For an ongoing series entitled Invading The Vintage, Italian illustrator Franco Brambilla (previously featured here) turns beautiful vintage postcards into awesome works of whimsical science fiction-themed art. AT-ATs gallop down a scenic oceanside street while the Doctor parks the TARDIS outside Downton Abbey (aka Highclere Castle) and heads inside for dinner. A group of iconic sci-fi baddies gather at a waterside resort as a family of Jawas shows up to an outdoor flea market in their Sandcrawler to sell both droids and used cars. Meanwhile ED-209 has some Canadian Mounties to deal and a group of aliens have landed their flying saucer somewhere in the Alps to cool their heels and commune with some Alpine cows.

Brambilla has altered each postcard so thoroughly and subtly that the longer you look at it, the more of additions you’ll notice.

Visit Franco Brambilla’s website and the Invading The Vintage Facebook page for many more geektastically enhanced postcards.

Last year we featured an incredible Power Loader Halloween costume created by Aliens fan Jason Smith that he wore along with his infant daughter in the driver’s seat. Amazingly, over in Germany Carsten Riewe appears to have improved upon that concept after spending 100 hours creating his own amazing version of the Caterpillar P5000 exoskeleton power loader that he wore with his 13-month-old daughter.

"The arms and legs are full moveable and the top-light and LED were powered by an 12 Volt battery pack stored in the backpack. The on/off switch is in the left arm. Also in the backpack a Bluetooth boombox is installed to play mechanical robot sound fx or music if preferred. It took 100 working hours to finish the costume and I built it for the "Karneval"-Parade in my hometown in Germany February 2014 ."

No written description compares to simply watching the costume in action. The leve of detail, internal lighting, sound effects and (of course) the adorable baby driver combine to form a truly awesome costume, not to mention a geektastic tribute to a fantastic film.

"Well, of course I’m being childish! There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes."

Sandbach, Cheshire, UK-based Playmobil member Emma J made is awesome custom set of steampunk Doctor Who toys featuring a TARDIS, a Dalek, and the 4th Doctor. Tom Baker looks great in tiny plastic form. We hope that beautiful TARDIS is full of Jelly Babies.

UK-based artist Kayleigh O’Connor (previously featured here) first started using false nails simply to conceal the grisly consequences of her nail biting habit, but it didn’t take long for those false nails to evolve into an awesome, ever-changing art project. She changes up her nails a few times a week and draws inspiration from a wealth of pop culture sources, particularly TV shows and movies. She’s got a whole set of Dr. Who-inspired manicures and we love that one of her Futurama-inspired treatments included a Brain slug.

This is just a small sampling of Kayleigh’s fantastic fingernails. Visit her DeviantArt page or follow her right here on Tumblr to check out lots more.

Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, aka Avanaut, used LEGO bricks, minifigs, baking powder and a masterful ability to manipulate perspective in order to create an awesome series of Star Wars scenes that appear to take place on the snowy planet Hoth.

As a lifelong fan of Star Trek: The Original Series, Line Rainville knew exactly what she wanted to do when she grew up and got her very own house - deck it out from wall to wall and floor to ceiling with Star Trek decor. And that’s exactly what she did to her geektastic home in Joliette, Quebec, Canada.

The project began with a Star Trek-themed home theatre in Line’s basement and grew from there. After a year’s worth of renovations and about $30,000, Line’s awesome home now features elements from the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, Spock’s personal quarters, the transporter room, and lots more. There’s a food replicator in the kitchen and we even spotted a Tribble on one of the control panels on the bridge and a bottle of Saurian brandy on the dining table.

Santa had better be careful when placing presents beneath this awesome Dalek Christmas tree. Just because it looks festive doesn’t mean it isn’t anything other than hate-filled and hostile.
