The talented folks at Black Milk Clothing is at it again by taking Star Wars and adding a whole lot of sex appeal to it. Black Milk just released their newest Star Wars inspired dresses, leggings, and swimsuits. The classic R2-D2 dress and swimsuit got an upgrade and iconic characters such as Boba Fett and Darth Vader finally got some love from Black Milk. In addition to the merc and the Sith Lord, Black Milk also dazzled up a cool polyester/LYCRA skin tight dress with the almighty Death Star. Hopefully, the Death Star dress doesn’t have any weak point as this might lead to some awkward clothing malfunctions. Considering how cool Black Milk Clothing’s Star Wars line is, I have to say that I have mixed feelings about the Ewok dress. What is it about that Ewok dress that I want to shoot it with a blaster regardless if there is a cute girl wearing it. Oh well.

Earlier this year (2012), I was given amazing news that my wife was pregnant with our first child. After a couple months, we found out that we were going to have a little boy. Since then, our lives has all been about preparing our lives and home for the arrival of our son. One of the things that I really wanted to do is create a nursery for my son. I didn’t have a nursery when I was born so I wanted to make the effort to create an amazing nursery that my son would love. For a few weeks, I was going over ideas on what type of theme I wanted to design the nursery. Everything from Star Wars, Toy Story, and Adventure Time came up, but I couldn’t decide. That was until I came upon Eisner winning comic artist, Skottie Young’s amazing variant “Marvel Babies” covers for Marvel Now!. As soon as I saw Skottie Young’s newest work, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. An Avengers themed nursery.

As simple as that might sound, you would be surprised how difficult it is to find Marvel products suitable for a nursery. Majority of the Marvel Comics products you can find out in the market is really made for young children and adults and not meant for infants and toddlers. So, I decided that instead of buying random Marvel goods and throwing them into an empty room hoping they go together, I decided to create some simple Marvel themed decorations and paint a giant mural using Skottie Young’s amazing artwork. After two long months of paint spills, Sharpie fumes, paper cuts, and losing sleep, I finally finished the nursery. It was a blast putting it together and hopefully my son will enjoy it as much as I do. I hope Marvel will take notice and take steps to license their iconic characters to a company that can produce Marvel licensed infant and toddler appropriate products for the next generation of geeks.

Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads, but we will need diapers…

Am I allowed to be jealous of  an toddler? Sometimes, it’s amazing what people are willing to do for their children. Cory’s son, Cooper will be celebrating his first Halloween this year and this amazing geek mom (with the assistance of her husband, Jeremy) decided to put together an amazing Marty McFly costume and push car DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future II!

It all started with a red puffy vest Cooper already had and a side comment from my husband about Marty McFly in late September. I’ve always loved Back to the Future, and love cars since I was little and grew up going to car shows with my Dad; what better way to tote my 1yr old son around on Halloween than in a transformed $25 Step2 push car I bought off of the kidsale alias at work? So, I spent a few weekends and nights in October recreating the iconic DeLorean with cardboard, tape, paint, and a little help with some EL lighting from my husband, Jeremy. The perfect costume for Cooper’s first Halloween!

Isn’t Cory and Jeremy the coolest geek parents ever?! Can you imagine how amazing this DeLorean Time Machine push car will look at night with the wheels up in hover mode and the electro-luminescent glowing? I wish I could see this in person. Cooper just might be the coolest trick-or-treater in the world right now. Considering this is Cooper’s first Halloween, it’s going to be very tough for Cory and Jeremy to top this costume in the years to come. Now, I’m guessing is how hard it’s going to be for Cory to push Cooper and his DeLorean to get up to 88 mph…

How dare you sir! I ain’t afraid of no ghost!

Halloween is coming up very quickly and the ghouls and gals are busy getting their costumes ready for the big day. Most people buy some cheap pre-made crap that looks good on the package, but looks like junk in reality and some completely embrace the event and make their costumes from scratch. In this case, Grant Wilson decided to create a Ghostbusters costume with a steampunk twist that he dubbed “Spectral Eradicators: Circa 1895″. Like any fine “Spectral Eradicator” from the late 1800, you would need a proton pack. Grant created an amazing steampunk proton pack out of wood and copper and incorporated lights to the “ecto-fluid” in the tank and on the crystal at the end of the gun. Now, as cool as this looks, I have one question. Is a steampunk proton pack nuclear or steam powered?

If you’re a fan of cosplay, you probably came upon a little Italian cosplayer named Giorgia Vecchini AKA “Giorgiacosplay” (@GiorgiaCosplay) many times over the years. Giorgia is well known in the cosplay community for her vibrant and sexy costumes based on characters from hit comics, video games, and Japanese animation. Over the years, Giorgia has been praised for some awesome costumes such as Black Cat (Marvel), Mai Shiranui (Fatal Fury/King of Fighters), and Litchi Faye-Ling (BlazBlue). Well, so it’s no surprise to know that one of her newest cosplay is already turning heads. Giorgi’s cosplay is based on the “bishoujo” reimagining of Black Widow by famed Japanese illustrator, Shunya Yamashita. It’s refreshing to see this version of Black Widow considering almost every cosplayer has been hit the convention circuit with a cosplay based on the comic book or the movie version. Considering, Shunya Yamashita’s iconic style looks amazing on paper, Giorgia has successfully brought his creation to reality. I’m looking forward to what Giorgia has in store for us next!

You can follow Giorgia’s amazing work DeviantArt, Facebook, and giorgiacosplay.com. Hit the jump and check out her Black Widow costume photos (photographs by Daniele Faccioli)

Hey, check that out! Iron Man 3 isn’t even out yet and it’s a religion already! This awesome stained glass window featuring the Mark XLVII armor from Iron Man 3 is the latest and greatest work of R. Evan Daniels AKA Martian Glass Works.

This is possible the most amazing and complicated piece I’ve ever made. The final dimensions for this piece are 31″x47″ There are a total of 334 Pieces of Glass and the window is 9.5 square feet. I used 275 feet of copper foil and 5 rolls of solder to complete this. Construction time is over 100 hours. I redesigned this thing so many times that you can tack on another 8 hrs for design time. There are 11 different colors of glass. This is a foiled piece with a re-bar backing for support.

This work of art can be all yours for the bargain price of $4,500.00 (HOOLLLYYYY SHIT…)! Oh well, what can you do. If you knew how to make one, you would have. Until you can master the skill that Martian Glass Works looks to have, you probably going to have to shell out that dough to get one in your house. You can order yours at Martian Glass Works’ Etsy store.

I’m guessing that BioWare thinks that their fans are recession proof. BioWare teamed up with wrist watch designer and manufacturer, Meister Watches for a special time piece fashioned after the hit video game Mass Effect 3. This beautiful watched dubbed the “N7 Ambassador” is made with a black stainless steel bezel, 45mm carbon fiber face, and a band resistant to corrosion and staining which is made with a 316L NASA grade steel (whatever that means…). This limited edition beauty comes with all the bells and whistles including a water resistance (up to 100M), date display, and operates via Swiss movement (whatever that means as well…). All this N7 goodness can be yours for $475! Unfortunately, you can only get it through BioWare’s online store and they are only taking preorders. To book yours, you will need to take a leap of faith and drop $150 to BioWare hoping they don’t take over a year to get this watch in your hands. If you have the dough and the patience, go for it.

Hit the jump and check out the N7 Ambassador!
