I was a little late to the Scott Pilgrim party. I started reading the books by Brian Lee O’Malley last year, just finished the sixth one and watched the movie starring Michael Cera this past weekend. And well, I’m a fan. Once a week I sift through the millions of Etsy listings to find the best in geek chic for Blog@ readers. Last week I found some wicked Dungeons & Dragons items for your raiding parties, this week I’m going to show you some handmade items worthy of a power up.
Well here’s something you don’t see every day. A Scott Pilgrim vs. the Day of the Dead statue. User comradecalacas has created this unique item featuring Scott and his Power of Self-Respect sword and it could be yours for $68. Confused skeleton and all.
You won’t find this in just any campus shop but if you partake not in the meat, nor the breastmilk, nor the ovum, of any creature with a face, well then, you’re in luck. Pick up this Vegan Academy t-shirt for $18 from timeandspaceclothing. Todd Ingram would wear it proudly…and then get arrested in it by the Vegan Police. Wanna be the one to do the arresting? Grab this Vegan Police patch for $3.75 from PaladinAnderson.
Want to wear your awesomeness on your head instead? Try this 1Up headband, it will give you that extra edge. User janinebasil will make you one of your own for $20.
Professions of love can be big or small but in Scott Pilgrim’s world they’re always as big as billboards. If you’re one for such expressions something like this Scott Pilgrim Kissing Ramona Flowers Giant Wall Decal might be the way to go. $47.99 from user FixerUp. If you prefer smaller details, perhaps this Scott Pilgrim Initials decal or the Gideon Triforce Symbol if you’re the evil type. Both $5 each from user GlueJunkie.
Totally awesome. Who wouldn’t want this Knives Chau ne0xel? User ne0xel created this 24×30 inch masterpiece of Knives’ depiction in the Scott Pilgrim game out of 1 centimeter wooden “pixels.” This art cost $320 but you have to admit, it is pretty sweet.
As always, bear in mind, since Etsy is a craft website and not a commercial, mass-market dealer, items are almost always one-of-a-kind or in very limited availability. When you see something you like, buy it. It may not be there the next time you surf round. (Yes, it’s a very dangerous site for your wallet.) Also, since most items are created individually, many sellers are willing to customize something specifically to suit your needs. Just ask!
