As you probably recall, the 1993 movie Jurassic Park featured a can of Barbasol modified to smuggle dinosaur embryos. In a nod to the original, Barbasol is promoting Jurassic World with special limited edition cans. They feature art by Mark Enlgert and are part of a sweepstakes where you can win all sorts of prizes, including a vacation.

Spoiler alert: the twist in Jurassic World is that the dinosaurs were genetically modified to be cute for an exhibit called “Dinos: Super Kawaii”.
It proved to be very popular with visitors but then things backfired. Now Chris Pratt’s character must avoid being cuddled to death.

What if Yoshi wasn’t a cute and innocent little dinosaur? In this Super Mario Bros. and Jurassic Park mash-up t-shirt design by Taylor Rose, Yoshi is a dangerous Tyrannosaurus Rex chasing Mario, Luigi, and Peach. You might feel bad for them at first, but maybe this is what they deserve.

Jurassic Park was terrifying for many reasons, but it especially got spine-tingling when the velociraptors learned how to open doors. Even just looking at this awesome / unique / hilarious tattoo gives me the shivers I felt while watching the kitchen scene in the movie.
We believe this tattoo was done at Jackson Street Tattoo in Seattle.

Haute couture cosplay designs are on the rise, and there are plenty of talented artists stepping up with fashionable sketches. Sara Richard is one of them, and she’s just launched a new project called HautePopC. She’s combining her love of fashion, character design and cosplay to come up with some creative concepts that I hope cosplayers will make a reality. So far she’s drafted sexy looks for Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Marty and Doc Brown, and even Ray Arnold – you know, Sam Jackson’s character in Jurassic Park.
I love her style, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

Ok, hold on to your butts: In this clip from a show in Japan, an unsuspecting man is startled by a guy in a pretty detailed dinosaur costume. Yeah, I know you can see the guy’s legs sticking out from the dino’s tummy, but the show’s producers really spared no expense. I can imagine the poor prankee was probably screaming in his mind, “Shoot her! Shoot her!”
I’m forcing this quote, but I can’t not say it. It’s my favorite. Ready? Ok.
Watch all the dino-fun after the break…
You never know what you’ll see at a costume contest, especially at a new convention. The masquerade at the first Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles had at least one bright spot though: a Jurassic Park ensemble. You read that correctly. Two cosplayers teamed up to portray the hunt between gamekeeper Robert Muldoon and the velociraptor. There’s even a mini park vehicle. Clever cosplayers.
Watch the skit in action in not one, but two, videos after the break.
