College Sports Fans Dressed in School Spirit Attire (Second Edition)

WIN_20170825_11_40_20_Pro

Here am I in my March of the Bearcats polo and Saint Vincent College basketball T-shirt.

As the school year begins so does the season of college sports. In particularly football. Though you’re bound to find plenty of students and alumni cheering in the stands on game day, many of these schools have fans far beyond that, especially if it’s a Division I university that makes loads of money from exploiting their student athletes. But now’s not the season to talk about that since it’s more suited for a March Madness conversation. Anyway, when it comes to posts to college and NFL, I kind of prefer doing the college ones. Mostly because you have way more than 32 Division I colleges across the country, many with a lot more interesting team names. Not to mention, a lot of the Division I college teams tend to be in uncharted territory for me. Yet, it’s not unusual for Americans to prefer their college teams over their pro teams. Mostly because the college teams are much closer to where they live, particularly in the South and in the heartland. And yes, many of the fans can be quite crazy, which is where I come in. Thus, for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of college sports fans. Most of them are from Division I, by the way.

  1. Apparently, the University of North Carolina is the No. 1 college for smurfs.

One of them even has blue hair. And both have a footprint on their shirts.

2. Seems like Boston College has a party school reputation.

What the hell are drunk Bert and Ernie doing here? Seriously, that doesn’t set a very good example to young children.

3. Seems like we have a colorful show of characters at Texas Tech.

One of them has a Minecraft head. One is all checks. While the others, let’s not get into that.

4. Speaking of Boise State, how about checking out these guys in their striped overalls?

And yes, they’re all in blue and orange from their hair to their toes. A couple even have fros.

5. Auburn is the place you can really be a Tiger.

Okay, it’s mostly face paint. But you get the idea. And yes, the fangs are fake.

6. At Ohio State, someone must be bucco for the Buckeyes.

Yet, the Buckeye guy on his head is a bit of the top. Also, what’s with the rose necklace. Oh, I get it.

7. For the Florida State Seminoles, you got two superheroes and a line of country western chorus girls.

You might remember the superheroes from last year. But the women with Seminole tops are a different story.

8. At Oklahoma State, this Viking’s helmet has its horns upside down.

That’s not to say he kind of resembles an Oompah Loompah. Also, note his friend with the spiky orange hair.

9. Apparently, the red men go for the Utes.

Okay, that’s a very racist depiction of Native Americans. And you want to know why they don’t like when colleges appropriate their culture into their athletics programs.

10. At North Carolina, basketball season is a time for blue hair.

Though their wigs are more or less made from Easter grass. Also, the basketball hats are hilarious.

11. There’s no bull about these cows from the University of Maryland.

Okay, they’re not technically cows since they certainly have no udders. Though you might want to steer clear of them for now.

12. Behold, the golden boy from USC.

Interesting he’s wearing a shiny gold speedo. Yet, to be fair, he doesn’t look quite bad. Yet, don’t tell that to the woman next to him.

13. You’d almost call this guy all pinned up for West Virginia University.

Note that he’s wearing coveralls over his jersey. Is supposed to be dressed as a mountaineer, miner, or what?

14. At the University of South Carolina, you’ll find a line of guys saluting their gamecocks.

Okay, it’s mostly body paint. But at least these guys didn’t paint their faces because that would be bad.

15. Even Santa is a huge fan of Ohio State.

However, he’s also with bald guy with a painted face and a guy with a nut necklace and weird hair. And yes, even Santa has some nuts on him.

16. With their hats, these Oregon Ducks fans are totally pumped.

One of them even has drinks on his hat and Hulk hands. And their school has a mascot resembling Donald Duck.

17. This guy really wants his Florida Gators to crush the Crimson Tide.

It’s on his hat by the way. Yes, I know it’s kind of crazy. But at least it’s creative.

18. At LSU, this man’s loyalty to his Tigers is never in question.

His way of supporting his Tigers is another story. Seriously, what’s with the body paint question mark?

19. As far as face paint is concerned, these faces have some very interesting patterns.

Indeed, these are Oregon Ducks fans. But one has a zigzag face. The other’s got checkers.

20. You might find this banana appealing if you come from Arizona State.

Yes, I know he looks pretty weird, especially with the sunglasses and banana costume. But he sure knows how to get attention.

21. You may think clowns and Stormtroopers would be at odds unless it’s the Arizona Wildcats.

One guy’s wearing a clown wig and suit. The other is a an Imperial Stormtrooper who probably won’t hit anything.

22. Speaking of the University of Arizona, seems like they might be on the Dark Side of the Force.

And the Dark Lord of the Sith has decided to go casual. Not to mention, paint his helmet red and blue.

23. Apparently, someone’s into Pirates of the Caribbean at Arizona State.

Wonder if he feels cool in his Jack Sparrow hat and wig. However, I don’t think it’s helping.

24. I believe we have a couple of tiger sharks at Auburn.

It’s a takeoff from Katie Perry’s Super Bowl performance. But these have stripes for the Auburn Tigers. Kind of ridiculous but fun.

25. This Baylor fan wanted his beard to match his outfit.

The beard is made from yarn to disguise his discontent for how his team’s doing. And to match his outfit.

26. You’d be scared out of your mind to find these guys at Boise State.

Think of their costumes as a mix between the Chippendales and Saw. Not sure what the two have to do with each other.

27. You’d almost think this Arizona Wildcat fan’s head is bursting with fireworks.

Though it’s mostly a foam mohawk with red, white, and blue stuff coming out of it. But yes, it’s utterly ridiculous.

28. This guy’s all red for his Crimson Tide.

You’d think he spent too much time in the hot sun. But it’s just body paint.

29. As skeletons, these Georgia Tech women are here to frighten you.

I hope these women are Mexicans. Because that’s in the style for the Day of the Dead. And Mexicans don’t like seeing that part of their culture appropriated, especially on Halloween.

30. At Brigham Young, the Hulk shows his support.

Or is it the Abominable Snowman? Such costume in blue gets me so mixed up.

31. At the University of Georgia body painting and clown wigs go hand in hand.

Well, they have red paint to spell out Georgia. But the clown wigs are mystery to me.

32. Apparently, you’ll find a blue Guy Fieri at Boise State.

And he’s holding up a hammer with flaming red hair. Not sure why.

33. At Oklahoma State, this cowboy supports his team in the most country way.

Well, to be fair, cowboys did pass through Oklahoma. But not in body paint and a foam hat.

34. This woman will go all out for her Crimson Tide.

Apparently, body paint is said to protect you from indecent exposure. Yet, the elephant certainly fits.

35. You’d almost think these Florida State Seminole fans were made for each other.

They paint themselves in dark red and gold and don’t have much on. Seriously, the woman is in a bra and undies.

36. This Sun Devils fan has impressive hair from Arizona State.

Seems to have the Arizona Sun Devils logo right on his hair. Wonder how he gets through a doorway.

37. Apparently, these two guys are a bit sheepish on the chest.

Well, their mascot is a ram. Yet, painting a sheep on your chest, really?

38. Looks like Boba Fett is a Gators fan.

He even has a cape and shoulder pads on. Hope he doesn’t get sucked in by a sarlacc any time soon.

39. Apparently, you’ll find a spotted horse and two glitter guys at a Seminole game.

Now that’s bound to distract people. The horse is especially freaky. Not sure why anyone would want to paint their bodies for their sports team.

40. Speaking of Florida State, this super fan is super pumped.

Sure she may be dressed as a superhero. But today she’s cheering her heroes in the stands.

41. These University of Georgia fans are all spiked up.

Well, spikes on the shoulder pads. And all have makeup on their faces. One looks like Jigsaw.

42. At Oklahoma University it’s all in the hats.

Of course, this is where the wind blows sweeping on the plains. So they better hold on to their hats.

43. You may not want to be with this masked mob at Gonzaga.

They’re definitely there for March Madness since Gonzaga got pretty far in the NCAA tournament. One of these has horns.

44. No one’s a match for this Iowa Hawkeyes clown.

Let’s hope this scary clown induces nightmares for the other team. Though I’m sure anyone who looks won’t be able to sleep after the game.

45. You can never wear enough traffic cones to support the Kentucky Wildcats.

Didn’t know you could fit that many cones on shoulder pads. Also, doesn’t look too happy.

46. You don’t need to paint your body if you’re a fan of LSU.

Sometimes an electric or safety razor will do. Though I don’t recommend anyone try it. Seriously, just don’t.

47. This LSU Tiger is really into the game on the field.

Doesn’t hurt that he’s wearing a gold and purple robe. Sunglasses and helmet aren’t too bad either.

48. Take a look at that LSU cheerleader.

Yes, I know it’s a guy who doesn’t look great in a cheerleader outfit. But he looks pretty hilarious.

49. At Marshall, you’ll often find a bison headed man in the stands.

After all, they’re known for the Thundering Herd in West Virginia. That and the movie We Are Marshall.

50. At the University of Miami, this guy’s part of the West End Zone Crue.

After all, he’s doing it for his Hurricanes. You know wearing the outlandish glasses and bling.

51. For this Hurricanes fan, it’s always about time.

Here he has an orange hoplite helmet with a green plume. Also has spikes on his shoulder pads.

52. This Transformer always goes for the Miami Hurricanes.

And I see he has a green and orange helmet with white shoulder pads. And no, he doesn’t turn into a car.

