This is a short video demonstration of Youtube user derepentignymarc’s wearable homemade ‘Bolt’ Transformer costume. It doesn’t actually transform into anything, but the eyes and mouth parts move, the mask slides up and down automatically, and it has some light and smoke effects. Oh — and the arms can be moved via remote controlled. It really is pretty impressive. Way better than anything I could built. Hell, the last time I tried to build a Transformer I sliced my hand wide open on the top of a tuna can. It was BAD. Not only would it not stop bleeding, but if I pulled the two sides of skin apart you could see the tendons moving around in there if I bent my fingers. You light-headed yet? Cool, then I’ll make this easy for you: give me all your money and you won’t get hurt.

This is a small gallery (plus video) of the Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Fists Terminator Captain Tancred costume created by Daniel Høgh and Justina Šniukštaitė of Roses and Boltshells, their cosplay prop manufacturing business. The outfit is predominately foam, so the wearer is actually able to move around in it, which is a pretty important aspect of a costume. Nobody wants to have to be pushed around on a handcart. Except me, I love that shit. I saw a girl in her 20′s sitting Indian-style in a shopping cart and being pushed around the grocery store by her friend yesterday. I didn’t say anything, but I was judging them hard in my mind. Mostly because I was jealous I didn’t have anybody to push me around in a cart. I was all, DAMMIT, YOU’RE TOO OLD FOR THAT. God I wish I was her.
Hit the jump for several more shots and a video, but be sure to check out Roses and Boltshells’ Facebook page for a ton more, including the build.

Who Thinks Of This Stuff?: ‘Evil Dead’ Cabin Diorama Hat (Now With More BONUS Book Of The Dead Costume)
This is a little diorama of the cabin from ‘The Evil Dead’ constructed ON A HAT by Kiersten Essenpreis for her Halloween costume. You could see her pal Marc’s Publication of the Dead clothing (with opening cover) after the jump. Undoubtedly, she did an excellent task, it’s just not a really FUNCTIONAL hat. You know just what are though? Jimmy hats. Wrap those wieners up, children. “However–” Yes, also for in the butt.
Hit the jump for Ash and the beneficial Publication of the Dead clothing.

I want this. No — I NEED this. Could you imagine me chasing my nieces and nephews around wearing this thing, telling them I’m going to eat them? Me neither. I don’t chase, I lure. “Because you’re a creep?” WHAT — no! Because I’m LAZY. *trying to pick up beer off coffee table with feet*

I assume a good amount of you have already seen this, but for those of you who ONLY visit Geekologie for your news, well, you obviously have good heads on your shoulders. Unfortunately, your brains are probably f***ed. This is a video of a guy dressed up as Luxo Jr. the Pixar lamp for Halloween. He titled the video ‘best costume ever!’ which isn’t even remotely accurate considering I was a yellow peanut M&M one year. This is just a really, really clever costume. You can tell it’s not the best though because 1. you have to f***ing hop everywhere and 2. how are you supposed to see and, even more importantly, DRINK? “Who knows, maybe he put a vodka-soaked tampon in his ass.” LOLWUT?!?! I’m not the only one who does that?
Hit the jump for a short demonstration of the that would get old quick.
Incredible feats of green architecture reached for the sky this week as Inhabitat reported that the world’s first vertical forest skyscraper is rising in Milan and an outdoor cinema made entirely from refrigerators popped up in London. We also took a look inside a crazy mountain lodge that resembles a hill-like hobbit high-rise and we spotted a Finnish hotel that rents out glass-domed geodesic igloos for viewing the northern lights. We also launched a brand new video that takes an inside look at this year’s winning Solar Decathlon homes, we kicked off a contest where you can win one of 25 $ 600 home energy audits, and we learned that China’s coal-powered energy grid negates the green benefits of electric vehicles.
Speaking of green transportation, this week we caught a glimpse of several next-generation electric vehicle technologies as Nissan unveiled a ten minute electric vehicle charger and Chevrolet announced plans to produce a Spark mini EV. We also took Honda’s new Civic hybrid for a spin, and we learned that Tesla’s new Model S sedan will be powered by highly efficient Panasonic batteries. Meanwhile, Virgin Atlantic announced plans to cut its carbon footprint in half by fueling airplanes with waste gas and Germany announced that 100 percent of its trains will run on renewable energy by 2050.
In other news, techy fashion got a jolt of affordability as we spotted an economical LED jacket for night cyclists and runners, and we took a look at the story behind Steve Jobs’ iconic black turtlenecks. We also got into the Halloween spirit by bringing you an adorable Star Wars AT-AT costume for dogs, and we showcased a creepy set of “stained glass” windows made from x-rays. Finally, we shined the spotlight on India’s solar-powered water ATMs, and we brought you a can’t-miss set of tips for recycling e-waste.
We’ve already seen a canine AT-AT costume before, but that one didn’t involve PAINTING AND GLUING THINGS to a dog. Oh man, remember on Hoth when Luke used the tow-cable from his snowspeeder to bring that one AT-AT down? Well this one’s gonna run away from home.
AT-AT Dog Costume [neatorama]
Thanks to Patrick J.M., who went to CanineCon last year and said there was kinda dogs dressed up like shit.
Spring is upon us and a young geek’s mind turns to thoughts of love. And what better way to win the heart of the guy (or girl) of your dreams than to dress up like Darth Vader in a completely authentic Sith Lord costume (saber not included). People will be able to sense your confidence along with your off-the-charts midichlorian count as you stride up to the bar and, in your deepest, smokiest voice, say to the bartender “I find your lack of MGD 64 disturbing.” You will be, as they say, unstoppable.
How do you win? Comment below explaining what drew you, personally, to the dark side. Was it the robots? The choke holds? The cookies? Comment only once and include your email in the proper field. If you don’t include an email I can’t contact you and then you’ll scream in anguish like Anakin falling into the lava. I’ll pick one winner at noon on Monday.
Thanks to HalloweenCostumes.com for the excellent prize.
