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

WIN_20180824_10_07_21_Pro

After much delay, I now start on my college sports posts. As the school year begins so does college football while college basketball begins sometime later which will peak at March Madness. In my area, while pretty much everyone in Western Pennsylvania roots for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Yet, come the college football games, you’ll find plenty of factions in regards to Division I sports. Some root for the Pitt Panthers. Some go for the Penn State Nittany Lions. And some support the West Virginia Mountaineers. Like their pro counterparts, you’ll find plenty of sports fans who go all out for their teams. So much so that they show up to the game in their full regalia to ridiculous proportions. They may paint their face and/or put on some crazy costume to stand out in a crowd. While some of these people have such a noteworthy presence that they’re seen as superfans. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of college sports fans.

 

  1. Keep an eye on the blue man behind you.

He’s just a fan of the Florida International University Panthers. And he’s cheering them on during their homecoming game.

2. Georgia Bulldogs fans always go all out with spikes and braids.

Still, I highly doubt those braids are real. Yet, I wouldn’t want to be near those spiked shoulder pads.

3. Seems like these are really rolling in the tide.

Yet, it’s very disturbing that the University of Alabama named their team after an ecosystem destroying algae. But they call it the Crimson Tide.

4. Be all painted for the University of Central Florida.

One is painted gold with weird hair. The other is painted black with a hat.

5. He’s all striped for Kansas.

And no, he’s not wearing a shirt. That red and blue is body paint, my friends. And he wears a mask to hide his identity from his folks.

6. Nothing shows your support for the Syracuse Orange like an orange clown fro.

He’s even wearing Mardi Gras beads to match. Yet, don’t ask why their mascot is an orange.

7. Paint yourself in black for the Georgia Bulldogs.

Okay, this is pretty racist since it involves blackface and grass skirts. Though I know it’s not their intention. They’re just dumb sports fans who know nothing about racial sensitivity.

8. This man is ready to Boiler Up for Purdue.

He has a Boilermaker hair and a golden lei. Not what you’d expect in Indiana.

9. Marvel superheroes always support Arizona State.

Well, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Spider Man do at least. Yet, would you want them attend a game at your college? Probably not.

He wears a Tide box with toilet paper at both ends. Also sports a cape for Alabama.

Not sure if they’re hats or wigs. But you have to like the sunglasses and cape look here.

Wonder what kind of hat he’s wearing. Is that a crow? Looks like it.

Though the coats seem to remind me of Cruella de Vil for some reason. But these women aren’t keen on killing puppies. At least I hope so.

54. These Bama fans roll Tide in their white suits.

Well, they have Crimson Tide stuff on their suits. And they top it all off with houndsooth hats.

55. Even Santa Claus roots for the Crimson Tide

Yet, how he manages to make it to games from the North Pole is beyond me. Also, I don’t think he’s natty in a houndsooth hat.

Believe it or not, he’s not from Syracuse but Clemson. But I understand why you may be mistaken.

57. Diamond pants are all the rage at Clemson.

He even sports mutton chops and wears an snazzy orange hat. Not sure about the coveralls though.

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

116441061.zewNjvBr

When I usually do the NFL posts, I generally move on to the college sports. However, since the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival opened on August 18 this year, I had to change gears with these costumes. Of course, these Renaissance Festivals have less to do with history and more to do with entertainment. The costumes aren’t authentic since they mainly consist of a mishmash of medieval to Baroque era fashions along with fantasy and mythology. While the festival itself, is about as overpriced and PG oriented that’s fun for the whole family. Indeed, you may have jousting, but it’s not as violent or injury prone as the real thing. A French king died from a jousting accident during the 1500s. Henry VIII suffered a serious injury in one that physically screwed him up for the rest of his life. There’s music and dance as well as period inaccurate food. Seriously, turkey legs weren’t Renaissance era cuisine since turkeys are American animals. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you another treasury of Renaissance Festival costumes.

  1. They say black is rather slimming.

Kind of reminds me of something you’d see from Game of Thrones. Though much of her outfit requires much lacing.

2. Any noble lady would appear stunning in blue at the jousting grounds.

She even has her own mug on her. But you have to admire her amazing sleeves.

3. Someone’s in the mood to play ball.

Though I doubt if it’s made out of rubber. Because they didn’t have much of a way to produce it during Renaissance times.

4. Behold, a lady archer out for the hunt.

She carries a quiver of arrows and wears an elegant blue cape. She also keeps a horn around her belt.

5. A creamy dress should always come with pearls.

I’m sure the pearls are fake. Yet, at least the guy’s outfit matches his boots.

6. Best not to trust this fearsome pirate.

He’s wearing rather exquisite jewelry on his neck and fingers. Plus, he seems to have his eye on some treasure.

7. You don’t want to face this noble sword maiden.

She has a lovely red jacket and leather bodies. But go near her or she’ll rip you to shreds.

8. This lass brought her own ride to the fair.

And she has her horse dressed for the occasion as well. And I’m sure it’ll leave plenty of droppings behind.

9. This old wizard prefers to dress in long green robes.

He also carries a staff and wears an old brown hat. He even sports the beard.

10. You best not mess with these pirate lasses.

And yes, two of them wear corsets. One even has a flowing skirt.

11. Here she entered masked and anonymous.

She carries a bow and arrows as well as all clad in leather. Watch your back.

12. I guess the cleric isn’t paying attention to the jester.

He’s just either quietly at prayer or plotting something. As the jester begins his merriment.

13. A fair maiden brims with radiance in red.

She also has a gold pattern underdress to match. But you have to love the long red sleeves.

14. Peacock blue will always impress.

She wears braids to keep her blonde locks in place. Got to love the gold decoration.

15. When it comes to style, some couples seem to match.

Though I really wouldn’t go for the color and pattern myself. Still, they appear quite fancy.

16. A girl with pointy ears always looks pretty in bright blue.

She’s even had her face painted. Nonetheless, her dress is quite lovely.

17. With his bow and arrow, he’s a huntsman to be reckoned with.

He’s even got a longbow. And yes, it can fire arrows at a longer distance than its conventional counterpart.

18. A lady should have an air of elegance in a long draping dress.

Her collar is even decked in floral gold designs. And indeed, she is magnificent.

19. Seems like we have a rather demonic presence here.

And indeed, you’d have a hell of a time with them. But why risk it?

20. She knows her own way around a sword.

Though you wouldn’t want to be near her rapier. For she could slash you to shreds.

21. My, fancy to run into this pirate lass.

She wears a long white shirt with a leather corset. And yes, she’s decked in jewels.

22. A lady can always carry her own in black.

Her dress has gold trim. And her sleeves drape to her skirt.

23. A lovely wench should always put on the right bodice.

She also wears a wide straw hat to match. And it’s decked in bright feathers.

24. You don’t need to feel small in peasant garb.

She wears a leather belt and makes a toast. Not quite flashy but tasteful.

25. Want to hear a fairy play her song?

Not sure what she sounds like on her flute. But she does have stellar wings.

26. I’m guessing this couple is from Germany.

He’s dressed as a German huntsman. She’s clad as a German barmaid.

27. With peasant kids, always keep it simple.

And yes, they’re clad in smocks and dresses. So cute.

28. These guys are in the autumn spirit.

One even appears to have rock hard abs. Nonetheless, Like the antler and leaf crown.

29. A noble knight never needs to be flashy.

He just wears a mail shirt and a gray tunic. She just dons a chemise and a red dress.

32. Pirate girls always know how to have fun.

All wear their tricorn hats with their skirts. Please don’t mess with them.

33. Careful if you go near the dreaded pirate captain.

Indeed, he certainly looks smashing. But he’ll make you walk the plank if he could.

34. Even small fairies must be respected.

She has a green bodice and a pink skirt. Almost like she’s a pixie wearing a flower.

35. As this lass wears a mask, no one will know her.

She wears a green mask and a garland of flowers on her head. Yet you have to like her laced corset.

36. Would you trust your child with a creature like this?

I’m sure this monster is harmless. But it does have the potential to scare people who don’t understand.

