This is a small series of handmade high-heelsby footwear designer/cobbler Kobi Levi. Each represents a different Disney lady-villain. This is the Evil Queen here, but there are Maleficent and Ursala models after the jump. Unfortunately, there aren’t any Victoria’s Secret models after the jump, so you’re on your own ever getting a boner again after seeing Ursala as a shoe.
Hit the jump for the rest.Related Posts:
In heartbreaking news, Disney is shutting down video game developer/publisher LucasArts after its acquisition of it and LucasFilm last year. The company was known for some of the best graphic adventure games the world has even seen, including: Maniac Mansion, Loom, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max Hit the Road, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, the entire series of Indiana Jones point-and-click adventures, and every Monkey Island, to name a few of my favorites. The company has also made virtually every Star Wars game to date, but has decided to cancel development of both Star Wars: First Assault and Star Wars 1313 to focus on a business model that revolves primarily around licensing the rights for other companies to make Star Wars games instead of creating them in-house. Oh, I’ve got one — it’s called, ‘Fly This X-Wing Straight Up Mickey’s Ass’. It’s rated T for Teen because it’s really just a mix tape of me cussing. I may even release some DLC.
Thanks to Pyrblaze, Lisa, Skamodongo, Doombah and Mr. Q., two of which sound like rejected Super Mario enemies. Hopefully this thing turns out for the best.

These are a bunch of shots taken by St. Louis, Missouri based Shari Photography of a couple’s Disney themed wedding. The bride and groom were Ariel and Prince Eric, and all the bridesmaids were Disney princesses and the groomsman princes/random characters. There were a bunch of Disney touches at the reception as well. That’s cool. My fairytale wedding? Way simpler. All I want is a ceremony that’s as short as possible, an open bar, and food that doesn’t suck (I’m thinking sloppy joes). Oh, and I want a raised dance floor made out of diamonds and I want all my favorite bands to be there to play whatever song I want (we may need to reanimate some corpses for this). And if the president and all the other world leaders could come get sloshed and work out their differences in between arm-wrestling matches, that would be cool too. Lastly, I want to honeymoon the way whoever invented the word intended — ON THE ACTUAL MOON. So we’re going to need to leave the reception in a spaceship. Preferably one with a jazz and wine bar. “And a casino.” Good call! (My future wife is a gambling addict)
Hit the jump for a bunch more shots, but for the entire set (including all the Disney place-settings and table decorations and all that check out Shari Photography’s blog).Related Posts:
It’s entirely possible for robots to juggle or play catch. They’ve usually been relegated to playing with their own kind, however, which is as good an excuse as any for Disney Research to experiment with a ball-tossing robot tailored to games with humans. The animatronic creation uses a depth-aware motion camera — there’s conflicting mentions of using both the Microsoft Kinect and ASUS’ Xtion Pro Live that we’re hoping to sort out — to track any mid-air balls as well as throw them back to a human participant. Disney’s robot does more than just move the robot’s arm to account for imperfect tosses, too, as it knows to feign a dejected look after a botched reception. The company suggests that its invention would ideally bring two-way interaction to theme parks, so it’s more likely to show up at Disneyland before it stands in for a parent in the backyard. It’s just as well; when the Robopocalypse comes, the last thing we’ll want at home is a machine that can toss grenades.

Because he realizes just how badly he’s sinned and is trying to make up for it in his old age so he can go to heaven instead of the depths of hell like I imagine him screaming from in my dreams, George Lucas has announced that he’s giving away the majority of the $ 4-billion from the sale of LucasFilm. It will be the first decent thing he’s done in almost 25 years.
By the end of the year, the $ 4.05 billion sale of Lucasfilm to Disney should be finalized. And since George Lucas owns 100 percent of his company – which has little to no debt – all that money goes to him.
After that, Lucas plans to quickly put the bulk of the money into a foundation which will primarily focus on educational issues, a spokesperson for Lucasfilm tells THR.
“For 41 years, the majority of my time and money has been put into the company,” Lucas said in a statement Wednesday. “As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy.”
Aha! So George is putting all those cease-and-desist copyright violations to good use after all. And all along I thought he was just a greedy old bag! Maybe there’s still some good in him after all. You know, like Darth Vader at the end of his life. Star Wars — autobiographical? DUM DUM DUM!
Thanks to everyone who sent this. I’d name you all, but you really need to send a little more obscure tips next time.
News today swirled like hurricane Sandy, starting with announcements from Microsoft’s Build developers conference, new details surrounding Apple’s executive shakeup, and arguably today’s biggest bombshell: Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm. But fret not, while you may have to wait until 2015 for Star Wars: Episode 7, 90 Seconds on The Verge starring Billy Disney is here for you today.Stories of the day:
- Microsoft sells four million Windows 8 upgrades in first few days
- Apple’s Scott Forstall’s fatal mistake was not signing iOS 6 Maps apology letter: sources
- Disney buys Lucasfilm, plans to release ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ in 2015
A group of engineers from Disney Research have crafted a new method to create interactive objects using 3D printers. Referred to as “printed optics,” the lure of this technology is the ability to transform inert 3D models into interactive subjects by embedding 3D printed light piping into an object with minimal electronic components. Illuminated by LEDs and mobile projectors, this new breakthrough in optics has the potential to replace LCD and LED screens to display information on smaller interactive devices. If you find yourself scratching your head trying to visualize such a mojo in action, then check out the video after the break. It will enlighten you.
This is a small series of digital paintings by artist Justin Turrentine called ‘Happy Endings for Disney Villains’. It features (you’ll never guess!) illustrations of Disney villains if they’d come out on top and not had their plans foiled by much younger, more attractive princesses. I especially liked this one here, but I thought Ursula should probably have a side of mermaid tail on the table too. Or a human leg, depending on the state of Ariel’s transformation when she was killed. BONUS FUN FACT: I’ve actually tasted human before, and as recently as last week. “Picking and eating scabs doesn’t count.” Yes it does too!
