Disneyland and Disney World are magical any time of year, but I’m especially a fan of Disneyland from September to December because that’s when Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas comes to New Orleans Square and takes over the Haunted Mansion.

What also appears right around that time is new NBX merchandise, and this year is no exception. New hoodies and tees for men, women, and children are expected, along with new trading pins. There are also new gloves, hats, and beanies. In other words, there’s a lot of awesome coming. Check out more designs below. [click to continue…]

Obi-Wan always said the Force surrounds us. If by “Force” he meant “The Invisible Hand” he was absolutely right—the merchandise is everywhere. That having been said, Forever 21 is the newest retailer to join the Star Wars universe.

The new Forever 21 Star Wars collection includes clothing for men, women and kids featuring sweats, tees, bodysuits, and more.

They’re also really affordable and cute. Check out more examples from the collection below.

Fourteen-year-old Hunter Powers probably has the coolest Halloween costume in the entire state of Oregon. Hunter, who has spina bifida, isn’t able to walk. His mother told Fox 12 that “most people don’t even see him.”

However, a non-profit organization named Magic Wheelchair swooped in to help. As we noted in a previous post, Ryan and Lana Weimer began Magic Wheelchair after they created one-of-a-kind Halloween costumes for their own children who use wheelchairs. Now volunteers with the organization build custom wheelchair costumes for kids all over the country.

In this case, an art teacher and Magic Wheelchair volunteer named Jeff Watamura (along with his high school art class) made Hunter’s costume: a personalized S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet. He made the 12 hour drive from Visalia, California to deliver it personally.

jewelbots-coding-bracelet

These fashionable Jewelbots bracelets actually teach pre-teen girls the basics of coding. And it looks super fun. Once again I’m so happy more companies are helping to introduce the world of STEM to young girls. I only wish this kind of thing was around when I was younger.

The bracelet itself is a fairly simple design with one button and four different colored LED lights. The super fun part comes in when it’s paired with the iPhone or Android app. Girls can program a wide variety of functions that include adding their friends to color-coded groups so the bracelet will light up when nearby. “Secret” messages can be also sent to friends through vibration sequences.

While I love talking about fun and geeky dresses for adults, little girls love dressing up with their favorite characters too.

man-vs-pink-instagram-geeky-daughter

Meet the hippest 3-year old geek with the best fashion sense ever! She’s the daughter of stay-at-home dad and blogger Simon Ragoonanan. He loves her unique style so much that he decided to let her start dressing herself, and the results went viral.

Simon writes on his blog Man vs. Pink that girls can be more than just princesses and “that pink doesn’t have to be the only colour they like.” He lets his amazing little girl have her own voice and allow her personality to shine…with  capes and all.

“Since she’s turned 3, I’ve decided to stop doing that, as I’m trying to raise an independent, empowered girl. I’m kind of sending mixed messages if I decide what she wears every day! So every morning, she chooses herself.”

princess-awesome-clothing

Not all girls like pink and hearts and rainbows, including the daughters of Rebecca Melsky and Eva St. Clair. In a bold attempt to break the stereotype of “girly” prints, Rebecca and Eva launched their own clothing line called Princess Awesome. Some of the more popular prints include images of pirates, robots, and the math symbol PI.

The duo’s Kickstarter project quickly blew past their goal, becoming the highest-funded children’s clothing line campaign after only three days. They explain on their Kickstarter page:

“We believe that if a girl likes purple and also likes trucks, she should be able to wear a purple truck dress. And if a girl likes princesses and also aliens, then an alien princess skirt is for her.”

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a clone of yourself? Well, with the DOTA 2 Meepo Cowl you can finally clone up to four versions of yourself! Eh… just kidding. This Cowl doesn’t have any special cloning powers. Still, it’s made from a comfy jersey knit/cotton blend, and the ears are made from something called Velboa, with is a very soft acrylic fabric. So, no on the cloning and teleporting, but yes in regards to the cowl being extremely comfortable. At least that’s something, right?

Check out another picture of the cowl after the break…

Titan Cosplay 1

Stephanie at All About Ami recently went to Anime Expo and dressed up her child Myla as the scarf-wearing soldier Mikasa from Attack on Titan. If you’re not familiar, the show is an anime taking place in the future where humanity has been rendered nearly extinct due to giant human-consuming monsters simply called Titans. The heroes attack the Titans with swords and are equipped with 3-D maneuvering wire gear attached to their legs. Mikasa is an amazing character from the show and Mila’s proportions compared to any adult Titan cosplayers at the Expo just made her that more accurate. It’s surprising that an adorable cosplay like this can come from such a violent and often terrifying series.

More photos follow the break.
