A long time ago in a galaxy far far away… or possibly in LA. There was a tapestry to end all tapestries on display. The tapestry, tells the entire story of Star Wars in cross stitch with text, below is the artists description of the work.
A hand-stitched cotton thread on 30 foot of continuous length of 7 stitch per inch Klostern fabric. Stiffened with a thin batting and hemmed with a custom-made printed pixel star farbric on rear. This cross-stitch tapestry depicts the Star Wars saga (so far) from Episode 1 through Episode 6. Quotes from each movie are written in Aurebesh on the surrounding border. Chanelling the Bayeux Tapestry.
That is an epic work.
Erin from The Common Room, of Phoenix, AZ, has created the greatest seat belt cover I’ve ever seen! It’s based on Chewbacca’s ammo belt!
Attaching with velcro, this strap not only adds style but comfort! It can also be used on a messenger bag, guitar strap, back pack, or anything else you can think of with a strap!
It amazes me that it’s taken this long, since the first Star Wars movie, for someone to come up with an item like this one. Erin might very well be a genius! I just hope George Lucas doesn’t stop her from making these.
Twitter user Claire Little has a very unique Star Trek tattoo. It is the classic greeting in Vulcan calligraphy, “Live long and prosper.” Her tattoo was done by Sacred Rose Tattoo in Berkeley, CA.
I wasn’t able to track down any info on these wonderful rocking tauntauns, but I want one in an adult size for myself! They were posted anonymously to Geek Universe.
felony_melanie over at Reddit showed off the closet door and wall she recently painted to look like the TARDIS in outer space. felony_melanie is a professional artist, and this was for a little boy. He was in the hospital and when he came home this was in his room.
Her next mural is at a middle school to paint their rotunda like a South Carolina salt marsh.
