ackbar drink holder

Don’t burn your hands! Let Ackbar keep you protected with his face. This crocheted cup sleeve won’t be scared of traps or beverages of any temperature, and Ackbar’s googly eyes will watch you while you drink – in a friendly, non-creepy way. Flickr user Overweight glob of grease crafted this Mon Calamari and mentions that this free octopus coffee cup sleeve pattern will help you craft an Ackbar of your own.

shot glass crawler 1

Want to make drinking shots a little more creepy? If so, you need these shot glass crawlers from Christopher Cordingley. He loves the form and expression of human hands so he designed a series of ceramic shot glasses that look like hands in motion. They are a little weird, but it’s a cool design that’s not quite like anything I’ve seen before.

They come in .6, 1, 1.5, or 2 ounces and are available in a variety of colors. The black ones would be perfect for Halloween celebrations.

See more pics of the glasses after the break.

1b56_star_wars_salt_pepper_shakers

Quick heads up: If you plan on inviting a certain Sith lord over for dinner, you should know that he has a thing for pepper. If you run out, he may find your lack of pepper… disturbing. So make sure to stock up on plenty of the spicy stuff by getting this Darth Vader pepper shaker.

Naturally, every Sith lord needs a good minion, so the set comes complete with a companion Stormtrooper saltshaker.

P-Whiskey_0409

If you’re on a Whiskeys Of The World quest or you’ve ever wondered about all of the different types of whiskey available and where you can find them, you can get a nice 18″x24″ poster by Pop Chart Lab that can help you out.

Rye, wheat, corn, American, single malt, blended, whisky without the E — it’s all here.

Of course, we’re not advocating you drink your way across the world, but it looks like quite a delicious journey.

death star cupcakes 1

The domed tops of cupcakes are the perfect shape to become a Death Star. This take on the powerful battle station by Stuffed Cakes is sugary and not quite as intimidating. These delicious-looking desserts are almost as detailed as the ship; you can spot the familiar lines and the all important laser dish. However, I can’t spot any thermal exhaust port flaws in this design.

Check out a close up after the break.

kfc corsage

Prom season is here, and you don’t want to present your date with any old corsage. Spice up the traditional flower bracelet with some KFC. The fast food joint has partnered with Nanz & Kraft Florists to offer the limited edition drumstick corsage – only 100 are available.

The corsage kit doesn’t actually come with chicken, just a $5 KFC “gift check” so you choose whether to include Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken in the corsage with fresh baby’s breath. For $20, I’d say it’s not such a bad deal, and it’s certainly something your prom date will remember forever. And hey, it’d be great to have a snack on hand (literally) during the dance.

Watch KFC’s ad for the chicken corsage after the break.

doctor who candy cake

Getting married is all about making compromises, and it starts with the ceremony. So, if one half of the couple wants candy on the wedding cake, and the other half wants to feature Doctor Who, you just make it work. Lucy Partridge made this sweet time-traveling dessert, and I like all the adornments on both the candy and Who sides. All it needs is a Fourth Doctor posed beside it with jelly babies.
