Ok I peed myself when I read this one … Montreal is getting ready for ComicCon and it seems Batman got himself into some kind of trouble. Read the full article from The Montreal Gazette here:

MONTREAL – It seems even the Batmobile can be ticketed for parking illegally in Montreal.

The city’s parking enforcement officers were not amused when they came across the Caped Crusader’s famous ride (or a very accurate replica) parked outside of HMV near the corner of Peel and Ste. Catherine on Thursday afternoon. The nearby parking meter had apparently not been fed.

“Who does this car belong to?” the officers asked as a large crowd began to gather around the vehicle and snap photos. “You have to pay… It can’t just be here like this.”

In the end, no ticket was issued. The owners of the car paid the parking fee, and the officers backed off.

The vehicle is in town for this weekend’s Comiccon convention, along with a replica of the time-travelling car featured in the Back to the Future films.

I’m pretty sure Batman has some kind of  “Anti-Parking Ticket BatSpray” or something along these lines … Ha ha ha!
 
Have a nice Dorky Day!

FBI Badge (X-Files)

I was working a while back on a project called Mythos who was intended to be a Live Action Roleplaying Game based on Howard Philip Lovecraft’s universe. I wanted the setting to take place in 20xx because I wanted the players to be able to play without looking out of place when amongst non-players. One of the Prop Documents I built was this FBI Badge as seen in X-Files. The Badge has Mythos written in small characters on it but can easily be erased using an image editor. You can also add a photo and additional informations on the back panel of the Badge. All you have to do after printing is go to the store, grab plastic sleeves, insert this baby into the sleeve and Voilà! An accurate-looking FBI Badge as seen in the movies!

Click for Full Size ... Save, Edit, Print and you're almost done!

 

All you need is your printed/edited badge, a badge holder clip and a plastic sleeve. It doesn't fit entirely in it but optionally, you could plastify your badge.

Your badge is ready to go!

Ok … This might not be my best FBI mugshot but I needed a photo and that’s the best I had … Oh and why don’t you guys send me photos with your Badges? I would post some of them for sure!
