Hellgirl Stained Glass Window Is a Hell of a Piece of Art

I was a big fan of the original Hellboy movies with Ron Perlman as our cigar-chomping red hero. But as much as I enjoyed that series, I’ve never delved deep into the comics, so I’m not too familiar with Hellgirl. That said, now that I’ve seen this stained glass image of her, I’m intrigued.

This amazing work of stained glass art was handmade by Art Brothers Glass, in the classic Tiffany style. And no, they’re not talking about the 1980s Mall-pop singer. This intricate piece measures a whopping 41.3″ x 38.6″, and was made using 1470 individual pieces of glass.

This piece was created as a commission work for a Hellgirl fan in Poland, but Art Brothers would be happy to make you a custom piece like it. Something this big and intricate will set you back as much as $10,000, but there are lots of smaller and less complex stained glass portraits in their Etsy shop, with prices starting as low as $240. They also make stained glass pins in a wide variety of designs, including a number of pop culture characters.

Stained Glass TIE Fighter Lamp: The Empire Lights Up

One of the more satisfying sights in the original Star Wars trilogy was watching Imperial TIE fighters get blown to smithereens by the Rebellion. But this awesome stained glass TIE fighter lamp is one that I’d never want to see in pieces.

This beautiful work of Star Wars fan art was handmade by Russian glass studio V&G Fantasy. It looks just like the TIE fighters flown by the empire, with those iconic flat wings, and round cockpit at its center. The pendant-style ceiling lamp is made from glass steel, and copper, and looks like it’s ready to do battle with some X-Wing lamps if they existed. I particularly love the blue glow that emanates from its interior. All it needs is some kind of laser cannons and it would be perfect. Maybe you could rig some laser pointers up to it for added effect.

The finished piece measures about 18.8″ x 10″ x 8.8″, and is designed to run on a 220-volt power source, so you might need to buy a converter if you plan on using it here in the States. All this awesomeness doesn’t come cheap though, with this one-of-a-kind TIE fighter lamp selling for $750 over on Etsy. Of course, if you work for the Empire, you probably have a pretty good sized expense account for this kind of thing.

Yoshi & Toad Stained Glass Mosaic: The Church of the Mushroom Kingdom

I don’t spend much time in church, but if they had videogames there, I might show up more often. I like to think that if religious institutions had an arcade, we’d all be spending more time bending the knee to the gods of gaming. And if there were a videogame church, it would feature stained glass images like this one surrounding the house of worship.

 

This fun and artful 12″ x 6″ stained glass mosaic features a scene of Yoshi going for a ride in his Super Mario Kart racer, with Toad hanging out in the back. They’d better watch out though, because somebody has tossed one of those spiny Koopa shells onto the road to pop their tires and spin their kart.

This neat piece of original fan art was created by Wildnine Studios, who makes all kinds of cool and geeky stained glass mosaics, like this awesome Mario Power-up tissue box. The Yoshi and Toad scene is going for $295 over on Etsy.

 

Vault Boy Stained Glass Levels up Your Window

Before you enter the great wasteland to do battle, you’ll want to check in with Vault Boy and your Pip-Boy 3000 to make sure your stats are up to snuff. This Vault Boy stained glass window is there to offer an additional affirmation.

This handmade window is the ultimate bit of home decor for any serious Fallout fan, and features a bold and bright image of the Vault-Tec Corporation’s overwhelmingly positive mascot. Here, he’s giving you a big thumbs up before you head out and get your face eaten off by deathclaw.

So put on your power armor and head over to RubyRetroGlass’ Etsy shop, where you can grab the Vault Boy stained glass window for $247 – and before you get any funny ideas, they only accept dollars, not bottle caps.

Stained Glass Chess Set: Classy and Glassy

Chess is a thinking man’s game. It means that to play it well, you’ve got to be all intellectual and smart and stuff. Even kings play it – with real people on their lawn. You have to have a classy chess set if you want to keep up appearances. Well, this Stained Glass Chess Set is ohhhh so pretty and expensive looking. Classy as hell. And glassy as hell.


Game designer KnowNothing_JonSnoo received it as a birthday gift from his father, who is a stained glass artist. I would be too afraid that I would break it if I played a game on it’s lovely surface. Sure enough, he keeps it on a high shelf when he’s not playing with it for now, but one day it will have its own dedicated table when his sons grow up enough not to trash it.


That is one beautiful chess set.

This Stained Glass R2-D2 Lamp Shade Is a Major Award

This R2-D2 dome lampshade is beautifully done in stained glass. Turn it on and there will no longer be a Dark Side. Only Light. This is the droid lamp shade that you are looking for.

It was made by Dickie of Master Glasster (I see what you did there.) Sadly, it is not available in their shop anymore, but who knows, maybe they will make you one if you ask nicely. Or you might have to just settle for a stained glass TARDIS.

This thing looks awesome. Now I just want to see more droids as stained glass lamp shades. Like R5-D4 and BB-8.

DIY Legend of Zelda Nightlight: Fauxntom Stained Glass

Redditor BigBadBobBitchin made this beautiful The Legend of Zelda-themed nightlight as a Valentine’s Day for his girlfriend. The nightlight looks like an armory, with some of Link’s swords and shields displayed in front of a fake stained glass of the Hylian crest.

BigBadBobBitchin bought the miniature weapons at a comic convention, but he made the fake stained glass himself using plexiglass and translucent paint. He didn’t think of documenting his labor of love but as he said, you can find lots of tutorials on making fake stained glass online.
