il_570xN.707479946_g0xtIf there’s one thing I know as a woman with long hair, it’s that you can never have too many hair accessories.

Take, for example, these two owl and Mortal Kombat-themed hairpins by Etsy seller MankID. If you get invited to a Harry Potter party or, uh, attend a gaming convention you’re covered.

I know, I’m pulling at strings to justify my need for these things, but you have to admit, they’re very pretty.

It seems as though redecorating the office is part of the job when it comes to being a member of the creative team at Viking (a UK subsidiary of Office Depot).

A few months ago, they plastered their walls with Star Wars Post-It murals, and now they’ve built a giant cardboard castle (with a fully functioning drawbridge) in the middle of their office.

As they note on their blog, this project came as part of an initiative by their boss to beat the “January blues” by decorating their desks.

The castle was meticulously crafted using 500 pieces of waste cardboard and 80 hot glue gun sticks, and the team reportedly stayed all night building it.

Oh, and they didn’t tell their coworkers what they were doing. See their priceless reactions in the video below.

Nerf has unveiled two new new foam-firing weapons that will be added to their anti-zombie arsenal this fall. The first, a Zombie Strike Brainsaw Blaster, not only features eight darts fired from either side of the barrel, but also includes a foam chainsaw blade that actually rotates.

Here’s hoping those zombie heads are really, REALLY soft.

The second, a Doomlands Double-Dealer Blaster, is capable of shooting 12 darts which are loaded into magazines sticking out on either side. It also features a double barrel for simultaneous firing.
