It’s easy to presume that ferocious creatures like the Krampus and Perchta wouldn’t have time for romance, what with the seemingly endless supply of naughty children out there in need of tormenting and devouring.
But this awesome photo, taken by Redditor Kos_Kun during their morning commute on the subway in Vienna, Austria, appears to prove otherwise. Even folkloric beasts enjoy a tender nuzzle now and then.
We can’t celebrate the return of Movember without mentioning Hamilton the Hipster Cat and his awesome white mustache (previously featured here). But instead of sharing a photo of Hamilton himself, we wanted to share this extraordinary image of Jeff dressed up as Hamilton during the week of staff costumes leading up to Halloween at the Archie McPhee store. The resemblance is truly uncanny.
Last year we posted about Josh Sundquist’s awesome Leg Lamp costume based on the “major award” from the 1983 movie A Christmas Story. For Halloween this year the rapper, motivational speaker, math nerd, and Paralympic champion has outdone himself with an outstanding flamingo costume.
We love the concept, execution, and that amazing hot pink bodysuit. And we hope that Josh doesn’t spend so much time upside-down on Halloween that he misses out on all the candy and ends up with a head rush instead. Candy beats a head rush every time.
Brace yourselves for some serious serpentine cuteness. Shannon Hammer sculpted a teeny-tiny hat and mustache for her pet Hognose snakes, Sir Snowball and Sir Sledge. Then she made this adorable video set to Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” It’s “Puttin’ on the Hiss!”
And just in case you’re wondering, because we sure were, Shannon’s dapper reptilian friends we able to wear their miniature accessories thanks to tiny dabs of peanut butter.
When our friend Linda Lombardi got her pug, Lilly, to pose in pug slippers, she took what ended up being one of the most stolen pictures on the internet. Well, once she got ahold of our new Pug Mask, she couldn’t stop herself from recreating it. As you can clearly see from the bottom picture, both Rose and Lilly seem very accepting of their new pug/human hybrid owner.
"Soon the hunt will begin."
We’re no strangers to great cosplay here at the Geyser of Awesome and this incredible Female Predator has got to be one of the best we’ve seen yet. It’s all the work of Finnish cosplayer Noora Nevalainen, who, with the exception of the leggings, made this entire jaw-droppingly awesome costume by hand:
"I made the mask from upholstery foam, liquid latex and acrylic paints. Most of the leather parts are made by my dear dad, all leather is real second hand leather. Animal skull is a fox skull I found from a forest, and collar bones are ordinary chicken bones."
Noora won first place for her fearsome costume at Ropecon XX, Finland’s massive annual role-playing convention.

Unexpected cake or donuts are great, but nothing breaks up a boring day at the office quite like being chased by a ferocious velociraptor. This video clip from Japanese TV shows an unsuspecting office worker who just happened to be walking down the hall when he was pranked by a man wearing an awesome animatronic dinosaur costume. It must be stressful enough worrying about Kaiju attacks, let alone savage dinosaurs in the workplace.
And then it happened again. Click here to watch the second video.
