The Inside World of Furniture

luxury-purple-furniture-for-living-room-purple-sofas-sets-1

Whether you need to sit, eat, put stuff away, set stuff down, work, sleep, or go to Narnia, then furniture is absolutely essential for your day to day living. After all, without furniture, we’d just carry on our daily lives in empty rooms with only the floor to conduct our activities on, which is neither comfortable or practical. Even our Neolithic cave dwelling ancestors couldn’t live without furniture 30,000 years ago and they survived without agriculture. Sure the earliest furniture pieces were made from wood, bone, and stone, and no Stone Age pieces exist. But they did depict figures in chairs, according to archaeological evidence. The Neolithic village of Skara Brae in Scotland’s Orkney Islands contains some of the oldest surviving furniture with each house equipped with stone cupboards, beds, dressers, shelves, seats, and even limpet tanks. If they had stone electronics, appliances, and foot motion cars, you’d almost think these people lived like the Flintstones. More complex techniques such as joinery first appear in the early dynastic period of Ancient Egypt with mostly wooden pieces, some decorated precious metals and ivory. Ancient Greece and Rome followed suit with the klinai, a multipurpose couch you can eat, relax, and sleep in. Go into a furniture store today and you’ll find all kinds of styles and in many materials. Home furniture usually consists of wood and upholstery (save for beds which can be wood or metal). Office furniture is normally composed of metal and plastic. Then there’s IKEA furniture which can be made from anything though you’d have to put it together yourself. Still, as with anything else, you’ll find some odd pieces here and there which is where I come in. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of unique furniture you wouldn’t find in a store, including IKEA. Enjoy.

  1. How about a chair that branches out?

Sure it looks as if it was cut off straight from a tree with its bark shaved off. But come on, do you think it was really made that way?

2. May you have a seat in this little teacup.

It’s a teacup chair you can sit in. The handle is on top. Wonder if you can lift it like that. Maybe if you’re a giant.

3. You might have a swinging good time if you sat at this table during a meeting.

Yes, it sure looks fun since the chairs are all swings. And the swings are in all different colors.

4. A strung up bed doesn’t touch the floor.

However, don’t weigh it down much that the ropes snap. Though the look quite delicate to me in this picture.

5. Now your little girl can have her own loft bed and playhouse.

Resembles a quaint little cottage. Has a bed on top and some cushions on the bottom.

6. This china cabinet appears slightly askew.

Well, it certainly has a strong personality. Though it was carved slightly lopsided like that.

7. This couch comes with some extra padding.

Just rest your back on the cushions on this one. Maybe that’s a little high for a couch.

8. A hotdog couch is perfect for any indoor barbecue.

Comprises of a bun couch with a hotdog cushion along with tomato and cucumber slice pillows. Great tasty fun if you want to kick back and relax.

9. Finally a mattress specifically made for any sleeper’s needs.

Okay, maybe not since it’s in the form of a side sleeper. But you’d have to admire the creativity on this.

10. No living room is complete without an overhead bookcase.

Includes a ladder you can use to find books and lights to read them. You can even put houseplants on top.

11. Check out this flowery chair.

Kind of resembles a morning glory. Wonder what sitting on it feels like.

Actually, that spill is made from wood attached to it. But yes, it certainly seems like a mess.

13. How about you kick back and relax in this burger chair?

Includes a bun frame, a burger cushion, and pickle and tomato slice pillows. Goes with the hotdog couch.

14. Perhaps you can make your own bathroom shelf.

This is hung from a towel rack with shower hooks. Yet, holds what you need.

15. For young recruits, boot camp starts at an early age.

If your son likes Vietnam War movies, this is the bed for him. Even has a ladder, porch, and slide.

16. Not sure whether to call this flowery or geometric.

Sure it has a flowery shape on the top. But its stand is a silver ring.

17. Try solving this Rubik’s Cube.

Actually you can’t since the jumbled blocks have drawers. But you can put your clothes in it.

18. You’d think this chair was all folded.

Well, at least the fabric is. Not sure how you can sit on this one.

19. A cabinet like this can make a rather interesting conversation piece.

Yes, it doesn’t look very practical. Unless you live on Middle Earth. Though it’s quite interesting to see that I couldn’t ignore it.

20. You might find your inner piece in this chair.

Yes, it’s in an Indian style. And yes, it has human legs and hands. Not sure what the hand signs stand for.

21. Someone must’ve recycled some very large guitar to make this table.

Actually that’s not the case. But if you have a rocking living room, it’s a must have.

22. How about a cassette coffee table in your living room?

For my younger viewers, before we had CDs and MP3 players, we used to listen to music on these things. Ask anyone who grew up during the 1980s and 1990s.

23. You’d almost think this table was made from work shop scraps.

And in a way it seems to be. But it does make a wonderful art piece, doesn’t it? Also got a lot of legs.

24. There’s nothing more cozy than a nest bed.

Basically consists of a bird’s nest frame with pillows resembling eggs. Makes you want to go straight to sleep.

25. In this bed, your little one can now sleep in a box.

Even has some openings to get in and out as well as a couple of windows. Also has wallpaper inside.

26. A large hollow tree trunk should make adequate chair arms.

Okay, they’re kind of assembled. But they certainly seem fit for a rustic cabin or lodge.

27. You’ll find this couch a bit up a wall, so to speak.

Yes, it’s a couch. Sure it you may not be able to sit on one of its sides. But it’s a couch.

28. I now introduce you to the ultimate book lover’s chair.

It’s practically surrounded by books on the edges. So you can spend hours reading Harry Potter.

29. If you love bacon, then you can’t resist having this for a breakfast table.

Not sure why they have to have bacon stuff. But at least it doesn’t smell like it. I hope.

30. You can easily roll up this chair any time.

Yes, it resembles Dr. Seuss patio furniture. But it’ll certainly look great anywhere.

31. You’d almost be on hand and foot in this chair.

It’s a wooden chair with a hand seat and a foot stand. Great for Halloween. Too creepy for anything else.

At least it has all your books where you want them. It’s a book lover’s dream.

33. You’d almost think this table was dripping.

You’d almost think it was made from paint. But that’s actually plastic.

34. Any kid would certainly monkey around in this jungle bunk bed.

Includes a house, a ladder, and trees. Bet the little monkey goes on the top.

35. You can always hang around in a hammock on the porch.

You can even have all your friends on this hammock couch if you want to. But hope the ropes don’t snap.

36. Any evil overlord would die for this wicked chair.

Yes, it’s certainly a throne a villain would love. Still, got to like the spikes.

37. You can always cuddle up in a baked potato bean bag chair.

It’s even filled with sour cream and chives. The butter pillow is great.

Sure it’s another playhouse bed. But it’s in vibrant colors as well as has shutters and stairs.

39. This armchair is all wiry.

I don’t think this chair is made for sitting. Looks too delicate and uncomfortable.

40. You’d almost think this chair sprouted from the ground.

It’s supposed to look that way. But come on, no tree grows like that.

41. This chair is all legs.

I know what you’re thinking. And yes, it’s sick. The high heels really don’t help.

42. In this bed you can wake up in the trees.

Makes you feel like you’re in an enchanted forest. Even if it’s just your bedroom. But at least you’ll run no risk of contracting Lyme Disease.

43. For patio furniture, may I recommend a grassy couch?

Though you might not want to sit on it in the morning. Or after it rains. Or at night. Or after mowing the lawn.

44. Hope this couch can give you a hand.

Okay, the couch consists of large hand cushions. Yes, it’s creepy and the color is atrocious. But it’s unique so it goes on the post.

45. A scorpion chair will always impress.

I’m sure this is a perfect armchair for a supervillain. Looks really sinister.

46. A car front table is stylish for any retro living room.

There’s a line of furniture made out of car parts. This uses the front of a Rolls Royce.

It’s a rocking chair wheel. More of a modern concept design. Yeah, I know. Doesn’t look quite right.

48. This bench is getting really unraveled.

Yes, it’s an art piece. Because of course, you wouldn’t sit on the thing. If you saw a bench like this in a park, you’d wonder if you’re on acid.

49. You’d almost think this chair was full of spikes.

Not a chair you’d want at your dinner table. But very interesting to see nonetheless.

50. You’d almost think this dresser was her friend.

Sure it can only hold her things. But it’s nevertheless adorable with its arms and legs. Wait a minute.

Well, it’s a ball of yarn with legs that’s a stool. Keep it away from cats.

52. An office should always have desk that’s a fish tank.

Great for waiting rooms, especially dental offices. Then again, maybe not.

53. You’d be amazed with this rose on this chair back.

Though I’m not sure if that would fit in my living room. But the red rose is incredibly gorgeous.

54. This wicker couch will give you wonderful shade outdoors.

Game of Thrones fans must be reeling at this one. Perfect for any Mother of Dragons.

56. This red car desk is a real show on the road.

Perfect for any mechanic’s office or auto dealership. I’m sure anyone would like the shiny red hood.

57. Heard of a VW microbus? How about a VW pool table?

Though it kind of looks pretty lame so to speak. Also, I’m not a fan of pool either.

58. You’d feel you fall asleep in the forest in this bed.

66. Any little girl would enjoy sleeping in this quaint cottage.

Well, the shelf is on the side. And the chair looks really comfy.

68. A Swan Princess just has to sleep in this swan bed.

I actually saw this one at Maymont a couple years ago. There’s also a vanity and chair made out of narwhal horn.

