I Am Creepy Groot

groot

There will likely be more than a few people running around at Halloween dressed as Groot, and hopefully none of them will be wearing this mask. I think it’s because there’s no makeup around his eyes, but this guy looks like a deranged serial killer. Please, when you dress up as Groot, do not be this guy. If you are this guy, please stay away from me.

Here’s the perfect shirt for those addicted to taking selfies.

Ugh.

It was designed by Timur Kim to help frame your face and create the perfect shot. This involves a kind of odd geometric design adorning the neckline of several different shirts. Also, these shirts cost roughly $166 so the price of the perfect selfie is a little high, but if you’re into selfies, then it’d be worth it. Right?

map dress 1

Tumblr user permetstu decided to make a Marauder’s Map dress for LeakyCon. However, she didn’t try to get the iconic imagery from Harry Potter printed onto a dress. Instead, she made the dress and drew the map on by hand with fine point Sharpies. I’m not even kidding. All those tiny lines, all those letters – it’s all done by hand. Just the text on the front of the dress took three and a half hours. I’d love to see the pile of used Sharpies it took to complete this project.

Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly may be playing Hope Van Dyne in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man movie, but her hair sure makes her look like Wasp. Lilly posted a picture of the short ‘do on Instagram yesterday stating, “How’s my new do?” Another picture shows her with Paul Rudd so it seems very likely that she’s on set.

So, the question is will Lilly essentially be playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Wasp who goes by another name that isn’t Janet Van Dyne? If that’s the case, I don’t understand the reasoning for changing it up. Or, is Marvel just screwing with us and giving Lilly a bob cut to make us curious? Ahhh! I want answers.

See another pic of the hair and a comparison with Wasp after the break.

gotg tee before and after

Take a close look at the Guardians of the Galaxy t-shirt pictured above left. Someone important is missing: Gamora. The female assassin is a member of the Guardians team and has a pretty hefty role in the Marvel film, but she’s being left out of merchandise. I noticed her missing in t-shirts, a coffee mug, and even party supplies.

Twitter user Kristen spotted this exclusionary tee at The Children’s Place and decided to write them about it. In the meantime, her daughter fixed the shirt by adding Gamora. She did a fine job. The Children’s Place, however, not so much. This is how they replied to Kristen’s question about the lack of Gamora on the t-shirt:

“We rely on advice from our licensors for our licensed tees. The Guardians of the Galaxy shirt in particular is a boy’s shirt, which is why it does not include the female character Gamora. We try to have a diverse assortment but unfortunately cannot represent each movie and character.”

Not. Impressed.

I know, I know, I know – again with a Chris Pratt post. But, here’s the thing, he keeps doing really awesome stuff like fulfilling his promise to visit sick kids as Star-Lord.

Here we see him making everyone’s day at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. As part of his visit, he arranged a screening and let the kids wear the jacket. According to E!:

The 35-year-old actor spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.

Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.

He also made sure to hang with kids who couldn’t attend the screening so they got to meet him and take pictures.

Basically, he’s perfect.

Head after the break to see a couple of tweets about his visit.
