[ART] [Black Panther/Peanuts] Franklin is from Wakanda by cheard1179 (Franklin)
This fan-art of Franklin from the Peanuts strip wearing a Black Panther costume will melt even the hardest heart. (PS. Thanks to [twitter.com profile] WeAreWakanda for highlighting so many great pieces of Black Panther fanart, including this one.)

[ART] [Black Panther] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] reapersun (Eric, Shuri, T'challa)
A really cute AU image in a world where Eric gets to grow up in Wakanda and everyone is happy!

[ART] [Black Panther] Untitled by [twitter.com profile] Elentori (Okeye)
A really striking image of Okeye in a costume which mixes that gown with her Dora Milaje costume. I love the glowing spear of justice,the vivid swirling effect, and the strong colours in this image.

[ART] [Black Panther] Killmonger by [twitter.com profile] Andernell (Eric Killmonger)
I died, and this image of Eric Killmonger, encircled by a snarling leopard, while holding the mask he takes from the museum is what did for me. Great colour palette which emphasises a serious mood. Also, his hair is fantastic in this piece.

[COSPLAY] [Black Panther/Wonder Woman] Black Panther/Wonder Woman cosplay by [twitter.com profile] KrystinaArielle
One of my fav cosplayers [twitter.com profile] KrystinaArielle added some Black Panther details to her Wonder Woman costume and took a shot doing the 'Wakanda Forever' salute, and it's the best!

[COSPLAY] [Star Wars] Lando and Han cosplay by [twitter.com profile] KrystinaArielle and van_kelsing (Lando Calrissian, Han Solo
Speaking of [twitter.com profile] KrystinaArielle, here she is doing a really fun genderbent cosplay of Lando and Han with van_kelsing.

[ART] [Batgirl] Janelle Monae as Batgirl by [twitter.com profile] RachelAtWork (Batgirl)
This image is so sweet. I really like the way her mask is popped up on top of her head, almost like flight goggles in WWI photos. And I'm intrigued to know why she's wrapping or unwrapping her hand.

[ART] [Janelle Monae] Untitled by [twitter.com profile] kohquette (Janelle Monae)
Irene Koh, current Legend of Korra illustrator, recently drew Janelle Monae looking dapper, and you need to see that. I love everything about the outfit, the colour palette is so rich, and the way she's adjusting her tie while staring straight at the viewer is fab.


[COSPLAY] [X-Men] Rule 63 Cable and Hope by Jay Eddidon (Cable, Hope Summers)
Jay, best known one of the hosts of the podcast Jay & Miles X-plain the X-Men, cosplayed at Emerald City Comic Con with his mom as a gender-bent Cable and Hope. Even though I'm not super familiar with the characters, I'm always here for older women doing cosplay, and Jay's mom pulls off Cable brilliantly.

[ART] [Black Panther] Brother and sister by [twitter.com profile] yeeeebis (T'Challa, Shuri)
Simple yet adorable art of a true sibling moment. Featuring fist cats!

[ART] [Black Panther, Thor, Wonder Woman] Okoye, Valkyrie, Antiope / Leaders of All-female Warriors by [tumblr.com profile] mohtz (Okoye, Valkyrie, Antiope)
I love the juxtaposition of these three women, the power in their poses, how they are contrasted yet similar. Here comes the general.


[VID] [Yuri On Ice] Go The Distance by [youtube.com profile] ifshehadwings (3:48) (Yuri/Victor)
Someone made a vid focusing on Yuri practicing and gaining confidence throughout the series and set it to Go The Distance from the Disney Hercules movie, what a good choice.

[FIC] [X-Men] Bad Teacher by [archiveofourown.org profile] tardisistheonlywaytotravel (2920 words) (Jean Grey, Erik Lensherr, Charles Xavier, Scott Summers, Ororo Munroe, Jason Stryker, Alex Summers, Sean Cassidy)
I legitimately can't read this fic in public because it makes me laugh too much. Like, this feels like a more mellowed out version of the Erik we meet in X-Men: First Class! Still a bad man, but dialled back; he is still the guy who thinks pushing someone off a satellite dish is an acceptable training method, but no one is going to die! And Jean feels convincingly young and in character, and I 100% approve of Scott Summers being pushed into prickle bushes. ♥

[ART] [Under the Pendulum Sky] Under the Pendulum Sun book nails by [twitter.com profile] jeannette_ng
Nail art always amazes me, so Jeannette Ng doing nail art of the cover of her book is really cool!

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
