Superhero Costume Geddan

This looks like so much fun! Superheroes from Costume Craze did a Geddan dance. Get Down!

Head on over to their Blog to view a bunch of cool superhero photos from their video shoot.

Edit: I wanted to mention — This is Chajiko in this photo! She’s a costume guru and welcome contributor to MyDisguises. Doesn’t she look awesome as The Flash? What a fun photo.

 

Here are a few more costumed geddan videos. There are a ton of these on Youtube, how funny. The last video by Know Your Meme explains this odd phenomenon quite well.

If you watch all of these videos, beware: The song will be stuck in your head for days. And the only way to get it out is to make your own geddan!

Galactic Empire State of Mind

College Humor recently released this funny music video parody of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ song, Empire State of Mind.

There are some great Star Wars costumes in this version, appropriately titled Galactic Empire State of Mind. Vader is on the mike, Princess Leia plays piano, and there’s dancing Ewoks, Stormtroopers and Rebel fighters.

Very funny!

Here’s the original song by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys.

Laputa Robot Cosplay

This robot costume looks incredible!  It’s a shame that it doesn’t move very well, but its maker, known as Alice and the Queen and LadyBeth, still deserves a ton of praise for a job well done.

Phoenix Basketball Goes Star Wars

starwars_tshirts_vote

The NBA has officially blown my mind. On April 11, the Phoenix Suns will host Star Wars: The Clone Wars night.

Everyone is encouraged to come to the game in Star Wars costumes and participate in a costume contest. Their Gorilla mascot will fight a lightsaber duel. The cheerleaders will be dressed as Princess Leia, and they’re giving away one of the shirts shown above. WOW!

They are letting fans decide which shirt to give away. You can vote by emailing starwars@suns.com or by sending a tweet to @PhoenixSuns.

This sounds really fun!

In partnership with Lucasfilm, the Suns will offer a special discounted ticket package that includes an exclusive Phoenix Suns/Star Wars t-shirt (see below) and photo opportunities with classic Star Wars characters. The unique night will also feature in-game Star Wars entertainment, including a “Star Wars on Planet Orange” player introduction video, Suns Dancers in Princess Leia costumes, a Gorilla lightsaber duel and a sneak peek at an upcoming episode of the hit Cartoon Network series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Additionally, all fans attending the game are encouraged to dress like their favorite Star Wars characters for a chance to win official Star Wars merchandise. No masks or weapons will be allowed inside US Airways Center.

“This is going to be a fun night for our fans of all ages, from those who remember watching the original Star Wars film in the theaters in 1977 to those young fans who are growing up with The Clone Wars animated series today,” said Jeramie McPeek, Suns Vice President of Digital. “We are very proud to be partnering with such a strong brand, known around the world and throughout the galaxy. The Force is strong on Planet Orange.”

Costume Shop Threatened Over Oscar Statues

Here’s a spirited news report from New Zealand. A small Auckland costume shop is facing legal trouble for renting out statues of the Oscar as costume props for parties.

I’m a bit surprised at how funny they make this story, showing clips of Oscar winners sobbing and accusing the Academy of being uptight bullies. And for some reason, the reporter makes a point of saying Jennifer Aniston can’t act.

You’d think they’d have more important things to worry about. Like the fact Jennifer Aniston really can’t act. Or the fact that so many of their blockbusters feel lame, tired and predictable. But no, the academy is seriously worried about eight statues of Oscar, on the other side of the world.
