games have taken the genre to a new high point fan culture. This group of cosplayers combined their love for DC superheroes with Force-wielding Jedi to form one of the deadliest crime fighting groups around.

\n

Ever since Disney acquired the rights to Star Wars, cosplays combining various Disney characters with Star Wars characters have skyrocketed. One of the most popular mixes comes for Boba Fett (of course), everyone's favorite bounty hunter. Here, Anna, Elsa, and Hans strut their stuff in modified and Disney-fied Boba Fett armor.

Cookie Vader

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

Cookie Monster is kind of dastardly in his own right, but mixing him with Darth Vader is an unexpected combination that makes for an amazingly "evil" cosplay. The furry blue cookie-loving character from Sesame Street dons Darth Vader's attire and trades kills for cookies. Cruising around the convention, this cosplay is surprisingly intimidating. Cookies are obviously the best motivation, even for masters of the dark side of the Force.

Darth Skellington

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

Jack Skellington from A Nightmare Before Christmas has a cult following of his own. So mixing him with Darth Vader is such a genius idea. Taking Vader's armor and pasting it in pin strips, along with Jack's bowtie, gives the Dark Lord of the Sith a smashing Pumpkin King makeover. Armed with his red lightsaber and accompanied with Zero the dog, this is a magnificent crossover combination.

Star Wars is an epic franchise that has spanned multiple decades and multiple formats. Soundtracks, movies, clothes, video games, and more have come from the Star Wars universe. With such fan devotion comes the inevitable melding of franchises. From other movies to video games and comics, fan creativity knows no bounds. 

\n

But it's not just media that has seen crossovers from a galaxy far, far away. Many of the series' most devoted fans are also avid cosplayers, showing their love for the franchise by dressing up as many of SW's most iconic characters. And man, are there some great ones that mesh franchises, too. The following are some of the best Star Wars crossover cosplays.

Stormtrooper 

\n

Cosplayers: Unknown

\n

What would a Star Wars Celebration be without some stormtoopers marching about? It wouldn't be one, that's what.

Here, a stormtrooper, clad in his all-white armor, stands over an Ewok clinging to his leg, Return of the Jedi-style. With a questioning gesture, he is either unsure what the creature is actually trying to accomplish.

Jawa and BB-8

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

This Jawa went the traditional route. Covered from head to toe by a brown robe, its yellow eyes glow amongst the blackness of its hooded face. This Jawa has bundled up a battered BB-8, most likely looking to make a nice sale of the droid.

Grand Admiral Thrawn

\n

Cosplayer: Rattle and Burn

\n

Thrawn started off as a Grand Admiral in the Imperial Navy before the Galactic Civil War. With knowledge of the uncharted regions of the galaxy, he was an asset to Emperor Palpatine. Here, Rattle and Burn is covered in blue body paint and decked out in a white Imperial Navy uniform. Amazing that no paint smeared onto the white.

Han Solo

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

Han Solo is one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars franchise. A smuggler who falls in love with Princess Leia, he has remained a fan favorite for the last 40 years.

Here, Han gets a little genderbend, though the cosplayer stays as close to his original costume as possible. Short hair, white shirt, black vest, and a blaster, she has all the main Solo points down.

\n

Cosplayers: Uncanny MeganDallas Nagata White

\n

Uncanny Megan and Dallas Nagata White take a creative approach to their Jawa cosplay. Going a sexier route, they cut off the midriff and wear short skirts. Brown boots, socks, and the typical hooded top finish off the look. Glowing eyes stare from the depths of their hoods as they wait for their next target.

Darth Vader Unmasked

\n
Cosplayer: Unknown
\n

Darth Vader is obviously a very popular cosplay. The Dark Lord of the Sith, a villain with his own theme music, and a loud mouth breather, Darth Vader is a mainstay within the Star Wars franchise. It is a rarity, however, to see him without his helmet when cosplayed. Here he is, though, suit fully detailed, helmet in hand, and scarred face exposed to the sunlight. The work on this cosplay is incredible, especially the scarring on his face.