53. Apparently, Miami and Florida State fans can exist side by side.

Doesn’t hurt that both of them are dressed like Super Mario Brothers. Yet, I guess their princess is in another castle.

54. This guy goes full bat mask for his Michigan Wolverines.

He even has Michigan glasses and a megaphone with bumper stickers. Guess anything for the team.

55. Seems like if you want to support Michigan State, you got to have green hair.

You’d also want pairs of Spartan glasses, too. Yeah, weird right?

56. Even Gumby is a fan of Michigan State.

And here he is with a couple of guys in green. Yeah, I can see where this is going.

57. This creepy clown wants you to support the Michigan Wolverines or else.

Another creepy clown under a ski mask. Guaranteed to haunt your dreams. Sleep tight, sweetie.

58. Missouri Tiger fans support breast cancer awareness.

They’re all in pink with tiger stripes. Though the women are wearing pink shirts for obvious reasons.

59. Seems like many of these Navy guys are real ship heads.

So they actually have these foam hats. Though I prefer the other hats.

60. I’m sure some guys will get a kick out of these LSU Tiger women.

I see they painted themselves like tigers with bras meant to blend in. They also have the tiger headbands with ears.

61. You might want to check with this mouse from Syracuse.

I know this mouse is from a cartoon, but I can’t recall it. Yet, I see sports fan dress up as this character on Pinterest.

62. She cheers for the Syracuse Orange even if she didn’t make the squad.

She has pom poms in her hair and hands. Seems like this was for March Madness.

63. Mario doesn’t seem to like how this Texas Christian game is going.

Too bad Mario doesn’t have access to mushrooms so he can get bigger and shoot fire balls. Maybe that would help TCU even though that would be cheating.

64. Didn’t know that the University of Tennessee has fans out of this world.

Sure it’s not a real spacesuit since those things are incredibly heavy. But he’s nevertheless here for the Volunteers.

65. These masked men come to see the game for Texas Tech.

One of them has a black Spider Man mask. But the other masks remind you of a horror movie villain.

66. This super squad of fans will not let the Tar Heels down.

One of them even has a Batman logo with UNC. A woman has a high hat. And they’ve all painted themselves blue.

67. Best to go all orange and stripes to support Auburn.

All he’s wearing on top are shoulder pads. Not sure if he’s comfortable.

68. Apparently, USC fans start out young.

Makes you wonder what these kids will be like when they’re older. But they’re kind of adorable with fake hair and body paint.

69. I bring you a real USC Trojan.

Well, he’s dressed like a hoplite from the Trojan War. Though it’s a bit over the top.

70. My, those must be large spikes.

Sure he’s going for the Utah Utes. But at least he’s not as bad with the cultural appropriation.

71. This man is all golden for his Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish.

Well, he’s certainly flashy with a bowtie and flower boa. Least he’s not dressed as a leprechaun.

72. One has to go orange for the Tennessee Volunteers.

Kind of resembles an Oompah Loompah here. But that’s the magic of body paint for you.

73. This Husky woman turns out sparking for Washington University.

Yes, she has to show up in sparkling pants and a husky hat. Yet, you should see the guy in a yellow coat and plaid pants.

74. This purple horse always cheers for his Washington Huskies.

I know he looks silly, especially with a purple horse’s head. Oh, how far fans go for their team.

75. These Mountaineer fans are going to rock n’ roll all night.

Of course, they had to paint their faces as members of KISS. But at least they didn’t don the wigs.

76. This fan from Miami has a bit of a skull face.

Not sure if it does the trick. But the hat and polo don’t do that look wonders.

77. No matter how you see it, her hands make a U.

For University of Miami of course. Her U things can also be used as oven mitts by the way.

78. At Stanford University, this Cardinal fan’s an evergreen supporter.

Not sure why the Stanford mascot is a tree. But this guy really has his school spirit in him.

79. At Clemson, these Tiger women have put on their stripes.

Unlike the LSU fans, they’re not covering their faces. But yes, this is ridiculous.

80. DCU women always go for Syracuse.

You see, Catwoman and Wonder Woman may not always get along. But they can still be friends.

81. If you’re for Purdue, you just have to wear the flashy robes.

Well, if you want to be seen, that seems to be the way to go. Though they’re rooting for their Boilermakers in strange attire.

82. At USC it helps to stand like a real Trojan.

Uh, this isn’t 300. Besides, Trojans didn’t fight in the buff either. It’s probably more appropriate for this guy to look like this when he’s wearing a Trojan on his sword. Though his abs aren’t all that bad.

83. Here we have a warrior at Oklahoma State showing love for his Pokes.

Yes, he’s in a toga and Roman helmet. I know it doesn’t make sense. And no, I don’t understand why he’s wearing gloves.

84. For some people, a Florida Gators game is a family tradition.

They’re wearing jerseys, spiked shoulder pads, and dyed hair. The dad has his colored blue.

85. For golden masked me, it’s always the University of Toledo Rockets.

Not familiar with that school. But you have to think these guys are nuts to wear masks and wigs like that.

86. There’s strong and then there’s Army strong. And then there’s these guys.

And these soldiers have their team spelled out in yellow body paint. Not sure if it’s got on their uniforms.

87. At LSU, she likes to get into the Tiger’s skin.

Well, at least she managed a photo op with the mascot. Though at least it’s better than body paint.

88. It’s very clear that the Founding Fathers are behind old Virginia Tech.

You’d think they’d be for the University of Virginia which Thomas Jefferson founded. Just saying.

89. Batgirl always goes for Boston College.

She even has a flag to show for it. Though the uniform does appear a bit 1960ish.

90. For these Cowboys, Mizzou Tigers are all the way.

And they’re shirtless, too. Still, not sure if Missouri had any cowboys. Doesn’t seem to make sense.

91. Best to wear the team you love on your back.

And it seems like this person has to do the Batman pose. Fair enough.

92. At Michigan State, the Spartan fans who go to games together, stay together.

And it seems they went with the striped overalls and the Spartan hats. Not sure if I like that.

93. You have to wonder if this Seminole fan is being serious.

After all, he’s dressed as the Joker. Even has his suit despite his goatee.

94. This group of Elvises salute Ole Miss.

After all, Elvis was from the great state of Mississippi. And one of them even dons Ole Miss colors.

95. At Oregon, everyone’s committed to diversity.

For they accept Mexicans and anyone with weird colored hair. As long as it’s green, yellow, or both.

96. Didn’t know you could find Vikings in Arizona.

Of course you can’t. But that doesn’t stop this guy from wearing a helmet with horns. Even if most Vikings didn’t.

97. It’s al zebra striped with this Washington Huskies fan.

And yes, he even has a wrestling belt and husky shirt on him. Yet, he’s clearly kind of flashy in purple.

98. It helps if you arrive in a cape at LSU.

I see his cape is made from duct tape. And that he has his chest painted.

99. All this Nebraska Husker wants to do is watch the game.

And yes, he has a corncob on his head and his face painted. Kind of creepy but he doesn’t bite.

100. My, this Oklahoma State Cowboys fan has a small hat and a large mustache.

Yes, his stache his so huge, you can’t even see his mouth. But how he keeps that hat on his head, I have no idea.

Gather Round All Ye Lords and Ladies to Marvel at These Magnificent Costumes of the Ye Olde Renaissance Festival (Third Edition)

New-York-Renaissance-Faire.jpg

Renaissance Festival season is back in southwestern Pennsylvania with the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival starting on August 26th and running through weekends in September and Labor Day. So anyone interested might want to get into their LOTR and Game of Thrones costumes, get a purse full of cash, and enjoy the fantasy! Of course, you’ll often find a mishmash of costumes ranging from medieval to 1600s which include royalty, pirates, fairies, Vikings, gypsies, mythological creatures, and others. And all in a pseudo-historical and overpriced event suited for 21st century eyes. Because had you been at a festival during the Renaissance you probably wouldn’t want to be there. Not because they didn’t serve turkey legs since nobody was settling in America at that point. Well, there was Spanish colonization and Roanoke but let’s just you don’t want to there either. And let’s just say the Renaissance was far dirtier, bloodier, and uglier than what these renfests show you. Call it a theme park version if you will since the primary aim for a Renaissance festival is entertainment. And yes, you’ll see plenty of people show up in their outfits. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you another assortment of Renaissance Festival costumes.

  1. It takes a little peasant to hold up a big frame.

Well, the frame is more like big for her. But sometimes size is irrelevant.

2. A satyr should always stand in leafy glory.

And we should all agree that his fall look is fabulous. Then again, fall leaves are among the most colorful.

3. You’d almost mistake this kid for a little barbarian.

The costume mainly consists of torn clothing and a fur cape. But the velcro shoes give an anachronistic impression.

4. Simple dresses and straw hats can do for peasant styles.

After all, regular Renaissance women weren’t wearing lavish gowns to show off to everyone. So these will do fine.

5. Seems like we’ve come to a magic troll in the forest.

Then again, he seems like he could be a wizard. Perhaps Merlin’s brother Elsgarth who’s known to harass woodland creatures.

6. You can always enjoy a pint in a fancy hat.

You can also have a patched skirt and leather fanny pack to match. Of course, someone in Britain is probably laughing right now.

