download-e1461629065585From That’s Nerdalicious: One of the best things in the recent Lootcrate Firefly Crate was a little 4-pack of paper drink umbrellas based on Kaylee’s parasol. I didn’t want to use them because I only had four, but QMx has solved that problem.

They’ve released the new Kaylee Parasol drink umbrellas in packs of 30, so you can have a Firefly shindig and make sure everyone gets one.

How shiny is that?

Kids come up with the darnedest crossovers.

Jeremy Marbler constructed this awesome cosplay costume for his six-year old daughter when she wanted to celebrate her favorite fandoms at once. Combining My Little Pony with Doctor Who, this awesome Rainbow Dash Dalek is adorable in a terrifying way. He notes:

My six year old daughter wanted another Doctor Who themed costume after her recent K9 cosplay and she picked a Dalek.  As I was sketching the design, she was playing and yelled out “a My Little Pony Dalek!”

After shaking my head, I asked “A Rainbow Dash Dalek?”

“Yes!” she giggled…  And then looked at me seriously and said “It’s gotta have wings.”

“Wings…  So it’s twenty percent cooler?”

“Yes!!”

ectocoolerThe rumors were true. We’ve just received the official word from Coca-Cola that Hi-C Ecto Cooler is making a comeback to coincide with the upcoming release of the new Ghostbusters film.

This cult favorite beverage from the ’80s and ’90s (not to mention the favorite choice of my mother for school lunches) will be available nationwide in 6 oz juice boxes and 11.5 oz cans (with “thermal ink that turns an eerie shade of slime green when the product inside is cold”) starting on May 30th.

fake nail stockings

I don’t know whether this idea is genius or super genius, but leave it to Japan to come up with it.

Belle Maison has created stockings with pre-painted toenails in a variety of colors and designs. Don’t have time to get a pedicure? No problem!

Plus, they’re fitted to each toe, so you don’t have to worry about your “nails” moving around too much.

golden-girls-leggings-595x703

Before “Squad Goals” were represented by pop stars in videos about horrible exes, they were represented by the Golden Girls.

Now, when you settle in for a long-overdue Golden Girls marathon, you can do it in a style that the ladies would appreciate.

Words like “BOLD” and “NO NONSENSE” come to mind.

Out now from Huntees, these unofficial leggings feature depictions of the famous quartet based on the caricatures of artist Glen Hanson. The leggings are available for $55.

Mermaid-Bed_1-600x474When Ariel’s sisters were first introduced in The Little Mermaid, most of them sat upon cushions inside of giant shells as they readied themselves for the day.

Now, for the littlest merfolk in your life, that luxurious fantasy can come true. The Mermaid Bed is the brainchild of Portuguese furniture company Circu and features fiberglass construction with purple lighting to give it a magical underwater vibe.
