Win the Sumo Wrestling Match, Get a Giant Green Macaron

Giant Green Macaron Sumo PRize

Boxers get cash, but sumo wrestlers get an even better prize (subjectively speaking, that is): a giant macaron. At least, that’s what the second placer was awarded at the recent Sumo Senshuraku tournament in Japan. The giant green dessert was prepared by renowned French pastry chef Pierre Hermé, which made sense since the match was part of the France-Japan Friendship Cup.

Now that’s delectable to ginormous proportions!

iPhone Case Puts the Feeling of Green Grass In Your Hand

Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case

Lush greens, the feeling of freshly-cut blades of grass on your feet.. what does that imagery remind you off? Whether it’s a golf course or a typical summer’s day when you get to do nothing but lie back on a hammock, it often brings back fond memories (with the exception being those who had to endlessly mow other people’s lawns, that is.)

Now you can revel in those grassy memories by getting the Shibaful lush lawn iPhone case which is exactly what its name implies it is. The case is wrapped all around in a lush field of faux grass that looks and almost feel like the real thing. It’s not the practical or most durable of cases out there, but that isn’t really the point with this case, is it?

The Shibaful phone case is available for $84.

Giant Sausage Pillow: Sweet Dreams are Made of Meat

Giant Sausage Pillow

You probably should avoid this pillow at all costs if you’re on a diet or trying to go vegan. As its name implies, the giant sausage pillow is just that: a larger-than-life pillow that looks like a delicious grilled sausage. Isn’t your mouth watering already? Put one on your couch, on your bed, or on the floor–wherever you might feel like snuggling against it, actually.

Its makers were able to make the print look so realistic by using a special sublimation technique after shaping the pillow into a giant, bent sausage.

Go Animal This Halloween: Eagle Mask and Talon Gloves

Eagle Mask and Talon Gloves

 

If you’re too lazy to get a proper costume or make one this Halloween, then go for something outrageous instead. Case in point: this bald eagle mask and eagle talon gloves that will (sort of) transform you into a man-eagle. Both are made from latex and should fit most adult heads and hands, as long as your measurements fall within the average.

Finish your look by putting on a shirt bearing our flag’s design. And if you can be bothered to, make a set of wings to go with it.

Need Cuddles? There’s An App for That and It’s Called ‘Cuddlr’

Cuddlr

Sad? Lonely? In need of a hug? Well, Cuddlr does you one better by not only finding you someone to hug, but someone you can actually cuddle with. The concept is interesting but an app that lets you meet up with strangers so you guys can cuddle is a bit…off. Cuddle is a location-based app that keeps track of people who are looking for cuddles and their current location.

Walk into an area where there’s someone in need and you’ve got yourself a cuddle buddy. Its developers say it’s safe, secure, and private but…we’ll see about that.

A Drumstick For Your Ear? KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

KFC Drumstick iPhone Cover

 

KFC Japan is at it again. Remember the chicken keyboard and mouse they recently offer to their patrons? It looks like their higher-ups decided that that wasn’t enough, so they came up with the drumstick iPhone cover. It’s so ridiculous that it almost makes you want one, just for the heck of it. Even Colonel Sanders looks like he’s rolling on the floor laughing like there’s no tomorrow (in case you’re wondering, his speech bubble says something along the lines of “Why is it so big?”)

Well, that’s what we’re wondering, too. The only way to get one of the cases was to win it from KFC Japan. Dang, that’s a huge case. Ironically, it’s making me not want to eat chicken after looking at it.

Farm of the Undead: Grow Your Own Zombie with Chia

Chia Pet Zombie

Ever since The Walking Dead took the world by storm, people have become pretty obsessed with the undead. Companies have also been scrambling to take advantage of the trend, and Chia is no exception. You might be familiar with Joseph Enterprises’ line of Chia Pets, where you basically just water it until the chia grows and covers the planter that it came with.

You’ve already seen the kitten or puppy versions– now check out the Zombie-themed ones. There’s the Creepy Holden, which features a zombie head poking out from your (soon-to-grow) garden. Then there’s Lifeless Lisa, his female counterpart, and the Restless Arm which features none other than a, well, restless arm.

You can get them from Amazon or Home Depot for $30.

Everybody Was Sumo Wrestling: Sumo Suits

Sumo Suits

Sumo wrestling ain’t sumo without the extra padding. And by padding, we mean all that extra weight (fat, muscle, and everything in between) on your body. The closest thing you can get to sumo wrestling is by donning this Sumo Suit and going at your opponent like there’s no tomorrow. Granted, you won’t be able to crush your opponent under your weight– I mean, it’s just a suit with lots of padding, for crying out loud– but the extra bulk will let you move and simulate the motions of an actual sumo wrestler.

At least, in theory. It’s available for $1,600 (or you could just, you know, buy a lot of Big Macs with the money and gain that extra weight for real.)

Check Out Acer’s Selfie Hat for London Fashion Week!

Selfie-Hat

In recent years, people have reached new heights when it comes to vanity. Maybe the era of selfies began when phone makers began putting a camera with each smartphone they made. It exploded when front-facing cameras were upgraded and when monopods (aka selfie sticks) made their way to Amazon.

Someone already came up with the Selfie Brush. Now are you ready for the Selfie Hat? The latter was created by fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis in partnership with Acer. The pink sombrero is eye-catching not only because of all that glitter, but because of an attachment on the brim where Acer’s Iconia A-1 840 tablet is tucked in.
