New Teaser and Extended Trailer for CW’s Flash

CW’s promotion of their new Flash TV show is running full speed ahead. Below are two videos that give us a nice look at Arrow spinoff.

CW first released this teaser, then they quickly followed up with an extended trailer. It’s heavy with crossover support from Oliver Queen himself, and I’m pleasantly surprised how good this looks. I will certainly be watching this fall!

HBO Releases Official Game of Thrones Costumes

Good news for Game of Thrones fans… HBO is now selling their own official line of costumes! And supposedly more women’s costumes are on the way. Very smart of them, I think these will do quite well.

No sign of a White Walker costume yet, but it’s a great start.

Little Mermaid Costumes on SNL

Anna Kendricks did a great job as host on last night’s SNL. Here’s funny sketch full of Little Mermaid costumes. The villain Ursula agrees to grant a wish to Ariel in exchange for her voice. But things take a turn for the worse when Ariel sings like Britney Spears. 🙂

Seth Meyers had some fun with the Late Night Players Theater Troupe, who recently reenacted cartoons from the New Yorker magazine. A creative idea, and naturally they use lots of costumes. Well done!
