    The Best Cosplayers We Saw at Toronto ComiCon 2014

    In spite of the awful way in which the organizers of Toronto ComiCon treated the cosplay community in the days leading up to the convention, the cosplayers were out in full force on this chilly Toronto weekend! To celebrate their bravery and beauty, we've put together a gallery of the very best (and most hilarious) outfits we saw this weekend.

    Our 15 Best Finds (So Far) From Toronto ComiCon

    Toronto ComiCon is in full swing, and your Weekend Editor Sam (that's me!) has been there checking it all out! I'm putting aside my displeasure at their horrific attitude towards cosplay harassment (which I'm not okay with) in order to support some of the amazing artists selling their goodies at the con. And the goodies have been awesome.

    Toronto’s Streets Are Full of Anthropomorphized Monster Objects

    Aiden Glynn is a street artist who likes to put together wacky nerd-related grafitti and tags up all around Toronto. His latest project involves glueing eyes, teeth, and sometimes tongues to different objects like grates and trash cans. The result is something that looks like like Sesame Street mashed up with Pixar's Cars. We're big fans.

    Because It’s Monday Morning, Here Is A Well-Dressed Monkey In A Canadian IKEA

    Look, we've all been there -- you find yourself needing a new bookcase, so you decide to head to the local IKEA to purchase some new shelves, and maybe grab a couple of tasty meatballs while you're at it. In the rush of excitement of shopping for new furniture, though, you accidentally leave your pet monkey behind. Happens to the best of us, right? OK, on second thought, maybe that's not a series of events that you're familiar with, but at least one Canadian shopper presumably is, judging by the rhesus macaque monkey found wandering a Toronto IKEA yesterday afternoon.

    The Joy of Books [Video]

    You can do a lot with eBooks: Carry hundreds of them in a device that weighs a few ounces, read them across multiple platforms, you can even loan and borrow them. However, I don't think you'd be able to create as impressive and charming an animation as this one from a husband and wife team over many nights at the  Type Books store in Toronto. Made using only the books in the shop, this video is a love letter to the printed word.

    Multicolored Paper Sculptures Are Astounding

    Artist Jen Stark has recently put some paper sculptures on display at Toronto’s Cooper Cole Gallery and even from all the way over here on the Internet, they look amazing. Created from pages upon pages upon pages of florecent colored paper, Stark's sculptures come at the idea of paper art from a number of different directions, all of them very pretty. I used to make paper balloons in middle school; Suddenly I wish I had never stopped.
