Doctor Who Damask Tardis Women’s Oxfords

Ask most women and they will probably tell you that you can’t have enough shoes. SewWhatByMonica, an Etsy seller from San Antonio, has created a must have pair of shoes for any female Whovian.

Each pair of oxford shoes are purchased brand new. A water-based sealer and finish is used on the fabric areas, where there are fancy little TARDISES (TARDI?) in the pattern. SewWhatByMonica also uses black acrylic paint to finish the fabric ends.

Or if damask and the TARDIS are not your thing, there’s also a pair available in Gallifreyan writing on them.

The Winter Soldier Fingerless Mitts

So today in the states at least a lovely movie came out. Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Go see it, its fun and a great conspiracy meets Superhero type movie. I even wrote a review here, there is a break before the spoilers if you want to take a read.  So in that fashion I wanted a Winter Soldier Geek Craft for today. I mean he shares the name of the movie with Cap, and  I’ve already posted a Captain America Sweater.

So this time it’s the Winter Soldier.  This free pattern by Maratini on Ravelry are a perfect way to get a fun fiber made metal arm. Much better than being captured and experimented on by evil organizations I would say.  And that whole losing an arm bit. That doesn’t seem like any fun.

Game of Thrones Crafts: House Sigil Stamps

Game of Thrones House Sigil Stamps by This is Just to Say Co

With the premiere of Season 4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones a mere week away, are you itching to do a Game of Thrones craft? Get ready to wrap your Hand of the King around these hand-carved Game of Thrones House Sigil Stamps.

Tyr at This Is Just to Say has stamps for House Stark, House Lannister and House Targaryen. I think they’d be perfect for creating invites for a watch party, or maybe even stamping on some fabric to make a one-of-a-kind scarf or skirt.

Which House would you support, and what would you make with the stamps?

Geek Crafts Are Not Just For Adults

Flat Head Syndrome affects roughly 48% of babies and requires them to wear a helmet as treatment. The helmets are generally white and look like ordinary head fixing helmets (not that there’s anything wrong with that). But artist Paula Strawn isn’t going to let babies go around in some boring old helmet. She makes a living painting the helmets to be more than a medical apparatus, but a work of art.

Look how cute and happy this little guy looks with his “new” helmet! It looks like Anakin Skywalker’s pod race helmet. Check out the link above to see some of her other designs. Paula has a great eye for what would be really eye catching and cute for babies to wear.

WOW What a banner!

Crochet Horde banner by Kristin Dragos

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, my family of geeks has long been fans of the massively multi-player online role playing game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft (WoW). And as long as they’ve been playing, they’ve always played Horde. So I was quite pleased when I ran across this crochet Horde banner by Kristin Dragos.

When I showed it to my husband, he told me it would be ok if I made it for him. :) I think it would also make a great addition to my son’s dorm room.

What about you? Are you Horde or Alliance?
