The Dark Side of crafting


I have been laughing hysterically every time I glimpse this photo. I love it for all the horrid crafting ingeniousness of it (aluminum Guinness cans) and for the person who put the worlds of Star Wars and crochet needles together at last. But mostly I love it for the man who would dare wear it and get his picture taken with it on. Can you imagine the conversation this would inspire?
"Luke, I am your father."
(Luke flushes with shame) "Dad, take that off. You're embarrassing me."
"Come on, I drank a lot for this. Show the helmet a little respect."
(Luke mumbles and walks away).

Not only does he pose for the picture, he has a totally straight face!
Amazing what these crochet people come up with.

horrid, and yet intriguing... I'd love to chat with the person who envisioned this one... it's always interesting to see how the brain works...

the wall behind that picture has the exact same yellow glow as the wall behind the barbie-sadist-wreath....same sick party? I kind of hope it is!

The awesomeness/freakiness never ends here on GGB!

My boys would love that, but I would have to use diet coke cans.

Maybe this is what really happened to Darth Vader. He didn't actually die, but went on to mellow so much he decided a crocheted helmet would be much more suited to his new softer side.

I can totally see it.

Scarier than the original Darth!

Nope not my creation. I like Guinness and Star Wars but no crocheting for me.
