So here’s something new. According to Kotaku, “In the last twenty-four hours, it’s become somewhat of a thing online in Japan to put hair scrunchies on figures. You see, the scrunchies look like dresses! The trend apparently began yesterday, after a 2ch user used a scrunchie to give a bikini wearing figurine a skirt. Since then, it’s morphed into giving any figure a skirt.” I can’t believe I never thought of this before. Though to be fair, all my scrunchies are really stretched out these days. They’d probably only fit the Hulk.READ MORE

You might have this wild idea that Xenomorphs and Predators are mortal enemies. Not true. Pedro T Predator (aka Mark) is a cosplayer from the UK who spends a lot of time hanging out with Abi T Xeno, your friendly neighborhood Alien cosplayer. Anyone can stage a fight but can anyone make these two look adorable together? Take a look for yourself.

The Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY recently held a show called “The Gang Is All Here,” which featured some great teams from pop-culture. Next up is “Alternate Ending,” where artists take some of our favorite films and either change the ending or add a scene to completely alter the ending. Over 50 artists will take part in the new show, which is co-curated with Silver Screen Society and opens this Friday at the gallery. Works that don’t sell out at the opening will go on sale December 15 at 12pm eastern. Take a look.

Ever wondered what unlikely opponents Halo and Predator would be like if they dropped their usual intensity and just, like, hung out? At game night? Doing chores? Well, us either, but that doesn’t lessen how fun it turns out to be to watch them do just that in this video. The best part’s towards the end, so be sure to watch the whole thing.