69. I’m sure some people fantasize sleeping in the bed of a truck.

Okay, it’s a truck bed you can sleep in. But at least you don’t have to worry about rolling over.

70. Perhaps you can sit and rest easy in this wooden hanger chair.

You’d almost think this would be appropriate for a chiropractor’s office. Yes, hangers can certainly pass for vertabrae.

Has a rather whimsical quality to it. Like how they used books balance the legs.

I’m sure this is more of an art piece than actual furniture. But somehow I just want to sit on one of the chairs to see what it’s like.

94. There are no bones about this skeletal chair.

Weird how they have skulls on the seat. Perfect for Halloween but incredibly creepy.

Not Licensed By the NCAA College Athletic Craft Projects (Second Edition)

2016-ncaa-tournament-printable-bracket_m0qbm2jnlpto1cez1g5964cd5

Now that the school year is upon us, it seems very appropriate that we move on to some NCAA craft projects since the college football season has just begun. And yes, I have a picture of a March Madness tournament bracket sheet from last year. But c’mon, it’s a signature collegiate event so it fits. Besides, I’m pretty busy with Easter stuff during March anyway. Anyway, while some diehard fans might prefer to buy overpriced crap from the NCAA store, some may want to make their own. Of course, the NCAA has some craft supplies available since they basically sell anything with a college team logo. But you don’t always have to pay the extra cash if you want to get creative. After all, you can get stuff in your college team’s colors at any craft store. Just look on some of the college crafts on Pinterest. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of college craft projects not licensed by the NCAA. Most of these featured will be from Division I, obviously.

  1. This panel obviously states what’s important to those in Alabama.

Well, that would be pretty much it for any Alabama fan. After all, sweet tea is a noted Southern drink.

2. Perhaps carve a Wildcat jack-o’-lantern just in time for basketball season.

Well, at least the University of Kentucky has an appropriate mascot for it. Still, they’re lucky that basketball season starts in October.

3. A burlap wreath is perfect for any home rooting for the Texas Longhorns.

Though this wreath is more suited for football season. Then again, Texas is a huge football state.

4. Curl up on your couch this season with a WVU quilt.

Just make sure that the couch you sit on won’t be used for burning later. Well, in the event the Mountaineers win.

5. By this sign, this home values Georgia football.

After all, I’m sure the Atlanta Falcons let down the family who owns this sign. Then again, they could just be big Bulldog fans.

6. Support the Wichita State Shockers with these shocking blocks.

Includes some black, yellow, and white flowers on the top. Still, they get the “shockers” name from shocks of wheat.

7. Grace your home with this University of Illinois Fighting Illini panel.

The name Illini gets its name from the Illinois Confederation, which the state gets its name. This is their mascot Chief Illiniwek who’s been a center of controversy since the 1970s.

8. For the big game, how about drink from a sparkly LSU cup.

Yes, support your Tigers while drinking from a blinged out cup. Just make sure the glue’s dry before picking it up.

9. Nothing makes Halloween better than a wooden scarecrow for the Tennessee Volunteers.

For some reason, the candy corn nose is fitting with the school colors. Though orange and white aren’t a great combination.

10. Any home for Big Blue would adore this UK ribbon wreath on their home.

Wrapped with polka dot ribbon and decorated with blue and white flowers. Great for any Wildcat door.

11. Deck your living room on game day with this Michigan pallet.

Basically consists of 2 layers. One depicts the “M”. The other consists of yellow wooden strips.

12. The Oregon Ducks are always the pride of their state.

And here we have a pallet of the state of Oregon in green. Since the Ducks are a beloved team there.

13. A stained glass Illinois suncatcher is perfect to put against a window.

Depicts the “I” in orange against a blue background. Sure it’s not glamorous but it’s not like their Illini mascot logo.

14. No Auburn fan can go wrong with this football hanging.

After all, if you’re not a wreath fan, this will certainly do just fine. Has blue and orange dots on the sides.

15. This Alabama wreath is of pure simplicity.

It’s a yarn wreath that’s red on one side and white on the other. But contains houndsooth ribbons in between.

16. For tailgate specials, you might want to consult this Alabama menu.

Sure it’s blank. But I believe standard fare will consist of hotdogs, hamburgers, or wings. Though I may be wrong.

17. Keep warm at the game with this crocheted Spartan helmet from Michigan State.

Wonder if the visor is adjustable. Probably not. Though I’d like to see a more showy plume.

18. Be decked out for the game with these GSU earrings.

These look like big earrings yet that might be the camera’s work. But any fan from Georgia Southern is sure to love them.

19. Since the game should be a festive occasion, may I suggest this feathery LSU wreath?

Yes, it’s quite festive indeed. But you’ll sure get feathers everywhere after awhile.

20. As far as Vols fans go, the state of Tennessee might as well be covered in checkers.

Well, orange and white checks to be exact. It should have a matching polka dot bow to top it off.

21. Welcome guests into your home with this WVU wooden stand.

Consists of 3 carved blocks tied together with WVU letters on top. Only the letters are painted in blue and yellow.

22. On cold days, you might want to get warm with this Clemson quilt.

Though what consists of a cold day in South Carolina, I’m really not sure. But this quilt is a real patchwork of orange and purple.

23. Grace your front door this year with this Iowa Hawkeyes bow wreath.

Bows are made from ribbon and tulle. Some have polka dots and some don’t. Though I like the gold bead things in the middle.

24. To keep warm during this game, this Iowa quilt is just the ticket.

Yes, it’s hung for decoration. But it has everything a Hawkeyes fan would want.

25. A simple Penn State wreath is a yarn one of blue and white.

But it mostly looks white given the letters and the flowers. Perfect for any Nittany Lion home.

26. Bobcat fans may want to adorn their front door with this Texas State decomesh wreath.

For a large university that boasts an undergrad enrollment of 38,000, you don’t usually hear about it that often. Not sure why exactly. Perhaps the University of Texas has a better team.

27. Anyone can work at this Alabama desk.

Perhaps you might want to spend your time there wondering why Alabama’s mascot is an elephant while its team was named after algae. Because I don’t have the slightest idea.

28. Step out to the stadium in these shimmering Auburn heels.

Though it’ll probably be better going to the game in regular shoes. Since heels can be hard on your feet.

29. You can illuminate your home with this Michigan State bottle light.

Makes sure it’s green before you put the Spartan logo on it. Then add the lights.

30. Perhaps this sign may show you how to be a Red Raider.

This is from Texas Tech as you can see. Not going to go over much of the text. So you can see for yourself.

31. Share a toast at the big game with these Kentucky wine glasses.

Then again, they seem more appropriate for the display case. Yet, at least their bottoms come in different patterns.

32. You’ll always have a seat at this Iowa table and chairs.

Okay, this might be for children. Yet, the chairs spell out “Iowa” for you.

33. You can always make a Notre Dame headband pendant with sequins and beads.

Don’t seem to have much Notre Dame stuff on here so far. Though this will make Irish eyes shine.

34. No Michigan State home should be without this Spartan chest table.

After all, who doesn’t like Spartan accommodations? Then again, the wood looks kind of gray.

35. This Illinois bottle light really shines in a room.

You see this one is mostly transparent with an orange “I” along with blue and orange decor. So if you want to light up your room, this is one for you.

36. At Baton Rouge, it’s “Geaux Tigers.”

I’m sure the French will have a hissy fit over this. But that’s how they have it at LSU.

37. For Huskers fans, you can’t do better than a large striped “N” at your door.

After all, “N” stands for Nebraska. Even if it’s in black and white zig-zags.

38. Sweep up the dust with this Kansas State Wildcat dust pan.

Okay, it seems a bit small to contain dirt. And it’s made from a license plate. But at least it shows some school spirit.

39. A Tennessee wreath can always use some white and orange flowers.

Of course the flowers are fake. But at least this wreath doesn’t scream like a creamcicle.

40. Mizzou Tiger pillows will accommodate any couch.

Particularly if it’s a black one. And all the pillows are gold. Two even spell out “Mizzou.”

41. Support your Fightin’ Irish with these Notre Dame blocks.

No surprise it depicts a football on top. After all, that’s what they’re best known for in sports.

42. A burlap WVU wreath is brilliant in blue and yellow.

As you can see, it has a football on it for the Mountaineers. Let’s hope whoever lives here doesn’t set their couch on fire.

43. For a more warm and fuzzy touch, perhaps an Iowa fleece wreath will do.

This one even has flowers and a football to salute the Hawkeyes. But fans would certainly treasure it.

44. With this garden flag, you can show your love to Georgia Southern Eagles.

Its background is of blue and white zigzags. And it has yellow and white zigzags on the football.

45. Clean your house with this Michigan dust pan.

Okay, it’s a dust pan used for display. But you can see where they’re getting at.

46. Show your Crimson Tide pride with this Alabama “A” hanging outside.

After all, there’s nothing more distinctive than a crimson “A.” The bow makes a nice finishing touch.

It’s in shiny burlap with ribbons of every pattern. Great for any bluegrass Wildcat home.

49. This decomesh LSU wreath is worthy of festive occasions.

This one has gold and purple decorations on it in swirls along with a tiger on top. So pretty.

55. A Longhorns wreath always has to be full of bows.

Most of these are in dark orange and white. And there are footballs on the top and bottom.

56. This Nittany Lion bird house will suit any Happy Valley roost.

Yes, a Penn State house is great for the birds. But remember the school’s mascot is a mountain lion for God’s sake.

