Hmm...but these are images, so even if you hover outside the image (near the image), it will show a hover effect. Not sure if this is acceptable to requester, but I don't think that without using rotated divs you will be able to achive this,
Here is a quick demo of what you want. This should be able to get you started. Let me know if you need more help on it.
