Winter is Coming

With the season 2 premiere of Game of Thrones tonight, I felt the need to find some crafts inspired by this amazing series (both books and tv show). After searching Etsy, I was automatically drawn to the bracelet made by Luna Designs 101.

The House of Stark bracelet is a very simple and understated piece of jewelry that any Game Of Thrones fan would be happy to having in their collection. The small wolf charm on the end of a cord, is enough for the wearer to know what it means and feel like they’re keeping it a secret.

Back in my day, vampires were awesome..

I’m here to shake my fist at ya’ll and tell you to get off my lawn as I reminisce about how amazing Buffy the Vampire Slayer was. WeeLittleStitches offers a variety of fantastic cross-stitch patterns that traverse all genres of geek. In fact, it was hard for me to select which one to feature in this post (I was really close to Golden Girls because dang, that was a good show) but it is really, really hard to beat Buffy (yes, including 6th season…I don’t get the hate!). Important note- Dawn has been left out. Heh!

Sherlock’s Cameo Appearance

Sherlock's Cameo AppearanceWe’re back visiting those unemployed Death Eaters at Death Eaters Delights again today because Qui has created the most amazing cameos.  It’s elementary that any Sherlock fan would love to wear one of these handcrafted Sherlock cameos when they’re out deducing the best way to enjoy the evening.  Measuring just under two inches, the brooch is dimensional and made of hard resin.

Cameos may be purchased with or without pin backing or as a cameo ribbon choker.

Qui also has plans in the works for creating a Doctor Watson cameo as well.

Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Whimey Jewelry

You’ll have to forgive me for posting about Doctor Who twice in a row, but I was unable to control my excitement when I came across this jewelry.

Anyone who knows me well, knows I really love hand stamped jewelry. Whether it’s hand stamped leather, or hand stamped metal, I think it’s one of the prettiest and simplest pieces of jewelry a girl can own. However, I hadn’t ever searched for hand stamped fandom jewelry. When I clicked search on Etsy at this time, I had no idea I could never go back.

I immediately was drawn to the work done at Chasing at Starlight on Etsy. The fonts for the many different items (I’m a font harlot), along with all the jewelry for my many different fandoms (Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Sherlock), made me completely geek out.

All of them are so beautifully made! They’ve made my list for my next geek jewelry purchase!

Is there a Doctor in the Tardis?

Is there a Doctor in the Tardis?Yes, there is and not just one but eleven Doctors.

Pixelated Mushroom, who describes herself as a “Librarian based in Australia who likes to knit, crochet, juggle and firetwirl (but not all at once)”, has completed crochet patterns for mini versions of all eleven regenerations of Doctor Who as well the Tardis.  She’s compiled them into a wonderful PDF Collection that you can download here.

Accessories Sold Separately

As promised, I come bearing geekiness as gleaned from Mr X Stitch at the Stitch and Craft show…

I am, frankly amazed (and a little appalled) at myself for never having come across Lord Libidan before. His work is amazing – generally centered around video games, and packed full of original, interesting ideas.

The Transformers, sewn onto plastic canvas, actually transform. Oh yes. There’s Jetfire &  Optimus Prime (as seen here) who of course become a plane and a truck respectively – and also a couple of tapes; Ratbat & Laserbeak, which will fit into the soon-to-come Soundwave/tapedesk. I love that they are based on the original toys, not the new versions – tres retro chic. And (this is the best bit) all of the patterns are all available from his Etsy Shop. Huzzah!

This Pokemon image is stitched stereoscopically – so if you put on red & blue 3D glasses (great fashion choice, btw) it pops out at you. Excuse me while I cry at the awesomeness.

This manbroiderer may not really be a lord, but I agree with him; he should be.
