Object of geek desire: handmade Yoda hoodie

When it comes to letting your geek flag fly, few things satisfy quite as like a hoodie does. At once comfortable, stylish, and laid back, these proud signifiers of geek culture and fandom are an amazing way to stay warm while showing your devotion to your movie, game, or meme of choice.

Etsy seller TheCommonRoom understands this well, which is what makes her Yoda hoodie all the more irresistible.

Desire this hoodie, you will.

Available on TheCommonRoom's Etsy shop, this darling little number comes in Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large and is the best way to stand out from the crowd of your ThinkGeek hoodie wearing compatriots. The added bonus? It'll cost you less than $50 to secure your own handmade Yoda-themed outerwear.  Score!

Eagle-eyed readers who prefer Slytherin and Gryffindor to Hoth and Dagoba might wonder about TheCommonRoom's store name. After all, with a Harry Potter-styled sobriquet like that, you'd think the crafty gal would cater more to wand-wielders than aspiring Jedi.

Well, you'd be half right with that assumption because - as it turns out - TheCommonRoom also has a pretty bitchin' house elf hoodie available in her store.

Slightly more expensive than the Yoda hoodie, the "Free Elf" hoodie is still undeniably awesome - even if it makes you look a bit like a mogwai.