37. A noble woman should always have a sense of style.

Sure her dress is patterned like one’s drapery. But she flaunts it for all to see.

38. With an outfit like that, you’d think she was picked up from a deserted island.

I’m sure she’s dressed as some raider. Though her outfit is generous with the fringe.

39. When you’re at the Renaissance Festival at 11 and have to go to a Star Wars convention at 3.

Well, I guess Padme’s queen outfit can fit in. Nonetheless, you have to like the kilts on these Stormtroopers.

40. Best you not trust this enchantress in the woods.

She has a horn on her flower garland. And her dress is in a shiny periwinkle.

41. Behold, a seasonal satyr in all his glory.

Okay, he’s probably not a satyr. But get a load of his hat and armor. Not to mention, how he stands in magnificence.

42. A Renaissance dress pattern should always stand out.

Though her dress seems more fitting for a table cloth. Yet, she’s enjoying the parade.

43. You’d wonder where this fairy will fly to next.

She wears a simple dress. While her wings shimmer in the sun.

44. Sometimes you have to go all out with a hat.

And yes, her hat is a giant nest of feathers. Hope you don’t get too close to her.

45. Looks like someone has stumbled into another time.

Well, that’s Dr. Who. But if he actually was in the Renaissance, the streets would smell like crap and everyone would be dirty.

46. Who could guess this fairy hiding in the bushes?

She’s in a green and purple outfit with green wings. But you must watch your back since fairies are unpredictable in fairy stories.

47. Apparently, she’s quite and adventurous lass.

Well, you have a lot of women wearing costumes with short skirts. Yet, in the Renaissance, this would’ve been a fashion no-no.

48. A pirate lass should always sport an impressive hat.

She also wears pants and boots. And her corset is laced with red string.

49. With Scottish kilts, it’s like father, like son.

And they’re both wearing the same family plaid. Hope the kid is potty trained. Because I don’t want to know what they wear underneath.

50. In this outfit, this fairy struts like a peacock.

Her dress has a feathery chest, too. And her wings match the skirt.

51. Care for a stroll around the grounds?

She wears a white and flower dress while carrying a lacy parasol. So best you cover puddles as she goes by.

52. Want to share a pint?

Okay, she’s drinking from a plastic dixie cup. But you have to love the flower garland she’s wearing.

53. All this man wants to do is frolic in the forest.

Here he stands in all his bountiful glory. His crown of antlers also consists of fruits and leaves.

54. Want to see a falconry demonstration?

Falconry is a way of training a bird of prey to find food. Yet, here I think the bird’s wings are clipped.

55. Seems like this fairy is all blue.

She has a blue face with blue wings. She also wears a blue dress.

56. Dressing one’s best must be a top priority.

They’re both wearing beige. Yet, the woman’s hat is quite charming.

57. Purple is always a resplendent color.

However, during the Renaissance, purple was only reserved for royalty. Mostly because the dye for it was so expensive and rare.

58. It always helps to spread your wings.

And spread her wings she certainly does. But don’t expect her to fly with them.

59. A red dress will always make one appear regal.

Helps if she’s wearing a neat hat to match. Yet, her dress is trimmed with gold.

60. Apparently, she went with some animal cultists in the woods and never came back.

Yes, there are furries at Renaissance festivals. But not sure what I think about the tiger with antlers.

61. A small dress doesn’t always have to be plain.

She wears a black smock with a fancy white dress. And she’s quite adorable in it.

62. A black cloak should have the same pattern as the dress.

And she seems quite matronly in it as well. Still, wouldn’t want to be in her way.

63. Behold, the dragon has come for merrymaking.

Well, I guess dragons would want to have a good time once in awhile. But this is just simply ridiculous.

64. A knight should always enjoy a good time with his fair lady.

Though he seems a bit old to be on the battlefield. Yet, I do like the woman’s hat.

65. She may be a warrior woman, but her armor is all mail.

However, I don’t think this outfit would be very practical in fight. And the reasons are obvious.

66. A woman must always travel with her white knight.

I think these are Star Wars mashups. Since one seems like a medieval Stormtrooper. The other resembles one of Jabba’s sex slaves.

67. A huntsman always ventures alone.

He only carries his bow and his quiver of arrows. But he’s all clad in leather for protection.

68. This mermaid is a real fish out of water.

Okay, she’s just wearing a dress. But I see no seashell bra.

71. One must always wear a dress fit for a queen.

She wears a simple black dress with a silver stomacher. And topped with a crown to match.

72. This wizard shows up with a camera.

Indeed, a camera is a strange object for an old wizard from the 16th century. So are sunglasses.

73. Apparently, Queen Elizabeth I is back from the dead.

Though she normally wore white makeup like that. Despite that it was based in lead.

74. Care to help a weary traveler?

After all, she’s wearing a wide-brimmed hat and headscarf. She also has her belongings in ye olde fanny pack.

75. Here’s a satyr of the forest.

She has a tall leaf staff and a belt with a leaf. Yet, you don’t want to get under her hooves.

76. This service dog is here to entertain you.

Since it’s dressed as a jester. Though I don’t think it likes wearing that ridiculous hat.

77. Lady pirates should always be well-dressed.

One is in a long dress and a tricorn hat. The other wears a long coat dress and feather hat.

78. Sometimes all you need is the right combination.

79. This highlander came with his swordsman and fairy.

Well, he’s a dad with kids. But you can’t help but adore this.

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

WIN_20180811_11_38_32_Pro

Since NFL pre-season has started up again, it’s time for my August NFL posts which I do every year. While August may seem like a slow month since there’s no holidays, it’s actually one of my busier months with NFL and school looming along with the Renaissance Festival. Given that the NFL has gained a lot of notoriety with the anthem protests, CTE, pinkwashing, domestic violence and sexual assault handling, and so much more. And yet, people still watch the games and buy all the crap they sell. After all, it’s a great American tradition that people can’t get enough of since they love to cheer for the teams. Yet, I’m not interested in the play since it bores me despite that I played clarinet in marching band for 8 years. However, I do take great fascination with how some fans go all out at the game to support their team. I mean you have to see some of the most ridiculous costumes on them that make any Comic Con geek seem normal. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of crazy NFL fan costumes. Enjoy.

 

  1. Green men always support the Green Bay Packers.

Well, they’ve painted their faces green and their facial hair yellow. Though I do like the fringe on the left guy’s jacket.

2. Unfortunately, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a Cleveland Browns fan.

Of course, he’s sad since his team doesn’t usually win. Because they’re the Cleveland Browns.

3. Someone’s hair is all charged up.

Actually, I’m not sure if it’s his hair or a hat. While the woman he’s with has a mask.

4. Like Buffalo Bills? Say hello to the Buffalo Bunnies!

The Buffalo Bills are another team that doesn’t win games. Yet, I would pay to see these guys any day.

5. You can always see a man in orange from a mile away.

Then again, he’s a Denver Broncos fan who’d get lost in sea of that color. Still, like his hat.

6. This Texan never leaves home without a sombrero and luchador mask.

Well, he’s a Houston Texans fan. But you couldn’t even guess who he is.

7. Sombreros should always come with a face mask.

However, since they’re Oakland Raiders fans, this is quite tame. Since Raiders fans are among some the most flamboyant.

8. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, there’s at least something Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton can agree on.

Those are just paper cutouts of them used by Arizona Cardinals fans. Nonetheless, this is hilarious.

9. Apparently, the Raiders madness starts young.

This kid is in skull makeup with spikes on his arms. His costume will get more ridiculous as he gets older.

10. These guys support their team without their shirts.

They even have Bills logo painted on their chest. And wear blue buffalo hats. Okay, bison hats.

11. Is that a hat of Big Ben on his head?

Must’ve been for a game in London. The NFL seems to hold one there once every year.

12. These Eagles fans always know how to spread their wings.

They’re even dressed like Eagles. At least with the hats and feathered sleeves.

13. Guess this Santa’s helper is a Browns’ fan.

Still, you have to admire his team loyalty given the Browns’ track record. Yet the costume is ridiculous.

