It’s hard heading back to work after a long holiday weekend, but making this fantastic cocktail when you’re back home will make it all better. A combination of gin, Curacao and blackberry syrup, this glowing blue concoction inspired by Destiny is the perfect way to end the day.

Mash-up costumes seem to be increasingly popular, and cosplayers continually surprise me with something new. Like Ronald McDonald Thor. The McDonald’s mascot has gotten his greasy fingerprints all over Mjölnir, and he’s probably going to take over all the fast food joints on the planet. Loki help us.
This cosplayer was spotted at New York Comic Con and photographed by Otakus & Geeks.
If you like the idea of including a side of zombie with your charcuterie board or if you just want get some zombie slashing practice in, then these cutting boards from Dave Stencil might be for you. The wood boards are made from bamboo, maple, cherry, and mahogany in two sizes with three different zombie designs.
The boards are currently on Kickstarter and have already surpassed their fundraising goal. However, you can still back the project and pre-order your board. Estimated delivery for the zombie cutting boards is November.

Here’s a new twist on chocolate walnut skull candies that’s sure to put happy grimaces on your guest’s faces this Halloween. It’s the work of illustrators and graphic designers Ruth & Sira who hail from Spain.

Keigo Atobe is a character from The Prince of Tennis, which is a very popular manga and anime that’s all-about one thing: soccer. Yeah, joking, sorry: it’s all about tennis, of course.
October 4 was Keigo’s “birthday,” and the Japanese snack company Morinaga hosted a super special birthday celebration in honor of the character in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro. The company made an image of Keigo’s face out of Dars chocolate squares, and, according to Twitter user Misz, over 8,600 Dars chocolate squares were used to make the image. Also, tons (and I mean tons) of fans showed up to how their love for the anime character.
Actually, it looks more like a funeral than a birthday party. See more pics after the break…
Yes, we all know that Nick from Dude Foods loves bacon. If the man had a Game of Thrones style family sigil, I guarantee that bacon (along with the words “Never stop frying”) would be up there. But I will admit that I was a bit surprised that Nick went so far as to create S’mores Bacon in his most recent post. I mean, marshmallow and bacon? Sounds nuts, but after looking at the pictures, it does look rather tasty. Basically, Nick cooked up some bacon and spread melted marshmallows over each strip. Then he sprinkled graham crackers on and tossed everything in the oven. Oh, and he made Hershey’s chocolate dipping sauce too. Yum!

Turn up the heat and put on a bright and spicy Sriracha hooded sweatshirt. This officially licensed product from ThinkGeek features the familiar logo, and it has a green hood to match the hot sauce’s green cap. The only sad part about this hoodie? Sriracha won’t come out when you squeeze the wearer.

Taco Bell has the best beverages and treats. They already have the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze, but now they’re getting even cooler with a Starburst Freeze. The brand new menu item was made available starting yesterday, and it looks pink, sugary, and refreshing. I can’t wait to try it. I wonder if it will go with a Doritos taco?
It looks like a cake with a lot of chocolate pieces added all over the place, but there’s more to this cake than what you see at first glance. It’s actually an old-fashioned zoetrope that uses the positioning of all the pieces of chocolate combined with flickering lights to make it look like the chocolate is animated when the cake spins.
This particular zoetrope can be found at Phillip Island Chocolate Factory near Melboure, Australia. It’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch.
