Cool Geeky Kokeshi Dolls!

I'm a big collector of anything weird and wonderful as long as it includes sci-fi or superhero characters. I love Mighty Muggs and urban vinyl products and am always on the look out for something kooky or cool which can't be found in your local supermarket.

Over on etsy.com user temple7e has produced a whole bunch of cool custom Kokeshi dolls which are based on numerous characters from Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek and Turtles etc. Supposedly the Nintendo Wii's Mii avatars are based off the beloved Kokeshi doll's basic design and are usually decorated in Japanese Kimono patterns.

You can see all of temple7e's work HERE and buy them there too should you feel the need.
