While many of the Doctor’s fashion choices have been rather questionable (“Hey, I’m the Doctor! I can save the universe with a kettle and some string and look at me! I’m wearing a vegetable!”), the bow tie is coming back! And the perfect accessory for any Whovian is this beautiful bow tie necklace.
Unique Geek (also known as Cecelia) from 3 Chic Geeks has posted a wonderful tutorial on making a quick, easy, and inexpensive bow tie necklace, hair clip, or just a regular clip on bow tie. All you need is some fabric (she used felt), matching thread, a needle, and some chain, jump rings, and a clasp. A few minutes of your time, and you’ll be ready to save the universe – just be sure to remember that fezzes are cool too. Happy crafting!
These home-made t-shirts at ilovetocreateblog look pretty great, and don’t appear to be too difficult to make.
I especially like the negative Yoda tee on the right, which looks like he might be standing in front of the lights of a spaceship. As usual, these methods could be applied to so many great and iconic geeky franchises. Just pick your favourite character/spaceship/vehicle/insignia and go nuts! Make sure you check out ilovetocreateblog to see how these tees were made.
Space…the final frontier…of altered clothing. Check out this cool tutorial I found: DIY Galaxy Pants. Prudence & Austere even offer a step-by-step tutorial with step-out photos. Very handy for getting the paint layering right.
This might be a cool effect to try on a black t-shirt, too.

Here I go again posting about cosplay and Star Wars, but this is a costume that you have to see to believe!
Qin, a Togorian (alien feline race) and Jedi master with a dark past. She is blind and her ears have been bifurcated, but she manages to see and hear anyway, as created by Qarrezel, over at Deviant Art. I love how beautiful this headpiece is, and I know if I ever ran into Qin somewhere, I’d need to touch her! There’s even an awesome video that I wish I could add here, but since I can’t, check it out here.
Semel posted a quilt she made, over at Crafster. “Made for a couple of very special trekkies for their wedding. It is queen sized, made with about 4500 2″ squares. I started it in April and just finished it Friday – in time for the wedding rehearsal!”
Patrick Stewart’s portrait graces the front of this quilt while the Star Fleet insignia is on the back, making this a reversible quilt.
Fun fact…Semel also made the Big Bang Theory/Sheldon quilt.
