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.
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.
