Pokemon Polar Fleece Hoodie

Pokemon Polar Fleece HoodieI 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!

READER SUBMISSION: Nyan Cat Costume

Kitty Meme CostumeI 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!

 

*Warning to viewer: nothing changes. It’s the same for the whole 3+ minutes.

READER SUBMISSION: River Song Plushie

Dr. River SongI 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!

Alice Omega Necklace

Alice Omega NecklaceIn 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.