57. For colder weather, wrap yourself in this Penn State quilt.

Yes, it’s a real Penn State patchwork of a quilt. Mostly blue an white with a dash of pink here and there.

58. You can always get a swig of beer in this Illini glass.

Though the logo might seem rather offensive to Native Americans. But it’s well painted.

59. Grace your door with a wreath from the University of Oklahoma.

Their mascot are the Sooners, by the way. Because Oklahoma’s called the “Sooner State.”

60. For a more rustic look, a Notre Dame wreath of burlap would be nice.

Contains the school logo along with blue and gold ribbons. So lovely but not too flashy.

61. No Tallahassee couch should be without this Florida State pillow.

This one has the Seminole logo along with other things pertaining to Florida State. Bet it took someone a lot of time to make this.

62. Light up your humble abode with this Hawkeye bottle lamp.

This one contains some melted stones for a more varied look. But it certainly exudes Iowa pride.

63. An crocheted Auburn throw blanket can certainly drape your couch.

As you can see here. Probably took whoever made this countless hours. But for a die-hard Auburn fan, it was worth it.

64. Keep warm while watching the big game with a crocheted Ohio State afghan.

This one has zigzags of red, white, and gray. Strange that I didn’t put a lot of Ohio State stuff on here so far.

65. A Kentucky Wildcat fire pit table goes great with any stone patio.

The table itself consists of tiles you’d find at any hardware store. Though I’m sure if I’d want a bonfire to be on the table. Looks like an accident waiting to happen.

66. Raise your baby to love the Vols with these Tennessee bibs.

The Ts are made out of orange bandanas. Not exactly up to par, but it works.

67. An Aggies fan can’t possibly do without a Texas A&M desk.

It’s painted black with the letters on top. Will probably fetch a pretty penny on Etsy if for sale.

68. Bet you’ll find a lot of comfort in this LSU chair.

Sure it might be made out of wood painted yellow and purple. But at least it has cushions on the seat and back.

69. Nothing makes a Buckeye fan proud like this Ohio State wreath.

It basically resembles the school’s logo. Though I have to admit, the buckeye leaf does bear some resemblance to the pot leaf. Sorry if I happen to notice it.

70. A simple burlap Wichita State wreath does just fine.

It’s wrapped in yellow with the WSU letters and a bow. Lovely, yet so simply made.

71. You’d almost swear these LSU bottle lights glow.

Each one contains the LSU Tiger logo along with yellow and purple stripes. And each is lovely in its own way.

72. You could almost see the Georgia Bulldogs play through this window.

However, it’s actually painted onto a window frame. Though I’m sure any Bulldogs fan would want it.

73. You’d almost think these Kansas State Wildcat flower pot dolls were made for each other.

In a way, they kind of are. Though even I have to admit that they’re really adorable.

74. No Mountaineer fan can possibly do without this WVU rag wreath.

Most of this consists of rags of blue and gold. Like the WV gold and blue ribbons though.

75. This Crimson Tide dog bed is fit for any Alabama pooch.

Man, that looks nicer than a lot of dog beds. Pooch looks as if it has its own throne.

76. Celebrate the season with this Illini Christmas tree.

It’s tall and orange with blue tinsel all around. And yes, you have to love the lights and baubles.

77. No Wolverine porch should be complete without this Michigan lawn chair.

Yes, it’s another Michigan lawn chair. But it’s a different design with a yellow “M” on the back.

78. A Nittany Lion home can’t possibly go without this Penn State burlap wreath.

This one has the Penn State logo in the center. Still, this great for any rustic Penn State home.

79. For Mardi Gras, you can’t go wrong with this LSU wreath.

It’s a purple and gold decomesh wreath with a golden mask. And the LSU letters are all in purple.

80. A home for the Fightin’ Irish should deck their home with this Notre Dame decomesh wreath.

Yes, it has the Notre Dame words and logo at the center. But it has a gold and blue decor which resemble flowers.

NCAA College Athlete Exploiting Merchandise (Second Edition)

8f579b33e91985b014b1c45c6f1b4f73

Now it’s on to college merchandise. You know the overpriced stuff colleges and the NCAA makes money on but the athletes don’t really get any royalties off of. Most of the time you will find college sports crap sold at campus stores. But if it’s Division I, then you’ll find plenty of local stores carrying college stuff at a cheaper price. And even then, it’ll carry the teams most popular in the area. For instance, the Wal Mart stores in my area usually sell Division I merchandise pertaining to Pitt, Penn State, and WVU since they’re nearby and the most popular. Most of the NCAA sports crap you might see usually consists of apparel with the school’s logo on it along with a few other things. But most of the time, colleges will sell their fan anything that will give them money, no matter how ridiculous. And as I can testify, there is not shortage of collegiate sports craziness in merchandise. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of weird college merch from the NCAA.

  1. Be a Fightin’ Irish on the grill with this Notre Dame burger flipper.

That way, you can demonstrate your grilling skills against Touchdown Jesus. Then again, you might get a better flipper at a lower price.

2. A Notre Dame drag along cooler always keeps food and drinks fresh.

Comes with pockets and a zipper. Great for storing cans at a tailgate party. Could probably buy a cheaper plain version at Wal Mart.

3. This Penn State crock pot is great for tailgating fare.

After all, you need something to keep the chili warm in Happy Valley. Though a plain one works better at a lower price.

4. For a more rustic setting, may I suggest this Notre Dame basket cooler?

Man, seems like they have all kinds of cooler types out there. Can’t really understand this one.

5. Enjoy your ride to the stadium in this Mizzou Tiger car.

That might be school property and thus not for sale. Still, since it’s helmet shape, I’ll put it on the post.

6. For long travels, hop along the Kentuck U Express.

Sure it’s not exactly merchandise. But it’s one of the last things you’d expect to see a Kentucky Wildcats logo on.

7. Nothing makes your steak taste great like Penn State steak sauce.

Yes, it exists. I know it’s ridiculous. But I’m sure it’s the only steak sauce you can use at State College.

8. At Columbus, Ohio State high heeled shoes are the latest craze

Though you’d more likely want to wear sneakers at the stadium. Just because you’ll do a lot of walking.

9. Carry your drinks to the game with this Penn State bottle tote.

Has room for 6. Though you can also carry them in a cooler which would be even better.

10. Stun the stadium with these University of Kentucky jeweled flip flops.

I don’t see the point of these. They seem more appropriate for summer, which isn’t during football or basketball season.

11. No man cave is complete without a line of Pitt lamps.

Or woman cave, not that we should judge. Comes in wood, brass, and metal.

12. Enjoy the big game with this WVU end table cooler.

Now you can put it on a stand and use it to get drinks while you watch the game. You can probably find one cheaper at Wal Mart without the logo.

13. Now you can serve drinks at your own Florida Gator bar.

Comes with an umbrella, cooler, and stools. Great for a tailgating beach party but not near actual gators.

14. Grace your holidays with this Michigan State Santa on Sousaphone.

And I see there’s an elf inside the Sousaphone. Of course, in marching band, he’ll have to find some way to get around the presents.

15. If you want to know the time, humidity and temperature, perhaps this clock from Penn State can show you.

Yes, it’s a rather sophisticated clock. But you can probably get it cheaper if you remove the Nittany Lion logo.

16. Support your Hawkeyes with an Iowa dog sweater.

Because this isn’t about keeping your dog warm. It’s about you projecting your tastes to your dog.

17. Keep warm at Happy Valley with this Nittany Lion hat.

That looks terrifying and more or less resembles a bear. But it’s said to be rather fuzzy.

18. You can’t have a tailgate party without some Penn State salsa.

Penn State salsa? Seriously? What’s with using college logos for foot? Because that’s utterly ridiculous.

19. Every Penn State fan must have this commemorative desk statue of Joe Paterno.

On second thought, chances are he knew at least something about what Jerry Sandusky was doing. So maybe you might want to reconsider.

20. Enjoy hours of fun with some Notre Dame foosball.

Like anyone needs a foosball table anyway. Seriously, you’re better off spending your money on something else.

21. Raise a glass to your college team with your Penn State wine glass.

Even has indictors to gauge your mood by how much you drink. Beware if it’s almost full.

22. This Notre Dame holder will keep your pool sticks in check.

I’m sure a regular one would be cheaper. Besides, seems more suited for a bar.

23. The birds will be mighty fine with this Ohio State birdhouse.

Though the birds won’t find any buckeye nuts here. Just seed.

24. Your little one would love to curl up with this light up Oregon Duck.

Yes, I’m sure it makes a cuddly plushie which lights the room with stars and the logo. But the Oregon Ducks still have a mascot that resembles Donald Duck from Disney.

25. Keep warm during the winter with a pair of Nittany Lion mittens.

Okay, those look kind of creepy. Seriously, Penn State, how about gloves that just have the logo. I think everyone would be fine with that.

26. Kick back and relax in the great outdoors in this LSU bench.

It’s in purple and yellow for the Tigers. And it’ll certainly grab attention from onlookers.

27. A fairy princess should always have her WVU wand and crown.

Guess the NCAA will do anything to appeal to young girls. Though given that WVU is home to the Mountaineers, denim dress seems more appropriate.

28. Penn State cuff links make any suit look flashy.

Though they might seem unprofessional at a business meeting. So perhaps they’d be better as a collector’s item.

29. You can always be comfortable at the office in an LSU swivel chair.

Kind of loud colors for office furniture. Maybe better suited for a home office.

30. This Pitt pet bed is the ultimate den for your 4-legged friend on March Madness.

Though Pitt men’s basketball hasn’t been doing too well lately. Though that’s a nice replica of the Petersen your dog will ultimately destroy.

