Dragon Age 2 Cookies

Dragon Age 2 cookiesI just finished playing Dragon Age 2. Not to spoil anything, but sometimes I felt like it should have been called “Dragon Age: Sucks to Be You.” Or maybe that was just my play-through.

So, it cheered me up immensely to see all those beloved DA2 characters in gingerbread cookie form. Baked up by DeviantART user Lubyelfears, these tasty treats deliciously capture the likeness of the champion’s companions.

I can’t decide what I love more: Fenris’ frosting tattoos, the scowl on Aveline’s face, or the fact that Verric the dwarf is shorter and stouter than the rest of the cookies!

Wizards vs. Vampires Cards

Wizards vs. Vampires cardsPirates versus ninjas? Please. We all know the real literary smack-down is between vampires and wizards.

Whether you’re on team fangs or team fireballs, you can find cards and bookmarks to give to friends on the opposite side of the debate on Erin’s Hesed Books and Gifts Etsy store.

Exploding TARDIS Shoes

Man I wish I could draw. Then I could try to make these for myself! cakewalkqueen made a pair of Exploding TARDIS sneakers using sharpies! She based them on a pair she saw on Etsy that feature Van Gogh’s drawing of the TARDIS exploding from the Doctor Who episode “The Pandorica Opens”. One shoe says “The pandorica will open” on the outside and the other says “Silence will fall”.

Knit Your Own Binary Scarf!

“Knitting may be a centuries-old craft, but the results can be quite high-tech. For example, it’s now possible to store data on a scarf. And the good news is, the construction is completely open source.”

This lady here is Christine Dumoulin, and she not only created this fabulous scarf (and wrote that witty introduction) but also shared the pattern on the magical interwebs!

I can’t knit, but it’s things like this that make me really wish I could. Once you get started the possibilities are endless, binary cardigans, binary baby clothes?

You can even go all out and hide secret messages in your binary wear like Craftster user Jaberwocky, who hid lines from the Tao Te Ching in their binary scarf!
