Protect yourself from mysterious particles that fall from the sky with this Large Hadron Collider Umbrella. It’s made of polyester with a steel shaft and fiberglass ribs to keep it from flipping inside out when the days get windy. Now that’s some mind blowing science right there.

dr who princess leggings 1

If your closet needs a dose of cute, all you need to do is add these Doctor Who Disney Princess leggings from Living Dead. They feature the TARDIS and a whole bunch of chibi style princesses as the various generations of the Time Lord. Here’s how they break down:

First Doctor- Snow White (1937)
Second Doctor- Cinderella (1950)
Third Doctor- Aurora (1959)
Fourth Doctor- Ariel (1989)
Fifth Doctor- Belle (1991)
Sixth Doctor- Jasmine (1992)
Seventh Doctor- Pocahontas (1995)
Eighth Doctor- Mulan (1998)
Ninth Doctor- Tiana (2009)
Tenth Doctor- Rapunzel (2010)
Eleventh Doctor- Merida (2012)

I think I sort of need these leggings, and I want to wear a bow tie with them. Ariel as the Fourth Doctor is my favorite.

Ok, I’m still waiting for science to deliver on a lot of cool future stuff: teleportation, flying cars, talking apes, and the ability to shoot spiderwebs like Spider-Man. Well, it seems that I and Patrick Priebe, a hardware hacker, think very much alike. He wanted to build a web-shooter too, but since all those brainy scientists (grrr) haven’t come up with super-strong artificial spiderwebs yet, Priebe had to make do with building a wrist-worn electromagnetic miniature harpoon launcher.

As you will see in the video after the reak, Priebe’s device boasts a laser sight and a retractable harpoon that’s connected using fishing line.

beard copy

Tormund Giantsbane (played by Kristofer Hivju), is a wildling leader in HBO’s Game of Thrones thanks, in no small part, to his epic beard. Fortunately for us, Hivju took a break from his wildling business to teach us his badass ways via YouTube. In his latest videos, he shows us how to grow an epic beard and how to shave it off like a warrior.

If Loki’s helmet is going to be printed on leggings, it’s only appropriate for it to be printed on gold lamé. These shiny leggings from WeLoveFine are made from spandex and are therefore super stretchy. Though they’d work great with Loki t-shirts, they also lend themselves to everyday cosplay ensembles. Pair them with a hunter green tank top or tunic to embody the trickster.

If you’ve ever worn glasses, you know the annoying feeling of them sliding down your nose. Even properly fitted frames slide because of sweat and body oils. But, fear not, there’s a Kickstarter for a product called Nerdwax that supposedly keeps your glasses in place. Genius! All you need to do is apply the beeswax-based product onto the bridge and nosepads of your glasses. It can last anywhere from two hours to all day depending on activity and how much you’re sweating. I’d love to try this out.

haunted mansion nails

The Haunted Mansion in Disney theme parks is full of creepy. From the dark and dusty wallpaper to the ghosts to floating candles – I still get chills when I go on the ride. Sometimes those chills are from the air conditioning, but it counts.

Anyway, if you’d like to keep the vibe of the Haunted Mansion with you at all times, Disney has a fancy tutorial to help you transform your fingernails. You’ll add haunting stripes and burning candles. Oooh, spooky!

Check out the full tutorial after the break.