14. Batman is in the stands with his bandito friend.

These are Buffalo Bills fans as you see. Yet, I think Batman would be more of a Giants and Jets fan. Since Gotham is New York City.

15. Hope you can bear it with this Seahawks fan.

Lo and behold, he’s wearing a bear hat with Skittles on its mouth. Not sure about the significance.

16. These Redskins fans have something to toot about at their game.

Yes, they seem like normal fans in their jerseys. Except that one of them has a giant red football covering a sousaphone.

17. In Pittsburgh, Steeler fandom always starts in the delivery room.

Magee Women’s Hospital has a tradition with covering newborns with Terrible Towels. Though it won’t be long till this little one watches a Steeler game for the first time.

18. A striped beard is always a must for a Bengals fan.

Though you have to admire his effort. Yet, this is quite outlandish if you ask me.

19. This Raiders fan has her share of skulls on her chains.

Her hat even has swords on top. But yes, the outfit is kind of disturbing if you’re not familiar with Raiders fans.

20. “Wanna see my chains?”

And I see he’s with his daughter for the tailgate party. So don’t mind the silver skull mask and mohawk.

21. Guess this is a Chargers white out game.

Yet, these guys seem to take “white out” a bit too far. But at least their hard hats match.

22. For his Bills, this man bares all.

Wonder if he’s in the Polar Bear Club. Cause everyone else around him is wearing a coat and he’s not even wearing a shirt.

23. These superheroes are super fans of the New York Giants.

They even wear blue hair to match their outfits. And yes, they’re super powered up for the game.

24. This Dallas Cowboy fan doesn’t think well of the refs on Thanksgiving.

Though I really like the turkey hat. Actually kind of amusing if you ask me.

25. This Detroit Lions fan is ready for a turkey anytime.

Wonder if he’s wearing that hat for a Thanksgiving game. Then again, wonder why he’d be at the stadium on Thanksgiving.

26. This Atlanta Falcons showgirl always comes in full feathers.

She even wears a red wig and jeweled body suit. But she always tries to get an audience from the stands.

27. Didn’t know that Rumpelstiltskin was a Denver Broncos fan.

Well, his pointy ears seem like a dead giveaway here. Though his beard is much shorter than I thought it would be.

28. Seems like this Raiders fan is doing a voodoo dance of some sort.

Yeah, she may look pretty scary. But I’m sure she won’t harm anyone, Just a very big Raiders fan.

29. This Bills fans is all blue in the horns.

Though his team barely wins given the Bills’ track record. Still, at least it’s not as outlandish as some of the other costumes on this post.

30. These red Texans always back the defense.

They even wear horns on their red cowboy hats. Yet, they intend to support their team.

31. This skeleton face Browns’ fan will haunt your dreams.

If the Browns don’t win, he’ll sure to make the players’ lives a nightmare. Unfortunately, this happens quite often during the season.

32. This Stormtrooper supports his New England Patriots all the way.

Here he is in front of a flag in the background. But always finds time to serve his Galactic Empire.

33. This man wears his support for the Broncos on his hair.

Basically has “Go Broncos” on his mohawk. I know it’s batshit crazy. But it’s a free country.

34. Man, those are really large pendants.

Wonder if those Texan logos make their necks sore. But so far, they don’t seem to mind.

35. This bony skeleton man’s head is spiked for the Raiders.

Raiders fans can have a lot of costumes suited better for Halloween. Yet, I have to admit, he’s certainly intimidating.

36. Seems like I’ve found a real Kansas City Chief.

Well, fire chief anyway. Still, I don’t think he’ll be handy if there’s a fire in the stadium.

37. Speaking of firemen, I don’t think this Raider has much interest to extinguish the flames.

Mostly since he’s wearing skulls and spikes. Also, he sports some villainous makeup and a goatee.

38. In Chicago, the bear eats the cheese.

Though I don’t think cheeses bleed. Yet, I understand the Bears and Packers are intense rivals.

39. Seems like Darth Maul has a message for the New Orleans Saints.

Still, I don’t know what he means by that. Since I live in Western PA and don’t pay attention to sports.

40. These Rams fans plead their team to return.

They’re even wearing horned hats. And yes, the Rams came back to Los Angeles.

41. And so shall it sit on the helmet evermore.

You can guess this is a Ravens fan. Not sure how he gets through the doorway.

42. This Ravens fan is always up for the fun.

Here he wears a jester hat with his Mardi Gras beads. Not sure about the makeup but at least he keeps it from being blackface.

43. This Bills fan is bummed in a blue buffalo headdress.

What do you expect, the Bills aren’t a winning team in the NFL. Still, the headdress seems straight out of Dr. Seuss.

44. These Texans fans just want to stay incognito.

Since they all have paper bags on their heads for some reason. Yet, I really don’t know anyone on these fan posts anyway.

45. While some Buffalo Bills fans have horns, these guys wear wings.

Well, Buffalo wing hats as you see. Nonetheless, this is pretty clever.

46. Seems like green hair is all the rage in Seattle.

He wears a mohawk and goatee. She has a pair of green braids.

47. All hail the mighty Cheese King!

Okay, he’s just a wildly dressed Green Bay Packers fans. Yet, I’m sure he’s going to Comic Con afterwards.

48. This Raiders fan has a skull face you won’t forget.

Wonder if it’s for Day of the Dead. Then again, any Raiders game seems like a Day of the Dead celebration.

49. Apparently, a coconut bra and grass skirt is all you need for a Steelers game.

Either she doesn’t live in Pittsburgh or she’s at a pre-season game. Cause it’s not suited for increment weather.

50. You shouldn’t underestimate this Texans fan’s chains.

He even has a boa for extra touch for some reason. Still, what’s with the large pendant with eyes?

51. This Tennessee Titans fan comes with titan heroics.

Here he is wearing a luchador mask and standing like a superhero. Though he’s only here to support his team.

52. Seems like this king has an epic proclamation.

Okay, he’s just a Dallas Cowboys fan. And no, they aren’t America’s team and never will be!

53. This Baltimore Ravens fan is fired up for the game.

He’s even wearing a fireman’s hat. Yet, this getup seems tame compared to the others.

54. You can’t be a Seahawks fan without a boa and cowboy hat.

Though she also decorates her hat with pins and Mardi Gras beads. Also, paints her face.

55. Seems like Philadelphia has gone to the dogs.

Well, he’s wearing a dog mask. But I hear he’s a good boy.

56. These Oaktown Pirates look for a hearty good time.

Compared to the other Raider fans, this is tame. And yet, they hang out in a bar.

57. I guess these are real San Francisco 49ers.

Well, the team was named after these miners during the Gold Rush. Yet, many of them didn’t really find much gold.

58. Seems like everything’s frozen over in Green Bay.

Actually, that’s just his outfit. But indeed, he appears covered in ice.

59. Bird Lady always dresses in her best for the Atlanta Falcons.

And she wears red with boas for good measure. She even wears a red wig.

60. Apparently, the jet matches the jersey.

Yet, this New York Jets fan doesn’t seem to have a good time. Yet, the jet hat is kind of hilarious.

61. This white dog always likes to party.

Yes, that’s another dog head fan for the Philadelphia Eagles. Yet, this one seems to resemble a poodle.

62. Don’t leave home without your Seahawks feather headdress.

Sure the feathers may be fake. But they’re nonetheless ridiculous as can be.

63. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Amazing Soltar.

Okay, I’m not sure who this guy is. But I know he’s an Eagles fan and his outfit is ridiculous.

64. This rooster roots for the Seattle Seahawks.

Then again, seahawks are known to eat fish. Still, chickens usually aren’t blue and green.

65. Seems like Beetlejuice has a wife.

Okay, he actually doesn’t. This couple is just wearing the same costume to support the Raiders.

66. A true Seahawks fan wears a green mohawk and beard.

And yes, his hairstyle is quite amazing. He also painted his face blue, too.

67. This Giants fan brings all his own plates.

Well, license plates, anyway. And yes, they go down to outside the stands.

68. Of course, the Buffalo Bills fans can match in the outlandish hair department.

Here they sit on the stands with their large logo pendants and buffalo hats. Even wear feather boas to match.

