Doctor Who is back on television, and we’re in the mood for time travel. Nothing could be more perfect for that than this TARDIS dress by Etsy seller Smarmy Clothes. The strapless dress is made from printed TARDIS fabric exclusive to the Etsy store – there’s even a reflection of Big Ben in the TARDIS window panes.
The flared skirt dress is made to order, and the seamstress is happy to add spaghetti or halter-style straps if you’d prefer a little more support. Current turnaround time is 4-5 weeks.

Hey mind giving me a hand? How about 12 hands? Thanks to these new Finger Hands, it’s entirely possible to upgrade your high fives into high 30s. These little vinyl finger hands are 2-3/4 inches tall, and they come in a set of five. Sure, they look a little creepy, but just imagine how much you could get accomplished in a day if you had 12 hands? The world could be yours!

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Well, peanut butter and chocolate that bicker and snark at each other. Regardless of the grumpiness, the duo is definitely the best of friends. Etsy seller Charming Clay Creation has designed a heart that’s half Sherlock’s coat and scarf and half Watson’s sweater and slacks to symbolize their friendship.
You can buy the piece as a single heart or in two halves so you can give one to your best friend.

Fashion incorporates electronics into designs more and more these days, but Anouk Wipprecht and ArcAttack took that to the next level with their plate metal, chainmail dress that serves as a Faraday cage. Wipprecht stood on a stage between two giant Tesla coils and withstood zaps of raw electricity. The dress is made from 600 rings of chainmail, a spiky metal helmet, toy plasma balls (they add yet another impressive touch), and plate mail.
See the dress in electrifying action after the break.
Just imagine looking out the window while you’re driving down the highway and seeing Batman. On his Batcycle. That’s what happened to Ryuuchan this weekend in Chiba Prefecture. He snapped these pictures of Batman speeding down the highway, apparently on his way to fight crime somewhere.

ThinkGeek just took their Bag of Holding concept to the next level with the new Backpack of Holding. The canvas bag is giant and full of places and pockets for you to hold all of your gear for classes, for a convention, or for an adventure. Seriously, Bilbo Baggins needed to have this bag with him on the way to the Lonely Mountain.
One of the coolest aspects is that the top flap can be unfolded to give the bag another 1.5 feet of space so you can carry rolled up posters or cosplay props. Here are all of the important specs:
Brown canvas backpack, designed and made by ThinkGeek!
Chrome d20 badge with “Bag of Holding” proudly printed on the flap
2 3/4″ wide shoulder straps with mesh back for wicking adjust from 19″ to 36″

Flap doubles as top of bag & can be unfolded to bring bag up to 2 ft. tall
Flap closes with 2 leather-reinforced, nylon quick-release buckles
Snaps on side of flap keep it in check
