How to Make a Tiny Festive Hat for Your Kitty

New Years Eve is coming up on us fast and while many people will be out and about for the holiday, plenty of others will be spending the night at home (myself included). If you have pets, you'll probably want them to spend the holiday with them. 

To get your little ones ready for the celebration, Buzzfeed has a great article showing you how to make your own tiny party hats perfect for a cat or small dog (if you have a big dog, regular human party hats will probably work fine).

Happy New Year everyone!

The Wonder Woman Tiara Ring

We've previously featured some of the great jewelry designs by artist Paul Michael, including his Han Solo and Death Star rings. If you like his style, but not big on Star Wars, here's one you might dig instead -a ring based on Wonder Woman's fantastic tiara. It's a fantastic gift for any lady who happens to be into strength and power.

The ring is made from warm rose gold and the star features five custom-cut kite-shaped rubies.

A Corgi Running Through The Snow, Falling In Slow Motion

(Video Link)

Those who aren't cuteficionado often don't realize how drastically different two levels of cute can be. After all, there is new-born-baby-smiling-for-the-first-time cute, and then there is corgi-falling-in-the-snow-in-slow-motion cute. Sure, many parents will probably believe that the baby is cuter, but if you're an expert in the adorable, then you almost certainly recognize that corgis are pretty much more precious than just about anything else on earth -especially when they act goofy in slow motion. 

In other words, Lucy here might just be the cutest thing ever.

Learn About American Culinary History Thanks to McDonald's Japan

We recently learned about what the McDonald's in France wrongly thinks "American" food is, and now it's time to learn what McDonald's in Japan think makes up the history of American food thanks to their upcoming "American Vintage" menu.

The restaurant is taking a trip down memory lane, starting with the fifties. So what is fifties American food like? Apparently cheeseburgers with mashed potatoes and steak sauce, and honey mustard, cheddar and bacon chicken sandwiches (actually, this one sounds pretty good). The next month, the seventies will hit the scene, which seems to mean simply throwing the word "groovy" in front of pretty standard sandwiches. Last up are the eighties burgers, which are even more half-assed as they are pretty much just BBQ burgers and chicken sandwiches that the chain claims are based on pop culture.

Ehhh, not everything can be double shiny bacon.

A Geektastic Christmas Wedding Proposal

Pretty much every gamer knows that the best reason to get married is because it's dangerous to go alone. That sentiment was once again repeated with Redditor Blakplague's Christmas marriage proposal to his girlfriend.

The great Zelda-inspired box was designed by Etsy seller Turbo Toaster Studios, who sells quite a few other cool gaming-inspired boxes in their shop.

No word on whether the girlfriend in question actually said yes, but we would hope so with this kind of a fantastic and nerdy proposal. I know I sure would!

The Mario Cat Climber

While you might not see cats playing Nintendo all that often, there are still at least a few of them out there who are big fans of the old school gaming system. After all, we've already seen some great Super Mario cat hats and a Mario cat tree. Now you can even let your cat teleport from one place to another using a Mario Bros warp pipe cat climber. 

Or at least, you could if you follow some of the steps seen on this Imgur album by WesWoodward.

It's Not Just A Cheesecake, It's A Mac and Cheese Cheesecake

Here at Neatorama, we pretty much love anything with cheese -particularly of the macaroni-and variety. This Macaroni and Cheese Cheesecake by The Food In My Beard is no exception. It swaps out the sweet graham cracker crust and sugary filling of traditional cheesecake for delicious bread crumbs and savory cheeses like cheddar. It still has cream cheese to give it that rich, thick filling you'd expect from a cheesecake, but other than that, it's pretty much nothing like what you'd expect. 

Just imagine bringing this masterpiece out at a brunch and seeing the surprise on your guests' faces.

The Cutest Hedgehog On Instagram

I don't even have Instagram, but I think I might join the site just so I can start following Darcy the Flying Hedgehog. This adorable little angel is pretty amazing, whether just lying around or posing for the newest holiday. 

