Whether you're looking to treat yourself or a friend, these shops will definitely be your new-found heaven. There are loads of prints and accessories coming your way. I hope your body (and wallet) is ready. 

Captain's Print Shop

Looking for prints? Captain's Print Shop has you covered! This shop offers prints inspired by video games, movies and TV shows. Featured above is the Fallout 11x17 print for $20. This shop has prints for titles like Bioshock, Pokemon, Destiny, and more. Mostly minimalist, these gamer art pieces will be a fun edition to your game room.

At the Drive In

Welcome to the wonderful world of dictionary prints. At the Drive In recycles old dictionary pages and reprints them with colorful prints inspired by video games, anime, and pop culture.

Fun fact: you can even request a specific word you want to have featured in the background to make the print even more special. For example, are you gettings an 8-bit heart printed? Request to get the word heart, love or even life featured in the back, and the artist will do their best to make it work! Featured above is The Legend of Zelda Link Dictionary Art, for $5.

WiredLifeShop

The WiredLifeShop creates handmade video game-related pillows to geek up your home. Though it's mostly Zelda-related pillows, the shop also includes pillows inspired by Pokemon and League of Legends. Pictured is the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Owl Video Game Pillow for $35! 

Digitalsoaps

It's time to clean those cartridges. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Pick up cartridge
  2. Add water

Voila! That's right, I said water. Digitalsoaps creates parodies of famous old-school games in the form of soap. The titles have punny little names that add to the appeal. For example, Tetris is changed to Wetris, and Pokemon to Soapemon.

Their soaps range from cartridges to controllers. Order your favorite form of geeky soap and surprise your house guests with these realistic remakes. The prices range from $14-$20.
