Muppet Trooper Costumes

Muppet Troopers! How cool! Mike Lica and Derek Lane-Waters of the 501st Legion paid homage to Jim Hensen on his would-be 75th birthday.

There’s a really nice interview with these gentleman over at the Official Star Wars Blog.

Our costumes are a joint effort. Everything that we did involved a phone call, an email, or a visit to make sure we were keeping things consistent. It was important to stay together on this if we were to pull this off without looking different. Most of it was pretty easy. We purchased the masks and made several modifications. We added fans inside to keep cool in case we needed to wear them for an extended time.

It reminds me of the Muppet/Star Wars action figures that Disney used to sell in their theme parks. I wonder if they still do? Yes, Muppets and Star Wars definitely go together. Great job, Gentlemen!

Costumed Musicals of Random Encounters

Random Encounters is a musical group that sings about video game characters. They wear awesome costumes, and their songs and production are actually quite impressive.

Back in March, I did ignorantly post their Pikachu video. I think I was a bit harsh, and called their video annoying. Well, I’m here to say that I was WRONG. I change my mind, and now think these guys are really awesome.

The top video is an impressive song about Ganondorf, from the Legend of Zelda. And below we have a Sonic the Hedgehog tune about Needlemouse.

Great costumes! And now these songs are stuck in my head, thank you very much!

Big thanks to Rob for emailing the tip.

Xylopholks: Musicians in Costumes

Have you heard of the Xylopholks? They’re a New York band that plays 1920’s ragtime music, featuring a rocking xylophone… and they always perform in costumes! Very creative, I think they look and sound great.

The Xylopholks are available for parties and events, so if you live in the New York area and want something unusual, give them a call!
