    This is the very impressive Rocket Racoon costume created by Shoko and Jérôme Cosplay (links to their Facebook with a bunch of work-in-progress shots). It took about a month to complete and my roommate just walked by and noted, "I'm not even a furry and I would hit that." He ... / Continue →

    These are the sets of Pikachu and Hello Kitty samurai armor built by DeviantARTist Andihandro. As far as samurai armor goes, they're not that intimidating looking. Which means they could probably only be worn by the most fearsome samurai. It's like, you don't have to look th... / Continue →

    This is the mashup weapon forged by the folks of Mat At Arms that combined all four ninja turtle weapons: Donatello's bō, Leonardo's ninjato, Raphael's sai, and Michelangelo's nunchaku. The result...is whatever the hell this thing is. A bōjatosaichaku? I dunno, but I can a... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, more legible version right HERE. This is the Delta-V subway map of our solar system created by Redditor Ucarion. What the hell is Delta-V? A copy/pasted explanation courtesy of Wikipedia while I pour iced coffee in my eyeballs: In astrodynamics a Δv or delta-v... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of Youtuber and LEGO fanatic Mike (aka BricksNerd) building the new 2,532 piece LEGO Simpsons house set. I don't really have much else to say except 1. I wonder if it qualifies for the BJ contest and 2. I just watched the whole thing and now I don't feel l... / 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 Wreath of Khan made by Annie Shapiro. Man, that Ricardo Montalbán -- he was a handsome dude. Remember Fantasy Island? My fantasy was always to go be seduced by Mr. Roarke. "What about Tattoo?" He could ride around on my shoulders until things started to get too... / Continue →

    This is the stainless steel handgun that was 3-D printed by the folks at Solid Concepts in Texas (where else?) using a direct metal laser sinistering (DMLS) technique. Impressive. Not impressive enough for me to want to fire, but I've never had a gun explode up in my hands be... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 'Man at Arms' Youtube series (previously: Link's Master Sword) featuring blacksmith Tony Swatton forging Thor's hammer Mjolnir in real life. He doesn't actually use the heart of a dying star though (hopefully for reasons obvious to you), instead opting... / Continue →

    These are the Death Star weed grinders made and sold by Etsy seller Pyroteeze ($22). If I'm not mistaken, they're made by filling these Death Star ice cube molds with polymer clay, then mashing the two halves of a cheap grinder inside and painting the whole thing. Plus they'r... / Continue →
