Hawkeye stained glass 1

Clint Barton’s often misunderstood and beat up in the current comic series by Matt Fraction and David Aja. You can’t help but like this version of Hawkeye, and Tumblr user panovanator is definitely a fan. She recreated an image from the comic featuring Barton drinking straight from the coffee pot in beautiful stained glass. If you’re near Berkeley, California, you’ll be able to see the piece in person at Fantastic Comics.

This incredible Legend of Zelda lamp was built by Baron von Brunk. He included Kokiri’s Emerald, Zora’s Sapphire, and Goron’s Ruby using Lego hinge bricks to attach the sides to each other. You’ll see the Triforce symbol on top is smooth in the center because he used the very tricky SNOT (Studs Not On Top) method. He created all of these images himself, using the game as reference to get them all right.

This bit of Final Fantasy III artwork comes courtesy of twitter user Rurue0111 who has recreated the game’s characters on a screen door. The affect was created using stained glass window paint applied with a toothpick to each square in the screen which represented a single pixel. The final image with all the characters is just beautiful and the concept is just brilliant.

If you’re feeling a little nostalgic for all those old school gaming titles, you should check out these Quest 8-bit Mats sets from JBox. Each set comes with four blocks (two base tiles and two “special” tiles) that are 30x30x4cm in size. The mats are made from foam, and each one features something different: fields, boulders, bricks and even treasure boxes. If you buy a few sets, you could probably recreate an 8-bit classic map right in your own living room. Or you can just dig up that old video game and play it… whatever tickles your fancy.

Batman bedroom mural

I am vengeance. I am the night. I’m in your bedroom. That’s what the version of Batman in Redditor madtodamax’s bedroom would say. Madtodamax painted the superhero on his wall using an image by artist Erik Von Lehmann as his guide. He projected the art onto a white wall, traced it with a pencil, and slowly filled it in with brushes and acrylic paint. Done and done. I wonder if having Batman in the room makes him feel safer when he’s sleeping…

You might not actually live in a castle, but you will feel like you do when you decorate your walls with these Game of Thrones house sigil wall plaques. You can choose from Stark, Lannister, or Targaryen (the Lannister version is backordered a few weeks). Each measures about 11″ wide x 13″ tall x 2″ deep and is the perfect way to show your house loyalty.

doctor who outlet sticker

Before today, I never saw any potential for the electric outlets in my house. They were just functional items to charge all my iDevices and keep the lights on. Thanks to the Electric Sticker Co, I now see them differently. The Etsy shop creates removable vinyl stickers that turn your outlets into adorable characters. In this case, you add a mop of floppy brown hair and a red bow tie to add the 11th Doctor to your home decor.

The pieces are reusable so you can move the Doctor from place to place. These stickers are absolutely brilliant.

Get a little light from the Dark Side with these Star Wars head-shaped lamps. There’s Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper and they’re both available in either small or large sizes. The Stormtrooper’s entire helmet lights up white, while Vader glows an eerie red from his eyes and his mouth grill.

lego flower pot 1

Does your green thumb need some help from geeky characters? Then let Jin Kai’s LEGO flower pot designs inspire you! The inventive creations feature scenes from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and The Simpsons and incorporate settings from each with fun minifigs. I love this idea; the possibilities are endless.

If you don’t feel up to the task of building them yourself, vote to make the Star Wars pot and Lord of the Rings pot actual products on LEGO Ideas.
