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.
Kotaku has some awesome photographs by Peter Lumby and Rob Dunlop of cosplayers from the book Cosplay Fever.
Geekologie showcases an anatomically-themed set of furniture by Vladi Rapaport, perfect for anyone who always wanted a skull chair or a brain ottoman (raises hand).
Tentacle Ring by OctopusMe for $160.00: Modeled from a real octopus tentacle, this ring reminds me of mythological sea creatures like the Kraken and Cthulhu (and also puts me in the mood for some sushi).
Wooden Skull Pin by Driftwood for $110.00: Carved out of driftwood, this skull pin looks like it came straight from the prow of a pirate ship.
I can’t have Halloween without Beetlejuice: ever since I was a kid, I’ve watched the movie every Halloween night. I’ve always loved Tim Burton’s cartoony gothic style, with graphic black and white stripes and strange creatures galore! Here is a collection of clothes and accessories that mimic the looks of Beetlejuice, from the miniature graveyard to the many cameras of Lydia (Winona Ryder):

Yesterday at the bookstore I picked up a copy of Models Inc., the Marvel comic about models trying to solve the murder of a set designer. The models are Marvel characters both famous (Mary Jane Watson of Spiderman) and lesser known (Chili Storm from Fantastic Four). The first issue also features Tim Gunn from Project Runway, and was distributed during New York Fashion Week this past September.

Where the Wild Things Are has been inspiring readers for generations, and the recent movie has spurred the creation of two great collections at Urban Outfitters and Opening Ceremony. The Urban Outfitters collection has more of a cute, childlike feel, with whimsical patters on the Allover Woods Crew T-Shirt, and scribbles on the Wild Grass Pillow. Where the Wild Things Are Dolls are adorable, and go well with the graphic canvas prints.
Opening Ceremony’s Where the Wild Things Are X collection is more refined and expensive, with lots of furry ensembles and quirky details. My favorites include the gorgeously fuzzy Carol Flare Coat and the cute typography on the seen/done/loved T-shirt. The Carol Headband is necessary for when you need to blend in with monsters, and the Ira Claw bracelet is perfect for when your wrist needs a hug.
The much anticipated Brütal Legend came out this week, created by the always awesome Double Fine Productions and starring Jack Black. As a big fan of Psychonauts, I’m really looking forward to this game. The visuals look amazing and the story is unique, so I say rock on! Here are some pieces that get me in the mood for metal:

I saved the weirdest and wildest for last! Alexander McQueen’s show is definitely weird and wild, with a panoply of sci-fi and fantasy imagery. Based on the legend of Plato’s Atlantis, McQueen’s collection imagines humans returning to the ocean and re-adapting to the ecosystem. It’s basically the premise behind Waterworld, but McQueen blows it out of the water with his awesomeness. See the evidence after the break:
The sword and sandal sub-genre is all the rage in the collection by Rodarte(Kate and Laura Mulleavy). From tribal tattoos to leather lacing, the show screams “ancient warrior woman” a la Xena and Red Sonja. With the help of dry ice mist and an unearthly green light, Rodarte transforms the runway into a fantasy world of witches, warriors, and apocalyptic wonder. There are glimpses of both Highlander and Mad Max in the mix as well:
