Etsy seller Ye Olde Nerd Shoppe has 3-D printed a super cute Poke Ball box for only $20, and it got me thinking.

This would be perfect for an an engagement ring. Or maybe just a standard box for jewelry or knick knacks. It even has a push button release.

Check out more pics and a build video below.

cat hair tattoo

St. Petersburg-based hairdresser Aliya Askarova really loves her cat.

In fact, she has a brightly multi-colored cat hair tattoo undercut to pay tribute to her beloved feline. Hair tattoos have become a new trend and Askarova is clearly all over it. She’s got an interesting style overall. I dig it.

Check out more pics below (including the beautiful cat that inspired this creation).

Haha..what the hell? Somebody needs to do a Sailor Starkiller cosplay right this instant.

Oh Annicron, I don’t know what is going on here but I love it.

elhoffer scarlet top

As you may have noticed, Catherine Elhoffer has been getting into some Marvel-inspired designs lately. While not everything is 100% finished, it’s all pretty awesome.

My favorite is the Scarlet Witch-inspired top pictured above.

I also commissioned a Jedi-inspired hooded duster/cardigan (with pockets!) for me that’s so cozy I’ve been wearing it practically non-stop so I figured I’d put that in, too.

Check out all of the new designs below.

In case you’ve missed every other post on your Facebook timeline as of late, Cartoon Network recently launched a fun new character creation site called “Powerpuff Yourself” where fans can design their own character in the style of Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls revival (premiering today, April 4th). 

With a cool and diverse array of options, the character creator holds several Cartoon Network-specific Easter eggs (including Finn’s hat from Adventure Time).

Untitled-3

If you’ve ever wanted to dress like a character from a Final Fantasy game, Square Enix and Japanese designer Roen are working together to make that happen. But there’s a catch, and it involves your wallet.

Because ouch—this sh*t is expensive.

The Final Fantasy XV fashion site went up recently, and it’s full of items directly lifted from or inspired by the upcoming entry in the immensely popular RPG series. Y’know what else is up? Their prices, which stretch up into the sky like a towering skyscraper made of… well, of your money, basically.

glitter prosthetic

I’d like to introduce you to my new hero. 10-year-old Jordan Reeves invented a prosthetic that shoots glitter.

It even has the perfect name: Project Unicorn.

Plus Jordan is working with Autodesk designer Sam Hobbish, KIDmob, and the Superhero Cyborg workshop in San Francisco to make her invention even cooler.

I can’t wait to see the results. Go Jordan! ::glitter bomb::

Also cool? Jordan’s invention is just one of the prosthetics made at the workshop. Someone needs to hire all of these kids. I’m thinking they could make the world a much more amazing place.

Check out the video and additional pics below.

epona-horse-haircut-1

If you’re going to spend your days smashing pots and saving princesses, you’ll need a majestic horse. Few horses are as majestic as this one thanks to JMC Equestrian Clipping.

The cut is called the ‘Armor of Love’, and though it’s not based specifically on The Legend Of Zelda, this steed does looks ready to impress the Queen at the local Renaissance Faire, or take on an evil sorcerer alongside the hero.

Check out more pics below.

rocking chair hat

Sorry, Grandma, but you’re getting replaced. This invention by students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex of ECAL is called the Low-Tech Factor Rocking-Knit is able to knit a hat all on its own — all you have to do is rock back and forth. No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke: the Rocking-Knit was built for real, and it is magnificent.

See it in action below.