At first, I had to take a second look at this cosplay trio. The cartoonish aspect of their costumes is spot on, making me do a double take to make sure they were real people. The crafting, detail, and paint on the masks are amazing. The cartoonish feel of the attire matches the masks and really brings Star Wars Rebels to life.

Dengar

\n

Cosplayer: Unknown

\n

Dengar is another deadly bounty hunter that roams the galaxy. Hired by Darth Vader to track down Han Solo as a trap for Luke Skywalker, Dengar ended up losing the hunt to Boba Fett.

This cosplay has the weathered look of Dengar down. From the head wrap to the weathering and rust spots on the armor, there was some attention to detail that went into this costume.

Kylo Ren and Rey

\n

Cosplayers: Unknown

\n

Kylo Ren and Rey were the stars of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A new generation of lightsaber-wielding characters for a new generation of viewers, this pair captured the hearts of fans around the world: Kylo Ren, the grandson of Darth Vader, trying so desperately to follow in his footsteps. Rey, a strong female who can use the Force. 

\n

These two cosplay their chosen character magnificently. Kylo Ren is masked, with the small details in the mask and cloak really showing the dedication to recreating the character. Wielding his tri-saber, he is intimidating. Next to him stands Rey in her white outfit, wielding the legendary Skywalker lightsaber and her staff. The small details, such as her pristine hair and belt, really help the cosplay come to life.

Boba Fett

\n

Cosplayer: Widen15

\n

Boba Fett is one of the most notorious deadly bounty hunters in a galaxy far, far way, who, under the charge of Jabba the Hutt, is tasked with hunting down Han Solo. Here, Widen15 nails Boba's original look. From the blaster bolt on the helmet (which he received from another infamous bounty hunter) and vambraces to the intricate construction of the props, Widen15's Boba cosplay is astounding.

Master Luke Skywalker

\n

Cosplayer: Oldmasterluke  

\n

Oldmasterluke takes on the latest version of Luke Skywalker, who has been in exile on Achto for some time. Going for gray hair and a missing hand, this cosplay is phenomenal. He looks like he just came out of The Force AwakensThe attention to detail on the robotic hand is simply astounding. The small details, such as gray hairs in his eyebrows, really help sell the old Luke Skywalker look.

Star Wars is the epitome of a cult classic. What started as a single trilogy in 1977 has grown into a multi-million dollar franchise with merchandise ranging from video games to books, movies to home decor, apparel, and more. Each year fans gather to celebrate the Star Wars Universe with official Star Wars Celebrations. Here are some of the best Star Wars cosplays, with many of them coming from the recent Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.

Star Fox team takes on The Galactic Empire in this fan-made short https://www.gameskinny.com/4oucs/star-fox-team-takes-on-the-galactic-empire-in-this-fan-made-short https://www.gameskinny.com/4oucs/star-fox-team-takes-on-the-galactic-empire-in-this-fan-made-short Mon, 11 Apr 2016 11:14:17 -0400 David Fisher

While some fan-made content is high quality, and some of it not so much, there is some that's just plain fun. Why? Because it's been pulled straight out of our childhood imagination. In this fan-made video, "Star Fox vs Star Wars Invasion: Battle for Earth" by King Bob Videos, has taken two of the most well-known space series and blended them together for one epic battle.

The video starts out simple enough, with Earth military forces trying -- and failing -- to stop the Galactic Empire from taking over our world. All hope seems lost until we hear the familiar "Good luck!" and Mission Start screen from the Star Fox series. The result is a beautiful cinematic battle between Fox's team and the Imperials.

While the video does lend itself more to Star Fox lore than Star Wars, it is still an entertaining watch that will bring a smile to the faces of fans for either series. You can check out the video for yourself at the top of this article, or follow this link to watch it on YouTube.

Star Wars Battlefront gets special edition PS4 and controller https://www.gameskinny.com/9ctpl/star-wars-battlefront-gets-special-edition-ps4-and-controller https://www.gameskinny.com/9ctpl/star-wars-battlefront-gets-special-edition-ps4-and-controller Mon, 17 Aug 2015 05:32:08 -0400 Callum Wiggins

With Star Wars Battlefront arriving on consoles at the end of the year, a special edition PS4 bundle has been designed to commemorate the rebooted franchise. It joins a growing list of specially themed PS4s such as the silver Arkham City effort and the shiny red Metal Gear Solid 5.

