Pokémon Cushions

What’s a better thing to do with your old bed sheets than to upcycle them into lovely cushions covers?

These Pokémon cushions are made by Alien Couture, an UK-based website and Etsy store. Of course, the shop doesn’t limit itself to just Pokémon. What about a gigantic Rainbow Dash or some retro Super Mario? They even sell a cushion made of a Jurrassic Park sheet I own myself (made in 1992, the year I was born)!

Pokemon Badge Shadow Box Perler Display

Check out this Perler Bead Pokemon Badge display that a friend of mine made a couple of weeks ago for his girlfriend’s birthday. Awwwwww.

Shadow Box Pokemon Perler Bead Badges

He’s displayed the badges in a shadow box frame, set out from the backing on a few extra beads for that 3D look, and finished it with a Pokemon blue and yellow surround. The lady in question is apparently a huge Pokemon nut, so hopefully really appreciated his efforts! Who said romance was dead..?

Good job, Chubbs :P

It’s Easter!! And what better way to celebrate than an Easter egg hunt with Pokémon eggs?! Gotta find ’em all!

Yaltro on Flickr made this fantastic selection of Pokémon Easter eggs, with food dye, sharpies and white out. The first lot were made in 2011 and the second lot in 2012… I hope there’s a third lot on the way this year!

Why not give it a go yourself this Easter? My favourites from this lot are Psyduck and Snorlax! Do you have any other ideas for geeky Easter Eggs?

No, it’s not international food week on Geek Crafts. Around here, the sun is trying its best to keep the ponds from freezing, but it’s not working out too well. Bikini season seems years away. Plus, this weekend’s Easter. Eggs! Chocolate! Meat! It’s the perfect time of the year for food!

This Friday round-up I’d like to focus on kyaraben, short for character bento. Let’s see what Wikipedia can tell us about it…
