hollogast 2

This Hollowgast from Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children has jumped right out of your nightmares. You know, the one where you’re a child eating a watermelon that turns into a horrifying monster. Don’t worry, I have it too. We all do I assume.

This Hollowgast head, carved by Clive at Sparksfly Design, is pretty much a dead ringer for the Hollowgasts in Tim Burton’s upcoming film adaptation.

On a side note, I really wish we had giant watermelons so he could carve Audrey Two from Little Shop Of Horrors. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


Geeks are wonderful for many reasons, one of which is that they come up with wicked cool stuff like these Haunted Mansion-inspired teas.

This collection is called “A Swinging Wake” and features 11 signature blends by Emma Mosier including “In Sickness and in…Wealth” (Summer Rose for a decaying bouquet, Passionfruit for lost love, marigolds for avarice), “Delightfully Unlivable” (blended with white peony, chamomile, lapsang souchong), and “Cadaverous Pallor” (blended with black tea, lapsang souchong, lavender flowers, orange peels, blue cornflowers, natural vanilla flavor, natural bergamot flavor, natural creme flavor).

They all sound hauntingly delicious. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


Someone made an R2-D2 popcorn popper because they love us and want us to have nice, healthy, Star Wars droid made, air popped popcorn for Star Wars movie nights.

Isn’t that sweet?

Plus, this air popping droid stands a little over a foot tall, so he doesn’t take up much space and he’ll look cute on your counter.

Gimme. [click to continue…]


If you saw this wine bag we featured a while back and thought “Only 28 ounces? That’s not enough!”, then you have a new hero in Tracey Lubbers because she’s created a tote that carries a whopping FIVE LITERS of wine. Plus it looks stylish to boot.

Basically, you can carry around a bag of boxed wine without the box! Just take the bag of wine out of the box and put it in this bag. Better yet, you can fill the bag that’s included with something that isn’t swill. Better better yet, fill it with the cocktail of your choice. There’s even a cold pack to keep things chilly.

Oh and it does have pockets to hold whatever else you may want to bring along—so it can function as an actual purse.

Someone needs to make a straw attachment so I can get this and drink a little jug of Gallo at my local movie theater like a refined person. [click to continue…]


The events in Orlando have resonated all over the world and Pride celebrations reflect that. Rainbow flags and colors have been showing up all over the place in solidarity.

In honor of London Pride, Skittles decided their rainbow needed to take a back seat.

Sometimes brands get it right. As you’ll see in the video below, this was a sweet gesture in more ways than one. [click to continue…]


In all the times I’ve talked about Sam at Cakes Cove, I had no idea that she was a cosplayer.

I’m thinking that this photoshoot needs to spark a new trend. Attention everyone—we need more cosplay with cakes!

This Ghostbusters-themed menu from Japanese fast-food chain J.S. Burgers Café might come back to haunt you.

Specifically your butthole.

Their Marshmallow Mad Burger looks interesting as a dessert. I mean, I’m a fan of both Oreos and marshmallows. Who isn’t? Of course, I’d like to know what the bun is made of and what that sauce is, but it looks fairly straightforward.

Where you start to lose me is with the “G.B. Burger” which apparently has black olive and anchovy paste, some white stuff and the ubiquitous black bun.

The “Black Chili Chips” looks like a side of potato chips with some black chili beans more white stuff, some red stuff…I..yeah, no.

Finally, we get a little ectoplasm coloring with some sort of green kiwi smoothie. I think I’ve also identified little candy burgers, green maraschino cherries…and are those green corn chips? Slimer only knows.

Enjoy? [click to continue…]


Why would you ever want to eat boring old bread after seeing these delicious and adorable looking loaves by Japanese baker konel_bread? They bake the designs into the bread so that every slice from the cylindrical loaves has a cute picture inside.

From Totoro to Snoopy to Hello Kitty, carbs have never been cuter. Check out more pics and a video below. [click to continue…]


Writer Julien Therrien has made the world a better place. Upon realizing that his cat Jackie bore “a glaring resemblance to the popular emoticon Pusheen The Cat” because of her “grayish color, lack of energy and morbid obesity”, Julien decided he had to recreate Pusheen Facebook stickers using his tubby Tabby. Thank you Julien.

The food-filled ones are especially good. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]


I don’t think you can actually drink out of this Sailor Moon Rainbow Moon Chalice, but who cares about that when it can totally transform you into Super Sailor Moon*?

This replica of the 1994 Chalice has two settings that play different sounds including the transformation melody and an homage to the original theme. Plus, when you open the top, the crystal inside lights up in various colors.

*Okay, maybe I just wish this was true.
