If you have ever dreamed of being a dinosaur, these inflatable costumes make it happen. The latest additions to the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom merchandise line are perhaps the coolest dinosaur costumes ever. Your dino cosplay has never been more on point.
You can choose from Blue the velociraptor, a pteranodon, and a triceratops. They do need better and less obvious eye-holes, because those face windows just ruin the illusion, but they’re still pretty cool. Each one has a pair of battery operated fans inside to keep it inflated, and because it’s hot being a dinosaur. It won’t be long before we see people doing parkour in these costumes, although it might be hard while wearing the triceratops costume.
Also, I just noticed that they just slapped the Jurassic Worlds logo on that velociraptor’s ass. That just seems wrong, like they branded the poor beast. What I’m really hoping for is that people wear these costumes and then fight in a super secret dinosaur fight club. Because I’d really like to see that. Maybe a big brawl with like 20 dinosaurs while the crowd throws giant inflatable meteors in the ring. It isn’t over until all but one is extinct.
Whether vacationing on the pleasure planet Risa, the holodeck, or a beach on Earth, these Star Trek TNG Swim Trunks are always in style. Dive into these trunks, then dive into the ocean.
ThinkGeek has offered Star Trek swimwear for the ladies for a while now, but now it’s the guys’ turn. They all have uniform designs and TNG uniform styling at the leg opening. There’s even a faux combadge on the left thigh. They may not be Starfleet regulation, but they sure look good. For those of you taking one of those Star Trek cruises, you can expect to see a lot of these this season.
They will make your away missions awesome. Which gets me thinking. If Baywatch had been about a bunch of Starfleet personnel being lifeguards on Risa (with David Hasselhoff as the Captain) I may have actually watched that show. Think of all the crazy sea-aliens they would feature every single week.
Grab a pair in blue, gold, or red over at ThinkGeek for $49.99.
Who rules the universe? You rule the universe if you’re wearing this over-the-top Avengers: Infinity War Infinity Gauntlet From New Era’s 59Fifty line. It’s Thanos’ version of galactic bling, which handily beats Earthly bling. It also can control pretty much everything.
This hat is a SuperHeroStuff exclusive and you can pre-order it for $99.99. It should be available in May. You have to be a serious fan to shell out that kind of money for a hat, even if it is super geeky and has all the infinity stones on it. Then again, this is a small price to pay for the power to turn heads and make them say, “wait, what?”. It will definitely get you noticed.
It has the Avengers logo front and center within the word war, the bill is stitched to simulate layered gauntlet plating and has runes on it, and under the bill, you’ll find an illustration of the actual infinity gauntlet. Then there’s the inner lining of the cap with six Avengers illustrations.
Now that I’ve seen this, I really hope that Thanos wears one in the movie. There’s no question that this is a hat to rule all other hats. Are you fanboy enough to wear it?
Avengers: Infinity War is hitting theaters on April 27th here in the States, so we don’t have long to wait now. To celebrate the release of this major geek milestone, UK crochet designer Liz Ward created a crocheted Infinity Gauntlet.
This allows her to rule the crafting universe with an
iron soft fist. The pattern for her universe ruling gauntlet is available to purchase from her Etsy shop if you want your own turn ruling the cosmos. Make two of these bad boys and you have yourself a great pair of winter gloves.
Of course, the problem is that now that this design is available, everyone is going to have amazing God-like powers. You know what that means. You all are going to have to battle each other like a bunch of Greek Gods for supremacy. Then us puny humans are going to pay the price just by being in the way. Thanks, Liz Ward. We really needed to have our homes destroyed by a bunch of titans fighting while wearing crocheted gloves. Thanks a lot.
If you have a bunker you’d better get in it right now, because once the movie comes out anyone wearing these gauntlets is going to get mighty riled up.
I’m really happy that April Fools Day was on a Sunday this year, so I didn’t have to look like a fool, falling for stuff all day long. Every year, people try to fool you with fake products. ThinkGeek’s lineup on April Fools Day is legendary. People still buzz about these items every year so much that some actually become real products. Such is the case with the Tentacuddle Blanket.
Yes, you can really buy this. It’s real and you can be as cozy as a Kraken, snuggled up in its green grip! It has five tentacles “each with an opening near the end to put your thumb, hand, or foot through”. Basically, you can get lost in this blanket.