She also just has non-holiday adventures in her little hedgehog world, like playing with toy soldiers, the Hungry Caterpillar or even a hair brush. Darcy's owner is professional photographer Shota Tsukamoto, who says that he wants the little critter to feel like she is living out the life of a character in a children's book.

Imagining New Actors In Superhero Movies

I have to preface this by saying that I absolutely loved Heath Ledger's Joker and I don't think anyone could have done it better -even an amazing actor like Benedict Cumberbatch. Even so, it's sure fun to imagine how different the film would have been with him as Batman's nemesis.

On the other hand, I would pay money in a second to go see Bruce Lee as Spider-Man. These fantastic "what if" artworks are from the mind of artist Alex Tuis and they are all worth a look, even for the ones that make you thank heaven they weren't cast in that role.

As It Turns Out, Christmas Tinner Is Real

(Video Link)

We first told you about Christmas Tinner at the beginning of the month and then we found it fit in well with our list of 12 crazy Christmas foods. Originally, we suspected it was just a hoax, but it turns out that at least one of these 12-layer food monstrosities was created, canned and eaten -and here's the review.

We still don't know if there were really many of these available or how many people actually ate them, but we do know now that they were created by British video game store chain Game and this one can was real.

Maple Pecan Cupcakes With Buttermilk Pancakes On Top

Pancakes are appropriately named as they are essentially just cakes cooked in a pan instead of in an oven -which is why they make such great breakfasts. It's also why we're amazed they never appeared on a cupcake before. The Moonblush Baker remidied this problem by making these adorable pancake-stacked cupcakes and she even made sure to match the flavors with pecan and maple so they are a heavenly combination of classic breakfast and dessert flavors.

The only thing that could possibly make them better would be Nutella and bacon -as those two things could make everything better.

10 Awesome Disney-Inspired Kids Rooms

Kids everywhere love Disney movies, so they'll pretty much all love these amazing Disney-inspired rooms in our newest article on Homes and Hues. From Tinker Bell to Dumbo, films from all eras are represented in these rooms. 

While there are some absolutely amazing princess rooms, I'm a particularly big fan of the Pixar ones, like the Nemo one above, designed by experts at HGTV, and this Toy Story one by Living Lullaby Designs

If you like these type of clever designs, but prefer something a little more adult and a lot more geeky, don't miss our previous article featuring the Best Star Wars Furniture That Imperial Credits Can Buy.

Musical Stairs Make Stepping Up Fun

Safety and fun rarely go hand and hand, but with the musical steps designed by David Blair Ross and Leander Angerer, a staircase is transformed into a fantastic harp that also protects little ones from falling and getting stuck between the balusters. 

The project required drilling over 1000 holes into a vintage Victorian staircase in order to maintain the structure and design as much as possible while making the stairs safer and more visually interesting. Essentially they transform the stairway into a three-story toy.

See more of the harp stairs at Homes and Hues and don't miss these other 10 Staircases That Really Take It to the Next Level.

Awesome Minimalist Disney Posters

Disneyland has gone through dozens of rennovations over the years, and even more different art styles for posters advertising the rides. In fact, the park now works with all kinds of great artists to create art based on the theme park's attractions.

Tony Sherg is not one of the artists professionally affiliated with the park, but he should be because his fantastic minimalist art reflects the fantastic history of Disneyland with vintage-styled minimalist art based on all of their rides and even some of their special holiday attractions.

Can You Dig It?

(Video Link)

Gracie here is either ready to go swimming or to dig down to the source of the water so she can get to the giant swimming pool underneath. I really love the part where she puts her face under the faucet and then jumps back excited and happy. 

Either way, what she's doing is both totally silly and utterly adorable, something we highly support here at Neatorama.

The Cthulhu Christmas Tree

Sure, Christmas might be over and Santa Claus might have already visited the good girls and boys of the world, but Cthulhumas isn't here yet and Santa Cthulhu (or Cthulhuclaus as I like to call him) have yet to come around to the homes of all the evil children of the globe. 