7. Sometimes brown can really do it for you.

You’d almost mistake this guy for the Sheriff of Nottingham. Except he wouldn’t be wearing that in the 12th century save in movies.

8. You can even get a Renaissance Festival dress in an infant size.

Though in the Renaissance, it’s likely both boys and girls would wear them. But not like this.

9. A fair lady can always turn heads in red.

Makes her appear like a villain in a Tudor drama. Bet she has a dagger hidden under her skirt.

10. A winter queen always wears a resplendent blue dress.

Though this doesn’t seem like the season for it. Then again, it might be the only time the Renaissance Festival comes to her hometown.

11. A sea beauty can always go with some blue hair.

She’s supposed to be dressed as a mermaid with a jeweled seashell bra. But a blue skirt is close enough.

12. A Scotsman must stand tall with an ax in his kilt.

Not bad with the leather top. But I wonder if he’s wearing anything underneath. Because you know what they all say about men in kilts.

13. Seems like this couple wanted to dress in something that matches with the landscape.

Well, not quite. The woman wears a sky blue dress. But they both look very beige to me.

14. When it gets cold, you might want some furs.

Apparently, the people of PETA are upset right now. But the fur is fake and part of a witch costume.

15. With fall fashion, you can’t beat the forest spirits.

I see we have an elf, an antler woman, and a woman in a leafy headdress. And yes, they aim to match the trees.

16. Beware of the man in the long leather mask.

You know the old plague doctor’s mask? Sure it’s not an authentic model. But it’ll protect him from the plague as well as a real one ever did. Not at all.

17. Any girl can be a warrior princess.

This one looks more like a Viking outfit. Not as fancy as a gown but practical. Hope she knows how to handle a sword.

18. Bet you didn’t expect to see a fairy decked in green.

She even wears fishnet stockings on her legs. But you have to check out her gold and green wings.

19. A Scottish lass must have some plaid on her.

After all, what’s Scottish pride without a tam and plaid? Besides, kilts are menswear.

20. A simple smock is fine for a forest spirit.

Because no fairy wants to be held down by a heavy Renaissance dress. Still, love the purple.

21. A fall fairy can sport rather gorgeous wings.

Seems like fall fairies are all the rage. She even wears a leafy headdress and rainbow tutu.

22. Any lady can stun in an elegant green.

Comes with long, wide sleeves and golden embroidery. Stunning and will probably break the bank.

23. A harp playing fairy is magical in magnificent purple.

Yes, these costumes can get quite elaborate. But I’m always a sucker for purple stuff. Love the skirt.

24. Not sure how anyone could play on two pipes at once.

Maybe the pipes are two different clefs. Then again, it goes with her fairy costume.

25. A peacock fairy is a wondrous sight.

Her outfit is covered in peacock feathers from top to bottom. Love it.

26. Who says a girl can’t go out in the woods by herself?

However, let’s hope the bow, arrows, and dagger are fashion accessories. Because using weapons in public shouldn’t be encouraged.

27. Apparently, someone’s a hit with the ladies.

Yes, that guy seems quite proud of himself being among women. I’m sure any of these would want him to open their bodice. Since they must be roasting in these dresses.

28. These lady pirates are always up for a beer.

Though real pirate ladies usually dressed as dudes to conceal their identities. So they wouldn’t be wearing lovely outfits like these.

29. I suppose this woman is supposed to be Mary, Queen of Scots.

If so, then I don’t think she’ll live happily ever after. Actually her whole life was a series of unfortunate events.

30. A peasant woman carries her things on her belt.

Because most 16th century dresses didn’t have pockets. And that’s why we have purses today.

31. I believe this barbarian relishes in making an entrance.

Had this one for at least a year or two. Wasn’t sure what to do with it until now. But you have to admire the guy’s mail and teeth helmet.

32. Is that a shaman or a witch doctor?

Yes, I know it looks cool. But the skulls seem to suggest a connotation with death and cannibalism for some reason.

33. Perhaps you might want to don a colorful princess gown.

This one is mostly red with loose sleeves and a yellow underskirt. The neckline is lined with gold.

34. A  long black bodice stands out in yellow and white.

Though it doesn’t seem laced very tightly. Then again, to each his own.

35. A man should always wear the right boots to match his pantaloons.

Okay, he’s wearing pants. But the rule applies. Also, check out those poofy sleeves.

36. You should be careful about walking in your own bare feet.

Uh, the floor is mulch and chances are this woman will come home to feet filled with splinters. For God’s sake, we have shoes for a reason.

37. One of these pirates has a pair of goggles ready for the adventure.

Yes, pirates might seem cool. But you wouldn’t want to be around a bunch of drunk guys on a wooden ship that smells like shit.

38. Peasant dress isn’t always as simple as it looks.

I’m sure this consists of several pieces of fabric. And it’s dirtied up for a more “authentic” look.

39. A guy looks like a fighter with spiky armor and helmet horns.

Though the most this knight will accomplish is putting someone else’s eye out. Looks baddass, by the way.

40. “Interesting that you humans have these Renaissance Festivals.”

Yes, I know Data’s from Star Trek TNG and has nothing to do with the Renaissance. Still, let’s pretend he’s in the Enterprise holosuite program.

41. Looks like we’ve come to a couple of fairies.

Not those kind of fairies. These have wings and flutter. One of them is a guy.

42. This woman has mail all over her.

Yes, her outfit is made of chain mail which was once used armor. Let’s hope it doesn’t freeze on her if it’s abnormally cold.

43. This fairy loves to deck her hair with flowers.

Yes, I know I’ve featured a lot of fairies on this post. But this one kind of stands out for me. Don’t know why.

44. On cold days, you might want to bundle up with feathers.

Then again, the feathered look might be a bit too much. But I love the feather mask.

45. If you should travel to the Renaissance Fair, I suppose you might prefer a 3 piece dress.

Just consists of a shirt, corset, and skirt. You can also add a garland if you want to.

46. How about a pint with this old warrior?

Kind of reminds you of a sage from some fantasy film. Of course, he must’ve spent a lot of time on his outfit.

47. Maybe you might want to see a fairy queen with a couple of entertainers.

I guess she’s with a jester and a troubadour. Jester also knows how to juggle.

48. This redhead is her own knight in shining armor.

She even has her own horse to show for it. Hope the mail doesn’t weigh her down.

49. This red-caped woman comes with her own bull horn.

That way if she runs into a wolf, she can blow into it and call for help. Then again, that horn might be used for gun powder.

50. I’m sure nobody could resist these 3 little swordsmen.

At least they’re playing with wooden swords. They’re also dressed he same, too.

51. This centaur has an unusual hairy chest.

You can see he has wheels on the back legs. And please don’t ask him how he goes to the bathroom.

52. This belly dancer has come to entrance you to her moves.

Interesting how her outfit goes with her pink hair. And I suppose she’s not wearing a midriff due to the weather.

53. A fairy should never go out without a flower dress.

She even has more flowers in the back. Must’ve taken her hours to get dressed in that. outfit.

54. Pardon me, or is that Captain Jack Sparrow?

Well, he almost resembles the Johnny Depp character. Even has the swagger.

55. Seems like a couple of Vikings invaded this Renaissance Festival.

Both have horned helmets which Vikings didn’t wear when on their boats. And there are obvious reasons for that.

56. She knows her way with a bow and arrow.

Helps if she wears a simple dress with a belt. Not sure how it helps her give a good aim though.

57. May I introduce you to the rainbow fairy?

She has rainbow wings and tutu. But her top is mostly white. So pretty.

58. Now this guy looks like a real lovable rogue.

He has a sword and his tunic with leather pants and boots. Simple yet effective.

59. Between these three, there isn’t much there.

Or rather on them. And yes, they’ll probably shiver at the end of September.

60. Now that’s some rather interesting armor.

Well, she has a couple of plates on her boobs. Though I particularly want to know whether she’s holding a knife or scepter in her hand.

61. You may even see an ogre or two at the Renaissance Faire.

I know the guy is supposed to be Shrek. But the woman doesn’t look like Fiona.

62. For a little princess a dress of pink and purple will do.

Of course, let’s hope she doesn’t go to the Renfest when it’s raining. Because she’s so adorable in it.

63. Nothing makes a soldier look badass like tacked leather.

Though that won’t protect you like chain mail and armor. But yes, it makes you think you’ll be great for Game of Thrones.

64. Didn’t think I’d see a green fairy in the winter.

Though she seems more suited for spring or summer. Also, how does she keep warm in the snow.

65. For this family, the Renaissance Festival doesn’t get better than this.

Yes, whole families attend this event every year. And this family came as a group of peasants.

66. My, we have a ragtag bunch of misfits.

Well, we have a satyr, two fairies, and a traveler. Love the parasol.

67. Go ahead, green fairy, try to look cute with your little wings.

For some reason, a lot of fairies wear green. Maybe it’s to blend in with the green in the forest.

68. These three gypsies have come with tambourines.

Well, at least two of them did. But you have to admire the girls’ colorful dresses.

69. Here we come to a Viking warrior woman all blinged out.

Yes, I know she doesn’t have much on her. Still, I believe she comes from the Nordic land of Las Vegas.

70. Apparently, this family of pirates are having a jolly time.

Note that most real pirates didn’t live past 30. Still, you can’t help but like their outfits.

