I don’t think it was until I turned Global Geek News into a geek culture blog and started to take it seriously that I really ever heard of steampunk.  I’ve never really been one to care anything about style but I have come to really love the style of steampunk.  Speaking of steampunk, I was recently contacted by a couple that makes some great steampunkesque artwork who wondered if I would be interested in posting about one of their creations and I said sure!

CJ and Jess Crawford are the people behind Twisted Metal Dragon Creations which creates all kinds of cool steampunkesque style art/sculptures our of recycled metal scraps.  Below is a cool bike that they made which I think is perhaps my favorite piece of their artwork.

If you want to see more of their work, you can check them out over at Twisted Metal Dragon Creations or you can even buy some of the stuff over at their Etsy store.

I have posted some pretty cool Star Wars papercraft things in the past such as the papercraft X-Wing fighter made out of a Star Wars book and a rather religious looking papercraft Darth Vader, but I have never seen any papercraft creation quite this small before.  To say that I am blown away by the amount of detail that they achieved in just a half an inch would be a huge understatement.

This incredible 1/2″ papercraft Millennium Falcon was created by David Canavese of OtherLifeArt.  I have serious doubts that there is anybody out there who can do better than this when it comes to making super small papercraft so for that reason, I am going to declare David the god of papercraft.

Apparently this took him about eight hours to make although how he made something that looks that good, I haven’t the slightest clue.  I wish I had the skills and patience to make something like this!

I love wearing shirts that combine multiple geeky obsessions into one cool design.  For example, I have a shirt that combines Donkey Kong with Star Wars and another shirt that combines Super Mario with a Dalek from Doctor Who.  Well, it looks like I have found another awesome geeky mash-up shirt that I will have to add to my collection which I think you guys will love too.

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this Legend of Jedi shirt for just $11 today only!  It combines the Legend of Zelda with Star Wars.

I love how this shirt turns Link into Luke Skywalker and the annoying Navi into R2-D2.  However, the best part is the text at the bottom saying the Triforce is strong with this one.  Yep, this is definitely going to be a shirt I have to have.

If you agree that this shirt design is cool, make sure you get it now before it is gone because if you wait until tomorrow, it will be too late!

While I admit that balloon animals can be really cool, especially the ones i have posted in the past like the epic Master Chief balloon animal I posted a long time ago or the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon animal.  However, it is not often that I will see one in person because where there are balloon animals, there are usually clowns and since clowns freak me out, I usually try to keep my distance.  However, if I could have just the balloon animal and no clown, that would be awesome!

Well, speaking of a cool balloon animal and no clowns, Doctor Who fans will love this amazing Dalek balloon costume one woman made.  Patricia Balloona made this fantastic Dalek balloon costume for what I am guessing is some sort of convention.  I wish I had the great balloon manipulating skills like she does!

When my birthday rolls around, my mom always makes me a jello cake which is my favorite kind of cake (besides cheesecake).  However, with a cake like that, you can’t really do much of anything fancy with it which is why I tend to be a bit jealous of the cakes that many kids get for their birthdays.  In this particular case, one mom made an incredible Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield cake for her son’s 18th birthday.

Reddit user Riorus’ mom is the person that made this Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield cake that I would say looks way too cool to eat!

If somebody was to offer me a cake like this, I would be very torn.  On one hand, I would give anything to have a cool Legend of Zelda cake like this, but on the other hand, I would hate to eat something that looks this amazing.  Would you eat something that looks this good?  Let us know in the comments below!

Like many geeks, I have a fascination with all things science related.  Whether it is how computers work or how quantum mechanics works, my favorite way to spend my free time is by keeping up with the latest advancements in science.  Perhaps in another universe where I don’t suck at math, I am probably a scientist of some sort.  Anyway, for the science loving geeks out there, I found a shirt that I am pretty sure you are going to love.

The science geeks over at ThinkGeek are selling this ‘Science: It’s Gotten Us This Far’ t-shirt for $17.99 – $19.99 (depending on the size).  And for the science loving ladies out there, there is also a babydoll tee version for $20.99.

Being the science lover that I am, I can’t see any way that I could possibly pass up such an awesome shirt.  If you agree and order one of these shirts, let me know in the comments below!  I am curious to know how many science loving readers we have!  Also, using one of the links above helps support Global Geek News so if you love science and us, support us by ordering one or more of these shirts!
