Epic Chewbacca Cake [pic]

If you use the search on the right and look for Star Wars cakes, you will quickly realize that they seem to be about a dime a dozen these days.  I can’t even recall all of the Millennium Falcon cakes and Death Star cakes I have posted because there have been so many.  However, what there haven’t been many of (if any) are Chewbacca cakes!

This stunning Chewbacca cake was created by the amazing cake makers at Crazy Cakes.  Their slogan seems to be “art you can eat” and I would definitely consider this Chewbacca cake to be a work of art!  Between the beautiful coloring and the attention to detail on things like the mouth and eyes, this is easily one of the best cakes I have ever seen!

I know this is art you can eat, but I think I would rather appreciate it as art rather than food because I would hate to eat something this amazing because that would mean it wouldn’t be around anymore.

Around here, you almost never see anybody riding a Vespa.  With this being Colorado, the weather can change in 5 minutes and you really don’t want to be caught out riding a Vespa during a sudden snowstorm.  However, we do have some nice days where I am and on those days, it would be kind of awesome to ride an R2-D2 themed Vespa around town.

The awesome R2-D2 themed Vespa in the picture below belongs to a 5th grade teacher by the name of Morgan.  Apparently this Vespa was turned into an awesome R2-D2 Vespa with adhesive vinyl, some meticulous cutting and a 12-pack of beer (which makes me kind of surprised it turned out looking so well).  Until now, I have never seen the much appeal in owning a Vespa, but I’d be lying if I said I don’t want one now.

Unless I come across something amazing, I think this will probably be my final pumpkin carving post for 2012.  Its not that I wouldn’t mind posting more, I just want to avoid pumpkin carvings too far after Halloween because posting jack-o-lanterns on Christmas would just be weird.  Anyway, for those that are huge Doctor Who fans (like myself), I thought you would love these awesome Dalek and Cyberman pumpkin carvings!

These amazing Cyberman and Dalek pumpkin carvings were done by Dmitri and Joey (last name unknown).  I’d say they did a fantastic job!  What could be scarier on Halloween than a Cyberman that wants to delete you and a Dalek that wants to exterminate you?

Jack-o-lanterns are cool!

When Super Mario goes down the wrong warp pipe and is sent to a galaxy far far away, one thing is for sure…the plumber will strike back!  OK, that might not be the best opening line I have ever written on a blog post (although I kind of like it when I read it in my head as the deep voice movie trailer guy) but I’m behind schedule today (its been a very bad morning) and it was the best I could come up with given how distracted I am.

Anyway, for those that are fans of both Super Mario Bros and Star Wars, I have a feeling you will love this shirt named The Plumber Strikes Back!  The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this fantastic shirt for just $10 today only!

I plan on buying this shirt today (I love mash-up shirts involving Mario or Star Wars such as the Donkey Kong/Star Wars shirt I wear) and if you love those two as well, I highly recommend you grab a shirt before the deal is gone!  If you are worried, I can vouch for the quality of the shirts that TeeFury sells as most of the shirts I wear I have bought from them.  The price may be cheap but the shirts aren’t!

For most Doctor Who fans such as myself, their enthusiasm doesn’t usually extend too far beyond Doctor Who t-shirts or maybe even some Doctor Who cosplay.  However, the guy that built a TARDIS control room into his house is not your average Doctor Who fan.  Considering I don’t know of anybody else who has done anything similar, I would say this guy has earned the title of the ultimate Whovain.

Australian DeviantART user crazyfoalrus (aka Jayman White) had a hexagonal room in his house so he decided to take a year and turn it into the TARDIS control room.  He built this entire room himself with lumber that he already had and discarded parts from his job.  He even painted the floor and did all of the lighting and electrical work himself.

I am very impressed and slightly jealous!  I wish I had a TARDIS control room in my house!  Check out the source link below for more pictures.

I know Halloween is over and I promise to stop posting Halloween pumpkins soon, but there are just a couple more that I have found that are so good I can’t help but post about them.  This exploding TARDIS pumpkin carving is perhaps my favorite jack-o-lantern that I have seen this year and I am quite amazed at how well it turned out!

This amazing exploding TARDIS pumpkin carving (inspired by the Van Gogh painting in Doctor Who) was crafted by a Whovian known as Elizabeth (I don’t know a last name).

Doctor Who pumpkin carvings are cool and this exploding TARDIS jack-o-lantern is fantastic!