31. Always decorate for the occasion with some WVU holiday flags.

Got two for Christmas and one for Halloween and the 4th of July. Strange one of them doesn’t depict a burning couch.

32. Spend evenings lounging around this Ohio State campfire pit.

Great for the well made patio. Has a big “O” in the middle to indicate where to light the fire.

33. A wheeled cooler is perfect for cooling drinks for Florida State fans.

This one looks like it was made. But make sure to put ice in there first.

34. For Christmas, you can’t do without a set of Arizona Wildcats Nutcrackers.

Since when do they have nutcrackers for college teams? This is crazy. At least a Ohio State one would make more sense.

35. Be the hit on campus in this Ohio State car.

Resembles a car from Hot Wheels. But looks pretty real. Not sure why anyone would buy it.

36. Enhance your living room with this Mizzou Tiffany lamp.

Sure itm ight seem a bit old fashioned. But if you like your Tigers enough, you’ll probably want it.

37. Spice up your food with some Penn State hot sauce.

Since there’s nothing spicier than watching your Nittany Lions. And anything you put your hot sauce on.

38. Dress your little leprechaun in these Fightin’ Irish bootie socks.

Yes, show your baby your love for the Irish and harmful Irish stereotypes at the same time. Yeah, Notre Dame needs to sort out its priorities.

39. Raise a toast to the Vols with this Tennessee chalice.

Okay, it’s more of a decorative item than an actual cup. And it stands on wood. Still, I find it rather tacky.

40. Tee up on the links with your Nittany Lion golf clubs.

That being said, golf is lame sport for rich people. Even if in the Nittany Lion guise. And I think this set costs an arm and a leg.

41. This Cinci Bearcat theater seat brings great comfort in your home.

Though it’s not as great as watching it on a recliner. Also, probably costs more than a La-Z-Boy.

42. Nothing makes stuffed pretzels irresistible like Penn State dipping mustard.

Dipping mustard? From a jar? Why can’t you just squeeze the mustard from the bottle and put it on your plate? That’s what most people do.

43. Take a cue at this Ohio State pool table.

Pool tables are already expensive and hard to move. I suppose this one would cost an arm and a leg.

44. Your living room is never complete without an Iowa Hawkeyes glass table.

It has a glass top and a shelf that resembles a football field. Very breakable and very expensive. Don’t recommend it for families with young children.

45. Kick back on the porch in your very own Ohio State swing.

Even contains cup holders so you can enjoy a drink or two. Though it’s not like the swing in my backyard at all.

46. Fire it up with your very own University of Kentucky grill.

After all, what’s a game without anything barbequed? Of course, a non-Kentucky grill would be cheaper.

47. Boise State Wing Dip is perfect for any Bronco wings.

Yes, Boise State’s team is the Broncos. I know it’s confusing since they share the same colors as Denver. But there you are.

48. Go to the game in style at Baton Rouge in an LSU Tiger bus.

Okay, it’s more of a trailer or RV. But it’s in purple and yellow stripes. Yikes!

49. Spend hours of fun with these Oregon video game controllers.

Both are green with the Oregon logo. You could probably get regular video game controls for less money though.

50. A WVU glass set goes great in your china closet.

Yes, the glass is pretty. But c’mon, most of you would rather have your bottles with flowers than a WVU logo. Yet, I could be wrong.

51. Keep your grill safe from the elements with this Notre Dame cover.

Then again, you can get a grill cover at Lowe’s or Home Depot for cheap. Doesn’t have to have the Notre Dame logo on it.

52. Got loose change? How about an Ohio State piggy bank.

Has a buckeye nut necklace and is decked with leaves. Got to like the red snout and ears.

53. Have hours of fun with some Notre Dame Yahtzee.

Has the Fightin’ Irish logo on the box. So you can roll the dice in the cup as long as you’d like.

54. Keep your golf clubs safe with these Ohio State covers.

Yes, I know I put the Penn State golf set before. But this one just shows the covers with the Ohio State logo.

55. Serve some drinks for guests with this University of Kentucky dispenser.

It’s a small ceramic striped container with stripes and a spotted lid. Not sure if it holds much of anything.

56. Watch the game together in these Penn State couples’ chairs.

Because the couple who watches games together stays together. Also, “Ms.” would’ve been more appropriate than “Mrs.”

57. Entice your guests at the big game with this Ohio State casserole dish.

Or “Game Day Kickasserole” which is better than casserole to some people. But please, a plain one would be cheaper.

58. An LSU baby should sleep in a crib like this.

This one has stadium padding. Think this is kind of pushing it. But I’m sure some fans would want to put their baby in this.

59. No Louisiana garden should be without a LSU bird bath.

It’s just a dish with a stand. Sure it looks pretty. But wait until the birds start shitting on it.

60. Eat your snacks while you watch the Mountaineers with this WVU chair tray.

Kind of wish I had one myself. Though I wouldn’t watch sports games using it. And it wouldn’t have a sports logo on it.

61. Keep your drinks cold with your very own Penn State mini fridge.

There are a few of these in different styles. But this one has the name on the side.

62. Ring in the holiday spirit with an LSU Santa hat.

It’s purple with the LSU letters and tiger logo along with holly. Great for any fan of LSU for the holidays.

63. Drape your big screen in your patio room with a Florida Gators cover.

Has an elastic band you can put in the back. Though why one would want a TV set near their patio is beyond me.

64. You can play all you want with this WVU toy train engine.

Though I’d suggest you go with Thomas the Tank Engine instead. Since your kids would prefer the trains from that franchise. This seems more what the parents would want.

65. Enjoy a time outside with this Florida State Seminoles picnic basket cooler.

It’s a combination between a cooler and a picnic basket. So you can have the best of both worlds, I guess.

66. Welcome the holidays with a UCLA stocking.

Try hanging that on your fireplace. Sure it’s not exactly what some expect. But I’m sure UCLA fans would want it.

67. Brand your steak with a Nittany Lion touch.

Yes, now you can brand your steak with Penn State. Like it’s really necessary. Not.

68. Proudly show off your school pride with a Baylor onesie.

Guy seems to be so proud of himself. Though I have no idea what to think of a garment I think is more appropriate on babies.

69. Enjoy hours of fun with this Alabama dart board.

Oh, it’s a dart board. Thought it was a pair of cabinet doors when I used one for my NFL merchandise post. That’s certainly makes me feel dumb now.

70. Carry your things to the game in this Michigan adventure wagon.

Okay, it’s not suited for a stadium. But you can fold it up and take it with you.

71. Carry your things from the store in this Michigan shopping bag.

Bet it comes with insulation to keep your food cool until you put it in the fridge. Great to take with you to Aldi.

72. Can’t make a fine steak without this Penn State rub.

Yes, they have Penn State steak rub. However, you can basically make your own since most recipes include a rub of some kind.

73. Keep your room lit with this University of Kentucky lava lamp.

Since when do lava lamps have to do with sports? Those two don’t seem to go together for some reason.

74. Kick back on your very own big blue Kentucky couch.

It’s a suede couch with the UK logo. But even though you might want a couch like this, it’s unlikely you’d buy one.

75. Enjoy your snacks in your very own University of Illinois snack dispenser.

And it’s shaped like a football helmet just in time for the season. Chips on top. Everything else is on the face mask.

76. Have your little one take their first steps in these Tar Heel booties.

Yes, these are cute. But regular booties are just as adorable. And cheaper.

77. For your pool party, you can’t go without a University of Illinois cooler floatie.

It’s even inflatable with cup holders. Still, why would you want to use drinks in the pool? That’s just nothing short of unthinkable to me.

78. Put your tailgating fare on this Penn State table.

It’s an interesting shape with the logo. Not sure if I’d want it in my home though. Since it’s not really my taste.

79. Store your candy in these Penn State Pez dispensers.

Each one has a topper of a football with a Penn State logo. Yet, the candy is inedible.

80. If you want a basket and a cooler, this piece from Notre Dame is for you.

Yes, it has the Notre Dame logo with a basket weave. Great for picnics and tailgating.

College Sports Fans Dressed in School Spirit Attire (Second Edition)

WIN_20170825_11_40_20_Pro

Here am I in my March of the Bearcats polo and Saint Vincent College basketball T-shirt.

As the school year begins so does the season of college sports. In particularly football. Though you’re bound to find plenty of students and alumni cheering in the stands on game day, many of these schools have fans far beyond that, especially if it’s a Division I university that makes loads of money from exploiting their student athletes. But now’s not the season to talk about that since it’s more suited for a March Madness conversation. Anyway, when it comes to posts to college and NFL, I kind of prefer doing the college ones. Mostly because you have way more than 32 Division I colleges across the country, many with a lot more interesting team names. Not to mention, a lot of the Division I college teams tend to be in uncharted territory for me. Yet, it’s not unusual for Americans to prefer their college teams over their pro teams. Mostly because the college teams are much closer to where they live, particularly in the South and in the heartland. And yes, many of the fans can be quite crazy, which is where I come in. Thus, for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of college sports fans. Most of them are from Division I, by the way.

  1. Apparently, the University of North Carolina is the No. 1 college for smurfs.

One of them even has blue hair. And both have a footprint on their shirts.

2. Seems like Boston College has a party school reputation.

What the hell are drunk Bert and Ernie doing here? Seriously, that doesn’t set a very good example to young children.