71. These little fairies hope you enjoy the magic.

They could almost be the little versions of some of the fairies I showed on this post. And yes, they’re filled with magical cuteness.

72. You might enjoy the fun size version of the Three Musketeers.

Okay, they’re little boys dressed as the Three Musketeers. Yet, you can’t think they’re anything less than adorable.

73. Nothing can feast your eyes like a fairy peacock queen.

She has a peacock feather crown with butterfly wings. Love the feathers.

74. You’d almost think she has a face of an angel.

She’s said to be a fairy godmother. But I liken her to a living statue. Hope she doesn’t freak out anyone.

75. It won’t take long for you to recognize this jester in a parade.

After all, he’s clad in black and white while everyone else is in color. But he doesn’t seem to mind.

76. A beige and maroon dress certainly does impress.

I guess she’s one of the court ladies at the Renaissance Festival. Not sure who she’s supposed to be.

77.  This noble lady has come to the faire with her own maid.

Well, as far as I can tell by the outfits. But the one on the left looks more like a cook.

78. Apparently, she came to the Renaissance Festival looking for a man.

Then again, this was what women were supposed to do during the Renaissance. Though normally it would comprise of being married off to a guy your parents wanted you to be with. This is especially if they needed the money.

79. You’d almost think a demon came to town.

Yes, he seems like the Krampus But his wings and head are surely impressive.

80. For some, you might come across this noble soul.

Yes, it’s a dog dressed in Renaissance garb. I know what you’re thinking. But at least it’s not as fancy.

NFL Fans Dressed and Ready for Game Day (Third Edition)

WIN_20170811_11_36_16_Pro

Here I sit on the swing with my Terrible Towel wearing my Steeler earrings and a jersey from my sister. And yes, I was sweating in it during the shoot.

While August may be a slow month for many, it’s certainly not for me. Mostly because there are so many things going on. For one, you have back to school season when the kids prepare to return to school. Then there’s the start of the football season which is huge in the Pittsburgh area as well as the rest of the United States. And since the Steelers are about to kick off today on their first preseason game, I might as well take care of my NFL stuff first. For the last 2 years I’ve don posts on football costumes, merchandise and crafts. Because while my dad may insist on watching his games, there are plenty of NFL fans far crazier than him or a lot of other people in my area. For instance, while my dad hasn’t been to Heinz Field, he’s totally okay about it. In fact, he’d rather watch his Steeler games on TV in the comfort of his own home anyway. At least he could go to the bathroom during a commercial break and get his own food from the kitchen. But if there was anything that would make the NFL football experience more worthwhile to me would be watching the fans. Since I find some of these fans’ outfits far more interesting than the game. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of crazy NFL fans in their team spirit gear.

  1. Undead skull man salutes his Oakland Raiders.

Too bad his team’s moving to Vegas. Makes me feel bad for the people of Oakland who seem to be among the most avid NFL fans in the country.

2. As a Dallas Cowboys fan, blue hair goes the extra mile.

He even has striped pants, a helmet, Cowboys tie, and face paint to match. Yet, he’s wearing a coat for the weather.

3. With two swords on his helmet, this guy’s in the Raider spirit of things.

Don’t worry, his head is fine. But I’m sure this will certainly get him noticed since his head resembles the logo. Sort of.

4. There’s something beaky about this Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Well, he has a beak nose on his helmet. Still, compared to other NFL fans on this post, this is tame.

5. Support your Denver Broncos with feathers, tulle, and a crazy hat.

Sure her costume seems to come from stuff she found at a craft store. But sometimes it’s the thought that counts.

6. Now we come to a true Dallas Cowboy.

This guy is know as Crazy Ray. Of course, his costume isn’t as outlandish as some of these other NFL fans. And it’s rather appropriate.

7. If you’re a Houston Texan fan, you got to have horns.

And I see these guys may wear different hats. But they didn’t ignore the horns. Hope they don’t put somebody’s eye out.

8. For this Seahawks fan, the shirt has to match the face paint.

I thin the shirt is enough here. But some people have to go the extra mile like this guy.

9. Even Imperial Stormtroopers love the Houston Texans.

The Stormtrooper even has a blue mohawk and is posing with the team mascot. The pilot doesn’t have much else.

10. When you support the Ravens, you even have to have a lot of bling with a jester’s hat.

Not sure if it weighs him down at the game. But at least he has an interesting hat.

11. A striped face and a clown wig is all you need to support the Buffalo Bills.

Well, as far as this guy is concerned. Though he doesn’t seem happy about how his Bills are doing.

12. Footballhead doesn’t like how the game’s going for the Broncos.

Then again, it’s a mask meant to look scary. But it seems rather annoyed to me.

13. You wouldn’t know who these baggy Miami Dolphins fans are.

But they’re not ashamed about supporting their team. They just didn’t want to use face paint.

14. Even a Steeler fan has to get the best black and gold sombrero.

An equally fancy luchador mask can also complete the look. Now that’s intimidating to see.

15. For her Colts, this woman gets out her puppet monkeys for the holidays.

Helps if the monkeys wear Colts Santa hats, too. Still, kind of creepy for me to take in.

16. When in doubt go green and blue for the Seattle Seahawks.

Well, this guy seems to. And his blue hair is all spiky for good measure.

17. This Ravens fan really likes to show his team’s glory on his head.

Yes, the Ravens won as many Super Bowls as Ray Lewis has murder allegations. And this guy has a feathered cape alongside his giant ring hat, too.

18. Seems like this joker is a very serious Steelers fan.

Well, he has the Joker makeup to his Steeler specifications. Not sure about the hat though.

19. Make way for the Miami Dolphins Pope.

Guess they have a guy like that for every NFL team out there. But this cleric paints his face.

20. This Halo hero salutes his Houston Texans.

Though he must be hot in his costume. But for some, it’s all worth it for the team.

21. This masked beauty does her hair only for the Miami Dolphins.

Okay, it’s a wig. But it’s in aqua, orange and white. And she wear’s a mask for an enhanced effect.

22. This Joker delights in supporting the New Orleans Saints.

Even has a Fleur de Lis in each hand. Yet, he’s also wearing a suit with a pink boa.

23. For this 49er’s fan, the lucha mask has to contain a gold nugget.

The hat’s made out of foam. And he’s not wearing as shirt. But we all know how the 49ers got their name.

24. This Super Seahawks fan might need to leave early if there’s any danger.

He’s even wearing Superman briefs with a Skittles wrapper on his chest. Not sure what that’s supposed to mean.

25. This blue man goes all out for his Detroit Lions.

Despite that the Detroit Lions are among the worst teams in the NFL. But this guy’s keeping his cool with his thumbs up.

26. This Minnesota Vikings fan hopes his team demolishes Dallas.

Wonder if they have one for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Because my dad really hates the Dallas Cowboys.

27. Feathers and shells always make for a great Oakland Raiders headdress.

Well, I’ve put a similar fan picture on another post but that might’ve been from the Saints. But this one seems to have a rather strange quality to it. Maybe that’s intentional.

28. A Raiders fan can never have too many skulls.

Well, he seems to have a lot. Not only around his neck but on his hard hat.

29. Chicago gangsters always dress dapper for a game with the Bears.

After all, Chicago’s famous for Al Capone. And for the Boardwalk Empire touch, the orange suits are in pinstripe.

30. Seems like Seahawks fans tend to be on the Dark Side.

At least this Darth Vader costume is intact and unchanged. Just a Seahawks scarf and lightsaber are plenty.

31. You’re not a Vikings fan until you go purple.

They at least match with the face paint and jerseys. But you have to like the other guy’s fuzzy horned helmet.

32. This guy would be a fool not to support his New Orleans Saints.

He’s even wearing a jester outfit of black and gold to show his love for the Saints. After all, he’s quite a joker.

33. This man always goes all out for his Pittsburgh Steelers.

He has a Steeler car and a Vince Lombardi trophy in Steeler insignia. Also have love the glasses.

34. Wonder if this guy’s name is Spike.

Because he has spikes all over him, get it. Also have to behold his skulls and chains. And yes, he’s a Raiders fan.

35. Now this guy seems like a real ship head.

That’s because it’s all about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to him. He’s also wearing beads and has his face red and silver.

36. Looks like this guy is all spotted for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Though the Jaguars reside in Florida’s largest city, they’re the least remembered. Maybe because they don’t do well in football.

37. This feathered mask lady is pulling for her Atlanta Falcons.

Too bad, the Falcons would lose to the Patriots at the Super Bowl. Yes, I was disappointed, too. Because everyone outside New England hates the Patriots.

38. Seems like Darth Vader has it in for the Raiders.

His buddy has a camera on is helmet. Nevertheless, hope they’re coping with their team’s move to Vegas.

39. For Super Bowl L, Broncos fans pose with their orange clown wigs.

Don’t really get the whole clown wig thing here. Except that it’s outrageous. Sot it goes on this post.

40. Heard of Goldfinger? Meet Mr. Goldman.

And his team is the New Orleans Saints. Notice how he has a Fleur de Lis on his face.

41. This skullhead Raiders fan supports breast cancer awareness.

Still, very little money from pink merchandise actually goes to breast cancer. Look it up.

42. This 49ers fan has come in his own sombrero.

This guy even has ornaments on it. Bet he’s had too much time on his hands.

