link backpack

Link stands ready to protect your belongings on this Legend Of Zelda Stained Glass backpack. Seriously, I love the pose. It looks like he’s ready to take out anyone who comes near your stuff.

Take a closer look at the design after the break…

I think these two are going to make it (if they don’t kill each other in battle that is).

Recently, two aspiring Jedi Knights enlisted the aid of Mezame Shashin-ka, a photographer from Singapore, to create a Star Wars-themed engagement shoot complete with epic lightsaber light-rapier duels, spaceships and more. The end result is pretty fantastic.

bat dress

Is the title of this sweater dress a Backstreet Boys reference? I’m going to ignore that. Also, you should ignore the fact that I picked up on the reference.

All you need to know is that this Bat Dress is vengeance…and the night…and whatnot.

Death is pictured above, but you can check out her equally amazing Delirium after the break (slightly NSFW).

At first glance, these scarves appear to be decorated with beautiful, random patterns—but they’re actually made with unique mathematical algorithms. KnitYak founder Fabienne Serriere combined her love of math and knitting and is now seeking funding to buy an industrial knitting machine to create these gorgeous scarves.

When I started out modifying knitting machines it was because I wanted patterning that was beautifully non-repeating. I wanted something that looked great no matter how I draped it or wore it. To find algorithms that produce great knit patterns, I set out on a journey to find code that created images that look great “pixelly” as a knit. Knitting is made up of tiny “v”‘s, not square pixels, so that also played into the choice of algorithms. One of the algorithms I ended up loving was an elementary cellular automaton that generates great knit patterns which are non-repeating in some lengths, and yet not noise. …All of the scarves are provably unique; no one has the same scarf as you and I can prove it. KnitYak scarves ship with the specific code and generating key used to make the pattern on your scarf. There is something powerful about knowing the mathematics and code behind the pattern you are wearing.

nightwing sun

Fashionably Geek reader Michael R. sent us this picture of a Filipino sun tattoo with the Nightwing symbol worked in. A Wikipedia description of the sun’s symbolism reads:

The Philippine national flag has a rectangular design that consists of a white equilateral triangle, symbolizing liberty, equality, and fraternity; a horizontal blue stripe for peace, truth, and justice; and a horizontal red stripe for patriotism and valor. In the center of the white triangle is an eight-rayed golden sun symbolizing unity, freedom, people’s democracy, and sovereignty. Each ray represents a province with significant involvement in the 1896 Philippine Revolution against Spain, These provinces are Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Pampanga, Tarlac, Laguna, Batangas, and Nueva Ecija.[23][a] Three five-pointed stars, one for each of the triangle’s points, stand for the three major islands where the revolution started: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Regardless of the meaning, it’s certainly an awesome looking tattoo.

A little cosplay and cuteness in backpacks today.

First up is a Kingdom Hearts Sora Cosplay backpack which is a black canvas bag with faux leather details. I love the pockets. Then there’s the Adventure Time BMO backpack. BMO has a lenticular face design so he’ll have some major mood swings as you bop along.

BMO happy! BMO angry! BMO happy! BMO angry!

slapsee

If you grew up during the ’90s, then you probably remember slap bracelets. Well, the whole retro slap-style is back in the form of SlapSee sunglasses. They can slap-wrap around your wrist, or you can even attach them to the handlebars of your bike thanks to a hinge in the frames.
