Harry Potter Trunk of Spells

Harry Potter Trunk of SpellsOh, man, do I love these One Tiny Thing swaps on Craftster. Yes, yes, I’ve posted many times how much I love tiny things, but I’m going to say it again. I LOVE tiny things. And the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing swaps seem to yield the awesome-est tiny things of all. This trunk of spells by Craftster user technogoddess is just amazing. Look at all those itty bitty bottles and viles and spellbooks and even a teeny tiny bubbling cauldron! I’m in love!

Synthetic Division Out Of Time

Remember a long, long time ago, when we interviewed author Shawn Decker about his book My Pet Virus? Well, the thing about Shawn is he is a geek chic trifecta. In addition to writing an amazing memoir he is also a member of Synthetic Division (how’s that for a geeky band name?), and their latest video, Out of Time, was too good not to share. Yes, those are Lego Men, in a teeny Playmobil hospital. Yes, that is synth pop. Yes their band is named after math. Yes, it is pure, golden fried awesome!

Weeping Angel Statue (with Tutorial!)

I’m a massive Dr Who fan. I love the old stuff, but I’ve got to say, hands down, the weeping angels are the best villains from the newer series’.

Craftster user Fayeven has really blown my mind this week by taking an old unwanted Barbie doll and converting it into a super creepy weeping angel statuette.

I don’t know about you, I’d LOVE to have one of these in my house, but I’d also be kinda afraid too, luckily Fayeven has reassured us:

“… do not worry for me who fans, I am placing a mirror directly opposite her so she will be trapped.”

Good thinking Fayeven!

Anyone like me considering re-purposing their old Barbies is in luck, as Fayeven has shared a tutorial on how you can make your own Creepy Weeping Angel Doll over on her blog and on Craftster.

Paper Goldeneye Remote Mines

I found this sweet website called Cut Score Fold and Glue that posts instructions about how to make your own paper sculptures. There are many many geeky posts for you to check out, but after searching specifically for Goldeneye 64 crafts,  I found (among numerous other creations) the instructions on how to cut/score/fold/glue remote mines!

I’m guessing they wouldn’t give quite the same satisfaction of throwing them in the game when they’re made out of paper, but maybe you could put one of those stick-on bathroom air fresheners inside to give it some weight/stickability. (That’s what the remote mines always reminded me of.)
