This one-of-a-kind Lego Batman jacket was recently worn by DC President Diane Nelson to the Lego Batman Movie premiere. It was made using 10,000 bricks by Nathan Sawaya, the same Lego master that created a similar Ashoka Tano dress for Ashley Eckstein at SDCC last year. Granted, an actual fabric jacket was used as the base because a jacket made ENTIRELY out of Lego would be ridiculous (and hilarious) to wear. [click to continue…]
If you have nightmares after seeing this creepily lifelike (and weirdly squishy) LEGO-inspired “CreepyFig”, blame special effects artist Frank Ippolito and Tested‘s Norman Chan for bringing it to life. Not okay, guys. Really. I’m going to be sleeping with the lights on for a while. Watch the video below if you can handle it. [click to continue…]
As promised, the Her Universe fashion show took place last night at SDCC, and the star of the show was clearly the Ashoka Tano dress worn by Ashley Eckstein herself.
Uniqlo is an awesome brand that mixes engineering and fashion in beautiful ways — and while most of their lines focus on fresh seasonal basics, the collaborations that have come out of the brand have delighted fandoms across the board. From One Piece to Star Wars, Uniqlo has delivered awesome lines for years, and seeks to continue that with their all-new LEGO collection rolling out just in time for Spring.
Initially launching as a line for kids, Uniqlo’s collaboration with LEGO now includes a wonderful range of choices for adults (in men’s sizes only, sadly) to help the grown-up LEGO fan show off their fandom in loud or subtle ways.
Take a closer look at some of our favorites below.
Behold the geek equivalent of the “little black dress”. This 12,000 LEGO Technic brick LBD was created by LEGO builder Brian Augustine.
“My wife was a willing participant in showing it off.”, Augustine said. “I made her a handbag to match and added a few small touches. I then complemented her with my own LEGO built belt, bowtie and glasses.”
The dress is more like a bodice and skirt combo which helped make the dress fit better. Brian’s wife reports that the dress is wearable:
“But is it comfortable?” D’Agostine relays this review from his wife: “On the first day my wife answered the comfort question by saying, ‘It’s not UNcomfortable.’ By the second day though it seemed to be fitting better and she agreed that it was comfortable, though maybe not for frequent use.”
LEGO fashion just got an upgrade with these new fabric clothes by Korean accessory shop Leese Design. They’re made for LEGO minifigures and can be switched in and out in a snap.
You can get each outfit for $5 or get the entire set for $25—which is a pretty good deal.
There are plenty of stylish and professional options here already, and Leese plans to release more designs in the future. Take a closer look at some of the designs below.
Everyone knows that stepping on a Lego brick with bare feet is the worst kind of pain. However, it seems that Lego has finally acknowledged the problem with these anti-Lego slippers that feature extra protective padding.
The slippers were created as part of a collaboration between Lego and ad agency Brand Station for a holiday promotion. Unfortunately, only 1500 pairs will be produced, but they are being randomly given away to people that create a wish list on the Lego France website.
Not to worry though. Even if you don’t secure a pair, these Lego slippers would probably be a suitable replacement.
We’ve seen some impressive custom Lego Boba Fett cosplay in the past, but Imgur user iqwerty built a spot on version that’s scaled up for adults. He also documented the process.
Using a CAD program to maintain an accurate scaling, it took him only seven weekends to design, construct, and paint the entire costume.
Well done! Check out the entire build process in the gallery after the break…
