Need some brew to focus your Poké skills? Our friends at Shirts.com just came up with these awesome Poké brew labels
As with any long-running pop culture phenomenon, as a franchise gets older, so do its fans. Pokémon trainers have grown up since 1996, the year that Nintendo and Game Freak released Pokémon Red and Blue, and they’ve evolved a lot in the past 20 years. They’ve graduated from high school and college, started careers, and even families. There are plenty of adult Poké-fans now, who instead of drinking juice boxes after school, drink coffee before work. (Full disclosure: we are those fans. Surprise!) Sooo, to combine our love of Game Boy and caffeine, ideally together, we’ve designed 13 different coffee blends featuring some of our favorite Pokémon on the labels.
1. Pikachu’s Morning Spark
Pikachu is probably the most well-known Pokémon. Like, if you asked your grandma to name just ONE, she’d definitely be more likely to answer with Pika, rather than, say, Garbodor or Rayquaza. We imagined Pikachu as a morning blend, thanks to his cheerful attitude and electric personality. (Sorry.) This is a great go-to blend for people who are just starting to get into coffee. Pikachu is just so likeable on a large scale, and so is his coffee roast.

Our friends over at HalloweenCostumes.com came up with this really cool infographic showing the costume progressions of three main characters in the Star Wars prequel trilogy
Since our first edition of Far Far Away Fashion was so well received, the wait for a follow up might have been less than enjoyable (but still better than waiting for The Force Awakens to come out). Well, the wait is over (one of the waits, anyway…) and we’re happy to present to you this Republic Edition costume guide! Straight from George Lucas’s Star Wars prequels, we have broken down some of your favorite characters’ main costumes.
There was a serious debate over which of Padme’s 12 gazillion costume changes to include, but we tried to pick out the most memorable fashion moments. With Anakin and Obi-Wan included for good measure, we have the looks of your three favorite heroes of the Republic. Well…heroes per se. That whole Darth Vader thing with Anakin is still a bit hard to swallow. (How did the little Ani who won our hearts with his Podracing exploits turn out to be the worst villain of all time??) You can use this infographic to check out his transformation, and it’s a great way to study up on the rest of your favorite prequel looks, too!
Toronto based graphic designer Johnee Pixels has found a great use for his Starbucks drink sleeves. Rather than tossing them out like we all do, he transforms the Siren into Disney characters
