If you look at clutter in your house and wonder “why isn’t that a rabbit?” then Felissimo is about to make your day.

The company has released a line of funny bunny bags via their YOU+MORE! brand that can be filled with stuff and tied off to look like a nesting bunny. The line is inspired by Japanese furoshiki, which is a cloth used to transport goods, and is available in four different varieties, including Holland Lop Ear and a Netherland Dwarf. Check out more bags below. [click to continue…]

Cosplayer Helena Steele has put together a Borderlands Princess Peach cosplay that makes me wish there was an actual game based on the mashup—especially when I see the group shots. You can check those out below. [click to continue…]

Photographer Antti Karppinen needed a birthday present for his wife. So, like any creative person, he skipped the jewelry store and headed right to the armorer.

Indeed, the idea to transform his wife into Viking Shieldmaiden Lagertha was born out of their love for the History Channel show Vikings. Karppinen notes:

What to do when your wife has a birthday and you are out of ideas what to buy? Well .. go a head and buy or try to find a hand made Viking armour, arm braces, shield, hand embroidered shirt, authentic viking sword and other needed gear. And of course get a one eyed horse who can lay down on command.

Get together an awesome team of friends to help you to turn your wife into Lagertha by doing the hair and makeup and to assist with the photoshoot. Get some smoke machines and bombs and get the team into some awesome location near the lake and shoot some frames to match one of your wife’s favourite TV series of all time.

Then spend couple of days retouching those images and post them online for everyone to see. Birthday present .. DONE!

Enthusiastic tinkerer and professional lunatic Colin Furze is at it again. As part of a promotion for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Colin made an actual arm gauntlet device that boasts a knife, taser, and, a working retractable rocket launcher. As with most of his creations, it’s dangerous as hell. See it in action in the videos below. [click to continue…]


Huntington, West Virginia-based tattoo artist Matthew Hays of New Hope Tattoo Gallery created this unique Nightcrawler tattoo for a client named Terri. As you will see in the pictures and video below, Hays made it look as if Nightcrawler was teleporting across Terri’s stomach. A pretty clever design, I have to say. [click to continue…]

voice changing helmets

The Rogue One toy reveals just keep on coming. This time, Hasbro has unveiled two new voice changing helmets, beginning with the Star Wars Black Series Imperial Stormtrooper Electronic Voice Changer helmet. As part of the Black Series, this mask is all about detail and authenticity, so it’s cosplay ready. The helmet will retail for $79.99 and will be out this Fall.

There’s also a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Imperial Death Trooper voice changer mask. Retailing for $34.99 and available this Fall, it’s similar to the Darth Vader voice changer mask. It’s not quite as detailed as the Black series helmet, but it’s pretty sweet looking. I can’t wait to see little kids wearing them.

The Hasbro designers did a little video to show you how the Black Series trooper helmet works. Yes, I already want one. Watch the video and check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
