As much as I love how sturdy my leather iPad case is (I forget the brand), I have always thought it was a bit bulky for as plain as it is (all black).  I’ve been considering getting a new iPad case for a while but haven’t had much luck coming across anything I liked with a high geek factor.  Until now!

Etsy seller MyGeekyBoyfriend is the awesome person selling this fantastic hand-made, felt Boba Fett iPad case (which I would actually consider more of a sleeve) for just $29.00!  It also has a pouch for carrying your earbuds which is something all iPad cases need!

For those lucky enough to have an iPhone 4/4S that needs a case and you also happen to be a big Mass Effect fan, than I have the case for you!  The amazing people over at ThinkGeek is selling this really cool looking Mass Effect N7 armor iPhone 4/4S case for just $24.99!  And that’s not all!  With the awesome Mass Effect iPhone case, you also can download a matching wallpaper from the manufacture’s website and you will receive a Collector Assault Rifle DLC code.  Seems like a pretty good bargain to me!  It makes me wish I had an iPhone!

I always enjoy seeing some amazing stained glass when it is not in some kind of religious context.  Religious stained glass can be amazing but its so common I almost don’t see it as special anymore.  However, it is pretty rare to come across some awesome video game inspired stained glass which is why I was really excited when I saw this beautiful Halo Legendary Spartan Shield stained glass.  DeviantART user Veggie-San is the creator of this amazing Halo Legendary Spartan Shield stained glass and they also take orders for this although no price is mentioned so who knows how much it costs to be the owner if this amazing Halo awesomeness.

Not too long after I changed focus from Global Geek News being a tech news and opinion site to a geek culture site, I posted about a mind blowing Super Mario Bros bathroom.  I honestly never expected to see something like that again, much less one that was even cooler.  Well, here it is!

Somebody with a love for 8-bit gaming decided to go wild and decorate everything in their bathroom to look like Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.  I can’t decide if my favorite part of this bathroom is the Pac-Man trash can or the Super Mario Bros toilet seat.  This bathroom also incorporates some things I have blogged in the past including the question block light and the NES controller soap.  Clearly, the perfect bathroom!

While I am not a chalk fan (too dusty), one of the reasons I love locally owned coffee houses and smaller restaurants is for their creative chalkboard menu art.  I usually don’t care much about the daily specials as I am a creature of habit when it comes to what I eat and drink, but I love to see the cool art on the menus.  Although I didn’t get to see this work of art in person, this Legend of Zelda inspired chalk menu art is amazing!  In Champaign, Illinois, there is a coffee shop known as Espresso Royale that employes local chalk artist Sara Jahn to make works of art like this Legend of Zelda inspired chalk art featuring Link and Navi.  Very impressive!

Recently, I have posted all kinds of awesome R2-D2 stuff from hand-painted R2-D2 TOMS shoes to R2-D2 high heels, but I think this pair of hand-painted R2-D2 shorts takes the cake.  Tumblr blogger Productive Slacker is the creator of these amazing R2-D2 shorts and while they are clearly only for women, I can’t help but want a pair for myself (although I might not have the butt for them).  Something tells me even the R2-D2 obsessed woman I posted about not long ago is probably envious of these amazing shorts!
