If you have been reading Global Geek News for a decent length of time, you probably know that my absolute favorite video game franchise is God of War.  Heck, if you have passed me on the street you could probably guess that I love God of War because I never leave the house without my God of War cap on my head (my eyes are very sensitive to light so a hat is necessary and now I just feel naked without it).  Speaking of God of War, I just came across this female Kratos cosplay that I thought was so good that I just had to share it on here.

This incredible female Kratos cosplay is done by Chilean cosplayer Diamond Cosplay.  The Blades of Chaos were made by propmaker Kenrai Hóuzi and the stunning photography was done by photographer Esteban Chacón of Web TeamJapan Foto.

While I love the costume, the makeup, Blades of Chaos and the photography, I think what captures my attention most is her eyes which I assume are one of those colored contact things.  There just seems to be an intensity to them that makes me have trouble looking away.  If that was the goal, I would say job well done!

I know that guys are supposed to love trucks but I have just never been a truck fan.  They are handy to have when you need to move some furniture or do a major cleanup of your yard or something but for general purpose transportation, I am a car guy.  Most of my dislike of trucks comes from the fact that I just don’t like tall vehicles.  I prefer to be as low to the ground as I can get (as long as it isn’t so low that it makes it difficult to get in and out of the car).  However, I would probably be a proud truck owner if I happened to own this sweet Halo 4 inspired UNSC themed Ford F-150 SVT Raptor!

While browsing Reddit last week, I came across the picture of this awesome Halo pickup that one redditor’s friend spotted at a gas station.  After doing a little digging, it turns out this Halo truck is a UNSC themed Ford F150 SVT Raptor that was given away as the main prize for the Halo 4 Infinity Challenge last year.  I wish I had known about this competition because I would have liked to have a shot at owning this truck!

If you want to see more pictures of this Halo edition Ford F-150 Raptor, I found a small gallery over on Motor Review that you should check out.

Even in the glorious days of GPS, I still find myself getting lost quite often.  Usually, I don’t get too lost but since my GPS isn’t always accurate especially when it comes to areas like large shopping centers, I have a tendency to take a wrong turn occasionally and have to back track to get to where I need to go.  Well, while I may have to circle around a few blocks to get to where I am trying to go on occasion, I have never got so lost that I ended up in the Mushroom Kingdom.  Well, apparently Link has.

The folks over at TeeTurtle have put this awesome ‘Legendarily Lost’ Legend of Zelda / Super Mario mash-up t-shirt on sale for just $15 for the next week (affiliate link so they know we sent you).  It is available for both men and women and you can get it in sizes up to 3XL.

If you are a fan both the Legend of Zelda and the Super Mario Bros, you need this shirt!  If you like both of those and have a horrible sense of direction like I do, then you really need this shirt!

While I have never been interested in beer much less playing beer pong, I did enjoy collecting Pokemon cards as a kid.  I’m not sure what I ever did with my collection but I had some decent cards like a 2nd edition Charizard, a Raichu and a ton of others that were worth a little money at the time.  However, much like the Game Boy games, when they started introducing hundreds of new Pokemon, I game up on the card game as well.  Oddly, I never played with the cards but I did play the Game Boy version of the card game.  Anyway, for fans of both the Pokemon card game and beer, I think I have found a table you will love!

This awesome Pokemon card game beer pong table was created by Tom Sejkora.  As for how this table was built, the cards were glued on to the table (the center ones made to look like a Pokeball) and then it was covered with a few coats of polyurethane.  After that, an acrylic sheet was glued on top of the cards with epoxy while silicone and electrical tape were used to waterproof it (probably an important thing for a beer pong table).  The end result is a table big enough for a pyramid of 15 cups on each side.

While I am a big fan of mint ice cream, I don’t recall having ever had a mint cookie before.  However, I’m sure it is just as tasty as the ice cream, especially if it looks as awesome as these fantastic Super Mario warp pipe mint cookies!  I have posted a ton of delicious Super Mario goodies over the years from wedding cakes to cupcakes and while those usually take the cake, I think its about time I finally post about some Super Mario Bros inspired cookies as well!

Chris-Rachael Oseland from Kitchen Overlord shared these delicious looking mint warp pipe cookies with Mario popping out of them which were made by Jennifer Imhoff-Dousharm.  You can find the recipe and baking instructions over at Kitchen Overlord.  However, if you want the cookie cutter that she used for these, you can pick that up over at WarpZonePrints for $5.50.

I’ve never heard of WarpZonePrints until now but they have the most epic collection of cookie cutters I have ever seen!  Whether you are looking for Super Mario cookie cutters or Doctor Who cookie cutters among others, they have them!  The next time I want to make some geeky cookies, this is where I will be buying my cookie cutters!

If I had every coffee table I wanted, I would have no room for anything else in my house but coffee tables.  With all of the amazing coffee tables I have posted in the past like the Steampunk NES controller coffee table, the Star Wars X-Wing coffee table, the floppy disk coffee table and about a dozen others (search for coffee tables in the search on the right to see them all), it wouldn’t be hard to fill up my small house with geeky coffee tables if I had the money.  Well, now I can add yet another coffee table to the list of coffee tables I wish I had with this coffee table made to look like a giant PlayStation Dualshock controller.

This awesome PlayStation controller coffee table was created by a guy named Mark M. who made it for a school project.  It took him 20 weeks to make it and it is made out of plywood, MDF (medium-density fiberboard), veneer and obviously glass.  Here are some details from Mark about this amazing PlayStation controller coffee table…

I made the Playstation controller coffee table for my year 12 major work, as an Industrial Technology project. I made the whole controller out of Plywood, MDF and Veneer on Veneer. I used the MDF for the R and L legs and the Veneer on Veneer for the 2 analogue joysticks as the 6mm Bendy Plywood wouldn’t bend around such a small diameter. To bend around the Handles I used 6mm Bendy Plywood. To give the finish of the playstation controller coffee table I used polyurethane full gloss finish. I used White gloss for the whole controller and the Black gloss for the Buttons.
