I have a soft spot for R2-D2 and I think this beanie is just precious! Karen, of KarenJCreations on Etsy, crochets a wide variety of character hats in sizes to fit everyone from newborns to adults. I could see myself giving this cutie to some of my geek friends as an off-registry baby gift.
Driving through my neighborhood the other day, I saw a really impressive snow sculpture (two horses- seriously cool, and BIG) and it got me thinking about how bad I want to make a snow”man”. Sooo, despite the fact I just said how sick I am of winter… I’m hoping for one more good snow day so I can get to work!
A quick Google search leads you to around a billion snowdaleks, so I decided to just feature the best one. I searched multiple sources, and made my decision…
Congratulations Afraid of Ducks/ Mark Merifield of London, you have the best snowdalek! Amazing attention to proportion, scale and detail… you win 1000 internets and all bragging rights!!
It’s moments like that in which we seek a little inspiration…and this pimpin’ Locutus of Borg Serenity Prayer is there to remind us that indeed, resistance is futile.
Infusing classic New England needlework with pop and hip-hop culture references, Steotch is also responsible for such beauties as Bless This House and a Star Wars inspired version of the Serenity Prayer.

10. Unicorn Bookmark
The perfect way to hold your place in your favorite book. It is simple and elegant, but the colorful jewels lead to the little unicorn trinket. A discrete way to boast geek girl pride.
Hang your Unicorn pride around your neck with this clay necklace. This delicate piece captures the grace of the mythical beast, and the sparkling eye will capture attention.
This adorable unicorn is embroidered in bold colors on a heart fabric background. This little guy has some major personality with his spiky hair, flaring nostrils, and flower collar.
Everyone could use a cuddle Unicorn. This pattern for Luna will help you make a Unicorn army to take over the world with… or at least to snuggle with. Make one for every geeky girl you know and spread the Unicorn word.
This little Valentine Unicorn was sculpted from Polymer Clay. Her big eyes and swirly pink hair might be a cuteness overload for some, but shouldn’t everyone make an exception for cuteness on Valentines day?
We interrupt all of the previous cuteness with a revelation on the origins of rainbows. This 4×4 print says it all. Position it above your computer so the Unicorn appears to pour rainbow geekiness into your monitor.
This shirt makes me want to visit my mom’s ranch and wear it while horseback riding. Either that, or wear it while beating my friends in some Mario Cart.
3. Unicorn Hat
This hat is perfect if you want to tell the world about your Unicorn/Geek status. However, it might make it a little awkward if your friend is wearing the shirt featured in #4!
Some people appreciate a good trophy. This crochet Unicorn’s name is Matthew, and he perhaps got bested by a geek girl who then decided to show him off. Matthew is sure to make visitors do a double take.
The last in this roundup is an icon for many geek girls. The Last Unicorn is a book and movie that many grew up loving. This little plushie made from microplush, faux fur, and faux suede also has a wire skeleton that makes her poseable. The crafter artist did a great job of bringing to life our favorite Unicorn.
This might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in awhile. DeviantArt user morgoththeone painted this Justice League wall mural in her living room. Click through to see it bigger. The details and shading are amazing and I love how she added shadows to make it look 3-D. You can also see some photos of her progression here.