69. There’s more than one kind of cheese hat.

There are cheese fire and police hats as well as a crowns. One even has a belt. Also like the beards.

70. Got a Carolina Panther on your hat?

He even wears blue and black makeup. But the panther is plush by the way.

71. A man’s beard should be in his NFL team colors.

And I see this guy is a Redskins fan. Yet, at least he wears a bandana to match. Oh, wait, that’s his real hair.

72. Apparently, Darth Vader is on the Arizona Cardinals side of the Force.

He even has his helmet painted in Cardinals colors. Don’t insult his costume or he’ll force choke you.

73. A Miami Dolphins fans should always wear a fin.

He even has a fin shield to protect himself. Still, he kind of looks pretty silly.

And she doesn’t have much to show for it other than a Raiders logo on her boobs. But at least she’s wearing a jacket.

Seems like the Joker is a New Orleans Saints fan. Not surprising since he could fit right in at a Mardi Gras parade.

80. Apparently, Wendell wasn’t happy with his Chiefs.

Yeah, I don’t get with the red pigtails. Guess it goes well with the outfit.

81. This old super 49ers fan loves taking to his banjo.

Not sure if superhero outfits and banjos go together. Then again, whatever works.

82. Didn’t know that Optimis Prime was an Indianapolis Colts fan.

Seems to have Colts stuff all over his room and himself. Well, Transformers can be sports fans, too.

83. With Raiders fans, it’s all in the family.

They’re just wearing the logos. And yes, the baby’s wearing one, too.

84. It always helps to have a snazzy hat.

He’s a limo driver by the way and supports his Denver Broncos. But the hat must’ve cost a fortune.

85. Hat Man always turns out for his team.

The top hat’s crocheted for his Denver Broncos. He also has an orange and blue jacket to match.

96. Did that Patriots fan just lose his head?

Must be some kind of Halloween costume. Then again, it’s kind of creepy.

The Lunchtime World of Lunch Boxes

Itzy-Ritzy-Bento.jpg

Whether for school or work, there are some people who may buy lunch at the cafeteria or a nearby restaurant. While others prefer to pack their own due to the food being bad, cost efficiency, convenience, or that a lunch place isn’t around. In any case, most packers will bring a lunch in some sort of bag. Sure you may have those who use containers or brown paper bags. Yet other packers prefer to have bag they can reuse and keep their lunch fresh till their break while some might want a bag that will make a personal statement. Well, that’s where lunch boxes come in. Growing up in the 1990s, I had lunchboxes with Barbie and Lisa Frank in elementary school. Yet, when I was older, I used a lunch cooler and then a lunch bag with 2 compartments that you could easily wash. Nevertheless, when I go on Google, I often see some unusual lunch box styles and ones with images that make me scratch my head. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of crazy lunch boxes the likes of which you’ve never seen before.

 

  1. Perhaps you might want to knit your own lunch box.

Though I don’t think it would keep your lunch well insulated from the elements. Let’s just say wool doesn’t do well in the rain.

2. I guess you might use this for your last lunch.

Since it depicts Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. Not sure if that belongs on lunch box but whatever.

3.  I’m sure you wouldn’t plug your guitar in this amplifier.

Though I wonder if this lunch box comes with a guitar of similar size. Probably not.

4. “Time for lunch, Jesse.”

Yes, I know this is designed like a school lunch box. But it’s not one for schoolchildren at all.

5. If you need containers, this lunch box has you covered.

Still, 3 containers is a bit much for me. Then again, some people might have a lot of leftovers.

6. This Exorcist lunch box comes in handy whenever the demon of hunger possesses you.

I don’t doubt that The Exorcist was popular in the 1970s. But the demon puking scene makes you want to lose your lunch. Also, it’s not appropriate for school age children.

7. If you’re a great lover of meat, this Meat Parade lunchbox is for you.

It’s from a humor website, by the way. But singing sausage and bacon bits might bring looks of confusion among peers.

8. This lunch box is perfect for Taco Tuesdays.

It’s a taco truck lunch box. But alas, it won’t always have tacos on Tuesdays.

9. This lunch box is packed with ammo.

Though this is an ammo box meant for food, not bullets. Still, it seems durable to withstand the elements.

10. If you remember Lidsville, you’d probably wish you had this lunch box.

Lidsville was a terrifying children’s show in the 1970. It’s about a guy who’s trapped in a land of giant hats with a craving for human flesh, apparently.

11. Keep your lunch well insulated with this artifact tote.

It’s basically a more expensive cloth variant of the bag lunch. And it comes with a leather strap fastener.

12. No Cryptid fan should go without a Bigfoot lunch box.

Again, this one is from a humor site. Though this lunch box might make other people wonder if you’re looking for a creature that most likely doesn’t exist.

13. Keep your food away from zombies with this lunch box.

Though it wouldn’t be just a lunch box during the zombie apocalypse. Since you got to make food last as much as possible.

14. This lunch cooler comes solar powered with speakers.

I’m sure having a lunch box like this will make people wonder how you got the money for it. Since it comes with speakers for God’s sake.

15. No crazy cat lady should leave home without a lunch box like this.

Includes a cat with a cone. It’s also another one of those humor lunch boxes. Still, it’s funny.

16. Make your Taco Tuesdays awesome with this Deadpool lunch box.

Okay, he likes chimichangas. Still, this is a pretty awesome metal truck box.

17. If you like firefighters, you’d like this Emergency! lunch box.

This was another old show in the 1970s. Yet as Just Collecting states, “It’s also the only box we can find that clearly has a dead body on the front. Hey kids, enjoy your lunch, and don’t forget the dangers of smoke inhalation!”

18. Sometimes you just need to stack a couple of containers.

Well, this lunch box includes stackable containers, a spork, and a strap. And I’m sure you won’t be embarrassed to carry it around.

19. Sometimes your lunch containers have to look fancy.

These are fastened together by a metal frame. But at least it’s easy to clean.

20. Any kid who’s grown up in the 1970s would love to have this Bugaloos lunch box.

Yet, they’re all in bug costumes and conducted by an angry purple firefly. Clearly someone must’ve been high to come up with this design.

21. Who the hell wouldn’t want a lunch box of H.R. Pufnstuf.

Apparently, it was a show involving terrifying muppets for some reason. Those ents seem particularly the stuff of nightmares.

22. Hope you have an “eye’ for this lunch box.

Yes, it’s an eyeball lunch box, which is kind of disgusting. But at least it includes an eye chart.

23. Everyone in your family will fight over this Game of Thrones lunch box.

If a kid should bring a lunch box like that, I’m sure the teachers would have plenty of questions to ask. Since Game of Thrones is not a show for kids.

24. This Land of the Giants lunch box will induce nightmares among friends.

Guess this is another show from the 1970s. Still, the guy in glasses holding the people up is especially creepy.

25. Make lunchtime an adventure to the exciting world of metrics.

From Westword: “What it says: ‘I don’t get nearly enough math in class, so I enjoy looking at the same conversion-facts all through my lunch hour, too. It’s also fun to count the number of punches I get each day, multiply that by the number of Indian burns, titty twisters, and swirlies I receive, and then tabulate just exactly how much my life sucks on the metric scale.'”

26. Everyone should have a hangry kit nearby.

Because when some people get hungry, they get angry. Look what you see in Snickers commercials when Marcia Brady turns into Danny Trejo.

27. A would-be nurse should always carry a lunch box like this.

From Westword: “What it says: ‘I’m either very into entering the medical profession someday, or I really like playing doctor. Want to meet me behind the gym after school to find out which?'”

28. Nothing makes a great lunchbox than one depicting a bunch of people about to be devoured by a giant cat.

Okay, that’s kind of terrifying. Seriously the large white housecat’s giving me nightmares.

29. Anyone from the 1960s may fondly remember Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In.

From Westword: “What it says: ‘Hey, here’s a show my parents watch that I don’t understand! Because I’m six.'”

30. A friendly shark lunch bag is one you can really sink your teeth into.

For there is no way this teeth baring friendly fish wants to eat you. Though I wouldn’t bet on it.

