Because You Never Know When You Might Need A Good Group Costume…

Halloween draws ever closer, and with it comes the nerve-shredding pressure to win the holiday with a clever costume. That’s the bad news. The good? Your friends here at Found Item Clothing have your back (literally and metaphorically). To wit, the annual refresh of our Halloween Movie Costume Guide, an ever-expanding gallery of head-to-toe tutorials, now totaling some 40 entries, developed around some of the most wacked out movie characters to appear in ’80s flicks.

New for 2013 are 4 group costumes inspired by Breaking Away, Caddyshack, Dazed And Confused, and Wet Hot American Summer. Ideal for groups of 2 to 4 enterprising individuals, they’re simple to put together (using everyday clothing staples), easy on the wallet, and just a bit off the pop culture radar. What’s old is new again, or something to that effect.

Embedded below are some snaps from our photo shoot earlier in the month. Click on the images to link through to the tutorials!

On The Spot: 25 Unscripted Scenes In Films

Another week, another super-cut movie montage, in this case one organized around on-screen improv.

As with any of these edits, one can quibble with the individual selections (and their ranking) but the concept (and its execution) is otherwise solid.

Dress The Part: Our 2010 Halloween Costume Guide Is Here!

Halloween is creeping closer, which, naturally, begs the following question: got costume? For those suffering from a lack of inspiration, fear not, loyal readers: your friends at Found Item Clothing are here to help!

We’ve just posted our annual Halloween Costume Guide, which takes the Found Item model to its logical terminus, sourcing not only the shirts in question but all of the related elements and props necessary to build a convincing ensemble. This year’s version adds seven movie-themed get-ups to the mix, bringing the grand total to a whopping 28. Included among them are a few gems that you won’t find anywhere else, including Coach Steroid from The Ramones’ camp classic, Rock & Roll High School and Edgar Frog from the 80’s vamp classic, The Lost Boys. By popular demand, we’ve also developed hilarious outfits for Bob Wiley (What About Bob?) and Mr. Larson (Happy Gilmore). Click on the image/links above to see the entire spread. Because you never know when you might need a good costume…

Trash Talk: 100 Movie Insults, Putdowns & Disses (SNSFW)

As with any compilation of this kind, I might quibble here and there with some of the individual selections, but I can’t fault the enthusiasm, the concept, or, more importantly, the execution, which is seamless (the sequencing, in particular). Fans of the Found Item catalog will recognize many, nay most of these clips (especially those with an 80’s pedigree), but some are relatively obscure (in which case you can refer here for a complete list of sources)… and devastatingly funny. The language, as you may imagine, is profane in patches (and gleefully so). Enjoy!

I should add that the editor of said montage — one Harry Hanrahan — has authored a series of well-received videos in this vein before.

One can only wonder, however, why this snippet from Clueless was omitted:

“Why should I listen to you, anyway? You’re a virgin who can’t drive.” – Tai

Teeing Off: Holocene’s 5th Annual Mini-Golf Invitational

Golf? Uh, sure. On occasion. Maybe if it’s in hi-def. Or Caddyshack.

Minigolf, you say? Now you’re talking my language…

To this end, I’m really excited about the following event, which is fast becoming a Portland tradition:

The concept is simple: Holocene, an art space-cum-live music venue, invites a who’s who of local creatives to design and construct a hole of their own (13 in total, I believe), loosely organized around a shared concept (this year’s motif: Zukünftspielplatz, or Kraut for future playground). Cool bands and DJs provide the soundtrack, while Holocene’s excellent barkeeps turn out cold drinks. Fun is had, and hilarity ensues. Hi-jinxs Hi-Links (get it?) FTW!

Like such:

$5 before 7pm, $8 thereafter…

Golf garb is highly encouraged, and apparently, rewarded.
