Cosplay Fun at Planet Comicon 2015!

IBOT

I spent the past weekend at Planet Comicon in Kansas City, and even though I spent the weekend working my booth (The Costume Wrangler’s Closet), I did get to see some pretty awesome cosplay.  Above are some of the amazing folks from the Iron Brothers of Topeka (IBOTS).

RainbowDalek

This little Rainbow Dalek exterminates with cuteness according to her mom!

Sharknado

I had to run this boy down to get his picture for a friend who’s obsessed with Sharknado.  I particularly love the faux gore on all the sharks.  How creative is this kid?!

Groot

I snuck a snapshot of this cosplayed in a seriously cool Groot costume.

R2-Q5

Technically this isn’t cosplay, but the Kansas City R2 Builders Club have got some pretty amazing R2s, like this R2-Q5, an evil R2 whose allegiance belonged to the Empire!

She-Ra

This chainmaille She-Ra was a volunteer from Amanda Lynn Chainmaille Creations.

Show Your Geeky Leather Cuff

Mardigan Enterprises on Etsy caught my eye with their Arc Reactor Leather cuff as I was browsing.  They have a lot of great designs. And also leather wrapped flasks if that is more your speed. The cuff that caught my attention, Iron Man pictured below.

There are other cuffs, that can catch a geek’s eyes, Tardis,  or perhaps, you need a cuff burdened with glorious purpose.

Gift A Geek: Tea! Just What The Doctor Ordered

serenity-teapot_secondchanceceramics

Tea! That’s all I needed. A good cup of tea. A superheated infusion of free radicals and tannin. Just the thing for heating the synapses.

15eb_doctor_who_tardis_tea_infuserDid you think I had a different Doctor in mind? I mean there are 12 to choose from.

The Tardis Tea Infuser is available at Think Geek  But to get to the actual Tea. We have so many choices. Like tea itself wasn’t geeky enough there are fandom blends to make you happy.

Fandom Blend Tea Sets from Adagio Tea  Firefly, Teen Wolf, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who…pick a sampler blend for $19. If there’s a fandom or three you want to try/gift.

Tea and Absinthe   Doctor Who teas and Tea, Earl Grey Hot.  They also have a few tea accessories.

Tea and Other Things – Butterbeer and Chocolate Frog flavored tea need I say more?

And of course you will need something to make this tea in:

I feel like there is a degree of Serenity placing those words on a teapot.

And One would be remiss to not provide something to drink the tea from. I pity the fool without a tea mug.

Build the geekest tea set you can, and go off and spread tea among the masses.  All of the shops linked above, have a few other choices for mug, for pot, for infuser, and of course for Tea.
