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.

    Jon Favreau Says The Mandalorian Season 3 is on Schedule To Film This Year

    Jon Favreau Says The Mandalorian Season 3 is on Schedule To Film This Year While Disney+ hasn’t officially given a greenlight for The Mandalorian season 3, it’s basically a formality. Series creator and showrunner, Jon Favreau, began working on the season 3 scripts earlier this year (via SuperHeroHype). More recently, Favreau told Variety said that The Mandalorian season 3 is “on schedule…[to begin filming] before the end of the year.” RELATED: Din Djarin Shows the Way in The Mandalorian Season 2 Promo “We’re operating under the assumption that we’ll be able to go forward,” added Favreau. “We’re in very small situations and oftentimes we have a lot of characters in masks. And we also have a lot of digital work that augments things. So we’re a show that’s probably well-equipped to be flexible based on the protocols that are emerging surrounding work restarting.” Regarding rumors of a Mandalorian movie, Favreau noted that he’s not in a hurry to make one. “But we’re definitely open to it,” said Favreau. “And excited to see where the story leads us and have that flexibility — because there’s no rulebook now. Technology is always offering new opportunities to tell stories in a fresh way. It’s a very exciting time to be doing this and I feel very grateful that we’re able to be able to work remotely, because of the nature of the technology that we’re dealing with. So we’re continuing to try to move forward and keep the ball rolling, even though it’s been a challenging time for everyone.” However, The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal was more enthusiastic about a potential film. “I think that the work is so beautiful that I would love for that to be held by a big-screen experience,” said Pascal. “But it seems to work so well that also I’m not sure it’s something that I would want corrupted by any kind of change, you know? I mean, I certainly know that the challenge can be met. It’s not like these people don’t have the experience. If anybody can do it, they can!” RELATED: The Mandalorian Season 2 Character Art Brings Out Your Inner Child The Mandalorian season 2 will premiere on Disney+ on October 30.

    20 Minutes of Star Wars: Squadrons!

    CS Plays 20 Minutes of Star Wars: Squadrons! Hey guys, we finally got our hands on EA’s Star Wars: Squadrons and so far the results are impressive. You can check out 20 minutes of gameplay in the video below! Click here to purchase Star Wars: Squadrons for PS4! Click here to purchase Star Wars Squadrons for PC! RELATED: The Imperials Strike Back in Star Wars: Squadrons CG Short Premiere We’ll have a full review for you some time next week, suffice to say Squadrons delivers an immersive combat experience in vein of 1998’s Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, albeit with better graphics. Controls are actually quite fluid and allow the user to easily slow down and accelerate their ship during intense dogfights; and redistribute power to various systems, i.e., the lasers, shields, and thrusters. The levels are rather simplistic and consist mainly of flying to an area, fighting a barrage of x-wings or tie fighters, depending on your side, whilst avoiding laser fire from star destroyers and other large craft. All in all, it’s very much a Star Wars game filled with diverse characters and set amidst the backdrop of that galaxy far, far away. Our opinion might change as the game progresses, but so far we think it’s worth the relatively cheap $40 price tag! RELATED: CS Plays: Marvel’s Avengers Multiplayer Walkthrough Video The official description of Star Wars: Squadrons reads: “In a fateful campaign set near the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War, learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling Star Wars single-player story. The New Republic fights for freedom. The Empire demands order. We need you to join the galaxy’s finest.” Star Wars: Squadrons is now available on all major platforms. In addition to regular consoles, the game will also be available in virtual reality on PlayStation 4 and PC.

    Exclusive: “Was I Not Padme?” Keira Knightley on Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

    Exclusive: “Was I Not Padme?” Keira Knightley on Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Recently, ComingSoon.net got the chance to talk to Keira Knightley about her new film, Misbehaviour, and we couldn’t help but take a few minutes to ask her about one of her first film roles in Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. Surprisingly, Keira does not seem to be asked about the film much and admits that she was twelve when they filmed, and she only watched it once when it premiered. In the film, Keira played Sabe, one of Queen Amidala’s most important handmaidens. She later becomes a decoy, taking over the queen’s throne while Amidala dresses down and goes by the less formal name Padme.

A witty yet heartfelt film, Misbehaviour was directed by multiple BAFTA Award-winning director Philippa Lowthorpe and written by Rebecca Frayn and BAFTA Scotland Award nominee Gaby Chiappe. In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favorite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.