Stay warm and look like a sea creature. Other’s will think there’s a Kraken on the couch, but nope, it’s just you being toasty and warm. I know that my cats would love to snuggle with me in this blanket. They would love crawling out of those holes, like cute little Kraken parasites.
You can grab one of the blankets right now for $59.99. Better get Kraken because they won’t be around forever.
Han Solo is one of the best characters in movie history. Everything about the Millennium Falcon’s Captain is iconic. He’s a scoundrel, he’s got the swagger, even his outfit kicks butt. This dude’s hair is always perfect. The way the holster and blaster hang off of his hip, that vest, those stripes on his pants… Han is the man. Now you can take a fashion cue from Han with these cool Han Solo sneakers.
Po-Zu has added a Solo-inspired sneaker to their officially licensed Star Wars shoe collection. The design keeps things simple, but the Corellian Bloodstripe along the side is stunning nonetheless. These shoes are crafted with sustainable materials and environmentally friendly production processes as well. The coconut fiber and latex memory foam insole keeps things comfortable too.
The Han Solo sneaker is available to pre-order right here for about $97 with delivery scheduled for May. That when you and your family can make jokes like, “I thought they smelled bad on the outside”.
Honestly, this is one of the cooler pairs of Star Wars themed sneakers that you can buy. Don’t miss out on these. You’ll do the Kessel Run in record time. With your feet of course.
Do you and your cat believe in conspiracy theories? Like that we never landed on the moon because Stanley Kubrick filmed the whole thing on a soundstage? Or that reptiles run our government? Hmmmm. Okay, let’s not count that second one out just yet. Anyway, if you and your feline pal believe that aliens are controlling your minds, what you need are these pre-made Tin-Foil Hats for humans and cats from Archie McPhee.
The cat one looks like a cat yarmulke from the year 3000, while the human version looks like something that the workers in the Hershey’s Kisses factory should wear. They’re designed to protect you from government mind-control, alien mind-control, and alien butt probing, to name a few of its uses. Or at least they would protect you from that stuff if they weren’t made out of mylar. Yeah, not even real tin foil. How is this supposed to stop government radio waves from making you do bad stuff?
I guess Archee McPhee is in on the conspiracy, and they don’t want you protected from the evil that is out there. I’m on to you, AM. You’re nothing but a damn company of reptiles in league with the reptile government. As long as I have aluminum foil, I’m safe from you. I can’t cook dinner because it’s all on my head, but at least I’m safe.

Some of us are old enough to remember playing the Atari 2600 when it first arrived on the scene, but even younger gamers have to appreciate the console’s sweet 1970’s wood paneling design. Now you can wear that design on a kickass hoodie.
The Atari 2600 hoodie is the latest in a line of console-based apparel from Merchoid. It joins the NES hoodie, SNES hoodie, and PlayStation hoodie. Call me a gaming nerd, but I just love how they captured the essence of the console on this hoodie. It’s just perfect. I guess this would make you the cartridge. I bet the Atari 5200 would make for a stunning looking hoodie as well.
I need this amazing hoodie in my life and so do you. The good news is that you can pre-order it from Merchoid for $59.99 with free shipping starting this May. Pre-order quantities are limited, so don’t miss your chance to actually wear an Atari 2600. This is great timing too because the highly anticipated Ataribox game console will make its debut at GDC and Atari Flashback Classics is coming to the Nintendo Switch. It looks like Atari is cool again and this makes me happy.
Most of us can’t order pizza with our shoes, but the future is coming. Soon, we will all be able to do it. Pizza Hut is bringing back its Pie Tops sneakers, which can order pizza with the press of a button. It uses a Bluetooth connection with your phone and the Pie Tops app. It goes a step further this time though. The Pie Tops II can also pause your TV when your pizza is at the front door so you don’t miss any action on screen.
They introduced their Pie Tops sneakers last year, but this is the first time they can actually be purchased. To celebrate March Madness, Pizza Hut and The Shoe Surgeon are making 50 pairs available on hbx.com on the week of March 19th.Ordering through the shoes gets you a two $5.99 two-topping medium pizza deal throughout the tournament.
More pizza-ordering shoes will come later in the year, so don’t worry if you miss out. Just follow @PizzaHut and @Hypebeast on Twitter for more details. We don’t have a price yet, but I think we all know that they will likely be super expensive. But what is money compared to the ability to order pizza and pause the TV from the comfort of your shoes?
