shelfpack

Leaving clothes in your luggage during hotel stays leaves them a wrinkly mess. On the other hand, I’m too lazy to put my clothes in the drawers. ShelfPack is the solution I desperately need.

The ShelfPack features stacked shelves and telescoping supports that are simple to load up with clothes and then pack away.

It’s a little too big for carry-on, and it is a little expensive at $350, but being able to conveniently organize your clothes and skip using a hotel room dresser does sound rather appealing.

Just take a few minutes to appreciate this League of Legends Draven cosplay by Leon Chiro. He’s joined by Mis Hatred as Jinx who also did a fantastic job.

Paul Feig continues his (awesome) habit of breaking news on Twitter by tweeting out pictures of new props and costumes from his upcoming Ghostbusters movie.

This morning, we got the picture up top with the hashtag #whatyougonnashoot. Last night, there were four costumes with the hashtag #whatyougonnawear.

I feel like, at this point, he can just start ending his tweets with #youknowyouregonnaseeit.

I’m warning you ahead of time that this is going to get you in the feels, so have tissues handy.

13 year-old Matthew Tillyer attended Celebration in cosplay like a lot of young Star Wars fans. However, instead of cosplaying a character from the movies, he went as a vehicle. Yep, Matthew designed a TIE cosplay for his wheelchair and his dad built it.

Matthew was paralyzed from the neck down after a bout with pneumonia in 2013. When members of The 501st saw Matthew at the show (winning first place in the costume contest no less), they were so moved by his love for Star Wars, his story, and his positive attitude that they decided to make his dream of becoming a TIE pilot come true.

501st members from garrisons all over the world contributed everything from a helmet to the boots to outfit him as a TIE pilot, and even raised $1,500 for medical expenses! Members of the Imperial Sands Garrison and the Golden Gate Garrison surprised Matthew with both the outfit and an honorary membership into the 501st.

Matthew still has challenges to face and is dealing with ongoing medical problems, however his smile, which was already pretty bright, is mega-watt after his experience with the 501st.

htri_dragonscale_handbag_holding

ThinkGeek’s legendary Handbag Of Holding now comes in a dragonscale version. And you can feel good about your purchase because it was ethically sourced. It used to be that wave after wave of knights were slaughtered to take down dragons for stylish and functional bags like this. However, we’ve been assured that these dragons were free-range and died of natural causes.

Like previous handbags in the series, the dragonscale version is plenty big with 15 pockets to hold all of your stuff. Check out more pictures after the break…

While QMx makes all sorts of collectibles, their heart belongs to Firefly and they’ve got some shiny new debuts for SDCC. The first is a 14k gold and sterling silver version of their Leaf On The Wind pendant which also comes with a sterling silver plated 24″ chain and a velvet-lined wooden box that looks straight out of The ‘Verse.

The other item is an official replica of Jayne’s cunning hat. Both Firefly costume designer Shawna Trpcic and actor Adam Baldwin have said that the pattern and colors are very true to the original.

Both the pendant and the hat will be available at SDCC and online.
