I absolutely love it when readers tell us about their DIY projects—especially stuff like this Firefly-themed bedroom from Poppy of Whimsical Frippery. We salute anyone that’s willing to devote a part of their home entirely to a fandom.

Poppy was going for an ‘Inara’s shuttle’ vibe, which she pulled off nicely—though candles and incense smoke don’t make for the best photos. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

sailor-moon-masking-tape

There’s a joke out there that says the Force is like duct tape; it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the galaxy together. I keep thinking there’s a version for this totally bonkers (but awesome) Sailor Moon masking tape set, but I can’t quite figure it out.

Still, the point is that this set, comprised of 10 different printed rolls of Sailor Moon masking tape and two tape dispensers in the shape of the Crystal Star and a Cosmic Heart, exists in the world. No bedazzled toolbox should be without it. Oh wait, it’s a $115 set of tape. Nevermind.

Unfortunately, for this Death Star Bean Bag Chair to be fully operational, you’ll have to fill it yourself. The $100 price tag only gets you the cover. It shouldn’t be surprising though—the Death Star is well known for being a money pit.

Jen Yates of Cake Wrecks and Epbot definitely knows how to throw a party. This year, she combined her love of DIY decorating, great food and cosplay for her Harry Potter-themed Christmas party.

Treats and decorations included treacle tarts, cauldron cakes, a HoneyDukes table, Fire Whiskey, floating candles, and even a Diagon Alley. Guests came in costume and were treated to a scavenger hunt among other activities. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

I have a tape measure that only cost a few bucks. It works fine. So why in the hell do I want a tape measure that costs $25? R2-D2—that’s why. Same reason I wanted this R2-D2 screwdriver set (at least that’s on sale for $9.99 at the moment). It’s a sickness.

Needless to say, this table will wow guests even as it sucks them into another universe. The decor features a circular glass top and a black acrylic rib and ring structure that plunges downward into a central hole containing an infinity mirror illuminated by LEDs.

Just look at this gorgeous periodic table lamp! So colorful. So sciencey. It’s even up to date! Instructables user makendo notes:

“This instructable documents my efforts to reimagine a 3D periodic table of the elements, using modern making methods. It’s based on the structure of a chiral nanotube, and is made from a 3D printed lattice, laser cut acrylic, a lazy susan bearing, 118 sample vials and a cylindrical lamp.”

jjml_d20_string_lights

Man, I wish I had these D20 String Lights when I put up my tree the other day. Part of my brain is like “there’s still time!” while the other part is like “re-stringing lights would be a pain in the ass!”.

Okay laziness, you win this round.

If you’re more ambitious than I am, now is the time to grab them. These are the kind of string lights you can have fun with year round. The bulbs can be easily replaced and the lights can be used indoors or out. [click to continue…]

For a feline buddy named Dinni, Prefabcat designed and built this cardboard tower dubbed the “Cat Ark”.

The project involved the use of heavy duty cardboard, a hot glue gun, and bread and craft knives. The result boasts ramps, pull-out stepping shelves, windows and a monster head balcony.

The video below confirms that Dinni is using the new structure, though he is probably perturbed that his ark can’t sail away on adventures. [click to continue…]
