Bundles of Joy: Geeky Amigurumi on Etsy

Bundles of Joy: Geeky Amigurumi on Etsy
Crochet connoisseur Rin aka deadcraft aka oddgumi makes wonderful dolls of personalities both fictional and real, as long as they’re awesome. I am confident that a Barney Stinson doll is in the works. Let’s look at some her creations: Now that’s something you don’t see everyday.

Metroid Amigurumi: Samus Aran Gone Soft

Metroid Amigurumi: Samus Aran Gone Soft
Oh, Samus. Even when you’re all sexed up in your Zero Suit, or Justin Baileyed into your bikini, you’re still supposed to be an icon of female strength and power (and just generally bad to the bone).

Amigurumi: Cutifying Even the Worst of Alien Horrors

Amigurumi: Cutifying Even the Worst of Alien Horrors
There’s not much that’s cute about EA’s Dead Space. The very name is terrifying, and the game’s Necromorphs are among some of gaming’s most disturbing creatures. Basically, it’s the worst candidate for amigurumi ever… and yet, look!

Crochet Tom Servo Will Make Fun of Your Yarn Projects

Crochet Tom Servo Will Make Fun of Your Yarn Projects
Everybody can stop with the geek-inspired crochet projects now. The contest is over and MageAkyla of Crafster has won the whole thing with this brilliant crochet Tom Servo from MST3k. The only way this project could be any better is if it were bigger, or if there were thousands of crochet Tom Servos, or if MST3k was back on the air.

Royal & Practical: Princess Toadstool Scarf With Pockets

Royal & Practical: Princess Toadstool Scarf With Pockets
Gege Crochet loves scarves. I think “scarves” is a weird word. Fortunately Gege’s scarves are anything but weird, like this nice Princess Toadstool scarf. She said that she made this scarf to complement a Mario scarf that she also made.

The Cutest Crochet R2-D2 You Will See Today

The Cutest Crochet R2-D2 You Will See Today
…and maybe ever. What makes this particular example of Star Wars amigurumi better than, say, crochet slave Leia or an adorable Chewbacca? Buttons and fittings. Oh, not just the little shiny button eyes–those are common, and this R2D2 has his own.

Guitar Hero Scarf Produced by Crochet Hero

Guitar Hero Scarf Produced by Crochet Hero
Scarves are pretty popular as the geekier crafts go, with everything from the real Punch-Out!! (in the Mike Tyson days) to Space Invaders getting the wintry neckwear treatment. But few examples can match both the artistry and dedication that went into creating this Guitar Hero scarf.

Creepy-Yet-Cute Amigurumi Bunnies

Creepy-Yet-Cute Amigurumi Bunnies
It’s official: amigurumi can make anything cute, from vomiting zombies to, well, just about everything in Moon Yen’s “Moon Buns” crochet series. The Moon Buns are all bunnies, sure, but not just any bunnies. These little guys have the soft bodies and long ears… as well as pins stuck in their faces, fangs, and occasionally, tentacles.

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi
Let’s be frank here: Left 4 Dead’s zombies are kind of gross. There’s the Smoker, who has a truly gargantuan tongue that shoots out, often from some distance, only to wrap you in deadly zombie saliva, and there’s the Boomer, whose projectile vomit summons a flood of other undead, and of course, creepy Witches, massive Tanks, and annoying Hunters.

Put a Sackboy on Your Head

Put a Sackboy on Your Head
There is a glut of Sackboy stuff out in the wilds of the internet, celebrating everything LittleBigPlanet. You can get soft Sackboy dolls and spend your days watching videos of Sackboys (and girls) cavorting in custom levels, but if there’s one thing we’ve lacked, it’s Sackboy clothing.

Robotroyshka Dolls Will Conquer You With Cuteness

Robotroyshka Dolls Will Conquer You With Cuteness
These robotroyshka dolls are one tricky mashup: they combine Russian nesting dolls, crochet, and robots into one deliciously adorable blend. I spotted these on the crafster forums. The ever-clever RhymeswOrange crocheted them by hand, and each one has a different felty face!

Pac-Man Ghost Hats Gobble Heads, Not Dots

Pac-Man Ghost Hats Gobble Heads, Not Dots
I can’t decide if these Pac-Man skull caps are awesome or just weird. Let’s just go with awesomely weird. The colorful ghosts of video games past make yet another appearance, this time as crocheted hats. Crafter ShadowsInTheNyte hand knits these goofy ghost hats to look like familiar video game characters.

Super Mario Afghan is Super Special

Super Mario Afghan is Super Special
I’ve been keeping my eyes on the work in progress for this impeccable Super Mario Brothers afghan throw, and I’m happy to report that the masterpiece is finally complete. It took North Carolina crafter Tracy Thomasson (aka ‘thomcatdesigns’) 71 days to crochet this beauty, featuring the likenesses of Mario, Koopa and a Goomba as they go about their everyday lives in the Mushroom Kingdom.

Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed

Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed
Who says that Star Wars has to be all about manly things like lightsabers, Death Stars and Darth Vader? Why can’t it be about butterflies, puppies and playing with dolls? Crafter Sammi Resendes of Geek Central Station sure thinks that the classic sci-fi epic can be just as sweet as a roomful of cuddly kittens rolled in confectioners sugar.

Rock Band Drum Kit Quieted by Crochet Covers

Rock Band Drum Kit Quieted by Crochet Covers
Is your Rock Band drumming keeping the neighbors awake all night long? Are they ready to call the police on you? If that’s the case, look no further than these soft and cozy crocheted covers designed to quiet your percussive emissions.

Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out Scarf is a Real T.K.O.

Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out Scarf is a Real T.K.O.
One of the greatest boxing games of all time has been immortalized in wearable form. This oh-so-awesome handknit scarf features the fighters from the NES classic Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! Created by El Paso crafter Beatboxtaun, the scarf features the likenesses of two of the game’s pixelated pugilists.
