Giant googly eyes aren't just great for making household objects look alive, they are also great for making cosplay look even more fantastic! These delightful pictures were taken by Jenny and Lars Sparks, who modified the eyes and brought them to the convention for this specific purpose.
If your dog is your little baby, what better way to announce to the world that you are having a new human baby than sending out this adorable little card? Photographers Chris & Adrienne Scott used this photo as their public pregancy announcement.
Technically, these cupcakes by One Charming Party are based on the goofy comedy So I Married An Axe Murderer, but they would be perfect for any Halloween party as well -especially if you mix in a few tiny plastic butcher knives in with the axes.
Did you finish all of Orange is the New Black already? Can't wait for the next season, even though it's not coming until 2014? Then look to Netflix to whet your appetite for prison goodness with these delightfully prison-esque recipes based on everyone's favorite prison show.
I think it would help if John tried these out for us and reviewed the recipes.
Say hello to the Cowboy Cone, a waffle cone filled with pulled pork, cole slaw, beans and barbecue sauce. At only 845 calories, it's practically diet food compared to some of the other foods featured in this great Buzzfeed article covering the food monstrosities at the Iowa State Fair.
Fans of Neatorama know we are big fans of fat cats. In fact, one of the first posts that helped Neatorama make it big was about fat cats.
That's why we're so excited to share this video about Norman with the rest of you. This Sacramento fat cat gets plenty of exercise and eats a special diet, but even so, a woman recently mistook him for a pregnant cat in labor and brought him to the vet. Fortunately, the vet recognized Norman and got him back to his owner.

Zoey the hamster can't wait to try out the first recipe from her new Jell-O cook book. While the cover features Jell-O watermelons, it looks like she's trying out some sort of cherry recipe instead. Believe it or not, the book is a hamster-sized version of The Jello Mold Mistress of Brooklyn's actual recipe book -best promotion ever.
A few years back, John posted the adorable Doctor Mew creations by Jenny Parks that show what all of The Doctors would look like as cats. If you love the series, you can now own these adorable pins featuring all of the Doctor Mews because Jenny is now selling them on Etsy for only $1 each. You'd better act fast if you want to get a hold of them because #9 is already sold out!
Nacho cookies complete with frosted jalapenos? Count me in!
Oh Sugar Events created these adorable concession stand-style treats for a baseball-themed bar mitzvah, but they would also be great for any sports party -especially the football parties soon to star up this fall.
Apparently Taco Bell has decided that everything needs to be a taco. Case in point, their chicken and waffle taco and very berry waffle taco. Unfortunately, the chicken and waffle one might be one of the most appetizing items on their breakfast menu, but they aren't even testing it any more. If you're interested in a very berry waffle taco though and happen to live in one of their test markets, you're in luck -but you better hurry.
This baby red tree kangaroo joey and his mama are residents of the San Diego Zoo. Fortunately, someone at the zoo managed to catch them during this moment of tenderness. It just shows that no matter what the species, a mother's love is unconditional.
If you watch Adventure Time, then you already know The Ice King is the most heart-breakingly darkly tragic figure in the cartoon. That's why James Hance's painting of The Ice King and Gunter is so touching.
James Hance is one of our favorite geek artists, and you if you've always wanted one of his fantastic originals, then don't miss out on your chance to grab this great work for sale on eBay with only 2 days left to go.
Animator Paolo Cogliati recently sent us a message on the Neatorama Facebook page, hoping to share his newest solo project with all of you readers. When you watch this adorable, funny and slightly dark cartoon, you'll be glad he got in touch.