3. Seems like we have a colorful show of characters at Texas Tech.

One of them has a Minecraft head. One is all checks. While the others, let’s not get into that.

4. Speaking of Boise State, how about checking out these guys in their striped overalls?

And yes, they’re all in blue and orange from their hair to their toes. A couple even have fros.

5. Auburn is the place you can really be a Tiger.

Okay, it’s mostly face paint. But you get the idea. And yes, the fangs are fake.

6. At Ohio State, someone must be bucco for the Buckeyes.

Yet, the Buckeye guy on his head is a bit of the top. Also, what’s with the rose necklace. Oh, I get it.

7. For the Florida State Seminoles, you got two superheroes and a line of country western chorus girls.

You might remember the superheroes from last year. But the women with Seminole tops are a different story.

8. At Oklahoma State, this Viking’s helmet has its horns upside down.

That’s not to say he kind of resembles an Oompah Loompah. Also, note his friend with the spiky orange hair.

9. Apparently, the red men go for the Utes.

Okay, that’s a very racist depiction of Native Americans. And you want to know why they don’t like when colleges appropriate their culture into their athletics programs.

10. At North Carolina, basketball season is a time for blue hair.

Though their wigs are more or less made from Easter grass. Also, the basketball hats are hilarious.

11. There’s no bull about these cows from the University of Maryland.

Okay, they’re not technically cows since they certainly have no udders. Though you might want to steer clear of them for now.

12. Behold, the golden boy from USC.

Interesting he’s wearing a shiny gold speedo. Yet, to be fair, he doesn’t look quite bad. Yet, don’t tell that to the woman next to him.

13. You’d almost call this guy all pinned up for West Virginia University.

Note that he’s wearing coveralls over his jersey. Is supposed to be dressed as a mountaineer, miner, or what?

14. At the University of South Carolina, you’ll find a line of guys saluting their gamecocks.

Okay, it’s mostly body paint. But at least these guys didn’t paint their faces because that would be bad.

15. Even Santa is a huge fan of Ohio State.

However, he’s also with bald guy with a painted face and a guy with a nut necklace and weird hair. And yes, even Santa has some nuts on him.

16. With their hats, these Oregon Ducks fans are totally pumped.

One of them even has drinks on his hat and Hulk hands. And their school has a mascot resembling Donald Duck.

17. This guy really wants his Florida Gators to crush the Crimson Tide.

It’s on his hat by the way. Yes, I know it’s kind of crazy. But at least it’s creative.

18. At LSU, this man’s loyalty to his Tigers is never in question.

His way of supporting his Tigers is another story. Seriously, what’s with the body paint question mark?

19. As far as face paint is concerned, these faces have some very interesting patterns.

Indeed, these are Oregon Ducks fans. But one has a zigzag face. The other’s got checkers.

20. You might find this banana appealing if you come from Arizona State.

Yes, I know he looks pretty weird, especially with the sunglasses and banana costume. But he sure knows how to get attention.

21. You may think clowns and Stormtroopers would be at odds unless it’s the Arizona Wildcats.

One guy’s wearing a clown wig and suit. The other is a an Imperial Stormtrooper who probably won’t hit anything.

22. Speaking of the University of Arizona, seems like they might be on the Dark Side of the Force.

And the Dark Lord of the Sith has decided to go casual. Not to mention, paint his helmet red and blue.

23. Apparently, someone’s into Pirates of the Caribbean at Arizona State.

Wonder if he feels cool in his Jack Sparrow hat and wig. However, I don’t think it’s helping.

24. I believe we have a couple of tiger sharks at Auburn.

It’s a takeoff from Katie Perry’s Super Bowl performance. But these have stripes for the Auburn Tigers. Kind of ridiculous but fun.

25. This Baylor fan wanted his beard to match his outfit.

The beard is made from yarn to disguise his discontent for how his team’s doing. And to match his outfit.

26. You’d be scared out of your mind to find these guys at Boise State.

Think of their costumes as a mix between the Chippendales and Saw. Not sure what the two have to do with each other.

27. You’d almost think this Arizona Wildcat fan’s head is bursting with fireworks.

Though it’s mostly a foam mohawk with red, white, and blue stuff coming out of it. But yes, it’s utterly ridiculous.

28. This guy’s all red for his Crimson Tide.

You’d think he spent too much time in the hot sun. But it’s just body paint.

29. As skeletons, these Georgia Tech women are here to frighten you.

I hope these women are Mexicans. Because that’s in the style for the Day of the Dead. And Mexicans don’t like seeing that part of their culture appropriated, especially on Halloween.

30. At Brigham Young, the Hulk shows his support.

Or is it the Abominable Snowman? Such costume in blue gets me so mixed up.

31. At the University of Georgia body painting and clown wigs go hand in hand.

Well, they have red paint to spell out Georgia. But the clown wigs are mystery to me.

32. Apparently, you’ll find a blue Guy Fieri at Boise State.

And he’s holding up a hammer with flaming red hair. Not sure why.

33. At Oklahoma State, this cowboy supports his team in the most country way.

Well, to be fair, cowboys did pass through Oklahoma. But not in body paint and a foam hat.

34. This woman will go all out for her Crimson Tide.

Apparently, body paint is said to protect you from indecent exposure. Yet, the elephant certainly fits.

35. You’d almost think these Florida State Seminole fans were made for each other.

They paint themselves in dark red and gold and don’t have much on. Seriously, the woman is in a bra and undies.

36. This Sun Devils fan has impressive hair from Arizona State.

Seems to have the Arizona Sun Devils logo right on his hair. Wonder how he gets through a doorway.

37. Apparently, these two guys are a bit sheepish on the chest.

Well, their mascot is a ram. Yet, painting a sheep on your chest, really?

38. Looks like Boba Fett is a Gators fan.

He even has a cape and shoulder pads on. Hope he doesn’t get sucked in by a sarlacc any time soon.

39. Apparently, you’ll find a spotted horse and two glitter guys at a Seminole game.

Now that’s bound to distract people. The horse is especially freaky. Not sure why anyone would want to paint their bodies for their sports team.

40. Speaking of Florida State, this super fan is super pumped.

Sure she may be dressed as a superhero. But today she’s cheering her heroes in the stands.

41. These University of Georgia fans are all spiked up.

Well, spikes on the shoulder pads. And all have makeup on their faces. One looks like Jigsaw.

42. At Oklahoma University it’s all in the hats.

Of course, this is where the wind blows sweeping on the plains. So they better hold on to their hats.

43. You may not want to be with this masked mob at Gonzaga.

They’re definitely there for March Madness since Gonzaga got pretty far in the NCAA tournament. One of these has horns.

44. No one’s a match for this Iowa Hawkeyes clown.

Let’s hope this scary clown induces nightmares for the other team. Though I’m sure anyone who looks won’t be able to sleep after the game.

45. You can never wear enough traffic cones to support the Kentucky Wildcats.

Didn’t know you could fit that many cones on shoulder pads. Also, doesn’t look too happy.

46. You don’t need to paint your body if you’re a fan of LSU.

Sometimes an electric or safety razor will do. Though I don’t recommend anyone try it. Seriously, just don’t.

47. This LSU Tiger is really into the game on the field.

Doesn’t hurt that he’s wearing a gold and purple robe. Sunglasses and helmet aren’t too bad either.

48. Take a look at that LSU cheerleader.

Yes, I know it’s a guy who doesn’t look great in a cheerleader outfit. But he looks pretty hilarious.

49. At Marshall, you’ll often find a bison headed man in the stands.

After all, they’re known for the Thundering Herd in West Virginia. That and the movie We Are Marshall.

50. At the University of Miami, this guy’s part of the West End Zone Crue.

After all, he’s doing it for his Hurricanes. You know wearing the outlandish glasses and bling.

51. For this Hurricanes fan, it’s always about time.

Here he has an orange hoplite helmet with a green plume. Also has spikes on his shoulder pads.

52. This Transformer always goes for the Miami Hurricanes.

And I see he has a green and orange helmet with white shoulder pads. And no, he doesn’t turn into a car.

53. Apparently, Miami and Florida State fans can exist side by side.

Doesn’t hurt that both of them are dressed like Super Mario Brothers. Yet, I guess their princess is in another castle.

54. This guy goes full bat mask for his Michigan Wolverines.

He even has Michigan glasses and a megaphone with bumper stickers. Guess anything for the team.

55. Seems like if you want to support Michigan State, you got to have green hair.

You’d also want pairs of Spartan glasses, too. Yeah, weird right?

56. Even Gumby is a fan of Michigan State.

And here he is with a couple of guys in green. Yeah, I can see where this is going.

57. This creepy clown wants you to support the Michigan Wolverines or else.

Another creepy clown under a ski mask. Guaranteed to haunt your dreams. Sleep tight, sweetie.

58. Missouri Tiger fans support breast cancer awareness.

They’re all in pink with tiger stripes. Though the women are wearing pink shirts for obvious reasons.

59. Seems like many of these Navy guys are real ship heads.

So they actually have these foam hats. Though I prefer the other hats.

60. I’m sure some guys will get a kick out of these LSU Tiger women.

I see they painted themselves like tigers with bras meant to blend in. They also have the tiger headbands with ears.

61. You might want to check with this mouse from Syracuse.

I know this mouse is from a cartoon, but I can’t recall it. Yet, I see sports fan dress up as this character on Pinterest.

62. She cheers for the Syracuse Orange even if she didn’t make the squad.

She has pom poms in her hair and hands. Seems like this was for March Madness.

