Printables for a Doctor Who Party

Doctor Who printable cupcake toppers

Planning a Who-a-Thon for New Year’s Eve? I’ve got just what you need to invite friends and decorate! Kristi Duggins, aka Bohemian Bear on Etsy, has a whole slew of Doctor Who-related printables to help you get ready in a flash – no sonic screwdriver required!

Use her Printable Invitation to entice friends to attend, her DIY Bunting set to adorn your TARDIS (you have one in the corner, right?), and her Starry Night Circles to top a set of blue cupcakes.

Then when the evening is done, you can scrapbook your memories (any that the Silence didn’t steal, that is!) with her Starry Night Scrapbook set. For additional scrapbooking fodder, you can also check out the RetroDiva “Call the Doctor” digital scrapbook set I featured previously.

Which Doctor Who episode would you choose to have playing at the strike of midnight?

Holiday Gift Idea: Dr. Who TARDIS Snuggie

TARDIS Snuggie

I can’t really say it any better than the original poster of this geekcraft – the perfect gift for “what to give the fan WHO has everything:” a Dr. Who TARDIS Snuggie.

How clever is this? Take a regular blue Snuggie, and, ahem, Doctor it up into a TARDIS. Love her tip for printing the “Public Telephone” verbiage onto a cotton panel then ironing it on.

Can you think of a Who fan on your list who might appreciate this gift? Or perhaps just maybe yourself?

I Wear A Bow Tie Now. Bow Ties Are Cool.

While many of the Doctor’s fashion choices have been rather questionable (“Hey, I’m the Doctor! I can save the universe with a kettle and some string and look at me! I’m wearing a vegetable!”), the bow tie is coming back! And the perfect accessory for any Whovian is this beautiful bow tie necklace.

Doctor Who Bow Tie Necklace

Unique Geek (also known as Cecelia)  from 3 Chic Geeks has posted a wonderful tutorial on making a quick, easy, and inexpensive bow tie necklace, hair clip, or just a regular clip on bow tie. All you need is some fabric (she used felt), matching thread, a needle, and some chain, jump rings, and a clasp. A few minutes of your time, and you’ll be ready to save the universe – just be sure to remember that fezzes are cool too. Happy crafting!

A Little Bit of Summertime Cosplay

I love the amount of work and care that goes into a good cosplayer’s costume, even more so when it’s genderbending the original character. There’s a lot of stuff to be taken into consideration when you’re turning Tonto, for example, into a female.

“Baker Jenny Rae of Lil Rae Cupcakes is a huge Johnny Depp fan who has an impressive collection of handmade aprons that she wears at her shop. When she saw Depp as Tonto in the upcoming The Lone Ranger film, she decided to make an apron in his honor, but went a step further and even made a headpiece and donned his makeup.” BTW, Jenny Rae mentioned on her FB page, linked above, that she’s going to see “The Lone Ranger” on the Disney lot in Burbank. Pretty cool!

The Girl Who Waited

Today, we have another project by SpeakGeekAndEnter, a regular poster over at Crafter. SGAE was last featured here in March 2013 for the Daryl Dixon plush from “The Walking Dead.” Today’s entry is Amy Pond, “The Girl Who Waited.”

‘I’ve been working to try and add in more details to my plushies — since most of my plushies are one of a kind dolls, I figure I might as well make them the very best, with as many details, as I can. I used silver metallic thread for her ‘zipper’ which I loveeeee. And bonus, I even got to use some of those “fancy” stitches on my machine that I never thought I’d use.”

And if you’re interested in getting your own Amy Pond doll, SGAE still has an Etsy store by the same name.

Introducing Beth Lynn!

bethlynnHello all!  I figured that since I’m brand new here, I may as well introduce myself!  (And introduce one of my most favorite projects, as well.)  I’ll be posting every Sunday afternoon, sharing my favorite geeky crafts from around the Internet!

As you may already have noticed, my name’s Beth Lynn.  I live with my husband Bryan, as well as four betta fish and a ridiculous collection of My Little Ponies, in beautiful Bloomington, Indiana.  I’m working on a second masters degree, in Information Science, and when I’m not nose deep in homework, I’m doing some sort of awesome geeky craft project!  I’ve been geeky as long as I can remember – I was an early reader (my mom claims I started reading before I was 2!), I’ve been playing video games since the tender age of five, and my mom was a Trekkie, so I’ve always been surrounded by wonderful nerdy things.  I’ve also been crafting since I was tiny, making tiny puppets when I was 8 and making doll clothes when I was 12.  As I got older, I started making bigger projects, like blankets, stuffed animals, and costumes!
