Official Dark Knight Motorcycle Costume

Official Dark Knight Motorcycle Costume

Wow, check out this costume! UD Replicas is making an officially licensed replica of Batman’s motorcycle suit which appeared in The Dark Knight. This looks so incredible – I wonder how much it will cost? The costume includes the leather jacket, pants, boots and gloves.

Here’s the official description:

Official Dark Knight Motorcycle Costume

An Officially Licensed Replica Like No Other is Coming.

• Strong Cordura Mesh Base with Heavy-duty 4 way stretch Spandex inserts.
• Removable CE Approved Body Armor in both Jacket and Pants.
• Highly detailed, removable lightweight interior lining.
• Form Molded Leather and Kevlar Armor Sectons.
• Made from Quality Tanned Cow Hides

So. Very. Cool. There’s no street date yet for this costume, UD’s website just says “Coming Soon.” I can’t wait to see this costume in action!

Speaking of action, here’s a short clip of the motorcycle scene in The Dark Knight.

Rare Photos of Early Star Trek Conventions

Star Trek Conventions in the 1970s

Wow, Newsweek has published an incredible gallery featuring rare photos of early Star Trek conventions in the 1970s!

I love the old school look and feel of these events, and the costumes are awesome! The original Star Trek fans successfully fought to save their show. They kept Trek alive, and they started the entire fan convention phenomena. Geeks around the world owe a lot to these passionate fans. Truly amazing and wonderful people!

Steampunk Cylons

Steampunk Cylons

I’m not sure how I missed this, but back in March, Dvice.com ran a Steampunk Cylon contest. The entries are incredible.

What cool idea. I love the detail that went into the designs. It just goes to show that everything is better with steampunk!

To celebrate the new Star Trek movie, MSNBC has posted a fun gallery of fan-submitted Star Trek costumes! It looks like a mix of homemade, commercial and Star Trek Experience costumes.

These are really great. I bet movie theaters will be full of fans dressed in Star Trek costumes this weekend, it will be a total blast!

Firefly Costumes & Props Archive

Firefly Costumes & Props Archive

A Firefly Archive has been recently put online. Very, very cool! It includes actual props and costumes that were used in the filming of the 2002 TV series, Firefly.

The owner of the site is a rabid collector and it’s really nice that he put his collection online for fans. He has Mal’s original browncoat, along with lots of weapons and set props – many are actual antiques from the early 1900’s.

Check it out at the Firefly Archive!

Never seen Firefly before? You’re really missing out! The entire series is available on Hulu.com for free!

Dazzle Your Mouth…with Twilight Candy

sweethearts-edward-candy.jpg

I have a Twilight sweater that’s too small for me…but I wear it anyway. I just can’t bring myself to part with it. I guess you could say I’m a sucker for most things “Twilight.” But I do have limits…I’m not going to wear an Edward and Bella Band-Aid, for example.

With all the available Twilight paraphernalia out there, I’m like a kid in a candy store…speaking of which, did you know you can now dazzle your mouth with Twilight candy? (I wonder what “Dazzle” tastes like?)

twilight-candy.jpg

Sweethearts Conversation Hearts has created “Forbidden Fruit,” Twilight candy that sparkles. The hearts include messages like: Bite Me, Soul Mate, Bad Guy, Always, U R My Life, I Trust You, Lamb, Dazzle and Live 4 Ever. You can buy Twilight Sweethearts Conversation Hearts on Amazon and I’ve heard, at your local FYE.

Right now I’m just curious about that mysterious little message on the box that reads “secret scent rub to reveal.” I gotta go check that out.
