    This is the stunning Calvin & Hobbes time-traveling dinosaur scene that artist and mother Laura Hartrich of Etsy store Tiny Scissor Times embroidered for her son's birthday. It is most impressive. You know, when I was in middle school my mom embroidered my initials into the b... / Continue →

    These are the Iron Throne high heels made by jewelry designer and shoe customizer Nixxi Rose. She used painted sword cocktail stirrers for all the swords. Pretty clever. I also included some BONUS Freddy Krueger, Hellraiser, zombie and Breaking Bad heels she's created after ... / Continue →

    This is the very impressively constructed music video for metal band Throne's song 'Tharsis Sleeps.' The whole thing was shot frame-by-frame using individually embroidered scenes. That...sounds time consuming. Thankfully, they used a computerized embroidery machine instead o... / Continue →

    This is the beanbag Iron Throne made by Isabell Kiko of Nerd By Night (but what are you by day?!). She even includes patterns and instructions if you want to make your own, WHICH YOU DO. Sure yours won't look as good and will start losing its beans immediately, but hey -- you... / Continue →

    This is the crocheted (I always feel weird typing that because it looks so much like crotched) unicorn mask for dogs made by Flickr user roko20. Pretty magical, right? Everyone wants to ride a unicorn. I mean, in addition to riding dragons and pterodactyls. If you could onl... / Continue →

    This is a collection of cross stitch embroidered microbes and viruses designed and needled by Alicia Watkins (links to her Etsy store where they're all available). Great, now I'm convinced I have something. Probably the measles. Psyche -- I was vaccinated as a kid! See, I c... / Continue →

    This is the Big Lebowski rug made by Etsy seller OldTymeNotions. I would have a hard time putting my feet on that. My lips, no problem. You want it, I want it, it costs $800 so neither one of us is going to get it. You like how I haven't made a 'tying the room together' ref... / Continue →

    I was bald until I was two. These are the Cabbage Patch inspired yarn wigs for babies made by Etsy seller TheLillyPad. She'll custom make you one for $33.50 or you can just buy the pattern for $6.69. I'll admit it -- I had a Cabbage Patch Doll growing up. Plus on my fifth b... / Continue →

    This is the alien facehugger winter mask hand-knit and sold by Etsy seller Knitrocious ($150). It looks pretty accurate. Plus nobody will think you're weird for wearing it. And if they do, send them over to my place and I'll answer the door wearing nothing but a gas mask and... / Continue →

    Every year around this time I hang a bunch of paper snowflakes from the ceiling of the living room for a little holiday ambiance. Then I set fire to a trashcan in the middle of the room and pretend I'm an Eskimo. These are the cut-it-yourself Game of Thrones house sigil snowf... / Continue →

    This is the giant Captain Picard quilt sewn by Candy Coated Quilts (those sound sticky). Can you think of anything better than waking up to the giant face of Captain Picard staring back at you? "Tons of things." Well sure, but it still beats the hell out of a dog or cat's @$... / Continue →

    Astronaut Karen Nyberg made this stuffed dinosaur toy for her young son out of scrap supplies she found aboard the International Space Station. Hopefully not anything important like I would have done. "GW -- where did you get that big red button?" I found it. "Found it wher... / Continue →

    Come on now -- how you gonna make your own serving dish and then serve OREOS? You know what my last party was missing? Anybody having a good time. There also weren't any dinosaur serving trays. Coincidence? Absolutely -- despite what Martha Stewart might have you believe, ... / Continue →

    It's ever turtle's dream to be big and tough like Bowser. And now, thanks to this guide from Squirrel Picnic, you can make your own little Bowser shell for your special reptilian friend. Don't have a turtle? Make one anyways and put it on a loaf of bread. Don't have a loaf ... / Continue →

    This is the giant Link bead sprite created by Redditor BoxMacLeod (links to a gallery of even more of his work). It is most impressive. I used to be into Perler beads myself but I'd always iron them for too long and the whole damn thing would melt into a blob. I suck at froz... / Continue →

    Caddisfly are a species of moth-like insect that, when in their larval stage, spin a web of silk and attach whatever materials they have around them to it for protection before climbing inside to pupate. So you know what French artist Hubert Duprat gave them? A beret, baguett... / Continue →

    The 3Doodler (not to brag or anything but I've actually been 4doodled before) is a pen that 3-D prints whatever you draw. Think of it as a hot-glue gun except with instantly-hardening plastic. You can dry with the plastic on a flat surface and then peel it off for 2-D objects... / Continue →

    This is the crocheted Dwarf helmet and beard made by DeviantARTist SadDaysCrochet (similar in fashion to these ones we saw before). Crocheted is a weird looking word, isn't it? I had to double and triple check to make sure I wasn't saying crotched. Because a crotched helmet ... / Continue →

    SOULFUL PATCH BROBRO. This is a crocheted knight's helmet for sale by Etsy seller HattieHooker. You know, I was friends with a hooker once. She was always asking if I wanted a HJ but I could never tell if she was being serious/if I'd have to pay. That never happened. $40 g... / Continue →

    This is a leather Majora's Mask wallet crafted by artist Jacob Vadnais. Apparently he makes and sells them in his Etsy store but there aren't any for sale right now because how could wallets this cool NOT go like hotcakes? Just look at the detail. It's really...what's the wo... / Continue →
