Gorilla Bow: Ancient Bow Reimagined into A Versatile, Mobile Gym Equipment

I confess. I am not so much of an archer and so when I first picked up a bow and arrow, I realized that you do need some pretty serious core upper body strength to work this range weapon. It was nothing like Hollywood movies where the protagonist just picked one up and becomes a marksman right away. Not even close. Anywho, understanding the strength a bow can offer, a start up leverages on the shape of this ancient weapon to create a versatile and effective fitness equipment which you can bring anywhere. Gorilla Bow, as it is called, combines the structure of a bow with a powerful resistance band technology to enable users to work on their back, chest, arms, shoulders, and even legs. It is almost like having your own gym, but without the need to confine yourself in a mirrored wall, air-conditioned room with a dozen of sweaty dudes. Continue reading Gorilla Bow: Ancient Bow Reimagined into A Versatile, Mobile Gym Equipment

2013’s Blizzcon “Gamer Who Has No Real Life” Cosplay Is Eerily Accurate

We have seen countless numbers of pretty mind-blowing cosplay. Some of which we did managed to feature here and if we missed it, we would usually give it a pass, but there was one remarkably accurate cosplay that somehow managed to slip under our radar and had we lamenting why hadn’t we uncovered this back in 2013 when it appeared. Anyways, I guess there’s no point crying over spilled milk and so, in case you haven’t caught it, here it is, the Blizzcon 2013’s “how do you kill that which has no life” cosplay, or more appropriately “gamer who has no real life.” Continue reading 2013’s Blizzcon “Gamer Who Has No Real Life” Cosplay Is Eerily Accurate

Leg-worn Sleds Let You Sled Anytime Without Carrying A Sled

Winter’s coming and so is a new way of sliding down the slope. Meet Sled Legs, the world’s first wearable sleds. Looking much like a hockey goalie leg pads when worn (or Iron Man’s lower limbs, as some may say), Sled Legs lets you slide down the slope just like you would on a conventional sled. The only difference is, you don’t have pick the sled up when you’re done; you just stand up and walk away. Just like that. Find another slope calling out to you and do it all over again.

Of Course Optimus Amazon Prime Costume Is A Win Because, Prime

No, that’s not a pre-CGI-skinned Optimus Prime – that’s Caron Arnold, creative director of St. Louis-based marketing agency, Fusion Marketing, behind the costume she made using only Amazon Prime boxes. How fitting! You know, Amazon Prime and Optimus Prime? Get it? Get it? Anywho, with the Amazon Prime boxes she has amassed over god-knows-for-how-long and those contributed by her colleagues, Caron cobbled up this strangely attractive costume which bagged her the best Halloween costume contest in her office. Of course, why wouldn’t she win? It is a freaking Prime and Prime always win! But we are baffled by why would anyone keep those boxes around after retrieving the contents and also obviously, she has quite a bit of orders coming from Amazon. Continue reading Of Course Optimus Amazon Prime Costume Is A Win Because, Prime

Wolf Spider-Inspired Halloween Costume: It’s A Scary Party Spider

Halloween is barely a week from now and so, if you have yet to cobble up a costume, then this is it. Though a Realistic Spider Insect Costume may not right up your alley, but hey, you want a costume that’s ready-to-wear, this would be one of the few awesome choices. Besides, I am sure dressing up as Spiderman is a little passé these days and so, dressing up as an actual wolf spider is a surefire way to make you stand out. However, as you can see, this costume isn’t exactly party-friendly, especially when there’s little to no real estate at the party place. Continue reading Wolf Spider-Inspired Halloween Costume: It’s A Scary Party Spider

Licki Brush Lets You Brush Your Cat By Licking… Wait. What!??

There’s a reason why cats love to lick each other or themselves. No, wait. Actually they probably don’t love the act; they simply do it because they don’t have frickin’ hands with digits like humans do to hold a brush. However, that does not stop humans to think our feline friends love to be licked and that leads to the creation of the weirdest thing we heard all day: LICKI Brush. Human’s tongue does not have tiny, backward-facing barbs like cats do and so, you won’t be able to give the ‘sensation’ that cats supposedly craved even if you choose to lick your cat with your tongue. But please don’t do that. That’s gross and you will end up stomaching lots of feline hair. Continue reading Licki Brush Lets You Brush Your Cat By Licking… Wait. What!??

Dad Made Junior An Adorable Star Wars Luke-on-Tauntaun Costume

Kids with parents who have the knack for handicraft are super lucky, especially when it comes to Halloween. These kids may be too young to understand, but they do get surprises, like being able to dress up as E.T., or like this super fortunate little fellow, as a tauntaun-riding Luke Skywalker, when they go door-to-door to do their trick-or-treat thing. Little is known about this costume, but do know that it is entirely handcrafted by a loving dad by the name of Clint Case who, no doubt, is a Star Wars fan and would love to pass on his fandom to the young Padawan. Continue reading Dad Made Junior An Adorable Star Wars Luke-on-Tauntaun Costume

Ohio Mum Created A Super Adorable E.T. Halloween Costume For Son

When you are younger, you dressed up in the craziest Halloween costume but now that you are all grown up and have your own kid (or kids), it is time think about junior’s getup so he or she can go trick-or-treat in style. If are really thinking about it, here’s a brilliant idea coming from Ohio-based crochet enthusiast Stephanie Pokorny. She has made an stunning E.T. costume for her son, Jack. The fact that Jack is too young to know who the heck E.T. is doesn’t stop Stephanie from freehanding the suit without a pattern or whatsoever. Continue reading Ohio Mum Created A Super Adorable E.T.
