HARRY POTTER: Hand Drawn Marauder’s Map Dress & Hair Bow

This Marauder's Map dress and hair bow are immensely impressive because they were drawn by hand with fine point sharpies.  The map is incredibly detailed and tumblr user permetstu totally nailed it for LeakyCon.  According to her, the text on the front of the dress took three and a half hours to complete.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Dancing Baby GROOT Cake

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Dancing Baby GROOT Cake

We think it's safe to say that everyone wants to dancing baby Groot all the things.  We recently posted about this impressive adult Groot cake, and this baby version was bound to follow.  It was baked by Rainbow Bakehouse in the UK for a 25th birthday.  The dirt is made of chocolate cake crumbs and the pot has a peanut butter and chocolate fudge cake base covered in white fondant.  The baby Groot was created using light brown modeling clay and we believe the green leaves are also made from fondant.
