If you liked our earlier post that featured artwork of historically accurate Disney Princesses, you’re going to love this new Buzzfeed video that brings those Princesses to life.

The video features several of your favorite princesses and some interesting facts that explains why each one is dressed in her period garb.

Amusingly, there’s a debate going on in the YouTube comments about whether Aurora is English or French, but I can understand if you want to avoid the comments section.

If you’ve ever let your child dress themselves, you’ll know that kids aren’t really prone to choosing their clothes with “matching” in mind. However, the results can be fun and creative.

Summer Bellessa thought it would be interesting to let her 3-year-old son Rockwell pick out her outfits for a week, explaining that, “It was therapeutic for both of us to change roles, if even in this small way. He enjoyed having his opinions heard…”

I have to say, I like what he came up with –– mismatches and all.

It’s just in time to celebrate Spider-Man’s return to the MCU!

Spider-Man has quite the fashion sense–remember, he did actually make his own costume. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise when clothing companies look to Spidey for inspiration. Case in point: Living Dead Clothing has a new Spider-Man line that includes everything from leggings to crop tops.

Check out some items from the collection after the break…

It was rumored that the first run of Geoff Johns and John Romita, Jr.’s new take on Superman in the New 52 would feature the Last Son of Krypton wearing an updated costume. And it looks like the rumors were true! Well, the costume doesn’t look that much different from what we’ll see in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but I will say that I like his new belt, and I also like the higher neckline. What’s up with the fingerless gloves though? Is that some sort of ’80s fashion statement?

meteorite shoes 4

These meteorite shoes aren’t made out of actual meteorites, but 3D scans of meteorites. Made with soft leather inners and CNC milled aluminum foam, creators Studio Swine used a Surface Pro 3 to create these shoes for Microsoft. The reason? We’re not sure yet. Stay tuned.

Nico-Tech (NicoNico) is a site that’s popular with hobbyists, and one user named Frisk_P recently shared this sexy steampunk creation.

Frisk has a thing for fashion and steampunk, so he created a unique steampunk heart rate monitor that actually works! Basically, it’s a modern heart monitor that’s attached to a thigh garter. The monitor features a heart rate circuit board that reads blood flow via a photoelectric transistor (so yeah, it’s not steam-powered). Then Frisk added a few rivets and brass fixtures to give it a real Victorian vibe. You can check out a video of the monitor in action after the break.

Also, Frisk has some other unique fashion-y steampunk projects that he’s shared on Twitter in the past, and we posted some of those below as well.

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.

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.

sw purses

If you thought you had seen all the Star Wars purses you might want or need, I have three more that may just make it onto your holiday wish lists.

These three different faux leather Star Wars purses each have their own distinctive styles and design. There’s a Dia De Los Muertos style Stormtrooper, a retro tattoo style, and a black and white grid style that I’m definitely partial to.
