Get Down with our Costumes!

by Matthew on Monday, November 30th, 2009

Have you heard of the meme Geddan, or Get Down? Until recently, I hadn’t either.

I saw this great video of a girl dancing in our V for Vendetta costume, but at the time I didn’t really know what I was watching.

Bear with me, because this is fascinating stuff!

Geddan started in Japan a couple of years ago, when someone made a video exploiting a glitch in the Nintendo 64 game system. When the game cartridge is improperly inserted, it creates a glitch that causes the video game characters to “dance” spastically.

Soon, lots of people in Japan started making Geddan videos, all using the same song called Promise, by pop singer Kohmi Hirose.

Last year, this craze became popular in America. It’s important to note that no one can perform this dance live, it can only be done using video editing. Isn’t this interesting?

To fully understand, please watch this video by Know Your Meme. They explain and demonstrate the Geddan quite well.

I think this is so cool – especially when using our costumes! Get Down!

Yakini dressed in our Princess Tiana costume for Halloween. Doesn’t she look beautiful? Her husband Derek dressed as a prince, and her new baby was the cute little frog! These photos are so adorable.

Council Meeting Suprised by our Chicken Costume!

by Matthew on Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

A Council Meeting in Durango, CO recently had a surprise visit from someone in our chicken costume!

In the video above, courtesy of Exposure Productions, you can see a mostly empty meeting, where council members are discussing the city’s chicken laws. Apparently there’s been some debate about owning hens in residential neighborhoods.

As you can see, out of nowhere comes a person in a chicken suit! We sell this exact costume, it’s so funny to see our costumes used so creatively.

The pseudo-chicken sat patiently and rocked its head while confused councilors chuckled and looked on and attempted to continue. Several minutes later, the council went into a scheduled closed session and the chicken appropriately rose from its seat to leave. On its way out, the bird approached the dais, crouched and left an egg on the floor.

Ha! The chicken left an egg on the floor on its way out. That is so funny! Too bad we don’t get to see that in the video.

If you have something to cluck about, do it in style with a chicken costume! Costume Craze has a hen house full of chicken suits and hats – for babies, kids and grownups!

We’ll help you find the egg-zact costume you need!

This poor guy recently had an unfortunate experience while shopping for a computer at an Apple store.

So what does he do? He makes a video about it, wearing our Penguin costume! What a fun and creative way to get his point across.

Now he wants Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, to reimburse him for the $17.00 he spent on parking. How funny.

As this story goes to show, there are so many fun uses for our animal costumes. They are great year round for parties, Youtube videos, school plays… and apparently for making poignant customer complaints as well!

Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths

by Matthew on Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

What happens when the Justice League has to battle an evil version of themselves?

We’ll find out in the Spring of 2010, when Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths comes out on DVD. This is the latest animated movie from DC Entertainment, and judging by this trailer, promises to be super amazing.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League must face the Crime Syndicate, an evil Justice League from an alternate universe. In this alternate universe, Lex Luthor is a good guy!

The evil Crime Syndicate have all the same powers, and this looks like it will be the ultimate epic battle of superheroes.

Who Ya Gonna Call? Ghostbusters!

by Matthew on Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Here’s a fun clip from The X Factor, the popular singing contest show in the UK. Irish twins, John and Edward, have recently become a sensation on the show due to their fun and enthusiastic performances. Granted, they may not be the best singers in the world, but the British public loves them and they keep winning the votes.

Watch as they perform the Ghostbusters song. I’m not sure what’s up with their yellow proton packs, but they’ve got the monsters and the Ghostbusters car on stage, and they put on a pretty decent show.

Talk of a Ghostbusters 3 has been circulating fairly heavily for the last couple years. For a long time, Bill Murray refused to do another movie, but it seems that lately he’s agreed to be in a third movie if the script is good.

Here’s a recent interview from Oct. 15, 2009. It’s interesting because Murray still seems quite reluctant to appear in Ghostbusters 3. It’s all about the script. I hope they can work something out soon – we’d all love to see more Ghostbusters!


 

If you feel like doing a little Ghostbustin’ of your own, you’ve come to the right place! Costume Craze has Ghostbuster costumes in adult standard and plus sizes, guaranteed to chase the ghosts out of your neighborhood! Who ya gonna call?
