Oh, look! It’s Nessie! And the picture isn’t blurry!

Oops… it’s just a person wearing a Nessie costume. Etsy seller missnessamonster is a big fan of the Loch Ness Monster, and she loves making costumes. In fact, she’ll make you your own handmade Nessie costume (there are versions for kids as well) for a fairly reasonable price. You’ll have everyone flipping out at the beach this summer that’s for sure.

Harley Quinn is the ultimate crazy and sexy villain, and this hot little number would totally have been in her closet. From the product description:

“This knee-length number has four diamonds on both the left and right chest and a removable black belt, ripe for all your “I have a black belt” jokes. The mallet you have to provide yourself.”

Your puddin’ couldn’t possibly resist.

allen-gale-etsy-costume

Meet your new fairy godmother, Allen Gale. Inspired by his grandmother who was a professional seamstress for over 60 years, Allen became passionate about theater and costume design. Although mostly self taught, he earned his degree in Costume Design and Construction to make his passion and unbelievable talent a career.

His Etsy shop currently has magnificent costumes made with high quality fabric that look like they just came off the set of a live action Disney princess movie. The detailing is incredible and Allen models almost all of them himself! Actually, he makes princess Aurora, Belle, and Ariel look stunning. I’m absolutely in love with all his dresses and he completely captures the character at heart.

Take a look at his fantastic work after the break.

labyrinth-door-knockers-earringslabyrinth-door-knockers-earrings

Remember the most hilarious pair of door knockers in Labyrinth? Well now you can own your very own handsome mumbler and hard-of-hearing figures as awesome jewelry from Etsy shop owner ArtByAelia.

She sculpts each knocker by hand using polymer clay, then casts it in resin, and carefully paints them by hand to give them that aged brass-look. The earrings from in three styles; dangle, post, or clips (for non-pierced ears) and all made with nickle-free findings). Her attention to detail in the sculpts are spot on to the originals, just don’t ask them for directions.

It’s hard not to love these Pokemon Mega Ring-inspired bracelets by Etsy seller Toriroz. From the description:

Bracelets are hand cast with resin, and the gem cast in clear epoxy. The details are made with a metallic vinyl decal for that crisp clean look. The back is open for easy wear-ability, as the plastic is slightly bendable.

And the best part is there are several different designs to choose from. Head after the break to see the bracelet being worn.

the dress

It may be hard to believe, but thanks to the Internet, “The Dress” is now a cultural touchstone. Many of us will be able to look back on that day and say we knew where we were when we first saw The Dress. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

What is a good thing is that The Dress has already made it’s way onto a design in our Nerd Approved Shirt Store and it’s on sale for $14 for a limited time.

Peter Griffin in The Dress is something that never would have existed without all of us and our need to understand the important mysteries of life.

All hail the Internet.

Marauders-map-pendant

I solemnly swear that I just about died when I saw this teeny tiny Harry Potter Marauder’s map pendant. A truly marvelous wizard shop BeeHappyShop on Etsy makes the tiny locket by hand to actually hold a Hogwart’s Map inside!

The front of the locket is covered with a lense and the back is a thick paper with the words “I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good.” The pendant can be secured on it’s 19-inch silvery chain to keep close to your heart and hidden from professors.

After the break check out pics of the open locket and map.

firefly bag

How do I describe this Firefly purse and make up bag from Crescent City Couture as anything but adorably kawaii? I mean, come ON. If you’re a Browncoat and you have to admit this is pretty gorram shiny. I love Kaylee’s parasol.
