    This is the real-life Marge Simpson makeup and hair applied by makeup artist Veronica Ershova, styled by Mikhail Kravchenko, and photographed by Alexander Khokhlov. Me? I was not involved. I mean I gladly would have been, I just wasn't asked. It might have something to do w... / Continue →

    This is a Dragon Ball Z fight imagined in real life. I dunno, if you're into Dragon Ball you might like it. I'd be lying if I told you I watched all eight minutes though, because time is money and I'm broke right now. Thankfully I'm still rich in...dammit, I've got to be ric... / Continue →

    Okay, so I'm in between doctor's appointments while the country's best (cheapest) medical teams try to figure out what the hell new disease I'm patient zeroing. Hopefully not one from eating cat shit. These are a bunch of impressive Zelda universe creatures imagined in real l... / Continue →

    This is a small series of Pokemon (Charizard, Blastoise and Venusaur) by artist Yuuki Morita that have been rendered realistically using 3-D animation/modeling programs Maya and ZBrush. If you had to choose one, which one would you pick? I would pick you. Plus I would pick y... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Mario Kart's Rainbow Road spotted in real life. It looks way less spacey than I would have imagined. It's actually disappointing. It's real though, and located on Interstate 86 in Idaho. Weird, I never though the exit to Rainbow Road would be in Idaho. Of... / Continue →

    This is the Barbie doll (right) artist Nicholay Lamm created using 3-D imaging and the Center for Disease Control's average measurements for a 19-year old woman in the United States. As you can see, she's not as tall or skinny as the real Barbie. Personally, I think she looks... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jake explaining what would happen if Superman punched you in real life. SURPRISE: basically you'd be torn apart at the molecular level in a nuclear explosion. Unless he made the mistake of punching me, in which case he'd break every bone in his hand. "Oh r... / Continue →

    This is a small series (there's three) of Adventure Time characters imagined in real life by digital sculptor Thomas Lishman. They're all pretty scary. So the next time you're thinking about how great it would be to live in cartoonland, think again. You just can't see the de... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear imagined in real life by DeviantARTist DanLuVisiArt (follow the link for a story the artist made up about Buzz that's really touching). He looks like a pretty cool dude. Also, kind of like John Hamm, who's seen me stall my car tryi... / Continue →

    This is a video of laser lover and Youtuber AnselmoFanZero showing off the Dead Space plasma cutter replica he made. For the record, I've never played Dead Space because it's rated M for Mature and my mom says I'm anything but. Still, a pretty impressive build and the lasers ... / Continue →

    I spy a hoverboard. First Dragon Ball moves in real life, then Vader force-choking, and now some Quidditch in real life pictures (although some just look like witches). It's weird how the internet works, isn't it? It's like, cyclical. Just one big turd-recycling series of t... / Continue →

    Not to be outdone by a bunch of Japanese schoolgirls (although still totally getting outdone by a bunch of Japanese schoolgirls), this is a series of shots of people force-choking (aka 'Vadering') their friends in real life. You won't catch me posing for any sort of picture li... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Rated RR shooting watermelons with Crysis 3 inspired exploding arrows. He made a couple different versions, one with the explosive in the arrow's tip, and another one that doesn't explode until the arrow has nearly pierced the melon to its fletching... / Continue →

    This is a series of comic book-y illustrations by Greg Guillemin called The Secret Life Of Superheroes. It showcases a bunch of superheros doing regular people stuff. Things like brushing their teeth, picking their noses, scratching their asses, stuffing their bras, boozing, ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of dudes playing real life Mario Kart thanks to power ups fitted with RFID tags and modified karts that react appropriately (read: crash) when they read a nearby tag. I don't know about you, but count me in. "Put some clothes on first." But I've do... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of Lamp (aka Pinokio), an interactive desk lamp fitted with six servos, a webcam and some custom Arduino software that resembles the Pixar lamp. He'll look around for you, follow your face, beg for attention, pay attention so sounds, and even turn... / Continue →

    This is an upgraded version of Kenji Ishida's transforming R/C car (previously seen HERE). It does everything the previous model did, plus has a streaming video camera and can shoot darts out of its hand when in standing robot mode. Me? I can shoot fire out of my hands IN AN... / Continue →

    Because real life is boring when you're not staring at a phone, Google has created Ingress, an augmented reality "Warcraft like" MMORPG that's played in real life through an Android app. I'm not sure how I feel about it EXCEPT I AM GOING TO F***ING WIN. I played SimCity, I kn... / Continue →

    This is 'Breakfast Time', a series of digital paintings by artist Guillermo Fajardo featuring lifelike versions of cereal mascots. This is Cap'n 'Come Sit On My Lap' Crunch here, but there's Tony the Tiger, the Trix Rabbit and Count Chocula after the jump. Admittedly, Guiller... / Continue →

    This is a series of realistically painted Pokemons by DeviantARTist arvalis (aka RJ Palmer -- check out his page for ultra high-res shots). It says in his little bio he likes dinosaurs, so we're pretty similar. Except I LOVE dinosaurs. I am dino fan numero uno. My buddy Ter... / Continue →
