These Benedict Cumberbatch Chocolate Easter Bunnies Are Half Amazing, Half Terrifying

03/04/2016 at 11:48 AM ET


Last Easter, a very skilled chocolatier created a life-size, edible Benedict Cumberbatch statue  — The Chocobatch, if you will — much to the delight and joy of dessert lovers and Cumberbabes everywhere.

Now, that chocolate artist is feeling inspired again, and is taking the idea one step further. Jen Lindsey-Clark of Chocolatician has designed a line of Easter chocolate bunnies — but with the unmistakable face of Benedict Cumberbatch.

Available in milk and dark chocolate, the Cumberbunny is described on the website as a “delicious Belgian chocolate rabbit with a handsome face and a tasty bottom.” (We’ll just leave that sentence right there for you.)

Lindsey-Clark wanted to capitalize on Cumberbatch’s huge fan base again the best way she knew how—through chocolate art.

“Everyone loves a bit of the Batch!” she told Metro UK. “He’s an interesting character. He’s a great actor and English gent and he’s also making the most of his celebrity status by being able to put his political views across and making the most of his moment in a very cool way.”

But if you want to get your hands on one of these holiday treats, it doesn’t come cheap: Each Cumberbunny retails for around $70. And if you’re willing to pony up the cash, hurry — it’s a limited edition Easter item.

If Cumberbatch wants a choco-bunny for himself, however, he’s going to have to order it just like the rest of us.

“I’m planning to send one over to his mum but not him,” she said. “He might think it’s weird eating his own face.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

The way I see it, the gaming scene pretty much divides into PC gaming and console gaming. No, not Pixar standard yet, but Rio will more than do for now. The overall game is based on strategy and has good graphics, courtesy of the Unreal Engine.

To reach the highest level of individual’s choice of video and computer games, a lot of alterations have been done. Breakout Voyager, made by Stian Thomassen based on Breakout, is a classic retro style breakout game with a bunch of falling balls. The overall game is based on strategy and has good graphics, courtesy of the Unreal Engine.
