The stereotype is that geeks eat unhealthy food, and unfortunately there’s more than a bit of truth to it. So why not celebrate it with the Cheeto Existential Documentary Fine Art Screen Print by SynapseArtworks ($125.00). Every Cheeto in a 13.5 oz. bag was traced and rated according to cheesiness, so you can compare cheesiness levels with the next bag you eat. The Mac and Cheese Unscented Candle by kokocandles ($15.00) looks amazingly delicious and realistic (though I’m not sure it’s a good thing that real mac and cheese is a dead ringer for a wax candle).
Art and geek collide with these two items from Etsy inspired by Apple and RenéMagritte’s famous painting, The Son of Man. The René Magritte Apple Macintosh T-shirt by Baostudio ($23.00) hides the face of man behind the old Apple logo with colorful results, while the Vinyl Decal Sticker for the Macbook Pro by artwallproject ($13.00) cleverly uses the Apple logo to reenact the painting.
El Día de los Muertos has come and gone, but we can still honor the dead with gorgeous calavera finds:
The Yaxche Necklace by persimmonjewelry ($58.00) refers to the Mayan Tree of Heaven, “under which good souls rejoice.”
The Calavera Burn Book by Scott Campbell ($150.00) has been intricately laser cut, turning an old book into a ghostly work of art.
Halloween is the time of year for monsters, and there are plenty to choose from at Etsy. There are plush monsters, felt monsters, and fuzzy monsters galore to cuddle up with on Halloween night and beyond. However, going through them all on Etsy is a monstrous headache, so I’ve compiled a list of the Top Ten Best Etsy shops with lovable monsters and creatures from distant lands!
See the full list after the break:
Ninja Shuriken Magnet by Lee Weilang at MollaSpace for $18.00: Made for posting super secret notes on the refrigerator, you can use it as evidence that you fended off a ninja attack with frozen meatloaf.
Ninja Bunny-Neen Jah the Buhn Nee by BlissForest at etsy for $16.50: What could be better to protect your house than a ninja bunny? Nothing, that’s what!
Oh Yahtzee, you smarmy herculean mongoose…I love to watch Zero Punctuation, the series of animated video game reviews by Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw, the gamer who keeps it as real as a Trilby hat. They’re funny and brutally cynical, but shed honest insight into the pros and cons of current console games. Be sure to catch it every Wednesday on The Escapist.
A couple of weeks ago, I ordered my own personal imp, the characters on Zero Punctuation that serve as stand-ins for everything from game villains and minions to fanfiction writing fangirls. It arrived quicker than I expected, since it was shipped by Canada PostGround to the US. I added a red bow and made it a girl imp!
Get the imp from SplitReason.com for $9.95, though shipping to the United States is pricey.
