With Easter almost upon us, it’s time for creating eggs that show off your own natural geekiness!
For the steampunk fans out there, Jen from Epbot has once again created some beautiful metal-looking eggs with charms added as a great extra bit of cuteness. She used papercraft eggs as the base, and then modified metal tape to put over it.
Next, the wonderful crafters over at Our Nerd Home posted a quick and easy DIY to make your own Yoshi eggs! Using large plastic eggs from Michaels, they spray painted a layer of white, and then added large colored dots to create eggs that Super Mario would be proud of.
Hopefully that will help you geek-ify your Easter basket this year, and here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Easter!
It’s Easter!! And what better way to celebrate than an Easter egg hunt with Pokémon eggs?! Gotta find ’em all!
Yaltro on Flickr made this fantastic selection of Pokémon Easter eggs, with food dye, sharpies and white out. The first lot were made in 2011 and the second lot in 2012… I hope there’s a third lot on the way this year!
Why not give it a go yourself this Easter? My favourites from this lot are Psyduck and Snorlax! Do you have any other ideas for geeky Easter Eggs?
John at Superpunch featured these amazing Geeky Easter Eggs, and I thought I would share it today so anyone who is like me, and waits until the night before Easter to decorate eggs can try some of these amazing ideas!
Above is the Bender egg, the binary egg and the soon-to-be ever-so-popular Yoda egg. On Superpunch you will also find some other really amazing Easter eggs including World Of Warcraft, Kiss and Aqua Teen Hungerforce inspired eggs, as well as Domokun and some cool “egg scenes”. This is one way to totally geek-a-fy your Easter celebration and show off how artistic you are (or, as it may turn out–aren’t).
I know this isn’t exactly a “craft” but this Egg Cuber from The Kitchen Store is just way too cool not to tell you about. Seriously, aside from the word “MONK!!” popping into my head as soon as I saw it, I also had visions of food-colored cubed eggs becoming Tetris pieces on a large platter for the Easter brunch I am planning, or a big cubed-egg Rubik’s Cube. Honestly, OCD or not, this is the most awesome invention you could own for $2.99 plus shipping.
I’d love to write more but I need to put my order in.
Marvel’s The Avengers (2012)
Director: Joss “The Man” Whedon
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, and Samuel L. Jackson
Last week Kansas City was one of the select cities to host The Ultimate Marvel Marathon in AMC theaters. We took a “family day” to enjoy and revel in the geekiness. It was advertised as “one epic day” – it did not disappoint.
In celebration of the new teaser trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” why not get your baby in on the act? Unicorn Stitches, an Etsy shop located in Nampa, ID has just the onsie your little geek-in-training needs: a Chewbacca onsie, complete with ammo belt and fuzzy tummy!
This handmade item is made from a onsie, brown fabric dye, faux brown fur, and brown and gray felt. It’s available in sizes for 0-3 months, up to 24 months. Or, if you’re the crafty type, then you’ve already plotted out in your head how to make one yourself.
And if Chewbacca isn’t enough for you, then check out the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper onsies with their matching hats.
