At the 2014 Allentown Comic Con there was a cosplay contest judged by celebrity cosplayers Riki Lecotey a.k.a. “Riddle” and Nicole Marie Jean. To keep the crowd entertained while they deliberated, they asked Robert Franzese, the perfect Peter Griffin cosplayer, to take the mic and he completely KILLED it!
Check out “Peter’s” stand-up comedy routine video.
By all means, this is not an elaborate cosplay, but it works because it’s so simple: glasses, white shirt, green pants, and a belt buckle. However, this guy has nailed it with the voice, the laugh and the banter he does. I mean, he actually makes Peter into a cute character! I’d love to see him team up with a Lois Griffin impersonator!
In nearly all flea markets, you can find a stash of comic books. What to do with them after reading them? You can make magnets! Amanda over on Crafts by Amanda has written a great post that gives you a tutorial on making them!
After you’ve made your plethora of magnets for yourself and friends and gifts, she has a link to learn how to make comic book coasters!
So the next time you’re at a flea market, hunt down those comics, and let the fun begin. Amanda also has 2 craft books, be sure to check them out!

I spoil you.
From video to card to board, we have several gaming favorites at our house. Of the card and board variety, my kids enjoy Magic the Gathering, Munchkin and Settlers of Catan. Which makes me think this DIY gaming tabletop might be a big hit.
Kristy GD at Please Excuse My Craftermath has created a DIY gaming tabletop that is actually an IKEA hack project, sits atop her existing dining room table, and stores away as a decorative accent between gaming sessions. Talk about multi-purpose! Her blog post walks you through her process for creating the functional and portable tabletop.
With which games would you use this tabletop at your house?

Jimmy Q. Trapp has a Tumblr page dedicated to his craft: drawing and coloring on coffee cups and leaving them for people to find.
His minimalist Sinestro was from July 10, 2014. And from the looks of his Facebook page, “Pencils, Coffee and Markers,” any kind of subject matter is available.
Or maybe this post should be called “Game of Phones.”
Either way, tumblr1 posted this mini iron throne she made for her phone, on Imgur.
There’s not much about it, other than it’s made with Styrofoam, hot glue, a package (or two) of plastic hors d’oeuvres swords, clay and paint. For a photo tute, check out her posting on Imgur.
