I have posted a ton of awesome fingernail art on Global Geek News in the past such as the amazing Dark Knight Rises fingernail art and some fantastic Super Mario Bros fingernail art.  However, it wasn’t until I saw these Futurama fingers that I asked myself, why not Zoidberg?  So, here is some awesome Zoidberg fingernail art!

Apparently Reddit user arface is the person sporting this rather fantastic Zoidberg fingernail art.  However the question I really have is not ‘why not Zoidberg?’ but rather how do you get your fingers to line up like that?!  Maybe my hand just isn’t flexible enough but it just doesn’t even seem possible for the thumb and middle finger to line up like that.  And now I have a hand cramp.

Although the original Star Trek was never my favorite (DS9 is for those who are new to Global Geek News), I still enjoy seeing amazing cakes from all of the different Star Trek series.  Even if TOS isn’t my favorite, I still thought these amazing Spock and Sulu cakes were so well done there was no way I couldn’t post them!

These stellar Sulu and Spock Star Trek cakes were made by the clearly talented cake makers at KupKake Tree.  The lifelike detail on these cakes is quite impressive!  The one thing that does feel a little weird is the Starfleet insignia on their uniforms as I think they look a bit like fortune cookies.  Even if it does feel a bit weird, I think that just adds to the charm of these amazing cakes!

If you are interested in more Star Trek cake action, check out the Star Trek TOS bridge cake I posted last year.

If you go to sci-fi conventions like Comic-Con a lot, you know its pretty common to see people cosplaying as Daleks (it seems to mostly be women cosplaying as them for some reason), but never any Dalek’s cosplaying as people.  Well, apparently somebody decided to change that and make a Dalek dress up like the 4th Doctor.

Sadly, I have no idea who this Dalek belongs to (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit for this awesome cosplay idea) but I am very jealous as I would love to have my own Dalek too.

I am also curious to know where this picture was taken.  I presume it was at some convention judging by the guy in the background wearing a cape but I have no idea which convention it would be.

Star Trek fans will certainly be familiar with the Klingon slogan “Today is a good day to die!” and there is a pretty good chance that they will want this awesome shirt too!

The awesome people over at TShirtLaundry are selling this great Klingon “A good day to die” t-shirt for just $18.  In case you find the font a bit too hard to read (it isn’t the ideal font), it says “Perhaps it is a good day to die!!!”  As a huge Star Trek fan and Klingon lover, I will probably order this shirt as soon as I finish writing this post.  If there is one shirt that I need but don’t have, it is a Klingon shirt!

If you aren’t interested in living long and prospering, perhaps today is a good day to die (and buy this shirt)!

Over the past week or so, a few images have been released showing some Cybermen marching around the Doctor Who set for an episode set to air next year.  Well, apparently one Iron Man fan decided to take one of those images and work their photoshop magic on it to turn a Cyberman into an Iron Man version of the Cybermen.  Very clever!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who is the geeky person is that made this Doctor Who / Iron Man mash-up (if you know who they are, let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit), but they did a fantastic job with this picture!  If I had any cosplay making skills, I would love to sport some Iron Cyberman cosplay at some sci-fi conventions next year.

One of the things that would scare me about hanging out with Darth Vader would be the possibility of getting choked to death just because you managed to piss him off.  There are a lot of ways I wouldn’t mind dying, but being coked with the Force is not on that list.

Well, for the Star Wars fans out there that don’t mind a little choking humor, I think you will love this awesome Darth Vader shirt!

The geektastic folks over at SuperHeroStuff are selling this Darth Vader choking hazard t-shirt for $19.99.  The best part is you can save 13% with the coupon code “SUPHERO13″ which is good until 11/30/12.  If you are a big Darth Vader fan like I am, that is a tough deal to beat!  Don’t forget, Christmas is coming so even if you don’t buy this for yourself, perhaps there is a loved one that would love to get it this holiday season!
