I’ve posted a lot of awesome shoes that look really cool like the Converse Super Mario Bros shoes, but since most of the shoes I have posted are Converse shoes which I am not a big fan off, these Donkey Kong Nike shoes have a major appeal to me!  Truthfully, I’m not a huge Nike fan either, but at least I like the look of their shoes more.

Anyway, these Donkey Kong Nike Dunks were created by Antony Hollingworth and there are merely a concept which means you won’t find these on store shelves.  However, I think if Nike was to run with this idea, they could sell a lot of them and perhaps even convert some people like me to their shoes (I am a New Balance person).  Sadly, I think this shoe is a dream that is probably never going to become reality.

Never in my wildest imagination would I have figured that somebody would carve up a ping pong ball to make it look like the Death Star.  I’ve seen some people do some pretty crazy things with ping pong balls like the guys on Mythbusters use them to raise a sunken boat, but I have never seen anything quite as impressive as this!

I can’t read Japanese, but apparently this awesome ping pong ball Death Star was created by some forums member known as tatumaru5963.  I don’t know how they made this, but they did an amazing job!  Even if it wasn’t the exploded version of the Death Star, the paint job is impressive enough, but to put in all of the painstaking detail of the exploded version is just crazy and completely amazing!

My birthday is just a couple days away and while I would absolutely love to have one of the giant fancy cakes that I am constantly posting on here, I would be just as happy with a relatively simple cake like this awesome Battlestar Galactica cake.  It certainly isn’t as huge and amazing as the Battlestar Galactica wedding cake I posted a while back but for a smaller cake, it is awesome!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who made this cake which features the BSG emblem, a Cylon basestar and a few Cylon raiders, but they did a great job!  I might not like the taste of fondant, but you can’t argue with how good it makes cakes look!

If you know who created this cake, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!  So say we all!

Having no desire to ever have kids, I have no plans to have a collection of diaper boxes around the house.  However, should somebody give me a bunch of diaper boxes or something (the world is filled with strange people), at least now I will know what to do with them!

Kelly McQuinlan over at Offbeat Mama built this awesome Star Wars AT-AT out of diaper boxes and explains how she did it and includes a number of pictures so you can build your own if you have a few diaper boxes laying around. I’m kind of surprised at how well this turned out although if I ever do something like this, I will probably paint it up to look like a normal AT-AT because I don’t think I could live with the idea of having a Winnie the Pooh themed AT-AT in my house.

I know that the rock and roll band KISS has a pretty hardcore following here on Earth, but until I saw this picture, I would have never guessed that they were big in a galaxy far far away as well!  I would have never thought that Yoda was a rock and roll kind of person but it seems so!

I’m not sure where this picture originated from, but the folks behind the annual Starfest Convention that takes place in Denver every year (which I almost always attend) posted this picture recently on their Facebook page.  Maybe its just me, but I think this look is actually an improvement on C-3PO although Yoda in makeup might just give me nightmares for the next week or so.

It seems I am constantly blown away by the things that people make in 3D modeling applications.  In this particular case, Whitney Brown created these amazing images (for a school assignment) of a Legend of Zelda inspired cathedral which kind of resembles the Temple of Time from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64.

This amazing work of art was created using Cinema 4D and Photoshop.  I am absolutely blown away by the incredible level of detail ranging from the pedestal the sword sits in to the windows which are beautiful.  The large Hylian Crest just feels like icing on the cake but it still feels like it belongs in this temple.

Clicking on the first image will show you what this looks like full size and in all of its glorious detail.  Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for the second picture but its still great!
