Link certainly has a lot to live up to when it comes to this beautiful rendition of Princess Zelda. Cosplayer Akuriko Costume and photographer Rikku-chan of TotallyToasty Info worked together to bring you this amazingly stunning photo shoot. The tricky thing is that neither of them planned for a night shoot, so any light you see is from their personal car lights. Pretty nifty trick once you see the rest of the photos!

Mystery Geek Box Monthly Subscriptions: The Good, The Bad, and The Geeky

soda-roulette-mystery-box-279058-.-dated-30-03-15-22702-p

Mystery box subscriptions are all the craze these days. You know what I’m talking about, right? Mystery subscription boxes are mail order boxes filled with stuff that you pay for on a monthly basis. The catch is that you have no idea what is going to be in the box month-to-month. You have to go on faith that what is being delivered, will match the value of what you’re paying for the monthly subscription. And depending on what you subscribe to, you can open your mystery box and it may be filled beyond the value of your monthly fee, or you may come up short. It’s a gamble. And with a million different subscription themes out there; boxes for dogs, for foodies, for grooming, for geeks, etc, etc. You have to be sure you know what you’re getting into. Curious? Read on.

il_fullxfull.671316521_loil

Every now and again we come across an artist who creates awesome geek stuff, just like these light boxes imagined and built by Christina over at Burnt Pixels. The boxes are made of laser-cut MDF, which is painted beautifully to match the box theme. During the day the box is super cute, but when the lights are out and you place a flameless tea light candle (included) underneath, it lights up! I don’t know about you, but I feel like I need one by my bedside, and maybe even one on my fireplace mantle. Check out more of Christina’s work after the break.
