Sharknado is a legend among craptastic movies, and now it’s also a purse thanks to Fashionably Geek reader Elyse, who made it herself for Phoenix Comic Con:

“I made a Sharknado purse for the occasion, complete with plastic sharks. I was inspired by the movie (so bad it’s good) to make a purse so hideous that it’s actually cute. I don’t know if I succeeded but I had fun making it.

I think she succeeded on both fronts. She was also witness to a little cosplaying for Wreck It Ralph and Bioshock.

Who couldn’t use a few extra hugs, especially when they come from an adorable plush octopus backpack? Tumblr user Jen made this backpack but, sadly, it is not for sale. So you’ll just have to love him from afar and be jealous of all the octopus hugs she’s getting.

So, you’ve escaped the maniacal mobile pincer grasps of GLaDOS and finished Portal 2. Good for you. Celebrate your ability to outwit insane robots by picking up this officially licensed Portal 2 Aperture Laboratories messenger bag. It features Aperture’s distinct ’80s logo, a front pocket for small items, a phone pocket, and enough space to hold two defective turrets and a whole lot of real confetti. The flap also features Portal instructional diagrams too. Sadly, the bag does not come with cake. Bummer.

I’ve got a surprise for you after this next test. Not a fake, tragic surprise like last time. A real surprise, with tragic consequences. And real confetti this time. The good stuff. Our last bag. Part of me’s going to miss it, I guess-but at the end of the day it was just taking up space.
