Stars Wear Roach Costumes at Breaking Bad Premiere Party

Here’s one for Breaking Bad fans… the new season starts soon, on July 15th! These photos were taken at some recent premiere event party. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are wearing cockroach costumes! How interesting. It must have something to do with the plot of season 5. Guess we’ll find out soon.

I sure love Breaking Bad. It’s definitely one of the best shows ever made. If you haven’t seen it, you are missing out!

Learning about Bees with Costumes

Here’s a great example of how costumes can be used in education. Isabella Rossellini and friends dress up in bee costumes, and explain how bees stay alive, how they communicate, and how they help other plants survive through pollination.

Sounds like a lot of work, but I guess that’s why they are called Busy Bees!

Cat in Sweater Packs for Vacation

Here’s a cute kitty in a lovely red sweater, getting ready to go on vacation. What’s he going to pack?

This is just a funny video that gave me a chuckle. The actor is actually pretty good, I think — and the dressed up cat gives me the excuse I need to post it! I hope they have a good vacation.

Vintage Photo of Top Hat Swimmers

These dapper gentlemen may not be wearing much, but they do have mighty fine top hats. LOL, what a great photo. This is The Brighton Swimming Club and Sea Bathing for Men, taken in 1863.

A group photograph of nineteen members of the Brighton Swimming Club, believed to have been taken by the photographer Benjamin William Botham in 1863. The Brighton Swimming Club was established following a meeting of swimming enthusiasts at The Jolly Fisherman in Brighton’s Market Street, on 4th May 1860.

Thanks to Dr. Bob for the tip!

George R.R. Martin Costume in Parody Video

Fans of Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire series are sure to get a kick out of this song by Paul and Storm. While we all love the books, everyone knows that author George R.R. Martin… well, lets say that he likes to take his time, shall we?

This song does a great job of praising the books, while telling George to hurry up and finish writing! I love the George Martin costumes in this video. Paul and Storm did a great job giving him a little well deserved teasing. Write like the wind, George!
