HeyThatsSuper is a t-shirt shop on Etsy in Montgomery, AL, and they’ve got the t-shirt we are all going to need this summer: “Hello, I Am Groot.”
HeyThatsSuper’s t-shirts are 4.2 oz., 100% ring spun cotton, and printed with eco-friendly water-based ink, making them super soft, inside and out. Personally, I love the idea of this shirt, but I think it would be better in a lighter color, something a little more “Groot”-like.
Guardians of the Galaxy starts Friday, August 1.
These adorable Pokemon bows were personally drawn and designed by Riri. She then custom printed on fabric. After she has the fabric, she makes these cute bows, fantastic! I love that she created every step of the way, something she truly DIYed.
Want to see more of her creations? Of course you do! She has a tumblr you can check out! Who’s your favourite Pokemon?
In honor of the recent release of “How to Train Your Dragon 2″ in theatres, I thought it would be fun to share this Astrid cosplay, by Canadian cosplayer Ms_Ventress.
That skirt is pretty hard core with the strips of thick leather, plus skulls and spikes, which she created from Crayola Model Magic, then spray painted and distressed.
Check out the photos on her Facebook Page for tons of photos of other cosplay she has done, including Hawkgirl, Harley Quinn, the Huntress, Red Sonja, and Coraline.
Have you seen the second How to Train Your Dragon (HTTYD) movie yet? We saw it last weekend and loved it! Very consistent with the first movie, and even better visual effects and textures.

I don’t remember how I came across this gallery, but the work done by Bobby Causey is just amazing. This bust of Christopher Reeve as Superman (minus the suit, just yet) took my breath away. But then again, I think Christopher Reeve was my first celebrity crush as a little geek girl.
The detail in the skin complexion (how his skin isn’t all one even color is just amazing to me. His eyes look like he could just blink at any minute. Bobby posted this is a prototype for a 1/3 and 1/1 statue.
Be sure to check out Bobby’s website for more statues and busts. His Heath Ledger “Joker” is truly eerie!
Stay in touch with your away team with these fantastic Star Trek ComBadge Earrings. Tally Heilke provides a full tutorial on her blog. Not exactly a typical Father’s Day sort of craft, but suitable for me, since my dad was the one who initiated me into the world of Star Trek.
As a scrapbooker with a basement full of paper stash, I was intrigued to see the earrings are made out of cardstock! Plus it’s an excuse to break out some power tools! <insert Tim Allen-esque grunting>
Are you planning any Star Trek cosplay for upcoming cons? These would be the perfect accessory!

For this post, I’d like to suggest that the site be temporarily renamed, “Geek Arts,” because this girl went green with her art and prom, and has way surpassed any of us!
18-year-old Julia Reidhead, from Mesa, Arizona, knew that she wanted something special to wear to prom. She decided she would design her own dress. She and her mother purchased a used wedding dress for $40, and then Julia painted her own version of one of her favorite pieces of art — Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” — over the fabric, creating a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind dress.
She sketched a design on the dress in pencil, then tested her acrylic paints on an extra swatch of fabric to make sure they would work. The overall process of painting the dress took more than 40 hours spread out over one week. She gradually worked her way up the dress, ending with the starry sky. Reidhead was still drying the gown with a blow-dryer five minutes before her date came to pick her up for the dance.
