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!

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!

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