From Fashionably Geek: Archie McPhee makes anime cosplay easier and more authentic with these crazy anime eyes glasses.

These glasses are perfect for fans, or even otaku, of Japanese animation. Slipping these on allows you to mimic the large eyes of anime characters whether you’re doing cosplay at Otakon or just talking to a fellow fan of Akira via Skype. Buy a bunch and you and your friends can act out your own anime and post it on the internet.

Speaking of otaku (or the equivalent of “nerd” in Japanese), Archie McPhee has informed us that they put “Otaku Approved” on the packaging as a nod to Nerd Approved and our sites under Nerd Approved Media. We definitely do approve!

Babies. Animals. Kids. These are some of the cutest things in our world. When you mix costumes into the mix, the result is usually precious. Who can resist miniature capes or tiny pet hats? No one with feelings. If none of these images make you say “D’awww,” you should probably get your heart checked to make sure it’s not two sizes too small.

Love is in the air. You met the perfect person at the comic book store. You both reached for the latest issue of Hellboy at exactly the same time. Several passionate rants about the changes in the Star Wars movies, multiple discussions about the best version of Dungeons and Dragons, and one Doctor Who marathon later, you’ve decided it was meant to be. You’re taking the plunge, and you’ve decided to weave your love for all things nerdy into your wedding day. Chances are the latest issue of Brides magazine isn’t going to give you the right kind of inspiration or the best resources. Since ads for custom wedding lightsabers don’t tend to find their way into the pages of mainstream planning magazines, you have to look outside the white, lacy box. We’re here to help.
