Adventure Time Crafts: Flippin’ Adorable Stuff to Make from the Land of Ooo {Book Review}

 

adventurcrafts

Expressing your appreciation and total love of Adventure Time has never been so fun! If you call yourself a crafty person and tend to dabble in a little bit of everything in the craft world, you’ll love this offering! The bright and cheerful crafts perfectly embody these well loved characters from the Land of Ooo! Sure as a fan you could go out and purchase pre-made accessories and decor but there’s really something special about making it yourself!

There are 23 projects total in this book. What kind of crafting? Well, there’s sewing, crochet, knitting, needle felting, sculpting, painting, and more. The craft pattern categories are Total Toytopia, Bling-A-Ding-Ding, Rhombus Home Decor, & Geek Chic Fashion. Crafters can create felt finger puppets, plushies, jewelery of all kinds, wall art, super cute nail art, pillow, cozies, and much more! I really like the variety!

The patterns are very easy to follow! What I love is before you start a project, each is talked about. That just gives it a more personal touch in which I quite desire in any instructional arts & craft book! Next there’s a “You’ll Need Area” followed by the numbered steps to create the project. Some of the patterns have detailed illustrations as well as full color photographs. Throughout the book there are helpful Adventure Tips to encourage you to try another method if you aren’t comfortable with a certain technique. You’ll also find characters from the show on many of the quoting memorable lines from the show.

One of my favorite and by far the simplest project in the book is the BMO’s 8-Bit Fuse Bead Coasters! There are six designs for these and so easy that younger kids could create them with little help. It’s an excellent craft to do during a Adventure Time marathon to me? Who couldn’t use another coaster or two? But really, you don’t have to stop there. How about a Slumber Party where you have a painting nails sessions and follow the Oh My Glob, Nail Art pattern? If you love to cosplay, the are many projects you can use to create an amazing outfit! There’s no doubt that much creative fun is to be had!

Other things to note is that the book helpfully explains where to buy supplies for the crafts and there are templates that can be copied and enlarged per pattern instructions. The back of the book features a section of helpful website links such as crafty websites to show off your work and the links to the D.I.Y Heroes whom are the artist that created the wonderful projects found within!

Adventure Time Crafts is an awesome craft book that fans of any age is sure to enjoy! If your up for a challenge and an amazing adventure in crafting, you’ll be certainly pleased! I know, I was!

Interested in Purchasing?  Adventure Time Crafts: Flippin’ Adorable Stuff to Make from the Land of Ooo can be purchased in paperback ($13.89) or digital format ($11.84).

Adventure Time: The Complete Fourth Season Review

adventurets4

The two-disc DVD and single-disc Blu-ray release of Adventure Time was recently released! Fans both old and new have something to really be excited about with this collection! I’ve heard it said that this season has many fan favorite episodes! This collection features season 4 in its entirety of 26 episodes (286 minutes of goodness) and there’s a lot of great bonus content to be happy about too!

The special features such as the 19-minute Distant Bands: The Music of Adventure Time is truly something to be seen! I think it’s great to learn more about what how the songs were chosen and what elements they thought important to include. I love hearing from creative people on how the whole choice and selection process of what songs chosen was done.  The slipcase cover is neat featuring Marceline and changing from her hair up to down is fun and something collectors will find pretty awesome.

My household really likes Adventure Time. My kids are ages almost 4 and 6 1/2 year old and really like the fun adventure and fantasy game like elements. It’s amusing, it’s clever, and though over the top at times all nestled together perfectly. Daring quests, unicorns, Gnomes, ogres, Candy kingdoms, penguins, and interesting worlds… what more could you ask for? We’ve recently been watching back season on Netflix to see what we’ve been missing out on and aiming to start collecting all the season for ourselves.

I asked my husband about why he likes Adventure Time. Here’s what he had to say:

It’s hard to do off-the wall story-lines with what seems to be random elements, but Adventure Time has a cohesive world with recurring characters that bind everything together.
This prevents it from being a series of random events that don’t matter.

Relationships grow, change, and make a difference later in the series. The show is mostly an anthology show, and plots don’t tend to continue past the episode, but here and there something that happens in one episode will crop up again in a later one.

Most of all, the show is strange and funny, and strangely funny.

sandwiches adventure time season 4We’d totally recommend Cartoon Network: Adventure Time the Complete Fourth Season
to any fan or collector of the series. Though the episodes stand alone well enough I would recommend seeing these from the very beginning too!

This set would make a fabulous gift for anytime but a great choice for a fan during the Holiday season! The suggested retail price of either the Blu-Ray or DVD is $17.99 and $24.99.
