Redditor JustTSK’s circuit board-inspired entertainment system wall decoration is one way to handle those pesky cables. Though, should you decide to attempt something similar, we HIGHLY suggest not sticking the wires to the wall with super glue. Yes, that happened.

We’ve seen this Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker stained glass design on everything from decals to dresses, but it has finally fulfilled its destiny as an actual light that would be perfect to set the mood in a game room. [click to continue…]

In the interest of fairness to the fandoms, we’re adding this Star Trek Command Chair bean bag cover to the Death Star version we featured last week. Having both would make your den universally awesome / comfortable, but remember that these are only covers—you’ll need to provide the fill.

I absolutely love it when readers tell us about their DIY projects—especially stuff like this Firefly-themed bedroom from Poppy of Whimsical Frippery. We salute anyone that’s willing to devote a part of their home entirely to a fandom.

There’s a joke out there that says the Force is like duct tape; it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the galaxy together. I keep thinking there’s a version for this totally bonkers (but awesome) Sailor Moon masking tape set, but I can’t quite figure it out.

Still, the point is that this set, comprised of 10 different printed rolls of Sailor Moon masking tape and two tape dispensers in the shape of the Crystal Star and a Cosmic Heart, exists in the world. No bedazzled toolbox should be without it. Oh wait, it’s a $115 set of tape. Nevermind.

Unfortunately, for this Death Star Bean Bag Chair to be fully operational, you’ll have to fill it yourself. The $100 price tag only gets you the cover. It shouldn’t be surprising though—the Death Star is well known for being a money pit.

Jen Yates of Cake Wrecks and Epbot definitely knows how to throw a party. This year, she combined her love of DIY decorating, great food and cosplay for her Harry Potter-themed Christmas party.

Treats and decorations included treacle tarts, cauldron cakes, a HoneyDukes table, Fire Whiskey, floating candles, and even a Diagon Alley. Guests came in costume and were treated to a scavenger hunt among other activities. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]
