World Record Zombie Walk in Mexico City

An estimated 10,000 zombies recently took to the streets of Mexico City, in an effort to claim the Guinness world record for largest zombie walk. Looks like they can claim the title, as the current record holder is New Jersey’s Asbury Park, which had “only” 4,000 zombies.

Amazing makeup and costumes! And big thanks to Jeff for the tip.

Ironhide Costume Made from Household Items

This Ironhide Transformers costume is seriously amazing! I received another email from Peter Kokis, the Brooklyn costumer who’s famous for making Transformers and Terminator costumes out of everyday household items. I’ve blogged about his work many times in the past. Follow the above link to view more of his impressive homemade costumes!

Behold his masterpiece… Brooklyn Ironhide! It took him 600 hours to make this costume, and it weighs a whopping 164 lbs. Boy, you get a good workout simply putting this on!

Thanks very much for the heads up, Peter. It’s always good to hear from you. Amazing work!

Brooklyn Ironhide took 600 hours to build and weighs 164lbs., and is the limit of my design & production process, as well as what my body can handle for active, mobile performances lasting a few hours. Like my other exoskeletons, he’s made from ordinary household, hardware, and sporting goods items, stuff we all have in our homes, nothing special. With this guy, I did use some stuff from a local pet store as well. He’s my masterpiece.

Fleece Dragonborn Helmet from Skyrim

Skyrim gamers will be happy to know they can keep their heads warm this winter with a nifty fleece Dragonborn Helmet! Based on the Dragonborn in the game, these hats are hand sewn and made to order for the low price of $39.99.

What a great idea, and fun gift idea. Big thanks to Kojak for the tip!

The helmet is made of 100% polyester Polar Fleece and the horns are stuffed with regular toy craft polyfill. If you must wash it, I recommend gentle soap by hand in the sink and hang to dry.
