Things We Saw Today: Little Girl’s Thundercloud Costume Is Perfect Storm of Amazing

Do you remember that glowy baby costume that made the rounds on the internet a few years ago? Apparently the kid’s a little more grown up and her taste has evolved beyond simple stick figures. Her father made her a “Princess Cumulus” costume that glows and simulates lightning. Check out the video, and make sure you stay long enough to hear her “thunder” (read: blowing raspberries).

  • The 2016 year was apparently pretty rough for Sony movies, so much so that they’re making a concerted effort to bring serious Oscar nomination consideration and attention to their raunchy food-based comedy, Sausage Party. It was the highest earning R-rated cartoon ever, so… who knows what could happen. (via The Daily Dot)
  • Speaking of movies, remember that Channing Tatum Splash remake that’s being made? The AP asked Tom Hanks, who starred in the 1984 original, if he’d be interested in joining. Hanks replied, “Why not? That’s fine! I figure if they were really going to be bold, I would come back as Allen Bauer, and I would go off with Channing Tatum.” Extra yes. (via io9)

In a dream team combination that I definitely didn’t know I needed in my life, Chuck Tingle is teaming up with Zoë Quinn to create a game based on Chuck Tingle titled Project Tingler. That dreamy sentence hereby completes my calling as a writer, so I’m retiring and I’m going to go off to do something else. Check out their Kickstarter to help them reach their $69,420.00 (nice) goal. (Video may be NSFW, depending on where you are.)

  • Microsoft has officially unveiled their very first desktop computer. The Microsoft Surface Studio starts at about $3,000 and is up for pre-order today. (via The Next Web)
  • The Museum of Modern Art in New York has just added the original emojis from 1999 to its art collection. Go and check it out in all its antiquated, pixel-y goodness. (via Buzzfeed)
