Cute Stuff: Muppet Baby Costumes by JustZipity

Kermit Baby Costume

File this under Awwwwwww. Etsy user JustZipity sells handmade Muppet ‘costumes’ for babies, and they could possibly be the cutest things ever. The masks look really well-made and would definitely blow any store-bought Muppet costume out of the water.

If I had a baby I would totally buy all of these. As of right now, she’s got Kermit, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Gonzo, Oscar the Grouch, and Abby Cadabby. The idea of a baby’s face looking like it’s in the process of being swallowed by Cookie Monster is worth $40, and actually becomes a slightly scary Halloween costume when you think about it.

Oh, and she claims she can make these in adult sizes too, in case you’re like me and were wondering.

Check out her Etsy shop and buy them all. Via Laughing Squid.

Missing Links

The Top Hat Sasquatch team reads a lot of blog posts every day, and some slip through the crack or just don’t warrant their own post. That’s where Missing Links comes in. Every few days we collect the best links we’ve come across and pass them on to you.

This Summer’s Best Water Gun
Gizmodo always delivers on the water gun front every summer, and this year their round up has an interesting winner.

The Great Muppet Road Trip, part 2: Middle America « ToughPigs
I missed Part 1 of this series, but it's very cool if you're a Muppet fan. I can't wait to get down to Atlanta sometime and see the Puppetry museum.

Oni To Debut Limited Edition "Scott Pilgrim" Color Deluxe Packages – Comic Book Resources
I still haven't read the Scott Pilgrim books, even though I'm a huge fan of the movie. This looks like a good place to start.

SDCC Exclusive Shazam! Minifigure
Yet another thing I'm missing out on at SDCC this year.

Watch This: The Muppets in ‘Kermit’s Party’ Shorts

Posted 8 years ago by Videos

I’m not very tolerant of commercials. I pretty much only see them online now that I don’t watch TV, but I don’t mind sitting through some commercials for Bounty paper towels if it means getting three new Muppet shorts. After the huge success of the new Muppet movie, the world is waiting to see what the next move for everyone’s favorite puppets will be. I think they fit in great in the world of online video, but these shorts make me wish I could see them in a sitcom-type environment. All of the Muppets living together in Kermit’s mansion, perhaps?

My Collecting Holy Grails: The Simpsons and The Muppets

Dad, What's a Muppet?

The League of Extraordinary Bloggers
This post is Top Hat Sasquatch’s first attempt at participating in The League of Extraordinary Bloggers, a weekly series of blog posts started by Brian over at Cool and Collected. Make sure to check out his site and join in the conversation if you run a blog!

I don’t have any one holy grail when it comes to collecting, mainly because I don’t really consider myself a collector. Sure, I have a lot of old TMNT toys and a tub full of random action figures, but I mainly just like to pick up weird pieces here and there and add them to my shelves. In my office you’ll find a 23 year old box of Batman cereal sealed sitting next to Krang’s Android Body and a ton of LEGO minifigures.

As much as I’d love to have every TMNT toy ever made, I know that’s not going to happen until I have a lot of extra spending money and even more free time to spend scouring ebay. That’s why, when I think of what my holy grail of collecting is, I think of two things. Well, two toy lines to be specific.

I want every toy ever made in The World of Springfield Simpsons line by Playmates and The Muppets series of action figures by Palisades Toys. Every one.

Miss Piggy Meets a Gamorrean Guard in ‘A Fine Romance’ by loopydave

A Fine Romance

I love a good Muppets/Star Wars crossover. Whether it’s the famed Mark Hamill episode of The Muppet Show or the recent Star Wars themed Muppet figurines at the Disney parks, I’m all for it. There’s something awesome about those two universes colliding. Maybe it’s because Frank Oz was Yoda. Hmm.

Anyway, deviantART user loopydave created this gorgeous Photoshop portrait of Miss Piggy meeting up with a Gamorrean guard in a cantina, and I can’t think of a better pair. Make sure to check it out at full size. I hope he makes prints of this, I would definitely buy one.
