Here’s an adorable photo shoot by photographer Karen Abad, featuring a little baby girl dressed as various TV show character costumes. Photos include characters from Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Walking Dead, and more. The sets are created with blankets, paper, and string. It’s very clever and cute.
Head on over to Karen Abad’s Tumblr to view the full series.

Most amazing costume ever? Carsten Riewe made this incredible Power Loader costume from the movie Aliens, and it looks like his baby daughter is driving it. Way too awesome! The baby sits in a harness, and he carries her as he walks around. The costume includes sounds, and took 100 hours to make. Fabulous work!
This Baby costume was inspired by the Caterpillar P5000 Powerloader from the movie “Aliens” by James Cameron. The arms and legs are full moveable and the top-light and LED were powered by an 12 Volt battery pack stored in the backpack. The on/off switch is in the left arm. Also in the backpack a Bluetooth boombox ist installed to play mechanical robot sound fx or music if preferred. It took 100 working hours to finnish the costume and I built it for the “Karneval”-Parade in my hometown in Germany February 2014 . My 13 months old daughter enjoyed to be carried and moved in her harnness savely.

Here’s a first full look at the Flash costume! Warner Bros. has released this image of actor Grant Gustin in the iconic costume, and the pilot for CW’s TV show is currently in production. You can click on the photo to view full size.
What do you think? It’s pretty straightforward, actually. The red is a little dark, but it doesn’t bother me. I’m hoping the pilot gets picked up and we get many seasons of the fastest man alive!

Over on Kotaku, Talented artist Varia shares her process of making amazing prosthetics. Wow, so talented! It looks like an awfully complicated process, but Varia does a great job breaking things down to some basic steps.

I start by sketching my concept out in 2D before beginning my 3D sculpt to help me visualise the forms I want to create when the piece is photographed, and knock out where any flat areas might be once it’s in that medium. It’s worth doing a lot of sketches of different ideas and from different angles to discover new things and see what does or doesn’t work.
It’s Super Cat! What a great photo, he looks ready to save the world.
Supercat!!! Best purchase!
Meet Boots, the costume loving dog! He’s a very patient fellow, who doesn’t seem to mind that his owner loves dressing him in costumes. He knows just how to strike a pose, what a good dog.
There’s a fun gallery over Buzzfeed that features his many costumes. Boots dresses up as a Powderpuff Girl, reindeer, hipster, Minion from Despicable Me, and much more! Follow the link to view the full gallery. Great job, Boots!
Just look at all of these tasty beards. Artist Takao Sakai has created a fake fashion trend made up of a Japanese candy from azuki beans. A series of photos shows normal people out and about wearing beards made of candy. Ha, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s fake these days.
“If some media outside of Japan would mistakenly think that this is really fashion and would report it as news, then I would have succeeded…”
