You must bring us….a shrubbery!!! Flickr user tattooed_geek made this absolutely perfect charm bracelet based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. She made a vicious bunny rabbit (with “nasty, big, pointy teeth”), a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, a shrubbery!, galloping coconut, and an actual Holy Grail, all made from shrink plastic (remember Shrink Dinks?).
Craftster user Falwyn crocheted these super cute Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dolls for her kids, based on Atsuko’s pattern. Falwyn made the shells differently than Atsuko, and provided those directions in her post. Personally, I would have made the shells bigger, but all in all, this would make a great little gift for geeks large and small.
Our first Weekend 10 installment is all about everyone’s favorite Star Wars droid, R2-D2.
1. R2-D2 Cake
Flickr user sugarlipscakes made this R2-D2 cake for Dave’s 30th birthday. Dave’s a lucky man.
2. R2-D2 PC Case Mod
The Contaminated posted this incredible R2-D2 case modification. Unfortunately, there’s no instructions or further information. Not that any of us mere mortals could duplicate this amazing feat of engineering anyway.
I’m not really sure why a second X Files movie is being made. Wasn’t the first X Files movie kind of… bad compared to the TV show? Is that blasphemy? Anyway, something fun comes from anticipation of the new movie: Craftster user sydneysunray’s keychain plushies. Sydney sewed a little Mulder and a little Sculley out of felt.
Craftster user artoo1121 and her boyfriend made this incredible set of Lord of the Rings amigurumi characters. The bodies are crocheted, the clothes are sewn from felt and the accessories are made from polymer clay. The details are amazing!
Craftster.org user subloke made this Transformers toque based on Baigneuse’s version, who made hers based on Flickr user twosixteen’s chart. Subloke even made the Transformers hat reversible – one side has Autobot and Decepticon icons and the other side says “more than meets the eye.”
She was even kind enough to post the pattern and instructions to the Transformers hat so anyone with the skillz can make one too!
