Brandon Lee’s daughter wanted to cosplay as Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 for Philadelphia Comic Con, but there was one problem. Disney doesn’t make the merchandise. There isn’t a costume out there for the character, not even her chem-ball purse. So, Lee decided he’d make one from scratch, complete with lights, and the end result is fantastic. She looks absolutely precious!

BB-8 has already captured everyone’s hearts even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still months away from hitting theaters. Nail artist Kayleigh O’Connor has done a 3D version of the little guy in this themed nail art she designed for Star Wars Day. Looks like the perfect manicure for attending the debut. I mean, you probably don’t need your thumb to pick up the tickets.

Activist, author and programmer Tania Katan has started a powerful movement to inspire women to enter the tech industry. #ItWasNeverADress has transformed a universal symbol for women into something much more meaningful. Katan wanted to “shift perceptions and assumptions about women and the audacious, sensitive, and powerful gestures they make every single day.”

“In science, technology, arts, mathematics, politics, houses of worship, on the streets, and in our homes, insightful women are often uninvited, overlooked, or just plain dismissed”

“It Was Never a Dress will foster necessary conversations, vital voices, and images from around the world that honor ALL women. When we see women differently… we see the world differently!”

Her words speak volumes and I hope this campaign continues to grow to support women in STEM, and to bring awareness to young girls who want to explore all their career options.

Take a look at more campaign photos after the break.

pocahontas

Disney Style is all about Disney-inspired fashion. Their latest video is a time-lapse featuring a model being transformed into seven different princesses including Elsa, Belle, Snow White, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Ariel.

I can’t imagine how long hair and makeup actually took to complete, but the adorable morphing princess has a super cute and contagious smile throughout the entire process. And she totally pulls off every single princess perfectly.

Watch the super fun video after the break.

This beautiful little girl is named Giselle. You wouldn’t know it from this picture, but Down Syndrome left her shy and non-verbal. That all changed when her mom, Kristina Bewley, began sewing costumes for her and taking the family to Disney. The magic she found there had an amazing impact on her life.

Kristina, who professionally photographs special needs children, has been able to capture each precious moment. Her Facebook page is a beautiful album of each costume and smile, with a little sparkle added in:

“She is non-verbal but you can see the way she lights up when we arrive. Each time we go, Giselle becomes more and more confident. She speaks what little words she has more, she isn’t as shy. It’s not just amazing photo ops for us, but watching her bloom is worth the trip.”

Giselle has taught Kristina how “to slow down and really enjoy the little things in life.” With most families rushing around the park to get to the next attraction, Giselle is taking time to smell the flowers, look at the ducks and truly enjoy life. The family uses their season pass to visit Disney every month, and each visit comes with a new costume and new opportunities for Giselle to blossom.

“I don’t want people to not see her Down syndrome, because it’s a part of who she is. But it’s not all that’s there, she is so much more.”

cincher-skirt-wings-tails

This cincher skirt is totally inspired by Supernatural’s handsome angel Castiel. His iconic tan jacket and blue tie are incorporated into the design and it even has wings! If this gets me any closer to actually hanging out with the Winchester boys, I’ll take two!

Etsy shop owner Corsairs Boutique has lots of nerdy cincher skirt designs but we’ve included more versions with wings and tails (like Toothless, My Little Pony, and Pikachu) after the break.

Fossils, anatomy, bacterium, and more, Etsy shop owner tcustom turns science into sculptures.

“I studied biology in school, but I turned out to be much better at sculpting than I was at chemistry… and so here I am!”

Each small sculpture is made from steel and pewter and opens to reveal the inner workings of wildlife, dinosaurs, the human anatomy and even microbes. Science geeks, these are awesome!
