Funny Lemongrab Cosplay

Fans of Adventure Time should appreciate these costumes– It’s the Lemongrabs! Two lemon-headed brothers who also have kids… hey don’t ask me, the show is really weird.

If you haven’t seen this before, do check out the clip below. It’s quite possibly one of my favorite scenes from any cartoon, ever. Just so bizarre! I’ve watched this over and over, I can’t help it. 🙂

Beautiful Dress Made out of Book Pages

Check out this beautiful dress, made out of a book! Jori Phillips created this dress to wear to a readers and writers festival. I bet she stole the show. The dress is made out of pages torn from a thesaurus.

You can watch her interview with ABC News below. Amazing job!

Sleeping Clown Performance Art

Sshhh, he’s sleeping. Ha, folks in New York City were a bit surprised by a man in a clown costume, sleeping on a bench outside City Hall.

Turns out, this is performance artist Ugo Rondinone, who’s part of a public art exhibit called Lightness of Being. The exhibit is a mixture of sculptures and performances, and runs until Dec. 13, 2013. Only in New York!

Swim Safely with a Boat Dress

How’s this for a swimsuit? It’s a very fashionable boat dress! Designed by Australian artist Jacqueline Bradley, the dress actually floats in water. She made this for a 2011 art exhibit that focused on the outdoors.

The dress itself is designed after a 1950’s style sundress. It’s very pretty, but I kind of wish the dress was all yellow and she wore a giant duck mask. 🙂

High Tech Gorilla Costume from the movie ‘Instinct’

The Stan Winston School specializes in monster making and special effects. Here’s an interesting video from 1999, when they worked on the movie Instinct, starring Anthony Hopkins.

At first I thought this little gorilla was a robot, but it’s a costume. Actor Verne Troyer is inside– you may know him as Mini Me from the Austin Power movies. What an amazing costume! Very cool.

Vintage Rendition of “Call Me Maybe”

Here’s a fun, old-timey rendition of the song Call Me Maybe. I love all the 1920’s costumes, and they really manage to capture the sound of that time period.

This band is Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox. Check out their music on Great job, Guys!

If Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was written in 1927, it probably would have been used to advertise a brand new Model 102 telephone. Here’s a pre-modern, digitally aged video of Postmodern Jukebox doing just that.
