This crazy-cool pixellated hair is a new trend in coloring by X-Presion that was recently featured in a Revlon Professional collection. Hair color is applied to just small sections of the hair to give it a blocky, pixellated look. Sometimes it’s subtle with colors complementing the natural hair color, but some of it is wild with bright greens and reds that will have you rubbing your eyes.

These gorgeous pictures show us how Frozen characters would look in traditional Chinese garb called Cheongsam. It’s the work of Constable-frozen who created these computer-generated versions of Anna and Elsa that puts them in China instead of Norway. We’d love to see this movie.

If you’re looking for a different, and more literal, form of self-expression, then you’ll probably dig these unique Typo Buttons. The buttons were designed by a Korean design shop called AND, and the basic idea behind them is that you can spell out a message with some creative stitching (and a couple extra button holes). Unfortunately, they aren’t available yet, but I have a feeling that these will be pretty popular, so expect to see them popping up soon.

Of course, you could probably make these fairly easy at home by modifying standard buttons.

In the world of fashion designers, Anouk Wipprecht is anything but typical. One of the last creations we saw from her was a chainmail dress that was also a Faraday cage, and the robotic Spider Dress that we featured earlier this year has definitely evolved.

The Spider Dress is an extension of the wearer and uses sensors to detect anyone or anything that encroaches upon their personal space. If someone approaches the person wearing the dress, the animatronic limbs move into attack position. Or, as Wipprecht explains:

Approach the system under calmer circumstance and the dress just might beckon you to come closer with smooth, suggestive gestures.

The dress was 3D printed and runs on Intel Edison. It’s still in the testing phase, but Wipprecht will display the Spider Dress at CES in January.

Watch a video of the dress in action after the break.

May-Britt Moser is a co-founder of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and Centre for the Biology of Memory at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). She’s also a winner of the 2014 Nobel prize for Physiology and Medicine along with colleague John O’Keefe and husband Edward Moser for discovering grid cells that make up the brain’s positioning system.

London based designer Matthew Hubble, who designs some pretty gorgeous science-inspired clothing for women, made a dress for Moser to wear at the ceremony that features the neuron grid she helped discover in the design. The precision, detail, and thought that went into the design are both inspiring and remarkable in their dedication.

Hubble also designed a grid cell scarf to match the dress design.

It looks like Arya Stark is getting a makeover for the next season of Game of Thrones. Actress Maisie Williams is happy with the change telling EW:

“I love Arya’s new look. It’s very neutral, very plain, but clean! I have clean hair that actually moves.”

The change in costume is one that’s designed to help her character remain anonymous on the streets of Braavos. It’s the brainchild of costume designer Michele Clapton. She said her goal was to reflect both the change in location as well as the fact that Arya is not a boy and can dress like a young woman.

For comparison, see the costume she’s been wearing after the break.

The latest wondrous thing to come out of 3D printing is a pair of prosthetic legs for this adorable pup. Derby was born with deformed front legs that made it impossible for him to walk properly let alone run.

3D Systems designed Derby a custom pair of prosthetic front legs and they have completely changed his life—now he runs just like any other dog. It’s incredible to watch!

These incredible designs come from the mind of DeviantArtist No Flutter who has reimagined some of your favorite villains as pirates. We’ve previously featured her work and some of the amazing cosplay it’s inspired. This time it’s Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harely Quinn who’ve been transformed. They all look ready to take the bounty in these very sexy and elaborate pirate interpretations of their usual looks. Someone needs to get a group cosplay going for this one because it would be stunning!

A lot of attention is paid to the costumes that superheroes wear, but their everyday duds are often ignored. The creative team behind Batgirl decided to release images of their inspirations for her wardrobe. There are very real-world versions of the clothes she wears, and if you want to imitate her style, these pictures are a great place to start.
