3d printed armor

3D printing master Melissa Ng of Lumecluster recently contacted the goddess known as Felicia Day with an idea for a project that would involve creating “a full regalia of armor” for Day to model.

With the help of Shapeways, this is the result. Ahem…holy crap.

Check out a video about the project below.

dominator

In Psycho Pass, a cyberpunk-crime anime, cops carry a futuristic sidearm called the “Dominator”–which, as you can see above, is a pretty apt name. Needless to say, cosplay props don’t get much better than this.

This amazing replica is a one-to-one scale recreation and it features a whole mess of crazy features like 217 RGB LEDs, built-in speakers that play sound effects (as well as 100 quotes from Noriko Hidaka, the actress behind the voice of the gun in the show), a small camera that provides real-time streaming capabilities to a smartphone and touch sensors on the grip that enable you to lock the gun.

However, the main feature is the gun’s ability to shift between “Paralyzer” and “Eliminator” modes just like in the show.

upside-down-wine-glassThe next time you have a dinner party or a wine tasting, bring out this upside down wine glass. Sipping from the stem while the wine stays in the bowl of the glass should confuse and amuse them.

Tell them you get real magical when you’re drunk. It’s the rarest of all drunken personality/behavioral shifts.

Gold Bubble Clothing knows that geek girls have a love for webs and the ladies who sling them, so it makes sense that these Wraith designs have a certain look and feel. The inversion of the white and black gives this clothing line it’s own personality and I like that it comes in two different dress styles and leggings.

You’re going to want to get your wallet out for this one. Make sure it’s full.

Geeky clothing has exploded in the last decade or so, as evidenced by the Doctor Who inspired shirt I’m wearing as I type this. Some of this stuff, like my shirt, is distinctly as the lower-end of casual wear – your Target Jurassic Park shirts and dresses from Hot Topic. Some stuff, however, is distinctly high-end fashion, and has the high-end price tag to boot.

Adding to the growing list of high-end items is this range of Star Wars-inspired jackets from Matchless London. The range is a delightful mix of jackets based on items worn in the movies themselves, meaning you can buy Han Solo’s vest, an awesome jacket inspired by Darth Vader’s ensemble, Leia’s Hoth coat, and the kind of leather coat Obi-Wan Kenobi would’ve worn if he’d been a badass cowboy instead of a Jedi Knight.

Not only that, but they offer women’s cuts of several jackets worn by male characters in the films, including Han Solo’s Empire Strikes Back jacket and – no, but yes! – the coat Finn “borrowed” from Poe in The Force Awakens..

Take a closer look at some of the designs below.

chloe-bruceDaisy Ridley may have done some of her own stunts in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Chloe Bruce was there when serious skills were needed.

Let’s just say she kicks ass with a staff.

She’s also doubled for Zoe Saldana in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jaimie Alexander in Thor: The Dark World. Plus, she’s a World Kickboxing Champion.

Check out the video on Nerd Approved to see her in action…
