Kittens Wear Assassin’s Creed Costumes

Everything’s better with kittens… including this wonderful tribute to Assassin’s Creed. These little balls of fur may look cute, but they are actually quite deadly. There is no escape!

This was made by Mr.TVCow, who certainly deserves a round of applause for his fine work.

Amazing Final Fantasy Themed Wedding

Here’s a lovely musical montage of a Final Fantasy themed wedding. Wow, what a beautiful event. The bride and groom dressed as the characters White Mage and Squall. The guests also dressed up, but if they weren’t fans of Final Fantasy, they were encouraged to wear a costume of their favorite character. What a magical time, congrats to the happy couple!

“Not all guests and relatives know Final Fantasy so we let them choose their own favorite characters instead,” writes YouTuber JeanBilius, who added, “Hubby doesn’t like Rinoa. He prefers White Mages and Yuna.”

Homemade Game Boy Costume is Actually Playable

This gentleman made an awesome Game Boy costume, and it’s actually playable! It was a big hit at last month’s Ohayocon 2014 in Columbus, OH. The system uses Raspberry Pi, and the shape of large cartridges triggers which game to load. Really amazing! You can watch the costume in action in the video below.

Making Mischief in a Sonic the Hedgehog Costume

Costume prankster Rémi Gaillard is back, this time dressed as Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s a worthy attempt to imitate the game play, but I guess the cops don’t see it that way. 🙂 Ha, I wonder how many times he’s been arrested?
