I came across this Jaws necklace on Imgur the other day. There wasn’t any information about it. It couldn’t be too terribly difficult to make. Start with come clay, paints and get some chains. And as a fan of “Bruce the Shark,” I may end up giving this a try.
But I decided to take a peek on Etsy to see if I could find it. While I couldn’t find it on Etsy, I did find a very cool alternative.
The design on this slice of birch tree is a combination of colored pencils and ink. It’s been sealed with a high-gloss epoxy and coated with a matte varnish. Despite being sealed, Kahahuna doesn’t recommend getting this piece excessively wet because it may cause the wood to swell and damage the design. All buttons and pendants are made one at a time and none are exactly the same. Necklace is fitted on a 14″ link chain or hemp cord. The birch bark may unravel over time, but this does not harm the design and adds to the character. It’s available on brass chain or shimmery wire-wrapped hemp, both with lobster clasps.
Kahahuna also sells this necklace for only $20.00.
I had the pleasure of setting up shop at TopCon this past weekend, a small convention in Topeka, Kansas. It being their hometown, of course the IBOTKS were there (Iron Brothers of Topeka, KS). They’re a family cosplay group that’s built some amazing Ironman themed cosplays, along with many other costumes too. I just happened to catch this video of Ironman and War Machine getting their groove on with a T-Rex (and it’s hard to see, but there’s this little kid in the middle of it all dancing his little heart out too). Needless to say, it was a fun weekend. If you want to see more pictures from TopCon, head on over to their photo gallery!

Boba Fett is not my favorite Star Wars character, but I think I need this life-size figure of him.
Coming in at a full six-and-a-half feet, it’s packed with detail: Boba Fett is decked out from head to toe in an authentic replica of his Mandalorian armor, featuring an articulated helmet with adjustable rangefinder, intricately detailed fabric costume and utility belt, a light-up chest panel, and braided Wookiee scalp accessories. Armed with a blaster at the ready, and another holstered at his hip, the resourceful mercenary is equipped with his signature jetpack and keeps various tools of the trade stashed in his pockets.
Pre-order this bad boy now, and you only have to pay $850 a MONTH, or you can pay it in full for a meager $8,495. At 6’6″ tall and 110 pounds, that seems like quite the deal. Sideshow Collectibles expects to ship Boba out March-May 2017.
My only question: does his helmet come off? I need to know, for...reasons.
Who doesn’t need an Origami Sorting Hat? Lucky for us all that Adelle Belnap from the blog Packed With Fun has created this adorable (and FREE!) printable Origami Sorting Hat game. Her post includes a link to download your own Sorting Hat along with plenty of pictures and instructions. Looks to me like this would be a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends (or the kids, or by yourself). Enjoy!

I’m an avid reader of Epbot, a blog about geekery, girliness and goofing off. Jen Yates, who also writes Cake Wrecks, is an avid fan of all things Disney. And while I am not and haven’t ever been to Disneyland or Disneyworld, have learned a thing or two about the House of Mouse from Jen. Such as, did you know there are hidden Mickey Mouse heads all over the parks? That’s what I thought of when I saw this cross stitch project.
Amigurl55 recently posted this project on Craftster. It took her about a month and a half to complete, and the finished size is about 13″x12″. I count 28 different Disney characters and a variety of icons associated with them.
