A Gallery of the Most Accurate Female Video Game Costumes | Alright, I’ve seen so many amazing examples of cosplay over the last year or two, I decided to put some of them into one master post. But as I don’t want an endlessly long gallery, I tried to restrict it with a few basic criteria: video game related and female. Any complaints? As you’ll see in my title, this is not the “Hottest Video Game Cosplayers” as has been done (probably by us), but the “Most Accurate.” Some of these we’ve featured here before with their own galleries, some are new finds I hadn’t see until today. Gallery begins below: Alice (American McGee’s Alice) Bayonetta (Bayonetta) Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) Cammy (Street Fighter) Chell (Portal) Ivy (Soul Calibur) Jill Valentine (Resident Evil) Kitana (Mortal Kombat) Mai (King of Fighters) Jack (Mass Effect) Miranda (Mass Effect) Faith (Mirror’s Edge) Morrigan (Darkstalkers) Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros.) Raiden (Metal Gear Solid) Rikku (Final Fantasy X) Rosalina (Super Mario Galaxy) Samus Aran (Metroid) Tali (Mass Effect)

Conserving Africa's Wildlife Through Photography How often do we see exquisite imagery of animals that isn't a "When Animals Attack" special? Photographer Nick Brandt says, "The emphasis has generally been on capturing the drama of wild animals IN ACTION, on capturing that dramatic single moment, as opposed to simply animals in the state of being." I agree with Brandt and appreciate his stunning contributions to wildlife photography. The native Londoner first discovered the beauty of Africa's majestic creatures sprawled out on the breathtakingly unaltered landscapes in 1995, when he was still making music videos, practicing his formal training in film. It isn't all gut-wrenching photography, though. Nick Brandt's website Post-Apocalyptic Images of Japan The ruins and haikyo aficionado in me couldn’t resist making a post about Tokyo Genso‘s fabulous art depicting post-apocalyptic Japan. The illustrations have a breathtaking otherworldly quality that perfectly capture the sort of scenes I regularly come across while exploring ruins, albeit of course, on a much grander and majestic scale. Some of the scenes really aren’t stretching the truth that much either. Head into the backstreets of Japan and you’ll quickly find dilapidated old buildings and creeping plants reclaiming man-made structures for mother nature. Apply that to the iconic landmarks of central Tokyo and other areas of Japan, and you have some gorgeous concept art for what Tokyo could look like if man were wiped from the planet. Anyway, enough talk.