63. Mario doesn’t seem to like how this Texas Christian game is going.

Too bad Mario doesn’t have access to mushrooms so he can get bigger and shoot fire balls. Maybe that would help TCU even though that would be cheating.

64. Didn’t know that the University of Tennessee has fans out of this world.

Sure it’s not a real spacesuit since those things are incredibly heavy. But he’s nevertheless here for the Volunteers.

65. These masked men come to see the game for Texas Tech.

One of them has a black Spider Man mask. But the other masks remind you of a horror movie villain.

66. This super squad of fans will not let the Tar Heels down.

One of them even has a Batman logo with UNC. A woman has a high hat. And they’ve all painted themselves blue.

67. Best to go all orange and stripes to support Auburn.

All he’s wearing on top are shoulder pads. Not sure if he’s comfortable.

68. Apparently, USC fans start out young.

Makes you wonder what these kids will be like when they’re older. But they’re kind of adorable with fake hair and body paint.

69. I bring you a real USC Trojan.

Well, he’s dressed like a hoplite from the Trojan War. Though it’s a bit over the top.

70. My, those must be large spikes.

Sure he’s going for the Utah Utes. But at least he’s not as bad with the cultural appropriation.

71. This man is all golden for his Notre Dame Fightin’ Irish.

Well, he’s certainly flashy with a bowtie and flower boa. Least he’s not dressed as a leprechaun.

72. One has to go orange for the Tennessee Volunteers.

Kind of resembles an Oompah Loompah here. But that’s the magic of body paint for you.

73. This Husky woman turns out sparking for Washington University.

Yes, she has to show up in sparkling pants and a husky hat. Yet, you should see the guy in a yellow coat and plaid pants.

74. This purple horse always cheers for his Washington Huskies.

I know he looks silly, especially with a purple horse’s head. Oh, how far fans go for their team.

75. These Mountaineer fans are going to rock n’ roll all night.

Of course, they had to paint their faces as members of KISS. But at least they didn’t don the wigs.

76. This fan from Miami has a bit of a skull face.

Not sure if it does the trick. But the hat and polo don’t do that look wonders.

77. No matter how you see it, her hands make a U.

For University of Miami of course. Her U things can also be used as oven mitts by the way.

78. At Stanford University, this Cardinal fan’s an evergreen supporter.

Not sure why the Stanford mascot is a tree. But this guy really has his school spirit in him.

79. At Clemson, these Tiger women have put on their stripes.

Unlike the LSU fans, they’re not covering their faces. But yes, this is ridiculous.

80. DCU women always go for Syracuse.

You see, Catwoman and Wonder Woman may not always get along. But they can still be friends.

81. If you’re for Purdue, you just have to wear the flashy robes.

Well, if you want to be seen, that seems to be the way to go. Though they’re rooting for their Boilermakers in strange attire.

82. At USC it helps to stand like a real Trojan.

Uh, this isn’t 300. Besides, Trojans didn’t fight in the buff either. It’s probably more appropriate for this guy to look like this when he’s wearing a Trojan on his sword. Though his abs aren’t all that bad.

83. Here we have a warrior at Oklahoma State showing love for his Pokes.

Yes, he’s in a toga and Roman helmet. I know it doesn’t make sense. And no, I don’t understand why he’s wearing gloves.

84. For some people, a Florida Gators game is a family tradition.

They’re wearing jerseys, spiked shoulder pads, and dyed hair. The dad has his colored blue.

85. For golden masked me, it’s always the University of Toledo Rockets.

Not familiar with that school. But you have to think these guys are nuts to wear masks and wigs like that.

86. There’s strong and then there’s Army strong. And then there’s these guys.

And these soldiers have their team spelled out in yellow body paint. Not sure if it’s got on their uniforms.

87. At LSU, she likes to get into the Tiger’s skin.

Well, at least she managed a photo op with the mascot. Though at least it’s better than body paint.

88. It’s very clear that the Founding Fathers are behind old Virginia Tech.

You’d think they’d be for the University of Virginia which Thomas Jefferson founded. Just saying.

89. Batgirl always goes for Boston College.

She even has a flag to show for it. Though the uniform does appear a bit 1960ish.

90. For these Cowboys, Mizzou Tigers are all the way.

And they’re shirtless, too. Still, not sure if Missouri had any cowboys. Doesn’t seem to make sense.

91. Best to wear the team you love on your back.

And it seems like this person has to do the Batman pose. Fair enough.

92. At Michigan State, the Spartan fans who go to games together, stay together.

And it seems they went with the striped overalls and the Spartan hats. Not sure if I like that.

93. You have to wonder if this Seminole fan is being serious.

After all, he’s dressed as the Joker. Even has his suit despite his goatee.

94. This group of Elvises salute Ole Miss.

After all, Elvis was from the great state of Mississippi. And one of them even dons Ole Miss colors.

95. At Oregon, everyone’s committed to diversity.

For they accept Mexicans and anyone with weird colored hair. As long as it’s green, yellow, or both.

96. Didn’t know you could find Vikings in Arizona.

Of course you can’t. But that doesn’t stop this guy from wearing a helmet with horns. Even if most Vikings didn’t.

97. It’s al zebra striped with this Washington Huskies fan.

And yes, he even has a wrestling belt and husky shirt on him. Yet, he’s clearly kind of flashy in purple.

98. It helps if you arrive in a cape at LSU.

I see his cape is made from duct tape. And that he has his chest painted.

99. All this Nebraska Husker wants to do is watch the game.

And yes, he has a corncob on his head and his face painted. Kind of creepy but he doesn’t bite.

100. My, this Oklahoma State Cowboys fan has a small hat and a large mustache.

Yes, his stache his so huge, you can’t even see his mouth. But how he keeps that hat on his head, I have no idea.

Gather Round All Ye Lords and Ladies to Marvel at These Magnificent Costumes of the Ye Olde Renaissance Festival (Third Edition)

New-York-Renaissance-Faire.jpg

Renaissance Festival season is back in southwestern Pennsylvania with the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival starting on August 26th and running through weekends in September and Labor Day. So anyone interested might want to get into their LOTR and Game of Thrones costumes, get a purse full of cash, and enjoy the fantasy! Of course, you’ll often find a mishmash of costumes ranging from medieval to 1600s which include royalty, pirates, fairies, Vikings, gypsies, mythological creatures, and others. And all in a pseudo-historical and overpriced event suited for 21st century eyes. Because had you been at a festival during the Renaissance you probably wouldn’t want to be there. Not because they didn’t serve turkey legs since nobody was settling in America at that point. Well, there was Spanish colonization and Roanoke but let’s just you don’t want to there either. And let’s just say the Renaissance was far dirtier, bloodier, and uglier than what these renfests show you. Call it a theme park version if you will since the primary aim for a Renaissance festival is entertainment. And yes, you’ll see plenty of people show up in their outfits. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you another assortment of Renaissance Festival costumes.

  1. It takes a little peasant to hold up a big frame.

Well, the frame is more like big for her. But sometimes size is irrelevant.

2. A satyr should always stand in leafy glory.

And we should all agree that his fall look is fabulous. Then again, fall leaves are among the most colorful.

3. You’d almost mistake this kid for a little barbarian.

The costume mainly consists of torn clothing and a fur cape. But the velcro shoes give an anachronistic impression.

4. Simple dresses and straw hats can do for peasant styles.

After all, regular Renaissance women weren’t wearing lavish gowns to show off to everyone. So these will do fine.

5. Seems like we’ve come to a magic troll in the forest.

Then again, he seems like he could be a wizard. Perhaps Merlin’s brother Elsgarth who’s known to harass woodland creatures.

6. You can always enjoy a pint in a fancy hat.

You can also have a patched skirt and leather fanny pack to match. Of course, someone in Britain is probably laughing right now.

7. Sometimes brown can really do it for you.

You’d almost mistake this guy for the Sheriff of Nottingham. Except he wouldn’t be wearing that in the 12th century save in movies.

8. You can even get a Renaissance Festival dress in an infant size.

Though in the Renaissance, it’s likely both boys and girls would wear them. But not like this.

9. A fair lady can always turn heads in red.

Makes her appear like a villain in a Tudor drama. Bet she has a dagger hidden under her skirt.

10. A winter queen always wears a resplendent blue dress.

Though this doesn’t seem like the season for it. Then again, it might be the only time the Renaissance Festival comes to her hometown.

11. A sea beauty can always go with some blue hair.

She’s supposed to be dressed as a mermaid with a jeweled seashell bra. But a blue skirt is close enough.

12. A Scotsman must stand tall with an ax in his kilt.

Not bad with the leather top. But I wonder if he’s wearing anything underneath. Because you know what they all say about men in kilts.

13. Seems like this couple wanted to dress in something that matches with the landscape.

Well, not quite. The woman wears a sky blue dress. But they both look very beige to me.

14. When it gets cold, you might want some furs.

Apparently, the people of PETA are upset right now. But the fur is fake and part of a witch costume.

15. With fall fashion, you can’t beat the forest spirits.

I see we have an elf, an antler woman, and a woman in a leafy headdress. And yes, they aim to match the trees.

16. Beware of the man in the long leather mask.

You know the old plague doctor’s mask? Sure it’s not an authentic model. But it’ll protect him from the plague as well as a real one ever did. Not at all.

17. Any girl can be a warrior princess.

This one looks more like a Viking outfit. Not as fancy as a gown but practical. Hope she knows how to handle a sword.

