TMNT Wrestlers

TMNT Wrestlers

One passion of mine that I never talk about on here is my love for professional wrestling.  I have been a huge fan ever since I was a kid and I often structure my evenings around whatever wrestling show happens to be on at the time (and no, I don’t pay for the WWE Network because it lacks the content I want most).  Well, when I saw this video combining my love for professional wrestling with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I knew I had to share it on here.

The video below shows the tag teams known as Tortuguillos Karatekas and Tortugas Ninjas wrestling each other dressed as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Arena López Mateos in Tlalnepantla, Mexico.  I wish I could see the whole match but even this clip is still pretty cool!  Cowabunga dudes!

Not being a very crafty person, I could never dream of making something like the spectacular Halo Master Chief cross-stitch seen below.  I guess I just didn’t get the crafty genes from my mother because she can do stuff like cross-stitch and I could never do something like that.  However, I don’t have to be able to do it to appreciate it and that is a good thing because this Master Chief cross-stitch is quite impressive!

The wife of Reddit user OkieCoder created this Halo Master Chief cross-stitch masterpiece over a period of five months.  The end product was made of a mind blowing 51,900 stitches!  Talk about dedication!

If you have have some crafty skills and have made any geeky wonders like the one below, let us know in the comments below!

If there is one thing that never fails to bring a smile to my face, it is a really good console mod.  In the past, I have posted a bunch of amazing NES console mods (just search ‘NES mods’ on the right to find them), but I think this is probably the first one I have posted where the end product looked absolutely nothing like an NES.  Where most console mods I see do fancy things with an existing NES, this one seems to have thrown the iconic NES look out the window and shoved the innards into a toaster instead!

This toaster Nintendo Entertainment System mod was created by Jarno Kotavuopio.  It has a ton of cool lights and buttons but most importantly, it is still a fully functional Nintendo NES!

Below is a picture as well as video of the impressive build.  I love that even the controller got a little attention and now the Nintendo logo on it lights up!

Much to the dislike of my bathroom scale, I have been eating perhaps more than my fair share of cookies lately.  I just can’t seem to help myself so I just grab a handful of them whenever I see somebody have them sitting out.  However, its probably a good thing that nobody has had cookies as awesome as these Star Trek and Doctor Who cookies otherwise I would probably take all of them.

These incredible looking Doctor Who and Star Trek cookies were created by Mallory Mae from Butterwinks.  If you are interested in finding out how she made this cookies and how you can make your own, she has an online course called Piping Cookies That Pop on Craftsy.

These cookies are so well done, I honestly don’t think I can pick a favorite!  The Kirk, Spock and Uhura cookies have an adorable cartoony look to them while the Doctor Who cookies are just plain awesome, especially the Dalek and TARDIS.  Which cookie is your favorite?

With Valentine’s Day this last weekend, I had a feeling that I might see some really geeky and awesome engagement ring boxes and it looks like I was right!  In the past, I have featured a couple of really cool Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring boxes like this one that plays music and another one that has some great art work on it.  However, as cool as those are, I think this one with a floating rupee is my favorite!

This handmade Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box with a floating rupee was created by Etsy seller IndyFurniture.  They are selling this Zelda engagement ring box for $60.  Not only does it have the cool floating rupee effect, but it has some lights on the bottom to make sure you have the perfect lighting for that special moment when you ask that special someone to marry you.  However, if you want the full effect, you will have to sing the treasure chest opening sound when you go to open it.
