These cartoon versions of the crew of Serenity are even cuter than their real-world counterparts. If we can’t have more Firefly with the original cast, maybe we can get an animated version instead. Please?

At least we have this t-shirt.

john and sherlock friendship necklace 1

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.

Check out another picture of the creative necklace after the break.

tesla dress

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.

bat1

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.

See another picture, plus one from the film for comparison, after the break.

1e69_backpack_of_holding_inuse

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″
Top handle for easy grab-and-go
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
Edges of flap/bag reinforced with bias tape
External Dimensions: 18″ tall x 16″ wide x 7″ deep (24″ tall with top of bag unfolded)
Main compartment: 17 1/2″ tall x 11″ wide x 5″ deep
Padded tablet sleeve with hook and loop closure (inside main compartment): 12″ tall x wide x 10 1/2″ wide x 1″ deep (if you choose not to use the closure, this compartment could hold an object up to 17″ tall in standard backpack formation or 23″ tall with top of bag unfolded)
Four pockets (inside main compartment) to hold pens, phone, lipbalm, etc. (no closure, for use only when top of bag is unfolded)
1 zippered front compartment: 9″ wide x 6 1/2″ tall x 1 1/2″ deep
2 zippered side pockets: 4 1/2″ wide x 7 3/4″ high x 1 1/2″ deep

NBX hoodie 1

I don’t know who’s making design decisions at Hot Topic these days, but I hope they never leave because this new The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack & Sally reversible girls hoodie is perfection.

Feeling more like Jack one day and Sally the other? No problem. Just reverse the hoodie and you’re all set. I love this thing. Seriously.

It comes in sizes XS – 3XL and is in stock now.

Head after the break to see more pictures (including the Sally side).

erza_cosplay 1

Fairy Tail’s Erza Scarlet is a mage with some kickass armor. Koralene Cosplay cast some spells of her own when she made this striking Erza costume because she made craft foam and posterboard look metallic. Even with the lightweight materials, it must have been a challenge to move in the bulky costume.

daryl poncho scarf

So, you’ve survived the initial onslaught of the zombie invasion. Congratulations! Now, the next step is to build up a tough image–you know, establish a the-apocalypse-is-actually-fun-for-me look. You can go with tire armor or a multi-colored mohawk, but personally, I’d go with this Daryl Infinity Scarf.

Then again, the design might look more badass as a poncho. It works either way.

This scarf is made from 100 percent polyester, and one size fits all.
