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:
Susan Beal’s amazing Yoda costume

Natalie Zee Drieu’s Ewok costume for her little Lulu:

No geeky costume roundup would be complete without some Katamari goodness:

Diana Eng came up with this cute Lego costume as part of a Quick Kids’ Halloween Costumes round up:

Another popular costume is this amazing Crocheted Viking:

And finally, this cute dog costume, takes us all the way back to 2009, just when the pirate fad was really hitting its stride:
