star wars skirts

These comfy, summery Star Wars maxi skirts feature Death Star and R2-D2 prints. They’re sheer, so a slip is recommended.

Otherwise…it will be a moon.

potter-topThe first time Harry, Ron, and Hermoine met, they were onboard the Hogwarts Express on their way to becoming some of the most famous wizards and witches ever.

It seems only fitting that Funko has decided to mark that event by releasing these Harry Potter Hogwarts Express vehicles with an engine for Harry and a train car for Ron and Hermoine.

Set them up on your display shelf all in a line and you can practically hear them talking away. Plus, they’re super cute.

The next time you need a leather jerkin for a cosplay or just to wear because it looks FREAKIN’ COOL, here’s one you should definitely check out.

This leather jerkin by Firebird Leather is handmade using suede leather. It has a pointed hood and a lace-up closure in the back which gives you the ability to size it for your body specifically. It also has a swallow tail design so it’s longer in the back.

You can customize the leather and the hardware, so there are a lot of options to choose from. But the thing I find most interesting is that there’s no sewing involved, it uses rivets along every seam.

I want it.

You may recall that Michael J. Fox was gifted a pair of Nike Mags with power laces for Back to the Future Day. As promised, Nike has begun the process of incorporating the technology into mass produced sneakers with the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0.

Functional simplicity reduces a typical athlete concern, distraction. “When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,” explains Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator, NIKE, Inc., and the project’s technical lead. “Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.”

Check it out in the video below.

No, these images of Final Fantasy XIII‘s Lightning by Kilory aren’t screenshots, but you would be forgiven for making the mistake. It doesn’t even look like the pictures were heavily doctored. Amazing.

Maybe it’s unfair to say that women get all the cool clothes. Sure, they get a greater variety of snazzy ensembles but, sadly, there seems to be a lot of pressure for women to look 1,000% marvelous all the time. Well, that’s society for you. Blow it all up and start over, that’s what I say.

And speaking of blasting civilization from the surface of the planet, check out this gorgeous Fallout Ladies Angl Hoodie. Sporting the recognizable blue and yellow of the Vault-Tec jumpsuit and emblazened with the designation of Vault 111 – the Vault your character originates from in Fallout 4 (sort of) this officially-licensed hoodie features a hood which doubles as a cowl neck, and a headphone feed in both pockets, so lefties and righties can have the wire running up through the hoodie and have immediate access to their Zune.

Chocolate-1440x900The Universal Orlando Blog has revealed plans to bring an unofficial, but definitely Willy Wonka-inspired restaurant to CityWalk sometime “later this year”.

The Toothsome Chocolate Factory will transport you into a 19th century-inspired Steampunk chocolate factory. You’ll indulge your appetite amidst towering smoke stacks, funky gadgetry, and staff wearing unique Steampunk fashion.

As cool as that sounds, the food looks like it will be even better.

That’s right, zombies finally have their own fragrance. Resident Evil‘s Umbrella Corp has expanded their business to include a T-Virus fragrance (4,200 yen – US $38) and deodorizing “first-aid” spray 1,300 yen – US $12) that will be sold in limited quantities at the Capcom Cafe in Saitama, Japan starting March 26 and April 2nd respectively.

So what do they smell like? No idea. But Rick’s group should look into this. After all, spraying on some perfume is a lot better than covering yourself in gore.

Check out the first-aid spray below.
