This Dragon Ball / Legend of Zelda hybrid ring is definitely one of a kind. It was designed by Takayas Custom Jewelry for a client that couldn’t decide between the two themes for an anniversary gift.

She decided she wanted ring to have the Dragon Ball elements on one half of the band, the Zelda elements on the other half, and the two designs to merge in the middle as a hybrid nod to each series.

When in doubt, mashup all the things.

Check out more pictures of the ring (including the finished product) after the break…

First off, this is one hell of a combo. Isn’t that Dragon Draper necklace awesome? You can get them in several different colors from Art by Aelia.

Second, that Choco/Mog tattoo! It’s a fantastic addition to the body art on our friend EmmaLee (aka Feyith) who also sent us pics of her amazing Firefly tattoo earlier this year.

monopoly engagement

Ordinarily, Monopoly tears people apart. This might be the first time the game ever brought people closer together.

Justin Lebon hired wood-worker Mark Becker to create this gorgeous custom Monopoly board as a unique way to propose to his girlfriend Michal Ott. He writes:

The reason I chose a homemade monopoly board is because: A) it’s michals favorite game B) we play on a “Glenmoor monopoly” board I made in high school, and it’s missing pieces :/ it’s fun, but when you pull a chance card that says “go to reading railroad” and nothing on the board matches…. It makes it kinda difficult. Anyways, monopoly board idea is born. All of the spaces have a special meaning to us.

I handed her a pair of loaded dice. They would only allow her to roll a 7. The number she needed to land on Chance. That’s where I put the “will you marry me card” Michal takes the dice. Rolls a 7. Says” Ooh a Seven! 1,2,3,4,5,6,7! Ooh, Chance!…”

She reads the chance card out loud “…Will you marry me?” and said “is this REAL!?” I said ” what else does the card say” … Michal replies “If yes advance to luxury tax” After michal quickly moved her piece to luxury tax I got down on one knee and poured my heart out. I said everything I wanted to say and took my time. It was great. Then I reach down into my pocket and pulled out.. A long Wire key. Michal had gone through a lot at this point and was still trying to put it all together. I asked her if she would marry me. She said yes. I asked if she wanted to see something really cool. She nodded her head up and down. I took the wire key and popped open a secret door underneath the luxury tax.

Check out all the details of the board and the proposal story in the gallery after the break…

Dragons, elf ears, silver, and skill all come together in these gorgeous ear cuffs by Etsy seller ManikID. The beauty of the designs coupled with the delicate look of the silver feel like they’ve been pulled from the pages of a fantasy novel or movie and it’s hard to look at them and not want them all.

fairy tale fashions

I recently read Uprooted by Naomi Novik, which is a fantastic read for anyone that loves fairy tales. I also read Alice by Christina Henry which isn’t technically based on a fairy tale, but it will take adult Alice In Wonderland fans down a rabbit hole that is very deep and very, very dark.

At any rate, these books got me thinking about some of the amazing fairy tale and fantasy-inspired fashions we’ve featured over the years. Head after the break for a collection of some of the best examples.

A lightsaber’s color and design come from the type of crystal used and the Jedi who forges it. In this case, Takayas Custom Jewelry are the Jedis in question and they’ve melded non-tarnish sterling silver and Swarovski Zirconia to create these stunning lightsaber rings.

If the Joker ever proposed marriage to Harley Quinn, these engagement rings made by Razos Ring Shop would be a damn fine choice.

But how would he pop the question? I’m picturing the Joker getting down on one knee while perched atop a pile of corpses in the moonlight. Maybe something involving an actual ball and chain.

Take a closer look after the break.
