Groot beanie

If I had to use one word to describe Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, it would be kind. His niceness continues with this fleece hat by Etsy seller The Pink Castle because he’ll keep your head warm and protected. My favorite part of the hat is the little leaves!

The Groot hat is made to order and will be shipped in 1-2 weeks.

GoT dress 4

We’ve seen a lovely Game of Thrones skirt from Etsy shop Frockasaurus, but the store has also listed this attractive dress design featuring the same house sigils fabric. You can represent houses Targaryen, Greyjoy, Lannister, and many more with this black and white print. Dark gray cotton compliments the house sigils, and there’s plenty of pretty satin binding trim. This is going on my wish list.

The dress is made to order, and turnaround time is currently 8-10 weeks.

4th doctor dress

The 4th Doctor’s iconic scarf just got an upgrade. DeviantArt user RebelATS transformed it into a crocheted dress. She was inspired by seeing all the TARDIS and Dalek dresses and wanted to make something unique. She didn’t state how long it took to craft the ensemble, but since it’s 48 inches long, I imagine it was a lot of time with a crochet hook.

She plans to make a halter-top with this pattern and also to turn other items – like Jayne’s cunning hat from Firefly - into crocheted dresses.

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!

Doctor Who shoes

Allons-y! It’s time to pull together some craft supplies (a sonic screwdriver won’t hurt) and make some fancy Doctor Who canvas shoes. Jenny Barnett Rohrs shared the project at Craft Test Dummies and said it only took her half an hour to transform a pair of black canvas shoes into the galaxy. I think it’s worth trying out.

leather masks 1

Since dragons are fictional creatures, it’s hard to say what realistic sculptures of them would look like, but it’s what comes to mind when I see Sarah M.’s dragon masks. They look like they’re right out of a storybook. She’s been drawing all her life and eventually turned her skills to crafting masks from leather.

She kept working and incorporating more pieces of leather until she was able to make a mask like the one you see in the above photo. The scales are individually tooled into the leather and stitched on, and she says, “Each mask takes a ridiculously long time.” The finished product is proof of all the time and effort – her masks are absolutely stunning. And yes, it seems that she does take commissions.

See more examples of her work after the break.
