Do you remember watching Disney animated movies when you’re a little kid and you watched birds and rats making a ball gown for Cinderella? Yeah, I know. I was pretty traumatized too. Think about all the nasty germs and viruses these pests will leave on the dress. If Cinderella ends up with some type of hantavirus, you know it’s one of those rat bastards that did it. Well, you won’t have that problem with mouse herpes with these outfits from Harrods (a UK luxury clothing and accessories designer). To celebrate the 2012 holiday season, Harrods and photographer, Jason Ell put together a collection of photographs dubbed “Once Upon a Dream” featuring various Disney Princesses in high fashion outfits from the industry’s best designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Versace, and Roberto Cavalli. These glamorous Princess photos will grace the holiday issue of Harrods Magazine.

My favorite comic artist of all time is J. Scott Campbell. I have worshiped the man ever since the day I bought my first issue of Gen 13. That’s probably why I fell off my seat when I saw Callie Cosplay‘s tribute to one of J. Scott Campbell’s best work, the “Black Cat cover” from The Amazing Spider-Man #607. I have to say that Callie did an purr-fect job in bringing J. Scott Campbell’s amazing art to reality. Yeah, I know. That was corny. Sorry.

Looks like The Lord of the Rings has now entered the world of high fashion. Odd-Style, a shop for “underground street style” apparel just released a collection of clothing inspired by the Nazgûl AKA Ringwraiths of The Lord of the Rings. Odd Style was able to capture the spooky nature of the Ringwraith’s cloak into a fashionable (and probably very comfortable) cloak and hoodie hybrid. I have to say that I would be down to wear such a cloak if I didn’t end up looking like a six foot Ringwraith that had one too many donuts. Now, I have to ask. Does this cloak come with a sword?

Bow and arrows are cool. It’s even cooler when it’s being wielded by Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft. Thanks to Filipino freelance model, Vea Novenario, the “Queen of the Forsaken” gets the cosplay tribute she deserves. All Vea needs to complete her Sylvanas cosplay is a few dozen minions to take down some dreadlords.

I think it’s every parents duty to make sure that their beautiful babies grow up to be Star Wars fan. Thanks to New Zealand based apparel company, Teapot Tees, you can dress your kids in the coolest threads from newborn to toddler. “A Newborn Hope”? “The Infant Strikes Back”? “Return of the Toddler”? What about “The Pooping Menace”? Sadly for anyone living in the United States, each tee will cost you $21 and a hefty $12 on shipping just to get it to your doorstep from New Zealand. Regardless of the price, I think these are worth ever credit. I’m looking forward to picking up a few for my son.

This is pretty amazing. Joe met Emily while working at a tattoo shop a few years ago and like most fairytales, Joe and Emily fell in love and have been together ever since. Now, Joe is ready to pop the big question to the love of his life and needed a proper engagement ring to present to Emily when he asks the big question. Instead of going to the local jewelry store, Joe threw out a plea on Custom Made for someone to help him create an one-of-a-kind engagement ring inspired by the one and only, R2-D2 from Star Wars!

Hello, my name is Joe. I am a Graphic Artist and Tattooer in the North Jersey metro area. I was recommended to this site by one of my closest friends and CustomMade builder Endless Design. This is my first project with CustomMade and I have to admit, I am really excited to get the ball rolling. I am looking for an enthusiastic professional to make my R2D2 themed engagement ring a reality… I am hoping to find a maker who can match my fanatical Star Wars enthusiasm. I believe this can and will be a truly unique piece for both us and your portfolio! Anxious, Joe P.

Lucky for Joe, Paul Bierker from Paul Michael Design answered the call and brought Joe’s vision for the perfect ring to reality and I have to admit, this is one of the coolest rings I have seen in a very long time. It’s charming, classy, and has Artoo written all over it. Just in case you were wondering how this story ends, Emily said yes. Of course she did. Didn’t you see that ring?! Congratulations to Joe and Emily. May the Force be with you forever.

Just in case you ever find yourself on Tatooine dealing with scum like Jabba the Hutt, make sure you pick up a Huttese translator ring before you agree to anything because who knows what the heck Boss Hutt is yapping at you. It’s not like you will have a Huttese translator droid on hand all the time. Mind as slip one of these suckers on before you agree on the terms on how many Ewok pelts he’s willing to buy. At the price of 14 credits, it will practically pay for itself (and it looks pretty bad ass as well).

Where to buy: Amazon
