Jurassic World Inflatable T-Rex Costume
You have some T-Rex decisions to make: do you want the costume with a built-in sound box in the gloves, or do you want to make your own Tyrannosaurus sounds? This fan-and-battery-operated suit comes in both versions.
The T-Rex costume has an inseam of less than 33", which should fit adults up to 6' tall, with a 42 to 44 chest an 34 to 36 inseam. There's a vision window at the neck of the dinosaur so you can see all the havoc you're wreaking, and stuff you're getting yelled at for stomping on or knocking over, while wearing it.
Wearable Superhero Full Body Armor
Full Body Armors' superhero and video game character costume replicas will secure your cosplay convention credibility, and make all of your Sundays Fundays. The made-to-measure suits transform wearers, from head to toe, into the likes of Iron Man, Batman, Deadpool, and Halo 5's Master Chief.
Full Body Armor suits are legit mashups of fantasy and real life in pretty much every way but their ability to fight evil and crush enemies. On that front, these are costumes only, made from 3D-printed and CNC-machined materials such as PU plastic, ABS plastic, and aluminum alloy frameworks. In addition to enabling Full Body Armor to custom fit every piece of the suit, from head to bicep to calf, to your body, these "textiles" also keep the weight down. Most of the costume replicas weigh around 15 pounds.
Jizz the Game
Jizz the Game gives players the opportunity to doodle-doo a cock and get a geyser of its delightful cum all over various parts of their body. Don't worry though, the cock is plastic, and the cum is...whatever you choose to fill its balls with. Jizz the Game "recommends water" but you could also go with booze, a flour and egg mixture, or a scoop from your 55-gallon barrel of lube.
RC Airsoft Battle Tanks
Radio-controlled tanks that fire actual BBs? Glass sliding doors beware. These RC tanks, which I don't even know how they're allowed really in this day and age, but I'm glad they are, are modeled after some of the most iconic tanks utilized in the United States' most iconic wars.
Pop It Pal Pimple Popping Simulator
Who doesn't long to be poppin' zits like a G6? Look no further than the Pop It Pal Pimple Popping Simulator. Even if the teen acne days are behind you, and most of those juicy back zits juuust out of reach, this fleshy, pus-filled brick brings the equal parts gross and gratifying act of bursting a dermatological volcano to everyone. Poise your pointer fingers, amp up your bodily fluid fascination, and get ready to Pop It Pal.
Gerber Ghoststrike Fixed Blade Knife
A fine choice from a trusted purveyor at a reasonable price. Maybe Gerber's Ghoststrike isn't the coolest wearable knife you'll ever own, but the blade does come with a modular sheath system, so if concealed carry is what you're going for, you'll have an easy time securing it to your belt, and the pleasure of wearing your shirt untucked to keep it hidden.
Party Bird Island Rafts
What's better than a magic carpet ride? A big magical unicorn pool float. A giant pink flamingo party raft. A huge and handsome floating peacock island. All big enough to bob you and 5 of your best buds around the lake or ocean all day (all weekend! all summer!) long!
3D Unicorn Underwear
I bet if Juvenile saw these 3D Unicorn Underwear from Knicker Rocker he would think twice before telling the ladies to back that azz up. The panties are quite the statement piece, combining dreamy, fantastical unicorns with sexy lingerie with a definitive warning of the consequences for making any uninvited advancements on the lady wearing them. Skewered by a unicorn. A rough way to go.
SHTF Mystery Gear Box Club
Survival and prepper gear curated, consolidated, and caddied to your front door. The SHTF Survival monthly subscription box contains stuff you may have otherwise spent hours scouring the web to assemble yourself, thus bringing in all the benefit for a fraction of the infringement on the time you could be spending
watching porn gaming working at work.
Le Koroc Tiny House Boat
The Le Koroc tiny house boat is exactly how it sounds: a tiny house built on a boat. More specifically, it's a single-structure piece of construction, assembled with laminated white cedar beams and ultralight plywood, set atop three 50 / 52H32 marine grade aluminum / magnesium alloy tubes with 4' sealed chambers. When asked how it feels about this new, water-based arrangement, the house said, "I'm on a boat motherf**ker!"
