Things We Saw Today: Happy Birthday, Dick Van Dyke!

Dick Van Dyke turns 90 today! The actor, who is most famous from roles in movies like Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and of course, The Dick Van Dyke Show, celebrated his birthday with an event that included a chimney sweep flash mob and a live singalong.

This geisha Leia cosplay by Hendo Art is a stunning reinterpretation on a classic look of the character, and the fact that all of this is handmade makes it even more impressive. (via GeekTyrant)

  • Women in Saudi Arabia voted yesterday for the first time in the country’s history (Saudi Arabia had actually been the last country in the world that had not previously allowed women to vote). (via Jezebel)
  • A K-Pop group was detained at an LA airport after being mistaken for sex workers when U.S. customs officials became concerned about the costumes and props they had packed in their luggage. (via RocketNews24)
