predator son of a bitch patch

Remember that scene in Predator when Dutch and Dillon first see each other? Dutch says, “You son of a bitch!” as a friendly greeting, and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers clasp their muscled arms together in a gratuitous way. This silly but great patch from Future Zine captures that moment. It might be the greatest patch ever made. It should be a merit badge or something.

Check out the scene from the movie after the break…

unicorn dinosaur shirt 1

There’s no battle like one between mythical creatures, and this vibrant design from Black Milk Clothing has it all. The front of the polyester tee features a beautiful but fierce unicorn while the back of the tee has a robot dinosaur that shoots lasers from its head. The fight plays out against a background of space and rainbows. Tell me this isn’t the greatest shirt in the history of ever.

See the back of the shirt with the robot dinosaur after the break.

r1

We’ve previously featured a beautiful set of C3PO and R2-D2 wedding bands from Juan Hidalgo and this time he has created rings for another sci-fi favorite. This pair of rings is inspired by Stargate and is incredibly detailed with multiple stones and engraved symbols. He describes them thusly:

White and Yellow gold Stargate themed wedding rings, with saphires and a diamond. One of the most challenging rings I’ve ever made and surely the most detailed weddings rings ever made.

The white ring on the outside has 6 Stargate Chevrons with a saphire each and the Earth symbol in yellow gold with a diamond. On the inside under each of the symbols there are engraved the the 7 symbols of the Earth dialing secuence.

The yellow ring on the outside has engraved 6 mathematical and geometrical symbols and representations with tile texture and the Earth symbol in white gold with a Saphire. On the inside under each of the outside engravings there are the 7 egyptian numerals (1, 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000 y 1000000).

By the way she said YES!!!

It’s a gorgeous set and a wonderful way for two Stargate fans to start their life together.

1dda_sw_bowling_bag_style_purses

These Star Wars Bowling Bag Style purses come in either either Boba Fett or R2-D2 designs and I’m betting they’ll look pretty awesome the next time you want to go retro on a night out.

Do they make Star Wars bowling shoes? Now I have to do some research.

dc bombshells

The DC Bombshells come to life in this WinterCon 2014 cosplay by the Cosbaes x Bitches Of Cosplay. As a fan of the DC Bombshells, I think these ladies did a great job.

The photography by Jaycee Estrella definitely takes it up a notch as well.

beard baubles 1

If your facial hair isn’t in the holiday spirit, Beard Baubles may be the solution. The shiny accessories were designed by London ad agency Grey London. Employees of the agency, Mike Kennedy and Pauline Ashford, were given the job of coming up with something different for the company Christmas card, and it looks like they succeeded.

The proceeds of the beard decorations go a charity called Beard Season (they raise awareness about melanoma), and when the founder of the charity shared the above photo on Instragram, everyone started placing orders. So many people became interested that Grey London is now sold out of the wacky accessory. They’re hoping to add more stock before the holiday.
