Artist Michael Zajkov specializes in making dolls look creepy realistic. Just look at the life behind those eyes.

*Shudder*

The dolls are made with polymer clay, hand-painted glass eyes, and French mohair for their hair, plus thirteen moveable joints. Perfecting a single head takes a few weeks. He dresses the dolls in vintage 1900s clothing, using antique French lace to perfect the look.

Terry Garrett played The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for five years, hellbent on beating it. While this would prove to be an admirable goal for anyone, it is especially so for Garrett who is blind and plays the game by sound alone.

We first discussed his quest back in 2011, and now that it’s done, he wanted to thank “all those who have stuck with me through this series even after it seemed like I was giving up.”

Check out the final battle in the video below.

Just when we thought we were giving up snail mail for good, the US Postal Service announces these awesome stamps to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek on television.

These vintage-style stamps were designed by Antonio Alcala. There are four designs: a crewman in a transporter, the Starship Enterprise flying through the outline of a Starfleet insignia, a closeup of the Enterprise, and the Enterprise seen through the outline of a Vulcan salute.