31. A bicentennial lunch box really brings in the spirit of 1776.

Still, it may find newfound popularity among Hamilton fans. Despite featuring George Washington instead of Alexander Hamilton.

32. I’m sure hipsters might crave for a lunch box like this.

Yes, it’s a guitar case lunch box. And indeed, it has plenty of stickers for decoration.

33. You can keep your food within this Polaroid camera.

Unfortunately, you can’t take any pictures with it. But you can’t have everything.

34. I wouldn’t touch this lunch box if I were you.

Okay, it doesn’t have any organs for transplant. But that doesn’t mean you should check.

35. Feed your brain with these book bento boxes.

Put these on a shelf and nobody would ever guess it’s your lunch. Unless they try to open it.

36. If you loved Legos as a kid, you’ll love this lunch box.

Includes many brick containers inside. And yes, it resembles a giant brick on the exterior.

37. Keep your food inside this red gummy bear.

Even comes with its own ice pack. So you can keep your food chilled throughout the day.

38. Now you can take your lunch and communicate with dead people with this Ouija board lunch box.

But don’t be surprised if any ghosts show up during your lunch time. Since they can be a pesky inconvenience.

39. A Mr. Merlin lunch box is the stuff of magic.

From Just Collecting: “Mr, Merlin ran for one season, and featured a kid being taught wizardry by Merlin the Magician disguised as a car mechanic in San Francisco. The artists over at King Seeley captured the magic and mystery of the show by featuring an old man in a baseball cap and a teenage boy that looks like Joannie Cunningham from Happy Days. They also released it after the show was cancelled. You were better off praying your Empire Strikes Back box could survive another year.”

40. Kids would’ve loved to have a lunch box of Gentle Ben.

Really, gentle? The boy almost seems like he’s going to end up like Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant at some point.

41. Perhaps you want a sandwich box.

And yes, it’s shaped and designed like an actual sandwich. Though you can’t eat it.

42. Feel free to eat from this VW microbus.

It’s the standard model for a hippie van. Still, at least it’s portable enough to carry around.

43. In this lunch box, your meal will be read to eat anytime.

Actually, it’s more a decorative statement than anything. But it gets straight to the point.

44. Eat among the happy little trees with this Bob Ross lunch box.

After all, Bob Ross still retains his popularity since his death from cancer in the 1990s. Still, this kind of amusing.

45. Store your lunch in this vintage TV.

Sure you can’t watch anything on it. Unless you use your imagination.

46. Keep your fish sandwich chill in this bass cooler bag.

It may look like the big one that got away. But it’s a lunch bag for your catch of the day.

47. Nobody could resist a lunch bag depicting a cat on bacon.

And yes, it’s traveling through space. To be honest, many of these bags can be quite weird.

48. Keep your food on the go with this boom box lunch box.

I’m sure you can’t blast any music on it. But it nonetheless matches the metal quite nicely.

49. This watermelon lunch box is worth a slice.

Comes with a strap you can sling on your shoulder. But seems more fit for the summer.

50. Bet your lunch box doesn’t have space cats like these.

You have to wonder why they’d put cats in a nebula. Since it doesn’t make much sense to me.

51. Nobody can resist this party panda lunch bag.

This depicts a drunk panda with a Santa hat. Sure it’s not child friendly, but you can’t help but love it.

52. Behold, guinea pigs in sunglasses on pizzas from outer space.

I know this image makes no sense. And yeah, it might make people suggest you’re high on something.

53. A Rambo lunch box can be especially badass.

From Westword: “What it says: ‘Nothing is over! Nothing! Well, except maybe that point in my childhood where it’s still appropriate for me to still be carrying a lunchbox.'”

54. Bet you’ve never seen a giraffe speed demon in space.

I know this makes no sense. But it’s kind of hilarious if you see it.

55. Perhaps you might like a donut lunch box.

It even has icing and sprinkles. Includes a zipper so you can keep your food in it.

56. If you need something for hunger pains, this lunch box has you covered.

Yes, this is a medicine style lunch box. Still, it’s kind of clever if you ask me.

57. Having a cat like this on a lunch bag makes others green with envy.

This one has a cat waving an American flag and lightsaber on top of a fire snorting unicorn. Yes, I know it’s ridiculous and over the top, but it’s hilarious.

58. You’d almost think this T-Rex is jumping out at you.

Don’t worry, it’s just photoshop. That T-Rex won’t eat your sandwich though it sure seems like it.

59. Wonder what you’d pack in this NASA bag.

Depends on where you go. However, if it’s space, you can’t include alcohol or baked goods.

60. There’s nothing cooler than having your lunch in a dino case.

Has a strap to its mouth to keep it closed. And yes, you can put food in it.

61. If you love spam, you’d adore this lunch box.

Though to be fair, you should stay away from spam. Because it’s a processed meat that’s not very good for you.

62. May the odds be ever in your favor with this Hunger Games lunch box.

Are you kidding? The Hunger Games revolves around people struggling in poverty as some teenagers are forced to fight to the death, for God’s sake.

63. Any good Catholic girl should love this Flying Nun lunch box.

From Just Collecting: “Because kids love nuns, right? There is no way any kid in 1968 asked for a lunchbox based on a failing Sally Field religious sitcom. If you were given this lunchbox as a child, your parents were deliberately trying to send you a message. That message was ‘We hate you, and we’re sending you to a convent boarding school.'”

64. This TV lunch box comes with color bars.

These bars were on pre-digital color TVs. And they normally meant the station was off the air.

65. You can’t talk about 1970s by ignoring this disco lunch box.

From Just Collecting: “Disco was originally an underground music scene, born in black and Latino urban gay nightclubs across the U.S and fueled by a heady mix of cocaine and casual sex – the perfect subject for a child’s lunch box.”

66. Who could ever resist this wags n’ whiskers lunch box?

From Westword: “What it says: ‘This dog is obviously being abused, and this kitty is silently pleading you to help, help for the love of god. But you can’t, because it’s my lunchbox.'”

67. Those who remember Hee Haw may enjoy this lunch box.

From Just Collecting: “These giant, leering, middle-aged hillbilly faces were just made to be put on a children’s lunchbox. If you were at school in 1970, having a Hee-Haw lunch box really made a statement. And that statement was: ‘In about 40 year’s time, I’m going to really hate the President.'”

68. This lunch box may contain biohazardous contents.

Indeed, it warns of weird shit happening in there. So open it if you dare.

69. We all eat in a yellow submarine…

Yes, this is a yellow submarine Beatles lunch box. And it’s shaped as such.

70. Any kid in the west would love this McDonald’s lunch box from cactus country.

From Just Collecting: “We’re fairly certain this lunchbox was the inspiration for the Stephen King novel ‘It’. If there was an award for “Creepiest image of a clown most likely to come to life, reach out and try to claw your face off” then this lunchbox would be the world champion. Also, any kids who owned this box were reminded every day that their packed lunches sucked compared to a McDonalds.”

71. Perhaps a Jonathan Livingston Seagull lunch box might suit you.

From Just Collecting: “In 1973 there were two things every kid in America loved – existentialism and sea birds. So Aladdin were on to a winner with their 1973 lunchbox based on the metaphysical novella ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’, which had just been turned into a film with a soundtrack by children’s favorite Neil Diamond. A follow-up lunchbox based on ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’ was sadly cancelled, when it was discovered the company’s creative team had all suffered nervous breakdowns.”

72. Nothing is abominable like this yeti lunch box.

And it atop 2 mountain peaks. Yes, it’s weird but kind of funny.

73. Apparently, some kids might like a clown lunch box.

Okay, these are from Stephen King’s IT depicting Pennywise the Clown. Not something you’d want on a kid’s lunch box.

74. Seems like an image of Fluffy has appeared on toast.

Yes, it’s ridiculous. But I couldn’t avoid this cat in the bread box. I don’t why I find lunch boxes designed like this.

75. Got to catch lunch in this poke ball.

To be fair, it’s from a show involving animals fighting each other. But at least you can store your snacks here.

