    Photographed by Nathan Rupert. The final episode of Futurama airs on Comedy Central tonight. Even though there have been two other “final” episodes, we think this may really be the end. The show’s brought us numerous funny in-jokes and, of course, the cosplay. To send off Futurama in a way not involving a Boys II Men video, we’ve collected some of our favorite Futurama cosplay pictures.

    Corgnelius as Slurms McKenzie. The final episode of Futurama airs on Comedy Central tonight. We’re giving the show a site-wide send-off today, with a collection of the best one-liners and a huge collection of GIFs and funny screencaps. We’ve also collected some of our favorite Futurama cosplay pictures. The first gallery is here, and the final gallery is below.

    No superheroes, princesses, or sexy maids. These old school costumes are pure terror.

    Every Halloween, we go shopping for a new costume, and every Halloween, we get to see some genuinely awful costumes actually sold as real products. And this year is no different! Yeah, it’s not hard to guess the appeal of these costumes, but by the same token, some of these are really just beyond even the fairly low standards we hold costume manufacturers to.

    Halloween is next week, and some people have been spending months carefully crafting the most awesome costume you will ever see. And some of us, like me, are screwed. If you think buying a crappy costume from a store is undignified, and trust the guy who wound up going as DJ Lance Rock because it was the only costume that fit, it is, but don’t want to half-ass it, the good news is you don’t have to.

    The idea of what constitutes a “sexy” Halloween costume continues to get more ridiculous (here’s the worst of this year’s crop), to the point women are now dressing up as cleavage-y slices of pizza. And The Daily Show‘s Senior Women’s Issues Correspondent, Kristen Schaal, is outraged. Not because it’s degrading to women, but because this slow escalation of acceptable raunchiness isn’t getting to the point fast enough.

    Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) — $36 / $29 (Art via Marvel.) Yesterday we featured ten clothing items that can be used as an instant Halloween costumes, which are even easier to put together than our 30 cheap and easy Halloween costumes. Most of those instant Halloween costumes were unisex or masculine, so we’re doing an additional roundup of feminine instant Halloween costumes.

    Royce Hutain of Huntington Beach, California, built a stick figure costume for his 2-year-old daughter Zoey. It’s made simply out of LED cable and Velcro stuck to dark-colored clothing. Description doesn’t do it justice, so here’s a GIF: That is some adorable justice. Hutain, who works in IT, says he doesn’t have time to build and send LED Halloween costumes to the people who requested one, but he does plan to post free instructions online.

    For the record, Stupid Sexy Flanders will forever be the best Ned Flanders Halloween costume ever costume’d. No debate. But if we’re considering a silver, I offer up this Reddit submission from the weekend where one devoted Simpsons fan went full yellow face (not to be confused with the other, ill-advised “face” variation) and in the process sufficiently creeped out everyone at his party by taking IRL a little too far.

    Are you invited to a Halloween party you desperately want to skip? How desperate? Are you “let semi-trained cats steer a Chewbacca robot around the party in your stead” desperate? Bro, you haven’t even begun to understand the true meaning of Halloween till you’ve been “let semi-trained cats steer a Chewbacca robot around the party in your stead” desperate.

    So it’s Halloween. Maybe you haven’t had a chance to get to the costume shop. Maybe you went last night and discovered there are corpses in the desert that have been less picked over. Either way, you’re up the creek, right? Nope, you can still get a costume. And with minimal work, too! Here are five costumes, most of which I’ve jury-rigged myself and which are simple to gender-flip, that are generally clever enough to work.

    Jon Stewart welcomed Sir Patrick Stewart (hot Stewart-on-Stewart action!) to The Daily Show last night to promote his two Broadway plays, but mostly they just talked about his amazing lobster costume. Sir Patrick opened with a poignant line about the Rob Ford and Rand Paul scandals that knocked Jon back (“You just blew my f*cking mind!”).

    It’s that time of year again. We’re going to eat a near-fatal quantity of carbs and feign interest in our cousins’ new job titles while ducking questions about what our own job really entails. (We look at cats and not wear pants. BLOGLIFE.) Let’s put the stress of those forced conversations out of our minds the same way we did last year: by laughing at perturbed pets stuffed into Thanksgiving-themed outfits.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, directed by Jonathan Liebesman and coming this summer, has been a surprisingly tight-lipped production. Very little has actually leaked, other than Vanilla Ice desperately wants to be in it, and the old script was unsurprisingly terrible. But nothing stays under wraps forever, and the design of the Turtles has just leaked, via a crappy Halloween costume.

    Show me a person who has ever been happy with his or her high school yearbook picture, and I’ll show you a person who, when not looking, would get devil horns and blacked out teeth drawn on that yearbook photo. We love terrible, awkward and messed up yearbook photos as much as we love cat GIFs and videos of puppies pushing soccer balls with their noses, because they make us forget about our mundane lives for a brief period of time, and they also remind us that our goofy-as-f*ck photos weren’t as terrible as we’ve always thought.

    If you’ve never been to an Oscars costume party, consider yourself lucky to not be feeling the sting of personal failure when gazing at this most superior cosplay. This winning costume was made by Redditor papthegreek, who posted this photo with the caption, “For our Oscars costume party, I went as the whole movie.” This guy must have been so stoked when Gravity swept the technical awards and got the best director nod for Alfonso Cuaron.

    “Get away from her, you doodyface!” Carsten Riewe built this costume based on the “Caterpillar P5000 Power Loader” from that awesome fight scene in James Cameron’s Aliens. He and his one-year-old daughter wore the Power Loader costume to the Karneval Parade in his hometown in Germany last month. Riewe says it took him 100 hours to finish the baby Power Loader costume.

    We probably don’t cover Sailor Moon often enough in our frequent cosplay galleries, but we’re here to make amends. With puppies. Mayama_ya lives in Japan and makes tiny Sailor Moon outfits for equally tiny chihuahuas. Oh, Japan, never change your kawaii ways. Some of our favorite pictures from Mayama_ya‘s adorable Instagram feed are collected below.

    Wil Wheaton tweeted a picture of the new GOAT at cosplaying Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage on Game Of Thrones. For this year’s MegaCon in Orlando, Mica Bethea converted his wheelchair into the Iron Throne, then disguised his calves with fake boots to make himself appear shorter. Between this costume and the previous mind-blowing Iron Throne cosplay, the bar is being set high for any future Game Of Thrones cosplayers.

    Game Of Thrones Season 4 premieres this Sunday on HBO, and to celebrate we’ve collected our favorite Game Of Thrones cosplay our Flickr Group and Creative Commons has to offer. It’s certainly not the first time we’ve featured mind-blowing costumes based on the series, but this is our largest Game Of Thrones cosplay roundup yet with four galleries in total.
