Geek DIY: Doctor Who Craft Projects

I love geek craft projects. The only thing I find more adorable than a geek knitting on the bus is a geek knitting a Jayne hat on the bus to wear to the next Browncoat meeting. From TARDIS cupcakes to Dalek dresses, the Whovians are one of the most DIY geek subcultures, and in the spirit of geeky DIY, I decided to share some of my favorite Doctor Who projects. Take a peek. Warning: This post is bigger on the inside.

Adipose Plushies

The cuddliest antagonists since Tribbles. My favorite Adipose DIY toy to date is Erica Kern’s Adipose doll that was profiled on Craftzine. I caught Erica crafting in the line for Doctor Who at Comic-Con this year, and heard she even got the Who crew to sign one of her Adipose toys.

The Dalekettes

I’m in geek love with this cute trio of Aussie cosplayers who surfaced at cons (and all over the internet) last year. They are here to exterminate your heart and they will show no mercy.

Don’t Blink

Blink and you’ll miss the sweetness of this Blink pendant necklace, crafted by UrsulaandOlive for their Etsy shop. A perfect way to show some love for your all-time favorite Who episode.

Would you care for a Jelly Baby…..Cake?

Remember the U.F.O cake decorated with Jelly Babies in Aliens Of London? Adam Wolf must, because he made a wonderful step-by-step post on his blog of how to make a cake with Jelly Babies.

Sweet-toothed sisters Babara Jo and Barbara May take the cake (please forgive me) with their incredible, edible TARDIS. We salute these crafty siblings and hope to see more geeky treats from them in the near future.

Cakes are one of the most popular Who craft projects. David Tennant spoke at Comic-Con last year about how weird it was to see his face plastered on cakes all over England. I wonder how he feels about all the cake love the Daleks get? Did you know there is an ENTIRE Flickr pool devoted to Dalek Desserts? Because nothing is better than devouring, er, Exterminating, a Dalek cupcake.

That makes….306 Type 40’s?

What’s geekier than building your own TARDIS? Building your own TARDIS to house your homemade MAME console, of course. Winner of hands-down the most amazing and most geeky Doctor Who project is Simon Jansen, who built this incredible MAME console

What are your favorite Who craft projects?
