Boba Fett Plays the Accordion

Wow, Boba Fett can really jam! Watch as he plays the Legend of Zelda “Lost Woods” theme on the accordion. He’s actually quite good!

Hmm, it doesn’t look like he’s making a lot of money though. Everyone is just walking by like it’s no big deal. What has this world come to?!

Costume Wedding in the UK

Rob and Nyssa from the UK recently got married, and everyone wore costumes! The bride dressed as Jessica Rabbit, and the groom wore a superman costume. Cute couple! I always get a kick out of seeing these costumed weddings.

Bride Nyssa walked down the aisle to the ‘Star Wars’ theme, and after confirming their nuptials the happy couple left to the famous ‘Looney Tunes’ exit music. Rob Taverner said he initially came up with the idea of a cartoon wedding at Worcester Register Office as a joke – but his wife-to-be loved the idea. The 32-year-old self-confessed geek wore the blue Superman top underneath a suit jacket – and donned Clarke Kent style specs.

Bride Nyssa wore a revealing red dress as she imitated curvy cartoon siren Jessica Rabbit, voiced by Kathleen Turner in the 1988 movie. Among the guests were people dressed as the Incredible Hulk, Betty Boop, Tweety-Pie and Catwoman at the wedding with a difference.

Music Videos by Ryan Owen

Please do take the time to watch a music video by Ryan Owen. I just randomly came across his stuff on YouTube, and now I’m a bit hooked. He apparently makes music videos for indy bands, and he’s quite good!

I’m particularly taken with Do the Hand Jive (below), it’s so odd and entertaining, and the song is quite catchy. Watch these ladies do the Hand Jive!

Director: Ryan Owen
Costumes: Clare Roberts @ Marigold


This next video is a bit mesmerizing. Awesome costume (kung fu?), and it looks great against the washed out background scenery.

Director: Ryan Owen
Costumes: Zoe Howerska

Very cool, and I think the Hand Jive song will be stuck in my head all day. You can learn more about Ryan Owen at

Woman Woman Costume and News

Wonder Woman is getting a lot of attention today, with NBC announcing that Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) will play Diana Prince in the new Wonder Woman TV adaption.

David E. Kelley is creating the pilot, and while I hope it’s good, I do have my doubts that the show will do justice to the mighty Amazon. Guess we’ll see!

Anyway, this is a great time to show off this awesome Wonder Woman costume, made by Courtney Coombs. You may recall her awesome Harley Quinn Bikini which was posted a couple weeks ago.

This is one of the girliest costumes I have made, next to Dr.Girlfriend and I think I prefer wearing costumes like this. Hair and makeup is fun!

I made the corset and grieves out of leather my mum bought for me to make a jacket for her but it turned out to be too thick even after treating it. The white strips are made of suade-backed vinyl with silver star buttons sewn on.
Brooches are made out of sculpy. Gauntlets made of sculpy. The skirt and cape were made out of some cheap cotton fabric, but I was going for some historical accuracy so other than muslin or raw silk, cotton was the most common thing in ancient Greece.

Great job with this costume, Courtney. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Didn’t you say a Venom costume is on the way? Yes, please.
