A Stranger Things Christmas

Have you ever wondered what a Stranger Things / Peanuts crossover would look like? Well here you go!

I kind of love how Snoopy is the demogorgon, and poor Barb still can't get a break...

Minions Goggles Project

My friends and I went to a New York Comic Con party dressed as Gru and his Minions! It's a quick and silly costume and I was tasked with making the goggles so here's how I did it.

I made a template out of paper to fit my face and transferred it to 5mm craft foam. Here are the dimensions. If you get a regular piece of 9x12 foam, you can make 3 pairs of goggles from it because each eyepiece is 8x2. I don't know how long the angled side is but if you measure everything else, that won't matter. You obviously need to cut 2 of these out for both your eyes.

Logan Trailer

A day after the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer dropped, we were gifted with another surprise trailer. This time it's for Logan, the third and final solo Wolverine movie and reportedly the last time Hugh Jackman will train his brains out for the role. Now the Wolverine series has not been good. X-Men Origins: Wolverine was utterly forgettable, and The Wolverine, while leaps and bounds better than the first, didn't have a high bar to get over and still ended up being a hot mess. But holy crap, this trailer looks great!

The movie takes place in 2024 and the aging Logan's healing factor isn't what it used to be. Much like my metabolism... ;)

It wasn't enough that we got a teaser poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 dropped by director James Gunn himself. But Marvel also released the first teaser for the movie too!

And now let's take a quick look at this short teaser trailer!

Stranger Things Wall Cosplay

Every year before New York Comic Con, I tell myself it's the last time I'm going. Then when it's all over, I do a 180 and can't wait until next year. Such is the case right now because I simply had a blast at NYCC this year! Thanks in part to this ridiculously simple cosplay I did of the Stranger Things alphabet wall.

I did not expect the overwhelming positive response I got for this cosplay. I'm pretty sure I'm not the first to come up with this idea, and I'm definitely sure I'm not the last as a ton of people have told me they're using this idea for a Halloween costume. So if you want to do the same, here's the stuff I used:

Voltron Legendary Defender Season 2 Trailer

First off, let me just say I love the original Voltron. It begat my love for robots that combine into bigger robots. So when Voltron Legendary Defender was announced, I was both excited and apprehensive at the thought of a reboot. But when the show was released to Netflix back in June, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. In fact the only qualms I have are that the original theme song isn't used, and that it ends on a cliffhanger. Which makes this teaser trailer for Season 2 all the more important to resolve that cliffhanger!

The trailer ominously teases the possible demise of Black Lion pilot and team leader Shiro, and Keith assuming leadership if that happens. Kind of like how it was in the original series! I see what you did there...

Sadly there's no definitive release date as the trailer just ends with "Coming Soon." Here's hoping that's sooner rather than later.
