Flickr user Caroline (AKA Carexcore) stitched up this awesome – and totally badass – Stegosaurus on an iPhone case. Her Flickr photostream is filled with all sorts of clever geekiness like this, but I’m a total sucker for dinosaurs.
Happy birthday Captain Kirk! That’s right folks, The Shat turned 82 today. I’d be remiss if I didn’t celebrate it in my own little way, namely by geeking out over awesome Kirk inspired crafts. This particular one by tinyairplanes caught my eye, not only because it’s beautifully embroidered, but because it pays homage to the actor behind the character.
It’s an amazing embroidered tribute to the awesome Eddie Izzard by Pam! Look at the beautiful satin stitching! I came across this while browsing through the pool in the Geek Crafts Flickr Group and immediately started to giggle. Yes, I actually lol’d. But who doesn’t lol at Eddie Izzard’s stand-up? The man is hilarious! And he can rock a pair of stilettos. Oh, you haven’t heard of him? Click here to be enlightened! (Slightly NSFW because of slightly spicy language.)
Fun fact! Not only is Eddie Izzard one of the funniest comedians out there, he’s also a great serious actor. He played the bad guy in one of my favourite shows, the Day of the Triffids mini-series that aired in 2009! He also starred as Grandpa Munster in last year’s Munsters remake, 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
Who knew fungi could be so pretty? Besides Carolyn, I mean. She’s a PhD student and these “furry friends” are actual fungi that’s she’s studying in the lab. She was so smitten with them that she decided to stitch them up as a decoration for her desk. I love it! You should definitely check out her blog, Allspice Abounds, for a more detailed explanation of this piece and some great close-up shots of the stitches.
And for all you 90s nerds out there, see if you can spot the Wayne’s World reference in her post.
