GeekCraft roundup: GIR!
My daughter is very into “Gir” these days – the sidekick from the Invader Zim cartoon. She’s hoping to pull together a Gir costume for Halloween. So in researching various DIY options, I pulled together this roundup of Gir crafts.
When I was a kid, I used to love Shrinky Dinks, so these Dog Gir/Robot Gir earrings by Lynn Aquaheart caught my eye.
HarpyQueen posted a pic of her Gir cake at DeviantArt, complete with fondant piggie!
I love the little fruit roll-up tongues on these cute Gir cupcakes by FeatherFire520 (a very Gir-appropriate treat!)
While he does spend a lot of time thinking about cupcakes, I’m sure Gir also ponders the state of the environment on occasion. So he would be undoubtedly pleased with this upcycled Gir t-shirt pillow project by TheComfyGeek.
Nezumish created a very impressive hand-carved Gir stamp – I could see my daughter really digging using this to decorate her school binder. Hmmm – perhaps a stocking stuffer?
April Draven Designs has shared 2 Gir craft projects with us – a crochet Gir Bag and an Gir amigurumi project, in robot form. Both posted with patterns! (Note: for more links to geeky projects, check out this great amigurumi project archive at Craftster!)
And in what has to be the most unique Gir craft I found in my wanderings – a hand-painted Gir push-up bra. For all your world domination needs. Be sure to check out RainbowKidShop’s other hand-painted bra offerings in her Etsy shop.
And you? Are you a fan of Gir? Do you prefer his dog or robot form?
