I’ll admit, $350 for a mei tai baby carrier is absurdly expensive. But you have to ask yourself: how badly do you want your child to get into Hogwarts? With these awesomely nerdy mei tais from ObiMama, you might even be able to influence the Sorting Hat.

Each little Hogwarts uniform comes complete with a silk tie and Irish linen. Check out the rest of the houses after the break…

100 years of beauty

If you look back across the decades, you’ll spot some very clear trends in hair and makeup styles. Cut Video took that observation and turned it into a minute long video that features the popular look from each decade applied to one model. I’d like to revisit several of these eras.

Watch the transformations in the video after the break.

paper scarf 1

Take notes and stay warm with this fashionable paper scarf from Little Factory. It looks like a sheet of notebook paper, and the lines are embroidered on rather than printed. The actual material is Tyvek which is the impossible to tear stuff used for industrial purposes and sometimes for envelopes and other packaging. Besides looking neat and being water resistant, you can also write on it just like you would with regular paper. This scarf would make a wonderful gift for a writer.

leggings - rebel alliance

I’ve seen a lot of leggings over the past few years, but these designs from Etsy seller Deela Designs stand out. The leggings are made from black matte spandex and feature shiny lamé looking spandex appliques for the symbols. She has Star Wars leggings available with the Rebel Alliance symbol in red and the Empire symbol in gold, and I want both of them.

The leggings are made to order and turnaround time is two to three weeks.

See the Empire design and leggings from Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Trek after the break.

laser

You can channel your inner spy with this watch that shoots a real, working laser. It’s not just for looks either—it will actually destroy stuff as demonstrated in this video. This gadget has carbon fiber-accents and an integrated 1,500-milliwatt blue laser that will fire for five to ten minutes before the battery dies.

It’s the work of Patrick Priebe who isn’t sharing the details of exactly how he made the thing, because can you just imagine the chaos? He is considering selling them in very small quantities at a price somewhere over $300. Hey, if you’re a globetrotting spy, that’s just a drop in the bucket.
