747 carrying space shuttle endeavour costume

the space shuttle got so hyped up I wanted to be it.  better yet i wanted to carry it… i’ll be the 747!
rion was “i hope i can make fear cool (sponsored by red bull)” felix baumgartner which was also a rad idea!!!
tested the costumes in weho on Halloween and they were too well received mainly because people in LA have low IQ and they are only attracted to skimpy costumes or things they recognize like cookie monster or a penis.
We only saw 1 other Felix Baumgartner, some astronauts carrying space shuttle toys… For how big a deal the space shuttle news was, I thought I would see more of that….

Grandpa’s 90th birthday celebration

90’s a big one…. that means my grandpa just missed WWI. darn.

an artistic impression of my grandparents someone made… resemblance is uncanny

all the grandkids + spouses… i have a hard time remembering everyone’s names

My grandparents love bowling. Grew up bowling with my grandpa. So Melody had this awesome idea to all be bowling pins and put on a little show during the celebration

the celebration also happened on Halloween weekend so it was a hit with the costumes and all. When I was making them a lot of people were worried they looked like KKK but i guess most old Chinese people don’t even know what KKK is so we were fine. In bowling 3 strikes you get a turkey.

I’m the turkey. I figure I can also wear this for Thanksgiving. So who’s inviting me over for thanksgiving? My grandma actually told me that they don’t do turkeys anymore…. you have to get 4 strikes and a 4 wheeler comes on screen. I suppose I could have come up with a 4 wheeler costume too. next year…

dinner was great too. every time i see this picture i salivate

Neutrogena Compounding Halloween Winning Streak

4th year in a row! we have earned our bragging rights

Been talking about doing Fast Food Gang for a couple years… finally have the right group to execute.

Jerry is a natural born Colonel Sanders and Sam was way into being the Hamburgler. I’m pretty sure he ate 4 cheeseburgers during the event under the excuse of “posing for pictures”

Victor made an excellent “Yak in the box”

Ellen was darling as Wendy

and I could not have gotten a better model for the Carl’s Jr outfit


skeletor’s rants

inspired. want to be skeletor.

let’s round up the whole gang. i wish i had more friends who want to look gross and disgusting come halloween

in case you’re interested, there are so many characters: take your pick

how about this guy?


La Chilindrina

My coworkers were all pointing at me laughing and speaking in Spanish.  I was like wtf guys..? and they were like “you remind us of someone but if we told you you would be mad”… so… it turns out to be this girl on some show.  every spanish speaking person seems to have watched this show before. Anyways, I decided to embrace it. Totally dressing like this to work tomorrow and saying to everyone “What? I have no idea what you mean cuz I don’t look like her at all??”



TRON skate

this theme was hard. no one just happens to have a futuristic bodysuit lying around.  went to target and got one of those icky micromesh workout shirts and drew something on quick with a blue sharpie.  sharpies don’t really agree with micromesh. goes on all blotchy. It looked ok from far away….

maybe i’ll dork out and wear it to the movie. I’ll leave the plate at home.

Halloween Recap #3 – Adventure Time!

PhotobucketThis is one of those dorky costumes you wear to conventions.

Finn is super easy – the only part that takes any sort of skill is the backpack which can of course be accomplished via funtimes with felt. Jake is a challenge if you don’t want to make a full on furry costume. Which is why the Jake glasses we made were a real accomplishment. so good i think cartoon network will steal the idea for Jake merch.

I saw 4 other Finns, 1 other Jake and 2 Bubblegum Princesses at the Weho street thingy. No ice kings though… This ice king I found on the internet is the best!

Mostly kids 5-10 yrs old and nerds recognized us. They did so by saying either “Adventure Time!” or “what time is it?”. I would say 90% of people didn’t know who we were and thought we were “some pokemon” or “doggie!”.
