Geeky Halloween: Incredible Homemade Weeping Angels

Geeky Halloween: Incredible Homemade Weeping Angels

Don’t Blink!!  

It’s never too early to start planning for Halloween, especially if your ambitions are this big.

Check out this incredible build by HalloweenForum poster MacabreRob.

He built not one, but TWO weeping angels (of Doctor Who fame), and describes the entire process – from building the body, to molding the face.   LOVE it… I was thinking what a cool project building an angel would be, but I don’t think I’m up for anything quite this intense for our halloween decor.… [ KEEP READING ]

Tutorial: How to Make the Doctor Who Dalek Cake

As promised yesterday, here are more details on the Doctor Who Dalek Cake.  You know I’m a big believer in showing you that YOU can make a really cool cake, and I do one every year for the Boy’s birthday.  Past years: Angry Birds cupcakesDragon Cake,  Perry the Platypus Cake, and Clone Trooper cupcakes.  So, today I’ve promised some of the details of how to make this cake yourself.  … [ KEEP READING ]

Dr. Who Birthday Party Invitation (downloadable template, too!)

Dr. Who Birthday Party Invitation (downloadable template, too!)

For The Boy’s 7th birthday party, we’re doing a Dr. Who theme… My little anglophile is a big fan of the recent version of the series.  So I needed to design an invitation.  I ran out of time to do printed invites, so this is just going out by email, with a little extra explanatory text.  The “Celebrating” Dalek is quite cute, but I couldn’t resist adding the Tardis Blue envelope from the Impossible Astronaut episode, as well. … [ KEEP READING ]

“Don’t Blink” Treetopper (and more awesomely geeky/crafty Dr. Who links)

Dude!  Totally love this nerdy DIY Don’t Blink Angel treetopper by The Domestic Scientist!  For the non-Dr. Who fans, this is the reference to the weeping angels.

Although I’m not really sure Dr. Who is nerdy anymore now with the modern Doctors. Old school Dr. Who is still nerdy, but I never got into that – I must admit I just love the new stuff (I started watching with Eccleston, and adored Tennant, and now Smith is just too much fun!)

Remote Control Dalek made from Recycling

LOVE this! After getting my inner nerd on at Dragon*con this weekend, I’m all about the geeky crafting. And really, with Doctors as cute as David Tennant (I so miss him!) and the new guy (Matt Smith?), being a Doctor Who fan is hardly geeky anymore.

Awesome step by step over at Filth Wizardry on how the kids made a Dr Who Dalek from recycled materials. Go Check it Out:

Way cool Dr. Who Tardis Cake!

Way cool Dr. Who Tardis Cake!

Check out this nifty Dr. Who cake by Dabbled friend The Domestic Scientist… A Tardis and flying Daleks? How geeky cool! (We interviewed Renee here)

For my birthday I decided to be crazy-go-nuts on my own birthday cake and really push my boundaries as a novice baker. I figured since the only one to disappoint is myself, no harm in trying something that can fail horribly, right? And ya know what, I didn’t do too bad. [ KEEP READING ]
