You were challenged to create something inspired by your favorite superhero. The end results? I am Groot.

As always, be sure to visit the Facebook event to see all of the entries! Also be sure to search the hashtag #geekuary on Instagram and Twitter for more.

My first pick of the week is by Sheena Fratto of Shabby Chic Soap Company. She created a Groot soap! She even created a scent for him: “this scent is modest, pure and natural, just like everyone’s favorite talking tree. A sharp base of mahogany, lemongrass and basil is paired with top notes of lavender, mandarin, lemon leaf and fern, bringing you a woodsy forest scent with just a hint of sweetness. Perfectly symbolic of Groot.”

My next pick is from Rachel Foland, who created a key-chain with Batman and a snuggly cat. Awww!

My third pick comes from Miranda Woodcock who created a wooden plaque that says “Always be yourself. Unless you can be IRONMAN. Then, always be [Iron Man].” A perfect motivational message for a geeky shelf.

I don’t always feature one of my own creations, but it gained many likes on Facebook, so I decided I should. I created a Wonder Woman plush out of felt. She’s roughly 2.5″ tall. I may be biased, but she’s even cuter in person.

Lastly, I present Spawn. Technically he’s an anti-hero, but we’ll allow it. I really like how detailed he is–the studs especially. I also like how his cape billows! Chelsey Scully is the creator of this guy.
