Shiny Things

Monday, September 21st, 2015

I must admit, I’m a bit of a magpie at times. I love shiny things! So, when I found an Etsy shop called Shiny Things by Miyuka, filled with geeky and nerdy shiny things, I had to share some of the items!


Some mini gaming pins (A SNES pad, an old GameBoy and a 3DS):

A mini TARDIS pendant:

Kanto region badges from Pokémon:

They’re laser cut from reflective acrylic and assembled by hand. And all super shiny! There are many more items in the store, such as Zelda rupees, My Little Pony elements and super hero icons, so be sure to check it out!

Paper Piranha Plant Flowers

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

This blogger only ever received flowers once in her life – they were pretty but didn’t last long. A more permament and geeky alternative? These paper Piranha Plant flowers from Tally’s Treasury.



Tally’s Treasury provide a detailed guide (complete with templates) on how to make these yourself. If Piranha Plants aren’t your cup of tea, how about a bouquet of Fire Flowers? There’s a guide for that too!

Zelda Sage Medallions with Plaque

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

ChinookCrafts make some amazing things, like rupees and pieces of heart. But they also make these:




Armed with a laser cutter, they fashion not only the medallions but the plaque they sit in too. As their Etsy listing says, “Each Sage Temple Plaque comes with six perfectly cut decagon slots to house each of the Sage Medallions as seen in the Sage Temple, and in the Ocarina of Time menu system. To finish it off, a golden trim was added along with a beautiful Golden Triforce in the middle.”
Check out their Etsy store for these items and more laser-cut goodness!

It looks like it will cluck at any moment! Better not hit it, though.

Concrete Thwomp

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

I have a Thwomp in my bedroom, it is a plush and scarily accurate looking. However, being plush prevents it from being as accurate as this concrete masterpiece:

The maker wrote a how-to guide so everyone can have a Thwomp (if they want one, that is. And why wouldn’t you?) I have to say, I never thought of using concrete for a craft project!

ZF-1 Blueprint

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

After some great feedback on his recent lightsaber blueprint, Sprite Stitch’s Lord Libidan decided to do another. This time he’s chosen a weapon from his favourite movie, The Fifth Element.


The gun is called the ZF-1 and the blueprint shows all of its different features in wonderfully stitched detail. Fantastic job, LL!
