Doh! Simpsons costumes!

Pablo sent me a few photos of people in Simpsons costumes, asking me to post them, and I’m only too happy to oblige. Ha, these are pretty good! Though Homer’s eyeballs kind of freak me out.

Thanks, Pablo!

Metal Man’s Costume Looks Awfully Familiar

Have you heard of Metal Man? This direct-to-video low budget movie pays big tribute to Iron Man.

The costumes are VERY similar. This definitely looks like a bad movie, but I don’t know – it could be fun.

Jimmy Fallon Goes to Comic-Con in Costume

Here’s a great clip of Jimmy Fallon as he goes to Comic-Con and tries to pitch his superhero idea, The Recharger.

Pretty funny stuff! It looks like he really had fun at the Con and the celebrities enjoyed playing along.

Costumes from Comic-Con 2009

Comic-Con 2009 just wrapped up in San Diego, and fantastic costume photos are flooding the web. I love this time of year!

After visiting two big groups on Flickr: SDCC09 & SDCC2009, along with some great photos by GreatWhiteSnark – I realize there are just way too many great costume photos to post. What’s a costume blogger to do?

Here are a few of my favorites. Be sure to check the links above to view hundreds of great costume photos!

Star Wars: The Concert

Well, it ain’t exactly Bill Murray singing “Star Wars” as Nick Winters on SNL, but maybe the new “Star Wars in Concert” will be just as entertaining.

The concert will feature a symphony orchestra and choir performing John Williams’ music from the six “Star Wars” films. C-3P0 actor, Anthony daniels will narrate the performance live and movie footage will be displayed on a three-story-tall high-definition screen, synchronized to the live music.

“Star Wars in Concert” will kick off its first tour at the Honda Center in Aanaheim, California on October 1st and then travel to several North American cities before going global.

I wonder if Bill Murray will put in an appearance?

From Aliens to Antiques: Huge Prop Auction Scheduled

20th-century-props-2.jpg

If you’re an amateur film maker, want to start your own prop business or simply want to get your hands on some really cool props, now’s your chance.

20th century props, the largest prop house under one roof, is closing its doors after 40 years of business. Founder and owner Harvey Schwartz made the decision to close the company after suffering 12 consecutive months of losses arising from the recession as well as the Screen Actors Guild labor dispute.

You’re sure to find lots of treasures among the warehouse’s 200,000 square feet of over 91,000 pieces.

A public auction will be held on-site and by webcast from July 28-Aug. 1, starting at 9:30 a.m. each day.

So get your wallets out and start bidding on everything from aliens to antiques…here’s a cool video of some of the great items up for grabs. I think I want the Austen Powers escape pod, for starters.
