Galactically Awesome Star Wars Shoes

hand-painted Star Wars shoes

Holy Mother of Meteors, these shoes are full of all kinds of sassy geekitude! I would so rock these.

Spied on Geek-lee-tist, these custom-made hand-painted Star Wars shoes are the handiwork of Holly Grothues on Etsy. I bow to her greatness – of painting ability, and geek-lovin’ creativity.

What I love is that she’s not married to Star Wars – she’s totally geek-friendly:

“I can do pretty much ANYTHING, from geekery (Harry Potter, LOTR, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Hunger Games, etc.) other movies, animes, video games, etc. to general designs (stripes, polka dots, etc.), personalization (quotes, names, etc.) you name it!”

I would have a hard time choosing between Star Trek images and some Firefly quotes, but you can bet I’m going to start looking for the right pair of fabric-based heels!

And you? What custom order would you request for your own geek-tastic heels?

For Little Geeks on the Go!

For those of us who are parents, we all deal with the same problem of how to keep our little geeklings occupied and/or quiet when needed. Yesterday while perusing Pinterest, I found the most amazing answer!

 

A Star Trek Quiet Book!  I am in AWE! Julie has created an amazing quiet book complete with a full set of the Next Gen characters in finger puppet form, transporter, a Vulcan salute and Geordie’s glasses.

Heck, I think I’d have to buy two of these books. One for my kids and one for ME!

Check out Julie’s etsy for even more of her geeky, creative genius!

They Must Exterminate…

They Must Exterminate... … or at least keep the boiled eggs warm! These hand crafted Dalek Egg Cozies are just right for the job. Created by Lyles Knit, free patterns are available for either a knitted circular. Don’t feel left out, crocheters because there is a crocheted pattern available that was designed by Alienfish. For those who prefer knitting flat, Lyles Knit also provides a pattern for that version as well by Anne.

They Must Exterminate crochet Whichever version you choose to make, I doubt anyone will mess with your eggs when a Dalek is watching over it!

Not much of an egg eater?  Just crochet or knit a small circular piece for the bottom, stuff and you have an amigurumi version of a dalek!
