Fallout/Idiocracy NYE Party Planning

Posted By The Mrs. on December 29, 2016 in NerdCrafting

2016 has been a shit show for children of the eighties. Politics aside* we lost a bunch of our favorite people. Carrie Fisher, Elie Wiesel, David Bowie….the list continues with far too many of the good’uns.   If the apocalypse is supposed to include taking up all the good people in advance of the hellfire, then […]

Amazing DeadPool White Elephant

Posted By The Mrs. on December 26, 2016 in NerdCrafting, Our Life

So we have a favorite White Elephant that we go to every year, hosted by one of our buddies from college. It’s a white elephant exchange in that it follows the traditional rules for the exchanging gifts, but the gifts are a little different…I’m told that the name White Elephant for gift exchanges stems from […]

How to Make Zelda Wedding Signs

Posted By The Mrs. on August 4, 2016 in NerdCrafting

When you have a wedding theme that is remotely Medieval/Renaissance you don’t want paper things looking crisp and clean. You want an old timey feel, and that means a lot of time aging paper for signs and other things. Originally I thought about painting the signs directly onto wood, and then I remembered what my handwriting looks […]

Bathroom Update Daenerys Targaryen

Posted By The Mrs. on July 20, 2016 in NerdCrafting, Our Life

Above you can see our current bathroom, the one I talked about updating in the previous post. (Pic is of course, pre me accidentally ripping the toilet holder out of the wall… >.< ) And it’s, y’know…fine. A little out of date, but most of the basics in it are good. I mean, most…a small […]



Zelda Pot Craft Cover

Ocarina of Time Pot Replicas

Posted By The Mrs. on November 18, 2015 in NerdCrafting

The Zelda Pots craft was more time consuming than I expected(it took more than a day with drying time), but it turned out so darn cute and required basically no real skills, just a little imagination…the hardest part was resisting the temptation to smash them for rupees! Supplies Vases shaped sorta like the pots $1-$10 […]



Pumpkins

Pumpkins!

Posted By The Mrs. on October 30, 2015 in NerdCrafting

So not exactly pinstrosity. But next year I’m definitely making Wynn do something way cooler, because the face he carved on his pumpkin required some skills I’m kinda sorta totally missing! I did the Oogie Boogie because I thought having a pattern would make my life easier. NOPE. Not with my pumpkin. Getting a flat […]



Pumpkin Pattern Post

Pumpkin Patterns

Posted By The Mrs. on October 28, 2015 in NerdCrafting

Eep! It’s already the week of Halloween. This month has gone by way too fast…Since it’s, y’know, October, this time for nerdcraft night* I’m going to be carving a pumpkin and I’m having the hardest time picking which pumpkin patterns to use for our pumpkins! On top of that, previous attempts at pumpkin carving have […]

Navi Fairy Cake Toppers

Posted By The Mrs. on September 16, 2015 in NerdCrafting

We settled on Fairies for our cake toppers, and I figured out how to 3D print some! The site user AwesomeA  has done a bunch of models of  Navi. Anyone with a 3D printer can download and print these files for free, or you can have us print one for you by hitting us up on Etsy. I found […]

Prepping for Your Own 3D Printer

Posted By The Mrs. on August 12, 2015 in NerdCrafting

One thing that was really difficult for me was not knowing if I was going to be ready when my 3D printer showed up. Did I have enough space setup?? Did I have all of the tools I would need? Even though I got it with Prime Shipping and the wait was only two days […]

3D Print: Hylian and Kokiri Shield Boutonnieres

Posted By The Mrs. on July 28, 2015 in NerdCrafting

The shields I made for the boutonnieres in our wedding were one of the easier crafts I did, since I have a 3D printer. I downloaded the models from Thingiverse. The Hylian shield was made by Smock13, and the Deku shield was made by haycurt. I loved that the Hylian shield was curved because we printed it […]
