Colorado Springs high school student Sarah MacDonald recently made herself a shoo-in for homecoming queen by ditching the traditional prom dress in favor of the ever popular inflatable T-Rex costume.
For the uninitiated, T-Rex costumes have been dubbed “the horse mask of 2016” and have been seen shoveling snow, playing soccer on a horse and demonstrating ninja prowess. However, this latest development could be the costume’s “crowning” achievement.
Even Sarah was shocked, stating “Still can’t believe I won homecoming queen because of a T-Rex costume”. We aren’t surprised at all. AT ALL. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Once again, people with immaculately groomed and astonishingly elaborate facial hair have gathered to determine who’s on top in the world of beards and moustaches.
Photographer Greg Anderson was on hand for this year’s event in Nashville, TN and came away with photos of some of the most ostentatious entries, including those inspired by Salvador Dali, bird beaks, and The Nightmare Before Christmas (which is arguably the most creative of all). See more examples below. [click to continue…]
If you look at clutter in your house and wonder “why isn’t that a rabbit?” then Felissimo is about to make your day.
The company has released a line of funny bunny bags via their YOU+MORE! brand that can be filled with stuff and tied off to look like a nesting bunny. The line is inspired by Japanese furoshiki, which is a cloth used to transport goods, and is available in four different varieties, including Holland Lop Ear and a Netherland Dwarf.

Artist Dan Das Mann has made it possible to be a one man dance party anytime, anyplace.
His “Funn Pack” consists of 12 lasers, 1000 watts of sound, 2 smoke machines, 1 bubble machine and 4 mirror balls, all of which can be worn on your back. The mobile unit weighs in at 50 lbs, is powered by a lithium ion battery, and is awesomely awkward.
Mann reportedly tested the device at the Lightning in a Bottle festival in Bradley, California back in May, although its unclear how effectively he could party with all the extra weight. I’m guessing it’s a party for everyone BUT the Funn Pack guy.

For photographer Aaron Sheldon‘s four-year-old son, visiting the doctor’s office was akin to entering an unfamiliar and foreboding abyss. However, his fear was conquered when he “decided to act brave like an astronaut”, and donned a spacesuit for the occasion.
The initial photograph of the experience has since grown into an awesome series entitled “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps“, which features the little astronaut wearing his spacesuit to a variety of locations. Sheldon notes:
My goal is that the images from my “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps” project will remind other moms or dads out there who may be losing their patience in line at the grocery store or coffee shop that our kids aren’t just acting like fools – they are exploring new frontiers. Our job as parents is to act as their mission control and co-pilot to make sure they can explore as much of their new world as possible.

Charlie the chicken has become the most fashionable animal on Arizona’s Snodgrass family farm by strutting around in a pair of custom turquoise blue pants.
As you’ll see in the video below, he still has to warm up to the camera, but that clearly won’t prevent him from becoming a viral sensation. [click to continue…]
After being announced as a concept product last year, Adidas is getting serious about making shoes with recycled ocean trash.
Dubbed “Adidas x Parley” the shoe is the result of a collaboration with anti-ocean-pollution organization Parley. The offering will include an upper made from Parley Ocean Plastic and illegal deep-sea gillnets recovered from the Southern Ocean by the non-profit Sea Shepherd.
However, you won’t be able to buy these in a store just yet. Instead, they will be limited to a run of 50 pairs that will be given away through an Instagram contest that will run through July 31st on Parley and Adidas’ various social media accounts. Keep an eye out, as details are expected to be announced shortly.
If it turns out that you don’t win, then you’ll be happy to know that a commercial release integrating Parley Ocean Plastic with one of their “top footwear franchises” is in the works for the second half of the year. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]

Apparently, ASOS has been sending customers some insanely long jeans, prompting the Internet to cry with laughter and question whether the store is trolling the world.
Case in point, 20-year-old estate agent George Riggall, who received the pair of jeans pictured above. After posting the photos to Twitter, the company contacted George saying that the added length was intentional so the wearer could “comfortably cuff them”.
As you’ll see below, Twitter provided some evidence that this wouldn’t be a hot look. [click to continue…]
It was only a matter of time before the rainbow food trend spread to sushi, and the results make the Japanese delicacy look like a geode of raw meat.
