I do enjoy the craftiness that goes on over at Imgur, but those posts are so short. Since it’s a photo-based site, there’s never enough info about the crafts to satisfy my geeky little brain. That’s part of the reason why I love Craftster so much…all the details of a geek craft you can handle!
It’s made out of Bloodwood for the red, the eyes are maple, and the rest of it is cherry. And each piece is 1/4″ wide. There was even a little blood shed over this project, where her knee got cut on a sharp edge. To finish it off, BadWolf314 did, “a TON of sanding,” and tung oil to bring out the patterns of the wood.
CKYKOK posted an album of the 2013 Halloween costumes he and his family made from the movie, “Up.”
They made Carl, Russell, a construction worker, Charles, Kevin the peacock, and even a baby Kevin.
If anyone is interested, CKYKOK said all of the costumes are available for purchase. For more info, PM him through Imgur.
How’s this for a meaningful – and dare I say magical? – proposal? Lindsey Loree, whom I found via Female Geek Bloggers on G+, crafted this custom Magic: The Gathering card to propose to her boyfriend during a gaming session.
She blogged about the whole experience, from deviously learning to play Magic better so it wouldn’t be weird that she asked him to play with her, on through the process for crafting the card, to the actual game-proposal. Magical, indeed!
Any other geeky proposal stories out there?

Crazyfoalrus of Australia is a Whovian we should all aspire to be…he turned his living room into the TARDIS control room!
Crazyfoalrus did all the lighting and electrical himself, built the whole console and painted the floor. His living room was already hexagonal shaped room, he owned all the timber, and he worked at a factory with a lot of spare parts to be dumped which were used for the controls. It took him a year to finish.
Check out his Deviant Art gallery for more images from his redesigned living room.
If you looked at that title and shook your head, you need more crafty Klingon’s in your life. Over at The Giving Flower a design for a Bat’leth scarf is up for any enterprising knitter.
As the designer describes: “Feeling a bit agressive? Need to let your inner Klingon free? Then this is just the scarf for you. It can be used in battle or just worn around your neck to keep you or your favorite Klingon warrior warm. With the silk and merino content and the holes formed by the grips, it flows gently around any Klingon or non-Klingon neck and won‘t get too warm. It also can come in handy in case a Klingon battle ensues. Don‘t be caught empty handed this winter!”
If that’s not a call to winter battle. We all know the colder season is approaching for some of us. And its time for it to taste defeat.