However, when it comes to creativity, this latest offering smacks as slightly lazy and confusing. The 1TB PS4 itself is etched with Darth Vader's face across it, which is arguably the most unoriginal concept the designers could have gone with. Of course, it is clearly linked to the Star Wars franchise, but it feels like it scrapes the bottom of the barrel in terms of ideas. I imagine if they were to do a special Xbox One edition the design would be a green Yoda design.

Along with this gaunt attempt at a special edition design is a dualshock controller is high gloss model with blue, red and white buttons dispersed to match the buttons on Darth Vader's suit. It does match them well, but it looks bizarre as a standalone controller, with the colors mixed up in a confusing theme.

However, outside of the polarizing design are some features that would attract the ardent Star Wars fan to this unique console. It includes four retro Star Wars games that have been remastered and now have trophies to unlock. These are Super Star Wars (SNES, 1992), Star Wars: Racer Revenge (PS2, 2002), Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter (PS2, 2002) and Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (PS2, 2002).

While the previous two are alien to me, I remember sinking many hours into both Jedi Starfighter and Bounty Hunter years ago, with both games having interesting mechanics and stories. Both were well-received by critics, and they make this bundle especially tempting for devotees of the Star Wars universe.

When the game is released on November 17th, both Star Wars Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0 will get Force-related bundles. The former will include a copy of the game, the special edition PS4, and the four retro games. Furthermore, the console will also be available for purchase on its own, with the four retro games in tow. Prices have yet to be revealed.

Will this awaken the Force in your wallet later in the year? Leave a comment below.

I hope you have enjoyed these wonderful photo ideas, I certainly have. Makes me want another baby just to take photos of or use my photography skills to concentrate on newborns. Lord knows I have quite the collection of gamer and nerd-geek memorabilia to assemble a set.

\n

Keep in mind when it comes to Newborn Photography, since it's a specialized field, check if the photographer you choose is a International Association of Newborn Photographer. This will help protect you and your bundle of joy.

"Harry Potter" has never looked so cute representing House Gryffindor. Perhaps Ron or Hermoine should wake him so he doesn't sleep too long in that suitcase. The train ride from London must have been a long one.

For any new parent, one of the most exciting times is having baby's first photos taken. Instead of walking into a Sears or JC Penny for the standard photo session, some parents are opting for something truly unique.

\n

Newborn photographers can now incorporate practically any type of fandom a parent may adore to make their little one's photo truly stand out. I have gathered some of the cutest photographs out there, along with links to the photographers, to get your creative juices flowing for your baby's next photo.

\n

Here you see an adorable "Spider-man" just hanging out on "the side of a building" for a quick photo opportunity for his fans. Spider-man really cares.

Modder Brings Darth Vader to DOTA 2 https://www.gameskinny.com/f1ke2/modder-brings-darth-vader-to-dota-2 https://www.gameskinny.com/f1ke2/modder-brings-darth-vader-to-dota-2 Sat, 16 May 2015 17:30:01 -0400 Elijah Beahm

Mods are wonderful things aren't they? The latest user generated content from a galaxy near you is none other than Darth Vader for DOTA 2, with a little R2-D2 minion to add some cute to Vader's darkside-infused rampage. (And to think that just the other day I was writing about awesome Star Wars mods while this one nearly slipped right under my radar!)

The mod was put together by Russian gamer RustardGaming, and as you can see above, he's transformed Juggernaut into Darth Vader. The transformation is far from complete, as currently Juggernaut only wears Vader's helmet and wields his lightsaber. But even at this stage, the mod is surprisingly enticing. While it is unlikely to become an official skin for obvious licensing reasons, it is still a neat little reskin.

This isn't the first mod by RustardGaming either. He's also modded in a few other items like candy weapons. To see his latest mod in action though, all you need to do is hit play on that video above!
