Archives For Cool pictures

Although I got my start in blogging (long before the term was invented) by writing for various Command & Conquer fansites, I think I have always preferred the Age of Empires series to C&C.  Of course one of my favorite Age games is Age of Mythology.  It brought a lot of fun mechanics to the series and it was just a lot of fun to play with friends a little more so than some of the other games in the series in my opinion.  Anyway, before I talk about Age of Mythology all day, I better get to the point of this post and that is some amazing Isis cosplay!

This spectacular Age of Mythology Isis cosplay comes from cosplayer Major Sam.  I found her post about her recent Age of Mythology cosplay on Reddit and I knew I had to share it because not only is it awesome, I think it is also the only Age of Mythology cosplay I have ever seen.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that Isis is my favorite goddess to use in the game as well.  I think it turned out great and I look forward to seeing the cosplay she does in the future!  If you want more pictures of this cosplay, hit up the source link below as she has a couple more pictures on her Facebook page.

After wearing the same God of War hat for nearly two years (same design, 3 different hats), I’ve decided that its time to make a change.  However, I still want to stick with the whole warrior idea so when I found this really cool Klingon hat, I knew it had to be my next hat.  I’ve always wanted a Star Trek hat but I’ve never found a design I really like until now.

The amazing folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this sweet Klingon hat for $24.99!  As for the size, it is adjustable with a back hook-and-loop strap.  While I will admit that is more than I typically care to spend for a hat, when combined with a little something else, they have a nice sale going on right now that really helps with the price.  If you use the code ‘BIGRED’ at checkout through Wednesday (4/15/2015), you can save 20% off an order of $50+, 25% off an order of $100+ or 30% off an order of $150+!  If you are looking to pick up some geeky gear at a nice discount, now is the time to do it!

Death Star Latte Art

Jeremy Bray —  March 27, 2015 — Leave a comment

It has been a while since I have posted some nerdy latte art (search for latte art on the right to see all of the amazing latte art I have posted about in the past), so when I saw this Death Star latte art on the front page of the Star Wars subreddit, I thought I should post it on here.

This awesome Star Wars latte art features a great looking Death Star and Tie Bomber.  Sadly, I’m not sure who the barista is who made this to give them credit (let us know in the comments below if you know who they are), but they did a fantastic job!  The froth is strong with this one!

On a side note, I have always wondered if baristas charge extra to do stuff like this or are you just expected to tip more?  I’m not a coffee person so I’m unfamiliar with the situation.  Feel free to enlighten me in the comments below because I am truly curious!

If you have been reading Global Geek News for a while, you know that one of my favorite things to post is nerdy wedding cakes.  They always look amazing so I just can’t help but fall in love with them.  Well, I have come across yet another incredible gaming wedding cake that I knew I had to share.

This amazing gaming wedding cake features tiers of Super Mario Bros (I’m not sure which one), Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man with some Legend of Zelda hearts on top.  The level of detail is quite impressive!

Sadly, I don’t know who made the cake to give them credit or who the happy couple is to congratulate them so if anybody knows, please post in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

One of my favorite arcade games to play in various restaurants around town when I was a kid was Pac-Man.  Sadly, all but one or two restaurants have taken the old Pac-Man games out but at least I can play it on my phone when I get the urge.  However, Pac-Man food isn’t as easy to come by.

Back in January, I posted some really cool Pac-Man cupcakes that I found at my State Fair last year but I have to admit, I would much rather eat these Pac-Man cookies!

I’m not sure who made these delicious looking cookies but they were posted on Reddit by user mcmullet.  Whoever made them (possibly mcmullet), they did an amazing job with a couple of exceptions.  First, Where the heck is Inky?!  And second, why is Pac-Man headed right toward Blinky?  Does he have a death wish?  I want answers!

Tired of using the same old silverware/plasticware to eat your dinner?  Well, now you can kick dinner time into another dimension thanks to these fantastic timey wimey eating utensils!

The nerdy people over at ThinkGeek are selling this Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver cutlery set for just $23.99 right now!  That is 20% off the normal $29.99 price!  I’m not sure how long the sale price will last, so I would jump on this deal before it goes away!  That said, even at $30, I think this set is still worth it if you are a Doctor Who fan like I am!  FYI, these are made of plastic and stainless steel and they are dishwasher safe!

Sonic Screwdriver eating utensils might be overkill for a nice dinner of fish fingers and custard but you can’t live on those so I’m sure you will find other dishes to use these with.
