Nerdy Candles: Tryin’ to Catch Me Lightin’ Nerdy
July 20th, 2013
If there’s one thing geeks love as much as video games, it’s setting things on fire. And while these nerdy candles won’t give off the kind of a lightshow you might get from fireworks, they’re a nice way to bring a little mood lighting to your nerdy pad.
Rox and Tom over at Frostbeard Studio came up with this handmade line of candles inspired by games, movies and comics from geek culture. Each candle is made from clean-burning soy, and scented with pleasant aromas like apple clover, cedar mint, rosemary, pineapple sage, or other welcoming, non-granny scents. The line of candles includes simple jars in color and scent themes like Zelda Potions, Adventure Time, Doctor Who and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
They’ve also got a “Level Two” line of candles with little nerdy ceramic sculptures hiding inside the jars, including Han Solo, a Baby Metroid, dinosaur bones or Cthulhu among other things. Oh, and Han Solo is “carbonite” scented – which is designed to smell cool, clean and metallic. Sounds about right to me.
Or you can level up to one of their nifty handmade ceramic candles in the shape of a Poké Ball, Bob-omb or a Piranha Plant. Bob-omb has a slightly smoky scent, and the Piranha Plant smells like clover and aloe. You can choose from Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle or Pikachu scents for the Poké Ball. Gotta smell ‘em all!
Head on over to Kickstarter now to order your Nerdy Candles now. Prices for the candles range from $15(USD) for the “Level One” designs, $30 for the “Level Two,” and $50 for the “Level Three” versions. There are also other special rewards for higher pledges.
