bird of paradise

If you saw the BBC’s wonderful Planet Earth documentary series, you may recall the Bird Of Paradise and its bizarre mating dance pictured above.

Jaime Margary cosplayed it, and the results are spectacular/horrifying as you can see below.

stormtrooper dressing room

Behold, the dressing room for Team Stormtrooper. You can tell that there hasn’t been any victorious champagne parties in there. Everything is spotless.

The photo comes via Wired, who had a marvel opportunity to tour the Stormtrooper dressing room for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Head on over to Wired for more pics and info.

chewbacca boots

There has been some speculation that Rey is crying over Chewbacca’s body in the Force Awakens trailer. If that turns out to be the case, let’s hope these boots aren’t made of real Wookiee.

Actually, these boots from Irregular Choice are brown faux fur with silver laces and digital Chewbacca prints. So Chewie basically has your back when you wear them.

This Jumpsuit Has A Cat Pouch


The Meowgaroo Hoodie has been upgraded into an entire jumpsuit.

Now you can walk among the cats and they will accept you as one of their own. They will revere you for your unique ability to transport other cats around in a special pouch. They will watch in awe as you unzip your tail to poop in a human toilet.

You will be a god among cats.

Well, the first one we’ve seen anyway.

It’s the work of Chris Jones Tattoo. If I’m the dude with the tattoo, I would be spending every waking moment until the premiere hoping that this movie doesn’t suck.

Everyone knows that stepping on a Lego brick with bare feet is the worst kind of pain. However, it seems that Lego has finally acknowledged the problem with these anti-Lego slippers that feature extra protective padding.

The slippers were created as part of a collaboration between Lego and ad agency Brand Station for a holiday promotion. Unfortunately, only 1500 pairs will be produced, but they are being randomly given away to people that create a wish list on the Lego France website.

Not to worry though. Even if you don’t secure a pair, these Lego slippers would probably be a suitable replacement.

These socks just made me laugh.

In a world where socks have capes, these rabbit-eared Louise versions are just the best.

The following video from Wired puts a spotlight on the incredible talents of costume and prop-maker Shawn Thorsson. This guy tackles some ambitious projects like Iron Man and Warhammer armor and even a full-scale ED-209 replica.

It’s truly inspiring stuff. Maybe I’ll skip taking that nap today.
