Look, diamonds are expensive. When you need a substitute that isn’t cubic zirconia and the recipient of the gift likes gaming, these Minecraft diamond earrings are an acceptable substitute. You have to work to get them! It’s almost the same.
Please note that these still make a pretty gift even if your lady isn’t a gamer.

Finding the right purse can be challenging. It needs to be a certain size, match the right number of outfits, but above all – it needs to suit your personality. I think this Star Wars clutch is made for me and about every geeky lady I know. It’s an oversized clutch but still manageable at 8″ x 12″, it has a zipped pocket on the interior, and the print is perfect. This is going in the want a whole bunch category.

Really, when an image of a cosplayer requires a tag noting that it is not a screenshot, you know they’ve managed to do something amazing. French cosplayer Kevin is cosplaying as Isaac Clarke while his friend L a Charvin is donning her Ellie Langford costume. They both look so real in some of these pictures that you’d swear you were looking at an in-game shot from Dead Space. Kevin’s costume has even been recognized by the people who created the game over at EA who’ve had him do some promotional work. It’s just that good.

Finally—something to wear with these. That should pretty much complete the outfit, though you could toss in one of these cat capes. So you’ll kind of be like a Grumpy Cat superhero stripper.

These earrings are amazingly detailed replicas of the door knockers in the movie Labyrinth. They’re the work of deviantArtist buzhandmade and unfortunately are not for sale. I’ve always found the one with the ring in his mouth to be a bit confusing. If it bothers him to have it shoved in his mouth so he has to mumble, why doesn’t he just open his mouth and spit the ring on the ground?
I wouldn’t think paper pixels would hold up in the shower, but what do I know?

Ready for a dose of adorable?
Three-year-old Kieran wanted “to have a Spider-Man” for Christmas. His dad told this to a friend, and that friend dressed like Santa and brought a wrapped Spider-Man with him. Kieran unwraps his present and acts way cooler than I would in the same situation. Spidey shows him moves, hangs out, and sings with him. It’s the best. And one of my favorite parts is that Spidey wears red Chucks to complete his outfit.
Watch the video after the break.

Hello Kitty fashion has really changed over the years. The Sanrio character is still adorable, but now she’s also featured on chic designs. This “Mew Complete Me” skirt mixes the two and has just the right amount of playfulness.

This fleece hat probably won’t give you special healing abilities like Deadpool has nor will it alter your brain cells and block psychic attacks, but it will keep your head warm. It will also make you look more awesome. What more do you need?