43. Even old timey ghosts support the Oakland Raiders.

And this guy seems straight out of a horror movie. Yes, I’m already kind of freaking out right now.

44. When in doubt, go with a funky wig.

Here’s a Philadelphia Eagles fan in a lucha mask and clown wig of his team colors. And he’s having a drink during the game.

45. This Raiders fan has the Grim Reaper on his chest.

Yes, I know Raiders fan usually go with the creepy skull stuff. But that’s kind of a tradition for them. And why I put so many on my NFL fan posts.

46. You can’t go wrong with a wooden Seahawk hat.

This is especially if it has Seahawk color braids coming out. Then again, their logo was inspired from Native American art of the Pacific Coast. So what do you expect?

47. Speaking of Seahawks fans, check out the blue and green hair on these.

One of them has a mohawk. One of them has a crown. Yet, all support their Seahawks when the day is done.

48. Seems like this Grinch has a soft spot for the Tennessee Titans.

Well, he’s dressed in a green outfit with a Santa hat. But he just doesn’t seem Grinchy to me.

49. This woman is all feathers for the Atlanta Falcons.

She’s known as “Bird Lady” by the way. Too bad her team didn’t win the Super Bowl against the Patriots.

50. Fuzzy robes are always in for Broncos fans.

The kid is even dressed like a mini Hulk Hogan. And they even match.

51. Never expected to find a Packers fan in a sombrero.

I was wondering where I’d eventually see some Packers fans. Because they’d usually turn up when I’m less than halfway through.

52. This Packers fan is going to rock and roll all night and party every day.

This one is dressed as a member of KISS. And has spikes on shoulder pads. Not sure why.

53. This undead jester has come for the Raiders.

This guy has a skull mask and jester cap with jingles. Yes, it’s bound to freak you out.

54. Nothing makes you a bigger fan of the San Diego Chargers than a bolt on your chest.

Now the Chargers have relocated to LA. Kind of feel bad for this guy now. But at least he’s shown his team spirit by painting himself light blue.

55. Though Packers fans typically have cheese hats, I’m not so sure about this.

This one has the Green Bay Packer devouring a Detroit Lion. Okay, now I get it.

56. Sometimes the face paint says it all for this Arizona Cardinals fan.

At least he got the Cardinal look right. Not sure if the clown wig does wonders though.

57. Get a load of these suits on these Steeler fans.

The outfits are supposed to be from the 1970s during the Steelers glory days. And these guys grew the hair to live up to it.

58. A Rams fan always has to have a pair of curled horns.

Yet, another team that moved to Los Angeles. Still, this fan is rather creepy looking. Even if the horns are plush.

59. This red butterfly flutters for the Atlanta Falcons.

She has her wings lined with red fuzz and wears a shiny dress. Hope those large wings don’t cause any problems for other spectators.

60. When you attend a Cincinnati Bengals game at 1 and are starring in a local production of Cats at 5.

Okay, I know that’s highly unlikely. But the fan just reminded me of someone from Cats. Can’t anyone take a joke now and then?

61. The Houston Texans are the team for this all-American cowgirl.

Well, she certainly has a cowboy hat on and a flag. And all with the Texans logo.

62. I call this the, “Bronco Weave.”

Yes, she has a Bronco logo on her head. But I’ve seen other fans style their hair for their team. This is just far more creative.

63. The X-Factor and Elvis always go for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Yet, they’re fans of the NFL team in Missouri that didn’t move to LA. But yes, the guy on the right looks ridiculous.

64. For this king, the Houston Texans can do no wrong.

Well, it’s a ridiculously oversized crown. But it shows the Texans logo like it’s no tomorrow.

65. This black bird is Raven mad.

This one even has a bird head and wings. But the Baltimore Ravens scarf is plenty.

66. This Philadelphia Eagles fan has quite the bird brain.

That’s because he has an eagle head. Kind of freaky and outrageous. But good for the post.

67. Bet you can’t see this Bengals Stormtrooper.

Well, he’s in orange with black stripes on his helmet. Don’t worry if he gets in a fight. He can’t hit anything.

68. You don’t always have to wear a fur and horn headdress. But sometimes it helps.

For this Atlanta Falcons fan it sure did. And then the Falcons had to play the Patriots at the Super Bowl.

69. Now this guy is the ultimate Rams fan.

After all, if you sport a ram’s head, then you’ll surely be noticed. Too bad his team moved to LA.

70. These Green Bay Packers fans come all fired up.

They’re dressed as firemen in Packers gear, get it? Though I like the sirens on their heads.

71. These fans got themselves all hulked up for the Houston Texans.

Here these two are in their Hulk costumes and ripped shirts. You wouldn’t want to be near them when they’re angry.

72. When you’re a New York Jets fan, you have to go green, literally.

For these guys it’s painting their bodies green and wearing green wigs. Also, spelling out “Jets” on their chest.

73. This jester brings along his own Denver Broncos camper.

I don’t know why fans do stuff like that. But he seems to be getting attention for it. So beats me.

74. This Detroit Lions fan has it ringing with Elton John glasses.

Of course, the ring isn’t from the Super Bowl. Because the Detroit Lions never won one. Look it up.

75. Some of these Seahawks fans can dress so skimpy these days.

Okay, that’s a guy dressed as a scantily clad woman in Seahawks gear. Still, I think it’s kind of hilarious.

76. Gorilla Man and Spider Man have turned up to support the New England Patriots.

Just don’t ask them about the deflated footballs. Or you’ll be beat senseless and hung upside down in a spider web.

77. Apparently, all this New Orleans Saints fan sees are dollar signs.

Not sure if that’s a man or a woman. But there’s some originality with the dollar sign glasses and pimp style.

78. This Seahawks fan must have strong feelings for the 49ers.

Apparently, he has a 49er plush impaled on one of his hair spikes. Kind of clever yet disturbing at the same time.

79. This Green Bay Packers family all has Super Bowl rings on their heads.

After all, they did win Super Bowls. But they all look so ridiculous you can’t help but laugh.

80. If you’re a Steeler fan, you can let it all hang out.

Though I wouldn’t necessarily mean by that. This is particularly the case with this guy running shirtless in the snow.

81. For the Atlanta Falcons, this guy will take anything.

For he’s clad in armor and is sporting a Mohawk. Just don’t mention the Super Bowl.

82. Hope you can make room for this Packers fan.

At least his helmet’s made from paper mache. Though you’d kind of wish he’d put a coat on or something. Cause he must be freezing.

83. I suppose the antlers will hold up during this game.

He even has them decorated with beads and put on his helmet. Not sure if it’s for Christmas. But not bad.

84. Hope you don’t cross these Raiders fans.

All of them have black and white faces. But only one is wearing a sombrero.

85. It’s always shields and helmets for these Minnesota Vikings fans.

The guy has a purple Viking helmet with horns. Also, their shields appear to light up.

86. How about an eagle head on your shoulder?

Or a Philadelphia Eagle head, that is. Bet the look is based on a video game character though.

87. Wonder what these bears are up to.

Yes, they’re Chicago Bear fans in bear suits. No, I’m not sure how they eat in their costumes.

88. This Indianapolis Colts fan screams blue and white.

Almost resembles a Transformer. But it’s mostly the cloth doing it for me.

89. This Patriots fan arrives at the stadium with a star spangled hat.

Though you can include the cowbell and wig for good measure. God knows anything can use more cowbell.

90. These Houston Texans fans know how to stay classy.

They’re both in lucha masks with horns. One has blue while the other has red. Still, got to love the capes.

91. Apparently, this woman suffers from serious beer goggles.

Well, she made a pair with cans to support the Green Bay Packers. Yet, as far as beer goggles is concerned, she’s doing it right.

92. A Buffalo Bills fan should never go without a tall buffalo hat.

It’s like a tall buffalo hat with horns on it. And yes, he’s doing his victory dance.

93. This Kansas City Chiefs fan shows his war bonnet in full glory.

Hey, cultural appropriation isn’t just limited to Washington Redskins fans in the NFL. Still, I couldn’t avoid putting this on my post. My apologies to the Native American community.

94. This cheese head comes with its own horns and beard.

Well, they resemble prongs more or less. Still, the ski goggles and beard are clever.

95. Bet this Saints fan is  real jest.

But that jester costume really freaks me out for some reason. Maybe that’s the point.

96. This looks like a job for Bronco Batman.

Of course, he’s only in a bright orange mask. Yet, would rather beat up bad guys in more casual attire.

97. This Cleveland Browns fan is all fries and no ketchup.

Doesn’t seem too happy right now. Then again, the Cleveland Browns aren’t known for winning their games anyway.

98. This Arizona Cardinals fan can really strike the cardinal look.

Well, at least with the mohawk and face paint. Not sure about the spiky jewelry though.

99. These Indianapolis Colts fans are really going ape.

And that’s what NFL football is like on the Planet of the Apes. Except the apes aren’t blue.

100. You’d want to stay away from this Raiders wolf.

If his team loses, he’d be howling mad. Of course, this is often since the Raiders aren’t known for winning.

