all men must die

Here’s a t-shirt write up that comes with it’s own trivia factoid. According to ThinkGeek’s website, HBO’s Game of Thrones employs a comic book artist and writer to do their storyboarding, and the three-eyed sword raven that we’ve seen featured so prominently in the Season 4 advertising was created by comic book artist William Simpson (Batman, Judge Dredd, Hellblazer).

I didn’t know that until I saw their All Men Must Die Ladies’ Long Sleeve Tee with that same awesome raven design.

If you’re working on anything Tron related for your next cosplay, then you’re going to love this fancy new thread made by Corning. It comes in a variety of colors, is flexible, and can be used in everything from cars to household decor to clothes. Think of the possibilities!

It’s called Fibrance and this fiber-optic thread just needs a light source like a laser pointer to let loose its glow. When it’s not doing its Tron thing, the thread is so thin that it’s basically invisible.

nails edit

I have a confession about geeky nail art. I love it, but I can’t do my nails to save my life. Which is why I’m a fan of the nail wraps by Espionage Cosmetics.

After the success of their first series, they’re heading back to Kickstarter to fund the new designs. I have to tell you, I think the rewards and the tiers kick some serious tail.

The new designs include art inspired by Sherlock, Little Vampires, authors Clive Barker and Seanan McGuire, Emoji, and they even have a set designed by Bobak Ferdowsi of NASA.

As for rewards, you can get a set of nail wraps for as low $10 but you also get cool things like exclusive nail wraps or a nail wrap humidor (that just sounds cool) for $50—and that reward includes 6 sets of wraps!

You can see some of the nail wraps and rewards after the break.

Shrek 1

Designers are at New York Fashion week showing of their spring/summer 2015 lines, and Jeremy Scott’s creations feature a lot of Shrek – as in the big green ogre from the DreamWorks Animation films. Scott has items for men and women in the collection including crop tops, bras, and sweaters. There’s even a t-shirt that says “Shrek Happens.” The bold Shrek face design the above model is wearing? It’s already sold out even though it was priced at $270. I wonder what Donkey would have to say about this.

See the collection on the runway in this YouTube video.

goldeneye belt

Make a fashion statement by embracing the memory of the best Nintendo 64 game ever: GoldenEye 007. Fashion designers If Industries remembers the good ‘ole days and came up with two belt buckles inspired by the game. One features a remote mine, and the one other is modeled on a proximity mine. Yes, they’re amazing, and no, they’re not available for sale – not yet, anyway.

See more pics as well as a video of the belts after the break.

Rodarte debuted its Fall/Winter line back in February and it featured high fashion clothing adorned with Star Wars images that everyone loved. Now they’ve done an official photo shoot out at Skywalker Ranch with some of the characters in attendance. Who knew Threepio could strike a pose?

We’ve got our first look at Allison Williams as Peter Pan in the upcoming NBC live musical thanks to The Today Show, and things are a little different. Gone are the tights and dress-like tunic in favor of a pair of shorts and little brown boots. It looks like Peter may never grow up, but they’ve definitely made sure his costume isn’t stuck in the past.

See a video of Williams learning to fly after the break.

sailor moon musical

Anime series Sailor Moon is transforming in order to make the transition to the stage. A new musical based on the series is debuting in Tokyo in September, and production photos from “Sailor Moon Petite Etrangere” are finally available – as is a video promo! The musical features Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus. The story is set in Crystal Tokyo and features the Black Moon Clan, Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Pluto, and Chibiusa. It looks… magical. Yeah, that’s the perfect word for it.

Check out the promo video after the break…

tesla dress

Fashion incorporates electronics into designs more and more these days, but Anouk Wipprecht and ArcAttack took that to the next level with their plate metal, chainmail dress that serves as a Faraday cage. Wipprecht stood on a stage between two giant Tesla coils and withstood zaps of raw electricity. The dress is made from 600 rings of chainmail, a spiky metal helmet, toy plasma balls (they add yet another impressive touch), and plate mail.

See the dress in electrifying action after the break.

Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly may be playing Hope Van Dyne in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man movie, but her hair sure makes her look like Wasp. Lilly posted a picture of the short ‘do on Instagram yesterday stating, “How’s my new do?” Another picture shows her with Paul Rudd so it seems very likely that she’s on set.

So, the question is will Lilly essentially be playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Wasp who goes by another name that isn’t Janet Van Dyne? If that’s the case, I don’t understand the reasoning for changing it up. Or, is Marvel just screwing with us and giving Lilly a bob cut to make us curious? Ahhh! I want answers.

See another pic of the hair and a comparison with Wasp after the break.
