Perhaps its because I’m not a huge coffee fan, but I have never been a big fan of coffee cups.  I guess I just prefer my cups to not have a handle.  Regardless of how I prefer my beverage containers, I can’t ignore just how awesome this crochet Portal Companion Cube coffee mug cozy is.  For the Portal fans out there that want to keep their coffee warm while making their cup look like a companion cube, Etsy seller littlepopos is selling this awesome crochet Companion Cube cozy for just $19.  The cake might be a lie, but your coffee doesn’t have to be!

I’ve never been a big pajama wearing person but that is largely due to how warm my bedroom stays at night due to all of my computers and other electronics that are running in my bedroom.  You can imagine how uncomfortably hot it gets in my room in the summer when its in the triple digits outside and I have all of stuff running in my bedroom.  Anyway, for the pajama loving women out there that are also big Battlestar Galactica fans, Her Universe is selling these awesome BSG pajama shorts and tank top for just $35!  Sorry guys, but this appears to be only for the women.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted some awesome hand-painted R2-D2 TOMS shoes and while those were impressive, I think I like these awesome hand-made R2-D2 heels a little more.  Kristen Nedopak, the same person that created that hilarious Skyrim: To Lydia With Love video a while back, is the woman that created this awesome looking R2-D2 heels!  As awesome as they look, I would be slightly concerned by what appears to be the use of glitter as glitter just makes a mess of everything and its not fun to try to clean up.  Otherwise, these are amazing!

I am ashamed to say that until I saw this sofa, I don’t believe I have ever even heard of the SEGA Master System.  I had to hit up Wikipedia just to find out about it which is something I almost never have to do.  Anyway, apparently there is at least one hardcore Master System fan around and apparently they live in France.  A French video game blogger’s wife made this amazing SEGA Master System sofa and controller pillows for him and they look amazing!  If you have any fond memories of this console or any favorite games I should know about, let me know in the comments as I am headed over to Ebay to pick up one of these systems!

Not many people may know this, but I have more than my fair share of Game Boys.  As a kid, I seemed to collect them and I still have a box of various Game Boy systems sitting in my basement that I like to open up and play on occasion assuming I have some spare AA batteries around.  However, there is one Game Boy I don’t have in my collection but would give anything to have and that would be this amazing steampunk Game boy.  I’ve seen some people do some cool customizations to their Game Boy before, but nothing like this steampunk Game Boy.  I want!

I’m always impressed when people create a spaceship from their favorite sci-fi franchise out of LEGO bricks.  Considering many builds that I have seen often take months to build, I’m not sure I would have the time or patience to do something like that.  Well, Garry King seems to be one of those people that thrives on tedious brick building as he used 6894 LEGO bricks to recreate a Cylon Basestar from Battlestar Galactica.  He has also built the Galactica itself, but I will save those pictures for another day.
