Heather Kostal posted her handmade Greedo toothbrush holder to Craftster way back in 2006. But I’ve just discovered it because I’m on kind of a Greedo kick right now.
Heather made this for her husband a few years before she even posted it. She used to have access to a kiln, so it is just hand-built clay, then kiln fired and glazed. She said they took it out of their bathroom because with arrival of both a dog and a baby, it was getting knocked around. Now that it has resurfaced, she realized they all have electric toothbrushes which can no longer be accommodated by Greedo’s bulbous head.
Knightsgarrison recently posted her Ahsoka Tano/Harley Quinn mashup on Imgur, because a friend (pictured above) wanted to cosplay as Ahsoka at Star Wars Celebration, but knowing that Ahsoka is to Star Wars as Harley Quinn is to literally every other con in the world, we figured…they’d just do both. It was her first time building something so involved and she learned (and screwed up) a lot along the way. She’s pretty proud of the results.
The seams drove her crazy. Luckily, it’s canon that Ahsoka sometimes wears head/lekku jewelry, so she bought some studded ribbon and glued it on. It doesn’t hide everything, but it helps a lot.
Total build time was 24 hours, spread it out over a month, and the total cost was about $100.
And as a total score, Knightsgarrison’s friend got a picture with the voice of Ahsoka herself: Ashley liked it so much she asked her assistant to take a picture with her own phone.
According to Roadside America, there is an AT-AT Walker mailbox in Kansas City, MO. It’s reported the homeowner made it himself, after a drunk driver took out the original, and that it’s anchored with six feet of rebar and 500 pounds of concrete. It’s not going anywhere if another driver hits it.
BenaeQuee of Brooklyn just posted these ballet flats on Craftster, and I lurv them!!
She took a pair of shoes she bought last year for another project and used her new Star Wars Floral Wars fabric on them. She also added fine holo glitter to give a little sparkle to this already fabulous fabric. The fabric is a cotton woven from Knitorious Fabric.
And such pretty fabric as it is! I love this project because of the sketched look to the fabric’s designs, it’s Star Wars-themed, and because while the shoes aren’t identical, they still match.
In just a day, I’m going away for Christmas. I’ll be leaving a place that’s currently 66 degrees and going to a place that’s -5 degrees. As a project to help pass the time on my flights, and something to keep me warm once I’m there, I’ll be crocheting Kristen Stevenson’s Yub Nub (Ewok hood) scoodie. This is a free pattern on Ravelry, but you will need to make a username and password to get it.
I am going to make one change to it though. Kristen has directions on how to make the Ewok ears. However, I’m going to find a thrift store once I get a chance, buy a really nice looking teddy bear, and cut off his ears to attach to the hood, for just a touch more realism.
And if you aren’t familiar with the Ewoks, they are a fictional race of small, mammaloid bipeds that appear in the Star Wars universe. They are hunter-gatherers resembling teddy bears that inhabit the forest moon of Endor and live in various arboreal huts and other simple dwellings. They first appeared in the 1983 film Star Wars Ep. VI: Return of the Jedi, and have since appeared in two made-for-television films, Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure (1984) and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (1985), as well as a short-lived animated series and several books and games.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Mia posted her mini R2-D2 pattern back in 2002, on her crochet site. This Mini R2-D2 measures about 17cm. The idea to make R2-D2 came to Mia from a birthday gift for a friend, who really likes Star Wars.
This time, Mia decided to innovate and used some LEDs on R2-D2, so, it works as a small lamp. But the pattern can be worked without the electronic parts. You can replace the LEDs for some buttons.
The difficult part of this pattern it isn’t the crochet, but the collage, because there are to many details to cut and glue! Mia recommends to pay attention on the photos and to search on the web for R2-D2 photos, so, you can have a good idea of what you will need to do.
