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.

    Biopic in the ongoing works on Transgender MMA Fighter Fallon Fox

    Photo Credit: Keith MillsBiopic in the works on transgender MMA fighter Fallon FoxA biopic on transgender mixed martial artist Fallon Fox is in the works at Mark Gordon Pictures. Being penned by T Cooper and Allison Glock-Cooper, the Fallon Fox biopic will dive into Fox hiding her identity as a trans woman before coming out in 2013. It will also deal with the abuse she received from the mixed martial arts community.“I’ve had a great time so far working with the producers and writers bringing this story to life,” Fox said in a statement. “I hope this film sheds some light on the topic of trans athletes in sports. This story needs to be told now more than ever.”Fox, who was nicknamed “The Queen of Swords,” had a controversial run in combat sports from 2011 until 2014. She ultimately went 5-1 as a professional with brutal knockouts of Ericka Newsome and Elisha Helsper kickstarting her career. She eventually tasted defeat at the hands of Ashlee Evans-Smith, who picked up a TKO victory in 2013. Fox would fight two more times, defeating Heather Bassett and Tamikka Brents.The Fallon Fox biopic will also deal with the controversy that her fights caused and the debate over if a woman assigned male at birth should be able to fight in a women’s division in the sport. One of her most vocal critics was former Ultimate Fighting Champion titleholder and WWE star Ronda Rousey. “She can try hormones, chop her pecker off, but it’s still the same bone structure a man has,” Rousey told the New York Post in 2013. “It’s an advantage. I don’t think it’s fair.” Current Bellator MMA heavyweight Matt Mitrione was also suspended from the UFC over statements he made at the time about Fox.“As transgender/LGBTQIA writers and creators, we know in our bones the inherent value in and necessity of telling stories from the inside out, rather than from the outside looking in. We’re thrilled to be teaming with Mark Gordon Pictures to help bring Fallon’s undeniably powerful and relevant story to the screen,” said the Coopers of the film.
