Why wear diamonds when you can wear celestial fireworks?

This Celestial Fireworks bracelet features an image of Westerlund 2, a cluster in the constellation Carina, captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

ThinkGeek then took that already beautiful image and added 15 teeny white LED lights that sparkle. The bracelet’s lights are powered by a rechargeable battery and USB cable that are both included.

pg vests

We recently spotted our first Pokemon Go cosplay and now we’ve discovered our first Pokemon Go-themed Trainer vests by Volante Design. These vests are handmade in the US and have a zipper pocket on each side to keep basic items secure—like two portable battery chargers. They also have webbing on each side of the hip for other stuff you may want to clip on—like extra battery chargers.

Volante also says the first 40 orders will be numbered special editions, so if you want one, you may want to hurry. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Odds are you’ve been outside a lot more than usual lately. You feel compelled for some unknown reason.

If you’re going to be outside, it’s a good idea to bring and umbrella. A regular umbrella will do, but a Haunted Mansion-themed umbrella would be outstanding.
