Singing Dry Bones in Costume

The Lennon Sisters, a famous singing group and regular act on the Lawrence Welk show, put on skeleton costumes and sing Dry Bones. According to BoingBoing, this was recorded on October 30, 1965.

I think we’ve all heard this tune before. It’s interesting to see this old footage, very cool.

Bonus Munster version!

Reader Submission: London MCM Expo

I received an awesome email from a nice guy named Fid. He sent in tons of photos from his recent visit to the MCM Expo in London.

I do love receiving reader submissions. Thanks, Fid! These photos are great, so many awesome costumes!

A few days ago my sister and I went to this MCM Expo event in London which is like England’s version of comic con and I was wondering if it’s alright for me to share some pics of the event with you?

Me and my sister (her name is Bazlaa) thought it would be great if we came in as Sokka and Katara from Avatar:Last Airbender, book 2 version and since they’re brother ans sister as well 🙂 . This was our first time to experience such an event and it was amazing.

Alan Costume from Hangover 2

The comedy Hangover 2 is now in theaters, and this guy went to the movie in costume. Not bad!

He looks just like the character Alan, played by funnyman Zach Galifianakis. Ha, that’s hilarious!

Captain America Running for Mayor?

It looks like Captain America will be the new mayor of Los Molinos, California. Heh, true story, sort of…

The unincorporated town doesn’t have a real mayor, and the title is only honorary. Intead of being elected, the mayor title goes to whoever can raise the most money for their 4th of July fireworks show.

Funny idea! It gets funnier considering the leading contender is Kevin Benson Sr., who’s raising money dressed as Captain America! Congratulations, sir.

Benson says “I instruct school kids on the value of veterans… One year, a teacher said I was so patriotic I was like Captain America.” He’s raising money with softball and horseshoe tournaments and a barbecue.

Sesame Street Costume Kits

I got a good chuckle out of seeing these new Sesame Street costume kits. Very silly, but also kind of cool. A man walks down the street in that Bert hat, people know he’s not afraid of anything.

If you’re a big Sesame Street fan, you can check out all the new costumes here.

Spidergirl Costume

It’s Spidergirl! She’s the wildest (and cutest) webslinger of all… Very well done! Though it’s too bad she’s not wearing the mask, I want to see how that would have looked.
