It’s amazing what you can do with makeup nowadays. Scary, even. As Halloween is upon us, here are some of the best bits of scary makeup we can find. Warning – there may be content that might make some people freak out a bit. You have been warned…
Sizing up your eyes for surgery is definitely something to do around Halloween. Looks painfully realistic!
We would definitely be creeped out if this monster came at us…! Don’t want to get any of that goo on us either…
Once more unto the breach! Lollipop Geek ventured to the ExCel arena in east London to wander round MCM Comic Con last weekend. We attended on the Friday this time and managed to catch some amazing stalls, artists, cosplayers and fans. If you were lucky enough to get there this year, you’ll know what we’re talking about! If not, sit back and enjoy our photos and overview of the event. To see more from one of the artists or stalls featured, just click or tap on their name!

Hopefully you enjoyed Part 1 of our Game of Thrones family tree series. In Part 2, we’re going to discuss more of the many noble houses around Westeros. The house sigil artwork at the top of this post is by Renaud Forestié
“The Tyrells rose to power as the stewards of the Kings of the Reach, whose domain included the fertile plains of the southwest from the Dornish marches and Blackwater Rush to the shores of the Sunset Sea. Through the female line, they claim descent from Garth Greenhand, gardener king of the First Men, who wore a crown of vines and flowers and made the lands bloom. When King Mern, last of the old line, perished on the Field of Fire, his steward Harlen Tyrell surrendered Highgarden to Aegon Targaryen, pledging fealty. Aegon granted him the castle and dominion over the Reach. The Tyrell sigil is a golden rose on a grass-green field. Their words are ‘Growing Strong’.”
The Tyrell Family
As you all know, we are HUGE Pop! Vinyl fans. We decided to pull together our Pop collections to form one huge, amazing Game of Thrones Pop! family! We went out into the wild and photographed them in their natural environments. Enjoy the awesomeness of these brilliant Game of Thrones Pops.

Game of Thrones – Beyond the Wall
Continuing with this weeks Game of Throne theme. The next thing that I found which I found interesting was a lot of different art depicting different perspective of the show we all know and love and I am loving all of this Game of Thrones Fan Art!!!
Some spoilers to follow for those who haven’t yet completely caught up with the series!
The first one is the above image, which are the 8-bit pixel versions of different characters, created by Gleeson. These are so cool and I’m sure, if you are as much as a fan as us that you’ll be able to tell who’s who in this image. See if you can get them all!
Another pixelated version of the characters, however not in 8-bit format created by Boo Studios and selling a variety of different things, here, that you can keep around your home. Theses are more clearer who they are and I love the creativity and effort put into these.
In the build up to the new season to game of thrones we are carrying on with the trend of sharing with you our favourite Game of Thrones related items. This post will be of our favourite map art that we have found from around the net.
This above map is really cool, I like the flat design and the way it is laid out, the colour scheme to this is really fresh too. You can buy this one from here for £14.45.
This one is really interesting, created by J.E. Fullerton, it shows a lot of landmarks that are dotted all around the various kingdoms as well as other key activities that occur. It is quite packed full of items but is still really cool and gives off the middle age vibe that I’m sure the artist was aiming for.
Not long ago, Lollipop Geek had the pleasure of visiting the House of Illustration in London for their exhibition “Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics”. In this post, we are bringing the exhibition to you and showcasing some of our favourite artists on show. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
The exhibition is running until May 15th, so please catch it if you happen to be in London. You can find more information and tickets on the House of Illustration website.
Soppy – Philippa Rice
You may have seen Philippa’s gorgeous illustrations of love floating around on the internet for a while. If you have any need to express love, this should be your first stop.

To celebrate the announcement of Pokémon Sun & Moon, AND Pokémon’s 20th anniversary this weekend, we are showcasing our favourite Pokémon artists and their work! If you love Pokémon, or just want to see some pretty epic pieces of art, follow these guys on Instagram.
Risu-chuu is one of my favourite artists on Instagram. She’s so happy, lovely and you can really tell she has a passion for Pokémon and all things geeky. This drawing of Entei is one of my firm favourites of hers.
Who didn’t play with LEGO as a kid? Why leave it behind now that we are adults?
Lego interlocking toy bricks have always been popular, since its launch in 1949 and lately a few Designers and creative house owners, are using it to decorate their house.

The last weekend of November saw the east of London light up with Japanese culture. From sake to anime, maid cafes to obscure games, you could find anything to happily fulfil any geeky taste at this wonderful event in the Tobacco Docks. The spirit of Christmas was truly alive as you wandered through the stalls. There were workshops creating Japanese art, and shows on the stage featuring Japanese music artists and fashion icons. Here are a few of the stalls we enjoyed the most!
