Manila-based maker Real Awesome Workz shows off their epic costume replica of The Transformers’ friendly yellow autobot Bumblebee, which he built primarily out of lightweight EVA foam. The weathered paint job by Preslie Saraza and KT Berondo really help to bring it to life. Be sure to stick around to the end for Battle Mode Bee.
THE BEST Cosplay
While attending Otakon 2019, YouTuber Nardio came across Jeremy Chang, who was showing off his truly epic cosplay of one of Warhammer 40,000’s Ultramarines’ armored suits. He used his experience working in a real space suit research lab to help design its rotating arm system. Photo gallery here.

Sneaky Zebra dropped by WonderCon in Anaheim, California to hang out with the many dedicated fans who turned out in their best costumes. The Joker and Mr. Meeseeks both want Lucille, John Wick got his dog back, and that dude from Beetlejuice still has a tiny head.
We’ve seen makeup artist Kay Pike’s amazing body paint creations before, but this golden protocol droid from Star Wars might be her best yet – with those exposed wires in her belly and flat eyes painted on her eyelids. The red arm from The Force Awakens is a nice touch.
Sneaky Zebra dropped by Atlanta’s big sci-fi and fantasy fan convention, and captured video of some of the many fun and fantastic costumes on hand during this year. It was a hard decision, but the four LEGO Ghostbusters minifigs win our vote for best of the show.

Sneaky Zebra presents their latest cosplay compilation, showing off some of the amazing craftsmanship, creativity and dedication of costumed fans who attended this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Nope, we have no idea what the deal is with Ronald McThornald is either.
