Growing up, I always thought taking a chemistry class would be awesome. I figured that it would be all fun and games making stuff that oozed and blew up. Once I grew up and went to college, I finally took a chemistry class.
Your father wanted you to have this. It is the true weapon of a Jedi knight. Well… not the true weapon, those are dangerous. This one is soft. You are just an infant after all. You have a long way to go before you can wield a real lightsaber, my tiny padawan.
No, this isn’t a new toy for your feline friend, it’s a concept charger for your phone and/or other devices. While it makes sense to have something that’s longer than standards cords, I wonder if cats everywhere will rejoice upon seeing this charger that’s designed to look like a ball of yarn.
A while back crafter Nerdigurumi made up a fun Big Daddy amigurumi yarn figure while she had Bioshock on the brain. Now that she’s knee-deep in playing through Portal 2, it was time for a new creation – the Portal 2 amigurumi playset.
It’s kind of amazing the amount of detail that Ray Cannon is able to capture with his needle-felted designs. While I’ll probably never try this, I can appreciate the hard work that went into this. Ray makes quite a few different things with his needles, including this incredible E.T.
I love Kickstarter. It’s a great place for new and innovative ideas to get off the ground when they might have never made it in conventional start-ups. I’m not quite sure this is one of those great ideas, but it sure made me chuckle – and for that, it deserves a post.
While most of you were probably busy this past weekend killing splicers with your drill and protecting Little Sisters, one Bioshock fan out there was doing something a bit more productive.
While you were all sitting on your couches upgrading your plasmids, crafter Nerdigurumi (I love that name) got out the yarn and crocheted up this awesome little Big Daddy Bouncer in amigurumi form.
The world of Katamari Damacy is a strange one, to be sure, but it sure is cute. The Prince and his colorful cousins are each cuter than the others, and though the idea of sticking people and animals to a giant ball and then rolling them around is pretty horrific if you think about it, in Katamari, even this sort of dire torture manages to be adorable.
With winter around the corner, I could use a new scarf. But I’m not sure I’m confident enough in my own masculinity to walk around wearing this crocheted Super Mario Bros. Piranha Plant scarf around my neck.
I know we give Mario, Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Sonic plenty of geek craft love around here, but do you guys remember a little video game called Lemmings? I think I must have spent a million and one hours playing this game, despite the fact the concept really was just a 2-dimensional escort mission on steroids.
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.
“Hyperlink” is a series of oversized yarn sculptures that depict our favorite handy friend, the hyperlink hand cursor.
There are four cursor sculptures in the series. They are rendered in three dimensions and made more colorful than we’re used to.
Parappa the Rapper has got to be one of the greatest rhythm matching games of all time. From its whimsical 2D cartoon character designs to its hysterical lyrics, it’s a true classic. Now you can pay homage to the paper-thin Parappa by donning the same hat that the eponymous paper-thin dog wore in the game.
Check out these wacky crocheted 3-dimensional versions of Pac-Man and his cohorts.
Artist Carey Huffman hand knit these little versions of the yellow dot gobbler along with his ghostly pals Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. She’s even gone to the trouble to create this pattern guide for you to create your own.
