Things We Saw Today: This Is Fine Dog Plush Toy Made Available Via Kickstarter

Now THIS is fine.

You're probably already familiar with the "This is Fine" comic/meme, in which a dog sits in a house that is literally burning down around him. It's become something of an unofficial metaphor for this here 2016 so far even though it originated back in 2013, and now the artist behind the comic, KC Green, has created a Kickstarter where you can get your very own This is Fine dog plush toy.

Geeky Ring Pairs For You Wear With Your Best Friend

My Precious!

The only trouble I can see inherent in these rings by Etsy seller It Came From the Internet is deciding who is who. Some of them, like Mulder and Scully, should be fairly easy to figure out. But I can see friendships ending over the question of "Which of us is the Doctor and which is the companion?"

What Would You Offer Jabba For These Star Wars Rings?

TK-421 Why Aren't You At Your Post?

J.A.P. Studio shows off some prototypes of fantastically detailed Star Wars rings they created for the 20th anniversary. Apparently they only had the license for them from 1997-99 though so you can't pay them for one now. However, you could try to pay someone on Ebay for a few. Though you may not like the price...

Beautiful Rings For Every Bending Style and One More

eye candy

Steelcandy is a Tumblr run by an Australian design student, so I'd take a good guess that these designs are not available for sale: they're just very convincing 3D mockups of what inlaid rings for each of Avatar: The Last Airbender's four nations and the mysterious White Lotus Society might look like. You'll just have to enjoy them with your eyeballs, for they don't actually exist. Just like Lion Turtles.

Museum Successfully Buys Back Jane Austen’s Ring From Kelly Clarkson, Can Destroy Sauron Now

My Precious!

Well, no, Jane Austen did not carry the One Ring for much of her days, only relinquishing it in death after an unnaturally extended life. But Kelly Clarkson did buy it in auction, and the UK wasn't too comfortable with that, so various folks and one anonymous donor have managed to raise the funds and buy it back. This makes the author's old jewelry one of the national treasures of the United Kingdom.

An Engagement Ring Fit For A Kick-Ass Space Princess

May The Force Be With You

Victoria, aka ScruffyRebel, from Syfy's Heroes of Cosplay got a fantastic moment captured on film during the finale. Her boyfriend Jinyo proposed while in Star Wars cosplay, with a Leia-inspired ring, and with an assist from the one and only Peter Mayhew. Just one thing, Victoria was wearing a Star Trek uniform. Awkward! Not really, but I had to say it. Because of the show, they couple had to keep the news under wraps for six months. I can't even imagine. The ring was created by Paul Michael Design, who you may remember from their past geek-related work on the Adventure Time and R2-D2 engagement rings. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

‘Tis the Season to Put Vincent Price’s Face on Your Finger

Not all that glitters is gold

If there's one thing that Tumblr is saying to me loud and clear right now, it's that if it's past Labor Day and not November yet, that means it must be Halloween. And what's a better Halloween accessory than the sterling silver head of your favorite B-movies star? Unfortunately, apparently there are only three of these out there.

Beautifully Subtle Golden Snitch Engagement Ring

This is just like magic!

I'm a person who has no shame in flaunting her geeky interests publicly with my clothing and accessories, but paradoxically the geeky wearables I find most alluring are the subtle ones. I doubt that anyone who wasn't familiar with the particular design of the Golden Snitch would peg House on Hudson's topaz inlaid ring as anything other than a simply well designed bit of finger dressing.

This Custom Adventure Time Engagement Ring Should Technically Fit Anyone’s Finger

Oh Mah Glob Guys

Because it's Jake. Comic creator Josh Adams (Doctor Who ongoing, Batman Odyssey) saw Paul Bierker's R2-D2 ring we posted on The Mary Sue a while back and decided he needed to propose to his girlfriend Saori with an equally geeky engagement ring. Adams contacted Bierker with his idea - Jake taking the shape of a ring - and he made it a reality. We're very happy to know we were at least in some way responsible for this happening. Hit the jump to see the finished product on Saori's finger.

Rings, in the Shape of Sloths, to Hug Your Fingers

Awwwwww

"In most conditions, the fur hosts two species of symbiotic cyanobacteria, which provide camouflage. Because of the cyanobacteria, sloth fur is a small ecosystem of its own, hosting many species of non-parasitic insects." - Wikipedia. Previously in Rings and Sloths

I Have No Idea How This Wedding Ring Works; It’s Still Cool

If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

Ben Kokes went through ten prototypes for this ring before he came up with one worth presenting to his fiance Mary, "because doing things in the most complicated way possible is just what he does to show the love." Those are real white and blue gemstones illuminated with LEDs, but they only light up when the ring is near an "induced alternating magnetic field." Now I'm going to be honest with you: I don't know what that means. But if Kokes' process, documented on his website, is any indication, it's very impressive. (via io9.)

Silver and Gold: Rings Capped With Tiny Replica Nintendo Cartridges

Not all that glitters is gold

Oh My Geekness on Etsy makes a number of jewelry items that involve miniature NES cartridges, and I submit that they should really think about expanding to Game Boy cartridges as well, because who doesn't want a ring with a ruby, emerald, diamond, or pearl? Yes, that was all to make a Pokémon pun. I'll see myself out.
