Things We Saw Today: Leather Armor Corsets For You To Drool Over

I’m probably never going to own one of these leather corsets by Andrew Kanounov, and that makes me sad. io9 has more pictures if you’re feeling masochistic.

  • In case you haven’t been keeping up with the drama surrounding publishing industry figure Sean Fodera: He was quoted in a Daily Dot article saying less-than-pleasant things about diversity in sci-fi publishing, including comparing author Mary Robinette Kowal to a dog. He then threatened to sue everyone who linked the post for libel. John Scalzi has something to say to him about it.
  • It’s been a long while since we first heard that Bryan Fuller wants to make a Pushing Daisies musical and movie, and it looks like he’s still at it. ”I’ve had conversations very recently with Barry Sonnenfeld about financing a film, and with Kristin Chenoweth and Warner Brothers about developing a stage musical,” said Fuller to Broadway World. For the love of God, let this happen!

This The Lego Movie nail art by The Nailasaurus is awesome. (Fashionably Geek)

  • John Henson, son of Jim and occasional Muppets performer, has passed away of a heart attack. He was only 48. (Los Angeles Times)
  • Toy News International’s photoset of superheroine figures at last weekend’s American International Toy Fair was really, really heavy on butt shots, as you can see here. Ew. After an outcry on Twitter, the photoset has been altered to be way less creepy.

Speaking of toys, this Days of Future Past promo pic makes James McAvoy look like he’s a living action figure. Put down the Photoshop! (Digital Spy)

    That picture of James McAvoy looks strangely like Gerard Butler.

  • Lady Commentariat

    And here I was thinking he looked a little like a grizzled Wil Wheaton in that poster.

    Oh, and if you want an affordable leather corset (in comparison to the amazing ones up there), check out Artemis Leathers. I really like mine.

    Pushing Daisies! Yes! Never enough Pushing Daisies. :)

    Never enough indeed. It’s always good to hear news about Pushing Daisies and its impending return. I’ll need to make some fan art this weekend.

    Goodness, that corset is beautiful. I can imagine so many skirts and layers that would compliment it…

    I also doubt I’m the only one to notice Sean Fodera’s name is just a minor switcharoo from Sean Fedora. It’d explain the attitude.

    The first time I saw those corsets on tumblr I couldn’t decide if they were leather or sculpted wood. Gorgeous, but undoubtedly way out of my price range.

    The latest SFWA debacle is disappointing. Never heard of Fodera before, but there were a few familiar names who were clearly too busy swinging their socks about to do much in the way of thinking (and thank you, Terry Pratchett, for the socks analogy).

    If what I read was correct, John Henson was the voice of Sweetums? He was one of my favorites! I’m very sorry to hear of his loss and my condolences go to his family and friends. Only 48. How terrible.

  • Amourah

    Uh, pretty sure I *need* that corset. For, like, battles and stuff.

  • Brittany K

    I read Fodera as Fedora and I think that pretty much sums it up.

    Spider-Woman’s toy makes me legitimately angry. Like, it’s so close to being a cool pose and a good sculpt, but just…stretching, broken spine, butt out, on tippy-toes, what is that even.

    I’d totally like a cool legit Spider-Woman figure. Even if it was sexy. Just so long as it’s not “sexy.”

  • Anonymous

    Just went and looked at the spiderwoman figure and… ugh. Do the people who make these even know where joints are in the human body?

  • Andi Montgomery

    Could you fix the top link so it links to the story on The Frisky instead of just their main page? Thanks :)

  • Laura Truxillo

    Who needs joints when she’s got boo-TAY!
