While perusing the Net this morning, I came across this fantastic etsy shop. 1luckysoul has an wonderful collection of necklaces that can tempt the many obsessions of geeks and fandom!
Look at this piece called Snape’s Memoir. I think it’s my favorite. There are horcruxes, sorting hats, the Deathly Hallows trio, stacks of Hogwarts books, and then, there’s the Hunger Games collection. I’d have a hard time making a decision as to which ones to buy because I wouldn’t be able to stop at just one!
After being heavily involved with historical reenactment for 19 years, I can appreciate great costuming, both in the time spent in its creation and the money invested. Costuming done right is a labor of love. One of my favorite “fun” types of costuming has to be faeries. There are no set rules, just let your mind run free!
sairosaurus on Craftster has shared her faerie creations. What is even better is that as you read through this thread, not only do you get to see some fantastic photos but she goes into her creative process for several bits and pieces of her costumes. She discusses how she made her goblin shoes, a goblin latex mask as well as her faerie wings. Her work is amazing!
Nail art always fascinates me. Not the butterfly and bling kind. The geeky, awesome kind.
Well, there just so happened to be exactly that in the Geek Crafts Flickr pool this week. Flickrer ClaireWallis made epic Venom nail art! Look how fun that looks!
If only I had the patience…
Wow, I love Casstasstrophe’s jewelry. I wish she weren’t on vacation—I’d be tempted to buy it all now! She hits all the geek themes: Firefly, Game of Thrones, Buffy, Star Trek, even Mystery Science Theater 3000.
I am always amazed at the patience required with peyote stitch beading. I could never do that. I would throw everything across the room, swearing. This ring by Flickr-er sallaevilincarnate is awesome. Because some days, you just need a 1up.
I’m not going to say that the creations of Your Organ Grinder aren’t a little on the weird side, because they are. I mean, they’re felt organs. But they’re also kind of rad. Particular favorites here include the brain necklace, brain hairclip, and nose embroidery hoop.
