Star Trek Craft: ComBadge Earrings

Star Trek ComBadge earrings by Tally Heilke

Stay in touch with your away team with these fantastic Star Trek ComBadge Earrings. Tally Heilke provides a full tutorial on her blog. Not exactly a typical Father’s Day sort of craft, but suitable for me, since my dad was the one who initiated me into the world of Star Trek.

As a scrapbooker with a basement full of paper stash, I was intrigued to see the earrings are made out of cardstock! Plus it’s an excuse to break out some power tools! <insert Tim Allen-esque grunting>

Are you planning any Star Trek cosplay for upcoming cons? These would be the perfect accessory!

Leon’s Window

Knickertwist (I love that name!) posted a really lovely tribute on Craftster to Leon, The Professional, a movie that came out in 1994, starring Jean Reno and Natalie Portman.

window

It measures 5″ tall and is built upon a Graphic 45 matchbox. It slides open, and features a Madonna, bullet marked wall and two quarts of milk inside, all part of Leon’s apartment in the movie. For more pictures of his window, check out Knickertwist’s blog.

Home Decor: Maleficent Dragon Trophy

Paper Mache Maleficent dragon trophy by Dan (the Monster Man) Reeder

In honor of the “Maleficent” movie premiere this past weekend, I wanted to share an amazing project by Dan “the Monster Man” Reeder: Maleficent Dragon Trophy. It was a custom commission project which he sold for $2000.

Dan used paper mache to recreate the head of the Maleficent dragon head, and mounted it like a wall trophy – clever idea and goregous reproduction! Impressive attention to detail with glass eyes and LED lights to make it extra ominous.

Have you seen the new Maleficent movie yet?