The Anthro World of Furry Costumes (Second Edition)

tumblr_nm976yaS8S1s8wywzo1_500

Once again, Pittsburgh has paid host to world’s largest furry convention, Anthrocon. I know many people might see it as a strange fetish. And for many people it is. But as far as Pittsburgh is concerned, as long as these animal costumed fans spend their money for food and lodging. Also, they seem to be a hit with the kids as far as the news reports make it. Still, you have to wonder how they’d put up wearing an animal costume in scorching heat is the question. I mean they’d have to be roasting in these outfits. After all, many of the character costumes at Disney World are equipped with fans for obvious reasons, not the least that the resort is located in central Florida. But still, furry culture can seem quite weird as you see in the picture above. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of furry costumes.

  1. That bighorn yak sure wields an axe.

Though I almost thought it was a bat until I saw the horns. Still, he has a nice suit of armor.

2. Seems like we have a spiked deer in our midst.

Even has a necklace in his likeness. Must be a character from a book he’s read.

3. Bet you’ve never seen a blue dog before.

Yet, he seems to have brown hair on his head. Not sure how to explain that.

4. This blue dog has some fins and a tail to match.

Well, a lot of furries do consist of mix and match critters. This one has a shark fin and tail.

5. You might give a paw to this scruffy animal.

Not sure whether I’d say they’re a fox or a dog. Either way, they must be hot under that thing.

6. Long ears never go out of style.

Helps if you wear a shirt that matches your black and purple fur. Though that might be stretching it.

7. Blue fur is always great at the playground.

Doesn’t hurt if they can show of their long tail. Though what’s with the blue bandanna?

8. This white snow leopard just wants to say hello.

Well, she she surely has a nice coat and tail. Hope she can catch the escalator.

9. Teal and orange never go out of style.

Though I have to admit, the bandanna goes quite nicely. Still, there’s a lot about furries I don’t understand.

10. Seems like nobody expected a white wolf in the city.

Interesting how a lot of these furry costumes depict dogs. Yet, this one is almost all white for some reason.

11. Sometimes natural earth tones are best.

Well, he’s flexing his muscles to look like a tough guy. Not sure if it helps his case.

12. Who are you calling spotted?

This one has orange and black spots on their back. But they really seem quite the character.

13. Don’t mind this horned dog hanging out.

Yes, I know dogs don’t wear horns. But some of these furry costumes are simply fantastical. Also, are those hooves?

14. How about you greet this cool black cat?

Even has their own collar. But don’t worry, they won’t give you bad luck if they cross your path.

15. Anthrocon is always a great place to spread one’s wings.

This guy came dressed as a fuzzy dragon. Though why they have fur instead of scales, I have no idea.

16. Sometimes a wolf may feel content in their own skin.

Bet they’re just waiting for their pack to return. Or they’re just a lonely wolf tired of howling.

17. Might want to check out this kitty’s jet pack.

Well, the flames are mostly made from tissue paper. But the rest of it almost resembles a the real thing.

18. Now this guy is quite the tiger.

Though when they say, “Be a tiger,” they usually don’t mean it literally. But this is a pretty cool costume nonetheless.

19. You can always stand out in red stripes.

This guy even has a red nose to match. Though the fur composition is quite a combination.

20. But you can always use some blue now and then.

Seems to resemble a husky of some sort. Then again, there’s much about furries I don’t understand.

21. You dare not to mess with this horny bobcat.

Well, she has horns. But she’s also dressed as a fantasy character to let you know her animal originally existed in her imagination.

22. These dogs just want to keep things casual for now.

Well, at least their clothes make them seem less freaky. But yes, the furry thing is pretty weird.

23. Seems like someone has their paws out.

Though the fur pattern is quite intricate. But I’m sure it’s not meant for camouflage.

24. This panda bear has left the building.

Not every day you see a panda walking around. Hope he can get plenty of bamboo before he leaves town.

25. You can always wear a scarf with red and gold.

Well, this guy knows how to stand out in a crowd. Yet, I’m sure you’d freak out if you saw a dog like this.

26. Check out this cool dog in black with yellow stripes.

Almost thought this was a horse until I saw thedog nose. But pretty snazzy if you ask me.

27. This perky dog is eager for anything.

Well, she’s wearing a lovely top and jeans. But the bow is kind of bland.

28. Never thought I’d see a minotaur up close before.

Also, I’m more used to seeing a minotaur in a stone Cretan labyrinth. And I heard he’s not great around people outside his family.

29. Perhaps it’s best to leave that fox alone in the woods.

Funny how they’re wearing a leather jacket. Wonder where they got that from.

30. It would be a mistake to ignore these furry girls.

They’re also wearing dresses that come best with their fur. So sweet.

31. Get a load of this red dragon.

Doesn’t hurt he has spikes on his knees. Though I don’t see the practically. Then again, it’s just a costume.

32. Might want to take a look at this horned cat’s long tail.

Yes, mix and match critters is at play here. Still, wonder how this cat gets around dragging that thing.

33. You’ll certainly know it if you ran into this bright tiger.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy sells highlighters when not in his furry costume. Then again, he may wear it on the job.

34. This big horned sheep is all ready for battle.

Then again, this sheep might be some kind of sorcerer or something. But I know what they use those horns for.

35. That goat sure has long horns.

Well, at least this person dresses as a bipedal goat. But I’d sure wouldn’t want to be on the horns’ receiving end.

36. Never thought this snow leopard would whip their sword out.

Bet you wouldn’t want to mess with this furry badass. Else you may learn the hard way.

37. This wadling osprey is slow to take off the ground.

Kind of reminds me of a bird of prey I saw in a cartoon. Was it Fern Gully?

38. How about a jump onto a fluffy bed?

Because any dog likes a nice soft bed. Though a furry in this pose is kind of freaky.

39. This bunny always enjoys a colorful sweater.

Love the hoodie jacket. Very colorful with rainbow sleeves and pockets. That rabbit’s got style.

40. Get a load of this foxy selfie.

Kind of reminds you of the selfies you might see on online dating profiles. Though this girl is more of a vixen.

41. Want to play fetch?

Not sure to drive the point with a ball in your mouth. Seriously, this is just freaky.

42. Nobody could resist purple fur in the winter time.

What the hell is this dog wearing? Is that a swimsuit? Well, at least there’s a fur suit underneath.

43. No dog wants anything more than a large juicy piece of meat.

Well, a plush steak will do. After all, this green dog only plays a role during the furry convention.

44. How about a shirtless leopard pic?

Then again, you can probably get away with this. Looks more freaky but in a different way.

45. Seems like this dog can really strike a pose.

Costume seems like it’s modeled after a real dog. Australian cattle dog, perhaps? Nice fur though.

46. These deer antlers come with white tips.

Bet it’s a reindeer. Though this guy is most likely brown in the back.

47. This blue dog has a star in their hands.

Well, you have to like the blue fur. But as I have to say, furries are a weird bunch.

48. This guy looks a bit husky.

Though chances are you wouldn’t see him pulling a sled. Yet, it won’t stop him from trying.

49. Nothing makes fur fun like some blue designs.

You have to wonder why people dress in animal costumes. It just seems to defy all explanation for me.

50. With this fox, just act casual.

Well, just a fox head and some baggy clothes. What more can you want?

51. This Canadian cat has a pair of high horns.

And this guy has the maple leaf flag on their belt to show nationality. Not sure why the costume includes horns.

52. This bunny knows the way of the samurai.

This one has pants and armor to boot. Too bad he didn’t bring a katana. Bet the convention center has a weapons policy.

53. May I introduce you to Lemonade the Angel Dragon?

Yes, many of these furries have original characters to their costumes. I know it’s weird. But I don’t understand it either.

54. Seems like this vixen can be kinky at Christmas.

Here she is in a Santa dress and leather corset, boots, and gloves. Guess this is for a Christmas card.

55. This black and white dog is jumping for joy.

Well, this guy isn’t as flashy as some of the other dogs. But I hope they don’t hit the water.

56. This blue dog can’t help but show off their long spiky tail.

Also has some yellow spikes on their ears. Looks good in jeans and a shirt.

57. “How do you like my portrait?”

Well, it’s more of a stylized likeness. But it’s better than what I could’ve drawn.

58. Hope you run into this friendly grizzly in the park.

Don’t worry. He won’t steal your picnic basket. Oh, well, if he’s not hungry.

59. With these two dogs, it’s pure puppy love.

One is a green dog holding the bag. The other is a white dog with flowers in her ears and a scarf around her neck.

60. This tough deer is all leathered for action.

Though isn’t leather made from deer. Oh, wait, they make it from cows nowadays. Still, freaky.

61. This vixen steps out in a sexy dress.

Well, she might have a certain type of outfit. But she certainly looks quite fabulous in it, as far as some furries are concerned.

62. Someone has to be top dog around here.

Guess this is a German shepherd. Though you won’t find him sniffing around any time soon.

63. Sonny Pup can’t help himself sometimes.

He even has a nice collar. But outside a furry convention, you’d freak out if you run into him.

64. Cacti never wants to be hugged. So don’t.

You see how freaky this furry subculture can be? Yes, this guy is Cacti. Don’t ask me.

65. This white dog can’t leave without wearing her pink dress.

Okay, that’s kind of strange. I don’t know what to think of this. Seriously, she’s freaking me out.

66. A yellow goat has to carry a red fan.

I bet this guy fancies himself a samurai. Though it just seems a bit creepy to me.

67. It takes a lot to maintain long fur.

And I’m not sure how this person take care of their costume. But some might find it amazing.

68. Looks like this cat has an evil plan.

This guy seems like a character from something. I’m not sure where though.

