I received an awesome email from Brooklyn’s finest costumer, Peter Kokis. He makes awesome costumes out of everyday household items, and you may recall his Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Transformers costumes which I’ve posted in the past.
Peter’s back with this incredible T-800 endoskeleton, made mostly out of bathroom hardware. So cool!
I’ve completed my latest exoskeleton, a depiction of the iconic T-800 endoskeleton that I call “Brooklyn Terminator”. As with my Brooklyn Optimus Prime and Brooklyn Bumblebee, he’s made from ordinary and readily-available household, hardware, & discount store items. Nothing special. Actually, bathroom stuff (toilet paper holders, toilet seat hardware, toilet tank hardware, potty trainer seat) make up a lot of him. He took 300 hours to build and weighs 120 lbs.
Vayren on Reddit made a cool Robot Unicorn costume, based off the popular online game. Players pilot a unicorn as it flies through the skies, doesn’t that sound fun? The game started on AdultSwim.com, then eventually moved to the iPhone and Facebook as well.
I’m glad someone made a costume, it was about time.
The Smurfs comes out next month, and the advertisers are out in full force.
Promoters recently organized a huge World Smurfs Day in Mexico City. They set the record for the most Smurfs costumes in one place. Hmm, I wonder if these guys are crying and getting blue makeup everywhere.
In order to be counted, people had to be painted blue, and be wearing the Smurf hat, blue shirt, white pants and shoes.
Update: Apparently the record wasn’t set in Mexico City alone. This was a team effort of 4,891 fans from 11 different cities, sponsored by Sony.
