Here are my choices for the 12 best geek crafts of 2010:
Let’s get one thing out of the way, right now. I love cake. Cup cakes, wedding cakes, pancakes. Cake is good. In addition to being delicious, cake is a great medium for art. Yeah, I said it, I think amazingly decorated cakes are art–and it’s not just because I like eating art. Kristen made this Super Nintendo Cake out of red velvet (0ne of my favorites!) for her husband’s birthday. If you’ll believe it, it was her first try at a sculpted cake! Very well done, and I am sure, very delicious.
Batman villain Poison Ivy is best known for her ability to control plant life, using it to wreak havoc on Gotham City. Now, Michele Legendre adds “criminally cute” to the super-villain’s list of powers, and not even the Dark Knight will be able to resist Ivy’s sheer adorableness.
Spotted on DeviantART, this plush Poison Ivy is handmade out of eco-friendly felt made from recycled bottles (which is quite appropriate for this “green” crusader), safety eyes, and airbrush paint.
EDIT: Her Etsy store, Deadly Sweet Plushes, is open for business again, and she’ll begin accepting custom orders mid-January 2011.
Hello out there! Now that the frenzy of the holidays has wound down, I can take a breath, break out my crafts, and properly introduce myself as one of the new members of the Geek Crafts crew.
I’m Sherezada, an indie filmmaker and writer. I’ve been a card-carrying geek since I was a kid. Some of my favorites include the original Star Wars trilogy, J.R.R. Tolkien, video games (especially BioWare-made games), horror-comedy films, and comic books.
I love showing my geek pride through my needlework, like this piece I stitched up of Nibbler from Futurama, and my Han Solo cross stich sampler. I also dabble in knitting and sewing, though I’m still getting the hang of both.
Here’s to a new year filled with Geek Crafts goodness!
I don’t know about you but I for one, loved Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. It was all kinds of nerd love.
I also had a soft spot for Ramona, possibly because her hair changed colour every other scene.
What I loved best about her though was her totally awesome bag.
Well, you and I can have this bag now! That’s right!
