  1. You Can Build Your Very Own BB8 From Star Wars: The Force Awakens Because Science Is Amazing

    BYOBB8.

    We'd heard that BB8, the rolling droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was an actual practical effect, but I don't think any of us really believed it until the world crapped its collective pants when BB8 rolled out on stage during the film's panel at Star Wars Celebration to engage R2 in an adorable-off. Well, prepare your trousers for round 2: you can build your very own BB8.

  9. You, Yes You, Can Crochet Your Own Tiny Wolverine

    Do Try This At Home

    To celebrate the release of the latest X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, here’s a fun themed project you can put together in a day. Much like every X-Men movie, I’ve decided to focus on Wolverine. With each film, the big screen has served as a catalyst to build up his character, so in kind, we will be building up our very own crocheted Wolverine. Even though I enjoy Hugh Jackman’s performance, I like Wolverine the most when he’s covered in yellow spandex. So my crocheted version is inspired by his comic costume. I’ve turned this tough, wiseass into an adorable amigurumi, and with this tutorial, you can too.

  14. Totoro Poptarts, for Your Dreams of Being a Massive, Totoro-Eating Predator

    I can tell you right now, after the "take your pop tarts out of the oven" step of this tutorial, my kitchen would suddenly suffer a massive shortage of any pop tarts to decorate. I think not immediately eating fresh warm fruit-stuffed pastry, not the piping and decorating skill, is really the most impressive part of this project.
