  • This is posted in food network magazine and looks so simple and easy to make. They recommend serving with spinach dip but I’m thinking it’ll be good with hummus. While they show it cut out as little Christmas trees, I can see it in pumpkins for Halloween or clovers for St. Pat’s Day – just about any holiday appetizer. I’ll have to guess at the serving size as it’s not listed

  • Tony Stark may not have had much use for cardboard when he was building suit after suit of super shiny Iron Man armor, but Tony would definitely admire the craftsmanship and skill shown by Kai-Xiang Xhong when he built this wearable cardboard Iron Man armor.

    The included video finds Kai-Xiang showing off a bunch of his other models, including an Alien xenomorph made out of straws and a giant cardboard T-Rex skull that is really freakin’ cool!

    Kai-Xiang decided to keep the suit natural cardboard color ’cause that’s his style, and it looks like the feet were formed around a pair of …read more

    The Simpsons, and all the cartoony folks that populate the imaginary city of Springfield, may look cute and colorful on the small screen, but in real life they’d look downright freaky!

    This depiction of Marge Simpson in real life called “Flower Marge” was created by photographer Alexander Khokhlov, with the help of makeup artist Veronica Ershova and stylist Mikhail Kravchenko.

    Marge’s hair gets its textural look from the hundreds of chrysanthemums which were glued to the frame that forms her signature hairstyle, and when the model closes her eyes the transformation into cartoon superstar is complete.

    Robots can build cars, take a spin on Mars and generally do some pretty cool stuff, but are we already running out of ideas for uses?

    You might assume that if you saw this gyrating robot dancer doing her hypnotic hip sway for them and didn’t know the back story, but this scary robo-gal is an art installation created strictly for entertainment purposes by Jordan Wolfson in conjunction with special effects studio Spectral Motion, and not necessarily the next step in robotic evolution.

    So maybe she isn’t the future of robo-tech, but it looks like Chuck E. …read more

    Coulrophobes had better steer clear of Staten Island for a while, until the local authorities take care of a certain creepy clown they’ve got lurking around the city streets.

    He has become a bit of a local legend in the few short weeks he’s been clowning around the streets of S.I., because people claim he’s an elusive clown, appearing with a wave then disappearing back into the city before most of them can snap a pic.

    Is this the same clown faced freak that has been haunting Northampton, England, or …read more

  • Mica Bethea attended MegaCon in Orlando this past weekend cosplaying as Tyrion Lanister from Game of Thrones in this awesomely clever getup. He turned his wheelchair into an Iron Throne, and put boots on his knees, while his lower legs were hidden underneath. I hope he entered the costume contest! See more pictures at Bethea’s Instagram gallery. -via Geeks Are Sexy

    People made some bad style choices in the 1970s- leisure suits, Earth shoes, zippered and belted jumpsuits, and lemon yellow polyester slacks all come to mind as fairly common fashions that were fairly hideous.

    But whether you escaped the decade fashionably unscathed, or you have a hideous Disco phase among the skeletons in your closet, chances are bad 70s style affected your look in one way- a bad hairstyle. We’ve all had our share of bad hair, but guys really got the short end of the stick during the 70s when it came to …read more

    Cosplayers are creating the most amazingly realistic costumes these days- with 3D printed accessories, handmade replica weapons that look better than the animated versions, and intricate costumes created with foam and friendly plastics that combine sculpting and sewing in an amazing ode to their favorite characters.

    But what if you want to have some cosplay fun but lack the sculpting/sewing skills and don’t feel like leaving the house?

    You do like Thai cosplayer Anucha “Cha” Saengchart and create some Lowcost Cosplay. You can tell Cha loves three things- dressing up, …read more
