Its that time of year again where your feet will likely be cold for at least the next few months and the best way to remedy that problem is with a pair of slippers.  I wear slippers all year around which is why I go through about a pair a year and these Tribble slippers reminded me that it is time for a new pair!  If you are a Star Trek fan and in need of a new pair of slippers, I have a feeling you will be buying a pair of these!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these Star Trek Tribble slippers that purr for just $24.99.  With every step you take, these Tribble slippers make the iconic Tribble purring sound and the batteries are included (which is a very good thing because I wouldn’t have a clue where to get 3 LR44 batteries).

Keep in mind that even if you aren’t a Star Trek fan yourself, Christmas is just a few weeks away and these would make a fantastic Christmas present!

Although I have yet to watch the original show, I am a huge fan of the modern Battlestar Galactica series.  With Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome having released its first episode on Friday (although I have yet to watch it so please don’t spoil it in the comments), I figured it would be fitting to post this awesome Battlestar Galactica cake!

Not too long ago, I posted a really cool looking Battlestar Galactica emblem cake (which is my favorite BSG cake), but if you are looking for a cake of the actual ship, then I have found the cake you are looking for!  This isn’t as detailed of a Battlestar Galactica cake as the BSG wedding cake I have posted in the past, but this BSG cake has a nice charm to it.  I think the coloring on it makes it a more appealing cake than the wedding cake.

The awesome bakers at Pink Cake Box are the ones that created this amazing Battlestar Galactica cake which is a a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing.  It sounds delicious!

If past posts on here are any indication, there are few things more special than when a geek gets in touch with their romantic side and does something special to propose to that special someone in their life.  While I enjoy the geeky proposal videos that are sure to bring a tear to anybody’s eye, I find that I am usually more interested in the associated jewelry or its box.

In the past, I have posted some cool science fiction inspired engagement rings including a Stargate engagement ring and a TARDIS engagement ring, but nothing from the world of Star Wars.

In this particular case, one Star Wars fans proposed to his girlfriend with an amazing custom R2-D2 engagement ring!

Joe proposed to his girlfriend Emily with this amazing R2-D2 engagement ring designed by Paul Mitchell Design and made by CustomMade.  For more pictures of the initial design, the proposal story and the accompanying video, hit the source link below (I especially recommend it if you are a fan of the Peanuts cartoon but I won’t spoil the surprise).

Although I would never turn away a cupcake no matter how plain it looked, I always appreciate when the cupcake maker goes the extra mile and does something amazing with it rather than just swirls some frosting on top and calls it good.  I especially love when they give the cupcakes a nice Doctor Who flare!

In the past, I have posted some cute Dalek cupcakes, but they aren’t half as amazing as these Doctor Who cupcakes!

The awesome folks at Nerdache Cakes did an incredible job with these Doctor Who inspired cupcakes featuring half a TARDIS and the 11th Doctor’s fez, bow tie and jacket.  These are by far the most detailed Doctor Who cupcakes I have ever seen and might just be the coolest cupcakes ever made!  They look way too good to eat!

If there is one thing that I wish was bigger on the inside than on the outside, it would be my refrigerator.  It seems like even when the fridge is full of stuff, there is never anything in it that I want to eat at the time.  This is why I think a TARDIS refrigerator would be the best idea for a fridge ever!  Well, even though it may not be bigger on the inside, somebody still turned their Fridge into the TARDIS!

Sadly, I don’t know who the awesome Doctor Who fan is that turned their refrigerator into a TARDIS fridge (if you know who made this, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve), but I would say they are one awesome Whovian!

Too bad I don’t have a fridge with this door configuration or I would consider doing the same thing to mine.

Epic Chewbacca Cake [pic]

If you use the search on the right and look for Star Wars cakes, you will quickly realize that they seem to be about a dime a dozen these days.  I can’t even recall all of the Millennium Falcon cakes and Death Star cakes I have posted because there have been so many.  However, what there haven’t been many of (if any) are Chewbacca cakes!

This stunning Chewbacca cake was created by the amazing cake makers at Crazy Cakes.  Their slogan seems to be “art you can eat” and I would definitely consider this Chewbacca cake to be a work of art!  Between the beautiful coloring and the attention to detail on things like the mouth and eyes, this is easily one of the best cakes I have ever seen!

I know this is art you can eat, but I think I would rather appreciate it as art rather than food because I would hate to eat something this amazing because that would mean it wouldn’t be around anymore.
