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.

    Report: Samuel L. Jackson Will Headline a Nick Fury Series on Disney+

    Report: Samuel L. Jackson Will Headline a Nick Fury Series on Disney+ Aside from his appearance in Captain Marvel, Nick Fury has had a relatively small role in the MCU for the past few years. However, that may soon change in a big way. Variety is reporting that Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role in a Nick Fury series on Disney+. The report also notes that Jackson will serve as an executive producer on the show (via SuperHeroHype). RELATED: ILM Explores the Making of the Razor Crest in a New Mandalorian Featurette Disney+ did not respond to Variety’s initial story, but the outlet also notes that Kyle Bradstreet will write the series and executive produce it as well. Jackson has been playing Fury since the post-credits scene in Iron Man. Prior to that, Marvel infamously used Jackson’s likeness for Fury in The Ultimates, a modern reboot of the Avengers comic book series. Jackson made two guest appearances in ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as numerous other roles in the Marvel movies. His last MCU appearance came in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which revealed that Nick Fury is no longer on Earth. Instead, Fury is somewhere out in space on Skrull starship.

However, the techniques used to make Jackson appear young in Captain Marvel could allow Marvel to place the series in any part of Fury’s career.