18. Bet you didn’t expect to see a fairy decked in green.

She even wears fishnet stockings on her legs. But you have to check out her gold and green wings.

19. A Scottish lass must have some plaid on her.

After all, what’s Scottish pride without a tam and plaid? Besides, kilts are menswear.

20. A simple smock is fine for a forest spirit.

Because no fairy wants to be held down by a heavy Renaissance dress. Still, love the purple.

21. A fall fairy can sport rather gorgeous wings.

Seems like fall fairies are all the rage. She even wears a leafy headdress and rainbow tutu.

22. Any lady can stun in an elegant green.

Comes with long, wide sleeves and golden embroidery. Stunning and will probably break the bank.

23. A harp playing fairy is magical in magnificent purple.

Yes, these costumes can get quite elaborate. But I’m always a sucker for purple stuff. Love the skirt.

24. Not sure how anyone could play on two pipes at once.

Maybe the pipes are two different clefs. Then again, it goes with her fairy costume.

25. A peacock fairy is a wondrous sight.

Her outfit is covered in peacock feathers from top to bottom. Love it.

26. Who says a girl can’t go out in the woods by herself?

However, let’s hope the bow, arrows, and dagger are fashion accessories. Because using weapons in public shouldn’t be encouraged.

27. Apparently, someone’s a hit with the ladies.

Yes, that guy seems quite proud of himself being among women. I’m sure any of these would want him to open their bodice. Since they must be roasting in these dresses.

28. These lady pirates are always up for a beer.

Though real pirate ladies usually dressed as dudes to conceal their identities. So they wouldn’t be wearing lovely outfits like these.

29. I suppose this woman is supposed to be Mary, Queen of Scots.

If so, then I don’t think she’ll live happily ever after. Actually her whole life was a series of unfortunate events.

30. A peasant woman carries her things on her belt.

Because most 16th century dresses didn’t have pockets. And that’s why we have purses today.

31. I believe this barbarian relishes in making an entrance.

Had this one for at least a year or two. Wasn’t sure what to do with it until now. But you have to admire the guy’s mail and teeth helmet.

32. Is that a shaman or a witch doctor?

Yes, I know it looks cool. But the skulls seem to suggest a connotation with death and cannibalism for some reason.

33. Perhaps you might want to don a colorful princess gown.

This one is mostly red with loose sleeves and a yellow underskirt. The neckline is lined with gold.

34. A  long black bodice stands out in yellow and white.

Though it doesn’t seem laced very tightly. Then again, to each his own.

35. A man should always wear the right boots to match his pantaloons.

Okay, he’s wearing pants. But the rule applies. Also, check out those poofy sleeves.

36. You should be careful about walking in your own bare feet.

Uh, the floor is mulch and chances are this woman will come home to feet filled with splinters. For God’s sake, we have shoes for a reason.

37. One of these pirates has a pair of goggles ready for the adventure.

Yes, pirates might seem cool. But you wouldn’t want to be around a bunch of drunk guys on a wooden ship that smells like shit.

38. Peasant dress isn’t always as simple as it looks.

I’m sure this consists of several pieces of fabric. And it’s dirtied up for a more “authentic” look.

39. A guy looks like a fighter with spiky armor and helmet horns.

Though the most this knight will accomplish is putting someone else’s eye out. Looks baddass, by the way.

40. “Interesting that you humans have these Renaissance Festivals.”

Yes, I know Data’s from Star Trek TNG and has nothing to do with the Renaissance. Still, let’s pretend he’s in the Enterprise holosuite program.

41. Looks like we’ve come to a couple of fairies.

Not those kind of fairies. These have wings and flutter. One of them is a guy.

42. This woman has mail all over her.

Yes, her outfit is made of chain mail which was once used armor. Let’s hope it doesn’t freeze on her if it’s abnormally cold.

43. This fairy loves to deck her hair with flowers.

Yes, I know I’ve featured a lot of fairies on this post. But this one kind of stands out for me. Don’t know why.

44. On cold days, you might want to bundle up with feathers.

Then again, the feathered look might be a bit too much. But I love the feather mask.

45. If you should travel to the Renaissance Fair, I suppose you might prefer a 3 piece dress.

Just consists of a shirt, corset, and skirt. You can also add a garland if you want to.

46. How about a pint with this old warrior?

Kind of reminds you of a sage from some fantasy film. Of course, he must’ve spent a lot of time on his outfit.

47. Maybe you might want to see a fairy queen with a couple of entertainers.

I guess she’s with a jester and a troubadour. Jester also knows how to juggle.

48. This redhead is her own knight in shining armor.

She even has her own horse to show for it. Hope the mail doesn’t weigh her down.

49. This red-caped woman comes with her own bull horn.

That way if she runs into a wolf, she can blow into it and call for help. Then again, that horn might be used for gun powder.

50. I’m sure nobody could resist these 3 little swordsmen.

At least they’re playing with wooden swords. They’re also dressed he same, too.

51. This centaur has an unusual hairy chest.

You can see he has wheels on the back legs. And please don’t ask him how he goes to the bathroom.

52. This belly dancer has come to entrance you to her moves.

Interesting how her outfit goes with her pink hair. And I suppose she’s not wearing a midriff due to the weather.

53. A fairy should never go out without a flower dress.

She even has more flowers in the back. Must’ve taken her hours to get dressed in that. outfit.

54. Pardon me, or is that Captain Jack Sparrow?

Well, he almost resembles the Johnny Depp character. Even has the swagger.

55. Seems like a couple of Vikings invaded this Renaissance Festival.

Both have horned helmets which Vikings didn’t wear when on their boats. And there are obvious reasons for that.

56. She knows her way with a bow and arrow.

Helps if she wears a simple dress with a belt. Not sure how it helps her give a good aim though.

57. May I introduce you to the rainbow fairy?

She has rainbow wings and tutu. But her top is mostly white. So pretty.

58. Now this guy looks like a real lovable rogue.

He has a sword and his tunic with leather pants and boots. Simple yet effective.

59. Between these three, there isn’t much there.

Or rather on them. And yes, they’ll probably shiver at the end of September.

60. Now that’s some rather interesting armor.

Well, she has a couple of plates on her boobs. Though I particularly want to know whether she’s holding a knife or scepter in her hand.

61. You may even see an ogre or two at the Renaissance Faire.

I know the guy is supposed to be Shrek. But the woman doesn’t look like Fiona.

62. For a little princess a dress of pink and purple will do.

Of course, let’s hope she doesn’t go to the Renfest when it’s raining. Because she’s so adorable in it.

63. Nothing makes a soldier look badass like tacked leather.

Though that won’t protect you like chain mail and armor. But yes, it makes you think you’ll be great for Game of Thrones.

64. Didn’t think I’d see a green fairy in the winter.

Though she seems more suited for spring or summer. Also, how does she keep warm in the snow.

65. For this family, the Renaissance Festival doesn’t get better than this.

Yes, whole families attend this event every year. And this family came as a group of peasants.

66. My, we have a ragtag bunch of misfits.

Well, we have a satyr, two fairies, and a traveler. Love the parasol.

67. Go ahead, green fairy, try to look cute with your little wings.

For some reason, a lot of fairies wear green. Maybe it’s to blend in with the green in the forest.

68. These three gypsies have come with tambourines.

Well, at least two of them did. But you have to admire the girls’ colorful dresses.

69. Here we come to a Viking warrior woman all blinged out.

Yes, I know she doesn’t have much on her. Still, I believe she comes from the Nordic land of Las Vegas.

70. Apparently, this family of pirates are having a jolly time.

Note that most real pirates didn’t live past 30. Still, you can’t help but like their outfits.

71. These little fairies hope you enjoy the magic.

They could almost be the little versions of some of the fairies I showed on this post. And yes, they’re filled with magical cuteness.

72. You might enjoy the fun size version of the Three Musketeers.

Okay, they’re little boys dressed as the Three Musketeers. Yet, you can’t think they’re anything less than adorable.

73. Nothing can feast your eyes like a fairy peacock queen.

She has a peacock feather crown with butterfly wings. Love the feathers.

74. You’d almost think she has a face of an angel.

She’s said to be a fairy godmother. But I liken her to a living statue. Hope she doesn’t freak out anyone.

75. It won’t take long for you to recognize this jester in a parade.

After all, he’s clad in black and white while everyone else is in color. But he doesn’t seem to mind.

76. A beige and maroon dress certainly does impress.

I guess she’s one of the court ladies at the Renaissance Festival. Not sure who she’s supposed to be.

77.  This noble lady has come to the faire with her own maid.

Well, as far as I can tell by the outfits. But the one on the left looks more like a cook.

78. Apparently, she came to the Renaissance Festival looking for a man.

Then again, this was what women were supposed to do during the Renaissance. Though normally it would comprise of being married off to a guy your parents wanted you to be with. This is especially if they needed the money.

79. You’d almost think a demon came to town.

Yes, he seems like the Krampus But his wings and head are surely impressive.

80. For some, you might come across this noble soul.

Yes, it’s a dog dressed in Renaissance garb. I know what you’re thinking. But at least it’s not as fancy.

Not Licensed by the NFL Professional Football Craft Projects (Third Edition)

nfl-fan-map.jpeg.jpg

Now that I got the NFL merchandise done, it’s on to crafts, which might make the NFL very angry. Since I’m sure a lot of the stuff isn’t licensed and they’re rather particular on that. Nevertheless, while there are some fans who don costumes and buy tons of overpriced crap, there is a segment of fans who make things for themselves, Etsy, or Pinterest. And yes, NFL craft projects do exist. Just ask embroiderer and LA Rams linebacker Rosie Greer. Besides, there are plenty of women football fans and other men who like doing crafts. Still, the fan map is a bit off since the Raiders moved to Vegas while the Chargers and Rams moved to LA. But this was made years ago. This is one of the easier posts in my NFL bunch since I already have plenty saved from previous years. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of NFL crafts from the fans.