69. This dark horse always uses the latest Mane and Tail.

And this horse poses for a picture like a model. Show off.

70. These two are just foxing around.

Yes, dance at the water fountain. Then tell me how it was like to fall into the water. Sucks, right?

71. Seems like this dog decided to go casual.

Well, when in doubt, casual is where to go. Though the fur costume makes it a bit more awkward.

72. A zebra always has to know how to dress.

Though the stripes and plaid kind of clash. Seriously, a zebra should just bare it all out.

73. Bet you’d never get a load of this pink dragon.

This costume consists of fur and scales. Like either would go together save on an armadillo.

74. You can always love a dog in bright yellow.

He also has bright green paws and a blue bandanna. Can see him from several miles away.

75. Now that is one funky rabbit.

The bunny even has their ears pierced. But your eyes would be sore looking at this one.

76. This blue feline always enjoys the winter.

Though they don’t seem to be perfectly camouflaged. Though the coat’s kind of cool.

77. Someone’s feeling batty today.

But at least this bat doesn’t suck blood or eat bugs. Also has a nice medal around neck.

78. Ever saw a rainbow dog before?

Neither have I. But you’d probably see a dog playing with a balloon.

79. Rainbow sleeves never go out of style.

Nor do they need to go with a shirt. Because we all need rainbows in our lives.

80. This griffin always wears their heart on their chest.

This one even has small wings to go with their white body. But they stand proud.

The Fastened World of Button Craft

count-your-buttons-day1-e1422383778870

Whether to fasten your clothing or just to make you look sharp, buttons have been made from almost every possible material imaginable. In 1918, the US government made an extensive survey on the international button market listing buttons made of vegetable ivory, metal, glass, galalith, silk, linen, cotton-covered crochet, lead, snap fasteners, glass, enamel, rubber, buckhorn, wood, horn, bone, leather, paper, pressed cardboard, mother-of-pearl, celluloid, porcelain, composition, tin, zinc, xylonite, stone, cloth-covered wooden forms, and papier-mâché. And they’ve been on almost every article of clothing imaginable like shirts, dresses, pants, shoes, jackets, coats, skirts, and even bags, wallets, and purses if you can count the last two. Also, they’ve been around a very long time in history as buttons and button type fasteners have been found in the Indus Valley Civilization, Bronze Age China, and Ancient Rome. But the functional buttons we know today were invented in 13th century Germany. As we all know, buttons can fall off or get lost from time to time. Then there are people who have so many loose buttons that they’re not sure what to do with them. Nevertheless, you’ll find buttons used on Pinterest for almost every known craft project imaginable. Some buttons are used to create pictures. Some to decorate lamps and furniture. However the case, here I bring you an assortment of them for your own reading pleasure.

  1. This buttoned family appears well fastened.

    Well, it’s a familial display like a stick figure family on one’s car. And this one has a bunch of boys.A buttoned garden should have all kinds of flowers.

    2. A buttoned garden should of all kinds of flowers.

Here we have buttoned flowers of all shapes and sizes. Though none seem to have leaves.

3. A buttoned tree is perfect for two lovebirds on as spring.

Though a swing won’t make an adequate nest. Also, it seems like autumn. Shouldn’t these two be flying south?

4. For a tractor, nothing runs like a Deere.

Because a Deere is one of the most recognizable tractors around. But have you ever seen a button version? I think not.

5. A salt shaker makes an excellent fastened bouquet.

I see this one is for a wedding. But you have to admire how these match the pearls.

6. You should see the kind of leaves you’ll find on a buttoned tree.

While most trees have green leaves, this one has leaves of all kinds. Because why not?

7. This button couple is very attached to one another.

Of course, these button sculptures wouldn’t be possible with wires to make them 3 dimensional. Still, I prefer the button pictures anyway.

8. Buttoned flowers look splendid in a vase.

These flowers even have their own petals of various designs. So lovely.

9. Anyone in Paris has to enjoy a buttoned Eiffel Tower.

Because the Eiffel Tower is pretty much the symbol of Paris, France. But they also have other famous landmarks, too.

10. A rainbow of buttons can always give you a smile on a rainy day.

But I’m sure most of these buttons come from a craft store. But it’s still quite beautiful.

Well, these napkins don’t use as many buttons. But the concept is quite clever.

14. A painted Christmas tree can be resplendent with button ornaments.

You’d almost think they were painted on. But you’d be wrong. Still, it’s beautiful.

15. With button designs, it doesn’t matter what cloth you use.

Almost makes you think it’s a nebula. But it can be based on some acid trip for all you know.

Though this one uses buttons of all kinds of brown and black. So it’s not exactly a black cat.

17. For you pirate-minded folks, this buttoned skull and crossbones should suit your fancy.

Yes, the buttons may not be all of one size. But at least it bears a good resemblance.

18. Hope you appreciate some flowers from this dinosaur.

Guess this is for a little kid’s room. Yet, not sure how a dino can hold things with its tail. Then again, dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years.

19. If you liked The Very Hungry Caterpillar, then you’ll love this button picture.

Well, it’s a classic children’s book about a caterpillar that eats a lot. Still, the illustration is iconic.

20. For you maritime fans, may this one send you anchors away.

Seems easy to configure and uses all one color. But best if it’s sewn on white canvas.

21. Even unconventional buttons can have their own decorative value.

Never saw buttons like these before. Wonder if they were used solely for the pillow. Because that would make more sense.

22. Seems like this button tree has some degree of greenery.

Yes, but in various shades. Wonder if it’s a birch tree, too. Because the bark seems light.

23. For button flower leaves, may I suggest beads?

Though these don’t seem to be conventional flowers. Then again, it probably shouldn’t matter much.

Well, as long as the buttons are under a glass panel. But it’s lovely and adorable nonetheless.

After all, you have to admire its big eyes that seem all happy to see you. Nevertheless, this is certainly cute as a button.

28. Never thought I’d find a rainbow heart on a rock before.

Yes, it’s another rainbow heart. But this one has a different configuration and it’s on a rock.

Though no matter what season the tree is in, the branches seem quite bare to me. Also, the winter one isn’t suppose to have leaves.

30. This cardinal looks dignified perching on a branch.

Helps if its buttons are sewn on a burlap pillow. Perfect for rustic settings.

Actually they’re kind of freaking looking. But they’re made from buttons. So hence the pun.

Yes, I know I have a lot of button trees on here. But they’re a common motif. Also, this one has a whole set of leaves.

38. How about a tree with rainbow leaves?

Now that would be something I’d want to see. Unfortunately, trees don’t work that way. But you can always put rainbow buttons as leaves.

39. Button wildflowers look best in a field.

Almost thought these flowers were painted on. But they look fantastic.

40. Now that is a fantastic colored rooster.

Well, more colorful than the last rooster I put on. Love the tail feathers.

41. Hope this buttoned treble brings music to your ears.

I guess the bass clef wasn’t as elegant as this one. But it sure looks magnificent in black and white.

42. Nothing can make you resist this buttoned fox.

Not because it has a bushy tail and a head larger than its body. Still, it’s adorable.

43. A buttoned butterfly should have vibrant wings.

Even if most real butterflies actually don’t. Because why go with a dowdy monarch when you can have this?

44. Nighttime wild flowers are always well fastened near a lake.

Well, it’s a painting that uses buttons in such a scene. Love the button moon and flowers.

45. With these 2 buttoned glasses, please celebrate responsibly.

Wonder if this was used for a wedding or something. Still, it seems a bit flat.

51. There’s nothing like this button flag from the US of A.

Though I’m sure most of these are made in China. Because most buttons are.

52. With enough buttons you can decorate a flower pot.

Best if you put them in a mosaic while it’s still clay. Or glue them on if the case may be.

53. A button tree almost sways in the autumn breeze.

And I see that some of them are already falling off. Because that’s what leaves do in a fall gust of wind.

Well, it’s an unconventional color. But it certainly looks great on a wall.

65. With a button globe, you’d feel like traveling the world.

But don’t use this one to find countries. Because it’s in black and white and is only for show.

66. As on Up, adventure is out there.

Yes, it’s another Up house button display. But this one has a lot more buttons and it’s not used as a frame.

67. You might want to get a hold of this white owl.

Well, this isn’t the cutesy face owl. More of a shape. But it’s quite lovely in its own way nonetheless.

68. Seems like the colors change with every stripe.

Well, as you see on this heart anyway. But the background and button colors don’t match for a reason.

69. These button princess dresses are a tale as old as time.

Consists of Cinderella, Tiana, Belle, and Aurora. And they’re in blue, green, yellow, and pink respectively.

Not sure what’s this supposed to be. Probably based on some acid trip.

75. Hope you enjoy this button wind chime.

Though I’m not really sure what kind of sound it would make. But at least it looks pretty.

76. There’s nothing like seeing a flamingo on the beach.

Though flamingos are beautiful creatures, they tend to be emblems of tackiness. Thanks to it being immortalized in lawn ornaments.

77. This elephant came with balloons.

This is for a baby, by the way. But yes, it’s quite adorable.

78. Now that’s a very regal fox.

Interesting it has a button with 8 holes. Not sure how that’s even possible.

87. Buttons always look great around a mirror frame.

Though I’m not sure how many these are actually buttons. But I wouldn’t mind having this.

