Star Trek Bib

Kirk: “You got Krako on ice?” Scotty: “Aye, he’s here.

The iPod Felt Case on Etsy

From Spain comes this amazing hand made felt iPhone. This bit of craftwork seems to be a one-of-a-kind object, but as with most gems that you find on Etsy if you see something that’s sold out you can always ask if the artist might create a similar piece on commission. What makes this iPhone work so well to me is that the artist went the extra mile to sew together every little icon on the screen, I just love those geeky details: Read more…

The artist behind these cute goodies is Muluc whose store on Etsy is called temple7e. Shown above is Princess Leia and below is Han Solo: Read more…

Cryptid Silhouettes Pin Pack - Loch Ness, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, Jackalope
