Other than perhaps the Batman franchise, I never really got into the world of comic books and superheroes, although I will admit to having seen the first Iron Man movies (which I enjoyed).

Well, one of the people that is far more obsessed with superheroes than I am, decided to make this fantastic Iron Lantern suit.  This is the perfect combination of Iron Man and Green Lantern and is easily some of the most impressive cosplay I have ever seen.  It almost makes me want to run to the comic book store right now (although I don’t think there are any in this city)!

I’m honestly not one for getting people cards (for their birthday, Christmas, ect) or for receiving them.  I find them to be a waste of money for something that will just get tossed in the trash and a waste of trees (not to mention a waste of time trying to find the perfect card).

Well, this is probably the first birthday card I have ever seen that almost makes me change my mind about my dislike of the tradition.  This birthday card uses the popular Futurama “Shut Up and Take My Money” meme and marries it almost perfectly with the idea of giving people money inside of a birthday card.  I officially declare this the best birthday card of all time since it gets straight to the point with a great meme.

I’ve always been of the opinion that men shouldn’t wear earrings but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want this pair of Doctor Who inspired 3D TARDIS earrings.  These are some of the coolest earrings I have ever seen!

For the earring wearing Doctor Who fans out there (and I know there are many of them who read Global Geek News), these 3D TARDIS earrings can be yours assuming you are aren’t in a hurry to get them (they are shipped from the Netherlands).  Etsy seller emmivisser is selling these awesome Doctor Who 3D TARDIS earrings for $15.95 (plus shipping) which seems like a great price for earrings this awesome!  However, be prepared to wait up to a month to get them depending on where you live.

I’m not a wine person (I don’t drink alcohol period), but that doesn’t stop me from wanting these awesome Super Mario Bros inspired piranha plant wine glasses.  Since the Mario games have been such a huge part of my life, it would be strange if I didn’t want these glasses!

Well, for the Super Mario Bros loving wine drinkers out there, you are in luck because you can actually buy these piranha plant wine glasses!  Etsy seller BasementInvaders is selling this set of two piranha plant wine glasses for $30.  That seems like a pretty reasonable price to me but if you decide to buy these glasses, I would recommend contacting the seller first because the one on the left looks kind of tilted (but hopefully it is just an issue with how the picture was taken).

For whatever reason, I have never really got into the the whole MechWarrior series of games, but apparently this cat has!

This cat, which I think I will call Grumpy  just based on the expression on its face, seems to enjoy laying on its awesome cardboard MechWarrior.  I don’t know who built this awesome MechWarrior out of cardboard but it is quite impressive!  I can’t even imagine how much work went into making that cardboard MechWarrior!  I hope this cat appreciates just how awesome their owner is!

I’ve posted some very impressive paper snowflakes on here in the past (just search ‘paper snowflakes’ in the search on the right to see them all), but as impressive as some of them were, they can’t hold a candle to these absolutely mind blowing Doctor Who paper snowflakes.

Sadly, I don’t know who created these amazing Doctor Who snowflakes, but apparently they were given away as part of some kind of Doctor Who crafts contest a few weeks ago.

I honestly am not sure which one is my favorite because they are all so impressive!  The TARDIS and Dalek snowflake is pretty good, but so is the Cyberman paper snowflake and even the Ood paper snowflake!  And don’t forget the Pandorica paper snowflake which is quite impressive too!  I want them all!