88. Now that’s a regal buck.

As with the owl, it’s more of a silhouette. But it’s one of great bearing, especially with the antlers.

89. Nothing should give you a hoot like this buttoned owl.

Yes, owls with large eyes are adorable. Also like the purple wings, too. So cute.

90. With this tree, you can watch the seasons.

Yes, it’s another 4 seasons button tree. And yes, at least the limbs get it right.

I’m sure Little Mermaid would like this one. Though Ariel is certainly not my favorite Disney princess though.

92. This buttoned sunflower is just what you need for summer days.

Well, it’s certainly vibrant with yellow flowers in imitation of the sun. But it’s not in season at the moment.

The Great Wide Whimsical World of Dr. Seuss Costumes

794768-cat-in-the-hat

With their rhyming schemes, illogical logic, fantastical buildings, nonsensical vocabulary, and spectacular illustrations, the works of Dr. Seuss have entertained generations of children for 80 years with And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. Since then, Dr. Seuss would write more than 60 books which would sell over 600 million copies and be translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death. They’ve also spawned numerous adaptations such as 11 TV specials, 4 feature films, 2 Broadway musicals, and 4 TV shows. Many of these books have become literary classics for the ages like The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who!, If I Ran the Zoo, Fox in Socks, Hop on Pop, I Had Trouble Getting to Solla Sollew, The Lorax, The Battle Butter Book, and Oh, the Places You’ll Go. Born Theodore Seuss Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, he adopted the name “Dr. Seuss” during his days at Dartmouth and Oxford, the latter from which he dropped out from to work as an illustrator and cartoonist for Vanity Fair, Life, and other publications. Though to be fair, he adopted the name “Dr. Seuss” during his Dartmouth days in the 1920s so he can continue working as editor-in-chief for The Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern under the administration’s nose. Because they caught him drinking gin in his room with 9 of his buddies and told him to resign from all extracurricular activities, including the magazine. Yet, he also worked as an illustrator for Standard Oil’s advertising campaigns and a political cartoonist for the New York newspaper PM. Nevertheless, Dr. Seuss’s books surely belong to a world of their own. Though he never had kids of his home and kind of hated them, his kids’ books are still being read to this day.

image-w1280

Since Dr. Seuss’s work is so significant in children’s literature, the National Education Association has adopted his birthday March 2, as Read Across the America Day. And it’s not unusual to see many elementary school teachers dress up in Dr. Seuss costumes or decorate their rooms to fit into Dr. Seuss’s world of fantastical whimsy. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you an assortment of Dr. Seuss costumes by his fans of all ages.

  1. As you can see, you’ll find plenty of fish in the sea.

Well, these seem simple enough with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Unfortunately, the Star Trek version is Gold Shirt, Blue Shirt, Red Shirt Dead Shirt.

2. You can’t stop until you have 10 apples on top.

I’m not familiar with this book. Guess it’s one of the Dr. Seuss’s more obscure works.

3. You can’t celebrate Christmas without looking like the latest thing in Whoville.

Nevertheless, I may not be a fan of fashion magazines. But I’d certainly would love to see what one in Whoville looks like. Also, like the hair.

4. For a simpler costume, may I suggest Daisy Head Mayzie?

Never heard of this book either. Then again, it was originally published in 1995, 4 years after Dr. Seuss died.

5. Horton always insists on keeping his word because an an elephant is always faithful 100%.

This is from Horton Hatches the Egg where he agrees to sit on the egg for an irresponsible bird name Mayzie as she takes a trip to Palm Beach. Yet, the Horton Hears a Who costume is far more common.

6. “I am the Lorax and I speak for the trees.”

Too bad the Once-ler didn’t listen to him and turned the Truffula forest into a wasteland out of greed. Still, this is a cute costume.

7. How about try some green eggs and ham?

Yes, Sam I Am is certainly a popular costume. However, though harmless in the Seuss world, nobody should eat green eggs and ham, which can make you vomit.

8. Nobody can resist this star-bellied Sneetch.

However, know that this sneetch has a star on its belly to exude its racial superiority over the bare-bellied ones. Because star-bellied sneetches are racist.

9. Would you like green eggs and ham?

Yes, it’s another Sam I Am costume. And yes, it has a fork in his green eggs and ham.

10. Looks like she has a wocket in her pocket.

That’s from a book about strange creatures living in a boy’s house. Still, this is adorable.

11. You better listen to the Lorax and not cut Truffula Trees for thneeds.

Because the Lorax doesn’t mess around. Too bad the Oncler is more concerned with growing his business to even care.

12. I bet this little Grinch wants to steal Christmas.

He even has a stuffed dog with reindeer antlers. Love the green fur.

13. Thidwick, the Big-Hearted Moose always has room on his antlers.

Though the creatures residing on his head are basically taking advantage of him. Still, this a Seuss costume you don’t normally see.

14. Even the Grinch can’t resist this little Cindylou Who.

This one just consists of a pink shirt, a cute hairstyle, and black pipe cleaners. So adorable.

15. The Lorax loves hanging out with the Bar-ba-loots and the Once-ler.

Though keep in mind, the Once-ler never shows his face. Still, these are cute.

16. Now this is a literal Cat in the Hat.

Though she’s probably one of the cats who come out of the Cat in the Hat’s hat. Yet, it’s surely an inventive costume.

17. Up on Mount Crumpet, Max the Grinch’s only friend.

Even has an antler on his head. Nevertheless, this is a pretty simple costume to make.

18. As we all know the Cat in the Hat is accompanied by Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Well, I had to put in the Cat in the Hat at some point. After all, it’s Dr. Seuss’s most famous book.

19. There’s something fishy about this little girl.

I have to admit this is quite clever. Like how it just consists of fish on a yellow dress.

20. Horton will always try to preserve Whoville since a person’s a person, no matter how small.

Here’s the Horton Hears a Who costume. This one just consists of ears, T-shirt, and an air vent pipe.

21. The Cat in the Hat never leaves without the Things.

Helps if the Cat in the Hat has his blue umbrella. Still, the things are so sweet.

22. These things were born to teach.

Yes, these are elementary school teachers dressed as Thing 1 and Thing 2. And yes, they didn’t use any blue hair.

23. These Truffula trees will never leave their Lorax or Bar-ba-loot behind.

Well, the Truffala trees look easy for the parents. Hope they don’t see the Oncler any time soon.

24. Have you ever seen a fox in socks?

Nice she has the book with her. Still, Fox in Socks doesn’t really have much of a plot since it’s a beginner book.

25. Hope you enjoy this green eggs and ham.

In the Seuss world, green eggs and ham is mostly harmless. In the real world, such a dish needs thrown out since it can cause trichinosis.

26. Dr. Seuss is always a hit for the whole family.

Consists of the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, the Lorax, and the Fish in the Bowl. Like how they used the wagon.

27. Wearing socks on your limbs is always foxy.

Yes, it’s another fox in socks. But this one has bigger ears and a shorter tail.

28. My, that’s a beautiful Truffula tree.

This one has a pink tuff and a long striped dress. Hope she doesn’t run into the Oncler anytime soon.

29. Don’t mess with the Lorax or the Truffula trees.

Even has a Truffula tree to carry. Like the fuzzy yellow whiskers. Brilliant.

30. The fish in the bowl is always a voice of reason.

Well, at least in the cartoon. Then again, it might be a different Dr. Seuss fish.

31. Wouldn’t any girl want to have a daisy on her head?

Sure it’s another Daisy Head Mayzie. But I guess it’s an easier costume to do.

32. There’s a lot to love with this Lorax family.

Well, this is more from the CGI movie since a couple of the characters aren’t in the original book. Also, we only see the Once-ler’s hands.

33. You’re never too old for Fox in Socks.

Then again, she’s probably a teacher. But this fox costume doesn’t seem to require much.

34. You’ll find a lot of things in this family.

There’s even a Thing Mom. So who’s the Thing Dad? Maybe I don’t want to think about it.

35. This fuzzy little Lorax just wants you to stop exploiting Truffula trees.

Well, the Lorax is furry and has a fuzzy mustache. So this kind of sticks.

36. Here we have Sam I Am with green eggs and ham.

Helps if the green eggs and ham are on a skillet. Though they wouldn’t pass health inspection.

37. Nothing pleases like a happy star-bellied sneetch.

Except having to integrate with a bare-bellied sneetch. Yet, this is a clever costume.

38. Seems like this family really takes to Dr. Seuss on Halloween.

Consists of the Grinch, a Star-Bellied Sneetch, Cat in the Hat, Cindylou Who, and Things 1 and 2. So sweet.

39. Yertle the Turtle seeks to rule all turtle kind.

By the way, Yertle the Turtle is a stand-in for Adolf Hitler. He makes the other turtles stand up so he can see further and expand his kingdom.

40. The Cat in the Hat always knows where it’s at.

Still, while he might be a fun guy, he can show up without warning. Also, doesn’t seem to care most of the time.

41. How about some green eggs to go with that ham?

That’s a rather inventive costume. Still, kids, don’t eat green eggs and ham. It’s unsanitary and could make you deathly ill.

42. Celebrate Christmas with Cindylou Who and the Grinch.

Well, these are adult costumes. But hope the Grinch doesn’t steal your Christmas. Oh, wait, he can’t.

43. A black cat should always have a long striped hat and a red bow tie.
