Geek Chic: Halo messenger bag & the Space Invaders guitar strap
It’s a day for apparel at one of my favourite blogs. I couldn’t really decide whether I was going to write about the Halo 3 messenger bag or the Space Invaders embroidered guitar strap, so I thought what the hell, I’ll do ’em both.
Sadly the guitar strap is a DIY affair and unless you’re a dab hand at cross stitch, you’re going to need to ask your mum or other such person most likely to have ever sewed to, well, do it for you. The good news is that you can buy the messenger bag. The bad news is that you’ve got to order it from America, so there’s little chance of it arriving before Christmas, but then, who’d want to give away a red hot item like that anyway? It’s 14″ x 14″ and comes with four internal compartments for all your weapons and medi-packs.
All I can tell you about the guitar strap is the genius and extreme beautiful geekery of its maker, the Domestic Scientist. She comes from Alabama, describes herself by saying, “I’m not a housewife, I’m a domestic scientist! And a huge dork” and I think I’ve got a bit of a crush on her already.
A quick flick around her site has uncovered this Army of Darkness pumpkin and stencil to go with it, and some kind of embroidery pattern for a NES controller. Hands up who wants a cushion?
