HOW TO – Make a flaming carrot costume

Here’s a pretty funny DIY costume from the surreal comic The Flaming Carrot, RoG at i-Mockery writes… “The Flaming Carrot is probably my favorite comic book character ever (though “The Tick” definitely ranks right up there too). He’s just got a wonderful way with words and the comic books are just bizarre enough for me to be interested in them. Well that and they’ve also had some nice crossover issues with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in which Raphael loses his memory and becomes the “Dark Avenger” – a hero with a cape that says “bread” on it, a sack for a mask, and plungers for weapons. As if that’s not enough, they’ve had Christopher Walken, Luciano Pavarotti, and Fabio… all in the same comic. If that doesn’t make you want to rush out and buy every Flaming Carrot comic in existence, nothing will.

But what about those of us who need more than the comic books? Well, by following my handy-dandy guide, you’ll soon be able to become the Flaming Carrot” [via] – Link.
