sweater - gremlins

This is the perfect time of the year to stock up on “ugly” sweaters, and Mondo has a couple of new offerings to help you get ready for the holidays. They teamed up with Middle of Beyond (the makers of this striking Cthulhu sweater) to release designs based on Fargo and Gremlins. The sweaters are colorful, and since they’re made from 100% heavy knit acrylic, they’re sure to be warm – even if you’re in Minnesota and even if someone trys to get water on the Mogwai.

The sweaters are available for pre-order and will ship in December.

See the Fargo design after the break.

We’ve previously featured adorable Luna and Artemis earrings from Nerdy But Still Girly’s etsy shop, and now there are even more wonderful styles to decorate your lobes. All of them feature a front stud that is the character’s face with a back that looks like the bodies.

Skirt - wonder woman

Etsy is a delightful place because you never know what sort of gems you’ll find there. One place to look for treasure is Seams Nostalgic. The shop specializes in vintage glamour, and they’ve managed to blend that with superheros and sci-fi.

Owned by Abi Casey, the shop has a whole line of classy circle skirts featuring heroes like Wonder Woman, Black Widow, Captain America, and more. Some of the designs are obvious, but others are subtle and can be worn to the office. These would be ideal for a ’50s superhero cosplay group. Just saying. Keep in mind the skirts are made to order and are ready to ship in 4-6 weeks.

The weather is turning colder and pretty soon you’ll be freezing so you’ll need a scarf to keep warm. This roll-up Pokéball scarf is just the thing with it’s red, black, and white pattern. This two-ply scarf is handmade with acrylic yarn and measures 6′ 5″ long. It looks like a regular striped scarf when it’s around your neck, but roll it up and you have an instant Pokéball.

dark link shoes

There’s Link and then there’s Dark Link. Retailer Bobsmade (we’ve featured his amazing work we’ve featured several times in the past) has captured both sides of the Legend of Zelda hero’s personality on these hand painted Chucks. They’re so detailed and pretty that I’d be afraid to wear them and get them dirty!

If you need a pair of your own, you can place a custom order. The studio’s artists paint on a white canvas shoe and will add any design and colors you like.

harry potter tattoo

This tattoo was based on concept art for art for Order of the Phoenix. It’s the same person behind that amazing Hogwarts tattoo we featured a while back. Needless to say, this is turning out to be one hell of a Harry Potter sleeve.

iron man hand

Mechanical designer Pat Starace may have created one of the coolest prosthetics ever with this Iron Man 3D-printed glove.

It’s a functional prosthetic that can be fitted with a number of technical and fun additions from LED “lasers” to voice control. In essence, a child can overcome a physical challenge and feel like a superhero at the same time.

Pat’s hoping to put this into mass production, however, he’s currently taking individual requests for now. I hope someone decides to help him develop these because I think it’s an amazing idea.

Check out the video after the break.
