Halloween isn’t far off, and if you are still in need of some spooky accessories, this tutorial from the DIY Maven on Curbly has got you covered. The DIY Maven takes you step by step through making your own zombie pin out of polymer clay. Even if you’re new to polymer clay, you’ll find this tutorial easy to follow with it’s great pictures and clear instructions.
It may be time for back-to-school, but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to leave your love of Doctor Who behind. Check out this fun and super easy tutorial from Natalie at Doodlecraft, and you can make your own sonic screwdriver pens. You’ll be the envy of all the other students, plus no one will ever be able to steal your pens! This project would make a great party activity too. Have fun!

You gotta hand it to a girl with a nice pair of knockers. Indeed, Brittney Benjamin crafted hers herself, based on the talking door knockers in the movie Labyrinth. Working with two pounds of Sculpey and an old bra, she created some rather eye-catching cosplay. (Though it’s rude to stare.)
I remember watching Labyrinth in my youth, and vaguely remember being pretty scared by it. I should probably watch it again to see why. Probably just the sight of David Bowie in those pants.
Thanks to EPBOT I have found the greatest set of geeky cameos. If the title of the post didn’t make it clear I’m sure the Cookie Monster Cameo helps clear it up. Geek Goddess Creations has tons on hand crafted cameos following all sorts of crafty themes.
Look at that hand crafted beauty. She has a bunch of other fandoms as well. Mario, Pokemon, Doctor who, and a few more.
Have you ever seen something so cute you’ve actually squealed out loud? Of course you have; you’re a Geek Crafts reader. But seriously, I’ve just had the biggest cute-fest in weeks browsing through Quernus Crafts’ photostream over on Flickr, after seeing this incredibly wonderful mini sculpture:
It’s Mal Reynolds! From Firefly! But he’s a mouse!
I was a HUGE fan of Firefly (why, Fox, whyyy?) so was instantly drawn to this precious piece of polymer clay. But then I looked through some of the other things that Kirsten has made and found there was a goldmine of beautifully crafted figurines, and something for any type of geek. Harry Potter geeks, Terry Pratchett geeks, Comic Book geeks, Torchwood geeks, Hobbit geeks, Manga geeks, Dr Who geeks, Science geeks, Star Wars geeks, or just a geek who likes cute things.
Check out the Quernus Crafts website too, where you can shop or even commission your own Quernus creation. I am now deleting all my Quernus bookmarks though, because I’m scared I’ll just go and buy everything.
I don’t know much about Dee, the creator of this fine crustacean, but I do know that she is a magician with polymer clay. Snakes, bugs and Pokemon are her muses.
