Cat Vampire

cat vampire

This is probably why you don’t hear too many stories of feline vampirism…

Cat vampire. Cashing on on the vampire craze. Possibly a little late, I think the kids these days are into, what, archery? Death sports? One Direction? Who knows. I’m not making a One Direction comic.

True fact: in its early stages, this comic was very different and entitled Snail Vampire, and was about a snail who is also a vampire. Both versions are terrible, but this one is worse. Enjoy.

Abdul Is Not A Name!


Cap’s being all gentlemanly and then Hawkeye appears leaping through the eye with a wisecrack.Oh Hawkeye, never stop being awesome! 
[Taken from The Ultimates 02 #12]

See, not an asshole. Ok Clint is being a bit ridiculous here but his family are dead and he has been tortured by this point.
Cap is just being a gent’.

Disregard the content of this, yeah sure the idea is that Captain America is trying to be a nice guy to the terrorist super hero or something (I don’t read the Ultimates so I don’t know what is going on).

The guys name Abdul Al-Rahman that’s not a real name!!!! Abdul means servant of, it’s actually “Abd” the “Ul” part is actually a prefix for the next word and just means “The”, Abdulrahman is a name it means the servant of  “Al-Rahman” or The “Rahman”; Al-Rahman being one of the 99 names of God meaning the merciful. The name Abdulrahman means servant of God, Abdul Al-Rahman means The The servant of god.


Sometimes Abdul is used as a a short form of Abdullah, literally Abd-Allah servant of Allah, servant of God. But not many people would use it like that, and they wouldn’t use a shortened version of their first name if  they were then going to say their family name.

Just because it sounds Arabic doesn’t make it okay! It irks anyone who speaks the language and enrages them, especially since you aren’t strictly supposed to use Abdul as a prefix for anything other than one of the names of God. Some people name their children Abdul-Rasool, servant of the prophet, but that is frowned upon and considered blasphemy in most circles…

Captain America Shield Bag + Super Hero Swim Suits

Captain America, shield round bag, purse with adjustable strap, costume, cosplay, Marvel comics

If this Captain America doesn’t make feel patriotic then you probably aren’t American (I’m not and it doesn’t make me feel patriotic, that is all the evidence I have to go on). I imagine women going out and fighting crime with this thing… I wonder if it comes back to you if you throw it…

If that’s not your cup of tea how about these super hero inspired swim suits by Splish?

There’s even ones for the Guys!

I very much doubt that they are officially licensed as the Aquaman trunks are labeled as being “Fish Dude”… The Wonder Woman suit is “Awesome Girl” Captain America is “Big Star” and the Aquaman womans swimsuit is “Fishchick” They range in price from $29.95 for the trunks to $49.95 for the swimsuits.

Sew It Like You Mean It Dress Comic Strip Dress + Comic Strip Leggings

I’ll try not to post any more dresses today, I seem to post a few too many for my liking but I had to post this comic strip dress from ModCloth if only to give me a reason to post these leggings from BlackMilk Which unsurprisingly for BlackMilk don’t actually appear on their website:

Marie Antoinette TARDIS Dress


What do you do when you oreder fabric to make a Marie Antoinette dress but you get the wrong colour? Particularly if that colour happens to be TARDIS blue? I don’t follow the cosplay scene but apparently Kelldar is a big name in it. She’s made a lovely TARDIS/Marie Antoinette crossover dress, you can even see inside the TARDIS!

Here it is again with a guy in a TARDIS suit photo bombing her:

I know what you like and this photo by lesather (Flickr) probably falls into that category. It’s from Chicago TARDIS 2010 a Doctor Who convention in Chicago. Here is another photo from the set.

DIY Star Wars Bike Helmet

DIY Star Wars R2D2 Helmet

A few weeks ago I posted an R2D2 bike helmet, it was pretty cool, but sometimes you don’t always have the money to buy an off the shelf item like that,  luckily for you Jen from Clever Girl has posted a how to guide to make your own custom R2D2 Helmet.

As she says herself  it’s not exactly rocket science, but it’s still pretty cool, I’ve quoted the steps below, including her encounter with a cheeky arachnid….

First, I sand-papered the crap out of an old helmet that Philadelphia Scooters kindly provided. I even Tom Sawyered Steve into sandpapering but then got jealous and demanded he give it back so that I could do it myself.
Then I primed and sprayed it with a silver spray paint.

The next step was labor-intensive. I outlined all the shapes with tape. It involved a lot of measuring, cursing circles for being so round, and wishing I had kept my protractor and compass from high school.
From there it was kind of a breeze. I just spray painted the blue on. As you can see, we had other fun things going on; that’s an empty canned chile can in the foreground, and the ever-delicious Michelob Ultra by my foot. It’s always a party at Jenn’s house.
Then I almost walked into this thing on our back deck:

Needless to say, that was EXTREMELY distracting (not just the horrifying part or the talking spider part, but also the, “holy shit, look at that amazingly perfect spider web; we totally have to spend the better part of an hour trying to take a perfect picture of it in the dark” part).
That was okay, though, because it gave the blue time to dry so I could do this:
Looks satisfying, right? It totally was about 23.87 times more satisfying than it looks in these pictures. Next up were the little details:
Next, my handy friend Jon Hauptman used his super awesome saw to cut a PVC pipe down for the doo-dads. It was totally Tim Allen’s Tool Time up in that joint. The lighting gadget, on the other hand, is of my own design and is such super top secret technology that the military is currently trying to buy the patent off me to use for interstellar space travel… oh wait, we don’t do the space thing anymore. Aww.
Knowing what it’s made of wouldn’t help you, though, because it requires 1.21 gigawatts, so… you know… good luck with that.
The final step was giving it about 374 cans of clear coat. I think if I learned anything from this project, it’s that nothing (except cakes) can suffer from too many layers of clear coat. When it was done I wore it around the house until it was time for bed… and then I wore it to bed.
