All week long, I scour the Internet for the best ways to blow part (or all) of your paycheck on your favorite fandom. From clothes and jewelry to wall art and prints, if it’s geeky, it’s game.

Calling all Cinderella, dinosaur, “Big Hero 6,” Star Wars, and David Bowie fans. Step right up and calculate exactly how late you can be with the rent.

#1: Be the star of the ball in this gauzy ’Cinderella’ skirt.
It is literally impossible not to feel like a princess while wearing tulle.

Available at Kohl’s Online and retail stores.


#2: If you can’t stand the heat, don’t get get T-Rex heat lamp.
If you think this would make more sense as a dragon, get out of here with that kind of logic.

Okay this one’s a cheat. You have to buy the MATERIALS. Instructions aptly at Instructables.

He’ll even lull you to sleep or help you with meditative breathing.

Just ignore his indignant beeps.
