These Geeky Christmas Sweaters are Perfect for the Season

Geeky Christmas Sweatshirts

When people talk about Christmas sweaters,”ugly” isn’t too far off. However, these particular ones designed by artist Drew Wise are anything but ugly. They’ll probably even appeal to the non-geeky folks who don’t get what’s being references in the designs: Guardians of the Galaxy featuring none other than the four guardians and the scene in the beginning when Peter gets abducted; Star Wars featuring R2D2, Darth Vader, lots of Stormtroopers, and the Death Star; and Doctor Who featuring otherworldly creatures, the Doctor, and of course, TARDIS.

Hit the break to check out the rest of the designs and the actual sweaters.

Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire Bags Keep The Merch Fever Alive

star-wars-bags-4

Perhaps even more impressive than the visual and auditory marvels that await us in the upcoming Star Wars sequel is the unstoppable train of merchandising opportunities that’s currently rolling through the marketplace. Take the above travel bags as an example. They’re actually kind of cool, featuring a hook that lets you hang them up on a hotel door somewhere and easily access your things. There’s one for the Galactic Empire, and another for the Rebel Alliance. They’re both neat, and cost next to nothing at $35, but you’ll have to wait until January 2015 to get your hands on them.

It’s Out of This World: Millennium Falcon Area Rug

Millennium Falcon Area Rug

Regardless of how small your den may be, you can now fit a space ship in it–that is, if you have at least 33 square feet of vacant space. It’s not an actual space ship, of course, but this rug with the Millennium Falcon printed on it. The level of detail is pretty impressive, and the entire rug is cut out in the shape of the Falcon. If you’ve got some time on your hands, you can break out your tools and even turn it into a tapestry.

The rug is made from 100% polyester pile and is officially licensed.

The Force is With This Princess Leia Ladies’ Fleece Robe

Princess Leia Ladies’ Fleece Robe

Prince Willaim is married, so you can’t be his princess anymore. Who you can be, though, is the princess of your apartment with this Princess Leia fleece robe.

C-3PO And R2-D2 Wedding Bands For Star Wars Geeks

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 11.25.01 AM

These are a pair of nice-looking Star Wars themed wedding bands. One is made out to look like R2-D2 while the other C-3PO. Who wears which is entirely up to you of course, but if you’re enough of a geek, disagreement over this might just be enough to fuel endless arguments ultimately leading to your divorce… I mean, do you really want to give your wife the C-3PO ring, while keeping the obviously cooler R2-D2 for yourself?

They’re the work of jeweller Juan Hidalgo, and we don’t know how much they cost.

Ewok Heels: The Force is With These Furry Footwear

Ewok Heels

There’s nothing cute or cuddly about Stormtroopers, but all the cuteness you’ll ever need can be found in Endor’s forests, where the Ewoks thrive. Those teddy-bear like creatures can melt the coldest of hearts–well, except for the likes of Darth Vader, that is–and now you can wear ‘em on your feet.

Not actual Ewoks, mind you, but Ewok-inspired heels that look oh-so-adorkable. They look comfy enough and are as furry as you would expect them to be. Not to worry though, as no actual Ewoks were harmed in the making of these shoes.

Light Saber Keys

star-wars-lightsaber-house-keys-640x533

We suppose you could paint your own keys and pretend they’re “light saber keys” too. But what’s the fun in that? These blanks have already been painted for you, and they come in KW1/KW10, SC1 or WR5 types. Order a pair and go to your local hardware store to have them cut for you. It’s $10 for a pair, which is really not expensive considering you want them pretty badly.
