Leia Gets Luke a Beer

Hehe, this is some great editing. Or is it a deleted scene? Also, is that Pabst Blue Ribbon?

I have to agree with Unreality, this is one of the best Star Wars animated GIFs I’ve seen in a long time.

Mascot Self-Defense Training

It’s not easy being a mascot at a sports game. You never know when you might have to fight the other team’s furry beast. That’s why UFC champ Georges St-Pierre is teaching self-defense for mascots!

“If the mascot has a tail, use it.” LOL

Here are a few mascots fights, to help demonstrate the point. We live in a violent world, folks, and no one is safe.

Awesome Werewolf Costume

Wow, check out this incredible werewolf costume, made by CReeves76 and posted on DeviantArt. So realistic, it’s scary!

Be sure to watch the videos so you can see this monster in action!

My inspiration was “American Werewolf of London” meets “Underwold”. The head and legs were sculpted and cast in latex using a kit from Monster Makers. The stilts were based off of the Gryphern design and slightly modified. The teeth and gums were sculpted and cast using dental acrylic. The body is a spandex body suit that I sewed the muscles into and painted latex on top of it. The forearms and eyes are the only items I actually purchased. Then everything was airbrushed and fur was added. I also installed some led booklights from the dollar store behind the eyes to make them light up.

The Amazing Spider-Man

I think by now we’ve all seen the new Spider-Man movie costume, but here it is again in a new image released by Sony. Yesterday, Sony announced the official title for the movie: The Amazing Spider-Man.

My only comment about this suit, which looks nice, is regarding the texture. It just reminds me of a basketball. Funny, apparently I’m not alone. I did some searching, hoping to find a cool Spider-Man basketball, but instead of found this funny Photoshopped pic of Orange Spider-Man.

Yep, he definitely looks like a basketball. 🙂

Cancer Patient Uses Costume to Feel Better

This is so touching… a breast cancer patient named “Jennifrog” who lost her hair from chemo decided to make the best of it — by dressing in a Buddhist monk costume.

I don’t know who this couragous gal is, but I saw her post on Reddit and Flickr.

Chemo sucked but I did get to have some fun with it…. The Buddhist Monk!

Very sad, yet her courage and smile are so very touching and inspirational. It’s wonderful that she’s able to use a costume to help her get through this process.

Thank you for sharing. You certainly have our best wishes for a speedy recovery!
