attack-on-titan-scout-regiment-juniors-leggings-pre-order-3-1

So, you’re ready to take on the Titans, huh? Well, if you’re going to line up with the rest of the Scout Regiment and volunteer to become walking finger food, then you’re going to have to look the part. I suggest pre-ordering these AOT Scout Regiment Juniors Leggings (shipment slated for November). As an added bonus, these leggings are actually bite-proof too.

Just kidding! No, you’re probably going to get bitten in half.

m6

This incredible makeup is the work of Laura Jenkinson who is a London-based makeup artist. She used her talents to turn her mouth into different cartoon characters. It’s surreal and amazing because the characters are so well-done, and look more than a little freaky when you take them in with the rest of her face.

Summer will soon be over and when the weather turns you’ll be glad you have these Attack on Titan Survey Corps snuggie-style blankets to keep warm. You can choose either a male or female version, complete with cape. If you’re feeling like causing trouble, you can opt for the colossus version instead. Preorder now for delivery in November.

omote

Projecting computer graphics onto surfaces isn’t anything new, but the technology is becoming more and more precise. Nobumichi Asai and his team have managed to create a system called Omote to track the movements of a human face and project images and makeup upon it to look realistic. It’s amazing that the graphics can fit over the curves and lines of a face and look natural.

Though Asai has worked with CGI projection mapping in the past, his focus has typically been on objects like buildings and cars. Omote is a new challenge, and I can’t wait to see how it develops.

Watch the technology in action in the video after the break.

GeekiesCollage

On Sunday the second annual Geekie Awards took place in Los Angeles, celebrating geek culture with 12 different categories. This year a new category was added that focused on the growing area of geek fashion. The Fashion and Armor category, presented by Vanichi Magazine, was added after awards creator and showrunner Kristen Nedopak saw the fashions people wore on the red carpet at last year’s event.

“As a female geek, I’ve never hidden the side of me that embraces being a woman, and that means dressing up or down when I please. ‘Geek Couture’ has grown tremendously in the last few years, and more women are realizing they can still be geeks and look beautiful too!” Nedopak told Fashionably Geek. “We’re seeing designers getting creative with the art of fashion in these genres, and we wanted to honor that in this year’s show.”

There were five nominees in the category specializing in armor, steampunk, corsetry, and more. The winner will receive a full feature fashion spread in an issue of Vanichi Magazine.

Find out who won and get a glimpse of all the nominees’ stylish, geeky products after the break!

batman harley earrings

Harley meets Batman for this fun pair of earrings from Hot Topic. The harlequin diamonds on the bat logo really do kind of work. I wonder what Mistah J would have to say about that?

nintendo belly warmer

Ever heard of belly warmers? I’m guessing most of us haven’t. The accessory, also called a haramaki, looks like a corset, but it’s design is intended to keep your stomach warm. It used to be worn under clothes, but Japanese company Hobonichi has been treating the garment as a fashionable piece of clothing. And now, they’ve gone geeky with them! They’ve teamed up with Nintendo to make belly warmers featuring Super Mario Bros. and Mr. Saturn. I think they look cozy.

Check out more photos of the belly warmers after the break.

When it comes to fashionable shinies for Browncoats, QMx really has some of the best. This time, they’re holding up your pants (no expectation that they’ll be brown) with their new Engineered By Firefly belt buckle.

This molded pewter-finish belt buckle sports an exact replica of Serenity’s builder plaque, measures 4 inches across and 2.5 inches high, is made of a strong, lightweight metal alloy, and fits belts up to 1.75 inches (4.45 cm) wide.

QMx currently has a waiting list for the item and you’ll be notified once it’s available for ordering. Y’know, for those days when you’re not up for wearing suspenders.

We’ve previously featured console war medals from Supermandolini and now there are desktop war medals for those who prefer bashing the keys on a keyboard over a controller. There’s even one for handheld games, so no matter how you game, you’ve earned a medal for your efforts.
