  • Holiday Guide to Comic Action Figures and Gifts

    Posted on December 16, 2011 by PopFunk

    Comic book heroes have exploded further into the mainstream in 2011 with more movies and collectables than ever. Yet, as the genre's history has shown, one of the most celebrated ways of collecting superhero wares (aside from comics themselves) are their action figure likenesses. Perfect for the holiday season that is upon us, here are a few of the newest and hottest action figures and gifts currently on the market. Arkham City is still fresh in the game systems of Batman enthusiasts around the world and DC Comics has just released a new series of figures to celebrate the game. With a line that includes a buff, unmasked Batman figure, the sexy and neurotic Harley Quinn and a bo-staff sporting Robin, DC is unleashing the figures upon the comic community on December 21. Hovering around six and half inches tall, these collectables reflect the dark feel of the video game with mostly sharp black coloring and some deep red hues.

    2011 was a banner year for the Green Lantern franchise as it spawned not only two roller coaster rides at Six Flags Parks featuring the comic's name, but also the multi-million dollar blockbuster film based on the comic book. Already on their fifth series of Green Lantern figurines, DC Comics has created four more action figures based on characters for the classic comic including Guy Gardner, Sinestro, Soranik Natu and Brother Warth. Let these Lanterns police your action figure collection like they do the universe and prove the competition is futile.

The news alone of a potential movie has League fans clamoring for anything Superman, Aquaman or Wonder Woman. For your favorite comic book lover this holiday season, the perfect place to start is the latest line of Justice Leagure figures, which features The Joker, Poison Ivy, Batman, Wonder Woman and more.

  • Elvis and Marilyn Monroe Live Again in Online Game

    Posted on November 7, 2011 by PopFunk

    Taking your turn as an immortal entertainment icon will soon be just a mouse click away thanks to the folks at Entertainment Games. Their free-to-play episodic adventure game called Retro World will be launching November 8 on Facebook before expanding to Google+ and tablet devices. In it, we'll see Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe live again within the game, just not necessarily as themselves.
    Retro World
    In an interesting twist, Presley and Monroe will actually play characters within the story-driven game. In the first Retro World launch, "Owl Files", Monroe will play a '60s era spy. A future series will feature Presley as a doctor, much like his last film role, Change of Habit. This format will allow the stars to continue appearing over time in multiple levels as multiple characters. Additionally, users will be able to explore the entire game world with both icons as custom avatars that will be made available for purchase. Entertainment Games hopes to tap into the baby boomer audience that has heretofore been very responsive to other Facebook games. "We think the new generation of gamers is the 40-plus crowd," President Gene Mauro explained. "They don't want games that look like Saturday morning cartoons. They wants something that appeals to them visually, and has actual gameplay at the core. Story-driven adventure games helped advance the game industry forward 20 years ago, and we believe what is old is new again." While that remains to be seen, there is no doubt that Elvis and Marilyn will be forever in style. Here at Popfunk, we've made it our business to keep it that way. Check out our wide variety of Elvis shirts and Marilyn Monroe shirts!

  • How To Do Zombie Makeup for Halloween

    Posted on October 25, 2011 by PopFunk

    Halloween is just around the corner, and many of you may be wondering How To Do Zombie Makeup.  We at Popfunk know a thing or two about Zombies, and are here to give you a step-by-step guide on how to get that back from the dead look.  Zombie T Shirts

    What You Will Need

    Paintbrush Q-tips Liquid latex White cream face makeup Translucent face powder Color makeup palette (red, yellow, blue, green, black) Purple or black lipstick Fake blood (can be purchased or made at home from recipes below)

    How to Do Zombie Makeup

    Corpse-like pale skin: First you will need to cover the face and neck area with a light layer of white cream makeup.  You can apply the makeup using either a sponge or your fingertips, but remember two things: less is more, and blending is key.  You don’t want a caked on appearance, but rather a faint ghostly glow. Feel free to add shades of green and red under the cheekbones for a sullen look. Set the cream makeup with a translucent powder, so that it stays in place and does not sweat or melt off. Veins: Next, you can use a thin paintbrush to draw black and red veins across the face.  Make sure the veins emerge from the edge of the face near the hairline and move inward toward the center of the face. Bruised eye sockets: Blot red makeup over the entire eye socket and top of the eyelid. Then add a light layer of blue coloring over the red, and extend yellow shading out from the edges. Blend well. The Zombie Bite: Using a Q-Tip, apply liquid latex to the neck as a base.  Use a hair dyer to solidify the liquid latex, which will probably take around 2-minutes to be completely dry. Next, cover the entire base with black makeup, and deepen the center with deep red. Blend the bite into the rest of your neck by adding bruising.  Use fingers to pat a dark blue ring around the black rim of latex. Blend red outward over the blue and add yellow blotches to give realistic look.  Add blood to the wound for an oozing gory addition. The Hungry Mouth: Blacken teeth for a truly disturbing touch, using Mehron Tooth F-X (lasts all day and tastes like mint) or by dabbing black lipstick. Apply purple or black lipstick to the lips. Drool a generous amount of blood from mouth and chin. Clothing: Last but not least, rip, slash, wrinkle, and dirty the clothing you will be wearing to really look like you are the living dead. Blood: Arguably the most important part of the Zombie Makeup is the blood.  You will need to add blood to your clothing, your face, your mouth, your zombie bite, and body to achieve the most horrifying and gruesome presence. You can purchase fake blood from any costume shop or Halloween store, but we suggest you make your own blood following the recipes below.  There are different blood recipes listed for their purpose, including scabby realistic blood, bright red blood, scabs and more.  Try them for yourself! Clothing spray blood, with a bright red appearance (will stain!) 1/4 cup water 4 drops of red food coloring Thin dark blood, perfect for smearing on clothing or walls 1/4 cup water 8 drops of red food coloring 4 TBS corn syrup 2 drops yellow food coloring 1 drop green food coloring Thick realistic Blood with a dark tint for skin 2 TBSP Corn syrup 4 drops of red food coloring 1 tsp cocoa mix Gross blood with flakes of skin and scabs inside- great for wounds! 2 TBSP Corn syrup 1/2 tsp dried onion flakes 1/4 tsp water 6 drops red food coloring 1 tsp cocoa mix Dripping blood, reddish brown and perfect consistency for dripping down your chin, arms, walls or windows 2 TBS corn syrup 2 drops red food coloring 1/4 tsp cocoa mix Scabs 1/2 TBS corn starch 1 tsp water 1/4 tsp corn syrup 3/4 tsp onion flakes (1 tsp corn flakes or bran flakes will work, too) 1 drop red food coloring 1 drop yellow food coloring Instructions: Clump the mixture onto your skin, keeping in mind that the red food coloring will leave a light stain after the scab is removed. As the scab dries, it will look darker and the clumps will become more prominent. Fake chunks of doughy flesh 2 TBS corn starch 4 tsp water 2 drops red food coloring 1/4 tsp cocoa mix Instructions: Add all of the cornstarch to the bowl. Add only 2 tsp water. Stir. Add 2 drops of food coloring. Stir. Add 2 more tsp of water and another drop of food coloring, stir. Add 1/4 tsp of water. Stir until you have a good, rubbery texture, then add cocoa as the last ingredient. You will need to press the mixture against the side of the bowl in order to blend. Use those muscles! Well, there you have it! Let us know if you have any of your own tips on how to do zombie makeup and show us your pictures as Zombies for Halloween!