76. Stack your lunch into this little bread slice.

And it seems this bread slice is happy to oblige. She even wears a pink bow.

77. Nothing makes a lunch box like skull flowers.

Well, a colorful skull flowers. Yeah, I know it’s kind of ridiculous if you ask me.

78. There’s nothing cooler than a taco cat lunch bag.

Yes, it has a cat in a taco. I’m sure it will launch a thousand memes.

79. Apparently, it was the beauty that killed the beast.

Yes, it’s sloth climbing the skyscraper a la King Kong. After all, I posted a similar image for a shower curtain post.

80. Seems like someone has some rainbow shit on their lunch box.

Apparently, the smiling poo emoji is quite popular. And this one is amongst the rainbow.

81. If you want a state of the art picnic lunch, this tote might suit you.

Comes with a napkin and flatware with 3 sections. And only at $30 for some reason.

82. Take a break from the gym with this Nike lunch box.

Because your lunch bag should look no different from your gym bag. Except it’s smaller.

83. Care for a can of chocolate pudding?

This is from The Walking Dead. It’s a zombie show I don’t even watch. So don’t ask me about it.

84. If you like video games, try this Nintendo Gameboy lunch box.

Too bad you can’t play Mario on it. But at least you can keep a sandwich inside.

85. You can always have a nice day with this smiley face lunch box.

Comes with a strap for your shoulder. Still, best put the sandwiches in the bag.

86. Don’t forget to kiss the cook, Pinkman.

Of course, Walter White doesn’t really cook food. His specialty is crystal blue meth.

87. On this lunch bag, you’ll find a dead man on canvas.

Since there’s a coffin surrounding the guy. For he is only a silhouette.

88. A Bob Ross lunch box should have happy little trees.

Yes, it’s another Bob Ross lunch box. But at least this one actually has his famous trees from his Joy of Painting.

89. It’s all elemental in this periodic lunch.

I’m sure it’s for anyone with a hankering for chemistry. And yes, the elements spell what lunch is made of.

90. This R2-D2 lunch bag is at your service.

Because the Rebel Alliance would never have a chance without this ornery little droid. Seriously, he basically saves everyone’s ass.

91. Store your shrooms in this toadstool lunch box.

Great for anyone who doesn’t see the term fungus as an insult. Still, it’s kind of cute.

92. You’ll go back in time with this lunch box.

This from Dr. Who, by the way. Still, hope it doesn’t have any food inside from the past.

93. I’m sure this lunch box is nun too holy.

Yes, it’s another novelty lunch box. I’m sure anyone who went to Catholic school will find it funny.

94. If there’s something strange in the neighborhood, this lunch box will come in handy.

It’s inspired from one of those ghost traps from Ghostbusters. And no, I’m afraid of no ghost.

95. There’s no glorious lunch bag like one with Batman on a unicorn.

He’s even riding on alongside dolphins. Nonetheless, this is just so unlike Batman that it’s hilarious.

96. Sometimes it helps when you can fold out your lunch box.

You’d almost think this was a tray meal. Wouldn’t mind having one of those.

97. You don’t have to guess what’s in this lunch box.

Because it has the contents written on the outside. Yet, each item has a price.

98. Anyone into dark literature will adore this Edgar Allan Poe lunch box.

Though when you’re weak and weary, this will sate you evermore. Also may give you nightmares.

99. This pink monster lunch box is a scream.

Still, it’s kind of silly since it has scary blue eyes and yellow teeth. Yet not exactly in my taste.

100. Even a minion can get hungry sometimes.

This minion lunchbox has containers stacked on each other. Kind of charming in its own way.

The Anthro World of Furry Costumes (Third Edition)

2c6f32ae4eb2366ddc62ce28c89c019c

In the hot and humid atmosphere of Southwestern PA in early July, the Furries descend upon Pittsburgh for their annual Anthro Con, which is the world’s second largest convention for them. Why they’re able to withstand the hot summer heat this time of year, I have no idea. But they come from all over the place and have money to burn so Pittsburgh really doesn’t mind as long as they behave themselves. This year, the Furries are stated to bring about $7.9 million to Allegheny County which is a big boost to the area. And with that kind of cash, you really don’t care where it comes from, even if it is from people who like dressing in animal costumes. And if you go to Fernando’s Café during this weekend, you’ll find plenty of Furries hanging out. After all, they raised money to help the owner keep his business through donations during the Great Recession. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of Furries for this Anthro Con weekend.

  1. A crouching dog is always ready to rumble.

Here he is ready to fight. Best not to mess with him or he’ll rip you to shreds.

2. This fox is ready to mingle in her bright red scarf.

She has her own fluffy tail with a blue tip. And she’s not shy to show it off.

3. Of course, you might have some hell hounds here and there.

Don’t they won’t bite. They’re just hanging out at the convention.

4. Always put your best paw forward.

This dog seems happy to greet their fellow furries. And will show their blue and yellow paws.

5. Someone must’ve received a package.

And someone can’t wait to open it. Wonder what it is. Is it a brand new chew toy?

6. A few pounds of kibble, please.

Actually they seem more likely to be in the candy store. Yet, I’m not sure what this person is supposed to be.

7. Only at Anthro Con can a bunny and polar bear be friends.

Because in real life, a bear is more likely to eat the bunny. And a bunny is less likely to be purple and yellow.

8. A cool cat can always be a snappy dresser.

This one wears a green shirt and a blue polka dot scarf. And they’re all dressed and ready to go.

9. This sitting dog is all covered in tiger stripes.

He’s also wearing a shirt and pants. Seems like he’s going to a concert afterwards.

10. This dark dog sometimes loves to lay about.

And he seems ready to show his claws. So best you leave like right now.

11. I thought dogs weren’t allowed on the subway.

Don’t worry, I’m sure he’s toilet trained. Because he’s a guy in an animal costume.

12. This tiger is locked and loaded.

I’m sure the gun is a toy. But he surely looks like a badass compared to Tony the Tiger.

13. Don’t mind the dog with this cup.

He just has a red Dixie cup on his nose. Guess he really likes to party.

14. You need not fear this friendly hyena.

After all, he’s not that filthy compared to those on the Savannah. Rather, he seems quite clean and friendly.

15. This dog loves showing his claws.

Since they’re all shiny and green. And so is his tongue which is kind of gross.

16. This tiger always loves to wander in the forest.

Well, they’re wearing ragged clothes for some reason. Yet, they like pouncing on the rocks.

17. No frisky fox can resist this vixen.

After all, sexy foxes are always seen as vixens. This one is no different.

18. This cat knows how to don a sweater.

Not sure how he keeps cool during the summer. But he doesn’t look quite bad either.

19. Get a load of this colorful cat.

Yes, this colorful tiger seems straight out of a drug trip. But they just like to hang around.

20. This dog always knows how to rock.

Here he is in his furry get up. He even has his own hat for his ears to stick out.

21. This cat loves hanging by the waterside.

Though they may not want to go into the water. Since it might ruin their coat.

22. This cat has the world on a staff.

This might be a character from some video game. Then again, you have to like their sense of style.

23. Every dog needs a break now and then.

Well, we all can use a break. Furries are probably no exception.

24. Someone seems quite excited today.

Well, they’re in their pants and shirt. And they have their paws up in glee.

25. Want to give a hand to this colorful goat?

Keep in mind that a lot of these furries don’t appear in colors that conform to nature. This goat is purple with green feet and horns.

26. This blue fox wears their heart on their coat.

Well, they have hearts on their upper arms. And they seem quite modest about it.

27. Want to play some ball?

Hope you can keep up in a game of catch. Then again, it’s not a game you should play indoors.

28. This horned cat is off on an epic adventure.

And they seem rather sneaky about it if you ask me. Hope they watch the horns.

29. These loveable animals love to train for a fight.

But they’re always in a good sport about it. Yet, don’t mess with them or they will fight.

30. This dragon loves to spread their wings.

Kind of surprise you don’t see a lot of dragons at these events. Since they’re among the coolest fantasy creatures.

31. Bet you’re expecting this white tiger to drop and give twenty.

Yet, whatever the case, this tiger seem irritated about it. Not sure why, exactly.