Twitter user Craig Engler is all ready for the big day though thanks to this delightful Cthulhumas tree by . I just wonder if he'll be enjoying cthurkey for dinner.

Nutella Cinnamon Rolls

The other day someone asked on the Neatorama Facebook if Nutella is the new bacon. I don't think they can be traded out for one another. In fact, you can even have Nutella and bacon together

Regardless of you opinion of trends or bacon though, Nutella is pretty much amazing and like bacon, it should be incorporated into other foods as often as possible. For example, these Nutella cinnamon rolls by Gimme Some Oven take something good and make it into something amazing by adding a little magic chocolate and hazelnut flavors. My mouth is watering just looking at them.

Reader Holiday Photos

I've been inviting readers to send in photos of their families and pets over the last week. Little Cooper here's owner has sent in great photos of the budgie every time I've asked for reader pictures and they never disappoint.

This happy little birdie knows how to have herself a Merry Little Christmas -complete with a tree and presents just her size.

Cooper and her owner are the only readers who submitted great Christmas photos to us. Here is Greg Williams' great Christmas card for the year showing what happens when the pets take over for the holidays. Nothing's scarier than dogs and cats living together in harmony trying to destroy us all.

11 Things You Didn't Know About Santa Claus

You probably think of him as a fat guy in a big red suit, but you'd be surprised at how much you don't know about both the real St. Nick and his traditional legend. For example, his red suit was only standardized in 1931, thanks to an ad campaign by Coca Cola.

According to legend, he fought to save young women from prostitution, fought off a cannibalistic butcher and even spoke immediately after being born, exclaiming, "God be glorified." Find out more about Old St. Nick over at io9.

Maymo and Penny Celebrate Christmas

(Video Link)

Dashing through the snow in a one dog open sleigh, over the fields they go, barking all the way. After that, the two discover they can get in even more fun Christmasy adventures, digging through stockings, smashing decorations, ripping open the presents -and that's just the start of the mayhem.

Well, if they're going to get in this much trouble, at least they look cute while doing it -especially with those reindeer antlers. Just imagine the police lineup they would end up in.

The Amazing Glass Barn of the Netherlands

No, that's not some odd Photoshop of an imaginary building. It's a real picture of a real place in Schijndel, Netherlands. The reason it looks so strange is because it is actually a glass building with a barn printed on the glass. Certain areas are more or less transparent than others, which means you can see right through some of the building, while other parts are mostly opaque.

The exterior is a composite design of local barns from throughout the area, blown up to be 1.6 the size of an average barn so adults standing outside often feel a sense of nostalgia like they are little kids visiting a neighbor's barn for the first time. 

You can learn more about the Glass Barn over at Homes and Hues and if you like this, you may also enjoy the warped window in London, the grass-covered home of Austria and the totally public glass bathroom in Japan.

A Warped Window in London

Surreal design might not be the first thing you think about when you consider churches from the 1700s, but London's Church of St. Martin in the Fields might surprise you with this wonderfully warped window designed by architect Shirazeh Houshiary. The original window was destroyed during the air raids of WWII and while the new design might not be what you'd expect to see in a neoclassical building, the use of thick frosted glass with a clear centerpiece is a perfect way to promote the clarity one hopes to get from prayer.

You can see more fantastic pictures of the window and read more about it over at Homes and Hues. And, if you like surreal design elements, don't miss the Mysterious Lawn Home of Frohnleiten, Austria.

Say Hello to The Game of Thrones Slug

Daenerys Targaryen is pretty much my favorite female character from the last decade. She's tough, she's beautiful, she's kind and she's smart. And now, she has a sea slug named after her. The decision was made by Federal University of Ceará Tropical Marine master's student Felipe de Vasconcelos Silva, who discovered the slug and thought that it looks like her beautiful braids. The scientific name of the slug is Tritonia khaleesi after Daenarys' title in the series, but I think we should give it the nickname Daenarys Slugaryen. 

Sure, it might be pretty, but can it raise an army and serve as mother to dragons? Because those are critical pieces of what makes Daenerys so fantastic.
