Luke Kay, 42, has sold for £1 million of Hollywood productions stuff. For the story, his huge collection was the cause of conflict with his wife Sharon, who banned it from the house, in Swindon, Wiltshire. They split 3 years ago after 21 years of marriage. Actually, his collection was so big that he stored it in his house, in another house and two storage units. But he decided to sell his collection because it was too much to keep.
He possessed stuff that had really been used in famous productions such as Star Wars (outfits worn by Luke Skywalker, other suits and his original light sabre, full size replica of Jabba the Hut, of R2D2, of Yoda and outfits worn by Han Solo and Anakin Skywalker), Battlestar Gallactica (original helmet), Knight Rider (one of the original ‘Kit’ cars), Predator (original mask), Power Ranger (mask).
Hi everyone! The summer here is hot, hope you have hot days too wherever you are. Such summer days make you only wish for one thing – to go to the beach or a swimming pool, just to be near the water ;)) Anyway, I also noticed that our visitors are bit by bit returning from their vacation. And this is great, the more, the merrier. If you are the first time on the site, then Join us If you have any pictures, or other material to share, then feel free to contact us.

Paris. Children watch a puppet show for the first time in their lives.
Hi everyone! I know I know, it's been 2 days that I haven’t written the Curiosities. I had a crisis of imagination ;) Otherwise, these last 2 days, we had small problems that occurred on 2 sites and therefore had to arrange it. Starting today, we put a new format of the Curiosities. Now we will have images with stars, bonus pictures and animated gifs. And ‘the morning hello’ won’t be written every day like before but when there is something important to say or make an announcement. Or if you want, for example, to wish someone a happy birthday, you can send me the photo of that person, write a poem or something else and I will post it here in the Curiosities

Cruel way to get revenge, for example, on your cheating girlfriend. You buy her this “charming” bikini, go to the beach, she goes to bathe, after three minutes bikini totally dissolves in water and you’re just looking at her reaction while people around applaud. What would be more cruel is to take pictures and leave her there :)))

When you play in a movie, you often have to show emotions with your face. Here is an example with Jennifer Lopez. Ok, it’s more to show you pics of Jennifer Lopez than to show you her talent ;)) (11 pics)
Hi! I got my computer repaired this morning, I will never vacuum it again ;)) By the way, there was half a kilo of dust in the system unit. Long ago, when I was not working yet on Izismile, I went to other websites and gladly watch any cool pictures and videos. Though, I’ve always been thinking, why everybody posts only 5-10 funny pics a day and think it is enough? Thus was born the idea to collect and post a lot of interesting, funny and just unusual pictures and videos in one daily set of news. It seems that we manage to do it since you are still with us. But having such quantities of pictures, I sometimes forget what I have already posted on the site and what not. So, excuse me for the possible repetitions ) Let me remind you that IZI have its own page in two social networks. We have almost 800 on Facebook fans and 300 on Twitter. Join us!

Hi there? Did you have a good rest? May be a barbecue on Sunday afternoon? ;) My weekend was short but productive :) I finally went to do some summer swimming in one of the local swimming pools. Well, that was great! From bad news: I had a problem with my computer, it’s just crashed and I had to give it into a repair shop and go working at my friend’s house. So, I’ll be short, because it’s been a long time since I installed at his place ;))) But I managed to make this set of news together for today. So, enjoy this beautiful summer day and have fun on the site! See you tomorrow!

Hi! It was an awful day yesterday. Those who yesterday came on the site could see a warning from Google that the site is spreading malicious software and is not recommended to visit. When I saw this I got very upset. I started to check the site. Everything was clean. The problem was detected in an advertisement that we placed. I removed it immediately and applied to Google to remove Izismile from a black list. Google quickly viewed the application and 7 hours ago removed the warning.
I'll say it again. We would never let that happen on purpose, to harm and infect your computers. Our reputation is on stake. Izismile is 6 months old and we never had such incidents. Could someone really think that after six months we decided to pull such a dirty trick? ) Never! We would never do it even for all the money in the world :) Because we appreciate you and your opinion about us is very important. Good Friday to you and have an excellent weekend. See you on Monday!

Hey everybody! Three working days passed by very quickly. In truth, I don’t have time to do all the stuff I want to. And there’s a lot of stuff.

The twin sisters who've spent £60k on cosmetic surgery to always look the same. Like many identical twins, Jo and Kerry Burton have always done everything in tandem - from coming down with chickenpox to donning tutus for ballet lessons. So when Jo decided to have cosmetic surgery on her nose, Kerry naturally followed suit. The sisters have since spent £60,000 on a host of operations - all carried out at the same time by the same doctors - to ensure they cannot be told apart. Clickable.
