I have to say, as someone who identfies as a huge nerd, I do find translating that into crafts to be both amusing and satisfying. I love reference humor and I’m sort of internet junkie (I know that is shocking news). While I’m more of a fabric and crafts nerd than your classic comic books and sci-fi kind of nerd, where I fall short my geeky boyfriend is more than happy to give me ideas and inspiration. (Have I mentioned he has an entire room full of toys? No seriously, an entire room.) I’ve also gotten some great requests and ideas from people on the internet. For example:
What an adorably grumpy death machine. While I’m more of a DC than a Marvel girl, I couldn’t resist a request I got for this little fellow. The shape was a bit of a challenge, but I’m liking him. He even has a little open engine/exhaust port/whatever that is where his butt is supposed to be. Plus his giant head and tiny little appendages make me giggle. I’ll miss you MODOK. 🙁
And speaking of the Watchmen embroidery, I have to share this awesome project by Allison. I think Rorschach holds the honor of being her very first embroidery project, wow! If anyone else has done anything with these I’d love to see it, please comment.
