r2 belly

Tony Giordano and his wife Stefaney are expecting. They’re big Star Wars fans so, naturally, they got R2-D2 to help keep things running smoothly until the big day.

Artist Nick Wolfe painted her belly and Daniel Deutsch supplied the life-size droid (and the pictures).

The Nintendo Power Glove came out back in 1989 and, although was a cool idea, it was also complete flop. Still, it has not been forgotten even after all these years. In fact, one glove recently got a new life thanks to animator Dillon Markey who uses the glove as a stop-motion animator on projects like Robot Chicken and PES.

He worked with an electrical engineer to modify the device so that it now works with his stop-motion software via Bluetooth. Not only does it let him more easily calibrate where things should be for each shot, but they added gadgets to the glove like tweezers and sensors that emit the perfect (NSFW) phrase if you do a fist bump.

Liam Porter just got a very cool 3D-printed arm that looks like it belongs to a Clone Trooper. It was made by e-NABLE who 3D print limbs for kids who are growing too quickly to qualify for regular versions. John Peterson made the limb for Liam after being inspired by a group of cosplayers at Maker Faire. They even showed up when Liam got his new arm making it a moment the boy will likely never forget.

david bowie's hairstyles

David Bowie makes me feel like a slacker. He’s successful and has accomplished much over his long career, and also, he’s changed his look repeatedly. I’ve left my hair in the same basic cut and style for years.

In fact, Bowie has sported many fantastic hairstyles. Artist Helen Green illustrated them and created a gif I can’t stop looking at.

See a black and white one sheet by the same artist after the break.

These gorgeous pictures show us how Frozen characters would look in traditional Chinese garb called Cheongsam. It’s the work of Constable-frozen who created these computer-generated versions of Anna and Elsa that puts them in China instead of Norway. We’d love to see this movie.

The ShoeFury goodness just keeps coming. This time around, we’re going Alice In Wonderland-themed with this Cheshies design by Emilie B.

Done in purple and black, you get a smiling Cheshire Cat on the outside and the swoop of that tail on the inside of your foot.

More good stuff out of ShoeFury. This design by Orlando Aracena is titled “Alien Rage”. You may have seen it in this Alien 35th Anniversary poster round up. It definitely looks cool in this new iteration.

Batman V. Superman is set to be a blockbuster of a film and it will include the big screen debut of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Although we are excited to see the character, her outfit is less impressive. This version, by Dave Paget, is much more in line with what we want to see in the movie. Who do we need to call to make this happen?

jabba picks slave leia's outfit

English comedian Adam Buxton recently flipped through the Star Wars Annual with his 5-year-old daughter, and she has some very specific thoughts about Leia’s infamous metal bikini outfit in Return of the Jedi. Her opinion probably isn’t what you’re thinking because it turns out that she likes the Slave Leia look. She knows Jabba the Hutt is bad, but she thinks he “chose a really nice dress” and she likes the way it all comes together and pairs with Leia’s braided hair. She sums it up, “It’s actually a pretty good look for her.”

Buxton tells his daughter that some people think the outfit is demeaning, but her response? She thinks it’s quite nice and she doesn’t care if people don’t agree. It’s flipping adorable and hilarious.

You have to watch the amazing video and hear her commentary after the break.
