I’ve always thought it would be cool to have a Star Trek cake at some point but being more of a Deep Space Nine fan, I would probably want a cake in the shape of the Defiant.  However, I certainly wouldn’t pass up an awesome cake like this one of the USS Enterprise if it was given to me!

The awesome folks over at Charm City Cakes created this awesome USS Enterprise NCC-1701 cake that looks like it shouldn’t even be real based on how big it is and it is balancing on a tiny stand.  I love the this inclusion of the light as it really brings this space ship cake to life!

Yesterday, I posted some awesome Tetris fingernail art from DeviantART user KayleighOC and after browsing her very impressive collection of geeky fingernail art pictures, I decided to post this Doctor Who TARDIS fingernail art picture due to its sheer awesomeness.

Although four of the fingers seem kind of plain with just the white and TARDIS blue, the really amazing piece of nail art is the thumb which is painted up to look like the TARDIS!  The level of detail is amazing!

I think it still suffers from the practicality problem that I mentioned in yesterday’s Tetris fingernail art post, but who cares about being practical when your thumbnail looks like a TARDIS?

Not too long ago, I posted about a really great Doctor Who TARDIS hooded bathrobe over on my other blog, Fanboy Fashion.  However, perhaps not all Doctor Who fans want a TARDIS bathrobe which is why you now have the option of getting this awesome Time Lord hooded bathrobe as well!

The awesome people over at ThinkGeek are selling this amazing Time Lord hooded bathrobe for just $69.99!  Now you can feel like a cross between the Doctor and Hugh Hefner whenever you decide to lounge around the house in your bathrobe!  However, for those that would prefer the awesome TARDIS bathrobe, the same link works as you have to choose if you would prefer the Time Lord or TARDIS version on that page before you add the item to your cart.  Personally, I want both!

I have long dreamed of having an awesome home theater setup in my house but the truth is, unless I decide to make a major addition on the back of my house, my house is just way too small to have a real home theater setup.  However, if I ever hit the lottery (unlikely to happen since I don’t play), the first thing I plan on doing is buying a house with enough room that I can make a Star Trek home theater just like this (or perhaps just buy this house)!

This mind blowing Star Trek themed home theater is one of the most advanced (and likely most expensive) private home theaters in the US.  It includes everything from motorized sliding doors (just like you see in Star Trek) to concert type lighting and a commercial grade heating and air conditioning system.   As a Star Trek fan, this is definitely the home theater of my dreams!  I’d even say it blows the Star Wars home theater I posted last week right out of the water!

On a related note, does anybody know where I can buy one of those Star Trek chairs?  I WANT ONE!

A lot of people seem to think that cosplay is just for people and their unfortunate pets who don’t get much choice when it comes to dressing up.  Well, it seems that is not exactly true because now even droids are getting into the cosplay action!

This awesome picture R2-D2 sporting its best Iron Man cosplay came across my Facebook feed this weekend thanks to the people who run the annual Starfest Convention that I usually go to.  I have no clue who actually made this Iron Man version of R2-D2 (the little signature in the corner isn’t readable), but I would say they did a fantastic job!   If you know who built this awesome Iron Man R2-D2, let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

I’ve posted a lot of great knitted hats on here before that are all super geeky, but this knitted Borg hat blows all of them out of the water.  Actually, I am probably more inclined to call this a mask more than a normal hat but it could go either way I guess.  No matter what you call it, it is still awesome!

This amazing knitted Borg hat / mask (called 2 of 7) was created by Reddit user k80k80k80 and they did it entirely freestyle!  I can’t imagine something like this would be easy even if you had a pattern, but to do it freestyle is quite impressive!   If this is the kind of stuff that I can find in r/knitting, then I think I am definitely going to have to subscribe to that subreddit!  Resistance is futile!

I’m starting to think it is engagement season or something after yesterday’s Jurassic Park proposal video and the Star Trek engagement ring that I posted last week.  Well, now the Doctor Who fans can get in on the geeky engagement action with this awesome TARDIS ring box!

Sadly, I don’t know who made this or if the person they proposed to said yes but this TARDIS engagement ring box is awesome and that is all that really matters, right?

Now, if you were to combine this awesome TARDIS engagement ring box with the TARDIS ring that I posted a while back, there would be no way that a real Whovian would turn down your marriage proposal!

With Fathers Day coming up this weekend, this felt like the perfect thing to post.  For the Star Wars loving fathers that like to get their sons involved in the kitchen, these Star Wars themed cooking aprons would be the perfect gift!

Etsy seller bellalise is the creator of this awesome set of Star Wars cooking aprons depicting Darth Vader (the dad apron) and Luke Skywalker (the kid apron).  Unfortunately, they are sold out right now but from the product description, I would expect it to be re-listed sometime soon since they are made to order.

If there is a geekier way to celebrate the bond between a Star Wars loving father and son for Fathers Day, I haven’t seen it!

In the past, I posted some pictures of a mind blowing Pirates of the Caribbean home theater but for those who prefer prefer to watch a movie from a galaxy far, far away, here are some pictures of an amazing Star Wars home theater!

This mind blowing Star Wars home theater features not only the screen and what looks like an impressive speaker setup and some comfy seats, but statues of C-3PO, Boba Fett and Han Solo frozen in carbonite.  Although I don’t know where this house is that is home to this amazing home theater, apparently it belonged to two of the past presidents of the Official Star Wars Fan Club.  Finally, a fan club I want to become president of!

For the Star Wars loving earring wearers out there, I have found the perfect earrings for you!  Lightsaber earrings!

If you have always thought it would be cool to dangle a pair of lightsabers from your ears, now you can!  And you can make them yourself!

Instructables member CreativeToto posted a DYI guide for creating your own lightsaber earrings like the ones in the picture below.  For those who aren’t a fan of red lightsabers, of course you can substitute it with whatever color you want.  Head over to Instructables for the guide to making your own lightsaber earrings.
