The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles definitely have an adorable factor to them. Maybe some little girls had weird crushes on them. Maybe by little girls I mean me. These hats featuring the pixelated heads of Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael definitely capture the cute.
Check out the rest of the gang after the break.

While these Predator and Batman themed motorcycle helmets may be a bit pricey, they’re amazing and, if I could afford them, I’d own one in a heartbeat.
Seriously frickin’ cool stuff here. Check out the batman version after the break along with additional pics:

You’ve probably been longing to show your more ferocious side to the world. If so and if you have a reason to wear a helmet (heck, even if you don’t), try out this outrageous wolf design! It’s furry and has creepy eyes and gross teeth. According to the manufacturer, it’s badass and will incite jealousy. It will also probably cause heads to turn.

Last week, Fox once again set the Browncoats of the world into a tizzy when it sent out cease and desist letters to Etsy sellers making Jayne hats after they licensed the product officially. ThinkGeek began selling the official Jayne hats but, in response to fans, chose to donate all proceeds to the Can’t Stop the Serenity charity. End of story? Not quite.
One very witty Firefly fan is crocheting a special Jane hat. This is not a Jayne hat, but a Jane hat and it has it’s own backstory involving a man in a brown coat and an evil fox. The story is awesome and you can and should read the entire thing over at CraftOtaku’s Etsy site. It just may be the best legend in the ‘Verse.
The Hound is one of the most deadly warriors in all of Westeros and now you can have a replica of his equally intimidating helm. This officially licensed collectible is limited to just 2500 pieces and comes on a beautiful wooden display stand decorated with the Clegane sigil and a certificate of authenticity. Preorder the Hound’s Helm now for delivery on June 16th.

If you checked in with us yesterday, you probably read about the uproar over the new Jayne’s Hat being sold at ThinkGeek. The problem isn’t the hat itself, but the fact that creating an officially licensed product allows Fox to send cease and desist letters to all those Etsy sellers who were knitting the hats. The Browncoats of the world did not approve and ThinkGeek took action.
Browncoats, we hear your concerns about the cease and desist on Etsy Jayne Hat sellers!
We weren’t involved in that process, but we have reached out to FOX and we’ve heard what you’ve had to say. As a result, we’ve decided to donate the profits from all Jayne Hat sales on our site to Can’t Stop the Serenity, a Browncoat charity dear to ThinkGeek’s heart that raises funds and awareness in support of Equality Now. We’ll continue making that donation until we run out of stock.
We hope the Hero of Canton himself would approve.
Score one for fans making themselves heard, and for a company listening and doing something to make things right.

Apparently, fans who have been making and selling their versions of the Jayne hat for roughly the last 10 years are being sent “cease and desist” notices from Fox.
It seems Ripple Junction now has an official license to make the Jayne hat (the one sold through ThinkGeek) and that means independent Browncoats who might be making and selling them are now infringing on the license for a simple patterned hat.
One of the things that really bugs me is the fact that those hats were made with love, with care and with small imperfections — and every one of them was unique.
Just like Jayne and just like Firefly.
And, while I understand that licenses have to be enforced, something about this just feels…
There’s a lot of questions flying about this and I’m guessing there’d gonna be more news as we go, so stay tuned.
Are you ready to embrace the superhero lifestyle? If so and you’re not quite ready to commit to the full on utility belt and underwear on the outside, consider this hat instead. It comes with a built in cape. You can save the day and look like you have a weird mullet all at the same time.

Stay warm and look terrifying all at the same time with this knitted Ood mask. It has all the dangling bits just like the alien from Doctor Who (eww!) and comes with an external brain. It’s probably much easier to wear instead of applying prosthetics. Just saying.

The Dire Wolves are an imposing lot, but this mask gives them a run for their money. It was custom made as a commissioned piece by Epic Leather. The mask includes vegetable tanned leather, oiled leather and coyote teeth which make it look extra fierce.
