Bahamut Dungeons and Dragons Cake

I don’t play Dungeons and Dragons, but I do love regular dragons so I appreciate how awesome this cake is. PLUS it has  raspberry compote filling, and  buttercream frosting! Craftster user olmulekiller made this gorgeous 12 inch layer buttermilk cake and covered it in geeky goodness. And it’s not fondant, it’s real frosting, which makes it so much more impressive. It’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost…

Barcode Chandelier

Barcode ChandelierGeekSugar, where I found this amazing chandelier, poses the question “Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?”  My vote is definitely GEEK CHIC!!  This is so cool, I’m not sure how anyone would think it’s too geeky.  It’s supposedly the barcode for Twinkies, but aside from buying a box and comparing the numbers, I can’t validate that claim.  (Any readers have a box of Twinkies handy?)   The link for image is broken (boo!) and a name, super-mobilet, is unfortunately the only info I can find for who actually made/sold this chandelier.  Looks like I’ll be creating my own instead!

1 Up Mushroom Quilt

Craftster user shan-E-bear made this “Mario 1up mushroom quilt of doom!” and it looks so cool! She said: “I was flipping through all the wonderful quilty and non quilty creations and I stumbled upon a mario pixel quilt, the husband who was playing video games behind me, went “awesome!” hence the birth of our first quilt together! And I did make him help!” I love how pixelated games translate so well into crafts like quilting, because then we get awesome stuff like this!

So long and thanks for all the fish!

So long and thanks for all the fish! Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is probably one of the greatest movies of all time.  The opening credits are one of my favorite parts of the movie, and Craftster user  Tracey_K made this needlework bundle-of-awesome as a housewarming gift!   I’ve never worked with metallic thread before, and she says it is no fun to work with… however, it looks amazing!!  The colors work perfectly, and font selection is spot on – this so tops my current favorite crafts!  (and inspires me to finally finish my own cross stitch)  Kudos, Tracey_K, I love it!

Minecraft Pixel Art Sculptures

Why limit your crafting to ‘real’ life when there’s a whole virtual world out there to bend to your will! (cue maniacal laugh MUAHHAHAHA!)

The residents of the minecraft server Ambar (owned by Angry Dinosaur) have created these glorious pixel art sculptures depicting some of their favourite Nintendo characters. Also, check out that rainbow bridge, reminds me of Mario Kart.

Check out Angry Dinosaur’s minecraft gallery
to see some of the other amazing sculptures that the residents have made in this virtual environment…. I don’t play Minecraft… but I hear it’s what all the geeks are doing nowadays!
