"They Might Be Giants Cosplay?"

My husband is a big fan of They Might Be Giants, as am I (as evidenced by my vanity plate.)


We both enjoyed their album Join Us and the videos posted on You Tube in answer to a contest to create a music video to the first song: Can't Keep Johnny Down. The winner is pretty funny.


HOWEVER, the one that caught our eye was one by an artist named AKAcronny






He made all the costumes himself. And so I now have a pair of bunny slippers and some neat skeleton tights. Score.He looked up a how-to on papier-mâché (mostly guys making Deadmau5 heads). We found that the fewer the layers, the more flexible and therefore less likely to crack the head was. 



Here is another video just for fun:

I was wondering what the hell those were from. If he's not a regular at anime cons he certainly seemed to fit right in.

I love that TMBG video I cant stop watching it - it should have won the competition.

It had really good effects but they didn't put any thought in to story or demonstrate any understanding of the song.