Tactical Vest Beer Koozies
It's military-strength protection for your beer! These tactical vest beer koozies, complete with MOLLE attachments for toothpicks, cigs, and lime wedges, might be pretty cheesy, but the cheddar they're oozing out of their adjustable stitched shoulder straps is exactly why they'd make a fine gift for Dad, or groomsmen's gift for your boys. Dad loves him some cheese. And given what you've seen so far of your fiancee's bridesmaids, your boys are gonna need extra protection at the reception.
Fallen AT-AT Tape Dispenser
Want to stick it to the Empire? Take down their AT-ATs with this secret weapon: a roll of tape. As my mama always told me when she was patching my coats and jeans and open wounds, never underestimate the power of a good adhesive.
Jurassic Park Dr. Ian Malcolm Statue
Oh you remember this from the movie. Even the non-ladies amongst you. Malcolm goes from attacked by a T-Rex to recovering like Burt Reynolds on a bearskin rug in 2 scenes flat.
Already preserved for posterity as a meme, Sideshow is now giving Malcolm / Goldblum fans the opportunity to preserve the scene in 3D, as a 1:4 scale limited edition statue. And like all of their creations, Ian Malcolm is detailed down to the specks of blood on his (strapping!) chest and (tellingly large!) hands.
Spyra One Water Bullet Water Gun
Nothing like the thought of pelting my friend Cornelius with a Spyra One water bullet to get me amped up on this fine afternoon! Well, that and tacos.
The Spyra One calls itself a next-gen water gun, a battle toy that replaces the streaming shots of other water guns with a powerful 30mL "water bullet" capable of hitting targets with balls-H2On accuracy from up to 25' feet away.
Zero Fs Given Gold Decision Maker Coin
Well, you probably give a little more than zero Fs if you're going to the trouble of flipping a coin to make the decision. But if your wife asks you whether you'd prefer new cloth napkins in sage green or seafoam green, haul out one of these Zero Fs Given decision maker coins to help make the call, and you'll definitely make a point while you're at it.
ZipStitch - Close Wounds Without Stitches
If I had a gaping laceration on my leg, and someone handed me a ZipStitch kit and told me my options were to treat myself for free, or go to the hospital and spend $500 on stitches, I'm pretty sure I'd pick...passing out at the sight of my own gushing blood and insides, and hoping a steady hand nearby was interested in playing doctor and saving me $500.
Each "zipper" in this self-treatment kit consists of 4 stacked closures secured inside a translucent bandage-y thing with an adhesive backing. You can place a single ZipStitch over an open wound up to 1-1/2" long. Once in place, pull on the eye handle ends of each closure to tighten it, and pull your skin hole shut. If your laceration is larger than 1-1/2", apply multiple ZipStitches.
P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever
In P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever, Raj Halder and Chris Carpenter take a jab or two (or 26) at the English language, pairing the letters of the alphabet with words that defy the typical intent of alphabet books as teaching tools for our kids. "P is for peeech. Puh, puh, peach. P." But! "P is also for...ter-a-dac-til. Tuh, tuh, pterodactyl." Huh?
DroneGun Tactical - Portable Drone Countermeasure
The DroneGun Tactical provides a safe countermeasure against a wide range of drone models. Relying on Spaceballs-like tech, instead of ready, aim, fire, it's ready, aim...jam! The Dronegun allows for a controlled management of drone payloads such as explosives (or aerial neighborhood photos) with no damage to common drone models or surrounding environment.
FinalStraw - Collapsible, Reusable Straw
Collapsible, reusable, easy to clean. It's the Final Straw for single-use tubular plastic polluters everywhere.
In an effort to curb the waste, and also to make a piece of EDC that is "totally badass," Emma Cohen, Miles Pepper, and Jessica Girard created The Final Straw. Made of triple-jointed stainless steel, The Final Straw folds to fit into a keychain-sized recycled ABS carrier for access whenever you need it. The straw's interior tubing material is medical-grade TPE for drinking as safe for you as a reusable straw is for the earth.