32. How about you raise your paws for this tiger?

Sure they may seem a bit dirty. But they’re happy to smile for the camera.

33. This bird of prey has come to roost.

This bird also looks familiar. Not sure where I’d recognize them from.

34. Get a look at this friendly zebra.

Because zebras in the wild are usually too mean for domestication. Since they have to defend themselves against lions.

35. This dog always loves to receive a heart now and then.

Doesn’t hurt that she’s wearing a wig and glasses. Don’t worry, she won’t bite.

36. This wolf feels rather ambivalent about city life.

And I’m sure they’re not in Pittsburgh. Since it’s a coastal area while Pittsburgh certainly isn’t.

37. This dog always shows pride in their ears.

And they don’t mind standing for the photo either. Still, they have their unique kind of charm.

38. Who says dogs don’t have wings?

Actually, dogs don’t have wings in real life. But in furry land, an animal can have as many attributes as desired.

39. Perhaps a snowy owl may interest you.

Though this owl likes to wear clothes like they’re from a fantasy story. Not exactly sure why.

40. “I shall call him, Mini Me.”

Well, they have stuffed dog in a similar patterned scarf. So you can get the idea.

41. This spotted pooch loves to sport a long jacket.

Guess they’re on a key mission. Not sure but they’ll never say.

42. This yellow beast sports a flower necklace.

She also seems rather coy about being photographed. But her yellow fur makes her stand out.

43. This wolf loves to play in the snow.

Not sure why Pittsburgh would host Anthro Con in the winter than the summer. Weather wise, it would make more sense.

44. Who can turn down flowers from this dog?

Indeed, the roses are fake. But this dog seems quite sweet with its puppy eyes.

45. Who says a tiger can’t come in on a scooter?

This yellow and black striped tiger shows otherwise. And they seem to have a rather good time.

46. I wouldn’t go near Puss in Boots if I were you.

Because when he shows his kitty cat eyes, he’s about to attack. Since he uses them to get his enemies to drop their guard.

47. Some colorful dog would like to say hello.

They may be dining out. But that doesn’t mean they won’t turn down a photo op.

48. Didn’t know they can do hand signs with paws.

Yet, they don’t seem to mind as they salute for the camera. And wearing a multicolored scarf around their neck.

49. Who wants to give a cat a hug?

There they are dressed and in a pile of leaves. But they seem quite happy to spread out their arms.

50. Bet you’d never come across a horse like this before.

Yes, that’s a furry horse. And yes, they almost seem like they’re straight from a fantasy story.

51. You always have that one furry willing to show off their tail.

This one has a long, striped tail with bright blue stripes on it. And they’re dying to show it off.

52. This cat seems like a slave to fashion.

They’re in a sleek skirt and matching skirt. So this cat must make herself fancy.

53. Best you don’t go near this big black dog.

Yet, he seems to keep his sleek black coat impeccable. But beware of them.

54. Who says furries don’t like dancing?

This fox always knows how to do the tango. Though I wonder if they know the fox trot.

Well, their belly seems to contain blue shades. But they love to rock their coat for the picture.

56. This blue cat just wants to swing by.

They have pink and blue stripes. And they seem to like hanging around the spiral staircase.

57. This lion just wants to hang out in a tree.

Though they seem to have some spots on their coat. Not sure why that is.

58. This dog has to be in a harness.

Wonder if they’re kept on a leash. Though this dog seems friendly to me.

59. Can you give a paw to this pink cat?

She even has her own collar. And you got to love her pink spots, too.

60. This cat knows how to rock a suit.

Sure he may be a tabby. But that doesn’t mean he can dress too shabby.

61. Apparently, this fox has his pants ultimately ripped.

He even seems equipped with belts on his chest. Bet he’s on an adventure.

62. Want to play in the snow with this dragon?

Well, if you get cold, this dragon can breathe some fire. But they better not scorch a forest.

63. This brave wolf knows how to use an ax.

He’s even clad in armor for added protection. And I guess he couldn’t fit into the helmet and pants.

64. This bird has plenty to crow about.

This one has a bird spreading their wings. Wonder what kind it’s supposed to be since you have to look from the back.

65. Not sure if I want to run into this bear in the woods.

Seems like a rather realistic costume if you get my drift. Wonder how many times they get mistaken for the real thing.

66. You might want to get acquainted with this goat.

And they seem rather fuzzy in their white coat. Not to mention how they rock the horns.

67. This white tiger just wants to lay around with the other cats.

You have to wonder what the cat is thinking. Because it may not have the slightest idea.

68. All these furries want are free hugs.

They even have free hug signs. Still, I don’t think there’s much to worry about with them.

69. Bet you wouldn’t run into to this funky goat.

They’re mostly blue and wearing a hat over the scarf. Check out those pink glasses.

70. You wouldn’t like this polar bear when they’re angry.

And it seems that this bear is on the rampage. So best to stay away from them.

71. Apparently, this buck decided to go stag.

After all, he came all by himself. But I wouldn’t lock antlers with him on a bad day.

72. This cat knows how to use the Force.

Here they sit on the couch with a purple lightsaber in hand. But they will pounce when threatened.

73. Hope you didn’t think you’d see them in this post.

Indeed this is the Pink Panther. Cue the iconic Harry Mancini music.

74. Check this fox on the bridge.

Not sure if they’re in Pittsburgh. But the city does have at least one yellow bridge.

75. Seems like these two have a kitten in their paws.

Well, the kitten is a plush toy. But these cats seem to care about each other.

76. This dog greets everyone with open paws.

They’re even wearing a shirt and shorts. And they’re wanting for a hug.

77. This black dog has a rather sneaky side.

This guy is called Zippo Wolf. And I bet they’re in Pittsburgh for the convention.

78. Lay your eyes on this blue raccoon.

They’re even wearing a gray sweat shirt. Still, hope they don’t get in your garbage.

79. This lonely kitty needs a hug.

Well, they’re pouting at this point. So now may not be a great time.

80. This dog always loves to nibble on a steak now and then.

Well, as long as it’s plush steak. But they don’t seem to mind.

Goal Worthy Soccer Fans from the FIFA World Cup

WIN_20180615_10_04_57_Pro

Okay, I know the Men’s US Soccer Team won’t be in Russia since they didn’t qualify. But Women’s US Soccer Team will qualify for theirs since they win the World Cup in their tournament almost every time.

This week marked the beginning for the 21st FIFA World Cup hosted by Russia which had rights since 2010 that was way before all the collusion, cheating, and human rights abuses. Since my country the United States didn’t qualify, this isn’t a huge deal outside diehard American soccer fans. But since its founding in 1930, the World Cup has been the most prestigious soccer tournament in the world as well as the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world, even exceeding the Olympic Games. So it’s a very huge deal. And since it’s so widely watched around the world as soccer is one of the most popular sports, you’re granted to see plenty of crazy fans since a lot of countries take the sport very seriously like you have no idea. I mean have you ever heard of soccer hooligans? They exist. You also hear all kinds of crazy stories in soccer violence that make you scratch your head. And they thought American football fans were insane. Anyway, while most of my readers are American, there are plenty of viewers from other countries. So any post I do for the World Cup is mostly for them. Now for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of crazy soccer fans and their elaborate costumes worth blowing your vuvuzela over. Enjoy.

  1. Don’t worry, Russia’s soccer fans aren’t that crazy.

Well, this guy seems friendly though he might just like large grandiose hats. Hope the other fans are all right.

2. Look out, here comes the Swiss cow brigade.

They have plush cows on their hats. And they’re even wearing shirts for Team Switzerland. Odd since I thought they’re supposed to remain neutral.

3. You can tell this soccer fan is a proud Mexican.

Since he has the image from his national flag. But he’s also showing what his country will do to its rivals in the tournament. Cue the eagle killing a snake.

4. The Russians are up and ready to rumble.

They’re all wearing armor and headdress. Though I highly doubt that the war bonnet is part of their culture. Still, they look pretty awesome.

