Here’s yet another awesome thing about Japan: Pigeon Mask Parties.
Whether they’re made of feathers or latex, hanging out in the park or at a bar, it’s clear that pigeons love to flock. Did you know that a group of pigeons is called a loft? That means you could also call these gatherings Loft Parties. It sounds like Pigeon Mask code.
These are just some of our favourites. Head over to RocketNews24 to view them all.
Happy New Year! It’s the year of the horse on Geyser of Awesome!
We recently experienced first hand how our Squirrel Mask instantly transforms a party from a fun gathering into a wonderfully surreal experience.
It turns out that almost everyone has an inner squirrel that they’re eager to let out. Now we understand that there should always be at least one latex animal mask on hand in order to enable a party to achieve its potential awesomeness.
For an ongoing series of portraits entitled Just the Two of Us, Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler visited the homes of Austrian cosplayers and photographed them wearing their awesome costumes against the backdrop of their personal homes.
Klaus describes his project:
"Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for awhile? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else.
For this photo series I visited owners of elaborate costumes in their own homes. As a matter of fact, ’Just the Two of Us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.
The homes of these cosplayers vary from photo to photo as much as their costumes. The juxtaposition of fantastic costumes and (relatively) ordinary domestic settings is mysterious and wonderful. We were especially delighted to discover one of his subjects wearing our Magical Unicorn Mask.
At Archie McPhee headquarters we’re currently having the floors redone with cork. It’s a pretty exciting development for the people who walk on those floors all the time, but the new flooring isn’t actually the most awesome part of this project.
What’s really awesome is that members of the Floor Coverings International crew working on this job have been spotted wearing Horse Head Masks and Magical Unicorn Masks. They’re a skilled and safety-conscious bunch of guys, so we aren’t going to claim that they’ve been wearing the masks the whole time, but they also clearly know how to win our hearts and make themselves stand out from the competition.
