I have Pokemon on the brain lately. I recently picked my Nintendo DS up and dusted it off, then apologized for neglecting it in favor of the evil iPad. My Pokemon: White Version cartridge was still in there and I have been playing obsessively since rediscovering it. I am fairly close to “catching ‘em all”.
With Pokemon on the brain, it was inevitable that I would turn to Etsy to see what awesome Poke-crafts people have come up with. When I happened upon this Pikachu Fleece Hoodie by Etsian ErosDIY I let out a little squeak of joy. (It was a very manly squeak, I assure you.) She makes her own patterns for custom Hoodies, and tailors them to the buyer. While the listing is for a Pikachu Hoodie, she can base them on just about any Pokemon your heart desires.
Check out the Pikachu Hoodie!

I am not the hippest kid at the LOLCat convention by any stretch, so it is fair to say there are “internet memes” I miss completely, and plenty I just do not understand. Nyan Cat is some odd mix of both. I stumbled on Nyan Cat a few days ago, only to discover that Nyan Cat was in the process of actually taking over the world, using a rainbow shooting out of it’s bum, and wearing what appears to be a pop tart.

The upside to Nyan Cat, I suppose, is that it is kind of cute. Craftasaurus Rex (but seriously, how cool is that name?) sent me this picture of her cat, in the Nyan Cat Costume she made for her. Apparently, this is only a prototype, I look forward to seeing the 2.0!

Skulls are a big deal in my house. We love them. So when I saw this Sugar Skull Clutch I fell in love. Mindy Humphrey makes these vinyl clutches, and other, super cool “Beer Gear” (jewelry, wallets and more, made from 6 pack containers). All of it is aweosme and all of it is available at her Etsy shop, MindysDesigns.
I love Doctor Who, I love classic Who, new Who, I love Number Ten, and I LOVE Eleven. But the character that has been making the last few seasons spectacular, in my humblest of opinions, is Dr. River Song. She is just hot in all the right ways and cool in all the right ways–and now that we know who she is, I can’t wait to see how things play out.
Rain submitted this awesome River Song Plushie from her MoonyCouture Etsy Shop. They can make you a plushie of ANY human character on the show (and I even spotted a Weeping Angel in there)! They are really cool, and I don’t know how anyone could stand to pick just one!
These great wrist warmers were designed by Ravelry user Christina Slattery. Based off of wrist warmer’s worn by the doctor’s companion, Rose, on Doctor Who. The pattern is provided by Slattery on her website, where you can also read about her knitting and spinning.
In honor of the release of Alice: Madness Returns, here is a beautiful replica of the necklace that Alice Liddell wears in the game. The Omega symbol is made of a hypoallergenic metal, and has been beautifully crafted by Etsian CaarigzkopfWorks. American McGee’s Alice was one of my favorite games, despite how difficult it was, and I am really enjoying playing through Madness Returns.
