As far as I know, Commander Shephard was never really down with the whole “casual winter wonderland” look. But if he (or she) had been, and if the N7 military code had been cool with commanding officers wearing scarves, then Shephard probably would’ve rocked this N7 scarf from Sanshee. It looks rather comfy. Not intimidating in a military sense, but definitely comfy.

scough 1

Any time you step outside, your body is assaulted with germs and pollution. This is especially true in a big city. You could inhale everything, wear a surgeon’s mask, or turn to a stylish scarf. The latter is now an option thanks to the group behind the Scough.

The Scough is made for “style-conscious germaphobes.” It uses an activated carbon filter to put a barrier between you and the infectious world. Scoughs come in many designs and colors and don’t look at all medical. While the makers mention wearing the Scough isn’t guaranteed to prevent illness, it certainly can’t hurt.

gundam snowboarder

I’m not sure if Twitter user @funyafunya0320 realizes that he’s ruined the Olympics by posting this picture of someone snowboarding while wearing a Mobile Suit Gundam RX-78-2 costume, but I know I’m going to be watching Sochi in hopes someone else cosplays during an event.

You get a perfect 10 from ALL the judges, dude. Rock on.

Can we start doing ski races with Jaegers and Kaiju? Please?

The Polar Vortex that recently swept through the United States has people thinking about keeping warm. College Humor came up with five winter clothing innovations that I can only hope will be kickstarted by some enterprising individual before next winter.

Body-sized boots, jackets with insulated tubes that hold hot liquids, and the ultimate hoodie pictured above are just a few of the creative designs. I want one of each!

See the rest of the clever/hilarious designs after the break.

Frivolite Handcrafts has designed this gorgeous scarf that tells the story of The Hobbit through a series of pictures. And to prove they really are fans of the book, they’ve even written a little fanfic origin story for the scarf.

When her Uncle Bilbo returned from his grand adventure, young Peony Took sat at his feet and listened to his stories. She did not laugh like the others at his wild imagination. She went home and knit his entire story into a scarf, starting from his green door at home straight on through to his legendary treasure chest, and gave it to him for Christmas. Bilbo treasured that scarf and wore it every winter until it was practically in tatters, though his neighbors laughed to see his silly, impossible tale hanging round his neck.

Those of you with the talent can download the pattern right now and get started knitting this scarf for your favorite Hobbit fan.

Sure, there may be snow on the ground right now, but summer will be here before you know it and you are going to want these beautiful swimsuits when it arrives. There are four different Star Wars styles including Chewbacca, Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper and Darth Maul (until Lucasfilm gets wind of them anyway. They don’t appear to be officially licensed). There’s even a great bikini for all you gamer girls that’s bright pink with a Nintendo game controller pattern.