5. Sometimes you just have to send in the shamans.

This guy is from Ghana, by the way. And I think he might be doing a ritual from his culture though I doubt it. But you never know.

6. These Japanese fans are absolutely psyched for the World Cup.

Here they’re wearing pins of the World Cup trophy. Not sure why Japanese fans would wear these outfits.

7. Ladies, may I give you some delectable soccer fans from Greece.

As you can guess these nice-looking guys are dressed up as their country’s most famous dish. You know, Greek yogurt.

8. Bet you’ve never seen a Swedish woman like her.

Okay, that’s a guy. But he’s nonetheless wearing a horned helmet with braids.

9. It’s time for the Chinese fans to get the large drums out.

Well, they may not be as crazy as the others. But they seem like they’re performing a ritual with these large drums.

10. This Brazilian is all covered in flags.

You’ll see more Brazilian fans in this post. Since soccer is absolutely huge there. And yes, this costume is ridiculous.

11. Can’t cheer for the World Cup without Christ the Redeemer.

Well, the World Cup was held in Brazil that Year. Nonetheless, this guy has a rather interesting hat.

12. You’d almost think this American soccer fan is out of this world.

Too bad he won’t be in Russia. Since the US Men’s team didn’t make it. But he rocks in blue hair.

13. Here comes the Honduran Mayan king and his court.

They all have painted faces. Yet, the guy on the far left has a funky headdress.

14. Never thought I’d see a Colombian elephant before.

Okay, this isn’t the best fan costume I’ve seen. Yet, kind of has a combination of both pathetic and terrifying.

15. If you’re from Pakistan, get a load of this hat.

Yes, he’s wearing his country on his costume. Because he cares so much about his team to look this ridiculous.

16. A Dutchman always dreams of a World Cup win.

For some reason, there are a lot of crazy Dutch fans at international sporting events. And yes, he’s wearing large glasses, a pimp hat, and an orange Hulk hand.

17. In the Netherlands, it’s not over until the fat barmaid sings.

Sure she might seem straight out of Wagner if she wore a horned Viking helmet. But this Dutch lady goes for the orange.

18. The Japanese blue frog salutes the team.

Didn’t know what this guy’s significance is. Still, wouldn’t want to run into whoever they are.

19. Seems like Dutch Air brought in a whole flight crew.

Actually they’re just fans dressed as a flight crew so their team lands on a win. But compared with other outrageous Dutch costumes, this is low key.

20. Apparently, George S. Patton has decided to show up.

God only knows what Patton would say in a World Cup soccer match. Still, you can see where the look came from.

21. Apparently, the French fans decided to dress like Vikings.

I think they’re based on Asterix cartoons, which are reputedly popular there. But don’t ask me.

22. Irish World Cup fans always go for the green.

These guys paint themselves green and wear Irish flag wigs. And yes, they’re ready to rumble.

23. Want to see a couple of Argentinian zebras make out?

I don’t get the zebra thing since Argentina is in South America. But the guy seems a bit taken aback here.

24. This Ivory Coast fan can always make an impression.

You know he’s on stilts since no guy can be that tall. But he knows how to draw a large crowd.

25. Apparently, this Brazilian warlock has decided to take a picture.

Because giving children nightmares should get in the way of enjoying a soccer game. And yes, he’s wearing that outfit for Halloween.

26. These leprechauns are urging Team Ireland make it.

However, while these Irish may dress as leprechauns doesn’t mean Americans should do so. Because they find depictions of leprechauns outside their country very offensive.

27. Seems like this Brazilian has his beard really tied.

Not sure how this guy deals with the discomfort. Then again, he’s only wearing his beard for the tournament.

28. You can’t misidentify these all-American women.

I’ve heard the idea of wrapping oneself in an American flag. But painting akin to one just takes the cake for me.

29. Check out the glasses on this Danish guy.

Yes, he’s wearing soccer glasses. Because he has Danish soccer on his mind. Not sure if he’s eating a Danish.

30. This Dutch bear has high hopes for the World cup.

I’m sure he’s in an orange bear costume with the World Cup trophy. Not sure about the significance of that.

31. You might not want to mess with this masked Japanese fan.

Yes, that mask is creepy. Though I have to admit it goes well with the hat.

32. A Brazilian lady must have a big bow at the World Cup.

And yes, the bow is green with yellow polka dots. She even ahs 2014 glasses, too.

33. Wonder who’s in the Ghana box.

Apparently, a fan who’s just as mystified. Still, I wonder how that person got out of that after the tournament.

34. These Japanese fans are looking quite blue lately.

I mean their faces are painted blue and have blue hair to match. However, they seem quite excited seeing their team play.

35. This Swiss man always loves to blow his horn.

He’s brought his trumpet and funky hat. And yes, it has 2 bright Swiss balloons.

36. An Australian fan can’t go without an antler kangaroo?

Okay, that’s pretty weird. And I see the guy wearing a mask as if he doesn’t want an embarrassment.

37. Sometimes you just have to spread your wings.

There’s one guy from Colombia whose costume is so elaborate, people just have to pose with him. And no, I don’t think he can fly.

38. With these French fans, it’s all for one and one for all.

Since they’re dresses as the Three Musketeers. With feather hats from the 17th century and all.

39. These German women are hopping mad.

What’s the deal with the bunny ears? I don’t understand it since they seem quite ridiculous.

40. This Brazilian soccer fan debuts in his new flag suit.

He even has striped tights, big glasses, and a funky hat to match. Let’s give it for this guy.

41. Best you don’t get this German devil lady angry.

Fortunately for her, the German team won in Brazil in 2014. Yet, she has braids matching the flag colors.

42. A Brazilian woman can’t show up without a tall feather hat.

Well, Brazil is known for its colorful pageantry, especially in Rio. Yet, at least her headdress sparkles.

43. What the hell are those weird Dutch guys in Mohawks doing here?

Don’t ask me. I have no idea why they have these muscled guys here. Must be a Dutch thing.

44. An Aztec Emperor should always wear the most elaborate headdress.

If his team doesn’t do well in the World Cup, then he will have his priests rip the players’ hearts out. Nonetheless, he’s also a fan of tacos.

45. Looks like this Roman soldiers gung ho for Team Italy.

By the way, Italy didn’t make it in this year’s World Cup either. So you won’t see this Roman gladiator anytime soon in Russia.

46. You’ll get a big hand from this Australian.

Helps if he’s wearing a wide hat and a flag cape. But the large hand stands out.

47. You’d be pressed not to be endeared with these Icelandic Vikings.

Indeed, Vikings never wore horned helmets. But that doesn’t stop these guys from cheering and singing.

48. Best you beware of the dreaded Colombian Tiger.

Okay, he’s more like a carefree guy with a flamboyant headdress. Love the feathers.

49. Speaking of headdresses, the Italians get theirs on.

Sure I don’t think they have anyone in the culture wear these outlandish hats. But they’re nonetheless colorful.

50. You can tell these Germans are here for the soccer.

Since they’re wearing soccer ball suits. And I’m sure they’re both filled with a lot of air.

51. Mexico is really on a Chile pickle.

Okay, this fan is wearing a Mexico pickle hat. Still, it’s kind of hilarious no matter how you look at it.

52. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Spanish Zorro.

He’s in one of those body suits with a hat and mask. But he’s all for his Spanish team.

53. This man wears a horned helmet for Team India.

Just when did the Vikings visit India? Because I never heard about that in the history books. Still, he carries the look with dignity.

54. These American guys show up to the World Cup in their star-spangled silk robes.

Well, Americans have always treasured their penchant for comfy clothes. But these guys seem to take this at a whole new level.

55. Perhaps the Dutchman would like to bang the drum.

Yes, I know he’ll probably offend Native Americans looking at this with his feather headdress war bonnet. But at least he’s not in his home country in early December.

56. A World Cup victory can always make anyone feel like a king.

Well, he’s German fan who’s probably overjoyed in Brazil. Still, got to like his royal red robes.

57. Captain America is a man on a mission.

Okay, he’s not the Captain America. But he nonetheless has the iconic shield along with the stars and stripes on his suit.

58. This South Korean likes a good cigar now and then.
