Craft Time: Make A Thanksgiving Day Chocobo Hat

It’s 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. You’re probably stuffed with turkey right now, or in the process of stuffing yourself with turkey, or still waiting to stuff yourself with turkey. (If you ate ham, get the hell out of here.) You know what that means? It’s time to make hats! Making turkey hats is an old Thanksgiving tradition. It’s not hard to see why; turkey hats combine two of our favorite things: food and fashion. Hats also make your head look bigger, which will convince people that your brain is huge. People who wear hats are often the life of the party. Need proof? Check out this picture of Spock. Boy what a boring guy. Now, what if we throw a hat on him? Instant party animal! You too can be this guy. But instead of making the traditional Turkey hat for Thanksgiving, why not make a hat using gaming’s first bird: the Chocobo. Read on to find out how. Making Chocobo hats is a fun family affair. It’s also practical. If that annual post-meal brawl breaks out, you’ll already be armed with scissors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: Construction paper (all colors) Scissors Glue (edible) The unspoken disgust of your older cousins Kenny Loggin’s Top Gun Soundtrack Begin by cutting a piece of yellow paper into a large circle (don’t worry it can’t feel anything.) This is what a circle looks like: Next, cut out a beak and some eyes. Here is what you’re aiming for: If your uncle begins screaming about how his ex-wife wrecked his boat or your nephews start a backyard wrestling match in the living room, crank up Kenny Loggin’s "Danger Zone" and shut out the sound of smashing dishes. Next: putting it all together. Families can be hard. Is your mom screaming at you to take out the garbage? Is your Dad yelling at you, because he doesn’t want you to cut off all the cat’s hair? Is some old man complaining that you broke into his house and stole his war bonds? Ignore them. They don’t understand you. You’re an artist. You need those war bonds to make your Chocobo hat. It’s time to put the whole thing together. Glue your beak and eye to your circle and then affix the whole Chocobo head to another piece of paper (or war bond) and wrap it around your head. Feel free to add a few little extra details to your hat. Really make it your own. Add some extra tuffs off hair or a ruffled brow. If your Chocobo is filled with friendship and magic, add some glitter. If you’ve followed our instructions carefully, you should end up with something like this: *Results may vary There you have it. You are now free to experience the true joys of Thanksgiving. Throw away the unused scraps of paper (ignore their cries for mercy; they weren’t good enough to make the cut.) Now, go have some pie and hug your grandma – not only will she be freaked out by your new hat, she’ll won’t know what to make of this random affection. And remember, if you get bored later, you can always make Chocobo hats for your pets.

    Apple's next iPhone could include a smaller display notch and larger battery

    Apple might not announce the 2021 iPhone before second 1 / 2 of the entire year, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill, this week developing from reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with a fresh report. In an email obtained by MacRumors , Kuo says Apple will release four different iPhone models in 2021 that may come in exactly the same sizes because the 2020 lineup. Another year which means the mini variant will hang in there for at the very least. Month from well-known leaker Max Weinbach among others corroborating a written report last, Kuo said the iPhone 13 Pro models will feature energy-efficient 120Hz LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) displays. The Pro models shall likewise incorporate an updated ultra-wide camera which will include a faster f/1.8 aperture lens which includes autofocus.

    The 2021 models won’t include a drastically different design than their 2020 counterparts. However, because of some small engineering breakthroughs, they’ll reportedly include bigger batteries and smaller display cutouts. Kuo said the iPhone won’t proceed to USB-C in 2021, but nor will Apple introduce a phone this season it doesn’t include any ports at all. Internally, all phones will feature Qualcomm’s X60 5G modem. The 5nm radio is smaller and much more power-efficient compared to the X55 modem within the iPhone 12 lineup.

    Notably, the note doesn’t make any reference to Apple adding an in-display fingerprint scanner to the 2021 models. In accordance with a written report Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman published in the beginning of the year, that has been one of many upgrades Apple was considering for 2021. It appears like Touch ID is off the table also, with Kuo noting that the business doesn’t intend to have a page from the iPad Air and integrate the technology in to the 2021 model’s power button.

    Kuo’s note also contains some tidbits about Apple’s 2022 and 2023 iPhone lineups. Based on the analyst, year will include a Samsung-style punch-hole display cutout at the very least some iPhone models next. If the entire lineup abandons Apple’s divisive notch depends on panel production yields. Kuo didn’t say what the move means for Face ID. Apple can be reportedly preparing a fresh SE model with 5G connectivity and a faster processor the business could release in the initial 1 / 2 of 2022.