  1. May your New York Giants glass block always shine bright.

This one has a decal. Still, I haven’t put a lot of Giants stuff on my post for some reason. Maybe it’s because I don’t see much of it.

2. Nobody could resist this Pittsburgh Steelers flower pot guy.

Because he’s made of flower pots. But he has fake black and gold flowers for hair. So cute.

3. Any fan should enjoy this old timey Steeler sign.

As you can see, this is a wooden panel painted yellow with the Steelers name and logo. Great for any fancy house.

4. A Christian home always roots for the Houston Texans.

Okay, I’m kidding about that. But this is a Houston Texans cross.

5. An Indianapolis Colts bottle lamp can lighten up any game day.

It’s blue with silver ribbons. Mainly because the Colts’ colors are blue and white.

6. Grace your front door this season with an evergreen Baltimore Ravens wreath.

Even has purple lights. So you can even use it for Halloween and Christmas.

7. Show your love for your team with a New England Patriots charm bracelet.

Funny how it doesn’t contain a deflated football and a hidden camera. Because that’s what we remember the Patriots for.

8. A Seattle Seahawks stained glass bottle makes a fine gift.

Sure I had posts of similar bottles before. But it’s not meant for drinking. But great for display on a mantle.

9. No NFL home is complete without a Dallas Cowboys decomesh wreath.

It has a sparkly star in the center. Not to mention, you have to admire the blue and white ribbons.

10. For those Indiana proud, you might want to go for Colts palette.

After all, the Colts are the only NFL team in Indiana. And yes, it’s blue with a horseshoe on it.

11. For your game day, this Steelers tulle wreath will do quite nicely.

This one has black and gold tulle with some roses meant to resemble some of the stars in the logo. All in all, a gift for a true Steeler fan.

12. For a New Orleans Saints fan, Louisiana is black and white.

Well, also has a gold Fleur de Lis and “Who Dat.” And Louisiana is covered in a zigzag pattern.

13. This Green Bay Packers bottle light will keep your room lit during the game.

This stained glass bottle lamp is more artisically deisgned. But it nevertheless has a large “G” on it.

14. Cheer for your home team with these Seattle Seahawks pom poms.

These are made from tulle and ribbons. And yes, you can make wreaths from the same materials.

15. A burlap Indiana Colts wreath should make a fine addition to your home.

This one is in blue and white burlap with a Colts flag in the center. Perfect for a game day in Indianapolis.

16. These Pittsburgh Steeler snowmen are always a wintry delight.

These consists of small beams of snowmen with cloth Steeler hats. So cute.

17. Always keep warm with these crocheted Indianapolis Colts headbands.

Both are in blue and white. One has a horseshoe. The other has a flower with a football at the center.

18. A Baltimore Ravens bottle light always shines bright.

And to believe it has some lights with a Ravens logo on it. The purple straw bow makes a nice touch.

19. You’d almost mistake this for an old Atlanta Falcons sign.

Too bad that team lost at the last minute to the Patriots at the Super Bowl. Still, this is a nice looking sign.

20. Make your little girl into a Tennessee Titan fan with a dress like this.

She even has a flower on the front of it. So adorable.

21. Perhaps a simple Baltimore Ravens wreath will do.

This is a yarn wreath with a black bird and a black football. The banner flags give it some original character.

22. A Jacksonville Jaguars decomesh wreath always gives an impression.

This one even has gold letters and a leopard skin ribbon. Since jaguars are technically leopards. Though doesn’t help the Jaguars improve their stats much.

23. This Green Bay Packers quilt has football in the squares.

Though I might’ve thought cheese would look more amusing. Since their fans wear cheese hats.

24. No tailgate party is complete without a Denver Broncos runner.

No, I talking about that runner. This is a table runner. And yes, it’s orange on the borders.

25. There’s always a special treat in a Seattle Seahawks candy jar.

This one has an open bowl on top of a flower pot. And yes, the Seahawks logo is on there.

26. Look festive for the game with these New England Patriots hair bows.

Let’s just say the last time I’d root for the New England Patriots were when they dumped a bunch of tea in a harbor. Other than that, these bows are adorable.

27. No Seahawks could ever resist this metal sign.

Sure it doesn’t have the Seahawk colors. But bare metal will do in this case.

28. There’s nothing more fitting for an Indianapolis Colts fan than a horseshoe wreath.

Decorated with blue and white ribbons to match team colors. Always hang right side up.

29. Be a New England kitchen maven in this Patriots apron.

Because if you root for cheaters, you might as well dress with style when making the snacks. Like the ribbon though.

30. A little Steeler cap should contain a little fringe.

Well, it’s yarn and part of this crocheted hat to substitute for fake hair. But it’s so cute.

31. Dallas Cowboy fans will adore this glass star.

Not sure how big this is supposed to be. But the star shines in all its Dallas glory.

32. Cuddle up for the game with this New England Patriots plaid blanket.

Basically it’s a plaid flannel blanket with Patriots logos on it. Also, the plaid is in red, white, and blue.

33. For Jewish Patriots fans, may I suggest this crocheted yamulke?

Even has a 6 pointed star in the middle. Though I don’t know if rooting for that team makes one a mensch.

34. Perhaps Dallas Cowboys fans might prefer this yarn wreath.

Contains a blue felt star in the center. Perfect for any Dallas home.

35. During the game, you can always snuggle with a Miami Dolphins pillow.

And it looks so fuzzy, too. Wouldn’t mind curling up with it. But the Dolphins aren’t my team.

36. If you love the Indianapolis Colts, you’ll adore this horseshoe light.

Because the Colts’ logo is a horseshoe. But must be good electronics to pull this off.

37. For added effect, you might want to go with a Dallas Cowboy pumpkin or two.

Seems like I get a lot of Dallas Cowboy stuff on my NFL blog posts. But this looks quite superb with the ribbons.

38. For some, this Arizona Cardinals mosaic is a masterpiece.

Almost resembles the logo. Got to admire the detail. I’m sure it fetches a high price on Etsy.

39. This San Diego Chargers quilt is all squared.

This one contains squares of white, yellow, light blue, and dark blue. And the Chargers just moved to LA.

40. No Steeler fan can be without this metal hanging.

Yes, the Steelers certainly are men of steel. Though how much longer they can be with Big Ben is the question.

41. Seems like this Dallas Cowboys pot guy has a conifer head.

Yes, it’s another flower pot guy. But this one actually has branches and pinecones on its head. Adorable.

42. These Baltimore Ravens bottles are always part of the highlights.

These ones are painted with the logos. One is purple while two are gold.

43. There’s always something a bit twisted with this Pittsburgh Steeler wreath.

Yes, it’s a cloth wreath of black and gold. But I do like the shiny black bow behind the Steelers logo.

44. There’s a bright light in this Dallas Cowboy glass block.

Though I do like the decomesh bow decor on this. Still, they Cowboys aren’t America’s football team by a longshot.

45. This Detroit Lion is comprised of license plates.

This one depicts Michigan on it. Though we have to acknowledge that the Detroit Lions are one of the worst performing teams in the NFL.

46. You can always keep yourself warm in this Baltimore Ravens blanket.

One side has the Ravens logo. The other side is purple. Also fuzzy.

47. This Seahawks blankie is all decked with stars.

You can tell it’s a Seahawks blanket by the colors. And yes, each square is crocheted.

48. On cold games, you might want to snuggle with a Denver Broncos blanket throw.

This one is checked in orange and blue squares. Still, seems cozy if you ask me.

49. Relax during the big game tailgate party in this Pittsburgh Steelers lawn chair.

This one is painted yellow with a black back. And it has yellow lines to imitate a spark.

50. Any Indianapolis Colts fan would love to have a decomesh horseshoe on their door.

This is a blue horseshoe with white holes on it. And yes, the horseshoe is right side up.

51. You’d almost think this was a welcome hanger at some bar.

It’s actually a New Orleans Saints decoration. Not really sure what it’s made of. But you have to admire the artistry.

52. This Pittsburgh Steeler dog bed is fit for a champion.

It’s just a flat pillow that’s used for a small dog. Not sure if it’s thrilled with its bed.

53. Hang your coats on this Miami Dolphins rack.

Sure it might resemble something you’d see from a kid’s room. But it’s something even an adult would want. Though the only coats Dolphins fans would wear are windbreakers and rain slickers.

54. A Minnesota kitchen maven must have her own Vikings apron.

It even has a Vikings rose pin. You also have to like the light purple ribbon and frills.

55. Might want to check out this jeweled Baltimore Raven.

Think this might be a pin. The beak has some gold stones on it which is kind of strange.

56. A Seahawks wreath should always have some pom pom flowers.

It’s a yarn wreath with a Seahawk on it, by the way. Though bright green is employed in Seahawks gear, it’s only an accent color on the logo.

57. From socks, you can make your own Seattle Seahawks snowmen.

They even have their own hats, scarves, and buttons. So adorable you just want to hug them.

58. An Oakland Raiders fan would see this mosaic as a work of art.

It says “Raider Nation” around the circumference. Too bad the team’s moving to Vegas.
