It always makes my day when Global Geek News readers send me something to post that shows off their geeky side!

In this case, GGN reader Justin Quebedeaux sent me these pictures of his awesome Legend of Zelda owl tattoo he got on his arm.  I love the look of the Hylian Crest on the chest of the owl.  The tattoo artist that inked this amazing tattoo, who you can see in the lower right image, is James Laing of Turning Point Tattoos.  I’d say he did a pretty good job!

I can’t really say I have ever been a huge fan of non-traditional shaped blankets, but next to the Legend of Zelda Ocarina blanket I posted about recently, this is one of the coolest blankets I have ever seen!  It might not be as practical as my snuggie, but what baby really needs a blanket with sleeves anyway?

Well, for those that have a love for Yoshi and are in the market for a baby blanket, Etsy seller SheriBFabulous is selling this awesome Yoshi Egg afghan blanket for $150.  This blanket is 4’x3′ so unless you are a really small person, this is probably too small for you no matter how much you may want it for yourself.

I’ve never been a big fan of the idea of wearing a ring no matter how cool they might be.  Even the idea of something like a wedding ring makes me glad I choose to stay single.  Well, for those that do like to wear rings and happen to be a big Legend of Zelda fan, I have found the ring for them!

Etsy seller Enrah is selling this awesome Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield ring for the amazingly low price of $8!  That is a pretty hard price to beat for those who like to sport some Legend of Zelda jewelry!  Personally, I will just stick with my Legend of Zelda Hylian crest hat.

I’ve largely broken my addiction to Angry Birds although I still play the occasional game however I just can’t seem to get enough Angry Birds themed food.  I’ve posted a bunch of Angry Birds cakes in the past including a playable Angry Birds cake but I am pretty sure this is the first Angry Birds cupcake tower I have ever posted (I can’t be sure as I really don’t remember all of the near 2000 posts I have written on GGN).

This spectacular looking Angry Birds cupcake tower was created by Jodi Miller.  If I ever need some cupcakes made, I know who to go to because this are some of the most amazingly detailed cupcakes I have ever seen!

Back in November, I posted an old NES console that had been turned into a guitar completely expecting to never see anything like that again.  Well, I am very happy to be wrong!

Apparently, a really cool computer engineer by the name of Jeri Ellsworth took an old Commodore 64 and turned it into an electric bass guitar.  She was seen skating around at Maker Faire in California (which took place this past weekend) while wearing this awesome Commodore 64 bass.  Of all the custom guitars I have posted on here, this is one of my favorites!  Awesome job Jeri!

I’ve never tried any of the LEGO video games whether they are Star Wars or something else.  However, I can’t seem to get enough of the awesome LEGO video game inspired stuff that people create.  In this case, a LEGO Stormtrooper cake!

This awesome LEGO Star Wars inspired Stormtrooper cake was created by Dazey Cakes.  For those that are interested in the yummy details, the arms are made of Rice Krispies Treats and legs and body are made of cake.  Of course the entire thing is covered in fondant which I suspect was the only non-yummy part of the cake.  Fondant makes for a great looking cake but I have never had any fondant that I would call delicious.
