Is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo this year’s Black Swan? Last year, the gorgeous ballet costumes of Darren Aronofsky’s launched a thousand glossy fashion spreads and dance-inspired outfits; this year, it’s David Fincher’s crime thriller that seems to inspiring trends. Star Rooney Mara recently appeared on the cover of Vogue in a (no doubt insanely expensive) Ralph Lauren dress with a dragon design embroidered on the back, and now retail chain H&M is getting in on the Lisbeth Salander action as well.
The Swedish clothing company has teamed with Dragon Tattoo costume designer Trish Summerville for an upcoming line of pieces inspired by the character, such as beat up jeans, leather jackets, and defiantly slouchy hoodies. (You’ll presumably have to get the tattoos, piercings, and unflattering haircuts elsewhere.) More details, including a photo and video of the collection, after the jump.

Your stereotypical Star Wars fanatic may not be known for his fashion sense, but in the real world, there are plenty of would-be Jedis who want to look stylish while showing off their geek pride. LucasFilm and Adidas Originals have collaborated in the past to create Star Wars-inspired gear, and their geek-chic partnership continues with a brand-new fall/winter 2011 collection. This time around, the team turned to the ice planet Hoth to create cold weather-appropriate shoes and jackets for the upcoming seasons. Flip through the lookbook after the jump.

We all have our collections. For me it’s pop culture themed art prints, for Quentin Tarantino it’s film prints and for John Lasseter it’s Hawaiian prints. On shirts. We’ve all seen the Pixar Creative Chief do interviews in what has become his patented Hawaiian shirt and it seems like he’s always wearing a new one. He probably is. The San Francisco Chronicle recently did an interview with Lasseter about Cars 2 and he was gracious enough to give a tour of his house, which included his closet and 374 Hawaiian shirts, all of which are in the current rotation. That’s more shirts than are days of the year. But that’s not even half of it. Read More »

Today’s t-shirt design of the day over at TeeFury is a Star Wars/Ghostbusters mash-up which features Admiral Ackbar from Return of the Jedi in a Ghostbuster’s uniform holding up a ghost trap (get it? just like Ackbar’s famous line… yeah…). As with all of Teefury’s tees, the shirt is available for only $9 plus shipping, but will only be available today (January 18th 2011) and today ONLY. So act fast.
It feels like ages since we’ve highlighted Lost or Big Lebowski t-shirts here on the site. It’s all Star Wars posters and Tron toys as of late. Thankfully, that’s all about to change. Two limited edition t-shirts are on sale today only, Tuesday January 4. Teefury is allowing us to go back to our roots with a hilarious Lost parody shirt called “Rockem Sockem Candidates” by Michael Myers Jr. while RIPT has a beautiful rendition of everyone’s favorite pedophile bowler, “The Jesus” by Tom Ledin. After the break, check out full images of both and links to buy them. Read More »
There are some geek mementos we know we’ll never own. An X-Wing fighter, Iron Man’s suit, Batman’s utility belt, a TRON light cycle, things like that. Well cross another one off your list. A YouTube user by the name of guinness0507, who runs a paint company called Paint With Pearl, has figured out a way to make a real-life, working Rorschach mask. It’s not as responsive as the CGI one that Jackie Earle Haley had in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen, but it’s pretty awesome none the less. Check out the video after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
TeeFury’s t-shirt of the day is a Star Wars/Wizard of Oz mash-up designed by Denism79 and titled “Oz Wars”. You might remember that last week it was announced that Mike Johnson (co-director of the 2005 film Corpse Bride) had signed on to direct the CG/Stop-Motion hybrid feature film Oz Wars. For the story I used an image that re-imagined the Wizard of Oz characters as members of the Rebel Alliance. This design goes off of the same premise, and even features the same title (coincidence? I think not!). The t-shirt is available for only $9 plus shipping, and will only be available today (and today only).
