Accessories

r2 sarong

Summer will be here before you know it, and this R2-D2 sarong is going to look great on the beach. You might even want to accessorize with a matching hair band.

Truth be told, everything in RoobyLane’s Etsy store is fantastic. It’s loaded with nerdy skirts, bags, scarves and more.

sailor moon tiara

The Sailor Moon wedding we featured last month was fantastic, but there’s one thing it didn’t have—this gorgeous tiara.

The Sailor Moon Serenity Crystal Wedding Tiara was created by famed tiara designer Taro Kamitani and it comes encrusted with Swarovski crystals and synthetic pearls that are placed by hand.

So yeah… expensive. Like, 370,000-yen ($3,100) expensive. Still, if that’s a small price to pay to have the nostalgically nerdy wedding of your dreams then by all means go for it. Bandai will be offering the tiara for pre-order beginning in March.

A complete listing of the tools included hasn’t been released yet, but you may notice one glaring omission right off the bat: a freaking watch. Thankfully, the company is covering that base and plans to sell the Tread with swiss-made timepieces in the fall, while the basic bracelet is due out this summer.

Hit the jump to catch a glimpse of some of the Tread’s tools along with the upcoming watch.

steampunkheartbeat

Nico-Tech (NicoNico) is a site that’s popular with hobbyists, and one user named Frisk_P recently shared this sexy steampunk creation.

Frisk has a thing for fashion and steampunk, so he created a unique steampunk heart rate monitor that actually works! Basically, it’s a modern heart monitor that’s attached to a thigh garter. The monitor features a heart rate circuit board that reads blood flow via a photoelectric transistor (so yeah, it’s not steam-powered). Then Frisk added a few rivets and brass fixtures to give it a real Victorian vibe. You can check out a video of the monitor in action after the break.

Also, Frisk has some other unique fashion-y steampunk projects that he’s shared on Twitter in the past, and we posted some of those below as well.

These Doctor Who (or “Doctor Shoe” as it were) sneakers feature an allover print of the TARDIS that make them perfect for taking on all your adventures. They’re available in a range of sizes for both men and women. The top part of the sneaker actually zips off and you can swap it out for other styles, but why would you ever give up the TARDIS?

The Sony PlayStation Wallet

The wallet should be obsolete. I’m looking forward to the day when I can use my phone to pay for things outside of Whole Foods. Sooner or later, even our IDs will be on there.

However, since we still need to carry one around, it might as well look like an obsolete (but awesomely nostalgic) piece of technology.

This PlayStation wallet is officially licensed and will hold all of our paper money and stupid plastic cards with magnetic strips.

groot mickey ears 2

Jenny Rae is one of the most creative people I follow on the interwebs. It doesn’t matter if she’s DisneyBounding, crafting, or making videos – everything she does is awesome. She recently put together a DisneyBound take on Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy and made a pair of matching tree-like mouse ears for the occasion. The internet squealed in adoration so she decided to put some of the spectacular Groot mouse ears in her Etsy store.

The bad news? The six pairs she made have already been sold. The good news? She might make more. Keep your eye on Lil Rae Cakes.

See another picture and Jenny Rae’s DisneyBound Groot ensemble after the break.
