Supernatural ornament lost my shoe

The Winchester Brothers don’t have the best track record when it comes to Christmas, which may be why I love the idea of these Supernatural ornaments so much. They’re made by an artsy gal named Denise and she sells them in her Etsy shop.

She also showed me some very cool upcoming designs for next year, including an idea for a painted wine glass, so I’d say it’s a good idea to check back on her stuff from time to time.

I know it’s probably too late to get these Supernatural ornaments for this year’s decorating, but there’s no reason you can’t get yourself something for next year, right?

Head after the break to see more adorable designs.

Action Panda! [Video]

panda

Pandas seem all cute and slow, but not this guy. He’s dodging lasers like a boss, even rolling behind a table and flipping it to use for cover. No, we have no idea why anyone would shoot lasers at a panda, but it doesn’t really matter. All you need to know is that he eventually took out the shooters with nothing more than a shard of bamboo.

There are all kinds of car wraps out there, but this one is easily one of our favorites. It’s a simple black Hyundai Veloster that has been turned into Boba Fett by Rebekah Steig Knuth who came up with the design for her own car. She’s a graphic designer at FastSigns of Appleton and she digitally created the wrap which was then transferred to vinyl. I’m thinking she’s Boba Fett’s number one fan.

See more pictures and a video of the wrap being applied after the break.

diy harry potter tree cauldron 1

We’ve been sharing regular updates about Jen and John’s Harry Potter tree, because they just can’t stop making it more and more awesome. This is shaping up to be the ultimate tree for Potterheads, and I can’t wait until it’s completely finished and Jen shows off all the beautiful details. In the meantime though, she’s shared another tutorial. This one explains how to turn a plastic bucket into a witchy cauldron with cardboard, paper mache, and patience.

Jen and John used a tutorial from the Halloween Forum as inspiration, and I have to say that I can’t think of a better bottom for a Harry Potter-themed Christmas tree.

dc comic movie posters 1

DC Comics is launching a shiny new batch of variant covers in March, and they’re all about movie posters. The fun designs insert DC characters into posters from movies such as Free Willy (yep, you read that correctly), The Mask, Gone With the Wind, Beetlejuice, and Purple Rain. Heroes and villains on the covers include Aquaman, Batgirl, the Joker, and so many more. I can practically hear the money falling out of the wallets of collectors.

Doctor Who classic episodes

I’ve been meaning to catch up on classic episodes of Doctor Who, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day. However, thanks to YouTuber Omni Verse, I can watch over 700 episodes of classic Who at the same time – from the First Doctor to the Eighth Doctor. The itty bitty squares are pretty much impossible to distinguish from each other, but it’s better than nothing.

Here’s how the episodes break down:

William Hartnell (135), Patrick Troughton (119), Jon Pertwee (128), Tom Baker (178), Peter Davison (71), Colin Baker (31) and Sylvester McCoy (42) episodes, and to round out the era, Peter Cushing (2) and Paul McGann (1)

nerd wedding

I’ve always been a firm believer that the best weddings are the ones where the bride and groom don’t cater to tradition or the wishes of others. In this case, when Fallon and Ethan got married, they decided to make their wedding a celebration of all the geeky things they love.

They put together quite an event. From Harry Potter themed Quibbler programs and table favors, to Star Wars macarons, to a handmade custom bouquet made of book pages and comic book pages by Meredith at The Flower Girl Atlanta – they had all kinds of great, geeky touches.

Head after the break to see more pictures of this adorably geeky wedding.

admiral Ackbar Trap

Today in “perfect geek pun products”, I present these Ackbar animal traps by Cullen Sweet. While you can’t buy them, he’s taking a few to Star Wars Celebration, so if you see him there, maybe you can talk him into giving you one (after he gives me one, that is).

I also am now dying to see what the ad campaign would look like.

Ackbar Traps – Get them before it’s too late!

This beautiful piece features Calvin and Hobbes careening down a hill in their little red wagon. It was a commissioned piece that was hand sculpted and painted by Emily Coleman. It measures 8″ tall and took her 25 hours to complete, which seems surprisingly short given the detail on the finished figure.
