    This is the stunning Calvin & Hobbes time-traveling dinosaur scene that artist and mother Laura Hartrich of Etsy store Tiny Scissor Times embroidered for her son's birthday. It is most impressive. You know, when I was in middle school my mom embroidered my initials into the b... / Continue →

    These are the Iron Throne high heels made by jewelry designer and shoe customizer Nixxi Rose. She used painted sword cocktail stirrers for all the swords. Pretty clever. I also included some BONUS Freddy Krueger, Hellraiser, zombie and Breaking Bad heels she's created after ... / Continue →

    This is the very impressively constructed music video for metal band Throne's song 'Tharsis Sleeps.' The whole thing was shot frame-by-frame using individually embroidered scenes. That...sounds time consuming. Thankfully, they used a computerized embroidery machine instead o... / Continue →

    This is the beanbag Iron Throne made by Isabell Kiko of Nerd By Night (but what are you by day?!). She even includes patterns and instructions if you want to make your own, WHICH YOU DO. Sure yours won't look as good and will start losing its beans immediately, but hey -- you... / Continue →

    This is the crocheted (I always feel weird typing that because it looks so much like crotched) unicorn mask for dogs made by Flickr user roko20. Pretty magical, right? Everyone wants to ride a unicorn. I mean, in addition to riding dragons and pterodactyls. If you could onl... / Continue →

    This is the Big Lebowski rug made by Etsy seller OldTymeNotions. I would have a hard time putting my feet on that. My lips, no problem. You want it, I want it, it costs $800 so neither one of us is going to get it. You like how I haven't made a 'tying the room together' ref... / Continue →

    I was bald until I was two. These are the Cabbage Patch inspired yarn wigs for babies made by Etsy seller TheLillyPad. She'll custom make you one for $33.50 or you can just buy the pattern for $6.69. I'll admit it -- I had a Cabbage Patch Doll growing up. Plus on my fifth b... / Continue →

    This is the alien facehugger winter mask hand-knit and sold by Etsy seller Knitrocious ($150). It looks pretty accurate. Plus nobody will think you're weird for wearing it. And if they do, send them over to my place and I'll answer the door wearing nothing but a gas mask and... / Continue →

    Every year around this time I hang a bunch of paper snowflakes from the ceiling of the living room for a little holiday ambiance. Then I set fire to a trashcan in the middle of the room and pretend I'm an Eskimo. These are the cut-it-yourself Game of Thrones house sigil snowf... / Continue →
