You wouldn’t think there would be a lot an artist could do to make their mark on Superman’s chest emblem. After all, it’s basically a red S on a yellow background, right? Sure, that’s normally how it looks, but Steve Younis has created an infographic that shows the sometimes minor, sometimes radical 130 changes the S has taken on over Superman’s 75 year history.

Hey, faithful Geeks! Halloween is less than a week away so we’re sure most of you have your costumes ready. We want to see them! The geekier the better! Send your pictures to email@example.com with the subject line “Costumes” and we’ll compile a costume party post for the 31st. We’ll even give away a tee-shirt from our stash to our favorite!
Ghost Rider is probably one of the hardest costumes to pull off, despite it having some easy elements: skull, chains, leather. But shy of tearing all the flesh off one’s face and dousing their head in flammable materials, cosplayers have a hard time getting that final effect perfect. But these guys gave it a shot anyway.
He Geek is a big fan of cosplay. I don’t really do it myself, but I really admire the people that spend days and weeks on costumes creating replicas that I couldn’t begin to imagine how they did it.
But TWILIGHT doesn’t really lend itself to cosplay, does it? Messy hair, denim jackets, six-pack abs. About the only way to tell if someone is cosplaying is if they are at the latest movie premier. I can’t say much though because I’m pretty sure He & She Geek will be doing something similar next Halloween.
(Our thanks to all the sites the pics came from. If you want us to remove yours, please let us know)
So He Geek and She Geek took Buffy the GeekDog to the local PetSmart this weekend for the annual Howl-O-Ween photo op and costume contest. The picture they took sucked royally. We did a family picture and the dude got me and the missus, but cut off half of Buffy’s head in the shot. REALLY???
But the good thing was Buffy (and by extension, She Geek) took home third place in the costume contest for her hastily improvised Hairy Potter costume, cobbled together from a kid’s Gryffindor robe from Goodwill, a straight stick from the yard as a wand, and a whole mess of safety pins. Still She Geek, the new pageant mom, made it work.
Creating a Transformers costume from scratch has got to be one of the toughest bits of cosplay out there. Yet some die hard fans really nail it! Others…well, it’s not for us to judge. You do it.
