My friend Ruth Suehle is a super-talented costume designer, but just like her sewing and embellishment projects, her geeky cakes are amazing too. She posted a detailed tutorial for this Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy cake over on Geek Mom – very cool!
Okay, kids, let’s wrap up Halloween with a few cool finds from Craftster…
Nicely detailed Batman and Bat Woman capes from mmh5.
Meticulously made Donnie Darko bunny suit from Tatterhood.
His and hers Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer costumes from mellifluousfondue.
Mini Shaun of the Dead from lanikins.
If there is one thing we love more than awesome geeky crafts, it is tutorials for awesome geeky crafts! Serena submitted her adorable Kirby Plush Tutorial that was posted on her blog. A little felt, a little batting and a lot of cute, Serena makes it simple, easy to follow, and, most importantly, painfully cute.
Man craftiness is sexy. Sam O posted this gem on her blog, CottonSpool. Mr. O has planned a costume party for his 30th birthday and plans to go as Ash, from the Evil Dead trilogy. Now, we all know Ash is nothing without his boom-stick and chainsaw, so when Mr. O realized an arm mounted chainsaw was hard to come by on Craigslist, he did what any man would do, he went to his shed, day in, day out, and created an Evil Dead Wearable Chainsaw from things he had laying around. Bravo, Mr. O!
