Walgreen’s Introduces “Wonder Woman” Makeup Set

So the Warner Brothers film “Wonder Woman” opened up about two weeks ago and it’s been doing gangbusters in the theater which is very cool to see based on the three previous installments in the DC Extended Universe. I’ve discussed a lot about the film over on but that is not why I am here today. Today I am here to let you know that while shopping for sundry items at my local Duane Reade, I passed a shelf with “Wonder Woman” makeup on it. This is a Walgreen’s exclusive product and they own the Duane Reade franchise in full. Take a look at this stuff if you have a little Wonder Woman in your world. I thought it was a cute idea and just had to share it with you.

Walgreens Introduces Exclusive “Gotham Girls” Makeup Sets

You readers might already know that I go to the NY Comic Con every year and document the adventures over on – Well, as result of this I get to meet groups of wonderful Cosplayers and a few have remained friends with me for years. Recently, one of them who regularly dresses as Harley Quinn, asked me that if I should see the “Gotham Girls” makeup sets by Walgreens could I snap some photos for her. I guess she wanted to see if these helped with the accessorizing of her colorful outfits. Anyway, my local store had them and I snapped a few photos. Here is what they look like.

A New Orbit For Forbidden Planet in NYC

We really enjoy the comic book medium here at the PiercingMetal oops, I mean PiercingKen Base Camp and that is why we wanted to share a few photos with you from the just moved and newly expanded Forbidden Planet Comics Shop in NYC. For many years this space was almost directly across the street before it moved to the smaller corner spot on 13th Street and Broadway. That space had a lot of stuff in a confined area and would really leave you a little claustrophobic at times.

A Little Garden Art For Ya

I must admit that sometimes the strangest observances pique my interest and such was the case while hitting a neighborhood Home Depot store not too long ago where I found myself in the garden section and was curiously amused by the stacked up watering cans. At first glance I thought that they were cleverly and skillfully positioned together on top of one another and balanced with deadly precision so as not to topple over. It was only when a gust of wind blew the baseball cap I was wearing off my head that I realized how each of these cans were instead hanging on to security by a pole that was in the bucket display. The realization was a combination of the cap falling right near the stack of cans and also in my seeing that they did not fall down. Take a look though, its kind of deceiving right?

Here’s another angle.

Sometimes the illusion or perception of it makes it a magical visual but of course I might finally need a pair of glasses. Sigh. Alright that is all I have for you right now. See you again soon.
