Not All Geek Crafts Have To Be Permanent

Sometimes, some of the most stunning of crafts can be edible and insanely easy. This is one of them.

The poster of this craft wrote that his/her friend created this portrait of Sir Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard out of ketchup, mustard, hoisin sauce, and bleu cheese. There’s no other information available about it, but it’s popped up all over the Internet. Personally, the only thing I can think to say about it is, “Mr. Data, let’s stop for a snack. Warp Factor Trisket!”

Star Trek Dresser

Demostheness posted a photo of a custom paint job, Star Trek-style, a friend of her’s did on a dresser.

The font is from “The Next Generation” series, but the colors and the insignia are from the original series. It’s a seamless joining of the generations! I mean, now her friend has a place to keep all of her uniforms, but hopefully, she keeps the red shirts somewhere else!

Star Trek Craft: ComBadge Earrings

Star Trek ComBadge earrings by Tally Heilke

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!

Star Trek Craft: Bajoran Earring

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.

Star Trek Pop Art Limited Edition Art Prints

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).

Just in Time For Whatever Holiday You Celebrate!

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.
