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.

    Xbox Series X Mini Fridge Pre-Orders Sell Out, but More Are on the Way

    Xbox has been teasing the release of a mini-fridge modeled after the Xbox Series X for some time. The product finally launched on Tuesday and immediately sold out. According to Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg, though, more are on the way.

    Replying to some fans on Twitter, Greenberg noted that the product will be limited during the holiday season, but that the fridge itself is not a “limited edition” item. Greenberg said that “more inventory” will be coming early next year, and that they will be making more and looking to “increase supply and available markets in 2022.” This matches up with things Greenberg has said in the past, as he said earlier in the year that the item was on track for a holiday release with limited stock.

    As initially seen in the trailer for the item and other product shots for it, the Xbox Mini Fridge looks just like the console that sits beside your television, except it’s cooler, and can hold a couple of cans of your favorite beverage. The Xbox fridge measures 18″ x 9″ x 9″ (462mm x 232mm x 232mm), with a 13.8″ x 6.8″ x 6.8″ (352.3mm x 174mm x 175mm) internal compartment, and also sports a USB port that can be used to charge various devices. The fridge looks to hold a total of 10 or so 12-ounce cans; the bottom and middle shelves hold four cans, while the top shelf holds two cans that can lay on its side. There is also a green interior that lights the inside of the fridge.

    This is the “first time in Xbox history” an Xbox Mini Fridge is coming out. It is also the “world’s most powerful mini-fridge.” However, it’s not the first Xbox-related refrigerator. Microsoft showed off a normal-sized version of the fridge in 2020, but users were not able to buy it.