A few weeks ago, I headed to a local craft fair where I stumbled upon the great fashion creations of Miss Finch's Finery. Her collection of tiny top hats and flowery hair pieces brought me in, but it wasn't until I saw her great geek hats that I recognized her work from Comic Con.
After talking to maker Shienna Mondejar, I couldn't wait to go show her fantastic geek creations to you guys. You can see more of her work on Facebook and if you like what you see, she'll be happy to custom make a hat for you if you just contact her to place an order.
Make up artist Carly Paige likes to show off her skills on Facebook. Rather than trying to show how pretty she can look, like most make up artists on the site, Carly shows how she can recreate pop culture icons. Above is her take on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and below is her version of Kim Kardashian.
You can find lots more of her great work at the link.
This is most likely Gary the Capybara and his furry friends hanging out in a fantabulous fashion ensemble. What store it is and why the critters are there, I can't tell you, but the result is still incredible.
Mac and cheese, pizza, falafel, and scrambled eggs might not be the first foods you think of when you think about a waffle iron, but they can be made in the device and the results are every bit as delicious as the more traditional versions. Just remember to clean them well so you don't end up getting bits of your cheeseburger in your brownies.
Etsy seller ohdearmolly sells this delightful Mario Kart poster with all of the potential prizes in the question mark boxes.
Personally, I'd choose the blue shell every time. Sure the star can make you invincible and the bullet helps you catch up, but I'd spite the first-place winner every time just because they're in first and I'm not.

Sugary dough surrounding Kit Kats, bacon milkshakes, hot dog-stuffed pizza crust? Where have these 11 fast food masterpieces featured on Mental Floss been all my life? And Pizza Hut, why do you keep ignoring the US when you make your best crazy products?
When was the last time you heard someone excited about eating hospital food? Probably never, right? But oddly, that hasn't stopped people from opening and others from enjoying successful hospital-themed restaurants. In fact, there are such restaurants and bars in Singapore, Taipei, Japan (with a prison hospital-theme sure to give you twice the nightmares), and Latvia. As gross as they are, they would be pretty awesome for a creepy Halloween meal.
You can check out more images of Hospitalis, the one in Latvia, at the link, but be warned, though it may be a restaurant, it may just make you lose your appetite.
You might remember that last year Lay's held a contest called "Do Us A Flavor" where Americans could vote on their favorite new chip variety as submitted by fans on Facebook. Those flavors were Cheesy Garlic Bread, Sriracha and Chicken & Waffles.
Now the Canadian Do Us A Flavour flavors have been released and they too sound delicious: Creamy Garlic Caesar, Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, Maple Moose and Perogy Platter.
After six years of being an only child, Maru just got a new adopted sister. The cat owners planned to give the two kittens a few weeks to get used to each other, but after only three days, they were already best friends playing and snuggling together. Expect to see plenty of Hana on Maru-related posts in the future.
It may not be 2015 yet, but with less than two years to go, the stars of Back to the Future II are pretty close to the age they were suposed to be when Marty and Doc go to the future. Which means we can finally take a look at how well their make up crew did at aging them. Redditor Native-New-Yorker put together the above image showing just what a great job the make up team did. You can check out a similar comparison with Michael J. Fox on Uproxx.
How would The Doctor's life look if it were mapped out as a subway map showing all the villians that the many incarnations of the Time Lord has come across as stops? This design by Crispian Jago (who previously put together a Tube Map of modern science) does a pretty darn good job of the whole thing. If you're looking for the most recent Doctors, light blue is David Tennant and orange is Matt Smith, but you really should look at the full thing at the link for a bigger view plus the color key to the corresponding Doctors.
Sure $565 is a little high for a children's bookshelf, but when it means getting your little geek to appreciate reading and Star Wars at the same time isn't that a small price to pay? Of course, the real reason for the relatively high price tag is because the design is custom made from wood by WhittledInWood and you have to pay good money when it comes to that kind of artistry.
Kara and Joe had a spy-themed wedding and while that's sort of a hard theme to express in images, this wedding program with decoder glasses really manages to sum the whole thing up.
I admit it, I'm one of those women who just wants to gently nibble on the cheeks of adorable babies. It seems in the hippo world though, babies want to nibble their mothers on the cheek.
