Earlier today my friend Kaitlen sent me a link to a dress that she was confident I would love…and she was right.
Erin who blogs about her sewing projects on A Dress a Day just put up this amazing and adorable gaming themed dress. How adorable is it? I love the 50s cut of the dress and the simple yet beautiful Tetris pattern. This is certainly not Erin’s first geeky chic masterpiece, many of you will remember her adorable Darth Vader Dress.

I think its apparent by now that we here at Domestic Geek LOVE Tetris. See Exhibits A, B, C and D. Well now we have another item to add to our growing list of awesomely geeky domestic products.
25 year old French artist Stephanie Choplin is an Industrial Design student working on her Master’s degree. Her work is clean and practical with a modern twist. Unfortunately it doesnt look like any of it is for sale as of yet, but hopefully Ms Choplin’s beautiful creations will be gracing store shelves sooner than later. Be sure to check out all of her work on her website.

Ok so my friend Patrick Klepek just pointed me in the direction of the most awesome ice cube tray ever. Ok, I know I find a new awesome ice cube tray every other month but seriously this one is amazing.
Ice Invaders Ice Cube Tray
This one actually tops the Tetris Ice Cube tray in terms of awesomeness and geekyness. The tray is a durable silicon tray that allows you to make 4 different pixely aliens from the classic Taito game which is one of the most successful and beloved games of all time. At a mere $7.50 how can you not buy it?
Mmmm whiskey and pixels….a match made in heaven.

It seems theres a never ending stream of awesome video game themed knits (trust me a I have a back log of projects and blog posts) but I found one today that is by far one of my favorites. This falls into the category of old but new to me…so hopefully its new to some of you as well!
Mega Man Knit Hat
Apparently a very lucky geeky boy has a super awesome crafty gal who knit him up this awesome hat. Now she just needs to knit him some Mega Man arm warmers and leg warmers and hes all set to battle Dr Willy.

Thats it, I can retire from blogging now because the greatest geeky domestic tool has been invented.
Pac-Man Oven Mitts
From domestic goody guru Fred comes heat handling silicone mitts that will satisfy your inner geek while you cook. Best of all is that inside the mitts they are textured with a Pac-Man course for texture and extra geekness. These babies launch in mid-April for a steal at $15 a pop.
I have a birthday coming up in late April…I’m just sayin’ ;)

I guess Ive just got knitting on the brain today because I just stumbled across this…
Super Mario Felted Bag
This super cute bag is fairly basic as long as you have a good grasp of Intarsia and Fair-Isle knitting. The pattern is very well laid out and lets you know exactly what you need to do every step of the way. To make this bag yourself click here. This bag is perfect for toting around your Wii…or your DS and wallet and other things that live in a purse ;)
Im definitely adding this to my ever growing list of knitting projects.
