This super posable, adorable, Vulpix Pokemon plush was handmade by Malina Toys and I’m stunned at how lifelike it looks. Malina used clay, faux fur, a wire frame, acrylic paint, varnish, and a lot of artistic talent to make it happen.
You know those D20 string lights we featured over the weekend? These dragon ornaments from Etsy seller Aelia Petro would be a perfect match…if she had them in stock. Hopefully she will replenish them sometime soon because I’m fully committed to doing a fantasy-themed tree next year.

Etsy seller Bohemian Workbench is clearly a fan of Karl Pilkington, who you may know from his very quotable appearances on An Idiot Abroad and The Ricky Gervais Show. I wonder what he would have to say about a coffee table based on his big round head?
Crafted from birch with hand carved walnut accents, the 34″ wide table is emblazoned with a caricature of Pilkington’s head and comes equipped with a glass top. However, the $1,300 price tag makes it clear that this level of fandom doesn’t come cheap.
On that note, Coffee Table Karl’s expression sums things up nicely. In that way, it’s much like the man himself. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Internet artsperson The Vintage Realm has created a series of Poké Ball terrariums, each inspired by a different Pokémon. We’ve featured items like these before, but TVR’s versions are really top shelf. So, it’s not surprising that she can’t keep up with the demand in her Etsy store. You may have to be patient to catch one.

Fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire books are familiar with the game of Cyvasse, but there’s never been an official description of how the game looks. That hasn’t stopped people from imagining and creating their own versions, but this one by Bristol Design Forge may be the closest we’ve gotten to the game based the rules gleaned from the novels.
Each piece has been hand-drawn and laser engraved while the board and pieces have been hand-finished and waxed for protection. It features an 8×8 board complete with screen, 66 land tiles, 46 player pieces, and two different sets of rules for each style of gameplay.
It’s also beautiful.
I assume that you’ve already taken the sorting quiz on Pottermore, so you can take pride in your designated house with these crystal sorting hats from Etsy seller PottaMasterCrafter (the same guy behind the popular crystal Poke Balls).
Each crystal hat weighs over four pounds and features the crest and LED lights in the color of your chosen house. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
You’ve seen Poké Balls, but never like this. Jasper Hams of MasenkoProps has crafted this “Monster Ball” display from polyurethane and aluminium. The ball has a visible interior which looks sufficiently high-tech, and comes in a neat display case emblazoned with the logo of Silph Co., one of the technology giants of the Pokémon world.
This piece is, of course, non-functional – you’re not going to be able to catch parrots and the like using this thing. The hinge doesn’t move, and the Poké Ball is designed to stay mounted to the base and inside its container, so it’s for ornamental display only. But gosh, what a display.
You can purchase it directly from Jasper’s Etsy store for $133.55 USD, though as they’re made to order we expect there’ll be a bit of a wait thanks to the press attention. Check out more photos of this magnificent piece below. [click to continue…]
