Scarves are meant to be worn so you can keep your neck warm and comfy when the elements are being particularly harsh. But aside from their functional purposes, they’re also great for making fashion statements whenever you want to.
Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, has been around for centuries. I’ve always found it pretty cool, considering how you can turn a sheet of paper into absolutely anything you want to with a few folds and tucks here and there.
Stories are more than just mere words on paper. They have the power to carry you off to faraway lands while making you care for characters as if they were your friends in real life. Stories can also serve as your temporary escape from the real world whenever you need to take a break from real life.
Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver is pretty versatile. It can rewire an electrical control box, can open just about any door, can scan aliens and now it can also keep your neck warm when visiting cold planets.
Lugging around your camera to take photos can be tiresome, especially if it’s a DSLR, which is why I like the idea of this scarf camera strap combination. The best part is that you can DIY, however you’ll need to be able to sew and find the right components to make this work and not end up with your precious camera on the ground.
With winter around the corner, I could use a new scarf. But I’m not sure I’m confident enough in my own masculinity to walk around wearing this crocheted Super Mario Bros. Piranha Plant scarf around my neck.
Gege Crochet loves scarves. I think “scarves” is a weird word. Fortunately Gege’s scarves are anything but weird, like this nice Princess Toadstool scarf.
She said that she made this scarf to complement a Mario scarf that she also made.
Scarves are pretty popular as the geekier crafts go, with everything from the real Punch-Out!! (in the Mike Tyson days) to Space Invaders getting the wintry neckwear treatment. But few examples can match both the artistry and dedication that went into creating this Guitar Hero scarf.
Even though we’re a couple of days into Spring, for so many of us in Northern climates, it still feels like the dead of Winter. It’s not too late to keep yourself toasty with one of these warm and wooly Space Invaders scarves.
One of the greatest boxing games of all time has been immortalized in wearable form. This oh-so-awesome handknit scarf features the fighters from the NES classic Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!
Created by El Paso crafter Beatboxtaun, the scarf features the likenesses of two of the game’s pixelated pugilists.
I thought that the Pac-Man hoodie would be the most outlandish article of clothing I’d write about this week, but leave it to me to always go just one better. So without further ado, I proudly present the LED Pimp Coat…
The “deluxe” color-changing coat is not only made of the finest polka-dotted faux fur money can buy, it’s loaded with over 400 colorful LEDs which let you change the outfit’s colors to suit your mood.
Check out this toasty Space Invaders scarf I stumbled on earlier today. The arcade-inspired wool scarf would make a great gift this holiday season for the video game fanatic on your list (assuming they’ve already got a Space Invaders sweater in the closet).
