On December 28th 1974 the Fourth Doctor, brilliantly and memorably portrayed by Tom Baker, made his debut. Along with a delightfully odd sense of humor, a manic smile and, of course, his trademark scarf. A scarf that so captured the imagination of scifi fans around the world that it’s one of a handful of clothing items with its own fanbase dedicated to recreating the thing as accurately as possible.
During the early ’80s, the BBC regularly received letters from the public asking how they could get their own Whovian neckwear, and the then-new BBC Enterprises (the commercial arm of the company, now known as BBC Worldwide) responded in quite possibly the most BBC way possible – by providing instructions for knitting your own. A standard memo was prepared to respond to such queries. That memo was shared online by 93Fangshadow, and you can see it below. [click to continue…]
Last week we featured makeup brushes that look like wizard wands. They’re awesome, but maybe you’re more of a Sailor Moon kind of gal. If that’s the case then Premium Bandai has you covered with this Rainbow Moon Chalice blush (classic pink) and Moon Stick / Spiral Heart Moon Rod brushes. Check out more pics below.

The creator of Obvious Plant, Jeff Wysaski, is planning a trip to Barcelona, which is often called “the pickpocket capital of the world.” Concerned about the safety of his Subway sandwich club card, and not willing to endure the embarrassment of wearing a wallet chain, he struck upon a novel alternative that not only served some small amount of justice to any unwitting sod who tries to purloin his personables, but is also pretty bloody funny.
Find out what Jeff did, and what the hilarious end result is, below. [click to continue…]
In an effort to get kids excited about bike safety, Simon Higby (DDB Stockholm), Clara Prior Knock and project manager Jacob Beermann (DDB Copenhagen) teamed up with Danish company MOEF to create a new helmet inspire by hair from Lego and Playmobil figures.
Sadly, the concept has not yet been picked up, but is clearly begging for someone to make it a retail reality. Check out a video of the creative process below. [click to continue…]
First it was gloves with cats pointing their tails, and now cats are punching anything you point at.
The really beautiful part of these Fellisimo gloves is the special conductive material on the forefinger and thumb, so you don’t even have to take your gloves off when you need to swipe your phone for things.
Fleece-lined on the inside and fur-lined on the wrists, these Cat Punch gloves come in three styles; Kijitora/brown-grey tabby, Sabatora/mackerel tabby, and Shirokuro Hachiware which is a black and white cat with a very cool forehead patch. Check out more pics and a video below. [click to continue…]

Fall and winter mean it’s time to bust out the gloves, and I can’t think of anything more awesome to wear than these dragon scale gloves by Etsy seller Mareshop.

The gloves have been getting a lot of attention recently, so they are out of stock at the time of writing. But Mareshop say they’re crocheting as fast as their little fingers will let them, so I’d say it’s worth checking back. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Polish fashion designers Maja and Celina Debowska of the Etsy shop celapiu have cleverly crafted these felt animal scarves and stoles.

Bioworld has revealed their merchandise for Rogue One and I really love some of these pieces—and the the color scheme is awesome. Instead of the traditional orange and white, we’re getting some muted earth tones here (except for the Scarif trooper bag, which is fantastically tropical). Perfect for being stealthy about what side you’re on.
There’s a variety of options from bags to wallets to hats, some of which you can check out below. [click to continue…]
About a month ago, Loungefly teased a new Marvel line by sharing a picture of the special pouches they use to packaged their items. Then, about once a week, you’d get another sneak peek at a Marvel item; glimpses of Iron Man, peeks at Deadpool, and a snippet of Hulk.
Most recently, they shared a new Black Widow tote and a Captain Marvel wallet. I’m sure there’s more we haven’t seen yet.
All I know is, Marvel’s coming to Loungefly and that means my wallet’s in trouble. That’s okay, because I’ll just replace it with one of these. Check out more teasers below. [click to continue…]
