pokemon go accessories

By now, several of us have begun our journeys as trainers in Niantic Labs’ hit new augmented reality game, Pokemon Go. The new mobile title based on Nintendo’s hit game franchise is helping people explore their surroundings in new ways, and it’s getting tons of us out of the house. But when it comes to long-haul trips like those required by the game, even the most physically fit trainer can find themselves weary.

So, here are a few suggestions for creating a trainer ensemble that will make your journey a bit easier (which you should cap off with comfortable shoes, of course). [click to continue…]

What happens when two Harry Potter geeks fall in love, plan a tasteful themed wedding, and find just the right photographer?

Magic of course.

Cassie and Lewis Byrom‘s whimsical wedding took place at the Manchester Town Hall, and photographer Kelly Clarke captured the surreal beauty of the event. I have to say, it’s one of the most gorgeous nerdy weddings we’ve ever seen.

Inkwell’s new line of watches feature an array of unique designs for tattoo lovers. In fact, the watches utilize an “exclusive printing technology similar to an actual tattoo with its natural depth of lines and shapes”. The designs are also the work of professional tattoo artists.

However, they need your help to make them a reality.

wedslabyrinth2-600x405Nearly 30 years ago a movie hit the big screen and vividly defined everything glorious about the ’80s in less than two hours. From Jim Henson creatures to the timeless glamour of the late David Bowie, Labyrinth went above and beyond to transport viewers to a different world.

It was also a box office bomb.

However, Labyrinth has become a cult classic in the years since. So, to commemorate the 30th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing the film back to select theaters on September 11th and 14th ahead of the special edition Blu-ray that arrives on September 20th.

Don’t quote us on any actual world records, but Assist Wig claims that this is the cosplay industry’s longest wig. At over 5-feet in length, I’m inclined to believe them.

Available in ten colors (white silver, black, yellow sun, honey blond, rose pink, red orange, purple ash, blackberry, aquamarine, and dark blue) the wig is made of straight fiber locks, and is just long enough for that Sephiroth wig you want to make.

Kids come up with the darnedest crossovers.

Jeremy Marbler constructed this awesome cosplay costume for his six-year old daughter when she wanted to celebrate her favorite fandoms at once. Combining My Little Pony with Doctor Who, this awesome Rainbow Dash Dalek is adorable in a terrifying way. He notes:

My six year old daughter wanted another Doctor Who themed costume after her recent K9 cosplay and she picked a Dalek.  As I was sketching the design, she was playing and yelled out “a My Little Pony Dalek!”

After shaking my head, I asked “A Rainbow Dash Dalek?”

“Yes!” she giggled…  And then looked at me seriously and said “It’s gotta have wings.”

“Wings…  So it’s twenty percent cooler?”

“Yes!!”
