We all have our favorite web sites, those that we visit on a regular basis, maybe even several times a day. But have you ever thought of your favorite web sites as dresses? I don’t know about you, but that would never have entered my mind. Thanks to Deviant Artist *Neko-Vi, we have a visual representation of our favorite (or not-so-favorite maybe) web sites as dresses.
Everyone’s all excited about the Dr. Who Christmas Special, aren’t they? It is not surprising as this tradition has spanned generations. The holidays are just more exciting with something additional to look forward to.
And when it comes to Dr. Who, it is not only the Doctor and his companion that piques the interest of viewers. If anything, the TARDIS has gotten so much more attention from fans all over the world. How can one not want a TARDIS of his own? This seemingly innocuous police call box is a world of wonders inside. Your very own time machine.
Mashups have been done of practically everything you can think of. Some of them are awesome, some not so awesome. Here’s a mashup that will make you really happy if you like Star Wars (and are starting to hate Lucas, maybe), and you believe that you were a pirate in your previous life. The tee shirt is called YArr2-D2, definitely not the most imaginative name, but still catchy.
The YArr2-D2 tee shirt is designed by Glen O’Neill, who describes himself as a being “just a big geeky artist”. He is based in Victoria, Canada. His day job is Production Coordinator at a place called The Martlet, but what is really cool is that he designs tees and draws comics in his spare time. From the looks of this latest tee that he designed, we should all be thankful for his employer as it seems he gets the spare time to come up with awesome things that ordinary mortals like you and me can enjoy.
Halloween seems to be the talk of the town, and rightly so. From costumes to food to drinks – everything about this holiday seems to incite a different kind of excitement. Yesterday, I shared this web site that has a good selection of pirate costumes that can make you the star of any Halloween party that you go to. If pirates are not your thing and you prefer a time machine that looks like a phone box, then you probably will go for the TARDIS. (I totally understand your sentiment, by the way.) Alternatively, you might want to go with the Daleks.
If you are hooked on the Doctor, here’s something that you will definitely want for yourself: TARDIS Prime. (I know I want one!) It’s a shirt that celebrates the awesomeness that is the TARDIS, while at the same time incorporating the concept of the Transformers. I don’t think anyone can deny just how formidable that combination can be, do you?
What do you do with your old sneakers? I honestly do not know what happens to mine after I either throw them away or give them way. If we are serious about wanting to make our own contributions to helping the environment, here is a great – although a bit silly – idea that we may want to consider.
At the Amsterdam International Fashion Week’s Green Fashion Competition, a new line of shoes won second place this year. Dubbed OAT shoes, the sneakers can actually be planted when you’re tired of them – or when they give out, for that matter. It can be argued that ANY pair of sneakers can be planted in the ground, but the OAT shoes are the first kind that “sprout”. Now, I don’t know about you, but when I read “sprout”, I think leaves and stems coming out of the ground. How exactly the shoes do that – I have no idea. The concept is pretty cool, though.
Here’s the whole idea in a nutshell. I don’t know about you, but I doubt that any sneakers that I have used will look this fresh, though.
Here are two variations of the OAT shoes.
Now I know I said that the shoes are cool, but there is no denying that the choice of model is anything but, is there? This is how they demoed the shoes.
These shoes will be available this spring in stores in The Netherlands and Belgium, as well as online for those who are located elsewhere.
