'What if the Earth's mightiest heroes were stationed in feudal Japan, rather than modern day New York?' isn't the title of an alternate universe comic book series, it's actually the concept behind Alex Mitchell's artistic re-imagining of The Avengers!
His revamps for the group run deep, with Sengoku era appropriate attire, weapons and powers based on Japanese mythology.
Personal fave- the Hulk, who uses paper seals to trap a monster named Kaibatsu inside himself, and uses a Buddhist rosary to control his emotions. Very cool!
The guy in this video is singlehandedly ruining Spider-Man's good name, acting less like a hero and more like a merry prankster!
Most of the citizens that encounter the slapstick Spidey seem appropriately amused by his antics, but he's definitely getting on the wrong side of the law, and that'll cost him if he ever thinks about starting his own superheroic organization.
If you've ever watched the hit TV drama Breaking Bad then you know that it has nothing in common with the scifi series Star Wars, but that hasn't stopped people from showing us what it would look like if BB and SW had a baby.
These images are ridiculous, hilarious pieces of eye candy that should be viewed, stowed away in your mental scrapbook then summarily eliminated, for the sake of future generations of film goers.
Oh, and a few images contain spoilers (crazy, huh?!) so don't look if you're trying to live a spoiler free lifestyle.
Reimaginings and crossovers involving popular characters and licenses are a dime a dozen, but when someone creates a piece as awesome as this X-Men starring in Star Wars poster by Rey Arzeno it must be shared.
This piece looks less like a movie poster and more like the cover of an awesome comic book series from the land of geek dreams, and the awesome use of color really makes it pop!
Zombie connoisseurs looking for the best wine to pair with their human flesh need look no further, thanks to the wisdom of Maynard James Keenan (Tool frontman/winemaker), and the experienced tongue of Damien Casten (wine distributor).
Maynard's take on the taste pairings:
Maynard James Keenan, who owns both Merkin Vineyards and Caduceus Cellars, what wine would go best with human face. Keenan recommends pinot noir for the cheeks, a big shiraz for the tongue, and beer for the nose and lips.
Damien Casten's tastes:
According to Casten, the gray matter is best paired with a chenin blanc from Saumur or a chardonnay from the Maconais in Burgundy.
There you have it undead folks, the next time you're looking for a bottle to drink with your heart-y dinner you'll know what tastes best on a tongue.
The clever costumer in these pics decided that two looks are better than one, so he built this awesome caged Hobbit being carried by a Ring Wraith costume that makes him look all tiny and hairy footed.
Now all he has to do is master David Blaine's levitation trick and his costume will go from amazing to out of this world!
A YouTuber named MorRokk didn't want to leave her dwarf caiman out of the Halloween fun, so she created a sweet suit of Iron Man inspired armor for the cute little chomper, so he could live out his superhero dreams.
Despite his heroic costume nobody gave this little guy any candy because they were afraid he'd bite their hand off.
Superheroes, especially the reptilian ones, live an extremely hard life...
Creative artist and wine lover Amella Fais Harnas has come up with a great reason for going through so many bottles of fermented grape goodness - she paints portraits in wine stains!
Amella's works are delightfully warm in color, and the softly bleeding edges add a nice organic feel to each piece, although the gallery must smell like a wino convention after the paintings have aged on the walls for a while.
Australian filmmaker Neil Harvey combined original footage and 3D animation with stock footage from the NASA archives to create ROBBIE- a spaced out short film about the robotic beings that help the humans at NASA explore the cosmos.
Here's more on Neil's process:
The film-making process involved downloading about 10 hours of footage from the NASA archives and compiling a list of shots which resonated with me at some level. I did this over about 2 or 3 months when I had the spare time. From there, I put these selected shots on an editing timeline and watched them back until characters and narratives began developing in my mind. That is when i met Robbie.
R.L. Stine's series Goosebumps has brought spooky thrills to young readers since 1992, and many (now) grown folks look back at reading the series, perhaps with a flashlight in hand under the covers, as a fond memory from childhood.
Take a nostalgiac look back at the unexpected twists and turns found in Stine's Goosebumps books, but if you haven't yet but are planning to read the books watch out - this list contains some major spoilers!
The owners of this house don't want to wait until Christmas to throw some lights up, so they came up with this awesome light show synced to the song "This Is Halloween" from the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack.
What a spooktacular way to light up the neighborhood- with candy and a show!
Photographer Noah Kalina braved the inherent fear of aging and took 4,514 portraits of himself over 12 years, then he put them all together in video form, adding a suitably eerie electronic track for aural effect.
Since this is the follow up to his previous 6 year record, I'm sure he'll keep checking in with a new video every six years until he literally drops dead while filming. See you in six Noah!
Industrious builder of wondrous contraptions Dan Rosenfeld channelled his love of video conferencing, and the Apple Macintosh commercial from 1984, into an awesome Big Video Head rig that would make the Wizard of Oz green with envy.
Here's more about the Big Head Project:
The rig is a head-mounted box with a 24-inch LCD monitor on the front that displays a larger-than-life version of Dan's face. Inside the box, Dan has a tiny camera trained on his face, a microphone, and a monitor connected to an external camera so he can see where he's going. To test gaze awareness, the rig is configured so that Dan is looking directly at you while talking to reduce the thousand-yard stare associated with teleconferencing.
