    This is the $250 Bedjet Bed Heater & Fan (currently a Kickstarter project). It blows hot air under your covers to keep you warm at night so a lover's cold foot doesn't lead to a breakup. I know that at least a fan-only version of this has existed for awhile because I remember... / Continue →

    Note: They're not spiders, they're Opiliones (aka harvestmen, daddy longlegs). Unfortunately, that doesn't make it any less terrifying. This is a furry looking clump that, when poked with a finger, produces nightmares (previously: this one). I dare you to eat something spic... / Continue →

    This is the alien facehugger winter mask hand-knit and sold by Etsy seller Knitrocious ($150). It looks pretty accurate. Plus nobody will think you're weird for wearing it. And if they do, send them over to my place and I'll answer the door wearing nothing but a gas mask and... / Continue →

    This is the $6,500 Santa Stake-Out kit being sold by PlanetOptics so you can spy on Santa while he's making his rounds. Me? I'm not sitting around in the cold waiting for that fat bastard to go flying by, I'm going to lure him to me. "With milk and cookies?" What is this, a... / Continue →

    Peter Venkman: he's everybody's favorite Ghostbuster. And now you can pretend to BE him with this Venkman Ghostbusters Jacket available from SuperheroStuff ($70). We can all get one then run around pretending to bust ghosts! Don't cross the streams, LOLOL. We're having a gr... / Continue →

    This is a trippy $60 Star Wars sweatshirt available for pre-order from Rage On (you know I will!). It looks like the kind of sweatshirt a droid might vomit after getting a virus. It's like R2-D2 was in charge of delivering the design to the factory, but got his memory banks s... / Continue →

    This is the giant Captain Picard quilt sewn by Candy Coated Quilts (those sound sticky). Can you think of anything better than waking up to the giant face of Captain Picard staring back at you? "Tons of things." Well sure, but it still beats the hell out of a dog or cat's @$... / Continue →

    This is a line of conceptual Pac-Man and ghost hoodies from Insignificant Fish Industries. They look like Pac-Man...and the ghosts. I guess there's not much more to say except I would wear every single one of them, not all at the same time, but definitely without pants. Gott... / Continue →

    Seen here looking straight out of a Skymall catalog, this is the $32 BB Tech Screen Cleaning Throw blanket. It's a blanket with a microfiber edge on one side for wiping gadget screens because, you know, this is the world we live in. You laugh now, but your parents just ordere... / Continue →

    This is the Camp Daybed from designer Stephanie Hornig. It's a daybed with an integrated sleeping bag. Sure you could just lay a sleeping bag out on your existing couch, but if you don't bungee-cord yourself to the frame you risk rolling off in your sleep (sleeping bags are s... / Continue →

    This is designer Aga Brzostek's comfy looking Autumn/Winter Chair. That's a bad name, but a good idea. It's a chair with an integrated sweater blanket cover that you can get into and wrap all around you to stay warm on those cold winter nights. Plus if there's a house fire y... / Continue →

    This is a full-body sweater made for lumberjacks to model in their bathrooms. It buttons up at the top, which is where you have to climb in. It also looks like it has a zipper crotch which is handy because I doubt this thing is pee-proof like those panties we saw earlier. Yo... / Continue →

    SOULFUL PATCH BROBRO. This is a crocheted knight's helmet for sale by Etsy seller HattieHooker. You know, I was friends with a hooker once. She was always asking if I wanted a HJ but I could never tell if she was being serious/if I'd have to pay. That never happened. $40 g... / Continue →

    Seen here lounging in a VERY magical looking living room, a lady models the $35 Gryffindor Uniform Comfy Throw With Sleeves. It's not actually a Snuggie like I said in the title though -- Snuggies are a name brand, and this is not. Unfortunately, you're not a Gryffindor so th... / Continue →

    This is the Weir Overlook Special Edition beanie. It's a beanie knit with the pattern of the carpet in the Overlook Hotel from 'The Shining'. I like the blue pom-pom on top (I'm a sucker for pom-poms). They'll be available sometime later this month but are a limited edition s... / Continue →

    This is a one-size-fits-most-adults-except-really-really-fat-ones Totoro cloak. It keeps you warm and makes you look like everyone's favorite neighbor. Unless you have a really busty neighbor who always comes over asking to borrow a cup of sugar IN THE NUDE, in which case whe... / Continue →

    This is a $25 Severed Wampa Arm Ice Scraper from ThinkGeek. It looks like a wampa arm, but no wampas were harmed in the making of the product. OR WERE THEY? I could tell you no humans were harmed when I made coffee in the breakroom this morning, but I know for a fact I hurt ... / Continue →

    Seen here after effectively breaking me down and making me to do the impossible (buy a Snuggie), this is a $30 Joker themed blanket-robe from SuperHeroStuff. Mine just came yesterday, and I've been wearing it ever since. Oh, hold on, my roommate wants to talk to me. Yes, Der... / Continue →

    This is the $105 Beer Hunter Jacket from skateboarding company Enjoi. It has insulated pockets to keep your beers cold and you warm. Plan on downing a forty? It has a pocket for one. Planning on downing a bunch of wine coolers? *smack* HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT, MAN. I'm jo... / Continue →

    The Klymit Ulaar Jacket is a jacket that has a bunch of air pockets that can be inflated a la Reebok Pumps. Allegedly they help keep you warm, but I couldn't reach my weather wizard on the crystal ball this morning so I have no idea if that's actually true. I think he's busy b... / Continue →
