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!

If you have any tattoos or other geeky things you would like us to showcase, hit us up through the contact page at the link at the top of the page!

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 done the Renaissance fair thing but lately I have felt like it would be a cool thing to check out at some point.  I would definitely be more inclined to go if the women were dressed like R2-D2!

I don’t know who this woman is, but anybody who is willing to dress up like R2-D2 while still keeping with the Renaissance look gets a major thumbs up in my book!  This makes me curious what other Star Wars characters one could dress up as while still looking like you belong at a Renaissance fair?  Share your ideas in the comments below!

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’m not exactly sure where I have put them, but like most geeks, I still have a box filled with floppy disks laying around somewhere.  Well, Instructables user Jetpack5 decided to give some of those old floppies some new life, as Star Wars ships!

You can find the how-to guide for turning old floppies (and some rubber bands) into Star Wars ships over at Instructables which shows you how to make the Death Star, Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing fighter.  For those that have a lot of floppies laying around, I suspect you could probably make a few bucks by making a bunch of these and putting them on Etsy.

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!
