Birties Bowties Allow You to Wear Your Favorite Pop Culture Mementos Around Your Neck

Nothing says “classy” like a bow tie and now you can show off your passions and your classiness at the same time. Birties Bowties are the passion project of Omarseeto, which started off as a hobby and spread to the masses. Looking to bring some fun and lighten up the stressful, mundane vibe of his job as a bank teller, Omarseeto began using his design skills to dazzle his team and customers (not to mention fill the hours he spent staring off into the abyss). Screen printing his favorite bands, video games, art pieces, and pop culture icons onto bow ties, he was standing out and making people smile. People began asking him to create ties of their favorite bands and such, and he was loving it.

A Portrait of Albert Einstein Made From 2200 Dice

A couple years ago, Redditor Joshie196 created a computer program that allowed him to turn any image into a dice mosaic. Combining his project with Einstein’s famous quote, “As I have said so many times, God doesn’t play dice with the world,” he turned 2200 dice into the face of this great scientist. The finished product weighs nearly 25lbs. He plans on inscribing Einsteins’ quote on the bottom of the frame and is willing to sell the work if the price is right. It cost over $350 to make and shipping would not be cheap due to its heavy weight.

Iconic Images Painted With Coffee by Maria A. Aristidou

We’ve featured coffee stain portraits done in a pointillist style with the bottom of a mug by Red Hong Yi, and now we are proud to present this water color style version by Maria A Aristidou. The UK artist creates a palette of shades with different brews, then dips her brush in her cups of Joe to paint coffee stain reproductions of pop culture icons. From Disney characters to The Girl With A Pearl Earring to famous celebrities, she shows her pop culture relevance and love for java.

3D Printed Sculptures of Star Wars Characters With Buddha Bellies Are the Perfect Desk Accessory

With big round bellies that remind us to let go of attachment and enjoy life, Buddha statues get a pop culture make over. Artist Chris Milnes had the brilliant idea of creating 3D printed statues that put a new twist on the Buddha statue that adorns so many fireplaces, desks, and gardens throughout the world. He replaced the Buddha’s head with each of your favorite Star Wars heroes and villains. The statues are available for purchase in his Etsy shop and come in 3 different sizes. They come signed and dated. What could be a better reminder to live your life than a Yoda/Buddha mash-up on your nightstand?

That’s Amore! Famous Pop-Culture Couples Illustrated by Ale Giorgini

Whether it’s an upside down Spiderman kiss planted on Mary Jane Watson, or a warm nuzzle from Snoopy for Charlie Brown, it’s not hard to be nostalgic about pop-culture icons – but Italian illustrator Ale Giorgini makes it even easier. His brand of Jetson’s-esq line-work give any character or scene a delightfully retro flavor, and his new series ‘That’s Amore!’ is a tasty example.

The Back Side of Famous Album Covers

Harvezt has been imagining what it looked like from the reverse side of many famous album covers, giving us a new angle on what was really going down during their creation. Was that really a hill on the cover of “The Yellow Submarine”? Was the baby on Nirvana’s “Nevermind” really just going for the bucks?

How Perfect are these Iconic Bands Made With LEGOs?

For LEGO and music lovers, these images are a match made in… well, LEGO actually. Malaysian Adly Syairi Ramly has been building iconic bands out of tiny LEGO figures – and the results are surprisingly recognizable. Yes, the Beatles rendition above is easy to identify, but just check out how pitch-perfect he’s gotten less obvious bands like Pearl Jam and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. I almost wish the titles weren’t there so we could play ‘guess the band’.

The Golden Girls as Legos: A Must Have Collectors Edition for Every GG Fan

The Golden Girls Legos 1

Although The Golden Girls finished its last episode in 1992, it stays in our hearts forever and syndication has helped keep the younger generations in the loop on the 4 sassiest old ladies in sitcom history. For many of us who were alive for the original airing, it was during our youth, when playing with toys was our primary concern. Brent Benedetti brings two wonderful memories from that era together in this glorious Lego set of Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, and Sophia Petrillo. The whole limited edition set can be yours if you check out his Etsy page. Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty will look down from heaven with smiles on their faces as you proudly display your new Lego set. With Christmas just around the corner, I can think of nothing better to get that die hard Golden Girls fan who has everything!

Amazing Halloween Costumes for Kids Based on Your Favorite Movies & TV Shows

Kids Halloween Costumes- 1 Ghostbusters

Trick or treat! Although it’s probably past the time when you would be deciding what to dress your kids up as for Halloween, we thought it might brighten your day to see some hilarious kids costumes. Although some of the characters they portray are not kid-friendly (I would hope no child has seen Silence of the Lambs or Breaking Bad) and likely based more on their parents’ favorite movies and television shows, it’s pretty entertaining to see children in these roles. If I saw trick-or-treaters dressed in some of these costumes I might just have to pour my whole bowl of candy into their bag!

LEGO Brick “Sketches” of Your Favorite Pop Culture Icons

1 Chris McVeigh

A self-declared “professional geek”, Chris McVeigh never stopped playing with toys. He uses LEGOS in conjunction with his creative eye and photography skills to make fun, colorful “sketches” of some of the best pop culture characters of all time. In this series of LEGO Brick Sketches, McVeigh challenges himself to stick to a 12″x16″ brick canvas, which is a similar size to some of his friends’ miniature marker sketches. His first one was Wolverine and after receiving a very positive response from his Instagram and Facebook fans, he decided to keep going. While the LEGO creations are obviously not real sketches, McVeigh plays up this theme perfectly with little LEGO markers in the correct colors next to each portrait.
