Post-Halloween Eclectic Image Mix

"QUANTUM SHOT" #18(rev)
Link - by Avi Abrams

Knights, Birds, Cats and Cabbages

Well, Halloween has come and gone, and for those of you who's still trembling a little from encountered (and probably imbibed) spirits, here is a very eclectic image mix...

Apparently, imaginary disasters can help sell cars:

Dressed up in costume all year long -

or in this beautiful armour, dreamed up by Ruslan Svobodin:

Philosophy and Alfred Hitchcock's fear of birds co-exist in surreal photographs by Sarolta Ban, from Budapest, Hungary -

Meet some TV monsters: furry robots... big black spiders (looking ugly next to the "Incredible Shrinking Man")... a giant moth from Japan ("Mothra")...

"Ultra-Q" (1966) Japanese TV series - more info. These are the monster's eyes peeking in a window:

...or vicious molecules bombarding an exploring couple from "The Fantastic Voyage" (featuring weird landscapes inside a human body):

Some more vintage movie posters with LARGER-THAN-LIFE monster! -

Monsters from the Planet Photoshop are mostly passe nowadays, but these are especially endearing: a furry frog, and a cat-mouse -

Watch these movies inside this monster movie bus! -

Cutting out your own confetti

Some stores are already thinking about Christmas - you can start preparing for your next party by buying this prefabricated cut sheet.

Instructions for use:
1. Print out this image.
2. Cut out the circles.
3. Keep cutting out the circles.

Also, if you have nothing else to do, try imitating various internet smiley faces -

Most of all, be afraid, BE VERY AFRAID of your cat:

(this would make an awesome t-shirt design; originals unknown)

Good Night!

When you're done with the confetti you could cut out the faces and make a flip-book.

Ha ha, the furry frog was great.
And the information about “Boh” is something that'll definitely make people think I'm cool at parties.
“Mothra” must be the most freakiest idea. I don't know, there's something freaky about moths to me. Especially giant sized ones. Maybe it's because they're just so weird and mysterious. I mean, they're beautiful creatures, but I'm sure they would take vengeance on us if they became a giant Mothra.
