There's Something Strange About These Cops

Cops used to be content with sporting normal sized legs, but these days they need all the height they can get to see crimes happening across town.

But can they actually run with those ridiculously long legs? Maybe the whole thing is just one big acid flashback triggered by watching Yellow Submarine too many times...

Creepy Legend Of Zelda Dead Hand Snowman

Video game themed snowmen don't come much more obscure, or creepy looking, than this thing.

It's based on the Dead Hand mini boss from the Legend of Zelda game The Ocarina of Time, and somehow he looks better when constructed out of hi-rez snow particles. Remember when video game graphics were that bad?

The Most Amazing Acts Of Cosplay From 2012

Cosplayers really stepped up their game in 2012, and showed us lots of great examples of why they take pride in their costume arts.

Maybe the threat of a Mayan apocalypse filled them with a sense of urgency, or maybe they've been saving up all their top looks for this year, but whatever the reason here's hoping we see lots more amazing costumes in 2013!

Santa Left A Strange Looking Present Under The Tree

Babies are too young to truly appreciate the presents waiting for them under the tree on Christmas morning, but when your gift is a horse headed dog (pony?) you can't help but develop a few mental scars that'll stick with you for the rest of your life!

I wonder how many treats it took to convince the dog to wear the horse head mask?

Kid Plays The Washing Machine Like A Drum

(YouTube Link)

The young man in this video must spend a lot of time doing the laundry, either that or his bongos are in the repair shop.

He drums out a beat on the washing machine like a total boss, while his parents film the whole thing so they don't have to do the laundry. Win-win!

Trained Mice Performing Amazing Tricks

 

(YouTube Link)

(YouTube Link)

We all know mice are clever enough to sneak their way into our houses and eat our food, but their ability to learn tricks is totally underrated.

Mouse Agility knows what mice are truly capable of, and they've been training mice to do things like pay for a treat, play Connect Four or slam dunk a tiny basketball since the 90s.

If mice paid for all the food they took people probably wouldn't hate having them in their homes.

Amazingly Detailed Eggshell Sculptures

Chinese artist Wen Fuliang doesn't see eggshells as trash, he sees them as a sculptural medium. His incredible sculpting skills began when he was laid off from his job as a woodcarver, and now he sees eggs as more than just an ingredient in Fu Yung. 

Here's more on these delicate works of art:

Using chicken, goose and duck eggs, he empties the content of the eggs with a syringe, before using a fine diamond bit on an electric rotary tool to delicately carve the designs on the intricate shells. 

The process, according to The Daily Mail, is “incredibly time-consuming”, and requires Fuliang to gently secure the eggshell in one hand, and skillfully use the rotary tool in the other.

Luminous Cyberpunk Costume

Cutting through the competition and lighting up the night has never looked so good! Costumer Melissa Li created two awe inspiring cyberpunk costumes which took years to develop and months to construct.

Here's a bit on the top look, called 2.0:

The assembly is made from over 60 parts designed in Solidworks and sewn/cut/glued/laser-cut/heat-formed using various techniques.

The costume includes color changing LEDs on the spine and front that are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller and onboard RGB controllers (respectively), and is powered by 16 AA batteries, 1 LiPo rechargeable battery, two 2032 coin cells, and one 9-volt battery. In total there's more than 70 LED's on the entire costume and over 60 parts.

And here's a bit on the bottom look, the original 1.0:

Design was based on actual spinal transverse sections and lit with ~40 LED's. Design and assembly of smaller accessory pieces for shoulders, chest, and arm were found pieces or designed in Solidworks. In total, ~46 pieces put together over a period of ~2 months.

Movie Monster High School Yearbook

Movie Monster high school has one massive claim to fame- nobody has been bullied on campus in over fifty years!

And even though Ghostface and Leatherface are mere humans, their ghastly disguises keep them under the monster radar, and their bloodlust is seen as admirable by the student body.

DeviantARTist thegreck heads up the yearbook committee to capture monsters in their natural state, and he did a pretty good job despite the fact that King Kong was breathing down his neck the entire time.

Deconstructed Portraits By Henrietta Harris

Representational portraits are so passé, but these deconstructed portraits by Henrietta Harris are about to blow up like ACME dynamite!

The premise is simple- take a portrait, turn part of the face into smoky wisps and there you have it-deconstructed portraits at their finest.

But don't be fooled into thinking this is an easy task, because it takes a lot of skill and practice to make a portrait with smeared facial features look so good.

Wait, You Forgot One Last Present!

If you wrap up a new family pet and put them under the Christmas tree don't be surprised if they get tired of waiting and unwrap themselves.

Make sure you include a gift receipt with each pet you give as a present, because some critter gifts lose their new pet smell in transport and may be too stinky to keep!

What's Wrong With This Picture?

There's something not quite right about a panda without black rings around their eyes.

They immediately lose all cute and cuddly factors, and those beady little eyes which should be swimming in ebony pools now appear to be staring into your very soul.

Pray the pandas retain their black eye makeup, or they may develop a taste for human!

Sometimes when humans migrate, to an island for instance, they bring animals with them that aren't native to the destination, and the balance of nature becomes severely out of whack.

Visit the seven islands featured and you'll find a whole lot of one kind of animal, from the cats of Tashirojima, Japan to Kaua'i, the chicken island of Hawaii. It's an extremely photogenic crime against nature!

A Case Of The Holiday Kermits

Every office should have it's own Kermit, because he's both a model employee and an entertaining guy to work with.

However, if your office's Kermit starts looking like a disheveled slob, as is the case in the photo above, then notify a manager immediately and don't let him have any change for the vending machines!

Virgil knows how to get an all-ages party started- with a party keg full of his famous root beer! It's hardly the size of a keg by frat house standards, but a gallon and a half of root beer is definitely enough to get the kids all fired up and ready to burn some Barbie dolls.

Masks From The "Wilde Jagd"

These horrifying masks aren't from Halloween, they're actually worn as part of a Christmas festivity called Wilde Jagd which is celebrated in parts of Europe.

Here's more on this fascinating festival:

These festivities originate through the Perchtenlaufen custom, a period when the fearsome witch Perchta, who envies happily married couples, roams the villages. Processions of horribly masked figures armed with sticks and clubs meet throughout the festivity to chase the witch away.
