Um, today's we're just going to focus on the good ones.
Yep, in honor of all of the Star Wars celebrating today, I've got some fantastic kids' room crafts I've been saving up - and the very best part? They're all made by you Epbot readers!
First, remember Kimber G. and her amaaaaazing Millenium Falcon blueprint mural? (If not, go see! I'll wait.)
So, yeah, remember that?
Well, Kimber decided that next her kids' playroom needed a little something. You know, like an X-Wing-fighter-fleeing-an-Imperial-Cruiser-over-the-planet-Earth kind of something.
Here Kimber's kids admire their mom's handiwork with the respect it deserves:
And here they attempt to hug it backwards. I think.
And now, the very thing every Star Wars bedroom needs:
A custom carved Star Wars headboard! Amber B. had her husband and father build this beauty for her three year old son, Gavin. Check out the raised Rebel crest with his name in the middle!
But of course my favorite part:
"That's no bed knob..."
Say, you guys look like you want to see another awesome Star Wars mural.
Your wish = my command.
Jason J. painted these next scenes in his wife's nephew's room. Jason reports, "He wanted the Battle of Hoth, and since Ralph McQuarrie is my favorite Star Wars artist, I decided to put several of his concept art pieces together into one large battle scene."
And what a scene it is!
Check it out, I found the original piece that inspired that last scene:
Rock on, Jason! And the rest of you can see more of McQuarrie's art (which really is amazing) here.
And finally, for you parents out there who may not want to tackle murals or woodworking: how about
Karen V.'s mom crocheted these for her last Christmas, proving that just 'cuz your kids are grown doesn't mean you can't still spoil their inner geek. (Although apparently Karen gave her a pretty strong hint by buying her mom the patterns sometime after I posted about them way back when. Hee.)
Things like this always remind me how much I wish there was a local geek girl craft class around here. You know, like the cake decorating classes John & I took at JoAnn's, only it'd be stuff like knitting Star Wars characters and forging armor and wiring up nixie tube clocks. (I WILL do that before I die, guys. I will.) Can one of you out there please get on that? And then include Orlando on your nationwide geek-girl-craft tour? Kthxbai.
And finally, I'll leave you with a picture of one of Marnie B.'s students during their school's "Crazy Hat Day:"
This girl's gonna be alright, you guys. I CAN FEEL IT.
Happy Star Wars Day! MTFBWY!
