It’s no secret that geeks have plenty of time on their hands. These fanboys and girls have used that free time to geekify their Halloween experience with these ultra-cool projects. They also have been kind enough to share their methods.
MAKE YOUR OWN GREEN LANTERN RING
This geek gives you step-by-step instructions on making your very own Green Lantern ring, from carving a wax model to painting. You need a certain amount of expertise, but nonetheless it looks damn cool.
MAKE YOUR OWN KLINGON PUMPKIN
This project is a bit easier — all you need is a pumpkin, a daq tahg, a tea light, and a steady hand. Oh, and a love for all things Klingon.
MAKE YOR OWN PIE OF SAURON
Sweeten up your Halloween with the all-seeing Eye of Sauron Pie, forged in the fires of Mount Doom (actually it was forged in the oven of a geek gal named Deirdre). This LORD OF THE RINGS pie “was rimmed with fire, but was itself glazed, yellow as a cat’s, watchful and intent, and the black slit of its pupil opened on a pit, a window into nothing (but blackberry).”
MAKE YOUR OWN HAN SOLO EN-QUESO’D IN CARBONITE QUESO DISH
Serve your geek buddies in style this Halloween or any time with this chip-and-dip tray in the form of Han Solo frozen in carbonite, just as Greg Johnson did.
MAKE YOUR OWN ROBOTIC DALEK PUMPKIN
This is the king of geeky Halloween projects. Those geeks over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories took a pumpkin, rubber wheels, a few motors, and a radio system — and created a radio-controlled robotic Dalek pumpkin. It even turns its head. We’re impressed! You can view a video of it in action on YouTube.
