This perfume may be called “Dead Writers”, but you don’t have to worry about smelling like a corpse when you wear it.

The blend is meant to evoke the comforting smell of an old book. The feeling of paging through yellowed copies of Hemingway, Shakespeare, Fitzgerald, Poe, and more while having a nice hot cup of tea.

Dead Writers is a unisex blend that contains black tea, vetiver, clove, musk, vanilla, heliotrope, and tobacco.

We featured a beautiful set of Doctor Who wedding bands from etsy seller Cloud9Tungsten in the past, and now we’ve got even more great designs from the shop.

There are designs for fans of the Rebel Alliance and Imperials, Batman, and Legend of Zelda. Each features a wedding band for him and her as well as an engagement ring with tungsten carbide, cubic zirconia, and sterling silver.

The sets are priced at $150, which leaves you plenty of room to replace that fake stone with the real thing. It even includes free engraving.

star trek leia

There’s lots of playful (and not so playful) talk about the battle between Star Trek and Star Wars and which is better, but Malicous Cosplay has managed to bring the worlds together in one awesome cosplay.

It’s pretty much a cosplay Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup – two great fandoms that cosplay great together when Princess Leia is imagined as a Starfleet officer from classic Star Trek. Ensign Organa in her classic white dress and hairstyle, wields a phaser and a blaster because you can never have too much firepower.

Chewie reimagined as a Tribble is especially awesome.

Head after the break to see more.

Things have changed a lot since the ’70s, and the costumes worn by Electra Woman and Dyna Girl are no exception. The original Sid and Marty Krofft series had the pair in red and yellow spandex with capes, but Grace Helbig and Hanna Hart get much better outfits in the upcoming Legendary webseries. This new costumes are fantastic!
