Stangely enough, they are also available in a variety of scents, should you decide to use them to enhance the atmosphere of a soothing bath or, better yet, a romantic dinner… costarring these.

Although this is just ornamental, this Batman bat house is still adorable with its upside-down bat signal. It was made by Spanish design studio Estres to show that having bats around is important. According to the Organization for Bat Preservation:

“Bats are not pests, they actually help control insect pests. An individual bat can eat thousands of mosquito-sized insects in one night. Bats are critical components to many ecosystems because they help control insect populations, pollinate flowers and fruit bats aid in seed dispersal.”

There are also plans available to build your own bat house.

glowing murals 1

I know the word amazing can be overused, but in this case, it applies one hundred percent. Artist Bogi Fabian doesn’t just paint murals, she creates magical worlds. She uses glow-in-the-dark and blacklight paint to create wall art that looks like it’s right out of Avatar. I mean, the best parts about that movie were the glowing forests and backgrounds.

Fabian’s murals represent space, forests, waterfalls, and caverns. In some cases the mural is completely invisible when the lights are on and can only be seen in the dark. Other murals look lovely in regular light but transform into enchanting lairs in the dark. Fabian explains:

I am trying to create dreamful atmospheres, paint walls and floors and manage to enlighten my art with and without a source of energy.

I’m completely blown away.

See more examples of Fabian’s incredible work, including a Tangled homage, after the break.

Grandmas like to knit and quilt and crochet, but they often make stuff no one under the age of 60 would actually use. Unless you’re redditor blandisanoob’s friend whose grandma made him this 8-bit Mario quilt for Christmas. Wonder if she’ll be our grandma too?

reddit image 1

When you have a lot of nerdy toys and art, it can be hard to know what to display and how to display it. A couple of Redditors had the same idea recently and matched their figures with posters on the wall. The above picture features Spider-Man, Hulk, and Iron Man. Apparently Redditor HotDog804 doesn’t own any Iron Man toys so he improvised. It works.

See a similar concept but with Nintendo ladies after the break.
