CRAFT: Geek Crafts
I’ve done my fair share of costume-making over the years, everything from Little Red Riding Hood to the Big Bad Wolf, Elton John to Harry Potter, R2-D2 to The Spy Who Loved His Mommy. And when I run through my repertoire, a decidedly geeky thread shines through. Geek costumes are more interesting, cooler, and just plain fun. So have you gotten your geeky duds on lately?
Here’s a handy roundup of some of the geekiest costumes we’ve featured over the past few years.
One of our more popular posts last year was Goli’s discovery of a Banksy Flower Thrower costume:

Of course, there’s a plethora of Star Wars inspired costumes, for humans and pets, including:
