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.

sailor-moon-school-uniforms

Sailor Moon cosplay doesn’t have to be just for conventions anymore. In Japan, the ubiquitous sailor uniform fashion trend is considered  “nanchatte“, as in “just for fun.” And with super colorful prints like “Heavenly Flash” and “Glowing Jellyfish” these outfits are too friggin’ cute!

Costume party store Clearstone just announced their line of Sailor Moon inspired uniforms which will be available in March and priced at 7,990 yen (US $66). The ensemble includes the top, skirt, and iconic matching neck ribbon.

transforming-autobot-shield-t-shirt.4

Yes, this shirt actually exists. From the product page:

We’ve applied Cybertronian Hydrophobic invisible ink in the shape of an Autobot logo. But much like the Transformers, you’ll need an alt mode to fully experience this Transformers tee. Simply put, you need to get this shirt wet to see the Autobot symbol. Get there however you like. Maybe you want to earn it in the gym or on a hike. Maybe you want to surprise your friends after a rousing water balloon battle. It’s up to you how you want to surprise the world with your amazing new Autobots shirt.

Or maybe you’re just a really sweaty Transfomer. Transform and roll on some deodorant!

steampunk-gauntlet-arm-ironman

These vintage-styled steampunk gauntlets looks like what Iron Man would have fashioned for himself has he lived in the 1800s.

Etsy shop owner SkinzNhydez makes each custom piece by hand using 8oz veggie tanned leather, LED lights, brass sheets fashioned with rivets and studs, and dyes and finishers to add an aged, worn appearance.

With the level of detail and craftsmanship involved here, each piece takes about a month to complete. You can even provide custom design ideas.

Check out more pics of kick ass gauntlets after the jump.
