You can buy NHL-branded socks that feature the team colors, logo, and nickname. But what about socks that look just like the ones the players are wearing? No such thing exists! It’s weird. Perhaps they are too generic in appearance?
Logos could be tacked on but I don’t think they are necessary. Would be nice to just buy a pack of these at a Walmart instead of those boring white tube socks.
Here’s a very simple NES Controller shoe. The laces double as the controller cord, making it look like a gamepad is strewn about your foot. This design can be applied to many other consoles.
It’s Friday, so why not something on the fun side? Yup, pearl jewelry based on the board game Hungry Hungry Hippos. Depicted above are a pair of earrings and a necklace, though this could translate into bracelets and rings as well.
Obviously these would be for the geek girl with a sense of humor. That’s because there is an inherent danger in gifting hippo-themed jewelry to your lady friend. You might be safer trying to hug a real Hippopotamus.
Here is a fragrance/brand design for Pepé Le Pew, hopeless romantic and unknowing cat lover. Despite the skunk on the bottle, it should probably smell good. This can be a cologne or aftershave.

In the film The Iron Giant, the titular character idolizes Superman, and in one scene wears an ‘S’ around his neck (below). I feel it would work as a necklace, tie clip, or cuff links, much like the Superman insignia does.
This is a more humorous entry in the Geek Bling series – a pair of earrings based on those vile Ceti Eels from Star Trek II The Wrath Of Khan. You know – those alien creatures that burrow into the ear and set up shop in the brain stem? Quaint little parasites.
I think the lady Trekkers out there can appreciate this design:
I was hoping to post a video clip from Star Trek II that featured these horrific creatures, but none can be found. So much for traumatizing people who are not in the know. *sigh!*
This one is pretty simple – a scaled-down replica of the Kryptonite chain that Superman wore (against his will) in the first movie. It was cleverly bestowed upon the Man of Steel by Lex Luthor.
