Actual Great Moments in De-Evolution: Overpriced Max SuitHipsters everywhere are probably peeing their pants in anticipation for Spike Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are film, based on the classic story by Maurice Sendak. And if tight jeans and American Apparel shirts weren't enough, these fans can now dress up as the lead character, Max, in this furry costume from Opening Ceremony.

Here's the problem. This exclusive furry bodysuit (with removable tail) costs $610. Yeah, really.

You see, Sendak's tale was about embracing the magic of childhood and individualism. Bad behavior doesn't necessarily lead to punishment; it also allows kids to use their creativity to the fullest.

Max doesn't play with expensive toys and he doesn't run away from a fancy lifestyle. Where The Wild Things Are is a simple tale about an angry boy with a large imagination.

So why would Opening Ceremony charge people over $600 to be like Max? 

We get it. It's a fancy hipster clothing line. But their overpriced Max-inspired designs completely miss the point behind Where The Wild Things Are. Max, according to them, is all about consumerism, label names and superficiality.

And that's why this costume is this week's Actual Great Moment in Devolution.

PS. If you see anyone lined up for a WTWTA screening wearing this, feel free to accidentally drop your soda all over their furry suit.

Health Packs Over Here! No...Really.

The next time you encounter a horde of zombies or a crazy witch in your path, you can now fight for survival with confidence, thanks to these real health packs inspired by Left 4 Dead on Etsy. Though they may not contain actual miraculous health-boosting pills (PILLS HERE!) or mysterious life-saving bandages, these first aid kits are pretty friggin cool.

Plus, it's almost Halloween, which gives you the perfect non-embarrassing and non-nerd convention reason to cosplay your favorite zombie killing game! Someone's even selling Zoey's red jacket. Bring it on, zombies!

Lego House Officially Destroyed!

Lego House Officially Destroyed!

Remember when Alison Haislip reported about James May's Lego House from the BBC series Toy Stories being demolished? Well, sadly, it happened and Gizmodo has the photographic proof.

Not everything will be going to waste, though. All the remaining bricks will be donated to charity. Habitat for Humanity, perhaps?

And this goes without being said, but it looks crazy fun to take down a giant Lego creation with a hammer.

Ride 'em RODEM Wheelchairs

Ride 'em RODEM Wheelchairs

If there was anything left to reinvent, a wheelchair probably wouldn't cross your mind. I mean, come on. It's got a chair and two four wheels. What more could you do with it?

Japan (as always) thought otherwise with their new RODEM, a new wheelchair designed so people can now straddle their chairs like a cushioned scooter bike and maneuver around the world with a joystick and all-wheel drive. Hmm, someone's been playing too many videogames.

Riding this around definitely looks more fun, especially when you're wearing your favorite gray flannel pajamas.

Keyboard Cat Paper Craft Time

Moye
Posted August 25, 2009 - By Moye Ishimoto

The Great American Keyboard Cat Competition may be long over, and the art show at Metldown Comics is gone, but Keyboard Cat art will always live on! 

You can put together your own Keyboard Cat art with this paper cut-out tutorial from Tubbypaws. They even included this handy video above to help you cut, fold and paste the cat together. It looks a bit complicated, but we know that you AOTS fans out there have such nimble fingers from all that videogaming and Interneting that you do. Good luck!
