Fancy Dresses Inspired By The Avengers

These Avengers inspired dresses, which were designed by Kelsey Michele, are bringing a touch of couture to comic book culture, and they look like a fun way to show the world you're a geek with loads of class!

Sadly, they're still at the conceptual drawing phase, but I'll smile my face off if I ever see someone wearing one of these super powered ensembles to an awards show or fancy folks party.

Sculptures Made Out Of Photographs

Susy Oliveira isn't content with letting photographs lay around looking all flat and boring, so she shapes them into three dimensional sculptures that put the gee in geometrical.

What would be considered dead wrong in the world of texturing CGI models looks rather fantastic on the surface of a humanoid shaped paper sculpture, sprawled out on the floor and covered in polygonal planes like he just escaped from the Matrix.

Through this technique you can find out exactly what a person is made out of, and you'll know just where they've been...

The Heavy Metal Quilts Of Ben Venom

These aren't your grandma's quilts, although I'm sure she would respect the skill and originality it took to create these comfy works of fabric art.

Created by Ben Venom, a man with a name so metal that his soft rock friends stopped calling him, these heavy metal quilts bring the love of snuggling together with head banging imagery, and they're sure to make the Dreamlands a much more treacherous place.

If you're in San Francisco why not check out these softly screaming works for yourself at the Guerrero Gallery, now through July 7th.

A Pixar Style Version Of Justice League America

Digital artist Daniel Araya created these fun concept art pieces that envision what a Pixar version of DC's Justice League of America would look like.

The characters look like they'd fit right in with The Incredibles, but the fact that Disney owns Marvel Comics means that a DC/Pixar movie is about as likely as a real life Superman falling to earth just outside of Smallville, USA.

This Is One Gnarly Skateboarding Video

(YouTube Link)

The skater featured in this exciting video is Aaron "Jaws" Homoki, and I have a feeling he'll be looking to get on a leg bone transplant list after taking so many dangerous drops!

He makes leaping from such great heights look easy, although I'm sure his slam video is incredibly painful to watch.

Picasso's Guernica, Starring the X-Men

What would Picasso do to get back in the spotlight if he were alive today? Why, add the Uncanny X-Men to his classic mural Guernica,  of course!

This piece was created by Cynthia Rodgers for the Comic Book Resources contest The Line Is Drawn, where contributors were asked to imagine radical re-designs for classic comic book characters. I'd say this piece definitely qualifies as radical!

10 Reasons Why Getting A Garfield Tattoo Is A Terrible Idea

Adventure Time Meets Studio Ghibli

In terms of cuteness this Adventure Time X Studio Ghibli mashup by illustrator Deighvid rates 100% on the adorability scale.

This mashup series looks like it was meant to be, because the character design styles from both series mesh together so well.

And the most impressive bit about these fun illustrations- they were drawn by a seventeen year old!

A Robber Fly With Some Sweet Dance Moves

(YouTube Link)

This video features a robber fly getting down to the song Too Close by Alex Clare, proving that this fly guy has what it takes to put his enemies in check both on and off the dance floor.

I love these silly little "sync a video of something moving to a popular song" videos, but I can't help but think that this little guy would look good getting down to any song with a beat. Remixers, do your thing!

Popular Characters As Pac-Man Ghosts

This simply adorable bunch of ghostly characters comes to you courtesy of graphic designer Ryan Coleman, who played Pac-Man for so long that he's started seeing things, like Bender's face on Blinky's body.

Someone should make an indie Pac-Man spin-off with these cute little guys, in order to literally feed the Pac-People's obsession with popular culture!

This Is How DJs Mixed Records Over 100 Years Ago

Think Disco or early Hip Hop DJs invented mixing and crossfading? I thought the same thing, until I read about this wondrous device.

It's called the Chronophone, and it was invented in 1910 by French engineer Leon Gaumant to sync sound and film when the length of one gramophone simply wasn't enough.

It's capable of crossfading and mixing via two platters, with the sound pumped out via "twin gramophones, driven from a common electric motor between them. An air hose goes to each valvebox from the control valve just under the air pressure gauge...this control valve allowed the operator to crossfade between the two gramophones."

I wonder what people would have thought about scratching records in 1910?

The Art Of Ron English And....Chris Brown?

In what must be the most unlikely pairing ever, artiste extraordinaire Ron English and pop star/face puncher Chris Brown participated in a joint art show together entitled Dumb English and, to my surprise, Chris Brown's paintings aren't the worst thing I've ever seen scrawled on canvas.

Sure, his style is a bit contrived, and each piece looks like it took him about ten minutes to paint, but I expected far less from the singer so color me impressed!

I betcha Ron will look back upon this show with a smirk on his face and a stiff drink in hand, candy colored memories dancing in his head...

Man Of Steel Costumes Revealed

Did you know that a new Superman movie is in the works? I did, and frankly I didn't care...until I saw these badass costumes!

Exploring the Man Of Steel's darker side is nothing new, and we all know about his Kryptonian origin story, but these suits look like they combine the two and finally present Superman as a mighty alien warrior, and not just some nerd in tights.

Hopefully Man Of Steel will give old Supes the proper reboot treatment he deserves, but even if the movie stinks the costumes look really cool!

The Portable Couch Perfect For An Active Lifestyle

There are many times in life when I find myself wishing for a comfortable place to sit, but who has the strength to lug an entire sofa around on their back?

Enter the Picnic Time Reflex Portable Reclining Travel Couch, a portable couch with a really long name that conveniently folds up into a bag like shape no bigger than your average laptop bag.

It makes sitting on your duff an outside sport, and looks way more comfortable than sitting on the ground. But where's the built-in drink holder?!

Help me bid bon voyage to Best Week Ever by watching a collection of internet videos which are sure to bring the funny for years to come. *tears*

This Retro McDonald's Review Video Is Very YouTube-esque

(YouTube Link)

The little guy in this video is Weird Paul P, and every video logger ever owes him lots of money and a "concept by" end credit.

Okay, maybe that's asking a bit much, but Paul was definitely on to something with his video review of the McDonald's breakfast platter, which he filmed waaaay back in 1984, and probably would have single-handedly invented YouTube if he knew how.

You may be asking yourself - who was Paul making his video review of McDonald's breakfast foods for? The world may never know...

The Quest To Save The Lars Homestead

This set piece is called the Lars Homestead, and Star Wars fans across the galaxy were shocked to hear that it had fallen into disrepair.

Out of nowhere, a band of geeks appeared, hell bent on saving it from certain doom, with the interwebs lending a monetary hand via the Save The Lars Homestead Campaign.

What will happen to this iconic set piece? Who donated money to help keep this structure looking good? And how do the residents of Tunisia feel about this geek preservation campaign?

Find out when the guys behind the project put out a book and DVD, with all the profits going to the preservation of the Homestead, right? *wink*

Here's A Funny GIF About Facebook Stock

As I mentioned above, here's a GIF about Facebook stock prices plummeting, and the movie version of Zuckerberg isn't taking the news very well.

It took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride and wasted ten valuable seconds of my life that I'll probably miss when the Grim Reaper shows up pointing his bony finger at me. Yay for the goofy crap found on the interwebs!

Phlegm is hitting the U.K. streets with a fresh style straight from the olden days, a decidedly illustrative style inspired by woodblock printing and engraving.

His whimsical works add a sense of mystery and fairy tale charm to the cityscapes in which they reside, and it must be fun for urban explorers to come across one of Phlegm's pieces lurking under a bridge.
