Sure, the Plasma Rifle from the Fallout series might look a little wonky, but it’s one of the best energy weapons in the game.

Cosplayer TheAnti-Lily made this one by hand using wood, PVC pipe bits, green lights and electric cables. As you can see, she nailed all the minor details. It looks like it was ripped straight from the game!

Nixon recently debuted Part II of their “Dark Side Collection”, which features watches, wallets, belts and bags with designs inspired by Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Stormtroopers and Imperial Pilots.

The pieces are loaded with details—but my favorite has to be the Han Solo in carbonite hidden on the Boba Fett band.

Check out some highlights from the collection below.

If there are two things I really like it’s neat hair accessories and stuff with wings. So imagine how charmed (and surprised) I was to see this Maleficent Wings hair bow clip by Etsy seller The Pink Poudo.

They’re each made to order, so feel free to ask for custom colors.

This gorgeous Dragon Egg Jewelry/Trinket Box from Etsy seller PrissyKittyDesigns is fit for a Khaleesi. It’s also made to order, and it stands at 10 inches tall and is about 19 inches around.

She makes it using faux leather, antique brass findings and hinges and violet silk for the interior lining. The top of the egg also features a clay baby dragon perched on top.

Registration is open for runDisney’s Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend, and there will be plenty of events happening between January 14th-17th for participants to choose from.

This year’s event includes a half marathon, the Star Wars 5k & 10K, runDisney races for kids, and the Rebel Challenge (the 10K and Half Marathon combined).

Participants often dress up in Star Wars or Disney cosplay, so the event organizers decided to make the medals just as colorful and unique as the runners themselves.

I know people who will likely be wearing more than one of these awesome medals, which is pretty cool. As you’ll see, Chopper is among these champions.

If you have freckles and feel self conscious about it, don’t fret. Apparently, freckles are in.

A new Kickstarter campaign for Frek Yourself has just launched to fund a semi-permanent freckle kit using their stencil + formula method:

There have always been two problems with creating artificial freckles. First, it’s really hard to create a realistic pattern. Natural freckles have a random pattern & sizing variation, but freckles applied with a pencil are all the same shape of the pencil tip. Second, pencil or makeup freckles smudge really easily. Our product solves both of these problems.

The kit comes with 72 self-adhesive stencils and a rollerball of formula that is similar in formulation to sunless tanner. The freckle patterns look natural and last 2 days. Users who apply Freck Yourself every morning have several layers of faded frecks, which produces incredibly realistic results for four to six weeks.

Check out the project video below for more info.

fluid hair painting top

Mermaid hair, galaxy hair, multi-colored hair—if this is what you’re into than find yourself a salon that knows a thing or two about Fluid Hair Painting. The technique was developed by stylist KL Christoffersen of Cheeky Strut and it is undoubtedly the best way to achieve these looks. He tells Modern Salon:

Because their hair is fanned out, it gives me the ability to thoroughly look over every strand to see how the color melts from top to bottom. Plus, no matter how the client parts their hair you’re able to give them a tailored, multidimensional color because you can visually see how everything will collapse together.

See more pictures and a video after the break to see how it’s done.

glitter roots

Anyone who colors their hair knows that roots are pain, especially if you have multi-colored hair. Let’s face it, that’s a lot of work for a root touch up.

Fortunately, some creative genius thought of covering up the problem with glitter. Super cute or magical dandruff? You decide.

nails inc

As someone who’s self-manicure challenged, I can definitely see the appeal in a new product called Paint Can.

Paint Can by Nails Inc is spray-on nail polish that’s designed to stick to your nails but not your skin. All you need to do is spray paint your nails for about 20 seconds, let it dry and then wash your hands with plain old soap and water. The polish washes off your hands and stays on your nails.

Paint Can will debut on November 12 and it’ll retail for $11 a can. I’m not sure if I’d use it for when I need flawless nails and a perfect manicure, but it would be an awesome time saver on a day-to-day basis.

See it in action after the break.
