pocahontas

Disney Style is all about Disney-inspired fashion. Their latest video is a time-lapse featuring a model being transformed into seven different princesses including Elsa, Belle, Snow White, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Ariel.

I can’t imagine how long hair and makeup actually took to complete, but the adorable morphing princess has a super cute and contagious smile throughout the entire process. And she totally pulls off every single princess perfectly.

Watch the super fun video after the break.

tardis-knitting-needle-gauge

Knitting isn’t just for grannies—many geeks I know enjoy this relaxing pastime. Whether your knitting a fourth Doctor scarf or an Ood mask, crafty Whovians are going need this timey wimey TARDIS needle gauge.

It will measure knitting needles from size 0 to 17  and has a 2 inch ruler along the bottom to help with stitch gauge. At the time of writing Etsy shop Tangerine8 is taking a short break, but you can sign up for updates and order it soon.

apple_2_watch

Sure, you could go out and buy the new Apple Watch, but why do that when you can build and own your very own Apple II Watch? Everyone knows that you should wait for the second generation before jumping in on an Apple product right?

Actually, this is more of a back to the future kind of thing.

The watch runs on a Teensy 3.1 processor and has a 1.8″ TFT LCD screen. It even has tiny floppy drives!

See the watch in action break.

agents of shield scarf

Director Phil Coulson has been feeling compelled to scrawl an alien script on any and every surface since the end of season one on Agents of SHIELD. Tumblr user concertigrossi was inspired by the glyphs and created a double-knit scarf covered in the creepy writing. It’s subtle and fashionable and incredibly creative.

Even cooler? She details the pattern on Tumblr so you can make your very own SHIELD scarf.

DIY Krang Hat

If you’re not fully committed to making an elaborate Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume like this one, you can cheat and simply craft a Krang hat. Instructables user ashleyjlong made the hat for an art gallery project and then realized it would work well as part of a costume. All you need is pink fleece or an already-made pink fleece beanie, felt, black paint or yarn, glue, stuffing, and basic tools.

Creating Krang’s creepy but cute face is pretty straightforward, and this is definitely a project you can tackle in an evening. So, if you still don’t have any kind of Halloween costume to wear, this is a good last minute idea.

creepy cat

The person who shared the instructions on how to make this Cat Sweater with Zipper says “This project features a cute cat sweater which transforms into a creepy cat sweater thanks to the zipper detail!” — but all I see is creepy cat.

Creepy cat and creepier cat.

Still, if you want to make this creepy sweater and call it cute or creepy, you can. Just stay far away from me.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

bat'leth scarf 1

The only way to prepare for cold weather is to arm yourself with warm clothing. I can’t think of anything more fierce than this Klingon Bat’leth scarf designed by Kimberly Gintar. You can stretch out the weapon and wield it and then wrap it around your neck. You can admire it or make your own because the pattern is available for purchase.

See a couple more photos of the scarf after the break.

borderlands pants

Cosplayer Kirameku is working on a Nisha the Lawbringer costume, and she decided to make the jeans look cel shaded just like they do Borderlands. These pants look like they’re right out of the pages of a comic. She painted over denim jeans with a mixture of Textilcolor and water. She did an amazing job adding the highlights and shadows, and we can’t wait to see the finished costume.

When Wonder Woman’s not wearing her bustier, she might like to kick back in this comfortable looking sweater. The pattern was designed by Natalie Bursztyn and is available as a free download. It features Wonder Woman’s iconic colors, the bustier shape, and her gold bracers. This design makes me want to learn how to knit!
