Yes, this toast perfume is real. No, you probably can't get any. The Federation of Bakers made it as a limited edition for London Fashion Week, and they're all out of samples. Sorry to show you your dream and whisk it away right after. (That's Nerdalicious)
Either way, Pixie Cold has just started a series of costume makeup that incorporates (dead) insects and beetles. And so we would have just used those pictures, but... some of her other art is just to pretty not to include. Many of her pictures are available as prints right here. From Nyan Cat, to Wonder Woman, to a creepy Cheshire Cat makeover, enjoy!
Well, 12/21 passed without incident and, much to everyone's shock, the world didn't come to a fiery end, proving once again that you just can't trust an ancient Mesoamerican culture. In fact, the Inca still owe me $20 after skipping out on a bar tab, and they better not think I've forgotten about it. Today, though, we bring you a glimpse of the apocalypse that could have been, courtesy of of a Nyan-powered Tard the Grumpy Cat. You can behold this truly fearsome thing below, but be forewarned: it is not a video for the faint-hearted or weak-willed.
Nyan Cat, the rainbow cat meme we all know and love, was originally an image created by Chris Torres. It is known. Torres based the lovable image on his cat, Marty. Unfortunately for Torres, Marty was diagnosed with feline infectious peritonitis -- basically a death sentence for cats. This was only a week ago. Last night, Marty passed away in Torres' arms, bringing an end to the cat's unexpected celebrity status.
We told Nyan Cat it could be whatever it wanted to be. Its response? It became all 151 original Pokémon. Making use of Poparock's 8-bit Pokémon theme song, the uploader (Simon Johnson) transformed the pop-tart feline into every single one. Because doesn't this just feel like what the internet was built for?
We've seen alternate versions of Pokémon before (here, here, here, here, and here), but never quite like this. Pokémon got a whole lot Nyanier with each of the original 151 Pokémon as Nyan Cats. According to uploader, Simon Johnson, this video took roughly 150 hours to complete and involved over 4,000 individual images. Thank you, Simon! Thank you for doing the thing that none of us had the courage or the will to do. Enjoy.
Whether it was the kid's idea or their parents, we're thankful for kids cosplaying at this year's Comic-Con International in San Diego. Why? Because: 1.) it gives us hope for future, epic, cosplays. 2.) They're frakking adorable! We think we've rounded up a pretty nice collection for you too "oooh" and "awww" at. Take a look! (And if you missed our gallery of impressive adults, check that out too!)
We've shown you dozens of Nyan Cats since the Pop-Tart feline screamed across our collective consciousness leaving a rainbow in its wake. Now, a genius by the name of Kevin Weir has made a Tom Waits version of the beloved rainbow cat, complete with Pop-Tart guitar. Ladies and gentlemen: I declare this meme over.
It's hard to imagine a world without YouTube, as the video sharing service has entirely changed how we take in content on these wide interwebs. That's why the service's year-end retrospective covering the most popular videos of 2011 is so fascinating, as it features many of the vital videos that came to define this year. And that's both a good and bad thing.
If only it were socially acceptable to dress up in costumes every day we'd have so much more fun. Just like we did with our Twitter contest! We asked you to show us your Halloween costumes for a chance to win a sold-out Her Universe Star Wars tote bag with art by Katie Cook and signed by Ahsoka Tano herself, Ashley Eckstein. The Mary Sue staff has sifted through the entries and we've found you all very creative and talented. But as in Highlander, there can be only one. Hit the jump to check out 10 of our favorites and then, the lucky winner!
I remember, back in the day when my mother and grandmother taught me how to knit and I was so little that I couldn't make myself a kitty sweater, because whatever size I started making it, I would have outgrown it by the time I finished anyway.
But I was old enough to remember my reaction to learning about crocheting, which was "Wait. I just figured out how to knit, and now you want me to do the same thing with with only one needle?" Needless to say, I kind of wish I'd learned despite those reservations, if only to take advantage of MevvSan's kit that will teach you how to make a Nyan Cat Scarf.
Well, I suppose there's still time.

For the discerning Unreal Tournament 3 player looking to make an impression no one is soon to forget, there is the Nyan CatRedeemer. Fully customized with theme music and distinctive rainbow trail, the Nyan Cat missile can be player-navigated to take out even the most capable of enemies. Sure, your opponents might hear it coming from across the map, but that's a small price to pay to ensure that the last thing they see is a smiling rainbow cat. You can find out more about this impressive mod, and download it, at the Epic Games forums.
Remember, the Nyan Cat missile isn't about just destroying your enemies -- it's about obliterating them with cuteness and getting that tune stuck in their heads.
PRguitarman, the guy that brought us the ever-nyaning Nyan Cat, spent six months turning each of the original 151 Pokémon (except he had his friend draw Machamp) into cats. They aren't zooming across the sky leaving a rainbow trail amongst the stars, but they're fairly ridiculous, and provided in animated .gif format below the break.
YouTube user docjazz4 spent two months of long practice becoming a master ocarinist, a word that surprisingly didn't invoke red spellcheck squigglies underneath it when I just typed it. No, docjazz4 didn't learn all of the songs from everyone's favorite ocarina medium -- he spent those two months learning how to play the Nyan Cat theme, and judging from the above video of him rocking out with an ocarina, those two months were time well spent.
