For The Ladies (And Saucy Dudes Like Me): Company Introducing Line Of Latex Star Trek Inspired Costumes
This is a line of Star Trek inspired latex outfits to be introduced by Poison Candy Latex at the upcoming Montreal Comic Con. Good start, but you should consider making some of the guy’s suits too you know? God, I can just imagine my body tingling in a tight, shiny, mustard-colored Worf bodysuit. What do you wear under these things anyway — just plain underwear? A thong? Because I’m thinking of wearing a strap-on dildo backwards and pretending I’m a REAL two-peen space alien! “You used that joke a couple weeks ago.” AND YOU’RE GOING TO LEARN TO APPRECIATE IT.
Hit the jump for a closeup of each of the models and two of the redhead with her plastic space-titties on display.

The world of green tech presented us with some neat tricks and eco-treats this week from this plan to 3D print new shells for homeless hermit crabs to this handy LeafSnap app that helps you identify all different kinds of fall foliage to an energy-efficient UFO hotel room, which recently “landed” in the forests of Sweden. Speaking of spaceships, we also spotted this Star Trek Enterprise feeding system for babies (you’re never too young to live long and prosper) as well as plans for a massive nuclear-powered airport/airplane that could fly as many as 3,000 passengers through the sky, and Philips showed off its eerie and futuristic bacteria-powered lamps. In honor of All Hallow’s Eve, we rounded up the top six creepiest buildings of all time as well as six spooky churches made of bones. And just in case you missed the craziest Halloween story of the week, check these photos of a trio of ghastly zombies bursting out of the world’s largest pumpkin’s hell, er, shell.
On the green transportation front, we took the Honda CR-V hybrid for a spin and came across news that Tesla will reintroduce its sexy roadster in 2014. We also saw that GM is working on cars that could drop drivers off at their destinations and even park themselves, and the auto giant impressed us even further by joining Ford and Chrysler, who are working closely with engineering students from the University of Michigan Solar Car Team to create viable solar-powered cars for the future. But if you can’t wait that long, this Solarship is a blimp-like solar-powered airship that actually exists today.
In tech news, Facebook announced that they’ll be building a fancy new server farm in the Arctic. And speaking of cold weather, we also spotted where this clever Umbrella coat that has a handy umbrella instead of a hood – perfect for rainy fall days. A new study showing that TV is officially harmful to children under two confirmed some of our suspicions and we also saw news of a judge who ruled that cell phone warnings be blocked in San Francisco.
If you’re planning on dressing up for Halloween, don’t forget to enter our Green Halloween costume contest (or your kids in our Inhabitots costume contest) for some frightfully fabulous prizes. If you need some inspiration, we’ve got a slew of techie costume ideas you could cobble together from things you already own like this delightful iPhone getup or this homemade robot outfit.
The man glassed the road, watching the long procession slump south across the valley, armed and ragged like a band of crusaders for some dark creed. The rain caught them earlier, somewhere further north, and now they were wet to the bone, all of them, their eyes all downcast save a pair who looked like the guards, janissaries still young and with enough energy to lift their heads to watch the tree-line and all the darkness that lay beyond it.
The years had brought many swart beliefs to the land and the man had seen blood cults and bridge trolls, men driven mad with hunger and terror and loss. But this group was different. Each wore something that was once brightly colored but now ratted to the color of the ground and the slate sky. One man wore a scarf, once red, another wore a shiny green hat gone the color of oil on pavement.
This group had their own queens, two women, thin and frail as birds, slumped on car seats attached to a metal litter and carried by a team of slaves, four on each side. The women wore on their heads some sort of stuffed regalia – one woman, who looked asleep or dead, wore a red bird with wary eyes and the other wore something porcine in appearance, with a dull grin. The green pig covered the woman’s body as well and her arms stuck out like straws. Some of the stuffing had left it and it had been hastily taped shut but now the pig was deflated, like a Jack o’lantern left too long in the cool night. A yellow crown, carefully washed to the point of bleaching, lay perched on the pig’s lopsided head.
What these headdresses meant the man did not know, and how these two women so bedecked assuaged this band’s fear was also a mystery. The land threw up strange prophets these days and one man’s sunken-eyed woman was another man’s celestial bride. The band clattered on, the litter groaning and their worn shoes flapping on the broken pavement like the slap of a branch on an abandoned barn. The man lay back, waiting for their passage, hoping none of them saw him high in the brush. They did not, and soon he was alone again, the sound of the rain gathering around him and an afterimage flare of the red bird (when was the last time he saw a live bird? Ten years? Twenty? Time was impossible here) still maddening him in the dead dark.
One of the things I love about Comic-Con is the costumes. Ranging from the hastily-slapped-together to the very professional-looking, the costumes make the convention colorful and interesting. It takes a level of commitment to walk around in full regalia (particularly if you have a bulky Ghostbusters pack or a sweat-inducing Yoshi costume) in the packed-to-the-gills exhibit hall. But what I love the most is that the people in costumes are still fans. Two Astro City characters attended the Spotlight on Kurt Busiek panel. I heard an out-of-character Clone Trooper ooh-ing and ahh-ing about an exhibit. And in the photo above, you see Harry Potter asking Bizarro to pose for a snapshot,
I can’t even begin to list all of the various costumes. DK Publishing decided to have some fun with a Comic-Con Scavenger Hunt which includes such things as “Girl with a tail” and “Costume most likely to cause fainting.” (Note to attendees: stop by their booth, #2913G, to pick up a Scavenger Hunt card and tweet pics of your found items!)
Today, although I started off the day with a very full schedule of panels, I ended up skipping a lot of them. For one, the line for the TRON: Legacy sneak peek apparently started yesterday, so Dave Banks and I both gave up on that pretty early on. Instead, I got to hear Jeff Smith talk about upcoming Bone stories, his recent project Rasl about an interdimensional art thief, and give a reading from the upcoming Tall Tales. Then the Kurt Busiek panel, where he received an unexpected Inkpot Award, and then talked about Astro City with artist Brent Anderson and comics guru Scott McCloud. He announced that he’s just signed a movie deal for Astro City, which is pretty cool news since he’ll get first crack at the script. My last panel of the day was about Twisting Genres, and features various genre-bending authors as Scott Westerfeld (Leviathan), China Mieville (Kraken), and Justin Cronin (The Passage).
The rest of the time I spent wandering around the exhibit hall, collecting ideas for more cool things I’ll write about later, and scarfing down an overpriced salad for lunch at 3 o’clock because I’d been running around too much before then. Tomorrow is my Family Day: I’m taking the wife and kids, so we’ll see how long everyone lasts. I’m very excited about getting to introduce my six-year-old to the authors and artists behind some of her favorite comics, but we’ll see if she gets totally overwhelmed with it all.
