When it comes to the debate over impractical female superhero costumes, Emma Frost is always in the conversation. X-Men fan Terry Blas decided to take on the problem, but he needs your help.

To that end he created The Emma Frost Project and asked readers to show off their ideas for what a thoroughly modern and fashionably Frost might wear. Feel free to submit your designs to share with other Frost fans.

Makeup artist Luca Luce has created some very realistic 3D images on his own hands. They’re both impressive and super creepy with examples that look like his skin has cracked open or tentacles are bursting from inside his body.

Check out more of his work after the break.

The amazing prop makers at Hex Mortis are at it again, this time with new Black Templar Champion helmets from Warhammer 40k. The folks at HM make most of their stuff for private collectors or film and TV projects, so these are likely going to a very loving home.

They sure are pretty.

jewelbots-coding-bracelet

These fashionable Jewelbots bracelets actually teach pre-teen girls the basics of coding. And it looks super fun. Once again I’m so happy more companies are helping to introduce the world of STEM to young girls. I only wish this kind of thing was around when I was younger.

The bracelet itself is a fairly simple design with one button and four different colored LED lights. The super fun part comes in when it’s paired with the iPhone or Android app. Girls can program a wide variety of functions that include adding their friends to color-coded groups so the bracelet will light up when nearby. “Secret” messages can be also sent to friends through vibration sequences.

Check out more images and the Kickstarter project video after the break.
