We can’t stop staring at the moving mouth tentacles on this incredibly awesome and rather disturbing animatronic Zoidberg costume. It was created by effects artist Frank Ippolito in collaboration with Tested and debuted at WonderCon 2014.
In addition to the nightmarish remote-controlled animatronic tentacles, the costume features foam-latex feet and claws that clickety-click just like they do on Futurama. Ippolito probably even recreated Zoidberg’s unforgettable odor. Let’s just hope they didn’t create an alternate costume depicting the Decapodian doctor out of his shell.
Watch as 28-year-old street performer Joslyn Paige gives a group of kids in Ann Arbor, MI an unforgettable thrill by showing off his awesome homemade Transformer costume. Paige spent a few months and between $700-$800 to making his suit, which transforms from bipedal robot into a truck that actually drives around.
Paige told the Detroit Free Press that he plans to spend the summer performing in Ann Arbor, so if you happen to be nearby, keep an eye out for this awesome Human Transformer!

"KitRex began as a homework assignment where I was asked to research a manufacturing process and demonstrate it in a unique way. I decided to research Industrial Origami, and over the course of 50 hours I designed, cut, and built a wearable 15-ft long velociraptor out of cardboard. I took him to a costume ball, and when I tromped into the room, literally everyone stopped to stare. He was the star of the evening, and everyone wanted one. I knew I had to do something."
Lisa then started (and successfully funded) a KitRex Kickstarter project to help her mass-produce an adorable 3-foot-long KitRex (since most people don’t have the space for a 15-ft paper dino). After months of prototyping and testing with kids between 8 - 12 years old, the final KitRex was born as a bristol board model that’s easily flat-packed and shipped anywhere (But you have to add your own googly eyes). A few lucky Kickstarter contributors were rewarded with giant 15-foot KitRexes of their very own.
Lisa isn’t quite ready to ship the KitRex, but for the time being you can click here to download a free pattern that fits on a standard 8x10 sheet of paper. It’ll be like playing with a dino hatchling.
Artist and entrepreneur Melissa Ng of Lumecluster designed and created these two beautiful 3D-printed masks for her Dreamer/Nightmare Mask Series. Although they appear quite delicate, the masks are made of a strong, flexible white material that makes them suitable to be worn. However they make striking display pieces as well.
Both designs are currently available as 3D-printed works through the Shapeways.

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.
