The World's Only School For Mascots

(YouTube Link)

Performing as a mascot is a really hard job, which involves a lot of physical acting, endurance and the agility needed to stay on your feet when you can barely see where you're going.

The Japanese mascot school featured in this video take the art of costume character acting very seriously, and their rigorous program is not for cream puffs covered in peach fuzz. 

Only the strongest mascots will survive...

World's First Solo Driving Dog

(YouTube Link)

The New Zealand SPCA has a creative way of handling the pet adoption situation- they teach dogs how to drive so people can see how smart they are and adopt them.

The dog featured in this video is named Porter, and he's the first New Zealand SPCA Driving Dog to drive solo.

It's going to be a long time before these furry little buggers are allowed to hit the road alongside humans, and let's hope nobody teaches dogs how to text or we're really heading to the danger zone!

Towers Of Balancing Bread

Photographer Nacho Alegre, along with graphic designers Ana Dominguez and Omar Sosa, came up with a bright idea for photographing bread- stack the loaves into leaning towers and capture the crusty balancing act for Apartamento magazine.

Somewhere a bakery window designer will be inspired by these layouts, and the balance of bread will be restored...

University Of Chicago Got A Package Addressed To Indiana Jones

When a package arrived at the University of Chicago addressed to Henry Walton Jones, Jr. (aka Indiana Jones), eyebrows were raised.

When they opened the package and found a bunch of stuff directly related to Indiana Jones movie mythology inside a manila envelope mystery began.

Here's more on the mystery package:

Inside the manila envelope secured with string, school employees found a treasure of meticulously executed Jones lore brought to life, including a journal penned by Abner Ravenswood -- Indy's academic mentor and father of his Raiderslove interest, Marion Ravenswood.

"The book itself is a bit dusty, and the cover is teal fabric with a red velvet spine, with weathered inserts and many postcards/pictures of Marion Ravenwood (and some cool old replica money) included,"

The university has thrown it out to the Internet, in hopes of finding out just who is responsible for this extraordinary stunt. 

"If you’re an applicant and sent this to us: Why? How? Did you make it? Why so awesome? ... If you are an Indiana Jones enthusiast and have any idea who may have sent this to us or who made it, let us know that, too.... Any hints, ideas, thoughts, or explanations are appreciated," the school writes.

Anyone with any pertinent knowledge is prompted to forward what they know to a special email account set up in honor of the mysterious package: indianajonesjournal@uchicago.edu.

Transformers Costume With Working Flamethrower

Dressing up like your favorite Transformer is one thing, but arming your costume with a working flamethrower means you're taking the robot cosplay thing to the limit.

This custom made Bumblebee costume was built  by Travis Culling, features working LED lights and headlights in addition to the flamethrower, and is currently for sale on Etsy.

It may look cool to spout flames out of your arm for photo ops, but what happens if your (mostly wooden) costume catches on fire?

Secret World Of Arrietty Cosplay

Photo: MoratayaPhoto/Flickr

Studio Ghibli's animated feature The Secret World Of Arrietty delighted both kids and adults alike with a story about four inch tall people trying to survive in a big person's world, and cosplayers have finally started looking to the film for costume inspiration.

Here's a cosplayer named Sam- she's got the look and all the right accessories for playing Arrietty, but what really sells the tiny person factor is the giant Colocasia leaf she's carrying around with her, it makes her look so small!

Intricate Wood Carvings That Look Like Soft Fabric

You wouldn't want to wear these undies, or wipe your face with that towel, because you'd end up with a bunch of splinters in the worst possible places.

Taiwanese sculptor Mary Leu carved up this set of undergarments with such fine detail that your eye is tricked into believing they're actually made of dingy fabric instead of wood. 

Here's more:

Transforming mundane laundry—such as socks, towels and underwear—into fascinating works of art, one can actually see the miniscule weaves of fabric imprinted on these wood-carved creations upon closer inspection. 

Each piece is sculpted out of a single piece of boxwood and may take up to a year to complete.

This Chair's Got Guts

This vinyl chair with disgusting resin guts sculpture was crafted by Chinese artist Cao Hui, who clearly isn't a fan of comfy seating. 

Why Cao gutted a chair:

"In order to deceive others, we explain with theory after theory, but it all ends in laughter and sometimes we even amuse ourselves before god laughs."
