I’ve heard rumors about a West Side Story remake, but this is getting out of hand!
Actually, it’s kind of awesome. Also, poor Bran.
When you’re a Stark, you’re a Stark all the way…
Sure, there was probably a dress code aboard the Death Star, but I’d like to think that during their off hours those stormtroopers liked to kick it old school. You know, throw on Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes latest record, chill out in a Imperial-issue hammock and throw on a sun hat and a pair of cool sunglasses.
Well, I guess there wouldn’t be much sun inside the Death Star, but if those troopers were going to wear some glasses, they’d probably wear these. The white theme matches the troopers’ armor, it comes with a nifty case and there’s even a Death Star on it! Too bad all those stormtroopers died in that epic fire ball, but if they’d worn these shades they would’ve kicked the bucket in style.
Okay, this is seriously cool. Adafruit’s Becky Stern has figured out how to create flexible cyberpunk spikes that light up and can be turned into a fashion accessory.
The spikes are made using NeoPixel strip diffused by NinjaFlex flexible 3D printing filament and she’s even included a tutorial on how to create them.

Keep warm and go incognito with this new Pandito balaclava from Blamo Toys. The cotton knit panda hat was designed by Spencer Hansen, and it provides almost full face coverage to mask your true identity. While the ski mask is perfect for hitting the slopes, I think you could get away with wearing it all the time. You could take it to the next level by only wearing black and white clothing with the mask. Go ahead, embrace your inner panda.

Ikea is known for having every conceivable storage device for your home. They have stuff for your kitchen, living room and office, and according to this ad running in Singapore, they can even organize all your cosplay.
It’s part of their Ikea Bedroom Stories ad campaign and it shows mild-mannered civil servant Frank whose bedroom is overrun by his cosplay hobby. Ikea comes in with their shelves and drawers and cubbies and puts the whole thing in order. It’s a home makeover for cosplayers!

As much as I love slip-on style shoes and boots, I can’t resist a sexy combat boot. These Marvel Comics shoes from Wet Seal are winners. They have two options: a boot with an all over comics cover print (pictured above) and a foldover boot with the images peeking out from the inside. The second design is more subtle, but I really dig having Marvel all over my feet and on display for everyone to see.
Check out the foldover boots after the break.
Though we know the character the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland, cosplayer Vavalika has put her own unique spin on the outfit. You may remember her amazing burlesque Twi’lek ensemble, and this costume is just as breathtaking. I can’t imagine how long it must have taken to carefully place all gems on the gloves and bodice. She looks gorgeous but also chilling – I blame the closed eyes and wicked long eyelashes.

Considering the fact that there’s a running joke in my house that includes us saying “The More You Know…Star!”, this t-shirt already got purchased at our place.
It really is the most perfect PSA ever.
