Back To The Future Gym Bag

Back-To-The-Future-NIKE-Gym-Bag-2017-Dave-Delisle-davesgeekyideas

This is something NIKE could throw together and sell tomorrow if they really wanted to: a gym bag based on the NIKE container from Back to the Future II, which stored the clothes Marty changed into. Just need the neon green logo and FOOTWEAR emblazoned on a round bag that has clear mesh panels on the sides.

Attack On Titan Pendant

Attack On Titan Necklace Pendant

Yesterday I posted a Zelda pendant, and in that post I mentioned my original intention was to make a design based on Attack On Titan. I’ve gotten quite a few responses asking about the discarded AoT design, so I decided to share the mock-up.

In the Zelda post I sort of implied that the 3D Maneuvering Gear would be used as the chain in some way, but I was probably a bit vague in my wording. My bad.

The reason I went with Zelda is that it would be more compact and, well, cute (I’m keeping my man card, thank-you). I felt AoT would be a bit too busy, despite the fun aspect of turning its wearer into a titan of sorts.

If this were actually made, I’d put the swords back in their sheaths to make this pendant less pointy.

Zelda Hookshot Pendant

Zelda Hookshot Necklace Jewelry

A pendant of Link with his trusty hookshot serving as a chain, what’s not to like? It’s a lot friendlier than my original idea, which was based on Attack On Titan (where you are the titan). You could probably do a standalone hookshot necklace, but the addition of the character truly completes this design. 

Lord Of The Rings Jewelry Box

LOTR jewelry box design by Dave Delisle

This is a jewelry box that features a built-in Ring of Power which illuminates when the box is open, sort of like a fridge light. It sits on a perch (which houses the LEDs and batteries), looking over a reservoir for other jewelry.

LED T-Shirt Designs

Animated LED T-Shirts

A few years ago I scoffed at the idea of embedding LED lights into a T-shirt. Tacky was the word that came to mind. But then Tony Stark made it look cool, so now you can buy T-Shirts that mimic the appearance of an Arc Reactor beneath the surface of the shirt.

Geek Bling Part 10: Jabba The Hutt Necklace

Jabba The Hutt Necklace 2013 Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas.com

UPDATE: Etsy’s Rude and Reckless made one, please check it out here. Original post as follows: 

Happy May The Fourth!

This is technically a choke chain (oh I slay me) that features a Jabba The Hutt pendant. There are a few Jabba necklaces out there — much to my surprise — but all lacking the dark humor seen in the design above.

Such a necklace is destined to be worn by geeky girls you do not trifle with. Or worn by those who are a slave to fashion (okay okay I’ll stop).

Sentinel Robot Public Sculpture/Comic-Con Prop

X-Men Sentinel Robot Giant Head Sculpture Prop X-Men Comic-Con Cosplay Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas.com

This is something I that I thought would make for a fun (and geeky) public art sculpture: the severed head of a Sentinel robot from the X-Men comics. It would be neat in a public park, however I feel it would be very much at home on a university or college campus as a nod to the Xavier Institute.

In all honesty I doubt any city or school would permit such a geeky art installation, so I think this would be a neat prop that could be parked at comic conventions. Cosplayers and geeks could get their picture taken with the fallen robot, which would be a pretty cool keepsake.

This art installation/show prop could have lights in the eyes, which adds a bit of flavor. The Sentinel could blink back to life momentarily or stare angrily for prolonged periods of time.

Maybe that fella who built the life-size Skeletor could make this?

If you dig this please check out my take on geeky landmarks.

One last thing: the Sentinels have to be in the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past film, right? That would be awesome.
