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!
I know this isn’t actually geeky (although I’m categorizing it as sciences, there), but it cracked me up so I’m posting it anyway. Craftster user Zanarchy combined a shark costume with some mermaid pieces to make Ariel, The Little Mermaid attacked by a shark. Love it!
…Jennifer with the Star Wars 2-person AT-AT costume.
I am totally in love with the 2 person AT-AT walker costume. Unfortuantely I cannot convince my husband to wear it with me :(
Jennifer – send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a $10 Amazon.com gift card.
Not necessarily in order – work, school, family, blogging, crafts – and now jury duty! I don’t have the time or energy to find you some fantastic Halloween costumes, so you dear readers needs to help me out! Leave a link in the comments to a cool Halloween costume or craft by Sunday midnight and I’ll pick someone at random to get a prize. And go!
Nicole of Making it Lovely just posted a tutorial for spook-ifying your front porch, just in time for Halloween! She used construction paper, spray paint and branches to create a super creepy montage of crows and rats, in both 2D and 3D. What a perfect project for the Edgar Allen Poe/goth end of the geek spectrum!
