So much glorious tentacle!


Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.

LEGO + The Lord of the Rings = Awesome

Alice Finch (creator of the LEGO Hogwarts featured here) teamed up with David Frank to create a LEGO model of Rivendell:

“the last homely house west of the mountains,” where Elrond where Elrond hosts both Bilbo and his dwarven companions in The Hobbit and Frodo and the Fellowship in The Lord of the Rings.

The Brothers Brick just unveiled official photos of this jaw-droppingly detailed model, which was made suing 200,000 LEGO bricks. They also interviewed Alice and David about their stupendous creation.

A project of this scale begins with plenty of research. In order to faithfully recreate one of Middle-Earth’s loveliest locations using tiny plastic bricks, Alice and David first studied all the relevant scenes from The Fellowship of the Ring and then painstakingly scoured BrickLink in search of custom LEGO pieces that would best suit their ambitious goal.

Visit The Brothers Brick to learn more about all of the work that went into creating this beautiful plastic love letter to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Winter isn’t just coming. For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, winter is already here. San Francisco-based artist and designer Krystal Higgins designed a fantastically geeky series of paper snowflakes based on the sigils for six of the noble houses from Game of Thrones. What’s more, she also created free downloadable patterns for each of them. They’re available now via Krystal’s website.

I wanted to express that dream, to tell a story in photographs, the fantasy of our French girl coming to New York to find her new place in the world, discovering the beauty of the city and glamour of Madison Ave, not so unlike my own experience when I came here with a suitcase full of dreams…”
