A Little Bit On The Custom Sneaker Side: Fallout “Vault Dweller” Dunks by Jacob Patterson in collaboration with Emmanuelabor.

Jacob Patterson just sent us pics of his latest custom kicks which took him over an entire year to complete. Be sure to click each image for the full sexy view.

From the artist:

The tongues feature jailbroken iPod Touches that have been given sounds, themes, apps, music, and related materials to fit the Fallout universe. Originally I had planned to sculpt or paint the tongues out to look like the actual Pip-Boy device, but it was too noisy. Instead, I trusted the Pip-Boy theme to do the job, and it does in a much more subtle way. On the sides are painted a soldier in Power Armor from Fallout 3 and a Ranger from New Vegas. 

My feet are a little sad that they’ll never get to wear these, but on the other hand, if I had a one-of-a-kind pair of shoes this awesome, I really don’t think I’d ever wear them. They’d just sit up on a shelf in my living room to make visitors envious.

Read the full story on how these were made over on the Custom Sneaker Forum.

A Little Bit On The Bowser Side: One bored-ass man with a buttload of a colored duct tape and spare time on his hands made this huge Bowser sprite in his driveway. When asked how he accumulated so much tape, he told authorities it was leftovers from all the girls he had tied up in his garage. The man is currently in police custody and awaiting trial. Okay, everything after the first sentence I completely made up.
