Everyone is talking about Windows 10, but this backpack is a tribute to Windows of yesteryear. It features an allover print with images from good old Windows 95. It has zippered closures and adjustable straps and is available for preorder with delivery expected in 2-5 weeks.
This handmade leather purse features Jabba’s pet, the annoying little Salacious Crumb. From the product page:
This purse is hand-painted by me (that’s five years at art school working for ya) with professional-quality acrylic paint, and sealed with UV-protective gloss finish coating. Acrylic paint is flexible, water-proof and very durable, but it’s not invulnerable to scratches.
It’s made of leather and has a large center pocket with a zippered side section, two zippered front pockets, and a magnetic pocket on the back.

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:

Go back to school like a bounty hunter with this Boba Fett striped backpack. The minimalist design captures the basics of Fett’s costume, and it’s much lighter than wearing full armor. If you’re not headed back to school, remember that backpacks can come in handy for conventions.

This Mario themed backpack is like two backpacks in one. One side features World 8 Level 4 and the other features Mario climbing the flagpole in World 1-1. The backpack includes one large interior pocket and a smaller zippered pocked on the outside for carrying little stuff like keys or your phone.

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the Game Boy, and this TravelBoy backpack is a fantastic homage. It has tons of detail (including raised buttons) and it’s made from PVC and nylon, so the materials are easy to spot clean with a washcloth. There’s also plenty of room inside the backpack to hold everything you need – including an actual portable gaming system.

While Deadpool isn’t the kind of character you should look up to, he does have an awesome costume. His red and black face mask seems made for designs like the one featured on this backpack from Hot Topic. Take it to school or use it to hold your stuff while you’re cosplaying Deadpool at a convention. It would blend right into your outfit!

She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts… actually, this Millennium Falcon backpack can’t be called a hunk of junk. It’s a cool new design from Bioworld featuring the iconic spaceship, and it’s even got the Rebel Alliance symbol on the back.
And it’s not their only new Star Wars backpack! They’ve also got a classy Boba Fett backpack and a Chewbacca messenger style backpack. How many bags is too many for me to own?

Here’s your backward bit of news for the day. When 9-year-old Grayson Bruce told his Mom, Noreen, that he was being bullied for his My Little Pony backpack, she took appropriate action and told the school. The school then took completely inappropriate action and, rather than confronting the bullies, told Grayson that he could no longer bring his backpack to school.
Noreen Bruce understandably took exception to the school’s decision, feeling the show promotes friendship and positive values. They’ve now started a petition and created a facebook page to support Grayson and are using #SupportForGrayson to spread the word about what’s happening at their school. Even conservative radio host Glenn Beck got involved telling Grayson to stick to his guns and not let the kids or the school get him down. So what does the school have to say about the matter?
“An initial step was taken to immediately address a situation that had created a disruption in the classroom. Buncombe County Schools takes bullying very seriously, and we will continue to take steps to resolve this issue.”
Let’s see if they actually do something reasonable, you know, like call out the bullies and let Grayson bring whatever darn backpack he likes to school.
