Goldie x WeLoveFine:Fashions to Rule the Galaxy In"We debuted them at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, exclusively in the Lucasfilm Pavilion. Now, WeLoveFine is thrilled to make our Star Wars boutique collection, created in conjunction with Goldie, available to our online followers and fellow Star Wars fans!
This collection is fun, fashionable, and practically bursting with the power of The Force. It was a delight to share with excited Star Wars lovers face to face as we introduced them, and we can’t wait to share this uniquely fan-bulous collection with a wider audience.”
Definitely check out this shop for a whole range of really awesome leather geekery. (Personally, I’m also head over heels for this Warhammer Orc bracelet.)

Earthbound creator and Nintendo collaborate for another fun thing ⊟
Hobonichi, the Japanese company headed by Mother/Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi and the maker of fine daily planners, has teamed up with Nintendo for a cute, unexpected product: Super Mario Bros. and Mr. Saturn haramaki belly warmers.
"The haramaki was once strictly functional underwear that had a grandpa-image similar to yellowing long johns. In 2001, Hobonichi reinvented them as fashion items to layer with your clothes.
You know those everyday momentary chills you get when you bend over and your shirt rides up a little? Gone. I see London, I see France, I see someone’s wearing a super handsome belly warmer over their pants. Studies have proven that wearing this thick, extra layer around your stomach keeps the rest of your body warm in the winter. It’s also great in the summer when trapped inside all day under a blasting air conditioner.”
You can find instructions on how to purchase a haramaki from Hobonichi’s Japanese site here. More photos after the break!
