We’re smitten with the darkly whimsical and surreal paintings of Austin, Texas-based artist Erika Jane Mallette. In her awesome world Edgar Allan Poe kicks back by dunking a donut, while still looking distinctly ill-at-ease. Meanwhile Chewbacca is welcomed home from dangerous adventures by his beloved kitty cat, Alf feasts on slices of roast cat (as we know he always wanted to do), and Buddy Holly returns to the world in the manner of Frankenstein’s Monster. He’s Buddystein! This is our kind of world.
This awesome Gingerbread Rudolph the Red-Nosed AT-AT was created by Chef Aaron Lawrence of the Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar at the Magnolia Hotel & Spa in Victoria, BC. The geektastic holiday treat was made for the 5th Annual Canada’s National Gingerbread Showcase, which starts tomorrow, November 23rd.
The Canadian National Gingerbread Showcase takes place in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Victoria at the Inn at Laurel Point in Victoria, BC. You know a country cares a lot about gingerbread when they gather annually to show off their edible architecture skills.
“There will be no bargain. I will not give up my favorite decoration. I like my honey where it is.”
Clermont, Florida-based illustrator Kenny Durkin (previously featured here) created this awesome mashup of Star Wars and Winnie-the-Pooh. It’s Winnie the Hutt! All of Kenny’s character combinations are wonderful, but we’re particularly taken by Tigger, who makes a perfect Salacious Crumb.
For a series entitled Wars on Kinkade, digital artist Jeff Bennett, aka Alien Artisan, takes the decidedly benign pastoral landscape paintings of American mass-market painter Thomas Kinkade and turns them into surreal sci-fi scenes by adding Star Wars characters and vehicles.

We’ve seen so many fantastic examples of pumpkin carving this Halloween season, and they just keep coming. Here’s another: Alex Wer, artist and self-proclaimed Pumpkin Geek, created this awesome jack-o’-Lantern depicting the USS Enterprise in pursuit of the Millennium Falcon. Who would emerge victorious from such a mighty showdown?
Visit the Pumpkin Geek gallery to view many more of Alex’s geektastic jack-o’-lanterns.
Anthony Herrera (previously featured here) is back with more awesome Star Wars snowflake geekery. This year we’ve been gifted with designs for Boba Fett, AT-AT and AT-ST walkers, Emperor Palpatine, Nein Nunb, Han Solo frozen in carbonite, and the ferocious Rancor. And these aren’t even all of Anthony’s snowflake pattern offerings this year.

Visit the Team Death Star Facebook page to check out more of their crazy Star Wars-related geekery. (But be forewarned, some of it is nsfw.)
This isn’t the latte you’re looking for. Or is it?
Redditor Dielawn91 shared this photo of an awesome piece of Star Wars coffee art. We don’t know the name of the talented barista responsible for creating this fantastic foam Storm Trooper (please please let us know if you do), but, whoever you are, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you and your geekstastic coffee artistry.

We just found the perfect gift for the Star Wars fan who already seems to have every Star Wars-related product you can think of. Chances are pretty good that they do not already own a 16-foot-tall, beautifully detailed replica of an All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST).
This awesome chicken walker is currently up for sale on eBay for the modest price of £9,800 (~$15,700). It’s a one-of-a-kind prop, handmade out of metal and wood. It’s been weather-proofed and even comes its own trailer. Right now it’s located in Bristol, England, but maybe its next home will be your own front yard.
Visit the AT-ST’s eBay listing for more photos and information.
