I Would Run Away From This Demogorgon, Costume Or Not

There are many talented costume makers out there. Some costumes impress because of the goofy factor. Some creations impress because realism and then some impresses they are realistically terrifying, like this one created by prop maker Carl Leck. Leck’s creation, if you are unfamiliar, is the creature Demogorgon from Netflix’s original series Stranger Things. If you saw it in the series, you will know how horrifying this monster is.

Spaceship Cat Beds Will Make Your Feline Friend Feels Like A Space Cat

If you are not an Asian, you probably will not know a Hong Kong sci-fi drama called My Lover from the Planet Meow (2016, TVB). We shan’t dig into the drama’s premise. All you need to know is, in the show, cats return to another planet after they die. Quirky. So cats are pretty much aliens. Whether or not it is true is not important, but I know MYZOO Spaceship Cat Beds will certainly make your feline friend feels right at home, if the fictional is not fictional. Anyways, MYZOO Spaceship Cat Beds are unique cat rest quarters that mimic the look and feel of a, well, spaceship.

Someone Actually Created Bowling Balls That Look Like Cut-off Heads

This one was from many years ago (really, it’s donkey years in Internet’s time), but since Halloween is around the corner, we thought we should bring this up. What you see here are Bowlingheads. They are bowling balls with creepy graphics that make each ball looks like a decapitated head. From what we heard, it was conceived Hamburg-based advertising agency janniki for 13th Street and meticulously realized on by famous spray gun artist Oliver Paass using regular bowling balls as the canvases. The product itself is pretty self-explanatory. It had to because, details are scarce beyond a couple of sentences from janniki on Behance, Vimeo and the agency’s website.

Designer Built An Electric skateboard That His Cat Can Control

Usually, cats will be scare shit when you push them along a skateboard, let alone leaving a cat on a board that propels itself, but not in the case of designer, photographer and inventor, Kim Pimmel’s feline friend. In this latest “pet projects” experiment, he built an electric skateboard for his kitty friend. And mind you, it is not a remotely controlled board. That would be far too mundane. This creation of his is an electric skateboard that is moved by the cat’s own accord. Continue reading Designer Built An Electric skateboard That His Cat Can Control

Teenage Engineering Takes Synthesizer To Next Level With OP-Z

Three years in the making, Teenage Engineering’s newest multimedia synthesizer and sequencer, OP-Z, is finally ready. A follow up to the Swedish company’s first portable all-in-one OP-1 released six years ago, OP-Z is the first stand-alone 16-track sequencer that lets you pull off synchronized live composition of music, visuals, and lights, and doing so while remaining ultra portable.

Praises For Shuri And Ms. Marvel Kid’s Costumes And Wasp’s Sexual Costume

Originally, the idea of dressing up in costumes for Halloween is to scare away supernatural or folkloric beings, but it has since evolved to, well, anything goes. As far as children goes, it is about cuteness and the ability to grab sweet treats. Add a dash of today’s need for political correctness, you have the Internet praising children’s costumes inspired by two super heroines of color: Kamala Khan, the Marvel’s first Muslim character whose alter ego is Ms. Marvel (whose superpower is “polymorph”) and the genius Shuri from Black Panther movie.

Shooting From A Mile Away A Dream? Well, Not At This Shooting Range

You heard of the infamous mile high club, but I bet you never heard of a less decadent but equally exciting “One-Mile Club.” Unlike mile high club, this “One-Mile Club” is nothing sensual or sexual, well, that’s unless shooting firearms gives the same high as an orgasm. One thing for sure, it certainly don’t happen up in the sky; it happens at the range. A shooting range to be precise. Located at the Rocky Mountain region of Wyoming, U.S.A. is the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience that offers an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shoot at targets that are over a mile away.

You Can Now Dress Up As Han Solo In Carbonite Thanks To This Inflatable

I can’t believe no one dresses up as Han Solo… in Carbonite for Comic-Con and Halloween. Or maybe there were? I can’t say for sure. Anywho, in case you are a Star Wars fan and wanted to dress up as a different kind of Solo (a less than suave Solo, that is), then you may want to give the Inflatable Han Solo Carbonite Costume a thought. It works like the inflatable dinosaurs, but this particular item from Rubie’s Costume Company is, obviously, not a dino.
