Stay in touch with your away team with these fantastic Star Trek ComBadge Earrings. Tally Heilke provides a full tutorial on her blog. Not exactly a typical Father’s Day sort of craft, but suitable for me, since my dad was the one who initiated me into the world of Star Trek.
As a scrapbooker with a basement full of paper stash, I was intrigued to see the earrings are made out of cardstock! Plus it’s an excuse to break out some power tools! <insert Tim Allen-esque grunting>
Are you planning any Star Trek cosplay for upcoming cons? These would be the perfect accessory!

Being a fan of all things Star Trek, I was pleased to find this write-up on designing a Bajoran earring by Patrick Hassel-Zein.
If you’re familiar with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, you would have seen Major Kira almost always sporting a Bajoran earring on her right ear. Ensign Ro Laren also wore one on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
On his webpage, Patrick provides a little historic look into the Bajoran earring, and then offers some suggestions for designing your own.

I don’t know what it is about these two prints, but something about them just speaks to me. I need them both for my living room.
Illustrated by Kevin Keeton of London in 2012, he’s now given these two prints a home on Etsy. They are printed on photographic acid free paper with non toxic water based inks. The prints come in four different sizes: 15cm × 21 cm (Medium); 21cm × 30 cm (Large); 30cm × 42 cm (X-Large); and 42cm x 60 cm (XX-Large).
You know what would really bring this room together? A Spock candle! And as luck would have it, Hollywood Soul on Etsy has just such a candle!
This white wax candle stands 8″ tall, will burn for around 7 days, and features Spock, as portrayed by Leonard Nimoy. However, if your home or altar or whatever needs decorating, and Spock isn’t quite what you’re needing, Hollywood Soul has candles that feature The Dude, Miley Cyrus, Bill Murray, Steve Buscemi and loads of other celebrities in Photoshopped religious settings.
Mirror mirror on the wall, whose the most logical of them all? That’s an easy question to answer when you’re talking about Mr. Spock!
GlassKissinCreations, an Etsy store in Latrobe, PA, has created a one of a kind stained glass mirror of our favorite Vulcan.
It’s made from black stained glass, cream stained glass, mirror, copper foil, solder, and copper wire. His eyebrows are painted on, and the mirror measures 10 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.
Twitter user Claire Little has a very unique Star Trek tattoo. It is the classic greeting in Vulcan calligraphy, “Live long and prosper.” Her tattoo was done by Sacred Rose Tattoo in Berkeley, CA.
