Geek Chic Headphones & Sunglasses Will Make You The Envy Of All Nerds

Ketchupize is a design studio based in Athens, Greece.  Their work immediately caught my eye while surfing Etsy recently and since I’m both a nerd and have a sunglasses obsession, I basically want them all. Items range from about $40-85 depending on the style of headphones or glasses/sunglasses and feature designs from Doctor Who, Adventure Time, The Walking Dead, My Little Pony, and more!

Your Childhood, But More Badass (And A Little Scary)

French illustrator Sylvain Sarrailh may make you think you’re remembering childhood wrong with his series of “BADASS” character designs. Some may make you laugh, others may make you cry, but part of me is curled up in the corner rocking back and forth saying, “Can’t sleep, clown will eat me.”

We previously posted a cool Super Mario Cat Complex Etsy user CatastrophiCreations put together. It was a subdued piece that worked a little nerdy fun into your home decor.
