Pirate-Themed PC Accessories

January 23rd, 2008 by frankie23

I know the pirate thing is about done to death right now, happily making way for sweet, sweet steampunk to rise in its place in the hipster underground, but these johnny-come-lately speakers still manage to get my heart all a-flutter with coolness.

I mean, really, you can see how badass they are, yes? I especially love the eerie inner blue glow. Frankly, I’m a sucker for things that glow blue, but what can you do? I’d feel the need to mod them up a bit, make them look more like religio-magical artifacts than just plain ol’ skulls, but they’re still pretty damn cool. Even better, there’s a matching webcam!

I’m really loving the webcam. It looks more like a piece of background scenery for someone’s tropical fishtank, but there’s something Sailor Jerry about it that I love, a slightly camp feel to it. Plus, that skeleton on the far right looks hella pissed off with the snaketail around his neck. Unfortunately, these pretty little items are out of my price range for aesthetically pleasing yet horribly impractical PC accessories, but feel free to pick yourself up a pair. Feel even more free to get two, and send one set to me. ;)
