Boba Fett and Stormtrooper Embroideries

“I have a compulsive need to make sets of things” is the title for these Star Wars embroideries, and I’m so glad she does! rollerderbysinner stitched these pink Boba Fett and purple Stormtrooper hoops, and they’re awesome (can you call a Stormtrooper adorable?)

My niece (who is 5) went to All Con in a purple Mandalorian costume. I think she needs something like this for her bedroom!

Dr. Who Tardis Earrings

Dr. Who Tardis EarringsI love Doctor Who.  I have been watching since I was a wee little geek boy and the series has continued to entertain me as I have grown into a strapping geek man.

Julie Smith of BohemianCraftsody on Etsy makes all kinds of geeky jewelry, but these Tardis earrings are perfect in my opinion.  The problem is, I don’t have pierced ears.  So I need you to wear these in my place.  Just be sure to tell everyone that you are wearing them for Pauly.

Check out the earrings!

Aperture Science Space Core Cake

Aperture Science Space Core CakeYeah, you read that right.  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this cake based on the personality cores from Portal 2.  I thought I had made some sort of mistake, but check out this picture of the cake being cut.  I could never be a baker, because if I made a cake this awesome and someone tried to cut into it I don’t know what I would do.  Certainly we would be in the newspaper the next day.

The cake was made by the talent over at Mike’s Amazing Cakes in Redmond, WA.  I have attempted to make a cake in the past, and failed horribly, so I can’t even imagine the kind of work that would go into something like this.

For more pictures of this beauty, check out sharkhats flickr set.

Lego Creations from Folded Fancy

Lego Folded FancyNeed a Star Wars Lego wedding cake topper for your geeky wedding? Or, want to show your sweetie how special they are with a Lego flower bouquet that’ll never wilt?

Well, look no further than Folded Fancy Creations! Each Lego model is made by the talented Mariann Asanuma, the world’s first female freelance Lego artist.

Mariann is one of my crafty heroes, and (full disclosure) one of my high school friends. She worked her way up to Master Model Builder at LEGOLAND California (the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign in Miniland is her handiwork), before striking out on her own. Now, she builds custom models, writes how-to Lego books, and manages Folded Fancy.

If you just want a little touch of Lego in your life, she also makes adorable wee magnets (like these Pac-Man magnets), and geek chic jewelry out of rare Lego tiles.

With that, my friends, my time at Geek Crafts has come to an end. I love writing for this wonderful blog, but, with the upcoming release of my first comic book project, it’s time for me to devote myself completely to my fiction and filmmaking. Yeep! I’m making the big leap. So, I’ll still be in the geek loop, just on the other side of it.

Thank you for reading my posts, and for all the lovely comments. Keep creating, and I’ll catch you on the flip side!

Geekily Yours,
